How to Stop Sneaky Self-Sabotage

OH Good Lord! I was out with my kid getting breakfast and I walked into the diner and looked around and I caught the eye of an attractive, age appropriate gentleman sitting in the back booth by himself…and the first thought I had was ‘there is nothing here for you.’

After a year of being home, visiting minimally with family and having meetings via Zoom and other social media platforms, being out and actually meeting new people…well, it has been a while. And being single through this has been a challenge. Having my faith, family and fortitude, I have persevered through maintaining connections using text, email and video calls.

However meeting anyone new stopped being a concern, so I put that on hold. And, it seems that staying in my comfort zone brought up old insecurities and fears. My mental body, unconscious part of me came up with a safety mechanism to keep me from triggering the old pattern of unworthiness: not deserving or able to receive love.

Thoughts that we have like the one I had in that split second of eye contact are unconscious ones. On that day, I realized I had been hearing that phrase in my head every time I was making eye contact with an attractive, age appropriate guy because of my deep seeded self-sabotage around meeting eligible men, being loved, or having any positive emotional experience.

UGH! During this past year, I have done a lot of work becoming conscious and healing this part of myself. I have been working on actually manifesting a new positive relationship experience. Realizing that in the past month, the phrase ‘there isn’t anything for you here’ had been coming up each time I was noticed was frustrating and maddening to say the least.

In being able to observe my thoughts, I caught this new self-sabotaging pattern that was emerging. But, where did it come from? So for me, struggling with self-worth has started very young. I did not feel seen or heard from a very young age and that contributed to my inability to be seen or heard for my gifts and talents as I became an adult. My mission became to help everyone else, make sure everyone else was safe and secure, and to give everything I had to make everyone else’s experience the best it could possibly be. I gave way to much of my energy, resources and myself to others. I became the ultimate people-pleaser.

For someone to see me as anything else is uncomfortable. It triggers my fear of not being good enough, pretty enough, societal standard enough, talented enough, quiet enough, _____________________fill in the blank enough.

Because I have been doing the work, to

Recognize,

Release and

Restore myself over this last three years or so, I have been able to quickly identify when I am back sliding into old behaviors and patterns that no longer serve me. We carry many traumas and dramas that take time and layers to heal. This made me stand up and take notice that I still have work to do in my Unworthiness wound.

  • Staying present
  • Observing your thoughts
  • Being honest about why the thoughts are arising
  • Don’t attach any negative emotion to the thought pattern
  • Let the thought go when it arises

These patterns arise because your ‘ego’ is trying to keep you “safe,” unfortunately, its version of safe is the “same.” Where you have been, what your old patterns have been, not where you are going. Staying conscious and present to your thoughts will help you to keep moving forward and not allowing the self-sabotage to win!

Please look at my past blogs on Recognize, Release and Restore for more information on how I have learned to keep working through healing those parts of ourselves that need it.

And, always my Services tab will provide ways to work with me. Blessings, M xo

Restore: Bringing You into Alignment

What is Restore?

We grew up in a culture of competition to achieve more and better than your neighbor. We were taught to do better than your parents. We were encouraged to learn more, make more, do more than the generation before you or the neighbor beside you. There was very little room for creating, being or listening. All the ways to connect with the more that was inside of you whispering, nudging and guiding you to what made you passionate, happy and whole. It is time.

Stepping into your Magnificence and connecting with your Divinity or Sovereignty is where we are headed in this time of stepping out of the 3D consciousness. The warlike conflicts and competitive energy is receding and through that we are finding new footing. For thoudands of years, we have allowed division and descent rule how we interacted with each other. From monarchy and democracy, we have prescribed to what we were told to do by others. In this new energy, we are allowed to follow the prescriptions of our soul. We have all we need inside of us: love, compassion, and cooperation with all. Not just all people but all living things: the planet, animals and all life.  Restoring the balance between economic systems, political systems, family systems, ecological systems, and all systems on this spaceship Earth; and ultimately how all this affects the Universe. As we are a small part of a much larger system.

What this system is entirely, we still do not understand all of it or the ramifications that our actions have on it. However, we can control our lives, how we treat others and the environment around us. Restoring our balance emotionally, physically, mentally, and ethereally, we can affect and change our own lives. One by one we affect all that is around us. By living as authentically and balanced as we can, then we can ripple that effect out to those around us that are feeling lost, unbalanced, and unhappy with their surroundings. We may feel that we cannot change anything significantly, but if we change ourselves and be the model of harmony, love, and contentment, then we can change our own environment; thereby affecting the whole.

