And 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?
Today make ONE RADICAL Gesture OF SELF-EXPESSION!
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?

I bet you are one of the many people in an ever growing circle of empaths. Empaths are psychically open, and sensitive people who can pick up on the intentions and vibrations swirling around them. Imagine every thought, every feeling, every idea, every action that you encounter as a wave, a wave of sound, a wave of energy, a wave of psychic impression. When that energy is sent out, the empath naturally pick it up, and internalizes it!
No wonder empaths have sensitive systems. You process energy through your energy centers, and your energy centers are the subtle parts of your body. Everyone is telling an energetic story. Your energetic story is the accumulation of your thoughts, fears, ideas and beliefs about playing in the world. Sensitive people cannot discern between their energetic story, and the story of others. Meaning that as someone throws energy your way it feeds into your own microcosm, integrating into your system.
So why do empaths have sensitive bodies, and systems?
Well to start if you are an empath you struggle knowing when something is your feeling/thought/idea/etc, or someone else’s. On a deeper level you have a hard time knowing what is good for you, versus what is supposed to be good for you. Looking at health, diet and fitness we see that there is a constant stream, no a constant flood of information and insights about what is good for us vs. not. And on and on it goes. Fad diets, good fats and bad fats, allergic reactions, mysterious additives, etc.
To put it simply, empaths usually do things to their bodies, such as eating things, that really are not necessary. In some cases empaths eat, or “abuse” their bodies as a form of avoiding or distancing from these extreme feelings. Over the years I have learned that most people who are battling with weight are empaths, and they are ganging weight as a form of protection!
Taking it slow is a good rule of thumb! Especially with medications, vitamins, exercise and rich foods. A lot of times, less is more. Try things in increments. Maybe it is changing your diet bit by bit, rather than a dramatic departure. Or incorporating a supplement small dosages at a time.
Listen to your body. Listen to your system. See what works for you personally. Not what works for everyone else. And know that energy happens in the aura, and then makes its way into the body. Tuning into the subtle signs of your body, will clue you into the subtle energies blooming around you.

Empaths are sensitive to sound. If you are empathic you can confirm this. I know I often will become overwhelmed by a lot of noise, especially in a crowded place or when there are competing noises. This can be anything from a random noise, to music, to the tone of someones voice. Sounds shoot right through the empath, and can leave them soothed, or completely defeated.
Sound is vibration, and vibration is the frequency of energy. Empaths are sensitive to energy frequencies, and actually take them into their core. As sound moves through the empath it either competes, or flows with their personal vibration. If the sounds or noises are harsh, unappealing, or on a different “channel” than the empath then it can be extremely upsetting.
Turn your awareness to moments when noise, and sound have shaken you up, and knocked you off your center. What kind of noise was it? Was it a person? Music? Or just a random noise from the hustle and bustle of the day?
I have noticed that sounds from music will affect the empath on a deep level because music has an imbedded intention that the empath feels on an intimate level. If this intention isn’t a feel good one, then they will instantly take on that new intention, or emotion. If it is a person then maybe that person’s energy is opposing your own. Or they are burning off excess energy, and you are not in a state of taking on anything extra!
When you are having an adverse reaction to sounds it may come as anger, frustration, sadness, annoyance, depression, anxiety, and even surplus energy. Sound can even elicit a physical response, such as pain, soreness, weakness, and especially stomach problems.
So what can you do?
- Ground and center. You should ground and center daily, especially in situations where you are feeling knocked off kilter. Simply find your breath. Inhale, and exhale, finding a rhythm. Feel the ground beneath you, and the stacking of your bones sustaining you. Let yourself relax into the security of your body, your surroundings, your position on the earth. Now, begin rooting into the earth. Imaging a strong flash of light moving from your crown, down your spine, and through your legs, and feet into the earth. This flash of light is clearing energy, and rooting you deep into the earth. Affirm, verbally, or mentally, “I am solid, stable and whole. I am rooted deep in the earth, grounded in this moment, grounded in my spirit.”
- Cross your arms. Have you noticed you cross your arms when you are speaking to someone that makes you uncomfortable, intimidated, angry or overwhelmed? When you cross your arms, you are crossing your solar plexus, which is the energy center where you process intention and energy. When something intense is being sent your way, you can consciously cross your arms, and deflect whatever is being sent at you. Crossing your arms, thus protecting your solar plexus can help curb upset stomachs and poor digestion that the empath seems to experience often.
- Wear headphones and listen to uplifting music. If you are in an industry, or situation where you can wear headphones then you have a reprieve from whatever noises seem to be arousing your frustration. Listening to feel good sounds temporarily suspends the energy vibration being sent your way, and creates a type of personal sacred space. Doing this even for a few minutes throughout the day will give you a good reset. It will fortify your personal shield. Make sure this is positive, uplifting music. Something ambient, and atmospheric. New age sounds. Nature sounds. Or classical music are all good options. Instrumentals, without any voices, or lyrics are a great option!
I hope this gives you a little help for your empathetic experiences. Be good to yourself!

“Empaths are highly attuned, sensitive individuals who have a natural connection to the subtle worlds. These are the subtle worlds of thought, emotion, spirit and energy. These people tend to be artistic, intuitive and right-brained individuals who process the world around them through “feeling”.”
It is essential for empathic people to take time for rest and relaxation. This is how you disconnect from harmful energies, and recharge yourself so that you feel more vital. I urge you to make a daily ritual of this. You will find yourself improving every day.
A powerful way to recharge your essence, and bring yourself to center is through the ritual of bathing. Bathing has been a powerful form of energetic cleansing for thousands of years, and it offers you a chance to charge your energy with good intention.
Adding crystals to your bathwater will create a unique vibration that can infuse the aura, and invigorate the spirit. I have created a simple bath for empaths. Try this and see how you feel.
Crystal Bath for Empaths
Gather 3 crystals: Citrine, Amethyst, and Rose Quartz.
Citrine is the path opener stone. It pushes out negative vibrations and enhances the aura to a state of wellbeing. Amethyst is a stone of protection, and clarity, opening the third eye to help with clear intuitive perception. Amethyst will also act as a vacuum for holding unnecessary energies. Rose Quartz is a heart stone, releasing any bound up energies that may be clogging the heart center.
Combined together, these 3 stones create a calming, healing and stabilizing vibration that will benefit anyone, especially the empath.
Also gather essential oils of lavender, rosemary and geranium.
To create your sacred bath fill you tube half full with warm water. Make sure that the temperature suites a relaxing state of mind. This is a type of meditation, and isn’t meant for bathing with soap. You are creating a sacred moment.
Add to the water 3-5 drops of each oil. Be sure to do this as the water runs, dropping them under the spout so that the oils are dispersed evenly through the bath. You can even drop the oils in ½ cup of witch hazel, and then pour them into the bath.
Now place each stone into the water, focusing on their specific vibration. Ask for their energies to infuse the bath, and charge your aura to bring you into equilibrium, and honor your highest good.
When the bath is ready, simply step in and sink down. Let yourself melt into the calming presence of the scents of the botanicals, the vibration of the crystals and the serenity of being alone, and in the moment.
Release anything that seems to be troubling you. Imagine that it is flowing out, into the water, and transformed by the healing properties. Let yourself be filled with light, and vitality. Feel this in every fiber of your being. You are glowing.
Set an intention for yourself. Affirm that you are safe, balanced and whole. Affirm that you are in this moment, now… fully present, open to the shift, and completely deserving of this gift.
Stay there for at least 15 minutes, or as long as you like. When you are finished express a feeling of gratitude. Towel yourself dry, and turn in for the evening.

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!
