To find yourself in gratitude is a gift. When we are feeling stress, anxiety or depression, getting into a state of gratitude can help. It’s all about changing your state for success. If you constantly complain about what you don’t have, what you can’t do, what you want but can’t afford your are in a place of lack and limitation. You are providing fertile soil for limitation to come into your life. You lose track of that fact that you have a roof over your head, food on your plate, a child in college and that despite some of lifes challenges there is still greatness all around me.
How many happy people do you know that are grateful?

Bringing gratitude into your life is as easy as saying, ‘thank you’. Saying it when someone opens the door for you. Saying ‘thank you’ when someon hands you your change or saying it just because you are thankful. Show appreciation, it’s free and it feels good.
One of my best tips for bringing more gratitude into your life is to make a gratitude list. It will be easy with all the ‘big’ things, but as you continue to do it you’ll find that there are the things that seemed inconsequental before now become something you are grateful for. I’ve been grateful for a pair of new shoes, finding money on the ground and having a great day. Start with ten things that you are grateful for. I suggest doing your lists when you wake up and right before you go to sleep at night. Make sure you write it down as it anchors the gratitude deeper into you.
Start here, and remember to fill your every moment with gratitude.
Energetic Hygiene is great for everyone. Especially those that are more sensitive, healers, empaths, psychics or shamans. It is something that isn’t often talked about but it has a profound effect on the state of the individual.
Taking a physical shower works to keep you clean. You have your differnts soaps and cleansers to cleanse any dirt, and grime from the skin and/or face, to re-fresh yourself. It’s a part of everyday life. We wash our hands, use hand sanitizers and mouthwash. To keep us feeling fresh and yet we ignore the auric field, the invisible electromanetic field that surrounds the body.This is also a part of our system. When it is compromised or filled with debris it can begin to effect us in our everyday lives.
Begin to pay attention to the aura. It’s like giving yourself an energy shower. I usually get a tupperware container filled with baking soda and put it in the shower with me. I put a handfull in my hands, wet it a bit spread it from my head down to my feet. I can feel it instantly lift of any energetic debris that is in my auric field. Think of it as clearing the psychic dirt. I remember, the first time I did it. I slept amazing that night and woke up totally refreshed. It literally felt like a weight had lifted off of me.
Now as I said, anyone can do this. If you are a healer, massage therapists, psychic, mystic etc. This will benefit you immensly and I suggest even using the baking soda on your hands up to your elbow after you work on a client.
Simple techniques that can be used daily to cleanse your auric field. What We know that baking soda a.k.a. Sodium Bicarbonate can be used for a variety of things. I’ve used baking soda for years. I use it every evening once I’ve gotten home and sometimes on days when I really feel like there’s been a bit of heaviness that particular day.
There’s a variey of baking sodas out there and I suggest buying the one that’s aluminum free for the purity.

I recently went to Buddhist ceremony in Chiang Mai, Thailand called Makha, celebrating the life and death of the Buddha at the same time. Coincidently, it was Valentine’s day. I remember standing there in the celebration with an ocean of candles. The scent of the incense burning filled the air, buddhist monks chanting and I was surrounded by thousands of candles, each one burning brightly. The breeze was blowing, and a man knocked over one of the candles. It went out and then I realized there were a thousand more to re-ignite it.
When we think of dimming our light, extinguishing it or finding ways not to shine as brightly as we could. We are doing a dis-service to ourselves and to those in our lives. When you decide to embrace your full light, to ‘come out of the closet’ that is when others around you begin to ignite their light, others around them ignite their flame and so forth. We become a sea of candles, not floating, but riding the current, all on the same path towards greatness.
There are many ways to ignite your flame. To get you started it’s important to find your passion and live it fully. Not what society wants, family or friends or even what you think is the ‘right’ job. What do you feel? What ignites you? What have you always wanted to do but scares the light out of you? How are you not doing what you are suppossed to be doing? And how can’t you not do it?
