Spring Equinox 2018: Freshen Up That Aura!

You know the old saying “spring cleaning”? There is some real truth to this, as the spring equinox is all about cleaning the old stagnant energy. It’s all about awareness in your openness, and finding balance in our lives. This is a sacred time, where twice a year the sun aligns to give us equal hours of night and day. Ancient cultures saw these celestial movements as deep correlations of a reflection of spiritual journey that the earth is bringing into essence. There is a direct shift in energy, creating space for new and exciting opportunities in your life. If you have been waiting for the perfect time to clear out negative or unnecessary energy, today is your day! Things that have been held back or stagnant in your life will also begin to shift as a new chapter is beginning for all of us. Just as the seasons change, now externally to internally we will feel the powerful and spiritual effects of this energy upon us. This is due to the fact that on the March Equinox, the Sun moves into the first constellation of Aries. The astrological sign of Aries is a great start to help all of us in creating the courage and initiative to move forward in our lives and go after what we want! Aries is all about yourself image, how you see yourself and how you want others to see you.

.

Plant the seeds right now for whatever you want to manifest. Watch as your thoughts and actions water those seeds. At this time, Mother Nature is giving us extra fuel and guidance to help us on our paths. Moving forward this year is all about the oneness, focusing on grounding our bodies and creating a stable foundation to grow. It is all about the growth of those seeds planted, being secure in your beliefs and truths. Don’t dig up what you have now planted, as each of our journeys may not be easy – but it will create wonderful opportunities, embracing the positive energy infused with this swift vibrational shift that is occurring all around us. This symbolism is deeply rooted in the changing of seasons, representing the cycle of life, death, and rebirth. This equinox brings rebirth into your life, so take this energy and create your most wonderful version of your life.

.
So you may be wondering, how can you make the most out of this divine time with the spring equinox? One of my favorite things to do is a ritual where you can use crystals, sage, and write down some intentions. What you want to do is write out your intentions first, things that you want to start in this new chapter. You will then sage your room or house with the intention of clearing out all negative and unnecessary energy that is in your space. You can even sage yourself! Put out the sage stick safely on a plate (not plastic) or even outside in the dirt! At this point set up your crystals as you get ready to say your intentions out loud! Some ideas would be to put crystals around you in a circle as you sit or stand, or build a crystal grid. Then you want to say your intentions so the universe hears them and begins to you manifest them. Check out all of our clearing and cleansing tools here!

Throat Chakra Healing – Speak Your Truths!

           There are times in life that you may feel stifled by all the banter out there, being told what to do by other people who control your level of pay. Money isn’t the most important thing in life but it is the rules we live by from the material world. It is a sentiment of almost hitting a brick wall, not feeling able to express yourself properly out of fear. This could really pertain to any situation – maybe as a romantic relationship, or a family incident causing stress – it can be whatever you insert within the space that makes you feel incapable of expressing your true beliefs, wants, and ideas. This is problematic, because our frame of mind is only showing us one reality, when in actuality, this is not the case. If you express yourself and you feel that things are falling apart because of it, let it all fall. This is helping you shed anything and anyone that doesn’t align with your highest truth! This is part of our ascension and what we call into being. If we pretend to be fake, then we are not resonating with our true feelings and emotions. Therefore, everything we are affirming and attracting will be counterfeit.

           Stating your raw and real truths isn’t always easy, but we need to understand that this is a necessary part of our growth spiritually. Where are you trying to go on your journey? Who are you becoming? These are important questions to ask yourself when you look in the mirror because how we express ourselves, cultivates our identity. How we talk to ourselves also says a lot about the reality we are experiencing. When we have self-doubt, and talk down about ourselves it shifts the vibrational energy – creating negativity. This can block not only your throat chakra, but your sacral chakra – causing a blockage of creativity and birthing of ideas. Ultimately, we need to understand that EVERYTHING is connected. When you speak, account for what your mind says, but also what your heart says. Intention is everything and when you put your intent out there, it will manifest into reality.

