How to Maintain Good Energy in Social Situations

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

energeticboundaries

As energetically sensitive beings, it can be overwhelming to be around a lot of people, to be social, and to do this for an extended period of time.

This was definitely an issue for me this past weekend when I spent 6 hours at my booth at the Guiding Light Healing Arts Festival.

While I was a little social butterfly and chatty and all that during the festival, by 5pm I felt totally energetically tapped out.

So what can you do when there are certain social situations that you need to be part of but yet will take a lot out of you energetically?

Here are three measures you can take:

  1. Put a layer of protection up. My favourite is to visualize a rainbow energetic shield around me and set the intention that only love is able to pass both ways through the shield. That way energetic crud cannot get through.
  2. Ask your angels to provide you with a second layer of protection and to be with you for the entire time. Also ask them only to bring good people your who have lovely positive energy.
  3. When you are interacting with people, really be aware of how your energy level is holding up. When you notice yourself starting to feel drained, you can 1) recenter yourself in the moment by observing your breath, and/or 2) wrap up the conversation and get to a quiet space where you can take a little time to recharge.

Next time I go to this festival I am definitely bringing a grounding stone like my mochi ball or green moss agate too. I was very spacy when I left!

One last tip, especially when you’re in a situation where you’re meeting a lot of new people, is to really be discerning of those you meet. I know we all want to think the best of everyone, but there are negative peeps out there that will just drain your energy and not be good for you.

Notice things like negative talk, focusing on negative things, giving unwanted advice, and creepy gut feelings. All of these are red flags.

Being lightworkers and empaths, we often feel like we have to be nice to everyone. But that’s not honouring of us. We need to put ourselves first, and not put up with negative people.

If you encounter a negative person while you’re out and about, as soon as you pick up on it, make an excuse and leave : ) It’s nice to have a go-to excuse handy too. So think up one in advance that you feel comfortable saying.

I hope this has helped! Feel free to share any tips you have too.

In love, light and truth,

Embracing My Inner Spiritual Geek

Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Uncategorized

blog-photo

I was a nerd in school. Don’t let the shiny pink dress fool you.

There was a brief year or two long stint in junior high where I was in the semi-popular group, but that didn’t last. Because of this, I have a finely tuned “coolness” radar. I don’t know why it’s still functioning, but it is.

At my most recent Connect to Your Spirit Guides Workshop, my coolness radar was bleeping loudly.

Typically my workshops have been 20- to 50-something-year-old men and women, but last Saturday there was a 13 year old boy in the front row of my workshop. He was there with his mom and I had no idea whether he was himself interested in Spirit Guides or was just there because he had to be (I suspected the latter).

Even though I’ve experienced what amazing things can happen when I work with my Spirit Guides, there’s still an element of nervousness when I step in front of a new group of people to share what I know.

So seeing this cool 13 year old sitting front and center made me feel like the geeky girl in middle school all over again. Even more so because I was sharing some deeply personal information and concepts that are … well, let’s just say not “mainstream” yet.

Some people may laugh at this and because for them it may not be a big deal at all. But for me – it’s a big deal!

However, I somehow managed not to let this derail me and my workshop, lol. I had to put all my insecurities behind me – or at least shove them so far back in my psyche that they were only tiny murmurs instead of loud voices.

In that moment I re-committed to, embraced and owned that I’m a big Spiritual Geek. I was able to geek out about Spirit Guides for 2 glorious hours with great enthusiasm and a lot of people had really meaningful experiences and connections with their Guides.

It’s interesting how in life we have a choice on what we focus on at all times. Do we focus on the one thing that may not support us? Or do we focus on our mission and all the positive possibilities?

If I’d let my own personal insecurities knock me off my game, then the following gem of an experience would not have happened near the very end of the 2-hour workshop:

I heard and noticed this boy point at his paper when we were doing the channeled writing exercise, and then he and his mom were laughing, so I had to ask what it was about.

Apparently he’d gotten an actual message from his Guides and was really startled / surprised by it. Hearing that almost made me tear up, and in fact thinking about it right now is making me tear up.

You just never know what impact your efforts may have, or when.

In love, light, and truth,

How Your Past Lives Impact Your Relationships

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

soul-mates-marriage

If you’re in a romantic relationship right now, chances are this is not you and your partner’s first rodeo.

What do I mean by that? Well, we typically have many shared lifetimes with those we connect with at deep and intimate levels.

As I work on an Akashic Record relationship reading for a client this morning, it’s fascinating to reflect on the impact that shared past incarnations have on current life relationships.

It’s common to see Souls incarnate as neighbours or coworkers, then a little bit more distant family members, then closer family members, until they finally decide to do some serious work together and incarnate in a romantic relationship or marriage.

At this point the Souls will have quite the connection, and also conversely quite the karma built up between them! You know those trigger buttons your partner pushes like an expert? Yup – that’s karma.

Sometimes it can be cleared, but at the very least the situation where the karma was created can be identified and explained so you get an understanding of how to do things differently – if you want to stop freaking out and getting super annoyed.

Then there are times when Souls launch right into being lovers or marriage, and then they’re not going to have that familiarity that Souls who have been working together for much longer have. Or the karma – joy : )

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with this. It simply means that their Soul wanted to experience something new.

If you’re in a relationship right now or reflecting on a previous relationship, take a moment to feel into it. Did you have many previous lifetimes together or is it a fairly new feeling type of encounter?

And then, if you want more relationship harmony, understanding, love, and all the other good things you can imagine but are struggling to create – email me and we can talk about what an Akashic Record relationship reading and clearing could do for you!

3 Steps to Crush Your Manifesting Process

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

manifesting

Ever since I completed my Soul Manifesting Blueprint course, a question has been wiggling around in my head. It’s a question about manifesting, (obviously).

You see, I can now tell people how they are wired to manifest – and I know how I am wired to manifest – BUT, the whole area of shifting from one vibrational state to another still baffles me.

And so, while I promised myself I would not sign up for any more trainings until I’d really implemented the last one … when I saw my teacher Andrrea Hess offering a new class on Reading the Future in the Akashic Records and it was all about how to shift vibrational states and how to know what shifts to make …. well … I hope you see how it would be impossible for me NOT to sign up for this course. It so nicely builds on and complements the previous course.

So I signed up. And I am totally geeking out and loving it!

Yes, it is a whole different frame of reference than reading the past in the Akashic Records and it will take me some time to wrap my head around.

But in my heart I am SO excited about it!!!

So far what I’ve learned is that the future isn’t something we “step” into, there are NOT several paths laid out before us and we choose one and walk on it.

What actually happens is that we fully embody a new vibrational state and become someone new through the new choices we make and actions we take. It’s once we embody a new vibrational state that new circumstances are attracted into our experience.

Life doesn’t happen “to” us. I remember when I was younger this was something I believed. That my perfect guy would see me and find me. What I failed to realize was 1) that’s not how things work, and 2) that was an entirely disempowering perspective – where was my choice and discernment in that process?

Luckily I discovered the error of my ways and when I FOUND my future husband and decided that he was a good fit for me from a logical and value-based perspective – I intentionally worked on developing that relationship as the timing was right for me.

That opens up a whole other can of worms when someone else’s freewill is involved, as I’m sure my husband would be happy to tell you. Our timelines for our relationship were at odds due to my intense grieving process. But it all worked out in the end. And there was the possibility that it wouldn’t have.

Had I not done the work to fully grieve, I would not have embodied the vibrational state needed to allow him fully into my life in a marriage commitment level capacity.

He had choices to make at various points along the way whether or not to wait for me or to move on to another lady.

One thing is for sure, the future is ever-changing and shifting.

There are things you can do to crush your manifesting process and create the future you want though. Here are 3 helpful steps:

  1. Release any egoic attachment to what reaching your desired outcome means for you. Understand that manifesting is really playfully engaging in your Divine creative abilities. You are not what you create. You do not suck if you don’t reach your goal. Once you release attachment to the outcome, you really open up to your manifesting abilities.
  2. Let go of any “shoulds” when you set your goals. You know, those family legacy shoulds, or the societal conditioning shoulds. These can be tricky to identify because they can be very deeply ingrained. So this step can take a bit of true soul searching and effort.
  3. Be realistic about your goals. Manifesting in the 3rd dimension means that you are subject to 3rd dimensional reality – things take time! If you’ve never attempted a certain goal before, talk to someone who has so you can get their insight into how long and how much effort it will realistically take.

If you’re as excited about manifesting and owning your Divine creatorship as me, then stay tuned for more blog posts on this fascinating topic.

What it Really Takes to Manifest Your Desires

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

 

What does fruit have to do with manifesting? Oh boy! Let me tell you…

The often over-looked aspect of manifesting that many people want to ignore because it’s the hardest is: Actually shifting our physical vibration. It would be so wonderful if we could magically wish ourselves into new circumstances!

But the reality is that our actual physical vibration needs to shift before we can truly embody a new state and therefore attract the new circumstances we want.

Sorry if that burst any bubbles you may have had…

AND to do this, we need to make changes in ALL areas of our life – not just the one that we want to manifest something in.

I’ve got a great example to bring this concept home. My intention is to manifest growth in my business so I can positively impact the lives of more people – that’s a business/money/career intention. So I’m taking new action that excites me in that area, but it doesn’t stop there.

I need to make changes at the level of my health too, which I am.

At the 8 day silent meditation course I recently completed we didn’t have dinner. Our last meal of the day was at 11am. So I brought a version of this home for my husband and I – we now eat fruit bowls and rice crackers for dinner. And it is amazing! I feel lighter, no grogginess in the evening, more energy. So cool. And not easy. Making a big change to our routine takes effort and time and adjusting.

But it doesn’t stop there either! I’ve also started doing 3 minute zumba videos in the mornings Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Mixing up and spicing up my exercise routine.

And lastly, I’m doing a series of new stretches daily. That rounds out my new health related actions – and keep in mind that I’m wired for variety at soul level so I need to take a variety of new actions. Those wired for consistency would only need to take new action in one area, but do it way more often.

This takes care of the new empowered actions I’m doing at the physical level for health and exercise.

But there need to be NEW actions in another area as well – relationships.

It’s so neat how health, money/career, and relationships are all intertwined energetically. We need to make changes in all 3 areas to create and sustain a new vibration and manifest what we want.

In my relationships I’m finding new ways to embody the empowered energetic state too. It takes creativity and effort, and it can be fun! But for some people, it’s too much work, lol. Manifesting isn’t for the faint of heart. And there may be energetic blocks stopping you from being able to take certain positive new actions.

To sum it up – three ways to change your vibration at the physical level so you can manifest what you want are to:

  • Switch up your diet and/or exercise routine – obviously making it more healthy (not less!)
  • Think of a new way to monitor or operate with your finances/business/career and then commit to doing that for at least 21 days
  • Think of 2-3 new actions you can take to bring the energy of your intention into your relationships (doesn’t have to be romantic relationships, can be any relationships – even the relationship with yourself) then do them consistently

The key is to do these new actions consistently for at least 21 days so you fully embody the energies at the physical level. That’s what causes shifts and new wonderful circumstances to unfold!

I’d love to hear how this works for you if you try it out : )

The Power of Soul Aligned Flow!

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

screen-shot-2017-04-10-at-11-19-31-am

Something absolutely beautiful happens when you know who you are at Soul level and you live in line with that…

You have more access to Divine Source energy, more flow in your life, more abundance – it’s amazing. The more I live into my purpose and express my Divine gift and nature in what I do, the better life gets.

I went through a very dark time from 2011 to 2014. This was when Sang, the man I was engaged to, got diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer; underwent horrific chemo, radiation and surgeries; and then passed away. What followed was 2 years of intense grief.

During this time my energy took a massive hit. I could do very little – maybe one social activity per week on good weeks. Slowly this did improve, but it definitely has lingered even till now.

5 years since Sang passed, as I truly embrace and live into my purpose of bringing love, light, healing and consciousness to the world, I’m finally noticing that my energy level is increasing.

It seems crazy to think that it took 5 years to finally feel almost back to “normal”. And I do understand that I’m working with a new normal, not exactly what I had before.

I also really feel and know deeply that this recent internal expansion is because of my external expansion. When you express the Divine energies you are naturally abundant in, you attract more abundance in your life because like attracts like.

I wish I could connect everyone to the truth of who they are at Soul level! That’s one of my life missions. Well, to connect as many people as I can…

What’s your deep purpose? What lights you up? Are you doing that? Do you feel connected that? Or is it something that feels like it’s beyond your grasp?

It doesn’t have to! You can connect to it and then work on bringing your unique light more and more into the world. The world definitely needs more of this : )

Why it’s Important to Heal the Root Cause of Issues

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

blog

About 6 months ago I began having pain around one of my ribs, but I didn’t do anything about it. I just left it.

Then chest pains started happening and at Thanksgiving were so bad I called the healthlink line (back “home” in Calgary, even though I’m in the US now, because healthcare is free in Canada, lol).

I was told to go to emergency immediately – you don’t want to mess around when it comes to chest pains. But I didn’t.

What I did do was make an appt with my doctor though for a week or so later…

She told me that my rib was out of place and that it was throwing everything off and causing my chest pains. So the chest pains – which looked severe and like the problem all on their own – weren’t actually the root of the problem.

I needed to address the rib issues and get that back into place to heal my chest pains.

Two seemingly unrelated ailments, and if I’d simply addressed the chest pains alone I would have had to keep on doing things to heal it but never get anywhere because I wasn’t fixing the root of the problem.

This is true for us energetically too. Many times we are experiencing an issue / pain / problem in one area of our lives and so we do a bunch of healing and put a lot of effort into fixing it, but to no avail. We can spend so much time and money on what we think is the main problem.

What we really need to do is go to the root. Once the root cause is addressed, then the efforts put into healing the secondary levels of issues will actually work.

That’s why I love my Soul Realignment modality, because it does just that. We go in at Soul level to identify and energetically diffuse the root cause so you’re free – wondrously free! to finally shift and do things differently.

It’s a huge relief to uncover the root cause. HUGE.

Like my rib and chest pains, after the adjustments are made it can take time for things to settle back into their full alignment. For things to change in our physical experience, it can take time.

But because the deep foundational work is complete, things will shift! My work empowers people to make those shifts themselves. I’m just the catalyst. LOL – “just”. It’s an important role for sure, but ultimately everyone is responsible for their own healing.

I’m happy to report that my rib and chest are finally on the mend and close to healed. Complete healing is possible! You just need to know what needs fixing and fix that : )

Get Out of Indecision – Help Your Spirit Guides Help You

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

pic-for-blog

A pair of pants sitting peacefully on a garbage can caught my eye as I grabbed a drink from a water fountain mid-run at the river walk this morning.

Immediately my brain starts thinking A) someone took off their pants in public and then B) couldn’t quite decide whether they wanted to toss them completely. Maybe they want to come back for their pants at a later time? Who knows!

What I know is that energetically, this person is on the fence. They’re thinking through two options and they can’t fully commit to either, which is not a good place to be.

Why is this not a good place to be? Well, because when you begin to move in one direction but also have one foot planted where you’re currently at – energetically and mentally you’re sending out two very different messages to your Spirit Guides.

Because your Spirit Guides provide you with guidance and help based on your intentions, you’re going to be getting guidance on how to stay where you are and how to move forward at the same time.

Sound confusing? It is! For you and your Guides… But your Guides have to act on what you put out to them, they can’t decide what to do for you and only give you guidance on what they think is best.

You can help yourself and your Guides immensely by making up your mind! Choose one path and set that as your intention. Release the attachment to whatever it is you’re holding on to (probably because it’s safe and familiar), and commit fully to your new path.

You’re probably not paining over whether or not to throw out your pants in public, you’re likely paining over a career move, a relationship, or taking what feels like a leap in another area of your life.

If possible, I encourage you to decide and fully commit to one path or the other. Set that intention, then ask your Guides to help you out. They’re there to help you. And it can make transitional times easier when you know you’re not alone : )

The Art of Starting Over

Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Uncategorized

img

I just got back from an amazingly fun and productive week in Denver. Many a good time was had. What was not had was exercise, regular meditation, or healthy eating…

Even though it was only a week, now that I’m back it feels like I’m starting all over again in these areas.

When I lost my identity while being a caregiver for 1.5 years then experienced extreme grief when my fiance passed, starting over was a lot bigger of a task and had to be done in almost every life area.

Whether you’re starting over in a small way or a big way, there are some things you can do to get back into it, get motivated, and increase your likeliness of sticking to it.

1. Give yourself permission to do it badly. Newsflash: The reality is you are out of practice and will not immediately jump back in at the same level and proficiency you left off at. When I sit back down on my meditation mat after taking even a day or 2 off, my focus is all over the place. And when I get back out on the river walk to do a run, I’m jogging. And that’s ok. It takes time to retrain yourself. And you will do it badly at first. And that’s ok.

2. Start small. Starting anywhere other than small sets you up for disappointment and failure. When you start small and are gentle with yourself, you create a nurturing environment to grow your abilities again. There’s an interesting book called Micro Habits that talks about doing things for only 5 minutes a day. It seems so easy you can’t not do it. Then over time, it becomes a habit – a regular part of your day – and you naturally desire to do it more and more. So start small and set yourself up for success.

3. Connect to your why. As you begin again, take a moment to ask yourself why doing X activity is important to you. Why did you start doing it in the first place? How does it enrich your life? Once you connect to that, use that energy to carry you back to whatever practice you’re getting back into.

Love and light,

Twyla

Jumping Into the Flow of Spirit!

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

2-year-old

I’ve had a brilliant epiphany this morning that I’m going to share with you : )

Recently I’ve become more acutely aware how my ego is like a 2 year old child – digging in its heals and honestly WANTING to do things the hard way. Why the heck would it want to do things the hard way???

This has been something that’s perplexed me for quite some time, and something that I gave into for years and years.

BUT NO MORE!

As I become more and more spiritually aware and conscious, I realize I can no longer operate from this place anymore. It’s like an outdated piece of software in my operating system that sorely needs updating and I’m finally ready to fully commit to the upgrade.

What triggered this was experiencing the magic and synchronicities that happen when I do act on my intuition. I’ve been on a journey for 7 years now developing my intuition. It’s there, and often times I do follow my guidance, but there were still times that I didn’t.

Latest life example – I found a kindred soul in a coaching program I’m part of who I discovered also does Akashic Record work. Immediately my guidance was to connect. Then a split second after that my 2 year old ego child jumped in and gave me all these reasons not to – so I didn’t.

Fast forward a month – the inkling to connect was still there so I did. And low and behold I learn some amazingly valuable information from this person. Info I could’ve used a month ago… lol.

I believe that this ego dominance stemmed from a negative belief I had that I had to work hard for things or they didn’t matter. And a full-on disbelief that life could be easy. Not serving me anymore!

Being in the flow, choosing the easy way, releasing resistance – is not bad, lesser, or a cop out.

Life can be simple and easy.

When we learn to trust and act on that first voice, the gentle knowing of our intuition and spiritual guidance – we can reduce the amount of struggle in our lives.

So my intention is to allow, just allow. And then observe all the amazingness that happens!

In love, light and truth,

Twyla
