Self-Expression as a Path to Spiritual Empowerment

Stevie Nicks Wild Heart Tour 1983And the days go by like a strand in the wind… in the web that is my own… I begin again. –Stevie Nicks

My head and hands hum with energy. I can feel the raw power of my inner self building, and pushing to the surface. Sometimes I stomp, twirl and sing as loud as I can to release this passion. Self-expression is the path to spiritual empowerment.

Every moment is a chance to begin again. Opportunities slip in and out of our lives. Sometimes we will grab them by the horns and other times we are completely blind-sided. Yet, there is always another moment to be free, to be brave, to be wild.

Have you ever felt the call of your own raw passion?

Or the intense energy of your own creative expression trying to break free?

Of course you have… we all experience this. This is our true self. The self that seeks to be heard, felt and given life.

When you sit at your desk, antsy for something bigger, and bolder you are feeling your spirit. When you walk down the street with a deep longing for something exciting and new you are feeling your spirit. And when you actually fall curious to your own longing you go into a deep communion with the Universe.  

Creative expression is act of prayer.

Pray out loud. Pray with your words. Pray with your voice. Pray with your body. Pray with your colors. Pray with your actions.

I want you to know that you are always being born again to the moment.

Do you dare to be transformed into something bigger, bolder and free?


What does that mean?

Radical gestures of self-expression are those unadulterated moments of doing something for the hell of it. Doing something because you want to. Not because someone else told you to. Radical gestures of self-expression are those moments where you dance, and sing like no one is watching. Put on a show for the world just to say you did.

Go out into the WORLD, baby, and do the damn thing! 

Promise me you will do one thing that feels a little dangerous, a little wild, that takes you out of your BOX.


Let that fire, energy, and life surge through you. Get a taste of your DIVINITY and see what comes next.

I want to hear about it. Leave me a comment, or send me a message.

Want to make big changes in your life?

Energy Clearing and Intention Setting Session with Shaheen

CrystalMagicDid you know you are always telling an Energetic Story?

Your energetic story is the narrative of your life. It is the accumulation of your thoughts, ideas, beliefs, and fears about how you fit into the world, and how the world responds to you.

In the fast paced world that we live in it is easy to become overwhelmed, disconnected and completely out of touch. As the chasm between our inner and outer world grows wider, and deeper feelings of unhappiness, chaos and disenchantment become all pervasive.

You do not have to fall victim to this “forgetting”. The present moment always offers you a place of power to transform your life.

In an energy clearing and intention setting session we will pinpoint these places of resistance, pain and inflexibility. You will find what blocks of energy exist, and why. From there we will work together to move, transform and shift this energy to reflect your true intention, you authentic self!

You will begin with these key questions: What is feeding my spirit? What is depleting my spirit?

From there we will look at what really makes your heart sing. What you really want in your life. This will give us a platform, a springboard to jump from. We will find your flow, your unique rhyme with the Universe. You will jump into infinity, spiral out into the vast sea of the creative unknown. And you will begin to feed your spirit, rather than your fear.

A Spiritual Personal Day

I always find myself needing to shake off the heavy, woolen feelings that linger past winter. There’s a call that bacons me to awaken the inner gypsy that has been half asleep through the colder months. When the spring blows in it brings knew life. It fills the air with a magical energy that surrounds everything in a radiant aura. Tap into this powerful energy!

Awaken yourself with a spring cleansing ritual. Or as I like to call it… a spiritual personal day!

It’s always essential to your spiritual wellbeing to keep your aura filled with beautiful energy, and the energy of spring brings about a special change. This energy allows you to get in-touch with your true self, to become more authentically connected to spirit and to consciously manifest.

To awaken the inner gypsy and to connect with your authentic self make a day of celebrating you! This day can be filled with whatever you want. There’s no right or wrong! As long as it makes you feel good.

Here are some suggestions:

Plan your day ahead of time. The night before enjoy a nice cup of warm tea before bed. Say a prayer/blessing and let the Universe know that you are taking a sacred day to connect with yourself. Let yourself sleep in. Wake up naturally, and take note of any dreams you have.

Take a long walk in a park, or out in nature. Find a place with privacy among the trees and sunshine. Meditate for a few minutes on your inner light. Let the Goddess speak to you. What comes to the surface? Are there any “truths” that you have been avoiding in your life? Let these pearls of wisdom settle into your core.

Write a prayer or affirmation to help you connect with yourself. For example:

“Let my inner light shine through allowing wisdom to bubble to the surface.

Let the worn out masks of my identity fall away.

Let me become more congruent with my truest self self.

Let my gypsy soul immerge so that I can walk authentically in my life.”

Pick a spiritual cleansing method that resonates with you. I always enjoy cleansing baths because they are relaxing, and healing. Taking a spiritual cleansing bath becomes a little respite from everything else.

