13 Tactics For Overcoming Overwhelm

Are you feeling stressed and overwhelmed?

In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with the demands of daily life. Whether it’s work, family, or personal obligations, the feeling of being stretched too thin can be overwhelming. However, it’s important to remember that you’re not alone in feeling this way. Countless individuals from all walks of life experience overwhelm at some point in time. The good news is that there are tactics that can help you overcome this feeling and regain a sense of control. In this article, we’ll explore 13 tactics for overcoming overwhelm, so you can start feeling more confident and in control of your life.

1. Admit to yourself you can’t do everything.

Some problems are bigger than any one individual can fix. Some problems belong to other people. We may care about them and can help if asked, but it’s not our place to shoulder their burdens. (Take comfort in Star Trek’s prime directive of not interfering in a culture’s right to
self-determination.) What you can do is take care of yourself, and put yourself in the best possible condition to create a fulfilling life and to contribute to the world. (Consider the possibility that doing the first amounts to the second.)

2. Make your well-being a priority. Optimally, the priority.

Give yourself permission to take care of yourself. The air mask metaphor is overworked, but still appropriate: Put your mask on before you help others with theirs. If you’re gasping for breath, you won’t have energy to spare for others.Several tactics grow out of this one:

* Say “no” to requests you don’t want to accept.

This step is tough for people-pleasers. The lockdown has moved a lot of people off this.

* Let texts and email sit; respond when – or if – you feel calm and ready.

* Take breaks from people and situations that endanger your well-being. That includes – and even starts with – breaks from the news and social media. Some platforms spread outrage and despair and hopelessness like viruses. Steer clear. If you find yourself falling prey, leave.

3. Pick your battles.

Don’t take the bait when invited into a fight. People are so polarized right now that you have little chance of winning someone over to your side, no matter how many facts you trot in front of them. Don’t waste your energy arguing with people online. If you encounter anger or some other form of negativity and you respond to it, you are giving it air and validation. If you respond with anger or the like, you are fueling and increasing it. No one wins except energy vampires who feel on discord. Instead, neutralize. Don’t engage. Even better:

4. Send compassion and forgiveness to people who set you off.

See the fear and damage behind the words and behavior that’s bothering you. The adage “hurt people hurt people” may help. Send something soothing and calming instead of what they’re dishing out. You will be disrupting the cycle of negativity. Also, if you can pray for people you dislike, you can pray for anyone.

5. Monitor your energy.

Notice when it lags, when it rises, and when it feels off.

6. Take your energy back.

Visualize a horseshoe magnet, point it at a person, place, or situation, and feel the magnet pulling your energy back.

7. Use water to clear your energy field.

If you take showers, as the spray hits your head, tell it to wash away anything you’d like to release: emotions, sensations, anxiety, cares, thoughts, interactions with specific people, anything. A tub is not suited to this because you will soak in whatever you’re releasing.
If you have access to open water, such as a lake or an ocean, lie on a float and imagine anything you’d like to release gently seeping out of your cells into the water.

8. Leave open spaces in your schedule.

9. Indulge in fluff.

Sometimes escape is exactly what your spirit needs. Hallmark Channel movies do the trick for some people. For others, it’s old sitcoms, or trivia games, or animal videos. Don’t judge yourself. Treat yourself.

10. Indulge in nature.

Going to a natural setting can be restorative without your logical brain getting in the way. Simply looking at plants or water can soothe your mood. When the temperature permits, take off your shoes and put bare feet in the grass, dirt, or sand. Hug a tree. Run a hand across
growing herbs or flowers. Can’t go outdoors? Run a nature video on your computer or device or TV while you’re engaged in some other activity. Scads of videos are available of swimming fish. Some aquariums run webcams of floating jellyfish, or frolicking otters or sea lions. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is an especially good source for this and sometimes broadcasts waves gently crashing in the Pacific outside its walls.

11. Enjoy your food.

Pay attention to it. Eat it without distractions. Allow yourself dessert now and again.

12. Look for like-hearted people.

Gravitate to people and groups that share your core values. There’s strength in numbers and also comfort in knowing you’re not alone.

