"All we will ever know and share about love, humility, compassion, and sacrifice - the secrets that will reveal and then resolve old sorrows - awaits us within ourselves." ~Guy Finley
Today, March 23, we have a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in the astrological sign of Libra. This penumbral lunar eclipse will be visible from most parts of Asia, Australia, North America and South America. (http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/lunar/2016-march-23)
Libra is an air sign of the zodiac and some characteristics associated with this include fairness, justice, balance and grace. This is the second of four eclipses this year. All eclipses help us to break old patterns that aren't serving us and assist us in making healthy positive changes in our lives. A lunar eclipse emphasizes emotional reactions, endings, clearing away what no longer serves us and healing. The effects of eclipses can last up to a period of six months.
What does this mean for us? It has been quite a month for us with energetic shifts. We had the New Moon Solar eclipse in Pisces a the beginning of March which was a catalyst to get in touch with our feelings in our personal world and our outer world- and how we are all connected. It was also looking at our dreams, hopes and visions. Then came the Spring Equinox/Sun entering into Aries, which helped to shift our perspective to focus on new beginnings. Now we have the Full Moon Lunar eclipse in Libra to end out the month- this is where we are healing old emotional negative patterns with ourselves and others in regards to relationships. How and what we see in our inner world is reflected in our outer world. Their seem to be a lot of opposing forces taking place this month which can be very challenging. This is an opportunity for compassion, unconditional love, gentleness, kindness, forgiveness, and understanding for ourselves so we can have this for others. It is a time of reflection on facing the truth, healing and seeing the light within ourselves so can break past patterns of old emotional negative patterns and bring in peace and joy in all our relationships, especially the one with ourselves. All of these energy shifts are supporting our personal transformation so we can align with our authenticity. Their will always be some conflict or challenge along the way; but with the guidance and support of Spirit and the angelic realm; we will always rise like the Phoenix to start again and co-create with Spirit our true heart desires.

I was guided to pull a card from the Nature's Whispers deck by Angela Hartfield (artwork by Josephine Wall). The card: #18- New Experiences and Possibilities. This is message reminds us that new experiences and possibilities will be presenting themselves as we move forward on our life path. Allow Spirit and the angelic realm to guide you. The sky is the limit. Connect with Mother Nature to keep your heart and mind open to new experiences and possibilities. All of the flowers in the picture are in bloom and represent (in general) new opportunities and the butterfly in the picture symbolizes your personal transformation. Listen to your heart and trust your intuition. Stay grounded so it will help you stay in the present moment; this will help you become more aware of signs and synchronicities along the way. The number 18 in angel numbers mean: "Your thoughts are the valve that opens and shuts your financial flow. As you stay positive, all the material resources you need come to you easily. However, worry can stop this flow, so ask your angels to help you stay upbeat, especially where it concerns money."

Hello everyone, I was guided to pull a card from the Nature's Whispers deck by Angela Hartfield and artwork by Joesphine Wall for the SPRING EQUINOX which is officially today, March 20, 2016, and the Sun moves into Aries. *Don't forget to check your weekend messages, here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/SpiritualConnectionswithChristine/photos/a.366556780072151.83658.362285513832611/1041701915890964/?type=3&theater
The card: #21- FRESH APPROACH- It's the first day of Spring and new energies are coming in to assist you in co-creating with Spirit the life you desire. Think outside the box and be open to new ideas and inspirations. Spring means rebirth. New energies coming in will help you focus on your true hearts desire. Realize who you are and what it is you want from life at this moment. See yourself through the eyes of love, for who you are truly are, which is love. Take a moment to reflect on all you have accomplished and be proud of yourself. Allow your goodness and light to shine through as it will lead you forward on your life path. Remember you are on the right path and being divinely guided. The number 21 in angel numbers mean: "Your optimism is definitely warranted! The angels are working behind the scenes on your behalf right this very minute. You can help support the angels’ work by saying positive affirmations and believing that your dream is already manifesting." Love & Blessings, Christine Halliwell ATP 🌈❤️💐🌠🔆✨😊
I was guided to pull a card from the Journey of Love deck by Alana Fairchild and artwork by Rassouli for an extra message for this week of March 14-20, 2016.
