Manifesting: Femifesting a Hawaii Trip

I’m so excited I can’t stop yelling, “Whaa-whoo!” I manifested/FEMifested a fully funded Maui, Hawaiian voyage! Yes! I’m going to Hawaii! As a Trekkie and Star Trek fan, I consider myself Captain of the Starship LightWorkers Gifts! I got so excited I am using a new word – FEMifest! Manifesting plus FEMifesting is the balance of male and female energy. It is Yin added to Yang bringing together amazing, limitless creativity. It is allowing, flowing and weaving fun! As a friend and student says, “All we have to do is PLAY!”

I want to share with YOU the three actions I focused on to bring this desire into my reality.

1. Speak out loud and state your desire. I used post-it notes as a reminder. I wrote it, doodled it and typed it. I affirmed my desire with my voice every time I saw a post-it note and read the words out loud. It was similar to repeating affirmations; a constant self reminder of my desire. Whenever a conversation was about Hawaii I would say aloud or to myself, “I am so excited to share a Reiki attunement in Hawaii with my dear friend/student.” It was powerful and felt awesome! I would repeatedly say it. I wrote about it as though it were a story. I would speak it while doing Tai Chi. 

2. Feel it. Visualizing my desire I aligned myself with the energy of the experience. I remembered Maui and Hana from years ago. That memory helped me to fully feel Hawaii. I visualized the sunsets, whale watching, enjoying a Blue Moon margarita and just enjoying the freedom to PLAY, laugh and have fun! I imagined once again how fresh the air smelled and the sweet smell of island plants. I visualized this at every opportunity. When doing tasks such as brushing my teeth, waiting for a text message or waiting for the computer to boot up, I imagined myself having fun in Hawaii.

3. Appreciation and letting go. I expressed appreciation for everything in my life. As I did I could feel my vibration growing. Again speaking aloud, I stated appreciation such as, “Thank-you, Thank-you! I can’t wait to start packing for my trip to Hawaii! I appreciate the opportunity to go to Hawaii with my friend and I appreciate the great time we’re going to have. I appreciate the opportunity for the beautiful spiritual journey that my friend and I will both enjoy.” Being so certain of the outcome, I let go of heavier vibrations like feeling anxious. Consciously living in the moment I would smile often at the experience I was creating.

I know these three tips brought about the manifestation/FEMifestation of my desire. I’m thrilled because I’m going to go PLAY in Hawaii! I’ll be a Hawaiian Reiki Master, Coaching, guiding and sharing my gifts with a friend and Reiki student. There will be many fun experiences for us. And a special bonus is included – I will see some old friends too!

Femifesting Rocks!

Energy of Words: You Create What You Speak

Do you get frustrated when you drive? Have you ever flipped anyone off while driving? Do you often speak in a negative way to others and to yourself?

aracingWhen I was a kid, I noticed when Mama drove we didn’t see any bad driving. However, when I was with my uncle, nobody knew how to drive. My uncle would yell and scream at the other drivers, it was not pleasant to ride with him. It made me wonder why? It became clear to me later, that my uncle was giving voice to his negative energy, and it was actually bringing those drivers to us.

So the energy that you send out will always find its way back to you, in some way. Consider the other drivers; do you really know what is going on with them? They may be on the way to the hospital, or have just had an argument with someone. It’s not a personal attack on you. However, I see this in my Coaching sessions as well, with clients taking other people’s actions personally.

Stop and listen to what you say, as if you were outside of yourself.  Before you speak, take a moment and assess the situation. What energy do you really want to share? Be mindful of the energy that you send out because it comes back to you.

heartIn my Coaching sessions and Gatherings, I often hear self doubt. They say “I don’t like this about myself”, or “I am not very good at that”. Also, in Tai Chi class I hear, “I am not very coordinated”. Self talk creates your life, because what you say is what you become. The sub conscious is always listening and is responding to your every word, and believes everything it is told.  The universe is always matching your desires. So speak with loving ease to yourself.

