As a Consciousness Coach, I help you understand HOW you're creating your reality, and teach you proven methods to living your very best and happiest life. Life is easier than you think. I can show you how to relax and allow it to work for you. You deserve to live a happy life, I can help.

Holiday Hubub

Every time I turn around I’m invited to shop and consume…. stuff.


“From decorations to unique gifts, find what you’re looking for this season…”

“Save time and money this holiday season with Microsoft Bing so you can focus on what really matters”

Microsoft

Uhhhhh…. OK, Microsoft.

It’s the same story… “Get the best gift, the most interesting gadget”… blah, blah, blah. All for what?

Shop, buy, consume until you can’t move around your house or your life. Do this to make others “happy” and large corporations a ton of money. (I’m joyfully looking forward to the days when no one supports Bill Gates.)

Do it, they say.

Be popular and interesting they say.

Enough.

Be happy, I say.

Be at peace, I say.

Relax and let go of what others want you to do or who they want you to be.

Be YOU, I say.

Notice and release the energy that tells you to go, go, go if you don’t really FEEL like go, go, going.

But, if it jazzes you, go go go!

For me, traveling and accommodating everyone during the holidays was exhausting. I’ve learned over the years what I can do and what I won’t. It’s important we find, define and enforce those boundary’s for ourselves. People won’t do it for us.

Question… What if instead of running yourself ragged and consuming for the next month you lived life by your own rules, doing the things you know are important, to you.

Even if you decide to do something you’d rather not because, being with that person IS what’s important to you. See what I did there?

There are many ways to support everyone’s highest good, and moving the energy around everything allows those solutions to present themselves with more speed and ease.

New Gifts

What if, what you’re looking for this season is actually the Peace and Joy that so many advertisers say is at the end of your next purchase transaction. It’s not. Not true long term health and happiness.

Maybe it fills a hole for a short moment, to be followed next by that deep need for more.

But the more that we actually we need isn’t things.

It’s our health, our happiness, and the amount of joy we experience and share with others on a regular basis.

And if that’s the kind of more you’re looking for, I’ve got you covered.

What you receive from sessions with me is actual Peace and Joy.

Releasing ourselves from the ties that have bound us to old ideas, experiences and traumas, that shaped our early lives but that certainly no longer serve us, is freedom.

Once this old energy is shifted, life becomes infinitely more exciting and fun. Then we can enjoy the holidays in a way that is nourishing and love filled. We can buy local, handmade or consumable gifts from small businesses or make them ourselves, because we have the time.

From my own personal experience, when we stop doing all the shit we don’t want to do, it turns out we have more than enough time for the things that are actually important to us.

But, if this old school consumerism is your jam, enjoy! All experiences are relevant.

However, if you ARE over this bullshit consumer matrix hamster wheel of shopping for worth, let’s chat!

Everyone gets to have their own experience, so I’m here for all of you that want more real, authentic experiences, conversations and connections.

Peace and joy every day, not just during the “holidaze”. This is just a really good time to notice and begin making that change.

I’m here to soothe and support you through the transition of living for others, into the beautiful understanding that living for ourselves allows us to be so much better for those folks.

It’s easier than you think and I’m here to help.

I love you so much!

Secrets of Life

Psst! Come over here. I’m gonna tell you a secret.

Only the humans… come closer.

They really don’t want you to hear this…

🚨 All humans want the same things. 🚨

Love, connection, health, happiness, joy, peace, ease, excitement, creativity, fulfillment, security, abundance, etc…

But, we’ve been CONvinced by “them” that there are large groups of people against us. Gunning for us, coming for us. Trying to take our rights away.

That’s not true. It’s actually only one small group.

🧐 Who makes all the money while the majority suffer the consequences?

Notice and then draw your own conclusions about who is for or against you.

🧐 Is the product they sell beneficial or hurtful to humans and the planet?

It’s so simple, it’s ridiculous.

🧐 Are they promoting fear and division or love and connection?

🧐 What are they saying? What are they doing?

