A Quick Story of ______ 🙏

I was reading through my journal today. Once in a while I like to look back at what I wrote because it reminds me of how far I’ve come. Sometimes, like tonight I’ll even make connections that I wasn’t aware of before.

May 8th, 2018 I wrote “I feel compelled to write a few things; past lives, bring four roses to the cemetary, and fear that I will never be good enough for my parents”.

At the time I wondered why I would bring 4 roses to the cemetary. My grandpa had passed away six weeks before, and he was buried with his son (my uncle) and another uncle of mine was also buried closeby. But unless my math is failing me, that’s only 3.

Fast forward to May 24th, 2018. Two weeks later and my aunt passes away. She will be buried with her late husband, my uncle.

Not long after that, with a heavy heart, I brought those 4 roses.

Inner knowing? Psychic awareness? Intuition? Messages from Angels? Synchronicity? Whatever it is, it’s alive and well over here. ❤🌙

10 Ways to Know You’re Aligned With Your Purpose(s) 😉❤

For most of us talking about our life’s purpose feels so daunting. How can I, a simple small town girl have some incredible “life purpose”?! It sounds so intense, and responsible. What if I fail? I don’t want to have that kind of weight on my shoulders!

But what if we change our perspective a little… What if we (as individuals) don’t have this one distinct, life changing purpose in our lives? Instead our lives are built upon situations, choices, relationships that within each and every one of them has a life purpose. What if the world is littered with gazillions of smaller purposes? Each one of them as meaningful as the last. If you think about it every relationship we have serves a purpose, every job, maybe even every conversation. The relationships for example, even the worst ones have taught us something, and that was their purpose!

Even if we choose something that is not directly aligned with the universe, there is still a purpose there. There is a purpose in everything. So relax. There is no pressure here. You may just be re-routed a few times, and you may feel off balance when you aren’t aligned.

The only thing that we’re asked to do is recognize and challenge ourselves to understand these purposes, and take the lessons that we need from each of them, so that we don’t need to keep repeating the same patterns over and over. When we do this we start to live a life that is aligned with the universe. We start to live authentically. This is where we find success, happiness, joy and love. Ultimately, this is the highest life purpose for each of us.

So how can we know that we are following our purpose? That we are working towards aligning our lives? Simple, our intuition. Intuition ALWAYS tells us what is best, not only for us, but for humanity as a whole. Here are 10 signs that will confirm you are aligned with your intuition;

  1. You follow things that feel light and bright
  2. You get gut feelings, or feelings in your chest that are an inner knowing, and that never need an explanation
  3. Your chest and shoulders feel open and airy (rather than tight and constricted)
  4. Situations in your life continue to happen, until you finally make another choice
  5. Little signs keep showing you big things
  6. You feel inspired, excited about life
  7. The clock keeps showing you the same numbers; 11:11, 4:44, 5:55 etc…
  8. You daydream things (or have dreams at night) that are actually coming true
  9. You think about someone and then they call or text a minute later (Careful with this one, it could also be a test which inspires your lesson and your purpose)
  10. The word “intuition” brings a lightness to your soul ❤✌

WTF is a Crown Chakra?!

Seventh and final blog in this mini-series of WTF for the chakra-impaired. Once you finish this post you should have a pretty good idea about which of your chakras needs the most help and which are actually pretty balanced… atleast for today. Learning about the chakras was a total game changer for me. My mind/body/soul awareness meter definitely hit a new high score. Once you can feel that a chakra is off balance it’s easy to work with it. Start wearing the colour associated with that chakra, meditate with corresponding crystals, say the affirmations, go for a Reiki or Chakra Balancing session. And honestly, just Google it – find something that works for you if these suggestions aren’t enough.

The Crown Chakra (or Sahasrana) is located at the very top of our head – where we would wear a crown. It’s the last chakra in the ladder, and in my opinion the most important. This chakra is our direct link to spirituality and the universal  source. It is our connection to spirit and their world, the divine and enlightenment. The Crown Chakra connects us to our higher selves. The colour associated here is white, or violet.

Crown 👑 = top of head = spirituality = white light energy (or Source)

When our Crown Chakra is balanced we know that we are a part of the collective, and we are connected to and are interested in a higher purpose. We are confident that we have a place, and purpose in this world. We have a clear vision and know that we are spiritually awake.

When this chakra is unbalanced we can feel mentally, spiritually and physically disconnected;

Mentally ➡️confused, unfocused, cynical, close-minded, unsatisfied with anything in life, depressed, bored, self-limiting beliefs…

Spiritually ➡️loss of faith, distrusting or disbelieving in a higher power, very materialistic and ego driven, no feeling of purpose…

Physically ➡️disconnected from sensations in your body, headaches/migraines, sensitivity to light. This Crown Chakra is associated with the brain, the pituitary gland, the endocrine system, the central nervous system and the cerebral cortex. An imbalance may lead to neurological dksorders, dementia, Parkinson’s etc…

20180515_121909.jpg

To bring the Crown Chakra back in to balance sit in silence in the sun. Thought and light are elements that fuel this chakra. Use Amethyst, Clear Quartz and Selenite to meditate, and repeat the affirmations below. For the Crown Chakra especially, it is extremely important to develop a consistent, spiritual routine.

For myself, I’m getting in the groove of reading before I go to sleep, waking up and lighting an incense and candle and sitting in silence in front of my altar. Then I do a card reading. I do meditations about 4 times a week, but I want to be more vigilant with this and get back to every day. Find what works for you, and what you truly enjoy doing that makes you feel connected, and build a routine around that ✌️❤️

WTF is a Third Eye Chakra?!

Sixth blog in this mini-series of WTF for the chakra-impaired. Almost Done! Kind reminder time; it takes more than just reading these posts to balance your chakras. The real work is up to you, especially at this phase in the game. Do your research! The intention for this series is to give you a quick snapshot of each chakra so that you can start to pay more attention to your body and know what each chakra works with. Secondly, if you don’t know what I mean when I say “chakra” there is a “WTF is a Chakra” post at the beginning of this series. Read it first.

