Five Keys to Empowering Yourself with Love

I have been contemplating this idea of self-love more. It’s so simple, and yet so hard to attain. Really being able to look yourself in the eye, and say… I love you. I love you, your flaws, your perfections, your failures, and your victories. It can be so difficult to really see yourself in all those phases, and still really appreciate who, and what you are.

I know I struggle with this. I know you struggle with it. We all do. It’s something that we feel at one time or another. Some of us daily. Some of us feel the struggle of self-love in waves. There are things that help make self-love easier, and other things will spiral it out of control and turn all our pain into very real monsters.

Here are 5 keys to help you on your journey to connecting and honoring yourself more!

Key Number One: Stay Committed to Yourself.

Regardless of how low you feel, or how lost you may seem; your commitment to yourself will be the lantern in the darkness. The simple willingness to uphold yourself, to listen to yourself, to do what is best for yourself… will put you in the right situations!

It isn’t always easy to stay committed to yourself. Sometimes you will let down your guard, casting yourself into something that you know wont make you feel better. But you have to try don’t you? Because you are brave and strong… and that’s how you learn!

Just stay strong! Hang on with all your might.

Key Number Two: Allow Yourself to Be Dark

The darkness is part of you. Don’t hide from your shadow, don’t run from it, and don’t be afraid of it. It isn’t your enemy. It is your friend. Your shadow allows you to learn so much about who you are, what you’re made of and how much you can, and will take!

Whenever you feel dark, just dance! Dance to whatever rhythm you feel. Whatever song you hear playing. Just close your eyes and let go to the beat of it all!

That is one of the best ways to learn to love yourself. If you trust yourself to dance you will feel sexier, stronger, more vibrant. You will seduce the dark! 

Key Number Three: Learn to Say No

If you don’t like it… don’t do it! Do not feel responsible for anyone else if it isn’t for your best wellbeing. We spend so much time saying yes to things that we don’t really want to do. We feel guilted into living life a certain way.

I always ask myself: does this feed my spirit, or does it defeat my spirit?

If it doesn’t feed your spirit then you should just move on to the next thing! Don’t get stuck in the mindset that if you say no, you will miss out on something. You don’t miss out on opportunities that are good for you, by saying no to things that feel wrong.

In this big, beautiful Universe… all you have to do to get what you want and need is be you, love you, and smile!

Key Number Four: Daily Life Can Be Exciting

Every single day can be awesome. It can be filled with great things. Don’t wait your whole life for the right person, the right place, the right time… do it now. Live it now. Don’t only do what you love when everything else is “taken care of”. Don’t live your life for vacation, retirement, or the weekends.

This moment right now is perfect! You are beautiful enough to shine right now. So go out there and say what you need to say. Start planting the seeds of your dreams. And water them with lots of love. Because the truth is… you have time to love yourself!

Each moment you spend on anything… you should first take a second to love yourself. It’s easy to forget. But it’s a powerful affirmation, and catalyst of change.

Key Number Five: Self-Love is Self-Healing

You may not always feel strong. You may feel like you are losing a battle with something… it creeps into us now and again! You may not have the energy to do what you want, or what you need. But find just a little, tiny space to be good to yourself.

Because when you are good to yourself… you will also begin to heal yourself. You will heal yourself of all the pain, the upset, the damage, the loss… all the things that make you feel fragmented will begin to heal.

Some things will take longer than others. But it is all rooted in your belief. And your commitment to yourself… remember that!

It’s February… Love is in the Air!

Love is something that comes up so often in my sessions, and even in my personal life with friends and family. There is this constant conversation happening among people about how to love, when to love, where to find love, how to keep love, and on and on it goes. It’s all pretty power, pretty beautiful, and some times heavy!

Something that is usually left out of the conversation is self-love. I know… crazy right! We want love from other people, we want to give love to other people… but we struggle to love ourselves. But when you begin to look at self-love, you will find a pivotal point of power. 

What does that mean?

Well, when you want something in your life (like love, acceptance and romance) you have to also practice those things. And the best way to do that is to cultivate a space in your own life for you to give to yourself.

You see, self-love is not selfish it is actually the opposite. When you practice self-love you are filling yourself up with vibrant, beautiful energy, and you are planting a seed of intention, to not only give love, but to receive love, to feel love, and to live in love. That seed of intention will take root, sprout and blossom into the world, creating a powerful space for you to share the sweet nectar of love with others.

