Hey Deep Feelers!
I read something this morning that hits on some truths for us HSP's, Empath's and quite frankly all Deep Feelers and Thinkers! I have attached it below. After reading the article I decided I wanted to point out a few things that I felt would help us in dealing with the challenges that our sensitivities offer. Here goes.
I feel that learning how to ALLOW the overwhelm, confusion, emotions of others ( or the world ) that are enmeshing into our mind and body to MOVE THROUGH US and NOT BECOME US is the KEY WE NEED in order to have a deeper relationship with our own power and purpose for being here.
OUR OWN BROADER VISION of what WE WANT FOR OUR LIFE will not play out fully until we learn to do this.
It is here we will find the PEACE and PRESENCE and POWER that we have been seeking. This takes time and compassion for ourselves as we learn to not allow our deep empathy and knowing and sensing of other people's feelings to throw us too far into the Over or Under Giving Mode.
We will swing between both extreme's until we have learned balance. Learned self love. Learned what our happy place is between setting too strong of boundaries and also over-giving and over-doing. Both choices can lead us straight into the arms of exhaustion and even sickness.
When the overwhelm and exhaustion sets in, track back in your day ( or week ) and pinpoint where you swung too far to one side or the other. Then decide how you will handle the same or similar scenario differently in the future. Play it out in your mind. Journal about it. This will help you really understand how you give away yourself to loosely or hold your power too tightly. Both can knock on us hard. Make us emotional and sometimes lashing out or have us shutting down........or both.
We can do this! That middle place will reveal itself to us as a feeling that immediately puts us in alignment and as we keep watching and practicing managing our energy output and input we will become a much closer match to our VISION and DREAMS.
Keep going. Keep being compassionate and keep striving to understand how you tick. It is the best work you will ever do.
🧿 Empath Breakthrough Steps
1. Track what particular people or situations cause you to swing into overwhelm, emotional lashing out or shutting down.
2. Notice how you are feeling (quick check-ins) and the shifts in moods you have. Is it yours or someone else's? Ask yourself.
3. Practice allowing another's drama, story's and feelings to move through you. Saying to yourself "Isn't this interesting ", rather than how can I FIX, CHANGE or RESCUE this.. Close your eyes and move the energy through your field. Observe don't absorb. Making yourself a conduit for energy transformation, not a holding tank.
4. Observe how you swing. Too far to left (high emotion)? Too far to the right (shut down)? Decide where the middle is for you and take it with you into the situation that has you feeling at odds. Journal.
5. Have a strong VISION of where you are going with your own life. If you don't, you could be making other people's dreams come true at the expense of your own.
6. Play with your Vision consistently and know you have all that it takes to be the Newly RE-Imagined You. Dream small or big. This is your story and your life. Use your intuition on how you want to play in your vision. What honest and true role you want to have. Don't allow other people to tell you how to run you. Rely on your gut. You know what you are doing.
And remember.....We create our life, the people, circumstances and situations through a process that we are doing every minute of everyday. Thinking a clear thought or focus which automatically creates in us a feeling. This process brings forth the manna ( physical experience) in our lives. Keep you focus and feelings on your your Power. Your Presence. Your Peacefulness. Your Purposeful. Your Prosperity and refuse to gravel in the lower frequencies for very long.
Feeling Good is the Deal that Creates and Heals.
You GOT this!

14 Problems Only Empaths Will Understand.

Hey there RE-Imaginers!
I have been thinking this morning about "Allowing IN" the thing we are wanting and dreaming about creating in our world and our life. Speaking the words " I NOW ALLOW " and the difference in feeling that these words project out into the field, as compared to I AM CREATING, WANTING, NEEDING etc.
We typically come from a mindset of “ I need to do this to get that“ or “ I want to be this or think this way in order to create what I am visualizing “ and then we jump on the Linear Train and try to create from that mindset, but what about flipping ourselves onto the Flow Train of minding our Creation Station Store?
Taking the Linear Train is one way to get our stuff, you know, the things that we think we will feel better in the having of them, BUT how about we just FLIP the SCRIPT and FLOW by saying “ I now allow ____( whatever you are wanting to create ) __________to come to me Easily and Effortlessly " and then we just get on with the business of shelling those peas, changing that diaper or taking a happy, hippy hike in the woods. All the while allowing the Universal Manager of All Great and Groovy things to be in charge of the delivering of the goods.
All kinds of signs and situations will begin to show up to support us in the having of it, if we just ALLOW it in...and let the allowing do the healing of all the belief blocks that may be keeping our desires and dreams at a distance.
In other words. SPEAK the ALLOWING and lose the TRYING, WANTING or NEEDING TO CREATE IT, which carry a denser frequency. Allowance is a high frequency feeling and counters resistance that the words trying, wanting and needing can carry with them.
I NOW ALLOW _______(Your Dream, Idea, or Preference)_______ to come to me EASILY and EFFORTLESSLY.
FLIP THE SCRIPT and let me know what magic you and spirit create for yourself, your family and the world!
