This time of year is so beautiful! The awakening of all of nature surges us all with beautiful energy of becoming. Even despite the odd vibe of us all harboring in, nature continues to show us, this is a time to renew and come forward in a whole new way. Our lives are certainly different at this time. However, the conditions support us to really go inward, reflect on things and support us in bringing forward creative ways to shift our lives.
My birthday this year happens to fall on Easter Sunday. It is perfect for me this year for I moved to Colorado during this epidemic. All is new for me in a new town, a new state, a new environment. I can feel the awakening of spring on so many levels. All things in life are different for me and it feels like a vacation. It is interesting for they say each moment is anew and being in this new place, I feel that so richly. Often we get caught in routine and a "groundhog day" feeling can occur. Yet none of us can feel that way this spring, for we are all experiencing the world in a new way.
I inspire you to really take this moment in time, this spirng 2020 to really awaken parts of yourself that will support your quthenticity. Many are get bored now, not sure what to do with all the busy chores done. We are so used to interacting with the world, doing so many things that can keep us busy. We can not longer do that in this time and I think it is good. I know I have rested more, getting used to the altitiude and oxygen level here and catching up on so many things that were put off as I got readu to move.
I also am finding huge spaces of "what should I do now?" My list complete and there is this open time on my hands where I can actually just sit and wonder what to do next. It is a great time to just relax. Relax truly for there is nothing to deter us from doing that. The energy of the northeast before I left had slowed down. I would drive and really just take my time driving. The west has even a slower vibe. The roads have only a few cars and learning a new town is easy with nobody behind me in a rush. It feels good to get this space inside. This moment to wonder about what is next? Not only in that moment but in general. We may have thought these things for an hour or afternoon, but now our time can really sit in this space of what to do next.
I am finding many parts of me that never had time to express are coming forward. This great level of creatiity is around. My daughter and I created a you tube and podcast of the Magical Holistic Healing Arts. A project I always wanted to do to share with others modalities but there was no time. I also feel the relaxation of creativity. You can not be in creativity if you are stressed and busy. The creative space only comes when there is space. Often you are lost in time and it seems to not exist when you are in creativity. This time of year is considered the most creative time of year. Rebirht, resurrection, renewal happening all around us. Life is awakening from it's sleep with incredible beauty showing up around us. This is the great surge of creation!
I am also finding this swirling inside myself. It is the only way I can describe it. I am entering spaces that I have not visited in a long time. Really getting a moment to remeet myself in a way. We become these beings over time that has habits and patterns, we label ourselves as on time or behind, organized or not, shy or outgoing. I am finding things inside that don't fit those old labels. Being in a new place, I have no history here. No one knows me as this or that. Whenever I met someone it is new in that moment. I know nothing of them other than what I am experiencing of them and they the same for me. It is a wonderful feeling of presence that I didn't really notice living in the town I grew up.
Swirling inside yes. Going into the crevices of Lyn that I have never felt time or perhaps interest in inhabiting. It is very freeing and quite fun. So many pieces of me that I am and never investigates. it is intriguing to me to get to know myself in such a way. Usually we are learning of others but at this time, we are learning of ourselves for we can. We can face our boredom, our annoyance, our irritation of this situation. Our fear of not knowing. Our panic and anxiety of when will I get back to life as I knew it. Our joy of being able to just do nothing. Our peace of being able to sit and look at the birds or be in nature and truly have the moment to get lost in it. It is a very interesting swirling.
My life will never be the same. I no longer will hang in the nature places or see the daily people I did. It is a full on rebirth for me. I imagine if I was still in PA. life would be very different too. We can't grab lunch or drink with those we love. We have to chat, text, facetime or zoom others. However I am sure neigbors and those who live close will get moments of relationship that may not of before. Local stores and the clerks we see become our new visits with others. There are so many shifts in how we live that I find exciting. I am at an air bnb and getting to know the owner in a way perhaps I would not of before. I am cleaning up her garden and supporting the beautiful yard for spring. If we didn't have this lock down, I would of been out investigating the town and classes about rather than gardening in the yard.
Relationships have a whole new meaning now. How we feel about our family and being harbored in with them 24/7. Human contact or interaction has changed. When your are out some people fully in fear, others happy to be interacting with other humans. A very interesting dynamic of social interaction. I find it really fascinating that I even have time to notice or contemplate all this. A renewal on all levels. So perfect as the earth is sharing it's new beauty. We can find new beauty in all life.
