Are you a Highly Sensitive person?

Posted by on May 21, 2018 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

 

Just about everyone I spend time with, my friends, family, students and other spiritual teachers, is highly sensitive. I attribute that fact not only to the Spiritual work that I do, but because as humans, we are drawn to like-minded people. And, while the sensitive people I know do share certain character traits, like intuition, empathy, and compassion, they’re by no means cookie-cutter copies of one another!

As a highly sensitive person, you have a good feel for other people. Your emotional intelligence draws people to you. When dealing with others, you instinctively know what “makes them tick” and you have a knack for making them feel valued and understood. But guess what? You might spend so much time tuned into other people that you don’t think about your own needs.

So, my sensitive friend, I urge you to take a few minutes to focus on yourself. You can start now by taking a look at the questions below and checking off the ones that apply to you.

  1. Do you often have difficulty letting go of negative thoughts and emotions?
  2. Do you feel physical symptoms when something unpleasant happens?
  3. Have you often been told you’re too sensitive or emotional?
  4. Do you walk into a room and sense the mood?
  5. Do you tend to beat yourself up about even little things?
  6. Do you feel there’s something different or “wrong” with you?
  7. Do you feel close to nature and animals?
  8. Do you tend to take things personally?
  9. Do you often worry about what others are thinking?
  10. Are you easily startled?
  11. Do you find it difficult to just let things go?
  12. Do you easily take on other people’s problems and emotions – as if they’re your own?. Do you tend to keep your emotions bundled up inside?
  13. Do you feel awkward in group situations?
  14. Do large crowds drain your energy?
  15. Do you feel uncomfortable when around bright lights or strong smells?
  16. Do you have difficulty asking for what you want? Do you tend to settle for less?
  17. Do you have a hard time accepting criticism?
  18. Do you tend to reach for food or other substances when stressed?

How many questions did you answer yes to? Five or more confirms what I suspected! You are a Highly Sensitive Person or HSP for short.

Now let’s dig deeper to find out how your sensitivity shows up. What kind of HSP are you? Answer these questions by selecting the response that is MOST like you:

When you walk into a party or large gathering, the first thing you notice is:

  1. The noise level, lighting, and how many people are crowded in the room.
  2. How welcoming the crowd is – are people staying in closed groups or mingling and meeting new people.
  3. The undercurrents in the room. Is someone angry or worried or is there tension any of the guests.
  4. What drinks and snacks are being served.

In romantic relationships, you enjoy:

  1. Setting the mood with soft music, candles and massage.
  2. Sharing your feelings, and encouraging your partner to reveal their fears, hopes and dreams.
  3. Predicting what the future has in store for both of you.
  4. Attending concerts, movies and plays.

Your ideal job is one where:

  1. There’s a lovely environment with lots of light, and you have a comfortable office or cubicle.
  2. The culture is key! People are warm and friendly and spend time together in and out of the office.
  3. There is the potential for new inventions, innovations and growth.
  4. The pay is generous and you have the freedom to take time off.

As a young child, your happiest memories were of:

  1. Spending time at the park or the ocean.
  2. Having sleepovers and sharing secrets with close friends.
  3. “Playing pretend” and imagining yourself in exciting scenarios.
  4. Receiving a gift that you’d longed for.

At a museum, you gravitate toward:

  1. Exhibits of photography, especially black and white photos of natural settings.
  2. Losing yourself in the work of impressionists like Monet and Degas, with visible light and soft colors.
  3. Studying modern, abstract art, where you can try to decipher what the artist is trying to convey.
  4. Traveling exhibits, or whatever is currently popular.

If you selected mostly a’s: You’re physically sensitive. Easily overwhelmed by crowds, noise and bright lights, the Physically Sensitive Person is happiest in small groups, sharing meaningful conversation with friends. Make sure to create a healthy, uncluttered environment for yourself at home and at the office. To recharge, spend some quality time with yourself – meditating, reading or enjoying nature.  

