Do you ever have days where your energy just feels sluggish, like you’re sinking in quicksand, and before you know it your entire world feels “stuck”… for no apparent reason? It’s like no amount of coffee can kick-start your awesomeness?
When this happened to me, I used to think it was Mercury Retrograde, that time of the month, planetary alignments or a myriad of other things where everything just went sideways leaving me feeling overwhelmed, discouraged and not wanting to go outside.
Often, I would envision crawling back into bed, for an undetermined amount of time, and not leaving until the storm passed by!
But, life doesn’t stop, kids need you, your business needs you and countless other things that demand your attention and time need you.
When I feel stuck energetically it’s often the result of:
• Something I haven’t acknowledged
• Family drama
• Allowing myself to be distracted or pulled off course
• Beating myself up for forgetting something or messing up
• Hidden Resentments
• Energetically entangled (when people energetically, often unknowingly, hook into our energy and on some level we are allowing them to)
And most, if not all, of these choices we make are unconscious.
Let’s take energetic entanglement as an example…
You meet a friend for lunch and she’s going through a painful divorce. At the end of your time together, you feel drained, angry or frustrated, perfectly mirroring her energy. Chances are your friend has ‘hooked’ into your energy. Or, you may work in a busy office dealing with countless people, phone calls and clients each day. The same energetic entanglement can happen there.
I know for myself, running my own business, volunteering at my daughter's school and working with clients each week, there can be a great deal of energy floating around in my world.
Just to be clear, this energy isn’t coming from a bad place and there isn’t anyone trying to put a hex or spell on you… although some people CAN send toxic energy your way.
(Someone popped into your mind didn’t they?!)
In order to clear away all the energies that are not yours, that do not add value to your world, and come back to who you really are, it’s important to cleanse your energy daily. You may even feel guided to do this cleansing at different times throughout your day if things are more intense for you.
The following is a prayer that is going to clear your energy, ensuring that only your frequency is around you and will bring back your clarity to focus on what lights you up and help you make a conscious choice to not take on energies that are not yours.
Understand that we pick up so many thoughts, feelings and emotions that do not belong to us and I want to reassure you that you are not alone, we all pick up on the people and different energies around us. Utilizing this easy technique, you will feel the energy shift and start to discern each thought, feeling and emotion that doesn’t belong to you.
This technique is a must-do for me and I invite you to try it for yourself.
Repeat the following silently or out loud:
Dear Source (Universe, Creator, God)…
I ask that every thought, feeling, resentment, attachment, judgement, conclusion and anything else I haven’t mentioned that is not mine, that is not 100% Divine in nature, be cleared and released from my energy in all ways, spaces, time and realities with ease and grace.
Please fill every cell, molecule and space in between with your divine light and love. As I breathe in this light and love, I begin to emit this energy to the world around me. I choose to no longer engage in any attachment that does not bring me into my highest potential of consciousness and possibilities. My energy now glows at the highest vibration of love, gratitude and abundance.
Thank you, it is done, Amen.
This is an amazing tool to use as soon as you can’t really get a handle on why your sense of flow and accomplishment has diminished. With practice you'll get to a place where you'll instantly know if something isn't yours and you'll be able to energetically - kick it out - and get on with your amazing life.
I invite you to practice this technique every day for 7 days and see what happens for you!
Sending so much love,
It’s time for renewal and realignment!
This Full Moon in Scorpio is a wonderful time to transform from within. You’ll know when Scorpio’s influence is at play in your world – some of your ideas or thoughts may seem off-the-wall, you could feel highly emotional (perhaps even irritable), and vivid dreams that seem so real you could touch them. Are you feeling it? Even animals and children can feel the different energies. I know our cat Midnight can as he’s been running around the house non-stop for days!
This Scorpio Full Moon brings with it so many gifts. Anything that is buried beneath the surface will start to appear, giving you the opportunity to take an honest look at what’s working in your world and what needs to change. Scorpio gently nudges us to look at any areas where we may be hiding our greatness or vulnerability, serving others in a way that isn’t supporting who we are or relationship beliefs that no longer serve us.
