Creating the Foundations for Living in a Higher Dimensional World

rael conkles spotAnyone else feel like they are being transformed on all levels?  If so, you aren’t alone! Our planet is in the process of undergoing an evolutionary process and as we are part of this planet, we are evolving too. What this means is that we are changing our energetic, mental, emotional, spiritual and physical make up so that we can function and work with higher frequency energies.  These energies give us the opportunity to grow into our highest potential and to live in love rather than be motivated by survival fears.

This journey from the familiar survival-based world we have known into the higher dimensional world we are creating isn’t always easy.  Many of us are either clinging to the familiar or finding that we no longer fit anywhere in our world.  While the transition we are going through is necessary, there are things we can do to make the process easier.

This month, my intern (see below to learn more about Ryan) and I are offering some new types of sessions to support you through the process.  Sessions are offered on the conference call line (and can be recorded) and are typically about 45 minutes long.  Details are below:


Moving from Karmic Relationships to Energy Partnerships: Most of the relationships we have had through our lives have existed as a result of karmic story lines.  The people in our world have provided opportunities to work through our fears, wounds, and insecurities.  Now, we have the option to end the karmic cycle, stop acting out of old relationship patterns, and to move into new relationships (with the same people and/or new people) who are drawn to us because they match our energy, not because of wounding.  This session will help you clear the karmic story lines, clean up any energetic cords or residual effects from your energy system, and allow these relationships to evolve to a new place of wholeness.

Setting up Your Upgraded Energy System– For this session, we will take a look at your energy system and determine what needs to be rewoven or created in your energy set up for the most optimal functioning in the new energy frequencies.  This will help you stay grounded and anchored with Mother Earth, keep you connected to the Divine and your Spiritual Support Team, and help you stay comfortable even if those around you are on a different energetic channel right now.

Personal Energy Grids:  Using crystals and other energetic tools, a personal energy grid will be created and activated for you.  A crystal will be programmed for you to work with, so when you activate the crystal you will have access to all the benefits the full grid offers.  This tool offers a way to amplify your intentions to reach your goals, to connect more easily to your Spirit Guides and Angels with clearer and fuller communications, to connect with your higher self and the wisdom available from this source, and to stay anchored in your optimal energetic frequency and set up.  You will receive a photo of the original grid, a fully activated and programmed crystal, and a 30 minute session to help you learn how to use your grid most effectively.

Baby Steps

Butterfly and FlowerDo you find yourself slipping into feelings of confusion or lack of confidence lately?  If so, you are not alone.  As we go through the process of adjusting from being quite competent (for the most part) at functioning as caterpillars, to being back at the newbie stage as recently evolved butterflies, it can feel a little disorienting.  One of my soul friends and colleagues – Ed Snyder (Salus North) – shared this quote with me from Louise Hay and I thought I’d share it with all of you…

“When a little child is learning to walk or talk, we encourage him and praise him for every tiny improvement he makes. The child beams and eagerly tries to do better. Is this the way you encourage yourself when you are learning something new? Or do you make it harder to learn because you tell yourself that you are stupid or clumsy or a ‘failure’?”

I have been repeatedly getting the intuitive message to come at life from the point of view of the enlightened child.  By seeing the world with fresh, innocent eyes that see the world as a safe and magical place, we are able to go through this new learning phase with delight instead of fear and struggle.  What we belief is what we create, which means the world then becomes safe and magical for us.  So how do we start believing this?

I asked for some guidance on the best way to navigate this experience and opened to a message from my new book, Mother Earth Musings: Nature-Inspired Guidance for Your Day Here is what was shared…

Morning Message Twenty- Six


I see a red squirrel and a groundhog in a yard.  The red squirrel is on the fence and the groundhog is digging a hole.  Each is doing their own thing with no concern for each other.


Red makes me think of the first chakra and the foundations we rest on.  Squirrels are also gatherers.  They are always setting things aside to provide for their future.  The ground-hog is creating a burrow.  This makes me think of having a safe haven or place to rest in.


Today, I will rediscover my inner home.  I will fill it with the love and the nourishment I need to have with me always.  I will rest within and be at peace.

I pray it is so and so it is…

How perfect that a message about the first chakra was offered! I do feel we are on the ground floor, building the new launching pad for our life with wings.  As we build it, this message reminds me to remember that our inner home is eternal and unchanging.  Resting in that truth allows us to be more comfortable while our foundations get put in.

Another message from the vision is to keep focused on what is in front of us to do and to not worry what others around us are choosing.   What we create for ourselves needs to be in alignment for who we are.  It wouldn’t be appropriate for the ground-hog to be burying acorns or building a nest in a tree.  This is a reminder not to worry if you seem to be doing things differently than others who share your environment.  Just keep listening to your own heart, praising yourself for each tentative step you take, and trusting that soon you will be flying!

