Hello all my friends,
I am sending you some pictures of my progress. I have now gone through all of my old papers and pre-organized them, bought boxes, and have them ready for proper storage. As for the shredding I am about a quarter of the way through and while my house is a disaster from being completely turned around, I am proud of the progress that I have made. I discovered many old cords that needed physical removal rather than ethereal removal. old bosses, jobs, exes and friends who no longer deserve my attention or space. I cannot wait to throw out all of the paper, and shredding, but I am waiting so that you get to see the final result.
I will tell you that march will be not about de-cluttering, but deep cleaning. Home and body are in need of both a detox and a cleanse. I am preparing the way for a new life and these are both the first and last steps of paving the way. I want no more reminders of old thoughts and old ways. All old hurts are to be banished. I shall keep the lessons, but not the anger.
I will write more later!
OK so I went on a mad rush today after discovering that I have misplaced some very important papers. Now my house looks messier than ever, and i do not mean in a oh don't mind the dust bunnies, kind of way, I mean the way your would expect a house that has been turned upside down after 4 proper years of neglect.
while I do not need these papers right now, I will need them soon and to not know where they are has me more than disappointed in myself and has forced me to look at my mess. This summer, my friend received a message for me that when I get rid of the bags, that romantic energy would flow in. Well I did ask if these were metaphorical or physical,and she said physical. Around that time I had many bags to donate, so I thought those were it. No, nope not at all. Today as I am going through many many bags of old mail, papers, things to be filed and shredded, I found a small hand written note. This not was from someone, who I thought that I long ago got rid of everything. Last year I found a gift they had given me and promptly threw it in the garbage. I thought OK, the end of the cords the reminders. Nope like a knife this note cut me as I pulled it out of the clutter. I cried some last old tears and tore it to shreds.
Something in me has snapped and I have a feeling that this is the beginning of a very long de-cluttering journey. I want no more nasty surprises. I want to reclaim my home and thus myself. He will have nothing left of him here. There are other memories that got tossed into the trash, from others I no longer wish to have ties to. When Everything is shredded and all the bags are ready to be dumped, I will take a picture for you to really see what needed to go.
I still have not found my missing papers, but I suspect that I will find so much more than I am bargaining for.
Cords will be cut and I will reclaim all the pieces of my soul!
How have all of your been rocking your change? Well day one for me was spent cleaning up my office! and the with the exception of one day I have been slowly going through my old mail and have 4 bags of shredded mail and 1 bag of recycling from junk mail.
I know I know, how on earth did I let it get this bad, well two years of putting off the job will create at least two weeks work of work. so I have been catching up on my DVR as I go through each and every item. I will post a picture of all of the stuff to be tossed and donated.
Next month will be the Deep Clean, this month will prep the way. I did do one night of going through my old e-mail and there are literally 10,000 more to go. I have started to sort, delete and file away my e-mail. at least 1,000 gone. I suspect that the deep clean month will bring an empowerment that I have not experienced in a long time.
Right now, the de-cluttering has not been difficult, just tedious. All in all i can feel the result though!
Some quick tips for those of you who like me may have been struggling:
1. Play music or a movie to work to
2. Glad Zip Lock Gallon bags are great for sorting
3. If you would not ship it across the country, then do not keep it!
4. If you forget and skip a day do an hour the next!
5. De-clutter with the purpose of honoring your home as your body. The state of our home reflects the state of our body.... both of mine have been neglected. I am taking care of both now!.
6. Ask yourself, why you are choosing to keep something: if it is guilt, attachment, or any reason other than beauty, joy or usefulness, then chuck it!
Happy day to you all! and good luck!
In this month’s article we explore the delights of sound pollution.
Sound Pollution: Sound is everywhere, from the B flat hum of florescent lights to the subtle hums of your computer. Electronics emit so many sounds that we do not even hear them anymore. Much in the same way that a clock ticking disappears for a while. All of these sounds stop you from using your natural clairaudience (clear hearing) ability. I could list thousands of other sounds, but that will take up too many pages and too much time, instead I will tell you ways to combat it! Ear plugs are an obvious choice, or use sound to your advantage. Try listening to the crystal bowls, chanting, gong baths, drums, or any other meditative music in your local meditation studio. Other ways are to create a quiet zone in your home. You can choose a room that is already quiet and secluded and then use heavy curtains to dampen the sounds. There are also a few places that offer deprivation tanks to help you meditate or find quiet.
