10 tips for mindful living

Is the life that you live in alignment with your spirit, your being’s true vibration or are you living someone else’s truth?

Being in your own truth feels good. Your spirit feels happy and validated in a body that welcomes it.

For the more sensitive soul, living life in the fast lane may not be appropriate even though it is the modus operandi that we all were programmed with from early on. In the present day society we are validated for looking successful, being busy and productive.

If your to-do-list does not leave much space for just being, meditation, even breathing – an entirely new one may need to be created! The new to-do-list that respects who you are as a being. Perhaps even one that is your server instead of being your master?

Maybe it’s time to begin to place yourself at the top of your own list? That is, rather than dissipating your energy all over the place, trying to fix things that are out of your control, you could call yourself back and take care of the most important person in your life – you.

Doing less and cramming fewer activities into your to-do-list will increase the quality of your being. More of you will be present in the here and now – this is where the magic happens.

There may be some perfect picture sitting in your space that dictates what a successful and active person you should be. Maybe it’s time to start practicing self-forgiveness to neutralize that perfect picture? By forgiving yourself you will step out of competition with yourself.

As you slow down and simplify, eventually you will learn that you can’t do everything yourself. It is okay to be helped by others. It’s okay to receive what you need to feel supported.

When you let go and let God, when you allow yourself to be helped – that is when you are in the truly divine state of Grace. What a gift it is both to yourself and to those around you!

So turn down your third chakra and just breathe. It’s okay to work at a slow pace. If you keep doing your work slowly and steadily with baby steps at a time if necessary – you will at least always be moving in some way. There will no longer be procrastination or the resistance to ‘doing too much’. There will also no longer be burnout.

Here’s a few simple ideas for what to include into a more mindful living practice. Remember, as you take good care of yourself, you effortlessly become a healing presence for others, too:

  1. Take a look at the space you live in: is it permissive of you doing what it is that you love to do. Is there clutter? Maybe it’s time to do some Feng Shui there? Or maybe it’s time to finally make that move to that other town / city / country where you know you will flourish!
  2. Look at your relationships. Are you living with someone who supports your dreams or who invalidates those? Maybe it’s time to move away from a friend / co-worker / family member who may be toxic to you in some way. Give them up to the Supreme Being’s care.
  3. Do you eat healthy, nutritious food? Consider what is GMO and what is not. Buy local and organic. Distrust anything that has a long shelf-life like canned and packaged foods. Go vegetarian!
  4. Do you read books that further your growth? Or are they merely intellectual? Consider what information you regularly feed into your energy field. And most definitely turn off the news!
  5. Do you regularly heal yourself with plenty of rest and relaxation time? Consider adding gentle music or a good book into your evenings.
  6. Slow down. When you live life in the slow lane, you will have more energy available to you to create in the present, because less of you will be invested into the ‘fast and furious’ lifestyle. And the bonus is that there will also be less of a chance of bumping into things!
  7. Simplify. Be clear on what is your responsibility and what is not. Have your life in order, but be open to receiving help and delegate rather than trying to do it all yourself. This way you create a beautiful network of mutual support and co-operation. Have less to do and more to be. Keep it simple!
  8. Ground. By grounding yourself, you can release any excess energy that is not yours. Grounding validates your body and allows it to feel safe and secure. This is essential to remaining present and connected to your own truth.
  9. Meditate. Meditation can be very simple. Just a few minutes or up to 30 minutes every day is all you need. It does not require any effort and the health benefits will be numerous.
  10. Forgive. Running the energy of forgiveness will clear any perfect pictures you may have sitting in your space. It will release you from the burden of carrying a heavy load that may not even have been yours to begin with.

Living in the present moment is a gift

The physical body isn’t an obstacle to be overcome – it’s a reality to be experienced.

It’s true that on the higher planes manifestation happens in an instant, but here on the physical plane things take time. There are no shortcuts, no instant miracles. It takes patience to see your dreams to fruition.

The great changes around the well-known date of December 21, 2012 were not meant to happen in the blink of an eye. These will happen over a much longer period of time.