Sending you much love!

Animal Wisdom For Your Day! (Whatever Day You Come Upon It!)

Tricolored Heron

I felt called to pull one of the Native American Medicine Cards for us all (Jamie Sams and David Carson) and the card that fell out is Blue Heron.

Here is the message…

Self-Reflection:  Heron medicine is the power of knowing the self by discovering its gifts and facing its challenges. It is the ability to accept all feelings and opinions without denying any emotion or thought.  Heron flies over those who are unaware of who they are and where they belong in the world. Gently dropping a blue feather to them, Heron asks that they follow their intuition and begin the empowering journey of self-realization.”  

And another part of the message… “The magnificence of your human spirit lies waiting for the joy of discovery, if you are courageous enough to follow the Water bird throughout the journey.  Heron reminds you that every traveler on life’s journey is a messenger, and that every destination is the beginning of a new life cycle on the Medicine Wheel.”

I love the message Blue Heron brings!  It is so fitting for this period we are in with our evolution!  My Spirit Guides keep telling me we are in the process of letting go of the old “stories” of who we are, so that we can release the limitations they impose on the expressions of our True Nature. An exciting time for sure, though I know it can also feel very confusing! If you feel like you could use some quick intuitive guidance, I’ve added a new 15 minute empowerment reading option.

Sending much love to you all!






Ascension Symptoms Relief Call – Thursday 2/26

Zippy Sleeping

Animals and children are feeling the effects too! Here is my puppy Zippy catching up on some sleep.

Anyone else feeling exhausted from all these energetic shifts and changes?  I knew we were going to be processing some big stuff with the ascension experience, but I guess I was hoping it would be a little easier on the physical side of things!

This morning (which actually felt like the middle of the night since it was 3 AM!), my Spiritual Support Team walked me through a process to help cleanse my system and bring in supportive energy to restore some balance.  It really brought some relief, so I feel called to share the technique with all of you!  Details are below if this resonates…

Morning Musings – Guidance for Your Day (Whatever day you come upon it!)

I asked for guidance this morning and thought I’d share what came through.  I hope you find it helpful!

Butterfly on pink flower

The Vision…

I see a butterfly pinned to a corkboard.  The butterfly begins to twitch and then its wings open, pushing out the pins.  It lifts off into a beautiful blue sky.


In Ted Andrew’s Animal Speak Pocket Guide, he says of butterflies, “New Birth:  New love and joy are coming.  Transformation is inevitable but will be easier than expected.  Embrace the new beginnings.”  The fact that the butterfly starts out pinned to a corkboard as if it is part of a science project is interesting to me.  What does it mean that my joy and transformation is something pinned up to be studied?  The fact that the butterfly comes to life suggests that while I have done a lot of work learning about how to live in love, perhaps I am now ready to actually begin living it.


Today, I will remember that I am already evolved into a creature able to live from love. I will allow myself to fully embrace this new reality and open my arms to bright skies and new horizons!  As Louise Hay says on the I Can Do It calendar for this date, “Today, I trust that my future is in good hands.” Remembering this allows me to fully be present in the joy of today.

I pray it is so, and so it is!

Have a beautiful day filled with blue skies and unbounded happiness!



Easter and the Hero’s Journey

Thirteen years ago on Easter I spent the whole day in the woods. The night before, I had found myself facing the implosion of my marriage and the life I’d lived to that point. In shock and anxious, I did what I have done all my life, I went home to Mother Earth.

That Easter Day is one I will never forget for as long as I live. With a dear friend, I spent the day reconnecting to the Earth, to God, and to myself. I took my shoes off and pushed my bare toes into the cool mud. I sat on the ground and stared at the sky. I hugged trees, I cried, and I laughed. I found that as long as I was walking deeper into the woods, I felt a great joy welling up in me, but when I turned to go home it was as if someone had laid a terrible weight on my heart. During that fateful walk on Easter Day, I said I wanted God to be more central in my life. Within three months, I was no longer married and no longer a part of the vast family that had been my whole world for thirteen years. Somewhere through that process, God had given me what I asked for, though certainly not in the form I expected. God had become the very center of my existence.

I am a huge fan of Joseph Campbell who taught about the power of myth and the hero’s journey. During that time, I came to realize I was on such a journey, a journey to discover myself. In so many ways, the experience was truly magical – filled with unexpected helpers, soul friends, God winks, and the discovery of the Spirit World. It was also filled with terrible grief, loss, anxiety, and fear. I spent almost three years battling anxiety. I went from almost all of my close friends and family being gone to discovering a whole community of beautiful souls to love. I met my current husband who has been the perfect partner for me in countless ways. Most important of all, I found myself.

