Oct 12th & 13th: Getting our mojo back!

14718632_1147007945380989_6310251552953233985_n
We are FINALLY through a shadow period that began on the equinox last month. It’s been a really quiet few weeks with lots of introspection, physical tiredness, and integration. Today is a day of emergence and we’re getting our mojo back! Are you feeling like yourself again? Tomorrow the 13th will be even more powerful day of alignment with all that you truly are. We are emerging from specific healing energies from the Sept equinox and some from the June solstice time period as well. We have the energy and vibration available to us to now to feel stronger than we’ve felt in a very long time. Think back to a time when money was flowing, or relationships came easy or synchronously, or you just felt healthy and happy in your body. This is available to you again right now. Claim it! ūüĆüSometimes just knowing it’s easy available is exactly what we need to align to it.
Love and Blessings

Fixing Money Blockages Through each Chakra

 

Chakras-Prosperity-770x287

Where are your money blockages? You may not even realize this is happening or a blockage!

  1. Root chakra: You have just enough money for survival. Your basic needs are being met but you are not enjoying the pleasure that money brings. You have a lot of anxiety and stress about money. You are survival mode with money and have constant stress about not having enough or feel blindsided and anxious when a new expense comes in.
    • Fix: “The planet is abundant. I am abundant. I am safe and secure and abundance is all around me and flows easily through me.”
  2. Sacral chakra: You may have money to splurge a little and enjoy some pleasures or things for your own personal growth.  If money brings up a lot of emotions for you  or if you have trouble manifesting money, you could have a blockage here.
    • Fix: “I feel gratitude for the money that flows to me and from me. I bless it and let it flow in and out.¬†I use my creation energy to create money.”
  3. Power Center: You have to work really hard for your money. It takes pushing, long hours and extra effort to get what you need. You feel like you are chasing money and have a hard time getting paid, finding people for your courses, or you have to track down money owed to you.
    • Fix: “Money flows easily to me. I am a money magnet. I now receive all the money that is owed to me.”
  4. Heart Chakra: You feel like you don’t deserve money or like you have to earn it or work really hard for it. Its difficult for you to just receive or you beat yourself up for not having enough of it when you know you could’ve done better.
    • Fix: “I love money and money loves me. I am grateful and blessed and my money multiplies as soon as I touch it. I am joyful and abundant.”
  5. Throat Chakra: You may find it difficult to talk about money, your prices for your business, asking for the money owed to you or for a raise. Fear, shame or guilt comes up when you need to talk money.
    • Fix: “I am worth it. I am bold and courageous. It is safe and easy for me to ask for what I am worth.”
  6. Third Eye Chakra: Maybe you have a hard time seeing yourself as wealthy, rich or abundant and free. Its hard to imagine or visualize what that would be like for you.
    • Fix: “I see myself as wealthy and wise. I know I am abundant. I feel the freedom that this brings.”
  7. Crown Chakra: You feel money is evil or have negative beliefs against people with wealth or how much they charge and what things cost. You feel like you need approval when it comes to spending or making money and are not yet aligned with money and prosperity being your birthright.
    • Fix: “Money is my birthright. Prosperity is my birthright. I am allowed to create as much money as I’d like.”

There are several ways to clear these blockages in each chakra, but I included a mantra as that tends to be the easiest and quickest way to start the clearing and aligning yourself to the new beliefs. You may want to work with one chakra at a time if you find you have several blocks. For some people they have immediate results with new people, opportunities or ideas showing up in their lives within 24 hours, and others need more time with certain ideas or belief systems. Try it out and let me know what shows up for you!

For faster results try my new soundless mp3s! These carry the vibration of money or prosperity in its purest form. The more you allow yourself to relax, open and align to these vibrations, the more you become that vibration. When you become the vibration of the very thing you desire it flows to you effortlessly and in abundance.

You may notice for example when you’re frustrated, you keep attracting things and people that frustrate you. It seems endless and you wonder when it’ll ever end. Or when you are treated poorly, do you notice how most others treat you that way, if not in the beginning, then eventually they do? It all comes down to vibration. It can be hard to break out of a vibration especially when you are getting hit with the same things over and over.