Breaking down any overwhelming task to individual steps allows us to feel accomplishment that allows us to take the next step in that task and in effect accomplishing the seemingly impossible. All we can ever do is work to be better ourselves, and this example will be the model that others will emulate especially when you are winning, achieving, and gaining all that you want in your life experience, right now.  

  1. Work on having balance: mentally, physically, emotionally, and ethereally
  2. Live in love, compassion and harmony
  3. Set boundaries with those who are not willing to make the changes
  4. Be creative, have joy and be passionate with where you spend your energy
  5. Give where and when you can: money, time and energy

This new energy will take time to embrace. For some it will be so uncomfortable. For others it will be a welcome relief. Staying in compassion with all of those around you, will help you to maintain your peace and balance through these changes. The new earth and new human is being created. Blessings, M xo

Taking time to just “be” brings the most clarity and connection from Source.

Beacon of Light

Today is a day of reflection. Only through reflection can we know where we are going. Take time to look at what has been, recognizing, realizing an learning what doesn’t work helps you to know what does. However uncomfortable it may feel that is the way in which to go. Only through discomfort can we grow. Staying comfortable keeps you in sameness. No change. No gain. Be the change for those around you to be able to follow your example. Be the leader for those in you own life –like a pebble in the pond– start the ripple effect. This was a year of profound change. Keep it going –to increase the ripples. To affect more and more people. Some will follow, some will not, but do not stop. Keep striding forward for all to see. Be the beacon of light.

The discomfort is all the ways in which you play small, make yourself small and stay small. It is now time to be seen. Be heard. Allow your magnificence to shine. For most of us shining is uncomfortable. Putting ourselves out there. Revealing our true essence is to be vulnerable. Only through healing our shame, past traumas and hurts that we have held on to like a security blanket of excuses to be small.

This shift of consciousness is not allowing us to play small. These downloads of ascension energy is all about sharing our light. This is hard work, which is why we are called Lightworkers. The ways in which to fully embrace our light is to heal. Heal those parts of you that hold you down. Abraham Hicks gave us the Emotional Scale. Where are you on it? If you are still in fear, grief, powerlessness, criticism and judgement, then you cannot ascend. You must heal those parts of you through forgiveness and gratitude, and that will allow you to ascend…ultimately to live in joy, love and gratitude through compassion for everyone-nirvana.

Will we get there? We are having a human experience with all the trappings of a human condition. Doing our best in every moment will get us there. Learning what our triggers are so that we can heal those parts or ourselves and holding compassion for everyone around us.

This does not mean that we will or can “fix” anyone else. But by being the Beacons of Light and modeling the best versions of ourselves, we can help others. We can show others that they can achieve balance, grace and inner happiness. Letting go of the “ego” in ourselves is so important. Achieving inner happiness, connecting with our Divinity and modeling living in higher consciousness does not make us better, only coming into a version of what a New Human will be.

This is work. This is energy being transformed. Through this process taking time alone, taking time to heal, getting help with the healing as needed will take time. Be gentle with yourself. Let what falls away fall away. Accept what appears. You will transform your tribe, your environment, and yourself through this metamorphosis. It will change you completely. Know that it is supposed to. Where you are going and what you will be focused on will be your journey alone and that is ok. Let those around you be where they are on their journey and know that being the model for them is the best way to help them, even if you have to let them go.

Distracting yourself by running from or ignoring the messages and lessons will only prolong the process by bringing you obstacles and challenges to be overcome that teach a lesson. Your purpose is for you and you will be brought back to it each time you need to be. It is up to you how long you want the metamorphosis to take. Following the inspiration and opportunities that are presented, no matter how uncomfortable, will speed up the process. For some you will need to “bump your nose” more than once to receive the message. It is your choice.

You are the beacon of light. Blessings, M xo

R101: What is Self-Worth?


The sense of one’s own value or worth as a person; self-esteem; self-respect: self-worth as defined by Dictionary.com. Growing up this was not a concept I was familiar with or how impactful it was in my life, the not knowing what it was or how it was affecting me. I was an only child until the age of five. I was abused and neglected from my earliest memory. This would shape every relationship around me by acting one of two ways with people: being quiet or overly pleasing. Everyone liked me this way, but they did not know the real me. I learned to not get noticed by not speaking up and staying in the background, observing but not interacting. In being pleasing, everyone thought I was easy going and solicitous. I learned how to anticipate and fulfill needs so that everyone was happy and taken care of around me. I gave, I did, I was…what everyone wanted me to be: easy, quiet, helpful….never myself.

