Journey through Discomfort

Journey through Discomfort

Whenever you’re feeling moments of discomfort,
that means true change is happening for you.
~ John David Washington

We have been taught that life happens outside of our comfort zone or that we grow through challenges, and I do believe that is true. I also believe that the Universe presents us with contrasting experiences, so that we can understand fully what this human life experience is comprised of. If everything feels good and is comfortable, how do we grow?

I recently traveled to Camp Chesterfield in Chesterfield, Indiana, which is a historic spiritual community founded in 1886, to present three workshops. Upon arriving, I immediately discovered that the lodging did not have air conditioning. Much of the United States was experiencing a heat wave, Indiana included!

I inquired about a fan to be told that I would need to purchase one, so I did knowing that some air blowing on me would be better than none. The rooms did have windows that opened and also a ceiling fan, but the ceilings were high, and there was no air moving. I recognized that I was not special nor was I the only person in that situation. However, sleeping in the heat is very challenging, especially when you are not accustomed to it.

I chose to view it as a learning experience and even a test coming from the “spiritual broadcasting system.” As the hours passed and I was alone with myself, I questioned why I was there having this experience and the answer I received was simply put, “because you are.” I was having a meltdown literally and figuratively speaking.

Be not afraid of discomfort. If you can’t put yourself in a situation where you are uncomfortable, then you will never grow.
You will never change. You’ll never learn.
~ Jason Reynolds

Yes, I could have left the grounds and sought another cooler place to stay, but I chose to stay put because I’m not a quitter. When I commit to something, I follow through. My emotions were running high, and I honored each thought and feeling as they arose.

After sleeping just a short time, I decided to get up and walk the grounds before it was daylight. As dawn approached, I felt more at peace with my presence.

A dear friend helped to shift my perspective a few hours later. She had studied there several decades ago and more than likely stayed in the same accommodations. Her response to my “having a meltdown” text was powerful! She conveyed, “Meltdown? Why? Feeling alone? Outside comfort zone? You are strong and a soldier for Spirit and women. [You are] an independent woman with all the strength of the past spiritual seekers on a pilgrimage to explore all that is. This year teaches you the value of both home and travel, and they are both part of the wonderful life of a mystical seeker. Make the most of it as you can. Think of it like a sweat lodge retreat 24 hours a day with weight loss, cleansing and Spirit!”

I smiled and realized she was absolutely right!!!! The next night seemed to be a bit easier. On Sunday, I made the conscious choice to drive back to Indianapolis to stay in an air-conditioned hotel close to the airport, and I am so grateful I did!

Journey with Clarity

Journey with Clarity

When I embarked on this path in 2010, I stated from the beginning that I am not a fortune teller and will not predict your future. In every moment with every choice we are making, our life is continuously changing. Simply put, I choose to empower you rather than dis-empower you!

True intuitive work is to empower and to be of service. ~ Sonia Choquette

Each one of us has the ability to consciously create the reality we desire. Since everything is energy, we must become aware of the energetic emission/radio transmission that we are sending out. This includes becoming aware of our thoughts, words and actions.  Making conscious and empowered choices is essential for our physical health and mental/emotional well-being.

A healer does not heal you. A healer is someone who holds space for you while you awaken your inner healer, so that you may heal yourself. ~ Maryam Hasnaa

Whether you are seeking intuitive guidance, physical healing, life coaching or hoping to connect with a loved one in Spirit, my intention is to assist with validation and clarity, but I also want to encourage you to tune in and connect to the YOU within because all of the answers we seek can be found within if we take the time to listen.

I invite you to join me on this journey into consciousness with optimism, hope and clarity, while feeling loved, valued, appreciated and empowered! ~ Shelly

The Gift of Non-Attachment

The Gift of Non-Attachment

At certain times, many of us may find ourselves having expectations and pre-conceived notions about a relationship, situation or experience. We may even become extremely attached to achieving a specific outcome or the end result. In doing so, we can then become consumed with frustration and disappointment when things didn’t go as planned and ultimately deprive ourselves of something even better.

