12-12-12: Time for Action

light 2

I am hearing from many about the feelings of chaos, fear, unexpected pains or aches, shifts in businesses and personal lives and heightened senses.  With the intensity of the solar flares and the abundant fullness of the moon along with the lunar eclipse we also have 12-12-12  coming next week.  The energy within us as well as the energy of the Earth and the Universe at large seems to be fluctuating – so intense at times it seems to affect our lives in many ways.

Fortunately, there are actions we can take to determine how to direct the flow of this energy. Coming into alignment with our Higher Self may be one of the actions which brings peace to the physical, mental and spiritual changes we are adjusting to in a period of time known as The Shift.  The practices of centering, grounding and protecting may be old clichés however, they are actions which help us to focus on what is happening, understanding our bodys signals and finding out how to bring relief.

Through all these feelings and chaotic experiences there are lessons for us which means growth. This is also a wonderful time for practicing and manifesting your desires. With the heightened energy and, as we relieve the symptoms mentioned above, there will be great inner joy which sets the stage for realizing our deepest desires.

I want to help you! That is why I offer the classes and services I offer. You are welcome to call me and talk to me. You will begin to feel better with actions and tips you can learn quickly and easily.

Listening: Angels are Talking

With some down time and the recent holiday with family I gained fresh insight about the benefits of listening.  As I focused less on business and more on health and family I found I had even more opportunity for listening. The listening I am speaking of is the listening which takes place when we commune with Spirit/Divinity/God.  Spiritual listening is about taking the time to calm, focus and listen to our Higher Self. This type of listening has also been a topic many have recently talked about during classes and coaching sessions. In our present state of experiencing higher frequencies as we move into a higher dimension many are “hearing” the call to listen. Some individuals hear their name called and find no one in the physical is calling them. Others hear sounds such as tapping or knocking and find no one (in the physical) is there. Considering these statements and discussing the situations most individuals experience enlightenment when they recognize it is very likely their Higher Self is trying to speak. In these discussions I defined a few key tips about listening to our Divinity/God.

Focusing on the NOW and living in the moment for as little as 15 minutes while coming from that place of self acceptance and love will set the stage for quiet time. Affirmations such as, “I am peace; I am safe,” may help you feel safe when opening your heart to hear what your Higher Self/Spirit has to say. Take time to really feel this as you begin to relax.

If you experience what we often call monkey mind – that endless chatter within – relax as you look at these thoughts and then release them. Recently, while meditating and listening I came up with a great idea for a post on facebook – that is an example of monkey mind. I let the thought come and go and then I went back to breathing and my affirmation. I turned my focus to how I felt and the energy surrounding me.

Three tips on listening:

  • Be open to listening; Allow Self to hear the loving guidance and messages from Spirit/God/Goddess
  • Create a space where you feel safe, protected and peaceful. Use an affirmation you like which makes you feel safe.
  • Relax and allow the monkey mind thoughts to come and go – look at them and release them. Turn your focus to what you are feeling – the energy; the emotions

Just as we build a habit to “speak from the heart” we have the ability to build a habit to “listen with the heart”. Taking small intervals of time and meditating we have the opportunity to tune in and listen. Ask Spirit/Divinity/God to speak to you; you are ready to listen. In this state we are opening ourselves to be guided, directed and loved.

Permission: The Rewards of Allowing

This week I was not feeling well and fought the inclination to keep moving.  There is always so much to do and I began to be concerned about missed opportunities if I chose to take the time to rest and heal.  It did not take long for me to decide on my action.  I gave myself permission to take time and allow my body to heal.  It seemed as though giving myself permission was a turning point.  I immediately felt a weight had been lifted; I relaxed into the thoughts of healing and getting some sleep.

