I have a minister friend who begins a lot of services with "Everything's a mess and all is well." These two realities are both true. On the human level, we can experience a lot of messiness. Look at what's happening in Ukraine. What a tragic mess! And yet, anyone who has touched their divine nature, knows that at the divine level, we experience wholeness. As embodied divine human beings, it's complicated because we experience both realities: the daily messes of human emotions, opinions, actions, and relationships and the inner knowing of total and perfect Love, Joy, and Peace. We exist on all levels at once and holding it all in our human awareness at once: the suffering and the joy, can be tricky. I've found I just have to open my heart wider and wider and breathe into and through it all.



Last night, I heard the word "blessiness" as I was somehow able to practice the talk I'm giving tomorrow at Unity of Bellevue, while I was lucid dreaming. I was practicing the part of the talk where I discuss human messiness alongside divine wholeness and the word "blessiness" popped in. We bless the mess in all of the learnings and opportunities it affords for more compassionate understanding of ourselves and others and acting from that place of heightened awareness. And we transmute the mess into divine blessing, knowing that our greater good is always unfolding. The universe has our back and ultimately all is well.


How does your spiritual or energy practice help you with blessiness?

Introducing: The Mystical Clarity Oracle Card Deck

by Lindsay Elvig with Monica McDowell


We are so excited to introduce you to our new oracle card deck! My daughter, Lindsay, designed every card and the two of us wrote the guidebook together. We're launching our kickstarter campaign this Wednesday! Be sure to follow our pre-launch page here to get all the early-bird deal notifications and all the updates on our progress.


Mystical clarity brings you…

…connection to your true nature, your mystical oneness with all that is.

…intuitive knowing, helping you discern the greater path, the bigger truth for you.

…insight as you co-create a loving world with your spiritual team of angels and guides and all of nature as your co-creators.


How to work with our Mystical Clarity Oracle Cards


In our deck you’ll find…

Number Cards

Timing Cards

Season Cards

Pendulum-Type Cards

Guidance Cards

Chakra cards


You can use our Mystical Clarity Oracle Cards completely on their own or in addition to other divination cards or systems. In some oracle card decks, upright v. reverse positions have meanings. In MCOC, some cards have reverse meanings and are noted in our guidebook.


You may use whatever spread and whatever shuffling method you choose. Before you shuffle, just make it clear what spread you intend to use and before you deal, make your questions very specific. If you need to, split the deck into two decks for ease of shuffling. Or you can use the cards by type of card only.


Like what you see? Join our campaign here, then on Wednesday, February 23rd, make a pledge to get your Mystical Oracle Card Deck (plus lots of tiers to choose from!), and look forward to enjoying the Universe’s messages to you! And please spread the word, so we meet our goal!

I’m asked a lot, what the energy downloads I get on the regular (with energy headaches often accompanying them) mean? The other day, I was asked again with the query, “Is it like refueling the gas tank?” And I replied without thinking, “No, it’s more like adding colors to my palette.”


With each energy download or attunement (Reiki lingo), I receive more healing vibrations available to my healing repertoire. I expand my ability, I expand what healing energies I can send or channel, I add more notes to my instruments of healing. This is true for anyone receiving new energies, new ideas, or new consciousness. How these energies take form depends on what the person uses the energies for—healing, creating, writing, inventing, etc.


We’ve been painting our world in a lot of gray tones in the past few years. How would you like to color your world in the present moment and in future moments? If you have access to an adult (or any age) coloring book, take some time to play with coloring in the black and white and gray tones with vibrancy, with beauty, with variety, and diversity. Healing is all about vibrant vibrations and colors are just another form of vibrations that we can use to color our life and world. I love to color in mandalas, which help to balance, integrate, and expand our energies. Here's one I love for fall, called Autumn Joy. Print it and have fun coloring, painting, or penciling it in!

You can also use colors in energy healing. See my Painting Your Aura video here.


May your Autumn be full of rich, vibrant colors, even amidst the gray!
