Grow Your Gifts Meditation – Seek Higher Ground

I am one with the rock. I am one with the wind.  I am one with the river.  I am one with the sun.  All is in balance.  Peace reigns within me.

I am one with the rock. I am one with the wind. I am one with the river. I am one with the sun. All is in balance. Peace reigns within me.

Greetings!

This has been a rough few weeks in my world and for some of the people I work with.  When I asked for guidance this morning during a meditation, the image I saw was myself walking over gravel in bare feet.  My feet were bloody and hurting, but standing still didn’t feel any better than moving forward.  A Spirit Guide came to me and offered me a pair of shoes.  They helped, but my feet still hurt.  I heard intuitively that it was time to stop walking.  I saw myself transform into a hawk and lift up into the sky.  I landed on a mountain top similar to the one in this photo.  Archangel Michael was there and he healed my feet.  I heard him say that even though things going on for our loved ones or ourselves may be painful right now, we don’t have to experience them without support.  “Seek higher ground, he said.” 

So let’s do this together.  Take a moment to use the meditation tips below and feel the majesty and beauty of Sedona.  The rocks are old there.  You can feel the ancient wisdom and deep sense of knowing.  Sit on the rock at the top of the mountain.  Let yourself merge into the beauty of the blue sky, the solidness of the red rock, the serenity of the silence.  Maybe if we all spend some time there together, we can bring some of the peace it holds into the world. 

Much love to you all!

Nancy

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.

Grow Your Gifts Meditation – Wear Life Loosely

Spanish Moss and trees

Today, I wear life as a loose garment. I am comfortable and safe. I am light as air and peaceful as a gentle breeze.

Happy Earth Day!  

Here is a Grow Your Gifts Meditation for you!  I chose this image because I love the longevity of the Live Oaks and the light-handed touch of the Spanish Moss. Spanish Moss lives off the air and drapes itself over tree branches, not needing to be tied down in any way.  When I connect to the essence of this space, it helps me be able to wear life a little more loosely, lifting the worries and sorrow.  I hope you find it helpful too!  Below are some instructions to help you get the most out of this meditation.

Grow Your Gifts Meditation – Roots!

live oak roots

I am deeply rooted. I always have what I need when I need it. All is well in my world.

Are you feeling like your foundation is shaking a bit this month?  I’ve been working with many people who are facing some scary shifts in the foundation of their world.  Relationships are ending, job changes are occurring, and often financial security seems to be threatened.  Intuitively, I am being shown that in each case, the person is being encouraged to let go of something they see as connected to their security.  The reason this is happening is because the structure they are clinging to is no longer in alignment with their soul path.  When this happens, we are given invitations to make the change voluntarily.  If we don’t take the invitation though, we often are forced to make the change. 

Having been in this situation a couple of times myself, I know how terrifying it can be.  I’m sharing the image below to support you through this shift.

Remember to invoke ALL the love and support you can receive, so you can feel supported and safe as the changes occur.

Sending lots of love your way!

Morning Musing-Spiritual Guidance for the Day!

Good Morning!  I hope you are all having a beautiful day (whatever day you come upon this).  I asked for some guidance for today and I’ve shared what came through below.  I hope you find it helpful! 

Lake - sunriseEnvision…

I see myself in water that comes up to my shoulders.   I am walking, but also using my arms as if swimming.  The water is very clear and cool.  I feel like I am in a lake.  

Reflect…

As I contemplate this metaphor, I hear, “Swim.  Go ahead and lift your feet off the ground and swim.  You can let yourself be supported by the water and float.  It isn’t necessary to continue to try to walk in water.”  I imagine myself swimming in the beautiful, cool water and I can feel myself relax. 

But what does this mean for us in our daily lives?  I feel the message is that we don’t need to keep plodding through. We can let ourselves be supported and enjoy the experience.  Instead of continuing to operate as if we are earth-bound creatures, we need to adapt to the environment we are now in.  Energetically, a different approach is called for now.  Ask for what you want, invoke Divine support to guide and inspire you, and then take action on what feels in alignment with your heart.  I hear, “Let go of your agendas.  They are unnecessary now.  Enjoy the moment.  Be “in love” with the small details of your experience. Let yourself be supported.”

Intend… 

Today, I intend to be “in love” with my life. I will let go of all agendas and allow myself to enjoy the love and support that surround me.  I will soak in the wonder of each moment and release my fears.  Today, I will swim through my day with joy and ease. 

