Tapping into your Guardian Angels and Spirit Guide(s) for Affirmations & Signs

My Guardian Angel’s name is Thomas.   My Spirit Guides are Ethos and Addie. I’ll explain later how I happen to know this.

Raised in a Catholic household, we were always aware that we had a Guardian Angel looking out for us, 24/7.  I imagined they looked a great deal like the statues of angels in our church, St. Rose.  I didn’t think of my angels daily.  Not very often really.  Not until after I moved from Ohio to Atlanta in 1988. I was really on my own for the first time in my life, in a big metropolitan area, 600 miles from home.  I needed reinforcements!  My mom would send me a Guardian Angel pin periodically.  This was her thing.  I kept one in my car.  Since Atlanta is a driving city and I would usually spend over an hour in my car for my daily commute, this seemed like the most logical place for protection.   The other angel pins are in my home.  Naturally.

My parents started driving down to visit, probably a year after I moved to Atlanta. I was worried about their 12 hour or longer drive, so I would say a prayer for my Guardian Angel to watch over them.  Little did I know, my sister, Janine, was doing the exact same thing.  We realized we were both doing this a few years later.  It is a part of my routine, when I travel or when a family member or loved one is traveling, to ask my Guardian Angel to watch over us all.  It gives me piece of mind.  Which is a good thing in this crazy world we live in.

My Guardian Angels and Spirit Guides communicate with me in a variety of ways.

After I bought my first home in 2002, I started hearing my name called. Usually in the early twilight of dawn.  It woke me out of a deep sleep, it was that loud.  And clear.  Thinking about it later, I couldn’t tell if the voice was male or female.  Androgynous?  That made me lean towards the angelic.  Since I lived in the South, I heard from a few, very southern people, do not answer the voice!  It is Beelzebub.  Or the Devil to you and me.  Well, that scared me and made me question myself.  My mom’s theory was that someone was thinking about me or praying for me and that’s what I heard.  But at 5:00 a.m.?  It comforted me to think it was my Guardian Angel, letting me know they were there.  Better than the Devil coming after me!

I hear doorbells too.  I have heard them for years. But no one is ever at the door.  Just heard one this past Sunday, as I was waking up from a nap on the couch.  My boyfriend Jeff was in the house and he didn’t hear a thing.  I know that I am clairaudient.  I am trying to development this gift further.  Stay tuned for that!

Do you ever see repetitive numbers?  I see ‘111’ all the time.  On clocks.  Treadmill distances.  My birthdate.  The exit to my home in Atlanta was #11.  Jeff and I text back and forth now when it is 11:11 or 1:11. I don’t stare at the clock until that particular time pops up.  I just happen to glance at my watch, or my computer, and it is there.  It doesn’t happen every day, but several days a week, at least.  You can Google the meaning of repetitive numbers – 111 means that your thoughts are manifesting instantly, so when I see this number I think of something I need in my life and stay positive.  Repetitive numbers are your angels communicating a message.  A good book to find meanings of numbers is by Doreen Virtue, ‘Angel Numbers 101’. When I pray for guidance or ask for help in finding a solution, I usually start seeing 111 everywhere.  It means I am on the right track, so this is a very positive experience for me.

Back to Thomas, my Guardian Angel, and Ethos and Addie, my Spirit Guides.  Addie will be introduced in a later chapter.

I was first introduced to Thomas and Ethos during a Past Life Regression, back in April of 2010.  I know what you are thinking – what in the world is a Past Life Regression.  I will get into the details in the next chapter, but for edification, you are put into a meditative state or hypnosis and walked through steps to reach a past life.  You experience your death in each of the lives and what happens to your soul.  It is f-r-e-a-k-y if you have never experienced it.  Amazing.  I always wondered about a few phobias and things that bothered me in this life, things that have carried over from previous lives. But I digress.  During one of my past life experiences, I met Ethos, my Spirit Guide.  Let me just tell you that I was so emotional when I met him that I started sobbing uncontrollably.  I was so happy to see him again! (This is all on tape by the way.)  He looks like Socrates.  His task is to guide me along on the path I have chosen in this life.  I am constantly asking Ethos if I am on the right path, or to protect me from harm. Spirit Guides are typically not Angels.  They were alive on earth at one point but chose to be a guide instead of incarnating again.  I asked Ethos when I met him who my Guardian Angel was, and he said ‘Thomas’.  I didn’t get a chance to meet Thomas then, but I see him all around me.  By his signs.

My Spiritual Journey

I have always been intrigued by Spirituality and the Mystical. I’m not sure when it all started, but it might have been when I was very young – maybe 5 years old – when I heard murmurs in my room in the hours of darkness. More specifically, they were gathered above the door to my bedroom and started after the lights were out and everyone was settled for the night.  The murmuring disoriented me and disturbed me.  I couldn’t hear any specific words, just whispers. I just wanted it to stop.  I couldn’t keep calling my mother into the room to sit with me until I fell asleep – she was exhausted at the end of her day, a busy mother of six kids.  Somehow, not sure exactly what I did to change things, it stopped after a while.  Maybe my Guardian Angel had pity on a scared little girl.

