When thinking of universal energy, I always start with these two thoughts:
Are we taking full advantage of this energy and magic that is available to us all day, every day? This vibrant force that is on our side to help us heal, connect, ascend and manifest all we desire??
I feel safe saying that most of us don’t. The good news is, it can stop today!
No wishy-washy nonsense when you are asking for what you want. Now is not the time to be shy or humble. State exactly what you want, how you want it and when you would like to have it.
Example: I don’t just want a car. I want a freshly painted light blue, 1969 Volkswagen mini bus, for my price range of $12,000 and I want it in time for my Fall road trip across America.
The universe doesn’t mess around, it matches exactly what you ask of it, so be super clear and concise.
Which means its important to….
2. Be positive.
Remember, energy is everything and everywhere, including our thoughts! Our thoughts hold vibration. So if we thing negative, low vibrating thoughts, the universe matches it with negative, low vibrating things. If we thing, fun, high vibrating thoughts, the universe will deliver fun, high vibrating things.
It’s as simple as that, right? Um, No, it’s actually not. Even Miss Positivity over here can have a bad day here and there and kick the dirt on my way home. So this is what you gotta do: Anytime you catch yourself starting to think or speak negatively, immediately say “STOP. Change the vibration, man” and choose to rephrase that exact thought or phrase in a more positive light.
“I only have $8,000 saved and this road trip is 1 month away. I’m never going to get another $4,000 by then.”
Stop. Change the vibration, man.
“I only have $8,000 saved and this road trip is 1 month away. How can I get this bus on time? (pick up a few shifts, borrow money, look for the same bus in another state that might be selling it cheaper)
Not only did we change the vibration of our thoughts, but it also forced us to be more proactive. Movement and momentum is key for raising the vibration.
3. Repeat your request.
It’s not a “one and done” deal. You have to be consistent with your actions and energy of your thoughts.
Besides going out there and actually earning the moolah for the bus, find different ways to send your vibrating thoughts to the universe.
This is where vision boards really come in handy. You slap that bad boy on a wall or high trafficking area in your home and your subconscious picks up on those images. It’s constantly on your mind and the universe picks up on those subtle frequencies as well.
Grab a journal and write while daydreaming about your days cruising on the open road chasing sunsets. Where will you stop? What does the view look like? What snacks will you have on hand? This is FUN! And the universe responds to fun very quickly.
Affirmations are a wonderful tool for raising the vibration of your thoughts.
example: “this country is free for me to drive and explore and honor its beauty. I am grateful for this opportunity to be adventurous in my dream car, that I have earned and deserve to have.”
Repeat these actions, everyday, multiple times per day. Remember , the universe does NOT differentiate between the energy of your thoughts towards what you already have and the energy of your thoughts towards what you envision having.
Dream big. Repeat.
“I am a spirit having a human experience and I’m here to get closer to love” – The Universe Has Your Back
This is deep! I’m rolling with it, here we go…
A few months ago, I was guided to read about the Ascended Masters. I was hesitant at first, because death has always been an uncomfortable subject for me. However, after reading a book about Ascended Masters, it gave me more clarity about ourselves as humans and as souls.
What I have come to learn and believe is that we are all infinite souls. Souls made up of star dust and unconditional love and light. We choose to have experiences as humans to help us learn, grow and ascend. If we are lucky, we can become connected to this message and lesson very early on in life…but I guess that would be too easy, haha!
Without tests, hurdles and barriers, we wouldn’t be able to see where we need to grow and learn, so as souls, we can ascend into high planes of the magical universe. Ultimately, its love that helps us learn, grow, help and heal. Love truly is the answer to all problems.
And as a spiritual soul, all we are trying to do is get closer to love and fulfill our mission in this lifetime.
When we turn off our abilities to feel certain emotions, we don’t have the privilege to select which emotions we want to turn off, ignore, and hide from.
When we turn off our connection with one or a few select emotions, we actually end up turning off our connection with ALL emotions and feelings – the good, bad and the ugly.
Further more, on a spiritual level, it prevents us from receiving any type of messages, intuitive downloads and communication from our spirit guides, angels and our own intuition.
How are we supposed to be guided by our own intuition if we can’t even allow ourselves to tune it and feel anything?
You know what you gotta do right? You gotta feel it to heal it.
Feel all the feels.
Allow yourself to feel vulnerable and surrender to the lessons and messages those memories and emotions are trying to teach you.
