A Message From My Parents On Easter 2016.

Yesterday I had a good example of my parents communicating to me from the spirit world.  A friend sent me an Easter card and in it they had the video of the song “Here Comes Peter Cottontail.” I had forgotten about this song long ago and how my parents would play that song for me when I was a little girl. The moment it started playing I started crying because of the memories that it brought back of a time when life was safe, secure, and filled with love.  So I take it as their way of saying hello when I really needed it.  Thank you Mama and Dad.  You knew I was feeling alone and it was your way of letting me know I was still loved. You were the best parents anyone could ever have. I look forward to the day that we are reunited once again.

So many people write to me and want to know how to communicate with a deceased loved one. The way the departed communicate is quite different than what we are use to in this third dimension. So if you start looking at subtle messages, such as the one I received you might start seeing that you are being contacted by your loved one.

What is the Significance of Easter Eggs?

easter-eggs

Its common knowledge that Easter is a Christian celebration of Christ’s rising, but this holiday also has pagan origins. Where did the colored eggs, cute little bunnies, baby chicks, leg of lamb dinners, and lilies come from? They are all symbols of rebirth and the lamb was a traditional religious sacrifice.

Easter falls in the spring, the yearly time of renewal, when the earth renews itself after a long, cold winter. The word Easter comes to us from the Norsemen’s Eostur, Eastar, Ostara, and Ostar, and the pagan goddess Eostre, all of which involve the season of the growing sun and new birth. The Easter Bunny arose originally as a symbol of fertility, due to the rapid reproduction habits of the hare and rabbit.

Long hard winters often meant little food, and a fresh egg for Easter was quite a prize. So you can understand why this full moon was often referred to as the Egg Moon.  Later, Christians abstained from eating meat during the Lenten season prior to Easter. Easter was the first chance to enjoy eggs and meat after the long abstinence.

The egg is nature’s perfect package. It has, during the span of history, represented mystery, magic, medicine, food and omen. The egg represents the rebirth of the earth. The long, hard winter is over; the earth burst forth and is reborn just as the egg miraculously burst forth with life. The egg, therefore, is believed to have special powers. It was buried under the foundations of buildings to ward off evil; pregnant young Roman women carried an egg on their persons to foretell the sex of their unborn children; French brides stepped upon an egg before crossing the threshold of their new homes.

It is the universal symbol of Spring celebrations throughout the world and has been dyed, painted, adorned and embellished in the celebration of its special symbolism.

Traditionally, the eggs were marked with brilliant colors along with various types of bands drawn upon them which represented the cycles of life, death, and rebirth. Other symbols representing the triple Goddess, the Sun, and such shapes as triangles, squares, circles, and dots can usually be found. The drawing of special signs upon a symbolic object as with the eggs is a form of magic, as is done when creating a talisman or amulet.

Now you understand why eggs are colored at this time of year.

Whatever your beliefs are enjoy and celebrate them during this holy time.

Wishing you, and those you love, the blessings of a glorious Easter.!

How to Plant a Lollipop Garden for Easter

lollipop garden-500x375

Create magic and enjoy the wonder of a child’s imagination as they watch the Jelly Beans grow into their own special Lollipop Garden.

The night before Easter, have your children plant their Jelly Beans. Have fun as your child carefully digs little holes and “plant” a jelly bean in each hole. Let them rest overnight.  Once they are asleep, carefully place a lollipop where each bean had been planted and in the morning, your children/grandchildren will have an amazing surprise.

Your children/grandchildren will delight when they see what grew overnight – a Lollipop Garden. This makes a fun twist on the traditional Egg Hunt as well.

If you have an incredibly perceptive child, make sure you replace the same color sucker with the same color jelly bean that your child planted.

Get your little ones really excited about what can happen when we all choose and share our joy, and the impact it can have in the lives of others. Use this as a teaching tool for the character quality, you can ask your kids questions as you are planting the jelly beans, and use statements such as, “What do you think happens when we plant seeds of loving kindness every day?” Or “Why is it so important to plant seeds of joy into other people’s lives?”

Not only will you children or grandchildren have fun, it will help them think about others who may not be as fortunate and what their needs maybe. This helps instill what the true meaning of Easter is about.

Easter blessings,

Full Crow Moon March 23, 2016

crow-moon copia

The full moon in March has many different names due to its signifying changing from winter to spring. It’s Time to Set Yourself Free from the Restraints of Winter and Swim to the Moon! Full Moon: March 23, 8:01 A.M.

Winter Retreating – the Beginning of Springtime!

Use this extra Full Moon energy to make the necessary changes in your life.

The March 23, 2016 full moon is called Crow Moon, Worm Moon, or Storm Moon. The ruling sun sign is Aries, which gives us a full Air moon in Libra.

The full moon in Libra is an ideal time for ceremonies and rituals to promote friendship and working with others.  You can use healing rituals if you have had problems with family and friends. Visualize your life and relationships in balance as Libra is the sign of justice and balance.