🧐 Are those words and actions in alignment with each other?

💭Are my words and actions in alignment with my highest ideals? 💭

When I come into alignment with my source, I begin to feel what alignment feels like.

I hear what alignment sounds like.

I see what alignment looks like.

I know alignment.

And I can see when things are NOT in alignment.

And then from my place of peace and calm.

I make powerful decisions and take inspired action that is of the utmost benefit to all of humanity.

This is Truth.

This is the REAL reality.

LIVE it.

LOVE every minute of it.

Break the matrix.

I love you so much!!

The Physical Sensations of Emotion

Our emotions. They’re so powerful.

They can make a terrible situation tolerable or make a great situation miserable. All based on what we’re thinking in a moment.

We’re willing to go through a difficult situation for someone we love, while telling them, it’s no trouble and we’re so happy to do it.

And we can also feel unnecessarily forced in a moment by circumstances we feel we have to control, whereby making a perfectly reasonable activity uncomfortable and sticky.

And all these emotions and mental chatter are about one thing…. an uncomfortable physical sensation in your body. That, if you’d focus on (without thinking about) for just a moment and allow to relax, could in an instant, change your whole world forever.

Dr. Joe Dispenza has described emotion as “energy in motion”. I absolutely agree. This recognition is a large part of conscious creation and makes life a whole lot simpler. Yes, please and thank you!

The Trouble With That IS

If we’re constantly living in an overly emotional state we can never relax. We’re always wound up or exhausted. Wired for sound or absolutely dead on our feet.

From this place of emotional living we never allow our bodies a moment to come down from the survival mode we’ve been living in for the past ___ years.

But, when we understand that the ONE SINGLE thing that keeps us feeling emotional is, the way we’re thinking when we’re feeling what we’re feeling.

And if we can just stop. STOP. Relax and breathe. Take our mind offline.

Stop thinking and just feel what the physical sensation of _____ feels like.

  • What is it? Fear, worry, anger, upset, frustration, irritation?
  • Where do I feel it? Stomach, hips, lower? Chest, shoulders, throat, head?
  • Can I sit with and allow my body to feel what it’s feeling?
  • Can I relax my mind around the stories of the emotion, while honoring my physical body to release this old trauma programing?

These physical sensations are there for us to notice, if we’re willing to notice. And when we do, we’re free. It’s only our mind that keeps these stories and uncomfortable feelings swirling around in our bodies and world.

This is our own personal power.

This is our ability to make good decisions, all the time.

This is our connection to our intuition and highest source.

Power Hour

I’m leading a live Power Hour in my hometown and it’s fantastic! It has been so warmly embraced. People really needed the love and support.

Join Us for Power Hour Energy Moving Classes in Lockhart, Texas. Bring a yoga mat, water bottle and your biggest stress and struggles. This is where healing meets empowerment.

I’m creating a space for folks to come in, set aside their busy mind and relax their bodies around stress and struggle. I guide them through breathing and moving around uncomfortable feelings to allow the emotions to be released without much effort.

The results are physical relief from pain and emotional tension, along with long term mental/emotional struggles being relieved and resolved.

It has been my intention to grow a wider circle of Conscious Creators around me and it’s been such a blessing to watch them show up in real life. Thank you, Lockhart!!

For those of you that aren’t in my area but would like to participate in a Power Hour… email, text, call, message, send a smoke signal or comment on this post.

We can do it individually or in groups.

Get your like minded friends together and collectively support each other in letting go of all your shit.

It’s a beautiful thing.

I love you so much!

Let the Triggering Commence!

You know what it is, conscious creators. Fuel.

Fuel for the fires of spiritual growth and ascension. Yes, please and thank you! Bring it on.

When we understand “triggers” in this way, we’re never concerned about being triggered. Or triggering someone ourselves.

Which, by the way, happens to me all the time.

I’m a “triggerer”. I tend to speak plainly and in a real way about real things. Not everyone likes that.

