• Fulfillment – My Theme Word for 2017

    Did you choose a word or phrase for the year 2017?



    For the last few years, it has become common for people to choose a word of the year to describe a theme or feeling they want to achieve.

    For me, my word of the year or theme is FULFILLMENT



    noun: fulfillment

    1. 1.

    the achievement of something desired, promised, or predicted.

    “winning the championship was the fulfillment of a childhood dream”

    • satisfaction or happiness as a result of fully developing one’s potential.

    “she did not believe that marriage was the key to happiness and fulfillment”

    1. 2.

    the meeting of a requirement, condition, or need.

    “the fulfillment of statutory requirements”

    • the performance of a duty or role as required, pledged, or expected.

    “the need to eliminate excess by the security forces in fulfillment of their duties”



    I love the word fulfillment because it gives me a goal to strive for doing what I set out to do. It also describes a feeling of satisfaction.

    You know, I work hard, and there are many times that I feel busy, but not fulfilled. When I set my sights on accomplishing goals that make me feel fulfilled – that make my life more pleasurable and give me more of a feeling of satisfaction – it puts a different spin on my work. It makes me focus more on figuring out how to spend more time doing the things that I love, that make me feel fulfilled.

    My focus is also on working smarter and not harder. 

    And for me, this means that I should evaluate HOW I spend my time and what I can do to be more fulfilled. Working can be a good thing – it pays the bills and gives me the means to do more fun things, BUT it takes something away from fulfilling myself in my relationships – which are more important to me than money. So, I have to figure out the best way to spend my time to optimize my feelings of fulfillment.

    Fulfillment, to me, also represents the big theme of doing what I’ve said I would do. So, I need to honor my goals and what I need to do to achieve them. I need to do what it takes to be healthier: go to the gym 3 times per week, do yoga most days, find positive ways to deal with stress and to minimize the stress I have to deal with (this one is huge for me). I also have to eat better.

    Aside from personal goals, I have my business goals as well. Last year, I really diddled a lot of time away on social media. I didn’t keep up with my business posts for my OWN business. I hardly blogged for myself at all. Most of my time and energy was put into building This year, for a few reasons, I intend to work full-time for myself and part-time for them.

    And I want to do what I set out to do. I don’t want to continue to make big plans for myself and then not work on them – not achieve them – that makes me feel unfulfilled. That’s one of the biggest reasons I chose fulfillment as my word.

    At the end of the year, I want to feel fulfillment because I’ve embodied the spirit of fulfillment during the year.

    Blessed be,


  • When Is The Best Time To Start Working On Your Goals?


    Is New Year’s Day the best time to start working on your goals?

    As the New Year approaches, many of us are busy making plans, resolutions, and vision boards in hopes that we will achieve all that we desire in the coming year.

    The best thing to remember, though, is that the best day to start working on your goals is TODAY and the best time is NOW!

    When you think about it, what you do now – in each and every moment – influences what your future will be like. If you want to see big changes in your life, you have to start making small changes in the moment.

    But don’t overwhelm yourself with a bunch of big changes all at once, though. Remember that change happens over time and that better is better than the same old same old!

    And remember, too, that you don’t have to wait for a specific date, day, or time to start making changes that lead you to your dreams.


    What can you do to start making positive changes today?

    • Figure out your top 3 priorities. Make sure that you keep the most important things in your mind as you plan out changes that you will make.
    • Break it down. If better health is a priority for you, brainstorm about real, meaningful changes you can make in your daily life. Make these changes trackable. Start tracking them daily!
    • Find a buddy. It is important to have support from people who are working toward the same goals as you are. If you want to grow your business, seek out people who are also working on growing their businesses, too. Support and commiserating can help a person achieve more than she could by going it alone.
    • Remember you will have setbacks. Life can get interesting and throw curveballs into your plans. Just remember that you will have times when you can’t work on your goals (like when the flu hits your house or you go through some big life changes).
    • Don’t let setbacks make you give up. Just get up, dust off, and start where you are. You will have stops and starts – especially when working toward longer-term goals. It’s normal. Don’t beat yourself up over it.

    Set yourself up for success in 2017!

    I’ll help you discover what is important for you to work on, then create a plan that works in your life, and I can even hold you accountable to make the changes you need to make to actually fulfill your desires! Chat with me or set up an appointment for a Skype Coaching Session.

  • 2016 Overview – It Was Better Than I Thought

    Hello My Dears!
    The year 2016 was super busy for me, and I ended up manifesting a LOT of the desires I had set in place. I didn’t even realize how much I achieved until I started writing this blog post!


