We have just moved into our new place, on acreage a little bit out of Brisbane.
Due to living in the “bush”, we had to change to the sole internet and telephone provider available in this area. This meant that the email address changed.
If you ever changed your email address, you know that you can miss to notify a few people easily….well... I did.
That was around the time I used to connect with like-minded people once a month at an Angel gathering. I loved connecting with other souls through meditation, Psychic readings and chatting about spiritual "stuff". We practised our gifts or recovering/discovering new ones.
This will be relevant soon…bear with me….
So back to the new place we now lived at.
One day, a few months maybe a year in (not sure if Mercury might have been in retrograde?) the computer crashed. Fabulous… right?
I brought the pc to the shop to be revived. The computer tech set the emails (by mistake?) onto the last provider’s email setting (I had no idea that one could do that).
It then so happened that I had numerous emails on the old account which I haven’t seen yet.
One in particular caught my eye.
It was an email from one of the Angels from the gatherings.
This Angel asked me if I would like to read my Angel cards (and do my Psychic “thing”) for “real” people at a place called the River House (some of you might know this place)…. and of course I will get paid for my readings.
Oh wow! Until now I only read for family and friends; you know, always practising. There were feelings of excitement and of fear all wrapped into one. The Universe and Angels just presented me with CHOICE and an OPPORTUNITY.
I decided to give it a go! After all, I have done the Doreen Virtue Angel course, and I know how it all works right? I do receive insights from the Angels… but... “real, paying” people, still was a scary thought…the responsibility…suddenly my passion became REAL.
I went and had a fantastic day. I just LOVED it! I loved being of service, guidance and assistance.
So…. If the computer hadn’t crashed…and let me tell you, I wasn’t too impressed when it happened….and the computer tech wouldn’t have put the “wrong” email setting (I had a few things to say about that too…), I would have never seen this email.
I believe because I took this opportunity, other opportunities have arisen later.
Spirit decided that it was time for me to venture out into the “real” world and “interfered”.
Yes, I did ask for guidance and how to read for “real” people...
You ask you receive, as simple as that.
Always keep your asking positive and uplifting, ask for what you WANT or BETTER.
The Universe will deliver the way it sees fit, always for your highest good.
A few months later a lady at work handed me a piece of paper.
Oh, there was a psychic fair in my neck of the woods and they needed Psychic readers!
My workmate had assumed that I am already part of it, after all, I am a Psychic reader and I live where the fair took place.
You guessed it; I had no idea that this event was happening,
I rang the number on the bottom of the piece of paper and applied for the gig, by giving a reading over the phone.
This was my start to participate in Psychic Fairs around the Brisbane area.
Spirit does work in mysterious ways and the timing is always right. It is then up to us if we want to take the opportunity or give it a miss.
Trusting our abilities and having faith in ourselves is vital, but remember, the Universe would not present us with opportunities we are not ready for.
So sometimes we just need to jump over our own shadow and take the plunge.
Trust and listen to your Intuition and always follow your heart.
I am grateful to all the people who played a vital role and to the people who still play a vital role, to get me “up and going” and hold my back. I am grateful to the Angels and Universe for always holding my back and pushing me into the right direction and towards opportunities.
Some may say that I am lucky…
I say, that I took and that I am still taking opportunities that present themselves, put in the hard work, sprinkled with a lot of passion… call it lucky if you want :)
If you follow your passion and put in the work you WILL succeed.

When you have to say NO, for whatever reason...
Saying NO, doesn't seem to be easy for many of us.
NO is made up of the #5 and #6 vibration...FREEDOM to EXPRESS yourself and to CREATE.
It holds the energies of PEACE, TROUBLE-SHOOTING and SPIRIT.
Maybe that's the reason why, so many of us find it hard to say.... especially to people we care about.
NO holds a beautiful heart centred energy. Maybe that is why we find it hard to say... when in reality we COULD say YES.
You know... when we make up a "white lie" because we don't want to hurt the other person. When we do that, the energy of NO will rub us up the wrong way, so to speak. We feel UN-EASY within ourselves because we are not true to or honour its energy.
Remember what we say or think holds immense energetic power, as every letter of the alphabet has a number and its energy associated.
That's why we need to be mindful of what words we are using
Next time you have to, or need to say NO... STOP... BREATHE... look into your heart and remember that NO holds
Create PEACE & HARMONY by saying NO from the HEART .
Love & Light
Every year, for the last ...hmmmm....15 years, on New Year's Eve I do an Abundance & Protection Spell.
