Have you noticed a trend in the energy lately? Maybe it's seeing it in your own self-reflection or maybe it's seeing it in other people's behavior, but there is some deep healing around expression going on right now.
Think about this, how many times have you bit your tongue, refrained from saying how you feel, from speaking your truth in order to keep someone else's idea of peace, or allowing someone else's idea of truth speak for you?
In this time of self-reflection and self-expression, we are learning to speak up, speak out, own our voice and use it. This is a time for growing pains, shedding the energies that don't truly align with you. Shifts and change often mean our circle of friends ebb and flow to match your vibrational level. The more you step into your authentic self, the more the world around you begins to change.
To help you through this shift, practice meditating and connecting to Mother Earth. Allow yourself to become more grounded, more centered and focused. This opens you to claim your sovereignty. Own your space, who you are and what you stand for. This is the energy that is being pulled up for expression. The better you can be grounded in who you are, the easier it becomes to witness those times others try to manipulate or silence you to take that space over.
Think about that for a moment. Yes, there are absolutely people that consciously choose to manipulate you, your feelings and try to stuff you down and make you small. As you step into your power you will no longer tolerate such things. You will begin to witness the energy play and see through their manipulation tactics and be able to hold your space and your truth. There's also people that are unaware that they are doing anything wrong, oblivious to the energy at play. They aren't knowingly trying to silence you or keep you small, but they tend to not understand their own behavior. This tends to happen a lot in friend circles. As you continue your self-growth and evolution, not all those around you continue on that same growth pattern. It's like having a conversation but speaking two different languages. This begins to show you who is truly your friend, who sees your heart and is really rooting for you in this lifetime. Those that choose to not respect you or celebrate your growth, well, that's a good sign that it's time to move on and open space up for those that resonate with your new level of being.
Evolution is a natural part of our soul work. Keep moving forward, keep shining and keep making magic happen. The more you step into the truth of your being, the greater you will shine. Here's a quick Root Chakra Tree meditation you can do to help you get grounded. I recommend working with azurite gemstone for protection from others projections and amazonite for the courage to speak your truth.
Sometimes you find yourself in this space of not knowing, just kind of stuck without understanding why. It's like standing at the edge of your path but the fog is so dense you don't know which direction the path is turning. This feeling sucks you into a trap of the mind. It keeps you hanging on, clinging out of fear, causing your energy and vibration to contract, perpetuating this feeling of being stuck. You become disconnected and feel alone, unsure and insecure. Does this sound like something you've experienced?
What do we know about fear?... We know that it creates a contraction in our energetic vibration. Think about a time when things were going great and flowed effortlessly. In those moments your energy is expanded and your vibration is higher, allowing you to attract more positive energy, creating more opportunities to surround you. Now when fear steps in and causes your energy to shrink and your vibration to lower, the doubt creeps in your mind keeping you feeling small and causing you to feel isolated and disconnected, cut off from the flow of effortless energy and instead stuck in this energetic pattern going nowhere. So how do you break this cycle?
Surrender & Elevate
It may feel like the hardest thing to do in this moment when you feel so unsure about what is going on around you. The idea of surrender is a letting go. It is releasing yourself from the trap of the mind. It is recognizing what it is you are clinging to, an outcome or an expectation and letting it go. It is shifting your mindset with intention and inviting larger, expansive energy back into your space. You can only do this when you've made room for it by releasing. Take a break from the mental self-work and practice self-care. Let go of the worry and surrender it to a higher power, by whatever name you know it to be. When you open yourself up to help from Spirit you begin to shift the energetic vibration surrounding you.
As hard as it may be to maintain this level of higher energetic vibration, it is the key to helping you get unstuck. Self-care is truly an act of self-love and when you actively pursue self-love and compassion, your energy will begin to rise. Decide what type of self-care you will commit to practicing to help you get over this feeling and show up for yourself everyday. When you feel like your mind is running away, come back to your heart center, refocus on how to show yourself love and compassion, invite the energy of surrender to release the lower vibration. You have the power to do this. You can dig deep to harness your inner light and move forward.

