Love Rocks! Love Rules! Dame Rev Rio has been using Love to empower people in all areas of their lives for more than 25 years. More than a word or a feeling Love is a powerful energy, and one which is available to every one of us, all the time!
Welcome to yourself! Welcome to Love!

March 23rd-29th, 2015 – Weekly Angel Card Reading

Wow! How did we get to the last week of March? It seems like only yesterday I was in Colorado with my mom, and yet it seems like an eternity. Thank you so much for hanging in here with me and for the continued love and prayers. You are Amazing!
This week I am using the Magical Messages from the Fairies Oracle deck by Doreen Virtue for the reading. I felt like it would be good to acknowledge the Faeries as well as the Angels. In actuality they are really along the same line, with the Faeries being Nature Angels… In the reading we see to let go, that your desire is within reach, have patience, and embrace yourself as a spiritual teacher. Enjoy!
Angels and Love Rocks! Love Rules!

March 16th-22nd, 2015 – Weekly Angel Card Reading

Welcome to the third week of March and tomorrow is St. Paddy’s Day! For this Irish lassie, it is a mandatory holiday. Also I am finally recovering from last week’s oral surgery and still processing my mom being on the other side.
This week I have been guided to use the Archangels Power Tarot Deck by Doreen Virtue, and although I utilize my tarot cards in daily readings, mostly doing these videos I use the oracle cards. This reading we are looking at The Wheel (new beginnings), the 5 of Gabriel (about changes), The Star (the end of a difficult situation and living your dreams), and the 3 of Ariel (get creative!). Remember you are the bringer of your own destiny, so make it Awesome!
Love and Angels Rock! Love Rules!

My Mom, the Newest Angel in the Eternal


This has been quite a ride and it has taken me around the bend and back again. My mother, the newest Angel in the Eternal, is gone. Oh, trust me, I DO know she isn’t ‘dead’, I mean, I talk to ‘dead people’ all the time. However the woman I knew as my mother, the beautiful person, human, frail, flawed, and fabulous, who raised me, is most certainly – gone. This is the first time I have been able to write anything, to even begin to put two words together to express the depth of sorrow I feel at my mom being invisible.
You see, as a minister, I have sat with plenty of dying people. I have been to countless funerals, memorials, and celebration of life services. It’s not that I don’t know how to do this thing called death, what is so different this time is that it is my own mother. Now, those of you who have indeed lost either one or both parents completely understand this post, those of you who have still got your parents, or at least one left, hear this, when they are both gone, it IS different. No one, and I mean NO ONE can prepare you (nor could they prepare me) for the loss of the final parent. Regardless of the state of relationship between you and your parents, the fact remains that when they are both gone to the invisible, there is this certain emptiness which happens and cannot really be explained, only felt.
Yes, certainly there is grief, anger, sadness, despair, and all of the stages of it, however even deeper is this sense of missing that human being which brought me into this world in the first place. This is the place where I am at right now. It is brand new territory, not one that I particularly care for, and also a territory which makes me realize that in fact I am alone in this world.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I have plenty of friends, lots of support and tons of cousins, however being an only child there are no brothers or sisters to lean on, it’s me, oh, and God. Fortunately I DO have that! I am extremely grateful for my knowing, my spiritual practice, AND my ability to communicate with the Angels and the other side. The fact remains though that I am human and I miss holding my mother’s hand, I miss kissing her forehead and telling her I Love Her! These are the parts of being human that I miss sharing with my beloved mom. Did we argue? You bet! Did we disagree? Yep! And guess what? I miss that too!!
You see, I LOVE being human! Really! I adore the feelings, the touch of a beloved, the look in the eyes of a friend or family member, and the smile of People! This is also the part I miss about my mom. Yes she is eternal, yes she is getting her ‘Guide Wings’ (humans don’t really become Angels, however they DO become our guides sometimes), yes she is FREE from a body which was causing her more pain and agony than she ever deserved, AND I MISS her physical body! I Miss the woman who birthed my human self. I Miss holding the hand which comforted me more times than I can count. This is the part of death that sucks! This, for me, is the part that no one could have told me about. This is the part I could only experience.
So, when it comes time for you to say ‘farewell’ to your final parent, when your mom or dad becomes the newest Angel in the eternal, you will be able to say ‘Hey, Rev Rio told me this would happen, I guess I’m OK and it is normal for me to feel this way’.
The bottom line is that I am grateful my mother finally pain free, able to fly, dance, and swoop through the invisible on a thought. I am thankful she is the newest Angel in the Eternal, AND that she was an Earth Angel here, until the day she left.
I love you Mom! I look forward to hearing from you and to hearing about your New Adventures! In the meantime, I’m going to keep moving on, I’ll cry and miss you, and I’ll Always Love You!