Tips to maneuver this Full Moon in Scorpio
1. Give your body any additional support it requires from extra rest, to more water or protein. Listen to your body as you shift and change during this time. Sometimes our bodies can have a hard time keeping up to all of the energy and it’s important to slow down from time to time.
2. Stay grounded. Imagine roots traveling from the bottom of your feet into the heart of mother earth, strengthening your connection to her and allowing her to nurture you.
3. Give yourself time to journal, dream or reflect on what’s showing up for you. An amazing tool I have to share – whenever you get stuck, and we all do, is ask:
What am I not being in allowance of with this?
This question will help to bring up any residue or anything you may have kept in the outer reaches of your mind. Sometimes we receive guidance immediately and other times it takes a bit longer for the information to download. Keep asking and know that when you are truly ready to choose a new way of being, the Universe will always meet you halfway.
Trust the process and give yourself time to adjust or let go of anything keeping you in the same out-dated patterns and cycles so you can move on with your life and be the truly amazing light worker you are here to be!
Spirit or Ego? How to Know Which is Speaking to You
You’ve made a choice to have something show up in your world and now that thing [house / yoga retreat / vacation / investment opportunity] shows up, just like magic. It’s like you waved a magic wand and here it is.
Your mind starts to go over the financial or time commitments, that are just outside your comfort zone, and you start to re-think your choice.
You feel like you were SO sure, and now you’re not so sure.
Or how about something like this?
When your admin assistant showed up, they were perfect for your business. Fast forward a few months and not so much. Your initial response is to let them go but then you start to think about the aftermath of their departure. Hiring and training someone new, unfinished projects, lost revenue…
After much deliberation, and some sleepless nights, you were SO SURE about letting them go… and then your mind popped in with the numbers and the starting over scenarios and now you’re wondering if you can hold off a bit longer or maybe they’ll change.
You make a decision and demand that it be so – BAM! Your next step immediately shows up.
Call this person, Implement XYZ, Change service providers…
Then, an interesting thing starts to happen, you feel uncomfortable at the idea of picking up the phone or making the changes that will get you from point A to point B… that support what you were asking for. You were SO clear before, and now…
Well, maybe it’s not what you really want, anyway. Maybe now isn’t the right time. Maybe all those reasons why you can’t jump out of your comfort zone start to pop up.
Call it a gut feeling, intuition or guidance from Spirit… we are all being guided in the direction of our highest expression and meaningful creations.
Your True Essence longs for expansion, joy, purpose and meaning. Your True Essence works alongside Spirit (the universe and your angels and other heavenly helpers) to guide you in the direction of your heart’s desire.
And, when our awareness, intuition, true essence or soul speak to us, we know it’s coming from our heart, we know it’s ON and it’s true for us.
The tricky part is… we are also being guided in other directions. You have an ego and a subconscious mind, both of which have vested interests in keeping you right where you are. You see, your brain’s job is to make sure you survive, not leap out of your comfort zone and chase after your dreams. No, its job is to keep you right where you are and that’s when the reasons, or excuses and distractions, come into play.
It can feel like we are being bombarded with decisions to be made every day and understanding which voice is which (spirit or ego) is a vital skill for anyone who desires to enhance their growth, creative power and overall happiness.
Is it the voice of Spirit, or is it Ego? How can you know which one is speaking to you?
I’ll let you in on a little, or not so little, secret that is most important, which is…
We all have an intuition, inner knowing or awareness. Each one of us. It’s real and it’s always communicating with us.
Somewhere in your energy field, either consciously or unconsciously, you know what is true for you. All the time.
What happens is, on some level, we choose to block our awareness… not listen to or act on our inner knowing.
Common reasons why we block our awareness…
The good news is that un-blocking your awareness is also a choice.
If you allow your awareness to just know, then you don’t have to play with doubting, second guessing, or NOT knowing.
If you always just know, and you know without any doubt that you know, then all you have to “do” is choose to hear your inner knowing… and then act on it. That’s right, choose to hear your awareness, your inner knowing.
So, how do you do that?
1. Slow down the “critter mind.”
By far, meditation is the best way to s l o w down the “critter mind”, allowing you to access your awareness and universal energies with ease. The amazing benefits of meditation are well-documented and by meditating, we enter into a different brain wave and this is the direct link to our intuition, our inner knowing.
