Review: Balanced Guru Body Mists

cropped-chakra-center2.jpgSince I’ve started using essential oils, I’ve become incredibly sensitive to synthetic perfume. Because I love to smell good (what woman doesn’t?!), I’ve been experimenting with different essential oil body mists. And I love finding good ones.

One of my new favorites is from Balanced Guru. Using all organic, cruelty free, recyclable material, this company makes a different body mist to work with each of the seven chakras.

I started with their Intuition and Fearless scents (working with the Balanced Gururoot and third eye chakras). Both mists not only utilize essential oils that assist with the subtle energies of these chakras, but I notice a gentle lightening of my energy body when using them (especially the Intuition, which I’ve been using before doing intuitive readings with clients).

If you’re sensitive to energy at all (especially for those who are empathic) the Fearless mist is an excellent companion for crowded/dense energy spaces. It was on me almost non-stop as I traveled for over a week doing a lot of energy work — definitely a constant source of grounding and comfort — perfect for airports.

The only thing I don’t like about these mists is how small their container is (only 0.27 fl.). As someone who uses essential oils constantly, I went through them a lot quicker than I’d like. I wish they offered them in larger volume.

Essential oil body mists are great for clearing stagnate energy EssentialOils900around your body and helping you connect to your feelings/emotions. There are also hundreds of health benefits associated with essential oils.

It’s worth a quick google search if you’re interested in exploring the topic (or you can also check-out the interview I did with aromatherapist, Athena Ziegler last year, which provides a lot of information and history on the magic of essential oils).

Balanced Guru is currently offering a free gift for first time buyers (no minimum purchase). Simple add in the “notes” section of your order which product of theirs you want to try, and they will send you a free trial size.

My bonus was the No Frizz hair oil. It works just as well as the No frizzargan tree oil I typically use, but I like the smell of it even better (and the scent seems to linger longer, as well).

If you only do one thing to make a difference in the world, choose to support small companies like Balanced Guru (or any of the many, blooming others). It’s important not only for your health and the environment, but for the overall consciousness and vibration of the planet.

Namaste.

Monday’s Magic Spell: Deleting Damaging Programs

cropped-chakra-center2.jpg

Vibrational awareness is the key to change. But one of the oldest (and thickest) programs we’ve been told as a human race is that things cannot change. We’ve believed for so long the external world is in control of us, that we’re victims, and what we think/feel/experience is inconsequential at best, evil at worst.

Of course, we all know now that it couldn’t be further from the truth. Yet, we’ve lived with these programs for so long that we’ve somehow come to believe the residue left behind is WHO WE ARE (rather than simply effects of the system).

The old paradigm of aggressor/victim/savior can only survive if we continue playing those roles. The great news is, we don’t have to agree to that game anymore. We can play a new game. We can have new roles. What would the game look like if we were ALL self-empowered?!

One of the keys to activating the new paradigm in your own life is by healing and balancing your lower chakas. The lower chakras have been so demonized by culture and religion (and even some New Age teachers), that we’ve become confused as to why we even have them. They are associated with our “human nature” — an aspect we’re told we need to destroy. If we can keep the “human” enslaved and controlled, we can have order.

The old paradigm wants to keep you a slave to your feelings/emotions because that’s the only way you can be controlled. As long as you stay out of the power of your lower chakras, you will not be a threat.

How convenient for the old system that one of the programs put in chakra magicplace in our Sacral Chakras is a sort of built-in guilt about our innate power, about receiving, and about pleasure.We’re not allowed to enjoy the world, feel pleasure, or receive without some sort of repercussion, and even attempting to change things sets off triggers of guilt, shame, and fear. We even go so far as to “slay” it, and by exiling the “shade” aspects of ourselves we’ve created our own monsters that we continue to fear.

The fear is just a program. The only truth it holds is the truth we give it. The only power it has is fueled by the emotional convictions we put behind it. And the program itself is one of duality, one that causes the energies of our lower charkas to get out of balance.It’s a game we’re all tired of, yet we continue to victimize ourselves and each other by agreeing with the rules of that paradigm. And the vicious cycle of aggressor/victim/savior continues.

In order for this program to survive, the aggressor needs a victim to terrorize, the victim needs a savior, and the savior who jumps in to rescue needs both (otherwise its role would be void).

What role have you been playing? We all typically slide into one of these roles quite comfortably, or vacillate between all three. And ironically, none of them are empowering.

Ultimately, when you embrace the power of your inner Shade, you are released from the program. It is impossible to be in your power and in the program of aggressor/victim/savior at the same time.

Healing (especially from trauma) takes time, and we need to allow ourselves the freedom to take as long as we need to soothe and comfort wounds caused from the program. But we DO NOT need to keep the program.

So for today’s magic spell, take a long, luxurious look at what the empowered version of you would feel like. See the you that has integrated both light and darkness (in balance) and is free from the aggressor/victim/savior paradigm.

