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.

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.

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!).

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!