The Third Eye Chakra (brow chakra or Ajna) is located on the forehead directly in the centre of your eyebrows (or unibrow for some – no judgment). This chakra packs the punch. Not only is it my favourite colour – like a deep purple/blue but it’s the main point of entry for the universal life force energy. Meaning energy enters our body through our Third Eye and this chakra distributes the energy throughout our body. The Third Eye Chakra is known as the seat of intuition, wisdom and spiritual insight. It provides us with an entirely new way of seeing.

introverted-intuition
So… Third Eye, in between your other eyes – sees beyond what the other two see – intuition – and I think you’ll just need to remember that its deep purple because I’m stumped for some clever way to remember that. Comment below if you’re more creative than me 😉

Our Third Eye Chakra brings us a whole new level of awareness when it’s balanced. Our thinking and our vision becomes more clear, and inevitably that allows us to focus on the bigger picture with ease. When it’s unbalanced it can leave us feeling unmotivated, depressed, anxiety ridden and fearful of the unknown. We will remain stuck in problem thinking and will feel a gigantic block in our intuition and our psychic abilities. Someone who hasn’t awoken their Third Eye Chakra will feel stuck in the daily grind of every day life (yuck). They might lack inspiration and clarity and be unable to establish any sort of vision for themselves or their lives. Monotonous everything.

Physically an imbalance can effect the brain, eyes, and pituitary glands. This can lead to migraines, seizures, sinusitis, poor vision, sciatica and problems regulating or getting to sleep.

Someone with a blocked Third Eye will likely reject all things spiritual. Or they may believe in God, but shut down everything else that may require a deeper connection and some imagination. The Third Eye Chakra allows us to see in to the spiritual realm. It is linked to psychic abilities like Clairvoyance and Clairaudience. When it’s in balance we are connected, we are wise, intuitive, and magical.

To awaken our Third Eye Chakra it is incredibly important to meditate as often as possible. There are hundreds of meditations on YouTube you can try. I started with guided visualizations and then moved to just music where I can do my own visualizations. I find these to be very powerful in developing your third eye. Pay attention to the ways in which it feels and looks different when you are using your third eye, as opposed to eye #1 and #2. For me, even the thoughts I have change. Don’t be discouraged when the things you witness with your third eye are hard to explain or describe to someone else. Use your intuition!! Really reign in on what your inner voice and your gut are telling you, and don’t question it or doubt yourself.

Another way to build your psychic powers and awaken your third eye is through divination tools. Use Oracle Cards or a Pendulum. Talk to Spirit, ask for help. Participate in a moon ritual – the Full Moon is a fantastic time to open this chakra.

Lapis Lazuli, Lavender Quartz, Purple Fluorite and Lepidolite are crystals that I like to use with the Third Eye Chakra. You can hold them (or even charge them) with these affirmations;

WTF is a Chakra?!

Chakras. Energy. Universal Life Force. WTF?

Here’s your simple guide to chakras and how understanding these golden nuggets can help you heal your life. Trust me, it will change everything.

Before we even touch on the chakras we need to get a basic understanding of Energy. Remember Grade 10 Science? Nah, me either. Well basically it tells us that the entire universe is energy. The chair you’re sitting on, the tree outside your window, the clip in your hair, the clouds, that annoying dog that keeps barking… And You.

Energy = life force = universal matter = prana (that’s yoga speak). Gazillions of neurons bouncing off each other. It’s teeny weeny and it’s everywhere. There is absolutely no escaping it.

Humans are made up of this universal life force and chakras are the energy centres (some say spiritual power centres) inside of us. Basically they regulate our energy. Picture little wheels (which is actually the Sanskrit translation of “chakra”) in different areas of your body. They spin and spin and distribute the energy. There are 100+ chakras in our bodies, but we are simple humans so we focus mainly on 7. We start at the base of our spine and work the way up to the top of our heads.

bigstock-Young-and-healthy-girl-meditat-154208054

So the wheels turn in each of these 7 areas and distribute the energy throughout our bodies. Sometimes these wheels (the chakras) get blocked, spin too quickly or too slowly, or shut down completely. These have spiritual, emotional and physical impacts on us. When our chakras are balanced and the energy is free to move throughout our bodies we live a healthy and harmonious life. Rainbows and butterflies basically.

Don’t get too excited, no one can live on cloud 9 for long. Every day, several times a day, 1 or 7 of our chakras will become off balance. We carry too much crap for it to be any other way. The important thing is that we pay attention.

How Can Understanding Chakras Help Us Heal?

Anytime that we have a better understanding of what’s going on inside our bodies we have a greater chance of healing. Take a moment right now and focus your attention to your body. Close your eyes and feel the energy coursing through you. In which areas does the energy feel heavier? Blocked? Flowing freely? If the energy feels tight between your rib cage then you likely have some work to do with your Solar Plexus Chakra. Think about what’s been going on in your life. Is there something threatening your sense of belonging? Your personal identity? Have you been feeling less confident lately? Are you having issues digesting your meals?

Once you can understand chakras in general and then each chakra separately you can figure out exactly what needs to be addressed to bring yourself back to alignment and ultimately work towards healing. Working with your chakras can also be a preventative measure to avoid illness.

If you are curious, and just too darn lazy to try to figure it out yourself, have a practitioner do a Chakra Assessment and Balancing Technique for you.

crystal-ther

I really enjoy getting a Reiki session, or doing it on myself to figure out where I’m off balance. When I first started understanding the chakras, I couldn’t get out of the house fast enough to join a course. I learned a Chakra Assessment and Balancing Technique and took Level 1 and 2 Reiki within one month. My body detoxed rather quickly and cleared old blockages so that the energy could move more freely.

But the real work is in addressing the core issues that are troubling us and throwing our chakras out of whack all the time. No matter how much we detox, if those core issues are still present we will always be dealing with stuck energy.

In my next few blogs ill go chakra by chakra and discuss what these issues are (spiritually, emotionally and physically) and how we can help to bring them back in to balance ✌️❤️

 

10 Things Turning 30 Has Taught Me

Birthdays – a time of year people celebrate with friends and family, receive gifts and get old. Also a time when we determine exactly what we should have achieved by our next birthday, and beat ourselves up for not having achieved what we set out to the year before. As my 31st birthday approaches I thought it would be appropriate to share with you some key tidbits from this past year – things turning 30 has taught me.

1. IT’S NOT WHAT IT’S CRACKED UP TO BE

First off, turning 30 was a really big deal to me. It felt like 30 was the age that everything is supposed to come together – your career, your school loans are paid off, you’re married, you own a house and have kids running around and if not at least you’re pregnant. For most of us that is certainly not the case, nor does it need to be!