If you selected mostly b’s: You’re empathically sensitive. You easily tune into what others are feeling, and you always know the right thing to say. You’re famous for being a good listener, which makes you a popular friend and co-worker. The downside is that you can become burdened by the energy of others – so take time to ground yourself with a salt bath, time in the garden, or a walk in the woods! 

If you selected mostly c’s: You’re intuitively sensitive. Your sensitivity goes far beyond what you can see, hear and touch. You “know” what is going on behind the scenes, and sometimes get handy tips from your guides, angels and your own inner knowing. People seek you out when faced with a dilemma that they can’t solve, and value your unique insights. The constant barrage of messages and impressions can drain your energy – so for your own protection, make sure you learn how to regulate your frequency.

If you selected mostly d’s: You’re “Semi-Sensitive.” You take the practical approach, keeping your sensitivity in check most of the time. You do a good job of living in the moment and practicing self-care. Increasing your level of mindful focus when around others will deliver some rewarding benefits to yourself and those around you.

Here are SEVEN reasons you might need a retreat!

Posted by on May 12, 2018 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Refreshed, restored, and ready to tackle my life again.

More and more women are choosing to take retreats rather than regular vacations these days. According to Pamela Madsen, author of Shameless and founder of The American Fertility Association, women are seeking more from their time off, particularly if they’re somewhere near 40 years old.

“These women are on a mission to find something bigger in their own lives,” Madsen says. “And though retreats can be pricy, for many women, taking a retreat is not considered a luxury item. Instead, retreat taking has become a part of their ritual self-care; carefully scheduled into their yearly calendar.”

Might you be in need of a retreat?

Women Taking More Retreats!

As women, we’re still trying to do it all. We’re focused on getting an education, being successful in our chosen occupations, and staying healthy while doing it. We want to be good moms and good wives, and we want to continue helping take care of our parents. All of this can leave us feeling spent and drained, to the point where we need more than just a few days off—we need a way to recharge.

Many of us at midlife are also looking for answers. We’re not sure we want to continue in the same way as we have for the last twenty years. We may want to make some changes, but we’re not sure exactly what to change.

“A woman’s spiritual retreat is a type of pilgrimage,” a sacred journey that you take when you need to get away from daily stresses, and at the same time, have a deep yearning of self discovery and desire for greater awareness and connection to our Source.”

Reasons to Take a Retreat

Here are a few reasons why you may need a retreat, and soon.

  1. Self Care: We’re slowly getting the message that when we’re spent and burned out, we’re no good to anyone. A retreat can be very restorative, and leave you ready to be your old self again—which may be a great blessing to those around you!
  2. Healing: Many people had a rough year in 2012. Natural disasters, economical difficulties, crime, illnesses, and more were part of our lives, and most of us didn’t have time to step back and process it all. A retreat can help you do this. Particularly if you’ve come through a difficult personal experience like a death or divorce, a retreat may be just what you need to process those difficult feelings.
  3. Spiritual Renewal: Women, particularly, like feeling connected to something beyond themselves. Exploring and deepening your relationship to nature and God (or your chosen spiritual source) can bring you some much-needed peace.
  4. Finding Purpose: There may be times in your life when you feel like you’re out of step with your purpose. Maybe you thought you were fulfilling it for the last decade, but now you’re feeling the nagging intuition that it’s time for something to change. A retreat gives you the peace and quiet you need to really explore your feelings and get to the core of the changes you need to make.
  5. Female Connections: Even if you regularly spend time with your girlfriends, a retreat offers a unique opportunity to connect with other like-minded women. The activities are different from the norm, which I find encourages deeper conversations and faster bonding. The connections you make at retreats can sustain you in a unique way.
  6. Experience Something New: A retreat gives you the excuse to try something different, to step out of your comfort zone and experience yourself in a new way. You see new things, experience new ways of living, and give yourself options for how you may want to make changes when you get back home. Maybe you want to incorporate more medication into your daily life, for example, or schedule a regular massage a couple times a month? In other words, a retreat can get you out of a rut.
  7. Connect to What We Love: When was the last time you really felt an inner sense of joy? When did you delight to wake up just because you loved being alive? A retreat where you spend time in a beautiful outdoor setting, use your body in new and refreshing ways, and please your senses in ways you usually don’t have time for, can open your heart up to the joy in your life once again.