I’ve learned over time and with much practice the gift of non-attachment to the outcome. Personally speaking, I recently traveled to Atlanta, GA to collaborate with my friend Jacqueline for a workshop and healing event. No one had registered in advance, yet we knew there was the possibility for walk-ins, and we still needed to be there at the designated time.

On the car ride to the event center that morning, we began discussing possibilities while still being very present and allowing. Turns out, no one showed up for the day long workshop. The private sessions I had scheduled for Sunday were able to be rescheduled to Saturday, so Sunday became available for exploration and play.

Synchronistically, the workshop we created to present is titled “Embracing the Magic Within” and focused on the power words of connection, communication and creation. Rather than present it that day, we were both intended to embody and embrace it for ourselves.

Consider this: Upon reflection, when thinking about your own experiences where you have been attached to the outcome, and it didn’t turn out the way you had planned or even hoped, how did you feel? Did you feel disappointed and frustrated? Were you able to move through that energy to embrace the gift that presented itself to you?

Remember, every experience and individual you encounter offers you opportunities for learning and growth. If you are guided to, choose to consciously practice non-attachment to the outcome whenever possible (and it’s always possible). Sometimes, it is necessary to step back from an experience, observe what is happening, allow it to happen and then let go of the outcome. Subsequently, the magic of the moment unfolds as you welcome the gift of non-attachment.

Journey to Restoration

Journey to Restoration

Last Sunday, I attended a breathwork session at H2Oasis Float Center & Tea House. To learn more about breathwork, please read a previous blog titled Journey with Breathwork.

The intended theme for this particular session was “clearing the debris” in preparation for the upcoming session on December 23 titled Breathing in the Light. During the integration process at the conclusion of the breathwork, I felt extremely relaxed and peaceful. During the session itself, I recall lots of energy moving in the solar plexus and hearing the word “restoration” as well as a sense of becoming aware of my energy “pulls” (meaning those people, places and things that pull my energy). I knew clearing was occurring, and it felt gentle yet powerful.

Monday morning I woke up feeling like my energy had been “shaken and stirred.” Everything was triggering me, and I was extremely emotional (literally bawling my eyes out all afternoon). I usually “hold it together,” but there was no holding these emotions in. I typically say, “You have to feel it in order to heal it.” Apparently, the Universe wanted me to take note and honor my own advice.

The last few days I truly feel clearer than I have felt in a long time. According to the Merriam-Webster definition, restoration is “the action of returning something to a former owner, place, or condition.” Restoration feels like coming back to me – to wholeness and fullness.

Perhaps as we are wrapping up the final days of 2018, you may be guided to become more aware of your energy “pulls” and begin the process of coming back to you as well!

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 without Judgment

Journey without Judgment

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.

As always, I like to clarify what I am referring to. According to Merriam-Webster.com., judgment is defined as “the process of forming an opinion or evaluation by discerning and comparing; the capacity for judging; a formal utterance of an authoritative opinion.” Criticism is defined as “the act of criticizing usually unfavorably; a critical observation or remark.”

Words are power. They have the ability to hurt or to heal. I’m “old school” in that I believe if you can’t say something nice, then don’t say anything at all as well as don’t give your opinion unless it is asked for.

Recent experiences and interactions prompted me to write this blog. I do my best to be an observer and even become conscious of when I am being a bit “judgy,” whether it is of myself or others. After packing my suitcase for a trip, I opted to weigh it to make sure that I was within airline weight limits. I weighed myself, so that I could weigh again holding the suitcase. The numbers on the scale reflected a number much higher than I desired them to be. I immediately began judging myself based on those numbers. Realizing the self-talk was ridiculous, I stopped berating myself and recognized I could do something to reduce the number it reflected or continue to be in a place of judgment.

After speaking recently at Unity of Fayetteville, I had two separate people approach me after the service saying they wished I had delivered a message that was less structured and more from the heart. Prior to their comments and even after, I had several people convey to me that they loved the message, and it touched them. I recognize people have their own perspective, and I can’t please everyone most of the time.

With that said, do your best to live your life fully with no regret. Speak from the heart. Be present in the moment. Stop judging (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.
