Raising Energy Without Caffeine

There’s so much to be done and things are overwhelming. The sink is filled with dishes and the laundry pile is rapidly growing. Who ever has enough time in the day to get caught up when we’re already behind? The kids need supervision, the husband is home for lunch, and the shower…. shower? Who has time for that? I already feel awful for being behind and I have no energy at all. I need to raise my energy level!

raising energy without caffiene

A house doesn’t fall that far behind in an hour and it won’t get caught up in an hour either. We need to cut ourselves some slack in the shame department. No one needs to be shamed and besides, shame is not a healthy motivator.

There the dishes sit, in the sink, piled high.

  • Do you ever just look at the kitchen sink and say, “ugh”?
  • Do you just walk away and leave it like that?
  • Is your kitchen counter covered in a week’s worth of mail to sort through?
  • Has this ever happened to you when a friend calls to see if she can stop by and
  • you’re suddenly overwhelmed with how to get it all done before she gets there?

You sigh and decline to have her come by, because its just too overwhelming for you.

Today, I wanna give you a glimpse into a portion of this intuitive process I use when I just don’t feel like cleaning.
This home revolution I experienced was more than just sweeping under the rugs or mopping the floor.
It’s more than just housework.

It was my own personal adventure through my home and with each corner that I cleared away,

I found the ability to release things that had encumbered me.

Twenty-plus years of trappings needed to be dusted off and cleared away.

I didn’t have to focus so much on what needed to be tossed, because I was focusing on releasing those things so my happy thoughts could rise to the top and be seated in their place of honor.

I had resisted those dusty old boxes, because of the memories they held.

Some weren’t so good and I didn’t want to re-live those dark days. Keeping my vision cleared for what I WANTED in my life empowered me to let go. The more I let go, the more liberated I became.

It’s an ongoing odyssey which I fully embrace.

To embark on this soulful pilgrimage takes courage, but no more courage than it takes to simply open your eyes in the morning.
Putting your mental energy into thinking about what you don’t want is still giving attention to those things. To be truly free takes personal discipline to NOT think of those things.

The question isn’t “how do I stop thinking of these things?” Its not about ‘how do I stop thinking of that messy kitchen?’ How can I NOT think about it when all those dishes are just sitting there?

The question is “what do I WANT to spend my time thinking about?” Then actually following through with thinking of those good things. Its about thinking of your clean kitchen, because that’s what you want to manifest.

Think of something that makes you happy, even if you don’t have it in your life right now.

Here’s an example, I’m currently sitting in my office at the computer, but the sun is bright and cheery, beckoning me, but I have work to do.

Kinda makes me not wanna work, but work must get done.

Here’s my process for raising energy;

I’m thinking of sitting at the beach with my bare feet in the warm sand.

Now I elaborate on that thought.

I’m thinking of sitting at the beach on a comfortable chair, with my bare feet in the warm sand and the sun is the perfect temperature on my skin.

Next, I close my eyes and expand that thought much further.

I’m thinking of sitting at the beach on a comfortable chair, with my bare feet in the warm sand and the sun is the perfect temperature on my skin. I see sailboats gliding across the waves and hear the waves crashing on the shore. The aroma of the salty breeze is grounding me and I feel the sea mist gently resting on my face.

I let this thought sink deeply within me, as if I’m there already.

I breathe deeply, smile, and feel it in the depth of my soul.

This is how you raise positive emotions in yourself and then pivot yourself in a positive direction. Now I’m working quickly, with excitement, because I know I’ll be walking over to the beach as soon as I’m done.

Use this same approach in your intuitive home solutions.

Don’t think about the messy kitchen. Think about your clean kitchen, because that’s what you want to manifest.
Imagine the clean kitchen with a fresh lime scent and lit candles on the counter.

Visualize the sink being clean and dry, the window sill wiped down, and the floor clean enough to walk barefoot on.
In your mind, have an invisible chat with a friend over coffee or tea. Have some baked cookies on a plate to offer your friend.
Feel the emotions that come with that imagery.

This is how you raise your positive emotions up to motivate you to get the kitchen clean. You’re no longer thinking of the messy kitchen, you’re thinking of what you want to manifest, having your friend over for coffee.

The most rewarding part about it is when you do have that friend over and you know you’ve created this space just for you and the friend.

You will have not only raised the energy needed to get the kitchen clean, but you’ve raised your emotions to a positive level about your relationship with your friend.

You can diffuse lime essential oil into the air just before your friend arrives, for a softer aroma blend with lavender.

I hope you enjoyed this simple process. If you did, please subscribe to my blog and visit me at YouTube for the videos.

Have an intuitive day!

Sweeping Away the Negativity

I used to be quite diligent in writing about matters of faith, of which I enjoy doing. However, the more I listened to the spirit of grace guiding my thoughts and soul, the more opposition I got..from people in the religious community. It became a battle every time I posted a new article. Friends, isn’t it tiring to be yourself with some people? I got tired of being attacked by people who lived in fear of every little thing I’d say, and who would respond with a verbal battle ax. Exhausting, I tell ya! What ever happened to respecting a person’s freedom in their spirituality and better yet, trusting in GOD to guide the person? Why do so many zealots think they can do a better job than God can?

