Creative energy sparks life. It stimulates new inventions, inspirations and lights the fire of sexual attraction. When it is blocked life loses its luster.

Your creative energy is a precursor to everything you bring into physical form, from your home, to your relationships, to your financial prosperity.

When I hear clients say, “I feel blocked!” or “I’m not creative.” The first place I look is the second chakra. In the body, this energy center is just below the belly button, where you feel empathy, creative and sexual energy.

Creative energy blocks undermine your happiness and your sense of purpose because you ARE a creator and if you aren’t creating, you are not fully sparkling. You were born naturally knowing how to run creative energy, it is part of your true soul essence.

Is it time to reclaim your creative or sexual spark? You can remove energy blocks by identifying what is in the way, then clearing it from your energy field. Here’s a list of common energy blocks followed by an exercise to help you release blocked energy and reclaim your creative and sexual energy:

  • Perfection – Healthy attention to the detail is necessary to create life in the process procreation. But if perfection is focused on your body, a relationship or what you are creating, it becomes a limitation, an impossible achievement. Like an unforgiving judge it is a gatekeeper that stops creative energy from flowing.

  • Control – Are there rules that control what you have permission to create? For example, can you create money but not art or art but not money. Control limits what you are allowed to create.

  • Wounds – Your creative flow can be wounded by an energetic whack, such as being told you’re not sexy, too sexual or not sexual in the ways that a partner wants. Or by betrayal, sexual abuse, loss of a child, infertility, having your creative ideas belittled or ignored.

  • Shame – Shame is taught or projected onto you then becomes internalized as a form of self-punishment. Making your creative or sexual nature wrong. Shame drains your creative energy, so it can’t turn into a real-world manifestation.

  • Possessiveness – Some sexual partners put possessive hooks in others second chakra, demanding that they only create with them and no one else. Even if they are no longer with the person.

For the meditation exercise, pick one or more of these second chakra blocks that you would like to clear. Then follow the steps below. You may find you need to repeat this practice several times if the block has been with you a long time or is charged with emotion.

Exercise: Remove Energy Blocks

Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths, inviting oxygen all the way down to below your belly button, your second chakra where you hold your creative energy.

In your mind’s eye, imagine a yellow rose directly in front of you.

Ask the rose to magnetically attract any energy in your second chakra that is blocking your creations, known or unknown to you. Specifically name the wound, control, shame, perfection or possessiveness you want to clear. See the story and limitation move out of your body into the yellow rose.

When the rose has absorbed all the blocked energy, see yourself reach out to grab it by the stem, then toss it up into the sky and watch it evaporate. Clearing out all that was blocking your creative essence.

Now imagine that you have a bright blue bubble above your head. It is singing in a beautiful voice — calling to you the most vibrant, juicy creative energy that you have ever felt. As the bubble fills, see it swirl a hologram of infinite creative possibility. Then watch the bubble of sparkling creative energy drop into the top of your head and move down through your body until it fills up your second chakra.

Take a deep breath — inviting oxygen all the way down into your creative belly.

When you open your eyes, know that you have the power to shine your true creative essence.

One of my favorite college professors had a theory of three human flaws. Prof. Lawrence asked us to watch for these flaws in the news and when we got into the workforce. His hope was that we would recognize them and do what we could to counter balance them in the World. They are:

  1. Greed
  2. Incompetence
  3. Tendency to Abuse Power

As a lightworker, abuse of power is a pattern I see clients suffering at the hands of every day. From the soul perspective, your energy — what you focus it on and how you exchange it — is your power. You can trade our energy for a pay check or collaborative exchanges in relationship. When the energy is taken without an equal exchange, it is abuse of power.

There is a lot that drives the tendency to abuse power. This plays out dramatically on the World screen. People’s fear that they don’t have enough, competition for resources. Desire to be in control. Ego’s need to dominate. Belief in being better than or more entitled than someone else.

