Step Closer to Your Spirit

We are conditioned to live lives disconnected from our own spirits, which is why it is easier to fall into the mental trap of worrying about possible worst-case scenarios than it is to tap into our intuition and create a beautiful reality of our liking for our powerful thoughts to manifest. Our go-to is worry and fear, which is why so many people live in constant states of anxiety. Those emotions are further fed by outside sources and then even further compounded when they become the talking points for connection between people. After all, energy flows to where focus goes, and that which we focus on grows bigger. 

The program is so strong and has been woven into EVERY aspect of our lives that most people feel weird if life is going well for them, they’re not stressed, and/or they’re experiencing massive amounts of joy. I hear so many people talk about the fact that when things are good, they’re always waiting for “the other shoe to drop” ie for something to go wrong. Because life couldn’t possibly just be good for the sake of being good. People can’t possibly exist in a stress-free state when the world is on a lock down. 

Wrong. It is not only possible to stay aligned with our own spirits and therefore in a state of peace regardless of what’s going on in the outside world, but I have personally been experiencing it. The question becomes, how badly do you want peace over connection through misery? How badly do you want alignment over tuning into the mainstream narrative? How are you benefiting from your misalignment? Does it allow you to connect with people who are also misaligned? Do you receive attention when you go on about your stressors and worries to other people? Does it help you avoid fully assessing, receiving clear awareness of, and changing patterns of thought or behavior that aren’t serving you?

Choosing healing over our own comfort isn’t easy. To show up and own the fact that our insides are what are being projected back to us within our own physical reality can be a tough pill to swallow. You see, it’s never been about the other people or the outside situation, and it’s always been about our own beliefs about ourselves and life. I don’t know about you, but my spirit has been pushing me to evolve out of my old fear-based programming, and out of the patterns and cycles that were constantly repeating and holding me back. I didn’t come here to just live the last life over again, and since you’re here, I don’t think you did either. We’re here to push past our own limiting beliefs and have a fully lit up, sovereign experience as spirits having a human experience. We’re here to tap into our limitless nature as we step more fully into our own power as multidimensional, spiritual beings! 

Is it “easier” to keep repeating the same unhealthy thoughts and behaviors over and over again? Yes, sort of. I mean, you do then get to stay in your familiar, albeit sometimes miserable, comfort zone of old habits and old ways of being and thinking. But I’m telling you, there is a life that exists beyond the current bounds of your comfort zone that have to be experienced to be believed. And we’re all capable of living it. Our own inner peace and alignment has to become a priority. Peace has to become more important than comfort, more important than relationships no longer serving you, more important than the dis-ease that you’ve taken on as your identity, and more important than a pandemic. 

One big way to disconnect from our own spirit is to make decisions from a place of fear. When someone in a reading told me that I had been making a lot of decisions from a place of fear, I had a light bulb go off. I had NEVER thought about it like that before. But I could definitely look back and see how I had often chosen which option to pursue, because I was afraid of something. How have you been allowing fear to make your decisions? That awareness alone is what made it possible to see what I had been doing and begin to change it. When faced with decisions, I began to check in to see what option was from a place of fear and which option was from a place of love. I started choosing love. 

We step away from our spirits in many ways. One way is by doing things that we really don’t want to do, or holding ourselves back and not doing things we want to do. That inner knowing you get that something is meant for you is your spirit guiding you towards something in your highest good. Likewise, the pit you feel in your stomach that develops when someone asks you to something that you really don’t want to do is your spirit guiding you away from something not meant for you. It is up to each of us to learn what our spirit’s guidance feels like, so that we can follow it into our own alignment.

I know that times feel tough right now as much of the world is living in lock down, but I am here to remind you of your immense, innate power even in times like these. If you have the power of thought still intact, you have the ability to imagine and therefore create and align with a new reality of your choosing. We must not get lost in the current moment to the point that we limit ourselves for all that can be. We are meant to fully experience and live fully in this life, but if we’re constantly looking to others or to the current state of the outside world for our information of what’s possible, we will never jump off the hamster wheel long enough to begin thriving. Our beliefs are based on the past that we’ve experienced. When we hold strong beliefs about ourselves, the way the world is and the way the world works, we place severe limitations on ourselves and our ability to experience a reality that’s different from the one we’ve “always known.” 

So, I encourage you to start listening to the guidance of your own spirit that comes in the form of your joy, your passion, and your intuition. Start being who you came here to be by showing up fully as your own, unique version of a spirit having a human experience. Don’t shy away from expressing yourself and your truths in whatever form feels right for you. We always have a choice in this life with everything we do, even the thoughts that we’re having. Today, are you going to choose thoughts and actions that free you, cause you peace, and joy, and align you with your own spirit? Or are you going to fall back on your go-to emotions of fear and worry and lack that keep you trapped in an energetic prison where your spirit’s guidance falls on deaf ears? It doesn’t matter what is going on in the outside world, we always have a choice for how we’re choosing to show up and perceive it. A human in alignment with their own spirit is the most powerful force on the planet. Imagine what the world would be like if we all shifted our focus from the outside to our own alignment! The work we each do to connect with our own spirits is immensely powerful. We each experience our own, personally created reality, so it’s always in our best interest to do things to align with our spirit and to the best possible outcomes for our lives. 