On previous years I shared the Spell through "email downloads". This year I thought, why not share the Spell in a blog post for easy copy pasty or share :)
This is the perfect time to get ready, as you will need a few things.
And let me tell you.... this Spell truly works :)
Just a quick share.... last year, as we were Overseas, I started to collect foreign coins for the Spell. I put them in a safe place in my Healing Room, so I can find them easily when the time came to do the Spell. Ha, you guessed it... the coins were gone! And let me tell you I searched low and high, upside down... nothing.
Not too long ago I cleaned out my Healing Room (I do this a few times a year) and.... voila... found the coins... Angels playing "silly buggers" with me... Anyway they are in a safe place for THIS years Spell ritual (smiles), which means.... that you will get foreign fortune coins :) for 2020!
So here we go... sharpen your pencils or your copy paste/ share buttons.....
You will NEED:
*Yellow or Gold candle for Abundance
*Straw Broom (I just use a "normal" broom as the INTENT counts)
*Bunch of Yellow Carnations or Flowers in season for sun energy
*Frankincense oil or Incense
*Salt for cleansing and protection
On New Year's Eve or in the week before, clean and tidy your home.
On New Year's Eve, using the broom, sweep all corners of your home thoroughly.
As you sweep, visualise the energy of your home for the next year (your dreams/wishes/fortune).
Place the candle, incense, flowers and coins in your living room (living room table)
After sweeping and clearing away all remains, light the yellow candle.
Burn the incense or oil - the energy of the flame is important.
While the candle and incense are burning next to your flowers and coins on the living room table...
Walk through every room of your home and sprinkle a pinch of salt in each, while you recite the following:
I banish all negativity from every corner of my house and prepare for new energies to come in.
I seal each area and invoke the power of the NEW YEAR to bring my dreams to fruition during the coming time.
When you are done, extinguish the candle and oil.
The following day and day's after that give visitors a coin each to spread the good luck and happiness.
I keep mine in my wallet... signifying that I never run out of money.
At the end of the year, you can spend your lucky coin.
Off you go... collect the shiny, silver coins so that you are ready on NEW YEAR's EVE
Much Love, Fortune & Protection
SIGNS... are you aware of signs that your Angels, Spirit Guides and Loved one's send you?
I personally LOVE signs... even if sometimes I don't know what they mean right at this moment in time OR how to interpret them...
Let me tell you a story...
For a few weeks a pair of crows came to our house daily, always around the same time, flying into our windows (and let me tell you, my windows are not clean), seeming to peck at insects (that was my thoughts anyway).
The first time they came my immediate thought went to... who died? As my mum always said, crows bring death, or let you know about a passed over soul.
This happened daily for weeks! It gotten to a point where I googled... on how to deter crows...
To say the least Google was not much of a help as the suggestions varied from buying an Owl statue, hanging up shiny objects (which I already have) to shooting the crows.... not really what I was looking for.
On a Monday morning at 4am, I found our much loved kitty-cat Miss Doris in a dire condition.
As I had to go to work (early shift) my husband took her to the animal hospital, which is located just around the corner from where he works.
Already crying my eyes out, I said my goodbye's as I had a feeling that I won't see Miss Doris again.
I put my sunnies on (to hide my tears) and went to take the train to work. At the train station I was approached by a man who did a survey for Queensland Rail.
Jeez, really? Anyway, I told him we need toilets in ALL the trains. That was the best I could come up with teary eyed.
Sunnies back on... board the train.
The lady next to me, decides to take a book out.... with the title.... I LET YOU GO!
Thank's Angels.... more tears....
Walking from the trainstation to the Hospital... there was a crow (just one) attacking, what I first thought was a Rat, but turned out to be a baby Possum.
Possum baby saw me, and I kid you not, ran straight between my feet (I wear big shoes to work. This was the perfect hiding space for baby Possum). Now this never happens or does it?
At this time a lady approached. She said that she would call RSPCA to come and collect baby Possum, as there was no mum Possum in sight.
Have you ever Googled... Spiritual meaning of Possum?
Possums will play dead in dire situations, yet this one came running up to me.
Yet again .... death....
By that stage I truly knew that Miss Doris is going to go over the Rainbow Bridge.... yet, still keeping a glimmer of hope.... maybe the signs are "wrong" or I interpreted them "wrong".... clinging to hope never the less.
Shortly after the Vet rang.... her words were.... It is time to let her go.....