The Native American full moon names for March are largely based on these being considered the last full moons of winter; the crow caws its farewell to the season. The more northern tribes knew this Moon as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter; or the Full Crust Moon, because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night.

Full Worm Moon (Algonquian Name) – As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins. The Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is another variation.

To the settlers, it was also known as the Lenten Moon, and was considered to be the last full Moon of winter.

In Celtic tradition it is called Chaste Moon and Moon of Winds.

In Native American Medicine the Crow represents: Justice, shape shifting, change, creativity, spiritual strength, energy, community sharing, and balance.

So let’s remember the gifts that this period brings and trust that this is a good time of reflection and revising your journey in life. In the grand flow of life, these inward moving energies are conducive for fine tuning and helping to bring greater clarity, awareness, and focus

Spring is the Best Time to Clean Out Your Life — Start With:

You can take your time and do this cleaning over the next few weeks. It will benefit you enormously on your spiritual path.

I feel that all full moons are a special time for us to connect to the Great Spirit as well as the moon. Do something special in honor of this full moon.

Be Blessed at this Holy Time

palm-sunday

Today is the start of Holy Week and Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday celebrates Jesus procession into Jerusalem where people threw down palm fronds to celebrate his entry into the holy city. Many religions process around their churches waving palm fronds and crosses as a symbol of this triumphal event.

No matter what your belief may be this is a spiritual time and a reawakening of our true spiritual self.

“The Christ, He who was in the ancient of days, is the flame of God that dwells in the spirit of man. He is the breath of life that visits us, and takes unto Himself a body like our bodies.

He is the will of the Lord.

He is the first Word, which would speak with our voice and live in our ear that we may heed and understand.

And the word of the Lord our God builded a house of flesh and bones, and was man like unto you and myself.

For we could not hear the song of the bodiless wind nor see our greater self walking in the mist.

Many times the Christ has come to the world, and He has walked many lands. And always he has been deemed a stranger and a madman.” ~Kahlil Gibran in Jesus The Son of Man

Take time out of your busy lives and reflect on the spiritual blessings that are being poured out at this time. No matter what you may be going through the blessings are still coming and it is up to us to recognize the miracle of each day.

Too much political correctness has made it unfashionable to have faith and talk about it openly.  I will choose to continue to have faith because without it I would have nothing.

I believe without a doubt in the Divine Creator and know that every day we need to pray just like we take a shower, eat, and sleep. In all things give thanks and be prayerful.

May you be blessed now and always,
Cherokee Billie

Happy Ostara March 20, 2016

Ostara 2

Round and Round and Round I go.  Changing as the Seasons Flow. Young to Old, then Old to Young, Life has Finished, yet Begun. Never Fear for passing Time, Never Fear you’ve Passed your Prime, With Changing Woman in your Heart Whatever has Ended can still Start, Whatever that is Old can be Renewed, From Black to White to Rainbow Hued. So Don your Turquoise, Dance your Dream Let Changing Woman Reign Supreme, The Let your Winter turn to Spring And Know you can do Anything!

This is the day that Beautiful Mother Earth brushes off her cool white blanket of snow.  We have survived another winter and now it is time for us to awaken our spiritual and physical self as we continue to blossom and grow.

Ostara was a mother goddess of Northern Europe who was honored as the bringer of the dawn and of the springtime.

Some authors say Ostara derives from ancient Celtic and Saxon spring holidays, later Christianized into the Easter holiday. Others argue this and other neopagan holidays are modern creations. Either way, many religions celebrate holidays during this time of year, including the Hindu Holi, Jewish Purim, Sikh Hola Mohalla and Christian Easter. Celebrate this time of the year in whatever way makes you most happy.

It is time for us to spiritually shed the dead parts of winter from our souls and make way for the new growth that is being released at this sacred time.  This is your opportunity to advance your soul growth. Do not let this moment pass you by.  It is easy to say that I will do it tomorrow or the next day or the next day, and soon you will discover that ten years have gone behind you, and you will wonder what you did with your life during that time.

Blossom just like spring flowers and continue to get deeply rooted in changing your life and becoming a gentle spirit that blesses everyone you encounter.  Just like angels and fairies send blessings as they pass by let this be your gift to everyone in your life.

Clean and shine the diamond of your soul and let that light shine before everyone, so that people wonder as you pass by-what it was that just touched their soul.

This is a wonderful time of year and definitely the time to send out your dreams to the universe.  By doing this you will see the growth of what you have put out.

Many blessings,

Great Ways to Enjoy Springtime

Hello Spring

Everyday Things

Spend 5 minutes each day relaxing and meditating

Concentrate on your surroundings, the sensations in your body and the feeling of tension dissolving. As you get into the habit you may like to play music, my meditation video or a visualization CD, and extend the time to half an hour. Remember that ten minutes per day are worth much more than an hour at the weekends – your subconscious is a creature of habit and responds best to repetition.

