To Protect or not to protect?

I love looking at different trains of thoughts in the spiritual/metaphysical world and be the devils advocate sometimes. 

A few years ago I saw a meetup in my area for a mediumship development group.

Cool. 

I was looking to network with energy workers in my area, I had my ‘tribe’ but most of them were an hour or more away. I was looking to expand my circle. I decided to attend. 

It took place just down the street from me, in a lovely gathering room in a holistic business. After a few min, about a dozen or so people showed up. People of all different walks of life were there. 

We all settled in. The gentleman running it gave his speech about who he was and what he hoped to achieve during this meetup. I got the indication that most of the people there had been a few times. 

To be honest, I was checking out the people in attendance trying to figure out who was going to be my newest bestie! 

I did hear him explain on his ‘rules’ to making contact with spirits on the other side…

“Always attempt to make contact inside. If you are outside, then you never know who you are going to connect with. This way you have control over the process”

WHAAATTTTT??????????”Let me control who and what comes in.”

You can control it???????? I had gone from picking out my new BFF to thinking WTF?! ..still trying to figure out how he could justify the belief that spirits could pass between realms will get completely stymied by a door? Do we need to make sure the windows are down too?

I couldn’t help myself, so I raised my hand and asked why.

First off,by the look on all my potential best friends faces, I could tell friendship was not on the table anymore. 

The leader kept it together during my outburst questioning his directions. His reasoning had something to do with protection. He disagreed with me concerning consciousness being able to transverse building materials….. I let him have it, I still had a few hours there and it was his party after all. 

The next part  was a prayer for protection. 

Ok, sigh, this is my biggest bugaboo. I truly wasn’t looking to start a problem. Truly I wasn’t. I just wanted to present my own opinion in order for the people  to realize there was another school of thought.

I presented my view, which is something I learned in my years studying Shamanism. That protection, or the idea that protection is needed inherently has a fear base to it. Fear is a  lower vibration, and like attracts like. In a nutshell. 

That is it. I  put my opinion out there. and was then prepared to go forward with the prayer of protection. 

I was attacked. ATTACKED. It was funny actually. One woman, who had read “hundreds of books” told me, in a very loud voice, pointing her finger in my face, that i would be sorry, oh so very sorry if I didn’t hop on board the protection train.

The room was filled with fear. 

If lower vibrational experiences came in, no surprise. 

Free will. 

Believe what you choose to, but think before jumping on the protection wagon. If you can, from the beginning learn to transmute energy, change the vibration of it, you will never need to protect yourself and you will be able to deal with whatever comes your way!

You will be a superhero!

True Story


Rising and Keeping your vibrations high!

4 Mar, 2016, 

  • Become conscious of your thoughts. Everything you think, say or feel becomes your reality. …
  • Find something beautiful and appreciate it. …
  • Be conscious of the foods you eat. …
  • Drink water. …
  • Meditate. …
  • Be grateful. …
  • Practice acts of kindness. …
  • Get your blood pumping

  • The above are the results when I Googled “how to raise your vibrations”I agree and then I feel the need to add “yes, but…”Let me preface this… I think when you are starting out on a path to explore yourself, metaphysics, spirituality… the above ways to rise your vibration are excellent suggestions. However once you incorporate the above into your life, maybe you start to be aware of your thoughts and inner dialogue. You make conscious choices as to what you bring into your life, what you put in your body. You start practicing gratefulness. You start seeing the world through new eyes. You start seeing others, not as adjuncts to your life, but as another precious soul on a similar journey as you. Is that it? Well, it depends. Do you want to go even further? Do you want to delve even deeper into the whys of energy, your own and the universe? Unravel some truths about yourself and your mission here? There is no definitive list as to what will rise and keep your vibrations high. As your vibrations rise and you reach a new normal, then it will take something a little different to keep you on that trajectory.  Healing is a major way to keep your vibrations on the upswing. What needs to be healed? Ohh grasshopper….two schools of thought. We are already healed and perfect. We just have to realize and embrace that truth.  Other thoughts are we have emotional wounds from both past and present lives that we carry with us in our energy field. These dense (energetically) spots keep the Chi, or energetic life flow from flowing freely as it enters us from spirit. These dense spots correspond to the chakra system and issue that originally caused the wrong belief that needs healing. For example. Say as a child you spilled a glass of milk and were yelled at by a parent. Your 2 year old mind processed that information as being bad and unworthy. The reality could have been that the parent was tired, multi tasking and just had a moment where they snapped. No real reflection on you as a child. Or your parent was not a nice person and you got this a lot… we will go with the former for the sake of this example. The 2 year old you physically held on to this belief in your 1st Chakra. Belief in your right to be here.Into adulthood, perhaps you mess up around a loved once, boyfriend, girlfriend, teacher and you tighten up.You may or may not be getting the same reaction from your loved one but your body is reacting as if you are. Why? Because you internalized the belief of being unworthy. And your body responds to that . Once that is healed, not only can your relationship with yourself and your loved ones deepen, but the energy coming in directly from spirit is that  much less impeded.. Your vibrations will naturally rise without the energetic speed bumps in your aurora! The above is a very simplified example of a block. They are more complex and individual. But I hope you get the idea. The (never) last word on how to rise your vibration is to constantly work on identifying energetic blocks and work on healing them . 

  • What is the meaning of life?


    3 Mar, 2016, 

    Most of us wonder, at one point or another, what the meaning of life is. There are meany answers to this…. I actually Googled “the meaning of life” (all lower case, because i am a lazy typist)

    It came right before “the meaning of Christmas” (I appropriately capitalized to reduce the possibility of hate mail, besides being a lazy typist i try to avoid confrontation about things i don’t really care about)

    First up there was an on line dictionary definition of “life”, then (natch) Wikipedia , then a movie… then quotes….

    I like this one…..

    You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life. Albert Camus

    and this one….

    For the meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day and from hour to hour. What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person’s life at a given moment. Viktor E. Frankl

    ohh… but this one……

    We can think so much about life and take ourselves so seriously; I mean, I like to tell people, ‘Don’t take life too seriously’ because you’ll cloud the experience. That’s what the meaning of life is to me - being able to enjoy the moment. Janine Shepherd

    It seems like a lot of people have quotes about what life is all about. Somewhere between living life as a sleepwalker, going through the motions, and fitting yourself into the mold you feel society has handed you and the paralyzing place of too many choice and too much information on what/who you need to be in order to reach your ‘potential’ there has to be the sweet spot of a well lived life. 

    What does that mean for you? 

    I am still figuring out what it means for me.  What I do know is it needs to include creativity. Maybe chickens (I have been toying with that lately), independence and mostly it needs to include growth. Through all my years studying energy at it’s most basic within the defines of Shamanism, I have come to believe that we all come to this lifetime with a job or jobs to do. My high achievement side will not let me to get done here without doing what i came here to do. 

    Only, I don’t quite know what that is. I somehow managed to misplace that little post it note. 

    All i can do is remain open to all possibilities, work to transcend my container (the limiting beliefs and labels that keep us from being to reach our ultimate potential) and keep my vibration as high as possible in order to be open to what will be coming in.

    Oh my god. I have never in my life written a sentence so airy-fairy and reeking of unicorns andrainbows! hah
