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.

Sign up for one of my subscriptions for steady support in creating actual peace and joy in your life this holiday season.

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.

Let It GO

Whatever you're holding onto... mentally, emotionally, physically or vibrationally, that doesn't serve you anymore, LET IT GO.

Whatever you’re holding onto… mentally, emotionally, physically or vibrationally, that doesn’t serve you anymore, LET IT GO.

Old stories, old events, old occurrences that you witnessed, participated in or maybe, actually, only heard about. Let that go, too.

If it isn’t 100% relevant in making your life better today, let it go.

So, that means if someone you know did something they probably weren’t proud of 11 years ago, LET THAT SHIT GO.

They don’t want to hear about it. And it has nothing to do with you. That was on THEM back then, but when you bring it up today, it’s on YOU. Let it go.

The only thing you need to concern yourself with, is yourself. You deal with you. If you make it about someone else, that’s YOUR problem. Let it go.

If it isn’t going to make the situation better, let it go.

We’ve all done things we aren’t proud of. And literally the fact that we’re not proud of them is what allows us to learn what we needed to learn, and now we get to move on. So let’s all move on.

There is NOTHING wrong with making mistakes, even making the same mistake multiple times. These things happen and no one is perfect. Let it go.

But, if you need to point out other people’s mistakes while completely ignoring your own, YOU have a problem. You can let that go, too!

When you find yourself dwelling on something someone else has done, stop thinking for a moment and feel what you feel, physically in your body.

Where is it? Stomach, chest, throat, neck, shoulders, etc…

What is the major emotion you’re feeling? Anger, resentment, exhaustion, etc.

Have you ever done anything wrong?

What did you do wrong?

Did you correct it immediately after the first event? No? Why? You’re human?

OH! Good to know.

Now, guess what… we’re all human. Let it go.

It’s So Hard To Let Go

I know, I know. Bless us everyone.

The reason we have such a hard time MENTALLY letting go of what no longer serves us, is that we’ve got enough of that energy stored in our physical body to power a battleship.

So, even if it FEELS big and difficult to let go of, it doesn’t have to be.

It feels like it will be hard and painful.

It feels like it will hurt and be scary.

You know what, it can be uncomfortable. But, that’s only temporary and you’ve been uncomfortable for a long time. What’s a few more minutes?

Mental / Emotional Detox

When we think of detoxing, folks probably think first of detoxifying their bodies, and yes, that is vitally important. But even more important than detoxing our bodies is detoxing our mind and emotions.

I’m always interested in the quickest and easiest solutions. I’ve done long, drawn out and complicated. I’m all in for peace and ease these days.

And when you learn to move the upset you feel physically through your body, you’ll find you’re less emotional, more confident and less easy to upset. It’s a beautiful thing!

I’m great at helping folks mentally and emotionally detoxify their lives.

Reach out for support and more ease in letting things go.

Friendly Reminder

Good day, my friends.

This is a friendly reminder that you are an infinite being living/playing in a loving world that’s constantly conspiring for your greatest good.

Now… we can see this, or we can see the opposite of this.

And whichever that is, is the way it will be for us. And make no mistake, it will be what you say it is.

So, what do you want it to be?

How do you want the world to be?

Do you want the things happening around you to be for the greatest good?

Do you want all of your previous struggles to be for your benefit?

Can you see how transition can be messy and scary? Have NEVER had a bad haircut? It’ll grow back. Promise.

I will absolutely admit to forgetting this Truth.

Welcome To Humanity

When we think of the idea that God or the Universe loves us like a father, I have to laugh. My fathering experience wasn’t warm, fuzzy and nurturing. My raising felt much like that of a baby giraffe, and consequently, that’s how I’ve lived my life. (More about this in an upcoming blog on Blind Spots)

I’m realizing now, more and more, how often I don’t fully feel like I live in a world that loves and supports me. That’s not a familiar feeling for me personally, and I highly doubt I’m the only one.

But, fortunately, I’m in the business of moving energy and being comfortable with uncomfortable feelings, so I’m not the least bit disturbed. I do move through the emotions of sadness, I’m still human.

I feel the familiar feeling in my solar plexus of being on my own, without support. I hold in my heart the version of myself that has shown up in this moment, needing that support, and I breathe. I say bless my heart. We all came here to have the experiences we have, so we can learn the things we came here to learn.

If I didn’t get that, I wouldn’t be this.

And I came here to be this.

I love you so much.

I’m happy to feel what I feel and have gone through every single thing I’ve gone through to be able to tell you, you’ll be ok.