I also welcome all the emotions that arise. I a bit advocate of our emotional nature really being used as the guidance it is. We get the time to really let them come forward and wash up and out. They show us the quality of our thinking even if we don't notice we are thinking. It is the perfect purge of spring like getting rid of the old leaves and stalks from plants. Our emotions are a barometer of ourselves. We actually have the time to really feel them. Letting go as we watch them pass through. A grand cleansing of self only to find what we really feel about things. A magical process this year of really knwoing ourselves.
Blessing during this time that we are really getting an opportunity to reorder ourselves on all levels. There is discomfort as well as joy as we walk through this spring. I inspire you to find the joy in all this or atleast the rebirth as a stepping stone to yourself. Unknown to us all this situation yet life really is an unknown. It is supposed to be creative each moment. Perhaps we get to remember and really feel that relaxed, creative energy in a way we never could of before. I am using this renewal time to birth a Lyn that has never been before. Each plant and each tree has never blossomed exactly the same each spring. It is all new matter and cells creatied by the winter and the nutruients the plant has mixed together. We are truly the same. Never have we been in this moment before, this spring before, this lock dwon beofre. What wonder can we get from it?
I am truly reawakening to myself as I am now in this moment. I hoep you all are doing the same. The odd, the ugly, the beautiful and creative is all here in this moment. How will you use this for greater joy and happiness? Let us all revel in this new learning. Who knows what wonder and delgiht will come of it! We always seem to make it through whatever has been before so we will now. The question is how will we be reborn from it all? What good will come from it? What can rest, relaxation, renewal do for our lives? We are finidng that out!
Great love to you this spring!!

At each stage in life we evolve our mix of gifts. It is part of our growth, wisdom and path to mastery. Finding myself so free in Colorado for this next chapter, I am inspired to share how we find greater vitality when we celebrate ourselves! I think that was the blessing of the Himalayan Masters visit. I learned about my energy field, how to share that with others, how to feed, move and nourish my body and shift stress energy to power. Most importantly though, was the gift of learning my feminine body as different than a man's. That starts with celebrating yourself.
We truly don't celebrate ourselves enough! We celebrate others so fully and know the power it has. Yet we don't savor, revel or sit in OUR feel good moments. We whip past them onto the next task forgetting the deliciousness of accomplishment. We don't care for our sacred body as we do others, love on it and thank it for all it does. We push it, don't listen to it's call for down time and end up with a myriad of weakness and ails. All because we just don't really appreciate ourselves and all we do. It is a rat race of comparing, measuring our ideas against some ghosted desires that aren't even ours. It is truly a wonder we even survive this abuse.
This nourishing aspect towards ourselves is the key to our health. Men want competition, power, strength and endurance. Woman operate differently just by their very biology. Yes, we can do those things but extended periods of pushing is not a woman's way. We magnetize, draw to us, invite, intrigue, allure, attract. Very different energy power! One reaches out, the another draws in. It is the opposite. When we begin to honor our femininity and celebrate that power differently, we will excel in our health. Science is coming around to it.
Have fun, sink into our wonder and really feel good about ourselves. We all do so much for many running our lives.In this time of lock down, we really get to hear ourselves. We get to feel feelings that we are too busy to feel normally. Manage tasks we were too busy to handle It is such a gift of self we get to experience in this moment. In respite, woman heal and connect to themselves, they nest. Our cycle creates that way for our own inward time monthly. Woman work on cycle and we need to understand it. Our body has a natural, healthy need to step away and nourish itself. Go through the lower emotional body in order to cleanse and rebirth. This cycle is a celebration of life and how it becomes into being. We get in rhythm with our femininity.
When we are caring for others, we can still do it all when we understand how the flow goes. Being able to take our time is key. We have miraculous skills of completion. Our ability to multitask is powerful and we are designed that way. We need to revel in these gifts! We have different hormones and organs. It will take different use of energy to create a balance in our body.
Nourishing energy is fed by nourishing energy. It is a never ending well around us. As we celebrate, fill and acknowledge ourselves in nourishment as we do others, we find an unlimited supply available to us. This creative, nourishing energy is part of the magic we command as woman. It is our gift of giving life that taps us into the greater universal system of creating naturally. Through celebrating ourselves, taking time to know ourselves and feed ourselves what we need, we command a power greater than our own well of energy.
We don't have to shift our natural gift of nourishing, just find a way to give more to ourselves so we may be included in our efforts. Notice how much you are valued and do even if others don't show it. The world would collapse without the web of woman running it.