That’s why I created these mp3s. Not only to bring you money when you are flowing and open, but to get out of any vibration you are stuck in and create a new frequency in your life that you may not have access to otherwise. Imagine if no matter what was going on you had prosperity flowing in the background. All you’d have to do is relax, open and feel/align/tune-into that frequency and things can change and the cycle will be broken. You will attract prosperous people and situations into your life. The more you let the new vibration in, the more you become it. Once you become it, well – who knows what you can create!

What is my Divine Purpose?

Have you ever wondered what your purpose is here on the planet? Do you feel like you are lacking direction and not sure what you are really here to do? Do you feel an emptiness or like something is missing from your life?

The answer is simple. However, simple can easily be overlooked.

When we think of purpose we tend to think of it in terms of what we are here to do. We like to say things like “I am a doctor, lawyer, student, chef, teacher, healer”, etc. Maybe you are in a career you don’t love and you don’t feel fulfilled by it. We then start to search for our purpose, what we are really here to do.

One of the secrets of this reality is that its not about what we do. It’s about what we ARE.

We can search all we want for our purpose. We can change careers and do something we love. I’ve seen a lot of people over the years leave jobs and become healers. It feels amazing to assist others on their journeys and help people heal and transform. It’s truly a joyful thing to be involved in. You get very busy healing people and that emptiness feels gone. The days are busy and thrilling and you have finally found your purpose. Or have you?

Eventually that empty feeling comes creeping back in.

What is it? Maybe its my relationship? Or we think, maybe I’m meant to do something else. The emptiness gets bigger and bigger screaming for us to pay attention. This can be a never-ending search our entire lives for fulfillment.

It’s never about what you do. It’s always about what you are.

Your search for purpose is your internal longing to find yourself. That’s all.

Once you have found yourself you can do anything and its fulfilling. You can sweep the floor or head a live conference. You may feel more passionate about one, but you never feel empty. You feel whole and fulfilled. You never question your purpose again.

How do you find yourself? Finding yourself is not as difficult as it sounds. You are there, inside that body, or in that general vicinity if you are more ungrounded. You’ve just disassociated and ended up in the mind or mental body . This is where you need to take action. You drop out of the mind and get into the body more deeply, you ground and connect with the true core of who you are. From the core of who you are, you will feel like things slow down. You may feel driven to take a certain direction. Your job is to follow that gut feeling. It may be short lived at first as you test out new things and find yourself. The thrill of life will start to come back. You will feel desire in your bones again. Life begins to get fun in a totally different way.

Not knowing your purpose is a sign of dissociation with your authentic self. A calling and longing for you to come home to yourself.

Once you reconnect with your core essence there will never be a lack or questioning of purpose. You have found you. Your purpose has always been to find you and live from that space doing anything you wish.

Blessings,

Vanessa

10 Signs Your Divine Feminine is Awakening

10 Signs Your Divine Feminine is Awakening

The universe has a way of introducing frustration in the places that need the most healing. It’s to get us to stop and look at what is going on and make some changes in our lives. Many people get frustrated though and don’t know what to do, what changes to introduce or what the universe is actually trying to get them to see.

I almost called this post¬†10 Signs Your Divine Feminine is Imbalanced, or Un-awakened. However, the truth is that if these things are happening to you, somewhere in your soul your feminine is awake and just calling out for healing and changes so she can can come back into balance with your masculine energy. She’s there and you are aware of her, even if its unconscious, but these are signs she is asking to be unblocked if any of these things are causing you frustration. This post is for those people that feel truly feminine in their nature. Not all females are truly meant to be feminine and men – masculine, but if you are one of the majority that is feminine in nature then this may resonate¬†for you.

