My Temezcal Experience – Tulum, MX

The reasons that places from all over the world draw me in is due to their beauty and unique spiritual experiences. That’s what this Travel + Spirit blog is all about! Tulum is full of spiritual experiences, but the one that stood out to me tremendously was a spiritual endeavor called Temezcal.

Temezcal is an experience that takes place in a stone igloo with a small door that you have to crawl into on your knees, symbolizing reentering the womb of Mother Earth. Before you enter, you must be cleansed, using the smoke of copal (a incense like sap, used by the Maya) as well as set an intention for the experience.

Usually these experiences can have up to 15-20 people, but can get as small as a personal or private experience as well. My experience was at Holistika and had 15 people with plenty of space for us all. Everyone sits inside the igloo, including the Shaman as he introduces how the experience will go.

There are four doors of the Temezcal, representing the four elements. Each door is focused on a different type of healing and each door gets hotter than the last. Our Shaman was very calm and light hearted, reassuring us what was normal to feel and what was not, but also letting us all know that we cannot be denied to leave if we want to leave the experience.

After everyone is ready, we started greeting in ancient lava stones from the central Mexico and greeting them as our abuelitas (ancestors). This is tradition for Temezcal in Mexico because the Mexican cultures honors Mother Earth as ancient and wise, having lived through so much, they know so much (just like our ancestors). The water here from cenotes and the ocean is often referred to in this way and I believe it to be so beautiful.

Each lava rock is greeted into the Temezcal, into the fire pit in the middle of the igloo and afterwards our Shaman informed us and comforted us about the experience we are about to have before we declare we are ready for the journey in the first door.

“Abuelito puerto!” we all chanted as the door to the igloo closes and we enter the first door. It is pure darkness, the darkest experience you could ever have. You can’t see your hand in front of your face or know the difference between your eyes open or close.

I didn’t know that this would make my heart race, just the simple darkness, but it did. What I loved about this was that even though there were others in the igloo with me, it was truly an internal experience within your Soul. No one can see you chanting, moving, shaking… and most of all sweating your ass off.

Now every Temezcal is very different, but for this experience, the first door was about expression. Many were shouting, making animalistic noises, yelling or crying. For myself, I was in a very good place in my journey and found myself smiling and laughing. The experience is to let go of trapped emotions within the body through expression and detoxifying it through your pores. I found here that maybe what I needed to express more was pure joy and happiness.

Each door was about 15 minutes long before we opened the door to let the light in and took about five minutes to process the journey with ourselves and/or our Shaman. They brought in more lava rocks and poured more herbs and water onto them before we then entered the next door with “abuelito Puerto” once again.

Each door had a different journey that increased in temperature and difficulty and it was not abnormal for a few people to leave. For me, it felt hard to breathe, it felt like I wasn’t getting oxygen because of the heat, although I was. I also felt a pain in my chest. This was an experience another person had that the Shaman provided insight on.

He asked if we had any heart problems. Answer being no, he then proceeded to ask how our relationship was with certain people in our lives until it was pinpointed. For me, it was much relationship healing to be had with my parents. He described this as a heart chakra blockage, as our bodies are releasing our stuck emotions physically and emotionally and the heart is having a heart time releasing.

This made so much sense to me that afterward provided a whole new perspective within the relationship with my family.

When we put out bodies into uncomfortable situations, such as breath work, ice baths or Temezcal, our mind goes into a place of feeling like it’s unsafe. In this case, that you will die from dehydration (although you drink water beforehand and have water to drink during if you’d like). When this happens, our subconscious mind attaches to stored emotions and traumas in the body to signal to our conscious mind that we are not safe. This is how these experiences can heal trapped subconscious traumas by diving deep into the body and mind and releasing them through expression, sweat, movement and any other way your body decides to release it during this experience.

The last door was focused on new affirmations to bring to life when we are reborn out of the womb of Mother Earth. Out of pure darkness, people took turns saying affirmations that they wanted to bring to life when they are born again and everyone else would repeat them.

It was such a powerful way to end the experience.

When the door opened, we closed our experience by coming out of the igloo one by one. Once again, because the door is low, you have to crawl out. We prayed in front of the door, affirming they we were reborn before leaving the igloo. And man, even the humid heat of Mexico felt nice after that!

Afterwards, we each took a turn speaking about our experience to the group and throwing some copal into the fire to gather and close off the expansive experience.