And if in this time, you are worried about the future, consider all the things you worried about have eventually worked out. I imagine our worries at this time will also work out. We have come this far and seems we will continue to be okay as we always are. Maybe not as we planned or wanted, but we get through just the same. Woman naturally know that and hold the space for that to be.
It's time to really begin a new spring of celebrating yourself. It may feel weird at first. Our training of how silly it is or how perhaps we could judge it as egotistical is interesting to watch. It is none of that. It is self esteem, self love and confidence. If we don't find joy in ourselves, we can't really receive it fully from others.
If you have areas that you want to be better, joyfully work on them. No one is really judging you but you. No one cares much and if they do, they just aren't of your tribe. It is good for us to be different and celebrate in that. Your magic that makes you you, can't come out if you are acting like another. We need your greatness fully at this time. What ever your gift, it is divinely inspired and needed as it is. No fluff or sharpening needs to be added.
Take the down time to celebrate who we are. Own it, know it and find the lil quirks that make you yourself. So much self development about changing ourselves. My schools were always about celebrating what you are that is good. From there the unnecessary falls away. The good revels further and becomes more. The law of energy to use and inspire yourself!! This is the natural woman's way. To see the beauty in all things and celebrate it!
The Fountain of Youth of The Empress!!
,The other day I learned a perspective on two energies that really has shifted my point of view! I did my own birthday Goddess Card reading for inspiration towards the year. In the reading, I got the card of Sekmet, an Egyptian Goddess of Anger and Rage as well as Bast, the Egyptian Goddess of Play. In reviewing the history, they were considered the two aspects of the Sun God. At some point they appeared the same and things evolved to two aspects of the Sun depending on where you reference them. The history I chose to integrate was of Amy Sophia Marashinsky in her Goddess Oracle deck.
This struck me as interesting for never have I heard the Sun, the power energy of our world, put forth as having two aspects listed as anger and play. It really intrigued me to digest this. It expanded me to look at at anger as the opposite energetic of play. Yet when I think of having so much fun and the power it exudes and consider anger with its power, I could see how these are two ends of the pendulum.
As it was described through this Egyptian lore, Play is nourishing, the life giving aspect and Anger is the destructive, protective aspect of Sun energy. This was beautiful to me. Never had I heard it put quite that way. It supported me to embrace anger not in a negative way as we often do. We seem to have many judgments on anger, getting angry not so supported and often we have seen very destructive aspects of anger. We can beat ourselves up for being angry or mean. Seeing it as a good use of power, as a viable way to express this life giving energy was curious considering our upbringing. There are definitely times when anger is important and a message to move, stop something or boundary yourself for what is going on is not nourishing!
Anger is just an expression or guide to us from our emotional nature that signals destruction is here. Something needs to end, be left behind or is not working for our highest good. It then becomes such a guiding, inspiring emotion! It is indicating what is not working. Rather then feel bad that we expressed it, we can embrace it's presence as a message to get rid of something or move in another direction. Perhaps just boundary and stop what is occurring for it is not working
for your well being.
More exciting was the life giving aspect of this Sun power is PLAY! That I found most inspiring! The highest nourishment comes from play!! How cool is that? And opposite anger? Wow!
Can we use the destructive energy of anger within to be cleared by playing?
I like that idea. I like that if we find anger within we can transmute it to nourishing energy by playing.
It gave me a whole new spin on humor as well. How often have we been in situations where anger was about and started giggling a bit at the insanity of a fight? it is almost as though our body being knows how to shift this energy to get us more present. Or even after a fight, you consider what occurred and you laugh for it was funny how you acted! Not that this happens always but it does. When sharing the story, we begin to laugh at the craziness that occurs with anger. How interesting is that?
I found clearly the message in these two cards in a new way. It softened the judgment of anger as well. It gave it a clear purpose and a way to understand this emotion that many stuff down or send out powerfully. All that is occurring is one is using the life giving energy as destructive
and rightly so for they are not feeling nourished or honored in the situation that is occurring.
Better yet is the power given to play!! So often I have been told to grow up, stop being so silly and get serious! Yet play is the highest nourishing power!! So being playful, silly, fun and inspiring is great nourishment and the top expression of Sun energy. That is the greatest news to me
on this Easter Sunday that also happens to be my birthday this year!
It makes sense when I see nature. The awakening of the plants, the blooms on the fruit trees and magnolias. Playfully they greet us in beauty of returning to life. The fruit, the high expression of the plant kingdom has this vibration of delight, beauty and inspiration that feels like play. Nature looks like she is playing often. When you see the animals frolic or the butterflies flit around.