I have been finding out more and more the rewards of allowing my life and the world around me to unfold.  It is a habit which, in the beginning, takes some focus and effort however, the rewards are great.  When I began to develop this habit I noticed that as soon as I thought of allowing, my shoulders relaxed, then my entire body.  It is as though the responsibility of self judgment and judging others disappears and in its place is the knowing that all is as it should be.  As I continued to bring allowing into my life I noticed feelings of happiness, love and inner joy sprang into my being as soon as I let go of the negative feelings of self-denial, judging and control.

Permission and allowing are synonymous – closely related in meaning.  Often one word is more powerful than the other.  For me, in this instance, saying, “This is okay, Angel – you have your permission to stop and heal,” was very powerful.
So, I wanted to relay to you the fantastic rewards of allowing, giving permission, for your life to unfold.
  • Stress disappears, the body relaxes
  • An awareness of living in the present moment comes into focus
  • Emotions switch over to positive; seeing the possibilities takes place
  • Desires begin to pop into reality

What was my desire?  I wanted to let go and allow time for healing. I wanted to feel well, wanted someone to take care of me and wanted some assistance with healing.  All of these things came into my reality!  I appreciate you all for sending your love and healing.

Manifesting: Joyously Creating

This week I held my first class on Manifesting Your Desires and it was very successful.  I wanted to share some of the highlights with you.

Manifesting is all about the Law of Attraction.  What you think and feel is your reality.  You create every moment of your existence and you – and only you – have the ability to change what you are creating.

Stay in your own energy and set boundaries to help you control what is unfolding around you.  Understand that everyone around you is manifesting their own realities.

Let go of the negative and fearful thoughts and emotions in your life.  You choose your emotions.  Ask yourself, “Is this a negative thought or an intuition?” Act on it or release it – with love.  Bring emotions such as love, joy and bliss into your reality.  Build a habit of living in joy and looking for the positive.  Practice the art of allowing.  Allow life to unfold around you as you allow others to create their own reality.

Focus on, “What do I really want?” When you are ready to manifest the physical or material things you desire, give it to the Universe in great joy!  The Universe will immediately begin to make it happen.  Understand you may have to take action to bring your manifestation into reality.  For instance, if you desire a better job or new career, it may be wise to begin networking, job searches or a return to education.

Keep a Gratitude Journal and write down the things that you appreciated during the day.  You know, I discovered writing is too much like work so it does not happen regularly however, speaking aloud is very powerful.  As I fall asleep I give appreciation out loud.  When I awake I am full of appreciation and joy.  It is a new day with more joy and more to appreciate.

Live in the present – BE in the NOW.  Take meditation breaks, nature walks or other activities that keep you focused on the present.  Appreciate your life in the now.

Expect your manifestations to come into your reality.  Daydream about what your desires and add details.  Expect it as though it is already there and feel the joyous emotions of what you have created.

Like a child, be excited and have fun with it.  I would love to have your come to the next Manifesting Your Desires class.

Acceptance: Diversity of Community

Over the weekend I was in San Diego for the Big Vision Conference.  When I arrived, the first thing I did was go to the beach.  I met a woman there who would influence my entire weekend and give me lasting insight.  During our conversation I discovered this woman is what they locally call a “Traveler”.  She explained that a Traveler is a person who chooses to live out of their car, traveling from one place to the next.  The Travelers find a job and work long enough to support their needs.  Then they leave the job world and enjoy a freedom that few of us can even comprehend.  Travelers meet up, develop friendships and do things together.  While I was there clothing was being handed out to those in need.  Others worked the beach, picking up trash everyone leaves behind.  They were serving humans and Mother Earth.

Society judges people like the Travelers as transients, the homeless and bums.  However, the Travelers life style set me to thinking.  Many people around the globe get up, go to work, come home and sit in front of the TV.  They own material things, are surrounded by opportunities; yet many seem caught in a cycle of low energy activities which in turn affects their health and well being.  Yes, there are also many who are active participants in their communities and with families.