  1. You have your life together. You have a good job, your own place, good friends, life is flowing to you, maybe abundantly, but one thing is missing. The soulmate or that passionate relationship you so truly desire.
  2. You’ve been burnt out from work before and fear getting burnt out again so it stops you from creating and moving forward with new projects and ideas.
  3. Your mind goes and goes and goes. It’s hard to make it stop and get restful deep sleep. You ground yourself but it doesn’t seem to help quiet the mind and get to that place where the thoughts cease. Quiet meditation could even feel like a chore.
  4. You constantly feel like you are “out-manning” men. It almost feels too easy. You may also find that they don’t “step-up” and do the manly things that should be obvious to them.
  5. You feel masculine on the inside. On the outside you could be very feminine looking, curvaceous or you do “girly” things, but inside you’ve never felt feminine.
  6. You tend to be the nurturer in your relationships with lovers, friends, family.¬†When we’re nurturing, we are actually in our masculine energy.¬†You may¬†be the giver and doer in relationships. and you¬†feel like you are doing a lot of the work to keep things flowing.
  7. This one addresses both extremes: Your finances are blocked and find that you are in a co-dependent relationship and need more from him whether it be attention or finaces, or you feel like you are the one in charge and doing everything financially or otherwise.
  8. You have a lot of shame or hatred of your body. It’s hard to look in the mirror and see the beauty standing before you. Your eyes go right to the places you want to change or feel you have imperfections.
  9. You isolate yourself or have a fear of being seen or heard or have some social anxiety.
  10. You have trouble opening your heart and seeing the love and beauty of life all around you. This can also manifest as an issue with receiving. You ask for what you want, you even ask for help, but you don’t always receive it or with the ease you’d like. The word surrender feels like defeat, not like surrendering into the divine flow and opening up to receiving and change.

These are all signs your feminine is waking up and wants to be seen, heard and expressed through you. Just the acknowledgement that this is indeed what is happening will start this process of healing, unblocking and further awakening for the feminine.

If you would like a private session to open up the divine feminine, please contact me at www.stairwaytohealing.com. I will also be doing groups and processes in the late spring to early summer to assist in the awakening of the divine feminine including Womb Blessings, Initiations, Carrier of the Sacred Flame, Healing Sexual Wounds, Heart Wounds and Intuition Wounds, and much more!

Today’s Thought

A Healing Mantra:

I love all the loved and unloved parts of myself.

I accept all the accepted and unaccepted parts of myself.

I approve of all unapproved and rejected parts of myself.

Speak this mantra throughout your day and watch your energy shift. The more you feel it as you say it, the better.

This is a simple step to begin self-healing, deepen it, and refocus your energy and thoughts on yourself. These statements are especially helpful if you find that you are outwardly focused on others, or find that you look for love, approval and acceptance outside of yourself. The more you can find it within, the easier your life will flow.

Love to you always,

Vanessa

Messages from the Other Dimension

In case you wanted to know what being me for 5 minutes is like.

As I lay there relaxed I could feel my eyes wanting to see further. I knew that if I just let myself go there, and see things inside out, then I would see again. I relaxed and dimmed my eyes a little, testing it out. If I would let myself see things as inverted I would see what I had been avoiding for all this time. It was in that moment that I felt and saw in my mind this fine line of real and unreal. I let myself see what was real, but now I could see the line and all that was beneath it. So I let go and held on to the calm place of certainty that this is a gift. I stared straight ahead and immediately saw 3 spirits of women where my fan was. They were dressed in gray tattered clothes and their cheeks plumped with delight as I looked at them. “Oh, she sees us!”, one exclaimed to the others. Another one looked directly at me and said “We’ve been with you since the 18th century.” Before I could ask them anything more, I was startled by the noise in the house and brought back abruptly to where I began. It became too difficult to communicate with them from this place, so I relaxed a bit. As I scanned the house I suddenly realized I was surrounded by spirits watching me as they encircled the outer edges of the room, yet the rest of the house was empty. “Have they always been here?”, I wondered. I knew I must be doing something of importance to generate this much attention. I turn back to my book about a writer that becomes a Vodou priest in order to create his book, but he must undergo days of darkness and being blindfolded as the spirits communicate with or possibly possess him. “We know its hard for you, you just want a normal life, but it has never been.” One of the women spoke gently. I looked at her puzzled. “We remember you. You don’t remember us.” They moved closer and one stroked my hair and their presence felt very nurturing in that moment. I appreciated their attentiveness and compassion. Just as I started to find comfort in their presence the metaphorical light bulb went off. Oh. “You guys want to go to the light? That’s why you’ve been here all this time?” Time to send them off I guess. “Yes, but when you have a moment.” I thought of how gracious they were even though they had waited since the 18th century and I laughed to myself. I blessed them and sent them off. I turned back to my book finishing the first chapter quickly. I felt something else tugging at me, wanting my attention. I put down the book and someone from the circle speaks. “You finished the entire chapter on darkness and you didn’t get scared.”, one being spoke. ¬†“What do you mean, why would I be scared? I’m fine”, I said abruptly. Suddenly there was a momentary flash of everything I would be afraid of if I was blindfolded in the dark in a cave for days. I laughed out loud from the image and the fact that he so eagerly and quickly shot back to me refuting what I said. I pondered the image for a moment. Strange animals touching me, bugs crawling on me, something eating me perhaps. It was in that moment I wondered if we are born fearing things or if we have learned to fear them. I quickly cleared all the energy that those things brought up until I could see the image and imagine myself being naturally calm. “Thank you.” I said. “You better write this down now.” he said.