And the crows? They have stopped to visit our house....
Coincidence? Maybe... I let you be the judge.
The survey at the trainstation? Not sure what that was about....
Signs are all around us. It is then up to us, to be aware of them or to deny them.
As hard as it can be.... for me, signs are and will always be a comfort. Something I can rely on and trust in ... even if it isn't pretty or happy news.
We miss our spunky (as a client of mine used to describe Doris) Doris terribly....
As I said many times.... this life/death business sucks big time.... but it is part of us.
The number 13 holds the sacred feminine, intuitive side... the Goddess/God within.
Did you know that there are 13 moon cycles in a year?
Today being a full moon, the 13 holds amplyfied energy!
The number 13 is made up of the number 1 and 3.
Today is a great day to make decisions (use your hightened intuition), to start something new or start to build foundations for the future. Today, it pays to be a realist and get the head OUT of the clouds and to see things as they are.
Today focus on what is important for YOU.
If you feel creative... you may want to team up with a buddy! and have some FUN!
On the flip side...
Today can bring some "FEELS". Emotions may run high and all may seem just too hard...
If that is the case... FOCUS on your breathing, happy thoughts, do something fun or creative... or have a coffee catch up with a friend.
You may even feel a little nervous or highly strung....
13.9.2019 adds up to a #7 day (1+3+9+2+1+9).
The #7 is the number that holds the spiritual quest. A great day to pursue your goals and aspirations with determination.
A great day to clear the foggy mind (meditation) and start taking ACTION!
Bring it on!
Love & Light
YES, it was my Birthday yesterday the 23.8.
With every Birthday we not only get gifted presents and are showered with love... but we also are gifted a new energetic field or personal year energy.
Being born on the 23.8. this means I have started my personal year #7 (2+3+8+2+0+1+9 = 25 2+5=7).
To make things worse (or better?) I am also a Life Path #7.
What does it all mean?
Let me tell you....
People with a #7 life path like to learn form their own mistakes (go me!), therefore somewhat rejecting guidance (yay... go me!).
People with a #7 life path like to learn through personal involvement (hands on!).
The positive is... once they have learned the lesson it is for life. Making the same mistake twice is very rare, even unheard of.
The #7 life path souls have a deep philosophical understanding. They recognise and believe that everything occurs for a reason and has a purpose.
What they are really good at is... reading between the lines. It is very hard to Bullshit a Life Path #7!
They are gifted with a strong intuition. Picking up on higher frequencies is child's play for them.
Life Path #7 souls love their privacy and alone time. Water (YES to the beach/ocean!) brings great balance into their life.
Just in case you are interested..... #7 is ruled by Neptune (visions, dreams, psychic and metaphysical abilities).
Anyway... so now, here I am the Life Path #7 in a personal year #7.... all good right?
Well... maybe not ....
The #7 is the number of sacrifice (I had my share... Thank you.... no more... Thank you)... but... at the same time it brings a lot of guidance.
The trick for me now is.... to LISTEN to the higher guidance. This may come from the out - or inside.
The good thing is that... in a personal year 7 metaphysical and spiritual matters are of great interest (oh YES! watch this space!).
What does this mean?
New workshops (teaching or taking... and I have already signed up for a few workshops this year! AND planing on teaching a NEW one very soon...)
The URGE to teach will surface (YES... I feel a new workshop coming on....)
This is a year where I truly NEED to listen to MY Intuition (for myself... for others it works well).
This is a great year for mental cleansing and laying the foundation for inner strength.
Spending time near water (hellooooo beach) will bring benefits on all levels.
This is a great year to write (journal started....)
Letting go of other people's problems....might be a little harder, but I'll try
Sooo if I see the glass as half full (counting my blessings) and listen to my intuition.... reconnect with me, myself and I.... TEACH.... spend time near the water .... then.... Major spiritual development is in the cards...
The trick for a fantastic personal year 7 is to LISTEN!
Wish me luck :)
Love & Light
Has this ever happened to you?
Here I was in a local shopping centre running my errands.
Picking up photos... posting them off overseas.... then the big one... Food Shopping (hate food shopping).
I was using my Bank debit card all morning, paying for all the other stuff, without any problems.
Then. I don't know what happened, standing at the cash register wanting to pay for my groceries.... OMG I couldn't remember my pin! My pin I used all morning.... GONE!
Helloooooo Numbers are MY THING! How can I forget Numbers?
