Lighten Up: Living in Prosperous Joy

Lighten Up: Living in Prosperous Joy

I recently had the opportunity to speak at Unity of Fayetteville in Fayetteville, Arkansas.  To listen to and/or download the inspirational message, please click the Hightail link.

The last few months, I’ve consistently become more aware of consciously choosing to live my life with passion, presence and purpose. Spending time in reflection has also involved questioning mortality, life and truly living.

I often say each one of us are having our own unique human life experience. However, all too often we deny ourselves the opportunity to experience something magical or even limit ourselves based on the fear of being judged. What will people think? How will people perceive me? Will they like me? Is this good or bad, right or wrong?

We may also withhold expressing how we feel because we fear being criticized or judged for saying too much or not enough. To me, it feels extremely limiting to get caught up in what other people think, yet I am human, too, so those thoughts do arise.

Take a moment to consider – Are you living a life of joy or simply existing?

It’s time for each one of us to lighten up and consciously choose to live a prosperous life with passion, presence and purpose. Do your best to live your life fully with no regret. Speak from the heart. Be present in the moment. Stop judging and being critical of yourself and those around you. Surrender to the sweetness of life. Live your life and let others live theirs. Everyone is experiencing their own journey into consciousness.

Journey with Aliveness

Journey with Aliveness

Imagination makes it possible to experience a whole world inside the mind and creates possibilities. It offers the opportunity to look at any situation from a different point of view and then to mentally explore the past and the future. Through the power of imagination, we can transform our lives and is one of the keys to living an enhanced or different life. Whatever outcome we envision, we can achieve. Using this gift, we can release limiting thoughts and realize our divine potential.

Learn to use your imagination to raise your thinking to a higher level and to consciously create by choosing to replace any negative (lower vibrational) thoughts with positive (higher vibrational) ones through awareness and intention. Doubt and fear are the biggest obstacles to the manifestation process. Understanding how to use your imagination and putting this knowledge into practice, for your own and others’ benefit, will put you on the path to success, satisfaction and happiness.

Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement. ~ Golda Meir

With so much heavy and chaotic energy surrounding us, it is essential to attain and maintain inner peace, not just for ourselves, but also for the collective consciousness. A heart-centered love-based intention reminds us to stay in a space of grace, especially when faced with challenges. In doing so, we are tapping into the well of Divine love. This love is accessible, unconditional and unfaltering. It transcends yet also embraces.

It is time for each one of us to wake up to our greatness so that we can truly live life fully. Have the courage to imagine this reality and choose to journey into consciousness with fullness and aliveness rather than simply existing.

Journey with Compassion for Self

Journey with Compassion for Self

Compassion is defined as a strong feeling of empathy and perhaps even sympathy and sadness for other people’s suffering along with a desire to help.

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. ~ Maya Angelou

As I often state, being human can be “tough” sometimes! This journey into consciousness reminds us of the need to have compassion for ourselves and those around us. During the January 21 breathwork session at H2Oasis Float Center & Tea House (read more about my experiences on the blog titled Journey with Breathwork), a friend and fellow attendee received this message from Spirit, “Many times, we are all too hard on ourselves. We are strong enough to endure this human life experience, and we need to be reminded of this periodically. It is essential that we have as much compassion for ourselves as we so often extend to others. In other words, we need to be easier on ourselves and much kinder.”

Heart-centered living involves practicing self-love, which is compassion for self. When we choose to accept and practice heart-centered living, we understand that we are the central point of creation of our personal reality – we are the center of our Universe.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. ~ Dalai Lama

Until we are able to fully understand love, both personally and experientially, which includes learning to love ourselves, we are of little value to those around us. Of course, this has nothing to do with selfishness, but with being awake and aware enough to know that we can only give what we are and what we have. Therefore, if we do not have love within us and for ourselves, how can we give love, kindness, respect or compassion to others?

Journey with Breathwork

Journey with Breathwork

I recently had the opportunity to experience ceremonial breathwork at H2Oasis Float Center & Tea in Tulsa, OK. The first experience was on January 1, followed by additional experiences on January 7 and January 21 with each experience being unique. Undoubtedly, the collective energy and synergy of those in attendance contributed to the experience.

H2Oasis Float Center & Tea House Facebook event notes the following on ceremonial breathwork:

Artist Katherine Skaggs 2017

“For centuries, mystics have believed the breath to be the seat of the soul, which corresponds to the activation of the Pineal Gland or the Third Eye Awakening. This, in essence, is the awakening of the soul. Breathwork is a powerful self-healing modality that can free up the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual bodies. With conscious breath, there is an opportunity to resolve trauma, remember our essential nature, and access trance states of consciousness in which we can resolve core issues or gain insight into the nature of reality. When conscious connected breathing is sustained for long enough, the old stresses, emotions, trauma, repressed and suppressed experiences can rise to the surface to be resolved. The result is usually deep relaxation and expanded awareness.”

They continue by stating, “Through ceremony and inward journeying, we’ll explore the connection between the wisdom of Gaia, heart-centering and cosmic energies. Shela, Deb and Jaylene will use their gifts to support and enhance your experience. They will hold sacred space for you to open to channel and align with your highest human potential. Come experience non-ordinary states of consciousness in a safe and healing environment. Participants can expect: Grounding and intention setting, guided meditation to connect body and breath, 90-120 minutes of circular breathing to a customized playlist (three energetic waves) and integration. May include the use of any or none of the following: channeling, activations, Reiki, mapacho, essences, sound therapy, shamanic work, cacao and more (each session varies depending on the group energetics).”