The babbling of a creek or the rush of a waterfall, all have this playful feeling.
We feel like wondrous children often when in nature.
Curious, enlivened, delighted and fully present.
Very interesting indeed! That is why I love the lore, mythology and philosophies of story telling. Many ways of joyous living were passed through oral tradition in story. It wasn't necessarily the characters for they represented aspects, ideas, philosophies.
Perhaps for us to remember these things.
I also find it quite interesting that both these Goddesses are depicted in the form of cats!
Sekmet is a angry looking lion and Bast a cat of play! I will leave you with the poem on Bast
for it is the most inspiring words on how to heal with play!
Perfect for this time of being harbored in our homes!
I swirl and twirl, I hide and seek, romping and ranging, funning and frolicking,
My opportunities for self-amusement are endless and the pleasure that it gives me makes me purrr.
Life challenges never stop me for I know how to whole myself with play!

As we all sit separated from each other, it seems the perfect time to be with ourselves and our loved ones. So many need a rest from the rat wheel race and here we are forced to stop. I think this is a very good thing for most of us. We are desperately in need of rest. Perhaps that is why so many have challenged immune systems. We are rushing far too much. It can be the perfect time to catch up on things. Perhaps read a book, spring clean or chat with those you haven't had time for, even play some board games. It can be a great time to take a nap, bath, cook something extended, bake, be with yourself. It is like a snow storm where we just can't go anywhere.
Perhaps it is causing many strife, fear, panic and worry. This may be a state you already where in and now it can seem gigantic. For once you can just notice how current that state is. You don't have to let it run you. You can notice, feel and pray or watch as it moves. We have made it this far and we will continue. Whatever your worry, things do work out somehow always. I have lived on the edge of great wonder or going down for many years so I know the feeling.
Despite being on the edge of breakdown or breakthrough, I continued to enjoy what life offered in ways of small things. What happened was "all worked out". I got in some tight situations yet as if I had an angel, something always or someone swooped in and supported me through whatever crisis I had. I used to feel bad or less needing support. However, I learned so much about how me needing help, gave others opportunities to share and support. Many had never felt the power or joy of giving. I "needing" was a gift to them to learn what they had to offer and the power of offering it The human heart grows when we help.
It is not quite how our world sees things. Trained that if we need support, need rest, need to break out we are in some lesser state. It simply is not true. I helped so many in my life and when I was in need others just seemed to show up like magic. I think in this time we may find more magic than at others. Many will support and help that can. Many will need to receive help. It is how it all works. We feel better when we help and others who need it get support.
During this down time, consider to care and support others around you. I know we are not to interact but do be sure those around you who many need, know you are there. Be the kind offering. If you need, ask for support. We are a great humanity and these kinds of epidemics offer us opportunity to show our kind, warm selves.
As a homeopath and connected to many healers, I am not so concerned of contacting anything. If I do, this is a cold, flu virus and most of us will only see simple symptoms of flu. Many seem to of had it, didn't consider to get tested and recovered. It is important to be wise and cautious. Yet we can still be available to help others with soup, conversation, sharing items that may be out of stock, however it calls.
With this down time there is alot of good things you can do. I am personally, going through spring cleaning as I am to move in the next few weeks. I am enjoying the peace of not having to do or go at a rash pace. I am resting, studying, investigating and enjoying myself. I have watched movies, taken naps and made soup. It is a good time to learn what nourishes you to feel calm and relaxed.
We are all in this together. For me, it is a symptom of what I teach, not enough pleasure and play. So do these things that fill you with oxytocin. Helping others also does this. It is the elixir par excellent and it appears as there is not much else to be done. Slow down, sink into yourself, feel nourished and find the smile of getting off the wheel.
Health, healing and prosperity to you all!
A practice that gets me through life to manage even the hardest of things. Often we get so caught up in our situations, relationships and problems. We circle them about, use our imagination to make them even larger and create emotional intensity. I understand there are issues in life and indeed they are hard. However, from one who as others has had to face and deal with quite large situations that I could tapple over, I have used this practice often and it works.
As many tools as we can gather to support our experience here is a key to a healthy, abundant life of flow. I imagine I have a wand that flows out incredible sparkles where ever I cast it. Seems silly yet I call it my blessing wand. When things get too large, I feel overwhelmed or confused, as soon as I can catch my breath, I use this wand in my imagination to bless whatever is occurring. I say it out loud if I can, at least in my mind, I bless the situation! Often it makes me giggle which will shift my panic energy. It also puts a positive thought and emotion onto the situation, person or problem I am having.
