A Beautiful Woman

il_340x270.589278134_sbufOften, while giving an intuitive reading for someone a message will come through that is meant for more than just the client.  The message that came through this day was meant for every woman on the planet.  The Goddess came through and this is what she said:

Every time you say something negative about another woman you are saying that same thing about yourself.  Every time you say something negative about another woman it affects every woman on the planet.  Every negative thought about your self affects every woman every where.

In today’s society, we are programmed to believe that we are not good enough.  Our standard of beauty is skewed by the corporations who want our money.  Unfortunately, marketing campaigns set up this unrealistic standard and then hones in on that which makes us less than the ideal.  A very clever ruse to keep us purchasing products and enslaved in negativity.

In recent months I have seen a change.  Yet, there is a long way to go.  Aerie (lingerie company) is using real women’s bodies in their Instagram campaign.  More and more celebrities are eschewing being photo shopped.  A revolution is beginning and women are at the forefront.  It is only we who can change the mindset of the masses about what beauty is.  It begins by changing our own minds first.  Loving ourselves is a process, an unfolding, and a knowing that we are more than what others think of us.

When you look in the mirror what do you say to yourself?  Can you begin to see what is beautiful about you instead of what you think of as flawed?  This has been my process of discovery too.  I, like so many women, have had to de-program myself and I am not yet completely free.  I use that word very intentionally.  The word program means:  to cause to absorb or incorporate so as to produce a specific response or reaction. 

We have bought into the program hook, line and sinker.  Only we can pull ourselves out of the depths of self-loathing that is our common thinking.  How do we do this?  By practicing self-love.  Easier said than done, I know.  That is why I use the word practice.  This is not something you do once or twice and you magically love and accept yourself.  This is a daily commitment to you.

This change can be hard as we are barraged by negative messages on an ongoing basis.  We hear these messages from our movies, our magazines, our men and even other women.  We need to stand strong if we are going to change our world.  We need to start recognizing our original and unique beauty.  Only we can define that for ourselves.  And, once we do, we need to show it to the world with pride in our sense of self.  We teach people how to define us.  From this moment forth write a new definition of who you are and fall in love with your beautiful self.

I Am So Much More Than Enough

11659391_10206554834805373_3697776803245896396_nOn July 20th I turned 50.  Believe it or not I have waited in anticipation for this day for the past year.  I awoke my birthday morning and I knew everything had changed.  I am not sure I can even explain how and I certainly don’t know why this change came to be.  I just suddenly knew that I had arrived!  I knew that I no longer had to live my life for anyone other than myself.  Its as if a switch was flipped on and I could finally. . . be.

I now have permission to:

  • live the life I envision
  • relax
  • not concern myself with what other people think of me
  • nap . . . often and without guilt
  • appreciate my curves
  • say no
  • make mistakes
  • play
  • laugh
  • dance

You see, I have always put pressure on myself.  I have never felt I was doing enough, being enough, healed enough, spiritual enough, fit enough, etc.  You name it and I wasn’t enough.  The last few days my “not enough” voice has disappeared.  In her place there is a new voice.  She says I am beautiful.  She says I carry out exactly what I need to when I need to.  She says I am powerful and capable.  She says I am so much more than enough. . .

Again, I’m not sure why this happened exactly on my 50th birthday.  It does make sense why I have felt anticipation for my birthday’s arrival this past year.  Who wouldn’t want to let go of “not enough”? Maybe my soul programmed me to let go when I turned 50.  Who knows?  I just know I could weep with joy with the freedom I feel as a result.

I know I am moving forward into the best time of my life.  I can’t wait to see where my adventures brings me.

Repairing My Net

Image63The Great Mother ever so gently pulled me out of slumber this morning with her rumbling growls and rain softly beating against my window.  Dark rainy days cause me to get quiet and go within.  The urgency to move isn’t there in the same way as when the sun shines bright.

I make myself a cup of tea and the writing muse strikes me.  She urges me two reflect on my life and the joys that emanate from my heart.

My reflections bring me to the work I have chosen this time around.  Being self-employed can be a a nerve wracking existence for those of us who live this way. Some weeks are so busy with clients that my head is spinning.  The next week might not have any clients scheduled at all.   As I have been self-employed for 23 years I have come to understand the ebb and flow of my business.

