Third Eye Chakra

The sixth chakra is the intuition chakra located between your eyebrows on your forehead. It is referred to as many thing and hold a lot of weight in many religions that practice meditation and self realization.

The sixth has represented many things for me. One of them being a mind overworked with worry and the illusion of the struggle life holds. I have struggled with trying to "understand" the meaning of life, the essence of God and why I am really here.

Guest Blog: A Journey of Discovery: Planning a Sabbatical

Have you been feeling the onset of professional burn out, wondering where all those 50-hour work weeks and personal sacrifice are getting you? Maybe you’re a team player but you’re just not sure if this is really what you want. A lot of people respond to this uncertainty by jumping ship and heading off to another employer in the same industry, perhaps making more money but failing to resolve their career angst. If this sounds like you, there may be another option, and you may not need to fine-tune the resume and hit the job trail.

If you can, think about pressing the “pause button” and take a career break by going on sabbatical for an extended period. It’s not for everyone, of course, but if you approach it in the right way, it can be life-changing. Also, don’t overlook the psychological and self-care benefits of getting away and resetting your perspective.


According to Oxford Living Dictionaries, it means “relating to or affecting the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things.” Addressing this part of who you are is essential to moving forward in life with a full heart and freedom from doubt.
You don’t have to flee into the mountains to live in a cave while pondering the meaning of the universe, thank goodness. That sounds very unpleasant, and your family would never allow it, anyway. There’s an easier way: by making adjustments to your physical and mental health efforts to gain deeper insight into your connection with the world while nurturing your soul. Here are a few ideas that will help you on this important journey.

Book Review: Waking Up in 5D: A Practical Guide to Multidimensional Transformation

Waking Up in 5D: A Practical Guide to Multidimensional Transformation

By Maureen J. St. Germain

Published by Bear & Company - 2017

This book is a self-transformation book on navigating the shifting relationship we are having with our reality and it’s intensified polarization. The book gives some guidance and thoughts on what we might be going through and how to think differently about what is happening.

This is the first book I have read by Maureen J. St. Germain and it took me a bit to get to the title, which I picked up in June. I liked the title and was drawn to finally read it when my own work was experiencing some major fluctuations. A lot of what she talks about in this book is about the changes of energy we are experiencing and how to think navigate it.

The book includes some charts and is easy to read quickly, but much of the material, if you aren’t familiar with it, might require you to go back and read it again.

She offers an elevated level of protection and connection along with pictures and step-by-step instructions. It is a bit complicated if you aren’t familiar with the Merkaba already or energy healing work. But if you are looking for more advanced material on the subject, this might be the book for you.


I have recommended this book to a couple of clients. Both of which has studied many different energy modalities, one felt like it was the right timing and another felt like some of the analogies were difficult to relate back to the material.

Either way, I think this information is relevant at this time and for those of you looking to elevate your understanding of what might be happening with our shifting energies, this is one theory worth reading, but only if you are ready to open your mind up to the idea that we are multidimensional beings.


Charades and other pass times with your Guides

We are constantly getting signs, lessons, answers and messages from our guides and etheric helpers. Skeptics think this is all in people's heads. If that is true, let me tell you my head is SMART! Everything I hear your guides say for you is just right for you. Everything I hear them say for me is stuff I could never tell myself. So if that is all in my head, I am okay with that. Because it works. But for those of us with a little more open mindedness and willing to think beyond ourselves, hear me when I say, you are being heard and you are being answered.

Hearing the answers takes a few things besides just a clear head. Here are a few fun games to play with your guides to get the communication flowing.

Guest Blog: Life Transitions | An Opportunity Awakens

By Brad Krause

A major life event, whether positive or negative, is an opportunity to re-evaluate many of your behaviors and make changes that will lead you on a positive path. Keep reading for how to turn the things that turn your life upside down into a chance to change for the better.