Recent Revelations

I was triggered into getting real REAL with someone the other day. Wowza. Did that NOT go over well.

(It happens to the best of us. Everyone in fact. So, quit worrying about it and Aikido that shit, use it to your benefit.)

I will absolutely admit to being triggered into that total realness and was having to breathe through some pretty intense feelings in my body.

After enduring things over and over, one gets to the point of needing to say something. So I did.

For days after the exchange, I was still moving energy around it, questioning everything, and I struck gold. (As is likely to happen when you move the energy and question everything.)

What triggered me about the exchange was an action and way of behaving that I have encountered more in my life than I want and instead of smiling and nodding and pretending to laugh at it, which I normally do, I didn’t.

I spoke my truth and said what I needed to say. I didn’t cuss and I wasn’t ugly. Though, my stern voice, I’ve been told can get a little loud. Who fucking cares? I don’t regret a word I said.

Moving Onward and Upward

And after the interaction, I got clearer and clearer about why I was so irritated.

My own painful memories of a much younger time surfaced for me to notice, acknowledge and release. Yes, please and thank you!

This beautiful soul was the teacher I needed to help me let go of some very old, crusty energy that, were I focused on it because of someone more important to me (say, an original player in the drama) it would have been much more difficult.

But, as it were, this was just a bit player in my life story. Not a foundational character that I can’t live without.

And isn’t this just exactly like most of the frustration and irritation in our lives? They aren’t THAT important. They’ve just shown up to help us uncover more of ourselves we’ve kept hidden because we didn’t know how to let it go.

Conscious creators understand that everything that triggers us in our lives is FOR OUR BENEFIT. And when you look at it that way, it is.

Saying someone is wrong for triggering us and holding them responsible for our feelings will only insure we have that sort of interaction again.

Whereas moving through the energy of the exchange and receiving the wisdom inherent in every situation will move us to a whole new level of consciousness and existence that we’ve yet to experience.

One in which we aren’t so constantly triggered by every upsetting and irritating story that scrolls across whatever screen we may currently be viewing.

Learning to Release the Trigger.

We don’t always have to get so real with folks. And it would have been my preference to NOT have had that exchange, because I care about people and don’t want to upset them. (And this more of me taking responsibility for other’s feelings… ha! See how this goes?)

But, here we are. All is well and I’ve just leveled up. Yes, please and thank you!

Can I see the current drama, trauma and insanity in our world today as an indicator that something better is coming?

What am I currently focused on that is causing me the most stress?

Is there another way to see it that serves me better?

Where do I carry that stress in my body?

I’m here to help folks alchemize that energy and those emotions into pure gold that they get to use. And when we understand that energy is the real currency we begin to see the true power in this.

I’ve described it as carrying around multiple 20lb bags of ice or being lifted and moved along by the steam that powers engines.

It’s all your energy and you get to choose in which way you engage with it.

Are you carrying it or is it carrying you?

It’s so much more fun to buoyed along, than to drag around the weight of the world.

I invite you to experience it for yourself.

I love you so much,
Crystal

On Asking Others

Have you ever noticed how often we ask others what’s right or wrong? What’s good or bad? Asking and hoping someone else will make the decision process easier for us.

I’m amazed at the little sheep we humans can be needing others to tell us what is acceptable or not.

PRO TIP: No one can tell YOU what’s right for YOU.

One more time in case you missed it. No one else can tell you what’s right or wrong for you.

That’s for us to figure out.

Each of us, individually, for our own selves. Not to be redundant or anything.

When you know how to find out how you truly feel about all things, you’ll no longer be trapped by the group think/hive mind that keeps people in situations they don’t like and wouldn’t choose, if it weren’t for the outward appearance of others choosing it as well.

This is the trouble with social media sites that have the ability to censor real live human beings while allowing fake, controlled accounts to flood the news feed. It creates an illusion of consent that isn’t necessarily there.

What if you knew how to discover your truth for yourself?

What if you never had to ask anyone else for advice or support in “figuring” something out.

