7 Power Thoughts for Living More Intently


Do you want more joy?

Do you want to feel empowered, inspired, authentic and whole?

I know I do! Many of us are looking for more ways to find true north, to find are true place and purpose in the world. But more importantly many of us are looking for ways to actually feel in the flow of living.

I have a few power thoughts for you to contemplate. A few little seeds of truth that can help you activate your innate goodness. When you begin to use these action steps you will fall into the flow, live on purpose, and make daily steps to living intently.

I’ve said it before, and I will say it again… we are all telling an energetic story! Our energetic story is our views of the world, and how we play in it. The idea of being authentic seems to come up a lot in the “new age”, self-help and metaphysical world… for some of us it may sound like fluff! But what we are actually talking about is being conscious and aware of what our intention is!

Okay so here we go!

  1. Are you focused on your health and wellbeing?

Your body is always talking to you! Isn’t that a fun idea? Whatever you are dealing with physically is the accumulated history of your energetic story, your perspective of the world. When you live life completely cut off from your inner voice, your intuition, you being to give up ownership of your body.

Have you been dealing with any physical issues?

Any illness, pain or discomfort?

Your disease is a message waiting to be heard. So listen. Just stop for a moment and listen.

Ask yourself: If my disease is a metaphor what does it represent?

Feed yourself good foods. Exercise. Get plenty of sleep. Drink water. Do not feel guilty when you fall off track. Believe me I love potato chips and cookies. When we look at food like the enemy then our intention becomes: Whatever I eat is going to deplete me. Bless your cookie baby!

  1. How are you taking action?

Inaction is passive living. When you live passively you are telling the Universe, and all the other things you are linked into… do what you want with me because I’m not in control. Be clear about what you are doing, and what you are not doing.

If it’s not yes, then it’s no! Wow. Now you can take action. Stop struggling with maybe. Stop struggling with indecisiveness. When you are indecisive you are leaking out your power everywhere.

Ask yourself: Why am I afraid to take action? What do I have to lose? How can I take ownership of my life now?

Guilt is not welcomed here. Don’t do it for a second. So what… you haven’t been taking the reins for a while. Now you can. The present moment is your place of power. Look at your past inaction is a gathering period. You were in fear of something before, but remind yourself: Fear usually tells us we are getting closer to something good.

  1. Do you choose positive thoughts?

Negative self-talk is a pandemic. Thinking negatively seems to be in vogue, everyone just accepts it as the way it is. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Really! You do not have to tell yourself negative things. In fact you’ve probably been telling yourself negative things without even knowing it.

So what happens if you change your inner dialogue to something positive?

Have you ever tried it?

What does it feel like when you say something negative to yourself?

How does it feel in your body?

What happens to your mood?

What happens to your energy?

What happens to your digestive system?

Now say something positive.

How does that feel? What changed?

You don’t have to believe it right away. Talk nicely to yourself. Think of your mind, your spirit, and your empowered self, like a little, feisty black cat. You have to lure it in, talk sweetly to it, and give it a treat and a good rubdown. If you yell it at, it’s going to scratch you and run away.

I find my negative self-talk comes in and goes out in a flash. I usually catch my negative thoughts right at the end. And then I think… Wow, Shaheen you really are doing a number on yourself now. But I turn it back around when I can. For every negative thing I say, I replace it with two positive things. It feels so good.

Try it!

  1. Are you organized?

Your home is an out picturing of your inner world. Your stuff represents your thoughts, and where you are placing your mental energy.

What are you surrounding yourself with?

How many piles of things are you leaving unattended?

What responsibilities are falling by the wayside?

Clutter, and stuff are distractions. They are pockets of unintentional energy. We want to be on purpose, we want to align with an intention. Look at your piles of stuff and rather than be brought down by them, view them as found currency. Work through it, release it and free it up for a better energetic investment.

Everything you own has a piece of your energy in it. Chew on that for a bit. Then spit it out.

  1. Do you honor the imperfect?

Perfect is never really perfected, plain and simple. Wabi-sabi is the Japanese view of honoring the imperfect. When things are imperfect they have character. They feel personal and filled with life.

Bless the imperfect. Find beauty in the things that just seem to be a little off. Look at the bark of a tree. It is not perfect. It has knots, bumps and discolorations. But it feels on purpose. It is intentional. It is guided by the deeper pulse of the Universe. Imperfect is art in action.

What are you trying to make perfect?