Beneath the behaviors and beliefs is an energetic vacuum. What allows me to have compassion or at least neutrality for a person who abuses power at home or in the workplace – a taker, a user or energy vampire – is the awareness that they don’t know how to generate their own energy. Compassion doesn’t equate to tolerance.

Protecting yourself from energy abuse is the most important thing you can do to stay aligned with your soul path. Most common and subtly are the energy hooks and vampirism that happen between the closest people in your life: friends, life-partners, family members, co-workers.

When you have an energy leak or full on vampire impacting you, it undermines your ability to manifest your intentions into a physical form. You may have a great idea, feel its creative energy but then it doesn’t have enough oomph behind it to get traction.

Abuse of power can leave you feeling exhausted, confused, even guilty for saying no. So how do you stop these energy losses and re-balance your life?

Regular practices that set your energy field / aura with healthy boundaries, make you less susceptible to abuse of power. Use your intuition and meditation tools. Being conscious of your soul contracts with the people in your life and updating them to “only available for equal energy exchange” is a step in healing abusive relationships. Clear generational patterns, and programs that allow the abuse of power to hook you. And maybe most important, fill your energetic cup through practices that don’t take energy from others.

Oddly some of the most powerful people in the world are hooking into those around them and using that energy to be powerful. When energy is voluntary given it can support co-creation, a cause or belief system. This is free will. When the energy is being hooked, vampired or taken through dishonest means it is an abuse of power.

Pay attention to where you feel more energy going out that is offered in relationships. Trust your intuition to show you where energy is out of balance, even in the broader world community. Commit to the practices that support your energy exchanges staying in balance.

October 9 I’m starting a LIVE practice group. In our first session I’ll teach a tool for reclaiming your power and we’ll practice it together.

Things have been getting pretty wacky in the world, asking you to trust your intuition more than ever. Do you feel a bit dazed by the blatant lies bouncing around as the new norm?

Partial information, misleading statements and fear-based perspectives are twisting reality. And not in a good way. How can you listen to your intuition when you are constantly navigating messages that tell you to doubt it? You may find yourself wanting to tune it out or feel outraged and exhausted.

If you’ve been feeling uncertainty or doubt about an action you want to take, a decision, or whether something you’ve heard is the truth, it is likely that someone else’s energy is in your space – whether it be an individual or the collective energy.

To keep your inner-guidance from falling prey to the chronic societal conditioning or manipulation it encounters over and over again, it is important to clear other people’s ideas and energy out of your space. Highly sensitive people need to do this often.

Here are THREE quick steps you can take to stay tuned-in instead of tuned-out. You will increase your intuition through meditations like these and feel more clarity too:

ONE) Clear out collective fear, negativity and victim-hood from your energy field. Visualize a vacuum with its dirt bag /canister outside of your aura bubble.  See the vacuum tube suction up all the negative collective energy in your body – energy from the world, your country, your community, your school/job, your household. Once the bag is full, take it out of the canister and send it to Source for a healing.

TWO) Reclaim your center-of-head from everyone– hanging out in there who wants to “see what you see” OR holding telepathic conversations with you OR demanding your attention OR controlling your options. Whether it’s a boss, loved one or ex, they need to give you space. Imagine their energy going into a bubble. Send that bubble back to them and pop it. This makes room in your sixth chakra where you have intuitive insights.

THREE) Call your energy back to you! YOU ARE YOUR BEST MEDICINE! Intend that your energy – by that I mean, your souls essence and your attention – comes back to you from wherever it has been, with a person, place, project, in the past or in the future. Imagine it flowing back to you like a river of sweet golden honey and filling you up, from the top of your head to the tips of your toes.

Can you trust your intuition when it’s under the influence of the fears or needs of other people? Not so much. So do a visualization to clear others energy out of your space and fill-up with your soul’s essence. Then you are able to see clearly, trust your intuition and take the pathway that is in your soul’s highest good.

Can you tell me a story of when synchronicity changed your life? You ran into the right person at the right time. You learned about something that led to a new job, passion or relationship. You were following your inner-guidance with courage and some trepidation, when support you would have never imagined showed up along the way.