What if the answers to all of your questions and wildest wonderings were available to you when you needed them?

Well, you can, you don’t and they are.

That’s not to say you can’t talk out what you need to talk out with whomever you do that with, it just means that ultimately you’ll make your own decision no matter what they might say.

Connection to Your Highest Knowledge

Your physical body is an instrument panel that is constantly giving you feedback based on the experiences you’re living.

Learn to read it and you’re golden. You have the keys to the kingdom. You are in complete control of your life, health and happiness.

When you’re asking another, you assume they know better than you, otherwise you wouldn’t ask them. I know this from my own personal experience.

But, what we really want is peace, ease, joy, health, inspiration and excitement. These can’t always come from other peoples answers.

When we learn to tune in to our own instrument panel for better connection and our higher knowing about all things, our lives become infinitely easier.

My ability to discern has grown exponentially and continues to expand every day.

Truth or manipulation, love or fear, concern or control… important questions to ask ourselves and very easy to determine by tuning into our instrument panel.

I’m here to help you get closer to you.

I want to help you tune into your own instrument panel, not mine.

You’ll get so grounded in your own inner knowing that nothing on Earth could shake your peace.

I’m ready when you are.

Schedule here.

I love you so much,
Crystal

Live in the NOW, man.

My parents divorced when I was a little girl. My home life being what it was after that, I knew that to be happy and peaceful I had to graduate from high school. I had to get away and it was 11 years down the road. I was 6 years old. 

It was also around that time that my dad would wake me up in the mornings for school, and upon waking I would realize where I was and I would cry, he would tell me, “It’s a cold, cruel world girl, and you’re going to have to do things you don’t want to do for the rest of your life.” I was 6 years old. 

A recent Abraham quote brought this full circle for me…  

Make up your mind that nothing is more important than how I feel now, because now is everything. Now is the whole enchilada. Now is the power of me. Now, now, now, now, now… You might as well start somewhere, and it might as well be now. Why not start improving your life now, now, now? 

Excerpted from Tarrytown, NY on 10/9/04

Our Love,

Esther
(and Abraham and Jerry)

I am who I am, in large part, because of that earlier scenario.

I’ve realized that the energy I’ve carried for the majority of my life is one of difficulty with the potential for ease but only after a long, long time. How far away is 11 years for a child? Yuck. 

Totally solar plexus.  And as I sit with it and it moves up into my chest, lightening and heart pounding, then relaxing into buzzing and tingling up through my throat. Now on up through my jaw, sinuses and tingling like a plate on top of my head. What a freaking relief. 

I have been unconsciously carrying that energy for 43 years. The struggle for peace, allowing it for a moment and then finding something else to struggle for or against. It’s exhausting. But, also, it’s very human. Bless all of our hearts.

I lived that reality until I knew better. And what I know now is this… 

You live in a loving and
supportive Universe. 
You get to do whatever you want
for the rest of your life.

Crystal Nuding

That means if you want to be a petty, selfish, ugly, spiteful, small minded, hateful person, it’s your path. It’s all for your experience. All Blessings to you.

But, there’s always a new day and each moment offers us a fresh opportunity to be our own best, happiest and healthiest self, living for everyone’s highest good.

It’s available to each of us in equal amount that NO ONE can deny or refuse. No man, NO government.

NO ONE can stop you from using your mind in a way that can change your circumstance drastically. No physical effort required. You are free. Learn how.

The first discrimination we face, that could only then translate into our outer world reality, starts in our mind. Free yourself. 

Learn how to feel better NOW (by moving the energy) and allow your own freedom. 

We are vibrational beings living in a vibrational universe. 

Figure out what’s twisting up your NOW moment and move the energy around it.

It’s the only thing keeping it around.

I am celebrating our freedom NOW.

Take such good care.

I love you so much,
Crystal

Recognizing Nature’s Way

Spending time in my garden in the mornings always provides such wonderful insight.

No matter what’s happening in my life Mother Nature soothes and inspires me every time. Even when my first reaction has a negative slant. (This isn’t what I want, this is hard… ya know, that ol’ chestnut!)

