Tune into your body

Do you resist the messages of your body?

Do you suppress tears that want to flow, stay in your chair when your body screams “Get up and move!”? Do you force yourself to stay awake when you need rest? Do you stay in bed when you know your body need to be upright and moving? Do you stifle creative expression, hold back healing sounds and movements your body wants and needs to make? Do you continue eating when you are full? Do you live in your head?

Do you feel that your physical being is the enemy? If so, you have been trained to ignore and suppress your lifelong best friend and messenger, your body.

Happy kid!

When you slowly learn to pay attention to your body again like you did as a young child… you will become aware of the signals as your body alerts you to danger. You will become aware of your own inner “radar” system that will help you navigate through life more smoothly. You will understand through your body’s feelings, emotions, pain, hunger, thirst and subtle sensations that you need to know in the moment for your well-being.

As you become more aware of your body and its needs its rhythms, you can learn to loosen up little by little to free flow, spontaneous expression, full experience. You will feel lighter, freer, happier.

If you’ve been taught to deny yourself full experience of living in your body and feeling what you feel, your energy flow can be re-established.

Playful kid!

Then, once again, like your younger child self, you can live fully happily and harmoniously in your magnificent and joyful body.

Learn to feel

Dear ones, some of the humans who pass by my patch of earth seem to live trapped within dark clouds. I can sense this density, and can feel it as a vibration on the wind and air even from many hundreds of yards away.

dscn4391-640x480

Heavy storm clouds

The dark clouds some carry along keep them always feeling down, wishing and wondering why they can’t feel better, feeling that they are carrying a heavy weight.

When other humans come near, they too are affected by the overcast conditions of those with heavy energy and a dark mood. Even though invisible, it has substance, a reality others can sense.

You can’t really hide. Your energy doesn’t lie!

Many of you humans have been told a lie: “Showing, feeling, and expressing emotions is an unacceptable weakness. Emotions must be suppressed.”

When you believe this lie and stuff your feelings, they just build up like storm clouds, growing denser and darker in your energy field. They do not disappear or dissolve just because you don’t like them and want to deny or ignore them. They do not miraculously vanish into thin air never to be heard from again.

Your emotions are not you – they are energy that needs to move through you.

It is vital to face these storm clouds and feel them so they can begin to move and finally dissipate. There may be turbulence ahead as you do this, so ask for help and support. As you find the courage and inner power to let yourself feel, to bring light into the dark, you will begin to feel lighter and lighter. Your health and well-being will improve.

Clear evening sky

You are meant to be a being of light and power. For maximum health, learn to feel your emotions and let them move through you.

Communicate energetically

Dear ones, with some practice and patience, you can learn to communicate with loved ones across the miles. Yes, I know your shiny blinking and beeping object with the glowing screen does that already…

I speak of love, of real heart to heart deep energetic communication.  I do not speak of easy words!  or emojis! or trite phrases!  The communication I speak of is so much deeper and touches the heart and soul.

Milkweed pods and seeds

To begin, drop your awareness down into your heart.  Breathe several times, in and out of your heart, releasing any static or clouds.   Do you feel love in your heart?  Do you feel peace?   Do you feel calm?  If so, bring an image of your loved one to mind as best you can.  (If you’re feeling angry, fearful, or unhappy try again later when you feel differently.)  Maybe it is a picture of them, maybe you see a piece of paper with their name written down, maybe you smell their perfume and feel their presence.  However you perceive them is OK!

Now ask a beautiful clear light to shine on them and through them.  See and feel them with a loving heart, no judgment, and kind regard.  Your energy is communicating with their energy.  Simple breathe, and let the light shine as long as you wish.

I speak of sending love to your grandchildren when you perceive they need a boost.  I speak of holding your spouse in the light when you want to give them your support.  I speak of blessing your child when she’s far away.  I speak of sending light to a disabled elder.  I speak of opening your heart to those you know are suffering, placing the situation in the hands of the divine.

 

In this way, you can make a real positive difference in your life and the lives of others.

 

Laughter

Even though you can’t see touch, smell, or taste it, laughter bubbles up through your body, cleansing and clearing your energy and leaving you refreshed.  It can reset your mood, and lighten your day, connect you to higher vibrations.

Find reasons to laugh each day. OK, you don’t need a reason!   Kids have never needed a reason!  (If you do need a reason, do it because it feels good!)

DSCN7050 (480x640)

Happy kid!

Make laughter a daily practice to uplift your spirit and connect you to source, for contrary to majority opinion, source loves a good joke! 

The only rule, as always, is do not joke or laugh at the expense of another person or group of people.  Laugh to include, connect, and uplift not to exclude or put down.  Remember the golden rule…

Laughing kid

When you laugh often with fun in mind, you will find your heart and spirit lighter, your mood happier, and your thinking with greater clarity and creativity.  You connect directly to the heart of source when you laugh!

Shine your light

All light workers and healers are needed here and now on this planet in this time and place to create a web of support and loving energy.

You are needed to hold the vibrations you have achieved – strong and straight and true. You are needed to maintain your course, stay on your path, to shine your light, for you are not alone. Others will be inspired and uplifted by your light. Then they too will be able to shine their lights and the web of all things will be strengthened.