Synchronicity, in the spiritual sense, is the way your inner-guidance shows you that you are on the right path or helps you get back on that path if you’ve taken a detour. The thing that can be challenging about this sort of magic is allowing enough flexibility in your life to listen, adjust and say yes to the guidance.

In 2000, I decided to go to a writing retreat not far from home in Grand Lake Colorado, it was a last-minute decision because I didn’t have a lot of money. I was questioning many parts of my life, self-employed as an artist, having just turned 30. The retreat was at a hostel and our group mostly filled it up but there were a few other travelers staying there.

One of the travelers was a man from the Netherlands, Philippe who had been hiking through Rocky Mountain National Park. He had planned to hike a loop back to his starting point but twisted his ankle and needed to exit the opposite side of the park to get a ride back to Denver. I was enjoying the discussion in the common area with the travelers when we met.

The next morning at breakfast we had a great conversation. He was getting a ride to Denver. An older woman in the writing group had been engaged in the conversation at our table. When he offered her his business card she turned around and handed it to me. She said, “Actually, I think this young lady needs it.”

After the writing retreat I went home, got an office job and ended my live-in relationship. I was listening to my guidance. A few months later I ran across Philippe’s card when I was cleaning my desk and sent him an email. We became email friends, it was before social media existed. A couple years later he came to Colorado and we climbed Mount Bierstadt together. Four years after we met, he came to visit again and we fell in love.

We had a magical and challenging time together, as many long-distance relationships go, that require one person to move countries. We loved deep and taught each other many things while together. The synchronicity and karmic connection we experienced was profound and wonderful. Each of us listening to our inner guidance lead our paths in different directions after a few years. If I hadn’t made room for synchronicity I might have missed this amazing experience.

Making plans creates the structure of your life and allows you to get many things done in a concentrated amount of time. Stuff that might not happen if there were no plans. Yet too many plans or chronic busyness can block your inner-guidance, make you overlook the synchronicity altogether or not have time for it when it shows up.

Listening to our inner-guidance and being open to synchronicity isn’t always comfortable. We might hear something that means we need to change in a way that is scary or unsettling. But living without listening is not living at all. It’s getting caught in a current that is not taking you where your soul wants you to go.

When you know what you’re capable of but can’t do it. When you have the mental, emotional, and physical skills but are drawing a blank. You are experiencing suppression energy. The spirit of suppression wants to separate you from your capable, powerful, Self.  It makes what’s possible seem impossible. It undermines the impact of your actions. It keeps you stuck, frozen, a spectator as things go wrong and get weird.

The spirit of suppression is not new to humanity. It has worked among our ranks for as long as we have been on the planet. It feeds on the concept of separateness, egoic specialness, differences rather than oneness. It likes to use race, gender, wealth and intelligence to define these differences. It benefits from access to power.

This spirit of suppression I refer to is actually “entity” or “being,” a soul without a body. Harmful entities like this can attach to a person, use the hosts energy to impact other people one at a time.

Suppression entities operate differently. Rather than one at a time, they radiate a blanket of energy impacting as many people as the host can access. The more power the host gains, the broader the swath of suppression.

In its host, the suppressor feeds the hunger for power, fosters a belief that they are right and know better than everyone else. It shrouds truth that might undermine it and lays a lead blanket over those who do not support its agenda. Its agenda is to take energy from many and use the energy to permanently keep them marginalized. Supporters of the entity’s agenda expand its impact by feeding it broader influence.

Here are 3 Steps to Protect Your Energy from a Suppressor Entity:

  1. Name what is draining your energy (this puts the entity on notice that you see it)
  2. Activate your boundaries with this visualization:
    • Paint your aura bubble electric blue
    • Create a new grounding cord (tree trunk from the base of your spine into the earth)
    • Put protection roses around you in all directions (front, behind, right, left, above, below)
  3. Imagine a gauge showing you the percentage of suppression energy impacting you, move the gauge a distance away from you, give it a grounding cord and watch the suppression energy drain out of the gauge through the grounding cord until the percentage is at zero.