All I could say to the cashier was: OMG I just forgot my pin! And whatever I tried it just did NOT come back to me....
Behind me was an elderly lady, which stated: " I hate when that happens".
Oh right.... I am only in my fifties! Thoughts started to race through my head (while I was still trying to remember those damned numbers). How can I forget 4 numbers? Do I need to get tested? Because, Toni, you know, your great-grandma suffered from Dementia maybe even Alzheimers... All these thoughts... but no PIN. No lousy 4 numbers....
I had no other choice but to leave my trolley, run to the bank teller and get some cash out.
Now, on that day, while shopping, a million thoughts raced through my head, mainly business ideas.
Yes, I was close to the Angels and Spirit, receiving downloads (ideas & inspirations).
So, I probably was a little too stuck in the spirit world, not grounded enough, not really in the NOW of what I was doing... and... my energy slowly "detached" itself from the physical, here and now.
I love my spiritual work. I love what I do, so much so, that at times I do have to reel myself in to connect with the physical aspects of my whole being. After all, my soul is here to EXPERIENCE! And this can only be done on the physical level, where there is thought and feelings (at least I think so).
It is super important to ground ourselves (I love to go to the beach or walk barefoot in soft grass), so that Spiritual GROWTH can occur on a physical and spiritual level.
If you don't ground yourself you will feel imbalanced and irritated (or forget things like I did).
So, saying that...probably, stamping my feet at the cash register would have helped? Food for thought....

If you read my previous blog, you might remember my struggle with my weight, my constant mood-swings and constant tiredness.
You might remember also, that I decided to take myself to a Naturopath.
Since last August I find myself in a personal year #6, which stands for Relationships, Love, Creativity... As I always "harper" on to others... the Relationship you have with yourself is THE most important one.
So it was time for me to take my one advice.
My first visit at the Naturopath was... well, let's say it opened my eyes. Here I thought my body was in perfect health, as nothing (other then the left knee) really hurts. Just tired, moody and overweight.
After the consult I was sent home with an eating plan and a piece of paper of what NOT to eat.
Not eating certain foods, well o.k.... but one of the rules was ONLY 1 COFFEE!!!! a day.
From let's say 8 cups to 1.... HUGE difference.
I said to myself : Come on Toni you do have a determination arrow in your birth chart. Surely you can do this?
Ha, I was so determined to get this right, that I decided to have NO coffee... you heard right form 8 to 0!
My next appointment was 2 weeks later. I behaved, followed the eating plan and took the supplements.
Born as a Ruling/Life Path #7 I was highly sceptical. Ruling #7 don't trust easily... but my intuition told me that I was going down the right path for me.
Anyway, 2 weeks later I have lost 3kg and 7cm around my waist (bye bye bloating! bye bye fat and retained water) and I was feeling less moody and had more energy!
Happy Dance? YES!
I am now at week 10 (and I, yes, I sneak a coffee here and then.... BLISS) and YES I do fit in my size 14 tight jeans quite comfortably, they may be even a bit lose on me....
Am I glad that I listened to my body crying out for help? YES
Am I glad that I asked help? YES
Am I glad that I introduced change and changed my habits? YES
Am I glad my body works as it should again? YES
Did I recommend this Naturopath to my friends, family and clients? YES
YES YES YES
The moral of this story is.... listen to your inner voice. Even if it costs a little money... remember YOU ARE WORTH IT!
Happiness comes from within.
I suffered from a leaky gut... Which in spiritual terms translates to ... giving the power away (solar plexus chakra - yellow chakra).
Healing my tummy (my spiritual centre) translated also to being more in tune with myself, others and the Angels.

MONEY MONEY MONEY....or the lack there of....
Money makes the world go round... or so they say... but is it really?
My background with money comes from a LACK there of. Don't get me wrong, my sister and I always had what we needed. With the emphasis mostly on the NEEDED.
I saw my mum struggle to provide us kids with "fun" things, like going to the movies or a puppet show (yes, I am that old...lols), when we were in need of shoes or clothes.
My mum was a master, as we never felt that we missed out! How she ever done it I don't know.
Anyway, why I am telling you this?
The LACK of having money was instilled in me from a very early age. This was all I have ever known to be the truth. Money = struggle street....
Because of this mind-set, it was a constant struggle ( I didn't know any different).
Until, one day a friend said to me.... "why are you so tight with money"?
Why? yes why?
So I decided to do something about it, as it was very stressful for me to constantly check the bank balance to make sure that there was "enough".