There were some who enjoyed my writing and asked me to continue on, but for my own sanity I had to stop. Not only did I stop writing about it, I stopped reading other blogs of religious nature. I couldn’t read comment sections without becoming furious at seeing how the same people were wielding their tongues to anyone who held a different perspective than they did. I took a rather lengthy break from it all and kept my writing to the topics of essential oils, herbal remedies, and blog legality issues. My only writing about spirituality was in a Word document on my computer.

I made a point of developing new friendships with people who understood my journey and who supported me. I had questions and looked for those who have ‘been there, done that’ to get balanced feedback. I searched for compassionate souls who were mature enough to respond to me with integrity and honesty. What a breath of fresh air!

My journey has taken me on a fascinating adventure with essential oils and crystals, for which I am truly thankful to have discovered. I feel I am finally at a place in my path where I can write about this (publicly) and hopefully I can be of assistance to others who have been curious and yet battle those same fears. I get it. I know the difficulty in pursuing an interest when those around you oppose anything different than what they’ve been taught to believe.

You’re not alone.

A life of faith should not be approached with fear. Fear is in total opposition to faith. Fear holds you back, while faith propels you forward.

As I further my writing about my spiritual path, it’s going to take faith. Whether what I say resonates with you or not, I don’t hold authority over you or anyone else. I believe the Gospel gives us freedom to decide for ourselves. I’m not going to go extensively into ‘what the bible says’ about anything other than to live in the freedom we are given.

I’m just really tired of the bible arguments and I’m quite certain God is too.

As of today, with this very article, I sweep away the negativity, the verbal arguments, and the battle axes that have been waved in my direction. Be gone.

This coming Summer Solstice will mark a special day for me in my journey. You’re welcome to join me in celebration of our freedom or simply walk away. No more arguing.

Blessed Be.

Why I use Essential Oils and Crystals in my daily practice

After being deeply involved in fundamental Christianity for nearly twenty years, it was quite a step of faith to become curious about essential oils and crystals. I honestly think my years of experience with the charismatic community gave me a nudge in this direction. I had experienced spiritual intuition before and was led to believe it was God’s gifting in my life. Shortly after I began learning about that, the notion of God working through me in spiritual ways was knocked off kilter by a fundamental pastor who cast doubt on me. I was told that these experiences were “of the devil” and though I stopped searching for teaching about it, my soul still stirred in me.

It was through our departure from that rigid belief system (and its community) that I felt more free to ask questions about the experiences I had. Though I stopped asking questions for so many years, I never stopped having those experiences. Vivid dreams were a consistent part of my life, I could sense the presence of other entities, and I could ‘see’ and ‘hear’ things through various things people said and in movies I watched. In hindsight, I believe my intuition remained true to me and my gift never left my life.

During the last few years of curiosity, I discovered how much I had allowed fear to be my guide. In my bible study time, the Spirit would speak to me about faith, but my body would doubt and fall victim to walking this life with fear, anxiety, and doubt. It was by faith that I began truly embracing the gift I had been given.

One of the things I learned was just how positive the teachings are. When I’ve read about using essential oils and crystals, the philosophy is very uplifting. There is a wide range to which you can draw from. Each essential oil and crystal offers a variety of uses and your intuition will guide you to which use you have need of.

In my previous years of doubt, I often became frustrated with my relationship with God. We could never really know “God’s will for our lives”, because most of the time the ‘word’ we got through religious avenues was that God’s will was for us to keep giving money and donating our time to “build the church”. However, my gifts were not useful for such a feat. My gifts were sensitive, I could pick up on dishonesty and anxiety in people, I knew when someone needed to be called for support. My intuition revealed to me when underhanded things were happening and eventually we knew it was time to leave. We could no longer help where the leadership wanted to silence me and halt my gifts from being useful to those who needed it.

I understand there are healthier spiritual communities out there, but after leaving that one we decided it was time to help those outside the walls of religion. It was time I fully embraced my gifts, learn how to listen to the Spirit, and trust in this journey.

The more I learned how to follow my intuition, the greater blessings I saw come to fruition. The more I practiced, learned, and sought the spirit within me the stronger my intuition became.

When I started reading about the emotional uses of essential oils and how to intuitively know which one I need, a whole other world of healing opened up for me. When I was introduced to crystals, I had my skepticism. Then I came into contact with a crystal and felt drawn to it. When I read what that particular crystal represented, my jaw dropped. It held properties that could assist me with what I had been struggling with. It supported those who struggled with rigid belief systems and toxic thoughts about myself.

Together, essential oils and crystals have nudged me to deeper healing than I ever thought possible. They are tools in my spiritual tool box. If God can speak to humans through a donkey, angels, and even through children, He can certainly speak to me through essential oils and crystals. If God can provide manna from the sky and food delivered by birds, then he has the power to feed me in whatever manner he chooses.

Now I use them in my daily practice. I have crystals by my bedside for when I wake up and when I go to sleep. I have essential oils to assist me in waking up and in settling in for the night. I carry some crystals in my purse to remind me of my worth and I have a keychain full of mini essential oil bottles to support me throughout the day no matter where I might be.

All of these remind me of my worth, to love and receive love, to be healed and to heal others. They remind me to be empowered to move forward in my life and leave the toxicity behind.

Some have mocked me, accused me of going down the slippery slope, and others have written me off completely. All over having a different spiritual practice. It’s their fear that leads them to dismiss a life long friend over something like this. Essential oils and crystals are part of creation itself. There’s no reason to fear them or demonize them.

I trust that the Universe will send me the kind of friends that can love beyond the walls of rigid belief systems.

Blessed Be.
