Telepathy and Astral Travel

Has anyone ever experienced a loved one who was hundreds of miles away and yet you seemed to interpret one another thoughts, emotions, sometimes even memories as if they were right next to you? Or you had this thought pop into your head and come to find out at that exact moment that is what the other person was thinking/transmuting?Sometimes you feel that person there with you, even physically it seems? Especially in the evening or morning right before you drift off or wake from slumber.No matter what you do you just can’t get that person out of your thoughts. Well this is a case of a telepathic connection, plain and simple. However, there isn’t anything really simple about it at all. It is a very real probability that that other person can’t stop thinking about you as well.

Telepathy is the supposed communication of thoughts and ideas by means other than the known sources. Our universe is so fast & there is so much that can not be explained. One thing that is a certainty is that everything in this boundless universe is made up entirely of energy. There are those times where the connection between two people simply defies any sense of logic & you are not only connected in your souls and in your heart but by the power of your mind as well. A telepathic connection.

Astral Projection or astral travel as the term I prefer is a term used in esotericism to describe a willful out-of-body experience that assumes the existence of a soul or consciousness called an “astral body” that is separate from the physical body and capable of travelling outside it throughout the universe.

This action happens more frequently during lucid dreaming but can equally be harnessed just as effectively during meditation to reach those you love or those you wish to impart an important message too. I mention the concept of astral travel as well for I find that most that seem to harness this phenomenon of telepathy with others seem to astral travel to their loved ones as well. Mainly through dreams, as if you have just taken a trip in your mind to be with the other person.

Have any of you experienced or are currently experiencing a telepathic connection with someone? 

What are your personal experiences with astral travel and lucid dreaming?

Namaste!

Gratitude


This Past Thursday American celebrated Thanksgiving. Now Thanksgiving isn’t exactly my favorite holiday, that honor would go to Halloween & Christmas. I do however love how Thanksgiving brings friends and family together. We are brought together, and we enjoy favorite recipes that have been passed down for generations & we celebrate the art of Gratitude. 

The formal definition of gratitude is the quality of being thankful. Readiness to show appreciation for and in return kindness. 

Gratitude to me is keeping myself in that positive mindset as much as I possibly can. We are all human & its impossible to be happy & upbeat all of the time. However when I am low & then force myself to focus on what I’m truly thankful for, It always seems to lift my spirits, confidence, and overall will to succeed. Looking at all I am grateful for reminds me that what I do & who I am is indeed important.

I actually started a gratitude challenge about a month out before Thanksgiving that I heard about from my MOPS group. You text one person every day for 14 days 3 things your grateful for. The whole idea is that practicing and forcing yourself to focus on what you are grateful for will essentially shift your perception. Your problems may dissipate or seem less monumental. That is the power of gratitude to alter how you see things so that you may focus on all the abundance you already have been blessed with. 

Venus Direct & Mercury goes Retrograde.

Well it was a doozy of a day for me. I woke up pretty optimistic actually, got my yoga in & actually all together & out the door at a decent time. However I could not shake this nagging feeling that there was indeed a holiday performance at my daughters school… The kind where you dress your children up in their holiday fineware & you yourself get all gussied up to go watch them belt out the adorable holiday songs they have been practicing for months. I checked the school calendar- nothing. I checked my email for reminder emails-again nothing. I asked my daughter if she could remember if there was a program today at school- of course she said “no way!” So poor naive mom sent her girl off in a freakin paw patrol dress to school. Thank God my intuition just wouldn’t stop nagging and I asked the teachers at drop off about the situation & sure enough if the program wasn’t happening in less than an hour. So there I sat in the chapel with everyone dressed up to the nines & me in yoga pants… Yes yoga pants & a hoodie. Nice try MaryJean… but honestly your pearls have nothing on my finest athleisurewear….. That in a nut shell is Mercury going retrograde. The unexpected & uncomfortable around every corner, but then again as much as me and my children looked like a couple of misfits up in that chapel. I will never forget my baby girl scanning the audience for us & then when she found us, that huge smile of pride from seeing her momma and sissy there waving like some crazy lunatics…. That part was totally Venus going direct.

Venus went direct this morning in Libra but opposing Uranus. So sudden and earth shaking events pertaining to your love life occurring will be more likey. This doesn’t have to always be related to your romantic love life though. Love is in many forms, like me feeling the love from my baby girls pride in her holiday performance. Or you might suddenly find out your pregnant or that a beloved friend is moving back into the state for example. Venus going direct opposing Uranus can indicate sudden and jolting events in any matter relating to love and relationships in your heart.

