Mermaid Empathy

     Mermaids are elemental water beings in the astral realm. Rarely, they incarnate as a human woman with a mermaid’s aura of water: nurturing, compassionate, and feminine. There is no separation between them and every molecule of water on Gaia. Mermaids can instantly attune their energy to every ocean, wave, ripple, and raindrop. They have but one purpose, to love. Mermaids are aware of their intimate connection to nature. The myriad waters that caress the entire planet are an innate part of their being and they cannot be separate from it. Mermaids heal others with water energy. Their nature is to love freely and unconditionally.

From William Mistele,

       “A mermaid woman’s astral body, then, is analogous to water in nature. She knows how to let go. She feels pure. She has a primordial innocence. She freely gives of herself. She feels that life involves a continual exchange of energy with others. And her connection to water produces highly developed feelings of peace, happiness, contentment, vivaciousness, empathy, and the desire to heal and benefit others. A human mermaid woman can flow her aura through someone she is near to or cares about. A hard-core mermaid woman can do this with anyone anywhere on earth. The other person does not have to be physically present for her to flow her energy through the other.”

     Mermaids feel the feelings of others and dream their dreams. They can sense another’s presence, their wishes and desires, and also, their greatest potential. Mermaids do not live in linear time, so can sense the past, present and future. Like water, mermaids adapt effortlessly to their environment. People feel comforted and safe in their presence because mermaids understand their true nature, beyond social constructions and ego. Mermaids understand that nothing is outside of them, but all is unified in the love that pervades all existence. She knows she is nature, and radiates wisdom, peace, compassion, and innocence.

     Her empathy surpasses the understanding of humans. She feels that she must conceal her true nature just to survive in society. Mermaids do not have human egos. She unconditionally loves and accepts others, with an intimate understanding of the divine nature of reality. Although mermaids possess empathy that allows them to deeply connect with others at a soul level, they remain detached in relationships. They understand that most people do not access the transformative power of love, but rather, seek to control or possess in matters of the heart. Mermaids remain lovingly unattached to people and experiences, flowing effortlessly and gracefully on her journey.

     During meditation, we can connect to the mermaid realm by coming into a deep state of peace, beyond thought. Call in Archangel Michael to shield you with his angelic light. Mermaids communicate through feeling and scan one’s energetic field to see if it is in vibrational resonance to the water realm. If you feel called to work with the mermaid realm, raise your vibration: your thoughts, feelings, and intentions. The angels will assist you whenever you call upon them. As your daily practice, meditate on the waters of Gaia, every ocean, lake, stream, river, waterfall, and dewdrop. Visualize that you can feel every aspect of water. Attune to the mermaid realm through pure intention, affirming that Gaia is restored to her optimal vibrational frequency, including all the waters, plants, animals, and people.

Once we balance the polarity of these energies, we are centered in our hearts yet connected to the collective consciousness of humanity at the same time.

Dream Time Healing

“At the center of your being
you have the answer;
you know who you are
and you know what you want.”
- Lao Tzu

Some of our greatest ideas and realizations come from our dreams. During a peaceful night’s sleep, the body is repairing itself on a cellular level and integrating the events of the day. In astrology, the planet Neptune is all about our dreams and the ocean of the unconscious mind. By bringing more awareness to our dream life, we begin to activate our own healing process and inner knowing. We receive intuitive guidance and soul messages through our dreams as well.

To dream of water represents your emotions. Is the water turbulent, full of movement, rhythmic or serene? Your conscious awareness directed toward your dreams will give you insight into your soul which often communicates in subtle messages, symbols, and archetypes.

As empathic healers and Earth Angels, it is integral to our overall well-being and self-care to make sure we are getting quality, restful sleep that is nourishing and restorative. Otherwise we feel like something is off, and we are not operating at our fullest, high-vibrational capacity.

To make sure you are getting the most rejuvenating sleep possible, limit or eliminate substances like caffeine, sugar, alcohol and drugs which can bring our sensitive systems out of balance. Overeating can also disrupt sleep because the body is using more energy during digestion which could be better conserved during rest. It’s all about being in harmony with our body’s natural rhythms, cycles and needs. Eating mindfully throughout the day will ensure that your body is receiving the nutrients it needs. It’s best not to eat a several hours before bed. A calming cup of herbal tea like chamomile or honey lavender may become your favorite bedtime ritual, or the perfect contemplation time for your morning meditation!

Other ideas to get the most restful sleep are to make your bedroom as dark as possible, which assists your body’s natural production of melatonin, the hormone that drifts your body to sleep and regulates your circadian rhythms. Create a crystal grid near your pillow with Amethyst and quartz to assist your dream time healing. Give yourself enough time to wind-down after your busy day, and turn off your electronic devices ideally an hour or two before bed. Use an aromatherapy diffuser with some calming essential oil like rose, lavender, or jasmine. I also like to place a drop or two of essential oil on my wrists before I drift off to sleep. Another lovely practice to activate your dream time healing is to set the conscious intention, before falling asleep, to remember your dreams. Ask to be aware of when you are dreaming! Your guides and angels can assist your intention to activate your dream space where you can play in the astral realm and ask for guidance in your daily life.

