Hello, is that me up there?

What would your highest self do? 

I think it’s important to ask that when we find ourselves judging another person, find ourselves in conflict, or are met with a frustrating obstacle… Or any time you are faced with a choice. 

Our highest self illuminates a situation as is. There is no right or wrong- it just is. Now, once you see the situation for its truth, your highest self will transcend any need to be prideful, any fear, anger or attachment to the situation. You will see the choice to make consciously in order to accept the situation, let go of the desires of your ego and act for the benefit of the whole- not just for yourself.

What may seem righteous or important now seems silly. For we are all one family and every bit of energy in this universe flows through and around each of us. What we do affects the whole. You can choose to love through anything and take the advice of your highest self. 

Each time we ask our highest selves to help us, it moves closer to us until we fully integrate this way of thinking into our subconscious. It soon becomes our default and our ego takes a long overdue snooze. Each time we act from our highest selves, it attracts more closely others who do the same. 

This phase is about going within again. Let go of those patterns which are holding you back. Time is speeding up and cycles are playing out faster and faster. Pick up the pace or get dragged along. It’s entirely your choice. 

Now, ask again, what would your highest self do?

Just Breathe

When clients come to me for a treatment and ask if there’s anything I can give them to work on at home, the number one response I have is “breath work.” I’ll say this and most of the time, the client says it with me… they know. Breath work is SO SO SO important. Think about it. Breath IS life. You take your first breath when you are born, your last when you die and every breath in between is what keeps you alive.

I wanted to be a professional singer growing up and when I started studying energy work, I was shocked to discover that my day would start out pretty much the same way; breath work. I am forever thankful for the years of breathing exercises my voice teachers put me through because it saved my behind in healing school.

When you start to do breath work, a few things usually happen. You get bored, you feel a resistance to breathing, you get dizzy and feel sick to your stomach, or you have an emotional release. All of these things deter people from persevering and breaking down that wall that allows them to fully realize the benefits of breath work.

Breath work can calm mind chatter, reduce blood pressure, calm nerves and anxiety, wake up your chakras and meridians, and so much more. I found that I became more productive throughout the day, slept better, and had a much sharper mind early in the day. I’ve listed a few simple breath exercises below; try a few out for a few days and see if you notice any changes.

Easy breath work techniques: 

1. Alternate nostril breathing:

Take a finger and hold the right side of your nostril closed. Breath in through the left nostril slowly, perhaps on a count to five. Release your finger on your right nostril and breath out. Repeat this about 5-10 times and then switch nostrils and do the series again. This is excellent for balancing left/right brain activity, masculine/feminine energies, clearing mind chatter, reducing anxiety, and obtaining clarity of mind. This ideally should be done at least once a day, but any time you can spare to do it will definitely help.

2. 3rd Chakra Fire Breathing

Lie on your back or sit comfortably with your back straight. Use you diaphragm to quickly take a strong inhalation through your nose and then back out. You will want to make sure your air is fully expelled when you exhale and you will automatically breath in once all air is released. Do this for about 2 or 3 minutes at first and see if you can work your way up to 10. This is excellent for clearing mind chatter, activating your 3rd chakra and revving up personal power.

3. Counted breath

This one is very simple. On a count to 5, breath in slowly. Exhale on a count to 5. Repeat. I would start with a count to 5 and then start challenging yourself to work up to higher numbers. This I find to be the most calming breath exercise. I feel deeply peaceful, calm, and balanced when I do this. Make sure you aren’t breathing shallow. Bring your awareness to the lower lobes of your lungs, the sides of your torso and your heart center. Make sure you are completely filling these areas with air.

4. Liver breathing

The liver holds our anger and can sometimes even hold deep seated grief. If you’re feeling irritable, having pre-menstrual mood swings or discomfort, breast distention, dizziness or maybe even just hung over, try this to stimulate your liver and get some every flowing. Breathe in slowly through your nose until your lungs are full. Try to initiate the breath from the lower abdomen and place your awareness just below your rib cage. Exhale using an open mouthed “haaaaa” and stick your tongue out. This would be the kind of release or exhale you may do to someone after you’ve eaten tons of garlic and want to share your fumes. It’s reminiscent of a dentist’s “say ah,” but more breathy. If you’re having trouble, just think less voice and more breath. The breath is always the most important part.

I have no time to do breath work!

I hear that all the time. Sure you do. When you take a shower, when you sit in traffic, 2 minutes before bed or right before you get out. Once you start to do it, you’ll find time to do it. Everyone starts out somewhere.

Again, breath work is SO important. I can’t stress this enough. The more you do it, the more you realize the potential it has to truly transform you and break down limitations. We exercise our bodies through physical activity, we exercise our minds through learning and communication, breath work is like weight lifting for your spirit.

Quick Quote

“We come from an unknown place and go to an unknown place. These do not concern me. But the trajectory of my life, which I share with this body, does. I want us all to participate in reconstructing the temple, to heal the planet, which is a masterpiece in danger.”