PS. Sorry about leaving the word "to" out of the last sentence and putting one too many in the first sentence, in the meme below. I am still working on learning how to perfect these memes. It' a trick.
Much of what looks like the world is falling apart is actually Ascension. What may look like the Apocalypse or Armageddon to the dying ego, is in fact Ascension to an awakening of the Soul. Everything that existed as part of the old paradigm and 3D ways of life, based on the myth of separation from Source and polarity consciousness, all the systems that upheld scarcity consciousness, fear, greed, racism, slavery (any form including debt and financial slavery), abuse, wars, human trafficking, environmental destruction, etc. are breaking down. What we are seeing crumbling before our eyes is a healing crisis en mass.
This is a death and rebirth process. The old needs to fall away to make space for the new, so that we can all exist and co-create a 5D world together, based on unity consciousness and connection/co-creation as and with Source, love, and the sacred union between the divine feminine and divine masculine- the two polarities that live within us all.
Clue me in if you find out who wrote this gem.
Understanding States of Consciousness: 3D, 4D 5D and More.....
By Tanaaz Chubb
There is no doubt that other dimensions or realms exist in this Universe. You may have seen them yourself through your dreams or through astral travel. You may have felt the experience of deja vu, or simply felt through a meditation that there is so much more to what we can comprehend. Just like we have different dimensions in this Universe, we also have different dimensional states of consciousness. These dimensions available to us on Earth are referred to as 3D, 4D and 5D. These dimensions are not actual places but rather they are states of consciousness. Here on Earth, we are all living life in either 3D, 4D, 5D or a combination of all three. In fact, it is most likely that majority of people on Earth are moving back and forth across two or three of these dimensional states of consciousness depending on where they are in their lives. Even though we are all living on the same planet and are surrounded by the same world, our perception of it will be different depending on which state of consciousness we are choosing to see things at. Those perceiving things from a 3D state are going to walk through life much differently to someone perceiving things from a 5D state.
Living from 3D State
Living from a 3D State 3D consciousness is viewing things from a purely physical state. You are seen as an individual that is separate from others. Life feels like “the survival of the fittest” and you are identified by the way you look, the job you have, the car you drive and the people you surround yourself with. You feel fearful about missing out or not having enough. Things are perceived as being good or bad and life is a competition. There is not enough for everyone and some people have to miss out. Fulfillment is found in making money and social status. Your thoughts have no power over your reality and what comes your way in life is simply a coincidence. You rely on your five senses to move through the world. There is a lot of joy in living life from the 3D state but pain and deeper emotions can be difficult to manage. In a 3D state there is no desire to go within or to look at things from a deeper stand point. Life is played out by skimming the surface. There is no desire to dig deep or to understand the deeper meaning behind things.
Living from a 4D State
Many people believe that the 4th dimensional state acts like a “gateway” to the 5th. When in 4D it is easy to travel back to a 3D state, however this jump in consciousness is much more difficult when you reach a 5D state. 4D consciousness begins to awaken to the idea that we are all connected and that there is more to life than what meets the eye. Thoughts are powerful and can shift the way reality is perceived. Duality and the idea of good and bad is still experienced, but there is more compassion and understanding behind it. There is an opening to the importance of diet, meditation and leading a healthy lifestyle. What you put into your body becomes important and there is a desire to pay attention to how your actions effect the environment and those around you. There is a strong desire to find your purpose and to follow your passions. You understand that life is meant to be enjoyed and that you are worthy to live the life of your dreams. You perceive the world through 6 senses and your intuition starts to grow and expand. You seek a deeper meaning to life and you can start to see the synchronicity/magic of the Universe.
Living from a 5D State
Once you reach a 5D state of consciousness, it is very difficult to go back to a 3D state. From this level of consciousness you begin to understand that we are all one and we are all connected. Life becomes an adventure of growth and there is no such thing as good or bad. There is a higher purpose for all things and every experience holds meaning. There are stronger feelings of love and connectedness with others, the planet and even the galaxies around us. Love and compassion reign supreme and there is a lack of judgement. You understand that everyone is just on their own journey. Everyone is considered to be equal and there is a desire to live from a place of pure authenticity. You understand that your purpose is to live your truth and to seek the joy. From this state, you know that there is no competition and there is enough in the Universe for everyone. You feel overwhelming emotions of love and compassion for life, Mother Earth and the stars. Your intuition is extremely strong and you feel connected to angelic beings. It is important to remember that these states of consciousness are not “better” or “worse” than the other. Every soul on this Earth has their own journey to walk and their own reasons for choosing which dimensional state to live from.
Even Higher States of Consciousness
What is more interesting than these dimensional states are the ones that come next. There are higher states of consciousness, but these are believed to be only accessible after we have left our physical bodies. It is possible however, to access these states through meditation, our dreams and even with certain herbs/plant medicines.