Then of course the dreaded Mercury retrograde… Which is truly nothing to fear at all. If you get used to avoiding signing contracts and making huge decisions/ buying electronics during this period, you will grow to see that this period is really more of a Netflix & chill / reflective period of time in your life. Especially leading up to the holidays, take time to slow down think about all you have evolved and overcome in this emotional rollercoaster of a year. Truly enjoy the season and time with your loved ones. For we will be officially out of Mercury retrograde & the shadow period right in time for Christmas. Namaste!

Chakra Healing Stones

The Premise of chakras is simply the idea that there are 7 hubs or hotspot on our body. Spots that are responsible for particular energy and emotions that make up our energetic physic as a whole. Crystals and stones are well attributed for their energetic properties. So using them for their healing qualities to attune and balance the energies of our chakras only makes sense.

Root Chakra is the most primal energy hotspot on our body. This Chakra reperesents our instincts and survivalist nature. This Chakra is about being grounded and feeling safe. I use Red Jasper to balance my root chakra. Red Jasper induces confidence, strength, and life force. This stone gives you the courage to speak up and be heard. To focus on your own independence and life force energy.

The Sacral Chakra is the chakra that is associated with the energy of creativity, sexuality, arousal and pleasure. It is the sexual hub out of all the chakras. I use Carnelian to balance my Sacral Chakra. Carnelian ushers in a very vibrant energy, an energy of stepping out of the norm, being bold and powerful. This stone inspires ambition and drive. An all around action stone.

The Solar Plexus Chakra is the chakra that deals with your self, your ego. What your beliefs are and is the center of your will power & self esteem. I use Yellow Calcite to clear out old, toxic and self limiting energy. This stone is excellent for irradiating self doubt, and giving one more self confidence.

The Heart Chakra is all about how you love. Your compassion and warmth for others. If your having problems in being open and accepting of love or how you are warm towards other, this is the chakra you want to focus on clearing and balancing. I love the stone Prehnite for this Chakra. This stone is enhances spiritual connection and deepens the relationship that you have for yourself. For it is essential to love oneself properly before you can embark on relationships with others.

The Throat Chakra is about your truth, and how you properly & effectively communicate with others. This chakra is like the voice in which all the other chakras may be expressed. I love using the blue quartz to balance this Chakra out. For it’s a beautiful stone to enhance communication & bring peaceful & diplomatic expression. Quartz in general are excellent for clearing & protection.

The Third Eye Chakra is your chakra of inner conscious. This Chakra energy is about your intuition & psychic abilities. Your spiritual eye Chakra. I use Sodalite with this Chakra. Sodalite is a stone that opens one up & enhances spiritual messages/awakenings. This stone is about balancing between logic and intuitive thoughts.

The Crown Chakra is your connection with the divine. This Chakra will be your area of enlightenment and how you connect with the universe. Amethyst is my go to to heal and balance my crown chakra. Amethyst is the ultimate psychic protection stone. This purple gem heals, balances, & heights energy of love & psychic awareness.

These are my favorite stones to use for chakra healing but there are many other wonderful options in the world of healing crystals and stones. Namaste.

Venus Retrograde + New Moon 10/8/18

img_3759

Venus goes retrograde October 5th in Scorpio. I myself have my natal Venus in the 8th house, the astrological house ruled by Scorpio. Let me tell you that when it comes to anything Venus related and Scorpio, get ready for a unworldly emotional subconscious dive into the deep dark ocean of the unknown.

It is mysterious, intriguing and ambiguous. Yet believe me when I tell you nothing will rock your core and transform you quite like an Scorpio aspect/transit will. Scorpio is some serious business, known to be the emotional water sign that represents everything dark and extremely sensual. It is a sign to me right up there with Pisces & Cancer that represents the most intuitionaly inclined energy of all the astrological signs. However though where Pisces is the dreamy/spiritual type & Cancer is the nurturing/emotionally intuitive type, Scorpio is the shadowy/underworld type.

So Venus going retrograde in this sign, for pretty much the entire month of October (going Direct 11/16/18) will bring some seriously fated aspects to your love life. First and foremost anyone with even the slightest knowledge of astrology will tell you the #1 rule of Venus retrograde is you do not undergo any extreme beauty regiments like liposuction, Botox, a drastically new hairdo….Hell, I’d even leave those eyebrows alone if I were you…just sayin. Just don’t do it… trust me on this one & with this particular Venus retrograde with a square mars aspect, just wait.

I would also highly be on the look out for ex lovers or opportunities of forbidden affairs to arise. Be extremely careful with the kind of energy you adhere to because as previously stated, the things that occur in this time are very fated and will stick with you for a lifetime. I’m also a big advocate of steering away from proposals of marriage during this time. Those who typically become or announce engagements during a Venus retrograde will have big time problems….. if the relationship even lasts until they get to the altar….. to be frank.