Isn’t it amazing how simple that is? By loving yourself, you begin to thrive… growing into an empowered person. Growing into an authentic person. And by simply being you, in a state of love (our natural state), you can give unconditional love to everyone else.

Because without self-love you have no acceptance, and without acceptance of yourself you begin to have limits, and with limits comes your personal edge… and that edge will be tested so many times by people and situations in your life. If you make self-love one of your truths, then nothing can shake you when your edge creeps up to challenge you!

Here are a few affirmative questions to ask yourself throughout the month!

It would be powerful to journal with these questions, or create affirmations from them.

  1. What self-loving act do you do every day?
  2. Stand in front of the mirror. What do you love most about your face? Name as many as you wish.
  3. What food when you eat it feels like an act of self-love?

Join in the Self-Love Fest of February!

We would love to hear your thoughts, comments and answers!!

How to Spiritually Cleanse Another Person

I want to talk about psychic and spiritual cleansing for another individual. This is a subject that has come up a lot in recent emails, and comments so I think it is important to address it here.

When working for other people in a psychic/spiritual sense there are many layers to the process because you are working with energy, more specifically, the energy surrounding the individual. In order to have a truly solid working the person should be open, and receptive to the cleansing process. If they aren’t open to the process, then they most likely aren’t ready to release whatever is around them.

This does not mean that a cleansing can’t be performed. On some level their higher self may be receptive to this wave of good energy, and willing to let it in. But when people are in psychic trauma they usually oppose whatever has their best interest in mind. So if you are performing a cleansing on someone who isn’t aware of this, you must send it out with the intention that they will receive the good energy if they would like!

With all rituals you are trying to create an energetic and conscious shift through the use of symbolic language and concentrated energy… this can be done in many ways, some simple, and some elaborate. But the process of spiritually cleansing another person can be very simple. All you will need are a few tools of intention.

To begin we will work with a few candles, as they are powerful forms of concentrated and focused energy used by many religions and paths throughout history, and the world! Read more about candle’s here!

You will choose a candle that represents the person being cleansed. This candle is often called an, Astral candle, it represent the person on an energetic level. Often times this candle will be in the color associated to their astrological sign. You can find this information below.

You will need a black, or white candle. This candle will be the magnet that attracts and holds whatever negative energy and attachments are connected to the person being cleansed. This is essential a psychic vacuum, much like an egg is used in spiritual cleansing. Read about Limpia with an Egg here.

You will also need a blue, or pink candle. This candle will be filled with an intention of love, positive energy, health and Universal blessing. Whenever you are performing a spiritual cleansing you want to fill the spaces that are cleared away with good energy! Move something in time and space, and something else must take its place. 

Gather together your 3 candles, along with sea salt, spring water, sweetly scented incense, and a lighter. You can also have a piece of paper with the persons name written on it, or a photograph of them. This is an energetic connection to them to help focus your intention.

Find a space where you will not be disturbed. Place all of your tools of intention on a table, tray or in one area of the ground. Make sure you have proper candleholders, a pitcher of water nearby for accidents, and that nothing will be in the way of the candles as they burn. You may want to place them on a plate so you can easily move them to burn after the cleansing.

When you are ready to begin find a seated position on the floor. Close your eyes and begin to breathe deeply. Let your breath become rhythmic… in and out. Feeling your belly expand, rise, and then fall. Lulling you deeper into a meditative state.

Allow your mind to unwind. Your thoughts to disentangle. Relax your feet, your legs, your hips, and your core. Relax your chest, your shoulders, neck and arms. Let your head fall down between your shoulder blades. Let it hang for a few moments just feeling a good stretch. Keep breathing. Keeping your rhythm.

Now begin to visualize yourself being surrounded by a beautiful bubble of white light. See it glow brightly, growing around you and forming a beautiful protective barrier. This is the white light of the Universe surrounding you in protection.

Around this white light visualize a beautiful blue light. This blue light glows brightly with a gentle hue that evokes a feeling of love, and healing. This is the healing light of the Universe adding to your intention.

Now you can begin your intention for cleansing.

Mix the sea salt, and spring water together. This is a powerful cleansing agent. Sprinkle the salt water around yourself, and around the space. Sprinkle it over the candles, and the other tools you have gathered.