Losing a job

There is no doubt that losing a job, especially one you’ve held for many years, is tough. When you have a family to care for, the loss can be even more overwhelming as you scramble to figure out how to make ends meet. But despite a temporary setback, a forced job change does not have to mean permanent devastation.

The moment you are released from your 9-to-5 obligations is your first chance to change paths. You have an opportunity to swap careers and pursue something you truly appreciate. You can turn your passion into a paycheck. For instance, if you enjoy photography, look for career opportunities at photo studios, as a photography assistant, or as your own boss shooting events, weddings or headshots. In addition to having a chance to make money, doing things you love will allow you to experience new happiness. You may even meet new people that will benefit you along the way.

Kids leaving for college

According to Money Crashers, empty nest syndrome isn’t the end of your parenting years but the beginning of your time to reconnect with your spouse or partner. While it is perfectly normal to feel a little sad when your children fly the proverbial coup, there is no reason to sit alone in an empty home.

Take this opportunity to restyle your home for the way you want to live. Decluttering – even if it means emptying the kids’ rooms – is a great way to give yourself a mental health boost. You may even wish to downsize and move to a smaller home that costs less to upkeep. This will give you the money to pursue travel or other interests and eliminate many home maintenance tasks. Move cherished but rarely used items into storage if you won’t have room in your new home or after redecorating. Fortunately, renting storage doesn’t have to set you back significantly: the average price of a self-storage unit booked in Broomfield, Colorado is about $114.

Divorce

Even under the best circumstances, dealing with divorce is difficult.  Leaving a relationship can leave you with shattered self-confidence. But it’s also a jump-off point to remodeling yourself into a person you are proud of. DevelopingGoodHabits.com explains that confident people have no problem finding happiness within themselves. The end of a bad relationship is the perfect opportunity for you to do just that so your next relationships are healthy and happy.

Health scare

Your health is one aspect of yourself that you largely control. Although there are genetic factors and unexpected situations, your actions directly affect your health. When you have a health scare such as prediabetes, you are being given a second chance to change your bad habits.

One bad habit you can change is how you eat. Remember, what you put into your mouth is the fuel your body has to stay healthy. You have the power to stop smoking and change your exercise routine and alcohol intake.

Life takes many unexpected twists and turns. Use them wisely, and you will be that much more prepared to enjoy the ride. While you might not be able to control everything, you can take charge of how you react to change and give yourself a better future.

Guest Blog: Stone Listeners have picked out Phosphosiderite

We, Marilyn and Tohmas Twintreess, directly and gratefully listen to Stonebeings and have for a long time (lifetimes actually).  It is the base of our international business/travel/services/workshops, evolution and FUN!!!  Literally.  Consider this:  The Mineral Kingdom is the bones of the Earth Mother; therefore it is the physical foundation for all life upon this planet.

In continually listening to the Stones, we discovered that physical base so rich that it is metaphysical as well.  Crystals support all life (You are reading this on a crystalline-based device aren’t you?) and all manifestation on all levels.  With them, there is nothing we cannot respectfully do and be.  For me and Tohmas, that is the basis of our personal, professional and spiritual life, and we are profoundly honored to share that with you. 

Through Insightful Inspirations’ generosity, we propose to listen to Stones specifically for you and your part of the world.  Monthly, we will ask the Stones which one wants to be offered to you for your particular healing and abundance, within that month’s cycle of learning and healing potential (according to the Earth Mother’s cycles).  Leanne will share that with you and if you say, “Yes!” you’ll be on adventure with a Stone that respectfully ASKED to come and support you.  Talk about a lovely, loving foundation for manifesting whatever you truly choose!!

We, Marilyn & Tohmas, will pass on the Stone information it asked us to tell you about its energy, and Leanne will share the 3D logistics of how to bring this Custom-Listened-to Stone into your life, and *Leanne, being the stellar healer and inspiration she is, also can facilitate you integrating the crystalline magic into your being: physically, emotionally, mentally, and psychically. 
Told you this ought to grab you!!!!
 
