2014 Reflections

The year of 2014 has been about 

I'm going to be honest and say that it was an extremely challenging year for me in all aspects of my life. I was in a very fearful and stressful place for most of the year. I worked through some health issues involving unhealed emotions then in July, my family and I were involved in an auto accident where I sustained a brain injury. 

I'm a Gemini and very analytical. Always thinking, thinking, thinking. Never in the present moment. Thinking about the past and planning for the future. I'm a voracious reader, or was before the brain injury. I love to research, but after the auto accident, my life was literally shaken up and dumped upside down like an overstuffed junk drawer. I've always prided myself on being able to multitask. I use to be able to do several things at once very efficiently. Not so much now. I can't focus on anything! Only one thing at a time. I even cleared out my bedroom except for a bed because the pictures and other items were too stimulating. I'm sure Eckhart Tolle would say that this is a good thing.

I feel this whole planet is transitioning from dense energy into a lighter/higher frequency. Consequently, Gaia and many of us are clearing and shifting our energy. We all have specific struggles or vibrations from this lifetime and past life times that are entangled in our energy field. Some of us are dealing with irrational phobias, health issues, relationship issues, unhealthy patterns, unexplained anxiety, etc. Due to this unique time on this planet, many issues are now re-surfacing in order to be healed and released for good! This can be an exhausting process but don't lose heart because we are letting go of things that we no longer need to carry from lifetime to lifetime.

I know that the imbalances in my life this past year do not define me. They have only been lessons for me to learn. My body is my best friend and one of my greatest teachers. Over the years, I have learned to scan my body and ask what messages it is trying to convey to me. Many healers have discovered patterns with their patients where certain emotions are connected to certain ailments. However, we are unique and the best way to figure out what is going on in your body is to go within. In order to help others learn how their body may be trying to get their attention, I'm going to share some personal details. Below are some of the messages I received this past year:

Subconjunctival hemorrhage- Feeling stressed out due to relationship issues.
Staff infection- Not feeling supported or nurtured. 
Shingles- Feeling prickly, angry, resentful and hypersensitive. Not feeling worthy or good enough. The shingles helped me deal with some childhood trauma. 
Upper back- Feeling burdened by responsibilities. Too much thinking. Learning to support myself.
Neck- Relationship problems. Too much thinking. Feeling frustrated. Agitated.
Brain- Psychic debris. Mental noise. Feeling scattered, conflicted and foggy. Lack of clarity. Teaching me to live in the present moment. 
Breast cyst- Lack of self nurturing. Emotional shocks of worry, fear and separation. Learning not to be codependent on others.  
Cold/flu- Feeling worn out and scattered. Wanting a reason to rest. 

After receiving these insights, I made several big changes in my life to support healing and a more balanced way of living. Most importantly, I try to remain open to the darker aspects of my psyche without getting too freaked out about it. I'm learning that it is much better to face the pain rather than stuff it back down deep inside. I have chosen to incarnate as a human on Earth, one of the more challenging planets to reside. I am here to learn and grow. We should all be proud of our work here regardless of where we are at on our journey.

What I learned this year is that "excessive thinking" is a distraction just like taking drugs, eating junk food, staying busy, watching sports, playing video games, etc. I have found that being more present in my life has allowed more time and space for creativity and things that bring me joy. The opposite of how I operated before, "thinking" that I never had enough time to get everything done. Now I'm letting go of worries in order to live in the now and be at peace. Meditation and breath exercises have been very helpful.

Some Tips When Trying To Receive Guidance From Your Body

1.  Find a quiet and comfortable place to sit or lie down.

2.  Do a body scan. Bring Divine white light through the top of your head or crown chakra and let it slowly move down your body while noticing anything that seems dense or needs attention.

3.  Focus your attention on the area of concern and simply ask, "What would you like me to know?" This may seem a bit corny to some but it works. I believe that every cell in our body has an innate intelligence that can offer guidance. We just need to tune in and learn to listen.

4.  Say a prayer asking God or Source to cleanse, heal and protect your body and that any dense energies that no longer serve a purpose for your highest good be released into the light.

5. If you don't get a response just allow the Divine light to do the work and remove anything that no longer serves you.

In today's rush we all think too much, seek too much, want too much and forget about the joy of just Being.   ~ Eckhart Tolle

Trusting Life!


  1. I find it very uplifting that you are going through the beats of your past tragedies and with somber sobriety. Not many people can muster that, as I'd imagine most would be overtaken by the upwelling of cries of pain first. Automobile accidents can be such betrayals of circumstances, though they are also made up of culprits. There are a lot of closures you will have to sue up in that case, and I hope you get to that as soon as possible. Thanks for sharing that! I wish you all the best!
