Explore Your Inner Diva Workshop 4/30

I am North Carolina until the end of the month, but will be heading back to the Ohio area for the first week of May. I will be sharing some opportunities to connect when I am back in another post, but I wanted to be sure and invite you to this fun event at Conversations & Co Boutique! I am one of the presenters, along with some of my dear and talented friends. The workshop includes lunch and 20% off at the beautiful boutique. See below for full details…

 

Grow Your Gifts Meditation – Clearing

 It felt like a good day to take a trip to the Gulf of Mexico and let the salty water wash away whatever we are ready to let go of!  

I am cleansed of all that I no longer need!

I am cleansed of all that I no longer need!

How to Work with the Image to Support the Process
• Take a moment to center yourself. Close your eyes and breathe in and out slowly three times. Let your exhale be longer than your inhale.

• Open your eyes and focus on the image. Ask your Spiritual Support Team to help you come into harmonic resonance with the image and to receive the amount of energy from the essence of the place for your highest and best good.

• Use your imagination to put yourself in the photo. Use all your senses to interact with what is shown. What do you feel, see, hear, smell, taste and touch as you connect?

• Ask for Divine guidance on how you can incorporate the gifts from this essence into your own life and situation. Allow yourself to feel the love and support flowing to you and through you from the Earth and the Divine.

• Repeat the affirmation (see caption) as you breathe in and out slowly.

• Be open to any additional thoughts, sounds, smells, or images that come to you as you are working with the photo. Consider these as messages to support you on your path. Ask what these impressions mean to you. What do they make you think or feel?

• Continue to recall the image throughout the day when you wish to bring in the energy it provides.

• Express your gratitude for the gifts given to you through the experience.

Love to all!

Grow Your Gifts Meditation – Uncover the True Self

Hopewell Mound

I uncover my true self and connect to my power and wisdom with ease.

This photo was taken at Hopewell Monument National Park.  I spent some time on the ground on the other side of the large mound in the center of the photo.  It has amazing energy!  The sycamore really stood out too.  In Ted Andrew’s Nature-Speak, sycamore means “nourishment and beauty abound; new life and new gifts.”   Another section describes it in this way, “The sycamore awakens the feminine energies of intuition, beauty and nourishment around us.  It can open us to the energies of love and Nature and all their magnificent aspects.  The sycamore will augment all connections to Nature, and its appearance in our life encourages us to draw upon the realm of Nature for health, abundance and inspiration.”   You might want to do this two times.  One to connect with the energy of the Earth around the large mound and the second time to connect with the energy of the sycamore.

How to Work with the Image to Support the Process

  • Take a moment to center yourself.  Close your eyes and breathe in and out slowly three times.  Let your exhale be longer than your inhale.
  • Open your eyes and focus on the image.  Ask your Spiritual Support Team to help you come into harmonic resonance with the image and to receive the amount of energy from the essence of the place for your highest and best good.

  • Continue to recall the image throughout the day when you wish to bring in the energy it provides.
  • Express your gratitude for the gifts given to you through the experience.

 Have a wonderful day!

Grow Your Gifts Meditation – Inner Sun

I connect with the warmth of my inner sun, knowing it lights my way and warms my heart.

I connect with the warmth of my inner sun, knowing it lights my way and warms my heart.

It is bitterly cold in Ohio right now. The weather is making it very difficult to be outdoors as much as I like to be.  It is a good time to remember we can always connect and bring in the energy of Mother Earth, even if we aren’t able to be directly outdoors.  Take a moment to connect with this image, feeling the warmth of the sun and the bright, freshness to the air to recharge your own inner sun.  Eventually, the sun will bring spring again.  We might as well take this time to dream within of what we wish to see bloom when the season changes. 

How to Work with the Image to Support the Process

  • Take a moment to center yourself.  Close your eyes and breathe in and out slowly three times.  Let your exhale be longer than your inhale. 
  • Open your eyes and focus on the image.  Ask your Spiritual Support Team to help you come into harmonic resonance with the image and to receive the amount of energy from the essence of the place for your highest and best good.

January News and Special Offer!

 Newsletter Banner

January 2014

Hello!

Are you feeling like you are in hibernation mode this month?  I have heard from many of you who are feeling this way (and I am too!).  I take this as a good sign that we have moved more into alignment with nature’s rhythms, something that is our natural state of being.  Honor this time to reflect, rest and recharge your system if you are able to.

I’ve had a lot of clients and family members (including me) having strange physical symptoms occurring lately.  I’m sure it is tied to the Ascension process, but it is also an invitation to develop a better communication system between our body/mind/spirit.  This month’s empowerment circle and special offer provide an opportunity to learn from any physical situation that is going on.   You can learn more below.  Let me know if you have any questions!

Love to you all!

Nancy

reverbration

121 Reverberation:  Participate in Mystery – Visualize and feel Reverberation as the cosmic vibratory feedback of all you have sent out.  Reverberation says, ‘Every wave of breath, feeling and thought is still and equipoised in space.  Behold yourself in the cosmos and the cosmos within yourself.  Change isolated memories into the living feedback of the universe within you.’  Affirmation:  My thoughts and feelings are a field of cosmic reverberations giving me feedback.”

8 Infinity:  Release and Return – Visualize and feel infinity within your own being.  You are open and at once with all things through infinity.  Infinity says, ‘Change limitation to infinite returns.  You are abundance.  Feel the waves of power returning to you infinitely.’  Affirmation:  I let go of rigidity and go forth with faith in the flow of life returning infinitely.”