I hear it time and time again… I HATE meditating and I don’t have time to meditate.
Luckily, there are LOTS of ways that you can practice slowing down the critter mind. Everyone’s brain responds differently to different mindfulness practices and I encourage you to find what works best for you.
Some enjoy breath work or music, while exercise and moving meditation work for others. You could even try guided meditations, adult coloring books or even mundane tasks like ironing or washing dishes.
Focused breathing will quiet our mind and bring our awareness back to our heart space – where our intuition lives and where our angels and guides communicate with us. Simply breathe in for the count of 5, hold for the count of 5 and release for the count of 5. Continue doing this until you feel a shift in your energy.
And, EVERYONE has 5 minutes to invest in themselves.
While sitting in traffic you could be doing breath work, setting your alarm to get up earlier before the kids wake up, in the shower… you get the idea. When you choose to learn how to quiet your critter mind, you will find ways to best support you.
2. Empty Vessel.
Next, after we have slowed down the mind, we are going to empty the mind. This is done by releasing all thoughts, worries, concerns or anything else that is not serving you.
Here is a short visualization to get you started…
Close your eyes and continue to breathe deeply and imagine yourself surrounded by beautiful while light. Now, as you breathe in, imagine breathing in this white light, allowing it to fill your entire body from the top of your head to the tips of your toes and fingers. As you breathe out, imagine breathing out everything that is not serving you, letting go of all stress, worry and fear. If you have had a day filled with unease, you may need to sit a little longer to get to a place where you feel expansive. Continue to breathe in this white light and when you feel that you have let go of your day, or whatever comes up for you, then imagine this white light, which is you, expanding out from your body, and see it expanding farther and father, encompassing the world, the universe, and beyond.
When we create an empty vessel, we create a magical playground to access our highest knowing, to play with our angels and guides and become very clear on what our heart’s desires are.
3. Stay in Question.
When we stay in question, we stay in constant communication with the universe, with our awareness, with our angels. It’s like keeping a door open for divine guidance and inner knowing to continuously flow through.
Want to know what your intuitive guidance or awareness sound like? Ask questions…
What would it take to add $5,000 to my business this month?
What would it take for my new car to show up?
What would it take to attract a fun, engaging, loving partner?
What would it take for [XYZ] to show up in my life?
What would it take for this project to be filled with ease and fun?
All of your questions are answered, perhaps immediately and sometimes it takes a little bit of time for your awareness to receive the action steps or the knowing.
When you ask for guidance, you’ll receive guidance. Notice how it shows up: did the universe move someone into your world, did it show up when you were painting, was it a feeling you had?
Your whole life can change by asking questions. Jack Canfield and Marc Victor Hansen discovered the title for their Chicken Soup for the Soul series, simply by asking for “a mega-bestselling title.” And, the rest is history.
Ask and it is given. Every time.
4. What is your body telling you?
Have you ever chosen to do something but it didn't really “feel good” in your body? Our body sends us messages all day and when we learn to really pay attention to these messages, this can be a game changer in our world.
Imagine you meet someone for the first time and you instantly get a discomfort in your body. That is your body’s way of letting you know something is off and that you may not jive with this person. This feeling is an invitation from your body… hey, this is not someone you would enjoy spending time with. Notice how this “no, not for you,” feeling felt in your body.
The flip side, is when you meet someone and you feel excited and lit up like you’ve been waiting for them to arrive. Perhaps it’s a lightness in your heart or your stomach. I refer to these “YES” hits as champagne bubbles… it just feels amazing. Notice how your body communicates this with you.
Think of your body as this walking antenna, infinitely aware of the energies around you and always guiding you toward people, things and places that support and nourish your soul.
5. Practice, practice, practice.
The best way to learn a new skill, or polish one that may be a little rusty, is by practicing. The art of repetition, creates new neuropathways in our brain and over time we master this new skill and it becomes a way of life for us.