13. Tend to your own garden.

Focus on your little nook in the vastness of life, and keep it as tidy as you can.

 

In conclusion, feeling overwhelmed is a common experience, and it’s important to remember that it’s okay to take a step back and prioritize your mental health. By implementing these 13 tactics, you can start to take control of your life and regain a sense of balance. Remember to be patient with yourself and to take things one step at a time. You’ve got this!

Hacks for Online Astrology

Anyone remember looking up your sun sign in a magazine or newspaper astrology column? Those days are long gone. Now astrological information is all over social media and the web, and it tells you so much more. You can have a lot of fun with it. You can get insight into
yourself and your pals. You can pick up helpful navigational tips for riding the energies. And you can also come across misguided, garbled, or outright wrong statements masquerading as guidance.

Here are some hacks for choosing astro-sources and using them wisely.

Baseline: Pay attention to what resonates and what does not. Do you feel empowered? Optimistic? Forewarned? Fairly confident that you can handle what’s coming? Worth checking out. Do you feel manipulated? Or alarmed? Do you find yourself arguing with the information?
Probably not a good match. And if you follow someone for a while and the information never seems to pan out, that’s not worth your time.

Look for astrologers whose style you like. (Chill? Practical? Heavy on technical jargon? Educational?) Many, many professional astrologers offer free forecasts and talks on social media, YouTube, and their own websites. Try a few, and switch it up now and again. Follow a few general forecasts. These come in several lengths: daily, weekly, new moon and full moon, monthly, and yearly. These give you a general framework. Consulting the current astrology is like checking the weather report. A general forecast gives the mood and energies that are affecting everyone, no matter when they were born. Just as knowing the probability of snow tells you to bundle up, a general forecast prepares you for what lies ahead so that you can take appropriate action. A good forecast points out times of flow, emotional storminess, low-energy stretches that encourage couch potatoes and comfort, and flurries of misunderstandings, delays, and confusion.

Look for sun sign forecasts, too, if you like them. These are generally monthly in scope, though other time frames do exist (for example, what Saturn in Pisces means for each sign). Online fashion and lifestyle publications host some, and they’re also available from a number of astrologers.

For fun, shorts and memes can be entertaining, and often there’s something instructive in the stereotypes. Instagram and TikTok abound with people acting out the signs in various scenarios (“water signs on a date”) or barking a list of traits. Sun sign memes are all over social media too, depicting the signs as everything from dogs to food to Ghibli Studio characters. Mood boards illustrate an astrological season or aspect with a collection of memes and video clips. Approach them as snack food, though, and not something on which to base actions or decisions.

Watch for poseurs. Appearances may be deceiving; looking cosmic does not necessarily equate to competence or wisdom. Neither does having a gazillion followers. Compare the content quality to other astrologers with a longer track record or associations with professional schools or organizations. And always check in with your own reaction. Again: do you feel empowered? Optimistic? Prepared? Or worried? Depressed? Dreading?

Consume enough and you may well want to learn more – how to read a chart, for example, or what eclipses might be bringing, or political astrology. Primers and videos are all over the web, and use discretion as always. Pay attention to the source. If it’s an astrologer whose
work you’ve been following and respecting, check it out. If you come across something from someone unknown to you, notice your first impressions. What’s the look and feel? What’s your reaction to the the person’s voice (written or spoken)? Do you feel comfortable?
Energized? Excited? Lulled to sleep? Repelled? The answers are clues.

The sky’s the limit!

Making Friends with Your Intuition

Intuition is not just for professionals. It’s something everyone has—even you. And the more you get to know yours, the stronger it will be.

Oh, but you’re not intuitive, you say? Maybe you don’t think of yourself that way, but your intuition has been working for you all your life. It’s been in every hunch you followed. It’s there when you text a friend who answers saying she was just thinking about you. It’s the funny sensation that inspires changing your route or departure time or plans. It’s behind any strong reaction you have when you meet someone (especially if you immediately think of a person you had a bad experience with).