 

What does the empowered YOU look like/feel like?

How does he/she create?

How does he/she luxuriate?

How does he/she look at people?

How does he/she walk?

How does he/she dress?

How does he/she interact with the energy around her/within her?

Simply spend some time playing around with the energy. If it’s too empowered womanhard to put yourself in that role (due to the program still having too much persuasion on your thoughts) imagine you are writing a character that DOES own her power. One who is graceful and powerful and knows how to give and receive in abundance and with true, unconditional love.

Write that character. Indulge in the emotions of what she would FEEL like. Emotions are what drive the creations we bring forth into the world, and transforming/healing your sacral chakra will ultimately be fueled by how you feel.

The intensity of the pain/trauma you’ve experienced in the past does not have to rule you for the rest of your life. Start experimenting with what it would FEEL like to experience something different. You might be amazed at what you find.

Intuitive Traveling: An Interview with Megan Abbott

cropped-chakra-center2.jpg

As many of us are consciously unplugging from the Matrix, we’re megan 4learning new ways of being and manifesting in this world. We, as a human race, are collectively moving toward instant manifestation.

What use to take years to come into our experience is now only taking weeks, sometimes just days. And it’s only getting quicker.

I’ve found in my own journey that one of the most effective ways to practice the art of manifesting is through intuitive traveling. It’s a way of traveling that removes “plans” and agendas (and even budgets) and allows you to simply follow your intuition, allowing the Universe to provide the “how.”

Although I’ve done this in small doses while living in Italy and other places on the planet (and I currently just began a new intuitive travel journey — which I will share about at a later date on Chakra Center), I’ve asked seasoned traveler, Megan Abbott, to stop by and share her experiences with intuitive traveling and offer any tips/advice about how to get started.

Megan has been to many countries around the world, with very little money, planning, or agenda. The experiences and miracles she has encountered on her trips have been nothing short of epic.

*What exactly is “intuitive traveling” and how long have you been doing it?

I was guided to begin my practice of intuitive traveling three years meganago when I found myself spontaneously buying a one-way ticket to Alaska. At the time, the idea of travel was altogether foreign to me, as well as exhilarating and terrifying.

All I knew at the time was that I was hungry for adventure, for the opportunity to experience liberation, to explore and connect with unknown places and new people, and to develop my connection with myself and my source. I also intended on facing and understanding all of my shadows along the way with the hopes of creating the best possible version of myself which is still in the process of becoming.

I had no idea what I had signed myself up for at the time, but going with the flow of my intuitive feeling to “just go” was the best decision I’ve ever made.

I wasn’t planning on getting so hooked on travel, but my experience in Alaska was so mind-blowingly expansive and positive that I proceeded to continue my journey through Hawaii, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Iceland, Sweden, Denmark, and Puerto Rico. In May 2014 I will continue my journey through South America.

All of these travels were done on EXTREMELY minimal money, connections or planning. They were made solely possible through playing with the energies of creation, manifestation, love, visualization, joy and through trusting that the universe has my back every step of the way.

*How does traveling make your life more magical and add to megan6soul expansion?

Intuitive traveling presents us with the opportunity to take leaps of faith, to liberate ourselves, to practice mindfulness, to live in the present moment, and to reconstruct and reprogram ourselves to become more aligned with our true purposes.

*What is your favorite thing about traveling?

My favorite thing about traveling is the way that it has opened me up and connected me to Source energy and to my vital life force. From traveling alone I have learned to become my own best friend and to create an incredibly strong friendship with the universe. This connection has allowed me to see myself in everyone I’ve met along my journey and to feel at home no matter how unfamiliar the element.

From being away, I’ve also developed my overall sense of appreciation and gratitude for my family, loved ones, humanity, and the process of life.

*How would you recommend someone getting started with an intuitive traveling journey?

To anyone that would like to start an intuitive traveling journey– megan butterflyyou must own your power and believe that it is completely in your own hands to create and manifest the journey of your dreams. Believing that it is possible, it is in your power and creating the space in your life for a life-changing journey are huge factors in manifesting an epic trip.

I would like to note to remember to have fun and to play around with this process as much as possible, for instance, look at a map, choose the place of your dreams, announce to the universe when you will be going and then create the space in your life for it to manifest, then watch the way things magically unfold. I have watched the most beautiful manifestations materialized by using this exact method.

*What are some of the magical ways the Universe has provided for you/surprised you on your travels?

I have encountered many magical people and experienced many miracles throughout my journeys. The one that stands out to me the most actually occurred early on in my travels, it was my third day in Homer, Alaska.

I met a super kindred spirit, a man in his 70′s named Chris at a little restaurant called the Cosmic Cafe (ha! the beautiful irony of that name in retrospect…) and I began speaking to him excitedly about my new adventure. After connecting over the beauty of the universe for some time he told me that the universe had been incredibly generous to him throughout his years and that he had been waiting for the opportunity to give back in some way.