So now, in the year that I am 44 years old (the other number besides 13 which has been very significant in my life), I am ready to begin a new journey. It is time for another quest, though this time the quest isn’t to discover who I am, This time, I am on a quest to experience my life from a place of harmony with all that I am. I believe the same is true for you. Whatever the path has been that has led you to this moment, it has made you who you are. Take a moment today to honor this and to send love to the self of each moment of the journey. Acknowledge the beauty and the pain of the path you have followed. Let yourself accept it all and in doing so, accept and love the YOU which has been born from the experience.

Let the Age of Light begin within each and every one of us today, as we embody the light of the Divine within, reflected through all the many facets of who we are…

Wishing you love and many blessings today and always!
Happy Easter!



Receiving Grace during Ascension

Are you feeling all the vibrational shifting going on? I know I am! Energetically, emotionally, and physically, it can be a pretty uncomfortable experience. Since I know I’m not alone in this (I’ve been hearing the same story from so many others), I thought we could all use some additional suggestions on receiving grace during this transformation. After all, I firmly believe that for every challenge there is a solution. I’m ready to receive grace with this instead of suffering. How about you?

I asked for some Divine guidance on this topic. Turtles seem to be the theme…all different sizes and types. Let’s take a look at what turtles represent metaphorically…

From Native American Medicine Cards by Jamie Sams and David Carson:

“In Native American teachings, Turtle is the oldest symbol for planet Earth. It is the personification of goddess energy, and the eternal Mother from which our lives evolve. We are born of the womb of Earth, and to her soil our bodies will return. In honoring the Earth, we are asked by Turtle to be mindful of the cycle of give and take, to give back to the Mother as she has given to us. Turtle has a shell which is similar to the protection of the Earth has employed for centuries as her body has been defiled. Mother Earth’s protection has come in the form of Earth changes, new plant growth, the creation of new land masses by volcanoes, and climate alterations. Like Turtle, you also have shields that protect you from hurt, envy, jealousy, and the unconsciousness of others. Turtle teaches you, through its habit patterns, how to use protection. If you are bothered by the actions or words of others, it is time to go inside yourself and honor your feelings. If you are attacked, it is time to give a warning snap.”

Okay, so let’s get into the practical application of this. I feel very strongly the “protection” described above would help tremendously with the energetic and emotional challenges of our time. So how do we activate this protection beyond honoring our feelings and speaking up when we need to?

I’m hearing we need to DEMAND it. Insist that we continuously have the protection we need to stay in a state of joy and well-being while we are on Earth. This isn’t about asking. It is about insisting that we will no longer tolerate being immersed in lower vibrating energies…insisting that we WILL be comfortable at all times and in all situations WITHOUT EXCEPTION. Our vibration needs to be high no matter what is going on around us.

This month, a few of the Sensitive Person Mentoring Clubs will be reaching the third chakra portion of the program. I am realizing how fitting this is with this topic. The Universe is on our side, but sometimes our fear keeps us from the good that the Universe wants for us. That’s why this has to be something that you commit to at a deep and guttural level. Feel it in your third chakra when you make it clear that you will no longer tolerate anything less than energetic comfort. We need to leave no room for wavering on this. No exceptions, means no exceptions.

When I first started doing readings for people, I had a session with a young man who was suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome, severe anxiety, and depression. I started the session and became so overwhelmed by what he was feeling that I was barely able to complete my job. I remember walking afterwards and having a very frank conversation with God. I made it clear and I meant it….this wasn’t just words…that I would no longer do this work if I could not do it with comfort and safety. I asked for a “spiritual epidural” to allow me to know what I needed to while working with someone without experiencing it as if it were my own. It worked. Why? Because I absolutely would accept nothing less.

I realized while writing this that it was time to make the same demand for my life outside of the coaching. What used to be tolerable is no longer. I did this earlier in the week, and it worked! Here’s a simple prayer you can use to make this change in your own life.

Begin with breathing deeply and slowly. Imagine yourself somewhere peaceful. Let yourself relax until you feel safe and centered. Ask for your Divine support team to be with you. Ask them to be present as you clearly set forth your intentions for yourself. Now, spend a moment really feeling the strength of your will. Feel your commitment to your own well-being and your intolerance for anything less than peace within. Feel the protective instinct that you have for your love ones rise forth for yourself. KNOW that you will protect and love yourself no matter what. Next, demand the protection you need. Commit yourself, knowing that if the protection cannot be provided in the situation you are in, that you will leave that situation. There can be no compromise. Either you are safe, comfortable, and able to function or you will remove yourself from it. Ask that this commitment be sealed in the Universe and that Spirit make it so.

Give it a try! Hang in there!