That is the beauty of the slow and cyclical nature of the physical plane. There is plenty of time. We are not in a hurry to get anywhere. We are not ascending up, up and away as many a New Ager would believe. We are transcending the illusion of our separateness from each other.

Many Eastern philosophies and a large portion of the beliefs held in the New Age circles resist the body and its cycles. Those beliefs lack a solid foundation – they are ungrounded and often fear-based. But love is the highest truth.

Very often the cause is a simple lack of grounding.

Many can’t stick around in the body long enough because of all the pain that is stored in it. Denial of the body by calling it ‘an illusion’ is denial of the pain that they feel. They reject their pain. As a clairvoyant I see snake or the ‘pain beings’ attached to their pain pictures. Clear out the snakes!

So, clearing out the pain and filling your body with lighter, easier and more spirit-friendly energies such as amusement, fun, play, forgiveness, ease – will make it easier for you as a being to spend time in it.

Of course, it’s fine to explore your spiritual nature through whatever journeys you feel called to take, but eventually you would want to bring yourself, your energy, back into body in present time. Otherwise, if you’re not available in the present moment: don’t be surprised that your dreams aren’t manifesting here and now.

Your energy may be in other places and times. Maybe you have a part of you stuck in a past experience where your integrity was compromised, a place where you felt pain and may still be processing it, carrying it around with you.

Or maybe a part of your energy is elsewhere trying to fix and heal for others. Sure, you can be a healer for others, but you may want to realize that an issue can only be solved in its source where it was created from in the first place. Others can only really truly heal themselves.

Call yourself back from wherever your energy has traveled out to, because if too much of you is scattered out all over the place, perhaps explaining, healing, fixing for others or stuck in other time-lines – less of you will be available to create here and now.

People tend to scatter themselves either because of too much pain in the body in present time or some programming that says we must always be busy and constantly doing. Constantly in effort. ‘Just being’ sometimes without doing much is the cure. Meditation is the space where you can ‘just be’.

Bringing yourself, your energy, your truth back into body in present time is healing for you. Meditate, make separations, ground, run your energies, say hello to your own truth and call yourself back into present time – that is the way to heal.

How to set the tone for your day?

Do you practice meditation in the morning before getting on with your day or do you hit the ground running?

Have you ever even considered a centering practice to start your day with?

From personal experience, I can assure you, a day unfolds into to a much fuller potential when you meditate in the morning.

It is the cure for stepping out of bed with the wrong foot.

A gentle early meditation allows you to connect with your center and to stay in it. The more you’ll have meditated, the more you will be able to remain in that center no matter what life throws at you.

Being in your center is the act of being Senior – you recognize yourself, your own spirit as the central creative force in your life. When you meditate, you validate yourself.

Of course, for those of you not yet into the habit of regular meditation, the initial challenge may be even finding enough time and space to meditate. Present day lives can be so full of clutter and noise and we can be so very addicted to that – it may be really difficult to even separate from all that. It may be difficult to find ourselves in that everyday jungle.

Meditation allows you to begin to find what is true for you, so that you can create from your own truth.

Morning meditation is especially great as it will set the tone for the rest of your day.

I like to meditate after having had breakfast. It usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes, but sometimes it can be as fast as 20 minutes. It depends on how much energy I can have on that day. If you are the super-busy type (e.g.: mother of three and juggling three jobs), then short meditations should suffice; unless you’re good to wake up a lot earlier than you already do.

Regardless of how well everything is going, sometimes I can wake up feeling totally stuck, blocked, heavy and resistant to go about the day. There is no telling how you feel in the morning and yes – it can be something you ate. It’s thanks to the meditation that I see the most optimal choice to make for the day.

I may be processing some heavy emotions, but that doesn’t mean they have to set the tone for the day. I recognize and validate my emotions, but I can still focus intention on higher qualities that I wish to have as the guiding lights throughout the day.

This takes Seniority. You have to be Senior to realize that your day is your making and no one else can influence it towards their ends.

When you meditate regularly, you will begin to settle into a nice space of awareness and Seniority and someone else’s bad day no longer throws you out of your center.

You set the tone for your day simply by meditating before diving into all the activity. First, you find a nice and comfortable spot. Then using visualization, you ground yourself, and finally when you feel ready – you visually create a rose for the day. Look for the optimal rose color that you feel in affinity with.