He asked me to please accept a gift from him, I agreed to be open to receiving. It turned out that the gift was a car (he happened to have a few extra that sat unused in his garage) he excitedly insisted that he didn’t want anything in return. The next day we met at the DMV and he signed the title over, it was an absolute miracle!

Up until that point I had planned on hitchhiking as my main mode of transportation but the car changed everything and opened up many doors for more magic down the road

*How can people hear more about your travels?

I intend on starting a blog (or possibly a youtube vlog) for my megan natureupcoming trip to Peru. I will be working with Ayahuasca in the Amazon jungle, so I’m excited to share my experiences. I will most likely use facebook as my main mode for updates regarding the status of my blog, as well as to regularly post photos and status updates on my trip.

*What is your number one tip for living an enchanted life?

Live through the heart, align with your purpose, follow your bliss, and trust in the Universe.

Energetic Hygeine

7 Days to Healthier Balance and Greater Abundance through Shadow Integration
An Online Group Course

with Charis Melina Brown and Amanda Flaker

March 23 – 30, 2014

What is Energetic Hygiene? Picture

You know those people who seem perfectly nice and you feel as if you should be just fine spending time with them, and yet you do not like interacting with them and feel yucky or drained afterward? Even if they may love being around you?
The reason that you feel icky is that these folks are not watching their energetic hygiene. This is a skill not taught in our culture – as long as we smile, talk politely, and remain within the cultural balance taught in the physical world, energetic bullying, messiness, projection, and pulling is not mentioned nor is it brought consciously into balance by most people in our world.
Not only will this course address how to deal with others with sub-par energetic hygiene, it will help us to make sure our OWN auras are shiny, bright, and integrated harmoniously with those around us. We have all had our moments of being “energetically stinky” and this course is designed to help you become conscious of what you are participating in energetically at all times, so you can direct what you are giving and receiving with full lucidity.

The truth is that our world is NOT always butterflies Pictureand rainbows.
Each of us has a shadow side that, when not integrated, can sabotage our efforts at balance, joy, and prosperity.
When integrated, however, these shadow aspects simply become more notes in the harmonic chord that each of our presences on this planet create, allowing us to heal ourselves and those around us with our clarity, love, understanding, compassion, and the way we embrace our own unique power and responsibility here.
A taste of the course:
Day 1: The Importance of Owning and Honoring Your Inner Shade…
Day 3: Allowing Our Power to be Perceived…

Enrollment in the course includes a free garnet amulet necklace.

A huge part of the course will be in charging this stone with intentions (matching its natural clarification and transmutation properties) that align with course objectives. 

This work is real and intense – and the crystal will hold the vibrations of what we do here, assisting you in continued integration indefinitely after the course has come to an end.

Necklaces will be shipped out just before class begins, so we can all charge them together. :)

Rebbl Tonic Elixir: A Powerful Adaptogenic experience!

feature photo

It’s one of my new favorite drinks. Rebbl’s Forest Berry organic tonic elixir is deliciously complex in flavor, potent in synergy, and provides just the right amount of energy boost for your day, without the crash of most caffeine enriched drinks.

Tonic elixirs are one of my favorite types of drinks to experiment with. Their adaptogenic properties provide a powerful experience for the body, mind, and soul. And I must say, if you live in a state (like Washington or Colorado) where other expansion herbs are legal (like cannabis), the two combined make the most exquisitely sacred spiritual experience – highly beneficial for higher meditative states of consciousness (in my personal experience).

Here are some fun facts about Rebbl (taken from their website):

ADAPTOGENS : Higher Herbal Intelligence

Every REBBL tonic is formulated as a celebration of the finest, world-class adaptogenic herbs.

Adaptogens, a very special class of herbal compounds, are among the most prized health promoting substances known to man. Famed for normalizing the body, gently bringing it back to homeostasis, adaptogens appear to target and correct what’s out of balance. Only a handful of these unique supertonic herbs exist and we are dedicated to bringing you the best.

Some of the benefits attributed to adaptogens:

  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Improve focus & attention span
  • Balance appetite and mood
  • Accelerate physical recovery
  • Decrease anxiety and tension
  • Increase long-term endurance
  • Increase protection to the vital organs

Adaptogens promote general wellness through complex biological processes. Sometime referred to as dual-directional herbs, adaptogens can promote homeostasis when important body systems (like the immune system) are out of balance. These special herbs can be taken daily as they have both an immediate and cumulative long-term effect. It’s the oldest and newest wellness science – a higher herbal intelligence.

Rebbl offers two other tonic elixirs besides the Forest Berry — they’re next on my list to try:

Empowering the Sacral Chakra Online Class

cropped-chakra-center2.jpg

**Registration Now Closed**

In the class we will focus on:

*Deleting shame/guilt programs stored in our Sacral Chakra

*Acknowledging and soothing sexual trauma

*Learning how to ignite our passions/dreams/desires

*How to move our passions into a 3rd dimensional experience (without guilt!)