How is perfection holding you back?

Usually ideas of perfection are really fear in disguise. The fear to move forward. The fear to fail. The fear to be right. The fear to actually have to do something!

  1. Are you forming your own opinions?

Opinions are swirling through the air like dirt particles. Opinions aren’t necessarily bad, they’re is just an overabundance of them. Really we use opinions as a way to make things relative so that we can comprehend them. But you can have your own opinion.

Our heads are filled with the voices of so many other people. And even more insane is that we try to listen to all of those other voices, ignoring our own. Your voice, your idea, your voice of the world is valid.

Ask yourself:

What do I really think?

What do I really feel?

How does this go against the grain of the other thinkers in my life?

Why am I listening to them, and not myself?

When you free your spirit from the opinions of others you begin to float. Life is more vibrant. You may find yourself more colorful, and a bit eccentric. Gosh, the way we would live if we didn’t think anyone was watching.

  1. Do you love what you are doing?

Are you in a job, relationship, situation, or pattern of thinking that makes you unhappy?

Why are you doing it?

Maybe look at the other power thoughts above to answer that question.

Relationships and jobs are the two biggest pain points in people’s lives. We tend to bleed out our power into things that make us feel completely unhappy. But you are meant to be happy. That is your right that is the law of the Universe.

Remember, if it isn’t a yes, then it is a no! Say no when you really mean no. Don’t say yes out of fear, or guilt, or responsibility. You do not have to justify yourself.

Just ask yourself: Does this feed my spirit? If not, move along!

Do you want help on your journey to live more intently?

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.

Sessions are done in-person, or via long distance. Wherever you are in the world Shaheen can work with you!

How to Use High Vibration to Spiritually Cleanse and Protect Yourself

I have written extensively on spiritual/psychic cleansing, which is the act of releasing negative, unwanted and unintentional energies that surround you. This is an affirmative process that defines your space, and reestablishes your connection to your highest good. With that being said, spiritual cleansing is just that cleaning.

If you dust your home, rest assured that you will need to dust again. If you cleanse your energy body, you will need to do it again! What a practical concept. You are wiping away the unwanted, but you must replace it with something.

Think about it this way, when you are spiritually cleansing yourself, you are setting an intention hat you are releasing something unwanted, to allow you to connect with something you do want. Break that down… what do you want…well to put it simply you are wanting to be happy, you are wanting to feel good, you are wanting to be whole, completely tapped into your natural state of wellbeing.

Vibration is the key. Everything is a vibration, whether it is a low/negative, or high/positive vibration…everything is vibration. When you are spiritually cleanse yourself, you are ridding yourself of accumulated, negative gunk.

What allowed that negative gunk to form?

You! Your state of being, either consciously, or unconsciously you welcomed those negative vibrations. Now that is not meant to instill a sense of guilt in you, or fear. It is just the fact of the matter. This can come from a simple willingness to be open to whatever is around you. And at different times of your life you will find your defenses are weak.

The key to successful spiritual cleansing is to raise your vibration, and protect your energy self. Raising your vibration means that you are moving from a lower vibratory state, to a higher one. You are moving from fear, to acceptance. You are moving from pain, to wellness. You are moving from anger, to love.

When you clear one vibration, you must replace it with its energetic opposite. This is where most people fall short. If you spiritually release your pain, and then continue to follow pain patterns, then this will only be a very, very temporary fix.

Clear the negativity away, and choose a vibration that is opposite then you will not need to cleanse yourself as often. Taking protective measures after spiritual cleansing will fortify this process, and essentially take you to the next highest vibration.

Name your vibration

Before you do a spiritual cleansing session take some time to meditate on your state of being. Name your vibration. Give it a name. What do you feel in that moment?

Give it a one-word name. Be simple, be clear, and be honest. There is power in a name. If you name something you are getting to the heart of whatever it is. It doesn’t matter the source of your vibration. The vibration itself is all that matters.

Maybe you named your current vibration as anger. So you are feeling anger right now. You are being bound up in anger. You are vibrating with anger, and you are attracting more opportunities for anger.

It doesn’t matter where your feelings of anger come from. They may come from you, and you alone. Or maybe your experience of anger is brought on from someone in your life. On the deepest level all things are coming from you because somewhere you have accepted that state of being.

Remember, everything is a mirror of your inner world.

Later you can look for the source, and make a conscious effort to eliminate, or avoid that thing!

