Calm within the Chaos

Calm within the Chaos

Everything we do is infused with the energy with which we do it.
If we’re frantic, life will be frantic. If we’re peaceful, life will be peaceful.

~ Marianne Williamson

Any time the energy around you feels a bit heavy or overwhelming, it is essential for you to remember that you have the power to shift the energy. You can allow what is happening around you to affect you or you can maintain the calm within the chaos and consciously choose how you wish to respond. Becoming aware of your own energetic emission is necessary, so that you can gauge what feels “off” to you.

I have mentioned before that I am aware of issues connected to Mercury Retrograde, but I don’t intentionally fuel them with fear or worry. During my time in Kansas City recently, my patience was really tested as I experienced numerous challenges. There were issues involving my email, website, communication and even my own energy. On four separate occasions, I actually had to have my hotel room key reprogrammed. Each time was a reminder to pause, breathe and do my best to stay in a space of grace.

To experience peace does not mean that your life is always blissful.
It means that you are capable of tapping into a blissful state of mind
amidst the normal chaos of a hectic life.
~ Jill Bolte Taylor

When there is perceived chaos surrounding you, come back to you by grounding and centering your energy. To ground your energy, visualize your legs as tree roots growing into the earth below and work with grounding crystals, such as hematite, jet, smoky quartz and black tourmaline. Staying hydrated assists with grounding as well.

Then, center your energy by visualizing white light at your core and see that light shifting to yellow, which is the color of the solar plexus chakra. Breathe in peace, love, calmness and serenity as you exhale the heavy, lower vibrational energy that may be affecting you. Remember, often times you cannot control what is happening around you, but you can attain the peace within and choose how you wish to respond.

Everything is Energy

Everything is Energy

Energy definition according to Merriam-Webster dictionary:

  1. the strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity (a person’s physical and mental powers, typically as applied to a particular task or activity)
  2. power derived from the utilization of physical or chemical resources, especially to provide light and heat or to work machines

No activity is possible without energy, and its total amount in the universe is fixed. In other words, energy cannot be created or destroyed, but can only be changed from one type to another. This includes your loved ones who have transitioned from the earth plane. They no longer have a physical body, but still remain energy.

Breath is life-force energy. When we restrict our breathing, we diminish our life energy. Deep breathing expands the lungs, which then send a direct message to your heart, which in turn starts beating slower. Focus your awareness on your breath – each inhalation and exhalation. Is it shallow or deep, slow or fast, smooth or rough, regular or irregular?

Thoughts, words, action = energy!

Be mindful of the energy you are putting out into the Universe with your thoughts, words and actions as you are attracting this same energy back into your life. What you focus on becomes your reality. Your self-talk and the other thoughts running through your mind are similar to radio signals. Choose to be conscious of those energetic emissions.

What energetic emission/radio transmission are you sending out? No need to define it as “good” or “bad.” Simply have the awareness of your energy. Is your energy scattered or focused/grounded? Empowered or dis-empowered? Clingy/needy or confident? Stable or unstable? Joyful/happy or unhappy? Light or heavy? Now, take a deep breath and really tap into creating consciously with your energetic emission.

Maximizing Energy and Minimizing Effort on this Journey

Maximizing Energy and Minimizing Effort on this Journey

My mantra for 2017 has been maximize time and energy while minimizing effort and expenses. This can also be interpreted as work smarter, not harder. This message first came to me after my husband experienced a heart attack 12/2/16, and he recognized a short time later that it would be in his best interest to discontinue what he has done work-wise since graduating high school. I encouraged him to really feel into what he enjoyed and what he was capable of doing physically. Then, we assessed the changes that could be made to achieve it. I continue to remind him to maximize his time and energy (and also not to overdo it), while also minimizing his effort and the financial aspect associated with doing business.

I’ve offered this suggestion to my daughter as she prepares to graduate from college in less than a month and attain full-time employment. I gently conveyed this message to my son since he will be relocating to a new area and returning to college in the fall to begin his quest for his juris doctorate degree after graduating college 3 years ago with an industrial engineering degree.

I’ve applied this mantra to my own work. I’ve chosen to really assess what I do and how I do it. I’ve realized that when I consciously choose to invest my time and energy wisely in whatever it may be (people, places or things), including myself, the energetic investment tends to feel easy and the end result or outcome is often effortless.

What can you maximize and minimize in your own life?

Journey with Empowerment

Journey with Empowerment

As an Intuitive Medium, Reiki Master and Spiritual Growth Coach, my purpose is to assist others on their journey into consciousness by empowering them to recognize and acknowledge the guidance they are receiving for themselves. Our solar plexus chakra is the energetic center of our knowingness, also referred to as our “gut instinct.” As we tune into this power center, we become more empowered to stand in our power and to feel safe in shining our Light bright.


What does standing in your power mean?
When you allow yourself to be who you really are with all people all of the time, you are exhibiting the courage and strength to be seen and heard. I refer to this courage as standing in your power. This involves communicating your needs and desires to others as well as to yourself. Standing in your power simply means “owning” what you believe to be true and then speaking your truth. Emanating this power in your words and actions requires no thought when you become accustomed to doing so.

Throughout your life, some people may try to control you or the choices you are making. When you allow this to happen, you are either consciously or subconsciously giving your power away to another. Do you recognize when this happens? How does it make you feel?

Any time a pattern or experience repeats itself, it is important to acknowledge it and then allow yourself to see things from a Higher perspective. These experiences will continue to repeat themselves until you recognize the lesson the experience is offering. You may ask – What am I supposed to learn from this experience. Why do I feel this way? 

8 Steps to Become Empowered

  1. Ground and center your energy while consciously bringing your energy to this present moment. You are in the flow of manifestation when you are living in the here and now rather than dwelling in the past or planning the future.
  2. Have the courage to be who you are always and in all ways. There is no need to carry the energy of what others may think or say about you. Each one of us is having our own human life experience. Choose to honor your experience as well as everyone else’s experience.
  3. Say what you mean to say. When you speak your truth, you will recognize the importance of hearing the truth from others. Be mindful when communicating and discern if you are coming from a place of love or fear/lack. Communicate your needs and desires to yourself and to others. Don’t assume that everyone can read your mind – you have to speak up. 
  4. Listen to what your body is telling you. Pay attention to the sensations that you feel physically. As you heighten your awareness and tune in, you will be accustomed to recognizing this communication.
  5. Surrender and release to Spirit/the Universe anything you cannot control. The five things you can actually control are your own thoughts, words, actions, emotions and reactions.
  6. Choose to be conscious of the energy you are emitting. Are you sending mixed signals to the Universe with your thoughts/words and actions? When you align your thoughts, words and actions with your beliefs, you are walking your talk and talking your walk.
  7. Trust the guidance you are receiving. You may not understand the how, when, why, what, where aspects, but it is important to acknowledge the guidance you are receiving and express your gratitude for receiving it.
  8. Be patient with your progress. Cease the mind chatter and negative self-talk. Honor yourself and what you are feeling.
