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 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 intentions are!
Okay so here we go!
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 do something!
- Are you forming your own opinions?
Opinions are swirling through the air like dust 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. You can have your own opinion.
Our heads are filled with the voices of so many other people. what’s even more insane is how we try to listen to all of those other voices, ignoring our own. Your voice, your idea, your place in world is valid.
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.
- 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 R I G H T. 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?

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.

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!
My head and heart have been filled with so many things. Shadows and glimmers of light, blooming into stories. There is something in the air that hints at change. I see it outwardly… a big move coming, and a chance to see my life from a different vantage point. It is empowering to take a step forward into the unknown, and closer to the life that feels congruent with my spirit.
In some ways I feel like I am finally learning to dance, and yet I am still learning from my own inner monsters… but isn’t that the journey we are all on? For now I see a few things clearly. The moment to moment just makes sense, as long as I don’t think too much about it. “Just be”, That’s what I hear in my heart.
Here is to new life, and new adventures. I am opening myself up to the good things. I am taking time to let myself be with love, and light. To be with my dreams, and my goals. I know there is a lot of magic still to be found.
Now that all these changes are happening I have to honor when I can and cant do things. I need to honor when there is no need to write, and jump at the chance to explore a new idea. It doesn’t always make sense on the outside. But life isn’t about making sense to the outside world… it’s about making sense to yourself.
My prayer is that I can learn to dance, to move and grind with all the things that live inside, and all the things that the Universe is sending my way. The more open, the more humble, and the more grateful I am the more magic I seem to find. I guess that is grace. I affirm grace in this moment, in each moment.
Take a moment to feel the grace inside of you. Take a moment to affirm grace. Be beautiful, and be brace. Most of all spread your love to the world… there is so much need for this right now. It is so easy to forget that!
Sending love to all the Gypsies out there.