Manifest the Life You Want in 2018

Posted by on Jan 7, 2018 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

I’d like to share a manifestation ritual that I’ve made my New Year’s tradition; it’s a burning bowl ceremony. We usually perform it on New Year’s Eve but it can certainly be done other days of the year. It’s a way to let go of all things negative that we hold onto — and burn them away. It’s also a way to manifest things into your life by taking a moment of self reflection and putting thought and energy into what you really want for yourself. It is unapologetic and it is your own personal almanac to release into the realm of possibilities. To prepare yourself for this you need to ask yourself “What would I like to release going into 2018? What would I like to create in 2018?”

So, you’re probably thinking “oh great, why is she telling us this now?” You can do this powerful ritual anytime you want to release old negative ideas and clear the mind clutter for abundance to come into your life!

On a piece of paper, write out all the things that no longer serve you or that you would like to release. It could be related to fears, guilts, regrets — essentially anything that you view as negative in your life. When you’re finished writing take the paper and burn it. I use a large glass bowl and I burn it in the bowl outside as a precaution. When burning the paper, visualize the smoke as negativity being released from you. If burning the paper is absolutely not an option for you then take the paper and tear it up into as many pieces as possible and throw it away. Visualize the tiny pieces of paper as a fine powder that turns smokey so you can release the negativity in the same manor as the burning.

Now, take in a deep breath and imagine a pink light surrounds you. As you inhale, visualize the pink light flooding your entire physical body. Hold your breath for a moment while envisioning all the things you would like to release. Then release your breath, visualizing it as a grey mist coming from your mouth. Continue this a few times until you feel the pressure released from your heart and chest area. This should be an emotional release as you breath away all the negative emotions that were associated with what was written on the burned piece of paper.

Then, on a new piece of paper write out all of the things you would like to create and accomplish in 2018. You may want to start this with:

In 2018, I create…

Or

 Spirit please guide me in 2018 in creating…

Strive to write everything down in the present tense. Such as:

I am abundant

I have joy…

I am healthy….

I attract loving and healthy relationships into my life…

Once you have finished this process, fold the paper and hold it in between both your hands, visualizing white light flowing from your hands and into the paper. Silently say a prayer asking your higher power to assist you with your creation in the year ahead.

Once you have finished this process, seal your folded paper in an envelope. On the front of the envelope, write, “I create in 2018.”

Now the difficult part… Put the envelope in a safe place or give it to someone you trust to return the envelope to you next New Years Eve. Don’t look at it until then.  Forgetting what you wrote down will allow your higher self to attract the people and circumstances necessary for your desires to come to fruition.

Next new Year’s Eve open the envelope and see how much of what you wrote down has come come true! I’ve been so amazed in the past at the things I forgot I had written down and manifested through this exercise.

When we visualize our life the way we want it to be we are giving energy to something that can manifest those things. This is why releasing the negative thoughts and beginning to focus on positive outcomes is so crucial to attaining happiness. By writing down what we want in the present tense we are imagining our life as if those things are already true, no questions, no worries, no doubts. We are in control of our own destiny. Never underestimate your own power to manifest in your life. You must practice the art of it. It is a form of prayer. May your 2018 be filled with prosperity, abundance, and love!

To make it easier for you, here are ten steps for spiritual attraction:
  1. Follow your heart. Live a more satisfying life by letting your heart calling guide you. …
  2. Tune into the Soul. …
  3. See the big picture. …
  4. Develop emotional self-mastery. …
  5. Align to your truth. …
  6. Follow your intuition. …
  7. Keep your head clear. …
  8. Believe in yourself..
  9. Act!
  10. Keep the Faith….