*Transmuting negative energy in the sacral chakra to a more positive flow/experience with the world

*Allowing ourselves to luxuriate in the senses (through essential oils, amazing food, intoxicating art, epic experiences with nature — anything and everything that makes us feel ALIVE!)

In this intensive 11 day online course for women, we will be focusing on clearing, healing, and releasing the creative/sexual energy in the 2nd chakra.

Almost every women I interact with in my intuitive work have blockages/trauma in their Sacral Chakra. The social and religious conditioning throughout history has done untold damage not only to female sexuality, but to our experience with the physical world around us.

We’ve been told that to take care of ourselves, to have desires, or to enjoy life (or the “flesh”) is to be selfish or unspiritual. We’ve been told our sexuality is dangerous.

Most of us have a belief that the material is bad — that there is lack — not enough to go around for everyone and therefore to enjoy life is to take from someone’s potential happiness. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

I’ve found that one of the quickest ways to heal and empower the Sacral Chakra is to fall in love with yourself, with life — with creation, with our creative/sensual power, and with enjoying and luxuriating in the beauty of our five senses.

It’s about understanding that Source is limitless, and therefore the amount of love and creation we can experience in this world is limitless too.

Most of the healing work done in the spiritual community focuses our energy on the top chakras, and although these are important aspects to heal/activate, prayer/mediation/extra sensory awareness usually do little to help dissolve the guilt and shame lodged in our Sacral Chakras.

In my own experience healing my sacral chakra, I’ve had to learn it’s not only okay to enjoy this physical dimension, it is ESSENTIAL to expansion and thriving.

Most of us carry untold amounts  guilt and shame when it comes to allowing ourselves to enjoy our senses and our physical bodies. We’ve been taught there are “spiritual” ways to live (which usually involve abstaining from anything “pleasurable”) and that there are “fleshly” (or sinful) ways of experiencing the world (typically anything involving desire).

This class is going to flip that concept on its head. It’s about finding the beauty/divine in EVERY experience. It’s learning how to transmute the negative energy in our sacral chakras to a divine experience of our lives as we interact with the pleasures of the physical dimension.

It’s about enjoying the physical world. All of it.

 

It is through the energy of our sacral chakras that we are going to bring heaven to earth. And I’m here to tell you its okay to enjoy your life with your five senses. In fact, it’s one of the greatest experiences of “spirituality” in these physical bodies!

There is nothing less spiritual about the physical senses than our extrasensory ones. Allow yourself to enjoy both! Live with passion! That is truly how we will bring heaven on earth.

TO REGISTER for the class, fill out the form below and complete your purchase through Paypal. The entirety of the class will be held in a private Facebook forum. I will post daily videos/workshop content, as well as be available daily to answer any questions you may have. The forum format also gives participants the opportunity to interact with each other, have personal access to me, and even post video responses to the material (should you wish to do so).

Enchantment Through Art: An Interview with Akiane Kramarik

cropped-chakra-center2.jpg

The first time I came across Akiane’s work I was in a “New Age” book store in Portland, Oregon. The fact that I was there in the first place was ironic, because I had grown-up Christian and built a pretty strong resistance around myself to ideas outside my faith.

But it was time to explore what was out there. I was in the middle of my own existential crisis and found no relief within the box of my upbringing.

As a child I often heard voices. I couldn’t see the world they whispered from, but I sensed and felt their dimension around me. At times it felt dark and scary, but mostly it held an enchantment of comfort and magic that gave me a sense of being “home.” Curious, I thought, the way the adults move and slipped through this unseen world with no mention of its existence.

Eventually I found a way to curve my way through this invisible realm too. The 3rd dimension has a way of forcing our attention to see only what it wants us to see. We forget we have a choice. Magic is lost to us.

Lost. That’s the overwhelming feeling I had as I timidly flipped through books in this store that, though I had been warned was “dangerous,” I felt as if the pages here contained the sense of mystery and wonder I had lost as I child — if there was any magic left in the world all.

That’s when I looked-up and saw the face of Jesus looking at me from the cover of Akiana’s book. It was a painting she had done herself at the age of 8, and it captivated me.

Before I knew what happened I was devouring every page — her poetry brought back the rhythm of the world I felt and heard as a child. Her paintings were a photo album of a home I had forgotten. Even her face looked familiar — like a distant cousin I hadn’t seen since childhood games.

Like me, Akiane had experienced the magic that weaves in-and-out of our world since a very young age. Her gift was painting — a powerful medium for revealing the beauty through her ability to portray the visible and invisible realms with emotion and dream-like realism.

I’ve been a fan of Akiana’s work ever since that day. The worlds she paints were an activation for me. There is a beauty she brings to life to remind us there is MORE — so much more magic than we allow ourselves to experience. It’s right here — waiting for us to see.