    This year I:

    • started working for as a Psychic Liaison, recruiter, and as their primary social media manager (I also do chat based readings there). This project took a LOT of my time and energy at the beginning and now that I have that under control, I’m going to work on building myself again.
    • traveled almost quarterly for work. This is one of the goals that I wanted to work toward. Like a lot. I want to get out into the community – to talk to people, to help them grow as individuals and in their businesses (if that’s how they choose to work with me), to teach Reiki and Tarot, to speak, to meet other fabulous people on my journey. TarotCon in Florida opened up something that I knew was there – some calling to live and work there. I saw Florida as divinely magical. We’ll see how that progresses… And I was also in Amsterdam to meet up with the team!
    • manifested a LOT of both good and bad things! LOL! I really learned to be careful about what I wished for after I manifested a beagle who was a handful and a half and really not a good fit for my family as she was much too aggressive toward my boys! I set the intention of getting a BEAGLE without doing the research. But, I also manifested so much more, like my mistletoe and our coming trip to Florida in February which should help with my SAD.
    • started giving readings in person in Vienna. My friends Clementina and Viktoria invited me to start doing readings in person in the 22nd district of Vienna about once a month. Now, this is totally something that was on my wish list, and something of a baptism in fire, as I do the readings there primarily in German! It’s fun, though, and I highly recommend stopping into Organic Lifestyle if you find yourself in Vienna. After my kids are a little older, I’d like to get an office to work out of, hopefully near Neubaugasse and Mariahilferstrasse.
    • lost focus on the most important things in my life and found it again! I’ll admit that this year was BUSY and that I spent far too much of my time and energy on things that frustrated me or were totally unnecessary (arguing politics, for one thing). Luckily enough, I had some flash of insight about what is truly important and what is just sucking the life out of me. In 2017, I am vowing to myself that I will not give so much of ME to things that just don’t matter. I’m refocusing on my family, my career, and YOU!


    I also taught a class with the Tarot Summer School – which was a fabulous experience! I met so many wonderful people and ended up expanding on my Spiritual Business Basics class. I’m hoping to participate in Tarot Summer School again in the coming year.

    So, wow! Looking back I see that it was a far better year than what I initially remembered. I accomplished way more than I thought I had – personally, professionally, and spiritually!

    Next year, I hope to travel MORE – Chicago, Florida, a Tarot Cruise from Texas to Mexico, Amsterdam, Germany… maybe even New York and totally CALIFORNIA!!!

    I plan on writing more, sharing more, being more present in my life and in the lives of others in a positive way.

    I hope that your 2016 was better than you realized, too – and that 2017 if magnificent for you!

    Blessings to you and your family!

  • Free Writing with the Angels – The Process


    Free writing with the angels is a process that helps to open up your connection with your soul and with Source in order to get your creative juices flowing and write inspired and inspirational blog posts.

    As a blogger, I totally know the ….. (blank mind) that many of us face when sitting down to write a blog post, and free writing is one way that you can get over the … and on to great writing.

    Now remember, this process is something that should be easy to do. Don’t allow yourself to over-complicate things or to over-think what you are writing. The best thing to do is to not think at all: just write!

    Here is the process I recommend that you use to free write with the angels.

    1) Center and connect

    First, close your eyes and turn your focus to breathing. Breathe in for a count of four, and out for a count of four. In for four and out for four. Do this until you feel calm and peaceful.

    Next, imagine your feet growing roots out the bottom. Picture those roots traveling through your floor, through the layers of the Earth below you – right down to the very center of the Earth. From there, the roots travel back upwards – again running through the different layers and levels of the Earth, absorbing all the knowledge and wisdom that reside within the Earth – and then the energy from your roots meets back up with you at your feet, traveling up through your body, all the way up to the top of your head and out your crown chakra. Now, imagine that your crown chakra is open, and that a glowing white beam of light, runs right into your crown chakra, and gently fills your entire being with the light from and connection with Source energy.

    Take a moment to feel the meeting of these two very wise, very inspiring energies in your heart chakra area. Allow the warmth and energy that flows to you to travel all the way out to your fingertips.

    2) Call on the Angels – especially Archangel Gabriel – to help you write what you need to share with the world.

    3) Start writing.

    When you open your eyes again, go directly to either a blank blog page or word document and start typing, or open up a notebook and do things the old-fashioned way. Write everything and anything that comes to mind down in your document – don’t filter, correct, or edit. Just write.

    You might want to set an alarm for 15-30 minutes. Write until the alarm goes off. That way, you won’t give up too quickly.

    4) Review and refine

    After you have written from your soul, you can go back and see if there are any great themes or topics that came up in your writing. You can either pick those out and refine them, or just proof and edit your free-writing session and publish it as an impromptu piece.

    When using this free writing process, you can choose to write about a specific topic, or you can choose to connect with a certain entity as a basis for your writing session. Do what feels right. Adjust the specifics according to your beliefs, needs, and time allotments.

