3 Instant Steps To Owning Your Energy

It is probably a little strange to think that energy can be “owned” considering energy is everywhere, in everything, accessible and available at any time. Yet, we easily allow our own energy to be imbalanced and shifted depending on our environment.  Work related stress? An unruly coworker? Long commutes? A hard day at home? Do any of these trigger an imbalance in your energy? There are many things in our surroundings and our environments that we cannot control.  HOWEVERRRR, what we can control, is how we respond to these events and situations. What we can control, is our own energy.  We can control how we respond to situations. The next time you find yourself in an event that you feel is starting to shift your energy, try these steps to reign it back into alignment: Assess the vibe of your environment and the vibe of your own energy.  Scan your energy- how are you feeling?  Pay attention to your own body language.  What kind of actions or behaviors are you demonstrating? These are cues and …

step up your manifestation game this weekend with these 3 easy steps

When thinking of universal energy, I always start with these two thoughts: Like attracts like. Energy is in everything and everywhere. 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! This weekend, do these 3 things to help step up your manifestation game using the relentless force and energy of the universe:   Be crystal clear. 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 …

Disconnection from emotions

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 …

Trade pain for peace

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.

{Identity} The story of validation

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 …

{journaling} Facilitating your own healing

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) …