Without providing all of the details, here are the highlights of what I experienced during each session:

January 1 – Since it was my first experience, I was “testing the waters,” so to speak and wanted to maintain as much control as I could. Allowing myself to ease into the circular breathing and opting to breathe through my nostrils (rather than through my mouth), the playlist of songs chosen ran the gamut of pulsating, intense energies to gentle serenity. At one point, I saw a warrior Goddess in my mind’s eye and heard the name Athena. The message coming through reminded me that I (and all women) can be both a warrior and a Goddess at the same time – that both archetypes serve a purpose. The word pleasure came through very loudly with Spirit saying it is time to enjoy pleasure in all of its forms. Oh my goodness are the words I would use to summarize the experience with an extreme emphasis on “oh…my!”

January 7 – Feeling safe and comfortable, I was open and receptive to experience whatever came through without hesitation and opted to breathe through my mouth this time. I summed the session up with the words, “Holy F*ck!” The journey began, and I saw myself as a blue whale, a mermaid, and then a serpent. I visited Lemuria and ancient Egypt where I hung out with Isis, Anubis and Ra. I brought light to the darkness, became a tree of life and experienced the crucifixion as Jesus. My body got quite the workout, and I was exhausted from the experience. Most of the journey was very symbolic and may even be perceived as an egoic death.

January 21 – The two weeks between sessions had been very emotional for me. My grandmother (Nanny) experienced an aneurysm on January 10 and passed away on January 15 with her service being held on January 18. Our sweet dachshund Odie also passed on January 16.

My intention for this session was clarity and connection. Thankfully, the energy was calming and comforting, which is exactly what my body, mind and spirit needed. I would summarize the experience as exquisite. Shakti, the Divine Feminine energy, was palpable. I could feel Mother Mary’s presence and at one point saw an image in my mind of a print titled, “Presence Heals,” that I have hanging in my Reiki cabin. I then saw myself in that image being held by my grandmother. The next song sounded like opera music with a woman singing. I immediately remembered hearing my Nanny sing and became very emotional as if the song were being sung to me. I felt unconditional Divine love and was reminded that I am loved and also the energy of love.

These three experiences have provided me with an opportunity to delve deeper. Through the altered state of consciousness via breathwork, the breathwork journey and its accompanying extreme heightened senses have enhanced my own abilities and offered additional peace in my life. I am ready to explore some more and am looking forward to the next opportunity.

Journey into Another Holiday Season

Journey into Another Holiday Season

I am guided to revisit some tips that I have shared with you before to honor your well-being during the holiday season as this time of year can be a very stressful time for a lot of people. This stress may involve shopping for gifts and the associated financial aspects as well as the interaction with family during get-togethers.

If you feel anxious and tend to dread the holiday season, take a moment to breathe in deeply and let go of the lower vibration emotions of fear, worry, doubt, regret, guilt, shame, anger, frustration, etc. and breathe in the higher vibration of love. Allow yourself to acknowledge those individuals and situations that are triggers for you as well as those people, places and things that push your buttons, so that you can clear those triggers from affecting you anymore.

Recognize that it is necessary for you to honor yourself and what YOU are feeling, especially during this holiday season. Consciously choose to acknowledge any emotions you are feeling and then release them. You are in control of your thoughts, words, actions, emotions and reactions. You choose how you wish to perceive an experience and how you wish to respond to it. Remember, each individual is having their own unique human life experience.

Here are a few tips to energetically assist you in having a stress-free holiday season:

Tip #1 – Be Present
Focus your energy on being present and in the NOW at this very moment. Allow yourself to become fully aware and completely present right here, right now. Being present involves living in the moment rather than focusing on the future or dwelling in the past. Focus on living, be-ing and breathing in the moment.

Tip #2 – Breathe
Take a moment to breathe in deeply and exhale anyone and anything that no longer serves you. Be mindful of your inhalations and your exhalations. Two to three times a day for 2-3 minutes, take a moment to pause in order to clear your mind and open your heart. Visualize yourself breathing in emerald green healing energy and exhaling the pain, hurt, fear, frustration, worry and doubt. Release it and let it go.

Tip #3 – Ground Your Energy
Grounding your energy keeps you present and in the moment. It completes the energy circuit and anchors your energy to the earth below. Keeping firmly planted energetically helps prevent feelings of fuzziness or spacey-ness that can often disperse your personal energy.

Tip #4 – Center Your Energy
Centering your energy involves finding that calm spot deep inside yourself that is eternal being-ness. Take a few deep breaths and bring awareness inward to the central essence – that place that is peaceful and serene no matter what the external circumstance. Think of the phrase, “Calm, cool and collected” as you exhale and smile.

Tip #5 – Release and Receive
Release feeling obligated to reciprocate when someone gives you a gift. Allow yourself the ability to receive without giving. Honor yourself and what you are feeling, but there is no need to hold onto the feel bad or guilt energy. Simply receive and sincerely say, “Thank you!” If you are the giver, release the expectation that a gift will be reciprocated. Be mindful of the intention behind giving.

Tip #6 – Give the Gift of You
If you typically exchange gifts with a friend, family member or co-worker, you may be guided to do something different this year. Many individuals do purchase what they need when they need it, so you may choose to forgo giving a material gift and instead give the gift of you. Plan an excursion or get together and spend time with someone you love. You may also want to volunteer your time or donate to a favorite charity. Perhaps, you may bake a special treat or create a handmade gift. These thoughtful gifts as well as the gift of your presence is immeasurable and greatly appreciated.

Tip #7 – Express your Gratitude
Gratitude is an expression of thankfulness. The simple words, “thank you,” extend far beyond their utterance. They are an acknowledgement of appreciation. Acknowledging and expressing gratitude for all you are thankful for radiates this energy to the Universe and returns in more blessings.

Honoring yourself during this holiday season will create a ripple effect throughout your life. Rather than isolating yourself, consciously choose to honor yourself. Remember, your mental/emotional well-being is an essential aspect of your physical health.
