The Energy of You

Each one of us is unique, though we are all part of a bigger collective sharing in a universal experience. Yes, sounds a little complicated unless you break it down to the fact that we are all just energetic beings. Who else believes everything is energy?

What this means is that there are different frequencies of energy and different rates of engaging with this energy – but the best part is that energy is transformable. This means that if we decide we want to be a certain way or have a certain experience we hold an ability to do so. Yes sometimes it is as easy as breathing a little deeper and sometimes it takes just a little bit more work. Regardless, if we align with ourselves then we can step into a frequency that we approve of, accept and courageously bringing forward in the world.

Being able to become who we are is quite an opportunity, some people have said the opportunity of a lifetime which is a privilege available to everyone that chooses to engage more deeply. If that sounds too complicated, it really is about coming home to who you already are – an energetic being that has what it takes to come alive!

What would it be like for you to pause and celebrate life, on some level on a daily basis? Yes, a bit of an undertaking, but getting into a positive frequency makes it easier to create and allow for an enjoyable experience of life – even when it is hard or painful. (If doing it on a daily basis seems overwhelming what about a season or a cycle or even just a few days)? It would fill our ‘resilience tank’ which would then give us the capacity to handle adversity when it comes. For those living in daily adversity, then this is a free accessible tool to reconnect you to the potential that is available to access a new reality.

In the energy of being ourselves we have to allow ourselves permission to be who we have always wanted to be. (While respecting the story of where we have come from). It may take a change in habit and routine, but you can start buy honoring the energy of you. Could you take time everyday to really tune into your uniqueness, your talents, gifts, even your story? By honoring it on a daily basis you give it more energy which allows you to stand more fully in your personal power. It requires a little bit of vulnerability but if you approve of you it is easy to take a little risk and share your light with the world. Which by the way the universe is anxiously awaiting to see you come alive!

There are external energies influencing you as well. Some of them we can shift and change, and sometimes the reality of life seems so unbearable we aren’t certain we have the resources to even begin to make a shift. Pain and adversity is real and it heavily influences how we engage in our life. This engagement is the energy we bring forward to express our experiences. In my opinion there is no real way to get rid of the pain, but we can transform it back to peace. Back to a simple joy and choose to live from that connection which in time can help heal the wounds of our heart. (If you want help with this, please reach out, to me or someone you trust and value).

One thing we want to do is allow ourselves permission to enjoy rather than deny ourselves the connection to the simple celebrations of life. Being able to laugh, getting lost in the light of our hearts, and being able to appreciate the people that show up to support, love and connect with us in our life (or our dreams). Sometimes we just have to appreciate that the breath was there for us when our life depended on it.

When we compassionately engage with the energy of ourselves we know ourselves on a deeper level. This awareness connects us to the core of our being creating value, confidence, and authenticity. What I believe is that when we connect to our individual energy then we honor the energy of the collective. At the same rate if we honor and appreciate the collective it can be easier to step in and honor the energy of the individual.

If you find the energy of the collective to be discouraging, connect back to what inspires you and engage with this energy regularly so you can bring forward your gifts in subtle ways to make a radical difference over time. In the same effort if you are inspired by the energy around you, connect back to the energy of yourself that appreciates this reflection, engage with it on your own terms and add to the inspiration of the world.

What energy of life lights you up right now? What energy are you bringing to life? Tell me cause I love to know the energy of you!

Action – Manifest – Episode 49

Everything is Energy and everything is sacred. Yes, powerful statements brought up this month. Now let’s layer in the idea that by slowing your action down we actually gain momentum. What have you discovered so far?

By taking time to tune in we then bring forward awareness and an opportunity to align in a way that will bring forward our best offering. This is what we call INSPIRED ACTION. Being inspired 100% of the time is not the idea. Being able to tune into the progress and level in which you are participating is.

This weeks offering includes tools to check in with the momentum or lack there of in your life. If you are stuck or reluctant in your life right now this will be powerful. For those of you on the fast track to HAPPINESS, well, this will only encourage the speed in which you are moving.