There are many ways intuition may communicate with you. They are not mutually exclusive, and you might be stronger at some types than others. You might hear. You might see images or visions. You may get feelings. You might simply know.

The form doesn’t matter; what’s important is an open and trustworthy line of communication between your mind and your intuition. You can shore up this line and build trust. The more you act on your intuition, the stronger the link will be.

An easy way to pump up your link is to follow through on even the simplest messages. Try this for a few days: When a simple idea comes to you out of the blue, act on it. Does a particular coffee shop cross your mind? Go to it. Don’t try to force anything; don’t expect a magical event in flashing neon lights. Just go, and be open. You may never know why dropping in was important. That’s not the point; showing your intuition you’re listening is.

Or you’re driving down a street and wonder about turning right when you’d normally continue ahead? If you’ve got the time, turn right. Change your route. Once when a friend of mine did this, she ended up at a store filled with buckets and buckets of her deceased mother’s favorite flower – her way of saying hi.

Another easy way to build your link is by actively monitoring your energy and listening to it. The second part is essential. Suppose you get a weird or anxious feeling in your core. In that case, that’s a warning signal to tread lightly or, better, turn back, even if what you’re walking toward makes sense logically. The most recent time I ignored this, I was trying to clean up my end of a misunderstanding. Unfortunately, I walked into a minefield from which the relationship never recovered.

Your energy can tell you how to proceed. Excitement or enthusiasm means “This way, please!” A sick or weird feeling, dread, or anxiety means “No!” (See my earlier example.) If you’re neutral, that could mean “not worth it” or maybe just “not now.”

Paying attention to your energy will also help you learn to distinguish your thoughts from your intuition. If something is running through your head again and again and again, check how it feels. How it makes you feel? Are you anxious? Worried? Tense? Obsessed? That’s probably not your intuition.

Do you feel calm? Do you have a strong sense of knowing independent of logic or empirical evidence? There you go; that’s your intuition. Here are some other ways it may show up. Does a notion fall into your head that has nothing to do with what you’d been thinking? Sure smacks of intuition. Does an idea or impulse wash over you? Bubble up from deep in your body? (I once heard “This isn’t going to work” rise up from my core and knew instantly my new live-in relationship was hopeless. Which it was.) Again, not your thinking; your intuition.

Don’t assume intuition is always quiet, though. Sometimes it comes with a fierceness that makes sure you pay attention. Does it call out your name? Listen to that, tout suite. Do you have an urgent impulse? Definitely not your mind, but your intuition. Hop to it!

All these approaches, little or big, respect your intuition and encourage it to grow. Think of them like watering a plant. Have fun with the process. You’re building a tool for life that may end up amazing and amusing you.

Overcome Fear & Build Intuitive Resilience

Overcome Fear

Build Intuitive Resilience by Checking your Fear-o-Meter

This third-dimensional reality is how most humans know of life as it is, without question. This dimension is predominantly driven by fear in a systematic global society which can make us very vulnerable. Many people accept it as it is and endure it. Many also don’t accept it and try to fight it.

The way to control people’s minds is first through fear, which promotes self-doubt and vulnerability. Then to offer them a solution in a loving manner, making them feel special and important. When you buy into this often-subtle manipulation, you are lost well in the illusion-driven third dimension. And once lost in this, your mind can take you places so far away from your soul that it is very concerning. 

In recent years with the changeable environment we have endured, people’s fear-o-meters were through the roof. With nowhere to turn, we literally saw people fighting over toilet paper while shopping and buying guns during the pandemic. I remember watching this with interest. Have these people got no concept of Spirituality? Why are they so very fearful? Toilet paper? Is this the way through? Guns won’t kill off a virus, threaten or hurt as many people as you think (all in the name of fear, fear of what? Not having enough supplies? Or just fear itself?) Neither toilet paper nor a gun will stop you from catching a virus. In the aftermath of the pandemic, we have watched many areas of society go into a vast nosedive, with significant increases in crime, add to that the more prevalent natural disasters and environmental challenges, the volatile housing market, and the rising cost of living . . . and more . . . all this is third dimension driven.