Blissed Out of Polarity

I love listening to the pouring rain and watching it¬†pummel the exotic plants and trees. I am enchanted¬†as¬†the sky lights up and turns from bright orange to black as the night approaches. I watch as the stars struggle to radiate and shine behind these thick clouds. This is¬†bliss to me. I feel like I can breathe again, relax again, be me again. It’s when I am¬†the most at peace and my energy feels the clearest its been. Silence ensues within my body, and even the neighborhood goes quiet. The irony of the intense thunder outside creates the most intense stillness inside.

We are always coming into balance one way or another. This is the natural cycle of life. Did you ever notice how when there is chaos outside you get very still within yourself? Whether you are thinking of a plan of action, go into survival mode or even freeze up in fear, stillness becomes you. When you have stillness or joy within ever notice how someone comes along to knock you of alignment with the divine, or seems to fight the mood you are in? We seem to always be polarized and attracting the opposite to create that balance of Oneness that we truly live in. The more we fight it, the more it fights back. What we resist, persists. Its the same as when we go on a 5 day yoga retreat, or attend a 3 day energy workshop. We leave feeling great, open and expanded, then within days we can feel tight and contracted, and even old emotions can rise up to the surface.

When our vibration goes up and we finally feel amazing and on top of the world we tend to never want to come back down, so we naturally or even instinctually push¬†out those other emotions, energies and frequencies. We feel they are bad or we label them under the NO WAY category. I¬†know I do. When I feel great I feel like there is no way I’m coming back down. However, there is no such thing as exclusion in a world of energy when all is One¬†and needs negative and positive to operate. So what you decide you don’t want, comes fighting back to its rightful place as much as you fight to push it way. It’s like fighting your reversed mirror image. You attract people who feel threatened by your expansion or new found joy. They fight it because they feel excluded from your life. So how do we escape polarity but enjoy our bliss?

Accept all energies. Allow it to flow. Imagine the thing you want the most to happen. Imagine how you would feel if it already happened. If there’s a smile on your face that’s a good sign. If you feel light in your heart and an opening there, this is what acceptance feels like. Allow yourself to feel that and watch how much easier it is to stay blissful.

Are you loving from your heart or your head?

Are you loving from your heart or your head?

This is a strange phenomena I’ve come across lately. Being love vs. doing loving actions based on what we think the idea of love is. The latter is way too common. You could be a head lover if¬†you’ve found yourself saying “I’ve been very loving. I do all the right things. I’m a good person. Why can’t I get what I want? I feel forgotten, overlooked, unappreciated.” We could even add “I do so much for people and what do I get in return?!”. Or, “I’ve put so much good out in the world, what’s going on?!” If you resonate with any of that, there’s a big chance you are a head lover. Some other signs of this are you not attracting people you like and you seem to attract the ones you don’t like quite easily. Or maybe you do like them, but they don’t stick around, or you find out their feelings aren’t mutual after they seemed to be interested at first.

