Good Girls Can Be Tenacious, but first... April 03 2019
As you know, I'm a self appointed Good Girl. While it is a badge worth wearing, it's not worth owning.
BEcause it can hold one back. If a goddess totally embraces her Good Girl persona, well then, she must always BE good. No more rebel, system buster, leader and more. For Good Girls over the decades, by society standards, are submissive and afraid, yes I said afraid, of shining their gorgeousness whether it be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual gorgeousness.
Let's stop this, shall we?
Why Stop BEing Just A Good Girl?
You are multi-faceted, yes? Can you not walk and chew gum at the same time? Of course of you can. Of course you can!
Singer and songwriter, Peggy Lee said it best in her song:
I can wash out forty four pairs of socks and have 'em hangin' out on the line
I can starch and iron two dozens shirts 'fore you can count from one to nine
I can scoop up a great big dipper full of lard from the drippin's can
Throw it in the skillet, go out and do my shopping, be back before it melts in the pan
'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again
I can rub and scrub til this old house is shinin' like a dime
Feed the baby, grease the car, and powder my face at the same time
Get all dressed up, go out and swing 'til four A.M. and then
Lay down at five, jump up at six, and start all over again
'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again
The Many Faces of Good Girls
Look around you. If you are sitting by yourself at the moment, google Goddess Faces. Every single one of those goddesses is different from the other. From skin color, to size, to hair, to age and well you get the idea. Each one is not only physically gorgeous, but exudes self confidence and quiet power that draws you in.
Each one of them tells a brilliant story; herstory. Each one of them is tenacious - having a quality of determination and never giving up or letting go.
Why? For she recognized her innate wisdom and needed to share it with others. Some via large platforms as public speaking, books and more. Some on a quieter more inner circle platform; for those with eyes to see and BE encouraged to BE their authentic self. Both have great value for each creates a ripple for others to give witness to and empower themselves to come out and play.
Each ripple creates more ripples. Before you know it, you ARE affecting so many more than you personally come in contact with. Therefore, what is the image you are putting forth?
Empowerment or Belittlement?
Things to ponder.
What Are Your Many Faces?
Now, I'm not talking about make-up vs. make-up less face. I'm talking about your face.
When you look at another, you can often get an immediate glimpse of their psyche at that particular moment. For example, I saw a practitioner yesterday and today. She is gleefully working on my shoulder.
Her first comment today was you look so different; calm more at peace.
While I had on my first time to meet you face on yesterday, the pain I was in was evident (it's a shoulder thing). Through her gifts she is helping muscles to relax; much less pain and therefore my face and body movements display that.
Look at yourself in the mirror. This is not a critique of what hairs are turning gray or wrinkles emerging or bags blossoming.
Instead it is a look into your soul. Is that soul happy? If it is, KUDOS to you!
If it is not, what could you do to lessen that load. What could you do to brighten your day? What could you do that says YES to you?
More things to ponder.
Look it, we've all had crap happen in our lives; death, dissolutions, arguments, illness (to self or loved one) and more.
On the flip side, we've all had glorious things happen in our lives; children, marriage, recognition for our innate gifts, sunny days, vacations, flowers, lollipops and unicorns (just making sure you are still reading ;) ).
It's what we focus on or allow to take over that can de-rail what we wish to do.
It's time to take a more in depth look into our psyche and remember our individaul WHYS.
- Why do I wish to this or that?
- Why do I wish this or that to happen?
- Why do I desire better health?
- Why do I desire more money and less bills?
- Why do I wish a partner to share my life?
Why bother doing all thinking thought provoking deep work? Because then you have answers. Then you gain greater clarity of what truly motivates you. Once you have answered the WHYS - it's important to keep asking in one arena until you hit a nerve that makes you think harder and more profoundly - you gain clarity. You gain and remember your tenacity. You move forward with great grace for now you have a mission and it is going to be much harder to derail you from this point forward.
What Angel to Call Upon for This Mission?
Uriel, Angel of Safety, once again comes forward.
Because he, like no other will help you to feel safe to BE you. The real you. The authentic you. The glorious you.
Focus on his energy coming forth in his mandala below. You are welcomed to meditate on its energy to help unleash what you have been hiding.
It's time for you to come out and play now.
Space Clearing 101 November 14 2018
I've had a few clients in recent days reach out and ask...
How Do I Clear My Space Energetically?
While I coach clients all day long on this very topic and could be another book I was told during meditation this morning to write this in hopes of helping you clear your space and prepare for 2019; The Breakthrough Year.
Why Do Spaces Need Clearing?
I know you clean or have your home cleaned. That is clean. Mr. Clean clean. However, energy is a completely different ball of wax.
Let's make it a bit more abstract. Have you ever avoided a place simply because it didn't feel good? On the flip side, have you flocked to a location simply because it felt yummy?
That's energy. People, buildings, animals and yes the even land hold energy. Who doesn't love feeling clean? Buildings, animals and land are no different and love BEing cleared of what is not serviceable. Think of a building, or any room in a building. It is typically those blessed corners; that stagnant energy is birthed. If left to its own devices the stagnancy builds and creeps into the space that is used. By the time it gets into a space and becomes noticeable, it becomes more difficult clear and to feel good in this space.
How do you know if your space requires clearing? Here are some clues that your space is in need of cleaning:
- It just plain feels yucky
- It has a smell that is not pleasant and no amount of cleaning gets rid of it
- You can't focus, in fact you feel very scattered
- Restless, sleep deprived and yet can't sleep
- Ahem, discussions aka arguments have increased
- Your pets avoid certain parts of your home
And so on.