Grow Your Gifts Meditation – Trust

I trust the hand that reaches out to me is loving and kind.  I am cared for as the gentle, loving creature that I am.

I trust the hand that reaches out to me is loving and kind. I am cared for as the gentle, loving creature that I am.

I took this picture at a butterfly exhibit at Stan Hywet Hall in Akron, Ohio. The hand in the picture is my niece, Caitlyn. She and her brother spent a good hour convincing the butterflies to be held. They were both surprisingly gentle and patient with the creatures and rewarded by lots of close contact with them. The butterflies were gifted with sugar-water and lots of love and admiration! Something to think about as we interact with others today.

How to Work with the Image

1. Take a moment to center yourself. Close your eyes and breathe in and out slowly three times. Let your exhale be longer than your inhale.

2. Open your eyes and focus on the image. Ask your Spiritual Support Team to help you come into harmonic resonance with the image and to receive the amount of energy from the essence of the place for your highest and best good.

Grow Your Gifts Meditation – Contemplating Freedom!

GYG contemplating freedom

I am free to relax and enjoy, knowing I have wings to fly when I need them.

The Grow Your Gifts Meditations are something I use to help me come back to my own center by reconnecting to nature.  This is a photo from Longboat Key, Florida.  I love pelicans!  These pelicans were hanging out on the dock by the restaurant we were eating at and were clearly unconcerned about all the people around.  To me, pelicans always seem to be very self-confident and comfortable with who they are.  For those of us ready to embrace our own uniqueness this month, the pelican is a wonderful role model.  I hope you find connecting with their energy helpful! 

How to Work with the Image

  1. Take a moment to center yourself.  Close your eyes and breathe in and out slowly three times.  Let your exhale be longer than your inhale.
  2. Open your eyes and focus on the image.  Ask your Spiritual Support Team to help you come into harmonic resonance with the image and to receive the amount of energy from the essence of the place for your highest and best good.
  3. Use your imagination to put yourself in the photo.  Use all your senses to interact with what is shown.  What do you feel, see, hear, smell, taste and touch as you connect?
  4. Ask for Divine guidance on how you can incorporate the gifts from this essence into your own life and situation.  Allow yourself to feel the love and support flowing to you and through you from the Earth and the Divine.

  7. Continue to recall the image throughout the day when you wish to bring in the energy it provides.
  8. Express your gratitude for the gifts given to you through the experience. 

For those in the USA, don’t the pelicans look like they are getting ready to watch the fireworks? 🙂  A fun thought as we celebrate the freedom of our country this week!

Love and blessings to all!

Morning Musings: Guidance for the day ahead!

About Morning Musings…I asked for some intuitive guidance for today (or whatever day you come upon this).  I find it helpful to use the metaphor I’m shown to make the most of my day.  I hope you find it helpful too!  Here it is…

blue butterflyThe Vision…

I see a small blue butterfly flying.  A hornet buzzes around it.  The butterfly is unconcerned.  The flapping wings prevent the hornet from getting too close.  With no access, it eventually gives up and flies away.

Reflection…

When I feel the butterfly, there is a sense of being joyful, relaxed and content.  It is in no hurry and seems to be enjoying the gentle stroke of its wings, the feel of the light breeze, and all the beauty around it.  The hornet is frustrated.  It feels agitated that it is unable to get to the butterfly’s body to sting it.  Every time it sees an opening, the wings move and the opening closes.  It also seems frustrated that the butterfly is able to ignore its presence.  As I consider this metaphor, I believe the message is to be like the butterfly today.  Really focus on being a creature that is content in its own being and who is able to enjoy the beauty the day offers.  Knowing it is safe from the hornet’s stinger allows it to be unafraid. Eventually, that which agitates or threatens our serenity will disappear.

Intention…

Today, I will remember I have wings and that I am safe.  I will trust that I will be protected from anything that would cause me pain.  I will focus on all the peace and beauty around me, relaxed and content.

I pray it is so, and so it is…

Have a wonderful day!

Nancy

Grow Your Gifts Meditation – Healing

GYG Healing

My healing comes from my oneness with the Divine. As I embrace this oneness, I no longer need to be healed.

This photo is of the Gulf of Mexico taken in Longboat Key, Florida.  I invite you to use the meditation steps listed below to connect deeply with the energetic essence of this place.  When you are ready, imagine that which needs healing in you or your life as a fish which you release into the water.  As you feel the fish come into communion with its home environment (as our home is in the Divine which ocean represents), know that it is safe for you to release it completely.  Feel the healing flow into your being, as you repeat the affirmation.  Below are some suggestions on how to work more deeply with the image.      

How to Work with the Image

Take a moment to center yourself.  Close your eyes and breathe in and out slowly three times.  Let your exhale be longer than your inhale.

Open your eyes and focus on the image.  Ask your Spiritual Support Team to help you come into harmonic resonance with the image and to receive the amount of energy from the essence of the place for your highest and best good.

Use your imagination to put yourself in the photo.  Use all your senses to interact with what is shown.  What do you feel, see, hear, smell, taste and touch as you connect?

Ask for Divine guidance on how you can incorporate the gifts from this essence into your own life and situation.  Allow yourself to feel the love and support flowing to you and through you from the Earth and the Divine.

Repeat the affirmation (see caption) as you breathe in and out slowly. 

Be open to any additional thoughts, sounds, smells, or images that come to you as you are working with the photo.  Consider these as messages to support you on your path.  Ask what these impressions mean to you.  What do they make you think or feel?

Continue to recall the image throughout the day when you wish to bring in the energy it provides.

Express your gratitude for the gifts given to you through the experience. 

Blessings to you and yours!