So if you’re a head lover, read on dear friend. We welcome you. You are not alone.

I know I’m dropping a bomb here when I say this, but here goes…

You are not actually loving.

Well now that that’s out of the way, let me say, you are a loving person. You are just not loving – as in the verb/action form of it. You are being the adjective. You’ve moved all that wondrous, amazing yumminess up to your head, which does nothing for you there. It just makes you seem loving. Its how people might describe you, with the adjective loving. The truth here is that you are a tremendously emotional or sensitive-to-feelings type of person, which is why you thought its much safer to pack up and move into the headspace. Perhaps your heart got hurt and you didn’t have to the tools to heal it, so you go through loving actions (notice the descriptor of love here) but can’t seem to attract your real desires¬†in your life in some area because the actual action of loving (verb usage here), which is not a mental state, but an actual embodied state,¬†isn’t¬†happening.

So go to your heart. What’s there? Do you feel anything? Is it heavy? Is it fine?

Now take your awareness from your beautiful and genius mind, which I’m sure is so with this group¬†since we’ve spent so much time there, and put that awareness inside your heart. Breathe in and out slowly a few times. What’s there? Muck and yuck? Puppies and rainbows? I’m not here to judge. When I went to my heart it was full of grief, layers and layers worth.

The heart has a gigantic magnetic field. This is what actually manifests our life. As within so without. So this is why no matter how many times you tell yourself you are going to get that job, that extra money, or a loving mate to show up, it doesn’t happen. You can think positive thoughts day and night, even have moments of feeling that confidence, but in the end it is the state of your heart that creates your outside world. Only when your heart is open and clearer, then those positive thoughts and moments of strong feelings of confidence flow through and can help to manifest what you desire.

Essentially, it would be in your best interest if everything came from love, and if its not possible in that moment, it could be forgiveness. Anything else is considered a withholding of love. The only person we can actually withhold love from is ourselves. Did you ever withhold love from someone because you were upset? Perhaps your mind felt self-satisfied, but did you notice your feelings were unbalanced in some way, maybe even a little empty?

The truth is this. You are LOVE. Love is just another word for your infinite source energy, or your spirit, or your creator, or the universe. So either you are coming from YOU Рyour authentic self Рlove, or you are cutting off from yourself, source, and spirit.

Whoa right!? When you come from love Рyouyou easily magnetize your deepest desires and things that are perfect for you without even asking.

When you have trouble coming from love, forgiveness is a wise choice. It opens up the heart and lets things flow and clears the karma of lifetimes gone by. Its all too easy to go back to the head and think we are open-hearted because we are being nice and even caring. When we come from the heart there is so much less work because we are being it and there is less doing or saving of anyone else.

One way to check this is to stop and feel. Are there endless thoughts in your mind? Do you get bored easily and need outside stimulation more often than not? You’re probably in the head.

Are you aware of your feelings (even if they are ones you consider negative) and is your mind mostly quiet? Do you do and say things that feel in alignment with you. Then you are most likely in the heart.

There’s a reason you’ve been in the head. We know its difficult, and it hurts to revisit what’s trapped there in the heart, but letting go and forgiveness will give you all that you seek.

Love & Blessings,

Having Faith. When you know, you just know.

People often ask me about faith. It usually doesn’t come as a direct question, since most people have a sense of faith or already have touched upon it, or even ridden its waves of divinity. It tends to come as “Why should i have faith? I’ve trusted in the universe before and nothing happened.” or “Well, I’ll have faith, we’ll see..” and they watch and wait for the universe to either fulfill their dream or pull the rug out from under as usual. However, that’s not actually faith in the divine. That’s faith in mistrust of the universe, or faith in darkness, negativity, or the universe conspiring against you. Faith is not a we’ll-see attitude, nor does it have room for the slightest doubt, not even a drop. The easiest way for me to talk about faith is through a story.

In 2005 I was growing very tired of my job. I mean I loved it, I felt I was good at it, there were nice people, there was room to grow, there was support, there was money and great vacations. I mean, lots of good stuff here. However, I knew once I started growing tired that it would be time to move on. I always knew I would do something else, and that work was temporary, but never knew what or when a new beginning would strike.