Attracting Abundance

What does it mean to live in a state of abundance? Hint: it’s not about how much money you have.  When we are in the flow of life, we realize that the Universe’s natural state is truly one of abundance, despite what economics, politics, and society may tell us. Just walk outside and become aware of the multitude of flowers, blades of grass, butterflies, insects, forest creatures, and elemental beings. Even if you like in an urban jungle, find a park or take a stroll through a garden. You see the unique spark of divine light in all things, each expressing its own unique vibration. Each with the desire to express itself through form in order to merge back into the Source of all things. When we are guided by nature as our teacher,  we realize that abundance is a state of mind, a way of being,  our natural state.

To me abundance is about living gracefully, in tune with the Universal rhythm and order of all things. It’s about taking only what we truly need and giving away the rest. As we give to others, we also give to ourselves.  The Universe is truly conspiring on our behalf. It’s on our team, nothing is against us or out to get us. It is all here as our guide and teacher. This life is like a magnificent play in which we authored the plot, characters, experiences and lessons! At any time, we can shift it through our conscious intention.

In order to invite more abundance into our lives, we must first let go off the deeply entrenched feelings or beliefs that literally block us from receiving the earth’s beautiful gifts. Cultural conditioning, for example, sends messages that there is never enough, that we must fight and compete for resources. I argue that the natural order of things is not of competition, but of sharing, compassion, and cooperation. That is a paradigm shift, a conscious choice to adopt a more loving and empowering thought! We are meant to live as reflections of Divine Source, to bring our unique vision of heaven here on earth, creating a more harmonious world.

So ask yourself, what does wealth and abundance mean to you? Is money simply a means to live more fully in the light, and help others along the way? It’s all about making tiny, consistent shifts from disempowering to empowering ideas, from actions that are out of alignment with our truth to actions that ARE in alignment our truth. How can you more fully embrace your natural state of abundance, creativity, playfulness and self-expression? The cosmic energies are continuously assisting us in manifesting these energies here now. It is a free-will planet, so the choice is yours, move toward expansion or stay stuck?

 

Return to the Breath

The mind is a powerful tool, one that is best harnessed toward one-pointed focus. Time and again, it so often focuses on things outside of our control, projecting judgments on the past and fear of what is yet to come. In the tides of the Universe, gain and loss, pleasure and pain, we can only control our state of awareness, how much presence we can bring to every moment. When the mind is focused on fear and worry, it takes us out the present and the heart space, making it difficult to hear the gentle whisper of our intuition.

Taking deep yogic breaths brings us back to the present, where we live from the heart. We may be breathing shallowly from the top of the chest,  causing the body to hold tension. The energy needs to flow freely, and we can facilitate this process by bringing our focus to the breath.

Practice bringing conscious awareness to the breath by exhaling, emptying the lungs completely as the navel moves gently in and up toward the spine, and inhaling fully, expanding the belly and diaphragm. Take the deepest breath you’ve taken all day, fully filling the lungs from the stomach up to the top of the chest. Release any built up tension with an audible sigh through the mouth. Continue the deep inhale and exhale through the nose, and notice the shifts you feel within a minute. Even a few cycles of this conscious breathing can create a wave of peace through your entire being.

The breath is truly the vehicle of the divine. It is how we detoxify, bring oxygen to the body, and take in prana, pure source energy and light. When the mind detours into anxiety and worry, return to the breath, and you will witness the pure awareness that is love.

Radiance

As part of our commitment to uplifting others and the environment, Earth Angels are guided to make changes that bring harmony to our inner and outer worlds. This includes not only what we eat, but also what products we choose to use for personal care and beauty. One of my missions is to choose natural and organic whenever possible, in order to limit the negative impact my choices have on the environment and my physical body. This also coincides with a shift to a more minimal way of living, but one that is nonetheless filled with beauty and abundance. By acknowledging that our choices effect the greater whole, and taking responsibility for even the smallest choices, we are empowered to make conscious decisions, creating a more harmonious existence.

Earth Angels are super sensitive to chemicals and we are truly being guided to detox from unhealthy, harmful products. For example, I’ve been guided to change my self-care routine to be in alignment with my heart by not using toxic chemical-laden perfumes, lotions, and sunscreen. Instead I opt for pure essential oils, coconut oil, and mineral sunscreen. Hemp oil is another amazing skin moisturizer that can be mixed with a few drops of your favorite essential oil.  Our body naturally produces Vitamin D through natural sunlight, which is vital to feeling happy. Another loving shift is to use fluoride-free toothpaste, as fluoride is a neurotoxin that is also present in our drinking water. It is best to avoid your exposure to this by changing to a natural toothpaste like Jasons or Desert Essence.