You too can get through this, feeling more joy and confidence with a deeper level of understanding of yourself, your life path, and the entire situation. The moment you realize it, you can’t help but let it go. Yes, please and thank you!

And that’s all we have to do to make major changes in our lives.

Just let go.

Let got of all the shit that doesn’t serve you anymore. Let go of needing things to be different. Let go of needing things to have BEEN different. They weren’t. It was what it was, and now it’s over. Learn from it and move on.

Stop believing in the struggle. Stop struggling. Set it down, lay it down, feel through it, appreciate it for the great information it was then and is today, and let it go.

There’s nothing to hold onto. Only things to let go of.

We’ve spent a lifetime learning the wrong way of looking at things.

This Un-Learning will be the most powerfully important thing you’ll ever do.

As you do you’ll remember life is a game, and the reality of life is LOVE.

Love IS and everything else isn’t.

Here’s to taking decisive action and letting it go!

God Bless us every single one.

Listen To Yourself

2 little frogs sitting on a cantaloupe

The next time you’re having a conversation with someone in your own head, listen to yourself.

What are you mad about? What is the complaint? What did they do? What didn’t they do? What should they have done?

What are the general theme of these thoughts? Make a note of this, the story is less important.

Is it a recurring theme in your life?

Do these complaints revolve around the same type of situation? You get no respect, no one loves you, you’re always left holding the bag, you have to handle it, etc…

Someone not doing what they’re supposed to do? Someone not holding up their end of the bargain?

Are you not doing what you’re supposed to do? Are you not holding up your end of the bargain or relationship?

Now, where do you feel the sensation those questions, and the emotions they bring up, physically in your body?

Conscious Activity

I was cleaning up from some demo work we’re doing in the back yard. We’re taking down the roof of our shed that’s plywood, tar paper and 2 layers of shingles. And more nails than you can shake a stick at.

When we started I intended to catch as many nails as I could and be able to easily pick up any we might have missed.

As I was doing more clean up this morning sweeping and picking up trash, my eye was quickly and easily drawn to several nails in obscure areas.

It immediately caused me to think of WHY it happened so easily and what came to me was this…

My intention to be in peace and harmony (not stepping on a nail) and my intention for others enjoying my space to be in peace and harmony (also not stepping on a nail) caused me to vibrate at a frequency that, along with my participation in the expectation and conscious awareness of what I’m looking for, allowed my eyes to SEE what I was looking for. In this instance, rogue nails.

So, there can always be a reason and need to be focused in a way that’s opening the space for and empowering peace and harmony (pre-emptively clearing the nails), rather than projecting fear, defense and protection (creating the problem and then scaring folks into your solutions… look up The Hegelian Dialectic).

That would be like purposefully NOT picking up the nails and then telling someone walking barefoot in my yard, “Watch out! You’ll probably step on a rusty old nail and get tetanus for SURE!! Have fun!”

Or to bring it straight home… It’s exactly like our news media not reminding folks how to support their own immunity and providing easy steps to take that would head off illness immediately. But instead, what the news media and the pamphlet from the covid test (the PCR test was created without a sample of the actual covid virus, so it was never a true representation of who had what) DID say, was to go home and take cold medicine until you can’t breathe, then go to the Emergency Room. GREAT IDEA! Said NO ONE. EVER. WTF?

Fake test + false data + fear pushed by the media = covid.

Does this feel at all familiar to anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Can you feel the difference in those vibrations? Conscious preparation for peace and harmony or fear pushed for reasons of control.

Once you become aware, you can easily, with no fight or struggle, choose whichever you like.

When I think of what we’re seeing these days with the unconstitutional push to vaccinate everyone, even against a person’s free will, for a virus that has a 99% survivability rate, I see clearly the desperate grasp for control. I’ll say it again for those of you in the cheap seats… this virus has a 99%+ survival rate. That’s what science says.

Our military, law enforcement and healthcare workers being our first line of national defense should be 100% in control of their own health care decisions. This will not stand. Last time I checked we still lived in the United States of America.

The Simple Solution

So, how do we get around this crap? Move every bit of energy you have around every subject that comes up.

What are the conversations you keep having in your head? Who keeps doing what to you?

Be honest with yourself about what keeps you up at night. Acknowledge it in the day time. Say it out loud to yourself. Bring it into the light. Breathe deeply, be willing to soften around the worrisome thoughts or ideas and let them go. Solutions abound and readily present themselves when we shine light into those dark places.

Find the physical place in your body that feels the most uncomfortable when you’re thinking about whatever upsets you. Now, stop thinking and just be with that sensation in your body. Relax and breathe. Let the feeling pass. Support yourself mentally. Bless my heart. This too shall pass. I love you so much.