Being mindful of our thoughts also takes practice. If we begin to notice and witness our thoughts during the day we may start to see patterns of lack or worry and hear the distinct “critter mind” come to the surface of our awareness. When you notice a non-supportive thought, use what I like to call deflection, and replace it with an empowering thought. For years I would think, “I’m so tired”, and guess what? My universe brought me more things to support that thought… my sleep would be interrupted, I wouldn’t nourish my body or rest when I need to.
Here are some Power Thoughts for you to consider…
Oftentimes our ego will get louder just before we breakthrough so do keep that in mind as you continue to reach past your comfort zone and learn to trust your intuition, your inner knowing, more and more.
Thoughts from ego are typically fear-based, angry and mischievous, often leaving you feeling "off", while thoughts from spirit, your awareness, are uplifting, kind and nurturing and these thoughts will feel true for you.
Remember, you always know what is true for you.
Hello, Beautiful Soul!
Sometimes life gently nudges us closer to our dreams and then there comes a time when you need to trust that the Universe has your back, that your Angels will catch you if you fall, and you just go for it. This can seem daunting at times, but rest assured, when we make that decision and begin to take committed action steps toward achieving our goals, the Universe, and our Angels, will always meet us halfway.
Take a few moments today and strengthen your connection with your Angels.
See, feel or imagine a beautiful golden, white ball of energy in front of you. This ball is filled with universal energies that support, uplift and nurture you. Take a deep breath and step into this energy ball, surrounding you with divine, loving energies. Breathe deeply for the count of 5, hold for 5, and release for the count of 5. Allow your Angels to align and balance your energies, giving you clarity of choice and the magic of possibilities.
Soul Sessions are a wonderful way to gain clarity, strengthen your connection with your guides and angels and gain action steps to create lasting momentum to move you closer to your heart's desire.
Hello, Beautiful Soul!
Your message today is filled with such love and support from your Angels. Many of you are tired and you need to slow down and rest so that your heart has a chance to rejuvenate and your soul a chance to breathe. In giving of yourself, do ensure that you are first giving to you. Only when your cup is full do you have extra love, support, encouragement or whatever to give to those you care for.
Take a few moments today and strengthen your connection with your Angels.
Place your hands on your heart and begin to breathe into your heart and with your exhale release anything that isn't yours to carry. Continue to breathe this way until you feel your mind calm. When you calm your mind through your breath, you will hear, see or just know that your Angels are with you, guiding and nurturing you.
Hi, Beautiful Soul!
The Full Moon is the energetic time to let go of all the things that no longer serve you and parts of your life that you have outgrown. It is also a time for forgiveness, to heal from situations or people that might have hurt you.
This month, the Full Moon, falls in the sign of Virgo. Use the virgin’s healing energy to soothe and heal any areas of your life that are causing you pain or stress.
A Full Moon ritual helps you to release any negativity in your life. It will allow you to set new intentions for the coming of the New Moon, which will fill you with fresh ideas and new beginnings.
Are there people or situations in your life that you’re finally willing to let go of?
Are there things you want to move on from and leave behind?
Do you feel the need to let go of your physical, mental, emotional or spiritual baggage?
Wonderful because TONIGHT is the perfect time to so the releasing work. I'm giving you a super simple Full Moon Releasing Ritual that will teach you how to let your fears and worries out into the Universe so the Divine can take care of them for you.
Last night (Sunday) was the March Full Moon, so tonight we are still in the Full Moon window but SHE is waning (getting smaller in size) - the perfect time for releasing.
Full Moon Releasing Ritual
Gather the following items as you feel guided: a pen, paper, matches, a candle, two small bowls, water, and if you wish, incense - Palo Santo is my favourite, crystals (I'm working with angel aura, rose quartz and amethyst ). Find a place outside under the full moon to perform your ritual or a quiet place indoors will work nicely as well.
Take a moment to breathe, ground + center your energy. Free yourself from any distractions and give yourself the gift of this ritual. Close your eyes and breathe deeply, in and out, until your mind is clear and your body is fully relaxed.
Create a sacred space. Fill one bowl with water, and place both bowls in front of you. Pick your favorite candle or incense and light it. Place your crystals as you feel guided or you may wish to hold them.