An excerpt from Akiane’s website defines the power of her vision beautifully:

“Most of her priceless masterpieces carry a mysterious result: she often uses an unidentified golden dust substance that once ‘materialized’ in front of her eyes. Her painting “Innocence” is a hologram: from the front the lady appearing young and serene, but from the side she is all in tears and wrinkles.

Akiane believes that people in the future will be able to study her originals with special microscopes revealing quantum relationships of the deepest colors and stories in her works. She has even been able to document her own masterpieces from beginning to end on film for educational purposes, and remains always open for many scientific and artistic collaborations.”

As Chakra Center continues to grow and encompass more magic, I thought it only fitting that I ask one of the most enchanting artist I know to stop by and share some of her quantum vision with us.

Enjoy!

Through your work you lend a sense of magic and mystery to the world – a feeling that everything has a purpose and is divinely inspired. How do you experience magic in your own life?

It’s not something you can teach, it’s something that you learn through experience.

Every day I see ordinary things in this extraordinary world, and I see extraordinary things in this ordinary world. To be able to create cinematic-like experience from a simple sound, object, color, emotion or a scenery takes patience and confidence.

Your newer paintings have a deep sense of wisdom, dimensions, and other worlds. What is your perspective on the relevance of other worlds/dimensions to our own?

What we all share is “awareness”. We are in a invisible intertwined web, the more we move there, the more we get to experience a wider range of relationships .

I hope my art would be part of that web. When people get the chance to see other worlds, I hope, they trust their own compass to navigate through true reality…

You’re a big advocate of using creativity as a means to tap into our true essence and see the world through a more magical, divine perspective. What are your tips on how people can tap into that creative world inside of them?

Experiment with various art forms. Try doing what people don’t expect. Going against the tide is one of the many hurdles a creative person must take. Mix things, put them upside down, hang them, combine them. If for the first week after all your energy is put in a project you do not feel any accomplishment, then it is a sign to start again something more innovative.

Some of your paintings have a very “extra-terrestrial” feel to them. What are your thoughts on ETs/life on other planets and their role in the co-creation of the multi-verses and our own universe?

I believe in my early experiences I came across multiple encounters. Throughout our history MANY other beings have lived on this earth side-by-side with the human race. There is definitely a purpose for so many trillions of beings to co-exist. Just look within our own bodies: there is a discovery every week about another living organism that has lived inside us without our knowledge.

Describe what inspiration feels like to you…

Inspiration and epiphanies are experienced when mind and heart meet.

What would you tell someone who wants to follow their joy path, but has no idea where to begin?

Get immersed in an environment that matters to you. If it’s in teaching, then volunteer at a school and get a first hand experience. If it’s in sculpting, research nearby local sculptors’s guild and visit their studios. If it’s in film-making, find a group on the internet like a weekly meet-up, invest in a camera and start with small projects with your family and friends and etc…

You’ve said in interviews that you believe, eventually, the human race will become vegan and that eating a plant based diet lends to a higher frequency of love on the planet. Could you share a bit about your experience going vegan and how it has changed your life/perspective? 

Yes, in the future we will find a loophole in our biological system that will allow us to change our molecular programming. A few years ago I did experiment with veganism. As I matured and researched more, I understood that all living things have emotions and capacity to experience fear and pain. In the future, I believe we will naturally find a better treasure for our energy resources, so no flora or fauna would suffer because of our existence.

We do not contribute to the nature’s system, we intervene like parasites. I am still 60% vegan, I am an advocate for preserving lives. And I thank everything that sustains me. Praying before eating is a thanksgiving time: someone has died so I could live.

What’s your number one tip for living an enchanted life?

Spend time with your friends and family , watch comedy , make comedy, and once in a while do something unexpected…

Flash Questions:

Private concert, who’s playing? Tony Bennett, Chris Botti or Joe Hisaishi.

Your stranded on a deserted island with only one book. What would it be? Ilia’s, my little brother’s book “The Future Never Gives Up”.

Favorite color? Manganese blue.

Living or dead, who would you like to have dinner with?

My grandparents.

Ocean or mountains? Oceans, without a doubt!

Empathic Entanglement

cropped-chakra-center2.jpgWhat happens when empaths unite to learn from each other/empower their abilities? Major expansion! I am simply blown away by the amount of information/growth I’ve experienced in the “Empowering Empathic Abilities” online class and challenge.

So as to not leave anyone out, I thought I’d send some of the most recent audios. Feel free to leave your feedback/comments/impressions. It’s amazing what happens when empaths unite and share their experiences. Empowerment is an understatement! I’ve learned so much from everyone in the class and am reminded how connecting with others makes me 100 times stronger! Talk about stretching!

Thank you to everyone who has participated this far! So much more to come!

And for those of you interested in The Art of Empathic Shapeshifting, the online class starts on the 21st (Friday)! We’d love to have you!