Now light the incense. Let the smoke waft around the space, and around your body. Let it lift the energy in the air, and create an atmosphere of power, and sacred healing. Take your 3 candles and waft them through the smoke of the incense to release any stray energy held within.

Hold in your hands the first candle, the astral candle. Wash it gently with salt water, allowing it to cleanse and bless the candle. Now with the candle held in your palms begin to concentrate and visualize the person begin cleansed. Think of them as they are now. Their personality, their physical characteristics, their voice, their movement. Their mental and emotional state. Intend that this candle represent whomever you are cleansing.

Place the candleholder overtop of the photo/paper with their name on it. Now light the candle in the holder and say:

I affirm that this light is (name the person).

Now hold in your hands the second candle, either black or white. Wash it with salt water. With the candle in your palms begin to focus on the person being cleansed. Focus on their condition. See all the pain, the struggle, the sorrow, the attachments and limiting energies going into the candle. Intend that the candle is a magnet that attracts and absorbs the heavy energy surrounding whomever you are cleansing.

Light this candle from the astral candle. As the flame of the astral candle lights the flame of the banishing candle, see it as transference of negative energy. From the person you are cleansing, to the candle! Now place it in the holder and say:

As this candle burns down, so does the negative energy surrounding (name the person).

Take the last candle in your hand, blue or pink. Wash it with salt water. Hold it in your palms and visualize it glowing with a beautiful light filled with love, blessing, and healing and positive energy. See this candle as a beacon of blessing, shinning into the life of the person being cleansed. 

Light this candle in the flame of the astral candle. See this as a new life for the person. As the flame burns brightly, say:

I intend that as this flame burns bright it fills the life of (name the person) with love, happiness, healing, positive energy and blessing. This is the light of the Universe smiling upon him or her.

Take some time to allow the candles to burn, and just breathe into your intention. Continue to visualize the power behind the candles. See the person being released of all negative energy, and being blessed. Visualize them being surrounded by the white light of protection, and the blue light of healing.

Now say a prayer, silently or out loud:

This cleansing session is for the highest good of (name the person). This intention is his or hers to freely accept.

Allow the candles to completely burn down. If, for some reason, you have to extinguish them before they can burn down, do it with a snuffer! Place the remaining stubs in a paper bag, sprinkle sea salt over it, and dispose of them in the trash.

This spiritual and psychic cleansing ceremony can be used for another person, or you can use it for yourself. The choice is yours. Just change the wording accordingly. Make sure you feel confident about performing a cleansing like this. Listen to your intuition, and evaluate your own energy levels!

List of Astral Candle Colors:

This is a general source of colors. Trust your intuition with this as well. If the person has a favorite color, use that. If you don’t know their zodiac sign, or you cannot obtain that color candle use white.

Gemini: Light Blue

Egg Cleansing for the Home

Spiritual cleansing, or “Limpia” with an egg is an old, and powerful form of spiritual cleansing. It is very popular in Latin folk-magic, but has its roots in many cultures. You can read more about self-cleansing with an egg, here!

Lets take this wonderful technique a step further and spiritually cleanse the home. Spiritually cleansing of the home is very important because your home is a reflection of your inner world, and as it becomes tainted by negative and lower level vibrations you become heavier and more lost in the fog. Take ownership of your space and make it sacred, as it should be!

To begin gather one large fresh egg. This egg should be free-range, and organic. It should be room temperature before you begin. Also gather a glass of fresh spring water, a sage smudge or sweet incense, and a white or pink candle.

Wash the egg in a mixture of salt water, and lemon juice. This ensures that the egg is not holding onto stray energies before the session.

Put yourself in a relaxed state. Make sure no one is in the home that will disturb you.

Hold the egg in your hand. Saying a prayer or affirmation of cleansing and peace. Begin at the entrance of the home, and waft the egg around each corner of the room, around the entrances, doorways and windows. Around any clutter, heavy furniture, and places that feel stagnant.

Move through the entire house, one room to the next. Continue to focus on your intention of cleansing the home. Ask for blessing and guidance from the Universe. And trust your intuition about where to go.

Make sure to focus on openings of any kind. Places that is cluttered, stagnant or dark, such as closets or cabinets. And any rooms that have a particularly heavy feeling, or some kind of history that you want to work through.

The egg is essentially a psychic vacuum that is picking up, and holding any unwanted energy present in the space.

