Are you open to answering the call?

The Universe is speaking to you and wants to show the world its beauty through you. Are you ready and willing to receive? Only you can answer that question. There is not a person, place or thing on this earth that can do it for you. Are you ready to take the leap? Honestly, what have you got to lose? The answer is nothing. You have nothing to lose but everything to gain. The Universe wants you to know that you are deserving of all the love and abundance that it has to offer. That you are the co-creator of your life. You are not asked to be perfect. In fact it is the total opposite. You will make mistakes. You will have successes. You will at times experience a plethora of emotions. Some of them emotions will be sadness, yet others will be joy and happiness. It is up to you to decide what joy, happiness, success and abundance is to you? What is it that you want? What is it that you value? Where do you want your life to go? These are the questions you have to ask yourself. No one can answer them for you. Only you really know. If you want change in your life you have to first choose it. Allow yourself to be open to the idea that the impossible is possible. Take a chance and believe in the magic that the Universe has to offer. If you can dream it, you can do it, you can be it. Do not sell yourself short any longer.

For far too long yourself and others like you have put the needs of others first. Allowing your own needs and desires to be suppressed . Losing your identity in the belief systems of those around you. Always giving your energy allowing others to be lifted up. There is absolutely nothing wrong with you taking your life back. Standing up for what you believe in. Setting strong boundaries and chasing your dreams. Yes, you may lose some people along the way but do not worry because you will never be alone. The people that are meant for you will find you.

Decide today that you are going to choose yourself and chase your dreams. Your past does not have to define you. Yes this may mean that people will leave your life. That does not mean they are gone forever. It may just mean right now. What is meant for your is always yours. Even if it is just for a moment it was still yours. No one can ever take that away. The only limiting thing in your life is the thoughts and beliefs that you hold inside. Consider your mind the prison and your thoughts are the warden. The Universe wants you to know that changing the way you view the world around you is not an easy process. However, it is without a doubt fulfilling in the end. Remember it is the mind that tells us no. The Universe always says YES!

You don’t need to know how you are going to get there. What the journey will look like. How things will come. You just need to believe that is already yours. Take the leap of faith. Do the things that you can in the moment. Sometimes those things will require you to take action and make some hard decisions. Other times you will do nothing but rest. Surprisingly, resting is actually doing something. Others will not understand. Remember it is not your job to make them understand. You are just supposed to go for it. It is your journey to navigate not theirs. Allow the Universe to manifest its miracles through you.

So I ask you. What do you desire? What brings you joy? Are you ready to receive?

What are you manifesting? A time to turn inward!

Let it be of the highest quality and assist those reading it in making mindful decisions. All those decisions have a positive impact in their life. My will, thy will, divine will.

What are you manifesting? A time to look inward!

Most people do not even realize what is happening around them is a reflection of what is going on in their mind. A few examples of how it may manifest are: a projection of a learned behavior onto another, addiction, or co-dependency… Two main questions I get asked when I do readings and live events are: ” Why am I attracting a particular type of situation?” “Will I ever find someone that really loves me”?

My response is normally the same? The answers are: The only way you will ever attract a different situation is when you start to approach things inside you differently. Yes, you can definitely find someone that will love you but not until you truly love yourself. If you are finding that your love life is producing relationships that are not full of love and respect ask yourself this important question. Do I love and respect myself? Can you really answer that question with a yes? Are you allowing yourself to entertain a relationship where respect and love are not given? If you answer no then you have to ask yourself “what is keeping from loving and respecting myself”?

When I am talking, coaching and giving guidance from spirit the message I often find being delivered is to pay attention to the dialog you have with yourself on a daily basis. How you talk and interact with yourself is what you are going to attract. When you start to change the interaction within you will begin to see that the situations you find yourself it begin to change also. You also tell the universe what you are willing and ready to accept by clearing out old actions and replacing them with new. Keep in mind this can be both good and bad. Really pay close attention to the why you are doing things. Intention is everything. The saying you get what you give is a real thing. Most people refer to it as karma.

There are points in our lives where we are asked to go inward and reflect. During these time of reflection you may begin to look at yourself and how your actions impacted a situation. Do not get lost and internalize guilt for times your actions may have inflicted pain on someone. Allow your guilt to propel you forward and motivate positive change in your behaviors. Internalizing it will only inhibit you from forward movement. When you hold on to guilt it keeps you reliving the past and you project it out only to relive it over and over.