I pray it is so, and so it is…

Additional Thoughts…

To enhance your experience with this message, take time to really put yourself into the photo.  Ask to connect to the energies of this place and really allow yourself to receive the healing and balancing they provide.  I also find it helps to use the metaphor throughout the day as you are in the process of taking action.  A good question to ask yourself, “Am I swimming through my life today or trying to walk through deep water?” 

Sending much love to you all!  May your day be filled with ease and joy!

Vibrations, Harmony and Coming Home to Nature!

Skimboard

I’ve been experimenting lately.  After my trip to Sedona, AZ where I was able to connect with the Earth Vortex energies, I’ve found myself drawn to find new ways to really “feel” the Earth and nature.  During a recent trip to Florida, I spent time “feeling” the energy of the Gulf of Mexico, feeling the energy of the seabirds, the trees, a dolphin that swam by, and the beach itself.  Consciously energetically “feeling” in this way was an amazing experience!  I’ve been asking for guidance on where to go with this new way of being.

I’ve said in other posts, I feel like we are in the process of coming home to our natural vibration which is in harmonic resonance with nature and the Earth.  I put together a few tips on ways to explore this.

1.  Being Out in Nature:  One of the approaches that I’ve found so helpful in my own quest to come back home to my true nature, is to consciously connect with the Earth during meditative walks.  During these walks, I let myself be guided to different spots and take the time to really connect to what it offers.  Here are a few simple steps to enhance your experience…

  • Take a few deep breaths and focus on love.  Feel your love for the Earth, your love for yourself, and your love for the Divine.  Let that love surround you and fill you.
  • Ask that you be connected to the essence and energy of the place, animal, or object you are working with.  Include that this connection occur in the way that is highest and best for you and the object of your interest and that you receive the amount of this energy that is for your highest and best good.
  •  Breathe slowly and deeply.  Let yourself feel and experience whatever comes to you without trying to control the process.  What comes to your mind?  What do you smell, see, feel, or hear through the experience?
  • When you feel ready, take a moment to send love and gratitude for the connection and guidance given.

2.  Use sound to bring you into vibrational harmony and resonance:  Intuitively, I am often shown metaphors of music to help me to understand about harmonic resonance.  During a session recently, I was shown the whole Universe as this complex and hauntingly beautiful song.  The Earth was one refrain in the whole.  We are also a song onto ourselves and a refrain within the song of the Earth.  As we learn to hear the purity of our own song, we bring our melody to the song of the Earth.  Below are a few tools to support you in working with this concept:

  • Gabriel Masterson (Homecoming):  A friend shared this music with me.  This is the closest I’ve ever experienced in feeling the Earth’s song and rhythm.  Just listening brings your system into harmony and resonance in a very gentle, yet powerful way.  I can’t recommend it highly enough.  Here is the link:  Gabriel Masterson
  • Jonathan Goldman (Chakra Chants):  This is a wonderful collection that is very powerful when working with the chakra energy centers of our bodies.  Try matching your voice to the tone of the crystal bowls in the selection.  I’ve found this to be very cleansing and healing.  You can listen to samples and/or purchase here:  Chakra Chants

 Wishing you a day filled with joy and harmony!

Morning Musings: Guidance for the Day!

River

This is the Morning Musing entry for today. The Morning Musing entries came about because I wanted to ask for Divine Guidance for my day. I use the vision/metaphor and the intentions I set based on what comes through to keep me focused on what I want to experience. I thought you might find it helpful too, so here is today’s message (and “today” is whatever day you come upon this!)!

Envision…

I see myself walking along a creek.  The water is shallow and there are many small rocks.  I see a snake curled around an overhanging branch.  It drops off the branch onto my shoulders.  It slides down my back and into the water where it becomes a man who is one of my Spirit Guides.  The Guide points to a rock nearby.  We walk to it and climb up on it.  I feel a sense of peace wash over me as I listen to the running water of the creek and the quiet sounds of the forest.

 

Reflect…

Normally, having a snake drop on my shoulders would make me feel fear.  Curiously, in this vision, I felt no fear.  As it slid down my spine, it was as if it was clearing the fear from my chakra column.  Sitting on the rock with my guide, I felt the peace that comes in nature.  Life goes on there with a rhythm all its own.  Sitting and watching it felt very soothing.

Intend…

Today, I will stay close to my Spirit Guide and rest on the strength of the Earth.  I will remember that there is order in all things.  I will remember today, I don’t need to fix anything.  I can let it all go on without my influence, knowing that it is all happening perfectly.

 I pray it is so, and so it is…