There is no reason we have to shirk modern society, but learning to use it to our advantage will help you immensely. YouTube has a wealth of videos that can help you meditate and tap into your chakras. Here is a list meditation tracks on my YouTube channel: http://tinyurl.com/nh8pln4 . As you meditate, pay close attention to messages that you are hearing. Often times our Angels, Spirit Guides, and loved ones will communicate through sound. Sometimes it sounds like your own inner voice, and other times it will sound different from you. It does not matter how it comes to you just that you are taking the time to tune in.
I hope all of you had an amazing challenge and are ready for a new one. Here is how my challenge went:
I also discovered that my sleep was better quality when I meditated right before bed, but that I need to get to sleep earlier so that I do not sleep during the meditation.
February: De-clutter for 30 min every day. either your physical spaces or your virtual spaces.
I am starting today and going a day into March. We have spent the month de-cluttering out mind, now we need to de-clutter our space. I am starting today, by cleaning the surface stuff in the house and then systematically getting rid of whatever does not either bring me joy, usefulness or, happy memories. now those of you with perfectly clean homes and offices, may want to clear out old e-mails, phone messages, photos. Essentially getting rid of anything that is draining your energy,
Some of you may do this with people in your life that are draining you. you may spend your 30 minutes deciding how much time you want to take back for yourself. Where in your life can you say the word "no".
I wish you luck on this challenge and will be here for support and inspiration. I will aslo post pictures of my progress here!
Here we are in the last five days of the challenge and I am still trying new ways to bring meditation into my daily life. This week I did meditation before sleep on most days but yesterday I did movement. I used my workout as a time to meditate and it cleared my head and my body. I highly recommend using meditation music or a repetitive activity to meditate to.
As many of you know we are undergoing a lot of change here at The Indigo, both online (Thank you Ken!) and in office. I decided to move the blog on here so that everything can be in one place and easier for you to navigate!
I am excited that our Online Metaphysical School is finally up and running! We have two classes on here already: Working with Your Spirit Guides and Working with your Spirit Animals. These two classes are great for both beginner and advanced students alike. I worked with my lovely friend Eileen (Thank You!) to make sure that the experience was as close to having a class with me in person as possible. Both classes are available Here:
Ask Me Anything
In this section I will answer one question from my subscribers every month or I will answer a question that has been asked of me often.
Question: J.D. Help, I think My child is an Empath! What can I do to help them?
Answer: The easiest and quickest way to help your child with their gift is to do the following steps:
1. Explain what an Empath is
2. Teach them how to properly open and close their chakras.
3. Explain that they are not obligated to take on Other people's emotional junk.
4. Give them some crystals to help them, Ground, Protect, and heal. (I have some Protection Pouches for sale in my online store)
There is no one answer as each child and empath is different, but if you would like some more help with your bright and beautiful empath, feel free to contact me!
Series: Identifying your psychic blocks and learning to remove them.
Ok so now that I have your attention, do you know how intuitive you actually are? Do you know how many things are blocking you natural ability? Well in this series of blogs I will help you to uncover these blocks and find your inner psychic!
There are a number of things that surround us every day that are blocking our intuition. Some of it we have control over and some things are beyond our control. You are however your own best psychic. Let’s start outside of ourselves.
Light Pollution: When we are surrounded by too much light we loose out on sleep and a natural awareness of time of day. As a child I was able to tell the time of day within 10 minutes based on feeling, light, and sun location. As an adult, with cell phones every where, and light crawling through all windows all the time, I have lost some of this. Don’t even get me started on daylight savings time.
This is one of those things that cannot be helped unless you live in an area with light ordinances. Yes they exist, many cities have limits on the amount of light that can be emitted at night. While you cannot control your city without moving, you can have a bedroom that is conducive to aiding your natural cycles. Try black out curtains or an eye mask. Also keep the electronic light to a minimum; cell phones, clocks, computers, or anything else that is bright enough to keep you awake. These two simple steps will help you to find your own natural cycle and increase the healthy benefits of normal Melatonin production.
Now how does this aid your psychic ability? Well, whenever you are out of your natural cycles you will also be throwing off your intuitive connection. The closer you are to your natural state, the closer you are to your higher self and tapping into all that knowledge from your higher consciousness.By reducing light pollution you also help your clairvoyance (clear seeing) ability, by allowing you to “see” through the veil of the 3rd dimension.
Take some time each week to experience the darkness, real darkness. I recommend this while sleeping or meditating. When you meditate in the darkness, you may find that your inner vision really starts to soar. Now in the beginning it may be your own imagination, but with enough practice you will begin to see your Guardian Angels and Spirit Guides. With a long enough practice of meditation and normal light cycles, you may be able to see through the veil all together.