Then playfully throw into that rose intentions for what you want from this day. Here are some examples:

  • lightness
  • ease
  • joy
  • color
  • grounding
  • inspiration
  • neutrality
  • physical energy
  • get-up-and-go
  • discipline to stay on track
  • having
  • social fun
  • questions
  • wonder
  • curiosity
  • clarity
  • amusement

Enjoy!

18 easy ways to heal yourself

In a nutshell: heal the spirit and the spirit will heal the body.

That is the core of my work as a healer. 

There is a story going around that some of us are healers while others are not. That story is a lie.

Everyone heals.

The truth is, you are your own best healer. Others can only help to unblock your already existent self-healing skills.

In my practice as a clairvoyant I get to see for myself every time how energy is self-healing. Healing does not take effort. So the question is then: ‘why don’t some people heal?’ The answer is simple: because on some level they choose not to. And that is okay, too. They choose to learn about the underlying ever-present true potential of wellness through the contrast of illness.

There is also this picture held about healers that healing through laying on of hands is a way of giving away one’s own energy. This isn’t accurate. The hands simply work to unblock energy-blocks to healee’s own self-healing energy. If the healer feels drained after laying on of hands – they are leaking energy somewhere. That’s what I call an unconscious healer.

The most important healing ability is the ability to heal yourself. By healing yourself you set the tone for others which they will match if they are open to it. That is the art of effortless healing.

So how do you heal? Consider the ways in which you nurture yourself.

  1.  Meditate
  2.  Ground
  3. Eat healthy, nutritious food
  4. Exercise
  5. Rest
  6. Play
  7. Engage in a hobby
  8. Step out of your comfort zone
  9. Have faith
  10. Notice all the love available all around
  11. Read fairy-tales
  12. Create music / art
  13. Tell jokes, find amusement in things
  14. Take a road trip
  15. Spend time out on a beach, doing nothing
  16. Validate yourself
  17. Connect with your own vertical energy
  18. Get a healing

I’m not your healer – you are, I only point my finger to where I see blockages, I create the space and give you my permission . . . and you heal yourself!

Conscious healer vs. unconscious healer

Did you know that you are already a healer by design that is built in to your human / spirit software?

Yes, we all heal.

You don’t ‘become’ a healer. You become aware of an ability that was yours to begin with – you simply own it.

Indeed: healing is one of your spiritual natures. It is something we all do naturally. Only difference is that some of us do it consciously while others do it unconsciously.

So let’s take a closer look at these two kinds of healers.

The unconscious healer.

  • He / she always puts others first. This person does not understand the mechanics of healing.
  • An unconscious healer is scattered all over the place: always fixing, healing, repairing, figuring out, rescuing. He is keeping his attention away from himself – this is the default we are programmed with early on in our lives. The lie here is that giving attention to oneself is selfish.
  • An unconscious healer frantically grabs on to any misery they see, absorbs into his / her space (body and aura) and tries to heal it in this way. This is the kind of person who can’t let go of worry for others, because they buy into the lie that others are ‘broken’ in some way.
  • This kind of a healer does not realize he / she is projecting one’s own stuff onto others, then offers a lot of advice. This actually pushes others away as he / she gets into everyone’s space, which is very annoying.

The conscious healer.

  • A conscious healer makes the biggest mess of them all by placing oneself on top of one’s own to-do-list and thus heals not just oneself, but also others without effort.
  • A conscious healer is aware of how setting an example energetically by healing oneself first is true healing, because others who are open to his / her healing will match it.
  • A conscious healer does nice things for oneself, things like meditating, grounding, running energy. A conscious healer heals others through one’s being – by being the best that they can be. This person is aware of energy and knows how to work it.
  • A conscious healer is totally present. Or at least working on clearing out whatever blocks he / she may have to being more present. The blocks may be things such as agreements, pain pictures, MEI pictures, perfect pictures, foreign energies they have given seniority away to . . .
  • A conscious healer does not heal within one’s own space, but keeps one’s healing projects out in the ‘healing clinic’ rose.

All healing is truly self-healing.
