The energy the past few weeks has made it tough to discern intentions, and this has only intensified as communication issues have increased in the shadow period of Mercury retrograde.
At times like these, it’s vital to trust your intuition.
What’s the deeper truth behind the things that you’re reading and watching? Are the sources that you choose reliable, or are they compromised by certain donors or affiliations? Are people and groups who they profess to be, or do they have hidden agendas? Are you seeing just a piece of something, or do you have the whole story?
Your intuition will alert you if something isn’t right. It’s your job to trust that feeling, act on it, and make choices that are better suited for you in the long term.
Physical perception is only a small part of our awareness, but it often commands more attention than the other parts. What we see, hear, and perceive though the lens of the 3D world is important, but it can be less important than the energy behind something.
An emphasis on energetic perception enables us to make more informed and aligned choices by showing us the motives, intentions, and vibration behind something.
Think about the last time you had a falling out with someone. What was your very first interaction like with that person? Do you remember being a little cautious, a bit put off, or somewhat wary of their intentions? Did that then fade after getting to know them? Do you feel a resonance between the initial meeting energy and the end falling-out energy?
The subconscious mind picks up on energy first and foremost – the conscious mind relies less on intuition and more on physical perception.
When entering new situations, meeting new people, or just deciding what feels like an aligned activity for the day, tune in first to the energy and feel whether the path you’re heading down is truly energetically aligned. You’ll enjoy better experiences and more positive outcomes.
Whenever I’ve felt off-course and out of alignment, two things have consistently helped me – energy work and connecting to my roots.
I talk a lot about the former, but the latter is just as intrinsic a practice.
When I say “connecting to my roots,” I mean returning to my values and my soul’s purpose – remembering why I’m here.
Viewing decisions through that lens clarifies my highest path almost instantly.
If you’re feeling out of alignment or having a tough time deciding on something, center yourself, meditate, and ask yourself – what is my purpose? How does this path help or hinder my purpose? What alternate path could I take to further honor my soul?
Believe your answer when it comes. Act on it. You may hear words or see a vision, or you may feel an uncomfortable tightness in your chest (that means no) or an expansion of your energy (that means yes). If you want more information, ask for additional details.
When the world feels crazy, it’s important to have your own peace to draw upon. That sense of peace will help you persist throughout tough moments and in difficult situations.
What gives you inner peace? Is it waking up to the stillness of morning, relaxing after a long day, or spending time with loved ones and pets? Feel into that sense of peace, and then shift into that feeling when you’re having a hard time. After you’ve practiced for awhile, choosing your peace will become natural.
Many things in life are uncertain right now, but it’s important to remember our personal power. Claim your power to create your life, craft your responses, and hone your adaptability.
In this time of stillness, when most are at home, there’s a wonderful opportunity to delve deep and restructure the parts of yourself that you want to restructure.
Examine habits, relationships, and boundaries. Identify the conditioning that’s been leading you astray. Determine what is and isn’t in your highest and best interest. Then use that knowledge and understanding to amplify those things that serve you and your purpose, rather than wasting energy on those things that don’t serve so much.
Once you’ve dealt with things internally and activated your personal power, you’ll begin to notice that outer circumstances no longer disturb your peace.
Raising your vibration is one of the best things – if not the best thing – that you can do for yourself.
Whether your goal is abundance, health, fulfillment, or happiness, a high vibration will help you get there each and every time. Raising your vibration is a way to fine-tune your path, attract aligned opportunities, and manifest your desired reality.
How to raise your vibration?
Here are a few suggestions. Always pick the methods that resonate the most for you.
Dance, walk, run, do yoga, or otherwise MOVE your body – you’ll shift harmful energy and increase endorphins, which help to raise your vibration
Listen to your favorite music
Enjoy your favorite hobby
Meditate and ask to bring in energy from your higher self and your guides
Get a Reiki session or an energy-clearing session of some kind (click HERE to check out my on-demand energy-healing sessions)
Drink water and eat healthy food – fresh fruits and veggies in particular will help you detox your body and will raise your vibration
Take a personal day! Spend the time doing things that you’ve been wanting to do but haven’t allowed yourself to do because of time, money, or other reasons
Spend quality time with loved ones and/or pets
Unplug from the Internet, TV, and social media for a day (or more) and focus on being in the moment
Spend time in nature and appreciate what you see and experience
Make a gratitude list
Practice deep breathing exercises and envision harmful energy leaving your body with each exhale
Take a long bath or shower – adding herbs and essential oils can help raise your vibration further. (Be sure to use essential oils only with a carrier oil to avoid burning your skin.)
Clean your house – remove clutter, organize your belongings, and arrange things aesthetically
Look at beautiful photographs or art, or watch a funny video
When you’re focusing on raising your vibration, don’t allow yourself to get sucked into negative thought patterns or harmful energy – if these come up, observe them, but gently release the thought or the energy by consciously shifting to a more positive thought or outlook.