Internalizing my needs lead me to overeat and be depressed. I had dreams and wanted to be more than I was expected to be or do. I was only supported in what others felt would keep me in their expected realm. Because I had always played it safe and done what they wanted, breaking free and being me was not allowed. And to some extent, I did not know who I was. It would take years of searching and learning all the lessons most learn in their early years of human connection and relationship. I had been busy taking care of others that I had not figured anything out about myself. It would take decades to recoup those lost years of learning who I was and gaining any self-esteem.

I had no concept of self-worth…loving myself. I felt wrong. Never comfortable in my own skin. I was told I was loved. But I never felt it. I had been conditioned very early that my needs were not important and that stayed with me for a long time. That feeling of unworthiness was given to me by damaged parents and those feelings stayed with me and affected all of my decisions for decades. I did not feel respected for any decisions that I made from my support system. All of my life decisions were met with fear and very little support. My partners, my career, or any choice I made was scoffed at or met with minimal support with the fear that I would fail. And somewhere in me, I had internalized these expectations of failure due to the traumas I had experienced that reinforced the feelings of not deserving to achieve. The desire to achieve drove me to trying to reach my goals with everything in me, but always just missing the goal. Losing over and over again relationships, jobs, living situations, and cars; thereby reinforcing for others the idea that my decisions were always the wrong one. Not achieving the safety and security that I craved.

Recognizing were you internalized feelings of inadequacy and unworthiness may take work through therapeutic care, counseling or diving deep in you own story; and some may need past-life regression or some type of energy work to route out traumas that are buried deep in your sub-conscious. I have done all of it and it was through Integrated Energy Therapy that I received the most beneficial healing to my self-worth. Finding the self-love, respect and self-esteem that I never had. This is the hardest and most beneficial work that you can do for yourself. Learning how to love yourself will raise your vibrational frequency in a way that will begin you interacting in the Universe in a profound way. And, this will not allow you to spiral back to old patterns that kept you playing small or choosing situations that will hurt you.

You become part of the matrix of the Divine, God-Consciousness that is available to all. Manifesting your desires and achieving your goals, being happy is why we are here on planet Earth, to be happy and have a joy filled experience. Loving yourself for your talents and gifts takes healing and releasing any guilt associated with doing for yourself. Let go and let God. Be happy. Looks so different on the other side of trauma. I pray you get here. Blessings, M xo

R101: The “F” Word Explained

We talk a lot about healing our wounds. Letting things go. Walking away. Forgetting the past. But let us be honest, it is NOT that easy. Relationships are messy on a good day, and on a bad day, it takes on a whole new meaning when any one of these things are said to you. Not helping, or as my kid would say, “not ta-daey!”

The absolute lowest that we can feel is fear, guilt, shame, unworthiness, despair and powerlessness. These are deep seeded emotions, usually old, given to us before the age of five now residing in our Solar Plexus chakra and others and rooted in our subconscious affecting all of our current decision making, whether we realize it or not. And for most of us, we do NOT. We have conditioned ourselves by these old beliefs to keep ourselves protected (ego).

Self-sabotaging our loves, jobs, friendships, and more. By believing that we are not good enough or do not deserve at our core, keeps us playing ‘small’ not taking the Leap of Faith every time it is presented because we are convinced we will fail. And, we fail. It can be no other way. If you believe that you can’t, then you can’t. However, if you believe you can, then you CAN.

How do you get there? That is where the “F” word comes in. Forgiveness: letting go of the past decisions, relationships and situations that are holding you back because you are actively holding on to wanting things to be different. Your memory plays tricks on you, especially when you are holding on to woulda, coulda, shoulda scenarios that you play over and over in your mind. Or, you are suppressing the feelings because they are to painful to bring out into the light of day to be examined. When we have experienced a traumatic incident: abuse or neglect in some way, our psyche tries to protect us by pushing “it” down. However, in both these situation, it will resurface at some point in your life to be recognized and released.

Recognizing “it” means looking closely at the suppressed memory, person, situation that has made you feel bad in some way. This is the painful part because to truly see someone or a situation as hurtful as it was can be traumatic in its own way because you also become self-aware in the part that you played in allowing it to continue or allowing it to stay hidden. This is the releasing.

