Nature & Energy Insights
“Everything is energy. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” Albert Einstein
"If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never ever have enough." – Oprah Winfrey
Have you ever wanted something so badly, and felt so determined to bring it to fruition in your life, that you could actually see yourself doing it, or having the subject of your intentions? That is precisely what I’m calling your vibrational reality. Some might say you “willed it into being”. You simply didn’t see it any other way. You didn’t allow your doubts to creep in – or if you did, you didn’t allow those doubts to linger. You spent *more* time seeing what you wanted. Jim Carrey has spoken numerous times about manifesting his success by writing himself a check for $10 million for a date ten years in the future. This is how he brought his vibrational reality into being.
I created my move back to California when I was living on the East Coast, several jobs that I’ve had, and, with my partner and a vision board, created our new home. That one was particularly funny because after we bought the property, we happened upon the vision board again and were actually pleasantly surprised that every single thing on the vision board was represented in this newly created opportunity. I have a dear friend who was determined to have a home, at a certain price, in a certain neighborhood. Everyone that she knew – including her realtor – explained to her that it was not possible. My friend, being a determined woman anyway, simply didn’t live in their reality – she lived in hers, the one where things you can imagine ARE possible. And guess what? She and her children have been happily enjoying that home – for which she paid the price she envisioned – for many years now. And she set an important example for her children of what is possible when you dream it. I smile every time I walk into her home and think about this vibrational reality becoming a physical one.
So let’s use some exercises to help illustrate the point:
1. Global warming: No, we’re not saying that scientists are wrong, that we shouldn’t be educated about what science is telling us, or otherwise shouldn’t talk about it. This is our PHYSICAL reality. But what we ARE saying is that the more time you spend in the dire PHYSICAL reality of what’s happening, rather than envisioning what you WANT to be in your world, we – and our world – have a tougher time bringing in a better reality in our future.
"Pretending is the fastest way to believing, and believing is the fastest way to receiving." - Mike Dooley
2. Past transgressions and traumas: While sadly we do indeed experience life with pain, trauma, and other emotional and physical injuries, this is our PHYSICAL reality. If we spend time reiterating all of the bad that has happened to us, or spend time thinking about how wronged we are in life, or continue to tell our story of these past injuries to whomever will listen, we are unfortunately unwittingly creating a circle of energy that cycles this anger, sadness, depression, and other issues back to us. I speak from my own experiences so I know all too well how to dwell in my own “history”. Luckily, I had some very wise life “teachers” who helped me to begin using visualizations and other tools to set me down a positive path of a different VIBRATIONAL reality that led me to where I am now. So let’s walk through another example:
"...When you begin to realize that when you change how you think and feel, you change your state of being, when you change your energy, you'll see a change in your life." – Dr. Joe Dispenza
And so it is in this context that I’m inviting others to join me for #WetWednesdays in which we spend a mere minute envisioning rain in California, Oregon, Australia and wherever else a region can benefit from it. I hope that you’ll join me!
Let’s SEE ourselves in a positive way of living. Let’s FEEL what it feels like to be in a different place in our lives. The more of our senses we can put into this, the more aligned we are to a new VIBRATIONAL reality. Give it a try for something you want to change in your life. What do you have to lose, while having so much to gain.
Our life lessons come in many shapes and forms. And so it is with my friend, Slurpy. Coming to me permanently thanks to an ‘ex-‘ many years ago, this friend wound his way into my heart for the last 14+ (!!) years. As he left his 14+-year-old body last night, I’ve been reflecting on our journey together and, just like those of Obi Wan Kenobi, his many lessons for me.
What is Slurpy, you might ask? He’s a little fish – with a BIG soul…..
Great consciousness in “little-bodied” souls
I intentionally did not call him a “little” soul because he had a BIG one in a little package. He reminded me regularly of this. I didn’t know anything about keeping fish when it was my turn to care for him. I knew I didn’t want to get *more* fish and I’d read that this type of fish can sometimes have issues with others. So to keep him company, I wondered if any of my crystals and their vibrations would be nice for him around his aquarium. What I discovered is that Slurpy had *distinct* opinions about WHICH crystals to place around him. And he reminded me that yes, indeed, each crystal has a distinctively different vibration. And that vibration may suit him differently at different times. And so it went – me laying out the crystals one by one and him RACING across the aquarium to sit beside the ones he liked, studying them carefully and generally being inquisitive and enjoying their company. The ones he didn’t like? He swam straight away from them, and refused to return to me until I removed them. Ok – no clearer message than that.
And so it went – me rotating crystals in and out every few months, giving him “new friends” and some new energy around his tank. Sometimes I’d try ones he’d refused previously and he’d be more receptive. Other times, same reaction. As I’d come and go through the day, I’d see him laying next to different ones. I’m guessing he was enjoying the vibration of them and getting something from each that I’ll likely never fully understand.
Communications from “little-bodied” souls
Over the years, I learned to just set the intention for Slurpy to understand that I was going to clean his tank – that way, I didn’t feel like I would startle him, and he would go lay under one of his rocks. And over the years, he got so used to this that I’d get a different message that, “No, I’m good to lay right here” and so he would - me pouring the water carefully into the tank and him just lying there like it was a water massage. One day, I bought a new brush and was intending to scrub some algae from the glass. Clearly this could scare him, so I showed him the brush, let him know what I was going to do, and with it, I got back a very CLEAR, DISTINCT picture in my mind’s eye: that of Slurpy ATTACKING this brush!! I thought, “my silly brain – I’ll come back to this later” and off I went. The next day – same message to him, same mental image back. Finally, I just decided I would get on with it and just presume my mind was playing tricks on me. So in I went with the brush – and out came Slurpy from under his rock – you guessed it - ATTACKING the brush....... YIKES!!!
That week, still thoroughly amazed and confused by what had happened, I spoke with a friend and intuitive, who I deeply trusted, about the experience. She said, “I get a message that he doesn’t want it in there because it’s unclean. Does that mean anything to you?” I thought about it for a minute and then gasped! “Oh my gosh – I just bought the brush and didn’t wash it off before using it!” Yep – that’s my fish. Teaching me 2 lessons in 1 – First, NO unclean tool in HIS home! And second, TRUST YOUR CLAIRVOYANCE (mental pictures). I felt so ashamed – and also appreciated the reminder of what I already knew: to trust my mind’s eye. He also reiterated a 3rd message: that Slurpy (in his little package of a body) was *just* as capable of giving me these distinct messages as any being!
See you again soon, Obi Wan "Slurpy" - the force is with all of us -
And so that’s what I’m doing as I say goodbye to my little friend of 14 years – I honor him for being my friend, and my teacher. And I know that he’ll still be that little teacher for me – just in a new form ….
See you again soon, Obi Wan “Slurpy” – the force is with all of us ….
Idea #3: Fancy a hike? There are typically ample parks that one can find that don’t always have a lot of people. Ground covered in snow? How about bundling up and snowshoeing out amidst nature? See what you can find …
Too cold where you live for outdoor activities? No problem! Here are a few for indoors:
have for the other. And the important thing is that you’re doing whatever you choose to do, together. So make the most of this special time -