*Thanks to Leanne for making this program possible— for bringing it easily to fruition so you could readily drink in these benefits.  Few people on the planet are as quick to manifest magic as Leanne.  Y’all are very very blessed to have her in your midst and we are grateful to be co-partnering with her (and you) in such a profound, unique, sweet program as this!!  ROCK on!!!!

This month: Phosphosiderite

Phosphosiderite, Chile.JPG

“I connect with my own center and live from there forever.”

Good for heart chakra and physical body.  Works well with the new energies and integrates the body into present time.

The secret ingredient of success - YOU!

So often we spend our lives trying to fit in and conform to what people say they want from us. Most of the time, when we give people what they say they want, they still aren't happy. Why? Because what they really want is us, not some version of ourselves, modified to try and please them. We want genuine connections, ones that are freely given and offer us space to truly be ourselves as well.

The plight of the seeker - Understanding

What are you trying to "understand" better? What information are you trying to analyze, pick a part, think through? Are you in balance with it? Is it create ease and fun in your life or chaos and struggle? If it is creating chaos and struggle, can you let go of it a little bit. Let it show itself to you rather than you figuring it all out.

What is "Healing?"

What is healing anyway? Our relationship with the state of being unwell is often so uncomfortable that we can’t accept it. We criticize and blame ourselves and/or our conditions for making us unwell and focus all of our energy on understanding the problem.  As we focus on the problem, we expand it.  This expansion actually clarifies our desires through the reflection of what we don’t want.  Sometimes we get stuck there. So how can we heal?

Perspective - Can you change yours?

The law of attraction talks about the fact that what is in your life is what you have attracted into your life by magnetizing yourself to it. All other things are not in match with your vibration. But how do you get in alignment with that vibration is the big question of having more of what you want out of life.  The question becomes "How?!"

Are those mine or yours? - Contagious Emotions

Emotions seem to be the easiest thing to share amongst friends; it's almost like a virus. One person feels happy and passes on to the next and the next and so on. That is ideal... but not always how it goes.

More often one person in line is angry and yelling at the cashier which puts you in a "what is wrong with people?" mood which leads you to go home and yell at your kids, which makes them mad at the each other and so on. Emotions are contagious and the sooner we learn to recognize the difference between our emotions and the people we are with, the easier time we will have in knowing ourselves.

Empathy as a survival skill

Empathy is defined by dictionary.comas "the intellectual identification with or vicarious experiencing of the feelings, thoughts, or attitudes of another." If you are experiencing the feelings, thoughts or attitudes of another, how do you know you are acting in your own best interest and not the person you are empathizing with? If you are identifying with someone else's emotions and making decisions based on those emotions, they may not be right for you.

Empathy can be a survival skill. When we are born we can't talk yet and don't know much about the reality we have just arrived in. With this skill of empathy, we can read each others thoughts and emotions and make decisions on how we will engage with the environment.

"What am I really feeling?"

Things go off track when we don't know where our thoughts and feelings start and the other person's begin. We are always picking up on each other's energy in subtle ways. We feel each others state of mind and often change our behavior and feelings about the situation accordingly.

If you can begin to acknowledge when this sharing of energy is happening, you can begin to understand yourself more clearly and start setting new intentions. By paying attention to your ability to pick up on other people's thoughts and emotions, you begin to see when you are letting someone else's negativity win.

By becoming aware of how easily you change course based on what another person is doing or feeling you will be able to stop being a victim of others and empower yourself to dictate your mood and actions. 

What mood are you bringing to the room?

It is also helpful to observe those around you, especially children, as they pick up on your moods. Watch for that moment from when they switch over to what they were feeling independently to what they are feeling when they notice you.  Then ask yourself, is this how I want others to feel around me? 

You have more power than you think. If you walk into a room defensive and uptight, that is how the room will respond. This isn't to control how everyone else is feeling, but just to set an intention within yourself of the influence you want to be in the world. 