          The throat chakra is also connected to one’s ability to hear, naturally as this is essential for communication. This area is also covered by psychic abilities of the third eye, as clairaudience will be enhanced by your communication skills! When we actually listen and reflect upon the words and expressions of others, we constructively respond with our own words and emotions. We can learn a great deal from this communication and understand ourselves better in terms of how we are viewed by the world. Sometimes these viewpoints will not be valid, as we should consider the source. But by using your intuition and ability to listen to your inner guidance, you will understand when the need to reflect upon listening is legitimate. Allow yourself to feel those emotions that you are expressing or someone has expressed, and then let it go! It will create so much more space for new, beautiful, and abundant opportunities in your life!

          Let your voice be heard and never underestimate your sense of self when expressing your desires, ideas and feelings! This is so important to keep our throat charka balanced and cultivate our communication skills. This will ensure our highest potential to ascend here on earth and cultivate a reality we absolutely love! Communication is essential!

The best crystals for the Throat Chakra are Blue Calcite, Blue Chalcedony, Blue Kyanite, Blue Lace Agate, Celestite, Angelite, Aquamarine, Turquoise, Amazonite, and Blue Tiger Eye!

The best oils for the Throat Chakra are Jasmine, Rosemary, and Sandalwood!

The total lunar eclipse will cleanse your emotions, and clear away old emotional baggage. Like a regular full moon only stronger, a lunar eclipse focuses your attention on intimate relationships, your home and your family. This will bring up any feelings that are unnecessary to your well-being, and clearly show you relationships with imbalance. This is a time of completion to balance your emotional self, aiding you in choosing between the crossroads. Your spiritual intuition will be heightened as you will be gaining information about your path on earth.  A window opens and we are drawn into ourselves, the part that we don’t show to the world, the emotional and deepest part of our psyche. This is a great time to allow love into your life, calling in your soulmate while releasing old emotional baggage.

This is the perfect time to finish a long-term goal, as luck is on your side to enhance your abilities of getting things done. This full moon will emanate special and rare feminine lunar energy, infused with the creativity, leadership, and dignity of Leo.  This is a time for new beginnings, bringing in fresh energy around you, creating new opportunities on your path. Embrace your creative self and the fact that you are an artist, making art everyday. This is a powerful time!!!!  Everything that you focus on during a FULL SUPERMOON is amplified and made stronger…So LOVE, and all of the above are absolutely attainable…Crystals to have on hand….Moonstone (I know you know) Green Aventurine, Carnelian, Rose Quartz

Here are some Essential Oils if you have them on hand and if not, we do!!!

Geranium for Love and Trust, Tangerine for Creativity, Ginger for Empowerment, Peppermint for a Joyful Heart, Thyme for Releasing which is the Full moon energy, and it is also for Forgiveness…Rose for Deep Love and the Heart, Lime for the Zest of Life…Juniper Berry to Face and Release your Fears…

Let this NEW YEAR happen and allow for all of the power and energy that is ours because we are plugged into the Universe.  That is our power source and this energy that is happening tomorrow night with this moon is not to be taken lightly if you want to release and manifest.

The moon will be 11degrees in Leo, in an 11 year (2018) and here we have again a chance to move thru the 11:11 portal…This is so exciting!!!

Reclaim Your Power – Solar Plexus Healing

             There may be times when you feel powerless or not good enough. You may be asking yourself, how did I get here? How do I regain my power? The answer is simple; you must believe and love yourself with no conditions. Even when people start to say negative things to you, do not believe them. They should not create your reality for you. If someone isn’t matching your positive vibrations, it is time to let go of that energy. Cut out anything that is unnecessary in your life that may be causing you to feel that you are “losing” your power. Although, it is to be known that really, you are not losing your power – for your power source is the essence of your own created energy. What are you affirming to the universe? What are you putting out there?

                If the answer is self-doubt, than that is exactly what you are attracting. The universe can only match the vibrations that are being reverberated from your thoughts, speech, and actions. Channel that higher guidance, ask for help and believe in your own ability to connect with spirit. Do not get down on yourself when things do not go as planned. Life moves in cycles, and every beginning ultimately has an ending. Those moments will pass and after that difficult cycle is over, you will see the serendipitous events that let you know you are a powerful creator of your reality. Although, it is important to recognize, you cannot “wait” for happiness, keep yourself in that loving energy and see how quickly everything shifts around you.