Before you send out more energy via your words, I challenge you to listen to yourself. Really listen, maybe in front of the mirror. Would you talk to anyone else the way that you are speaking to and of yourself?  See and hear your energy. I would love to help you, to focus your energy, so that when it comes back to you, it will bring joy with it.

Relationships: Energy Shifts

Are you seeing your relationship with others changing or are you having relationship challenges?  Do you keep repeating in your mind how you could have done it differently?  Do you feel like you just want to hide from everyone?  Recently I have been experiencing this in my personal life and in my Coaching practices.
relationships BlogAll relationships are changing and in fact are always in a state of change.  Relationship challenges are a reflection of who we are because we are always shifting, growing and in constant state of movement.  So, as this is happening we might feel stuck.  We might feel unworthy, depressed or just do not want to accept the situation.  I believe we are more aware of our feelings right now and we see our old patterns re-emerging.  Our emotions are all over the place and many are experiencing self anger.  We might be angry for staying in a relationship too long or perhaps not creating better boundaries.  It does not matter how intelligent we are or how much we understand what is going on.  In relationships it’s the emotions; it’s all about the emotions. Most of us want to feel joy, happiness, love and excitement.
Lots of times we do not always have the tools or techniques that might help release these emotions.  Changing how we feel by working with our emotions helps us feel and see more clearly.  Shifting your energy is as easy as the clouds moving across the sky.  For instance, when a child wants to change their frequency they will usually scream; when a dog wants to release energy they will shake, bark or yowl. They just allow their energy to flow out of them.
Here are some tips that may help you shift your energy when you are with other people:
-Be aware of your own energy and how you feel
-Breathe; relax your physical body
-Listen attentively and really hear others
-Speak with love; ask your Higher Self for guidance
-Use your intuition; go with your gut feeling
Here are some tips to shift your energy immediately at anytime:
-Breathe deeply; focus on the moment
-Clap your hands, laugh, sing, dance, Tai Chi, Mediate
-Go outdoors; visit Mother Earth, Divine Presence
-Practice appreciation, Cry when you want
-Clear your Space, Reiki, Listen to your inner Psychic
It’s always the action that will help shift your reality.  Also, speaking out loud tells the universe what you want. Law of attraction is always working. If you would like some help and are ready to change your reality?? It’s time for a Coaching session or maybe healing energy session.

Peace, Community & Spirituality

Have you been to the movies lately? Have you seen a 3-D movie? Do you agree our energy vibrations in the movies are on overload these days? So much action, special effects and real-life situations are coming at us on the big screen.

spiritHave you seen “Fast and Furious” or “Star Trek” yet? About an hour into these movies it was time for me to get up and stretch. While in a Tai Chi stance, focusing on breathing and relaxing my physical body, it was interesting to note the difference between the violent energy of the movie and the emotional energy of movie.

I really enjoyed the frequency of loyalty and family in both of these movies, I would describe it as comforting, safe and powerful. I see our society changing; it seems that more and more people are asking about Energy, Chakras, Coaching and Reiki. I also see and feel from my Coaching clients that we are searching for community, a community that feels safe, a community that we can call home.  A place that we can be our authentic self’s.

Are you feeling driven to understand your spirituality or what a Lightworker is? Are you wanting to look within and start working on yourself? I feel so honored to be in the community of Lightworkers. I believe there is a shift that is bringing us all together here in Phoenix and also globally. We are working together and I see the loyalty and the pride and passion to help others. We are raising the Universal Energy and it’s so beautiful. Join the Community Spirit NOW!
Blessings Angel Marie & Shine

Meditation: Tips on How to Breathe

Do you meditate or have you tried meditation and found it challenging?  Did you know meditation need not be complicated or even lengthy?  Would you believe it is scientifically proven that regular meditation has the ability to positively improve the quality of life for individuals who practice it?  There are also studies that show large groups of people meditating can diminish world aggression.