Two sides to every story

Being a mother of two square pegs that down right refuse to be put into round holes, I have had my fair share of struggles with the school system. As a mom it has required me to stay grounded in my truth. As a healer, it has tested my limits of compassion and understanding.

Perspectives

Our perspective in the world is very personal. Our filters of how we view a situation involves a complex brew of our past, our beliefs, our programs and our position in the situation. 

Where we sometimes get hung up is when we need to convince others to see our side as the only truth. But one person's experience does not have to invalidate your own. Each experience is its own and it isn't a requirement that the whole world have the same experiences as us to have our experience be true.

Two Sides To Every Story

Taking this a step further, in order to heal ourselves sometimes it is helpful to see truth in the other side of the story. You probably won't be able to see the other person's truth 100% because you are still using your filter, however, a compassionate view into the other side can offer a healing to you as well.

In my case, I might being inquiring into myself about what a teacher's story could possibly be. I do this while at the same time, hold space for my truth as well.

I can have compassion for the teacher who has a full class, with several children who have special needs, one of which loves to debate every rule and issue with a passive aggressive behavior that he has down to a science (that's mine.) Learning not to take that teacher's perspective personally is also a huge gift.

Looking at the other side of the story while holding space for our truth with compassion. Our side being that our child is very intelligent and has a very unique and useful personality. If he is guided in the right direction his talents for bucking status quo can take us all to a new level. 

Victim Energy

When you are doing this two sided work you are likely hanging onto the other side's perspective as a personal attack of some sort. You might even feel that there was a violation against you, at no fault of your own. Hanging on to these things isn't going to help you feel lighter, more connected and ready for the next thing. It will leave you feeling gun shy, bitter and resentful.

Release the victim before you inquire into the other side. Watch out for your need to defend your view point and make the other person wrong as you look. 

Reflection questions:

  • What is happening here really?
  • Why do you care what this person has done?
  • What does it matter?
  • Is it over and done with? If so, can you move on and forgive and forget? Why not? 
  • What parts of you feel wounded?
  • What feelings do you feel? Do you feel hurt? Angry? Betrayed?

In my situation my mothering is questioned when my children won't fit into the expectations of the school. That hits me to the core and I want to prove is wrong, no matter what. But here is the catch, I don't have to prove it wrong!

I am a wonderful mother to my children. I know this and do my best with them every day.  But I had to heal this part of myself, realizing that some part of me must have wondered if she was right. Otherwise, why would I care?

The other thing that pokes me to the core is a perception that teachers believe that my children are "bad" in some way. Again, I want to prove that wrong. This is more about me wanting to see the world accept my unique child without question. I so badly want the world to accept me too. Again, perfect place to work on healing myself.  By looking at this I can allowing both my children and I to accept ourselves as we are, rather than trying to convince the world to accept us. Teaching them to love themselves first, then listen to the input of others.

Your turn

Take a step back from your head on a situation your are struggling with. Use this moment in your life as ways to heal yourself and look into things further, rather than injure yourself through painful lenses of hurt and victimization.

Love yourself for bringing these scenarios into your life to teach you what you want to learn as a spirit. Embrace them, rather than be victimized by them. Use both sides of the story to bring you clarity and safety to explore the truths that are trying to shine through.

Sending unconditional love and light your way this week.

Taking Responsibility Without Beating Yourself up

Our thoughts are our magic, our intentions are spells cast to make them happen. Everything around you is something you have created. Good or bad...no exceptions. The key is to start taking responsibility for what you have created. Own it, use it for your highest good and the highest good of the planet...see what happens next. 

The downside of knowing this is people often beat themselves up for what they are creating. They shame themselves into things instead of embracing the truth about the law of attraction. Shaming uses the law of attraction's power in a way that feels heavy with responsibility and actually blocks desires and manifestations.

Our unconscious mantra creating our realities

An unconscious mantra is the things we say out loud or in our head to ourselves without even paying attention to what we are saying that works as an incantation or prayer to the universe. In other words the announcements we make out loud that bring more of the same into our lives. How do we identify these mantras and change them?