So why the considerable fear reaction? The pandemic was something not expected by most and denied by many. Health authorities wanted strategies in place so we would be prepared; sadly, this did not happen. So, we were left in a global scramble and mess to sort it all out. (We were living in a safe illusion, a bubble of misconception). And just like a house of cards, it only took one aspect to fail, and it all fell to pieces. Life has not challenged us to build an intuitive resilience.  

My own experience has made me feel that we, as humans, must absolutely become more in tune with our intuition, and therefore live more according to the internal guidance that this provides. So we can survive and thrive and evolve in a positive direction. We should build a solid resilience to fear by looking at it as fear itself, regardless of the circumstances. 

To stay balanced and on track intuitively, we must check what I term our fear-o-meter. The way to do this is through self-awareness. Seeing the self and becoming in tune with our emotions. To many, owning and admitting that you are scared and afraid is seen as rendering us powerless. However, it is not. On the contrary, it is very powerful because once we admit and surrender to the fact that we are fearful, we then open intuitively to the higher flow. I like to acknowledge the fear, then I visualize a fear-o-meter (mine looks very much like those signs you see near forests and in the country that rate the fire danger), but yours can be whatever works for you. The more intense the fear, the more likely you are to become irrational. Your thoughts may take off in a direction seeking power and control. Then you have completely lost touch intuitively. So if you rate your fear, this will indicate how out of balance you are.

Our fears are often linked to our conditioning and beliefs, previous life events, past lives, and worries about what may happen, so I also like to do a past, present, and potential future fear rating. That way, you have a good sense of navigation. The past and the potential future sits away from us energetically (it’s not in our energy field until it becomes reality in our present), so once those fears are acknowledged, they often just transcend into a neutral state. The present is where most of the fear exists.

Now I need to emphasize that we also must employ common sense. This should not be difficult because, in my view, common sense and intuition partner up together very well. Common sense keeps us grounded, and if we find ourselves being pulled in a direction that does not sit well with our intuition and common sense together, then we are heading off track. Nothing should pull you anywhere. You should feel relaxed and clear, not stressed, anxious, or even on a high. 

I was lucky. I was not fearful in the pandemic. The only time I felt my intuitive vibration lowering was when a relative of mine on Facebook posted about how afraid he was, and this is terrible, and if you say you are not afraid, you are lying, and so on and so forth. I began to doubt myself, then quickly recognized it was only his fear being projected onto me, and therefore was an illusion. So, I came back to center and intuition.

Self-awareness is, in my opinion, one of the most powerful tools in the universe. Of course, surrendering from fear to the higher flow takes time and practice, but as you build up your resilience, it will become easier and, in time, second nature.

The Energy of Cognitive Dissonance and the Link to Spirit

Cognitive dissonance is the occurrence of actions that do not marry up to the thoughts of the individual. The old “do as I say don’t do as I do” type of behavior, however the behavior is unconscious, because even though aware of it, the person cannot seem to stop themselves from this behavior. You can find this energy everywhere, it is found in generational beliefs, in different cultures, in our sexuality, our gender roles; it is pretty much everywhere in the human experience.  It is from learned or forced beliefs bestowed upon us about ourselves, how we should behave, and the world and people in it. It is heightened in those who have an illusionary view of themselves, and those who are not grounded.  (The majority of people are not grounded).

An illusionary self-view also contributes to this, and this may come from low self-esteem or delusions of grandeur, or a need to win, those are just a few examples. It is found where we play out our psychological control dramas, that of which we have learned to survive. When we become aware of what we are doing but cannot seem to stop it, then we are in cognitive dissonance.

Humans are naturally intuitive beings, and through generations of being taught what to believe, how to behave, being caught in family trauma and dynamics, we lose a large part of our intuition and find ourselves locked in the condition of cognitive and spiritual dissonance.