When you are finished you can break the egg into the cup of water. Allowing the contents of the egg to settle. At this time it is good to go through each room with the sage smudge, or incense stick. Letting it waft into all the same places as the egg.

This will add an extra layer of cleansing. And will ensure the space is blessed with positive vibration.

Once I have done this I like to light a white or pink candle in the hearth, or center of the home, or in each room. This candle represents the light of the Universe, and blessings of love filling the space of the negativity that has been released. Allow the candle to safely burn down.

Another element I like to add to the process is placing a bouquet of fresh white flowers in each room.

Once the cleansing session is finished you can observer the yoke of the egg for signs of the energy that was removed from the space. Think of this like looking at clouds in the sky. What shapes have formed? How do they make you feel? What do they seem to represent.

To dispose of the egg after interpreting the yoke, dumb the contents into the toilet and flush. Or place into a running stream off of your property. If you haven’t broken the egg place in a paper bag in the trash off of your property.

Visit this article for more information about interpreting the yoke. 

Do this process as often as you like. I suggest doing a home cleansing at least once a month, or ideally once a week. And whenever there is any kind of altercation, misfortune, or illness in the space.

Please, let me know if you have any other questions.

If you would like me to interpret the patterns formed by your egg. Please follow the steps, break the yoke into a cup of water and take several pictures. Make sure to photograph the results in good light, from a few different angles. You can email me the photos. Purchase your egg interpretation here.

Exploring the Aura

Originally Appeared in Soul Path Magazine August 2014

There is something so exciting and beautiful about seeing someone’s aura blooming, growing and pulsating in front of you. It’s a lightshow of rainbow colors that reflect the person’s inner world, their mood, emotions, and the things they are pulling and pushing in and out of their lives.

The aura is the unique energetic story each and every person is telling.

The aura is composed of many layers of energy, constantly moving and cycling, much like a wheel. Some energies cycle out quickly, and others linger for an extended amount of time. When energy starts to take on a cyclical pattern then it represents something that is being held onto, a lesson to be learned, or a particular energy that you are in need of.

The aura reflects our every thought, feeling, and experience. It will change accordingly. The most telling thing about the aura is the texture and color that are emanating from it. When you are aware of this you can learn a lot about a person, or situation.

Often times the aura knows the truth about a person or situation before you consciously do.

The chakra system (the 7 main energy centers of the body) is made up of the seven colors of the rainbow. Each chakra dictates a different experience, and the energy of that chakra loops together and creates the aura. If you are experiencing a block in a specific chakra, that will appear in the aura.

Not only does the aura reflect the chakras system, it also reflects all the things you encounter throughout your day, and your life as a whole. The aura is your energetic story, and with that story is your energetic history.

You may find yourself naturally experiencing other people’s auras. It can be very subtle such as a tingly feeling when you are very close to a person, or maybe you’ve experienced the sudden sensation of coming up against a wall when interacting with a person… this is their aura shielding you out.

It’s also very common to see a person’s aura when they are speaking in front of you, especially if there is a dark background behind them, or something neutral. When people are excited their aura will spike and shoot off energy much like fireworks. If someone is telling you a lie their aura will shrink, and become somewhat jagged.

Learning to Work With the Aura

You can work with the colors of your aura, and the chakras to create change in your life. Each color has a unique energetic vibration, and that vibration is the makeup of your aura. If you can perceive the color, you can decode the energy at work and begin to use it for your highest good.

I suggest spending a few minutes throughout the day checking in with your energy field. When you wake up in the morning close your eyes, take a few deep breathes, and let a color fill your mind. You may ask yourself, “What color am I right now?” The answer will reveal the energetic state you are in.

This is beneficial for you because it allows you to align with the Universe and with your intention. You may find that your aura is muddy colored, dull and a little gray. Which would indicate that you are feeling off, closed down, and withdrawn. This wouldn’t be an ideal energy if you were about to give a major presentation for your company.

Do this throughout the day!

Another technique is to notice what colors are jumping out at you throughout the day, or over a week. Is there a particular color you are drawn to? Or that you keep noticing at random? This is your higher self trying to get your attention, and integrate that energy into your life.

This is very noticeable in a person’s wardrobe. Everyone has their color that they look great in, but we all go through phases where we are drawn to a certain color of clothing. This is your energy field trying to regulate itself. You may look horrible in purple, or typically you avoid it in your wardrobe, but lately you’ve been buying purple clothing!