You definitely must acknowledge it. When you reflecting on these moments pay attention to the role you played. Why did you play that role? Were you the victim? Were you the manipulator, instigator or reactor? Were you trying to gain something from the situation? What were you trying to accomplish during that time and how could you have approached the situation differently if it presented itself again in the future? Use it as an opportunity to learn a lesson so you are not asked to repeat the pattern again. There is freedom in that process.

I recently read a book that discussed how a person manifests things both good and bad into their life over and over again until they abandon an old way of thinking and adopt a new perspective. In the book Dancing with the Universe the author specifically discusses her fear of abandonment. While reading it I had my own epiphany.

Your fear of abandonment will manifest and lurk in ever corner of every intimate relationship until you abandon it!

Dianne Rosena Jones

I took what she said and interpreted it even further. The thought immediately came to my mind that if you can manifest your fear into relationship you can manifest your fear into every part of your life. Which means that what you fear will continue to show up in your life.

For this to change a person must do a couple things:

  • Identify the fear and the source
  • Address it
  • Release it
  • Reprogram the belief

Easier said than done I know. This requires a person to really do some soul searching. The only way to do that is to turn the attention inward. Turning inward is a very hard task. It requires one to be honest with themselves. Sometimes being honest with yourself is the hardest thing to do because it requires one to be vulnerable and open. Open to having to relive traumas and ideas that may have been carried for most of a lifetime or in some cases longer. To be honest one of the hardest concepts I have come to grips with is people form their identities based off the traumas they have lived. An example of this I have used in my lifetime is I am worthless because I do not live up to the belief and standards that I have set for myself or have allowed to be influenced by others. The fact is I that belief is far from the truth. It only becomes valid if I place value on it. You have to ask yourself hard questions. Why do you give it value? What is it really triggering? Is this something that I believe or is it a belief I can let go of? If you find you can not let go of it then you must go deeper. You must ask yourself what is prohibiting you from releasing it? It will continue to manifest in your life until you fully release it. That is the answer to the question why am I finding myself in the same situation over and over again.

What are you holding on to? Look at the patterns that are happening in your life you will find that they are a product of something you are holding on to. This can be both good and bad. If the pattern is something that creates positivity and allows you to continue to grow then it is something to keep and cultivate. If it is something that is keeping you from growth and forward movement it is time to turn inward for answers. Identify, accept, release and reprogram.

Dear Universe: I am only finding confusion

Dear Universe, Guardian Angels, Ancestors and Spirit Guides,

I set the intention for this blog provide guidance, healing and inspiration to those that read it. I ask that this message come from a place of truth and compassion. Let it be of the highest quality and assist those reading it in making mindful decisions. All those decisions have a positive impact in their life. My will, thy will, divine will. I know that through you all is possible. I come to you with a grateful and thankful heart.

In my search for answers I am only finding more confusion

The search for answers is only a distraction. It is keeping you from committing and completing your work.  How much time have you really wasted on a subject only to feel like it brought more questions than answers? Your need to question it is in fact giving you the answer that you need. It means that it is not for you.  If it is only causing you confusion it is meant for you.  You are not meant to fit into a box. You are unique. You are supposed to see things differently. Stop trying to fit yourself into something you are not. You are not going to find definite answers in a report or concept of another. Remember that reports and concepts are just general blueprints that are to help guide you as you move forward. They are also left to a lot of interpretation.   To get the true answers that you need there is only one way to do so. You must look inward. You must search your soul. ALL the answers you seek are inside of you and will be shown in divine timing. You are not meant to find out who you are in a report or concept of another. You are meant to discover that on your own. Reports are tools just like the mind. They allow you to understand the possible why something may potentially happen. That does not set it in stone. You can utilize the tools to overcome challenges you will face. You can use them to assist you as you turn inward with questions. Through self-discovery, mediation and creativity you will find all the answers you need. Take a deep breath, do not try to force yourself into understand something that you do not have the full picture of yet.