I am going to tie this episode back to elements of yoga as well as a pattern of cultivating optimal thoughts or at least restoring your thoughts to be more uplifting and helpful in finding answers to the best steps forward. It is a practice that will help you take inventory of where you are and where you are heading and redirect you into the flow of fun…that is if you are interested in moving through life with a smile on your face and joy in your heart.[podcast src=”” height=”90″ width=”450″ placement=”bottom” theme=”mini”]

Without A Doubt

There are not many moments we enter where it is easily said….without a doubt. But there are moments and these moments affirm the certainty which than carries us through uncertain times. Trust, faith and conviction all help as well as having practices and tools that keep us integrated to our center. Aligned not so much with the chaos but the mystical potency our highest being holds. There are things for me that I know to be true without a doubt. That every single one of us are sacred at our core. Yes, even the ones I might not agree with completely. That love is real. My vision and clarity of where I am headed aligned with faith in the present moment is much more serving and supportive than questioning everything. That the sun's light is steady and that somehow things always work out…you know…everything is going to be ok. There is an energetic forecast that reveals a heightened intensity for this month. (Personally I feel I have been in this intensity and am so grateful to those from whom I turn to for healing, growth, inspiration & support). Being able to care for yourself daily in ways that keep you in tune, grounded and clear are essential. If you have been in a place of surrender, ecstatic expression, challenge, sad, on fire, it's going to continue to be extreme. Freaking out won't really help anyone, thing or yourself so recognize how you are choosing to participate. Cultivating practical processes that keep you connected to your highest expression of love & light will feed the faith that banishes doubt. This months podcast theme is all about sustenance, so perhaps its time to be committed to personal clarity so we can be supportive of the collective.

It appears the most supportive tool right now includes kindness, patience and compassion. At least that’s advice that continues to reappear as I navigate a deeper understanding of the astrological forecast currently. (Full list of inspiration at the end of this post). Did you know that we are in a current arrangement that has multiple planets appearing to move backwards? (Official term is retrograde). 

Before I go any further, if you know me you know I draw inspiration from the stars as we are all just stars dust anyway. Don’t believe me, google it or go ask a physicist (or science teacher) the core ingredients of the universe that are essential for human life to exist. And if your wrinkling your forehead as you realize that I’m about to go on about how the planetary arrangement has an effect on the inner workings and putter results of your life, I ask you what would happen if the moon decided that it no longer wanted to orbit our earth? You can ask the physics teacher if you aren’t sure.

Now that you are a little more on board with me I can continue….my written offering regarding RECALIBRATING. So if we all (the collective and inclusive) are star dust and everything is connected and everything is energy and that energy is contagious…it might support you’re ability to live with more confidence and enjoyment to pause and pay attention.

This past fall I was called/inspired to put on a four part series of how yoga is the entry point to finding our center. It combined my experience and education regarding yoga, counseling and coaching. The focus was on cultivating inner stability, Finding Your Center, and I intentionally timed the course with the winter solstice and the spring equinox, from darkness to light. I’m pretty certain a majority of the participants gained a great deal of insight to incorporate in their life. As the facilitator I invited them to work towards an energetic recalibration to cultivate conscious cognitive consistency. The four part series was just an introduction and I’m honored to have committed individuals that are interested in furthering their own growth. Little did I know we were preparing for a time that asks individuals to strengthen their center or inner radar.

Now, here we are at a time of a wild and wonderful arrangement with the planets. Mars, the planet of muscle and movement, symbolizing ambition and success is in retrograde. And as Raflee Finn puts it, even Mars doesn’t like being in retrograde. But there’s more way more. Mars joined the company of Pluto, which brings out our shadow or psychological vulnerabilities. (For a deeper understanding see the links below). So what does this have to do with recalibrating?

These great astrological guides recommend finding your center and strengthening your inner radar. (Yes, I am repeating how my listening to my own inner wisdom because I have been doing a lot of recalibrating myself is being currently encourage among astrologists). But How can you possibly connect to and strengthen this radar/center if you don’t slow down? How can you even operate if you don’t have a pulse on your own inner workings? Yet we all want our life to go according to plan and have the results we desire…

(Pluto by the way encourages you to look at your belief system and release the limitations that have created a conscious conditioning which has formed many invisible walls that are inhibiting your freedom).