Simplistically stated, meditation is the practice of quieting the mind, focusing and being in the present moment.  We are all familiar with the most common benefits, such as the ability to be relaxed, calm and focused.  Did you know even a few minutes of meditation has many other benefits?  Meditation helps develop positive emotions and increases your chi (life force energy).  Where can you use these benefits?  Many of us are in the work force and this may be the ideal place to use meditation.  Taking a few minutes alone or developing focus on mundane tasks may change your outlook on your job in general or with projects you work on.  You may be surprised to find you are more able to tackle the challenging parts of your job with greater success when regularly practicing these short periods of meditation. Did you know that Tai Chi is a meditation in motion?

·        Breathing – Take slow deep breathes that extend your belly.  This type of breathing can lower your blood pressure and increases oxygen flow to the brain which becomes more active and alert. Also helps in releasing toxins from the body.
·        Focus on a point such as an Angel coin or gemstone.  If work cannot stop, focus intently on each action you take.  Consider each step in a work process.  For instance, say to yourself, “I am putting paper into the copier.  I am putting the document into the slot.  I am making 20 copies.”

·        Check with your company to see if they have a Meditation at Work Program.
·        Join a Tai Chi or Yoga class where you will learn further meditation techniques and styles.
·        Practice meditation regularly.
Allow your gifts to Shine.. You are a Lightworker if you are reading this, so if you would like some help with understanding what is happening in your life, call now!  Always here to help you create your joy, balance, great health and love. Reiki is also a wonderful tool for relaxation and also balances the chakras. You can do this.. Just Breathe!

Lightworker: Are you One?

I have noticed on my new website that most of the “hits” are on the tab What is a Lightworker?  So do you know what a Lightworker is?  I do not promote labeling however, Lightworker is a buzz word which is becoming mainstream. Just like Reiki and Tai Chi.

I wanted to give definition and attributes of Lightworkers.  Lightworkers follow a path of love and feel compelled to improve life around them by elevating others to a higher level of consciousness, physically and/or spiritually.  They offer help to others and take actions which make the world a better place.  Lightworkers come from all walks of life without consideration to religious background or other diversities.  Signs of being a Lightworker may include the following:

  • Seeking understanding of the questions: “Why am I here?” or “What is my purpose?”
  • Experiencing a depth of feelings of love and compassion to the extent that you often find yourself helping others.
  • A greater desire to be a part of solving global challenges such as environment or social issues.
  • A desire for being a part of the natural world; starting to garden, visiting nature more often or caring for the animal world; a concern for the health of Mother Earth.
  • Using “gut feelings” or intuition as part of decision making.

Get to work, Lightworker!

Happiness: Choose it – it is Delightful!

Have you ever chased the Ice Cream Truck?  I remember running through the house, screaming to my Mama, chasing the truck down the street and being so excited about getting ice cream from the Ice Cream Person!  I would be full of laughter and anticipation of my wondrous treat.  It just was not the same as going to the store for this special treat.  This wonderful memory was made fresh when I saw – and actually ran after – an Ice Cream Truck at a friends house.  And the truck was my favorite color too – purple!  I was happy to bring back that feeling of joy.  It reminded me how serious we take life as we grow into adulthood.

I challenge each and every one of you to think back to a wonderful memory and get happy!   It is a choice.  I was recently at the grocery store and it was busy.  I noticed the people around me were not even smiling.  I could feel they were really uptight.  I put a smile on my face, took a deep breath and began thinking about Tai Chi in the park and I began to feel really happy.  So, choose your thoughts and be happy!

Want to Find Some Peace? Meditate, Baby!

When the Center was open, every Thursday for six years I taught meditation classes. Many people still ask me how to meditate. There’s so many different ways to meditate! Simply put, meditating is focusing or concentrating on one thing, like Tai Chi. That’s why I love Tai Chi so much. There are many tools that can assist you in your meditation practice. For instance, a candle flame, music or humming. You can also meditate while gardening, doing dishes or other sedate activities.