As a conscious creator I recognize mental anguish and physical discomfort as an invitation to release myself from a situational (vibrational) loop started by a belief that didn’t serve me.

It’s a powerful thing to understand, which allows us to more easily control our emotions and not be sideswiped by negative mental chatter.

Allowing Support

I’ve been spending a fair amount of time picking off squash vine borer eggs from my squash plants. They are as relentless at leaving them as I am of searching for and picking them off.

But, I’ll tell you. I’m tired. I want to relax. And that gal has no other objective in life than to do what she’s doing. That just feels like an uphill struggle.

So, to more fully support myself and my garden, I’m learning to feed my soil.

I’m taking Dr Elaine’s Soil Foodweb program and am in the process of starting my first (biocomplete!) compost pile so I can make sure the right microbes are in the soil to provide the perfect mix of nutrients my plants need to protect themselves from this sort of attack.

And voila! Nature’s way. Yes, please and thank you!!

We puny humans are no match for Mother Nature so I’m supporting myself by learning how to work in harmony her.

In nature, all systems support each other. Here’s to humanity coming into alignment with this principal and learning how to put it into a sustainable practice.

Reality Check!

As I’m writing this, I’ve run 2 cats and a squirrel (3 times!) out of my garden space. I can’t stop giggling about the irony.

Welcome to humanity, I say.

I’m human! What happens when I’m not looking… happens.

But, If I’m around… I’m going to run out hollering with arms flailing. This is where I am.

When I move the energy around it one of two things will happen… 1) I’ll do something different. Or 2) they’ll stop fucking with my shit. Either way works for me because I’ll feel better first!

I also encourage some things to come into my garden and enjoy themselves… like the two Black Swallowtail caterpillars resting between feasts on my curly parsley.

Aren’t we humans fickle? Rules for some, but not for all?

The trick is to find the value in every single experience and learn for the next opportunity.

We all have different objectives and agendas.

My motto is “For everyone and everything’s highest good. No exceptions.”

And so it is.

Keep Growing!

Another thing I know about Mother Nature’s way is that if we humans just stopped harmful practices, everything would return to balance.

Much like our negative thinking being the only thing that keeps us bumping into things we don’t like or want. It’s only our negative farming and land practices that keep our soil, livestock and human bodies nutrient deficient and depleted. The moment we withdraw our harmful inputs the healing begins again.

As I roam around my garden pulling up baby tree and shrub seedlings that are everywhere, I see how God wants us to just keep moving forward planting our seeds of love, support and connection. Don’t look back at what didn’t materialize or come to full fruition, just keep moving forward planting our seeds.

The moment those seeds put their tiny roots into the soil, they are contributing to the soil community, releasing exudates and calling forth microbes with the sugars it releases from the process of photosynthesis and pulling carbon out of the atmosphere. Super helpful to the soil and all life on Earth.

And the very moment I pull them out of the ground, room is made where the roots have been released which opens the space for more movement through the soil. Oxygen floods into those spaces further supporting healthy microbial life and the plant material is either left in place to provide armor for the soil and further nutrients for the microbes, or put in a compost pile for more of the same. Super helpful to the soil and all life on Earth.

There’s benefit in each scenario. Cool, huh?

It’s About Relationships

No man is an island. No one goes through life alone. We weren’t meant to.

We’re here because of nature, dependent on nature.

In my estimation our ultimate, big picture goal is to live in creative cooperation with one another and all living beings in our environment to create Heaven on Earth.

Plants don’t thrive singularly either. They need their plant community around them, the more diverse the better.

And the microbial life in the soil those plants are living in? They need that same sort of diversity in the life around them, providing the vital, highly bio-available nutrients the plants need, while storing the carbon the plants have pulled from the atmosphere.

It’s amazing! And absolutely beautiful. The perfect system where every “pest” has a purpose and if you’re calling it waste, you just haven’t figure out how to utilize it yet.

LIFE!