Jean Louis Barrault (the mime in Les Enfants de Paradis)

Metamorphosis

You are an energy being. This has been recognized in many ancient cultures and is again becoming a more widely accepted truth about our universe. We have energy that moves in, around and throughout our physical bodies. Our bodies are weighted by the Earth’s gravitational pull and we feel matter as being solid.

You are becoming a light being. Many people feel this and know this to be true. Some of us have already made major changes while some of us have not. Some of you may be thinking that this is not true and I just ask that you read this with an open mind. Some of us will not change, but may later pass on to be born again as a new child that will already have been born into a light body. This is just one aspect of the shift that is occurring.

I practice vibrational medicine in Seattle, WA. I am sensitive to subtle changes in frequency and am skilled at assessing and manipulating energy flow in, around and through the human body. I can see shifts in frequency as well as hear, smell and sense them. Although I very much love doing healing treatments and helping other people reach their highest potential, I really enjoy talking about what I do and inspiring others to begin their own journey of developing higher sense perception. As we continue along this life on Earth and our dimensional frequencies shift, I want to be of service to those who may have questions about the shift, or are experiencing changes, to help illuminate what I can and make this shift a little more comfortable.

I can’t recall exactly when I experienced the first signs of change because I believe at the time that it happened, I was not aware. Once I began my studies in vibrational medicine, I was consciously working to develop higher sense perceptions. At first I thought everyone could see clearly from their eyeballs all the energy and symbols… I thought I wasn’t developing as quickly. Then, I realized I needed to go within and visualize. I learned the difference between imagining and visualizing and began trusting my intuition. The more I trusted and let go of believing I couldn’t see it, the more I could. Now, I have to remember to turn it off sometimes. It’s difficult to socialize and know that much about a person.

A few weeks ago I started noticing that my mind chatter (although I meditate often and have much less mind chatter than I have had for years past) had decreased. There was a loneliness about it at first and then a friend commented that she had also noticed this. My acupuncturist then told me that we experienced a shift beginning on January 15th and our gravitational pull weakened ever so slightly causing us to lift a fraction further out of density. What does this mean? We became just slightly less solid and in doing so, made an evolutionary step. As lighter beings, our ego is humbled.

Some symptoms you may be feeling during this shift:

Headaches and fatigue- can be caused by processing emotions or energies that are no longer serving you. Remember, time is speeding up and karmic cycles are being played out in rapid pace. Re-evaluate your intentions. Are you acting out of service to others, for the greater good, in balance with how often you choose for yourself?

Nerve pains-  May be connected to solar flares. Try keeping a journal of your body aches and pains and then see if you can detect a pattern between mass ejections and your symptoms. I believe that yoga is a big help for relieving this. We want to get the body moving and distributing energy in a balanced flow.

High Sense Perception- this can be any extra or higher sensory perception. Are you hearing or seeing energy more? Are your sensing feelings from others or picking up on more information that is non-verbal? Are you noticing yourself becoming more sensitive? Try and harness this. It may be difficult to do if you are unfamiliar, but see if you can find a workshop in your area or and energy healer to help you.

Eyes/ Ears- I’m noticing a shift in the lenses of our eyes and our control over the muscles in our eyes and ears. Play around. See if you can direct your hearing or sight on a distinct target and listen or zoom in. Are there physical sensations that accompany this?

Appetite fluctuating- You may find that you are having trouble maintaining a balanced appetite. Lighter beings need less food, but we are still very much grounded in our physical bodies which need a lot of fuel. This can cause us to lose our appetite and then feel very hungry. The healthier, less processed, less modified foods we place into our body, the more stable our appetite will be. If you find yourself eating a lot of processed foods, cut back. We may also be turning to heavier foods to feel more grounded. This light new feeling can be difficult for some depending on where you are in your physical metamorphosis and may be uncomfortable for some at first. Cleanses (nothing too extreme) may be very beneficial during this time. Visiting a nutritionist may also be a good idea if you find yourself struggling.

So what does this all mean? Well, we are evolving. This is a gradual process that for many has already started happening and will continue to happen over the course of the next decade or so. These changes occur faster as we place focus on them and work on expanding our consciousness. Others may not have any knowledge or idea that this is happening and will need the support of those who have already made strides in their transition to aid them in theirs.

Be patient. These changes can be uncomfortable for some and may send emotions running wild and the ego grasping for air. This is where your inner work becomes very important. Take the time to do some meditation and evaluate your intentions. Even if you just have time to do some breath work in the shower- every little bit helps! If you set your intention to shift your focus from a self-centered perspective to the service of others, the Earth and community, and then take a moment to have a few focused breaths or a moment of silence, the power in those brief moments balance the rest of your day. Being present in mind and in the moment is also very important. Be here, prepared to be here, to engage in this moment and nowhere else. Give each moment your full attention and you will notice the sacredness in all that is. You will remember the light that is within you and it will grow.