Simple, magical and shifting in energy. This begins to relax your nervous system, bring in a lighter view and clarity to face the strife. When panic is alleviated, clearer options, ideas and ways to support you can come forward. I often do this as well when I feel good. Passing cars on the road, silently as I see people in public, a way to feel good for what I have and share this positivity into the world.
Life is a play filled with drama, blessing and hardship. Always a perspective shift is how we get ourselves going forward again. It is worth using this simple, playful tool of magical support!
May you be blessed with all you need!

We all have heard that the words we say to ourselves make a difference in our experience. We know this on a mental level. However, often our mind patterns still yip at us with these unkind things. So often we are flying through life and we really don't notice how we speak to ourselves. We all have shifted things here and there and then we forget about this ongoing work.
Many had a hard year last year as did I. I found myself catching up with others and repeating how challenged I was. Listening to others life and what was going on, I continually felt what a hard year it was. It took me to mid January to feel like I was recovered somewhat from the exhaustion. I found myself thinking the year was starting slow, wanting to be inspired. I keep resting until it bubbled up in me to take inspired action. I would check in with myself and found I just wasn't too delighted about the slow regroup.
Suddenly yesterday I awoke and was beginning my day and thought, you keep telling yourself what a hard year you had that it is effecting how you are now. Just the thought of it, made me heavy and sluggish. A light bulb went off inside me that said, why don't you start saying life is easy and fun? In that moment I realized how I kept bringing in this sluggish, hard way by my chatter and recall of the previous year. I suddenly filled with energy!
This chatter we say to ourselves and others is far more powerful than we realize. As I decided to tell myself that life was fun and easy, a whole new world opened. Again, we all know that our words have power yet we don't realize just how much on a daily basis. Our mind rambles in its judgments and patterns and can really mess with us experiencing the world ! Far more than we want to admit.
I inspire you to listen to yourself in this new year. What ever was before is past. Each morning you can call in the next thing in whatever form you want. The mind likes grooves and patterns. It is not to say that it is not truth but in subtle ways you must watch how it is reminiscing. No one wants to mingle in the challenging times but the mind is programmed too. Be watchful. I know these things too, yet here I am sharing how it was lowering my vibe in a subtle way, speaking my old experience.
Keep clear and real with what you are experiencing and how you describe your world to yourself and others. If it is not happening the way you want, shift your perspectives, words. Call in what it is you desire easily by making a new mind pattern that chimes in. The world has shifted very quickly in the few days I have been letting the new idea run in my mind. Rather than running through what exhausted me which exhausts me in the present thinking about it, I am claiming a new reality.
We are so powerful! We also have many moving parts so awareness is key. We have to be diligent in observing ourselves. When you have been in a challenge, you have created ways to get through. However, watch that they don't linger. Doing these emotional and mental check ins are invaluable. They can reset your entire disposition! I am enjoy this fun and easy life! It really is that simple!
Make sure you are creating a new year and not reliving the emotions and thoughts of a previous time! It is your responsibility. It is in your power to shift. Be very mindful for it is a subtle game this plane. Be alert. Claim what you want and notice the power of your words!

As a playful girl, I like to try all kinds of things. I love anything that can give me greater energy and positive direction. I love oracle cards, look up messages of animals that cross my path with intensity for me to see, I like to carry crystals, use all kinds of energy medicine. I take tinctures from herbs, essential oils for health and scent, I enjoy it all. I consider myself the elixir queen because this is all fun and creates awareness and presence.
I love oracles cards, opening books to a page to see what message it has for me. I see road signs that say the perfect thing or numbers throughout life repeatedly, hear people speak of what I thought of or had a question about, all these are synchronicities to life.
I call it the magic hand! When we ask a question with intention, it comes in from book, sign, person, song, quote, animal, where ever. The magic hand directing us to the perfect answer in a plethora of ways. This coincidence and synergy is really the workings of energy, the environment is actually reacting to us. We flood the energy field with a desire and it will bring it in to us if we pay attention. Certain people always see certain animals or numbers. These are all ways our environment can speak to us if we notice.
