With all that’s going on in the world currently around Corona, there is a lot of fear and worry in our personal and collective energy systems. And getting caught up in this fear can negatively effect the strength of our immune systems, and ultimately make us sick, if held for too long. So to recenter us back in wellbeing, I wanted to lead you through a guided meditation to help release fear from your energy field, and recenter your energy back in wellbeing. This meditation is both healing and transformative yourself, and for the planet. Try it, and see if you don’t feel better by the end.
FYI: I got the Tibetan singing bowl I’m using in this meditation from Shanti Bowl. Check them out if you’d like to purchase one for yourself. I love the audible vibration it emits. ❤️
5 Spiritual and Healing Lessons from The Corona Virus
Recently, with the current pandemic happening around the world, and many people having to shelter-in-place, I’ve been getting a lot of questions regarding what my thoughts on this pandemic are, and what it means for each of us. I’ve been getting a lot of downloads around this, and been doing a lot of around introspection what the deeper lessons are, so I decided to share five spiritual and healing lessons that have been coming up around the virus and pandemic, and how understanding these lessons will lead us to a greater sense of healing and wellbeing in our personal lives, and around the world. Enjoy! ❤️
Earlier this month I turned 41, and I’ve been thinking a lot about what this new year of life needs from me in order to live a more well + delicious life. One that is truly healthy for my body + energy, one that tastes really good to my senses to be within.
Because more than anything, this is the kind of life I want for myself: a well + delicious one.
It is the only type of life I want for myself.
And what I’ve been feeling in my gut is that what my life most wants from me this year to become more well + delicious is a deeper dive into rest and pleasure.
Before my healing journey, I was never too successful at experiencing either. I wasn’t good at getting a lot of rest, and I wasn’t good at getting a lot of pleasure, either. I didn’t even know that both were truly possible, to be honest, nor what they would even look like if they were.
This idea that rest and pleasure are foundations on which we can build our lives, on which we can build our dreams, that they can be our support systems to fall back on in times of success and in times of failure was a revelation to me. The idea that my life can feel good and easy, that it can be immensely delightful, and not also burn out my nervous system. That it can be based on, and grounded in, just feeling good. Wow. A revolution.
If there is one thing that my healing journey has taught me it is this: “That our lives are not supposed to prisons; they are supposed to be sanctuaries.”
That our lives are not supposed to be things that we are trying hard to run away from, but things we are supposed to be find more and more ways to dive deeper into. To find solace in. To get joy, and safety, and wellness from. And in my heart, I know rest and pleasure are big parts of that sanctuary. That they are the very alters in which that sanctuary builds itself around, the ones we are meant to make sacred pilgrimage to and lay our burdens as offerings before, so that we may be deeply blessed.
Rest and pleasure are home.
I am being called to experience them in a deeper way now. Not just to have them in the margins of my life, but to realize that the only place they belong is as the whole page. That I must write the story of my life upon them. That I must write the story of my life with them. They are the page, and the pen.
I learned from my master teachers, AIDS and kidney failure, that pleasure and rest are medicines + needs. Like good food and water, I need them in regular daily doses to be healthy and function at my best.
And the two types of pleasure I’m being called most to right now are writing + sex. I get such delight from them both. I feel so alive when I’m writing. The act of sharing what’s in my heart and mind through writing brings me such a deep amount of joy that it’s hard to describe in words. But the closest I can come to it is: writing makes me feel like I’m feeding my soul something delicious/nutritious. And I also feel that way when I’m having sex. I feel alive, connected, and like I’m feeding my soul something that it enjoys, and helps it grow.
And to be honest, I haven’t been doing enough of either: writing, or sex. And being further honest, I haven’t been doing one of those at all (I’ll leave it to you to figure out which one).
Rest, sex and writing have been calling me deep. Almost like I’m being asked to drown my whole life in their waters.
So this new year of my being is going to be saturated with them. Going to be guided by them. Going to be taught by them.
I’m looking forward to what I may learn from them. How I heal from them. What I become because of them.
What I already know is that I’ll be happier + healthier.
Last week, I saw a video by Anita Moorjani where she mentioned the term: “thought virus.” And immediately, I deeply resonated with the term, and recognized the principle as it related to my own healing journey from AIDS and kidney failure, and the healing work I’ve done with my clients. So much so, I was inspired to do this video in order to go a bit more in depth about what thought viruses actually are, and why they are so detrimental the the health of our bodies, and the wellbeing of our lives. I also share what the purpose of our life experience is from the soul’s perspective, why not feeling “enough” is so dangerous, and how the law of attraction manifests our reality. Enjoy!
I was working with a new client yesterday who came to me for help with his healing journey from stage four cancer. HIs doctor’s had given him two years to live.
When we first connected during the session, he told me: “I guess I’m here to see if I’m really ready to die.”
And when I used my intuitive abilities to connect in with the energy of his Soul to see if indeed he was ready, his Soul asked a very different question: “Are you really ready to live?”
No matter how many clients I’ve worked with over the years who’ve come to me for healing help, this seems to be the main question that arises from the illness: not “are you prepared to die?” but “are you prepared to truly live?”
What my own healing has taught me, and what I’ve learned through helping people around the world heal, is that illness/disease isn’t a punishment by The Universe, or a betrayal by our bodies, but a wake-up call. It’s the message that our bodies send us that we’ve reached the point where we’re too tired of the life we’re living. Not because Life isn’t delicious to our Soul, but that this lifestyle isn’t. It’s that the way we’ve been living is depleting us of our joy because it’s not based on who we are, somehow, and the illness shows up as an opportunity to stop living the life we truly don’t want, and start living the one we truly do.