All of these are lower energy indicators that at minimum have you stuck in your current state of affairs and can certainly lead to worse. Much worse.
Before you go rushing off to various corners to clear, keep in mind that lower/stagnant energy can land in a very prominent area of your home as well. In fact just recently a portal of crap emerged in our home. The location? At the bottom of the stairs leading into the kitchen. This location is like Grand Station; one goes through it several times daily. Therefore, it certainly did not pop up due to lack of energy. But pop up it did.
It smelled. It smelled so bad that a new litter box was purchased (the thinking was the plastic had absorbed the odors over the years) Didn't work. With the wedding, shows, clients, etc. I didn't pay close attention; my bad. So it grew in power and size. Oops.
Don't rush off to buy sage! I don't use it at all these days with the exception of the fire ceremonies with private weekend clients.
Why I do NOT use Sage
We lived in a beautiful home years ago in the Baltimore area. The original house had burned to the ground (first clue we ought not to have taken it). The original owners had divorced, neighbors thought them 'weird', well you get the idea. Luckily for us, we were renting.
From Day One my daughter and I heard voices from the woods behind the house that were shall we say, not pleasant. Neither of us would go out the back willingly at night. I planted crystals in the backyard in hopes to build a wall of energy to prevent the infiltration, but little did we know they were already in the house and deeply embedded.
I was still somewhat green behind the ears and did what I had done before; I saged the house.
The house did feel better; however, only for one or two days at best and then all hell would break loose. Arguments, more voices and getting work done on any level was a nice idea that never happened. Honestly it got worse than that, but won't bore you with the details.
It was then that I learned that sage can feed certain energies. YES, feed.
LUCKILY I had also just created the aromatherapy line and began to implement the energies of the Violet Flame courtesy of the Zadkiel Candle and honestly have not looked back since.
How to Clear your Space
There are many thoughts on space clearing and some situations clearly call for an expert and more tools. However, below is how I operate and it works for us.
First, this is not a ceremony that can be rushed or done in 20 minutes. Allow as much time as needed for your space. Quiet your mind and BEcome centered. If you bring anxiety to the ceremony, you will create more anxiety, etc. Play music, work in silence; whatever is best for you.
- Call on Big Mike to surround you and your space with protective energies.
- Grab two of my candles; Zadkiel for the Transmutative Energies AND another angel candle based on the intention for that space; healing, self love, harmony, etc. Why two? I admit, I'm lazy. IF the angels can work on my behalf while I'm clearing, why not?!
- Start on the top most floor (this includes your attic if accessible)
- Go to the 'far left corner' (this is based on your front door's location).
- Start in the far left corner of that room.
- Light the Zadkiel Candle.
- Light your Intention Candle and place as close as possible in the center of the room.
- Working in a counter clockwise motion. Linger or move as quickly as your soul guides you.
- IF it has been a while since your space has been cleared, open all drawers, closets, cabinetry, etc and clear those as well - lower energies love to hide.
- As you work in a counter clockwise pattern, use your hands, feathers or other tools to direct the Zadkiel candle's energy up, down, etc. It is not silly if you feel guided to do so.
Once that room is complete, repeat the pattern for every other room in your space. Always work in a counter clockwise motion; room to room and within each room.
Why counter clockwise? Think of it as unwinding the energy. Once the top floor is complete, repeat the pattern on any other level, always working downward.
What Kind of Results Can You Expect from Space Clearing?
In a nutshell; pristine, expansive calming and empowering energies.
As an example, years ago one of our daughters was at the beach house ahead of me. She was working on the day I arrived.
WOW I think, she cleaned the house.
I thanked her profusely when she came home. Mom, all I did was clear the space.
It's that powerful.
How Often Do You Need to Clear Your Space?
The answer to that is as varied as all those reading this post.
Company? Clear within 24 hours of their departure.
Client work? Clear weekly at minimum; ideally daily. You and your clients will be giddy.
Holidays? Double up! Before and after company arrivals.
Trauma locally, regionally, nationally, internationally that has affected you? Clear.
Sidebar prior to Space Clearing - Clutter Clearing
I'm a Clutter Clearing Nut so we don't often have loads of stuff to get rid of. However, with multiple moves under our belt, when it is time to clutter clear, this is the practice that works for me:
- Light the Zadkiel candle in the room I am tackling.
- Leave said room for a good 30 minutes or more. As I doing something else in our home, Zadkiel is quick to work and easily begins pointing out the various clothing, decor items, books etc. that need a new home.
Since Zadkiel is metaphorically fluffing up the unwanted energy, it becomes less painful to be rid of articles that are not serving us. I am better able to dis-engage from the emotional tie (grandma gave this to me kind of thing); knowing that I will always love grandma and I don't need it to prove my love for her.
I create a few piles; trash, keep, donate. The donation can also be a sell pile if we are so inclined to make a few bucks. I then make a call to a local donation center for a pick up and since I am still a Good Girl at heart and not desiring to disappoint, there is a pile waiting for them on pickup day.
Once the room is clear of all clutter, I then commence with the Space Clearing. It can frequently lead to wall painting, window cleaning, moving around the decor making the space feel more spacious, welcoming and protected.
Where to start? I start with a quiet room; a room that is not frequently used. That way I can go visit this new yummy energy and it encourages me to continue with the rest of our home.
I hope fervently that this blog has opened your eyes and soul and has prompted you to Clear Your Space!