I managed to block that disturbing time out of my life for decades.

Growing up Catholic, but with a mother and grandmother who were in tune with their Celtic roots, we heard about ghosts of dead relatives visiting during stressful times and we were taught to pray to our Guardian Angels to protect us while we slept. This early exposure, and the ensuing years of nurturing, has culminated in the Spiritual Evolution of my soul.

What follows is my journey there…


Is life stressing you out?  Do you feel that lately your energy level is low?  A Reiki session may help you!

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is one of the most holistic systems for balancing and harmonizing your body, mind, emotions and spirit.  It encourages deep relaxation and the release of stress and tension and promotes healing.   A Reiki Practitioner can administer Reiki in a variety of ways, by certain hand positions on the body, or remotely.  The client remains fully clothed during a treatment.  Reiki opens blocked chakras and clears energy, leaving you feeling at peace and relaxed.  Don’t live in Wilmington NC?  No worries – a remote Reiki session is just as effective.  If interested in a remote session, please email me at karrie@karriew.com for more information.

Please note that  Reiki Practitioners do not diagnose or perform medical treatments.  A Reiki session will help the body reach a level of relaxation to bring the system back in balance.  Multiple sessions may be necessary.  A positive attitude is key!

If you feel you can benefit from a Reiki session, please email me to set up an appointment at karrie@karriew.com

I am a certified Usui/Holy Fire Reiki II Practitioner.



Tarot Readings

Have you ever had a Tarot reading before?  If so, were you amazed by the revelations?  If you’ve never had a reading, do you ever wish for a means of predicting events or receiving guidance for a particular problem?   Tarot card readings are uncannily accurate about current or future events.  I’ve been a Tarot reader since 2009, and I’m constantly amazed by readings, as are my clients.  Sometimes they resonate immediately,  other times I get a call or email several weeks or even months later and everything I saw in the cards was true.  The key to a successful reading is to keep an open mind.

Individual, in person, Tarot readings are $40 for a 30 minute session or $80 for a  60 minute session (Pendulum divination included in 60 minute session).   I can also offer a remote, personal Tarot reading for $50.

To schedule a reading, please email karrie@karriew.com

Readings are also fun for casual parties, business events or just a gathering of your friends.   If interested in having readings for your guests, please email me at karrie@karriew.com and provide me with the event particulars (date/time/number of guests) and we can discuss rates.

I look forward to offering an insight into your future!









2018 Azalea Festival

Wilmington, North Carolina  -Home of the Azalea Festival!  Every Welcome to Wilmington sign has this tagline.

Since we moved to #ILM from #ATL in November 2017, we have been eagerly anticipating the Spring to see what the hype is all about.  The Azalea Festival is the largest festival of its kind in North Carolina.  Founded in 1948, more than 200,000 are expected to attend the four-day festival, April 11-15, 2018, featuring a parade, street fair, home and garden tours and much more, including…the crowning of the annual Azalea Queen.  I checked out the list of past Azalea Queens and was surprised to find Kelly Ripa, and 70’s star Joan Van Ark, to name a few!

Wilmington is a beautiful city , surrounded by the Cape Fear River, Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic.  I enthusiastically look forward to #ILM in the Spring, just a few short weeks away.   I think I missed the deadline to Volunteer for this festival, but sign me up in the Fall for 2019!

GenX – not to be confused with Generation X!

Jeff and I started hearing ‘GenX’ mentioned in the news after we moved to Wilmington in November 2017, but we didn’t pay too much attention to it.   After all, what is new to report on Generation X?   After about two weeks, we started to focus on the news stories.   City Council meetings were all discussing this mysterious GenX.  Apparently the Cape Fear River is being contaminated by a chemical compound called GenX,  and it is polluting our water source.  What what?!   That got our attention.  Locals were telling us to drink tap water at our own peril.  Get a reverse osmosis filtration system, that is the only thing that will work on this chemical.    What the heck have we walked into here?   Apparently there are several chemical companies ‘up the river’ in Fayetteville that were/are dumping into the Cape Fear River.   As of November 2017, Chemours  is no longer dumping waste into the river, but there are still trace amounts of GenX showing up in the water.  There are two other companies in Fayetteville who continue to dump chemical waste into the Cape Fear River.  Needless to say, we use bottled water for drinking, brushing teeth and for our pets.  We don’t know the long range effects of drinking the water, time will tell.

What happens now and how bad is it really? Check out this article by StarNews Online:

ATL to ILM- Lifestyle Adjustments!

My significant other,  Jeff,  and I recently moved to Wilmington, North Carolina from Atlanta, Georgia.   We love living on the coast with easy access to the beach!

September 2017 we decided to put our house on the market in Alpharetta, Georgia, a northern suburb of Atlanta, and move to the East coast.  November 28, 2017, we arrived and haven’t looked back!

This Blog will share our adventures as we check out the food scene (did I mention Jeff is a Chef?), explore the beaches and figure out what we want to do with our lives…