Once we lose ourselves to this, we find ourselves repeating patterns over and over and over, until such time that we wake up and break this cycle. When we wake up, we see what we are doing, our thoughts and actions, and there is a surge of lighter energy as this breakthrough is made and we are self-aware. Many people call this a light bulb moment, other people may experience a breakthrough, and others who have endured a particularly difficult path may even have a nervous breakdown.

In this moment of break through our consciousness is suspended in time and space (in the world of Spirit), as our minds process this new realization, and therefore find new ways of doing things. It is from here that we choose to create out new reality. This is not always easy, because in this physical reality, although we see things from a new Spiritual perspective, and we open more, which means our natural psychic abilities and empathetic abilities are heightened. The creation of our new reality can be limited, due to the everyday structure of the societies that our humanness has created. So even though we see what is real or not, we can be left to endure the old ways out of necessity to survive. This moment can also bring to consciousness a whole myriad of feelings, intuitions, good and bad, it can be confusing because it is condensing everything that has happened to a person into one energetic porthole, which is much like experiencing a lifetime in a moment.

For example, we may see through someone’s manipulative behavior, where others have not yet woken up to it, and may have to continue to tolerate this behavior and navigate our way around it until such time that it is safe to make the actual change that lines up with our new level of consciousness. We may also feel very different like we do not belong, yet we do not know why. Or we may have suffered abuse so painful that our mind has sheltered us form those memory by blocking it and suddenly it pops up.

Sometimes when we have a breakthrough, the answers do not always present themselves immediately and we may find ourselves falling back into dissonance and repeating the same pattern again. Sometimes the newfound awareness is scary, because in many ways it can be like letting a bird out of a cage that has only ever known life inside that cage. It can be overwhelming.

When we understand that these light bulb moments or breakthroughs and change of perspectives, are taking us through to the world of Spirit and Higher Consciousness then we can slow down and ask Spirit for guidance. We can understand that we are not losing our minds, we are actually finding our true Spiritual mind, and we can be comfortable in seeking help. It is wise to question everything as you go forth on this process.

This is where the support of top-level tested and approved psychics, such as those on BAP (Shay Parker’s Best American Psychics), healers and readers the unconscious as well as therapists are needed. In these troubled times, we can literally observe the patterns of others, however it is more important that we learn to observe our own patterns. Once we see what we are doing, we can ask Spirit to help us to grow and change.

To summarize, the world is Spirit is that place between Spiritual cognitive dissonance, and a new potential reality. This is like that place we go to as we are falling asleep, the place between our learned consciousness, and our dream state, as we travel over to the world of Spirt in our sleep. It is pure Spirit.

As a healer and transcendent psychic reader,  meaning that I read both the learned consciousness and the unconscious (the hidden thoughts, beliefs and patterns that bind us), I have helped many with these breakthroughs, as we link energies to connect with Spirit for guidance along the journey of our life path.

Manifesting & Divine Timing

Dear spiritual friends, we have delved into deeper issues related to Manifesting our desires over the past month. We first addressed the ‘Year of the Rabbit’; and then focused on Omens/Signs; last week, we discussed self-imposed barriers to manifesting, and this week we are looking deeper into a controversial topic: Divine Timing.

Why is Divine Timing controversial?

Regarding this topic, there are two schools of thought. One school of thought says that sacred timing matters. The other school of thought says that Timing does not exist. And as long as we believe “it” and become “it”, Timing does not matter. For this blog, we will take a middle-ground approach. So, let’s talk more about Divine Timing, shall we?!

What is Divine Timing?

It is the belief that everything in your life happens at precisely the right moment. Although events may seem complicated, Divine Timing means that the Universe places people, things, challenges, and more into your life at the right moment. Not surprisingly, we tend to understand why things happen the way they do after the fact, and that’s why we are called to trust Divine Timing.

Why should we trust Divine Timing?

There is incredible peace when we accept that the Universe is always “conspiring on our behalf” and that our spirit team is always guiding us. It is a fantastic feeling when we genuinely accept that things happen for a reason. As co-creators of our life, it is up to us to co-create with the Universe by working with what is presented to us at this present moment in time, in Divine Timing.

