Around this time last year the coast of NC was hit with Hurricane Florence, and now exactly one year later we are in the path of Hurricane Dorian. The damage that Hurricane Florence caused last year was catastrophic to my community, and she crossed land at a category 4. Hurricane Dorian was classified as a category 5 yesterday when it was still sitting directly on top of the Bahamas pounding them with life threatening winds and rains. They do expect for it to weaken slightly before it makes it to the East Coast, but still we are all petrified. Some residences and businesses are still not fully repaired from last years hit, and now we have to prepare to be hit again.
As long as I have electricity and I am able to I will provide updates as I receive them. As of 11:00am Eastern Standard time North Carolina is now under a Hurricane Watch! The stores are already running out of basic supplies like bread and water, and there are no more generators to be found within a 100 mile radius.
Last year when Hurricane Florence hit us, my whole apartment got flooded and I lost a lot of my belongings. I am so scared that it will flood again, and I am not sure if my landlord is even willing to renovate again if it does in fact flood. In addition, there are tons of people with no where safe for themselves or their pets to go during the storm. I have a group of friends, including myself, who have offered to help any of the less fortunate or elderly that need assistance in boarding up their houses, and/or helping to transport them and their pets to a safe location.
Please, can everyone take a second a say a little prayer for everyone that is in the path of Hurricane Dorian? Lord knows, we need all the prayers we can get right now. Thank you all in advance for taking the time to say a prayer. I will keep you posted as this storm gets closer.
Until approximately two years ago I had never experienced, or even heard of, Reiki Healing. The first time I ever experienced it was when I had a distance healing that my sister bought for me as a gift two years ago. Because I had never heard of Reiki, I was kind of skeptical, but I had decided that I would be open to this new experience.
I had no idea how the session would go, or if she would even be able to “tune in” to my energy from so far away. Afterall, I was in North Carolina and she was in California. But, I went along with it anyway, but secretly I remained a skeptic. So, on the evening of my scheduled reading the phone rang at exactly 9:00 pm and when I answered I was surprised that she sounded exactly like the rest of us. I don’t know what I expected her to sound like but, it was anything but normal. We chatted for about 10 minutes and she went over a few things, and then she asked me to lay down flat on my back somewhere comfortable so that when ready she could begin the healing. Then we hung up the phone and she said she would call me back to discuss her findings in about 30 minutes. She also told me that I may experience the feeling of someone’s hands moving up and down my body, or I may begin to feel heavy and sleepy, but again, secretly I was like yeah right.
I layed down on my bed the way she instructed me to and tried to quiet my mind. Then, suddenly I could feel what felt like heat moving up and down my body. I continued to feel that for about 10 minutes, and then I began to feel very heavy and sleepy just like she said I would. The next thing I remember was the phone ringing over and over again, I had fallen asleep for a whole hour, and she had been trying to call back to finish the healing. But I was in such a deep sleep that I didn’t even hear the phone ringing and it was right beside me on the bed.
Once I woke up and was back on the phone with her I began listening to all of the things that she was saying, and every one of them were 100% true. Some things that she was saying were things that no one knew except for me, and at that moment I became a true believer. The conversation continued for about another hour while I listened intently to every single word that was coming out of her mouth. I was completely astonished at the truth behind everything that she was telling me.
Needless to say, after that healing my perspective changed and I became a believer. And, I also decided to try to learn all there is to learn about Reiki healing and the Law of Attraction and all of the things that both of those topics entail. I just wanted to share my experience with you guys in case there is someone out there that can benefit from learning about my personal experience. If you ever have a chance to get a Reiki distance healing you must look this woman up as she is amazing. Her name is Marisa Moris and she has a website, blog, and she has written a couple of books as well. I promise you that you will not be disappointed. Love and light to all!!
With respect to the Law of Attraction, we are constantly hearing about intention and how we should direct it. So, what exactly is intention I wondered? So, this post is dedicated to what I discovered about intention.
My personal definition of intention is, the act of directing your awareness and focus towards something that you want to occur. So, in reference to the Law of Attraction how does intention fit in to the big picture?
Intention is the act of focusing your awareness on your desire, so setting your intention is the starting place for bringing your desires into existence.