*note: If the feelings you are trying to avoid/ignore are triggered by a past trauma, then I encourage you to seek the appropriate help to assist you in healing from these memories. This healing should not be done alone. It can get dark and scary and its important to have support to ground you and nurture you.
Once we start embracing all of our feelings, including the “dark and ugly”, we can open up our channels to feel and heal ALL feelings and emotions.
We become reconnected to our truth, our intuition, and our Source of magic.
Beautiful shifts start to occur because you are now able to make decisions that serve your own greater good, because you are guided by and trust your intuition and gut feelings.
I am doing a thing.
In an effort to increase of awareness of the bountiful , limitless energy of the universe that is available to EVERYONE, I would like to share quotes, stories and insights every Monday, in hopes that in motivates and inspires you all to embrace the magic and endless possibilities that is, universal energy and law of attraction.
Today’s Manifest Monday is brought to you by Gabby Bernstein. She says…
“Obstacles are detours in the right direction”
How often do we view a set back, an obstacle, a refusal, as something not going your way.
How often do we experience these situations and think that said end goal “was never meant to be” or was just “too hard to attain”.
Do we ever stop, think to ourselves and accept that these barriers and obstacles were MEANT to happen?
We all must trust that the universe is always on our side. Its always guiding us to the path that was destined for us. These obstacles were not put in our place because we don’t deserve the end result…. they were put in our place because that end result was never planned for us to begin with.
We experience obstacles and barriers, so we can continue to go down the road of our own journey that serves our greater good and was destined for us.
Forgiveness can be a hard pill to swallow.
Regardless of any wrong doing and actions that have caused us nothing but pain and trauma, do you really think holding on to that energy is going to benefit you and allow you to move on peacefully?
It’s time to use that big ‘ol F word…forgiveness.
Not necessarily forgiving the person or the action, not unless it feels right for you, of course. We are being called to seek forgiveness for the benefit and well being of your heart and mind. You get to create a conduit of love and light to fill your heart, mind and soul. You replace toxic, unfavorable, angry, sad and betrayed energy for love, peace and light.
Release the pain that no longer serves you, and you choose to replace it with love, light and forgiveness.
Trade pain for peace.
Change the vibration of your energy and watch a beautiful manifest life unfold from here on out.
When it comes to ultimate manifestation and living your true purpose in life, I believe that deep energy healing and universal energy (like law of attraction) go hand in hand.
If you are not connected to your truth and purpose, and your life is not going exactly to plan, its possible you are missing at least one, or maybe both of these magical modalities for living an epic life.
Deep energy healing (think kundalini, past life regressions, reiki, releasing emotional trauma, etc) helps move and remove the energy of those stories that have been stuck in any of the layers of your Aura. This is essential, if you cannot seem to get past a barrier in life.
For example, I’ve been wanting to be an entrepreneur for a while. I’ve done so many side jobs but never felt passionate about them, and I wouldn’t succeed very long after I started. I would blame it on the lack of connection to my purpose and passion in life. I finally received some beautiful business coaching that allowed me to connect to my passion and purpose, but guess what, when it was time to accept the fact that I can finally be successful, doing what I loved- I panicked! How could I still have doubts?
Turns out, doubt wasn’t the issue – it was fear. Fear of success. It was also feeling like I did not deserve this success. I did not feel worthy. This was a huge red flag for my business spiritual coach, and we delved right into that story so I could heal it and release it. Turns out money and stories about money has always been a topic in my childhood, and I was never really good at saving it either, once I entered my young adult years. It was always referred to something that was scarce, or lacking in my life.
I could have prayed, meditated, and had a vision board the size of a Times Square billboard with all of my hopes and dreams as a successful entrepreneur, but all of that would not have made a big impact, because I was holding onto my past negative stories around money.
Just tonight, I released a story that must have taken place in one of my past lives. It can be deep rooted and nestled into our aura, but it doesn’t mean it has to stay there.
It does not mean it defines us.
We can heal and release that story/barrier, and then make room for new stories and positive energy.
Which then leads the perfect pathway for vision boards, affirmations and rituals. The stories are no longer serving as an energetic barrier. That barrier is gone and your aura is an open highway for magical, wonderful, epic sh*t! Yeah!
So be mindful that both concepts are very powerful, but sometimes we gotta do that extra digging deep, healing and releasing to fully ignite your manifesting potential.
You are playing small, and this is your permission to stop that shit!
Since the day you were born, you have been destined for a life of growth, learning, fun and love.
This life is meant to be enjoyed and fulfilled as you see fit. You were born for greatness. So stop playing small because you are bigger than what you think you are.