If you would like to take full advantage of Virgo’s self-healing qualities, choose one with a crisp, earthy smell that isn’t too strong or heavy -- like jasmine, sandalwood, or citrus.
Write down your troubles. On a piece of paper, start with - I now release this and write down the things or people you want to let go of, the beliefs you want to free yourself from, or any habits or situations that have given you fear or anxiety. Write as much or as little as you like, but the more detail you put into each problem, the easier it will be for the moon to work its magic.
Visualize the healing. When you’re done, close your eyes and imagine all of your problems being released, healed or shifted. Take as much time as you like. Really visualize how it would feel to resolve the situation to know that it is taken care of. How would you feel? What would your reaction be? What would you do after?
End with forgiveness and release. When you’re done visualizing, let all the negative energy you have towards those problems drain away. By letting go of the situation or the problem, you create room in yourself for growth and new opportunities. Seeds of magical possibilities can begin to take root.
Give your intentions to the universe. Breathe in deeply and declare, “I now let this go. And so it is.” Hold your paper over the candle and allow it to catch fire, then place it into the empty fire safe bowl to burn. The smoke will carry your intentions to the heavens to be transmuted.
Wash away your old self. Wash your hands in the bowl of water. This symbolizes cleansing and opening yourself up to new things. Then, sit in silence with your hands crossed over your heart for a moment. Thank the moon for releasing you from your doubts and old frame of mind, and for filling your heart with new beginnings. You may also wish to bathe with Himalayan salt to further assist your emotional journey.
Most importantly, go with what works for you. If your intuition tells you to meditate on your problems or to rip up your paper instead of burning it, follow that path. At the end of it all, the ritual is all about your willingness to let go and make room for what your heart is calling for. You may receive guidance, clarity or action steps from your ritual. If so, you may wish to take a few minutes to journal your insights. These magical insights will continue to flow into your awareness and may even show up for you in your dreams.
The New Moon, which takes place on March 28th, is a time for new beginnings and new ways of looking at things. I'll be sending you a wonderful gift in the next couple of weeks that I think you're going to LOVE - so keep your eyes on your inbox for emails from me!
If it doesn’t open, it’s not your door
I read this statement this morning with my coffee and I immediately wanted to explore this more with you. I began to wonder…
What if now isn’t time for the door open?
What if we don’t have the right key to open the door?
When do we leave one door and move onto the next?
Do you remember the movie Monsters Inc. where all the doors to the children’s rooms were hanging in endless rows and when it was time to scare a particular child, their door would come down for the assigned monster to open and while the child was sleeping, they would scare them and generate energy from their goosebumps?
What if instead of monsters, it was the universe aligning us with our doors, not to scare us, but rather move us closer to our dreams? What if all of life’s possibilities are doors just waiting to be unlocked by us?
Someone once said to me, “If you have a dream in your heart and you feel it, believe it and know it to be true for you, the right doors will open, you’ll see.”
I used to get so annoyed and frustrated when doors wouldn’t open for me. I would come up with new ideas to make them to open. Maybe if I used brute force it would open, maybe if I had other people help me the door would open or maybe if I was patient enough, the door would eventually open.
I see doors as possibilities leading us to new places and experiences. Our job, if we choose it, is to take those first steps and walk through the threshold and take the Universe’s hand.
3 Steps to Open Sesame
Step 1. Is this your door?
Determine if what you are working toward is actually yours. Is it something you are hungry for and willing to whatever it takes to have? Does the idea light you up inside, get you out of bed in the morning, eager to make strides toward making it a reality? I know, this sounds crazy. Years ago, I wanted to become an alpaca distributor, complete with a farm and a storefront with different locations. Have you ever felt alpaca fur? It’s amazing, to die for, totally luxurious. My friend and I had this big plan and she kept aligning with the right people; distributors, marketing executives, breeders who would help us achieve this goal. We were so excited and we were making all these plans, setting things in motion and then one day out of the blue everything came to a crashing halt. She called to tell me that her family was relocating and that she wouldn’t be able to do the “alpaca thing” after all. I was crushed and so disappointed. I spent many sleepless nights conjuring up ways that I could do it without her and trying to understand how she could walk away from something this amazing. It wasn’t until several weeks later, that I slowly came to realize that it was HER door the whole time! I chose to be a passenger on her bus.