This is in addition to my Weekly Angel Oracle card reading for this week, here is the link: http://youtu.be/UJ8nKcfgr2U
The card: #21- SHE IS THE MOON. This is very synchronisitic with Full Moon Lunar eclipse in Libra coming up on March 23, 2016. (This is in addition to the Spring Equinox on March 19/20 and the Sun moving into Aries on March 19, 2016.) This card is telling us, “all is coming in Divine timing.” Full Moons are a time of manifestations and endings which are the start of new beginnings. New clarity and insights also come with the Full Moon. If you are worrying that nothing is happening and things are not moving fast enough, the moon is saying to you that it is on its way and just allow it to come to you. Worrying too much just pulls the energy away from that which is coming to you. Do not worry or try to force things to happen. Go with the flows of energies and have faith and trust that Spirit and the angelic realm will bring you what is in your highest good in Divine timing.
The number 21 in angel numbers mean: "Your optimism is definitely warranted! The angels are working behind the scenes on your behalf right this very minute. You can help support the angels’ work by saying positive affirmations and believing that your dream is already manifesting."
*I will have a blog up soon about the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra. *

Welcome to my blog, Spirit Connections! Thank you for taking the time to read, comment and share my posts.

This is an excellent quote I came across that provides insight on the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces today: “Be not the slave of your own past - plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with new self-respect, with new power, and with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Today, March 8 (or 9th depending on where you live in the world), we have a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces. The total solar eclipse will be visible from parts of Indonesia including Sumatra, Borneo, and Sulawesi, and from locations in the Pacific Ocean. Observers in northern and eastern Australia, in South Asia, and in East Asia will be able to see a partial eclipse. The eclipse will begin at 23:19 UTC on March 8, 2016, and its maximum point will take place at 01:59 UTC on March 9, 2016. Totality will last for 4 minutes and 9 seconds. (this time and date information is from the web site: http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/solar/2016-march-9)
Pisces is a water sign of the zodiac and is associated with emotions, psychic abilities, intuition, spirituality, dream states, compassion and charity. This is the first of four eclipses this year. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon stands between the Sun and earth, cutting off the light of the Sun. This is what we typically think of when we use the word "eclipse," with the moon covering the Sun. All eclipses help us to break old patterns that aren't serving us and assist us in making healthy positive changes in our lives. A "Solar Eclipse" emphasizes new beginnings and bring things to light which can help shift our perspective on new beginnings coming into our life. The effects of eclipses can last up to a period of six months. This is a great time to set new intentions based on your true heart desires.
What does this mean for us? That is a huge question for this month because there is so much going on energetically and astrologically, but the word "change" would definitely be a key word for this month. We have two eclipses this month, (the New Moon Solar eclipse today and the Full Moon Lunar eclipse at the end of the month) the Spring Equinox and planetary shifts as well. Their is definitely a "change in the wind" for this month of March. The energies are very powerful and being in the sign of Pisces brings in unconditional love and compassion, creativity, heightened awareness, increased intuition, vivid dreams and profound healing so we can fully align with our life purpose. Pisces, which is a water sign of the zodiac, and is a deep feeling energy. You will be feeling extra sensitive and your emotions will be heightened, so remember to be kind and gentle with yourself and stay away from drama and negativity. Call on Archangel Raphael for any healing you need so you can create room in your heart to receive new love in all forms. Set new intentions based on your true heart desires. Take action steps you feel guided to make but you do not have to rush the process. Go with the flows of this fluid Pisces energy and take one step at a time. As we approach the Spring Equinox on March 19, things will continue to get clearer and you will be ready to take more action steps to manifest your true heart desires.