Because a suppressor being can hook into many souls at one time, breaking its hold often takes support. On a small scale such as a neighbor or co-worker who hosts a suppressor entity, use the tools above. If it’s having a serious personal impact, get the help of an energy healer to shield you from further suppression.

On the collective scale, such as when a world leader is hosting a suppression entity, it feels like the dragon of suppression is blowing smoke out of his nostrils distorting our collective sight. The dense acid fumes are poisoning access to our collective mind. Its tar like excrement is stuck to our collective feet, limiting movement. Fire spit out of the dragon’s mouth grips our collective heart, as it burns all that we value before our eyes.

Breaking the spell of a suppression entity that has gained that much power requires gathering those with collective consciousness to name it, claim seniority over the entity and break its hold. Our strength is amplified in creating an intentional grid with high vibration to dissolve the suppression. Humanity has beat suppressor entities many times. They cause a lot of suffering so the sooner we name, claim and clear a suppressor the better for us all!

Over and over life presents us with unexpected opportunities that stretch our comfort zone. There really is no such thing as getting comfortable unless you avoid contact with others. Even nature brings experiences that affect your energy and require shifts to plans. Ultimately, we all desire to stay centered and be at peace regardless of what happens in our life.

From the energy perspective, you have peace when you have graceful boundaries with the people in your life, feel grounded, refill your energy regularly and have balanced exchanges with others.

Sounds simple, but as far as I can tell it’s the most complex part of being a soul in a human body.

People want more than you have to give at times. Their fears or trauma get triggered, so they grab on to you to ground and regain their balance. It can really throw you off. They make mistakes that impact you. Or you make a choice that has unexpected consequences. Having something unexpected rock your world, including someone who brings destabilizing energy, is like getting caught in a storm.

You’re on a hike in the mountains on a sunny day. You feel at peace.

Thunder rolls in the distance. Your inner-voice says, “I know this one. Got it. No problem.”

Lightening ripples across looming dark clouds you see beyond blue sky. Do you feel at peace now?

Hair stands up on your arms as the storm moves your way. Your inner-voice is like, “Maybe it’s a good idea for me to change my plan, turn around, move to lower ground, seek shelter?”

Do you feel at peace now?

Lightening is hitting the high points. Torrents of rain are pelting down. You didn’t bring a rain jacket. Your inner-voice is running through all sorts of possible bad scenarios laced with criticism, “You know better. You didn’t tell anyone where you were hiking. You didn’t come prepared. Your intuition nudged you to turn around. If you had, you would be back to your car by now.”

Your drenched, tiny hail pelting your skin. Thankfully the lightening has passed. But not the self-critical voice. Your energy was thrown off. How do you regain your peace?

Life happens. Your peace will be tested over and over again. Sometimes it will be due to a choice you made that has consequences you didn’t expect. Sometimes it will be others energy that impacts you and requires some work to reclaim your peace.

When something is stealing your peace, its most important to return to the basics (see diagram).

  1. Visualize your grounding cord. A fresh one, deeply rooted in the earth. (RED ARROW)
  2. Reset your aura bubble. This is me. That is you. We can love each other, have compassion, help each other and NOT be IN each other’s bubble. (BLUE CIRCLE)
  3. Call your energy back to you. Imagine it coming from the person or situation that your peace was lost to, pouring back in to fill you up through the top of your head. (GOLD SUN & ARROW)

The tests to your peace will come. That’s a guarantee. But you always have the power to reclaim your peace by reclaiming your energy.

You are born with a bunch of DNA that gives your cells the building blueprint for your body. DNA is like an architectural plan for the building that is your body, from conception to death. As a soul entering your family, biological or adoptive, you inherit more than the DNA that has survived and evolved for thousands of years. You get a broad array of deeply impactful and mostly unconscious soul vows, beliefs and programming. This is your spiritual genetic inheritance.