                If you feel drained check your energy source that generates from your power center. And where is this power center you may ask? It is in your gut, which is very fitting because when you are conceived, the first part of your physical body that forms is your stomach. The universe says this, what you give you must receive, so know your worth! Be kind, because how you feel about yourself will translate how you treat others. Spiritual energy transforms our self power, and affects everything around us. When we lose our power, we may feel less confident or negative about ourselves. This only feeds the fear within us and only brings down our energy to a level that cannot heal us, but actually can damage our vibrational power. Love with all of your heart, as this will not only raise and heal your own self, but also heal the people around you – demonstrating the true power you have in manifesting and raising the vibrations around you. Prepare yourself vibrationally to receive all that you deserve. Regain your power today and see how your life changes!

Crystals to help regain your Solar Plexus Power:

Citrine

Sunstone

Golden Labradorite

Golden Quartz

Tiger Eye

Oils that help reclaim power and aide in healing your Solar Plexus:

Clary Sage

Peppermint

Lavender

Lemon

Lemon Balm

Chamomile

Grapefruit

Marjoram

Juniper

Cedarwood

Black Pepper

Vetiver

You can also practice affirmations to raise your vibrational energy immediately and help reclaim your power by stating:

  • I have the ability to be confident and control my life
  • I have power
  • I am respectful of the emotions of others
  • I am positively empowered and successful
  • I am authentic
  • I feel great passion and purpose for life
  • I am a responsible being

The Law of Divine Oneness states that we are all ONE!

The Law of Divine Oneness states that we are all ONE!

They’re rubber…You’re glue…Everything you say sticks back to you

Nature, all of humanity, plants, EVERYONE!  Everything we think do or say has a direct effect on others.  Obviously this is because we are all energy and vibrating.

So here is an example:  Your partner is never on time.  This angers you.  Your first reaction is to yell and scream and be angry.  But stop for a second and think, if you were late. Do you want to be screamed at? And yes I realize this is recurring which becomes frustrating…so let’s look at it this way…

Since we are all connected and everything effects everything and everyone…wouldn’t this response make things work a little better.  

“we are always late for things and I know its not consciously done…but I feel awkward making excuses, what can we do to make sure this doesn’t always happen?”  So now, its not a conflict we are working as one to make the change together so nobody has to feel uncomfortable.  Clearly this takes some respect for the other persons feelings but you are now coming from a place of love and correcting the situation!  Remember, if you put the anger out to someone, it’s coming back to you.  Getting angry can ruin your day do you really want to start out that way?  I didn’t think so!  The world responds to you the way that you do!

When we are born and for quite a long time we are with parents and caregivers which gives us a sense of security and bonding.  As we get older and start school and being around peers a certain amount of that security is replaced by outside energies that change our energy to experience ourselves separate from others.  Its very subtle.  When you think of sound going out to the universe it never really stops but at some point you can’t hear it anymore but it is still there.

Its all about working together for the common good.  Service to others.  Its about coming from a place that you want others to come from.  Stop and think.  How would I like this to be presented to me.  It only takes a second or two to think…what im sending out I am bringing to me…in actions and words!

So the point here is and a solution is…Think and find the kindest way that you can resolve your differences with people.  Anger is a very uncomfortable feeling, its heavy, and draining and its not good for your liver.  

So today and all week, practice thinking before you react to things, find the common goal of the highest good of everyone involved and just this little step:

Am I coming from a place of Peace?

Am I coming from a place of LOVE?

Attracting what you want with ease!!

The Law Of Attraction and 

Using it not just hearing about it!

Week 1 Live With Phyllis and Kim

Wednesday January 3, 2018

Holistic Apothecary FB

 

Everyone knows we have laws.  But there is a set of Laws called Universal Laws.  They are not decided by a government or any one group.  They are aligned with the natural energy flow that surrounds us and moves through us all the time all our lives.  We get the most out of them when we don’t resist this source of energy.  We actually really control it with our thoughts every single second of our lives. They are easily accessed on the Internet and written maybe a word or two differently but the Law itself stays the same.  

In simple terms the Universal Laws can be described as the Dynamics of Energy Movement and how you can access and use them to your advantage in your life and achieve as much as you want!  And no one can take this ability away from you!