Stop wasting time making decisions that do not serve your greater good and that make you feel weak or unworthy.
Decisions that kill your confidence and self esteem.
We keep ourselves small because we are fearful. We are fearful of old patterns and stories , and the ego holds on to those stories to keep us small and safe.
When we stay small, we live our lives with very little connection to our purpose and intuition. We live our days not honoring our true path and destiny in life. We do not honor our life purpose and we rob ourselves of a lot of experiences that serve our greater good.
So let’s put an end to this nonsense and lets do the work-ask yourself these questions and sit down with pen and paper…
Why am I playing small? Why am I keeping myself small? What am I afraid of? Which are the stories and old patterns that are holding be back?
Write and keep writing.
Start writing for five minutes and if you want to write more, go for it! as long as you need. until your hand hurts. dig deep and uncover these stories and then release them.
Say a little prayer to Archangel Raphael to assist you in the healing and releasing of these stories-
“Archangel Raphael, please be present with me as I acknowledge, honor, release and heal my past stories and patters that have kept me small and fearful. These stories do not serve my greater good and I need them healed and released. Please assist me in this healing process. Thank you.”
Be extra kind to yourself after you do some heavy journaling. Drink lots of water, eat nourishing foods and ground yourself as needed. This is when a little extra TLC is appreciated 🙂
Rise up and shine bright, my brothers and sisters.
Certifications, job promotions and titles.
I have achieved these over and over again.
All the while, never really asking myself if it was what I really wanted.
It felt good to achieve these goals and feel successful, but what I have soon realized was that it was never out of passion. I just knew it was good to achieve them . It looked good to achieve them. It made me feel validated.
I never realized it then, but validation was something I craved. I needed it to feel like I mattered.
It was my way of proving to those around me that I was here. I was valuable. I was present. I had purpose. I am worthy. I matter.
Once I realized this pattern, I knew it was important to figure out when it started and how it even came about. I could trace this need for validation as far back as I can remember. In our traditional Hispanic culture, the voices, ideas and thoughts of children are merely celebrated. This is most evident if said child was first generation American (me!).
My parents worked tooth and nail to survive in a country that was new in all things language and culture. Growing up, their main concerns were caring for their siblings and making sure there was dinner available. Cut to 25 years later and having a 7 year old daughter tell them that she didn’t appreciate the way she was yelled at in front of her family earlier that day, because it felt embarrassing and condescending.
I’m pretty sure their response was something along the lines of “I’ll show you condescending…(while grabbing the nearest ‘chankla’ [sandal])” Haha.
My parents loved us unconditionally. They provided a life to live wanting nothing that wasn’t essential. They tried their dang hardest to understand American culture while raising myself and my sister. However, patterns are hard to change, especially if one is unaware of them.
No matter how hard I pleaded, raised my voice and stomped my feet, I couldn’t get the validation of my thoughts and feelings that I was striving for, and it left me feeling frustrated, and a tad insignificant. These experiences and memories have changed the course of my life through habits and patterns that constantly sought out validation and praise.
When I was finally able to trace back the source of my habits and patterns to my childhood memories, it was the best “ureka” moment. First and foremost, I developed compassion for my parents because I knew in my heart that they only did nothing short of their best to raise my sister and I. Secondly, I was finally able to start healing those wounds and start changing my current habits and patterns.
Moving forward, I only choose to do things that ignite my passion and soul. Things that give me chills with excitement. Things that are FUN! I am making decisions because they genuinely make me happy, and not because I feel as though I need to prove something or receive validation for my efforts.
I encourage you to open up.
Allow yourself to feel safe to go back to those hurtful, shameful memories that have been dictating your life decisions. Feel safe to go back to your roots so you can heal from them , offer closure spiritually, so that you can change the energy of your thoughts and habits, and then your physical, mental and emotional health can follow and thrive.
Allow yourself to feel and heal and watch the magic happen.
Digging deep and opening up room in your heart for healing and growth can feel overwhelming and emotional. It’s important to have a grounding routine and support system through your healing journey.
I have created a sacred, women’s only Facebook group, as a way to hold space for vibrant women who are reconnecting to their true identity and purpose and life. For women who are reclaiming their power and are ready to do epic sh*t.
I invite you to join our sisterhood where we raise our own vibrations.
Being an introvert does not mean you have to play small.
You don’t have to be loud or aggressive to get what you want in life. You just need to be true to you.