Do this every time you have an uncomfortable thought or feeling. Stop thinking. Put your brain aside and tell it you’ll think about it in a minute. Feel what you feel without thinking about why. Be your own best friend and kindest cheerleader. Speak to yourself as you’d have your child speak to themselves.

Are you getting the picture here? How’s it working for you?

If it’s not, get support. I’m here to help. Email me to schedule a session.

It’s very simple. But in the beginning it can be less than easy.

But, it CAN be easy and it will get easier with practice.

So, listen to yourself.

What are you thinking?

Confessions of a Conscious Creator

Everybody has problems. Every single person in this world has problems. So I thought I’d share some of my struggles with you.

Oh, hey hey, you say. I thought you were a Conscious Creator? It’s SIMPLE, you say! Create your own reality, you say!

How can someone have struggles if they’re so good at creating their own reality?

Welcome To Humanity!

Being a conscious creator doesn’t mean that you’ll never have another struggle ever again.

It does mean, however, that any struggle you face, you’ll see as a catalyst for your own growth. You won’t be totally upset by anything and it will give you a higher level of conscious awareness as to which direction you should go next to move yourself closer to what you want.

Some folks may think I don’t have any troubles, because I don’t talk about them. I really only complain about petty and non-meaningful things, quickly, and often, in jest.

In all honesty, we’re human, we’ve all got “problems”.

But, if I am really, REALLY upset or worried about something, NO ONE will EVER know.

It’s one of my tricks as a Conscious Creator to move as quickly as I can through difficulties, without including a bunch of folks in a storyline I’d rather not play out.

I’m not saying to not talk things through. What I am saying is be careful who you take into your confidence. Only share with folks that will allow you to move quickly through the hard parts to come to the best decision you can for yourself and your family.

I Confess

I say Bless my heart all the time. There are any number of scenarios that can play out during a day that might frustrate or irritate me. My answer to that is “Bless my heart!”. All day every day. This is what life is about. Moving quickly through the difficult bits. Acknowledging the minutiae and being kind to yourself makes it much easier to get through.

I promise to do better 20 times a day. Though I want to do my best every time, sometimes, I fall short. But, I don’t give myself a hard time. I breathe through, shake it off and tell myself, “I’ll do better next time” and often times do. 🙂

I have aches and pains that I have to stop my mind from making into a thing. My mind can be every bit as unruly as the next person. I just don’t give it any leeway. I understand we are vibrational beings living in a vibrational universe and I tell myself as much when my mind tries to convince me it “could” be something else.

I feel frustrated, irritated and overwhelmed sometimes. My life isn’t perfect. I don’t have everything I want. Many things can seem difficult for me. So, I don’t try to think about, worry over or fix any of them. I tell myself it’s all Energy and it’s all moving and it always eventually does. I don’t rush myself or make it a big deal when it takes longer than I’d like.

I often wish I could use my hands to change things, which is supremely frustrating because I know the most powerful and easiest way to make real and lasting change is by moving the energy. But, that doesn’t preclude me from thinking “I’ve got to DO something!” on a fairly regular basis.

I feel uncomfortable when moving through the energy of… not wanting something because it’s someone else’s idea, even though it may be a good idea. Oh my gosh. This is so childish. Yet, here I find myself sometimes.

I’m sure I could come up with plenty more, but we’ll leave it here for now.

This Is All Human Nature

Move through the energy of all negative upset by allowing yourself to feel what the emotion feels like physically in your body, without telling yourself a bunch of unhelpful stories about what those feelings mean and EVERYTHING changes. Whew. Yes, please and thank you!

I’m working on a Free Course to introduce these ideas and concepts on my newsletter if you’d like to jump in and be part of helping me create that.

I need your feedback. I want your feedback. I’m here to help and I want to know what you need.

Be so easy about things. Don’t make them a big deal. Relax more about it and let unsettled feelings pass before you take any action.

Any amount of effort you give to this endeavor will yield results. And small wins gather much momentum when you focus on them.

Here’s to it!
Much Love,
Crystal

Prayers for Humanity

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. I’ve been PRAYING a lot lately.

I hold the vision that each of us, in our own way, to our own higher power, are calling out for Peace and Love in the hearts of ALL during this most difficult time in our Nation’s history.

The way I pray now is much different than how I prayed when I was younger and had less understanding of the world, how it works and what God actually wants from me.

As a child my prayers always started like this…

Now I lay me, down to sleep
I pray the Lord, my soul to keep.
If I should die, before I wake.
I pray the Lord, my soul to take. 