The weeks I am busy I simply hold on and enjoy the ride!  The weeks where no clients are scheduled I repair nets.  I once read in the Rune Book by Ralph Blum that when fishermen are unable to go out to sea they repair nets.   That analogy has stayed with me over the years.  Now, instead of moving into fear that nothing is happening in my business I repair nets.  What that looks like for me is I take care of the details of my life that may get pushed off to the wayside when I’m busy.  I update my website, I write, I paint, I update my accounting records (I wish!).  Riding the ebbs and flows of my life has become a peaceful existence now rather than a fear based one.  I see myself on top of those waves instead of floundering in their depths.

Are their nets in need of repair in your life?  What have you pushed off for a rainy day . . .

How To Quickly Tap Into Your Intuition

imagesI’ve heard it time and time again, from my guides, that is.

To quiet the mind lengthen the breath.  

Being a yogi and a psychic you would think I would get this by now.  But no, I need reminders too.  Before I begin my yoga practice or am in a healing session with a client, I begin to breathe.  The breath slows my mind down and connects me to Source.  It is from there I can listen for the messages from my soul.

Here is a brief primer on how to lengthen your breath so you can hear your intuition.

Before you begin this technique write out/or hold a question in your mind you are needing more clarity on.  Then let us begin . . .

Close your eyes and lengthen your spine. 

Become aware of  your sitting bones if on your bum or your feet if standing.  Bringing attention to these areas helps you become more grounded and present in your body. 

Begin by taking long, slow deep breaths in through the nose and out through the nose.  Do this for several breaths

Become aware of the beat of your heart. 

As you inhale count four beats of your heart.  As you exhale count 5 beats.  Continue this cycle for several breaths. 

Next, Inhale for 5 beats of your heart and exhale for 6 beats.  Continue this cycle for several breaths. You can add more heart beats as you are comfortable.  Do this for as long as you like.

Open your eyes. 

Notice how you feel more grounded and centered in your whole being after breathing this way.  Now you can ask your questions of your intuition.  You may have already received the answer on the breath.  If you have not received clarity to your question allow your intuition to speak to you over the next few hours or even days.  Trust that the answers will come . . .

Fear: The Master of Misdirection

images
The Scream by Edvard Munch

Originally posted back in March to my now defunct Yogagirl’s blog site.

Stillness is hard.

Stillness is surrender.

Stillness means I have to trust.  Something.

I am writing this in hopes to get insights into the art of stillness.  I’m not very good at stillness.  I am a mover by nature.  I move my body.  I move my mind.  Movement keeps me safe.  Or so I have always thought.

This morning, as I was writing in my journal, I was given a football metaphor by my IGS (Internal Guidance System).  The metaphor is this:  I am the quarterback.  I am the quarterback who never passes the ball.  I look down field and I see receivers but I don’t trust them to catch the ball.  I am constantly in a state of feeling like I’m about to be sacked (anxiety).  For the life of me I can not release the ball.

I move on to other thoughts in my journal and then out of the blue it hits me.  I can pass the ball to my spirit.  That part of me knows more than I do.  In my mind I pass the ball to my spirit.  O.K.  I’ve let go of the ball.  I can move on with my day.

I get on my yoga mat and there is an unusual amount of stiffness in the backs of my legs.  Intuitively I know this is fear I am holding in my first chakra.  On an emotional level the first chakra represents safety and security.  I don’t feel safe so I hold a lot of tension in the backs of my legs.

I find my quiet place and my IGS tells me to be still today.  More anxiety comes up.  I can’t be still.  I can’t do NOTHING! If I do nothing then nothing will happen. “I CAN”T DO NOTHING!” the voice in my head cries louder.  I begin to panic.  I start to breath deeply as the fear grows stronger.  Fear tells me it is keeping me safe by keeping me busy.  I know this for a lie but it is how I have survived these past 50 years.  I am afraid to let go.  If I let go I die.  Surrender = death.

I know in my heart that I will be safe if I surrender.  Yet the old patterns cling tightly to my body.  There has been a lot of inflammation in my body for the past several days.  My IGS told me it was fear.  The wise part of myself hears the truth in this.   Fear tells me it is something in my diet.  “It must be the sugar you ate in the chocolate covered almonds last night.”  Fear always tries to misdirect me from my truth.  Fear is the master of misdirection.

I come back to center through my breath.  Stillness is in the breath.  I ask myself what do I have to lose if I am still?  I have the courage to find out.  I will let you know . . .

I’m Not Crazy. I’m Psychic.