Oracle cards are a great way to set the tone for the day. There are so many in all flavors beyond the traditional tarot. They have heath activities, positive quotes, Goddesses, Masters, Animals, Sacred Geometry, Sacred Symbols, Angels, you name it and there is a deck. A current rage, coaches are making their own with their inspiration toward a creative life. I have often considered making a deck. I find these playful for daily life. I have used them when in crisis and feeling lost. I learned about my empathic gift through a Goddess deck that taught me all my emotions and the value of each of them.
In the old days perhaps these were considered associated with dark, evil or fortune tellers. However, Oracles like the Oracle of Delphi, many great leaders and seers have been revered throughout time. These days they are accepted as normal. Truly another way to send out an intention for help and an opportunity to give you an answer to your confusion. They guide and inspire, give you a new look at things or perspective shift when you are stuck. They are a way to add play and inspiration in life.
They don't tell the future. I see it as they answer us in ways to see how things may play out if we act a certain way and usually just give us another view of a situation or problem. They reflect back knowledge of our intuition that we already have. I find them as part of the magic hand for that when we seek, they help us find solutions and ideas that are eluding us. I use them to motivate me, give me a perspective for a day or quote of attitude as I go through my day.
They are so fun, playful, helpful and inspiring. I have never been with one who doesn't pick a card or message that did not resonate with what they needed to hear. Always relevant, always supportive and inspiring. Even when people get a "negative" message when they are in a darker state of consciousness, cards can speak to the value of this negativity which is really just a lesson. Not a bad thing.
I inspire you to consider using them to support creativity and motivation in life. There are many that are not at all esoteric but practical for every day life. It reflects important things to you and supports life to be more joyous. It develops your connection to knowing for you always know you got the right card so the answers is already within. These support you in trust in yourself, trust that the world is supporting you and give you greater present awareness by noticing things going on around. Realizing that it is a helpful place here and that a greater good is about.
A Playful, relaxing, inspiring, intuitive Tool! All building your trust and confidence in self and the world! I Love all these things!

We all are so in our heads all the time. We have been trained that mind is our most powerful tool to solve things. At times, absoulutely, yet often we see through our fogged glasses of old patterns. The mind is one of many tools. It makes sense of our other tools but it is only one of the many we have. Our senses are very powerful and continually giving and receiving messages from the environment. With the way of the new decade, many people"s senses are sharpening and giving us great information that we may not pay attention to. Using the intuition has more power than just the mind.
The intuition is the master tool we have. It even knows beyond the current time space continuum. I have grabbed things in the morning that made no sense and later in the day, it became clear why I had something with me that I needed. So I believe it can prepare us for the future circumstances. Wild to consider but I just go with it. The intuition can be connected to and intensified. It starts through one of our five senses. Some people see things, others hear, others feel environments and there are those whose smell gives indications. To use our intuition, we need then to be aware of our senses This only comes when we are in the body, noticing the senses.
As we spend so much time in our minds, not paying attention ot our senses, the first thought is to ground into our body. There are many ways to do this, nature being a simple one. What grounding means is to be in your body, not head so you are in the middle of your being. Then the 5 senses as well as the mind can inform you. We mostly ride out of our body, like in the cartoon bubble of words. It is outside the cartoon character next to the head. This visual of it, supports you to understand being in the body. If we were in our heart center or solar plexus in the cartoon, we would be centered and grounded inside our body temple.
A way to get to this position is just noticing your senses. That is why nature grounds. We breath and notice with all our senses and it relaxes us, clears and brings us centered and present. We practice by noticing and getting ourselves back inside our body being. The senses the tools of the body.
I have been using a practice of touching my heart as I ask myself questions or direction. This brings me into my body, into my heart which is considered a second brain of more power and the mind isn't running my way. I have played with this regarding small and little things. I take 3 deep breaths and then ask is this healthy for me? Is this my direction? Anything really! I PLAY with it.The picture above is a heart mudra. You can try that or I just touch my heart.
As we ground into our body, become more present and connect with our heart brain, the answers I get are the best. I don't always listen especially at first but later I realized I heard the more correct answer than my mind said. This builds trust in using your body temple, your vehicle of the physical world more often along with our thinking. Using the senses empowers your intuition which gets stronger just by playing with it. It is easy to play with, you don't have to listen to it. Yet it will support you to be present and factor in the information you get from the world..
Learning this all 10 years ago, I am amazed at how sinking into my body, listening to my senses and using this intuition has evolved and continues too. It is a smarter way to approach life, using all the tools of awareness we have rather than just taking directions from the mind. You find more clarity, answers, joy and fun for you are actually experiencing the world more. You are noticing with the senses and this alone brings more joy. You also realize how connected we are to the world and how great our body is. We also realize Life is more magical than you knew. Our body is connected to the world in a physical way that has 5 basic ways of sensing. In being aware of these you feel the world and feel better. You participate in the environment so lightness is about and this develops your sixth sense. It just naturally comes forward for you are listening to the world.