Attention Light Workers: You have a Shadow (and it’s GOOD)!

cropped-chakra-center2.jpg

In many religious and ‘spiritual’ circles, emotions are often viewed as an enemy to be reckoned with, Shadows are feared, and egos are to be slain. To be ‘emotional’ is to be weak and to be weak is to be undeserving. To have darkness is to be devoid of Light. To enjoy the unique perspective of our ego, is to be without empathy.

Suppressing these fundamental aspects of our humanity is a detrimental belief system to ascribe to. At its core, the good vs. bad mentality teaches us that being human is somehow wrong. When we put ourselves under this belief system, we have no choice but to view our ‘human condition’ as one we must continuously fight.

Downloaded with this program and raised within it, most humans either feel a call to raise up arms and slay the human aspects of our experience (anything pertaining to the ‘flesh’) or simply surrender to their “base instincts” and choose to luxuriate in them. Hence the human drama as it has been from the beginning: fight against your flesh or succumb to its debauchery. Those are our options.

The ones who choose to “fight the good fight” arm themselves with good intentions, moral behavior, and beams of light as they proceed into the “darkness” to slay anything (and any one) that would dare cause them to experience contrast. The term “light worker” itself comes from this energy, and many of us who feel drawn to this “higher calling” often feel separate from the rest of humanity, as if we are on a sacred mission to save the world. The very words themselves (“light worker”/ “higher calling”) suggests there are those with a “lower call”/less important life path, or imply we have no darkness – a belief that is in fact, destructive. We don’t realize we ourselves often strengthen the “darkness” by our resistance of it.

The energy imbued in the very spiritual language we use (and the hierarchy we place ourselves in) makes us feel we must belong to a special category of humans and therefore are above feeling/experiencing the challenges every other human faces. As a result, when we go through periods where we don’t feel particularly high vibe, wise, spiritual, or ‘moral,’ we feel the need to protect others from our emotions and hide-out in a prayer of self-analysis until we fix the ‘problem.’ Or we simply deny how we feel, suppress our Shadow, and continue acting like the good light worker (or religious person) we feel we should be. We do everything but BE REAL.

Here’s the deal:

*We’re no more special than anyone else on this planet. We don’t need a calling, super human soul path, Star Origin, or Church to justify our existence and make us valuable.

*We all have a Shadow, and contrary to popular negative sentiment toward darkness, the Shadow can be our Greatest Teacher. It’s okay to integrate it. In fact, it’s necessary for true freedom and expansion.

So many “light workers” have been caught-up in the mundane rat race of the Matrix, the battle between good and evil, and the struggle to survive, that we believe the only way to justify our existence is through living a life of perfection, or by ascribing to a path that makes us feel more special, moral, or ‘gifted’ than the rest of humanity. We feel the need to separate from our own Shadow because we’ve come to see humans as weak, stupid, emotional, unwise, ‘sinful,’ and dangerous. The pitfall in this type of thinking is twofold:

*It cuts us off from a fundamental aspect of who we are (regardless of our soul origins, religious beliefs, or spiritual practices, we are here, participating in the human experience as a human and co-creating this reality with everyone else).

*It perpetuates the “us and them” mentality which fuels the illusion of separation.

We are all powerful in our own ways, all weak in our unique wounds/chosen path of expansion, and we have all chosen to come into a holographic dimension that reflects our thoughts/emotions back to us. How we perceive this hologram is only a reflection of US, not of the hologram itself. We see the world not as it truly is, but as WE are.

We can’t hide from ourselves here. Everyone we judge is us. Every experience we have is a reflection of us. Every belief we have will show up in our experience, in the exact vibration in which we believe it can manifest. It’s all us. This dimension is a training ground for our soul’s expansion and our judgments only serve to limit the possibilities of what we experience here. Judgments offer no salvation – regardless of how safe they make us feel.

Ultimately, we are all One, and our experience of the One is unique to our soul’s chosen path. There is no “elite” group (or cursed group), or any group that is more accountable to this hologram than another. We are ALL co-creating this experience, and we are all powerfully fueling this illusion — some of us are just more conscious of it than others.

As we increase our awareness of how and what we are doing with the energy in this dimension, it becomes imperative to continually remind ourselves that every person who comes into our experience IS a mirror of us — of our own thoughts. Any judgment or belief we have about another is ultimately one we have about ourselves. The journey of freedom from the Matrix is an inward path of expansion – not an external battle.

When we experience pain, it is crucial that we ask ourselves “what thought/wound/emotion is this experience reflecting back to me?” Then we listen without judgment. We allow our souls to learn from our experiences — to Shift our perspective. There is freedom in surrender.

Let’s let ourselves off the hook. We don’t need to justify our existence through good works. Freedom won’t come by suppressing the darkness. Salvation from the illusion of separation won’t come by denying our humanity. True release is as simple as shifting our perspectives. Our Shadow has no power over us when we embrace it as the Teacher it is meant to be.

