It's not an easy job being a human. But for those who decide to go big and step into our full potential in this lifetime, it's through the chaos and challenges that our true nature is revealed—the beauty, wisdom and limitless possibilities of our being are cracked open.
From a spiritual perspective, highly sensitive people came here to do just this, as did all humans—and feel it all even more intensely because, well they have a big mission on the planet. We must go against the grain a little bit in order to teach by example; we do this by honoring our bodies, minds and souls with foods, relationships and work that nourish us. This is something that's foreign to most people on the planet right now, but health and happiness is our birthright and we all need to take responsibility to lead the way back to balance and harmony.
When life's challenges finally brought me to my knees, I aligned with my spiritual path and an awakening to the larger part of myself that I never fully understood or honored. The adventure of harnessing my superpowers began, and miracles I never thought possible became my daily experience.
My mission is to inspire you, uplift you, and give you the tools to move from a space of feeling like a victim of your circumstance, moving beyond a label and separation and into a place of empowerment.
Every human needs these tools and deserves to feel a deep sense of love and belonging—and most don't—highly sensitive or not.
1. Connect with yourself.
Create a daily practice to cultivate self-love. Prayer and meditation is the act of asking for loving perceptions and then listening to the guidance you receive in meditation and throughout the day when you're slowing down and being present. When we choose self-love and listen to our inner guiding system, it will never steer us wrong. The more you trust yourself and act from this aligned place, the more miracles you'll experience; life will start to flow and struggle will release.
2. Clean up your side of the street.
Do the inner work and purify thoughts and limiting beliefs that no longer serve you. Get honest with yourself about the stories your ego has been telling you, making you feel separate, small, or unworthy. Begin to have the willingness to see things differently. What we believe in, we create, so begin to believe in your fairytale so you can create your happy dream.
No one else is responsible for our happiness and no one else is to blame for our unhappiness. Begin to differentiate between what's yours and what's someone else's so you're not taking on everyone else's emotions. We are only serving if it's from a place of joy—never a place of sacrifice.
3. Spend time with those who see your light.
As we release old ideas and come into a space of self-love, we let go of those who are not aligned with who we really are and attract new relationships that support and nourish us. Being with people who see our light is deeply healing and fulfilling. There is never a situation that we're meant to compromise our happiness in order to please others. Create healthy boundaries and honor your inner guiding system that knows what's best for you by walking away or saying no when it's best.
4. Eat right.
Detox from toxic foods and drinks to clear the blocks to stronger focus and clarity and move to a clean, plant-based diet. We don't usually connect food with intuition, but when we clear out the sugar, alcohol, caffeine and other stimulants, we are able to connect with our intuition on a higher level, allowing us to make even more healthy life changes and live a life of empowerment.
5. Get grounded.
Sometimes because it's difficult being here, we want to float away. It's important to remember that we chose to be here on a soul level and to experience everything that life has given us. Making the commitment to being here on the planet to fulfill our mission is important. A simple meditation once or twice a day with a visual of dropping a chord from your heart center down into the heart center of the earth, is a great first step to grounding more.
6. Practice shielding.
This one might feel a little more esoteric, but a daily shielding technique is very helpful before leaving your home or entering social situations. It looks like a short meditation: close your eyes and bring in a vision of pure white light from the crown of your head and out through your heart, surrounding your entire body. Do this until you feel completely enveloped in the warm, white light. Set the intention to allow only loving energy to flow your way and to flow from you to everyone else who needs this healing energy.
7. Flex your superpowers.
Harness your natural psychic abilities which is any moment you feel something is going to happen, or you know what someone is thinking or feeling without them telling you, by paying attention and trusting it. The more you recognize these moments as real, the more power you give them, and the more you strengthen your personal divine gifts in this world, given to you to bring more love and anchor it on the planet.
8. Celebrate life every day. You feel so much because you are alive.
Being numb, bored, dull, and blocked is not what we came here to do! To have the capacity to feel the gamut of human emotions is a gift and one that allows us to fully be in this human experience. How we show up in the world is our choice and we can choose to suffer or we can choose to be happy.