Using the heart to get answers about what you are not sure is a powerful tool. This too is tapped into your intuition so you strengthen your knowing . We all have this magical gift in our own way. Cultivating it, playing with it only supports you in life. I have found that it brings in more fun. It astounds me and then I am delighted. I am in more joy.
Play with grounding and noticing your senses. Put your hand on your heart, 3 deep breathes and ask a question. See what comes and try it. It is just a new tool that supports your body being present for you are being kinestetic as well as using the emotions and the mind all together. Alignment we call this. Why not investigate? There is nothing to lose. It is all about play. It brings in more joy, lightness, fun and high vibe to say the least. I think you will awaken to the incredibly magical world around you at all times that you have missed living in the bubble words outside of your body. We have this great body! Use it for all it offers and the senses the gift of it.
Your body knows how to rock the physical plane and the intuition is the leader. You will find a whole new world! You will know why I am so happy even in the darkest of times. The whole world is talking to me and supporting me. I just need to listen to it all then act!
Playing with life!
I have truly embraced the winter inwardness this year. Perhaps more than any other. It was a pivotal year for me 2019 and I am still reordering from all that occurred. It is wild that we so often move, move and move more. I am one to do this, get involved in many projects, activities and adventures. This last few months, I have done none of this usual Lyn things. It has been healing, slow, integrating time for me. When I used to be an organic grower, we so delighted in this imaginative time of year. I feel called to do very little which is so out of character. I just listen and await the call.
Believe me, my mind is often nagging me to get going and doing. I have challenged this in 2020 for I want to move because I am fully inspired not just for movements sake. I moved so much last year for I had no choice and I believe my body deva has rightfully settled on claiming a full rest. Not a day or two or even a week. But slow months of self care, romancing myself, study, visits with friends at my bird nest home. a few clients and very bulb like behavior. I am honoring this body of mine in a new way this year and honestly feel a greater grounding into myself.
As one who shares energy, how to shift, move and embody, I am having my own metamorphosis in this. I felt it before my illness as a sensation of feeling my feet and hands more subtly like my spirit was sinking into me deeper. It was a different feel and I thought is was fun and expanding. I did end up with illness, like my spirit pushed out whatever mess was going on in body. Cleansing it deeper and allowing the reset of my temple vessel. This has never occurred in such a way as yet. I am inspired by these new energetic sensings that I believe continue to get more clear the more you are aware. All of us changing in cellular ways even if we don't know it. Part of the winters work. The harboring of light within, growing, clearing and intensifying for the next season of emergence.
I am sure most are moving a bit more than me yet I encourage you to use this winters rest to support your upcoming year. All of nature cycles very purposely. For new creation needs rest, review and allowance of space for creative impulse. I feel this year is going to be big in activity and transformation so I want to be clear and ready to manage all the good to come. Winter has a very important part in the story of our life. Review, rest, reflect and create. All things that take inward time alone. There is no other way to do it.
How are you connecting with your inner spirit? How are you listening to the newness that wants to be birthed in the next season? Are you taking time to craft a new year? Pruning what is no longer working and allowing your life to have a new look? Are you challenging your old beliefs as we all grow with each experience and come out more wise? Are you using the cocooning phase of the year to your advantage? Are you resting, reflecting and loving on your wonderful body being? I certainly am. I feel the time will end soon with the Imbolc approaching where the inward growth begins underground. The energy will push up and out calling us to play and interact with greater vitality..
Be sure to use the cycle of the season as your guide. It has a greater purpose than just the beauty of nature. We are life and connected to all we see and it's pace effects us deeply on the physical level. Use this guide to support health, beauty, well being and becoming a greater expression of you. It has a rhythm for a reason. When you ride along with it, the spring will offer greater health and expansion then when your don't.
Happy winter inward rest to you!

I share so much information with my clients and the world on energy. Energy is what we all are at all times. Energy is emotional. It is energy moving and the emotions are the body or power of movement. To have more energy, we continually are learning to master our emotions or the energy moving. They come and go, fly by us or can settle in. When they settle in, we often will get in a loop with our mind and this we call stuck. We get into a circular pattern of mind/ emotion and this is considered stuck or a block. We bury these and drain our energy, give us a negative lens to see life and drag us down. We all know of this and often go to self development to learn how to clear these patterns.
