Spiritual Curatives For Emotional Distress

[Editor’s note: I originally channeled this message the morning of my Vision Board Workshop on January 3rd. I didn’t share it with anyone, yet I feel very strongly to share it today. I happened to have found it today even though I didn’t open it on my computer…hmm.

In light of the recent events of protests and marches, the intense debates online and in the media, the nauseating news stories of the anger, hatred, fear, vitriol that is being introduced by the racist, sexist, money-driven white supremacists running the White House in America and all the people who find themselves caught and unable to look away, feeling helpless, I needed to teach about something I know on the subject.

This is the broadcast for all self-reflective, sensitive, caring and loving individuals, activists, artists, healers on this path who feel affected by what’s going on in the world in some way, who are caught up in the drama, the internet trolls out there, the general malaise of all their friends and family and want to become aware of their own energy field to be better able to cleanse, heal, and serve. Read on:]

Our purpose is to channel love.

Our body is a vessel for spirit to act out its destiny.

Each one of us is a vessel for our own heart’s spirit, the spirits of many other people around us in our lives, and the spirit of nature.

There is a call to bring our Spirit to become alive again, to refresh our purpose and return to our calling to continue to reform and improve society.

I experience in my practice and in the healing of myself and others that there are certain things you can do to bring Spirit to Body. These things all elicit a palpable feeling state of flow for everyone, some having more of a palpable affect of the feeling state of spirituality in the body than others. As you look over this list, you can perhaps recall a time that you experienced something out of the ordinary yet possessing a certain type of miraculous feeling – a “life is a miracle” feeling where you had new eyes and senses from which to perceive the world, new life, new spirit.   These feeling state awareness come in the form of the following activities/items:

  • Taking a Shower
  • Writing a poem or making art
  • Exercising/Sweating
  • Yoga T’ai Ch’i or Qi Gong
  • Going to the movies or reading a powerful book
  • Doing a breathing technique
  • Praying, going to a temple or house of prayer
  • Using stones, crystals or gems
  • Taking a salt bath
  • Having a conversation with a friend or lover that’s really meaningful
  • Writing in your journal
  • Using sage, incense or a candle for cleansing
  • Meditating
  • Participating in a ritual with a tribe or shaman where there is chanting, singing and sacred music with or without the use of an entheogen
  • Sitar, gong, or singing bowl sound healing
  • Getting body work

 

Getting an acupuncture treatment is among the first and most effective naturally healthy and gentle ways to clear your energy field that I have found for my journey personally. The list above can cure the subtle and denser layers in the physical body, that which would normally disturb our ability to see and perceive life through the eyes of love and infinite possibility.

Our spirit continuously renews in the matter in these ways, and having an unending position of gratitude for it increases its potency even more.

Aura2

In acupuncture I sense people’s energetic availability in the moment and I have a psychic knowing sense of the various things that are bothering them. I can hear their pain, and where there is a need to let go of certain thought form entities of stuck energy that need to be removed and worked out of the density and released.

We all have sticky auras, because we all need other people to help us grow and evolve, and this is part of our purpose to become aware of these things that were once betrayed to us in the matter. 

The negative entities get in to our bodies starting as some experience in our life that never got cleared and kept being added to our thoughts and memories so much so that it began replaying in our reality day to day. As it grew stronger over the months and years it began to become shoulder pain, neck pain, back pain, lower back pain.

It would come into the body or manifest in the body during certain periods of emotional stress and discomfort reminiscent of this initial invasion. Interestingly it wouldn’t show up at other times when things were more calm like they had gotten out of the environment or away from the person which was caustic, or they became distracted and enlivened by something that made them happy (or by doing one of the above things on the list!) either for a small window of time or through an intentional lifestyle change. There was a disconnect to this thought form which made room for new life and new healing and the freedom of their spirit to exist in the world in a new way.

This is what happens from living out in the world and being subject to life as human beings between heaven and earth, light and dark, form and ether. In order to grow and advance and move into uncharted territory in our lives we have to mitigate our energetic body living in the present moment with the inertia of our past.

We have to be willing to do the present moment, mindful energy work that is necessary to take a quantum leap. We must locate spirit in our lives and see spirit in life and feel spirit in our bodies to be able to heal these things. Whether momentarily or for a lifetime  these spiritual beings incorporate in us so we can, as mediums, be able to augment or eliminate them at will to feel more at ease and control in our lives. All of us are masters of our own lives and healers of our own energy, learning quite a lot over our lifetime about ourselves.