We have prepared an outline to help you to acquaint yourself with and begin to use these Laws to improve the quality of your life and happiness and to get to a place where you really realize and feel how Love is such a huge vibration for bringing things to us.  When we cut out all the sabotaging self talk.  When we learn to trust there is a power greater than us.  Stick with it and you will see the changes, synchronicity, stress reduced in your life, more ease in making decisions and a way to implement in your life the ability to “Go with the Flow”…. Today is about the Law Of Attraction

To begin…this week use the following steps to increase your awareness about your thoughts and that you want to give yourself YOU time!

First…Learn to quiet your mind.  If you’ve never practiced this before, start with 3 minutes and work your way up to at least 10 minutes.  This will allow you to relax and be in the moment you are working with.

Then…Picture what you want.  Be absolutely sure about what it is you want.  Do not doubt for a second that you are capable of getting it!  When you think of what you want you are literally putting an order out to the Universe with your thoughts and if you doubt your self you are sending a mixed frequency and you most likely won’t wind up with what you wanted!

Feel passionate and enthusiastic about what it is! 

Next…See it as already manifested and you have it already.  The more details you include the better.  If its your dream house, see yourself pulling up to it after work.  If its a new job you would love to do, see yourself doing it and loving it.  If its a special someone you desire, see yourself spending time with them, even getting that first kiss!!!

Now…Write it down as if you already have what you want.  Start with “I am so grateful that I live in my dream house.”  Every day write it down until it happens. Every day!  Close your eyes and see it as it happening and already there.

By Now..You should FEEL IT…act, walk around and think in terms as if you already have it.  If you do this, you are actually sending the message out that you have it already and it doesn’t look like you need it anymore!

Be Grateful for receiving all that you have.   Be thankful for what you have because the more you are thankful the more the universe wants you to have because you are thankful.  Be thankful for everything.  Parking spaces, your favorite shirt on sale, the call you were waiting for happened…you didn’t get the promotion you wanted but you find out you would have to move to Alaska and you didn’t want that…say THANK YOU!

Last but absolutely not least TRUST…Know without any shadow of a doubt that there is a power greater than us.  Don’t  Ask and then allow for the universe to make it happen at exactly the right time and for all the right reasons.  Don’t worry about how.  It’s already worked out, it just hasn’t manifested yet.  If you worry, its like telling the Universe you don’t think they can bring you what you asked for and that cancels it out.  If you think for one second, that the Universe is not as powerful as it is…that will block everything.

So….Start with something that you really want to achieve.  Put these steps into practice and be open to all that is available and realize how much power you have over your own life and all that you are surrounded by!

Let us know if you need some assistance!  Feel free to inbox either one of us and we will get back to you asap!!!  Each week we will examine different Universal Laws to help you to get in sync and move forward on your journey with Faith, Trust and Love in your life!

How do we know….WE JUST DO IT!

 

Do things that make you really happy.  Have pictures around or affirmations next to the mirror where you brush your teeth.  Think happy thoughts. Change the frequency of what you are putting out!  Jump around dance and scream and just feel all the joy!  In order to make this work, focus on simple things first to integrate these steps and then when you see that they work, pretty quickly, you will learn to trust and have faith.  That’s huge. Focus as often as you can on what you DO want not on what you don’t want. If you are angry or upset about an issue that has been going on, and angry focus on Peace.  At that exact moment choose it!  Think of what you do want.  If your focus stays on what you don’t want thats where the energy will go.

Feel the Love for having what you wanted.  Love is the highest of all vibrations and the fact is that all desires are heart felt and this is where we send out what we want.

Be patient.  It may not be a day or a week or a couple weeks even.  The minute you have doubt, that is how you cancel out what you dreamed and asked the universe for.

 

 

 

 

 

True balance

By Phyllis Greco Bucci and Kim Henderson

Adapted from a Facebook Live event

Today we’re talking about balance, not necessarily healthwise, but your thoughts and desires and the steps that you’re taking be aligned with what your desires are. The times you can relate to being out of balance, when you’re around people, or a situation, or a job that you’re in that just feels uncomfortable. Are you staying in something just because it feels safe? Something feeling safe does not mean that it’s in balance. It just means, in your mind, that you don’t have to deal with that discomfort.
 