Things are not meant to always be black and white. You are looking for answers where there is supposed to be mystery. Knowing takes the joy out of your journey. There is so much more to this world that is still to be discovered.  Explore this world with childlike excitement. Allow yourself to see it with new eyes. Get in touch with your inner child and allow your creativity to flow out of you. This will bring knowledge and new inspiration to the surface. It is OK to be curious and want to know about everything. You have been trained to believe that knowledge is power. Knowledge will give you the ability to see things from different view points. In the end you will be able to identify what is for you and what is not. When you are unsure ask for a sign and it will be delivered. Trust and have faith that the universe will support you as you continue to allow your authentic self to be seen. As you continue to trust and align the universe will continue to show up.  Open your heart and allow it to lead you. As you learn your lessons and find new ideas share them with others. Teach them and assist them as they embark on their journey.

Right now you are not supposed to know everything. There are magical things happening around you. I ask you has the search kept you from seeing all the good that is right in front of you. Has it kept you from really discovering parts of you? It is not the job of another to tell you who or what you are supposed to be doing. Part of your path is for you to discover that yourself and really believe that the universe supports you. There is only one true way for self-discovery and that is to start asking yourself the hard questions. Stop procrastinating hoping that you will stumble upon an answer. Stop wasting your time trying to find validation in the words and concepts of others. Ask yourself: Why do you do the things you do. Is it because someone else told you that is how it should be? You have to do more, be more, or give more? Is what you are doing really making you happy and feeling fulfilled? What do you really value and what excites you?  Sure some guidance or reports may give you a stepping stone on where you can look, but in reality the true answers that you are looking for are inside you. You just need to dig deep to uncover them. Take a deep breath and be patient with yourself there is a lot to dig through.

Dear Universe: Change is hard, thanks for the little wins

Dear Universe, Guardian Angels, Ancestors and Spirit Guides,

I set the intention for this blog provide guidance, healing and inspiration to those that read it. I ask that this message come from a place of truth and compassion. Let it be of the highest quality and assist those reading it in making mindful decisions. All those decisions have a positive impact in their life. My will, thy will, divine will. I know that through you all is possible. I come to you with a grateful and thankful heart.

Change is hard! Making decisions are hard. Thank you for the little wins

Every time you feel a little lost or begin to feel like you lost your way does everything suddenly seem to align? Can you see the light through darkness? What I mean by darkness is the darkness of the mind. The old thought patterns that somehow begin to find their way to the surface. You know the thoughts that keep you in a place of fear. The ones that want you to resist change that is happening. Better yet the thoughts that keep you from seeing all the good that is around you. I am talking about the thoughts that want to suck you back into thinking that you are not worthy, things will not get better, or you are not good enough.

I am here to tell you that you are good enough. I know you may not be able to see it right now but you must stop resisting change. You must stop trying to control the outcomes. Resisting will only bring more obstacles.  It is time for you to believe and trust that the changes are happening for your highest good. Speak the positivity into your life. The more you do it the easier it gets.

 There will constantly be times when moments of doubt will surface. Continue to practice replacing those doubts with thoughts that serve you. Believing that you have all the tools you need to move forward in such a way that aligns for outcomes that are favorable for all. Soon you will see that those moments of doubt will not come as often. I know that there have been times where those moments would last what felt like lifetimes. The key is to be consistent and persistent. Remember, you are a soul having a human experience. Part of that human experience is feeling all emotions to include doubt. In those times feel it, identify the trigger and release it. Use that energy in a positive way. Allow yourself to make adjustments and see what you can do in the now to assist with whatever you are faced with. Sometimes the thing you can do is to detach from the outcome. Releasing the worry. Worry is a wasted emotion that takes your energy pulling you away from opportunities that are being presented to you now.

Be grateful for the little wins. The little wins bring hope. Little wins light your path. They provide clarification that the work you are doing is not in vain. I know it is easier said than done.  Embrace the changes you are faced with.

Everything is constantly changing. Nothing stays the same. People change, places change, time changes, values and beliefs change. If one thing stays the same it is that change is constant. Without change there would be no experience or growth. I understand that. That does not make it any easier. Change is hard. Especially when it seems to hit you all at one time.