For this particular day a Rosewater Bath would be suitable. Rosewater has a delicate and gentle magic. It envelops the aura making it radiant and smooth. It makes the aura magnetic, charging it with positive energy and peace. Use pure Rosewater hydrosol in a bath, adding a cup to warm water.

Do any other activities that make you feel authentic, grounded and whole. This might be a good day to have your favorite meal, go to your favorite place, or read a favorite book. You may even want to spend some time with an old friend.

Let the spring fill you up! This is a time to remember the parts of you that have been buried all winter, and to honor those beautiful jewels. Giving yourself a personal day is a spiritual gesture that helps you gain momentum.

It allows you to realign yourself with the Universe, and that’s the ultimate form of spiritual cleansing.

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!

Here are a few prompts for you. Post, comment or tweet your reply with #SelfLoveFest

Self-trust is a form of self-love. In what ways have you learned to trust your inner knowing?

Being mindful and aware are forms of self-love. How can you be more mindful and live in the present moment?

Acceptance is a form of self-love and the first step to taking charge of your life. What parts of your life could use some acceptance?

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!!

Stay tuned for more information throughout the month!

We are moving into the second month of the New Year, and we are being pushed through doorways and into new territory to explore! This is a powerful time to make a new path for yourself, and link into something that strengthens your intentions for the 2015!

As you move into the unknown create a strong intention for yourself, to affirm your goals, and center your energy. Don’t give your power away to fears and limiting ideas. Use chaos as a creative force, rather than an enemy. Let go of the need to be in control of things, dance in the dark. Trust your intuition, and know that the Universe will respond.

There is something enlightening about letting go of the need for control of our external lives. Rather, focus on the intention of your words, thoughts, ideas, and beliefs. Let your thoughts and actions speak for you. Though it is true you cannot change your physical circumstance; you can change your reaction to the thing around you. You are the creator of your reality.

Our thoughts, dreams and wishes are the way we tell the Universe what we want. Never forget that whatever you give your focus to is a request sent to the Universe… do you want to ask for negative, or positive things? Be aware of this.

Take 10 minutes a day to become conscious of the energy you are building and directing. Hold in your spiritual center a positive feeling, idea or goal; be clear with your intention. You will be amazed at how many beautiful things will grow and bloom in your life if you do this daily!

How to Manifest with Candles

Fire has magic and an intensity that is unexplainable. We are fascinated by the glow of a candle, a campfire or a distant star burning brightly in the sky. Watching a candle flame is meditative, you see it dance gracefully around the wick, it breathes with life and power. The soft crackle of a campfire is soothing and its glow penetrates deep to our core.

Fire is healing in many ways, yet it can be devastating and destructive, it has a subtle warning that hisses from within; it can be your comfort and teacher, as well as your destroyer.

Fire has been a source of magic and ritual in many cultures and religions, it has been the keeper of life in myths, the symbol of gods, it has been consulted to divine the future. Fire is a source of life as it warms the cold nights of winter and cooks our food to ease our hunger. The fire of the sun allows us to grow food for eating and flowers for medicines and beauty. It truly is the make up of our spirit.

I find myself lighting candles nightly because they bring so much calm and comfort into my life. I light them with intentions and payers; I visualize my desires being pulled into my life by their gentle glow, like curious moths. When I am doing a reading or needing to feel inspired I will light a candle because I know that benevolent spirits are attracted to their glow. There is a natural energy that is emitted from a candle flame that isn’t produced by artificial light.

If you feel like you need a little something extra in your life light a candle and say a prayer, ask for something special as you light it. Write out a little poem or a few little “request” and tuck them underneath the base of a candle. If you are missing someone, who is living or passed carve their name into the side of the soft wax and light the candle, speaking your feelings to the flame knowing that it will be heard in their heart and soul.

The spirits of those who have passed do not see artificial light, they only see natural light… so they will see the soft glow of a candle.

Whenever I travel I love to light candles at the local churches because I feel like each one has a special energy that lives within its walls. I remember lighting candles in London, Mexico, New York City, and many other places… each one had a special prayer with a special energy guiding it swiftly to the Universe. Use this magic to bring a little light into your life.

Find a special candle that has a sweet scent and as it burns allow yourself to be lulled into a meditative state. Make it a mental cue that its time to relax when you light this particular candle. Firelight will sooth you and calm you… it will allow you to access your own inner wisdom.

Here is another Practice I love: Write all the things that I want to release from my life on pieces of paper and then I burn them in the flame of a new white, or black candle to release them from my life. This a powerful practice that I suggest all of you tries.

Always respect fire, as it is a powerful and uncontrollable element. Fire can have a mind of its own so watch it, respect it and thank it.

Whenever you are lighting a candle with intention see how the flame dances, and the wax melts. Does it strand tall and straight, or poke around, bobbing back and forth, or does it waver and struggle to burn bright? Does the wax form shapes, letters, or distinguishable images? This can all be symbolic of the energy you are sending to your intention.