I chose to buy into her excitement, thinking it was mine. I chose to ignore that little voice inside desperately trying to tell me that just like all the other doors we attempted to open together, that this door would not open. I chose to not ask enough questions to know what was true for me and what wasn’t.
So, after I moved through the emotions, and my own bullshit, I began to wonder what door I would like to open for myself. Not long after this fiasco, I had my first reiki treatment and by opening that door, I stepped into a magical land filled with possibilities that continue to light ME up daily.
What door would light you up?
Step 2. Come up with a plan
Action creates confidence and momentum. Once we’ve chosen something that lights us up, we invoke the universe to assist and the door will appear.
Take my reiki door for example. I had several reiki brochures, read books, talked with different people and kept circling the reiki wagon. It wasn’t until I met a reiki master who’s energy lit me up, that I made the decision, the choice, to explore reiki. I felt unsure but did it anyway. First, I had a reiki session and LOVED it. Next, I signed up for my first reiki class and LOVED it. I then came up with a plan to become a Reiki Master/Teacher so I could share this amazing energy with the world. Soon, crossed over loved ones began to show up in my sessions and I began to see specific ailments in the body catapulting me into learning Medical Intuition. Once I had a plan for my reiki door, the Universe kept bringing me more doors to light me up.
I remember watching Wayne Dyer years ago and he said, “Think from the end. I'm a big believer in starting with the end outcome and working backwards to reach it.” If we walk away from the door too soon, how will our dreams, goals and targets become a reality? Wayne would have a mock book cover done up for a book he was writing. It would sit on his desk and he would connect with the book, see it selling and making a difference in people’s lives. Thinking from the end.
Think of your current door that truly lights you up, that you are committed to mastering. Now, see that door (goal, dream) as complete and choose 1 step that you can implement today.
And, when you complete that step, choose another and another until your door opens.
Step 3. Mindset
Words and feelings determine what you attract into your life. This is where self sabotage comes in, our beliefs and the stories we carry with us. We can talk ourselves out of our dreams and not choose to walk through the threshold when the doors open.
I’ve seen many clients pick a door (dream, goal), come up with a plan for their door only to walk away just before it opens. A strong, focused mindset is vital to achieving your goals and outcomes. If you believe you can’t, you won’t.
We all have difficult life experiences that rear their head from time to time. In those moments we can choose to give up, OR we can choose to take the information from that experience and use it as motivation. One of my mantras, is – there has to be a way.
Oprah Winfrey was fired from her first TV job as an anchor in Baltimore.
Steven Spielberg was rejected twice by the University of Southern California.
Thomas Edison was told by his teachers he was ‘too stupid to learn anything’.
Walt Disney was told he ‘lacked imagination and had no good ideas’.
Theodor Seuss Geisel - Dr. Seuss - had his first book rejected by 27 different publishers.
Stephen King had his first book Carrie rejected 30 times.
Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team.
When you have a dream, a goal, that lights you up inside, that you know is yours to bring to life, you will find a way and eventually that door will open and connect you to that magical place inside.

Let’s face it – 2016 has been a bit of a butt-kicker, BUT, 2017 is New Beginnings just waiting for us to choose.
2016 was a 9 year which corresponds to an ending of a cycle, so, 2017 is truly a new beginning for all of us.
And while the holidays can be such a special time of celebration and joy, it can also bring up a lot of stuff for many.
This time of year can shine a light on “the gap” which is that place inside where you feel a void between where you are on your journey today and where you truly desire to be.
If you’ve been feeling the intense energies, you are not alone. I personally found the energies from this last year outrageously intense, pushing me to release anything that was in the way of my dreams. Man, did it ever kick butt! So many of you have also experienced this intense release giving you an opportunity to let go of anything that is no longer serving you.
The holidays can bring added stress, upheaval, upleveling or… good old drama trauma – you know the kind where certain people just can’t be in the same room together for too long before the cray cray kicks in?
I began to wonder what it would take to keep our vibe high and clean even in the midst of crazy, chaotic energy – throughout the holidays or any time of year. We all want to experience that magic each and every day and trust me, with a little focus and perseverance it will become your reality.