The real key, which we all have heard is to detach. It sounds so easy and lovely yet when in an energy flow, a powerful frequency, detachment is not so easy. This is where the masters where so clever I learned from and taught me a law I use throughout my day. Sound and movement are quicker than thinking.
What exactly does that mean? Well when it comes to energy, the emotional nature, the mind, thinking our way past them or out of it, is the slow boat to china and could take us forever. Hours, days, weeks. Our mind can't make sense of all things let alone the question of why? It is unanswerable on most fronts and the great question of science and religion that eludes all. Why can be a rabbit hole or can of worms. Certainly there are times this is important but far fewer times than we realize. in the story of the Buddha, when he was shot by an arrow, he pulled it out. To lay there and consider who shot him, who sent it his way and why would be his death.
We detach easiest if we move. Movement causes us to be present often. We have to use our mind to get up, read something, sweep the floor, go to the car, gather our stuff, the mind loop is broken when we must move. Not always but we can use this movement to get our of a loop of low frequency. If you run, you will get endorphins that will shift your emotional state, Shifting the body on the physical level will get you out of this unanswerable state or negativity. You could walk outside and breath in the earth. Again, this draws the minds attention onto something else and you are off, detached from what was occurring.
Sound is the other tool so brilliant to shift. We all know the power of music for we listen and can begin to drive fast. Or we may cry at a song, or get very peaceful though music. It goes beyond this the power of sound. We could scream and that would get rid of that energy circling and shift us to a greater emotional state where we may laugh after we scream. In Aharaj Yoga we use this anxiety, emotional state to move and shout HA to clear energy. It is amazing that once the voice or sound is given to energy, it transforms rather than circles. It is expressed so it no longer is inside as crappy energy. We use these methods all the time unconsciously and we could use them simply to shift with consciousness.
Our body, how it moves, what is does is very brilliant if our mind would not mess with it. It knows how to reset, detach and move on for it is a survival system. When we begin to see the magic, work with it as the horse on which we ride, we can begin to love, train and connect with it, ultimately allow it to do it's job unimpeded, we see it's mastery. It is quite a sacred vessel. Our body will naturally vent often, using sound, to another to reestablish balance. We feel better once heard but also because it no longer can circle in us, it is out of our field of energy so new ideas, emotions and inspirations can fill in. It is quite simple and actually quite magical. It is not hard, it is practical.
That is why working out feels so good. We use this energy of not so good feelings, expel it in movement and create chemical processes in our energy that uplift us. It is quite basic and it doesn't need to take an hour. We can use simple movement or sound throughout our day, knowing it will sift this energy, these emotions very quickly and easily. We have power to release these endorphins, the parasympathetic nervous system elixir in a miriad of ways using simple sound and movement to detach. It allows present moment awareness.
A final point to share about this emotional nature. This energy moving that fuels all of our life to move, is to recognize the emotion or state. You don't need to judge it, For me, over this healing period of grief, sadness and tears come up at the oddest times. Suddenly I am crying for no apparent reason. Instead of hold it in, ask why at this moment and go down the rabbit hole, I just allow the tears. It is short lived as all emotions are if you don't get caught in the mind loop. I cry til I giggle that I am crying and not sure why and don't care. This energy is present. I notice, allow or accept then move or use sound to shift once it is given that movement. We can use our negative emotions as fuel, as energy to do our tasks even.
It is why if you scream, an extreme to share the point, express your anger, annoyance, whatever, you are giving it a moment to exist and flow out. We stuff energy, emotions, and this is where the problem lies and misuse of energy. So much energy is stuffed in hiding and it takes energy to hold it there so we get exhausted by not flowing with this emotional nature. We don't need to call it right, know exactly why, just acknowledge, perhaps express to ourselves or another or even a tree and it is out of us. No longer working against us.
This is how we detach. I say celebrate for Yippee, you didn't go down the rabbit hole. You observed, expressed or moved/burned that energy as fuel and you are master now to go forward in a greater frequency and mood. As you learn this you realize, why it is so important to only have those things about you that raise your energy and vibe, because it is extra work to keep detaching and resetting.
Hope this helps. It is easy, practical and I am gifted to understand this frequency, this energy moving. I learned this wisdom and every day it gets more clear and powerful so we are the masters of our movement, our energy.
It is mastery of the emotional field we are in. I call this energy management and teach it where ever and whenever I can!