Whether what we’re looking at is what we want, or what we don’t want. Our opportunity is right now.

As a conscious creator…

Am I walking my talk?

Am I anchoring in the reality I’d prefer by moving through life in ways that support that?

Or am I acting like there is such a thing as “a problem”?

I get to choose in every single moment.

The time is now.

Take a deep breathe in, audible (Ahhhhh) sigh on the outbreath. Do that a few more times. Feel yourself relax. Allow the mind to come down as well. It’s all energy and it’s all moving.

Quietly connect to that all loving power greater than ourselves. The source of all life.

Ask for higher perspective. Ask for support and inspiration and then, say Thank you!

Now, we listen, in this moment and throughout the day for the answers. The answers will come in the form of feelings, ideas, inspiration, the right person showing up and unexpected opportunities. Be open to them and pay attention to what you’re hearing, noticing and experiencing.

These are super exciting times we’re living in. The shifting of paradigms is intense at times and learning to flow in connection with nature will support you in more ways that you presently know.

Take good care.

I love you so much!
Crystal

How to Help

We live in an upsetting world.

That’s what 3rd Density is all about. Struggle.

Learning the place of “self” within the “whole”. Temporarily forgetting we are all connected; with all lessons pointing us to that single truth. All is Love.

Love is and everything else, isn’t.

That’s where you are, by the way, as a human being, you are currently in 3rd density. Density referring to the infusion of a being with “spirit”.

Rocks/mineral’s are 1st density, plants/animals are 2nd density, and then add our human conscious awareness to that animal body and you’ve reached 3rd density. With the natural progression being movement toward 4th density, which is the full recognition and experience that all is Love. Have you heard any of this before? Do you get it? Do you have questions? Please ask!

Our soul is on a journey… and 3rd density is about learning that love is the answer through series after series of struggles.

Or maybe your life has been charmed? If so, good for you! Tell us your secret.

I highly doubt that anyone reading this has not faced a certain amount of struggle and adversity in their lives.

So from this perspective we don’t have to “buy in” to the tragedies happening, seemingly all around us. No sooner are we through one terrible situation, then another is broadcast right on it’s heels. Is there no end? How can we stop all of this wrongness?

By first unhooking your mind.

If you’re looking at any situation as “one AGAINST another” and pointing out a “bad guy”, you’re missing the point and will surely face it again. And again and again and again until you stop doing that.

No worries. The universe has more than enough opportunities to provide you with a lifetime of blaming and complaining. So, if you’re loving it, don’t stop!

But how do we stop? How do we take control of our own lives? How do we stop judging people for things we ourselves have been guilty of?

Move the energy.

I posted this on social media…

🤓CONSCIOUS CREATION EXPLANATION🤓

What do you mean by “moving energy”?

“Moving energy” means… “to allow yourself to feel the feeling (the physical sensation in your body) of the emotion, without THINKING about WHY you’re having that emotion.”

The act of thinking about and focusing on a situation or scenario that upsets you, while you’re feeling upset, adds “energy” or fuel to a fire you don’t want.

You honor your own experience. No one else needs to. I know this is a hard one. Humans want validation. But, it’s worthless if WE don’t honor our own experience and feelings.

Every feeling you’ve ever felt is valid. That was your personal experience of the situation and no one gets to tell you it was wrong. Period.

Now, care enough about your own health and happiness to let it go. Honor your own experience. Allow yourself to feel it and move the fuck on.

Simple as that.

Although not always easy, because most are a slave to a busy, negatively focused mind.

Moving the energy is also the solution for releasing that monkey mind.

Move the energy, it’s the answer to every question.

What a beautiful thing! Yes, please and thank you!! I’m here to help.

I am totally here for clarifying questions!

What do you want to know about Conscious Creation?
Ask me anything.

Crystal Nuding

So, if you really want to help…

If you’re ready to make a real difference in your life and the world. Aside from posting angry stories and changing your profile picture to the crisis flavor of the day.

If you REALLY want to show solidarity and create actual change, move the energy.