    Writing for your blog needn’t be a dreaded task – it can actually be fun! Centering yourself, calling on the angels, and free-writing will allow you to open up to Divinely Guided messages and to the Muse Within. The more you use this practice, the better your results will be.



  • The Three Most Important Things about Choosing and Using Images in Your Biz



    As we all know, a picture is worth a thousand words – and sometimes, you don’t even need to say so much about a topic if you find a picture that expresses what you want to say. Choosing profound images to highlight the meaning of your message is one of THE top skills that someone who is developing a Light Worker biz needs to learn.

    There are a few things that you should keep in mind when choosing images for your business (blog, social media accounts, printed materials, etc.), so that you can maintain the continuity of your brand and also CYB (cover your butt) against potential lawsuits and plain old hassle.

    Here are the 3 most important points to consider when choosing images for your blog.

    1) You can’t just search for an image on Google and use it in your blog.

    This is a point that many Earth Angels and Light Workers who are new to blogging do not realize, and one that has the potential to cause the most hassle for a blogger – and potentially cost an Earth Angel Business Owner. When you search for an image on Google or even when you scan in an image that is on a tarot card you have, the image belongs to the person who took the picture, the artist who drew or painted the image, or the person who produced and distributed the deck. There are terms and conditions for their usage, and many times, the right to use an image must be given by the artist who owns it or purchased either from a stock photo vendor.

    The person who owns the picture you use has the right to ask you to remove it from your site. They have the right to look at how many click-throughs you get and demand payment for the number of times the image has been seen by others. It is not just a free for all kind of thing, and getting caught and sued can cost a pretty penny.

    So why not avoid the hassle from the get go?

    How can you find images to use on your site?

    Take your own.

    Taking your own photos allows you to KNOW that you own the rights to a picture, and also to use it – repeatedly and without worry – across all of your different platforms. I’ve taken pictures of my crystals, of scenery, and of this and that I can use anywhere I need to use them. If I am inclined, I can also list the photos on an image site and start making money from them, or I can upload them to a free site to allow others to use them!

    There are both paid and free sources for images on the internet.

    My personal faves are: – They have a FANTASTIC variety of images and really good prices. Their terms and conditions allow for unlimited usage and you have access to a variety of different sizes that you can use on different projects – from the largest of banners at a holistic fair to your business card images. – This is a ‘free’ image site, but it is very wise to double check with the artist to make sure that s/he has released the usage rights to an image that you want to use.

    You can also contact an artist directly.

    Most of the people who I have contacted regarding using their images have been very generous with allowing me to use their work – AS LONG AS I gave the credit for the work to them. When you are adding an image that an artist has given you permission to use, you simply add the caption,  ‘Image ©nameofartist, artist website. All rights reserved.’ to the bottom of the image. Easy peasy!

    **You MUST get an artist’s permission to use his or her work on your website, your printed materials (including your business cards), and your social media sites. If you do not, you may receive a Cease and Desist letter (stop that and take it down before I sue your pants off!) – and if you do not comply, the artist has the right to sue your pants off!

    Google search with contribution to the artist. You CAN search Google for images to use on your website, but you need to double check the details for specific user rights. Here’s how to do that!

    • Enter the image you would like to find in the Google search box.
    • When the results come up, you will see a box that says, ‘Search tools.’ Click on it.
    • You need to choose the option ‘Labeled for Reuse with Modification.’
    • Find an image that fits your needs.
    • Click on that image.
    • See what User Agreement/Rights/Attribution Agreements have been assigned to the picture you’d like to use.
    • Attribute the photo properly. Generally speaking, the pictures should be labeled ‘Image ©nameofartist, artist website. All rights reserved’



    2) You want to tag your images with your name and website.

    When sharing a message or a quote on social media sites like tsu, Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook, it is important to tag your photos with your name or a link to your website. When you direct people back to your work, or when you remind them of your name, they will begin to associate you with the good guy stuff! This means they will be able to find you, your work, and how to get a hold of you so that they can work with you.

    Don’t miss out on this opportunity by failing to give yourself credit and point people in your direction!

    3) You should use congruent images (a.k.a. the same image, text style, color scheme, etc.) throughout your website, social media sites, and printed materials.

    You don’t want to confuse your potential clients and fans by having extremely different images or color schemes on your website when compared to your social media or printed materials. It is really important that your color schemes, images, and verbiage (words and how you say them) carry over from one media to the next so that people have no doubt that the Earth Angel they were enchanted by at the party and who they are keen to work with is actually the same person who runs the website that the card directs them to – and that point can be confused if the images and messages do not match!

    Start with those points and expand from there! They are THE most important things that any Earth Angel or Lightworker business owner will need to know about using and choosing images for his or her website, social media, and printed materials.

    I hope this serves you well.

    Blessings and wishes of prosperity,
    Sue Ellis-Saller
