Engage Life with Gusto

I've never shared this publicly before: One of my greatest pains in life has been all the times I did not engage life with gusto. There are many many things that I have been innately drawn to, interested in and rang with intense resonance in my Being, but that I did not pursue with my full energy and desire. And, the thing is, I would have liked to. It's never too late. I think when we put both feet in and really go for it, we are engaging with the full potential of life.

So what hold's me/you back? :
* self doubt
* feeling undeserving
* talking yourself out of it
* habits of staying within your comfort zone

Some of my childhood 'likes' I have pursued as an adult: yoga, nature, native american ways, dance and art. But I still struggle at times with pursuing them with gusto. It's a step, but I'd like to give myself more. And that's really a truth give yourself more when you go full force ahead towards an interest, dream or experience you'd like to have. Going at it half-assed, keeps the experience/the energy & potential in a smaller container.

What it takes to engage life with gusto:
* courage
* self love
* committment
* will power

 Results of engaging life with gusto:
* empowerment
* greater confidence
* connection with self & others
* magic & beauty  (the universe responds as you step forward into who you are)

I'm just touching on this subject here, I know. But, hopefully it will inspire you to claim this life that is yours, live it as fully as you can, and thereby experience all the beauty, fun, and abundance that is available to you. Perhaps choose one thing that you'd like to experience/learn or experience/learn more of, and focus on that first. Maybe there's something you've been wanting to do, a class you've been wanting to take for like the past 5 years and haven't. Let's engage with life now. xox

I was watching an episode of Saving Hope the other night, and my heart opened widely at one monologue: A girl out of her body in spirit form, but returning to it, described how it felt, "I can feel my body. It's calling me back. ....I'm connected to everything, everyone. It's warm. It's wonderful. It's Life." It moved me to tears. To be honest, as a sensitive, open person, life has often felt unsafe, and full of heartache. So this moment in the TV show, was a surprise! Life as warm, connected...etc. yes! XO I'm all up for that. Since writing this post, Saving hope has been taken off the air, but you can get it through and probably Netflix as well. The scene I mention here is in Season 1, Episode 7, at minute 36:51 of the program. Another aspect of being able to fully engage with gusto, is honoring your own radiance. See this week's guided message for more on that: or HERE.

Many blessings to you!
p.s. Uncover your radiance in my online program, the Chakra Intuitive Intensive. Still 4 spots available as of July 22, 2012!

Energy: Expanding Your Intuitive Abilities & Self Knowing

For many years I didn't know that I was so intuitive, clairvoyant, clairsentient, telepathic..etc. As a child, I was not surrounded by anyone who would know of such things. The closest I had were the stories of Jesus and now I understand why I latched on & resonated with the mysticism & healing so readily & easily even as a young child. I spent many a day outside talking to trees, and trying to heal or have an effect on things with my hands & Jesus ya know. He said 'be like me' after all, so I never doubted that I could.

But it wasn't until I began delving into energy healing in my 20's that I came to know myself, that I began to understand myself, connect with others like me, and experience affirmation. Becoming present to my own energy both affirmed and expanded my intuitive abilities and it can for you too.

Tapping into and opening to the realm of energy connects you with the essence of who you are, to the 'communication space' of Spirit, and to the interconnection of all things. So if you want to open & expand your intuition, first open to the realm of energy within & around you. Some ways to do this are:

* Practicing presence - slow down - take a breath
* Meditating- practice being in the 'observer' space
* Relaxing - let go - have fun
* Nurturing your connection & awareness of energy - Chi Gong - Receiving energy medicine
* Imagine -imagination is a doorway to real experience with all that is unseen

Connection & awareness of energy is like stepping into the deeper beauty of this universe and of yourself. When you know yourself in this way, you access your divine being, and it is so beautiful, empowering and affirming. My heart just warms & swells writing this to you, because it is amazingly beautiful and I want so much for you to know it.

PRACTICE EXERCISE: Relax, slow down, breathe, become present. Now imagine that there is a beautiful crystal inside you. Spend 2-3 minutes just imagining. See this beautiful crystal, radiating with light. Allow it's beauty to expand within you. What color(s) do you see? Just observe, enjoy, receive and acknowledge that this beauty is you.