Releasing through forgiving yourself for whatever part you played, or anyone else who negatively impacted your situation. Also, recognizing that we all are doing the best we can in the moment. And forgiving you and them for making the decisions that they made at the time that they made them. And this releases you!

You get to begin new. With new situations, new people, new relationship with yourself first and then others. Becoming self-aware helps you to heal yourself. And this healing will transform you. And this healing will raise your vibrational frequency. Raising your vibrational frequency will draw new higher vibrational relationships and situations into your life without you having to search for a thing. And, this new found compassion will allow you to help relationships and situations around you to be better as a result.

Another result is that the lower vibrational situations and relationships will fall away, helping you to not stay in the pattern of self-sabotage that you have help previously. This takes time. Time to recognize and release. Time to love yourself. Time to heal.

R101: What is Discernment?

Acuteness of judgement or understanding is how dictionary.com defines discernment. And I can honestly say, I did not use this word until about a year ago on a regular basis. Being extremely sensitive to the people, situations and thought patterns in my life was not something I did. However, as we become more self-aware to heal, this concept becomes very important, indeed.

We have to acutely judge:

  1. where we spend out time
  2. who we spend out time with
  3. what we think: negatively, positively
  4. our thought patterns
  5. what is important to us
  6. who is beneficial in our lives vs. who is not
  7. why we do the things we do
  8. why we allow situations to continue
  9. how we interact with people: to pleasing or to critical
  10. how we feel about ourselves vs. others
  11. how we allow people and situations to continue: good or bad
  12. when it is time to end a situation or a relationship
  13. when it is time to fight for a situation or a relationship

And many more….as you become aware of what has lead you into a Desperate Despair situation, you will have to learn how to be discerning as you move forward as to not repeat old patterns and self-sabotaging ways.

Self-awareness leads to trusting yourself to make the best decision every time.

The second way in which “discerning” came into my awareness was in my connection to Spirit or psychic ability. Was I hearing, feeling, knowing what Spirit was bringing me or was I allowing my Ego self-talk to influence me?

When we are letting our fears dictate our emotions and actions that is when we are fighting to have or receive the things we want and our thoughts run away with negative self-talk and self-sabotaging actions. The ego is always going to keep you “playing small” or in your comfort zone. The easy choice.

Spirit’s message, knowing you know, but not how you know, or hearing a thought, or having a feeling about a situation or person/relationship that comes from the heart is the message from spirit. It is subtle and can be missed, ignored or pushed aside because it is subtle and the fear-based thought is easier.

Spirit is ALWAYS bringing you to what is for you. Not the easy choice. Always the choice that will lead out of your comfort zone that feels exciting with a hint of scary. Being discerning in this instance will help you to know the difference. Take your time and practice with the little messages at first. The more you show spirit that you trust and act on their guidance the more they will give you, and it will be on bigger Leaps of Faith or inspiration for your life purpose.

More to come.

Desperate Despair

At one time or another, we all fall down. Something in our life falls apart. We lose a relationship that we thought would go the distance. We lose a job that was our dream job. We lose our home. We lose our car. Any one of these scenarios feels catastrophic of an event that we have to recover from.

Finding love is hard, finding that one person who you find a connection with is hard and when you do it is the most magical feeling in the world. Having your dream job gives you safety and stability that allows you to have a foundation on where you can build all the other parts of your life. Having your own transportation gives you freedom and independence that allows you to go and do whatever you want, whenever you want. All of these are things that we all strive to have. We work really hard to achieve. These are the foundational principals of a happy life. So, the loss of anyone of these things really affects you on a physical, emotional, energetic or ethereal, and mental levels, changing your vibrational frequency because the loss of one of these things makes you fearful on some level for your survival.

So, when you lose all of these things in the same time frame, this can bring you to desperate despair. The feeling of not being safe and afraid for your safety and survival. Knowing that in some way all of your choices have lead to this point. Realizing that you have affected your own situation so negatively that you are at ground zero: homeless, jobless and carless. How do you recover? And you ask yourself this honestly because you know that to make the same decisions or go the same way as you have will get you similar results. You have let yourself down in the most fundamental ways, so how do you trust yourself and your decision making from here?