However, there is one constant – BREATHING! My breathing has changed in the last year and a half since I closed the Center. Back then my breathing was what I call too serious. Not that I don’t take meditation serious – I do. I was being too serious in trying to control everything. Now I sing and hum to relax my energy. As I relax my breathing becomes deeper as I sing. Changing the way I meditate makes me feel more connected to the experience. Without listening to a meditation CD or reading from a book, I create my experience and it works perfect for me. You may want to try this idea – choose a meditation from a book and read it into a recorder. Listening to you tell you what to do – can be very powerful. I challenge every one of you to create your own experience! If you’d like to come to a guided meditation, I welcome you to my home on Thursday from 7:30 – 9:00 PM. Meditation in the Shining Wheel 

How do YOU use crystals? & Bonus Video

Shine On!

Imagine Mother Earth giving her gifts just for you! Crystals are amazing!

The laws of physics tell us that all matter is energy in physical form. Matter is anything that takes up space as a solid, gas or liquid. Gemstones and crystals are examples of solid matter. Formed over eons by way of high pressure and heat, the Earth’s gemstones embody concentrations of energy. Crystals are formed from vapor or liquid that has been compressed or exposed to temperature changes. Presently, we use the energetic and physical properties of gemstones and crystals in many areas of technology. For example, they are used in lasers to perform delicate surgeries and in computers to move information almost instantly around the world. Gemstones and crystals are also used to focus and amplify the natural energies of the body to improve or boost wellness.

The use of gemstones for healing and other spiritual practices has its roots in ancient cultures. These practices have thrived over the centuries and are still used in our modern day world. There are numerous books, websites and other media about the use of gemstones and crystals for spiritual practices.

So, what value do you put on the energy of gemstones – and crystals? If you use them, what do you use them for? The following insights are from two different people followed by my own thoughts on this topic.

Viewpoint 1: I definitely believe gemstones and crystals have a place in my life. I have felt the grounding affects of Snowflake Obsidian, Hematite and Jet. Lately, with all the energy shifts I have had to practice grounding more often.

Viewpoint 2: I use crystals for many things. I have also discovered I can pick up a regular stone from outside and it becomes what I desire at that time. I put my intention into the stone. For instance, it might become a healing stone or a stone for reducing my stress. I have stones I put around a water fountain and my intention with these stones if for abundance!

Angel: I use gemstones and crystals as I do any other tool – when it’s appropriate, when it feels good. I use them for healing, grounding the house and amplifying energy. I also use gemstone wands for energetic healing sessions. Amethyst helps for dream recall, protection and much more. My favorite gemstone is Black Tourmaline. For me, it is so calming and protective – I feel like I am in a bubble of love.

If you would like to learn more about gemstones and crystals join us at the Basic Crystal class on Friday, April 13th!

A Higher Frequency – Joy! & Video

Shine On!

Where do we find joy? Joy, like all other emotions, whether negative or positive is a vibration or frequency. Guilt, fear and anger are all frequencies under 200. On the other hand, love, joy and gratitude are all frequencies over 500. Raising our vibration then, may be the key to experiencing joy. When the body’s energy, or frequency, is higher we are healthier in many ways.

The following is a list of suggestions for finding joy in your life. Ultimately, you must choose to be happy and joyous. You are the only one who can find reasons to feel good and experience joy. These may help get you started.

  • When you step outdoors see the beauty Mother Earth provides and be joyous. Really look at the flowers, plants and animals. Take a walk and look for nature’s beauty. Enjoy it.
  • Watch children – they seem to know the key to happiness. Joy seems natural to them as they sing, dance and play. It may be a good idea to play and have fun. Discover your inner child; see life through a child’s eyes.
  • Tune in to yourself. Take joy in making peace with whom and where you are. See the beauty of self. Acknowledge your divinity and live in appreciation.

All these actions tend to raise your emotional frequency. So, whatever it is that you find makes you feel good, happy and joyous, do it and do it often. You may find the feeling of joy comes to you easier as you practice it.

If you would like to learn more about finding joy, come see us on Wednesday, March 21st for the “Finding Joy In Your Life” class.
