How to Align Yourself with the Energy of Spring to Co-Create More

Manifesting… creating. We don’t will things into being, we co-create what feels aligned with us, what serves us in some ways. And when we can slow down and feel into the energy around us to create with, we’re all the more powerful.

Seasonal shifts are potent times to be aware of the energy and how we dance with it. When we use this energetic knowledge to help us shift our energy and find our way, we amplify our creative process. We amplify the creative energy that available to use through Nature’s cycles and seasons, to find a flow.

Whether you’re creating something with your work, your business or with your life, tuning into this seasonal rhythm that’s upon us can offer you a way through with more ease.

So let’s talk about how to align with the energy of spring to create more... to dance with the energy in a way that serves you best.

Trusting the Big Asks from the Universe, with guest Robin Funsten

What do you do when it seems like the universe has a big ask of you… where you recognize that something big and new has to happen in your work, in your life, and you’re looking at it and thinking, this is big… and scary?

This week my guest is Robin Funsten. She and I talk about a pretty big ask that the universe had of her with her business. We talk about how to move into trust of that, saying yes, and how to keep saying yes through the ups and downs. There’s a whole lot of good juicy ideas in this episode. Take a listen.

Breaking the Rules with Your Intuitive Process (and with your life)

It's natural to want a step-by-step process when learning to work with your intuition and inner wisdom. And although there are skills to learn, this inner work is truly self-directed. It's an exploration. Letting go of any rules or steps, and trusting your instincts, is the key to finding your way into new information and growth. It's also a metaphor for living fully. This week's chat felt like a journey for me. With each thought, I was putting together ideas that turned into a pretty big "aha" moment for me. Perhaps you too.

My Favorite Healing Question and its Transformative Power

Over the years, I’ve come to ask myself one question that takes me furthest into my growth and healing than just about anything else. One question that gets me out of my head and into the heart of what matters.

It’s the one question I ask the women I work with too, that then takes their transformational work to a whole new level.

It’s a fairly simple question on the outside: “Who are you being asked to grow into?” But the true answer to this question is often a few layers deep.

Allowing the answer to come takes practice. You’re going to want to answer it with your mind and you’ll want to always think you’re totally on board with the idea of this growth… but that’s not how this goes.

So today, let’s talk about this question, “Who are you being asked to grow into?” Let’s talk about the process of answering it and how it can change you when you learn to listen in a way that let’s you meet that energy before you make any decisions about what you should be doing as that person.

Intuitive Goal Setting and the Chalkboard Method

A lot of people this time of year start thinking about what’s ahead and create vision boards to guide their way. But for me, vision boards don’t really go anywhere. They’re just not my thing (which I elaborate on in the podcast!).

I like concrete experiences and processes that tap me into how I feel in the moment and empower me in co-creative action. I like feeling like at the end of the day or week or quarter that I can see progress through what I do to give space for those goals to manifest.

So, this past year I wanted to find a way to stay connected to the ideas I had about my life, instead of journaling on them and never seeing those words again; instead of creating a collage of ideas and not ever being fully engaged with the next steps of creating them. I wanted something that felt interactive, where I’d create something that would reflect my internally guided ideas of what’s next, continually look at it (and not be able to hide it away) and also have it be a functional tool to track how things are going - like being able to check things off and see a sense of accomplishment.

What I found was the Chalkboard Method. And, being me, I let the process blend my intuitive planning and aligned action steps.

In this episode I talk about this super cool tool that can help you hold your vision and track the action you need to take to get you there.

Balancing Intentional Growth and Divine Guidance

I think there’s a balance that we need to find between intentional growth and letting the universe guide the way. Finding this balance often comes up when we think about things like setting intentions, having healing goals, being the driver of your life, and meeting the universe halfway.

To me, all those things are important - and necessary when you are on a spiritual path - a path of your own spiritual evolution.

I’ll sometimes hear people say that they don’t have any particular intentions about themselves and their growth. They’re in this wait and see space; going with what is and letting the universe guide them toward what is next.

And although I get that, there’s also something deep within me that keeps wondering… at what point is it necessary to take the wheel and drive.

In this episode, I'm sharing how I balance action and allowance and dish up a whole bunch of questions to help you explore this for yourself.

When Your Intuition is Like, “Yeah, You’re Not Gonna Like This”

It kind of sucks when your intuitive wisdom tells you something that you don’t really want to hear. When you ask yourself, your guides, or the universe a direct question like, “Is this what I’m to do?” and you get an answer that disappoints you in some way… or challenges you.

If you’re really listening in a way that gets you to your truth, sometimes you’ll recognize that you are being guided in a direction that’s hard, or not what you hoped you’d hear.

That’s when you know this stuff is real. That’s when you know you have a choice to make as to whether you listen to your head or your intuition.

So today, let’s talk about your intuition and how sometimes it’s gonna tell you things you just don’t want to hear... and how to deal with that.

Feeling Guilty Because You’re Not Meditating?

If you're confused about what your spiritual practice needs to be, then there are some key things you want to look at; to get clear on.

Sometimes there’s a real message in that confusion, like get off your butt and do your inner work. But all too often this confusion is about comparison and self-judgment; not knowing how to discern what you need as a spiritual practice, and trusting your instincts on how to integrate that into your daily life.

In this episode, I talk about how you can ease into a spiritual practice that works for you and kick that confusion to the curb. Because honestly, confusion around your spiritual process - how you tap into your wisdom for healing - is going to hold you back.

I offer up a few key ideas to be aware of when you start wondering if your meditation practice is the right one; if what you’re doing is what you should be doing.

Being an Everyday Lightworker (An Energy Renegade)

Being an “Everyday Lightworker” is a little bit like being an energy renegade. These days there’s a new wave of Lightworkers in town, those taking their work – and their energetic awareness – to the streets… into the everyday world.

Mission-driven, spiritually-aware, do-gooders are taking their awakened selves out into the world in grounded and practical ways to create change… for themselves and their communities. 

Everyday Lightworking isn’t necessarily about focusing on our 5D experience and working the energetic grids, but grounding our multidimensional experience and staying aware of that, while also tending to our daily life. In fact, it’s how we move our daily life forward.

In this episode, I’m talking about what “everyday lightworking” means, and offering up a few questions to get you thinking about your life, your energy, and how you move your spiritual mojo out into the world.

How Do You Know What is Truly Aligned with You?

How do you know when something is aligned with you?

If you feel inspired to do something, and it fails or falls flat, does this mean it wasn’t aligned with your soul… or is something else getting in the way?

Getting things to manifest can be tricky business. We can feel in our bones that something is right, and still not see it come to be. And although alignment is very important, it may not be all that’s in play when it comes to you creating what you seek.

So in this week's episode, I'm talking about how you can sense into alignment, and what gets in your way.

What’s Your Soapbox Story?

What do you care about? What drives you in your life? What do you believe, that helps you make sense of the world?

I think that everyone has a metaphorical soapbox that they stand upon, where they tell the story of why they're here, what they believe is the focus of their life.

Not everyone knows their “soapbox story” though, which can lead to feeling lost in life… feeling off-purpose. And some us struggle with owning our story, and saying that what we care about, really matters.

But our spirit work is to bring our soapbox story to life in some way – to create an impact on the world in some way because something about this life really matters to us.

This is about knowing who you are and what fuels your purpose.

Just think what would happen if you stepped into that and you let that fuel all of the choices that you make.