Often times I come across these beautiful little snippets about healing that are all magical rainbows of light, and I think what the hell am I doing wrong because my healing is everything but rainbows, unicorns and magical glittering fairy dust.
Truth is... healing is messy.
Healing is ugly. It's chaotic. It's dark. It's uncomfortable. Those little magical snippets are glimpses of hope of what comes after the healing process. The revelation of lessons learned and darkness transmuted through a magical, alchemical shift... Yes it's in the darkness the real magic happens.
What's the darkness?... It is the shadow self, the ego side, those negative and uncomfortable things we work through. When we choose to address these feelings, we are energetically diving into the darkness of the shadow self. We allow those messy thoughts and feelings to envelope us. We surrender for a brief period into the dark to truly dig to the roots of the issue. When we find that old wound we inherently bring the light of awareness to it. We change it. We begin that alchemical process of transmutation of darkness into light. It is not that we deny our shadow self, or ignore it, but rather we truly begin to heal it. That, my friends, is the magic. That is spiritual growth and more magical than any unicorn.
If you get stuck in the process of healing or not sure where to begin, schedule a Soul Coaching session with me. Together we will uncover root issues and determine the best healing rituals to help you through your transformational journey of healing and spiritual growth.
Shamanism and Reiki are both powerful healing techniques. Together these healing energies flow seamlessly as you open up to your intuition and tap into your sacred soul for Divine guidance. This work requires an open heart and a clear channel, which encourages practitioners to practice self treatments and continue working on their own spiritual growth. Tapping into this energetic flow daily strengthens your connection and also teaches you through experience. The more work you do the more you learn how to interpret and read energy, understanding the work that needs to be done.
"Shadow work is the path of the heart warrior" ~Carl Jung
In Shamanic Reiki you're working with more then just light energy, as it is taught in traditional Reiki classes. Shamanism is steeped in shadow work, learning how to shift and change darker, negative energies, like an alchemist of energy. Through this process you are able to transmute these areas of energies around clients using a variety of shamanic techniques, like working with spirit allies in the forms of plants, animals, crystals, or guides.
The core concept of shamanism, after stripping away religious and cultural influences, is someone that has the ability to communicate with Spirit, the ability to see past this world and understand the connection of All, of Oneness, to everything all around us, the web of life. Some people see this energy, others feel it or sense it, and some just know. Shamanic Reiki will help you develop your innate gifts through meditation and journeying and self-healing.
The experience you have in a Shamanic Reiki session will depend on your energetic needs at the time of the session. Aura clearing, chakra balancing, soul retrieval, and connecting to spirit guides, are just some of the things you may experience. While a traditional Reiki session is based upon specific hand placements and just channeling Reiki energy, Shamanic Reiki looks deeper into the energy field, recognizing the difference between shadow and light, shifting and changing the energy as needed to create balance, while following intuitive guidance from Spirit.
Sessions are available in person and online, as energy is not limited by space and time, in the same way prayer works beyond space and time. Shamanic Reiki practitioner training retreats are available throughout the year and is also available as an online course, with live video instruction and attunements.
There has been a shift in awareness. Have you felt it? Light is being shed on the areas that need changing. Are you recognizing patterns in your reactions or seeing parts of yourself reflected in the behavior of others? The illumination of these patterns are a sign it's time to release.
Once you become aware of these attachments, you can begin the work of releasing and open up to a new level of consciousness. It is in this space of shedding your old self you are open to receive a deeper level of awareness and being. This is the energy of November.
November being the 11th month, is the master number of healing in numerology. 2017 is a 1 year, the number of becoming more authentic and aligned with your soul. Together the energies facing you this month are working to help you make those final shifts and transformations of 2017. Everything that has been happening this year has been to help align you with your soul-self. The mantra to help you flow this month is:
"I easily release so I may receive"
Begin to release old patterns and expand your thinking and ways of being. New opportunities are waiting, but the only way to see them is through new eyes. Keep moving forward, keep growing and keep shining! Be ready to receive an influx of healing and love this month, as everyday provides an opportunity to release and receive something new.