When we think about our past and look at the challenges presented, we can assess how much we grew from those challenges. Divine Timing, the Universe, will never give you anything you are not ready for. If you were not prepared, you would not receive omens, and you would not be getting new ideas or suddenly feel inspired to do whatever you want or think you should do.

How can we trust Divine Timing?

When my clients ask me this question, they mean to ask: how can I trust that everything will work out? This question comes from our perceived need to feel in control. To know that action A will lead to outcome B. For example, we are used to placing an order online and knowing exactly when that order will be delivered. But as you all know by now, the Universe does not work this way.

We must ask for it, believe that we have it, or that it will happen, and then become one with the desire. As Neville Goddard teaches, we must assume the feeling of the wish is fulfilled. We must be confident that whatever we desire is already ours. We are not waiting for it to happen in the future; we already have it. By working under this strong, full-of-faith assumption, things/events/people will show up in our lives in Divine Timing. We need to let go of control. Let go of the need to know when.

Just assume the state of the wish is fulfilled, and you will have everything you want in Divine Timing.

To learn more about manifesting and assuming the state of the wish fulfilled, I encourage you to read “Your Word is Your Wand” by Florence Scovel-Schinn or the works by Neville Goddard.

Self-Imposed Barriers to Manifesting

Manifestation means we immerse ourselves in a visualized environment so we feel we are living in that environment until it becomes our reality. Some people believe and teach that manifesting does not involve action. Books like The Secret, for example, teach you to sit quietly and imagine what you want, and you will get it. I wish to tell you that things are just that simple.

Manifesting also involves action, but inspired action. We must follow the signs or omens so that we act inspired by the universe. There are many reasons why something we desire only manifests or takes a short time to display. Often, those reasons involve some self-imposed barriers or blockages. One self-imposed barrier is our beliefs. Unfortunately, our thoughts do not always align with our desires. Imagine, for
example, a person who has failed at manifesting a remote job. That person might have an unconscious belief that they do not deserve the job or that perhaps remote jobs are only given to “smarter, younger, or more tech-savvy candidates.” Ideas can also include fear of the responsibilities that may come with tremendous success, that minor roles are challenging, etc.

Whether the beliefs are conscious or subconscious, they can hold us back, so we must reflect on our thoughts and see if they create barriers to manifesting. To identify your beliefs, use your awareness and ask yourself, “What is my belief about success? What are my thoughts about money? What are my thoughts about love, relationships, etc.?”

Once you are clear about your beliefs, you can change them. But, of course, changing beliefs will take practice and dedication. First, you must question yourself and reflect on your feelings regarding a situation. But, with practice, you can change your beliefs, and your desires will manifest!

Another self-imposed barrier to manifesting is self-sabotage. Self-sabotaging can be present in many ways. For example, a person has a very successful YouTube channel, and to continue to grow the track, the person has to create more engaging videos. The person knows
that they should take a content creation course, but they start procrastinating. They don’t want to do it but don’t know why. They don’t feel motivated. Suddenly, they realize that they are afraid of tremendous success. Being fearful of greater success is a belief, so the person starts self-sabotaging. There is a book called “The Big Leap.” In this book, the author discusses how most of us operate in our comfort zone but never get to our site of genius. When you procrastinate about taking action, I want you to pause, reflect, and examine your underlying beliefs and why you might be self-sabotaging your potential manifestations!

Another crucial factor in manifesting is Divine Timing, and I added my vision board to my manifesting plan. The more I stay focused and keep myself free and clear of stress and anxiety, what I ask for comes back to me, and it is always better than what I asked. God has a plan for all of us. The key to this was turning to him, allowing him to help, and having faith and trust that will go a long way in your life.

I encourage you to join me on next week’s blog, where we will delve into this topic. Until next week!

Following Omens

I remember the first time I read the book The Alchemist. It was early in my spiritual journey and the book intrigued me. By the way, if you haven’t read the book yet, I encourage you to get yourself a copy or listen to the audiobook which is available for free on YouTube. 