Harsh chemical lathering agents in shampoo can be replaced with baking soda and apple cider vinegar for the hair, and coconut oil & honey as a conditioner. Baking soda, fine sugar, and sea salt also work wonderfully as body scrubs. Lush makes natural soaps that do not contain preservatives. Dr. Bronner’s castile soap is another great option. Aluminium in anti-antiperspirants is also a concern, as it is the body’s natural process to sweat. I suggest trying a natural deodorant made from mineral salt. It lasts a long time, works well, and does not contain aluminum.

The angels are guiding us to shift, so tune in with your heart and hear their gentle messages. I recommend checking out the Skin Deep Cosmetics Database to see what chemicals are in your daily products and shift to a healthier option that has less of a negative environmental impact. The Free People blog has many natural beauty DIYs including face masks, lotions, deodorant, and hair care. Also check out this article, The Key to Going Natural. These small, gradual changes lead to great energetic shifts as we all move into alignment with our soul’s yearning to be one with Universal will.

Bless.

Jupiter in Leo

Processed with VSCOcam with n2 preset

On July 17 Jupiter, the benefic planet of good luck, wisdom, and philosophy moves into the fiery sign of Leo, urging us to connect with the heart and shine our light. Leo is compassionate, generous, and creative, and adores to be in the spotlight. Jupiter is the teacher and guru, and his influence expands whatever it touches. In the sign of Leo, we are gently encouraged to connect with our inner child and foster our creativity, self-care, and self-expression. Leo loves to laugh, dance, play, and create. Shine your heart’s light in all that you do, and the Universe will bless you with unexpected gifts and opportunities, especially while assisting others on their path.

When you share your authentic self, in all your vulnerability, power, compassion, and love, you inspire so many others. You may not even realize it, but trust that what is best for you is also best for everyone else. Because we live in a fractal universe, the microcosm is but a reflection of the whole. And so when you are happy and living in the highest vibration of your truth, that creates harmonic patterns within the entire Universe.

The Leo energy is warm sunshine and heart-centered creativity and self-expression. Jupiter in Leo is all about having fun, laughing, playing, and connecting to our beautiful inner child. With this in mind, know that when you focus on what makes you happy, you effectively ground in more light and inspire many, many others, simply by the elevated vibration of your being. We are all channeling Source, and an aspect of that is our soul’s unique expression!

Full Moon in Sagittarius

The Full Moon is a time of heightened energy where we can ride the high tides of the ethers and direct our intention toward that which we want to create. This is a powerful time to contemplate your dreams and clearly, consciously decide what you want to bring into this world. Collectively, we are grounding in this new paradigm of oneness and harmony. What we direct our thoughts and energy toward should be closely considered at this time. With greater awakening affords greater responsibility, and therefore, the focus on our intentions must be unwavering.

Take some deep breaths, bringing yourself back again and again to the present. Remember the breath is the vehicle of spirit, and as you practice conscious breathing, you are able to hold more and more light within. Yes, you are here to be the lighthouse for others! As you stand in your peace, authenticity, and grace, you unknowingly inspire and awaken so many others. Never doubt the power of your full presence, your compassion, your smile, laughter and happiness.

Many Blessings on your path.

Essential Practices for Earth Angels and Empaths

Those who identify as healers, empaths, and Earth Angels are extremely sensitive to energy. On a daily basis, some essential practices can help us find harmony even when the external environment sways our mood. If you feel drained, irritable or negative after spending time in a certain place or with certain people, that is a sign that you need to protect and reset your energy. Empaths and Earth Angels channel so much energy through them, and may take on the energy of others.

Meditation is the number one way to reset your energy, especially with a devoted practice to start the day. When you are going about your day and you feel your energy begin to drop, take a short meditation, tuning into the breath, completely filling and emptying the lungs. Release stagnant energy with an audible exhalation through the mouth. Continue the full cycle of yogic breathing for 30 seconds or 1 minute, then see how you feel.

Make a commitment to lucidity. This means being devoted to maintaining your own high vibration, even in the midst of chaos. Pinpoint the things in your life that lower your energy. What steps can you take to protect yourself in those situations? What do you perhaps need to give up? It may be a low-level habitual pattern that served you in the past, but is no longer working for you. You may be asked to let go of a thought-form that served as a from of protection in the past. Get real, clear, and honest with yourself in contemplation. This is also a commitment to your self-love, so devote nonnegotiable time to those things that bring you childlike wonder and joy.

Create a personal sanctuary in which you can retreat and recharge. You need a safe, clean, high-vibe dwelling, even if its a corner of your room for meditation. I recommend adding crystals and plants that you charge up with your intention and healing, which in turn will create a more harmonious space for you to dream, contemplate, and reset your energy.

Nature time! Connecting with Gaia is soothing, nurturing, and grounding. In the sunshine and cool grass, your aura expands and cultivates that feeling of oneness and connection with all that is. Be still and silent, taking in the lessons and secrets Gaia will share with you.