Learn how you’re contributing to the problem. What are you fighting against?

That’s how you’re contributing to the problem.

Where are you using your powerful focus and energy to keep power hungry regimes IN power?

If you want the world to be better, this is what you’ve got to unravel.

And it’s as easy as moving the energy.

Details on how to do that are all over this website. Or reach out. I’m here for you.

I love you so much!!!

I love you like Jesus loves you.

Every dang one. No exceptions.

PS… Everything is always working out for you. And NO WORRIES! If you don’t figure it out this go around, you’ll just go again. 😘

Turn It Around

No matter what direction you’re headed, you can always turn it around.

Mentally, emotionally, physically… you can turn around your life, your health, your career, your relationships, even the soil and our environment… every single thing can be turned around.

In any given moment, you have within your ability to turn anything around.

What a relief! So, now that we know the bigger picture, take a deep breath and relax. The rest is just details.

Now For the Details

Have you ever changed jobs or moved to a new house and found yourself driving toward the old location? Then what happened? Did you keep driving to the old place? I doubt it, you probably snapped to, laughed to yourself and adjusted your course to your new destination. No big deal.

This is exactly the work of turning around our mental and emotional state. We remember our new destination is health, peace and joy so we turn around as quickly as we can when we find ourselves headed in the opposite direction.

So, the only way things couldn’t turn around is if we are UNWILLING to turn them around. And that’s something we each have to work through individually. No one is creating in our reality. It’s just us.

I decided in my 20’s I would rather be happy than right. I thank God everyday I made that particular decision. Yes, please and thank you.

How To Turn It Around

First, just imagine what it would be like if you could easily do that emotionally and mentally? Just turn it around and get yourself moving in the direction of your own peace, health and joy.

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to let go of the old story lines of anger, resentment, dis-ease, frustration, irritation, indecision, upset or overwhelm?

This idea of a mental/emotional detox is actually a life saving perspective and tool for the empaths among us.

If you aren’t an empath, you might think this isn’t important. But be assured, it’s highly valuable for everyone to actually feel what they feel in their own body for the good information it is and to release it and allow it to move. This opens the space for things to be better and more in alignment with your highest values and ideals.

Did you keep every book you ever borrowed from the library? Or did you read it, gather the information and return the book? Same thing goes with our feelings, we experience them for us to gather the information we need about what we’re currently facing. Honesty and discernment are our best tools for sorting through this information for what’s real and true and what’s not.

If you can begin to think about being able to easily say thank you, let it go and turn it around, you’ve got a lot better chance of actually doing it. After all, everything starts in our mind.

Get To The Root

This is the #1 cause for addiction of any sort and substance abuse, trying to numb something or feel something. Mentally and emotionally detoxifying yourself is your own personal entry point into unravelling the programming needed to address those issues honestly.

We should want to (be able to) let go of the old stories we continue to tell ourselves and others. And we can. We can have healthy, happy mental and emotional lives that allows for the familial and community connections all humans crave.

This is how our bodies naturally work when we acknowledge our own feelings and allow them to inform us. And properly using that information is how we detoxify our system mentally and emotionally.

When you allow the physical energy of the emotion to be felt and acknowledged it can then be understood and acted upon. That’s what I call turning it around.

And Even Better

What’s even better than just being able to control your emotions, enjoying physical health and joyful connection with others? Your body will change as well.

Releasing toxic mental and emotional baggage allows your body to begin functioning at a higher level. You’ll notice you feel better and have more energy. You’ll want to do things that are good for your body and you’ll notice that crap food will begin to taste like it. You’ll feel how good it feels to feel good and you’ll be inspired to more action that feels genuinely good. Not trying to numb/feel something to get away from yourself.

You’ll begin to notice how food, tv, show’s, conversations, social media apps, FEEL when participating or engaging in them and be able to make the decision to either stop doing it or move the energy around that particular situation. And it’s up to you in every moment.

The quicker we turn around negative thought patterns or habitual physical practices the easier it will be to create change quickly.