Early Updates

I knew instinctively, at a very tender age that I couldn’t ask God for things that I didn’t also ask for other people. So, I added an addendum to my prayer…

Dear Lord,

Please forgive me of all my sins,
and forgive everyone else in the world of all their sins.

Please help me make it through the night,
and please help everyone else in the world make it through the night. 

I remember knowing, even as a small child, that not everyone was going to make it through the night. That when morning came, some people in the world would have passed away and some family would be sad about it. But, I prayed that prayer all the same. The reality of life would not stop me from asking for what I knew to be true and right and good.

I still say that prayer every night when I go to sleep. Same dang way. It always cracks me up and I am infinitely proud of my little small self for KNOWING that I want EVERYONE’S highest good. Whether I know or like them or agree with them or not.

It also has occurred to me that I’ve been praying for years for God to help us through this dark night. Whatever it is, for whomever. This dark night… we will make it through.

Current Happenings

I pray or meditate multiple times per day. When I’m irritated, upset, don’t know what to do, etc… I ask for clarity, guidance and support. I sit down and get still. I ask my higher power to be with me and help me make the best decision. This is also when I find the physical sensations of the emotional upset in my body and let it move. It’s a game changer. Everything is always working out.

I’ve added more addendums to my prayers …

Hey man! Walk with me, talk with me. (loving, friendly, familiar)
I want to see what you see.
I want to hear what you hear.
I want to say what you would have me say.
Be in my heart today, God.
Make me an instrument,
Of your Peace.
Of your Joy.
Of your Love.
All in your good time, God, not my time. 
YOUR will, not mine. 
I am open and available, thy will be done.
In Jesus name, I pray.
SO BE IT AND SO IT IS.

Whatever Works For You

You do you. Find your faith and pray joyful prayers of thanks for the good things you want for yourself and the entire world. Lay in the grass and breathe in Nature, and all the good there is in this world. Take a walk and wave to your neighbors, no matter what sign they have in their yard. Intend to see the world through God’s clear and loving eyes.

Say NO thank you, and turn off any news channel or personality that tries to divide you from ANYONE in your community. We need each other. Life is a team sport. We didn’t come here to agree on everything or to succeed alone. We came here to learn what we can and share it with others.

What I’ve learned and am trying to share is…

LOVE IS
and everything else, isn’t.
God IS LOVE
.

This is all you need to really understand, to let go of the negativity and divisiveness.
That mindset and narrative is a mistake, intended confusion. It’s not real.

What’s real is love, connection and community. If the folks you are watching aren’t emulating this you’re watching the wrong stuff.

If YOU are someone that IS projecting something OTHER than LOVE, connection and community, I’d get radically honest and ask myself why.

When people act ugly or say ugly things, it says EVERYTHING about their own state of mind, and nothing about any person or subject they are disparaging.

Energy is running pretty high these days, folks.

Keep breathing and keep looking for ways to calm and soothe the situation.

I’m here to help.
I love you so much!!

Getting Through Hard Times

We weren’t born onto this Earth to be perfect or to have perfect lives. How would we grow if things were always perfect? So learning to feel better when things look bad is key to transforming everything.

Two years ago this week Dionne began chemotherapy (along with doing many other natural things). Today she is healthy, so grateful, and happy to FEEL better. Every night when she’s able to turn over in her sleep or gets up to go to the bathroom and walks without pain she feels herself half asleep saying Thank You with every step. She remembers feeling really depressed when she was emotionally worried and physically hurting.

When you’re in pain, emotional or physical, your mind can’t focus positively. So learning how to support yourself in some key ways opens the door for big change with less effort than first thought necessary. The mental and emotional work she did while allowing support from Western medicine was paramount in her moving through her diagnosis with much more ease than many could believe.

You can only THINK as good as you FEEL.

Bless all our hearts.

How to Feel Better Now

I often write about moving the energy physically around emotions and have described the process many times. So I decided a couple days ago to make an audio to share with my newsletter folks and anyone that joins, as a gift. I have just gotten a new computer, as my old one slowly fades out of sight, and was practicing with my new equipment.

I didn’t initially intend to share this one. I didn’t AT ALL intend to share this one. The sound isn’t perfect. I bumped my mic. I didn’t say EXACTLY what I might have wanted to say. Because, duh, it was my first try and I was recording myself. OY. For those that don’t know me, I don’t necessarily like a lot of attention. I don’t like to have my picture taken, to be videoed, or to be recorded, because I sound like a country hick and I’ve been around enough to know how folks judge folks for things like not being perfect. Whoa. Hold on there. Who’s judging whom for not being perfect? That would be me… judging myself. See how this works?