2. 30 IS A DEADLY TRAP OF COMPARISONS

As 30 approached last year I was terrified because I had none of these things. I found myself in the deadly trap of comparison. I saw other happy couples out walking their dogs and people from high school running successful businesses and I wanted to hate them. But instead I turned that frustration inward and started judging and resenting myself.

2f43f299c6e2b105062209d5c484f984

3. 30 IS A MARKETING COMPANY’S WET DREAM

Here is a a woman who has just turned 30. She put a lot of pressure on herself to achieve things society told her she should have before her ass starts to sag and she is no longer appealing. Now she’s a woman who resents herself so much that she is willing to do anything – pay anything just to feel better. Que the infomercials and magazine ads.

4. YOU AREN’T A FAILURE JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE NOT “THRIVING” AT 30

I felt like a total failure because the perfect 30 life wasn’t mine. And then I felt even worse when what I had achieved (a career, an apartment and a relationship that I thought would last forever) all fell away at the drop of a hat when I was 30 and a half. Society wants me to be ashamed of that. To be ashamed that I’m not living a white picket fenced kind of lifestyle. That I’m not financially stable or married. That my boobs seem lower then they were when I was 29. That I have crows feet and laugh lines. Oh and grey hair! But I am not ashamed! Not of anything! In fact I am so empowered!

5. 30 IS THE NEW 20

I am a woman going in to her 31st year without her ducks in a row. I don’t have my shit together and I’m not afraid to admit that. How can anyone expect us to go to school, get a decent job, pay off loans, buy a house and get married in this day and age? The housing market is a disaster. We have to go to school for 30 years just to get an entry level position (exaggeration but you get the point). The expectations are unrealistic.

6. INTERNAL WORK IS THE ONLY JOB THAT WILL EVER REALLY MATTER

We work our asses off trying to get this perfect 9-5 job, but right now I am doing the hardest work there is to do. I am digging deeper internally and more feverishly, more fearlessly than most people will ever do in their lifetimes. The external stuff means nothing to me. People might look at me right now and think I need to get my priorities straight (even my parents, so don’t worry I don’t judge that comment – you’re entitled to think what you want) and although I appreciate your concern, I honestly don’t give a shit. If you’re feeling brave enough I invite you to drop your resume and embrace this job!

1cb7a1eee4fba35a82d0f933a93c5f33.png

7. 30 IS THE TIME TO GET TO KNOW YOURSELF FULLY

After living for 30 years you’ve likely gained some insight as to who you are, and what works or doesn’t work well with you. If you’re anything like me you’ve learned you’re garbage at setting boundaries and following your intuition. But 30 is the time to really get your ass in gear and start honouring this. You’re an adult. Stop wasting your time. Get to know yourself, and fully own everything about you.

8. BEING PROUD ISN’T A BAD THING

I am proud of the woman I am today, and the woman I am becoming. And I will not apologize for taking the time I need to work on myself internally. I am unapologetic in my pursuit of self discovery. And I wish the same for you too!

9. WE LIMIT OURSELVES UNINTENTIONALLY

As it turns out, turning 30 wasn’t a total waste of time. Once I stopped comparing myself to others and trying to conform to the “ideal”. Turning 30 completely changed my life. Open your mind to possibilities beyond what you’ve imagined your life to look like at 30. The Universe has something better planned. Open yourself to that now!

10. 31 IS EVEN BETTER

This year I am really looking forward to my birthday. I am so excited to turn 31. This is a new kind of a birthday for me. It represents the first birthday I’ve ever had as a woman in her power. As a woman embracing her age, her wisdom, her wildness, and her authenticity. I’m taking all of the lessons I’ve learned this year and jumping head first into the next.

Happy (almost) Birthday to Me! ✌️❤️😀

I Let My Soul Explore 🌹

I left today,

On a journey I planned a long time ago.

I left without needing approval

I left without fear.

Alone I felt powerful.

People wouldn’t know,

The strength it took to get out of bed

The pills and pain I had to swallow.

People don’t know.

How hard it is to listen,

How hard it is to talk,

How hard it is.

I took one step

And then seven

And slowly synchronicity surrounded.

I started following the pulls.

I’m here now,

I’m adventuring,

I’m listening to my soul, feeding it,

The soul I lost for so long.

Through the fire.

Through the burnout.

It was waiting,

To explore, to awaken.


I’m not a poet by any means, but I wrote this today, as a representation of my journal entries for the two weeks following my break up. It just felt right to express it in this way.

In that time I had given my 60 days notice, I had asked my parents about moving back in with them (not my most empowering moment) and I planned an escape. I packed my bag for 10 days, and decided I would go with the flow. I didn’t have any money, I wasn’t allowed to leave the country as I was still on a leave from work and I had literally no patience being around people. My doctor had recently started me on antidepressants, and the effects were minimal at this point.

My cousin, who I only see at Christmas, had graciously offered me a bed at her house in a city that I used to love, so I started there. I made a conscious decision to say Yes – to follow the universe, to be guided, to show up to MY life, for me. And things started to happen. Little things, big things, wild things – they all just started happening. I so randomly bumped in to my best friends from 10 years earlier, and even after all that time had passed, they still felt like home. The synchronicity of this experience had me dumbfounded. The universe was starting to bring me back to me, the real, core, true me. I was starting to feel inspired, and alive in a different way than I ever had before.

For the first time in a very, very long time I followed my heart. I allowed my soul to explore. I asked myself – what do I want to do right now – and then I would do it! What do I want to eat – and I would eat it! I sat by the lake and felt the crisp wind on my face. I went in to a year round costume shop and tried on Victorian ballgowns (so fun(ny). I navigated a museum of nature and found an entire floor of crystals. I attended a spiritual service and did a beautiful meditation. I let my body dance intuitively at a concert in another province. I went to see a movie and gorged on my favourite soft pretzels. Because come on! They’re amazing!

It seems so simple, but if you actually look at your day to day life, how often can you really say you do this? Without feeling guilty? Without seeking approval? Without being embarrassed? Without planning out every detail?

It was during this little mini adventure that I knew I would be living my life differently from now on. I set the intention that, as best as I could, I was going to listen to my soul.