I’m seeking to take something esoteric like spirit and spirituality and make it physically understood for people so they can have a sense understanding in their body what this feeling is and why it’s important to pay attention to it.

To talk about addictions briefly

This is a repetitive cycle that is compounded of many different influences, ancestral karma, and hurts over time. The longer something goes unexamined, the more it can grow into our bodies causing pain and causing layers of pain. As we release the layers we spiritually grow and are able to help others release these wounds on an exponential scale which helps the whole world.

Addiction is a disease in the mind that we must cure that has a psychological and bodily response in us, causing us to go on automatic to quell the outside stressor that is coming in. We don’t know what we don’t know until we are placed out of the habit or environment that was keeping us numb to our own wisdom our body constantly communicates to us.

Strong addiction is an endless cycle that keeps repeating as the body starts to get used to the highs and lows from the initial impact(s) considering it a normal bodily state. Scientifically speaking, our body adapts to the radical hormone fluctuations that are propagated through the stressor, along with the substance or emotion that comes as an automatic response.

If it’s not an alcohol or narcotic or some other addiction to things, it’s a love addiction or a drama addiction with social implications where the mind can creates upsets like “I’m not getting enough attention,” “I’m not being shown enough love,” “That person is treating me badly,” to act out old recordings of our past. This invokes a familiar pain which we on a subconscious level attract and need to experience over and over again until we receive the instructions for how to unplug from these drainages in our energy system. This pain is so we can grow and manifest under new paradigms the thoughts and beliefs which are in the alignment of self love and forgiveness, defined by us as the masters of our inner world.

IMG_6258

We can easily react from the position of the innocent children as the victim, yet the call is to accept everything that happened to us and is happening to us not as ‘good’ or ‘bad,’ ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ notions but to realize that somewhere there’s a karmic ballpark where everything that everyone is doing to one another makes sense for the grander plane of the love unfolding in the world.

Practice one of these self care rituals for half an hour every day and listen to how your body feels before and after.

Receiving healing work from a self-cultivated practitioner such as an acupuncturist can help greatly to unravel these patterns so the body can begin to direct us in healthy ways where we have gone astray from listening intuitively within.

We are made of 90% water, with the same organic compounds as other living beings, soil, and the stars in the sky. It is helpful to use substances from nature for healing such as the ocean or the moon can help to bring these emotions and disruptions out of our body. Salt baths, crystals, as I mention, are some of the things that vibrate at a naturally higher frequency. Nature is constantly trying to help us. The more we can align with the cycles and the gifts of the seasons for great health and ease in life.

The goal of all my mentioning this to you is to be in the present moment with total forgiveness, without judging the mystery of the unknown past and future as it presents itself to us.

As human beings forgiveness for the moment is essential for how we choose our perceptions of reality. We have a soul-need to play out the dark and the light forces in the physical time and space with denser and slower energy of the bodily tissues as we move about, interact, and transform our perception of the world. We are subject to the wills of spirit as matter bumping around with other matter.

When we have the power of forgiveness in our heart we are endlessly renewed to be present in the moment and we don’t get stuck in the illusion of the other thing/person outside of ourselves. We can act according to our higher self in the moment because we are not mindlessly acting from some past hurt or sadness, resentment, anger, fear, grief, or even joy or sympathy in our life (the five emotions in Chinese 5-element acupuncture). From a higher place, the moment contains all power to manifest the justice of our soul’s perception.

Consciousness will spread. The Truth can never be hidden. The messages Spirit needs to come through our channel, is what is meant to be alive and embodied for the matter destiny wherein all beings evolve simultaneously.

IMG_4050

Spirit is always guiding us.  They want to be part of this process with us. The closer we come to the present moment, the more we can allow ourselves to observe the illusion.

When we do this we find new feelings of satisfaction in our day to day life, which is what Abraham Hicks, channeled by Esther Hicks, calls “being in the vortex.” This is the augmentation of positive feelings and a sense of devotion to our higher purpose. This is a feeling state of limitless being which is creating opportunities for effortless magnetism and natural abundance to flow to us. With practice we will be able to sustain these periods of flow and abundance for longer and longer periods.  The grace that is given to us will be given in greater amounts as we transmit these acts of grace to other people.