Bless my heart. Bless all of our hearts. We’re not supposed to be perfect. We’re supposed to be as good as we can be, and do the best job we can, everyday, to get up and try again tomorrow. In my estimation, our objective is to see the world as God (The One True Infinite Creator, Universe, Spirit, whatever that means to YOU) sees it. Understanding that everything happens for a reason and we don’t always get to know why.

What others come into this life to experience and grow through is between them and their Higher Power and we have to soothe ourselves, and those around us, with kindness, gentleness, and support.

My parents lost a very wonderful young man yesterday. He worked for them on the ranch and was so kind, helpful, and sweet. I loved so much that they had him, and he had them. He struggled with things they knew about and probably more they had no clue of. The loss of that precious boy is being felt by so many. The idea of people suffering or struggling breaks my heart.

Clarity Through Pain

As I have felt through my own emotions and their corresponding physical sensations… my heart, heavy and aching, for him and his father/family, and my parents and his friends, my solar plexus in a knot. I feel a knot in my throat and find myself holding my breath. Usually during a thought that’s sad or looking at the situation from a very limited human perspective, instead of the way God sees it. Bless our Hearts.

When I notice this, I do this breathing exercise. I’ve talked about it a million times. It’s the thing that makes me feel better every time. It’s the thing that I want to share with as many people as possible so they can see and have the experience themselves of relief. From any emotion, from any sensation, relief. There’s plenty of brain science behind this, but from experience, I know.

When you FEEL better, you can THINK better.

And when you feel better, you can see there is support out there for you and that people love you and that we can get through anything. And with God, there is Grace. So whatever comes, it’ll all be ok.

Sharing My Process to Get You Through a Hard Time

So, I’m sharing it with you. Complete in it’s incompleteness. Perfect in it’s imperfection. My heart pounds now as I type this, thinking of sharing my first try. I grew up believing I should do everything right the first time. Let me just tell you that’s ridiculous. This isn’t the BEST I’ll ever do, but it’s a tool. And a powerful one at that. And tools don’t have to be perfect. They just have to work.

And in this moment I wish that he had had a tool to make him feel better. And the idea that I wouldn’t share something that might help someone because I don’t think it’s perfect is enough to make me share it, ready or not.

No one is perfect. Nothing is perfect. No life is perfect. Sometimes, things look and feel dark and difficult. But, there is always hope. If we can reach for a “just a little better” in difficult moments it will begin to ease. Soothing our body with this exercise will bypass the brain and begin to soften the body. Which will help shift our perspective and bring some relief.

So, do this breathing exercise and feel better. I love you. I want your complete and total health and happiness. Share this with whomever you think might need it, or use it, or share it themselves with someone in need.

Life can be good and YOU CAN FEEL GOOD. No matter what you’re going through and no matter what is happening in your life.

Disengaging From The Great Motivator – Part 3

Let’s look again at what fear actually is. It’s information. Really. A self fulfilling prophesy. Absolutely both.

So, what do we do with this fear? How do we use it to our benefit rather than letting it run our lives in a way that lowers our immune system and keeps us from making the best decisions for ourselves, based on our own knowledge of our hearts, minds and bodies?

The answer is this… pay attention and educate yourself.

Become aware of the motivations of others. Are they trying to set you free or are they controlling you?

Don’t blindly follow anyone off of a cliff. Keep your eyes peeled back and your britches on.

Let’s go through a couple ways fear is perpetuated.

THE GREAT MOTIVATOR EXPOSED

Projection 101

We don’t see the world as IT is, we see the world as WE are.

If we’re happy and well adjusted we’ll see things as such. But, if we lie, cheat and steal, we’ll think and accuse others of lying, cheating and stealing. When we do things wrong, we tend to think and accuse others of doing those same things.


Projection, the mental process by which people attribute to others what is in their own minds… At a social level, racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia, and other malignant “othering” mindsets have been attributed at least partly to projection.

Britannica.com

If you are accused of doing or BEING something you know you are not, there is nothing to worry about; don’t “buy in” mentally to the accusation. If you know your own heart, and I hope you do, you already know the truth.

Recognize that these are tactics used by people, both intentionally and unintentionally, to make you feel something. Usually, the effort is trying to elicit some lower emotion like guilt, shame, fear, worry or compliance.

So, if it has worked, and you are feeling upset or triggered… relax, breathe and move through the energy physically in your body while supporting yourself mentally. These can be hurtful and upsetting moments.

Give yourself the loving support you need to move through it and come to a clearer understanding of what’s actually happening.