Why? Because you need a boost in your spiritual vibration, you need to tap into your intuitive self, and trust in your inner wisdom.

An Exercise to Actively Work with Aura Colors

Go to a hardware store, or a paint store and find the section of paint swatches. This is the Wonderland of colors!

Give yourself about 20 minutes and begin to brows the colors. Don’t force anything. Just look. Notice what you notice. See what colors jump out. You may find that you start with your favorite colors, but don’t get stuck there! Acknowledge all the colors.

As you go through this exercise, begin pulling out chips that speak to you. Don’t look at their names, or really investigate them closely just yet. Just let your impulse and intuition guide you.

When you have between 5-10 chips you are ready to go!

Take them home. Lay them out on a big table, or on the floor and begin grouping them. You may find that you have two main colors, or maybe you have one big group of colors.

Can you divide them into shades? Lights and darks? Different saturations?

Now being to look at the names. Are there any name themes? Do you see any dots connecting? What is the overall feeling? What word would you use to describe the collage of colors?

This is a reflection of where you are energetically, or what energy you need to pull into your life.

You can do this process as often as you like. It’s a fun way to connect with colors. It can be used for divination, much the same way you would use a deck of cards.

You can take the experience a step further by keeping the collage of colors somewhere you can look at them. You may stick them to a poster board or a corkboard. You may even decide that one color is so necessary that you want to paint a wall, or room that color!

As you follow this process you will become more sensitive to the energies around you.

Play with it and have fun!

Here is a list of color meanings that I have created. This is not a complete list. Feel free to add or take away as you see appropriate!

 

White: Purity, divinity, light, peace, healing, spirit guides and the 7th (crown) chakra.

Black: Mystery, the universe, protection, wisdom, the feminine aspects of the divine, change, winter and spirit communication.

Red: passion, romance, sexuality, power, summer, anger, lust, creativity and the 1st (root) chakra.

Blue: Communication, healing, animals, clarity, the angels, harmony/serenity, and the 5th (throat) chakra.

Green: Nature, spring, prosperity, fairies, healing, Mother Earth/goddess, and the 4th (heart) chakra.

Yellow: Confusion, empathy and telepathy, earth spirits/energy, the sun, awakening, renewal, power and the 3rd (solar plexus) chakra.

Purple: psychic abilities, awareness, magic, higher power, the celestial bodies, sensitivity, understanding, higher education, and the 6th (third eye) chakra.

Orange: Work, career, health, nutrition, abundance, and the 2nd (sacral) chakra.

Pink: love, friendship, healing, understanding, forgiveness, matters of the heart and the 4th (heart) chakra.

Brown: Stability, hearth and home, finances, work problems, grounding and letting go.

Gray: protection, invisibility, fear, compromise and neutralizing.

What is Reiki?

Have you ever heard of Reiki? Or energetic healing? This is a powerful form of shifting and moving negative, limiting and stagnant energies around you to create change. This is one of the best tools in a light-workers tool kit.

What is Reiki

The word Reiki is derived from two Japanese ideograms. It can be broken down into two words the first being rei, which means the higher intelligence of the universe, or the spiritual source. This is the divine will of the universe or as some might say, the universal mind. This could be equated with God, or any other governing power. Ki, is the second portion of the word and it means primal and can be understood as primal healing energy. So connecting the two words together is primal healing energy directed spiritually, or as many like to say Reiki is universal light energy.

Reiki is a Japanese form of healing and relaxation therapy. It promotes stress reduction, healing and relaxation on many levels and to varying degrees. The general purpose of Reiki is to promote and create wellbeing in people. At the core of Reiki is a method of energy work that can help to release a person from negative bonds and lead them to a path of least resistance and miraculous opportunities.

Reiki healing is a form of energy work which is channeled through a practitioner and to the receiver who is in need of healing. In the simplest terms Reiki is pure energy. We are also pure energy. Our entire being is a composed of different energies working and reacting with each other… our bodies are the denest part of our being which is why energetic imbalances manifest as illness. Reiki works to restore our energy to its highest form of good.

To understand the concepts of energy direct your focus to a natural phenomenon like the Sun. Even tough we cannot see the energy from the sun we can feel it as heat. The same is true when receiving Reiki, you will usually feel the energy working on your body as a tingling or heat, which will emanate from the palms of the healer. The heat from the sun much like Reiki creates a phenomenon called photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is a process by which plants and organisms transform light energy into carbohydrates and oxygen. This concept parallels to the process of Reiki in a similar way.