How do you embrace that change when it seem to be one event after another? Here are a few ways that you can embrace change:

  • Go with the flow
  • Stay true to your faith
  • Trust that things are happening for your highest good
  • Believe that things are happening for you not to you
  • Find the good in the situation
  • It’s all perspective
  • Find a way to get excited about the unknown
  • Know that through change there is new beginnings
  • Put good energy into things you find joy in
  • Acceptance (accept that the change is happening)
  • Consider it a new adventure in the story of your life

The list goes on and on.  Change is clearing out things that are keeping energy from evolving. Let’s get rolling with the punches. Let’s start making decisions, taking the leap into the unknown and allow the universe to lead the way. Knowing that ultimately we only have control over how we react to the changes that are happening. Throwing all caution to the wind and welcome roller coaster of life, knowing that there will be good in every day allowing us to open our eyes to those moments.  

Dear Universe: The best investment

Dear Universe, Guardian Angels, Ancestors and Spirit Guides,

I set the intention for this blog provide guidance, healing and inspiration to those that read it. I ask that this message come from a place of truth and compassion. Let it be of the highest quality and assist those reading it in making mindful decisions. All those decisions have a positive impact in their life. My will, thy will, divine will. I know that through you all is possible. I come to you with a grateful and thankful heart.

I want to make an investment that will serve my highest good. What do I need to do?

Dear soul,

The number one investment that you can ever make when it comes to your highest good is to invest in yourself at the present moment. Yes there will be times that you need to glance into the future or look to the past. However, in this very moment that most important investment is to invest into yourself and the feeding your soul. This investment is going to have the upmost impact on your future.

Cultivating your soul will lead you to remember what you value the most. It will reopen a flood gates of memories leading you back to your purpose in this life time.  The purpose of finding love. (Love of yourself, love of others, love for life) Finding love in being. Put positive energy into yourself and your passion. As you do so you will discover new things about you, your passions, people and the world around you.

It is now time to let your heart lead you. Your heart is leading you where you need to go. The need to control and follow logic is what you have been conditioned to do in the past. You are not meant to be the past version of you. Trust your heart. Trust your intuition. The brain has a way of wanting to make the simplest answers difficult. The brain is a tool that in the past you have allow to control and make sense of things to give them meaning or purpose. It doesn’t have to be so hard. The answer that you are looking for is so simple. Love! Love is the answer. Invest in loving yourself. Invest in the things that bring love in your life. Invest in the things that bring the joy back to your journey. By doing so you will continue to see that even when faced with difficult times you will find they will pass quicker.

Everyday set good intentions. Choose to live from a place of gratitude and love. This is to include the things that you do not enjoy. This things you do not find joy in are teaching great lessons that are going to assist you as you encounter others on their journey. When you feel like you cannot handle some things do not be afraid to ask for help. Remember you are a soul having a human experience. Part of that human experience will require the help of others. It does not make you any less than.

For now just slow down. Take a deep breath. Allow the seeds that you have already planted to begin to sprout. Remember slow and steady progression is the best kind of progression. Do not rush it.

Over all do not forget invest in you. You are the best investment you will ever make.

Dear Universe: Why am I all over the place? Am I blocked? If so what is blocking me?

I set the intention that this blog provide guidance, healing and inspiration to those that read it. I ask that it assist them in making mindful decisions that may impact their life path. My will, Thy will, Divine will. Thank you for all you do. I know that through you all is possible.

Dear Universe, Guardian Angels, Ancestors and Spirit Guides,

I come to you for guidance. I ask that you assist me in providing guidance for myself and the people that read this. I ask that it be a message of the highest quality and assist them as they make decisions on their life journey.

Why am I all over the place?Am I blocked? If so what is blocking me?

Oh dear soul. You are all over the place because right now you are in a time of self-discovery. Patience has never been your strong suit when it comes to results.  It is one of the lessons you are learning right now.  You ultimately know that. We hear your prayers and thoughts. We know you want results now. We ask you to explore what emotions you are feeling. Why they are coming up? What is triggering them? Is it a person, place or thing? Pay attention to how you are reacting. That is the only thing you can control. Do not waste your time with worry for how another is acting or lashing out. That is their responsibility not yours. Grasping and holding on to the past will only make the process more painful.

