I used to wonder if life simply meant getting comfortable with overwhelm and the need to overcome yet another challenge, I hear it from my clients almost on the daily, how hard life really can be. We do our best to stay positive in the face of challenges, but sometimes we need a little extra support.
My own health and mental crisis is actually what set me on my path of discovering shamanic wisdom and energy medicine, seeking answers that western medicine just didn't have for me or my clients anymore.
After facing a near death experience with the birth of my son, a scary Cancer diagnosis, two Autoimmune Diseases, Anxiety, PMS and Obesity, I was a hot mess and desperate for answers.
I was done with the pain and traditional Western Medicine's bandaids and the therapy that just wasn't working anymore. I wanted to get to the real root of my suffering and transform it to something much more life giving and empowering.
Ultimately great challenges are an...
If there ever was an urgent time to stand in your power, and do what you came there to do, it is now.
The mental illness in our country is at an all time high and it is destroying our children, our health, our relationships and frankly Mother Earth.
There is a real urgency for change, for all of us to stand in our own essence and begin anew. Great medicine men and women all over the world are calling for each of us to become, "The one you are waiting for," rather than wait for a savior, a pill, or someone else to do something about it, step into your own power to heal and do something different.
As a society we know change is vital, we see our children's safety being threatened, we feel the unrest deep within our soul, and know something needs to be done.
Physics teaches us that all action has a reaction, and if the majority of us remember who we truly are and step into real power, the scales can begin to tip back into our favor, and...
I got the call from our fifteen year old daughter, "Have you heard from Dad, he was supposed to pick me up and he didn't show up." My stomach began to twist into knots, my husband was not the kind of man who didn't show up for our kids.
A bit of paralysis, a feeling in my stomach, a tightness in my chest, I had to force myself to breath...
The phone range again, this time my oldest daughter, "I can't find dad, where is dad,", she was getting in the car to go look for him. Twenty minutes later I get the call of her screaming in a panic.
A numbness began to take over, "Are you sure, how do you know!!" Then the Officer gets on the phone, "Mrs. Lewis is your husband a Sergeant with the City of Riverside Police Department, I'm sorry there is no easy way to tell you this." My daughter Kayla, screaming, it's dad, it's dad, I can see him, it's dad!"
Powerlessness, fear, rage....How is this even happening?
NO, it's not supposed to happen like this!
He was the one who was supposed to be...
Death, we've all experienced it.
It comes in many forms, the loss of a loved one, the death of a marriage, a home, a family, a four legged friend or job.
My family and I suffered a tragic loss over the Summer, my husband of eighteen years was killed in a motorcycle accident, and with him was the death of who I thought I was and what my future would hold.
I share with you, my heart filled with compassion and understanding as you may be learning to navigate through your own transitions, some abrupt in nature, some more gradual.
Life is filled with many cycles of death, some more difficult than others.
Today I want to send you feelings of peace and trust and a reminder that you are not alone, you are seen and understood, loved by a source much greater than your own understanding - and it is supporting you on your soul's journey and purpose for this life.
There are times when you may have been filled with great fear, endless tears, anger and gut...
As part of many Shamanic cultures a person is called to be a Shaman by their village or tribe when the person chosen has faced death and lived to tell about it.
The tribe believes the spirits took mercy on the healer and helped them live with the agreement that they would heal others with the help of their power animals and spirits. It became a working agreement between the Shaman and the Spirits.
Part of my path as an Energy Healer and Shamanic Medicine Practitioner started a lot like these chosen Shaman.
A childhood filled with both physical and emotional abuse, sexual assaults and finally a near death experience where I lost every ounce of blood in my body and then some, woke me up enough to understand life was about more than I had been struggling with.
It took a near death experience to help me recognize that there is more to our existence and I hadn't been using my rightful power, although admittedly it took years before I would truly understand how to use it.
Have you ever shut down your manifestation goals with:
"There's just no way, it's ridiculous to even think I can, whom am I anyway."
"There just isn't enough time, money or me to go around and get it all done."
"I've tried before and it didn't work."
Yeah this gal right here has, probably a few more times than I'd like to admit!
I've just got back after spending 6 days with my grandbaby. Norah just turned one and she reminded me of what it's like to seamlessly go after what you want without fear.
When we were kids we dreamt big, we tried things without fear or pre-conceived notions and we just knew we could do it, even if it took us a few tries.
Then we grew up, life kicked us around a bit and we figured out that life doesn't always go as planned and sometimes it hurts...a lot and maybe we should stop doing those things that aren't comfortable.
I've been studying the art of transformation and manifestation for a lot of years now.
When I started this...
Create the vision, hold it in your mind's eye and then poof all your dreams come true. Is it really that easy?
Dear Sister Friend, I wish I could tell you so.
The truth is that manifesting what you want in life, whether it's a fatter bank account, thinner waistline, a more loving relationship or creating heart centered business doing what you love, takes more than just a hope and dream.
Creating a life you love takes vision, commitment to do the work and full trust in who YOU are, and what you are being called to do.
I want you to really meditate on this last statement I gave you.
The three parts required of you:
Often we give our power away, unknowingly of course.
We tell people our dreams and goals, and then they say something that we take to heart, because we think they know better than us, but they don't always.
This is why...
Now comes the good stuff, it's time to practice some serious transformational magic! Don't worry if you've missed the first two rituals you can find them below.
It's time my friend to get real about who you are and what you want, no more hiding and living behind someone else's veil.
Today's Empath Woman Awaken Ritual is going to teach you how to shed the old stories that keep you stuck, and embark on a new empowering journey.
Get out your journal, it's time to reach into the depths of your soul and uncover what it is you truly want and how you are going to get there.
Ritual #3: Authenticity Truth or Dare
In this exercise I'm going to ask you to look at the POSSIBILITIES before the probability!
You're about to put the cart WAAAAAAYYYYY before the horse!
If one of my students had only focused on what was probable, do you think she'd be making 6 figures a year, only working 12 days a month and spending the rest of her time with her family and horses....
Hey There Friend,
You want to go into 2020 feeling unstoppable right! Awesome.
Here's what NOT to do:
INSTEAD you're about to take back your POWER.
Here is part 2 of the Empath Woman Awaken Ritual Series.
Today, let's walk through 2 simple steps to recognize where your power is being taken away from you:
This week is about empowering you with some serious truth, and a concrete way to stop struggling and get more of what you want.
You ARE tired of the struggle, RIGHT?
If you're still struggling, it's because something within you says it's not okay to have it.
Here's the FANTASTIC news about that!!!
Hey There Friend!
The end of the year is upon us, Grandfather Winter is here asking you to be still, to slow down, to put to rest old habits that no longer serve you, and celebrate what you have accomplished, and then of course prepare the way for the next best version of you.
It's the most "wonderful time of the year," as some would say...but for me it didn't always feel this way.
This time of year would bring a sense of urgency, and act as a reminder that I hadn't accomplished what I wanted, (again) and the year was quickly coming to an end. I was reminded yet another year had gone by and I still wasn't living the life I wanted, I was still stuck.
Then something changed...I discovered 3 rituals that changed my life...
but more on that in a minute.
Right now I want you to make a decision, do you want to spend another year-end stressed and overwhelmed in a constant state of restriction ... or do you want to create your life with intention and ease, and...