This is where you have to become self-aware. Becoming aware or yourself and WHY you have made the decisions that you have. What has lead you to this place of Desperate Despair? Even if you only had experienced one or two of these scenarios or something similar, you have to look within to find the cause. It is only there will you find the way to heal those parts of yourself that will allow the catalyst for change to take place and allow things to be different: positive.

Have you been in denial for a very long time of those hurts, traumas and abuses that have propelled you to engage in self-sabotaging ways? Addiction, denial, people pleasing, unworthiness, abusive relationship or toxic people in key roles in your life, health issues, etc. and all of these ways can look very different for everyone, but you have to get very honest with yourself before you can ever start to heal. And heal you must! It is the only way to have something different, positive and sustainable.

How? One step at a time. One wound at a time. Some may need therapeutic care, counseling, or physician’s help. Some may need to unpack their emotional bodies one step at a time through journaling and reading helpful guides: self-help or inspirational books. Sound healing and energy work can help. There are many modalities of help for the healing. But none of it will work if you are not getting clear on what is holding you back.

Desperate Despair is a HUGE motivator for change. And by making the changes, starting the process you are coming into alignment with your Divinity. The God inside you. We are being brought to our knees in some way at this time to be the catalyst that we need to change our lives. To change our relationship with each other and the planet. Going forward the old ways of being and doing will not work. We have to do better because now we know better–Maya Angelou said it so eloquently all those years ago.

We are waking up. Waking up to who and what we are: spiritual beings in a human condition. More and more of us are getting in touch with our spiritualness and it is beautiful. But it is a transforming energy and way of life. As you go down your path you will be brought to new awareness and connection. Do not despair because it is for you.

Take it one day at a time and know that as hard is it is to unpack and heal your wounds. It is the most beneficial thing you can do for yourself and those you love to become the best version of this 3demensional self and gain access to your 5demensional self by raising your vibrational frequency.

R101: Spiritual Body

Everyone has some type of relationship with the idea of something more. Some do not believe at all that there is something more. Some are on the fence. Some keep the idea open just in case. Some believe through faith and hold on to religious beliefs and it is ok with where ever you are at with your beliefs. Spirituality is connection to the source of All that Is. However, as human beings we have free will choice and if you don’t invite Spirit into your life, then you won’t have the connection.

There is nothing to be afraid of. In many instances when I sit with people who are not familiar with a Spirit in their lives as a real experience, they are fearful of what I might tell them or say in communication with Spirit. However, there is nothing to fear as only Love comes through. Spirit is all about helping us be better and do better. And, your loved one’s coming through only want to reassure you that all is well with them and that you are loved and just as loved and if not more as now they are on the other side in communion with the pure source energy of Love.

Opening up to intuition, Source or your ‘gut instinct’ is becoming aligned with spirituality in whatever form that you are comfortable with. Unlike religion, there is no one size fits all. This is your unique experience. Reading spiritual books and teachers that resonate with you will help you on your path. But, the real connection comes with your own spiritual practice.

A spiritual practice looks however you want it to. The key is to meditate. And, meditation can also be whatever you want it to be. Sitting quietly for ten to fifteen minutes: in nature, your favorite chair or lying down. Walking, daydreaming and rhythmic actions where your mind can wander freely are all ways in which you may be already meditating. Guided meditations are another way in which you can intentionally begin a meditation practice. YouTube has many to choose from and I would just pick the one that you like, resonates with you in some way or you are drawn to.

Opening your connection is opening your Crown Chakra which is an energy center that is connected to your pineal gland activating your spiritual center in your body. Meditation is the way in which to open and strengthen your connection to Source, your guides, guardian angels or however you believe. No way is better than another. Each journey is unique to the individual. I don’t want you to think that you can get this wrong. Always ask for whatever you desire the connection to be. They are waiting for you to connect and invite them into your existence. They will not intrude on your human experience. It is a beautiful and special connection that you must ask for.

I would encourage you to keep a journal of your meditations. It will be helpful to be able to remember, reference your experiences and recognize the messages for you.

More to come.

R101: Healing the Emotions

Many people ask me what is Shadow work? How do I know if I need to do it? Why do I need to do it? What if I don’t do it? Shadow work is looking at the dark parts of yourself, the parts that we like to stuff down or ignore. Unfortunately, your emotional body does not go away. You can ignore and distract yourself from the hurts and traumas that you have gone through and are going through, and that will only perpetuate what you will go through in the future.

