Two words.

MERCURY RETROGRADE.

Everyday things like technology and schedules become increasingly slower which can result in many eye rolls and long drawn out gasps. BUT, Mercury Retrograde also brings the importance reminder of slowing down.

A powerful 30 minute New Years Eve Ritual

2019 is coming to an end. Not just 2019, but a full decade is coming full circle. I have been trying to wrap my head around that information for a couple of months now. 

 

The last decade of my life has been a wild, intense, roller coaster ride filled with tears, pain, growth, and spiritual healing and transformation. But I can honestly say, that I'm ready for it to be over.

 

I am writing this blog post because I wanted to share with you a practice/ritual that you can do to reign in the new year, or whenever you feel called to use it.

You can adjust this ritual to your liking. That's the great thing about your spiritual practice. It's yours. You get to customize it as you wish.

 

Well, here goes nothing!

3 TOOLS TO HELP YOU STOP QUESTIONING YOUR ABILITIES

You have had countless cosmic downloads, you have intuitively picked up on people and certain situations, you have felt the presence of spirit around, but you are still doubting yourself. You are still labeling things coincedences, or just labeling yourself a “really great guesser.” Why? Why are you still stuck in the phase of your spiritual awakening where you become at war with yourself and your connection to your soul, to the universe, to all that is?

 

I’ll tell you the answer. It is because you are still giving too much power away to your ego. Your ego is a collection of thoughts abd beliefs we carry around.

 

The ego is a collection of ideas we carry around.

I am what I have

I am what I do

I am my reputation

I am separate from everybody else

I am separate from god

 

“Ego” is the aspects of your yourself that you consider to be “you.” A perfect example of this is a brief self-inquiry assessment.

Ways to cleanse and clear your energy

Cleansing your energy as well as the spaces you spend most of your time in is a vital step is establishing a clear, sanctuary that allows us to raise our vibrations. My husband to this day shakes his head when I whip out my smudge stick and start opening up all of the windows and doors to our home. 

“Is that really necessary?” He will ask. I simply turn around and look at him straight faced and say “Do you want to take a bath in dirty water?”

 

The Famous Psychic Medium John Edward, whom is also a huge inspiration and mentor to me (he just doesn’t know it.) Spoke about the Importance of Energy Cleansing in his book, The Infinite Quest. He simply stated ‘Don’t you usually clean your house before having guests over for a visit? So why not do an energy cleanup to go along with the physical tidying up? You won’t be the only one to notice not just how nice the place looks, but also how good it feels.”

A light workers opinion on judgement.

“The ego cannot survive without judgement”

-A Course in Miracles

 

Like most people, I used to feel superior over others. Whether it was someone of a lesser moral compass, a spider that was inhabiting my home, or someone whom our beliefs and values were not copesthetic; I judged. I created an opinion about this person or thing and then decided that we were not equal and that I was superior. Judgement is natural. Whether you believe yourself to be a judgmental being or not – you judge. Our egos have made it this way. Just like how we categorize ourselves with labels, we do the same thing to others.

 

We call a woman who wears tight dresses and has an active sex life a slut.

We call a father who does not pay child support and does not see his children a dead-beat dad.

We a call a child who behaves and listens to adults a good kid.

We a call a mother who takes care of her children and has patience a good mom.

 

Whether the label be positive or negative,...

What is the 'ego' ?

What is the ‘ego’?

 As much as I love the Queen B, her hit single “ego” got the concept and definition of ego totally wrong. When we think ego, we think arrogance conceit. This is just an incredibly small portion of what the ego is.

The ego is a collection of ideas we carry around.

I am what I have

I am what I do

I am my reputation

I am separate from everybody else

I am separate from god

 

“Ego” is the aspects of yourself that you consider to be “you.” A perfect example of this is a brief self-inquiry assessment.

 

Who are you? I’m Erica.

Who is Erica? Erica is a female, she is a wife, and she is a mother.

Did Erica exist before she become a wife and mother? Well.. Yes.

So then who were you before you were a wife and mother? I was Erica.

Who is Erica? She is me.

Who is me? I’m Erica. I am me.

Well, that cannot be, because I am ME too.

Are we both ME? Well you are me for you and I am me for me.

Who is me? I...

5 Things I have learned in the first year of podcasting.

Podcasting. It's the new radio.

More and more entrepenuers are flocking to podcasting(myself included.) Why? Becuase it is a fantastic tool to help you engage with your audience, grow your business, and allow your personality to come through so YOUR audience gets to know YOU, and not just the services and products you sell.

 For me, I toyed around with the idea of podcasting for a full year before I finally bit the bullet and started the processing of starting my own podcast. To be honest, I wish I had done this sooner.

Starting my podcast and being able to connect with like minded people whether it be via my listeners or my guests, has been such an amazing experience. Since starting my podcast last year, there has been a couple of things I have learned that I want to share with you about my podcasting journey.

OPEN YOUR THIRD EYE (Exercise)

Find a place where you can sit comfortably and relax. I highly recommend you do this practice sitting up rather than laying down, and when you do it you want to have your spine aligned upright, straight and vertical (so don’t lean back in your chair… But rather sit on the edge with your back perfectly straight).

Sit in an upright position,

close your eyes,

and shift your awareness within,

focusing on your heart center.

Allow your heart to open, filling with golden light. Allowing your inner divine solar light to brightly shine within your heart center, and as you tune into this just take a few minutes to breathe, relax and become fully present in this moment now.

As you allow your heart to open, by focusing your attention within it’s center,

Tune into the tingling, warmth and glowing light within.

Allow your awareness to enter into the center of your heart,

moving deeper and deeper within with your awareness

until you feel your heart light begin to...

5 Tools to Strengthen your Mediumship

Being a medium is a trying journey. It makes you heal relationships, beliefs, past hurts. It makes you put on your big girl panties and deal! 

My mediumship journey has been a wild ride. Some days I feel unstoppable and strongly connected to spirit, other days, I want to hide under my comforter with my eyes closed shut.

Whether you are a seasoned medium with years of experience or you are just coming into this connection you have with spirit, one thing is certain.

 

WE ARE HUMAN.

We are not indestructible.

We do not have all the answers.

We feel the same negative and positive emotions as anyone else.

and last but not least, when we lose someone we love, it still sucks.

 

 

And here you are. Reading this. Still wanting to strengthen your connection to the spirit world and help heal others. I commend you for your strength. 

 

I felt guided to write this blog because I too, am always looking to find ways that I can deepen my connection to spirit.