Transformations are not easy. Please keep in mind it was the path you decided on. You always have selected the hardest paths. Everything you are going through is for a purpose far greater than you understand at the moment.  All that you need to know will be revealed soon enough.  Have you taken a second to think maybe you are being asked to take a breath and pause? Even though you feel like there is no forward movement that is not true. You and a lot of other people like you have been taught they have to fight and claw their way to where they want to go.

In this moment we implore you to put that hard worker/positive energy that you have into yourself instead of giving to others. It is not a time to sell yourself short. It is a time of great change for you. It is not meant for you to know all the time. You have to release the fear of the unknown and find excitement in the mystery.  Everyone goes through times where they are unclear and confused of the why associated with the changes that are happening around them. Please do not give up. Just stay true to your faith and trust the process. Like any process you have to go through every step for it to be a successful process. Do not try to rush the finish product. If you must reflect and see progress go back read your journal. Take the time to return to your breath and find guidance through your mediation.

Why do you feel like something is blocking you? When it comes to the Universe, your guardian angels, ancestors and spirit guides we are always supporting you and ready to assist for your highest good. You are not being blocked we would never want that for you. In fact the only limitation that you have are the limitations you put on yourself. Once you really accept and realize you and your beliefs are the only thing holding you back you will find freedom.

You must also find a way to allow things to fall away from you. If a place or a person does not feel right to you take it as a sign from us that it is not meant for you at the moment or perhaps any longer.  Do not be afraid to separate yourself from things that are not lifting you up or supporting the changes that you are making. Your job is not to make others understand why you are making the decisions that you are making. Others may not understand and you may not even know how to explain it either. Trust that there is a divine reason for it all. Trust that even if times are hard at the moment and you feel a disconnect with who you are or even who you are becoming there is reason for it. If you could see the reason for it the hard work and lessons would be skipped over.

When you feel like you are disconnected we ask you to come back home. Come back to your breath. Your breath is the key. It brings calm and helps you center. It brings clarity. We are always with you. Surrender to the process. When you need a sign that you are on the right path ask for a specific sign from us. Be very specific. We will deliver. Now, in this moment we want you to think of the time that you felt the most love/joy/happiness in your life. What memory do you have? Take that feeling and internalize it. Come back to it whenever you need to. Use it to propel you through the times like now. Never forget you are love, you are worthy, you are strong, you are all things you tell yourself and you must continue to believe the impossible is possible. Ultimately, you are all things that you see in others. For that reason you must love and accept yourself unconditionally.  

Dear Universe, Am I making it all up?

Dear Universe, Guardian Angels, Ancestors and Spirit Guides,

I come to you for guidance. I ask that you assist me in providing guidance for myself and the people that read this. I ask that it be a message of the highest quality and assist them as they make decisions on their life journey.

How do I stand up for what I believe and feel is true? How do I know I am not making it all up?

Dear soul, the healing process is a continuous thing. Even the most positive people have days where thoughts can lead them astray. Know that it is very important to be mindful with where you allow your thoughts to take you. Your thoughts will quickly manifest into the environment around you. It is imperative that you remember that your mind is a tool. You are not your mind. Over time using the mind as a tool will become easier.  Do not lose hope. Know that you are exactly where you need to be right now. You are learning and mastering the lessons that you came to this earth to learn. Through learning your lessons you will find that you will lead others to learn their lessons too. You must learn to crawl, walk then run. Right now you are growing. Take a moment and see how things are starting to sprout around you. Do not get lost in the big picture.

Know that your intuition and higher self is leading you exactly where you need to be. Your angels want you to stay present. Pay attention to the now. You need to be an observer. Watch people and observe their energy. It will tell you everything you need to know . Look at their eyes let them connect to you. There is power in that connection. Allow them to see your light. That is how you stand up for what you believe in. Letting your light shine will get you further than you can ever imagine. Just be you! The true authentic you! That soul is beautiful.

Do not be afraid to love. Your heart and love is powerful. You were meant to love with all your heart. It is your strength. It does not make you weak. Do not hold back any longer.  You have the strength to love people on levels they have never felt before. You have the ability to love yourself at a level that you have never felt before. Give yourself the love that you give other people. It will allow your light to shine even brighter. Do not feel guilty or shameful when you have to do things for yourself. If you do not care for yourself. Caring for others will become difficult. It will cause you to become burnt out. Remember leading, healing and caring for others is what you are meant to do. Do not lose the joy in it.  Burnout will decrease the joy. It is necessary to take the time outs.

