Creating Consciously with Intention in 2023

Creating Consciously with Intention in 2023

The chapter titled 2022 is almost fully written, and we are now beginning to consider the chapter titled 2023. Although we cannot change what we previously experienced, we can shift the energy and our perception of those experiences, especially those we deem less than desirable. We are energetic beings having a human life experience, and each one of us are powerful creators. We must simply realize the power that we behold, which means that we can become conscious creators.

To create consciously and intentionally, we must first be mindful of the energy we are emitting into the Universe with our thoughts, words and actions, since this energetic emission can be reflected back to us according to the Law of Attraction. A quick summation of this concept is that we create our own reality, like attracts like and the present is always perfect. The Law of Attraction suggests that what we focus on will be drawn to us and that what we believe will happen, does happen. Practicing this concept in a healthy, balanced way, rather than feeling stressed, obsessed or overwhelmed with it, is essential, particularly since our thoughts are energy.

Actually, since everything is energy and has its own frequency and vibration, what we focus on can become our reality. The radio signals we are broadcasting include our self-talk and the other extraneous thoughts running through our mind as well as our emotions. The thoughts that we think and the words that we speak are the foundation for our creation. Once we fully comprehend this, we can create more consciously.

The arrival of the new year is the perfect opportunity for us to embrace the newness and the potential infinite possibilities in order to truly create a new beginning or at least a new outlook. Initially, the creation process involves getting clear about what we desire to manifest then having an awareness of the energy we are infusing into the creation.

Many times, our human-ness begins overthinking, overanalyzing and even questioning the manifestation details. Really, our only priority is to check-in to see what the intention is behind the manifestation. Is it love-based or one of lack (fear-based)? Neither is good nor bad as they are merely energetic vibrations that we are infusing into the creation, which will then affect the outcome.

Practicing non-attachment to the outcome is a necessary aspect to conscious creation. If we have pre-conceived notions and expectations, these thoughts can also influence the outcome. Understandably, we have to remember that not everything we desire to manifest is possible for us right now and may not come to fruition in the manner in which we expect it to be fulfilled. As an example, many individuals state they would love to win the lottery. Perhaps, with this request, they are really asking to be financially secure with all of their needs being met.

An intentional creative process entails invoking the power of choice along with the energy of words through clear, honest and authentic communication. An intention can be a plan, a goal or an emotion infused into an idea; it is often thought of as why or how we do what we do. Setting intentions involves working with our intuition and requires an awareness of our inner desires. The process includes connecting fully with our being — body, mind and spirit — in order to align with a desired aspect of life or a feeling. In addition, the action of setting intentions also requires addressing our resistances and may even involve delving deeper within.

We each have the ability to create consciously with intention. Let us set the intention to live an inspired life as we intentionally journey through each day of 2023. In doing so, we can choose to fully embrace our aliveness with every choice we make.

Understanding Our Energy Pulls

Understanding Our Energy Pulls

Many of us have been waiting, hoping and even praying for the health concerns to subside and a sense of normalcy in our lives to return. The reality is that we may currently be experiencing a new normal. I often speak of energy awareness and practicing good energetic hygiene, but are you aware of your energy pulls? The pulls I’m referring to are those people, places and things that pull at and affect our energy, especially in a negative way. We may consciously choose to invest energy in someone or something OR they may be affecting our energy without our consent (and even conscious knowing).

To explain further, the Solar Plexus chakra, which is located in our abdominal area, is our power center. Begin tuning in to when you feel energy pulls affecting this area. Feelings of nervousness, anxiety or unsettled energy are some ways it may appear.

I invite you to take a moment and spend some time in reflection. Allow whatever and whomever to come into your mind and conscious awareness. As these thoughts flow through, become aware of how often you spend time dwelling on something you need to do – a task that needs to be finished, a project that needs to be completed, errands to be ran, a phone call to be made or email to be sent. Also, become aware of those people in your life that seem to be a distraction or feel exhausting to be around. These examples as well as many other situations are all energy pulls whether we fully realize it or not.

Put your energy into building what is creative, valuable and empowering.
And you won’t have to constantly fight against what is destructive and draining.
~ Ralph Marston

As you feel led, I encourage you to become more aware of your own energy pulls and then choose to eliminate the pull. Either complete the task or stop focusing energy on it. Cocooning involves pulling your energy in, which may also involve establishing boundaries, as you become more aware of energy drains.

Afterwards, intentionally gather your energy bringing it back to you. Providing a visual, I literally move my arms and hands in a gathering motion and envision that I am restoring the energy to the Solar Plexus chakra that was previously disbursed. Practicing good energetic hygiene is a must. Start by grounding and centering your energy; then clear your auric field, cut energetic cords and keep your chakras cleared and balanced. You’ll feel so much better when you do – physically, mentally, emotionally and definitely energetically!

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?