How Reiki Works

In a healing session the body is sent Reiki energy and that energy is taken in by the body and sent throughout to various organs, cells and tissues and even portions of your aura that are in need of healing. The negative energy or dis-ease undergoes a transformation which is activated by the Reiki energy and that transformation works to reverse all ill effects. There is a basic nature of Reiki, it works to heal and it cannot do harm to the receiver.

As I mentioned before we are all composed of many different levels of energy, that are interacting with each other and with the environment in which we are in. This energy that surrounds our densest layer ( our body) is called the aura. The chakras also exist in this place as well. We accumulate different and conflicting energies in our bodies which become the seeds to our illnesses and dis-ease.The energy that creates the composition of our aura is affected by our thoughts, actions and words. There are other factors that play into that health of the bodies such as the people we surround ourselves with, the things we eat, the amount of sleep we get and even the clothing that we wear.

Reiki works to reverse, neutralize and transform ill effects which have worked their way into our beings. Whether we are experiencing disharmony in our body, mind or spirit, the Reiki will know where to go… you don’t even have to be conscious of it for it to work. Reiki has an intelligence of its own. The great thing about Reiki is that it is attracted to the places that is in need  of healing and works accordingly.

“A healer provides you the space and opportunity to heal yourself. You alone make the choice to allow healing to take place.” -Shaheen

How to Manifest the Life You Want

Lately I have taken the time to focus on what I’m putting energy into, what I’m intending into my reality. I’ve made a conscious effort to align myself with spirit daily. The more connected I begin to feel the more spiritually cleansed and empowered I am. The expression, “Prayer is the act of asking spirit and meditation is the act of listening” has really held true for me.

I have always known that our thoughts and beliefs shape our reality. Not only do they shape the experiences we have in our daily lives, but also they shape our health. Each issue that we have in our body is a reflection of the things that we are holding in our spirit as the truth.

It all begins with energy; the energy of your words, your actions, you feelings, beliefs and fears. Whatever you allow to enter into your awareness on a daily bases becomes the commands that our psyche follows and whatever the psyche internalizes becomes the fabric of our reality. Whatever you energetically hold as the truth intricately weaves into existence the life that you now know.

This process begins in the mind and the emotions. We start to develop psychological patterns, many of which begin at a very young age (from the time you are born until you are around 5 is the key time of internalizing patterns). It is these psychological patterns that begin to weave into our energy field.

If you hold limiting and negative psychological patterns as your truth, then your health is sure to suffer. I know that I have had many experiences where this has held true. From a small cold, to losing your voice, to larger health concerns!

I’ve had a few “twilight” periods where I had to, not only focus on my emotional health, but physically my body needed to heal and regain its strength. I worked hard to cycle out emotional debris of pain, hurt and fear. At one point I found myself covered in large inflamed bumps that ran from my spine around my side. They were extremely painful and appeared over night. I saw a doctor and discovered that I had shingles. I instantly knew that this was a physical response from my psyche trying to ride itself of toxins. The negative energy that had built within me literally bubbled to the surface.

Whenever you develop an illness, disease or any sort of physical trauma you need to instantly ask yourself, “What have I allowed into my mind and spirit?” It is when we internalize a mental/emotional pattern that it becomes part of our psyche/spirit and starts to affect the body and on a larger scale.

Your life and health is the manifestation of all the things that you hold as your personal truths. This means that you are the one in control, even if you may not feel that way. You have to realize how much power you have and work to undo what can be a lifetime of negative manifestation.

  • Recognize what energetic cords your have created. Energetic cords are the things that we energetically attach ourselves to. They are the results of psychological patterns. For example: If you tend to have negative relationships, a cord has developed between you and your dysfunctional partner; which has allowed them to take your energy and in some cases you to take theirs.

This could be an underlying pattern of feeling unloved, for example. Maybe you have accepted into your psyche the “truth” that you will never find someone who accepts you. In turn you may have recently developed a heart issue.So in order to clear your life of negative lovers and your body of a broken heart, you must change the belief that you have internalized.

  • There is an esoteric law that says, “When one thing is moved in time and space, another thing must fill its place.” So if you are to dissolve the belief that you are “unlovable”, you must then adopt a new truth.