Immerse yourself in the work you want to do and find role models, mentors, people that are constantly and always improving. There are few on this earth who have not followed in the footsteps of another or was inspired by someone. This is a great tool to use. Whether you want to be a lawyer, healer, entreprenuer, blogger, artist, amazing parent, or activist. There will always be someon there to guide you via person to person or books. Remember, the support you need is always there. If you are truly on your path, everthing and everyone that you require will present itself with a little patience.
Secondly, take action. The boat will never set sail until you buy the wood to create it. Begin to build your dreams. Buy a website, write a book, take classes and promote yourself(this can be a hard one for some)etc. Whatever it is that you decided to do take action. It’s important that you anchor your passion, plant the seeds for your success. If it succeeds at first, great and if it fails then take the lessons to build on your success. I’ve said this before, ‘If you never try, you will always fail.’
Lastly, Fear will most likely be one of your biggest competitors. Overcome it. Try not to listen to other’s negative comments about your work, business venture, and/or new path. This is your flame, not theirs. You have your own challenges to overcome. So Stay focused and get out of your own way. Most likely, you will have indavertantly enlightened their flame.
Enjoy the journey.
I’ve recently moved across the world to Chiang Mai, Thailand. I went all the way out of my comfort zone. In fact, let’s step outside of it, ALWAYS. Comfort zones can be a little too comfortable. So much so that one can become complacent, feeling tinges of fear anytime change may show it’s ‘ugly’ face.
In life, we must maintain our evolution by consistently overcoming anything we fear. Fear can stagnate the muscles of your life, making it difficult to attain even the most simple goal. Fear can take your options down to nothing and prevent from any success in your future.
Working out the fear is like stretching your muscles. Taking time get your body lean, strong and flexible to meet life. It is truly an exercise in courage.
That’s why it is important to constantly stretch yourself. Take the yoga class you’ve always wanted to, sign up for martial arts is thats what you want or simply take the leap into something that you’ve always wanted to. The worst that can happen is that you’ll decide it wasn’t for you. If you never try, you will always fail, guaranteed. The more you take on those little fears, you begin to chip away at the big ones and all of a sudden the fears that you thought were so big were really just an illusion. Your fears, a mere reminder that you have been standing still for far too long and it’s now time to take action
On some level, everything in existense has energy. The energy of love, gratitude,joy,safety and even anger all resonate on specific frequencies. Working with crystals and stones can help to remind one of their prtotective forces that are natually within, keeping us at a vibration that doesn’t resonate with lower energies.
When I first began to work with the stones at a very young age. I thought they were pretty little crystal babies. I had no idea as a child that the amethyst and quartz crystals that I was buying were actually assisting me in protecting myself and helping along me along my evolution.
In all my Energy Healing Sessions, I use Crystal Healing Therapy. Crystals play a huge part in the work that I do and in no way am I saying that the stones are doing all the work. In the end, you have free will and it’s up to you to support and empower your boundaries.
Let’s start off with what I call the ‘Cardinal Protection Stone’, Black Tourmaline.
It helps to keep the goodness in while keeping lower energies out. In my experience, Not only is it great for protection but it can also assist in grounding oneself into the body as well as help to relieve the energy system from stress. This is one stone that I carry with me almost everyday.
Amethyst, a quartz based crystal has the energy of the violet flame of transmutation, raising and clearing negative energies and transmuting them into light. I’ve personally it in my Energy Healing Sessioins to assist in worry, anxiety. It’s also great to sleep with at night for a little extra comfort. In addition, it can help to develop psychic abilities and assist during meditation in safe and protected way.
Labradorite has to be one of my favorite stones. What caught my eye at first was the ‘labradorescense’ or spectrolite of the stone. Labradorite helps to ‘beef up’ the aura in a way that any holes or gaps in the aura are filled by the energies of Labradorite. It’s as if the shield comes from within the aura re-inforcing and making it far more difficult to become energy drained by others and protecting against lower vibes that may try to enter your space. This is a great stone for healers.
There’s a few of my favorites, and make sure that before you work with any crystal or stone that they are cleansed properly.
