I had the extreme pleasure of joining Sunny Dawn Johnston for a conscious conversation on Off the Cuff with SDJ. We covered a gamut of topics, including conscious creation.

2020 has offered its share of challenges, including those related to environment, weather, health and financial. In addition to these challenges, the holiday season can already 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. With the health concerns, many are also worried about gathering with those they love.
If you feel anxious and tend to dread the holiday season, take a moment to breathe in deeply and let go of the lower and heavier vibrational 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.
When you notice a tightness in your jawline and recognize that you may grind your teeth or clench your jaws, this can be an indication of holding in the frustrations. It may also mean that there are words you are not expressing. It could also just mean that you are stressed, or perhaps, it is all of the above. If you realize that you are not expressing yourself fully, you may be guided to at least say what you need to telepathically/energetically if you feel that you are unable to verbalize the words at that time.
In those instances that you feel annoyed, bothered or triggered, in that moment state aloud or in your mind, “This bothers me. This is affecting me. I feel annoyed.” Express whatever wordage that would apply. In doing so, you are choosing to clear the energy in that moment rather than allowing it to build.
Recognize that it is absolutely necessary for you to honor yourself and what YOU are feeling, especially during the 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.
Ways to Reduce Stress
Here are a few tips to energetically assist you in having a stress-free holiday season or simply assist with reducing stress:
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.
Tip #2 – Breathe
Take a moment to breathe in deeply and exhale anyone and anything that no longer serves you (is good for you). We breathe naturally and autonomously. This is a reminder to breathe consciously.
Tip #3 – Ground Your Energy
Grounding your energy keeps you present and in the moment. Keeping firmly planted energetically helps prevent feelings of fuzziness or spacey-ness that can often disperse your personal energy. Staying hydrated and visualizing your legs as tree roots growing deep into the earth are simple ways to ground your energy.
Tip #4 – Center Your Energy
Centering your energy involves finding that calm spot deep inside yourself that is eternal being-ness. By centering your energy, you are able to more easily attain the peace within. In doing so, you are more likely to respond rather than react to your external circumstances.
Tip #5 – Release and Receive
Release feeling obligated to reciprocate when someone gives you a gift. Allow yourself the ability to receive without giving. 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.
Tip #7 – Express your Gratitude
Acknowledging and expressing gratitude for all you are thankful for radiates this energy out into the universe and returns in more blessings.
Honoring yourself every day and not just during the 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 a key aspect of your physical health. Consciously choose to journey into this holiday season with ease and peace.

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!

Globally, we are experiencing a lot of heavy, fear-based energy due to health-related concerns. Each one of us needs to do our best to be present, stay calm and attain the peace within. It is essential that we do our best to shift from the vibration of fear to knowing the “social distancing” is a wonderful opportunity for introspection, self-reflection, self-care and self-love rather than see it as a negative.