According to Abraham-Hicks, this is how it works: First, you must purely focus on your desire for at least 17 seconds. And when I say “purely” that means without any interruptions or distractions. Your purely focused thought will then send a signal out to the Universe, and because of the Law of Attraction, the Universe will return another thought that is an exact vibrational match back to you. The first thought will now coalesce with the second thought to create an even stronger thought. Although, at this point the thoughts do not have very much strength behind them, if you continue this process until you have held your pure thoughts for at least 68 seconds then at this point you have joined several thoughts together to form a very powerful thought with enough momentum to activate the Law of Attraction. And, once you achieve this the Universe has no choice but to deliver to you exactly what you are asking for.
As an empath myself, I have learned the hard way the importance of clearing my energy on the regular. When I have gone for many days without clearing it I can feel myself being weighed down with everyone else’s energies and negativities. As empaths it is most important for us to do this, otherwise we may end up confusing someone elses energy with our own. So, just as a general rule it is good to clear your energy regularly.
Lately, I’ve been curious about the aspect of allowing as it pertains to the law of attraction and manifesting. For me, this is definitely the most difficult part of the whole concept of manifestation. I have taken the time to sit down and get clear on what exactly it is that I want (step 1), and I have asked the Universe for it (step 2), but when it comes to the final step of actually allowing my desire to manifest (step 3) is where I get stuck.
I have been reading lots of articles and books about the art of allowing, and it really is not as easy as it seems. Mainly because of lack of self-love, and some other issues that are blocking my energy from flowing; therefore not allowing my desires to manifest.
So, I set out to discover how I can learn to allow these desires to come into my life, and here is what I discovered. A state of “allowing” means that you are fully aligned with the essence of the things you are trying to attract into your life. For example, if you are trying to manifest wealth then you have to get in the state of mind where you feel like you’ve already obtained wealth. Your affirmations should reflect your appreciation for having already obtained wealth. And to take it a step further, each day you should be grateful for all that you have been blessed with in this life.
A couple of other tips I discovered are first, detach yourself from how your desire will manifest, because dwelling on this will cause your vibration to lower because it represents awareness to the lack of your desire. Second, detach yourself from when your desire will manifest. Meaning you can’t sit around wondering when it will come. Instead, you should leave it to the Universe to align all the right circumstances and events to bring this desire to you at the perfect time.
Lately, I have been digging deeper into the whole aspect of manifesting, and I ran across a technique while reading the book, “Ask, And It Is Given,” by Jerry and Esther Hicks, that will allow you to manifest anything you want in approximately 68 seconds! Here is how it works:
Think of something that you want to manifest, and continue to hold that thought without interruption for 17 seconds. Once you have held a pure thought for at least 17 seconds, it will have enough momentum to activate another thought just like it, and now the two thoughts combine together to create a more powerful thought. Continue to hold that same thought purely for another 17 seconds, and again the Universe will send you another thought that is an exact vibrational match. These thoughts then coalesce to create an even more powerful thought. Continue this process of holding your thought for 17 seconds until you have reached a total of 68 seconds. Once you have held a pure thought for 68 seconds you have activated the Law of Attraction, and by law the Universe will now start to align circumstances and events that will allow this thought to manifest into your existence.
Because, as we know, whatever we think about becomes our reality. So, make the conscious decision to focus your thoughts only on what you do want, and not on what you do not want. By doing this, you are ensuring that you are manifesting a life that you want.
Being in alignment with Source energy is essential to obtaining what you want in life. But, many are not aware of the vital role that vibration plays in creating their life experiences. Are you aware of your vibration and how it is being received by the Universe? A foolproof way to know what vibration you are sending out into the Universe is to use the Emotional Guidance Scale. This scale is shared by Abraham-Hicks and channeled through Esther Hicks in the book she co-authored with her husband Jerry, “Ask, And It Is Given.” Through the voice of Esther, Abraham explains the Emotional Guidance Scale and how we can use it to determine our exact vibrational frequency at any given time.