 
You have to recognize if you’re feeling stuck. I know for many years I felt stuck, and I wasn’t even quite sure what that meant. You feel like you’re treading water. It stays with you, telling you that you’re not in balance.
 
 
All of these things Kim is mentioning have to do with things that create stress in our life. Stress really is an internal thing, it’s not an external thing. The stress isn’t out here, the stress is what you’re perceiving all of this to be. Stress changes the feelings in the body.
 
 
When you think of being in balance, you can think of a seesaw. When you’re in balance, both weights on both sides are equal. But if your dreams are up here and your desire is down here, then it’s not going to get to that balance until you start putting your intentions out there. Over and over we talk about this energy that’s out there, this power that’s out there, that we can’t see. It’s invisible. But the more you send out thoughts, the more this invisible energy becomes what you’re thinking. When you really know this fact to be true and you use it for the first time… it really brings to you what you put out. That’s when you really start to use it.
 
 
If you’re going to go over repetitive thoughts that are bringing you the same frustration, the same stuckness, the same lower feelings that are giving your power away, in fact you are being dishonest with yourself – because you aren’t feeling balanced with what’s going on. Until you realize that fact, that you’re actually bringing these things to you by not letting those thoughts go…
 
 
It goes back to what I said last week — Did you practice feeling peace and love in your heart? Did you go out and toss your ego away? Ego is a huge imbalancer. It stops us from enjoying what’s going on because we have to feel like we’re the first, we’re the quickest, all that ego stuff, you have to let it go!
 
 
On Mother’s Day, there were things that came up first thing in the morning. I had a very specific plan; I wanted my kids to go and I wanted to walk with my walking club. Well, my kids didn’t get up. But I was going to walk with my club regardless if they come. Even my husband didn’t know what to do. But I said, “Listen this is my day.” That was not being selfish, that was me being me. I’m going with my walking club and we went to the start where I met all of my other friends. I could have let resistance come up. Instead I was letting go of my expectations of what I wanted my kids to do because it wasn’t about them. It was about me, being true to who I am. I’ve been stepping into my authentic self, which is leading to balance in my life.
 
 
Shed the notion that selfish is bad. It’s just putting yourself first, which is really important. You have to stop thinking of what people think you should be doing. That is a huge stressor, and stress is what really causes so much imbalance in our lives, which leads to anger, frustration… And ultimately leads to you medicating yourself for insomnia, anger, depression, and then you’re just numbing yourself with medication. Well, how are you supposed to find balance in things if you’re numbing yourself? Medication throws off the normal flow and consistency of balance and homeostasis in the body.
 
I had a friend call me this morning and she said, I think I need to be a little selfish today. I said, “That’s great, why are you making it such a bad thing?” The minute I said hello to her, I knew something was wrong. She sounded really out of balance. I could feel in her voice, the imbalance of who I know her to be as her happy, aligned, self-fullfilling self. She felt guilty. Instead, she should have been celebrating that she’s going to honor herself, and be her genuine self, this is what we need.
 
How many of other people’s things can you stuff? There goes your scales again. You’re feeling balanced, then someone does something and you stuff it. This is never going to get balanced until you let that stuff go. You need to release that energy rather than store that up.
“What other people think of you is none of your business.”
-Wayne Dyer
 
I think a lot of you by now are more aware of what you’re thinking, and what your response will be. Use affirmations: “My mind is at peace. I am at peace. I am a peaceful being.”  All of these things bring your energy field into a more peaceful place. It’s a matter of harnessing the energy out there and own it, own that this energy is available to us. It’s amazing how doors open, how the right people come into your life. It’s also about forgiveness and letting go of that rope around your neck.
 
 
Step back, really observe the situation, assess it and as you said, “I know that God’s going to get me through this.” Look at what you’ve come through, survived, and how much wiser you are for it. You’ve raised your ability to face these things and look at them more positively and know that this energy is available to us. You can’t say that you’re not wiser from it, wiser in the fact that this ability to balance our lives and go forward is so much more available to us. I think that the more we hold ourselves accountable for everything that happens, it really brings you into what you’re projecting.. you really understand it’s coming from this Source. When you’re aligned with Source, that’s when this balance starts to happen. The more balance, the more balance arises.
 
