    differently in each of us and in all things The best way to connect with your own spirit is to start by recognizing what makes you come alive Your spirit has its own presence its own unique vibration that is totally distinct from your personality which to a large degree is formed as a defensive shield around your spirit Begin to wonder what your unique spirit is really like Getting in touch with your own spirit is the first step in getting in touch with spirit guidance How would you describe your spirit Not your mind not your body but the eternal fiery life force called you Is it gentle Passionate Commanding Tentative Creative Shy Playful Where in your life do you feel competent What activities engage you so fully that you lose yourself What lifts your spirit Next begin noticing what feeds your spirit By this I mean what experiences activities and energies give you strength fortify and nourish you at your core leave you feeling satisfied content with life and comfortable in your own skin What activities experiences and energies delight and surprise you draw you into life help you embrace life head on leaving you at peace within yourself Start by paying close attention to your day to day life Recognize the moments when you feel fully engaged and peacefully involved What are you doing Focus on activities that leave you with a sense of contentment and satisfaction Better yet note when you laugh feel light hearted and weightless in your skin These are the moments that your spirit is responding to These are the experiences that open you up to the larger world of spirit guides Start raising your sensitivity to your spirit by being very aware of and honest about how you feel Responding to your spirit and giving it what it needs leaves you feeling satisfied and peaceful For some of you knowing what your spirit needs may be perfectly clear so go at it and begin to respond Don t worry that feeding your spirit will wreak havoc in your life a little goes a long way when it comes to being sensitive and responsive to your spirit If you love nature for example a guilt free walk or run through a park or nature preserve or a few hours in the garden once a week is all that s necessary to feed and restore your spirit The key word here is guilt free If you love shopping and exploring exotic places a few hours in new neighborhoods new stores will do the trick You don t have to buy or buy much to satisfy your love of adventure Just enjoy the variety of the outing without excuse or apology for taking time for yourself If you have been so disconnected from your spirit that you don t know where to begin don t worry If you are genuinely open to the idea of reconnecting with a little exploration you ll remember These

    in touch with your own spirit is the first step in getting in touch with spirit guidance How would you describe your spirit Not your mind not your body but the eternal fiery life force called you Is it gentle Passionate Commanding Tentative Creative Shy Playful Where in your life do you feel competent What activities engage you so fully that you lose yourself What lifts your spirit Next begin noticing what feeds your spirit By this I mean what experiences activities and energies give you strength fortify and nourish you at your core leave you feeling satisfied content with life and comfortable in your own skin What activities experiences and energies delight and surprise you draw you into life help you embrace life head on leaving you at peace within yourself Think about what nurtures and feeds your spirit and even more important how sensitive and aware you are of your spirit and to feeding it the experiences it needs to thrive That is your first assignment to feed and nurture your spirit If you re disconnected from and insensitive to your spirit chances are very high you will also be disconnected from any input from your guides as well Start by paying close attention to your day to day life Recognize the moments when you feel fully engaged and peacefully involved What are you doing Focus on activities that leave you with a sense of contentment and satisfaction Better yet note when you laugh feel light hearted and weightless in your skin These are the moments that your spirit is responding to These are the experiences that open you up to the larger world of spirit guides Many of my clients admit when asked that they have very few moments that feed their spirit and they just push through life with a sense of duty and responsibility They feel more like they re enduring life rather living it let along enjoying it If this is you then you ve become hardened and insensitive to your spirit and consequently cut off from the spirit world and all its gifts In our puritanical culture where people are encouraged from childhood to put others ahead of themselves and to call any self interest or self care selfish it s easy to understand how such deadening occurs Until you reverse this debilitating thinking your spirit will suffer and you will shut out the gifts and guidance of the spirit world Start raising your sensitivity to your spirit by being very aware of and honest about how you feel Responding to your spirit and giving it what it needs leaves you feeling satisfied and peaceful For some of you knowing what your spirit needs may be perfectly clear so go at it and begin to respond Don t worry that feeding your spirit will wreak havoc in your life a little goes a long way when it comes to being sensitive and responsive to your spirit If you love nature for example a