I’ve had the opportunity work with many people that require a little change of perception. When we walk into a problem its very easy to see it head on, for what ‘it is’. But what it might be is something else.
Let us introduce the power of changing your perception(essentially we are changing the filter in which we view things). Each of us knows how to use a filter all too well. Think of photography as the photographer changes lenses or filters to get a different shot. Also think of instagram or the billions of selfies that are seen across social media. We use those filters to make ourselves or the environment appear a particular way. The filters in which we view things change the way we percieve them.
For instance, think of someone that has recently lost their job. They feel upset, lost and defeated. The best that you can do for that friend is to offer them a new way to look at it.
Try saying , ‘maybe this is the perfect time to go out there and get the job you really want’ or ‘I wish I had some free time to clear my head’.
You don’t have to be positive all the time. Just offer them a new filter/way to see the experience through.
It’s about each of us being flexible in our perception. The more caught up we get with our disempowering filters the less opportunities we have for success and a happy life.
Try it. If something doesn’t go as planned change your filter and change your life for the better.
I recently traveled across the world to Chiang Mai, Thailand where I now live. I’ve crossed Ley Lines, times zones , and the International Dateline. To be exact, I’m 15 hours and one day ahead of Los Angeles, California. It’s a lot on the body and spirit to move across the world, yet there is still work to be done, and ways to calm the system along the way.
We all know that flying on an airplane can be heavy on the system with the constant exposure to radiation and EMF’s. Some can deal with it better than others and when you are sensitive to energies it can be a challenge. Luckily, there are ways to soften the experience. As I’ve said before, we are mult-dimensional beings existing in more than one plane. What I mean by this is that we have an EMF field or an Aura that surrounds the physical body that acts as a protective sheath. It is mostly invisible to the naked eye but can be seen via Kirilian Photography. In addition, Many psychics, healers, and mystics are also able to see it.
When we are on planes we are being bombarded by incoherent and disorganized EMF frequencies. Also, when you cross time zones, ley lines or even the international dateline it can throw off your grounded connection to the earth. This can place stress on our personal EMF field. In my experience, I’ve been on a flight for 16 hours and was fine the first five but as the time went on I started to feel tense, tense and more tense. My stomach went into knots and I couldn’t relax, nor could I sleep.
If you are sensitive, then here are some tools that I have used that have helped me tremendously.
First of all, I always carry Hematite with me. It acts as an anchor the earth so that even though you are flying high you are still connected to earth. There are other grounding stones but I’ve found that hematite necklaces, rings, tumbled stones, really load up on it.
Another of my favs would be black tourmaline, It keeps in all the goodness and keeps all the pesky lower incoherent energies out. It is also a grounding stone.
In addition, try fluorite. Remember, I spoke about disorganized energies bombarding your personal EMF. Well this adds a clarity and organization to your energy field, helping to protect, bolster and to focus your Aura.
Try to mix in other stones as you see fit and figure out what combos work best for you. Keep in mind, I’m just the ‘map maker’ it’s your decision on how you want to get there.
Gratitude is one of the most powerful forces in the universe. Oftentimes, one will go through their day and take much for granted. The smallest blessing is a blessing and when we begin to realize that. The splendor in life soon follows. I’ve often spoke about meditation and it’s benefits. Most times you have to set aside your meditation time. But being grateful can happen anywhere, anytime.
It can be at the grocery store in the checkout line, the restaurant, and it can even be while you are work. Fill your day with gratitude.
One of the most important techniques I use to infuse gratitude into my experience is by doing a gratitude list each evening before I go to sleep. The morning works just as well but the evening works for me. I write down a list of ten things I’m grateful for. I really get into it. Kinda like a gratitude meditation. I suggest writing a list of at least ten things that you are grateful for. It can be anything. My advice, pen and paper. I know a computer can be easier but there’s something about pen to paper that really solidifies the energy. Once you begin to do this, pay attention to your days. How are things going when you resonate with gratitude? And if you skip your gratitude list? How does your day go?
Your gratitude practice can start this very moment. Take the time each day to infuse gratitude into your life and watch hte magic happen.