So the time is to raise our consciousness. The time now is to keep cleaning our bodies and our mental of our attitudes and beliefs. Clean the food that comes in our mouth, purify the water, clean the places we sleep and work, the people we let into our sacred space of intimacy and vulnerability. Go with your intuition. Pick your battles. Retreat when necessary, but never give up on being the sensitive being you are. The world needs this sensitivity. We are hear to uplift others and receive the divine blessings which are abundant now.

With Love,

When Your Soul Goes Bump In the Night

As a sensitive Indigo to energy, you may find yourself picking up on various subtle energies especially in the hour(s) and minutes before going to sleep.
 
As we let go and wind down to get ready for the altered state of consciousness in sleep, it’s often the case that we receive the most clear directives, signs and messages from the inner realms of spirit and divine consciousness (encompassing the beings of our higher self, our ancestors, our angels, and spirit guides) as helpers to see our soul and life purpose.
 
In other words, our consciousness begins to tune inwards to itself in the times transitioning into sleep and transitioning out of sleep. This transition is a natural gateway for Spirit and spiritual matters to enter.
 
Of course transitioning out of sleep, we pay attention to the dreams we just dreamt containing prophetic, insightful messages. If not a dream, a revelation or decision made that occurs to us newly, fresh, from a rested mind.
 
Going to bed however, can be a very different story…The forays into the altered state of sleep can be more tumultuous because our minds are naturally more alert in the time of night, which is why I want to write to you if you find yourself having trouble falling asleep…
 
During this window right before drifting off when all the lights are off but I’m not asleep yet is when I am personally most aware of spirits knocking. Literally. Sometimes there are knocks, creaks or other sounds that you just know there’s another entity or being pervading the space. Sometimes it’s a flashing light or you see or sense something. The Sense we have lets us know that we are being visited by the spirits beyond our physical sight in this realm.
 
Sensing this can be a bit freaky and unsettling, making it quite hard to fall asleep, especially if during the day our soul is already going through a period of growth and awakening: we are at the brink of a big life decision or shift or feeling an ongoing situation stirring a new shift in us. (Or if we are sleeping in a new place and the souls there in your new surroundings are curious about you – this happens too!)
 
If you notice this happening, you can have complete control of the situation by having a spiritual conversation with your higher self and with the spiritual entities trying to get contact with you.
 
Before having this conversation (can be inward or aloud) it is nice to create a bubble of protective white light around yourself by closing your eyes and visualizing this in your mind’s eye. For me, this immediately begins to dissipate the discomfort and fear that often comes up. I call on Saint Michael to calm me, and I can immediately feel a sense of protection and safety when I do this. Call on a guide or an angel in this way.
 
Then, surround your whole room and your whole building/house with that white light, forming columns of light at each of the corners of the room and at each of the corners of the house (depending where you sense the energy) reaching down into the center of the earth so that the space is saturated with light, protection, and safety.
 
Once you have done this you can ask the spirits at this time to either “Leave” if it’s freaking you out (you have the say), or to give you any messages you need that pertain to you. Pay attention.
 
If the energy feels or looks cloudy, dark, or otherwise low vibrational in your encounter/sensing state, create in your mind’s eye (from the third eye) a portal of light. Ask the negative spirits to go through this portal. Sometimes these negative energies are attracted to us and follow us around. This is because they need our help to pass through to the other side.
 
To create this portal, you can imagine a candle glowing and then expanding its orb of firelight to be big enough so that the being can enter it and thus pass through to the other side.
 
If the energy feels uplifting, loving, kind, all-knowing and wise, you can continue to draw calming white light around yourself and around the environment to receive the message and the blessing they came to bestow.
 
You can let this being stay and help you with your soul growth by showing you your dreams and communicating/journeying with you in your sleeping (although this doesn’t make for much restful sleep). Or you can ask it to leave you for the night and let you fully fall asleep.
 
Hope this helps!! Pay attention to the signs and always trust yourself with what you sense. Also know you are safe and protected in the name of Love which was created for this physical plane on Earth to exist.
 
Keep going with your Indigo mission, reading the signs, following, receiving your Divine Calling and embracing the changes you need to for your spiritual path and personal growth. What you have is a beautiful and rare gift and a blessing to us all and we need you to be healthy and happy in order to share it with all of us! I am here for you, and many others who feel like you as well.