Expose your soul, feel it deeply. Let it guide you, let it explore! ❤️✌️

Accept Your Gut: The Difference Between Intuition, Ego, Logic 🤔🤷

Usually I’m really strong when it comes to break ups. Yes, I have a tendency of giving people too many chances, but I am no doormat ok? This particular relationship tho had me questioning everything when it ended. I could not for the life of me decipher between my intuition, my ego and my logical mind. What is the difference between them?

Something inside me longed to be chosen, to be loved. Something else knew the relationship was over, that I deserved better, that there was a higher calling at play. Another part of me knew I could never trust her again. Knew that if I took the steps of telling my parents and friends, giving my 60 days notice at the apartment, that I wouldn’t go back on it. Or maybe I would? What if this was just a hiccup and we were actually meant to be? Was it a sign that she called just as I was writing that I’m letting go? A sign that I’m not supposed to let go? Or that I should? Or was it a test – are you really letting go or not, lets see if you answer this phone call. And obviously I answered it.


So how do we know when it’s our Intuition?

Intuition is always serving your higher purpose. It is an inner knowing, a gut feeling that comes suddenly and without any emotion or reasoning attached. Its objective and part of your higher intelligence. Some people hear their intuition, some people feel it in their heart. Intuition is just one of the ways in which I will receive spiritual guidance. I interchange intuition with heart wisdom and I believe that my angels and spirit guides will relay messages in this way.

When I’m receiving these intuitive, spiritual messages they are always loving, kind and encouraging. They are also very calming, like the instant knowing that I had that everything would be okay, that this was all happening for a reason if I could just look at the bigger picture. I will also receive signs that are perhaps better viewed as tests, and they are only there to guide me to my higher purpose. When I receive those tests I know when my intuition is screaming – like with the phone calls – Don’t Answer It!! But my ego takes over and before I know it the green button is hit.

How do we know when its our Ego?

Ego plays on your fear and anxiety. Its driven by attachment and insecurities, and often tells you you aren’t good enough for something, or that you’re going to fail. Your ego used to be there to help you, protect you but we’ve built up so many impressions throughout our lives that the ego becomes muddled and starts to over-exert its power over us, often proving to be demeaning and downright rude. Ego is built up of different archetypes and will use all of them to deter you. The ego has seen every moment you entered your shadow side, it remembers that and tries to ensure you don’t go back there, however this often prevents you from even attempting to follow the lighter side because its so fearful that you might fail.

My ego fought hard against my intuition and my logical mind every step of the way. And at times I actually understood its foolishness. I truly believed that I would marry this person, so as much as my gut told me it was over, this fairytale lived on in my ego. It told me that I wasn’t going to find any one who loved me as much. It told me I couldn’t trust myself to make decisions like ending the relationship.

How do we know when it’s our Logical Mind?

A logical thought requires reasoning. The logical mind is objective and thinks critically about situations. It is not associated with feelings or any emotional pull. Logic helps you to draw a conclusion, find truth and make decisions by using evidence; examples, facts, and even assumptions. Logic is a left brain function, opposite to creativity, imagination, emotion and intuition.

My logical mind would have been telling me that when someone cheats on you twice, it’s highly likely they’ll do it again. It also told me to give 60 days notice knowing that I couldn’t afford rent on my own. It’s smart, but when there is no feelings or emotion involved it can be rather monotonous. Still, its important to notice the differences between logic, and ego and intuition. It is easy to mistake your logical mind for either of the latter.


Um yeah – so there’s a lot that goes on in this little head of mine. It’s not always pretty and I often feel like I’m being pulled in a million different directions all at once. This still happens, and I think it always will. But when I really want to know which way to go I sit for a moment (or however long it takes) in silence and I feel. What is my heart saying? What does my gut feel? What was my intuitive response? I dont always get a definitive answer, and when I do I dont always follow it. But it is getting a heck of a lot easier for me to notice when I’m pushing against the grain. And when I’m not.

When I feel myself aligning with the universe there is no need to look back and question things. This is when you know that it’s time to finally give yourself permission to rise. Time to thank your ego and logic for their contribution and push them aside in favour of your intuition, your heart centre. ❤✌

Are you an Empath? An Earth Angel? A Light Worker?

Who am I? What’s my purpose? The hardest questions that we’ve ever had to answer. Sometimes I think we only try to answer these questions when we are vibrating incredibly low (like after a break up, or major life trauma), which makes it even more difficult to address. Like Who TF am I? I have no idea! You tell me! And then the cycle starts of allowing other people to determine who we are.

It’s time for each of us to take that power back. We, and only we determine who we are, and what were supposed to do. Yes, like me, you may believe that parts of who you are were predetermined before you were born, but essentially you get to choose whether you engage with that aspect of Self.

I struggled with this at the beginning of this journey (and still do sometimes) because when you open yourself up spiritually there are SO many different gifts, titles, types that can guide you to your soul’s purpose on this earth.

Are you an Empath? a Yogi? A Goddess? A Hippie? An Earth Angel? A Light Worker? An Energy Healer? A Witch? A Teacher? A Spiritual Advisor? A Bohemian? A Guru? A Wanderer? A Psychic? An Intuitive Counsellor? A Clairvoyant? A Medium? A Wild Woman? A Shaman? A Medicine Man?

390446_441343869238289_749310991_n

In the last 6 months I have opened myself up to the possibility, and explored several of these concepts. I’ll keep it at 3 for now, as these 3 were the eye-opening names I needed to see. Keep in mind that this is a snippet of what I’ve come to learn about this incredibly vast world of purpose. So please comment below, add what you feel drawn to add, or correct me if Google wronged me.

Empath

I was already familiar with the idea of being an empath. A strong sense of empathy is required to work with vulnerable people (including social work – me), so I find that a lot of people in helping professions tend to land on the spectrum of highly sensitive people and empaths. An empath is someone who deeply feels the emotions and energies of other people around them. Empaths will absorb energy from people and environments, and can actually feel the pain other people are experiencing, or have experienced just from hearing their stories. This makes us extremely sensitive and usually quite adverse to being in huge crowds.

This is why the terms “self-care” and “boundaries” are used alllllll the time in social work. And why burnout, compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma are so prevalent. I believe that empaths can be incredible in helping professions (because they have an innate ability to connect with individuals) if they are aware of the impact energy has on them, and are able to set very strong boundaries and participate in heavy self-care rituals. Unfortunately, I was doing these things, but only to a certain extent and that ruined me (or so I thought).

