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.

Cicadas Song Becomes Confirmation

I went to Prescott this last week for some “me” time.  I wanted to get away from all the electronics and spend time in nature.  Even with this in mind I took along my computer.  Although Wi-Fi was available I could not get on the internet.  I laughed a little knowing I was there to get away from what I actually brought along!  With the internet excluded I found other little things to do.
As I made my way through this time I began to realize I did not have to push so hard in my day to day life and taking some quiet time was beneficial.  I slowed my pace, felt more in balance and connected to nature.  I spoke to the Cicadas that at times were quite loud.  I spoke to them about “being” as they are; to exist in the moment, to grow and be in nature.  I felt the Cicadas song was just for me – a song of confirmation that quiet time is healing.  Watch the video and listen to their beautiful song!
When I returned to the city and came back on line I realized I did not miss anything.  I discovered I had greater clarity and focus.  Many of my manifested desires seemed to pop all around me.

My experience is similar to what just happened to a friend of mine.  She accidentally locked herself out of her house and onto the patio.  When she told me about it she said the experience forced her into a quiet time.  She relaxed, meditated and spent time loving her plants and surrounding trees.

Spending quiet time has so many benefits!  Whether you meditate, spend time in nature, manifest or BE in the moment, the quiet brings balance, peace, inner joy, introspection and the answer to our desires.

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.

Patience: Allowing Life to Unfold

We have all experienced times where our patience runs thin. We tense up and may even become aggressive in words or actions. The best example of this is the lack of patience we see while driving. Drivers may seem to become entirely different people when they are rushing to complete errands or make appointments on time. Sometimes these situations are comical however, they show a lack of focus on remaining calm and practicing patience.

I am occasionally an impatient person myself! When this happens I feel the energy building and surging without an outlet. The tone of my voice changes and I begin to lose focus on allowing life to unfold. My inner self tells me to seek calm while my mind is racing ahead. I work with myself to bring back the calm. I stop and think some key thoughts and take actions which give me the ability to become patient. Allowing, whether with myself or others brings on a calm where practicing patience becomes effortless. The following are a few tips on how to stand in your power yet practice patience.

  • Take inventory of your energy. Where does yours end and others begin? Grounding and centering yourself might make an immediate difference.
  • Ask yourself, “How can I help” or “Do I need to step in and help?” Helping others to improve a situation, without judging, may bring everyone back into focus and the practice of patience.
  • How are you feeling? If you are feeling stressed and know you are losing your patience you may find that stopping to take some deep breaths will  bring about focus, generate positive thoughts and allow calm to come in. The “Toilet Exercises” are always helpful!

So, breathe and allow! You will be amazed as life unfolds around you as you practice mindfulness and joy!

“Adopt the pace of nature. Her secret is patience.”  ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Power! Confidence! Balance! Setting Boundaries

In my practice I have found that people do not understand boundaries and many do not have boundaries. Personal boundaries are guidelines, rules or limits that people create to identify, for themselves, what are reasonable, safe and permissible ways for other people to behave around them. Boundaries include how an individual will respond when someone steps outside those limits. They are built out of a mix of beliefs, opinions, attitudes, past experiences and social learning.

Personal boundaries define you as an individual, outlining your likes and dislikes, and setting the distances you allow others to approach. They include physical, mental, psychological and spiritual boundaries, involving beliefs, emotions and intuitions.

When setting my boundaries it is a way of loving and caring for myself. I found that the boundaries I set in my life play a key role in successful, healthy relationships with others. My boundaries also help me manage my daily life. For instance, when someone I know calls me, they might hear me say I have so many minutes to talk and we may or may not need to talk later. When we discuss it we might go ahead and set up a good time for a call back.  When people visit my home I am very open about my boundaries. I let others know where to find extra water, snacks, the bathroom location and more depending on the situation.

The following are a few good tips on setting boundaries.

  • Know your likes and dislikes; know yourself
  • Identify boundaries you wish to set
  • Tell others
  • Stick to the boundaries you set.

Other people want to know your boundaries. It helps them feel comfortable around you and it urges them to honor your boundaries. When people know and communicate their boundaries everyone benefits. Interested in learning more about boundaries?

Confusion to Clarity…Retrograde [video]

Have you been feeling like you are  “coming and going” at the same time! I have some what.. Decision making seems to take longer. Could it be because Mercury and Uranus are retrograde at the same time? It may not be a time to begin a new venture according to one while the other promotes creativity and expressing yourself. The energy might feel confusing.

Have you heard about this retrograde thing?  Retrograde happens when a planet appears to be moving in a direction opposite to the direction it actually moves when using the Earth as a point of reference.  Planets are never actually retrograde or stationary; they just seem that way because we are observing their rotation from the Earth.  There are three phases of retrograde:

  • Pre retrograde shadow: The period just before retrograde begins; the planet is going in its usual “Direct” pattern
  • Retrograde: The period where the planet appears to be in a backward motion
  • Post retrograde shadow: The period where the planet has turned again and is going in its usual “Direct” pattern.

