Video: Connecting to Your Heart

Hello dear readers! Here is a short video I made with some tips to help you connect with your heart. This process was a huge mystery to me as I was raised with no knowledge of or connection to my heart, but it was connecting with my heart that truly healed me.

Wishing you love and connection today and always.

Pausing throughout the Day

In our harried lifestyles, it can be hard to take a moment and connect with your Self. I know I run, go, move around, get stressed, and lose touch with my heart and purpose on this planet frequently. It’s so easy to lose touch with who I am and why I’m here when there are schools, jobs, commutes, and dinner on the table.

Thankfully, there is one amazing tool that always brings me back to myself – breathing. Breathing can be done at anytime, anywhere. The breath connects our spirits with our bodies and calms our minds. It’s so simple yet so profound. 

The main trick is to notice when you are getting stressed and remember to breathe! I have friends who have apps on their Apple Watches to remind them to pause. I try to notice on my own. It can feel hard to stop and breathe when you’re feeling stressed or rushed, but you can breathe while still continuing about your daily duties. You only need to slow down and get still on the inside. 

Happy Breathing!

Video: My Healing Journey

Please enjoy my first official upload to my YouTube channel! Several people have asked me to share videos since they prefer to listen to/watch things rather than to read, so here you go! In this video I talk about highlights of my healing journey, including learning Reiki, learning how to listen to my heart, and my life-shifting experience of the Divine.

Hope you’re having a beautiful Sunday!

Timelines and Timeline Shifting

I wanted to write today about a topic that comes up a fair amount in spiritual circles, but is one I never heard about until I started exploring this world. A timeline, as far as I understand it, is a line of time that you experience. When we make different choices, we experience different outcomes and move into different timelines. In the total sense, everything that is happening is happening at once. We can choose what version of reality we experience by what we pay attention to, what we think about, and what we do. We can most easily change our timeline experience to a positive one by raising our vibration and aligning with love.

Timelines are a bit of a strange concept that have come to make total sense to me. When I first had my series of spiritual experiences, I had glimpses of alternate timelines. I once opened my computer to write a book that was not about spirituality at all, and as I started to write, I saw my entire future in one moment should I continue to write that book. It was as if I truly lived it. In this timeline, the book was not well-received and I lived out my life in a state of depression. I saw and felt it all. Needless to say, I closed my computer and decided not to write that book!

To me, that experience was a glimpse of an alternate timeline. I chose a different path and thus alighted on a different timeline. Sometimes this awareness has become confusing for me. I want to make the “best” choices with the most positive outcomes, but I can’t always know everything in this moment. The best I am able to do is to listen intently to my heart and follow it to the best of my ability. I can show up with love in my life. When I choose love, I align myself with a more positive timeline and hopefully even allow our collective timeline to experience greater and greater love. 

What do you think about timelines? Have you ever had an inkling about alternate timelines in your life?

I’ll leave you with a fun video from one of my favorite spiritual teachers on YouTube, Bridget Nielsen. Hope you enjoy!

My first YouTube Interview!

My dear friend and healer Intuitive Belle just had me on her YouTube channel for a discussion about balancing your spiritual practice with daily life, and about spirituality in general. It was a lot of fun and definitely something new for me.

Hope you enjoy!

Returning to the Heart

Thank you so much to those of who were following along on my journey in the hospital last week. I was admitted for three days and given all sorts of tests which came up clear, which was great news. They released me to the care of my primary care physician and a neurologist. So far most possibilities have been ruled out, but the numbness in my arm and my legs persists. 

In the end, the doctor asked me if I was experiencing anxiety or depression. I realized that while I became pretty good at taking care of myself before I had a family, becoming a mom, getting married, and working have really put my own well-being on the back burner. Maybe I wasn’t monitoring myself as much as I needed to be. Or maybe there is an underlying physical cause for this strange numbness.

Either way, I’m going to work on paying more attention to my heart, something I’ve done a lot of in my life but could always use more practice with. It’s easy for me to overthink and approach life through my mind only, especially when I’m stressed or I’m down about the state of the world. It takes time and awareness to remain centered in one’s heart, but it doesn’t have to be hard. It’s a muscle that strengthens with time and attention.

I have my follow-up appointment this morning, and we’ll see what they say. This weekend I’m also going to my acupuncturist whom I haven’t seen in a long time. I’ll be interested to hear what he thinks!

I’ll keep you posted. Hope you have a beautiful day!
