Awareness of Spirit – Noticing the Signs

I am a medium, and I communicate with spirits every day. I know it may seem like I have a superpower but being a medium just means that I am kind of the messenger, the interpreter for spirits on the other side of the veil.

Everyone receives messages from spirits, not just people like me who call themselves mediums. In a sense, everyone is a medium. Everyone has the gift to communicate to those who have left the physical world.

As you bring your awareness to this ability to receive messages, know that the first way to get in touch with this gift is to be open. As you open your heart and trust that it is possible to communicate or receive signs, then your friends, family members, and loved ones from the spirit world bring you more powerful messages.

Sometimes, the messages are simple. You may see a beautiful monarch butterfly outside and at that exact moment you are thinking of your mom. Maybe a song comes on the radio with the perfect words you needed to hear or its the song that you and your friend listened to all the time.

See, they don’t always bring you really big messages because you often do not need more than a slight nudge or moment of validation to know that you are following the right path in life.

There are other times when they do speak a little loudly through your thoughts, feelings, and memories. If you suddenly find yourself remembering a memory of your loved one, maybe even one that was really hysterical, cute, or whimsical then know they are trying to say, “hello, I’m here with you, right now, right now I’m here with you.”

Spirits have different ways of communicating. As a medium, I often see images of spirits in my mind’s eye or in dreams, and I hear them speak to me as they relay messages for me to deliver to others. They can be rather funny too though.

They occasionally like to move things around or flicker the lights or my favorite one is ringing my doorbell. Today, it happened again. I woke up to the doorbell ringing, but I was the only one that heard it. One time, when I was sleeping, I heard the doorbell ring, and at the exact same moment I saw an image of one of my beloved cats, who is now in the spirit world, standing at the front door.  I thought, “oh, he must have come by to say hi.”

On a family member’s birthday, I had a similar thing happen where I was asleep and heard the doorbell ring and saw an image of my deceased grandmother standing at the front door with a nice pretty dress with flowers like she was coming to attend the party. She was also the same grandmother who knocked three times on my windows for several weeks in a row to make sure I didn’t forget about the anniversary of her passing.

When spirits want to get your attention, know that they will find a way, but they don’t want to scare you. They want to remind you to laugh more, to let love be a big part of your life, to be a little goofy at times. They want to let you know that they are okay and that they support you in your life. They want you to know that it is awesome when you are just being you.

Here are 7 tips for communicating with spirits and holding a space for joy:

  1. Joyful Memories – Bring forward memories of your loved ones, happy moments, fun photos, keepsakes, anything that places a reminder of their energy in your heart.
  2. Gratitude for Life – In your daily life, notice the small details and show gratitude for every tiny bit of it. Being grateful is being aware.
  3. Thank the Stars When you have an extraordinary day, something that happens out of the blue that brings a big smile to your face, know that you were guided by the stars in the heavens above.
  4. Celebrate Connections – Reach out to others in your life to create strong bonds and support systems. These connections are your soul family.
  5. Cherish Every Moment – Life is short and can pass by in a blink of an eye so allow yourself to fully feel love and be present in every experience.
  6. Notice Nature – Spirit is overflowing in nature – in the trees, the flowers, the birds, in the sky, everywhere. The simplest signs in nature can bring the greatest inspiration.
  7. Pray, Breathe, and Meditate – Slow down at times and practice pauses in life where you are able to quiet your mind long enough to hear the messages in your heart. That is your lifeline to the spirit world.

Chakra Awakening – Sacral Chakra – Create With Passion and Purpose

The sacral chakra is the creative space for your energy and is reflected in all areas of your life. As the energy flows through your chakras, the sacral chakra, drives the force of passion by opening doorways to experiences which reflect this passion and build on it and show the world who you are.

You are a sensitive soul at times, and build a brighter light by following your purpose, your calling, your reason for getting up to watch the sunrise or explore the new adventures which are waiting for you.

When you tap into your sacral chakra, you are digging deep into the emotional body of who you are as a soul, but also who you would like to be in this life, as a radiant joy, as a beaming candle, as a mentor for others to show how they may also follow what brings them that infinite state of joy.

Who you are is not what you see, it’s what you feel. It’s what you know when you have investigated all of the things in this life which interest you and bring you excitement as though you are a kid in a candy store.

When you are led by the energy of your sacral chakra, there is a sensual dance that comes to life within you. It allows the kundalini energy to begin to rise to your solar plexus, your powerhouse, and turn those wheels toward the fortune of success and abundance.

When you allow yourself to feel through your sacral chakra, you open your energy to not only feeling what is coming towards you from spirit and from other souls, but also to release that which no longer needs to be a part of your world.

In that releasing, you may feel that deeper shift, that need to cry or to feel as though you have been broken into a million pieces, but that release is needed and it is not to tell you that you are weak or broken, for you are really none of those at all.

You are healed in that release. 

You are healed the moment you let go. The moment you shed a tear, one, two, or many more, you let go long enough to see the real you and to know that even though you may have walked a difficult journey in this life, know that you survived, and you still have that passion intact.

Nothing can take that away. That is your gift from the universe because the universe wants you to be happy and share this happiness with others and to live from the full expression of your creative power.

Creativity is not just for those who are artists or writers or any number of activities, hobbies, and careers that connect deeply to that creative mode. Your sacral chakra is the creative force for many areas of your life, and allowing that energy to flow through strongly, brings an elevated level of your true expression.  Creativity is simply thinking and feeling beyond your physical form.

The sacral chakra allows you to connect an energetic lifeline to this power within you. When you are searching for a new perspective, a unique answer to a circumstance, or the inspiration for your next step in life, attune your energy to the sacral chakra, meditate within this space, and really listen to what is being said and what you are feeling.

Led by passion, catapulted by purpose, your sacral chakra awaits what is next for you to experience, what next dance you choose, where your energy will take you. It is the random mysteries of life, the surprises along the way, and the playfulness of letting go which nourish your sacral chakra and allow you to breathe in the biggest breath of life.

Chakra Awakening – Soul Wisdom of the Crown Chakra

Chakra Awakening – Soul Wisdom of the Crown Chakra

Do you ever wonder what messages the divine has for your soul? When you begin to awaken to what messages of love and peace are flowing to you, then you are allowing the energy within your crown chakra to resonate at this higher frequency and connect to your soul. You can sense these messages and receive a never-ending flow of wisdom from the love within the universe directly to your heart and soul.

Crown Chakra as the Cosmic Bridge

The crown chakra is the 7th chakra within your energy centers, and it is the gateway or bridge to your soul, it is the communication to the cosmos and beyond. Essentially, you communicate with spirit through the energy which streams from your crown chakra. Located at the crown of the head, this chakra is where you connect to your higher self and the wisdom from your many lifetimes as a soul.

There is a higher state of consciousness and a greater awareness of the soul as you allow communication to flow through your crown chakra. Violet and white colors are associated with this chakra as it is a spiritual energy center pulling in divine love energy.

Your Heart Interprets the Messages

As you awaken to this higher level of consciousness flowing from your crown chakra, the information you receive connects to your heart where you decipher the messages and determine the greater purpose, the deeper meaning, and the connection to spirit. In that moment of allowing your crown chakra to communicate the truth of who you are, you trust that what feels right in your heart is where you must go in this life.

Energy Balance is Key

Before opening and balancing the crown chakra, begin with connecting to the earth and grounding your energy through the root chakra. Once you have this strong connection to the earth, you can begin to balance your other chakra centers such as the sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, and third eye working your way up all your energy centers until you reach the crown chakra. Your soul seeks this balance and harmony, and the true balance lies within the heart as it is there that both the earth and the cosmos come together in a rhythm which flows with the energy of you.

When you are ready to heal and balance your crown chakra and receive the messages from divine love, begin to choose activities which connect you to this higher spiritual truth. Yoga, journaling, walking in nature, listening to healing music, meditating, and surrounding yourself with the healing colors of the violet flame of love and the white essence of spirit guide your soul to these deeper connections and the individual healing for your soul. Crystals such as amethyst, selenite, clear quartz, moonstone, lepidolite, and howlite assist with opening the communication pathways to the divine and balancing the energy as it moves from your crown chakra to the other energy centers. 

Spirit Speaks Through You With Love

The energy of spirit always connects to your soul, and this energy waits for you to hear and feel the messages of love. As you awaken to your power within this world, and the higher messages from the spirit world, know that you are a gift from the universe. When you communicate with the divine source of love, you are teaching your heart how to find the wisdom within and how to slow down and feel the energy moving through your heart and soul. You are teaching your soul how to be present in the energy of love.

 

 

 

Soul Story – Meditating From the Soul With Love

Soul Story

Meditating From the Soul With Love – Leaving Worries and Stress Behind

I like to begin each day with a meditation, but if you had asked me a few years ago if I meditated, I would have said no. The truth is I am a recovering stress junkie so you would think that with living a fast-paced lifestyle I would have turned to meditation and relaxation techniques. At that time, even feeling chaos all around me, I neglected to listen to what my mind, body, and soul needed. During the early adult years of my life, I was as far from relaxed as possible and terribly disconnected from my own soul. I thought that meditation was only for those who were more advanced spiritually or for those who could easily quiet their minds. I had a concept of meditation as the existence of absolute silence and nothing more.

Recovering With Meditation

Why did someone who was experiencing so much stress not mediate? I was afraid I would not be able to find the silence. I also was in denial that I needed to slow down my life and find my heart again. For me, it took an illness to transform my life and introduce me for the first time to meditation. When I meditated, I listened to music and guided meditations because it was the only way to get through another day of a tough recovery. Gradually, over several months, my mind slowed down and began to quiet for short amounts of time. I finally realized that I could find a peace in my mind again, it just took practice.

When you let your mind wander for years and years and develop a habit of worrying and overthinking, it becomes necessary to retrain the mind to find a calm state. As your mind learns these new habits, it can take pauses long enough for your soul to speak up. During my own journey with meditation, I discovered how many lessons my soul was waiting to teach me. I spent years not listening to the guidance and love from my soul, and now, finally, I heard every word.

Meditating With Love

My soul wished to tell me how important it was to love myself which for me meant spending time in meditation or journaling outside in nature. Now, every time I meditate I send a little more of this love energy to my soul, and I discover new things about my soul, the universe, and beyond. Meditation is not about the silence anymore, it is about feeling the energy in my heart and trusting where that feeling takes me. Through my meditation journey, I discovered that I did not have to experience silence, I just needed to feel my heart and soul and my soul needed to feel love.Website-Header-Name-Large-Connected-1016-Transparent

Breathing Peace in Your Soul

Breathing-Peace-In-Your-Soul-Blog-Post-022F072F2018-768x432

Breathe in Positive Energy to Find Peace and Balance in Your Soul

Have you ever noticed how you breathe? Do you take shallow or deep breaths? Do you breathe from your chest or your abdomen? Your breathing is an automatic function of your nervous system. It is easy to take for granted this simple mechanism that brings your mind, body, and soul life energy. As you breathe air in and out of your body, you are also breathing in and moving energy within your soul in a rhythm with the universe.

When life becomes overwhelming and stressful, you may have inadvertently trained your body to breathe with the rhythm of these stressful responses leading to shallow breaths that fail to fill your soul with positive energy. You can learn how to relax and retrain your breathing patterns so that your soul connects to healing and rejuvenating energy.

Find times throughout the day to focus on how you are holding stress within your body, to feel the movement of the air in and out of your lungs, and to sense what emotions and mental blocks may be preventing you from fully accepting your soul and taking care of you. Increase your awareness and breathe in the energy that provides balance for your soul.

 

5 Steps to Breathe for Peace and Balance:

1. Make You a Priority

Choose a few minutes every day to make your health and energy a priority. During this precious time, make a note of how you feel physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. If there is anything missing in one of these areas, ask your soul what you need to heal. Your soul knows the answer, and it is unique to you.

2. Practice Breathing

Play healing music or sit outside in nature and reconnect to your soul. Practice breathing from your belly. Practice breathing as though you are taking in the abundant energy of the universe specifically designed for your soul. Over time, it will become easier to tap into this simple slow pace of life.

