HOW TO INCORPORATE A DAILY GRATITUDE PRACTICE

HOW TO INCORPORATE A DAILY GRATITUDE PRACTICE

Are you grateful? It is Thanksgiving in the United States today and this year is quite different than any other Thanksgiving I’ve ever experienced (including living overseas during an American holiday!). The COVID-19 pandemic crisis has changed how people can celebrate. So, I thought why not write about how to incorporate a gratitude practice into your daily routine? So, what is gratitude? It’s an affirmation of what is good and beneficial in our lives. However, we can be grateful for things that can be painful as well. Gratitude is in the eye of the beholder, and I struggled for YEARS with a healthy practice myself. One day — during my dark night of the soul — I started to think about things that had happened “to” me. I would say, “Everything would be great if ___ didn’t happen TO me.” And I stopped to think about that statement what had happened TO me. What if I changed the way I looked at the ‘bad’ shit that had happened throughout my life? What if I changed the statement to be a question, “How has my life changed for the better because of what happened FOR me?” I know some people think,… View Post
11:11 PORTAL TAROT READING 2020

11:11 PORTAL TAROT READING 2020

Happy 11:11! 11/11 is an exciting day because one is a powerful number. When it appears in duplicated form – as in the number eleven – some powerful energies are at play and eleven is an essential way that the Universe is awakening our consciousness. So, I thought, let’s check out an 11:11 portal tarot reading for 2020! We are currently living in a four year – and it has been a FOUR energy year! I have personally reflected on the powerful and pivotal forces each of the four energy years has unfolded throughout my life. As a refresher, four energy is all about stability and process; balancing logic with emotion. I don’t think I have to tell any of you that 2020 has been a YEAR. Just sit back for one minute and think about all that you have personally confronted and challenged over the past 11 months – it’s fantastic, and YOU are amazing too. What is my point in mentioning the year energy? Aside from the fact that 11:11 in itself presents a four energy frequency, I like to approach the 11:11 energy within the context of the current year’s strength. 11 is all about duality and… View Post
STRENGTH FROM WITHIN: THE LION’S GATE PORTAL TAROT READING 2020

STRENGTH FROM WITHIN: THE LION’S GATE PORTAL TAROT READING 2020

Happy Leo season! It is an extraordinary time of year – not just because I am a Leo – and that means it is time for the 8/8 Portal or The Lion’s Gate Portal. This gateway opens from the opening of Leo season (July 22nd) and lasts until August 12th. The peak date of the portal is August 8th, and so, I thought this would be a great time with the shift in the lunar phase and it being 8/8 to check in with Spirit and see what messages we could receive. Since this reading is all about the 8/8 Golden Leo energy, I decided to use the Golden Girls Tarot Cards: A Look Into Your Future from the Lanai – which is super fun to apply to any reading. WHAT IS THE LION’S GATEWAY PORTAL? Every year, on August 8th, a gateway aligns between the Earth and the star, Sirius, increasing the flow of energies between the spiritual and physical planes. As Sirius takes place in the sky, Orion’s Belt directly aligns with the Pyramid of Giza creating a portal which accelerates spiritual alignment. When this happens, there is powerful light shining through that awakens stagnant DNA, transmits a… View Post
Tarot Tuesday: Trust and Courage to Live Your Truth

Tarot Tuesday: Trust and Courage to Live Your Truth

So, it’s been a while. The world has been throwing so many curve balls at us lately. I am no exception to this, of course. These days we need trust and courage to live our Truth. We are currently living through such incredible energetic times. I mean, the tangible representation of events that have transpired over the past couple of months. As mentioned before, we are currently living out a four energy global year. Four energy is our heart chakra, the house of our Soul and our Inner Being’s core navigational system. Energetic shifts have been paving the way for this opportunity to embrace a path to ascension and higher levels of consciousness. One of the roadblocks I have faced during my spiritual awakening is trusting myself. Trust is vital to our self-esteem and our ability to trust and live harmoniously with others. I believe that the current energy we are living through is here to trigger us into trusting in not only our selves but who and what we have been attracting into our lives. I have personally gone through a lot of transitional events over the past 21 days. The old me would have made this time an… View Post
9 Ways to Access Your Inner Strength During Traumatic Experiences*

9 Ways to Access Your Inner Strength During Traumatic Experiences*

*“9 Ways to Access Your Inner Strength During Traumatic Experiences” was originally published on lonerwolf.com. Almost all of us have experienced some kind of traumatic or shocking event. When I speak of trauma, I don’t always mean extreme situations such as natural disasters, instances of abuse, rape, murder, and accidents. While traumatic experiences often are severe and horrific, they can also be seemingly “mundane” experiences such as losing a job, daily stress, divorcing, and moving somewhere foreign. Trauma also can, and often does, come as a result of the spiritual awakening process in which our entire self-concept begins to crumble and we’re thrown into the abyss of an existential crisis. Trauma is unique for each person. While we might find changing jobs just another daily task, another person may find the switch highly distressing. We should be very careful about judging other people when it comes to trauma. Every person is different and possesses different levels of sensitivity. 11 Signs You’re Going Through a Traumatic Experience A traumatic experience is anything that severely threatens your emotional, psychological or physical well-being. Essentially, trauma is anything that causes us to feel like we’re losing or have lost control. Feeling traumatized is often accompanied by the experiences of feeling: Numb or disconnected… View Post