At the time I came to realize that my burnout – my crash – was actually a spiritual calling, I began researching my soul’s purpose. Google was so helpful.

Initially I took a quiz in Emma Mildon’s book The Soul Seacher’s Handbook. I ended up being right on the line in between Earth Angel and Light Worker, both of which resonated nicely in my heart centre.

Earth Angel

Earth Angels are spiritual beings that are born to the earth, and called at a soul level to help humanity. They are “programmed” in a sense – to awaken to their true purpose through different life events. Earth Angels are not used to taking on physical form, as they have lived previously on the psychic and spirituals planes. They are here to help and to inspire others, and teach the message of light, love and peace. Earth Angels are on earth to help raise the vibration of the collective.

Light Worker

Light Workers are healers whose main purpose is to help others find their light. Light Workers hold space for others to be healed through the universal life force energy. They have often experienced their own crises in life and can acknowledge their shadow side. They have been “recharged” through a strong spiritual awakening. A Light Workers may also be called an Energy Healers or a Reiki Practitioners.


Sooo that’s where I started. Was I going around telling everyone that I’m an Earth Angel? Absolutely not. But I was inspired and I started exploring my intuition, my “abilities” if you will. I was reading about the spiritual realms and how I could connect with my true purpose. The answers that continued to be shown to me were to meditate daily, to use crystals regularly, to ask for guidance and to explore different divination tools (like pendulums or tarot cards). And to pray, or at least talk to my angels if “praying” doesn’t sit well with you – although if you are here reading about spirituality and universal energy, praying shouldn’t be what stands out as weird to you.

Every day I asked how I could serve for my higher purpose. How I could step in to my purpose and shine like I felt I needed to. I asked to be guided, shown, activated – whatever! I begged for this. And then I always said Thank you. Always.

I had some really intense spiritual moments when I begged like this. One time when I asked what my purpose was I heard “to teach”, and when I asked what I heard “about me”. Another time I pulled cards and out dropped “Workshops and Seminars” and “You are a Powerful Light Worker”. I cried… A lot. As I learn more about myself, I find my purpose shifts a little and as long as I keep going back to asking for that guidance and reassurance that I’m on the right path I am totally okay with that.

If I can offer any advice, even as a new journeyor, don’t get caught up in the labels. They were helpful to me at the beginning because it gave me direction, it helped me to understand that I wasn’t the only person going through this. Do your research, find people that inspire you but remember this is your journey. You can be/do whatever you need to. Whatever you feel drawn to. You may have gifts that have yet to be discovered. Let spirit show you where you need to be. Your potential is endless. ✌️💖

It’s “Just” Reiki 🙄🙌

Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy aka Reiki, is a healing technique that uses energy. I always felt attracted to Reiki but it just came off as a little “too quacky” for me. And that’s totally understandable considering I wasn’t open to the concept of “energy” until now. My ex was in to it tho so I bought two sessions (one for me, one for her) through Groupon. When things ended between us, naturally I wanted to go by myself just to prove I could. So I booked an appointment for the next day.

“It made me nervous being there – like I already felt a loss of control. I felt like there was a possibility that I was going to connect so deeply that I would either throw up or pass out. I wonder tho if that’s even possible – like of all the humans in the world, what makes me think that I would be that divinely connected that I might literally lift off the table or explode in to light. It’s just Reiki”.

– journal entry Jan 2018

Turns out “just” Reiki ended up actually doing a real number on me. I felt like I was floating for an hour, which for someone with serious control issues is terrifying. I was lightheaded and tingly the whole time. And I left there thinking I was never doing that again (HA! said the angels… yeah right).

The lady I went to see remained quiet throughout the session and shared her insights with me after. She said she saw a lot of red which she related to my root chakra and a feeling of insecurity. She also told me I was an empath (this was fairly obvious from the conversation we had prior to the session). And then she tried to sell me on Homeopathy. I’m not sure if it was her approach that threw me off, or just because I wasn’t in a great headspace but I never returned.

I ended up meeting a girl at a Mind Body Spirit store and started getting Reiki on a biweekly basis. She’s intuitive, and shares her insights throughout the session. I still get tingly and lightheaded but I’ve learned some grounding techniques to help with this. I walk away from each session feeling inspired, carefree and lighter.

Reiki really propelled my spiritual journey in to high gear. I ended up taking my First Degree and Second Degree Reiki courses and received the attunements from another practitioner at this store. So much for never wanting to do Reiki again.

There are so many benefits to receiving a session but I’ll just list some;

  1. Releases and clears blockages
  2. Cleanses body of toxins
  3. Balances chakras and energies
  4. Supports the body’s natural ability to heal
  5. Enhances intuition and spiritual awareness
  6. Promotes positive qualities of love, care, trust, compassion.

When the practitioner shares her insights with me it reaffirms that I’m on the right path. She delivers messages from my angels and offers some guidance around problems I’m experiencing. Some people may not appreciate conversation throughout the session, but for me I find this extremely beneficial to my spiritual growth.

As with other healing modalities, Reiki practitioners will have their own style, so just make sure you find someone that you can connect with. It tends to be a very vulnerable treatment. Some people laugh hysterically, others cry and it can also happen that nothing happens. And then in a few days you find yourself  balling your eyes out into a tub full of ice cream. It’s all about releasing those stuck emotions and there’s no right or wrong way about that.

Just remember there is more to Reiki than just going and laying on a table while someone barely touches you. It includes an active commitment from you in order for you to experience the full benefits. You need to make a conscious decision to improve yourself and your life. You need to be open and accepting of Reiki energy and all that it can offer. You need to be willing to let go of past impressions and excess baggage and allow your chakras to balance and negative energy to be cleared.

Maybe this all sounds a little daunting but if you are anywhere near the boat I was in while it was sinking you’re willing to try anything. Reiki is a great place to start ❤️✌️

Self ❤ Love: The Greatest🖕Middle Finger

When you cheated I was angry. I was hurt. I was heartbroken.

It’s incredible how one persons’ choice can turn your entire life upside down in one moment. In just one choice – one action – everything changes.

The initial reaction, the most comfortable reaction for our ego is anger. I was lied to, betrayed. I felt used. I was mad because I trusted them. I thought I knew them. I was even more mad at myself for letting someone get close enough to cause this pain, for giving them all of this power. I felt stupid and confused.