I asked myself, “What is the difference between what society considers a typical community and people such as the Travelers?”  I looked closer at the Travelers.  I saw their interconnectedness, their concern and their love for each other and all those around them.  I saw them offer strangers a helping hand and sharing.  I watched as they picked up trash from the beach area, keeping our environment clean.  They accepted me immediately.  I felt included, connected and loved.  I knew I could return any time to the Travelers and be welcomed.  I knew they were as much a community as those we live in.

Attending the conference I also felt a connection there.  Perhaps part of the acceptance was that many of us worked in the same fields of expertise.  I felt just as accepted and loved at my five star hotel, full of Healers and other Metaphysical practitioners, as I did at the beach when enjoying time with the Travelers.  In a single weekend I came across two diverse communities, both accepting me as I am.

I was gifted with wondrous insight about community and even more, about acceptance!  I accept myself as I am; I allow my life to unfold.  By allowing others to follow their own path, without judgment, it becomes easy to show my acceptance and love.  In the future when I see people who appear to be without community I will have greater compassion, love and acceptance.

Happiness: Choose it – it is Delightful!

Have you ever chased the Ice Cream Truck?  I remember running through the house, screaming to my Mama, chasing the truck down the street and being so excited about getting ice cream from the Ice Cream Person!  I would be full of laughter and anticipation of my wondrous treat.  It just was not the same as going to the store for this special treat.  This wonderful memory was made fresh when I saw – and actually ran after – an Ice Cream Truck at a friends house.  And the truck was my favorite color too – purple!  I was happy to bring back that feeling of joy.  It reminded me how serious we take life as we grow into adulthood.

I challenge each and every one of you to think back to a wonderful memory and get happy!   It is a choice.  I was recently at the grocery store and it was busy.  I noticed the people around me were not even smiling.  I could feel they were really uptight.  I put a smile on my face, took a deep breath and began thinking about Tai Chi in the park and I began to feel really happy.  So, choose your thoughts and be happy!

Who Am I and Why Am I Here?

What leads people to their spiritual path?  I often think of the synchronicity which took place in my life that completely changed my course.  My Sister-in-law talked to me about Reiki.  At the time I thought it was all “voo-doo” stuff and I had no interest in it.  Then I began to see a massage therapist and even though I loved the benefits of massage I began to get sensitive when she touched me.  Fibromyalgia was one of my physical challenges and just the mere touch from others was irritating and uncomfortable.  When I explained this to her, my massage therapist suggested I allow her to do Reiki with me.  Although I felt cautious because of my Catholic background I allowed her to do a session.  I was amazed that I could feel waves of energy and then I knew there had to be something to this Reiki stuff.

I went on to become a Reiki Master.  I recognized myself as an Empath and because I could feel so strongly I was able to help others.  I practiced Reiki at a local Farmer’s Market where someone asked me if I ever considered doing Spiritual Counseling.  I returned to schooling and brought Spiritual Counseling into my Reiki Sessions.  I returned for more schooling to learn about energy.  As my training and skills expanded I became interested in opening a Wellness Center.  I had a great desire to help others who, like myself, were looking for that “something more” in life.  I opened my Lightworkers Gifts and Energy Healing Center.  In the ten years I have walked my path I have learned much about many modalities in the metaphysical community.  More than that, I have learned about myself – who I am and how I can help others.  It is almost as though I am paying forward the guidance and love that several others offered to me as I began this journey.

I often hear others tell how they too feel as though synchronicity played a role when they were yearning for something unknown in their life.  The stories are filled with enlightenment, self knowing, new talents, greater creativity and a desire to help others as they were helped.  These stories are also often filled with joy, laughter and deep appreciation.

So how to get started?  From what I observe and hear, people are still asking the age old question, “Who am I and why am I here?”  When we begin to search, and because we have asked the question, our Higher Self, our God/Goddess or Spirit guides us to an amazing journey.  In my opinion we are always on our path.  When we resonate with others who are asking the same question, when we allow enlightenment and begin to have fun with this eye opening experience, our path appears before us!  Would you like to be crystal clear on what your path is?  October’s Special – an hour and a half Coaching Session for $75.00 (Wow! That is $25.00 off!).