Then we will have our New Moon in Libra 10/8/18, with some awfully caring and empathetic energy enveloping us. So this would be a lovely time to set some sincere and sensitive intentions towards your family matters. Beware though of the intense Pluto square aspect to this new moon. This will add drama due to Pluto, the planet ruled by Scorpio (that deep, dramatic energy yet again). So handle your affairs with a gentle and loving energy. I wish all of you the happiest of Octobers! Namaste!

MOPS

I recently joined a group, MOPS International. This beautiful network of women encourages and equips mothers of young children to realize their potential not only as mothers, women and leaders in their community, but in their relationship with Jesus, and in partnership with their local church as well. This network of women is about uniting in our motherhood and everyday struggles to support, discover and to inspire each other in every way possible. Finding our Fire is the theme of this year. Have you ever given much thought to what your fire is? Where your passions lie? Especially as mothers, we are so consumed with living and serving our families that we often forget to remember who we are and what we stand for as individual women. We forget our fire.

Meeting with these women and listening to these wise speakers a couple of things that struck out at me were; Firstly, Truly enjoying your littles. We all have heard the “enjoy it while you can, bc it goes by in a blink of an eye”. Not only have we heard this but we all understand it (to an extend), yet the reality is it’s a very difficult concept to apply in everyday life at times. Especially when our babies are so small. We are all so so tired and most often than not in survival robot mode. It’s about making sure everyone is fed, clothed, on a decent sleeping schedule that we forget ourselves and who we are. Raising children is so hard that we don’t realize what pure joy & a treat it truly is to have these pint size little comedians in our every day-to-day life. Have your children ever told a joke or did something that made you laugh or giggle so much that you realized that this very moment of joy would not only linger in your soul forever, but would utterly transform you. That is what enjoying your children is all about. Listing to them playing their make-believe games when they don’t realize you are watching, or seeing them dance with so much enthusiasm. There is so much wisdom to be learned from the little ones about enjoying the innocence and joys in life, join them in letting yourself enjoy the beautiful world around us. Join them in their perception of the world.

Secondly, a profound change in perception will in fact transform you. Think about it… when your children are a mess and you respond in miserable way, they too will feel that energy. Then in return they will give yet an even worse reaction. Thus a vicious cycle of toxic and miserable energy emerges between you and your child. Leaving you feeling more than likely guilty and like a crappy momma at the end of the day. Now I’m not suggesting not disciplining your child, children need structure to thrive in personal opinion. I’m just also a believer in they need a positive environment as well for success for both them and for your piece of mind as the amazing momma you are.

Lastly, Yes the cliché of the old ‘one day the things driving you crazy today, you will surly miss tomorrow’…. Today you perhaps would give anything to get them to stop talking for two seconds, but yet when they are a couple of years older its important to remember how much you will give for them to include and talk with you again just like when they were little. You truly are living the special moments of your life, do not let them pass you by unnoticed.

Seeing people through Gods eyes, not your own. That’s what is so important to keep in mind. You never ever know what a person is going through. Even someone you may classify as a bubbly air head or a cold and distant bitch, is still a human being worthy of love and understanding. You have no clue if they go home at the end of the day feeling not good enough. That’s what MOPS stands for….. supporting and propping your fellow mom up… let them know you see them! and they are not only enough, they are hitting it out of the damn park!

If you are a mom or know a mom, please check out/direct them to the MOPS organization here MOPS. Especially in this day and age where there are so many mom’s out there who are struggling daily, who are lonely, starved for adult conversation, get zero to little sleep, and especially those suffering from even trickier obstacles such as depression and anxiety. We need to come together, we need to love & support one another, we need to talk to one another.

New Moon in Virgo & Me

We have a fortunate new moon in Virgo occurring. Personally I am ready to declare some serious new moon intentions. Virgo is an extremely detail oriented and focused sign. I can not imagine a better type of energy you would want behind and driving your fresh intentions for the month.

I have found myself shedding so many ego issues with the recent Neptune activity as well. I find myself sharper and just a little bit more prepared for the next chapter than say I was about a couple of weeks ago. That’s the way it works though… In July & August we were undergoing so many seriously transformative eclipses, with the sole purpose of shaking us all up energetically.

Communication was hindered as well with the mercury retrograde and shadow periods. So finally at this time, for the first time in months we can shed the cocoon of the summers eclipse and retrograde seasons and not only finally declare but fully focus on where desire to go next. Another aspect of note with this new moon in particular is with the opposition to Neptune-the planet of confusion, deception, and fear. This new moon is about uncovering some major fears to achieve the essential confidence we need for success and to forage on.