I had no clue what else I could be good at besides what I went to college to do. I also knew I was blessed to have such a great job in software engineering. However, there was always this knowing that it wasn’t for me. That something totally different and unique would be my calling. After 7 years in the field I started to get this inkling it was time to go. I grew tired of going in to work, but mostly it felt like I lost my passion for it. As I paid attention to this feeling, it grew louder and louder. I felt like an entire life change was ahead, but I still didn’t know what. Finally I felt like I needed to make a first move. So I gave my notice that I was leaving.

Well, it was an interesting reaction from people when I explained I didn’t know what I was leaving a great job for. Yet, I was unmoved. It didn’t bother me at all whatever they might have thought or said among themselves. I figured they thought I was crazy, and I am probably am. Yet I stood firm. As I drove home a little bit of panic set in, as I drove to the house I had a mortgage on. Oh yes, bills. What would happen to me? Yet, I still couldn’t even go into a full-fledged panic or freak out. I was unusually calm for once in my life. When I arrived home that night I said, “God, please show me what career I am to do, what job I am to do, or what I am to do next. PLEASE!”. I left it at that.

I went to work the next day and the analytical brain was starting to kick in, like – “Vanessa, you better start to think about what it is you want to do already. Stop wasting time!” I made it through the day and I knew no matter what thoughts arose I was doing the right thing. It felt like a cross between intuition and trust that I would make it. I didn’t know at the time I was riding on full-fledged faith here. I just knew that I needed to trust this. I’m not the most decisive person (which frustrates the heck out of my friends lol sorry!), so when I know something, I know that I know that I know!

I arrived home and when I opened the mailbox there was one piece of mail. It was a postcard. It said “Become a healer! Learn Qi Gong and heal yourself and others!”. And there you have it. I saw that and without a doubt I just knew that was the next thing. I knew I was born to be a healer, I just never knew it could be a job. It was scary to think about since back then it was the most difficult field to do well in, but there was no doubt in mind this is what God wanted me to do. So this is where I started. I learned everything I could in workshops, classes, books, home courses and schools – that’s how much passion I had. That was also another sign that this was for me. God speaks to us in feelings, and in that moment my faith was to just pay attention and listen and follow the trail home.

I tell that story when people ask me about faith because its not about having faith, its about having knowing. Just knowing you are taken care of. Knowing the universe is conspiring to please you. Knowing everything is happening for your good. If we have any doubts at all, that’s not true knowing. There is no room for doubt in faith. There is no space for prove-it-to-me, or disbelief. This also wasn’t blind faith, although it may appear that way on the surface. I always knew there was more. I could feel it. When you know you just know. I tell clients that if there is something you need to have faith about and have trouble getting there, ask yourself, what do you know about this. Forget the word faith, and tune into what you know beyond a shadow of a doubt. Tune into your feelings. Go from there.

Kisses,

11/23 A NEW You

Today is the birth of New You. Did you spend your day yesterday feeling & seeing what you would like to create? I spent it mostly in meditation and silence, and watched as the physical and the spiritual realms collided. I could see where I was refusing to let my life collide. I’ve been being the 11, but not the 22. The 11 is the divinity, the seer, the spiritual. The 22 is the perfect blend of the divinity and physical living as one. The fear was that if the divinity collided, it would not be divine anymore.

Its been a while since I sat and watched and did nothing. I’m always doing something lately, or too tired from doing that particular something and forced to rest – which is still making time to do something from that perspective.

My lesson yesterday was that doing nothing is equally as generative and important as doing something. Just like how one’s muscles rebuild on that day off from working out. We all know this, but what I saw was that I always needed a reason to rest. When I feel good I never rest.¬†

Rest always comes from a reason. Usually from feeling not so good.

Today I see the value of total rest. No thinking, no planning, no clearing, no tiresome movements, just watching the universe do its thing and speak to me. Not easy, yet totally liberating. Perhaps this is how the divine lives equally among the physical.

Loving you,

V
