Remember that traumatic events, no matter how small they may seem to us at the time, contain a multitude of energy (both physical and emotional) that may leave behind a fingerprint if we are unable to fully process and release them.
We don’t always have control over the things that happen to us, but we do know that our bodies are always doing their best to keep us safe and able to move forward. Sometimes we go through unpleasant events or traumas, and even after we feel that we have mentally moved on, our bodies may disagree!
Emotions and feelings are pure energy, and manifest themselves in physical form, creating a wave of vibration in our cells that can even be measured by scientific equipment. Basic things like heart rate, perspiration, and skin temperature all change depending on the emotional state we are in!
So what happens when we get home at the end of a long day, and we feel a little overwhelmed or have physical twinges that we can’t quite identify? This is where a regular grounding and releasing practice comes in! Being able to wash ourselves clean of others’ energies and cut cords that hold us down are key techniques for any empath or HSP.
Human energy is a huge and complex web, and it’s not uncommon for our threads to feel tangled with everyone else’s sometimes. You may be picking up energetic “stuff” that isn’t even yours and not even knowing it, and all that gunk can sometimes cause unwanted effects. Our bodies and brains are being bombarded with energetic signals from all directions, and for some of us, that can take a toll on our health and well being.
It’s been a long, hot and difficult summer. I’m so happy to wake up to cool mornings, warm afternoons and the promise of fall. Today, I was able to get out for a bike ride along the Poudre river trail. I was listening to Credence Clearwater Revival belting out Proud Mary when I spied three golden eagles above me. Not one. Not two. Three!
"We are called to become hollow bones for our people, and anyone else we can help. We are not supposed to seek power for our personal use and honor. What we bones really become is the pipeline that connects Wakan Tanka, the helpers and the community together." ~Fool's Crow
"Dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you." Stepping back and taking a look at your dreams is fun! Each of us taps a line into our inner knowing every night. If you don't think you dream, or can't remember your dreams, then you are missing out on valuable insight.
Homes and buildings take on the energies of the people who live and work there. Have you noticed that some places feel inviting – and others really don’t? The feel of a place goes beyond the furnishings, lighting, and color scheme. The vibe that you feel may include the thoughts and emotions of the people who built, lived in, and frequented the space...
In my last post, I described how I have been working with the Seraphim angels. They guided me to offer a series of three distance energy sessions to help us ride the waves of energetic change that this month's eclipses are bringing us.
According to NASA’s website, the total solar eclipse on August 21st will cross the entire country, coast-to-coast, for the first time since 1918. Many of us in the U.S. are lucky to have a front row seat to an once-in-a-lifetime spectacle. Ever since I got wind of the eclipse a few months ago and managed to book the very last camping spot in Wyoming, I’ve had a sense of excitement about what’s to come.
I recently collaborated with my friends, Kathy Dickson and Amy Cade, to create a workshop honoring the sacred feminine. We offered this last month at the Om Ananda Yoga studio in Fort Collins. We sold out. The feedback was heartening, and we felt so uplifted by the experience, that we offered it again last week.
Today, after a coughing jag, one of my intuitive clients asked me if there was something that I wasn’t saying. My first response was to say “no”, but then a realization struck me. There has been something that I need to speak about.
Nestled right between your eyebrows, the third eye is thought to be connected to your pituitary gland, which has been called the "master gland" of the body, responsible for regulating your biochemistry, as well as acting as the "seat of the mind"/center of your intellect.
The fifth chakra, the throat chakra, is the first of the higher chakras, which are concerned with the spiritual realms. Known as Vishuddha in Sanskrit, the throat chakra is the powerhouse of communication, self-expression, and how we put our truth out into the world.
The fourth chakra is known as Anahata in Sanskrit, which loosely translates to “unstruck”, the concept of being unhurt or unbroken. And this beautiful notion is a great thing to keep in mind while working with your heart.
The 3rd chakra is called Manipura in Sanskrit, and is known as the center for our willpower, sense of self, and the seat of our motivation. This is also the chakra that governs our digestion, energy levels, and zest for life.
The sacral chakra is where we tap in to our primal desire for passion and self-expression, and when it is open and healthy, we experience balanced emotional expression, healthy relationship dynamics, and feel sexually empowered and fulfilled.
The root forms our energetic base, and is related to our most primitive needs like food, shelter, security, and tribal association. Our first chakra is what we build upon as we grow up from infancy, and a solid root chakra is necessary for a balanced, grounded, and empowered life.
Your chakras are always spinning and churning energy, just like your computer is always humming away in the background. But what if you want to make a change in the way your energy system runs? You’ll probably have to reboot everything, right? That’s what we are attempting to do with this technique.
Last week, I was camping in the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming. It’s wild, beautiful country. I was hiking along a gentle trail that follows the Tongue River and felt inspired to clear my chakras in a new way. The clearing process was simple. Yet by the end of the hike, I felt free in a way that is hard to describe.