In higher states of consciousness there are 3 key differences –
So there you have it! A better understanding of the states of consciousness that we are expressing as ourselves! Remembering that these are descriptions of emotional perspectives and the beliefs that we hold. They are actually transient in nature and we are taking ourselves in and out of these with the very thoughts/feelings that we are choosing to have.
I hope that this was helpful to you and gives you a better understanding of the roles that people are playing in your life, perhaps their state of consciousness and your own! Again. We can travel in and out of these states on a daily basis and once we ground into one or two that we desire we will be able to maintain better alignment and more peace, presence, em-powerment and prosperity and become a closer match to the dreams that we are wanting to manifest. Eckhart Tolle says " Realize that nobody can act beyond their level of consciousness " and I would add to that " unless they decide they want to do the work that it takes to change their state. " Do You ? Have you already ?
Give me a call or text and let's work together to bring you into alignment with your best and highest self or just talk about what you have done to uplevel and where you want to go from here. Perhaps you would like to know what the next step spirit has for you, to bring your dream into manifestation or just have me tap into the energy of a certain situation in your life that you may need clarity or insight into.
l also can help you move any stuck energy that may be keeping you from your next big move toward the betterment of you! Always here and cheering for YOU!

l will be speaking at THE GLOBAL ONENESS PROJECT in New York City in just two short weeks! Monday Eve, May 13th @ 6:00 pm. Red Carpet and Networking starts @ 5:30. Shout out to those of you that hang your hat there or know someone that does and may want to take part in this event. Tickets are 20 buck-a-boos. Link below. The Global Oneness Project was created out of a passion for the respect, equality and connectivity of all human beings. The goal is to create a movement surrounded by the idea of oneness in the global community. In this age of the Internet and the world of digital media, the idea of “oneness” and connection becomes more and more important. Social responsibility to self, community and global society has become more critical than ever in our modern times. In my particular arena I will be speaking about the journey of integrating conflicting aspects of the self as part of creating the change necessary to bring more Oneness into the our World. Integration of our intuitive and rational aspects. You know... As with-in, So without kinda vibe. I also will be speaking about understanding ourselves as an energy system and how we "effect" our world and the choices we are faced with daily to create competitive or cohesive solutions to our greatest challenges. Soooooooo that's what's being served up on this end and there are more speakers that are speaking from their point of passion, as well.
Check out THE GLOBAL ONENESS PROJECT WEBSITE!

Here is a New Twist on New Years Resolutions that I found! Who wants to ROCK some spiritually literate resolutions this year?????? If you want to download a copy of them, I have provided a link at the bottom of the post! Have a fabulous 2019!
"Spiritually Literate New Year's Resolutions"
One of my favorite sources of spiritual wisdom is a book called Spiritual Literacy: Reading the Sacred in Everyday Life. In it, spiritual teachers Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat have chosen 650 brief readings, collected from the work of contemporary spiritual teachers, poets, nature writers, and activists, that reveal a spiritual perspective on everyday experience. They call these passages examples of spiritual literacy. Here's how the Brussats define that term:
"Life is a sacred adventure. Every day we encounter signs that point to the active presence of Spirit in the world around us. Spiritual literacy is the ability to read the signs written in the texts of our own experience. Whether viewed as a gift from God or a skill to be cultivated, this facility enables us to discern and decipher a world full of meaning. Spiritual literacy is practiced in all the world's wisdom traditions. From ancient times to today, spiritually literate people have been able to locate within their daily life points of connection with the sacred."
The Brussats also have a wonderful website called Spirituality and Practice: Resources for Spiritual Journeys and this list of what they call "Spiritually Literate New Year's Resolutions" comes from this site. While I'm not normally a fan of the practice of making resolutions at the start of a new year -- it's so easy to make them. forget them, and then go on as before -- I can't disagree with any of these ten and plan to keep this list out where I can be reminded of them periodically during the year -- and the years -- ahead. That said, what I like most about this list of resolutions is the sense that they are all actually spiritual practices to live by rather than yet another set of goals to accomplish.
Spiritually Literate New Year's Resolutions
By Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat
1. I will live in the present moment. I will not obsess about the past or worry about the future.
2. I will cultivate the art of making connections. I will pay attention to how my life is intimately related to all life on the planet.
3. I will be thankful for all the blessings in my life. I will spell out my days with a grammar of gratitude.
4. I will practice hospitality in a world where too often strangers are feared, enemies are hated, and the "other" is shunned. I will welcome guests and alien ideas with graciousness.
5. I will seek liberty and justice for all. I will work for a free and a fair world.
6. I will add to the planet's fund of good will by practicing little acts of kindness, brief words of encouragement, and manifold expressions of courtesy.
7. I will cultivate the skill of deep listening. I will remember that all things in the world want to be heard, as do the many voices inside me.
8. I will practice reverence for life by seeing the sacred in, with, and under all things of the world.
9. I will give up trying to hide, deny, or escape from my imperfections.
10. I will be willing to learn from the spiritual teachers all around me, however unlikely or unlike me they may be.