Recognize that it’s your job to move your own energy around each upset you face, and notice if you’re projecting your own issues onto people around you.

If you are, no problem! It’s great to become aware of what’s going on and begin doing the work of “seeing about our own self”.

It’s nobody’s job to make you happy or keep you informed. Take command of your life and begin moving in the direction YOU want to go.

Also, now is the time to become well aware of the massive amounts of projection going on around us at all times. This group blaming that group and that group blaming this group, it’s never helpful.

Intend to see beyond the distractions and keep yourself centered.

What’s really going on? Who’s really doing what? What clear and factual evidence do we have on the whole subject, not just someone’s opinion? (And at this point the NEWS is just a few folks opinion, not many real facts included.)

Have you ever watched someone instigate a fight between two other people? Could you see their motivation?

What did the instigator have to gain? What DOES an instigator have to gain?

Spend more time asking yourself questions about your beliefs rather than just looking for more evidence that supports them. This is doubly important when we’re looking at negative beliefs that assume some one individual or a whole group of “like” people are the bad.

Gaslighting 101

You know what gaslighting is. You’ve had or watched another go through a love interest that was absolutely “crazy making”. Being the most attentive lover in one moment and lying and cheating with the next breath, all the while CONvincing the victim it’s their fault.

In my helping people move through difficult relationships, I have been given countless examples of this very behavior. “Can you believe they did that?” To which I’d respond, “Yes, I can.”

When you see it, it’s very clear, but when you’re in it, the story is very different.


Gaslighting is an insidious form of manipulation and psychological control. Victims of gaslighting are deliberately and systematically fed false information that leads them to question what they know to be true, often about themselves. They may end up doubting their memory, their perception, and even their sanity. Over time, a gaslighter’s manipulations can grow more complex and potent, making it increasingly difficult for the victim to see the truth.

Psychologytoday.com

Gaslighting has been a tool of totalitarianism for many years. Insisting on total devotion with no ability to question or dissent, even if the mandate is self destructive. Lies are repeated over and over until they are taken for truth. The way of communication is deceptive and coercive, leading you directly to the one CONclusion, that you aren’t allowed to investigate.

When you begin to notice that a very small group gains MORE money and MORE power while a large group loses freedom, you’re catching on to the game.

REMINDER

This feels like a great time to remind you, that you are a powerful, free will, individual that can be, do, and have whatever you want.

You have the right to ask questions, make your own decisions and follow your own highest path. No matter what anyone else does or wants you to do. Virtue signalers and moral grandstanders can take a hike.

It may sometimes feel as if you are controlled by others, but the tools I share with you, will put your freedom firmly into your own capable hands.

But more importantly, you’ll learn here with me, about the game that will set you free from all struggle and outside, unwanted control.

The Game is Conscious Creation and the way to win is by learning to navigate your energy and emotions. Let’s go!!

YOU Are in the Driver’s Seat

One of my sisters texted me the pic below, saying it was too good not to share, I agree wholeheartedly. Thank you, Dawnie! Tears flowed while my heart soared as I read this page. This is how I know truth.

Can you recognize what that feels like for you? Do you think that Love is the Truth? Or do you think Fear is the Truth?

Whatever you expect, is what you’re creating. Don’t worry, everyone else is doing the same thing.

You can turn to, accept and embrace LOVE in any and every moment. Releasing the fear, drama and anger for understanding, lightening up and laughing about previous upsets, which will support a more just and equitable world and environment for everyone.

But, you have to decide you’re sick and tired of being mad and blaming others for your own emotions. We’ve all been there, it’s no big deal. Just don’t LIVE there for goodness sake!!!

Take a deep breath and relax. Notice what you’re feeling physically in your body. Now read the following text, notice what your mind says about what you read.


From the book “Path of Empowerment – The Pleiadians with Barbara Marciniak”

Chapter – Healing on the Lines of Time

Health is wealth, and a well-fortified immune system is the key to good health, and the simple key to a strong immune system is happiness. The transformation of human consciousness calls for you to accept personal responsibility for your health and healing, for you are the one who is ultimately in charge of your body and your life.

As we mentioned, genuine feelings of love and appreciation for your body convey a positive message containing essential life-sustaining signals that result in excellent health. In contrast, engaging in feelings of doom and despair, loneliness, helplessness, denial, anger, resentment, jealousy, greed, and fear conveys a negative message that promotes discord within the physical function of the body. Negative attitudes bring about negative effects. Anger and hatred are the most damaging emotions because they close off the flow of life-force energy to the body. The ability to both give and receive love, in all its many shades of splendor, holds the true key to healing because it is the most life-sustaining and affirming form of emotional expression.