March 9th-15th, 2015 – Weekly Angel Card Reading

Blessings and Love to you and Happy Birthday to my Mom in the Eternal! Today (March 9th) would have been my mother’s 87th birthday in the physical, however as you know on February 27th she made her transition into the eternal. So, I thought that this week it would be a good choice to use the Mother Mary Queen of Angels Oracle deck to honor the Sacred Mother of us all. In this reading we see love, integrity, devotion, and prayer. All of these qualities are always within each of us, however this particular week you are invited to cultivate them within you now.
Have a fantastic week and enjoy!
Love and Angels Rock! Love Rules!

March 2nd-8th, 2015 – Weekly Angel Card Reading

As many of you already know, my beautiful mother Genevieve made her transition on February 27, 2015 at 8:10 PM in Colorado Springs. She was peaceful, calm, and is now free and unfettered while beginning her new adventure on the other side. I told her before she died that it was good she has a daughter that’s a medium because she can talk to me anytime and I will actually hear her.
So, this week in honor of my Goddess Mother, I am using the Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards. These cards have always given me comfort when I felt down, as well as given me support and guidance. This week you will see that the future is bright, to review your past life, trust you have an infinite supply, and don’t back down.
Enjoy! Angels and Love Rock! Love Rules!

February 23rd-March 1st, 2015 – Weekly Angel Card Reading

This week is very emotional for me as I am on my way to be with my mother during her transition. I appreciate all of your love and support throughout this process and I am honored to have your energy in my life. In this week’s reading I am using the Indigo Oracle Cards which are usually specifically for those of us who are Indigo (and if you’re reading this that means YOU!). Regardless of whether or not you acknowledge your Indigo nature, this week’s reading will be of assistance to you.
In the reading you will be embracing your dreams, allowing yourself to shield yourself, reflect on yourself, and show appreciation, for yourself and others.
Thank you again for all your love! Enjoy the reading! Angels and Love Rocks! Love Rules!

February 16th-22nd, 2015 – Weekly Angel Card Reading

Well, it’s the third week of February and I still haven’t posted a Love Prayer. I suppose it is best to just let myself off the hook for this, especially since there are so many things going on in my personal life with my mom making her transition right now. I do appreciate your understanding and at this point I am simply grateful I have been able to get the weekly videos online.
That being said, this week I am using the Flower Therapy Deck by Doreen Virtue. I love this deck and the flowers energy with it. Often doing readings with this deck reminds me of the magnificent light that all of the flowers and plant kingdom brings to our lives. This week you are invited to decide, raise your vibration, magnify your intention, and simplify your life. Allow yourself to take this week to smell the flowers and be free!
As always, I will do the breakdown right below the video. Enjoy! Angels and Love Rocks! Love Rules!

February 9th-15th, 2015 – Weekly Angel Card Reading

This week is Valentine’s Week, with all the hoopla leading up to it. The main focus for this week is LOVE, and Magic! When you have magic in your life you can create anything your heart desires. In honor of this week of Love and Magic I am using the Magical Dolphins and Mermaids Oracle Deck by Doreen Virtue. This is one of my favorite decks (aren’t they ALL??) in that it really speaks to the magic and the mystery of love and life.
In the reading you will see how to let yourself receive, embrace the Divine Alchemy, practice self-forgiveness and have faith. Remember that these cards are guidance for the evolution of your own soul and spiritual self. They also help in your relationships with others.
Have a Fabulous Valentine’s Day and Week! Love and Angels Rocks! Love Rules!

February 2nd thru February 8th, 2015 – Weekly Angel Card Reading

Welcome to the Month of Love!! This month we celebrate Love in all its variations, intimate, familial, planetary, Universal. Regardless of the form it takes Love really is all there is. This Divine quality is the essence of who we are. So, for the beginning of the Love month I am using the Romance Deck this week, by Doreen Virtue. This week you will see how different your expectations are about the ‘One’ and who actually shows up, you will be invited to make the effort in your love life, a reconciliation is possible, and by next week you can consciously call in your soul mate (which will be explained further below and in the video).

Regardless of whether you are currently in relationship or not, the Romance Angels benefit your life by bringing you back to the romance of simply being alive.
Enjoy! Angels and Love Rocks! Love Rules!

January 26th thru February 1st, 2015 – Weekly Angel Card Reading

Welcome to the final week of January 2015! WOW!! I mean seriously! This month has flown by, at least for me anyway, and here we are on the verge of the Month of Love! In honor of this final week of January I am using the Archangels Oracle Card Deck by Doreen Virtue. This deck is one of my favorite due to the fact that each card has a specific Archangel to work with for the blessing it is giving.
In this week’s reading you will start prioritizing, know you are safe, have your Angel therapy, and realize your claircognizance. In each step along the path, you will have specific Archangels to work with you, as long as you ask them.
Enjoy the reading! Angels and Love Rocks! Love Rules!