I questioned my value, and whether I was even worth being loved. I compared myself to her, to everyone. What had I done to make her look elsewhere? Where did I go wrong as a girlfriend? Why wasn’t I enough?

I was incredibly heartbroken, and lonely. With one choice, one action, I lost my best friend, the love of my life, my travel partner, my date, my rock. I was stripped, of everything, including the future I had expected.

I know deep down that this person wanted to love me. But I realized that they didn’t know how – they couldn’t. If they wanted to, they could have learned, changed, grew. But the universe knew that wasn’t meant to be. I realized they were never actually mine, and the fact that they couldn’t love me the way I expected them to was never in my control.

I could finally breathe.


I was grateful. I was hopeful.

And then, my mind silenced long enough to be grateful. I was grateful that this person chose me and loved me as deep as they could for almost five years. I was grateful that we had a lot of really awesome memories together. I was grateful that she introduced me to sober living. I was grateful that she encouraged and respected my spiritual growth. This was the most valuable gift anyone could have given me.

And I was grateful the relationship ended when it did, and the way it did.

I was hopeful because my eyes were open, and I had awakened. I was hopeful because this was the beginning of something beautiful and I could feel that. I felt it very strongly.


I was becoming…

On this day I knew I was moving in the direction of unapologetically loving myself. I took a big swig of that self love juice! I could take responsibility for my wrongs in the relationship, and I could be humble enough to recognize that it’s possible she stopped loving me without throwing a pity party or compromising my self worth.

I realized that sitting with all of these feelings is exactly what I needed to do. Allowing every feeling – even the desperately uncomfortable ones – to pass through my heart was crucial to my journey of self discovery, of soul searching and of self love. And it sucked. A LOT!

But….

Every day I get stronger.

My ex told me shortly after this that she felt like a pawn in my spiritual journey. That she felt like she was placed in my life to lead me somewhere, and then she was no longer necessary. And I believe there is truth to that. Relationships are in our lives for a reason, and when they have drawn their course they are removed. Trust the universe when a door closes, although it may hurt like nothing you’ve ever felt before, it may actually be the best thing that’s ever happened for you. ✌❤

Tarot Told Me To Leave My Partner

The first time I bought cards it was this Tarot Basics box. I was starting fresh – total newbie, purchasing a how-to book on top of that, as I didn’t know the box would come with a learning guide. I was a little messy at the time too ok? Don’t judge.

It had been about a month since I started a disability leave at work, and since my partner had cheated. She and I had just celebrated a rather awkward Christmas and New Years with our families and had decided on New Years day that it was best if she stayed with her parents for a day or two. My understanding was that she was going to figure out if she could actually commit to me. That’s how much I allowed other people to determine my path. She cheated, and I asked her to figure out if she could commit 🤔. We humans are a little loopy.

Anyways, she had been there two days so far and, it was a Wednesday (hump day – go figure – you’ll get the idea), I decided that I was going to treat myself to a new book and some sushi. I ended up in the New Age section at Chapters – all oogley eyed and inspired -and came across these Tarot cards. I figured it would be a fun way to entertain myself until my partner returned home (I told you I was messy). I also found Emma Mildon’s “The Soul Searchers Handbook”. It brought tears to my eyes! This was exactly the type of guide I was looking for.

Last night I did everything I was supposed to. I cleansed (or cleared) the cards, I consecrated them with my energy, I held them to my heart and bestowed blessings and intentions and I did a reading. I chose The Oracle Spread.

 

The Oracle Spread is 3 cards. The left card is the present problem, the middle card is the way out, and the third card (on the right obviously) is the future if you are prepared to follow that path. I asked a pretty basic question about what to do with my relationship and literally everything screamed RUN! 

 

  1. Present Problem: a farewell. Great danger of being sold short or cast as an extra. Current issue demands a lot of effort – putting down inner roots in order to scale greater heights in outward life.
  2. Way Out: end of a journey or eternal repetition or vicious cycle. Discover your personal values and what is truly essential for you.
  3. The Future: rebirth. Bury what is dead and be open to receive what is to come. Learn to forgive without forgetting. Draw the line.

-journal entry Jan 2018

I didn’t trust them, or maybe I did, and I just refused to follow through with the guidance. You see, at this point I knew deep down that my relationship was over. But I wasn’t quite ready to give up the fairy tale I had created in my mind. So much of reading cards is intuition. I knew what these cards were telling me right away and I chose to ignore them. I wasn’t quite ready to make such a big decision for myself. So I allowed my mind to race through all the possibilities of becoming a stronger couple, of being fought for and adored wholeheartedly. But it didn’t feel natural.

I woke up the next morning and cried. I cried for a sign – any sign – of what to do.  Not even five minutes later I found out that my partner had cheated again. While I was doing my card reading, she was “reading” someone else… if you know what I mean 😉 Now, this is not intended to make my ex out to be a terrible person – she isn’t. She was struggling just as I was. Though I don’t agree with the way in which things ended, I do believe they were meant to end between us. And maybe this was the only way my stubborn ass would let go of the fairy tale. I had fought against the universe for awhile. And I’ve heard it a few times that the universe will show you gentle sings, if you don’t listen they’ll give you a little nudge, or two, and if you still don’t listen you will get a good smack. I got smacked.

And back to the actual point… my first experience with Tarot was incredibly accurate, and that hasn’t changed since!! It continues to get stronger as I become familiar with the cards, and as I choose decks that I am drawn to. I have had some really cool experiences where I end up in a puddle of tears because I am so mesmerized. The cards never cease to bring me hope, validation and encouragement. Sometimes they knock me down a peg or two, but to me its like a best friend telling you the raw, hard truth, even though you don’t want to hear it. The divine messages that come through these cards are only meant to lead you to your highest good.

I really like keeping a diary of my readings because there are times I still rebel against them and choose not to listen. When I find myself wondering where things went wrong I can look back in my diary and see that it was me pushing against the grain again, and not following the guidance the universe provides. Essentially these readings allow my trust in the universe to grow, and my trust in my own intuition ❤️✌️

Free Spirit? or just “Too Weird”?

At what point did being different become a bad thing? 

At what point did we start to believe there was no magic in the world, that unicorns and mermaids don’t exist?