There was a time when I didn’t think that was true. I would see people come into a room and simply dominate it. People would hang on their word, give them positive attention and appreciate their presence. I used to think that by coming in strong and loud, that could warrant the attention and respect. Funny how it never worked out for me that way when I gave it a whirl here and there (to make matters worse, I am an introvert through and through). Forcing myself to appear big, loud and obvious made me feel phony and disconnected. I hated every minute of being in an environment where I felt I had to try to be someone that I knew I wasn’t.
What I didn’t realize then was that those people didn’t attract attention by the decibel in which they spoke, or the clever jokes and conversations they would have, they attracted the attention because of their energy. They were true to themselves regardless of the environment. They were showing up as themselves. Their true, authentic selves.
So regardless of your personality trait, your social environment or your hobbies, please know that its how you show up that attracts what you desire in life.
You can still be your introvert self and still be able to manifest all that you want.
Ditch the thought that you need to be someone that you know you are not. Sure extroverts get more attention easily, but it really all comes down to energy. Have you ever met an extrovert that was not being true to themselves? Instead they came from a place of insecurity and threat, and that would typically make them come off being annoying, rude and desperate. Energy is everything. It can ignite a room. So if you are coming into a room with an energy of discomfort, insecurity and desperation, your company is going to feel it too. Regardless of our personality.
Being authentic is the strongest tool you can posses to reap what you want and deserve.
You have heard of the phrase “your vibe attracts your tribe”, right? Be true to you, and your authenticity will shine through your energy and aura. As per law of attraction, “like attracts like”, so sit back and watch your energy become a magnet to your desires.
As an introvert, you don’t have to step out of your comfort zone and be someone you are not. Simply be clear on who you are and what you want. Stay true to who you are and don’t settle or back down. If your energy is authentic, your energy is loud and clear.
Relationships, business, job opportunities, friendships, etc.. .you can manifest all that good stuff, as long as you stay true to yourself and your authenticity.
I am commiting myself to helping women become reconnected to their true, authentic selves. To become empowered to live their life that serves their own greater good. To learn how to trust and be guided by their intuition and be their own guru.
I have created a sacred facebook group that raises the vibration of womanhood and sisterhood. We talk all things self love, empowerment and reconnecting to your true authentic self.
I guide women to become reconnected to their true purpose in life and how to be guided by their intuition. If you love the idea of becoming part of a sisterhood that thrives in this type of energy, I invite you to join us: RAISE THE VIBRATION NATION
The more I keep hearing “Be your own guru”, the more it continues to resonate with me. Hard. Who better knows what is best for you than….you?! Sounds like a no brainer, right? However, if you are or were anything like I was for the past two decades, you might feel as though this concept was unreachable. Foreign, even.
I had very little connection to my true identity and purpose. All I knew was that I had very little self confidence, and seeking approval and validation from others made me feel better. I based my life decisions and behaviors based on that. A total people pleaser, which is really just a nice way to say “a total pushover”. Man I used to get so mad when people would call me a pushover, but that is what I was because I didn’t know anything else. So how could I have possibly become my own guru if I didn’t even know who the heck I was?!
It has taken A LOT of deep healing, soul searching and digging deep to uncover my purpose and truly embrace my own identity. I am gradually becoming my own guru and it is the most empowering feeling!
I have learned to really become tuned into all of my energies – the good, the bad, the anxious, etc.. I sit with these feelings and I try to find the source of the imbalances. I am learning to not only trust my intuition, but to also let it GUIDE me in all of my life decisions and behaviors. I get to call the shots, because only I know what is best for me. Not society. Not my parents or my friends.
And how beautiful it is to be guided by unconditional love from our spirit friends, so strong and caring that our intuition can pick up that energy so easily. Its just really up to us to be connected to that energy – that feeling of unconditional love. That feeling of just knowing that this is the right choice, the right path, the right thing to do, and going with that gut feeling, because your intuition will never lead you wrong. Your spirit guides will never lead you wrong. They only want the best for you – they only want to guide you down your destined path, and you can tune into that guidance by your intuition.
I encourage you to embrace becoming your own guru. Be your own expert. Tune into your energies and honor what it is trying to tell you. Do what you KNOW is the right thing for yourself. Be yourself and put yourself first, without apologies or explanation.
Only YOU know what is best for you. You are your own expert. You are your own guru.
What does being your own guru mean to you? What are some barriers that might be keeping you from becoming YOUR OWN expert?
I have been a bit quiet with my writing and for once its not because I am afraid to share my voice.