    very high you will also be disconnected from any input from your guides as well Start by paying close attention to your day to day life Recognize the moments when you feel fully engaged and peacefully involved What are you doing Focus on activities that leave you with a sense of contentment and satisfaction Better yet note when you laugh feel light hearted and weightless in your skin These are the moments that your spirit is responding to These are the experiences that open you up to the larger world of spirit guides Many of my clients admit when asked that they have very few moments that feed their spirit and they just push through life with a sense of duty and responsibility They feel more like they re enduring life rather living it let along enjoying it If this is you then you ve become hardened and insensitive to your spirit and consequently cut off from the spirit world and all its gifts In our puritanical culture where people are encouraged from childhood to put others ahead of themselves and to call any self interest or self care selfish it s easy to understand how such deadening occurs Until you reverse this debilitating thinking your spirit will suffer and you will shut out the gifts and guidance of the spirit world Start raising your sensitivity to your spirit by being very aware of and honest about how you feel Responding to your spirit and giving it what it needs leaves you feeling satisfied and peaceful For some of you knowing what your spirit needs may be perfectly clear so go at it and begin to respond Don t worry that feeding your spirit will wreak havoc in your life a little goes a long way when it comes to being sensitive and responsive to your spirit If you love nature for example a guilt free walk or a run through the park or nature preserve or a few hours in the garden once a week is all that s necessary to feed and restore your spirit The key word here is guilt free If you love shopping and exploring exotic places a few hours in new neighborhoods new stores will do the trick You don t have to buy or buy much to satisfy your love of adventure Just enjoy the variety of the outing without excuse or apology for taking time for yourself It s in the initial moment when you respond to your spirit that you will first encounter your beautiful guides and companions My mother for example loved to sew and she spent many quiet contemplative hours in her sewing room where she often felt a connection to and even had long telepathic conversations with her guides The more she fed her spirit and felt peaceful the easier it was to connect with the subtle energies of her guides If you have been so disconnected from your spirit that you don t know where to begin

    by our imagination As Mark Twain wrote I ve experienced many terrible things in life a few of which actually happened When our sixth center is open and balanced we pay close attention to the world around us and refrain from jumping to conclusions before learning all there is to know about any given situation or person We come instead to intuitively understand that appearances can be misleading and there is always more than meets the eye I believe it s important to emphasize the power to create that our visions and versions of the world possess Whenever I encounter a client or student who holds a negative point of view inevitably he or she has negative experiences And when he or she holds a more optimistic and friendly outlook on life they no doubt create something more positive Last week I had two clients from the same office come for a consultation The first saw her boss as a mean spirited and unfair dictator who pushed her too far didn t treat her respectfully and was abusive and insensitive The second client saw the same boss as an overworked but extremely creative person who was dedicated to the business and the employees in it sometimes forfeiting his own paycheck in order to offer bonuses and incentives to his employees as a thank you for their hard work Who was right They both were according to what they envisioned How many times do we project a negative image onto others in order to justify our own insecurities I had a client who insisted on seeing her husband as uncaring and rude and ignored the fact that he worked three jobs in order that she might stay at home to raise their children and perhaps his crabby behavior was due to the reality that he was tired and overworked rather than uncaring or rude In her conflict over staying home rather than working she projected onto him that he was a bad guy How we see things is a choice You can see the clerk at the grocery store as indifferent and impolite or you can look deeper and see the fatigue and exhaustion in his or her eyes and choose to overlook the grumpy behavior You can see your kids as too busy to call you or you can look deeper and recognize that they are simply trying to get on their feet and its harder than when you were young You can see the world as unfriendly and become defensive creating a wall between you and others or you can see that you are simply afraid and fear rejection and look in the mirror and see your own beauty and vulnerability and recognize that the world might be able to see it too if you take the chance to let them in The more we want to see the truth behind appearances the more we look deeply into things and not just at the surface before we draw our

