Being human is the new spiritual practice

Hey there VIP,

Well... aren't these some tumultuous times?

So much going on in the world on many levels. So. Much.
On personal levels, on community levels, cultural, political, environmental, global and on and on.

Obviously it's important for us to stay centered, grounded and spiritual... but what does that mean when there is SO much going on?
What does that feel like when there is so much hate, negativity, intense energies?
What does that feel like in our body?
What spiritual practices can we use from our tool box?

Will reiki help? What about a healing crystal? Which one gets us back into balance, flow and harmony?

What if the answer is to check yourself.
What if the answer is to go within.
What if the answer is to not do anything, but feel all the feels?

What if it's about fully experiencing this human experience and not trying to transmute it with spiritual practices from our tool box?
All of the emotions, all of the experiences, all of the shadow.

Be present with it.
Stop fighting it. Allow it to be.
Take a deep breath and accept it. Accept that this is the reality of this moment.
Accept that this is where you're at. Where we're at.
Accept the fact that there is suffering in this moment.

Acceptance isn't complacency. Acceptance doesn't contribute to it.
It allows you to stop resisting the present moment. It allows you to be fully present (and stop trying to escape your body & this experience) so you can become aware and know what you feel so you then can connect and get the messages for what to do next.

And then and only after we fully accept it, we ask it what it's here to show us.
What is our next indicated step?

But make no mistake, VIP, if we continue to try and resist the present moment, and aren't willing to accept what our reality is - whatever it is that's weighing us down, keeping us up at night, or keeping us from being connected with our soul's truth, it will continue to come up.

So, let me give you permission right now.
You have permission to experience this human experience fully. All. of. it.
All of the light, darkness, anger, fear, joy, happiness, contracting energies, expansive energies, and more!

From finances, to work, to relationships, to birth, to death, to connecting with your 'purpose', to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health, making mistakes, trying new things and more! It's ALL a part of it!

Being fully human IS our spiritual practice.

It is what we came here to do. It's why our soul chose this human experience. For our soul growth. As a reminder of our truth.

That is all, VIP.

Know that I am here with you. Practicing my spiritual practice; fully human.

Wishing you feelings of support, truth and love,

VIP days are a sacred time where we get to work together in a nurturing, nourishing, sacred healing capacity.

Also, if you're needing a payment plan, let me know. I am able to do that as well.

Dear Luminary,

Dear luminary,

Why do I call you a luminary, VIP?
Because I know you. You are shining the light on the darkness. You are passionate about justice.
Your desire starts with and goes beyond everyone on this planet having their basic needs and rights be met.
It also goes further, desiring all creatures to be loved, honored, embraced and celebrated.

You also have learned that you are willing to have the hard conversations.
You're willing to learn how to have them.
You're willing to do them imperfectly because you know it's the right thing to do.

It's important to connect with your fiery anger within.
It's just as important to harness that and let it fuel your connection with others.

You tend to be the one sparking new concepts in your circles,
igniting new perspectives,
and seeing the light in others.

This is why you are a luminary.

No matter what kind of work you get paid for right now, you continue to show up
For yourself,
For your people,
For our world.

You are moving us forward.
You are elevating our conscious collective.

Yes, these are dark times we're experiencing.
These are the times where we get to honor the moon, stars and planets that are shining in the darkness.
These are the times where we get to hold the candle and feel our way through new pathways.
These are the times where the glow of the embers are keeping us warm.

And this is also why it's vital (think vital signs) for us to come together.
To have our tribe. To lean on our people. To reach out and connect with new folx who become our people.
As we come together our individual candles start to light up the world.

And we must balance as best we can.
So we do not to burn out.
Or start a wildfire.

So yes, YOU are a luminary.

And together we got this. We carry the evolution within our hearts. The fire in our bellies.

Today, of all days, the day after Winter Solstice - the longest night and shortest day of the year - where many cultures for centuries have ushered in the light, welcoming it back to continue blessing the Earth with it's light and warmth.

Shine on, luminary,

From Powerless to Empowered

"What more can I do??"
I was doing personal growth work, reading books, incorporating and integrating concepts, attending to my physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs and there was still something missing.
Something I didn't really know what it was.
But I knew that I wanted to be able to take things to the next level.
I just didn't know how, who, where, what - you know, the logistics.
And then... I got sick.
Not in-the-hospital kind of sick, but the I'm in bed trying to nip it in the bud before it becomes full blown... again, kind of sick.
I realized that this had been happening repeatedly, nearly once a month.
I was frustrated because I would run myself down trying to do everything for everyone. Be the best I could be at my job, in my relationships and that left very little time for tending to my energetic needs. In which my physical body would stop me and slow me down.
So, this time, for whatever reason, I decided to check in. Like really check in. And see what I was being guided to do.
And that's when I found Craigslist's Community Classes section. (I bet you were thinking I found something else, right?)
Well, let's just say, this area changed the entire course of my life.
Why? This is where I found my very first Reiki class.
Sometimes we are led to things in the most random places. But what I know now is that it's not random, it's divinely orchestrated. How fun is that?
Ever since I have taken my first Reiki class I have felt the most empowered in my life, ever.
If I have an issue with feeling stuck, I do Reiki.
If I am experiencing some conflict in my relationships, I offer Reiki.
If someone is in hospice and working on transitioning to the other plane, I offer Reiki.
When I am traveling, when I feel nervous or anxious, when I am having old childhood issues coming up, I offer Reiki.
You see, Reiki doesn't just address the physical ailments that we experience.
It works on all levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
It works in my daily life. That's why I talk about #everydayreiki.
We use it with our pets, the kiddos in our lives, on ourselves, on each other, with food and even when giving presentations in our work.
Learning Reiki and becoming attuned to the Reiki energies raised my vibrations, helped me feel more empowered and connected to Spirit, and helped me to feel more empowered in the most powerless feeling of situations.
Because of the raising frequencies of our planet many people who are sensitive to others' energies are feeling this shifts on some level. If you are one of these people, if you know that you are sensitive to energies, if you know that you are able to feel others' pain, taking Reiki is where you can harness these gifts and know you can do something rather than letting them to continue to control you and your experiences.

If this resonates with you, I invite you to check out our Fall 2017 Online Reiki Course. Doors close tonight for registration. And we even have payment plans and you can get in with as little as $125/mo!
We're here for you. To support you. To share with you about our experiences. So that you can continue to shine bright and be the luminary of this world.

Registration ends tonight at 11:59pm MDT (Mountain time). And this is our final time offering the Reiki Course live this year. You can join us during the live classes or you can take your time and make sure that you complete all the courses before May 31st, 2018. It's up to you and all that is going on in your life. 

Check out the page with all the details, bonuses and experiences of others.

Here's to you, VIP. Here's to you feeling empowered energetically. Here's to you having more tools in your toolbox to continue on in this world in a thriving way. Here's to you matching the raising vibrations and feeling so much joy around it.

Know that I am here wishing you the very best in all that you're experiencing.

Vibrant blessings,
