3 Types of Underlying Money Blocks Over the summer, I have been invited to write some guest blog posts for a group of networking women I participate in. I was inspired to write about money issues, as it affected most of my life. Through working with my own money issues as well as working with others on the subject, I have been amazed. I know for sure that a lot of energetic imbalances that are distorting our energetic body affect how much money we earn, how much money we save, how much money we have and hold on to, etc. And that shifting our energy, as well as the way we perceive money and abundance, shifts our in-flow of abundance. Part 1 : Underlying Money Blocks – Past-lives Past-life… seriously? There are so many programs that run in the background of our consciousness that dictates how we feel, think and act. Most of us are only aware of the tip of this iceberg. We don’t always question our processes. And when we do, we often can’t find a logical answer. It’s quite possible that you have had many lives with a variety of experiences that left their mark on your spirit. …

Insights from my Vision Quest Back in March I did a vision quest to help me get to the root of some issues I couldn’t seem to let go of. I also felt I needed time away by myself to connect with nature and her teachings. You do not need to go far away for that, it’s just easier to see when not distracted by to-do lists and imbued by other people’s energy. I spending the day by a lake in a remote area. I really had a great time absorbing the scenery, being awed by the beauty of the landscape and the peaceful rhythmic sound of the waves on the pebble beach. I even received my own power song from spirit. —> A personal power song can help you ground, focus, and connect you with spirit. It can also have healing properties. It is a song meant for you with a unique vibration that resonates with your soul. But the most powerful insight I got was on my way back home. And it’s something I did not expect in the least. It is simple, childish, fun and humorous but oh so right! It can lift you up in moments …

Vision Quest – How to connect with nature for profound insights What is a Vision Quest Back in February, I decided that I was going to do a Vision Quest in March. I didn’t have all the details, but I know I wanted to commit to the idea. You might be wondering what the hell is a Vision Quest? A Vision Quest is a journey in Nature in order to receive an insight (a vision) on the topic desired. Why do a Vision Quest My Vision Quest was for a vision on the next steps to take in my business. I also wanted to dismantle some mental patterns that seemed to regularly pull me back in a lack mentality. You know, that thing you thought you dealt with already! What seems to be the recurring pattern in your life you’d like to move beyond? How to plan your Vision Quest So I pick the dates I was going to go away. I was undecided between 2 or 3 days. I figured that 2 days might be best for me since it was my first time doing an almost authentic Vision Quest. In a real Vision Quest, one goes in nature …

How to feel energy This post is intended for people interested in increasing their perception and sensation of energy. So how can you feel energy? First, it does take practice. Practicing meditation also allows for a quieter mind and an increasing awareness of energy. However, my best tip to accelerate the process is to be in your heart space and increase your level of self-love. What do I mean by being in your heart space? Here is my 4 steps (+1 tip) practice on how to be in my heart space: 1 – Bring your attention to your physical heart by (feeling/imagining): Bringing your mental awareness to the heart area Putting your hands on your chest Feeling your heart inside your chest 2 – Breathe in and out through your heart by: Imagining your breath coming in and out through your heart Visualizing yourself expanding and being bigger than your physical body as your chest expand 3 – Notice the sensations that are emerging as you practice step 2 and 3. You might feel different things such as: Change in temperature – hot / cold Tingling or pins & needles Lightness / density Color, sound Breeze or wave like sensation …

When the holiday season doesn’t feel so magical… There is something I love about the holidays besides the spirit & magic of Christmas. It’s the way we can have deep & insightful knowledge about what we need to heal or come to terms with in our lives. There is nothing like family drama, overwhelm, guilt for giving or not, spending more than we can, drowning our sorrows in wine & chocolate, etc. to help us understand and see what is at the root of those triggers. Of course, we always have the choice to let the triggers simmer & fester or take the time to observe : – What is the (true) emotion behind the trigger – What does it remind us of – How this may be showing up in other areas of our lives – When did we feel this way for the first time – How does this reflect the way we may be treating ourselves in the same way I invite you, over the holiday season and beyond, to make note of these triggers and go through the previous questions as soon as you have a quiet moment for yourself. Take some time in the evening, not …

What are weak energetic boundaries and how to strengthen them It’s easy to weaken our boundaries with absolutely no clue we are doing it. People with weakened boundaries often behave in ways they think is right and good, such as being humble, flexible, caring, generous, etc. However, it is easy to slip into the negative polarity of those qualities and forget our own needs and preferences for the needs of others. My weak boundaries reflected themselves in how I used to tell the world around me that I sucked. What weakens our energetic boundaries Not being clear about our personal values, needs, preferences, qualities, and talents can make it harder to define and know what is acceptable and true for us or not, what is ours and what is others. We may be left with an unidentifiable awkwardness when interacting with some people. Here are some examples of what weakens our energetic boundaries : Symptoms of weak boundaries I believe we respond this way when our self-worth is low and this, in turn, weakens our energetic boundaries. When our energetic boundaries are weakened we can experience some of the following symptoms : I have come a long way in learning how to set …

How to have (more) compassion Last month I touched on the subject of interconnectedness and would like to expand from there. Does knowing we are all connected change anything for you? For me, knowing that we all touch the same ground and breathe the same air, fills me with a sense of unity. Like each cell of a body, we have a unique purpose and function, contributing to the health of the whole and forming a defined organism. When some of the cells are being attacked or weakened, part of the body cannot function optimally. This, in turn, affects the whole being. Most of us can survive a cold, but I don’t know anyone who likes to feel weak and achy. And if most of your body is in a weakened state of health, you are usually limited in some shape or form by that weakened state. Recognizing the sacred essence What if we could view every individual like a cell in our body, recognizing the sacred essence and purpose in every being? What if we could respect everyone, no matter where in the world they reside or how they live their life? I’m pretty sure that if you are …

The oneness interconnectedness concept from a 7 yrs perspective I was walking in the forest by my house with my daughter. I love forests. I feel forests have so much life and vibrancy. Even the dead trees, leaves, and the needle covered path feel alive. You can hear the songs of birds and the wind rustling through the leaves, but there is a sort of stillness within all that life buzzing. So my daughter, who’s 7, starts to explain to me how everything in life is connected. And what she said blew my mind! It was so simple, yet so profound. She told me that everything was connected because our feet touch the ground and the ground touch this tree and that tree and through touching something, we touch everything. How’s that for a life lesson! And it doesn’t need to be more complicated than that. I asked her where she got that idea from, and she said her brain 🙂 Most of us have heard that nature is an ecosystem. An ecosystem is a community of elements dependant on each other. We need the bees to pollinate the flowers in order to have fruits to nourish our bodies, etc. So …