Let’s stop fueling the lie that we need to be set apart from the rest in order to be worthy of love. Let’s free ourselves from the belief that some of us are above humanity. Let’s put down our “light sabers” and choose to radically surrender to unconditional love in EVERY aspect of who we are. Only in this way can be free the pendulum swing of extremes within us.

And so it is with you.

The Art of Empathic Shapeshifting Online Class

The Art of Empathic Shapeshifting Online Class Feb. 24th – March 11th 2014

In this class we will be exploring, in depth, the empathic art of shapeshifting.

What is empathic shapeshifting, you may ask?

It’s the ability to shift your energy/vibration to be the projection of what a person needs (or a fun way of describing how one lowers/raises their vibration to match their environment).

I call it an “art” because like all natural abilities, it must be honed and cultivated to really reveal its true beauty/power.

Most empaths shapeshift unconsciously, but because they’re not aware of what’s taking place, it can cause them to feel alone, unknown, invisible, and unsure of who and what they really are. It can also cause them to jump into other people’s paradigms that aren’t the most beneficial for their growth/expansion.

Learning to actively and consciously shapeshift (and when to turn it off) is crucial to thriving as an empath. Once empaths learn to control this ability and direct their focus, shapeshifting can be quite a fun/unexpected journey into other realms (and much more effective in helping others).

Understanding this ability and how to function in a healthy/balanced energy grid while practicing the art of shapeshifting is what this class is all about.

For those of you have taken my “Empowering Empathic Abilities” online course (or those who are joining in on the 21 Day Empowering Empathic Abilities Challenge), this is a perfect “next step.” But anyone who is interested can take this course. All are welcome!

Decoding the Messages of the Universe

Have you ever turned on the radio and song that speaks directly to your current circumstances just happens to be playing? Do consecutive numbers seem to follow you everywhere you go? Do you ever flip on the TV just in time to hear an inspirational message? Have you ever considered this all might be the way the Universe communicates with you?

Yes! You’re important enough for the Universe to talk to. In fact, purple-passion-heart-loveyou’re so important that Source will move heaven and earth (literally) to get your attention.

Think about it. Spirit is everywhere. Its essence is non-physical but uses the physical world around us to speak. In reality, when Spirit speaks, life is created and propelled forward.

Spirit communicates to us moment by moment through synchronicity, music, numbers, signs, and our own intuition. Often when we don’t pay attention, the messages will get louder – we might get sick (our bodies telling us to slow down because we’ve somehow misses all the 100 ways prior to the illness it tried to tell us the same thing). We may get into a car accident, or have a close call with death. Have you ever considered the possibility that something or someone is trying to get you to look deeper?

You are not alone, and you never have been. Support is with you at all times, asking you to look within and pay attention to the life you have manifested around you. Listen to the message of the skies and trees – the message of numbers and colors.

If you stopped for a moment – just a moment – and listened closely, really looked at the subtle nudges and , what would you hear?

Today I challenge you to listen. Don’t wait for the message to hit blissful isolationyour over the head. Spirit only takes drastic measures when you’re not paying attention. Learn to listen to the signs. Tune into your intuitive nudges. Pay attention to the signs and watch for synchronicity.

You’ll soon understand everything around you contains a sacred letter from the Universe. Everywhere you look is an invitation from the to see further into the mystery of what we’re co-creating with the Source of Life itself. If you observe the web of messages daily weaving around your world, you may just discover how enchanting life really is. And you’ll never feel alone.

Pure magic.

Empathy and Weight Gain

Yes. They are linked.

Most doctors and psychologist focus on the ‘depression’ aspect of uncontrollable weight gain, but the connection with extreme sensitivity to other people’s emotions is often overlooked.

In the “spiritual community” there’s a permeating false idea floating around that to be spiritual means to look like a supermodel. Maybe it’s the frenzy with social media spirituality (who’s the most popular and 100% raw?!), but it seems our societal obsession with perfection has lead us to believe that if we don’t look a certain way, we’re just not spiritual enough (as if women need one more thing to feel guilty about).

Some of the most tuned-in, loving, wise, altruistic people I know carry a few extra pounds. Many of my clients who have extreme empathic/physic abilities almost universally struggle with weight gain and/or health issues. This is due to the way their body translates the energy of others around them.

Often, this over-sensitivity to environment/people stems from a childhood of abuse. In order to compensate for the overhaul of energy felt by those with empathic abilities, their bodies will often carry extra weight as a type of insulation between themselves and others (it’s a form of self- protection).

Even after they’ve worked through their emotional issues/past abuse, many empaths find the extra weight is the last adaptive mechanism remaining with them. Because the excess physical insulation has been so psychologically useful to them in dealing with others’ emotions (and their own), it is often difficult to build the neuropath ways to other soothing forms of self-comfort. Learning to self-sooth is one of the most important healing modalities an empath can learn.

