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...
Hey There Friends!
Hope y'all are doing amazing, right before I recorded this episode I went on a 7.5 hike with a buddy and laughed like I haven't laughed in years....and you know what, I was right in the middle of some serious relationship drama!
I tell you this only because I always promise to be real with you, I don't want you to ever think that in order to share your wisdom and help uplift another person, you have to have it all together....the truth is we are all human having a human experience and are meant to grow. I personally want to grow and grow and grow...
Let's chat relationships shall we?
When I talk about relationships during this episode I am talking about anyone and everyone you wish to leave that interaction feeling happy, full of joy and full of good energy, rather than the opposite.
If you are a yeller (or wish you could yell), sometimes over-reacting to finally feel heard or valued, then this episode is for you.
Hey There Gorgeous!
Hope you're enjoying your Summer, are you ready for the kiddos to head back to school yet?
I homeschool mine, so its actually the opposite for me, I love the freedom Summer brings, I get so much more done!
With school getting ready to go back into session, and being that you've had all these weeks with the kids, I thought I'd share a few secrets about raising highly sensitive children.
Some of my absolute favorite clients have been working with families raising these highly intelligent, sensitive, super active, ridiculously amazing, yet demanding kids!
My business was called Nourish The Gift - Not the Disorder, often it's simply about bringing these kids into balance, to nourish their gifts rather than the destructive patterns that can show up when out of balance.
After being a highly sensitive child myself, and raising four of my own along with several years of working with Physicians and families across the nation,...