51sbdxedoll-_sx355_Often times being a psychic is risky business.  You get information out of the blue and you have to make a decision whether or not to act on it.  Recently I had a “visitation” from a friend of mine that had passed on many years ago.  She wanted me to contact her son with a message.  I haven’t talked to her son in more than 15 years.  I didn’t even know how to get a hold of him.

I reached out to a mutual friend and he tracked down the son.  When my friend told the son about my visitation from his mother he was happy to hear from him but didn’t feel the need to connect with me about the message from his mother.

I do not know what this was all for.  Maybe it was for the mutual friend and the son to reconnect.  Maybe it was for me to reconnect with someone who I haven’t talked to myself in a long time.  Maybe the son will feel the love of his mother and that is enough.  I may never know the real purpose of this encounter.  I know I had to see it through to the end.  I also know I feel a responsibility to my gift and to those who connect with me from the other side.

How I Became a Psychic: Part 3

Holy ManRead Part 1 Here

Read Part 2 Here

I had started working with my psychic friend Cheryl.  She had monthly circles where people would come together and explore and grow their budding intuitive gifts.  I remember speaking in tongues during one of our sessions and she suggested that I tune into the language to find out if there was more going on than just speaking a strange language.

I did this by taking long walks in the woods by my apartment building.  Nature has always had a calming effect on me and being surrounded by trees was an easy way for me to meditate and go within.  During these nature sessions I would  begin to see images of an old Native American Holy Man in my minds eye.  I started to sense that he was my Spirit Guide and the strange language was coming from him.  After several attempts of trying out different names to call him “Grandfather” resonated deep within me.  It was the name that felt right.

After connecting with his name I began to have conversations asking about our relationship.  He told me that we had several past lives together and that this lifetime he came to help me become who I truly am.  It took a long time before I could fully understand and interpret what he was saying.  He began by sending me images that the words reflected.  From there I was able to interpret the spirit language into messages for myself and others.

My Spirit Guide Grandfather has helped me during my healing sessions with clients for many years now.  He will often give insight into a situation that I am unable to see clearly.  I have come full circle with the work that began with Cheryl B. many years ago.  I now have psychic circles to help others explore their gifts.  You can find more about these circles here.

I have enjoyed sharing my story with you as it has reminded me of the incredible journey I have been on.  Please feel free to connect with me if you would like your own session with Grandfather.  We would be happy to help you in becoming who you truly are.  You can find me here.

Here is an example of me channeling my Spirit Guide Grandfather.  Enjoy!

How I Became A Psychic: Part 2

th-1Read Part I here.
It began by seeing things out of the corner of my eye.  This journey into the psychic realms.  Things I couldn’t really even explain.  One of the beings I saw was something straight out of Harry Potter.  He looked exactly like the house elves in the books.  Of course, this is all hindsight now.  The books weren’t even published when all this was occurring.  I just remember he was small and gnome like and didn’t pay me the time of day as he walked through my apartment and disappeared through the wall on the other side of the room.  This is the point in the narrative where you call in the people with the white coats and straight jackets.  You have to remember before my de-cording session with Cheryl (see part I) none of these things that I describe here had ever happened to me before.  This was only the beginning.

I call these experiences a baptism by fire because I had to learn how to use my gifts in a hurry.  I became overwhelmed with psychic activity and I could barely keep up.  At that time in my life I was processing a lot of anger. Anger attracts negative entities like nobodies business!  I had recently become a single parent to my boy who wasn’t even one year old yet.  I had no job and no prospects and living in section 8 housing.  I recently broke up with my sons father who had cheated on me with my best friend.  Needless to say I was a bit pissed off.

I started to have all these thoughts that didn’t even sound like me.  I would get this peculiar ache in my upper back that felt like something was hanging on it.  There was.  My anger had attracted spirit attachments.  Spirit attachments are earth-bound entities that for what ever reason have not passed into the light.  They tend to be drawn to like energy.  In my case it was anger that drew them to me.  They connect through the Auric field and interfere with your sleep and the way you think.

My clue that something was amiss were my thoughts no longer felt or sounded like my own.  Once I learned to discern my self from these spirit attachments I could release them.  Unfortunately, due to the fact that I was still a pissed off person they kept hitching on to me for a ride.  It wasn’t until I moved from that apartment to a small town that all the spirit activity quieted down.  But until then I had a lot to learn . . .