What’s interesting about weight gain caused by empathic abilities, is that often those carrying the extra pounds do not over eat (though some do). Many overweight empaths eat extremely healthy vegan and/or raw food diets. It can be frustrating for these people to lose weight because the issue is emotional/psychological, not an eating obsession or lack of self-control.

The most self-aware empaths are conscious about their body’s tendency to hold on to weight and learn to accept/love themselves as they are. But I find so often that they (women in particular) carry an enormous sense of guilt and shame when it comes to their weight, constantly feeling the need to “fix” themselves. This added stress often leads to additional weight gain.

I personally have dealt with this issue my entire life, often going on extreme (and potentially harmful) deprivation diets in an effort to rid myself of my body’s natural response to processing an overabundance of energy.

Through much therapy and emotional awareness, I’m learning how to have balance and control over how my empathic abilities affect me, and I find that the more I accept my body as it is, the more grounded and powerful I become.

As I’ve learned to love myself unconditionally, I’ve notice my body holds on to less and less weight, because it feels safe with me. It feels loved. Self loves soothes the body and helps it feel less vulnerable in this chaotic world of emotions.

I will be exploring the topic of weight gain in much more detail in my “Empowering Empathic Abilities” online class, but I wanted to send this out for any of you empaths out there who struggle with your weight and feel guilty because of it. Don’t.

Carrying extra weight does not make you any less spiritual or less valuable than anyone else on the planet. Learn to love and accept yourself. Thank your body for how it protects and takes care of you. I promise it will do wonders in your overall health and sense of well-being!

Self-acceptance is always the first step to self-love (which is the ultimate state of enlightenment).

Much love, family!

How to Bend Time

I’m experimenting with bending time.

Have you ever tried it before? I find that consciously recognizing  bending time3time is an illusion, setting an intention, and using visualization tips to break linear constructs and ride the curve of energy, works wonders for speeding up or slowing down time to fit your needs.

This concept is nothing new or special. It’s simply an awareness of higher science. Time does not exist. It never has. But the illusion of time does. Here is an excerpt from The Guardian about Einstein’s theory of time/space reality:

The theory explained

“When Einstein wrote his general theory of relativity in 1915, he found a new way to describe gravity. It was not a force, as Sir Isaac Newton had supposed, but a consequence of the distortion of space and time, conceived together in his theory as ‘space-time’. Any object distorts the fabric of space-time and the bigger it is, the greater the effect.

Just as a bowling ball placed on a trampoline stretches the fabric gravity-bending-space-time-75157774825_xlargeand causes it to sag, so planets and stars warp space-time – a phenomenon known as the ‘geodetic effect’. A marble moving along the trampoline will be drawn inexorably towards the ball.

Thus the planets orbiting the Sun are not being pulled by the Sun; they are following the curved space-time deformation caused by the Sun. The reason the planets never fall into the Sun is because of the speed at which they are travelling.

According to the theory, matter and energy distort space-time, curving it around themselves. ‘Frame dragging’ theoretically occurs when the rotation of a large body ‘twists’ nearby space and time. It is this second part of Einstein’s theory that the Nasa mission has yet to corroborate.”

Einstein was right: space and time bend. Taking this concept once step further, you can practice bending time in your own day-to-day life.

Here are three techniques to help you bend time:

1.Go into deep mediation: People underestimate what they can do in a superconscious state. On the astral plane, time does not exist. It is the perfect place to reassemble events/energy flow in your life. There are many different ways of doing this, but I find deep breath followed by a creative visualization works best.

Many people do this out of body, but you don’t have to actually go out of body to experience the results. Simply create the space in your mind where you can materialize whatever you want, and begin visualizing it as if it is already happened in your life. This jump starts the manifestation process and brings it more quickly into your experience.

For more information on how to have an out of body experience, check-out this video by Teal Scott:

2. Do a 360 degree turn: If your life is going in a direction that doesn’t feel good to you, turn it around – literally. I know this may sound crazy, but it’s worked for me:

*Stand up straight facing one direction (preferably the direction that feels most uncomfortable for you to face).

*Now visualize the direction you want your life to go (the stronger the visualization, the better). Imagine what the new direction would feel like.

*Take 5 deep breaths and turn 360 degrees,counterclockwise.

(Remember, time works on a curve, and so does EVERYTHING in nature. The turn you do is not only symbolic, it is physically turning the energy around your electromagnetic field).

3. Ride the Wave of Inspiration: Perhaps the best technique for stretching time. When you act upon the energy of your inspiration (and ride it to the end of its course) you’ll find you can create two weeks of ‘work’ in a few hours. When you are living in your bliss, time literally stands still (or “curves” to move you along your path in the fastest way possible!). Acting upon your inspiration is the most powerful way to create.

Abraham-Hicks offers powerful insight on how to do this:
