Sync with the Universe

Did you know that when you live your life in harmony with the Universe, you experience better health and overall wellbeing? It’s true … but what exactly does it mean to sync with the Universe? Our physical and emotional bodies are influenced by the changes in the Universe.

Sun energy

When the sun is out, it gives off vibrant and happy energy which is why we tend to have a better mood when the sun is out. When the sun is behind clouds or hidden during the night, this is when we go inward. Sun is the life force energy for our planet and all beings.

During the Summer Solstice in June, when the sun is at its strongest and present the longest, this is when we feel its energy the most. It can recharge our batteries and provide us more energy and life force. This is also true for animals, plants, crystals, and so on.  It’s a great time to sit outside and let the sun charge your life force.

The Fall Equinox is about preparing to do less and being more still. It’s about connecting with your heart and inner voice, and listening.

During the Winter Solstice in December, the sun is the furthest away from Earth and at its weakest. It’s a time for hiberation, reflection and going inward. It is a great time for meditation to reflect on what you need to prepare in your mind before it manifests in the Spring.

And the Spring Equinox is a time to plant the seeds of your ideas (obtained during the Winter Solstice time of reflection) and use the increasing energy of the sun to let them grow.

The Super Moon this past weekend

Moon energy

The time before the new moon is a time to reflect on what you want in life. When the new moon occurs, it’s like a blank slate to draft your intentions. The time between the new and full moon (called waxing) is a time to focus on your intentions and become clear about what you want. When the moon is full, that is the time to release and take action on your intentions. It is a great time to launch new projects and ideas. It’s also a time of increased energy which is why some people feel agitated or have trouble sleeping. Some cities see increased crime rates. The time between the full moon and the new moon is called waning and this is when energy is waning, so you rest and reflect. It can also be a time of reflective creation to help you prepare for the next cycle of intentions.

A super moon happens about once a year and is when the moon comes closest to the earth. It looks larger than usual and the light from the moon is quite intense. It can cause an increase in emotional reactions and even sleeplessness from the intensity of the light. The super moon this past weekend was no exception and caused many emotions to run wild!

The moon waxes and wanes every month, like the tides that move in and out, and provides an opportunity for you to reset your intentions, release them, and then rest. When you can prepare your activities in alignment with these natural celestial movements, your life will run smoother. When you work against these natural movements, life can seem difficult.

For example, do not set intentions in the waning days before the new moon. That is a time for reflection on what you want. And you may find it more challenging to deeply meditate during a full moon because of the heightened energy.

Eclipses

Eclipses are a time of increased energy that you can harness for your benefit. A solar eclipse is when the darkness of the new moon is between the brightness of the sun and the Earth. It’s where darkness and light merge together. It is the start of a new cycle in your spiritual development. It’s an indication of change, new beginnings and the manifestation of new things in your physical world. Solar eclipses are a great time to set new intentions. You may feel a build up of pressure, feel that things are moving faster, even have accidents.

A lunar eclipse is when the full moon passes into the Earth’s shadow. A lunar eclipse is the time for beginnings, endings, and major changes, usually involving relationships. Emotions run high, actions taken usually have unexpected results, but you obtain awareness of yourself. The energy can be felt two days before and three days after the eclipse. Like the solar eclipse, you may feel restless, move faster, and have trouble sleeping. A lunar eclipse is a time to “see the light” in our life, to release out dated beliefs, and to walk your truth.

What you can do

To keep myself in sync with the Universal energies, I look ahead in my calendar about 3 months and chart out the new moon and full moon dates, as well as any upcoming eclipses. This helps me to plan my creations, when I launch projects, when I put my crystals outside for a sun or moon bath, when I will be more physically energized, and when I need to rest. It also helps me to understand when I may have trouble sleeping (grab that Selenite and place it under your pillow), when I may have trouble meditating, and when I do not have the energy for physical activities. It prevents me from being hard on myself when I understand that I’m syncing with the Universal energies. And when you can work with these energies rather than against them, life is easier and sweeter.

Do you have passion and meaning in your life?

Which camp do you fall into: (1) You love love love the work that you do, never get exhausted and could do it all day long and often think I cannot believe that I get paid to do this!!! Or (2) You drag yourself out of bed each morning, use up scarce energy to avoid people and situations that drain you, are bored with mind-numbing tasks, all while watching the clock until you can crash in exhaustion and wake up to do it all again the next day?

I really hope that no one is in option #2, yet I know that many people are. So my question is …. Why are you spending most of your waking hours doing things that do not fire up your passion and do not contribute meaning to your life or to the world?

The answers I often hear are legitimate, but not insurmountable: I need the money in my current job, I’m not educated enough to change jobs, my family needs me, there are no other jobs out there, or I have no idea what gives me passion. If you are #2, what you are doing is continually draining your energetic bank account to where you will have energy debt that you feel you cannot crawl out of. I don’t know of anyone who would intentionally chose that for themselves. Do you?

Recently I was reading Defy Gravity by Caroline Myss. This book helps you to identify what gives your life meaning and to look at how much time you spend each day on it (yes, each day, not each week or month)? This helps you to know if you are spending too much time each day in work/activities that do not give meaning and what you need to do right now in order to feel useful and fulfilled. It’s an opportunity to look at your life priorities and determine how much time you give away every day. For most people, we have a list of what is important yet we spend little if any time each day on them.

Going through this process is eye opening and shines a light on where you are frankly wasting your precious time. We hear people say all of the time (heck, you may even say it) that life is precious. We all know that sudden tragedies can strike that can change your life forever (or end it). So why would you intentionally spend your precious days doing something that does not give you joy or worse … something that you absolutely hate??? And saying that you do it for the paycheck is not a good answer because paychecks can be found everywhere if you get clear and decide that you deserve better.

Everyone has a passion; if you don’t know what it is, it is likely covered up in the junk of life. Make yourself get quiet and meditate to figure it out. Or look to what you naturally do in your spare time to get an idea. The things that make you happy are your clue! Some of you may think that you don’t have sufficient education or skill to do what you are really passionate about. Look at it this way … break down into very specific tasks what you love to do. For example:

• If you love to interact with a wide variety of people that you don’t know, you would be great working in a restaurant or shopping store.
• If you love to work with animals, work at an animal shelter, veterinary clinic, or dog walking service.
• If you love to work by yourself and love computers, the opportunities for online work are endless.

The busyness of everyday life prevents too many people from taking the time to figure out if they are actually doing what brings them passion and meaning. The next thing they know, they are attending their 20th high school reunion and reflect on their life to realize that they are in a place that they don’t like or did not intend. It’s never too late to spend your time doing what you love.

Take the time to figure it out. You’re the only one who can live your life. You were born into this world at this time to do something unique. That uniqueness can truly be putting a smile on people’s faces every morning as you make delicious coffee at your local café. Your passion and meaning does not need to involve ending world hunger … it could be helping people smile. You deserve to spend your life doing things that make you happy and give meaning. Don’t cheat yourself out of living your life passion!

And going back to the question up top, I am thrilled that I am in option #1. Energy laws, energy healing, crystals, animals and helping others are my passion. I cannot believe that I get to work in these areas everyday!!! How cool is that???? But it wasn’t always that way. I did the work to get here. And even now there are some areas where I spend too much time with people and situations that do not ignite my passion or give me meaning, and I’m taking steps to lessen that. Remember, we’re all a work in progress so take just one step today towards living a life with passion and meaning. One step sweet pea! Easy-peasy!!!

If you’re in a situations where you have a significant energy debt and cannot find your passion and meaning, check out my coaching options and let me help you. I love love love to help people find their passion.

All my best,

What’s your animal?

One of my morning visitors

Have you ever heard of animal totems? These are animals who come to us to teach us something or give us a message. In the Shamanic world, we all have at least one animal totem that is special for us for this lifetime. But we also encounter many animal totems or animal guides throughout the day. Most often, people are too busy or distracted to see their animal totem. When you stop multi-tasking and enjoy whatever surrounding you are in, you will see them and can receive their message.

How do you receive their message? When an animal grabs your attention, that is the sign that they have a message for you. You can figure out that message by getting a book on animal totems (I like Steven Farmers Pocket Guide to Spirit Animals), or you can look online for the definition. I like this website (scroll to the bottom to search). Or you can just intuitively look to what the animal naturally represents.

Recently, I have been consistently seeing three animals when I am outside: rabbits, turtles and snails. Rabbits are about creation and things moving in leaps and bounds. I have been in a very creative phase that I feel is starting to take off, so that totem message makes sense to me. Turtle totems are about grounding, slowing down, and working with Earth energy to accomplish things. That definitely sings to me as I have been going non-stop all year and have felt the need for rest and rejuvenation. And the snail totem is about balancing when to trust the outside world and when to protect yourself. This morning, I had three tiny snails on my front porch. I moved them into the bushes in front of my house to keep them safe and within two hours another two were on my porch. They clearly want to get my attention.

Once I learned about animal totems, it really helped me to be in the moment and to not multi task. So when I drive, I enjoy the view; and when I walk or run, I do not have my smart phone or music in my ears but I instead look around for animals that make themselves known to me. Watching for animal totem messages is a good way to slow down and enjoy life.

So for today, be present in what you are doing when you are outside and look for messages that animals send to you. I’d love to hear what they tell you, so feel free to post and share!

All my best,

Change it up baby … live in awe!

When most people hear the word change, they cringe. Change to be uncomfortable, unpredictable, and unwanted in most circumstances. Most often because change has happened unexpectedly (like losing a job, divorce, a scary health diagnosis, death of a loved one). But change is necessary in order for us to survive. If you’re not changing, you’re not growing. If you’re not growing, you’re dying.

Change does not have to be scary; it is a natural part of life. Everything on this planet (heck, in the Universe and beyond) changes every day. Your cells are changing all of the time. I cannot think of one thing that is not in a constant state of change. So why is it that humans cling to consistency like a life vest? It’s because we’re afraid of the unknown. It’s because we let fear convince us that what’s on the other side is a bad thing. But remember what fear stands for: False Expectations Appearing Real.

Let me ask you this …. Why does the unknown have to be bad? I believe it is because most people have an internal program to expect the worst but prepare for the best. Ironic, eh? How many of us have grown up with that belief being repeated endlessly? That sends a conflicting message and the Universal Mind looks back at you and says “huh?” The Law of Attraction cannot bring you the best when you prepare for the worst. We expect and prepare for worst-case scenarios because this is how we were raised. And when we watch current events, that belief is reinforced. It’s time to jump off of that old-belief train TODAY!

Change and the unknown can be very very good. It can be exciting to know that something better is around the corner. It’s all in your perception though. You can see amazing opportunities at the corner, or the boogey monster. So how can you get yourself to a place where you look to the future without fear? It’s called awe.

When you live life in awe, you look forward to change, see the good in change, and then you respond to change with grace. You approach life with open arms rather than curled up in a ball in the corner of the room. You wake up each morning and look forward to something new and different happening. Living in awe is like riding a rollercoaster with your hands in the air yelling WOO HOO! Living in fear of change is like trying to crawl backwards through the rollercoaster that is going to keep moving forward whether you like it or not. So which would you rather have? Woo hoo or exhaustion?

Sadly, I see people every day choosing exhaustion. They choose to live the same unfulfilled/unhappy/uninspired life because making a decision to improve their existence is scary. They simply do not have the strength to help themselves. In the past month, I have spoken with many people who are desperate to improve their lives, better their health, live life with positivity and passion, and have a say in how their life unfolds. Yet most admitted that they were afraid to take a step in that direction. I could sense their exhaustion. This is what I told them: If you don’t invest in yourself, who will? Only you can live your life. No one can live it for you. And you definitely cannot put the burden on other people to make you happy, keep you comfortable and provide safety. That can only come from within.

Deciding that you want more out of life does not have to be scary. It’s frankly exhilarating once you start on the journey! So if you know that something in your life needs to change, make the decision and let me be your support system. You will be happy that you did!

My coaching system that holistically uses energy laws and healing will support you and help you ride the rollercoaster of change with awe. When you’re ready to live in awe, contact me and let’s see if we’re a good fit to work together.
