Journey with Inspiration

Journey with Inspiration

Spirit (also can be referred to as our angels, guides, Consciousness, Source, God and the Universe) continually provides us with numerous messages to assist us on our journey into consciousness. Guidance and inspiration will flow to us and through us, so that we can assist others on their journey as well.

There is a universal, intelligent, life force that exists within everyone and everything.
It resides within each one of us as a deep wisdom, an inner knowing.
~ Shakti Gawain

According to Google dictionary, inspiration is “the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative; a sudden brilliant, creative, or timely idea.”

Rather than put my “thinking cap” on, I prefer to get in the flow and put my “inspiration cap” on. Taking action on what flows to us sends the message that we are serious when it comes to creating consciously.

Feeling immensely inspired, I labored on a project over Labor Day weekend 2019. After investing 50+ hours over the weekend, I went to place the order for the mini picture book I created and there was a glitch with their program. Twenty of the 44 pages I created had disappeared and were blank. I called the company first thing the next morning to learn that those pages would need to be recreated. Initially, I was upset that all of my time, energy and inspiration had seemingly gone to waste. Then, I had a vision of the monks creating a sand mandala only to be destroyed upon completion to convey the message of impermanence — that everything is changing and nothing is permanent.

This experience didn’t deter me at all. Early December, I received the message that it was time to move forward with a book. After writing it, I let it simmer for a bit because it felt ho-hum and not “good enough.” I realized I needed to practice the pause, embrace the magic within and get in the flow of inspiration.

Plus, I had to really shift some energy around my viewpoint of it not being good enough. As humans, I realize we periodically have those thoughts – Am I good enough? Is what I have to offer good enough? Is what I have to say good enough? Is what I have written good enough? Realistically, the impression of “good enough” is based on perception and comparison to another.

Put your own inspiration cap on and let the inspiration flow. See what comes to you and moves through you. Remember, it is up to you to take action.

*I should mention that my new book, Embracing the Magic Within, and accompanying Clarity Cards are forthcoming! Release date to be announced soon!

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 Support

Journey with Support

marcelproustquote

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners
who make our souls blossom
. ~ Marcel Proust

We are not alone on this journey…

Every human being desires to not only feel loved, but to give love as well. It is innate within each one of us to want to connect with others, to want to be open and to live an authentic life. We want to love and to be loved in return. Expressing love and sharing kindness takes such a small effort, yet has an enormous effect. This ripple of love surpasses anything anyone could imagine if they would simply allow this love to come in. There is an essential need for people to grow together, support one another and walk together as both human companions and soul companions.

Recognizing your connection to those people who are in your life today will assist you in understanding the important roles we play in each other’s lives. Please remember though to not compare your journey to anyone else’s journey as we are all having our own unique human life experiences. As fellow travelers on this journey into consciousness, let’s be happy for one another, celebrate the accomplishments and be supportive during the challenging times.

Personally speaking, I’ve had relationships with both friends and colleagues shift and change. It isn’t a bad thing per se, it just happens. My true friends know that I am always a phone call, text or email away if they need me. Some of my friends I am in daily contact with. Others, there may be days, weeks and even months that go by with very little contact, yet once we do talk; it’s as if no time has passed. To me, that is what true friendship is all about.

Some people feel hurt and neglected if they have friends who aren’t “daily connection” friends. When you feel this way, honor yourself and what you are feeling and then ask yourself a few questions. Have you reached out to those friends in your life? Have you let them know that you miss them or that you need them? Have you been the kind of friend to them that you want them to be? Friendship is most definitely a 2-way street.

Ultimately, we are here to support, encourage and love one another for this human life experience.

Faith is Everything

Faith is Everything

Faith is believing that the outcome will be what it should be, no matter what it is.
~ Colette Baron-Reid

First of all, please know that my intention for sharing this experience is purely to express what I learned, and it is not to be malicious or cause harm to anyone. For the interest of privacy, I have not named names or places as it does not add to or take away from the story itself.

The event I will be referring to was initially scheduled in early February and was to be held in early April. I had been corresponding with one of the co-owners of the space, but not the other. I asked several times as I had a feeling the other co-owner would not be receptive to a Messages from Spirit gallery reading event due to her faith. I was assured that it was not a problem.

Advertising for this event began as soon as it was confirmed and included postcards and flyers distributed to various locations via numerous friends, Facebook, Twitter, website, blog, constant contact mailing and via my radio show. 10 advance tickets were sold, yet tickets were also to be sold at the door (the actual amount of tickets possibly sold are an unknown variable).

A colleague flew in from New York to join me for the event and also work the Spirit Fair that weekend. We had visited the space twice earlier in the day. I received a call from the event manager at 3:40 pm just as I was preparing to leave the hotel. He indicated the space was double booked, which did not make sense to me, so I asked him to please tell me the truth in regards to this situation to which he stated religious beliefs/faith. He offered an additional venue, but it would have required rerouting the attendees. After discussing the viability of this option, we decided it would be best energetically to not do that.

Personally speaking, I was in complete shock when I received the call even though I had the knowingness from the beginning that the other co-owner would not be receptive. This is the first time this type of experience has happened to me, and I do feel discriminated against to a degree. I do honor and respect other individual’s personal and religious beliefs, and I do make a conscious effort to not make anyone purposefully uncomfortable.

With that being said, the Universe provided me with many lessons that night:

  1. Everything always happens for a reason.
  2. You cannot control what is beyond your control.
  3. Faith is huge – both religiously speaking and spiritually speaking.
  4. Don’t take things personally.
  5. ALWAYS see the blessings within the challenges.
  6. Definitely honor and feel your emotions (Yes, that night was quite an emotional rollercoaster!)

The blessings within the challenge allowed my colleague and I to have a nice dinner and conscious conversation, of which we probably would not have had time for. The Universe via the restaurant blessed us with a free dinner since they had issues with our meal. We were rested and worked the Spirit fair that weekend. Lastly, I was able to learn how to handle an experience such as this. If my colleague had not been a part of it and taken charge of the situation, I would have taken ownership of what was beyond my control and done what I could to make it right that evening.

As I’ve stated before, there are two ways to view everything – through the eyes of love and through the eyes of fear. Love is a heart-spaced higher vibrational energy; whereas fear comprises every emotion that is not love, including worry, fear, doubt, regret, guilt, shame, frustration and so on. Choosing to stay in the heart-space and see every individual and experience through the Higher vibration of love is essential for our journey into consciousness. Having the courage to express your beliefs to others and not being afraid of what they might think involves faith and fortitude. In addition, having the courage to honor another individual’s faith and beliefs is equally essential.

What’s faith have to do with it? Everything!

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.

shinelight

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.