3. Notice the Quiet

As your soul learns to breathe again and take little pauses to just be present, notice that there are longer gaps of silence. Your soul brightens with each of these moments. You do not need to fill the quiet space, just be you, just sit and feel your soul. Your soul is free in the quiet. Your soul is finding peace.

4. Plan for Challenges

Know that the greatest power you have as a soul is to overcome challenges, and you overcome the hard times by bringing out your inner soul strength. This soul strength builds from the breaths of positive energy you allow for your soul. Breathe in to create the strength that paves the way for your soul.

5. You Are the Peace

Your soul is peace. Life is just a learning experience, a distraction to who you really are at the soul level. Underneath the deadlines, the expectations, and the daily grind of life, your soul is peace, and you can find this balance again by breathing in the energy that aligns with your soul. Your soul fills with brilliant light energy with every breath you take. Take deep breaths and thank the universe for the gift of you.

Belly Breathing for Your Soul

In the practice of belly breathing, start by slowly breathing in through your nose, and as you do this, place a hand on your belly and notice the air expand in the space of your belly pushing your abdomen out. If you are doing this correctly, you should notice the movement in your belly, not your chest. During the exhale, breathe out through your mouth slowly allowing your belly to relax and shrink to a normal size. You can also practice belly breathing by holding counts of 5 to 10 seconds after breathing air into your belly and then slowly releasing this air. Visualize the air you are breathing in and out by imagining beautiful healing energy coming into your body, and as you breathe out, imagine releasing stagnant energy or any fears or worries that no longer serve your soul.

Nurturing the Lightworker

How to Balance Your Energy as a Lightworker and Keep Shining Your Light

There are many lightworkers in the world right now helping bring in more light to the world, radiating peace and love, and helping other souls heal and connect to the divine source of love and light. If you are a lightworker, then you know how powerful the calling is to spread positive vibes in the world, but as you are doing this great work, have you been taking care of your own energy needs?

If you are a sending out too much energy in your healing work and overcommitting to clients, events, and opportunities than you may be neglecting the energy balance in your soul. Yes, there are great deeds needing completion in this lifetime and many ways that lightworkers can spread their love and light, but you must nurture your own soul first before you can fully connect to the souls who need your great wisdom.

Tips for Living a Balanced Life as a Lightworker

1. Establish Boundaries

Know what your boundaries are when working with clients or performing work for others. Although you may have this burning desire to save the world in one day, you are simply the conduit and connector to the light. Every soul needs to find their own way, and by allowing this energy to naturally flow, you keep yourself protected from the situations of other souls while still helping and assisting with the process of healing.

2. Take Time to Unwind

Establish a daily and weekly routine and set aside sacred time for you, your soul. Allow time for your soul to heal, to relax, and to connect to your higher wisdom. As a lightworker it is easy to become consumed by going to the next appointment, meeting, or event, but it is in the silence and stillness within your soul where you can reset, and this is what helps you to be a grounded and balanced lightworker for other souls.

3. Follow Your Flow

Connect back often with the flow of energy that feels good to your soul and radiates love from your heart. Let the flow of life carry you to the next opportunities and do not allow expectations or the beliefs of others to determine what path you take as a lightworker. Your soul knows what is right for you in each moment. Carry this energy flow with you each day as this shines your light brighter on the world.

4. Attune to You

Listen to your intuitive heart and know when you need to rest, when you need to play and have fun, and when you need to connect with other lightworkers and spiritual teachers. Take time to diverge from your normal activities to connect with joy, laughter, and creativity. It is often when your soul takes a pause to smile that you have the greatest revelations, and you find the energy needs of your soul. Listen to these needs for they are part of your blueprint.

5. Keep Growing as a Soul

Be open to receiving healing messages and energy from others as there is always more room for the soul to grow. As a lightworker, you may start down one path and then take a detour. As you encounter these course corrections know that there is a reason for every experience and interaction in your life. The lessons of the soul never really end, they just evolve and integrate into your beautiful lightworker soul.

You are an important lightworker for which the earth needs you right now. The energy frequency of your love and light is unique. Keep shining your light and nurturing your soul.