    spirit Ruthlessly go through your stuff and get rid of everything that doesn t feel positive The importance of releasing old energy and keeping things light and simple can t be overstated And it shouldn t be limited to the physical plane We are just as bogged down with old attitudes negative thoughts and beliefs heavy and melodramatic emotions and even old relationships These are energy suckers that interfere with your ability to hear your Higher Self Clearing your shtick as my 82 year old Jewish friend Ethel calls it may be more challenging than clearing your physical space but can be done If you want to reach out for something new you must first let go of what s in your hand Taking that even further let go of what s in the closet under the bed and in your mind and emotions Release your grip on anything that doesn t serve your spirit and call in the troops to help you You need to free your attention to hear your psychic sense If you re consumed with misery you ll miss it What s worth holding onto that would cost you that Our planet can no longer afford to support those who insist on wallowing in the muck of old and negative vibrations We re here to have a joyous life experience not dwell on the dead past Green fire My favorite psychic ritual to open the way to a higher vibration on all levels is to make what I call green fire Green fire cleanses the atmosphere leaving it in a pristine state and invites a fresh start It s a powerful ritual to officially signal the beginning of a new season in your life Some five sensory people think rituals are pagan and ridiculous I prefer to see them as artful and creative as they speak to our spirit the non intellectual part of us I have done rituals all my life and I can absolutely assure you they work To do a green fire ritual you ll need a box of Epsom salts a bottle of rubbing alcohol a deep pot and a match Next before you make the fire write down all that you desire to mentally and emotionally release Now you can begin Line the bottom of the pot with foil to protect it then fill it with two cups of Epsom salts Pour enough rubbing alcohol over the salts to fully cover it Place the pot on a protective plate in the middle of the floor of the main room of your house apart from anything that can catch on fire If you have a fireplace put it there As you light the mixture ask your Higher Self angels and guides to help you release all old and negative vibrations leaving your space free and clear of any unwanted energy Place the list of old vibrations in the fire It usually takes about ten or 15 minutes for the fire to burn

    off her comment and suggested we do something at her house instead From then on I realized that the rich world of spirit from which I drew such comfort was virtually unknown to most people around me Over time I ve also come to believe our disconnection from the spirit world is a Western soul disease in which industrialization and intellectualism have snatched us from our hearts the place we meet and commune with spirit and planted as squarely in our heads the place where our egos reign over us with threats of isolation and annihilation I believe disconnecting from the spirit world and your inner guidance is an energetic disturbance that is much like being a radio dial drifting from its desired station You begin to tune into a lot of static instead and get confused and lost The good news is that whatever the reason for the separation with a little effort you can reset your inner dial back to your heart and reconnect once again To begin it s important to understand what you can expect to tune into when you join with your spirit guides You see there are many levels of spirit guides and non physical entities and energies in the spirit world all vibrating on their unique frequencies much like multiple radio stations simultaneously sending out unique signals Each guide has its own frequency some higher then others We also have our own frequency and vibration Those of us who remember we are spiritual beings live in our hearts and have a high vibration not too distant from the spiritual frequencies of those in the non physical plane making connection with spirit guides easier Those of us who have forgotten we are spiritual beings and identify with our minds and bodies have a lower vibration further on the frequency range from spirit guides so the connection is much more difficult to establish This is why some people are more aware of guides than others Because we are all physical and non physical alike our energy being in vibrational motion we can be characterized as different radio bands broadcasting at different levels The higher our vibration the greater the connection we can make with our spirit guides There are many kinds of guidance with which we can connect guides who are people who have once lived guides of past family members guides from past lives you ve shared guides who come in as spiritual teachers to oversee your path healers who can assist your physical and emotional care helpers who make day to day living easier nature spirits and elementals to connect you with the earth animal spirits to guide your path even joy guides to keep your own spirits up when life becomes too heavy and hard There are angels saints divas masters and God In fact the spirit world is as populated as ours myriad different guides working on different frequencies all the time Because every thing in the Universe is spirit vibrating