A New Way of Networking: Energy Weaving

AZ Social Networking was originally launched as Christina Wagners 905 Meetup. When I owned my Wellness Center this was the first Meetup I attended where the objective was to meet and network with other small business owners.  When I met Christina she told me she started this Meetup because she had a fear of public speaking and felt this type of gathering would give her the opportunity to practice speaking in front of groups.  The Meetup was held in a restaurant where the noise was a distraction.  I asked Christina if perhaps she would like to hold future meetings at my Center and she agreed.  After several months Christina moved her Meetup to the Aloft Hotel.

In January, 2010, after moving my Center I started attending these Meetups again.  Due to a career change Christina graciously turned this Meetup group over to me in April of 2012.  Since then this Meetup has taken on a whole new spin.  The previous focus of networking evolved into “netweaving”!

We weave the tapestry of our lives through our experiences.  Weaving our tapestry we include all the wondrous people, places, observations, actions and realizations which make up our beautiful, individual tapestry. As we meet others we often weave them into our tapestry and their beauty becomes a part of our beauty.  And so it is with AZ Social Networking.  Through the experience of meeting with other business people we have the opportunity to tell others what we love to do.  This creates a synergy as well as a fellowship which connects and motivates everyone. It is no longer networking!

Come join us at AZ Social Networking (Netweaving) every third Thursday at 9 AM!

Crying: More than Tears

Most of us in our childhood were taught crying was a weakness. When I cried I heard statements like, “What is the matter with you?” and “I will give you something to cry about!” I learned it was best not to cry or to hide my tears. Many of us grew up this way and some remain solid as a rock, holding in emotions that might generate tears. When my spiritual journey began I found crying was a great way to release emotions which were stored up over the years. I learned crying was not a “bad thing” and I usually feel great after a good cry. Recently I did a little research and found there are several health benefits of tears.

Most of us know – from crying – that it reduces stress and calms emotions. Many of us also know crying is a way to rid the eyes of irritants while lubricating the eyes. Crying releases endorphins – those “feel good” hormones while also detoxifying, getting rid of hormones that are harmful to different parts of our body. Tears contain a chemical known as lysozyme, a natural anti-bacterial that works to keep infections from happening in the eyes. And because the tear ducts are connected to the inside of the nose, crying cleanses the nose of harmful bacteria and irritants. Crying is good for relationships when you cry in front of others. It allows you to be vulnerable in front of others and allows them to take care of you, creating emotional bonds.

Spiritually speaking, I see Lightworkers shed tears for many emotions such as joy, gratitude, grief, inner peace and enlightenment. Crying may also take place in Coaching Sessions and Readings. Remember, water can move mountains, one tear at a time!

Bursts of Energy: Self Reflection

As an Empath I continue to feel the impact of the shifting and fluctuating energies created by planetary alignments, continued Solar flares, the recent meteor shower and even last weeks Blue Moon.  I especially feel stronger emotions which seem to wash over me more frequently.  With the ever changing energies and heightened emotions I am more Self aware.  As I “look in the mirror” I see Self truth in my relationships.  There is change and intensity with relationships as some grow stronger while others run their course and different paths are taken.  The dynamics of some relationships evolve, taking on new meaning while new relationships come into creation.

It seems as though I am looking at relationships with sharper vision.  I see and feel the affect my words and behaviors have on others.  As this vision takes place I am empowered to change and adjust, bringing additional balance and harmony to Self as well as all my relationships.  I renew myself with honor knowing I must honor Self before I can honor anything or anyone else.  I consider the term “quiet strength” and how there is sometimes more value when nothing is said.  By occasionally becoming the observer I allow and support lifes natural unfolding.  With that said, communication becomes vital as a common ground for understanding different viewpoints and building mutual, trusting relationships.