You still have free will to do it the old way, but with my life and experience I’ll go with mine.

I invite you to explore your thoughts and feelings to see how they’re working out for you. What situations or relationships in your life could use turning around?

PS… Yep, we can even turn around climate change. Read Gabe Brown’s book Dirt to Soil (or listen to the linked podcast) to see how turning around our current “Big Ag” model will be a major step toward environmental sustainability.

And, my words, not his… Doing the right things for ourselves and our environment won’t require us to pay major money to corrupt politicians to fly private jets to climate crisis summits. It’s a win, win!

Just Say Thank You

No matter what’s happening right now, no matter what you’re dealing with, say thank you.

If you’re awake/conscious enough to read these words, you have something to say thank you for.

Even if you don’t think you have something to be thankful for, chances are you have even more things to say thank you for.

When things are good, say thank you.

When things are GREAT, say thank you.

When things are bad, say THANK YOU.

It’s easy to count our blessings and say thank you in good times, but it isn’t easy when we’re in struggle to say thank you. And sometimes, even harder to mean it.

But, say it, even if you don’t mean it at first.

Say it even if you don’t yet understand why you should. Say it anyway. Thank you.

We have all the blessings we have because we appreciated them. And that’s how we keep them.

But, funnily enough, it’s also the quickest way to get through the hardest times.

Saying thank you, moves you toward what you would be thankful for, even if you don’t understand how.

“Be content with what you have, rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”

Lao Tzu

Say Thank You.

When you say “thank you” for your struggle or upset, your mind will begin giving you clues as to how this is going to be of benefit. You don’t have to figure it out. You can’t figure it out, certainly from the space of experiencing the problem.

But, you can say thank you, and that will start you down the beautiful path of understanding.

Even IF it is only to see that we don’t like a particular thing or behavior and will henceforth discontinue use of or association with said thing or behavior. “GREAT! Thank you. I mean that. Thank you for the information. I was on the fence before, but NOW, I get it. Thank you struggle. Thank you upset. You have given me the most powerful information I could ask for.”

Now, don’t use this opportunity to make someone bad or wrong. Just decide it’s not for you and go in a different direction. No need to fight, yell or cuss. “Oh, hey, this is NOT for me, great, Thank you.” (The advanced work is now questioning where this need to continually blame other’s and hold grudges comes from… hmmmmm?)

As a Conscious Creator… there is no need to be mad about it or try to force change. Appreciate it as the good information it provided and move on. Yes, please and thank you. For the rest of your life. Rinse and repeat. Forever and ever. Amen.

What sucks in your life today that you can start saying thank you for?

How wonderful will it be when you gain the peace and mental clarity around your particular situation that will allow you to then issue a true, heartfelt and hearty THANK YOU? Whew! What a relief. Yes, please and thank you.

I love this part. It always happens, once I’ve moved through my initial upset and kneejerk response. We’re human after all. Getting mad at ourselves over our habitual responses just adds to the time it takes to move through the energy. Endeavor to let that go as soon as possible.

And as you do, your “habitual responses” will shift as well. You’re less disturbed by others out of alignment (people that do bad/dumb/mean things) and you begin to support the shift of the whole toward more love, cooperation and harmony.

You’ve got enough to deal with. There’s enough on your plate. Let yourself off the hook first. Then let everyone else in the world off the hook. Bless all hearts.

As we move into the holiday season, I want to remind you that Thanksgiving can be every day. Just without all the cooking and clean up. And when it is you’ll find you have more and more to be thankful for.

Shifting the energy and feeling the peace of 10 Zen monks is actually attainable… without spending 40 years in a cave. You only need be willing to let shit go and say thank you.

Support yourself this holiday season by moving through difficult situations and conversations with ease and grace. You can’t control everything, but you can control yourself, and that can be much easier than you think.

Close out 2021 on a high note and sail smoothly into 2022 feeling the best and most excited you’ve been in years.

I’m here for it!

Take good care.