Continue to set our intentions out of a place of love. The intention will never lead you astray. Also remember what is yours will always find you. Keep your faith. Stand firm in your faith. Remember faith is learned one step at a time. There are many things that you do not see but you will. Some of these things you will face will be difficult. You have the strength to do all you need to do. When you seek answers return to the breath. The breath is life. Through the stillness of meditation you will find all the answers you need will be presented to you.

You are healing others. Remember that there are some that only see the bad broken parts of the world. You will help them see that there is good that is worth saving. All of it starts by nourishing your internal world. You have a deep knowing and there will be many confirmations that will and have been sent your way. Do not waste your time worrying if you are making it up. Remember that you just have to have faith in where you are being lead. There is a reason and purpose for it all. You will see your part soon enough. Trust in divine timing. Right now focus on keeping yourself in the higher vibrations as much as possible. Continue to work on the things that you can and surrender control of the things you can’t to your spiritual team and the universe.

Forgive yourself when you start to doubt.  Forgive yourself when you feel like you are falling short. You are human just like everyone else on this planet. You are not expected to be perfect. You have been working hard. It does not go unnoticed. Release doubt. Do not hold on to your doubt any longer.

Be grateful for the relationships you have built. Be grateful for the relationships that are falling away. Everyone you interact with is an opportunity to learn and grow for not only them but for you.  Believe that you are everything you dream to be and then some. You are strong. You are loved. You are confident. You are supported! Just breath and trust that the universe has your back always.

Control not the answer

One of the hardest lessons I have had to learn is to release the need to control the journey. The knowing of where my path ends but not knowing the who, what, when, where or how I am going to get there. I know I am not alone in this. In the past I would envision things I want to happen or set expectations on how it is supposed to happen. Only to find I had set myself up for disappointment and missed opportunities. The more I would try to control one of the 5 w’s the more difficult the process would become. It would be the equivalent of herding cats. Nothing goes as planned and more chaos is created. As I type this I hear you cannot control the Universe. It is so true.

Sometimes we can get so focused on where we want to go that we lose where we are now. Where we are now is the most important place to be. This is where we are building foundations, planting our seeds and learning the lessons we came here to learn. This has to happen so when we get to the final destination we can be in a place to receive it fully. Trying to control the path is in a sense cheating yourself. When you try to control it you are telling the Universe that your way is the best way. Meaning that where you are right now is exactly where you want to stay. The Universe doesn’t consider stagnancy an option. You really only have two options. Either you grow or you regress. Which one is it going to be?

If you chose to grow you cant expect it to happen overnight. My advice to you would be to release all expectation on how you think things will happen. Definitely do not put a time frame on it. Growing takes time. Just like if you were to plant a garden there is work that must be done before you see the harvest. You have to till the soil, plant the seeds, water, weed and feed. The same applies for your soul growth. It is not like one day you wake up and you do not have to deal with your daily life. In fact it is quite the opposite. Your daily life is your school for your soul growth. The decisions you make daily in your life is leading you towards the reason you were brought to this wonderful planet. If you chose to not grow and surrender you will find that the outcome is never easy. Remember that everything is energy and energy is always changing. The universe is going to continue to put things in your path that will require you to make decisions. How you chose to interpret them will be totally up to you. Free will is a tricky thing. Everyone has a breaking point. What I mean is that eventually everyone has a moment that brings them to the realization that they have no control over the things around them. The only thing they can ever control is how to they react to the things that are being sent their way.

Some days are harder than others. Some decisions you will make will impact your life and the lives of others. Everything will not always be easy. Walking a spiritual path or even being a spiritual being is hard. It allows you to see things others cannot. You feel the emotion and energy of others at times. Sometimes you may not even know if the emotions you are experiencing are your emotions or the emotions of others. Do not allow times like this overwhelm you or cause you to throw in the towel. When you are feeling overwhelmed or it is too hard. Remember you do not have to do it alone. The answer is definitely not to try to control it. The answer is to surrender. Surrender you desire out to the universe, come back to self through meditation and listen for guidance. Once you surrender you will begin to see the signs that you are in alignment. This can be through the words of people you are interacting with. It can be through repetitive numbers often referred to as angel numbers. It could be through the lyrics of music or even pictures. You just have to come back to self, release control and surrender to the will of the universe.