The Emotional Guidance Scale is a scale of 22 of the most common human emotions listed in order from the best feeling emotions all the way down to the worst feeling emotions. The way it is supposed to work is you first have to identify your current emotion, and then find the corresponding emotion on the guidance scale. Also, the higher the level of emotion you are experiencing the higher your vibration is and the more in alignment you are with Source energy. Consequently, the lower the level of emotion you are experiencing the lower your vibration and the more out of alignment you are with Source energy.
However, do not worry if you are at a low level emotion because it is very easy to climb up the scale as long as you take it one step at a time rather than trying to make a quantum leap from a low level emotion all the way up to a high level emotion. As humans, we only have access to emotions that are a vibrational match to our current emotion. Which helps explain further why moving up the scale one step at a time is the only way to actually climb up the scale successfully. Below is a visual of the emotional guidance scale which will help you to further understand how to use it in your daily life.
As an empath and a claircognizant you would think that my biggest struggle would be with not taking on others energy as my own, but in fact that is not my biggest struggle. What I struggle with the most is learning to love myself for exactly who I am! Why is this so hard?
I can easily accept others for who they are and rarely place expectations on them. I am able to easily relate to how they are feeling and what they are experiencing and can even give some pretty sound advice on how they can try to deal with their circumstances, but when it comes to me….I am at a loss! For example, if I have someone to cook for I will prepare wonderful dinners without even blinking an eye. But, if I am eating alone (which I do most of the time) I can’t even manage to heat some leftovers up in the microwave and will often go without dinner or go through a drive thru and grab a dollar cheeseburger. Why can’t I value my health and longevity as much as I do others? How is it possible that I can find it in myself to be motivated to help others, but I can’t find the motivation to help myself?
Are you a non-confrontational person? Are you satisfied with just sweeping things under the rug and never dealing with them again? Well, this could be the reason that the Law of Attraction isn’t working for you.
Unfelt or suppressed emotions like anger, resentment, and guilt are dense emotions and block your energy. The emotional body is magnetic and holds on to suppressed emotions until you allow them to move, by expressing them. Unless released these emotions hinder you from raising your vibrational frequency and can result in physical manifestations like chronic pain, anxiety, migraines, ulcers, and other forms of illness. A healthy emotional body vibrates and attracts light, which is what raises consciousness.
It is necessary to move anger (and other negative emotions), a dense energy out of your physical and emotional body in order to attract positive experiences.
Blocking or repressing emotions, especially negative emotions only results in a negative manifestation that can be destructive to you and those around you. By honestly allowing yourself to feel and release these emotions, you release the pain and trauma associated with it.
Clearing emotional blocks involves work on all aspects of our being:
• Body – deep relaxation through breath;
• Mind (conscious/intellect) – through awareness;
• Emotion (subconscious/feelings) – through acceptance;
• Behaviour (unconscious/automatic response) – through experiencing a shift and
• Spiritual (transformation) – through observing and witnessing the effects of the learning in our life
Healing from the inside out is achieved through subconscious clearing. Deeply rooted emotions, images and beliefs affect our energy. Our energetic emanations and vibrations influence our health, attitudes and the circumstances in our lives. Subconscious clearing is a meditative technique to help relieve and release destructive imprints within our energetic fields.
If you find a grudge that you’ve been holding on to, it’s time to release yourself from it’s heart hardening effects. As long as you hold on to hurt and disappointment, they will have power over you and your life. It is in your best interest to let it go and be free from their effects.
We don’t hurt the ones we are mad at as much as we hurt ourselves by holding on to the anger. It’s not worth it. Allow yourself to truly feel your emotions and watch as the trauma behind it just floats away.
If you are familiar with the Law of Attraction then you know that everything is energy, and energy vibrates at different frequencies. So, it makes sense that you attract into your reality experiences, events, and people that are aligned with your energy and vibration. That is why it is important to raise your vibration and uplift your energy because this will cause your external environment to mirror this same energy.
If what you desire is to attract a new set of experiences, events and people into your reality then continue reading to find out step-by-step how to manifest your desires.
Now, obviously this is not going to happen overnight, but if you will follow each step and really put your heart and soul into it you will see results! It’s all about getting to know your true self and identifying what it is that you truly desire.