If you want to take it another step further you can burn candles based off of their color. All colors hold powerful energy and the psychology of colors is something that has been explored for some time. Trust your own intuitive feeling about colors, what do you think they represent? If you see white as the color of peace and purity then use that if you are trying to draw those energies into your life. If you see red as passion then light red candles to bring a little spark back into your love life. You can find many books and lists of colors if you are interested in learning the long-standing symbolism associated with them.

Find time in the New Year to consciously manifest and to pull what you want into your life. Try this simple exercise and see what happens, I bet that powerful results will follow if you trust it.

Here is a list of a few meanings of colors that I have created from personal use:

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.

This is my personal list and associates, feel free to add or take away from whatever I have listed here.

Live Intentionally: Happy New Year 2015

The New Year is coming… be cheerful and celebrate! The Year is coming to an end, and as you say goodbye to 2014 let yourself discard old, worn-out energies, habits, and feelings. With the New Year you will invite a fresh perspective, and the motivation to begin again.

Transition into the New Year free of all negative energetic cords. Energetic cords are the links that have been created between you, and another person, place thing, or idea. This link creates a two-way line of energy allowing you to feed-off of, or giveaway your energy… and vice versa.

If these energetic cords are attached to something negative… you will feel drained, apathetic, depressed, and stagnant.

Let yourself have time for introspection to evaluate your energetic cords, and investments. Go on a journey to find what you are giving your energy to. What things have you invested in over the past year? Have your investments yielded positive results? Does your spirit feel nourished?

Take at least 15 mins to a half hour of time to meditate. Contemplate where your energy has been going through the last year. And then shift yourself into where you would like to invest that energy in 2015. What seed would you like to sew?

Get to the heart of these issues and call back you energy… so that you can consciously manifest what you want out of life!

As you make your list of New Years Resolutions, or the seeds you will sew, be very intent. Put your energy into things that really make you feel whole, authentic, and alive. Let your resolutions be bigger than just wishful things to muse on for the upcoming year… empower them as intentions, affirmations!

As you phrase your New Years “Intentions”, place them in the present because when you affirm something you want it to feel as real as possible. You want gear your mind to think as though the good is already taking place! Affirm like it is happening now! 

Example: “I am organized, rested and optimistic.”

And never use the word “no” because no is completely canceled out by the subconscious mind.

So to affirm, “I have no issues.” Would really be “I have issues.”

Wishing you lots of luck, and a Happy New Year!

Happy Thanksgiving: #RantGratitude

Hi Beautiful People!

The last few days have been absolutely magical. So many wonderful things have begun to come into being. I keep experiencing synchronicities right and left, and I feel so in alignment with the Universe. When things “click” like this it is surreal! 

I had to stop for a moment and just take in all the good energy. While everything is expansive and in motion I have to be still. Grounded in this moment. Present in this experience. Being completely appreciative of everything that is happening around me. 

Honestly… I feel drunk with gratitude! And really gratitude is the foundation of consciously manifesting. Gratitude is the heart of the law of attraction. If you aren’t grateful for what you’ve received in your life, then you’ve signaled to the Universe that you aren’t aware of the miracles in front of you.

It is so easy to get caught up in daily life. Lost in our heads, our jobs, or responsibilities. The chaos takes over. But gratitude doesn’t need big bells and whistles. Just a simple nod of thanks. A quiet smile. A little dance.

I decided I need to give myself space to be grateful daily. So I am challenging myself to a list of things I am grateful for each week.

I urge you to do the same!

This is the #RantGratitude  Challenge!!

Join me! Rant what you’re grateful for. Each day, or once a week… Leave it in the comments.

Share something daily on Twitter.

Use #RantGratitude 

Lets create one big vortex of awesome energy through giving thanks for the awesomeness of the Universe and our spirits.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

The Power of Purging

Embrace the wisdom of letting go. It is time to release heavy attachments that deplete you and bleed away your joy. So often we hold onto things much longer than we need to. When you have outgrown something release it. When you hold on to things you keep blessings and gifts at bay. 

Evaluate the people, objects, feelings, beliefs and ideas you are holding onto. Have you outgrown any? What is choking the life from your dreams, wishes and goals?

Allow the black holes in your life to come into your awareness… what is sucking up, absorbing and consuming your energy, vitality, and enthusiasm? Trust your intuition. Usually the fist thing that comes to mind is the right thing. Begin your purging there!

Allow this message to settle in! Especially with the retrograde in force… we are looking toward the old, and wrapping things up. Mend all holes. Allow the soft light of the Divine to wrap around you, and wash away the negative and bring about healing.

Now is the perfect time to check in. See where you are, and where you are going. An intuitive reading, or a Reiki session is great ways to really evaluate where you are and create a path toward your wellbeing.