Feel Your Energy

Have you ever just sat and looked at the environment around you? What do you see? Well if you ask 100 different people I am confident you would get 100 different answers. Some would simply look around and give you descriptions of the objects they are surrounded by. Others would notice the people that they are directly interacting with. There would be others that would describe the things they are hearing and some the things they are smelling. If you were to ask me what I see in the environment around me. There is no telling what answer you will get on any given day. In my daily life I see things differently all the time.

I have the ability to see energy. Feel energy and manipulate energy. Yes, you read that correctly. It is something I can do. Believe it or not it is something you can do too. Don’t laugh! I know you may be skeptical but it is real. Energy is everything! Energy is around you, in you, used by you and put out by you. You are energy. Yes, you read that correctly too. Would you like to me to teach you how to connect with your own energy? Connecting to your own energy is key to understanding the energy around you. Once you can sit and really know what your energy feels like it allows feeling and seeing energy in your environment much easier.

It all starts with your breath. Now you will want to do this in a place where you are not going to be easily disturbed. Also it is important to release any expectation you have about what may happen. Expectations can hinder the process. You really want to be able to focus and pay attention to any changes that are happening in the body and around the body. Pay attention to any sensation (hearing, seeing, smelling, tasting, touch/feel). Do not be discouraged if the first time you do this you see or feel nothing. It is all about persistency and consistency. Every person is different and it happens for them in different ways. If this doesn’t work of you it is OK. Try another technique.

Step 1: Find a quiet place where you wont be disturbed and just sit. Set the intention that this be done out of a place of love for yourself and for the energy around you. State out loud that you release any energy that is not yours that does not serve you on both the physical and non-physical level. That nothing but love enter and love remain. Intention is important.

Step 2: Start to focus on your breath. Take a deep breath in hold it for 2 seconds and let it out. Continue to focus on the breath. Allow it to become a smooth & rhythmic in and out focusing on the rise and fall of your breathing point. As you focus on the breath you might begin to feel a change in the environment around you. Some might feel a tingling around the head/neck. Just pay attention to what you are feeling. (This can be done with your eyes open or closed).

Step 3: The next thing you are going to do is while still breathing place all your focus on your feet. Sending all your energy to your feet. Continuing to breath. Deep breath in (hold for 2 seconds and deep breath out). Focus all your energy on your feet.

Step 4: Now, I want you to imagine that there is a glowing swirling white light of energy coming up from the earth into your feet. The energy is of the purest form straight from the earth. Feel the energy moving from the earth into your feet. Just feel the energy. Next, I want you to allow the energy to move up the legs, over the knees, through the thighs, over the hips, through the abdomen, into the chest, through the heart, over the shoulders, through the neck, up into the head and shooting up straight into the universe as far as you can imagine.

Step 5: You are now a direct line from the universe to mother earth. Feel the energy flowing through you freely. Now it is time to continue to make some mental notes. What are you feeling? What does your energy feel like? Did you feel any change in the environment around you? Do you see colors? Do you see images? Do you smell or hear anything? The experience is different for everyone. When you feel ready focus back on the breath. Make sure to thank the universe for the experience. Start to wiggle your toes, fingers and other parts of the body. If you closed your eyes it is time to open them. If you decided to keep your eyes open really look at the environment around you. Does it seem the same?

Step 6: Take a moment for yourself and just sit. Make sure you back in your surroundings and ready before you go and jump up and run off to the next thing. It is not uncommon to feel a little disoriented. Never do this when you really need to focus. (like driving, operating machinery or anything that really requires 100% of your attention).

Like I mentioned this will experience is different for everyone. Some times I even do this while am on a walk. I will focus on my breathing and allow myself to experience the energy as I go. As I began to do this more and more I was able to see the energy more clearly. I began to see that everything is energy. Everything has its own energy and you can see it. You just have to be open. Being open all starts with understanding your energy. Once you start to understand that you will really begin to see the world in a whole new way.

Whole-Being work is hard! Just roll with it!