I am taking lots of time to breathe.  I am also grounding myself before I make decisions. I focus on going with the flow of life knowing all is as it should be. I also understand that the New Moon is a time to recharge, refocus and create new beginnings. I just love this gathering at my home!

Creating is Your Inner Child~Laugh Out Loud (video)

One of the concerns I often hear from clients is their feeling of emptiness or feeling they are alone. I understand that feeling and have felt it myself. I feel our Higher Self/God and our “Inner Child” are always there with us.

When I discussed this with a client last week I had a renewed realization that my creativity comes from within, from my Inner Child. Using my tools and techniques I create classes, mindful of what I teach and live. I know my spoken word is a powerful and inspiring. I take time with my Inner Child to help center myself with my creativity. What I create is me! I create my next action and consider how it will benefit me and everyone around me.

One of my routines is going within and communing with Spirit and my Inner Child. It confirms I am not alone and they are there to help along with my Angels and guides. In the Shining Wheel, adolescence is symbolized in the South position. Taking quiet time and being in this position helps me focus on my love for my Inner Child. I am accepting of my life, my path and myself because I see through eyes filled with excitement and the possibility of fun. I laugh often and look for ways to have fun.

I love being with children. Taking part in their world is returning to my childhood and seeing everything through a child’s eyes. The simple act of being amazed at a lizard or the color of the sky is allowing my Inner Child to come forth. I believe many adults love bringing out their Inner Child simply because, as children they were not always able to express or be the child.

Your Inner Child is full of fun and excitement and ready to play! I can help you find your Inner Child. When is the last time you ran around the park flying a kite? How long has it been since you walked outside just to look at the flowers, hug a tree or find amazing shapes in the clouds? Connect with and love your Inner Child! You will be surprised at the fun just waiting for you to give the okay! So, watch my video and laugh out loud!

Spiritual Independence

This week our country celebrates Independence Day. This is one of our most loved holidays commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. When I think of independence I also think of my spiritual enlightenment.

Raised in the Catholic Church I learned their theology and practices until I became a young adult. Then I began a journey of self discovery that included a several other religions. I talked to a lot of people from different religious back grounds and read books about other religions. Being an Empath I wanted to feel the energy of some religions so I attended church services of different denominations. At one point I became a re-born Christian. I continued to feel driven to search for a belief system that felt just right for me. I attended Buddhist services, spent some time with a Spiritual Sage and hung out for a while with a Mystic. I began to form my own beliefs, feeling my way to harmony in my heart. I gained spiritual independence by researching and participating in a variety of beliefs then creating what felt good to me. Once I felt what was right for me, I released the past and all the old patterns.

It is wise for everyone to seek their own spiritual independence. When we seek the knowledge and take actions to find our truth we gain spiritual independence. It’s time to see with different eyes!

If you are at a point in your spiritual journey where you would like to release old patterns, come and join in the Releasing Old Patterns class on Saturday.

Shifting Energy…WOW!

Are you feeling the chaotic energy? Are you feeling out of alignment, out of sorts? With three eclipses one after another, the alignment of the planets, solar flares and the poles shifting, I feel it too. It seems like I’m helping more and more people understand the wisdom in spending more time centering and creating balance in the winds of change. I’m finding that teaching peace and finding more peace within myself is one of the keys.

With all the changes this is an intense time. It is our time to grow and come into our power. Connect to who you are and build a stronger foundation based on self trust. Creating and maintaining a strong connection with our selves will build confidence as we all step into the unknown. I feel it is then that we will experience these changes and growth with love and joy.

When we open more fully to all the shifting of the energies, the frequencies, or vibrations which are moving around and through us, you will see the awesomeness of you. I am open to receiving the gifts of the Universe/God. So I encourage you to embrace the greatness within you and SHINE ON!

Accepting Myself through My Dad’s Eyes

One of my fondest memories as a child was the excitement of Dad coming home and playing basketball games such as Horse and Pig. As a family, another memory is about our camping trips. For me, the campfire songs and Smores were the highlights from these trips.

Dad works in the field of Counseling and, as you know, I am a Coach. Our relationship has grown into an adult relationship where we can talk about anything. When we have a difference of opinion we’re both okay with it. We have different beliefs and live quite different lives however; he supports me and loves me for who I am. Every week I meet my Dad for lunch and just chat for a while. I look forward to seeing him every Monday.

When Dad recently had a heart attack, I took a close look at our relationship and what I learned from him. One of the biggest things Dad taught me was accepting and balancing my Yin Yang energy. I say accepting because when I consider myself, I feel I have more masculine energy, which in our social structure always made me feel less than. Thanks, Dad, for your unconditional love and really seeing me! I love you, Dad!

We are all Fathers to all children around the world!
Happy Father’s Day to all!