My passion is helping connect others to the guidance of their own spirits. I do this through a powerful healing modality called Holographic Kinetics and also through 1:1 mentoring.

I plan to lead retreats in the future, so don’t hesitate to reach out to me if that’s something you’d be interested in.

Observe Not Absorb

Picture from: Quantum World: Awaken Your Mind (FB/IG)

I saw this post come up in my FB feed recently and out of curiosity, I began to read the comments, which I don’t often do. Most people were saying that observing rather than absorbing the energy around them was an impossibility as empaths and “healers”. My intention was to shed some light on the subject to help give people a sense of their power for creating their reality. Humans are quick to label and be fit into boxes with self-limitations. Realizing I fit the description of an “empath” was only the beginning of the truth for me on that subject, not the end. It helped some things about me make more sense, but it hasn’t ultimately defined me. I have learned that I had to grow from that place, vs stay stagnant in the definition of empath. The truth is that we are infinite consciousness in human form and therefore powerful creators of our realities! I decided that it may be helpful to include what I wrote in the comments here, so that the messages can reach more people. I had several people write and ask questions or comment and this is missing their portions, but it is my hope that you’ll still be able to take something useful away from it nonetheless. This information can be helpful for everyone, not just those who identify as being empathic.

“I think people are missing the point. Empaths pick up on energy, but we definitely don’t have to be absorbing it. That’s part of being an empath is learning self-care and boundary setting and realizing our power to NOT be swayed by the energy of the things and people around us by simply stating Observe not absorb. We are all energetic beings who are affected by energy around us. Stating this helps us be an observer of games we walk into without falling into it. This is also an extremely important phrase to say that prevents us from taking on things from other dimensions that wish to control us. I say it to myself before I watch movies and listen to the radio, before going to a bar to dance, before going to public events, or places with group meditations going on. We are living by universal laws, NOT human laws, and this is a phrase that stands to help us all immensely.”

Responding to someone who equated being an empath to HAVING to absorb energy:

“Yes I’m included in that group (empaths), and I have had to learn my own power to find ways to not absorb. It’s not that we have to absorb just because we’re sensitive to energy and absorb naturally. Setting intentions to not absorb and learning how to differentiate our energy from the energy outside of ourselves is key. It’s been a journey to get to where I’m at with it and part of it is knowing I don’t have to absorb if I don’t want to. We think it’s so difficult, but saying ‘observe not absorb as an intention to our own spirit really is powerful. When we make requests to our own spirit, it will rearrange the universe to make things happen. We’ve lost sight of this because people think they need prayers to a god or angels to make things happen. We do not. In fact, that only opens us up to things in other dimensions. Do I transmute energy by being me? Yes. Do I shift energy around me by being in alignment? Yes. Can I get knocked out of balance by another person’s energy? Yes. Does energy of the collective affect me? Yes. But I’m aware now and can recognize it and I know effective ways to not take on energy/interdimensional interferences around me. Empaths need to learn their power. Many have gotten stuck at the discovery that they are extra sensitive and have wrongly, seemingly, assumed the role of a victim because many of us have gone through relationships with narcissists. Our empathy is actually our superpower and can be used in amazing ways when we learn how.”

Responding to someone experiencing a lot of “negative” energy currently:

“There’s a lot coming through for all of us right now as part of the collective to show us things we need to heal at a deeper level. For example lots of childhood wounds have been coming up for me and friends of mine because our spirits are ready for us to heal these things once and for all. Just recognizing the energy and feeling the emotions it brings or saying that you release what isn’t yours helps. When we recognize energy as not being ours, we can ask to not absorb it or to allow it to move through if it needs to and then be released. We never have to cling to energy and try and figure it out with our minds. Sometimes just cultivating that awareness that you are is enough to not have it affect you as much. Feeling negative energy isn’t a problem. It’s when we internalize it that it gives us problems.”

Responding to someone who spoke of light forces and dark forces and the belief that we’re not doing any of this alone (referring to spirit guides etc):

“I have come to realize that all I need is alignment with my own spirit. I do not wish to call on anything from outside of myself because of what I have learned on my journey. I have no doubt that we also have benevolent beings assisting us, but I have come to realize my own power in my alignment that I do not need outside help anymore. I know what you’re saying. Our beliefs sound similar and a bit different which is welcome by me and OK. This is how we expand our consciousness. If you want to know some of what I have learned, feel free to check out the powerful healing modality I’m trained in called Holographic Kinetics based on Dreamtime Healing of the aboriginal people of Australia at www.holographickinetics.com. Many of my views shifted after this training and what I’ve witnessed in my own sessions and my clients’ sessions. I will never pray to gods or guides or angels again, just as I will never practice reiki or any healing where I get the energy from anywhere but my own spirit. When we learn universal laws at work and how interdimensional interferences can get in to control us, we get VERY selective and intentional about everything in our lives. Just as things like religion have tricked us into being controlled, so has the “new age” movement in many ways. People are so quick to still think they need help from outside of themselves when I’ve had the same results with sending only healing energy from my own spirit, and the same results asking my own spirit for guidance as I used to from other sources. If we’re being told we need to rely on ANYTHING from outside of ourselves, we’re being lied to. I appreciate this conversation with you. Thank you for opening this up so much.”