I have started my deep energy healing full throttle since January, and it is STILL going strong. As I continue to journal, meditate and grow, it feels as though I am peeling off a new layer of my true, authentic self. A part of me I never knew existed. It’s like I am meeting this new part of me for the first time, and learning that we are going to be life long friends. I want to get to know this new part of me. Be kind. Smile. Ask questions. I want to get to know her reaction to certain situations. I am learning how she grounds herself when shit gets stressful. I am loving every moment of watching her walk tall, proud and confident. It brings me the most immense pride seeing her act upon her intuition and gut instinct, instead of what she thought was the “right thing to do”. I love this new part of me, that isn’t really new. It was just buried. Covered.
You see, I never really truly embraced my authentic self. I was always too concerned about what everyone else was thinking, and was too busy being a people pleaser. I had a hard time putting myself first, speaking my truth, and owning my identity. Since I started my deep energy healing journey, I have been learning more about myself than in my 30+ years of life.
It’s fun! I am enjoying the process. Kinda like trying on the perfect pair of shoes, haha.
This weekend I had my Reiki 2 attunement. I cannot wait to start serving as a healing vessel for this world. I am immersing myself in all things chakra balancing, energy healing, channeling and third eye development. This journey feels like it was mine all along, because it WAS mine all along. I’m so happy I am listening to my gut and doing what feels right for me.
I have been doing some deep channeled writing and automatic journaling. I am excited to continue to share words of love, healing and light. Our world needs it.
I always used to be obsessed with journals. I guess it was the universe’s way to tell me to start writing down my thoughts and feelings on paper so I can facilitate my own healing. However, I would never write in them. I would probably fill out a page, at most, but then leave it at that. I couldn’t even re-gift it if I wanted to because I had already used one sad, lonely page. Yet the collection of journals continue to grow. For the past three months I have been undergoing some deep energy healing and it was benefited me tremendously, but nonetheless it’s still scary and doesn’t feel good, and I can’t help but wonder if that’s why I never wrote in all of those journals I have collected over the years. I think I just never really wanted to come face to face with my wounds and hurt from the past.
Alas, I’m a little more than halfway through my first REAL journal (read: committed to writing more than just one page) and I’m almost feeling a little sad thinking about the time where I’m finished with it and I need to move onto a new one. It is help me so much to come into light, facilitate my own healing, and really discover and uncover what has been brewing underneath and dictating all of my feelings, actions and life decisions thus far.
i’ve been able to receive clarity in my purpose in life, my passions and what really fuels my soul. I’ve been able to uncover all those old patterns and limiting beliefs that have been ingrained into my energy and my aura.
If you find yourself wanting to use journaling as a means to facilitate your healing and reflect, I advise the following:
Embrace it. Don’t be afraid of your thoughts and feelings. If they start to feel icky, fearful and uncomfortable, then there is a reason for that, and burying/ignoring those feelings and thoughts is not going to do you any favors. They will continue to reside underneath the surface and dictate your emotions, feelings, and life.
Feel all the feels. “You have to feel it, in order to heal it”. Sit with these thoughts and feelings. Acknowledge the emotions that come with it. Honor them. Its part of the healing process. If you have to cry, do it. If you want to punch pillows, go nuts (make sure it’s an ugly one). If you want to scream, get angry or resentful, feel it baby! Its alll part of the healing process and we need to feel all of these feels in order to heal. Make sure you are extra kind to yourself these days. Get pampered, drink nourishing teas, adorn yourself in comforting clothes and blankets. Watch feel good movies. Trust in someone to talk about it all. Get reiki healing. Make an appointment with your therapist. Take care of you!
My favorite part about journaling: you can reflect. I love looking back a few weeks ago, or even months ago, and seeing where I was at that moment. I love seeing patterns in my thoughts that repeat entry after entry. Its my best way to gain clarity with what I am truly experiencing and feeling. Bonus: its a great way to write down some of your best ideas and have a moment of “dayum- I’m a freakin’ genius!”.
If you have a hard time journaling or don’t know how to start I recommend putting time aside for just 5 minutes in a quiet space. Just start writing what ever is on your mind- seriously, start anywhere, and just keep writing. Don’t stop. Even if you go on tangents, even if your thoughts are scattered- don’t judge, and just keep on writing. Eventually you will see that your subconscious thoughts will start to peek through, and you may find yourself writing about things you didn’t even know you felt or were thinking.
Also, feel free to use prompts, like questions or statements. “What made your eyes sparkle when you were younger?” “Choose 3 things you would like to accomplish this year.” Like I said before, just starting writing your responses to these prompts without judgement. Let that pen and your thoughts flow in unison and uncover the truth to many of your own questions.