I was guided to pull a card from the Nature's Whispers oracle deck by Angela Hartfield and artwork by Josephine Wall for the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces. The card: #50- Potential Gateway. New beginnings will be coming into your life. All your knowledge, wisdom and experience will assist you in making new decisions about your life path. Take time to contemplate what you really want to do, what are your true heart desires? Notice the shape of the heart within the tree; this is letting you know that your heart holds the answers you are seeking and will lead you through the new potential gateway that will align you with your authenticity. Staying grounded, centered, and connected with Spirit, be at peace knowing all will work out for your highest good. A new gateway is opening-allow Spirit and the angelic realm to guide you and let your love and compassion lead the way so new life energy can begin to grow. “Be not the slave of your own past - plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with new self-respect, with new power, and with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hello everyone, here are the results for your personal messages for Monday, March 7, 2016, using The Spirit Messages deck by John Holland. *Note-The extra card and message of Compassion (which is below this post) is very synchronistic for all the cards and messages for today. Allow unconditional love and compassion from Spirit fill your heart so you can be open to new beginnings coming your way, starting with the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces occurring on March 8/9 (depending on where you live) 2016.
CARD#1- LISTEN- "You have to be willing to listen if you want to really understand someone. Now is the not the time to be offering advice, but to be a compassionate listener. To listen fully and intently means to pay attention, not to just what's being said, but to what lies beneath the words." This message is letting you know that someone needs you to help them, in the way of being a good listener. Listen with your heart. When you are engaged with someone who needs you to listen, both parties benefit because they will actually solve the problem by hearing their own words and you can also receive answers that you have been asking Spirit and the angelic realm. (Remember- the answers to our prayers can come in many forms.) Also, being a good listener helps you with your own compassion for yourself and others.
CARD#2- LET GO- "Once you let go of the outcome, you'll be able to release all the emotional constraints that have held you back in the past. Trust in the higher good and guidance of Spirit, as we have only your best intentions at heart and will do everything in our power to protect you." This is a reminder to let go of what is not serving you and also to let go of trying to control the process or outcome of a situation. Notice the leaves falling from the hands, when you "let go" especially on an emotional level, it will help you detach from the situation so Spirit and the angelic realm can work through you to resolve a situation and help you to let go. The new can't come in unless you release the old. What you are letting go of will be replaced with something better that is in your highest good. Have faith and trust and know you are always being divinely guided and protected.
CARD#3- NEW BEGINNINGS- "Everything in life is constantly vibrating and moving, and therefore, continuously changing and evolving. Be aware that a new beginnings is on the horizon. Have courage and faith, because right now, life is trying to nudge you forward and move you in a new direction." Spirit is nudging you in a new direction, are you noticing? (Pay attention to your intuition, especially if it repeats itself). You may feel anxious, vulnerable and questioning whether or not you can do this- you can, believe in yourself. You may feel that you are being taken right out of your comfort zone, but remember, Spirit and your angelic team have your back, remember to call on them for assistance. This is a time to take that leap of faith. You are fully qualified and ready to embrace new beginnings that will bring blessings of love, abundance and prosperity in all forms.

Hello everyone, here are the results for your personal messages for Friday, March 4, 2016 using the Daily Guidance from Your Angels deck by Doreen Virtue. *NOTE- these messages are indicative of the energies coming up with the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces on March 8. Change is definitely in the air for this month, but changes that will be in our highest good and for everyone involved. I will post more about this on my blog later today and post it here on my page.*
CARD#1- CHANGE IN DIRECTION- The message at the bottom of the card: "The changes you're experiencing are Divinely directed by your newborn willingness to open your heart to love and our guidance. You are protected now and in the future, so follow your path to the happy outcomes you desire." This is a confirmation that the healthy positive changes you make in your life will lead you in a new direction that is in your highest good. For some of you, this indicates a physical move, for some it will be a new career endeavor. Their are many possibilities, so however this resonates with you is how it is meant for you. Also, this is a time of transition for you, call on Archangel Jeremiel (The Archangel who assists us with transitions and also with life reviews) to assist you during this time. You are being divinely guided and protected along the way and all will work out in Divine timing. Believe, and let go of fear and anxieties. Have faith and trust in Spirit and the angelic realm bringing new beginnings that will bring love and prosperity in all forms.