Calling An Indigo Revolution

IMG_4225
As the world seems to literally be blowing up more and more every day, as the front-page letters in the headlines seem to be growing in size, I am reminded of how important it is for me to stay totally committed to the course of my life plan and mission.
 
When I’m talking about being an INDIGO, and having an INDIGO MISSION, I am talking about being born with extra-sensory abilities to read people and understand them in the workings of the human mind; possessing a highly-attuned perception-meter of the evil-doers, fakers, and cheaters; and working with a deep inner conviction that we have a unique soul-purpose during this lifetime to change the status quo from what it has been.
 
These are the basic three things boiled down of what it means to be born Indigo.
 
Many of us, because of our sensitivity, our unique needs, and our unique path, are out there fighting alone for what we believe in. We are self-starters, artists, and entrepreneurs. We have an affinity for self-expression with social justice.
 
Many of us are going through a lot of life changes, healing, dark passages, and initiations to grow our self-knowledge, to create foundation in our careers, and to find our soul-tribe in the communities we will serve.
 
It’s a very scary time and there is a lot of fear in the world, and this is why we are living here during this time and at the ‘changing of the guard’, changing of the Empire, on so many levels. It’s a time of REVOLUTION and opportunity for all of us!
 
Which is why I am writing you today that every time you see or hear of something mortifying and horrific in the news, it’s because we are being pushed in a time of intense change. THIS IS THE CALLING to come forward with our truth and be the light-workers and revolutionaries we know we are inside.
 
Trust the Voice which is always speaking to you (the repetitive messages, the words which arrive subtly, and are always kind and loving) and take action on your goals today WHAT-EVER they may be, it’s the right thing for you and only you can listen to what is inside.
 
I want you to know today on this Sunday, July 24, 2016, that YOU ARE NOT ALONE and that all of us are in the process of creating this revolution.
 
With our abilities to perceive the current vibes and energies in our own empathic bodies and out in the world, coupled with the tools of social media (which pull strongly from each of our chakra energy centers from the Heart-up), we can no longer afford to think that the micro- actions we take are micro anymore.
 
Anything we do in the name of truth, love, beauty and justice can affect MASSIVE-MEGA change. It takes one thing, one post, one action, one message that can double over into the thousands of millions. Don’t ever doubt yourself for a moment on what you feel you were born to give and the way you were born to give it.
 
Even those of you who think your idea, product, project, music, art, film, voice, skill, collaboration would ever work or ever make a difference… I am telling you: if it’s part of what enhances you on a personal level and as an Indigo out in the world (see above) then it DOES matter and WILL change the world.
 
When it comes from a place of purpose and calling, and is done with a Radically Peaceful Heart to heal generations-old wounds the world has endured, the Indigo WILL overcome! We are together on this!!
 
IT IS A MOVEMENT and whatever you think you are doing or have yet to do, consider this your sign from Facebook, from the Angels, from the Indigo in me Seeing all this, that it is SAFE and NECESSARY to be the person you know you are and to take the action you know you need to take.
 
You never know how the spirit realm is working on us Indigos all in simultaneity and miracles for you await!
 
We are all waiting for your gifts and your heart. DON’T GIVE UP: THE CALL IS NOW.

Two Minutes About Ghosts (by Amy Tan)

“Ghosts are among us. I am one of the 42% of Americans who think so. Then again, even if 100% believe something, that doesn’t make it true, does it? Like people who think they’re superior to others. Or voters who believe their candidate is best. Or those who say an invisible prankster is pounding up the stairs and making the sound of chandeliers crashing onto their bedroom floor. One of my ghosts used to do that. I thought it was my husband, a member of the 58% who did not believe in ghosts. But then he heard the tune of Jeopardy whistled behind his back– off-key, twice, and once when he was naked in the shower. Naked with a ghost! My husband now believes, sort of.
“I bet many of the 58% have never heard a whistling ghost. They think ghosts are merely grief inflated by wishful thinking. Would they change their minds if the ghost named his murderer? One of mine did that, and the murderer was sentenced to life in prison. He also told me I would one day be a writer.