As we get ready to say goodbye to 2016, I have a quick energy practice to help you shift your energy and bring that magic, which is really you, into your day.
1. Imagine a bright golden light emanating from your heart space. See this light travel up through the top of your head and up into the heavens. This is your soul connection anchoring your connection into the Divine Matrix.
2. Take a deep breath and imagine this golden light coming back down into the top of your head, then down your neck and shoulders, arms, torso, down your legs and into Mother Earth’s welcoming arms.
3. Take another deep breath and imagine this golden light bathing Mother Earth with Divine Love and your Divine Essence. See this golden light infused with a vibrant green light as it begins to travel back up to the bottom of your feet, up your legs and back into your heart space.
4. As you breathe in, you breathe in the light of the divine and the light of Mother Earth. Allow these beautiful energies to combine with your Divine Essence.
5. Continue to breathe this light into every cell and molecule within your being and breathe out anything that is not 100% of this light.
6. Give thanks to the Divine, Mother Earth, to yourself, and to all the teachers in your life who are helping you to recognize and claim this gift. Let the light radiate your gratitude.
7. And, when you’re ready, open your eyes and carry this light with you as you move back into your day.
Remember that you are always surrounded by Divine Life Force Energy – even in the midst of apparent chaos, including the holidays!
This energy is always available to you when you choose to tune into it, and this practice will help you do that every time.
Wishing you SO much love and magic this holiday season, and all the blessings your heart can hold and more for 2017!
For many of us this year has had amazing and wondrous things show up in our lives and, we’ve also had our share of struggles and disappointments too.
Most people want to zoom ahead into the New Year and forget the mistakes and messiness from this year. But, there is SO much leverage to be gained from taking a look at the past twelve months and finding the wisdom that you can take with you into next year. When we acknowledge what we’ve learned from our experiences, we will know better the next time similar experiences show up. This can save us time, energy and unnecessary detours.
So often, we focus on what isn’t working, that we miss the important accomplishments, big or small, that we haven’t celebrated. I know for me there are some hard-won lessons I would rather not repeat and maybe we all have some emotional baggage that’s ready to go for once and for all.
While many year in review rituals seem quite intense and complex, this one is simple and direct.
Before you decide on your New Year resolutions or set life targets and goals for the next 12 months, I invite you to do this simple exercise. It’s a wonderful way to clear energies, thoughts or ideas that you’d rather not bring into the New Year.
Often when we let go of something we can truly see how it was holding us back.
It’s really easy to get started. Just grab your calendar, pen and paper, and set aside about 15 minutes, or longer if you feel guided. Some like to make a ritual around their review, with candles and incense and more time to meditate and/or reflect. Choose what works best for you.
These 3 simple questions help me clear my mental, emotional and spiritual levels and set me up for a strong start for the New Year:

Thank you so much for reading, watching and diving into more of you. I’m so grateful for you!
Check out my blog post on Sivana Spirit!
I read an article a couple weeks ago and the message is still with me:
It’s not my responsibility to force anyone’s evolution.
In fact, I have it on a sticky on my computer as a reminder.
You see, being an intuitive, psychic, divine channel, I can see possibilities for everyone and it has taken me time to realize that a) it is not my job to do the work for my clients, b) not everyone wants to achieve greatness, and, c) it’s not up to me to change anyone’s mind.
My Guides use the analogy that you can get a horse to water but you can’t make him drink. Right. Well, sort of. After studying this for the last several years, my research has shown something very interesting. Women, mainly, somewhere inside hold the belief that it IS there job to help, things WILL get better once everyone does this or stops doing that. We somehow believe that if we do in fact get the horse to water that it’s a sure bet – he’s going to do that thing you really want him to and he’s going to like it.
What they don’t see coming is this…
The horse gets to the water and has a change of mind. Maybe his feet are sore, maybe he realized that he’s being manipulated and he doesn’t like it or maybe he just decided he didn’t need a drink after all.
Something fascinating happens at this point.
