Energy Leaks in our Relationships

There are many ways to travel down the river of life. Imagine riding in a boat made from the energy you have gathered from your experiences and relationships as well as the energy you are creating with your beliefs, feelings, and thoughts. Seeing its shape, color, and size would reveal your inner world. Noticing the construction of your energy boat could give you insight.

That connection makes us feel safer, but we were still taking on water, slowly sinking, unable to catch the current that would take us to our potential.

Getting Lost in Doing

I had a plan, an intention, a destination. With some good ideas packed in my bag, a little bit of experience for a map, and a tattered journal of research, I felt so ready. I stepped on the path and started my journey.

I knew how it would feel. I believed I would arrive if I climbed the challenging hills and stayed steady on the learning curves. Along the way, I realized it’s quite natural to remember everything is energy in the beginning, but along the way it’s so easy to get lost in the ‘doing’.

Words Are Energy We Share

You could say each of us stands in the eye of the energy storm we create by what we believe about ourselves. Every thought that we accept, embrace, and nurture about who we are and how we fit into the world becomes the gathering force swirling around us. Like a tornado, it leaves a path of change behind as we move across the landscape of our days.

Though we may think ourselves small, sometimes slipping around the edges of life, we are never neutral. All energy is merging and commingling by its very nature. The words we use not only shape our experience, but everyone who sees or hears them. Remembering that can empower us to change our lives.

When You Change, Your Life Changes

When you change, your life changes.  So simple. So profound. So surprising when it happens.

empowerment, potential, courage, choices, intuition, self awareness, self help, childhood sexual abuse, Jeanne McElvaney, GoToSpirit.com, Time Slipping, Old Maggie’s Spirit Whispers,We set our sights on a destination that feels promising and begin our journey. Making new choices, we notice ourselves moving forward, but any given day feels more familiar than fresh. We might lose weight or learn a new computer program, but, at the end of the day, our comfortable routines rule the hours.

February Energy

February is just around the corner and it’s a great time to notice the energy you have already created around this month. Does it feel like a puppy romping in joy? A cat curled up by a fire? If you had to name the feeling, what would it be? Is the soup of energy you have simmering on your February stove a tasty blend of your favorite ingredients, over-salted with responsibilities, or peppered with spirit plans?

empowerment, potential, courage, choices, intuition, self awareness, self help, childhood sexual abuse, Jeanne McElvaney, GoToSpirit.com, Time Slipping, Old Maggie’s Spirit Whispers,Each of us has a sense of this time that is so clearly marked on the calendar of our mind. The energy of those beliefs will shape our experience while we travel through the 29 days. They will take us into March. Recognizing this empowers us.

Gold Stars for Manifesting

Goals and resolutions aren’t really my cup of tea now that I’m talking to energy. I like to think the New Year is an opportunity to gaze into a stunning, star-splattered night sky and imagine each twinkle is smiling at me with a possibility. And using my feelings like a magnetic coin detector, I get to connect to the shining potential I want to manifest. In quantum reality, I’ve learned this is my surest guide.

Will-power is a weak ally. Determination often comes wearing a cloak of shame as best-efforts began to fade. But passion tweaked, purpose tickled, creativity intrigued, and joy stimulated… these feelings will not only help me identify what I want to create in the months to come, they will carry me over the bumps along the way.

Energy Shaping Christmas

Christmas has an energy as surely as the tree we decorate. And like the tree, we get to choose how it will look and feel. We’re doing it all year long, but now, in December, with thought energy, belief energy, and feeling energy coming together with the power of so much focus all around us, we are hanging the ornaments of our Christmas experience.

empowerment, potential, courage, choices, intuition, self awareness, self help, childhood sexual abuse, Jeanne McElvaney, GoToSpirit.com, Time Slipping, Old Maggie’s Spirit Whispers,Knowing how energy works, I recognize I’m on a treasure hunt for the “ornaments” I want to use. Oh, I have a life-time of choices tucked away in the boxes of my experiences. I know the inclination to use tradition and heart-pulls from the past. But in any one moment, the Universe offers me a million possibilities and I’m inclined to get “jiggy” about the adventure of choosing which parts of the past I will weave into this year’s Christmas adventure.

Seasons of Change

I’ve always resisted the metaphor of seasons representing different ages. And yet, standing in my yard yesterday, doing my version of a few yoga stretches, I looked at the rich color of leaves all around me and saw a connection.

empowerment, potential, courage, choices, intuition, self awareness, self help, childhood sexual abuse, Jeanne McElvaney, GoToSpirit.com, Time Slipping, Old Maggie’s Spirit Whispers,There are times in our journey when the tender spring-time shoots of our personal growth give way to change. What was once so firmly attached and held close as we nurtured our potential becomes something we want to share. We become the autumn tree. Stunning in the hues we have acquired, we find ourselves ready to let the leaves of our experience fall into the community around us.

Engaging the Energy Fields of Opportunity

Every opportunity can be seen as a bubble of energy with its own color, currents, and cadence. From our usual place of activity and comfort, these appear on the horizon of our journey like roadside stops. They might offer excitement, growth, more of what we love, new vistas, or another direction.

empowerment, potential, courage, choices, intuition, self awareness, self help, childhood sexual abuse, Jeanne McElvaney, GoToSpirit.com, Time Slipping, Old Maggie’s Spirit Whispers,Knowing these bubbles of energy possibilities will change my days, maybe my destination, and surely the route to my intentions, I have been inclined to respond instinctively. But, lately, I have noticed a change.

Money

Money, like everything else, is energy. We pull it out of our pocket or purse knowing others will recognize its power to buy things, but at the quantum level, it is nothing more than vibrating molecules. And each of us determines how it fits into our life by our beliefs about money.

One person might push it in his pocket feeling it would have no effect on his day. Another might be delighted about using it to buy popcorn. The wonder of any amount of money is determined by the value we place on it.