At what point did we start judging people for interests different than our own? Or worse yet, judging and persecuting ourselves for having interests beyond the norm…  Like crystals? Or dream catchers? Or even fortune tellers?

At what point did we start to believe witches were scary? And angels weren’t real?

At what point did “free spirit” turn in to “too weird”?

There is a point when all of this happens – when we are asked to stop being an intuitive, curious and carefree child and we start to turn away from our true selves. We start judging ourselves, and carry judgment for others.  Inevitably we push away so many things that we are designed to love – designed to bring us to our higher purpose.

But why? Why is being authentically ourselves so difficult to do once we hit a certain age? Fear.

I’ve noticed that the things that have stayed in my mind, the things I’ve pushed down so hard from a young age, are the things that I’m most reluctant to now, BUT they are also the things I am getting the most healing from. Like crystal shops, the new age section in the bookstore, Reiki…

I had been so drawn to these things from a very young age. I pushed them away because they were too “out there” for me. In the last few months its as if my body started screaming for them, and when I caved (and pushed aside any fears) I used these things to heal, and I continue to do so.

So think about it? What (where/who) is something you’ve been feeling pulled towards lately that you are reluctant to pursue? Is there any connection from your childhood? And why haven’t you just done it yet??

Follow what you are drawn to, despite judgment, despite fear. Maintain a curious, intuitive and carefree attitude. It could change your life ❤️✌️

How Do You Build A Sacred Space?

So most of us don’t have the means to travel to faraway lands, escape to beautiful temples, or renovate our entire home to find some peace. So then, how do we build a sacred space? Honestly, between everything that we do in a day, when do we ever take time to ourselves to sit and reflect, to refuel? If we do it’s in the car while we’re driving to our next appointment, or the coffee shop washroom, or once we get home and plop on the couch to watch Netflix. (Plop seems like the wrong choice of word after having talked about a washroom – but I don’t care, it made me laugh). But I’ve got a secret for you.. You are more than capable of creating a small space for yourself, and it will change your life!

“A Soul Searcher’s sanctuary is the key to their sanity in a world where sanity’s thin on the ground, so don’t underestimate the power of sorrounding yourself with happy chi”.

– Emma Mildon. “The Soul Searcher’s Handbook”, 2015

Having a sacred space (or some call it a “sanctuary”) has been a HUGE blessing throughout this journey. That’s one awesome thing that my ex ended up doing near the end of our relationship. Between the cheating, she actually found time to create a sacred space. She transformed our second bedroom in to this beautifully calm and relaxing room. I spent the entire month of December in this room, unless I was in therapy or getting a massage (how can anyone do self-care without massage?!). I did a lot of journalling, and I’m so relieved I did because it’s incredible to look back and see how things were changing inside me.

20171119_095218

This space is sacred because it allows you to connect so easily. It’s a self-care emporium and it’s full of magic. It feels safe, and inviting. You are surrounded by things that you love, and so your vibration is already elevated. In this space you have time, you are giving yourself permission to spend time on you, with you. I called on the angels, spirits, divine to join me in this room. My intuition was higher, I was ready to listen and I learned so much. It became a craving. I started watching a lot less TV, and spending time in any other room because I loved how I felt in this space.

It’s different now that I’ve returned to my parents (yeah… that happened), but I still have a space where I feel like I can escape (sort of). I have a comfy chair, blankets and pillows. My diffuser is out, and all my crystals. I have a bookshelf with my books and some pretty decorations I’ve found here and there; a dream catcher, a crystal lotus flower, a wooden OM. I also like to keep a picture of me as a child (I’m probably 3 or 4 years old) because I like to send my inner child love, and sometimes I’ll do Reiki on it. I bought a blue flower that hangs on the doorknob so people know when I’m enjoying my serenity, but sometimes this doesn’t stop them from knocking 🤦

If you are just starting a Spiritual Journey, or you started a long time ago and haven’t created space for yourself, OR if you are just in need of some self-care time – CREATE IT!

Here are some suggestions for your Sacred Space:

  • Colours that make you smile – paint your walls or buy a nice piece of fabric to hang
  • Candles
  • Pictures of people you love – including yourself!!
  • Relaxing music (I like soft guitar, Reiki or spa music from YouTube – some of the playlists last 8 hours!)
  • Motivational and Inspiring Quotes/Pictures
  • Comfy blankets and pillows
  • Crystals (YESSSS)
  • Essential oils or Incense
  • Journal and pens
  • Mood lighting (highly recommend purchasing a salt lamp)
  • Plants or flowers
  • Yoga mat, or meditation pillows
  • Spiritual literature
  • Statues (like a Buddha… or whatever floats your boat)
  • Dream Catcher
  • Oracle Cards (or any other kind of divination tool you might be in to… or not, whatever)
  • Something to cleanse the space (I use palo santo)

Just remember to keep it simple, and use your intuition to feel what to put in there, and where. Your soul knows what will soothe it, just trust it ❤✌

Closer to Home; Accepting a Spiritual Calling

The instant I acknowledged my belief in Spirituality things started to change for me. That’s literally all it took, and I was seeing the world differently, I was feeling more at home in my own body, and in the life I had lived for 30 years. I could feel the presence of something heavier in the air – not in a bad way, in a beautiful way. In a way that told me that there was more to this world that what my baby blues could see. I was being drawn to so many things; a metaphysical store I have seen a million times and never gone in to, crystals, Reiki, meditations on YouTube. Social Media was swimming with quotes and links to events and blogs. People I spoke to (which weren’t very many, remember burnout…) were talking about Buddha and Twin Flames – WTF?!