If I was to be honest, everything in my life is not sunshine in rainbows. Nobody has a life where they are happy all the time. Just like everyone else there are things that I don’t want to deal with. Come on who really wants to look at the parts of themselves that some would consider “toxic”? I certainly didn’t and still don’t like doing it. I am here to tell you that you are not alone.  We all go through it.  Do not be afraid to seek guidance on how to go through the process. Shoot just yesterday I had to reach out for clarity, direction and guidance. Healing, growing and change is a continuous process. Energy is always moving and changing. We are energy which means we are constantly changing too. That means who you were yesterday you are not today. There is only who you are today. Don’t get lost in the idea of being stuck, feeling unworthy or whatever self-imposed belief you have bestowed upon yourself.

We all have parts of ourselves that need healing. Trust the process. You have to feel your way through it. To get to it! Don’t get lost in the thoughts. Feel them, identify the emotion, accept it and then release it.  There are things about myself that I don’t want anyone to see. Yes, I can be a mean person. There are people that would say I was mean and they have every right to say that. I probably was mean to them and probably did something to them that didn’t align with their belief or values.

Overall I try my very best to treat people well. I never set an intention that I am going to hurt. That doesn’t mean it won’t happen. I am human like everyone else. Sometime I can be hot headed and let my mouth run away with me. One thing that my awakening has taught me is that I have to accept myself for it. So I do. I forgive myself when I stick my foot in my mouth. Then I look at the why behind it. Why did I get hot headed? What was being triggered at the moment?  What part did I play in the situation? I mean real part. Not my side of the story part. When was the first time I felt that emotion. I identify it and I let it go. I release the guilt, judgement and self-imposed attachment to it and release it up. I release it to the universe. I ask for healing. I ask for clarity. That doesn’t mean that I am never triggered again. It means that I have identified the why and now I can accept the part I played.

Whole being work is not easy. I say whole being work because I think it important to work on the whole self. The whole self because the shadow side of you never goes away. You just learn to accept yourself for it. Your shadow side will always be apart of you. It is not like you can detach it and throw it away. So accept it. Love the shadow part of you like you would the light part. Remember the light needs the dark just like the dark needs the light. There is beauty in both. Accept the parts of you that you look upon or have been programmed to believe are unfavorable.

The real question you need to ask yourself is “who gets to say it is unfavorable”? You or someone else? Who are you giving that power to? Let me tell you I have given my power away too many times! No more! I take my power back. I have cared what others have thought about me. I have dimmed and pushed my needs and desires off for way too long.  I have kept quite at times when I wanted to scream No at the top of my lungs. I have allowed myself to be hid in the shadows and for what. The happiness of others. The worry that because I have a different view or might be a little eccentric compared to them they will judge me.  You know what that is fine. Let them judge. They have every right to think or act how they want it’s their life. Just like it is my life.

Have you spoke up and actually spoke what you want? Or have you been saying everything you don’t want? Now that I look back at I see that when I would speak about what I don’t want the more what I didn’t want would happen. Words are powerful. No more! Now I catch myself. When I start to say I don’t want I quickly rephrase to what I do want. Remember people only hear part of what you tell them so make sure that you are telling them what you want.

I said this earlier and I will say this again. Whole-being work is hard! It is hard to accept yourself for the good, bad and ugly. Some days will be easier compared to others. That is OK. There is nothing wrong with having a not so great day. Those days pass. Just like the good days pass. That is life. That is the amazing thing about life. It is like a roller coaster of ups and downs that fill you with a plethora of emotions/feelings.  So roll with it. Learn to go with the flow. Teach yourself to accept yourself for who you are. Be the person that eats lunch and hears an amazing song on the radio and dances in the seat while you eat. Why not! Enjoy it. Who cares who is watching? If you feel it do it. Laugh at yourself when someone else laughs at you. It’s good to laugh at yourself. Laughter is good for the soul!  I encourage you to laugh at me. Maybe you just being you making them laugh raised their vibration and didn’t even know it.  Accept yourself as you are. Doing so will also allow you to accept others for who they are. Everyone wants acceptance! There is no better place to start. So look yourself in the mirror and tell that person looking a back that you love them. You forgive them for all the things you have done to yourself and other. Then tell them you accept them. You accept them for who they are. The person they are in this moment.