Not recognizing why you make your decisions. Not being aware of why you put yourself in situations. Not looking to closely at the cycles and patterns that your decision making is creating in your life will keep you making the same decisions, creating the same outcomes; even though you are expecting a different outcome each new time. The definition of chaos. How do we stop the chaos?

Shadow work is recognizing and healing that part of you that keeps you from moving forward in your life in a positive, productive way. It is work that you do alone. It is hard work, painful work, emotional work, and the best thing that you can do for yourself and those around you that love you and that you love.

Eckhart Tolle calls this aspect of yourself your ‘pain body.’ Your emotional body where you store all the pain. Which affects the lens that you feel all of the emotional energy that comes at you from those who love or want to love you. If you feel unworthy, then you will be suspicious of anyone who is trying to do, be or give you nice things, especially love in any form. If you feel bad, then you will never accept anything as good in your life. And, so on and so on.

Healing your emotional body takes two parts: recognizing and forgiving.

Getting real with yourself about what you are not allowing yourself to feel will reveal what is in your ‘pain body.’ Journal: write out the story of each of your relationships, including yourself. What theme or repeated pattern do you see?

Recognizing your decision making and the how and why you make them will reveal where you need to heal.

Forgive the other person, forgive the situation, or forgive yourself. And, I like to think of forgiveness as accepting that the best decision was made at the time that it happened and move on.

It might have been a really horrible decision with catastrophic consequences for your life, but at the time the person or situation was the best that could be done for whatever reason. And, you may never know the reason. Acceptance of what went down and by whom is all you can do to move you forward toward receiving the best possible outcome in you life now.

Holding onto old hurts only keeps you from realizing your best life now!

More to come.

The Shift: part II

This has been a hell of a year. 2020 has blown up! We have seen social unrest and personal chaos. This is not the end of the changes. There are more to come. From political reform to how we make money going forward. Paradigms are shifting. We are seeing large institutions decline and many large businesses retool themselves to be competitive in this new market. The industrial age is over and the technological advancements are bigger than we even know with new technologies that can take over human manufacturing, driving and preforming expediential calculations. We are not needed as a work force in the same way and we will not go back to that way. So, this idea of getting back to normal is ludicrous. The technology exists to operate any machine and the energy source has been discovered to power whatever we need for longer than we can describe. As we move forward more and more of these advances are going to be revealed. And we have to be prepared.

Financial institutions, big companies and conglomerates are going to be phased out with smaller entrepreneurs being the new norm. We are seeing the emergence of this already as people open on-line businesses at a rate never seen before. People are discovering farming and gardening. We are becoming more Earth conscious. We are seeing a resurgence of togetherness, compassion and empathy for all. Getting back to the neighbor helping neighbor model of the 19th century and before. Somewhere in the Industrial age we became all about consumerism, competition and greed. Ego-centric to our own kind, family, business, job or group. Eliminating the need to have higher consciousness if we were competing and feeling like we were maintaining or winning, then that was all that mattered. We saw the decline of the church, religion, and spirituality.

We are moving into an age of higher-consciousness as the consumer culture deadened our spirit. Now, our spirit is rising to show us the way to open us all up to the more we have been diminishing for a century. We are seeking connection, like never before, with something more that is outside of ourselves but apart of all of us. Intuition and gut instinct is the beginning of recognizing that we all are equipped to lead our lives on the path that is for us in connection to everyone and everything. We are here to be of service to the Earth and each other in whatever form that takes for you. This is the shift we are all making in our individual ways.

Getting into connection with our higher-consciousness takes practice. Leaning into the idea that we have no real control. We have a path and can make decisions about which way to go; however, we will always be brought back to our individual journey through lessons when we go against our instinct. Our instinct is our guiding force, but it is a feeling and we are inclined to follow our thoughts.

Following our thoughts is allowing the fear of the unknown to direct us off our path. Allowing the thoughts to arise and let them go will allow you to connect with the feelings. The emotion from our soul is the path that will lead us on our way. Our way is unique to us and not all will be allowed to come with us. Surrendering to the ebb and flow of the events and people in your life will, also allow you to gain what you need when you need to and leave what you do not.

This higher-consciousness connection will raise your frequency or vibration in the Universe allowing the people, events and things to flow to you. When you fight the way, you block yourself from having what it is that you desire. This way of being will bring you into resonance with everything and everyone around you putting you in the place that is for you.

1. Letting go of what you think life should be for you is paramount.

2. Being open minded about the inspiration and feelings that are trying to guide you will be incredibly life altering.

This is the shift.