The women get pissed – really pissed. He came all this way and he won’t drink? Not on my watch they think – he just needs a little help. So, they begin to try and coax the horse to drink.
Look how nice and refreshing the water is they say. Nothing.
They offer him a cup filled with water to drink from. Not interested.
They offer him a cup filled with water to drink from with a straw. Still nothing.
The best - they offer to spit the water in the horse's mouth. Nada.
All the while NOT hearing or accepting his change of mind, for whatever reason. And, my research has shown that when we are so focused on getting someone else do to what we would like them to, chances are we are avoiding looking at something within us.
So, the next time you get the horse to water and he doesn’t drink, stop wasting your time and energy and let the horse decide what it wants and get back to creating the life you are meant to. When we focus on our own evolution, we impact the world around us in magical ways so then maybe, just maybe, the horse will eventually drink and if he doesn’t we are too busy creating our own magic to notice.
If you DO want to achieve greatness and you ARE ready to commit to change, I would love to work with you. I specialize in transformational coaching that gets results. Shauna xo

Love Your Body
When you love the skin you’re in, your magnetism goes through the roof and your sex life will soar. So many women, and men too, get caught on the when-this-happens-I’ll-feel-better wagon and what ends up happening is they don’t actually accept and love themselves now, in the present moment. And, the present moment is where the magic unfolds. It’s where you fully connect with another person, get butterflies in your stomach and feel excitement build inside. To fully embrace your body, you need to love, accept and nurture every part of you, even those parts you’d like to change. When you fully embrace everything you have to offer, you ignite your inner passion. Focus on what you love about your body: silky skin, nice round assets, a beautiful smile, an hourglass figure, long legs…
Free Your Mind
It’s so important to calm our mind and learn to settle down and unwind so that we can release all the inner chatter that keeps our brain churning and instead slip into sensual pleasures and relaxation. One way to do this is to imagine that you are actually disconnecting from your day, work, your lists, household obligations, kids… and visualize connecting into your sensuality. You could also put some music on (Barry White is a huge favourite), light some candles or draw a bath. One of my clients has a ritual with her husband – one of them will text the other their code word for sexy time – she finishes up work, stops to pick up wine on her way home and gets her mind, and other parts of her, revved up, creating room for sexual pleasure, fun and whatever else shows up.
Connect to Your Sensuous Energy
Movement connects us into our passionate energy so quickly. The blood is pumping, our heart is beating faster and we feel alive, we feel connected with our bodies and ready to take on the world. Taking part in activities that change how you typically carry yourself can make you feel more confident in the bedroom, increase your arousal and even expand your orgasms. Bet you just thought of when you last worked out, I know I sure did! Learn to be open and expansive with your body: yoga, dance lessons, or even time at the gym will help you get more grounded, have a new appreciation for your body and feel more vibrant and alive!
Spend Time Together – without looking at cellphones
In the busy, fast-paced world that we live in, it’s easy to let date nights slide until they are non-existent. One way to combat this is to set at least one day every week to connect with your lover: going for a walk and then out for dinner, grabbing a coffee or going to a movie, grabbing some assets… When you make time to spend together, you feel more in sync with your partner, increasing your intimacy factor which leads to more sexual satisfaction. If you’re single, date yourself and get in touch with YOU. When you focus on being the juiciest, most amazing YOU, your magnetism will attract those who agree.
I recently read an article titled Married Sex and in it the author explained that most people are just too tired to make the extra effort to have a mind-blowing experience settling for a 30 second blur of hot breathing. Sure, when you’ve been with a partner for a while, it’s easy to forego foreplay and head straight for the goods – quickies are fun don’t get me wrong. However, when you forego foreplay more often than not, you miss out on more fun, a deeper connection and delicious anticipation that builds when you take the time to fool around. Remember when you first met and go back to the basics and get curious about each other again: kissing, cuddling, caressing, light massage - basically do everything without “doing the deed” and enjoy exploring each other.
I have helped hundreds clients and couples transform their intimacy levels from non-existent or barely there to revved up infernos by answering all their sexuality questions and solving their most intimate sexual dilemmas. Ultimately, inspiring my clients — whether single or coupled — to become more confident and self-empowered in and out of the bedroom.