To stop living based on responsibility, obligation, and approval, and start living focusing on what authentically makes us happy, what authentically breathes life through us, what we authentically want to do and be.
When a “terminal” illness shows up in our body, in most cases, it’s not that we’re ready to die, but that we’re ready for this lifestyle, as we know it, to end.
So the path of healing “terminal” illness/disease isn’t about drinking the green juice, or switching over to the alkaline vegan diet (thought these things can help), but it’s about making the courageous choice to finally stop living the lifestyle that drains us of joy, and disconnects us from our authentic self, and start creating/living a lifestyle that nourishes and charges who we really are. A life of joy that literally breathes Life Force through us, instead of takes it away.
A life that feels and tastes good to us.
A life that our bodies would love to live.
No matter who we are or what diagnosis we have, my work and my own journey has shown me that healing is possible. Always.
Because healing is about returning ourselves to our Authentic Self, and the life of joy that our soul came here for.
And that’s what most of my healing work with clients is all about: helping them return home to who they truly are, and the life that truly nourishes them.
And the real healing questions is: Are we willing to do what it takes to heal? Are we willing to truly let go of how we used to live, how we used to think, how we used to make choices, and begin instead to solely live, think and make choices based on love and joy. On what truly feels and tastes good to us.
Because this is the medicine that heals.
This is the very purpose for why we incarnated here: to feel good, to live a life of joy, to be who we truly are.
So illness isn’t a punishment, no matter what type of illness it is, no matter the severity of it. It is an invitation – to come back home to who you truly are, and to a life that you truly deserve: one that feels and tastes delicious.
I’m deeply excited about the opportunity to help my client do this.
One of the most transformational exercises I learned to do in my healing journey is write three appreciation lists, everyday. Not only did writing these lists help me feel better emotionally/vibrationally, but they also helped positively transform my life, and manifest my dreams.
The more I wrote these lists, the more I began to notice positive transformations happening in my health, and the more I noticed things I’d been desiring starting to manifest in my life. And often times, miraculously so. From my dream car, sexy dates, unexpected money, and business opportunities, to illnesses in my body starting to miraculously heal on their own, without me taking any conscious action to heal them. The more I wrote these lists, the better my life became.
Now, energetically there’s a reason for this. The practice of appreciation makes us feel better emotionally, which raises our frequency. The frequency we feel when we are appreciating something is very close energetically to the frequency of Love. So, the more we practice appreciation, the more we flow our bodies with the sensation of Love (basically, we feel really good). And by the Law of Attraction, the better we feel emotionally and the higher frequency/vibration we embody, the better things we manifest in our lives, and the better the state of our health becomes.
Plus, what we focus on, we get more of. Not necessarily the item itself, but the feeling of the item – the vibrational essence of it So the more we focus on what we appreciate, the more we manifest things to feel apprecation about in our lives.
Quick note: Vibrationally, appreciation is a bit different than gratitude. Gratitude is mostly taking stock of what we’re thankful for. But appreciation is taking stock of what’s really good in and about our lives, what brings us a sense of joy, and what we truly love about ourselves, and our lives. It’s a slightly higher vibration than gratitude itself, as it’s similar to looking at something from perspective of Love.
Plainly put, appreciation is a doorway to feeling and living better.
So here are the three appreciation lists I write daily. Try them yourself.
1. Things in the present that I appreciate.
This is about taking stock of what’s going well in my life right now, today. What are the things in my life that bring me joy, what makes me feel good, what’s in my life now that I really love? Remember, the more we focus on what’s going well in our lives now, the more we manifest more things to do the same.
I list out five of these things, every day. I write down what is I appreciate, AND why I appreciate it. And I make sure to make AT LEAST TWO of these items about myself. Writing the why really elevates the feeling of appreciation in my energy field.
Ex. I truly appreciate/love the relationship I have with my mom. We are such good friends now, we frequently take trips together, we go out to eat weekly, we laugh a lot together, and I truly enjoy her company. I feel good around her and feel loved by her. PLUS, she honors my boundaries now, and really listens to me. I truly love our relationship.
2. Things in the future that I appreciate, written in present tense.
This list is about feeling advance appreciation for things that I want, but have yet to come. One of the biggest secrets to manifesting what you want is to feel good now, as if it has already manifested. Holding the feeling of appreciation in the now actually attracts it to you faster. This list helps you do just that. Plus, even if it never comes, you feel good now, anyway. And feeling good is the main soul purpose of our lives.
Same as the list before, write five things and why you appreciate them.
Ex. I love how healthy my body is now. I feel so free and strong and alive in my body. I feel like a miracle, and I’m able to live my life like I want, and do all the things I truly enjoy. I feel such freedom and vibrancy in my body and I freaking LOVE it!
3. Things that I appreciate that have worked out well for me, but previously used to make me upset.
This list is really important. It’s about things in your past you’d previously felt stressed, angry, sad or fearful about, but have actually worked out in your favor in your present. This list helps you remember that things can work out for you, and recognize just how frequently they do.
Ex. I love how much I listen to and trust myself these days. I truly take time to hear my own inner guidance and follow it, even if it goes against what an authority figure wants me to do. I feel so safe with myself because of this these days. And I’m so much less stressed and afraid. I’ve come a long way, and I love it.
Try writing these lists for yourself.
Do them for 30 consecutive days, and take notice of how you feel, and what positive changes/transformations occur in your life. I’ve seen this one thing work miracles in my own life, and in many of my clients’ lives as well.
Remember, the law of this Universe is: “The better you feel, the better you live.“
This appreciation exercise will help you feel better.