While you can influence your health and appearance, your DNA is set or life. That’s not true for your spiritual genetic inheritance. You have come into your family line to help it evolve what no longer works genetically and you have the opportunity to heal aspects of your spiritual genetic inheritance.

For example, your mother’s mother may have been told or had the experience that she needed to “earn her keep.” That merely shining her unique soul light wasn’t enough to illicit the approval or love of her family. To navigate life, she created a belief that she had to over-give to be worthy of approval. Never sitting down to the dinner table while the rest of the family ate, often feeling depleted, forever giving, and uncomfortable receiving.

This belief became part of the spiritual DNA she passed down to her children, that they then passed down to their children. Is it true that she wasn’t enough as her unique soul light? No. But she believed it because those who birthed her into the world taught her through their behaviors and responses.

Her experience became a part of her decedent’s spiritual genetic inheritance, rather than simply a learned behavior, because it made an unconscious imprint on the soul memory bank. An unresolved experience, that she spent her whole life seeking to resolve through over giving.

Another form of spiritual inheritance is a soul vow with another being. When an ancestor makes an agreement with a spiritual entity, helpful or harmful, or allows one into their space these entities can get passed down for generations.

Two hundred years ago, your ancestor may have grown up in a physically abusive home. He felt pain a lot and didn’t like the way it felt. So, he called out for help, “I don’t want to feel this pain.”  This created an agreement with a protective entity that helped him not feel the pain. Something he needed for survival. At the time it was helpful. As an adult, he could have said, “thank you, I don’t need your protection from pain anymore.” And ended the soul vow with that entity, allowing himself to feel a full spectrum.

Because he kept the agreement and felt it was necessary to safely navigate life, he passed this soul vow down to the next generation. In the next generation, it may have taken the form of blocking that person from their heart, making it hard for them to feel connection or driven the person to abuse alcohol to avoid feeling. The entities job was to block feeling pain and it continued doing its job.

Your soul continuously seeks to resolve that which has been left unresolved by repeating the experience until it is resolved. Even if that experience was not your experience but one of your ancestors. The unresolved spiritual DNA of your ancestors needs to be released so you can be more fully aligned with your soul. The same is true for our soul vows with entities that are inter-generational. Are they helpful, or is it time to end the agreement? You probably have another way to navigate life that is more fulfilling or peaceful than their presence allows you.

When the day-to-day feels lacking. When you’ve got what you wanted but it doesn’t satisfy. What you want feels unclear or impossibly out of reach. When you wonder what is required to make you feel alive, at peace, purposeful… it is time for ritual.

I believe much of the lack and disappointment we feel, even in the midst of prosperity, is because we are missing ways to honor our sacred life. For thousands of years humans have marked transitions, acknowledged seasons, expressed gratitude, and made symbolic gestures to the Universe to make their desires known. Ritual honors the sacred aspects of life. We have forgot our rituals. And we are suffering for it.

Sure, we have holidays, take vacations, make lists of our goals, and celebrate what we have accomplished. But ritual is deeper. It is not about doing and achieving, rather connection, fulfillment and being on your path. The process of ritual requires getting clear, asking for what you want, while holding the possibility of it in your heart, before it happens.

Rituals provide the container to align all aspects of your Self with intention: mind, body, heart and spirit. When you invoke ritual, you make a choice with your mind, take action with your body, feel the gratitude and desire with your heart and align with your soul purpose.

Conversations with the Universe aren’t as common in our time but they are just as essential to thriving. A ritual is a conversation with the Universe. It is a way to express yourself that doesn’t require words.

You may dance your ritual, bathe as a ritual, sit under a starry sky and ask for guidance as a ritual. You may create an altar of pine cones, rocks and feathers, plant seeds or allow your tears to fall into a river. You may wrap your shoulders with a blanket, imagine being held by the Universe, or hike to a mountain top and sing your heart out.

In all of these you are honoring your desire with intention and sacred process.