CARD#2-TIME TO GO- The message at the bottom of the card: "The sun sets and rises each day, and its' the same with the avenues in your life. See the beauty within each sunset in your life, and know that the sun will also rise again tomorrow. Endings are merely the start of a new beginning, and we are with you through each phase and cycle." *When this card comes up it has several different meanings, so go with the one resonates with you.* The first message I receive is that it's time for you to leave a toxic relationship (of any type), you have already known this inside your heart and this is a confirmation coming to you from the angels. Ask Archangel Michael and your spiritual team to assist you in this process. The second message I receive is that for some of you this indicates a move (local or long distance) and this physical move will usher in new blessings of abundance and prosperity in all forms. The last message I am receiving is that it is time work on any creative projects you have put off, your hard work and effort will pay off. Give any "hows" up to Spirit and take action steps you feel guided to take. "Trust" your intuition as it will guide you in making healthy positive changes. Call on your angels for guidance. Make your decisions that you feel are best for you and come from your heart, not your ego.
CARD#3-BLESSING IN DISGUISE- The message at the bottom of the card: "What appears to be a problem is actually part of your answered prayer. You'll understand the reasons behind your present situation as everything resolves. Trust in heaven's protection and infinite wisdom to answer your prayer in the best way." What I am receiving: If you have had a loss recently (for example a job or relationship) then know that this is a blessing in disguise. Whatever is falling away from your life has served it's purpose and will be replaced with something new (or someone new) and in your highest good. *For some of you I am receiving the message that a certain relationship (can be any kind) was becoming very toxic for you and needed to fall away.* You may not understand all the reasons now but have faith and trust that Spirit and the angelic realm are guiding and protecting you during this time. Take some time for yourself so you can process your emotions and allow healing to take place so you can embrace the new coming into your life.

Hello everyone, here are the results for your personal messages for Tuesday, March 1, 2016, using the Psychic Tarot for the Heart deck by John Holland. *Note- CARD#2 stood out for all of us.*
CARD#1- #4- OPEN UP- keywords: withdrawal, blocks, control, release. Past disappointments or sorrows have a way of closing our heart charka and block our flow to receiving love in all forms. Fear also creates energy blocks that hinder us from moving forward. (This can apply in any area of our life). Have you closed off your heart due to old emotional negative patterns or old emotional wounds? Its time to release any blocks or sorrows and allow healing. so you can be more open to receiving love in all forms. Take the lessons and the love and leave the rest behind. Work with Spirit and your angelic team, and consider reiki as an option. Also, release the need to control anyone or any situation; this can also create energy blocks as well. When you open yourself up to love in all forms, it brings in new beginnings, peace and healthy positive relationships. The number 4 in angel numbers mean: "The angels are with you. They send you the number 4 to reassure you that they’ve heard your prayers and are helping you."
CARD#2- #1- NEW VITALITY- keywords: revitalize, focus, enthusiasm, joy. The new energies coming in today and throughout the month of March will give us opportunities to revitalize our relationships with others and ourselves. This will also attract new relationships in all forms into your life. Focus on the love and light within yourself so you can see this in others. This raises our vibrations higher so we can see ourselves and others coming from love which will ushers in new harmony, joy and peace. This new vitality will ignite your passions as you embark on the next phase of your life path. Combine this new vitality with your passions and create from your heart. The number 1 in angel numbers mean: "Stay positive. Everything you’re thinking about right now is coming true, so be sure that you’re only thinking about what you desire. Give any fears to God and the angels."
CARD#3- #3-NURTURE- keywords: cherish, nourish, blossom, abundance, nature, creativity. *This is the Empress in the traditional Rider-Waite tarot deck.*. This is a reminder for you to nurture yourself, your relationships and your creative projects. Remember to nurture yourself on a soul level by connecting with Spirit and Mother Nature. When you take time to nurture yourself on all levels, it raises your vibration to send out love which in return you will receive back. Also, use your passions and creativity to assist you in creating the life you desire. The number 3 in angel numbers mean: "The ascended masters are helping you—usually this means an ascended master you feel close to-for example, Jesus, Quan Yin, a saint, or some other spiritual/religious figure."