Path of Life Sculpture Garden

I started reading about Spirituality – figured a blog was a good place to start, because my heart (my intuition, my inner knowing if you will) was there, but I’m a Gemini, and if my intellectual side isn’t satisfied, girl (or boy) you know I’m not going anywhere. The first site that was plastered across my computer screen was called “Loner Wolf”. I certainly didn’t google that myself. But if you haven’t checked them out, do it! https://lonerwolf.com/ It’s a site created by a set of Twin Flames (go figure), Mateo Sol and Aletheia Luna (biographies below). They have hundreds of blog posts, and I found the two that I was craving, rather they found me. “30 Signs You’re Born to be a Spiritual Healer” by Aletheia Luna, and “Is your Life Crisis Really a Spiritual Calling in Disguise” by Mateo Sol – both links here;

As I read these articles, I started to feel like I fit, like actually FIT, for the first time ever. I know you probably don’t know me. But if you did, you would likely think that’s a ridiculous statement. I don’t come off as an introvert, or someone who has a hard time making friends, or “fitting in”. I get along with everyone because that’s what happens when you live to impress other people. As you read in my previous post, I put your feelings about me above my feelings about myself, so I morphed into whatever I thought you needed me to be. If you had asked me who I was, I would never have been able to answer that. It actually makes me cry thinking about that, but it’s so very true. Even if I was in the middle of the room, cracking jokes and being a social butterfly, I felt like I was different from you all, I felt like an outcast that could never find their place. Inside I was screaming for people to love me, because I couldn’t figure out how to love myself. But even I didn’t know that, I was certainly learning  it though. And reading these articles was my next step in that journey.

“30 Signs You’re Born to be a Spiritual Healer” by Aletheia Luna hits the nail on the head. It talks about Spirituality going against the grain of what we’re taught in the Western world. I’ve always had this sense of being the “black sheep”. I’ve always been attracted to energies and extremely sensitive to physical and emotional environments. I can sense energy and become drained when anothers’ energy is negative. Meditation and Mindfulness are things I actually feel so passionate about, despite others’ views.     – journal entry Dec 2017

The items listed on this page spoke so clearly to me. They allowed me to feel that I was on the right path, and that there was this community of people out there who understood me. Who could verbalize the things I’ve been wanting to say for so many years, and didn’t have the wherewithal, or courage to speak.

  1. You are highly sensitive to energy.
  2. You feel other people’s emotions and physical ailments as your own (empath).
  3. You are intuitive and can read others very easily.
  4. You are a “big picture” thinker (and don’t concern yourself too much with the details).
  5. You have gone through bouts of existential depression.
  6. You have felt like an outcast for most of your life.
  7. You think differently from others.
  8. You get overwhelmed in public easily.
  9. You have struggled with anxiety or panic before.
  10. You are the natural peacemaker between people.
  11. You are the confidant that people turn to in times of need.
  12. You experience digestive issues, lower back pain or gain weight around the stomach (solar plexus chakra disorders).
  13. You feel drained after spending too much time around people
  14. Sensitive beings like animals and children gravitate towards you.
  15. Other people tend to “dump” their emotional baggage onto you to deal with.
  16. You think in shades of grey rather than in black and white.
  17. You are very aware of the interconnectedness of life and deeply respect it.
  18. You believe in synchronicity more than coincidences.
  19. You have a history of healers in the family, e.g. nurses, psychologists, massage therapists
  20. You’ve experienced a major trauma in your life, e.g. loss of your family, life-threatening illness, near death experience, physical/sexual/emotional abuse, war, mental illness.
  21. You’ve gone through a spiritual awakening.
  22. You’ve experienced the dark night of the soul.
  23. You tend to use the right side thinker more than a left side thinker.
  24. You experience chronic pain in your body or an autoimmune disease (energetic blockages).
  25. You are EMF sensitive (electromagnetic hypersensitivity).
  26. You tend to attract people who need “fixing” but often get trapped in self-sacrificing roles.
  27. You’re an excellent and compassionate listener.
  28. You are naturally drawn towards healing professions that help others experience balance and wholeness.
  29. You can feel, distinguish between and alter the energy within and without yourself.
  30. You have had numerous mystical experiences.

List from “30 Signs You’re Born to be a Spiritual Healer”

by Aletheia Luna (link above).

The only downfall to reading this post was that immediately when I finished I started obsessing about getting back to work right away. I googled roles or careers in which “Spiritual Healers” would be employed. I racked by brain thinking about how I could make this happen right away. I caught myself trying to find value in external sources – again. I realized my ego was trying to avoid the actual work that was necessary, the real work, the soul work.

Then I found the other post, “Is your Life Crisis Really a Spiritual Calling in Disguise” by Mateo Sol. And I realized that this is where I need to be. It was here that I needed to sit with myself, because I knew that if I could truly see my entire breakdown, not as a personal attack from God, but as a Spiritual Calling, then I would have no question that I am valued and loved, that I’m part of a collective, that I have a divine purpose. I could actually choose who I want to be, and I could delve deep into the layers, walls and impressions that I’ve created in myself so far. I could do the really dirty work, and still feel like I was going to be okay, or perhaps even better than okay!

“There comes a moment in our lives where we grow out of the collective values and ways of living common to our societies. At a certain point in our lives, we realize that the values, attitudes, relationships and beliefs we’ve held no longer contribute to the development of who we truly are: our authentic selves.

This life crisis, although painful, provides a vital opportunity for us to begin our spiritual journeys towards wholeness”.

Quote from “Is your Life Crisis Really a Spiritual Calling in Disguise”

by Mateo Sol (link above).

The most important thing that I took away from Mateo’s article was that this crisis is just the beginning. When you’ve experienced a “calling” it’s like you know that it’s not going to be easy, but you just can’t not do it. It feels like you have no other choice, like the Universe sets everything up perfectly so that you know this is what needs to be done. I knew that I was at a place in my life that required commitment to my Spiritual practice. Essentially, it required a commitment to myself. And so I committed, and yes it was shaky, under torrential downpour at times, but I am still here – committing. And whether or not other people understand this, is completely out of my control. I get that now, and I don’t let it have any impact on me. Hmmm maybe that’s not entirely true. There are VERY few people in my life that I’m still effected by, but it does happen and it’s really not easy feeling like I’m disappointing them, or embarrassing them, but that’s all part of the journey I think. Not everyone is going to understand you, even if that hurts your heart. It does not mean they don’t love you.

If you feel like you are being called for a Spiritual Journey, get on the bus and go with the flow! Sure, buses are super uncomfortable – there’s a lot of people you don’t know, and only one washroom (if any, eek) – but so is embarking on a journey of self-discovery. In my humble opinion, being uncomfortable is much easier than being lost. Being uncomfortable means that there will be growth. And growth means that you are getting closer and closer to finding out who you truly are, and that you are capable of anything! We are called to realize this, and to become a force of good in this world. Each of us has a purpose, and each of us will be called to it.

Will you listen? Will you embark on the journey?

I hope you will ❤✌