Get outside in the fresh air for 5 to 10 minutes a day

Walk, take deep breaths, do stretches. As time goes by, try to increase this, so that you walk, or run for up to half an hour.

Make sure you get out into nature each week. If you are a city-dweller make this a weekend routine.

Treat Yourself …
To a massage or full spa break.

If You Find It Hard To Think Positive …
Try hypnotherapy with Cherokee Billie for a wonderfully relaxing experience that can change your mind at a deep level.

Sign Up For A Yoga Class
It does wonders for all sorts of complaints, increases your sense of the spiritual and can help you lose weight.

Choose an exercise that you like, and do it.

Dancing to your favorite tunes every day for ten minutes in your living room is much better than taking out an expensive gym subscription that goes to waste. Be honest with yourself about what you like and can realistically accomplish.

Avoid Diets

It’s so negative being told what you can’t eat and having to plan calories, which can have you obsessing constantly about food.

Instead Focus On Positives. Make sure you drink two liters of water per day and have loads of fruit and vegetables. You won’t have the room, or the inclination, to eat bad stuff.

Some Ancient Rituals

Be sure and invite the Angels into your home! Learn how by clicking Here

Rub an essential oil into a candle, or heat it in an oil-diffuser. It will lift your spirits.

Leave A Glass Of Water In The Spring Sunshine …

for half an hour, then drink the energy of the growing light.

Light a Bright Yellow Candle

Watch the flame. Imagine the resurgence of life within the earth and imagine that the light of the sun is shining from your own solar plexus. Say “I welcome the bright sun, inside and outside.”

Try Ginseng And/Or Licorice …

To banish fatigue, green tea for oomph, peppermint or rosemary teas for gentle stimulation. Avoid anything that contains caffeine, for the temporary high will be followed by a low. (Always read labels and consult a professional if you are using ginseng or licorice for more than a couple of weeks)

It’s time to shed the dead parts of winter and following some of these suggestions can help you start enjoying springtime.

Springtime blessings,

Spring Vernal Equinox 2016

SPRING copia

“Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!” — Sitting Bull

The Wheel of the Year – Occurs on or near the Spring Equinox, when day and night are equal. It is a time of balance where unnecessary things, thoughts and habits are thrown away to make room for the new.

Astronomically speaking, the spring equinox falls on March 19 or March 20, 2016. Here are all the Equinox times for North American time zones this year:

  • Saturday, March 19, 2016 at 9:30 PM PDT
  • Saturday, March 19, 2016 at 10:30 PM MDT
  • Saturday, March 19, 2016 at 11:30 PM CDT
  • Sunday, March 20, 2016 at 12:30 AM EDT

Other names for the Spring Equinox are Alban Eilir, Gwyl Canol Gwenwynol, Lady Day, and Ostara.The feel-good factor about this day, however, is that the first official astrological day of spring hints that high temperatures are not far off.

As the winter ends traditionally Native American people celebrate their thanks with prayers for surviving the bitter, cold days and the struggles they had to overcome. With spring everyone begins to enjoy the bounties of the earth once more, as plants and animals show new life again. The land turns green, wildlife flourishes and people are filled with anticipation for the coming of summer, the time of harvest.

It’s important to remember that the dawning of spring has been observed for a long time in many other cultures as well. Traditions vary widely from one country to the next.  March 20 also welcomes Ostara which is celebrated in spring season as a way to honor the richness and wealth that Mother Nature has brought to humans and creatures. Spring is considered as the period of growth, happiness and love. In this time of a year, everything is woken up from winter and they are full of vitality.

Springtime is a wonderful season to celebrate with much merriment and shared feasts, as families gather together, dancing and enjoying the gifts of the land. Just as those in ancient times find a reason to give thanks for being here another day. Do something special to honor the fact that you are still here. Celebrations and rituals are important in our spiritual walk.

It is a time to offer thanks in prayers, celebrations and gratitude to the Great Creator who is watching and filling those who care with blessings.

Spring Blessings,

Saint Patrick’s Day Facts and Myths

Most of us associate Saint Patrick’s Day with green beer, leprechauns, pots of gold, shamrock’s, and a chance to let go and party. So here is a bit of information about this day that you may not have known.

St. Patrick’s Day started as a small, religious holiday in Ireland. And believe it or not, for the first nearly six decades, bars had to stay closed because the holiday falls during Lent. The law was lifted in 1961; and now, 13 million pints of Guinness are sold around the world on March 17th.

Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland.  He is credited with bringing Christianity to the Irish.

He lived in the 5th century, which is like 16 centuries ago.

The shamrock became part of the celebration, when it was said that Saint Patrick would use them to describe the Holy Trinity to children.

Here are several infographics I found that share all kinds of awesome stuff about all things Irish and green.

Wishing you a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day!