 

Find and use your spirituality

By Phyllis Greco Bucci and Kim Henderson

Adapted from a Facebook Live event

Today we’ll talk about finding and using your spirituality, enabling yourself to move through life without all the burdens we throw on ourselves by thinking too much, being in our human minds instead of in our real place on the earth — as a spiritual being. We are a spirit being having a human experience. A lot of this happens in reflection, meditation, out in Nature, as opposed to being in Center City. Not that Center City can’t be beautiful, but the energies are so different.

 

If we let ourselves go with the flow, and work from our spiritually divine place, life’s just easier. When we don’t think so much, we don’t stress so much.

I’ve been doing some walking meditations at the park in Norristown. During that time, just listening to the birds and the wind. The one day last week, I was mindful of my steps and the noise it was making and then the sun was coming on a diagonal through the trees. I almost felt dizzy. I stopped and took it all in and felt truly present.

 

When your mind is not scattered and overwhelmed by everything around you (people talking, driving), you can get to a place of “no thing’ where the energy is able to come through the body without any disturbance or obstacles. You actually feel it and it can be sometimes overwhelming, you might get lightheaded or dizzy, but it’s the most amazing feeling.

 

It’s a reminder to get in those states more often. Take the time to get aligned. If you have to, take a short bathroom break to collect yourself! Wayne Dyer has a wonderful meditation on his Getting in the Gap CD, he was a pioneer of getting this message across. He walks you through the “Our Father” prayer, and he has you say the words and stop in between. You say “Our Father,” then stay in that space, before you get to the part, ‘who art in heaven.”

 

Nobody knows where “no thing” is… It’s one of the most amazing spaces you can be in, it lets your body unfold and unwind in that space. That unwinding gives you a chance to let go and release stuff that’s stuck on you from external places. I had a couple women here who had never tried singing bowls, so I had them play them for a couple minutes. I explained that it makes all of the energy that’s toxic release like a volcano, you can feel it rolling off your body.

 

The more worldly things you let go, the more you begin to bare your soul, to go deep within and find that place of divine spirituality. I had a client this morning say they aren’t intuitive. I said, “Yes you Are! Everybody is, you can’t be born without intuition. It’s the energy that keeps you alive every day. Whether you develop it is up to you, and it’s never to late to develop it.” I asked him, “When you shake someone’s hand, can’t you feel their energy and know who they are? Or, if the phone rings, you think, “Oh my god, that’s Karen” and that’s who it is! Did you ever think of someone you haven’t seen in a long time, and you go into Wawa and there they are?” Finally, that resonated with him.

 

Do you understand, that is your connection energetically to that person’s energy. We are all connected, whether you know it or not, whether you believe it or not, whether you like it or not. We are all connected, because we are all made from the same Source, the same source that gives us our pharmacy from God, that same Source that gives us all of our gifts… that we really have. Wouldn’t it be nice, in kindergarten and first grade, if we learned about our gifts, and then went on to learn all the technical stuff that we do need to know? At least find out what we can do on our own first.

 

That’s finding your spirituality. Understanding these gifts we have and using them to make your life everything you want it to be.

 

When you’re in that divine alignment, you feel it. Life gets simpler, stress gets lower, you’re just in tune, you feel like you’re in the flow. The bottom line is, you can label yourself any way you want, but you are connected to this Source of energy… which is connected to everything around you. Now it’s time to use it and really understand your own connection to it. Spirituality is not religion.  Spirituality is your very own connection to your beliefs, your knowing, your God or Creator, and from there develop. We’re here to serve, we are each here to learn certain wisdoms.

Finding that Peaceful Space

By Phyllis Greco Bucci and Kim Henderson

Adapted from a Facebook Live event

Welcome! Today we’re talking about staying in that peaceful space that you’ve made for yourself without outside influence—feeling peace enough that it becomes a natural part of your day. I hope that you have started meditating a little bit, even if it’s 5 minutes a day. Or in a stressful situation, saying to yourself:

         “In this moment I choose peace instead of conflict.”