But for now we are naming the vibration. You are experiencing a vibration of anger. So what is the opposite of anger? The opposite of anger is love.

So you are eliminating, cleansing away the vibration of anger to make way for the vibration of love. You want to experience love, and in order to do this you have to wipe away the feelings of anger.

Go through the process of clearing away anger. This can be done in any number of ways. Cleanse yourself with a Sacred Sage Bundle to release negative energy. Try misting a botanical mixture like, The Gypsy’s Aura Elixir.  Do a sea salt bath to clear way negative energy. Whatever method works for you… do it.

And then… replace it with the opposite vibration.

How to choose a better vibration

You can simply choose the next vibration. Remember, your most powerful tool for change is your mind. Your mind is the way you direct your reality. When you consciously manifest your life, you can experience whatever you want.

That sounds simple, and easy. And really it is. But for most people it is easier said than done. But here we are, in this moment, choosing to do something different. And that is the key!

Name your next vibration. Name the next highest vibration you can believe in. Maybe you are releasing anger, and wanting to move to a place of love. But love might be way too far off for you to go right now. So we move to a vibration of acceptance.

You are accepting your experience. You are accepting yourself. Acceptance is the pathway to love. Maybe you are going to move to a state of like… and then from there you can move to a state of love.

A few ways to infuse your energy body with a new, higher vibration

Work with crystal energy. Crystals are seeds of energy. They are concentrated forms of intentional vibrations. When you work with crystals you are infusing yourself with the essence of whatever vibration that crystal holds.

In this case we are moving through anger, to love. So using a stone of love, that vibrates with love, will open the heart center, integrating into your vibration, and helping you get to a move loving place.

This can be a simple process of holding a stone of love. Or taking a bath infused with a love crystal. Rose quartz is a powerful stone of love. It is gentle, and friendly. This will help to balance and fortify your intention for love.

Herbs, and botanicals also vibrate at a high rate. Taking an herbal bath will help to infuse your aura with a certain vibratory pattern. The traditional tool Florida Water has been used for years in spiritual practices because it vibrates at a high rate. It basically eradicates negative vibrations.

You can use Florida Water after you have done a traditional spiritual cleansing. Mist yourself with Florida Water, dab it on your wrist. And as you are doing this set the intention for yourself that you are going to feel a higher vibration.

Affirm this, concentrate on it. Meditate on it. Remind yourself of this higher vibration every time you begin to stray from it. And believe it, feel it in every fiber of your being.

When I work with clients during an Intuitive Consultation we are naming the energies at play in their lives. When we name these energies, and see how they are working through life… we can find points of power to make change. This will give you a snapshot of where you are, where you’ve been, and how that is dictating the path you are going down.

When I work with clients during a spiritual cleansing, energy session we are working to remove these negative blocks, and filling the holes with a higher vibration. I enjoy this process because it is a proactive approach to spiritual/psychic cleansing.

We are not only removing, or working to remove the block, but we are trying to replace it with something better.

If something is making you sick, you treat the symptom, and remove the source. If you just treat the symptom of your sickness… in this case your energetic disharmony, without removing the source then you will only get back what you had before.

I invite you to take this step forward. I would be happy to help you along the way. I want you to feel empowered. I want you to move forward in your life in a positive direction. We can do this together if you like.

Follow your heart!

How to Reclaim Your Power

In this hectic, crazy world there is need for spiritual self-care. We are all doing our best to get through life, to really live, and cultivate our true purpose. This can be an elusive task for many people, especially since we live a culture that pushes us to work harder, to swallow our feelings, and to actually neglect our wellbeing. But this doesn’t have to be the case.

Dare I say that this is counter intuitive. Your true nature, your right is to be happy, and whole. There is a misconception that if you take time for your own needs you are either being selfish, or irresponsible. The hell with that… you are a beautiful being of light and you need to make your wellbeing the number one goal!

When you revel in your light, when you light yourself shine, when you are amble and whole… you shine that light on the world. You are the best you that you can be for everyone, and every situation you are involved with. That is the real goal, right?

So how can we achieve this fabulous way of being? Well there are a million ways… but to start you can be honest with yourself. Be honest with where you are, and where you want to be. This allows you to set intentions. From there you can consciously manifest the life that you want.

Pinpointing where you are, and if that is in alignment with what you want to manifest is what I do. In an Intuitive Consultation we are looking at a snapshot of your energy. From there we see where you are losing energy, and where you are gaining it. Of course we don’t want to lose any energy… we want positive energetic investments.