Rituals don’t cost money or require elaborate performance. They are from the heart. Feeling alive, at peace and purposeful, require an investment in your sacred life. Ritual is a powerful way to honor and infuse this sacredness into everything you do.

For a place to start in creating your ritual, use my 3 Day Ritual guideline (download FREE here). This tool will help you create space, hold space and manifest your intentions. When planning your ritual, consider the best timing, ask for support from the Universe and someone you trust.

There is a place between light and dark, between clear and foggy, where you can see a parallel World. When I drive down the curvy forest road to where I grew up, in the coastal mountains of Oregon, I often feel the Mists. That in-between place, where Spirit is very present and reality bends in a way that makes our human concerns seem less relevant.

I find that place expansive, mystical, alluring. And while I don’t want to spend all of my time there, I like going there because it reminds me what I pretend is so important, this life, is actually just a blink in cosmic time. In the Mists, I might meet a long-lost love or feel free to talk with angels and animals.

We all are seeking reason to give our life meaning. Some do this by having children, a family. Continuing life, witnessing the innocence in a child. Some through dedicating to their work. Others in exploring the World or their inner world.

The Mists are where you get to discover the “why”. What you are here for. What gives you purpose.

It’s much simpler than you’d like to imagine. Yes, even simpler than pro-creation, success, or discovery. What gives you purpose is choice. Without choice you would be nothing but a clone, repeating that which those before have lived.

You have choice. Choice is your magic gateway.

You’ll find the Mists in magical moments when you are driving down the road or hiking to a hilltop. While you may not be able to see far ahead, you can see deep and wide from your soul’s perspective. In the Mists, you witness another dimension of reality. You realize that many of the things you fill your time with don’t really matter. What matters is that you are a soul in this fractal of time and you get to choose. You choose what souls you dance with, what dreams you make real.

Certainly, you have a unique reason for being alive right now, beyond choice. But your choice is the place you start to truly live. The Mists, when you are open to entering them, will let you see your dharma, what your soul work is in this lifetime.

You can’t force the gateway to open. The window between Worlds opens at Divine timing, and only when you are willing to see. It could be you’ve driven down that road 1000 times and the Mists never opened for you.

Call out for the opening. Request it, look for it, choose it. There’s no time like the present. Why wait? Life is here to be lived. Magic is waiting to happen.

Your energy is your power. When your energy is gathered, like drops of water in a river, its power is amplified. You choose to give your energy to the people you love, the causes you support, the work that allows you to live. And at times you may find yourself feeling unfocused or drained.

Imbalances of energy exchange are energy leaks. They occur when you work or live with an energy vampire. When you are helping ground someone who is ungrounded. When you have been programmed to believe that your power is too much. When you chronically give more than you receive. When you are raised to not have permission to say no.

If you are dealing with someone who always wants more from you. They don’t know how to regenerate their own energy so they hook into the energy of others. At work this could be a manager that sets unreasonable deadlines, creates destabilizing drama or micro-managing busywork. At home this may be a family member who always has demands, is angry or interrupts what you are doing to make you focus on their agenda. They may play victim or use guilt to hook you and use your energy.

“Energy is the driving force for the universe… One form of energy can be transferred to another form.” Scientific Principles

This science is true for human energy as well as energy held in the earth elements. You have the opportunity to focus the transfer of your energy in a way that is fulfilling by shoring up your energy leaks. As you become conscious of how your energy is being used you can stop the leaks and create more balanced energy exchanges.

The most effective way to stop energy leaks is regularly practicing Active Meditation (more info). In this practice you visualize your energy field (aura), reset your chakras, create a new grounding cord and call your energy back to yourself (video example). Defining what is you and what is not you, energetically through this process, is key to dissolving the hooks from energy vampires too. When you own all of your energy, by being aware of how you are sharing it in the world, it is harder for people to take it from you without your agreement.

Your energy is your power. It took you a lifetime to develop how you share your energy, so be patient with the time it takes to break the habits that lead to energy leaks. Each energy leak you stop gives you more focus and fulfillment in your life.