 

There are plenty of tools to use in order to be able to find peace, even in the most difficult of situations.  A lot of times when conflict happens to me, I take that couple minutes of time. You hear people say they don’t have time to meditate… but if you keep going in the direction of discord, your whole day is going to spin out. You might as well take a couple minutes to get a hold of it, even if you’re running late. What makes you think that you’re not worthy of taking some time for yourself? Even if it’s first thing in the morning. You wake up and say,

         “Thank you for a brand new day. I know that my day is going to go smoothly no matter what. Just for today, I’m not going to judge anything that happens. I’m just going to go with the flow. I’m going to not think too much.”

The Chakra System

 

That doesn’t mean don’t think about what you have to do. Not thinking means not over-thinking. It’s more really learning to listen, in a steady stream listening to that little voice of intuition that you’ve hopefully become acquainted with. We can’t impress upon you more how important it is to start listening to your intuition, because that energy really does put a whole bubble of energy around you.

 

I’ve had several situations in this last week. I am more and more authentic to myself, so I am speaking my truth more often. In one scenario I spoke with the person and said my peace, which wasn’t comfortable for me. In the end it felt great. I felt as though for both parties it was relief. Then there was another scenario at work, there were three things in a row that happened. I had to stop myself and say,

         “What am I thinking in the moment to bring all of this on at the same time?”

 

Then I laughed, because the fourth thing happened and I was stuck in rush hour traffic on Henry Ave. I really do look at being stuck in traffic as, “Okay, you need to just be there and sit in it until you can process what has happened.” You know what? The minute you let go of something that’s heavy on your mind and you hear it out loud, it frees you, and it lightens how you feel. It makes the next time you need to talk to someone and express your feeling (even if it’s not something they will love) easier, and you can do it.

Practice
Say “I choose to stay in my peace.” Then, intention a clear globe around you and see yourself inside of this bubble. Try to visualize and keep yourself in that place all day long.
Make a list of all the things you want to do each day.
Let go of judgment. Forgive those that have wronged you and let it go. Ask for their healing. By asking for their healing, you let go of any emotions that you were connected to with them or things they brought into your life. You are able to disconnect.

 

When you really start to use intention to bring things into your life and bring yourself peace, it’s instantaneous. You can start to feel in your body the difference of letting things go and feeling really light. A woman came to me today for a number of different things, and one of the things on her intake form was, she’s having a lot of sensitivity to light lately. I said to her:  “What don’t you want to see?”  Because of the season, we’re having more light. This is an absolute sign we are getting more information. The sun (as much as people like to think it gives us cancer and makes us sick, it doesn’t!!) the sun gives everything life. What I want her to be most aware of is, if she’s stopping the light… because the more you can separate from the chatter and allow information to come in, the more you’re going to be at a place where you’re vibrating at a higher level, and lower vibrational influences won’t grab you so much.

Pretty soon, peace is the only place you’re going to be. The people or influences around you that aren’t as peaceful will start to not integrate in your life anymore.

 

What does peace mean to you? When it comes down to it, figure out what it is that gives you peace. Ancient civilizations depended on the sun, moon, and stars and planet positions to survive. To plant, harvest, to take cover. Now somehow that became sorcery and witchery. No! It is what it is. Because they’re free tools and healthy tools, they’ve been hidden for so long.

 

Make a deal with yourself, just for today, you’re going to practice peace. Think about where your most peaceful places are, write down what peace means to you. When a situation comes up, look to find the peace in the situation. Look at the peaceful possibilities that could come out of this. Change your perception so that you can see whatever upheaval is happening, it’s happening because a clearing needs to take place before you’re clear sailing.

  • Where do you want to be in a month?
  • Where do you want to be in a year?
  • What changes need to be implemented in your life to find that?
  • What’s stopping you from thinking about these things?
  • Is your job too stressful?
  • Is there a situation you’re not speaking up about?
  • Are you letting people influence you to not really carry out what’s important to you?

 

Take a leap, wing it. We wing it all the time! That’s the excitement of it, the mystery of it, the fun of it. Let it flow!

Plan out what you want, the way you want it and the timing you want it. Look at steps you can start taking. Start speaking your peace and living as authentically as you can. Going with the flow and taking that leap of faith is huge. As long as you keep peace in that inner alignment, things just flow, they really do!

 

 

Self-talk or Self-Sabotage?