Once we know where you are, we can make a plan, a path to work on. This can be done in a number of ways. My favorite being the act of reclaiming energy. Reclaim your energy through grounding and centering, meditation, and spiritual/psychic cleansing.

Much of my work, and practice is based on the idea of spiritual cleansing, and balancing your energy body. Why is that? Because your energy is the accumulation of your thoughts, ideas, and experiences and beliefs about the world, and how you fit into it. This energetic story as I like to call it, dictates everything that is happening in your life.

If you are blindly sending energy out into the world… with no direction, or no conscious effort then you are doing yourself a disservice.

Are you feeling fatigued? Stressed? Even depressed? Are you feeling unhealthy? Lost? Well this is the result of not being aware of your energy. Don’t let this make you feel guilty, or bad about what you are doing… or what you’ve done. No, this is a point of power, right here, right now. We are recognizing there is room to grow, and now we are going to tap into the potential, and make magic happen!

As an intuitive consultation I want nothing more than to build you up! I want to give you the tools, and the understating to make your life one badass place to live. If you aren’t happy, then stop right now… and make a change.

So you want to know were to begin?

Well start with all this beautiful information I have presented on my website. There is so much here that I know will help you. You can take that time of yourself. You deserve it.

If you need a guide, and a friend contact me. We will do an intuitive consultation. We will look at your life as a whole, answer the big questions, and shedding light on the big holes. The act of setting up a consultation is a call to reclaiming your power. I want that for you!

As I said before, spiritual cleansing is a huge part of my practice, personal and professional. Spiritual cleansing is the act of clearing the slate. Revealing, honing in on and releasing the things that live in your energy body, and your life. The trick to successful spiritual cleansing is clearing away the ick, and then replacing it with something good. This is where most people falter.

If you remove something energetically… good or bad, something must take it’s place This is where “negative” energy comes into place. But this negative energy is usually nothing more than unpurposeful, or unintentional energy. If we remove that, and then replace it with an intention your energy body will return to a state of wellbeing… and like magic your life will come back!

Now, this isn’t a quick fix. I don’t promote miracles. I promote self-empowerment. We make the decisions… and we have to stick to them. Getting into he habit of taking care of yourself and can be difficult, we all falter, that’s why it’s good to have a friend, a guide, a teacher to help us on the path. We are in this together.

One of the most rewarding things for me is working with a client through spiritual cleansing, and energy work. I do this long distance or in person. This is the reason I created the Gypsy’s Aura Elixir… it’s a call to action, a way to give you the tools, and the power to take care of yourself in daily life.

When I work with a client to release negative energy, and bring them back to an ample, expansive place I feel like I am sharing a spiritual moment. This is rewarding for everyone involved. I like to do this long-distance, or in person… either way we are creating a cosmic place for us to work on bettering our lives.

I love to offer tools to help you. In a personal cleansing, and blessing ceremony we set an intention. What do you want to release from your life? What do you want to bring into your life? Then we move through the energy bodies, using crystal vibrations, sage smudging, and sacred botanical waters. This is a way to release the unnecessary, and bring back the light energy that belongs to you.

From there we spend some time talking about where you want to go next. And what other actions steps you can take to move forward. This can be helpful suggestions of creating a vision board, or setting intentions. Maybe a few spiritual practices that you can incorporate into your daily life.

Any good reading will bring things to light… from there it is your job to make it work. But with a cleansing/energy session, or a personal blessing ceremony we create the space, and the action steps for you to do that. You aren’t alone!

I want you to find your light, your center, your authentic expression of you in every moment. Take from here what works for you, what doesn’t just leave behind. But if you take away one thing… let it be this…

You are beautiful. You have a right to be whole. Life doesn’t have to be heard. You can live your dreams.

Visit, here to book an appointment for an Intuitive Consultation, or an Energy/Spiritual Cleansing Session.

I look forward to hearing from you!

What Are Spirit Guides?

Everyone has a collective of celestial helpers waiting to by their side. These are your spirit guides, and they are waiting patiently to help you. Sadly, some people never learn to consciously connect with their guides, but here is some information to introduce you to who they are and what they do!

What are Spirit Guides?