“Defying science and reason, my mother sailed into my bedroom the night after she died, looking like a statically charged hologram of light. I was punched breathless with the strongest emotions I have ever felt and now they are stored in my intuition as a writer. From time to time, she brings me gifts–uncanny coincidences in the form of particular books, photographs, music, paintings, and people–at precisely that moment when I’m flailing in my writing. She helps me observe that happenstance can have meaning, that grief is beautiful, and percentages are nonsense. There are things you feel because they are true. Like love, like loss, like ghosts.”

– from a Chipotle paper bag

Spring Cleaning For the Empath

It goes without saying, being empathic means you feel and experience the world a bit differently that everyone else. Feeling and thinking very deeply about the world in its micro- and macrocosmic layers, noticing signs and people on these inner intuitive levels with the body consciousness is just the baseline awareness for you. That’s why in this transition from winter to spring it’s important to take care of what energies are leaving and what new ones arriving.

In the paragraphs below, whatever resonates with you the most is where you can start on your detox. Feel into your body giving you signs. This is the intuitive part of your body which knows what it needs to help you on your life’s purpose – which for empaths is always front and center to everything they do!

In astrology (something I have been researching more and more these days), there has been a lot of heavy energy, phases ending, grief, emotional chaos, past illusions, and falsehood fading away.  We had a solar eclipse in Pisces on March 8th augmenting the ending of a period that started in October 2013. As an empath you could be feeling all of this, and noticing others going through similar energetic thresholds with the past as you are.

With all this backlogging of emotional pain, dreams deferred or squashed and any illusions we have fostered in ourselves over these two years, along with the equinox marking the time for spring, nature is helping us to make a new start. The call is to allow this period to greatly detox us from the energies our past so we can start this new period with fresh energy.
IMG_4050

Keeping the body clean and free of chemicals or harsh substances is very important to the empath in health. It’s a great time of year where it feels good to have sobriety, clarity and focus on what’s important. Cultivating freshness of the mind through mindfulness and cleaning bad, toxic thoughts from our system through meditation helps potentiate the proverbial seeds of our projects that we are fostering this year and in the future.Sprouts in Glass Jar

You may be feeling called to eat less and eat cleaner, lighter, higher vibrational foods like fresh greens, antioxidants, tea instead of coffee, and lots of water. Sprouts, thistles like asparagus and artichoke, berries, citrus are great seasonal nutrition at this time. Watch sugar intake as well. Try to have maple syrup, honey, stevia, cooked fruit like apples and pears to replace white and processed sugars.

Because the body is such an important part of intuition, psychic ability, and clairvoyant sight into the future, the sensitive empath may choose to try a movement or fitness class never tried before, taking up a new sport, or making opportunities for getting outside more to be able to hear these clues, insights, and illumination from within for guidance. The body wants to move in new ways during this time, which calms the mind to be able to listen to the heart, cleansing the lymphatic and circulatory system.IMG_2159

As an empath going through these motions you may find yourself first called to declutter and detox your space. Wash all the bed linens, put away blankets, remove the heavy winter rugs, rearrange furniture to remind you of the newness and freshness of spring. Add flowers, floral prints, or buy a little plant at the plant store. Collect any crystals you have and cleanse them in the moonlight, with sea salt, or sage. Give away or throw out things you don’t think about or care about or don’t reflect who you are as a person anymore. Open the windows and let some fresh air and oxygen into the space.

On the emotional plane you could be feeling pulled in many different directions with many different people, or find yourself confronted with the reality of another’s pain with your own pain. This is part of the solar eclipse I mentioned earlier. If you haven’t been dealing with it, at least now you are seeing it in retrospect from your higher self. It’s easy to feel people’s emotions and get caught up in their dramas as if they were your own. It’s natural to want to help, but look at the aspects in your life where it has not been helping since October 2013 and take a stand for yourself now.

Using some of these tips will help break up the old to honor the new coming in. Remember that you are special and that honoring your body and listening to your innate intuition will bring many miracles and blessings into your life. This is a season about change in the most basic way, so embrace the ways you naturally feel inclined for this change.

Another thing in my tool bucket is seeing a health and wellness professional to help keep me accountable and engaged in my new routine. Body work, coaching, nutrition…Now is a great time to set up an acupuncture session with me to help move blood and qi, and supporting the body’s natural transition and detoxification of itself for maximum wellness. It also boosts immune function for those suffering from allergies on a physical level, or boundaries with the environment on a psycho-spiritual level.
