I spend a good deal of time encouraging my clients to “shift.” Since positive energy is so much a part of my speaking and teaching, I feel the means to reach it should be here on my blog. By the way, I do a lot of shifting myself! Sometimes we find ourselves in a funk for whatever reason: a stressful day, waking up on the wrong side of bed, challenges at work or at home… Admit it—we’re all bombarded with a myriad of difficult situations every day. How we stack them up is a barometer of our feelings at any given time. More importantly, it’s a way to see what else we may be allowing into our energetic field that might be creating a tornado of chaos.
“I live in one of the busiest and noisiest places in the world, New York City. Some nights I have difficulty sleeping due to outside distractions. How and where can I find peace and quiet in my everyday life?” We all have moments when it is difficult to surrender our repetitive thoughts and let go of the difficult aspects of our day. This is usually a reminder to breathe, be still, and come fully into the present. Mindful breathing is crucial to your higher self. It is the one thing you can do to become more present with any distraction in your life, whether on the street, in the office, or late at night when you are restless. So breathe deeply and consciously whenever you can!
We’re in such an exciting time! Do you feel it? Change is upon us, and is long overdue. This is a time when major shifts are occurring in our culture, economy, and spiritual awareness. Those who are aware and awake predicted all of this. The old paradigms we’ve lived by for centuries just aren’t working anymore. So here we are on the brink of a new beginning. A global rebirth that has been in the works for a very, very long time.
Let’s look at our upcoming election. Not in a factual way, but with new eyes: our soul eyes. They are located in two places: our divinely spiritual third eye, centered on the forehead just above our eyes, and in our heart — the largest energetic center we have! In my heart, I feel that we all don’t need to come together factually, we need to come together vibrationally. For the good of one and all, we must journey beyond excessive thinking and move into our heart. Oh, you say, isn’t my brain in my head and that’s where my decisions come from? Yes, it can be difficult to leave the logical world and enter the space of feeling and emotion. But when we live too much in our head, we bypass our true nature and our authentic selves. We obsess about the facts and our choices.
I notice many people with a phone attached to their ear as they are walking down the street. Cell phone usage in stores, on mass transit, in cars, and many people who keep their blackberry on, even when they sleep, are all indicators that we are definitely losing the big picture. I often see the same woman walking for exercise, and every time she is talking on her phone. Children of all ages are sending text messages all day long and playing on the computer a good portion of the evening.