  • A spirit guides is a discarnate entity that’s sole purpose is to aide you on your life path.  You and your guide made a soul level contract before incarnation that they would watch over, guide and protect you, as well as disperse spiritual insights and synchronicities into your life.
  • Your spirit guide has a unique understanding of you and the path that you have laid out for yourself. Often they work with you when you create your spiritual map. They have a vantage point from which they guide you because they are able to see your map clearly and they can view the “bigger” picture of our journey.
  • Your spirit guide is your souls assistant working behind the scenes. Whether you are aware of them, they constantly watch over, protect and guide you.

Does everyone have a spirit guide?

  • Absolutely everyone has a spirit guide. Some may argue that there are people who do not have guides, but as far as I have seen we all do. No matter what your religious background or beliefs are, even if you do not believe in God, you still have a guide.
  • We have a primary guide, who has incarnated at least once. The reason being is so that they have empathy about our journey here on earth. Now if you do not believe in incarnation or that whole philosophy it doesn’t negate the idea of a spirit guide. We also have a secondary guide or guides that can walk into your lives at key points bringing us more specialized guidance. For example: If you are beginning to explore a new career path and you are very passionate about it, but not very confidant you may have a secondary guide who steps in and helps you in this area. They are specialty guides.

How can I recognize the presence of my spirit guide?

  • Any time you are stressed or undergoing extreme changes in your life a spirit guide will be more dominant in your life. Their purpose is to help you with the difficult areas of your journey, so when times are tough remember that they are there.
  • It is common for people to hear their name being called, when no one is around. Usually your guides are trying to get your attention.
  • You may see flashing lights, often blue or white. Maybe even shadows or silhouettes out of the corner of your eye.
  • Reoccurring dreams, especially of a stranger whom you feel comfortable with.
  • A unique fascination with a name or geographical place, which is often connected to the name or ethnicity of your guide.
  • Some sort of reoccurring symbol. Such as numbers, letters, motifs, etc.
  • Physical sensations. Often the feeling of being touched on a shoulder or hand or someone standing near you to one side or the other.

How can I know my guides name and what they look like?

  • Most people like to know the name of their guide first. There are many ways to get the name of your guide. Basically you can ask, “What is your name?” and then wait to see which name pops into your head first, or which names stands out to you (the next person you meet, a billboard, song on the radio or it may be written on a piece of paper). You can also use a baby name book and open a page at random and select a name by pointing with your eyes closed. Or the other way is to use a name that you feel drawn to.
  • People often want to know how their guides look or what their sex is before they connect with them. My answer to this is 1) they may appear in whatever form they wish. As an animal, ball of light or a physical person. Your primary guide will typically take the form of a human. Meditation is key in finding out what they look like or you may have a dream or vision or you could ask a reader. 2) You can ask them to appear in a certain form because your guide will do whatever it takes to work with you in your comfort zone.

How can I easily speak to my guide?

  • The simplest way to speak with your guide is by talking out loud to them. Your guide will find some way to communicate back with you. This could be through symbols, visions, dreams, songs, verbal communication, feelings, television programs or other people. They will find the best way to communicate with you if you just trust.
  • Using an oracle deck is an easy and powerful way to communicate with them.
  • Write letters to them or leave little messages posted around your home or office.
  • Mediate. You can do this through a guided meditation or by simply being still for a few minutes a day.
  • Creativity and art. They are drawn to creativity and they love to inspire us. Inspiration comes from the word spirit!

A few more things

  • Angels and spirit guides are not the same. Typically your spirit guide is not a loved one who passed. These are three different types of entities.
  • Your guides have far more ability to help you when you ASK for them to help!
  • Spirit guides do not control any aspect of your life; they only offer you help and guidance. You have free will at all times. You may even ask for certain aspects of your life to be inaccessible to your guides if you like.
  • They are not all knowing. They have more insight into our life because they are watching outside of it and they can connect with our subconscious mind which is far wiser and our map.
  • Guides are never negative, harmful, pushy, controlling or frightening.
  • They know when to turn their heads if you know what I mean, but they are never truly absent.
  • They truly are your bestfriends. When you begin to connect with them, it should be more like a reunion, rather than a first encounter.

This information is only a small portion of what can be written about the subject. I’ve only pulled out the basics to get you started so that you can begin working with and calling on your guides.  Once you’ve read this you can begin enriching your life by consciously connecting with them.

Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions that you may have about this subject. If there is anything that I can elaborate on or any confusion I may clear up, I would be more than happy to.  And I would love to hear any stories you may have about working with your guides. What was your first encounter like? Do you remember the first time you consciously worked with your guide?