One of the main points in The Alchemist is that we have to learn the language of the world/universe. The book says that the world communicates in Omens and that a path has been established for everyone to follow. We just must read the Omens that are left for us along the path. But what are Omens? Omens are messages that foretell the future. The universe can, and does, communicate in Omens/symbols but sometimes we are just too busy to pay attention. 

The energy of 2023 says that to manifest, we must be in the receiving mode and be patient. The year of the rabbit encourages us to align with the flow of the universe. We must get out of our head and get into our heart, and learn to speak the language of the world like the book The Alchemist tells us. So, in this blog I will share the meaning of some omens present in nature. The omens might be presented to you in dreams, pictures, when on a walk, etc. Just make sure that you are in the receiving mode and aligned with nature’s flow, so you don’t miss them! 

Rabbits: they appear on your path to bring you messages of abundance and/or fertility. 

Crows: when crows appear on our path, it means that the truth will be finally revealed to you.

Spiders: feared by many, disliked by more! But spiders are an omen that tells you that a friend will come to help you.

Ladybug: these cute little insects are omens of joy and good luck. 

Snake: although they carry a negative connotation due to the Adam & Eve story in the bible, snakes are a great omen that tell you that your passion will open doors of power.

Deer: When you see a deer, your spirit team is telling you that they know what you are going through. They’ve got your back, so you should have faith!

Lizard: lizards are great omens that remind us to pay attention to our dreams. They tell us that our dreams are, or will, be revealing something important.

Owl: these birds are considered enigmatic and mysterious. As omens, they bring a clear message that we need to proceed with caution because something BIG is coming our way. 

Cat: friends of many, but disliked by some, cats remind us that hidden forces and spiritual powers are with and near us.  

There are many other animals and object omens that the universe uses to communicate with us. When you notice “something” on your path, pay attention. Connect with your inner guidance to figure out the significance of it for you and your life.

Manifesting in 2023: The Year of the Rabbit

Early last Spring, I planted my garden. I was very proud of it because it had a ton of vegetables. I might finally become the vegetarian many spiritual practitioners recommend us to become. 

I woke up one morning, and all my plants were gone! And there it was, that little rabbit with his belly complete! I ran to Home Depot and bought a fence and new seeds. Aha! I am smarter than you are, little fellow, or so I thought! A few days passed, and my garden looked green and beautiful until the little fellow found its way back inside, and everything was gone. All my vegetables were gone again, and so were my dreams of becoming a vegetarian, sigh. That little fellow had the patience of (as my very Catholic aunt would say) a Saint! 

I waited and waited for days to find another way. The rabbit was gentle in its approach, quiet, alert, skillful, and patient, but also quick when it found a way to enter my garden. And that’s how the energies of 2023 are, which it’s the year of the rabbit.

When I connected with the energies of 2020 and 2021, I remember they felt fast and furious. There were many rapid changes due to COVID-19 and its impact on everything we do. When connecting to 2023 energy, however, change is still coming, but the energy is gentler, quiet, and more patient. For many years the world operated on male energy. Now, in 2023, the power feels more female. We have experienced a lot of changes, and now we should be in our receiving mode, but just like the rabbit, we should remain alert and follow the omens left by our spirit team to make changes. When we follow signs/warnings, the changes happen quickly (just like the rabbit!) but will be more purposeful, intentional, and direct. 

Working from our female energy will allow us to be guided by our hearts, not our minds. It will enable us to listen more and stop acting mindlessly. We (humans) are coming from an era of “grinding,” “making things happen,” and taking control. In 2023, however, we are being told we should remain open to the signs of the universe, open to the omens, and follow them and act when we see them, while still following the natural flow of the universe. Control less and listen more is what the energy of 2023, the year of the rabbit, tells us to do. 

I hope, dear spiritual friend, you follow me on the next three blogs as we will delve into how to better align with the energies of 2023 to manifest our desires in career, finances, and, most importantly, in love. In the meantime, I would like to recommend a book (a biography) that changed the way I understand how the universe works. The book is titled “The Surrender Experiment” by Michael Singer. I am looking forward to seeing you in the next blog!