The decision to accept ultimate responsibility for creating your life experience will empower you toward attaining a state of mental clarity and physical vitality. For a few moments, quiet your mind, and after breathing deeply and rhythmically for a while, consider this important question: Is the world a dangerous, fear-ridden place or is it a great adventure filled with bountiful opportunities to awaken spiritual power and transcend established limitations?


What World do YOU Want to Live in?

We get to decide. It’s our choice. I know how to make it. Do you?

Are you making the choices you want to make or do you feel yourself going along just to get along?

You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do. (I know that got a few of you!) You CAN step out and into your true and glorious self, making your own best decisions and actually supporting a better world in doing so.

Create It

I’m in the process of sharing my online course in a new, more engaging and interactive with me format. The Energy Element – 7 Week Guide to Conscious Creation program will have weekly live coaching calls with Q&A’s. I’ve been talking to you guys about this for quite a while and I thought NOW is the time to offer a group program with live Q&A’s to support the energy of the entire collective conscious moving forward.

It is my intention to share my knowledge and understanding to support you on your journey of living free and loving your life. It’s easier than you think and I’m here and committed to helping you make it happen.

Registration will be limited so I can make sure to provide focused support. Things are coming together now and the course will begin a the beginning of September. I’m so excited to share this with you and I ask that you share with anyone you think is ready to be in command of their own vessel and to live their lives with more peace and ease.

It’s available and I can help.

Disengaging from the Great Motivator – Part 2

We are vibrational beings living in a vibrational universe.

Fully awakening to this fact will serve you very well on your journey of Conscious Creation by releasing your mind from Fear. Which is why I’m working right now on a program that will teach you what it means, and how to, “Move Energy” or in other words, release tension and anxiety from your body. I realize how powerfully important this skill is and everyone is capable of doing it, I’m going to show you how. Stay tuned.

In the last post, I pointed out how fear has been used by many as a system of control and ask you to think about how this system presents in your own life. Do you do it? Or do you notice all the ways it’s being done to you?

Your physical body is the most advanced form of measurement of consciousness in the universe. Your intuition is the purest form of truth and information available to you and learning this language is easier than you think and more powerful than you can imagine.

The real and true science explains more precisely than ever before that the world is actually responding to us. We are, in fact (everything is), atoms vibrating, oscillating fields of energy… ultimately vibration.

Would you take a scalpel and cut vibration from vibration? Would you feed a pill to vibration? Or would you just raise the vibrational frequency to get a different result?

It seems pretty simple to me, but, it all depends on your level of consciousness. To what extent do you choose to participate in drama and struggle? First you will engage in that behavior and do, and then you just won’t, no matter what. That’s the process of evolving into a Conscious Creator and where ever you are on your journey is perfect. We all have to do what we have to do.

But, not understanding what has been proven over and over, or just not knowing about it because the powers that be prefer the old systems of control (FEAR), doesn’t make it not so. Gravity works whether you understand it or not. Same goes with energy and vibration.

The Scientific Method

The truth is the truth and facts are facts. The scientific method has been the same for a long time. Ask a question, do your research, form a hypothesis, test it with experiments (results must be able to be replicated by others), analyze the data and report the conclusions.

Science is about questioning and testing, and, questioning and testing, and, peer reviewed studies, by multiple peers and groups. So, if only one group can produce the results, that doesn’t hold up. But, if multiple people or teams have the same findings, we know this to be true.

IF a team is FUNDED by folks with a vested interest in a particular outcome, scrutinize those results and have another team NOT FUNDED by those interests also perform the exact experiments. This is truth and these are facts.

The Process of Conscious Creation

From the inner/understanding that “we live in a dynamic vibrational universe and our thoughts, attention, focus, and the physical sensations of our emotions (our divine instrument panel) are guiding us to and through our experiences and we have the free will to choose”…

What feels like it would be most helpful and would move us in the direction of what we want? Focusing on fear, separation, doom and gloom, which absolutely creates more of that. OR, recognizing that it’s all energy and it’s all moving. Free will allows us to make our own choice. Can you begin to notice when you choose fear in your arguments and reasoning? Noticing is the first part of the process.

When someone (from friend to journalist) is telling a story that triggers a negative reaction, what would be your most beneficial response? React or reflect? Are you trying to create a better world or more of the same?

Noticing we have been baited with fear (over the top or worst case scenarios), and moving through what comes up for us (mentally, emotionally and physically) around that fear, we can shift the whole scenario.