Forgive and Forget Being Right

We are transcending our need to be right. As we continue our evolution, the need to be right seems about as necessary as the need for a giant billboard advertisement in the middle of the jungle. It’s not that necessary. Being right, although it may feel like a thai massage on the ego, reinforces duality. You are claiming your separateness with pride and rigidity. You are stating YOU are WRONG and I am RIGHT. Me= this, You= that and we are different. My separateness is better and yours, is of lesser quality and the universe desires you less because of it. So there. Stick tongue out, thumbs in ears and big wavy jazzy-moose hands out… neener neener. That’s what being right feels like.

But I KNOW I was right. Yeah, sure you do. You know that your intentions were right or that you really did study that thing in college and totally know what you’re talking about, but what’s being focused on is the ego. It is self-serving.

Moving forward beyond the need to be right is part of our ascension. Moments of friction or disharmony are obstacles we create to teach us this lesson.

The need to be right is grounded is force, not true power. Force is always met with opposition and duality. It removes us from source and is not supportive of life. As our vibrational frequency rises and we transcend the need to be right, power is restored and more universal life energy returns to us. We no longer need to be right, we accept what is for what is and our need to self-serve is replaced with our natural tendency to serve others.

You do not need to agree with whatever is given to you, but you can be accepting and choose to only offer love. When we act on the need to be right, we place limitations on love and in turn limitations on ourselves. You will find when you relieve yourself of the burden to be right, you will discover more freedom. The more you practice this, the lighter you will become. The lighter we become, the further along our evolutionary path we wander and inevitably influence and reinforce this action in others.

Try it out. I learned a powerful lesson in acceptance and forgiveness this weekend. After reflecting on the incident I realized that even though I firmly felt I was right… I was placing limitations on myself by agreeing with my ego that I NEEDED to be right. It really didn’t matter. What mattered was the relationship and the person I was in conflict with. I realized this incident occurred because I had not ingrained this lesson into my subconscious. It takes time. The more we make conscious choices to act for the greatest good instead of personal fulfillment, the patterns in our energy field are reinforced so that this becomes our “default” behavior.

Time is speeding up. Our karmic cycles are moving faster and faster and whatever we are sending out is returning to us in rapid pace. When you find yourself in conflict or disharmony, think back a few days. You may be thinking you don’t deserve what is happening, but ask yourself if there was a time in which you acted in self-service or without integrity. Perhaps there is a lesson in the conflict. We are creators of our own reality and all that we experience outside of ourselves in in direct relation to our intentions and feelings within. Forgiving another person or situation will begin the path of forgiving ourselves, embracing qualities within ourselves that we have rejected and bringing us closer to source.

I hope the next time you find yourself in a situation where the need to be right is tugging on your braids and you recall this post. Take a pause and choose love instead. Value the relationship over the argument and let it go.

Celebrate the inner child

I advocate for silliness. I believe that every person has an inner child that is bursting with uninhibited joy, capable of laughter that is infectious and creativity that knows no bounds. I have a dear friend that exemplified this inner child. Whenever I hear her laugh, I picture baby angels laughing on animal cracker clouds, connected on bouncing sparkling rainbows, surrounded by unicorns.

Not many of us have had the gift of a trauma-free childhood and thinking back to our younger years may seem like a painful reminder of all we did not have. Yet try, for a minute to find a time when you were young, carefree and fully engaged in whatever world you were creating for yourself. I used to think if I played pretend hard enough, I would make my make-believe world my reality. I didn’t realize how smart a statement that really was.

Years go by and disappointments, embarrassing moments in my teens and early twenties, ego-centered behavior kicks in and I forget this. My world is no longer colorful and imaginative, but bland, banal and full of problems. Other people’s problems that make my life difficult. I was so obsessed with myself that I had lost myself. I was not the creator of my world, but rather a victim of it.

Inevitably, more years go by. Finding myself so concerned with what other people think, I really had lost myself. It wasn’t until I went to Burning Man and called out to the universe to show me something! It answered back in a flood of synchronicities that led me to meet the inner child.

My inner child was scared, lonely and insecure. Through journaling from her perspective, playing and showering her with love during meditation, and re-visiting those traumatic events in my life that made my inner child hide away for many years, she started to come out.

Pillow fight! This is why at 28 I hosted a backyard ultimate pillow fight. Creativity flourished and I discovered that I can make art. I remembered how instantly you can become a tiger and growl and play.

A process I’ve come to enjoy as a method for getting in touch with your inner child is a simple meditation. Sit in meditation and perhaps (as some have reported to find it helpful) have a moment of your childhood that you can easily recall and picture vividly in which you were playing, open hearted and free already determined.

Observe yourself playing. When ready, engage in the play with your inner child. What are you playing? Offer love and listen to anything your inner child says. Continue this for whatever time period seems comfortable; 20- 30 minutes should be adequate, but take more time if you need it. When you close, hug your inner child and let them know you are here for them if they ever need you. When parting, if you have dealt with fear of abandonment, you may want to focus on making your inner child feel safe as you leave. Record anything you uncover as you bring your awareness back into the room. As always, make sure you practice keeping safe energetic boundaries and set your intention before going into meditation.

The inner child connects us to joy. Joy is a high state of awareness that knows no judgement. As we focus on raising the consciousness of those around us, focus on areas of our life that bring us joy. Can we create more of them?