Exactly at around that time, the Angels placed Jacqui Blackmore from InnerZing in my path, and I decided to have Body Talk sessions. You know, to clear this old pattern of LACK and replace it with ABUNDANCE. Starting a new chapter.
And it worked wonders! I started to feel FREE!
No need to check the bank balance constantly as suddenly TRUST of being ABUNDANT was there.
Until.... little reminders pop up, from the past.... like yesterday....
Out shopping, I bought some Easter bags, which, I swear, I saw, cost $2.
At the checkout they scanned nearly $7 and needless to say, this catapulted me right back to the past and I started to hyperventilate!
I had to really STOP myself not to return the items. Instead, I took a few deep breaths and reminded myself that I am abundant (and they were pretty bags after all) and that it is o.k. to sometimes have nice things that are NOT on sale.
The point I am trying to make is.
Nice things don't need to cost a lot of money to bring joy in ones life's, but if they do cost a little more, and you LOVE them, it is o.k. to have them too.
Money is all but an energy exchange. One energy for another.
It is o.k. to WANT money!
The more you have, the more you can spread around :)
Trust me, you will never forget where you come from.
If you come from a past of LACK like myself, you will appreciate even more what you have today.
And let me tell you, it doesn't take much for me to do a happy dance :)
Am I GRATEFUL? YES
Do I think that I am ABUNDANT? YES
Why not heal your past or present and change the outlook and the relationship YOU have with money. Allow the energy to FLOW! by removing the BLOCKS!
Does money make the world go round?
Energy makes the world go round.... if money is energy... you be the judge :)
If you are still reading..... Thank you :)
If you are interested on how to remove money blocks, sometimes all you need, is to have a better understanding of yourself and your life lessons.
Yes! NUMEROLOGY will highlight YOUR struggle street. If you know where the LACK is coming from, you can do something about it.
If you want some more info or would like to book yourself in for a closer analysis.... give me a hoi :)
Love and Light
Like so many women, I too struggle with my body changes and mood swings.
Some days I feel very aggressive... I know, you may think... No way, that doesn't sound like Toni. Let me tell you, this is VERY REAL. The Blessing (or not) may be that I am totally AWARE of how I behave.
It is a total roller coaster of feeling happy, calm and balanced to feeling and behaving like a lunatic. Yes, bulging eyes, wild hair and flinging arms - Cruella DeVille like.
And the weight.... The more I exercise and cut out "crap" the more weight I put on? What the?
And all the weight seems to sit around my tummy, hips and thighs.... just GRAND!
Buying new clothes is just not on! I refuse! Do you hear me Angels and Universe?
My affirmation at the moment is.... I do fit COMFORTABLY into my size 14 K Mart jeans (so God, the Angels and the Universe help me). Pathetic (I know) but Important for me (mad I know)
So, what's a girl to do, to feel good in herself once again?
Meditation and Reiki are the number one go to tool for me. My spiritual work always leaves me happy, balanced... content. But I can't live my life in the Spirit World with the Angels (food for thought), I am here on earth on a physical realm, to experiencing the physical.
I felt that I need "outside" help. Soooo I started working with a Naturopath.... and.... this Lifepath #7 has to listen to advice. Not easy.... but I can do it (so God, the Angels and the Universe help me).
Watch this space.... it should show me in my size 14 jeans very soon!
I know it is not the clothes size that matters (there is a blog about this somewhere too), but... there is always a but... this is a great guide for me, a physical guide where I feel comfortable in my own skin. Then reality is.... I don't won't to end up like my mum.... grossly overweight, uncomfortable, ill and not able to move or tie my shoe laces by myself.... and leave this earth at a very early age (miss my mum every day, especially now).
I love myself too much for that. I don't care that people say..... You look o.k.... I DON'T FEEL O.K.
This is all about ME MYSELF and I... and my FEELINGS.
No matter what is going on in your life, how big or small the problem is, or what you need help with, don't be afraid or embarrassed to go get help or ask for help
Life is short, let's spend it happy.
I think I just got side-tracked..... allowed the writing to flow....
And YES, I always see the beauty and light in people and NOT their size.
If it comes to myself.... that is (unfortunately) still the first I see (my size... always did always have). Something I (still) need to work on, as it totally goes back to my childhood and this blog just highlighted it (again).
Start writing.... start sharing.... and together we move forward with ease and a light heart (and body).
YAY for AWARENESS right? :)
Love & Light