By not “buying in” you’re taking your power back and taking big steps in shifting the Collective Conscious from it’s knee jerk fear based reactions. And when that happens, the triggering situations will slow and eventually stop. Simple as that. It’s a learning curve, that just needs to be started. Join us! Let’s live in a fear free world.

On the other side of that, if you really are afraid of what you’re being told, move through what comes up around it (mentally, emotionally and physically), and you can shift the whole scenario. Perhaps a traumatic childhood (or later) memory or experience keeps you mulling over the past and reliving painful stories. But, knowing what you’ve learned here on my blog, you can soften and relax around anything to live joyfully free of fear and anxiety.

It’s a win win situation. And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. You have more control over your physical reality that some folks WANT you to know.

You are the commander of your own vessel.
Others can only create in your reality to the extent you buy into or
are influenced by their opinions or demands. 

You can tell propaganda when it’s really shiny and wrapped up neatly by reporters being paid for their services. Don’t just take someone else’s word it. Dig deeper into what they are telling you. Are they supporting your feelings of fear or feelings of peace?

Fear and the promotion of fear is manipulation. Fear porn is an actual tactic, maybe you’ve seen any number of the films coming out of Hollyweird in the last 20 years? Don’t ask me, I stopped watching.

Awareness is Key.

I do my best to allow nature to be nature.

But, as I sit and enjoy being in my backyard and I watch the birds drinking, eating and hopping around, if I see my well fed and cared for neighbor’s cat lurking, ready to pounce on them, it would be pretty shitty of me to not sound an alarm.

On one hand, I could let nature take it’s course, but on the other hand if I have knowledge that can help people, then it would be my bad if I didn’t share that information. So, if you’re in a place to hear this, YAY for you. And ME!

Properly Dealing with Fear

Fear is information, just like the physical sensations you feel in your body. Information.

When we inner/understand this and begin seeing fear for what it is, we can make informed decisions about how to handle both the fear, and the perpetrators of that fear.

As a parent, if there is an emergency situation while you are with your children….
Do you freak out and tell them every negative scenario that could possibly happen?
Do you remind them constantly they are in danger?
Or do you, do your best to calm yourself and soothe them?
Will things run more smoothly if they are calm or upset?
Would there be any benefit at all to scaring or freaking out your own children? (I’ll let you think about parenting through fear on this question)

If you are a business owner or manager and there’s an emergency at work…
Do you immediately run around telling your employees that shit is hitting the fan and they should bend over and kiss their asses goodbye?
Would it be good for your business to make everyone afraid and nervous about what terrible thing could potentially happen?
Would there be any benefit at all to scaring the crap out of your employees?

As a parent, could you sit with your children and tell them everything is going to be alright? Could you hug them and breathe with them, and tell them that whatever happened, things will work out and we’ll all get through it?

As a business owner, could you tell your employees that “things happen”, but we keep moving forward. Could you calm fears and ease hearts and assure them that whatever was happening, we’ll get through it and be better for the knowledge we’ve gained through this adversity?

Which scenario do you think will bring better results? Which group is going to have a better experience and will have gained valuable insight into how to handle difficult situations the next time they arise? If you said the calm and soothed and supported group, you’re right. Duh.

No one makes great decisions while in fear. Add confusion on top of that and you’ve got a recipe for disaster.

It’s easy to see which authority figures are truly interested
in your best good,
by how they approach you with “bad” information.

If people truly care about your highest good, they’ll say the situation may be serious, but they’ll also offer perspectives, information and solutions that are actually good for and supportive of you and your best health, and they won’t curtail any of your God given rights and freedoms. Wow, Thanks!!

How to Know if You’re Being Manipulated

If someone is scaring you, they are manipulating you. Period. Bottom line. End of Story.

Maybe they are unaware of this fact and are scared of something, and mistakenly think that if you’re afraid, you’ll be safe too. Bless them. This is NOT how to keep people safe.

But, what if someone were consciously misleading you to keep you wrapped in fear and anxiety, which actually really just diminishes your ability to discern and weakens your immune system?

Could that happen? Who would do such a thing? What would be the benefit of misleading large groups of people through fear and trauma based programming?

If you know you’re creating your reality, you know that acting out of fear only creates more to be afraid of. Action taken from a vibration yields more of that vibration. So, take a moment to calm your body and mind to come to a place of greater clarity on the situation.

Fear creates more fear. Peace creates more peace. Decide what you want to experience more of and begin moving in that direction. Support is always available to those that want it.

Here’s to doing our part to truly support ourselves and our world in moving quickly through this tired, old, boring chapter of Fear and The Friends it Brings Along…. MORE FEAR.

Yes, Please and Thank you.