By Phyllis Greco Bucci and Kim Henderson

Welcome! Today we’re talking about being assertive, and I think being assertive has a lot to do with what you’re thinking in your head you’re going to say, and how you’re going to say it. How do you speak to yourself when you want to do or change something you want to do? Is it self-talk or self-sabotage? Are you egging yourself on, or are you putting up blocks for a new opportunity or something you need to speak to someone?

Do you judge what you’re thinking of saying in your head? Let’s say a situation could be awkward, and you may not want to come to terms with the fact that you have to say it, so you’re premeditating in your mind what you’re going to say.  Forget all of the doubts in your head saying:

What if this doesn’t work out?

What if I say this and they get mad?

Stop all of the excuses. If you need to change something, and you’re still struggling, you need to figure out how you’re talking to yourself, because we are in a time where our inner power is at a different level. We’ve come to a place where we’ve let a lot of things go, we’ve learned how to handle outer situations and not let them affect us as much. We’ve started to take more responsibility for things in our life. Our inner energy and power is growing. It’s a good time to be assertive!  And we have a little more clarity in our thoughts and executing the information to other people, so it’s a new self-strength we have to get used to.

I think that we’re feeling so much lighter because of all the work we’ve been doing on ourselves to go within, speak our truth, not let other people have an influence on what we do (or say). Shedding all of this brings us to a whole new frequency, and I think it actually makes us more assertive because we have fewer things holding us back. We’re much more truthful about our feelings. Assertive doesn’t have to be a mean thing. Assertive is just saying your feelings and not allowing anything else to interfere with what you’re going to say.

We talked before about your authentic self. I’ve found it takes a minute to stop and think, “Who am I in this moment?”  If you’re not asserting what you want, you’re giving up your freedom. Then you’re going to build up resentments in your heart that will stop things from flowing. And the bottom line is, those are your thoughts making that happen, not the other person. It’s a huge effort to finally take the blame off the other person.

By now, you’ve let go of old hurts and let go of old angers, and you’re a much lighter being than you were.

 You’re stronger now.

We’ve started to learn to use this inner knowing, so now you’re at a place where you have to assert what you’ve gathered from doing all this self-help work.

It’s like being on a pendulum, where we have done the things that other people wanted us to do for so long, that you get caught up in it. You have to take it back the other way and really figure out what it is you want. How do you speak to yourself about your worthiness, to be able to receive those things, to be able to center yourself again and know, this is the way I want my life to go?

In being assertive, you need to fine tune and be aware of exactly where your feelings are coming from, and where those words are coming from. A little twist on this: I had a conversation with somebody today about how flower essences have the vibrational healing ability to neutralize emotions in past, present, and future. He looked at me. I said, think about this: Where do a lot of your emotions come from? You can’t even pinpoint it. You are a lineage of genetics from millions of years ago. So all of the things that happened to our ancestors at some level of cellular memory happened to us. So a lot of times, the way we face something or think of something, it is actually that old thinking. We don’t know where it came from, but we really do know. So we’re not just carrying our stuff, we are carrying millions of years of stuff.

You also have to claim your own responsibility.

If you are letting things happen to you, then stop being a victim.

Assert yourself, say what you need to say, and move on.

And there’s never a reason to feel like somebody should get angry with you because you asserted yourself. Stop looking at assertiveness as egotistical. I know in consults if I didn’t assert myself, and really explain where my thinking is coming from, people would have a really hard time with it. But it’s not an egotistical thing.  Always ask for divine guidance when you need to assert yourself. Stop thinking that this is only reserved for a chosen few. 

Ask when you’re meditating in the morning, ask to come from a place of love and healing. It’s really about the inner dissolving of all the old ways.  So get a real good grip on where your feelings are coming from, then say what you have to say, and do what you have to do. Stop relying on other people to get things done for you.

And not everybody’s going to understand and accept every single thing that you do. When you let go of your judgment you’ll stop running into people who are judging you. A lot of people feel uncomfortable claiming their strength, claiming their knowing or their powers, but why would anybody want to hold back on owning their power, their strength, and their wisdom? Be strong.

We’re so happy you joined us today. Come on over and hang out, there’s lots of fun things to do! Thank you, we love you!
