Lightening Up Your Feed

You're hurting. It's palpable.

Something awful has happened. You've been fired, someone has betrayed you, you lost a battle perhaps you didn't even know you were fighting .                          

We feel you.

In your day to day life, your energy speaks it through your verbal/non verbal communication. It's tough. We gather around and support you in your time of need.

We ask that you be healed.

We want that for you, please - also, want that for you -  and take a pause - sit with your event and the lessons.

Call on your guides.

Call in the Angels.

Cry when necessary.

Do not be afraid to ask your close friends for help.

We feel you.

But in reference to the big picture, the great big one with all of the outcomes and lessons learned and the pain and suffering transformed, there is a commitment that's important to your own dignity, your self respect, your on and off line reputation that's imperative to your healing process & I think it's about time to make:

Keep your social media feed clean.

Listen, we are all guilty of it. Underhanded digs through GIFs or MEME's at someone who betrayed our trust. And no doubt that you have every right to exercise your freedom of speech.

But your words have such power & impact that penetrates deeply through the internet and beyond.

A temporary experience you're in may suddenly be graced with a wind of change, for example, a couples or friends break up could be reconciled or a post about a stolen item may turned up found, in the possession of the person who posted. Drawing lines in the sand may cost you your own peace of mind and a door slammed on a perfectly imperfect miscommunication.

Our thumbs rarely think of negative repercussions to unmindful social media activity and because it's become commonplace our personalities have become so reactive to our devices to just let our thoughts just go. And sure you may think you have marked your output 'friends only' but do you remember all 1059 people on your friends list? One or two of them could screen shot your share and forward it to the wrong person. I know personally there have been people who posted nonsense on Facebook after experiencing a misunderstanding with me. While I'm in a place to forgive/pray/release I definitely have a hard time forgetting some of the pain their social media posts brought.

Here's are some thoughts on how to reign in the feels before sending your vibes be it in a snarky meme, tweet or online photo - out across the internet universe.

Would it hurt you if you were applying for a job?

Could a loan or financial manager use it against you?

Would a rental agency or landlord deny you an application because of what you are about to share?

Would/could it affect a higher education application?

Would you repeat the sentiment to a stranger in the supermarket for others to hear?

Is it something that could affect your children/parents/family?

If you are an entrepreneur, is what you are about to say worth an ounce of bad marketing for your business?

Could it sever any chance of friendship or relationship in the future?

Is it legal? - Please consider if what you are putting out into the universe could be considered threatening, harassing or slander.

Are you being insensitive to someone who may be grieving a significant loss?

Is this post necessary? Is it kind?

What really does this thought have to say about YOU?

We've all seen the political posts no matter what side of the party line that we live on that make us grit our teeth. We have people on our feed that only post photos of their food, their parent 'fails' or incessant work outs and yet others who seem to only find the doom, gloom or see red over what seems to be almost everything in their life.
We can scroll past politely can't we?

(psssst you can stay connected to them by politely hiding their feed.)

 While we're here, these bullet points may prove positive to you in face to face conversation as well. The world is a very small place and more often than not, you never know who you will meet that you may leave a questionable impression on.

The point of this entire post is that your words have significant power. They tell a lot about your personality and how you are capable of handling or not handling yourself in the face of adversity.

They also create your reality. So please be mindful of putting others down online or out loud, of attacking business owners, perpetuating gossip, airing out your DL or just using social media as a dumping ground for monkey mind.

Keeping your output light will bring more light into your life.

Give it a go for the next 365 days or simply start by taking the #30daysofgratitude challenge.

Post something you want to illuminate that brings you happiness or joy and see how your feed and the world changes around you.
I promise if you are feeling something that's the opposite of awesome it will help your healing experience too.

All my love,

4 Reasons Why Badmouthing Others is BAD For YOU.

I was talking today with a friend about the importance of words.  How you use them, positively, negatively any which way.  Words are like weapons.  Once you put them out there, they are pretty much impossible to take back.  Sure you can say you are sorry but it doesn't wipe the blood and guts off the floor from the initial bullet wound.  Forgiveness is key, but let's be mindful of our words from the get.  Dig?

Here's a repurposed blog to go along with those thoughts.

Everyone gets hurt. No one is perfect. People mess up. Mistakes are made. But the cross you bare when you badmouth someone else's questionable deeds or good fortunes, their life advances or personal tragedies is a very heavy one.

When you engage in loose lip service per say "warning" peers or anyone within earshot about someone or someone's "drama" or perhaps you seem to regurgitate the pain someone has caused you over and over to friends, strangers, clients, family members....wel…

Dear "Light Worker" You're Not Going to Want To Read This

We the souls riding the wave in this human experience have become quite uncomfortable with the day to day workings of living or how to make one on this planet. 
In a large percentage of my readings and coaching, questions like "what is my souls purpose?", or "what is my perfect job?" are often the focus.

The wake, eat, work, pay bills, don't eat because you paid bills, try to sleep trappings of our modern society is soul crushing at times.  I personally find myself wondering how best we can make our time here on the earth ship more fruitful, more fun, less stressful and leaning into the real work which is relationships, connection, being of service and elevating mankind to no avail.
If you have a life, if you live in the western society it's hard to escape the pervasive nine to five culture. In addition, it's hard to navigate the dark mental, spiritual, emotional side effects of our socio-economic structure.

If you are a light worker, if you identify…

Social, Spiritual, Political views.

"There is no separation between what you DO, what you SAY & WHO you are. What you believe and WHAT you stake in the wellness of your SOUL on are true reflections of your spiritual values. If you're the one oppressed or suffering, it's easy to feel the link between the spiritual and the political.  Injustice is a reflection of disrespect, and often fear or hate. When we look upon the suffering of others, especially those who are different than us, it's tempting to think the same rules don't apply.  This is never true. No one deserves to have their human rights stripped, to be unsafe, to be systematically kept down, or to be bombed.  It's time to I've a f$ck. As we approach the transit of Uranus in Taurus, it's time to challenge yourself as an individual to value human liberty over what is convenient or easy.  If your spirituality doesn't include social justice, how do you justify that?  Being spiritual is NOT taking pictures of your tarot reading, …