Once you have worked with yourself, very patiently, you can rearrange your beliefs and recreate your life. This process of healing starts with a few things.

The two most important that I have found are forgiveness and gratitude.

  • Forgiveness allows you to cut the energetic cords that may exist between you and the limiting beliefs that have over taken your life so that you can regain your power and consciously manifest. I worked extensively on forgiveness when I was healing. When the negative energy that I had taken into my spirit bubbled to the surface, I had to forgive myself for letting such negative energy into my life, and forgive the people that I thought were suppose to love me and protect me for not being able to live up to the roles that I had assigned them.

By forgiving I no longer had any expectations for others or myself that would allow guilt to build. I was able to internalize the truth that people do the best they can at any given time.

  • Gratitude is like the sunshine to the seed. If you shine your light of gratitude onto the things that you have manifested into your life then you will begin to get more of what you have. Your prosperity, health and love will all multiply. Gratitude comes after forgiveness.

You must be honest, patient and willing to change in order for these things to work.If you are interested in actively manifesting the life you want keep a journal and begin by asking these questions:

What in your life has been bothering you?

What has really been eating at you, occupying your daily thoughts?

What problems continually reoccur in your life?

What chronic health problems do you have?

Who in your life really bothers you?

What do you dislike about yourself?

Remember that people, illnesses and events are all mirrors to the things that we have accepted as our truths and internalized into our spirits. If something is chronic in your life, whether it is a person, an illness or a problem that reoccurs you have not taken the time to ask what it represents.

Some things are simple to understand. A heart problem can be that you’ve cut yourself off from love because you feel you don’t deserve it. You may never be content at your job because you are not fulfilling your desires to be creative, because you believe that you have to work “hard” to make money. Look at your life closely from a place of love, with a desire to heal and see what doesn’t feel “right”. That’s where you must start the change.

The counter question to the above questions is:

If whatever reoccurring things in your life were a metaphor for something, what would it mean to you?

Be very honest with yourself. It’s only with honestly that you can heal.

By understanding the symbolic language of what is manifesting in your life you can find the truth that you have internalized and change it, so that you may manifest the life you want.

Affirm daily, “I am empowered by my personal truths. I am the master of my reality. I consciously create the life that I want with love and gratitude.”

I hope these techniques offer something for your spiritual practice! Please, let me know if you have any other questions.

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Limpia With An Egg

Many people have contacted me asking about egg cleansings. Sometimes referred to as, “Limpia”, which is Spanish meaning, “cleaning”.

This technique of spiritual cleansing using an egg is connected to many different cultures and traditions because the egg has long been regarded as symbol of life, the connotation being the it takes on energy. I have cherished this particular technique for many years because I have had so much personal success with it.

At one point my family had adopted a puppy that had been malnourished, and could not walk because her leg bones had grown faster than the ligaments. She was walking on her joints. I did this technique one night before bed, and the next morning her legs were fine and she began walking like normal! It was surreal.

When using the egg you are essential going through the person’s aura, and body, pinpointing specific areas if necessary, and allowing the eggs sponge like properties to absorb the energy. The egg traps the energy. The negativity transfers from you, to the egg.

Think about this when choosing where you buy your eggs… because even when they aren’t being used in a cleansing session, eggs can take on negative vibrations!

Self-cleansing To perform an egg cleansing on yourself there are two ways you can do it. Either in combination with a spiritual bath, or on it’s own.

  1. Start with a fresh egg. Wash the egg in a bath of salt water and lemon juice before you begin.
  2. Breathe deeply and relax. Say a prayer to whatever high power you wish. Ask for their assistance and blessing. Imagine the egg being touched by their presence.
  3. Hold the egg in your dominant hand and begin rubbing it over your body. You can either touch your body, or hold it a few inches above the surface.
  4. Begin at the head, working down to the eyes, the throat, the heart area, the shoulders, down the left (or right) arm and touching the palm.
  5. Switch hands here and run the egg down the right (or left) arm and touching the palm. Then switch back.
  6. Work the egg down the torso, to the navel, and the groin, down each leg, stopping at the feet and touching the soles.
  7. If you have a specific area that is in pain, or is affected, hold the egg there for a few minutes.
  8. Seal the aura with a protective oil such as bergamot, pine, sandalwood or vetiver. Dilute this in olive oil and rub over the body.
  9. Now, if you are NOT taking a cleansing bath. Dispose of the egg by breaking it in the toilet and flushing it. Then dump a cup of salt and lemon juice down the toilet. Or throw the egg into a running stream. Or near a tree off of the property.
  10. If you are taking a cleansing bath. Leave the egg in the tub while you soak. Allow it to absorb more stray energy as you relax and unwind.
  11. When you are finished with you cleansing bath, follow step 8 and 9.