Wild geese in Autumn

It is yours to own your light, to shine in the darkness and become an example of what is possible. You set the tone, and strengthen the web of all things.

You will plant seeds of healing and hope with your example. It is not yours to force the seeds to grow. It is not yours to do the heavy lifting. It is up to each individual to grow and blossom at their own pace, in their own time.

You help this process, my dears, simply being the light, lovingly witnessing the transformation of others into all they can be.

Do not be discouraged, for the vibrations, the love, the light you bring to this planet make a difference for the better whether you know it or not.  Do not underestimate your power to create positive change!  You are needed here and now!

 

Renew your spirit

If your spirit is heartsick and your heart is grieving, all the objects, money, luxury, and comfort in your life will be like dust to you. People and activities that were once interesting may seem petty and trivial.

DSCN6850 (640x480)

Spider web

Remember, dear ones, the human heart and spirit can be renewed and made whole again. A torn, threadbare, and dusty tapestry can be carefully rewoven, mended, and cleaned.

Your disrupted energy can be balanced and cleared of dark clouds. When your energy is in harmony, your spirit is fulfilled, and your heart is satisfied, you set the tone for true engagement and full participation in life.

No matter what you are feeling, your spirit possesses the knowledge at some level that wholeness is possible for you, that you are worthy of joy, clarity, and good health.

When you are ready to make this wholeness manifest in your life, ask the universe to support your healing journey. Be open to the guidance you receive, and act on it.

Flow

What do you resist, my dears?

When you were a child, did you resist your bath-time, bedtime, school? Did you resist the rules imposed on you by authority figures?

Now that you are the authority figure in your life, an autonomous being, what do you resist?

Resisting anything creates energetic armor, blocks in your energy field. Resistance creates tightness where there could be flow, disease where there could be harmony, tension where there could be ease, disconnection where there could be wholeness.

Does a fast moving stream push against the boulder and use all its strength to resist its bulk and weight? The stream simply flows around the boulder with ease. The boulder is irrelevant to the mission of the stream, which is to flow with ease.

Flowing stream, autumn leaf

What obstacles, or boulders do you encounter in your life? Can you flow around them like a river?

When you push against, strain and fight, struggle and resist the obstacles in your way, you block your flow and cause conflict both within you and outside of you.

When you allow the energy of your body and life to flow freely, your creative inspiration will provide surprising solutions to the boulders you encounter.

Stand in your light

Are you ready to come out of the shadows, take a chance, and stand in your light?

DSCN6460 (640x480)

Dragonfly on iris leaf

It takes guts, stamina, courage, commitment, and willingness to be seen and heard. Are you willing to risk rejection from others who don’t understand?

When you stand in your light, you know that you are deeply rooted to the earth!  You know your full creative power, and your will, aligned with all that is. You feel the power and beauty of your expanded heart.  You speak with  a clear strong voice.  You trust your intuitive knowing.  You a maintain and nurture a strong connection to the divine.

If you own a human body, you have been given these gifts.

You can develop your gifts – expand them, embrace them and emerge into your full light and power – at your pace, in the timing that suits you.

These gifts, when acknowledged and nurtured will guide you to your highest good.  What is in your highest good is in the highest good of all that is! Strengthen yourself and you strengthen the web of all things!

Enjoy the journey!

Clean house!

It is time to clean house! Begin at the top, dusting, sweeping, clearing out the old, the stale, the outdated, those objects, ideas, attitudes, that are no longer useful.

DSCN5465 (480x640)

Grandmother Cottonwood and the untidy nest

Go into the hidden places- the closets, cupboards the drawers. Clear things out! Bring in light and air and fresh energy!

Bring in the new, new clothing, new ideas, new intentions, new friends, removing from your home and experience the clutter and junk and dead wood that weighs you down and dims your clarity- that causes your focus to fade, that holds you back.

Clear out, renew, clean, polish, and shine, leaving only what you choose to have in your life. Choose to keep only those objects, experiences, people, feelings, emotions, ideas, that enrich and empower your life!

You can weather any storm

Cut through the clutter and chatter; penetrate the clouds and debris of your life, physical, mental, emotional for your health and well-being.

dscn3412-640x480

Sunshine through thick clouds

Just as your home and surroundings benefit from a clearing and cleaning, so does your energy atmosphere. It might seem impossible to let go of stale old emotions left over from the past, holding you prisoner. You can release them and move forward with new lightness of being.

To do this takes courage self compassion and commitment to your well-being. Get help if you need it as you access, feel and give compassionate attention to the feelings that arise in you.

These feelings are energy.   You will feel them in your body,  feel them moving. Some of them may feel overpowering, like a thunder storm rolling through. Do not fear, dear ones every storm passes in time. Gather your courage and stay with it. Persevere.

Stay with the emotion, become a compassionate observer as it rises, floods, crests and dissipates. Feel its presence in your body without judgment. Allow it to be as it is and in time it will shift and change and lighten as you cease resistance. After a storm all the earth is cleansed, refreshed and ready to grow!

Know this! You are strong, powerful, capable. You can weather any storm. You can heal.