Well, though I could go on and on (and if you are working with me privately you know we will continue the conversation or if you come to a yoga class of mine guess the theme). But for the sake of this blog I’m going to wrap it up. The planets on some level are asking you to slow the frick down!

Saturn and Jupiter are also retrograde and in a few days Mercury also goes retrograde. So in your future, the collective future, there will be 5 planets in retrograde for the next few months! Boom! The cosmic map is inviting you to reflect, release, receive, remember and recalibrate.   So here are a few suggestions to help you navigate the astrological transformation that is before you or emotional currents that will rock your sense of stability.

1.Return to your truth. Get in touch with an honest concept of yourself.

2. Reconnect to that which motivates you from the inside, your center, conscious core. (Not sure, read number 3 then go back to number 1).

3. Remember we are all in this together and recognize the importance of patience, kindness and compassion in your endeavors both with yourself and all that you encounter.

There are so many ways you can do this in a way that is fun and enjoyable! It’s an investment though of energy, specifically time and money. You can purchase books, read blogs, converse with friends (the compassionate, loving & supportive ones). You can return to your meditation or prayer practice. All this will support you. You can go a little further and work with a coach or a counselor. Yes, I am a coach that helps support individuals in gaining clarity, finding their center and recalibrating to enjoy more ease, vitality & confidence. Yes you can hire me and it is totally worth it if you want to experience life with less stress (physical, mental, financial, emotional).

What I’ve loved about having a coach myself, is my life is enjoyably peaceful amid the noise and haste. I’ve affirmed my ability to live from empowered truths and discovered a more authentic way to participate with the world. And as I’m about to turn 40 I’m in a place of truly embracing the wisdom that I’ve been graced with and am in tune with a sense of self that gives my life great purpose and well truly living with grace. (I’ve still got stuff I’m just living from a higher vantage point).

You can continue to navigate the currents of your life by default and know that you aren’t alone. We are all in this together. You can also get even more clear by recommitting to your own light, remembering the worthy worrier you are and receive more enrichment and enhancement. You know, recalibrate.

Just as you are

Because you are just right. There is always room to grow and we are always changing. Refining and evolving, never the same, yet we tend to hold a pattern. This pattern can go two ways, either in an expanding grove or a contractive unfolding. It sounds simple. We feel awe struck or we feel unfulfilled. We recognize the bigger picture we are a part of or we could feel alienated from everything. Unfortunately we even feel that we don’t deserve the good side of life. For example, there will be a flow to my week where I am overflowing with ideas and moments where the wellspring of my heart feels dry. When I am overflowing, I am excited and enthusiastic, witty and captivating – well, most of the time. When I am empty it’s rough and unfortunate. This is a pattern yoga, specifically Shaivism, that considers our truth to be conscious of bliss. Yes, our deepest truth is consciousness and bliss yet this bliss gets hidden. Before I go any further, bliss, our english translation of bliss is a little different than the sanskrit word ananda. Rather there is a form that gets cloaked in the crude, the junk, the uncomfortable and we forget that we are enough, that we are just right. We are giving an opportunity to rise up to the highest form of ourselves, but it ain’t easy, especially since we also have a built in capacity to know fear, isolation and disgust.

Don’t believe me?…watch your day. Are there moments where you feel great joy, love and peace, and do you allow yourself the moment that is just right. Can you breathe into the simplicity and abundance that flows through you once a day. Even when I am challenged and I begin to devalue my offering there is a rush of doubt. Doubt is important as it keeps you from drinking the kool-aid. But doubting that you are just enough can be healthy for only a moment to consider the big picture. A little inspiration from an open, expressive  attitude that fuels the desire to see more and experience more. Well, the pattern of moving from joy to anger takes work as does a willing heart. But if you see this pattern in yourself, then you can also see it in each other. Seeing yourself as being just right, may take an entire lifetime, but it creates a patterning in the body that strives for the good sweet nectar of the absolute heart.

This isn’t a common idea so consider me just beginning to unpack this contemplation. This is one of my favorite things to consider so since this posting process still has another 99 days before it…I’m going with the idea that I’ll probably share insights as they come and help guide physically, mentally and emotionally, but for now, this is just enough.