Extra Tips

  • Hold the egg at the base of the head, where the skull and the spine meet. This is one of our receptive areas. Energy tends to enter here. This will help remove any strong attachments.
  • Think of the egg as you would a sage smudge and “sweep” through the aura. Some energy is like a parasite and this allows the egg to pull it out!
  • Sleep with an egg under your bed, either in a cup of water, or in a bowl of sand. The egg will absorb negative energy from your aura, and the room while you sleep. This can help with nightmares as well. Dispose of the egg every few days!
  • You can break the egg into a bowl of water after you’ve done the initial cleansing and look at the yoke. Make sure to let the egg yoke settle in the water. If you are skilled at this you can determine how the cleansing fared by the shapes that are formed. Much like tea leaf reading. 
    • Bubbles and globs mean the energy was absorbed. This is typical.
    • Strings can mean that a more deliberate energy was pulled from the aura.
    • Black dots, or blood mean that something major was pulled from the aura. Or illness was removed. Repeat the process again.
    • If the egg cracks. Repeat the process, and focus on the area of the body where the egg cracked.
    • DO NOT GET STUCK ON THIS! All that matters is the act of rubbing the egg over your body and disposing of it…Do the technique again if you feel you need more results.

I hope these techniques offer something for your spiritual practice!

Please, let me know if you have any other questions.

If you would like me to interpret the patterns formed by your egg. Please follow the steps, break the yoke into a cup of water and take several pictures. Make sure to photograph the results in good light, from a few different angles. You can email me the photos. Purchase your egg interpretation here.

Dangerous Love

13837_168322376355_535481355_3379155_6155065_n“The dangerous thing about love is you give a part of yourself away. You give that person a piece of your heart, and you can never get it back again. That’s the beautiful, tragic price of love. Even when it ends… it truly lives on in some mystical place. Time and distance cannot erase what was, or be shifted by what will be. Love is a permanent and ever-changing being. ” -Shaheen

 

No matter how this story ends, it began in love. I felt so beautiful in your eyes and arms. You took me to the mountains. You whispered me love songs. You danced me across rooms, my eyes closed, nothing but the scent of you and your heartbeat. I know we had a love that only comes once in a life. If it’s over now… it still lives on somewhere. Where I was loved, I was home. I hope that you know.

No matter where you go, whomever you choose again to love, just know that you were the one. I will always have a place for you in my heart. There will always be an invisible silver band on the ring finger of my left hand. And you will always be handsome and precious to me… even when years have passed. And when we are old, I hope we can hold hands and say… we are the best of friends.

For now we can be silent. We can circle around our feelings. We can touch faintly on what really is. You can say you are moving on, and I can say I just don’t care. I can secretly cry, and you can secretly be lost out there. Just know if there comes a night, when the day has been too hard, you can’t handle anymore harsh words, and you need to come home… the right side of my bed will be opened for you. Crawl in by the light of the moon and lay down your sorrow to me. I will love you.

I mourn the loss of love that was snuffed out before it could really begin. We were children in love… so much to grow and learn. We had the world in our hands. You threw it away. I know it was in fear, and nothing else. I know now I did nothing wrong. And I know you still love me. But why did you run from me. What could I have done to make you stay? Why did both of our hearts have to break this way? We had a love strong enough to brave the storm.

But I flung myself hard against the storm, and I shattered once again. I’m not really sure if we can leave here with something warm. Unless we remember that they flames of love never really die. There will come a night, when you slip out of your shell, and you fall deep into the glow of my eyes. You will tell me everything. You will fall in love again. You will realize what is missing. And you will want it back.

No one can fill us up in the same way. No one can see the beauty in your flaws. No one can love me enough to make me calm. We were supposed to be. We are meant to be. You are my everything… and one night you will wake up with a stranger and wonder where you’re husband has gone. And I will be there… somewhere trying to sleep again. Come home, baby.