Responding to someone who said they wished they could experience life from my perspective and who asked if I had advice about learning how to not take on other people’s energy:

“I really appreciated this message when I read it earlier. Thank you for being a witness. I wanted to take time to think about how to respond to you. The most basic thing I can say about what I’ve learned is that alignment with our own spirit is the KEY to absolutely everything else. It is also important to learn how to quiet the mind and be an observer of our thoughts. I have spent so much time in alignment now that I know how that feels in my body and mind. For instance, I used to have so many thoughts a day that it was overwhelming at times. Or maybe I didn’t know it was happening but it was affecting me. Now, being mostly in the present moment at any given time, my mind is much quieter. So I can really tell if I’m having a day where my mind is all over the place and feels jumbled. I recognize it and then practice calming it. Same for energy. Really I think being a nurse in the hospital for nearly 5.5 years was my best practice for learning what was mind vs someone else’s. It started to be obvious to me when my mood took a nose dive after giving report to a night nurse who had a lot of negative energy coming from her. The first time it happened, my mood went down and it affected me for the night. Then, I started noticing the pattern and that awareness could then allow me to release that energy I had taken on as not my own to deal with and my mood would shift fairly quickly. Then, the practice became recognizing their energy as it was happening and choosing to not absorb it so then my energy and mood wasn’t affected at all. I just started feeling love towards the person as it was apparent to me that they had something going on in their life. Where I once dreaded giving report to this person, I stopped taking it personally (at first it felt like they didn’t like me at all). Before I left that job, she was one nurse who would always get excited when she saw I was giving her report! We see what we expect to see. If we believe that we’re empaths and in a way victims of taking on energy from around us, then we get stuck in that role. But we don’t have to stay there. I’m still sensitive to energy, like being able to read it and be super aware of it, but I choose to not take it on. Our intentions that we say out loud are extremely powerful. Start by setting the intention to only observe and not absorb anything as you start your day. Set the intention to not take on other people’s energy as you move through your day and tell your spirit to let you know when you’re picking up something from someone else. Or if you notice someone giving off energy you don’t want to take on, then say so in your head as you’re around them. Our thoughts and words are THAT powerful. We don’t need a ritual or a prayer or a crystal to do it because we have our infinite, limitless, powerful spirits to do it for us! In our sovereignty, we hold all the power.”

This isn’t my complete view on these subjects, but this is what came out during the discussion with multiple other people. No subject is black and white, and I remain open to adjusting my perspective with everything I come to learn and experience day by day. I hope that you give yourself and your mind that same freedom. We never have to lock into one way of being, doing, seeing, or believing. We are multidimensional beings who are constantly evolving our consciousness past the boundaries that we functioned within yesterday, or even 10 minutes ago. The more comfortable we get with questioning everything and not holding tight to any belief, the more free we become, and our spirits yearn to be FREE!

Feeling Emotions

I had a friend message me yesterday and feel like maybe their questioning and my perspective might help someone. I appreciate them for starting this conversation with me. Thank you!

Their message to me:

“I don’t understand why I hear people talk about how they don’t want to experience pain sadness or to even cry. Experiencing emotion is how we empathize with others and different dimensions. Someone told me today that crying is the old being lol“

My response:

“It’s because some of us are so incredibly sensitive to the energies around us and for our perceived safety and to get love from our parents, we shut down our feelings as a coping mechanism as children to get through trauma. I had to learn how to feel my feelings in my 30’s after a lifetime of pushing them down because they overwhelmed me so much. I didn’t know how to cope with them. This is the reality for MANY people which is why addiction is so prevalent. It feels safer for people to feel physical pain than to feel their emotions. People are so out of touch with their spirits because the program we’re in seeks to keep us small and disconnected. People are generally trapped in relationships and jobs that are miserable but they don’t see a way out. When we are so out of alignment with our spirit that we’re forcing ourselves to do things we don’t enjoy, the emotions from that are intense. People don’t know what to do with them, so they push them down so they can just live and get by in their lives. Feeling emotions as they come up is something that many of us have had to learn as adults. So yeah, I get it.”

I’ve written a lot more about this topic on my blog HERE in my post titled “Emotions vs Physical Pain”.

It’s important to remember that we are all literally creating our own realities. This is why we can all have such varied experiences even within the same families. No two people experience this life in the same way. I do not know your journey, just as you do not know mine. We can have a lot of similarities, but our responses to situations and the perspective we glean will be completely different. I love when someone takes the time to get to know me and I feel like they really see me fully, but I don’t expect them to understand me anymore, because they are not me. The best thing we can do for each other is to support and encourage each other as we all walk our own, unique paths. There’s no room for judgement in this new energy. It’s time we all leave our preconceived notions about life and each other back in 2019. Grace and love are the new normals.