I must say… I absolutely loved it! I highly recommend anyone looking to challenge their body and minds. You may even think you have nothing to release, but you will find it stored deep in your mind and you truly feel reborn afterwards. It is nothing to enter into lightly, it is a difficult experience but I promise you can do it and it will be worth every drop of sweat.

How the moon affects us | A simple guide

Moon Sunset

It’s easy to get lost in all sorts of research and techniques as to how the moon affects our energetic beings. Something I dive deep into inside my Moon Manifestation Course. But you would be surprised how much you can understand the lunar phases by having knowledge of some core simple things about the moon.

First of all, the moon is one of the planets that a zodiac can also be ruled by, along with all the other planets, each with their own energetic meanings. The moon, in particular, relates to your emotions. So a zodiac that is ruled by the moon, such as a Cancer, can be a really emotional sign.

So as the moon effects our emotions, wherever the moon shows up on your natal chart, it will relate to your emotions. Everything going on in the cosmos and how other planets are aligned with the moon, will affect our emotions in that coordinating way. So if you would like to dive deeper into exactly how the moon effects your emotions, specific to your zodiac, you can do some research or have a reading of your own to discover this. I personally recommend The Chariot, they do online readings as well via Zoom.

But to make this a lot more simple, I like to relate the moon as an energetic pull from our own energetic being. So when the moon is new (all black) this is a time where we may have less energy, and with less energy, we may have a nostalgic feel of wanting to rid yourself of any feelings/behaviors or energies that are not serving you and begin a new phase for transformation.

This is why I begin my Moon Manifestation Course with setting new intentions with the new moon!

As the moon begins to light up, think of the light of the moon being an energetic tug, as during the waxing phases of the moon, our energy is being pulled. This is exactly why this two week time frame is perfect for achieving new goals and intentions that you intended during the new moon. (Exactly what we do inside this two week course – MMC).

[tp_cheapest_flights_shortcodes origin=”SEA” destination=”CUN” subid=”direction” off_title=”false” currency=”USD” paginate=”false”]

If we are aligned with this intention and conscious with the energy of the moon, we can accelerate our manifestations with the energy of the moon and allow in the intuitive guidance along the way. Simply being conscious of this energy is also a way you can sync your cycles with the lunar phases of death and rebirth.

When we hit the full moon, I recommend spending your energy doing things that light you up, things of creativity and passion. If your an artist, paint. If your a writer, write. If your a musician, play music. Ect. This is because our intuitive guidance is heightened, as is our energetic connection to the cosmos. This is also the perfect time to meditate.

This is also a time of reflection, this is due to the heightened effects of the subconscious. The full moon tends to bring the subconscious mind forward. So any feelings or thoughts that you may have laid dormant, will come up during this time. This is because if it is an energy that is out of alignment with our truest selves, the intuition will try to “remind” you that it needs to be addressed and healed.

I believe this is why the night of the full moon is usually a night full of crazy happenings, bad or good… it depends on what’s going on in your subconscious mind.

The next phases of the moon are the waning phases, these phases (the next two weeks) are meant for rest. I recommend spending this time for self love, possibly some more reflection towards the subconscious thoughts and energies that came through on the full moon. Or the goals you set and how far you came with them so that you can intend something new for the upcoming new moon.

These phases are very important… rest is very important. If you feel resistant towards resting and still have an overactive mind that feels guilty for standing still… than this is another indication of energetic misalignment. The rest is particularly important to establish feelings of worthiness for your desires, regardless of the action. And this rest gives an energy of ALLOWING your manifestations to come.

You may find more intuitive downloads coming in during this time, if you allow yourself to rest. Downloads that will open up the doors towards the next intention to manifest throughout the next lunar phases ahead. πŸ™‚

I hope you enjoyed this ritual and I have actually created a free Manifesting with the Moon 101 Guide so you can take the energy of the new moon beyond just this phase for aligning your manifestations with the lunar phases. You can get this free workbook here.

Full Moon Cacao Ritual

The full moon is a spectacular time, known to bring out our deep emotions that we may be not allowing to release. You may find yourself feeling reflective and emotional, depending on the alignment of this full moon cycle.

The full moon brings about energy of all sorts, it can bring your subconscious thoughts forward as well as your creative energy. Because of this, a full moon can bring about violence as well as amazing creative works.

This time is the perfect time to use your energy to dive deep, take time for self-love and do the things you are passionate about. You may find yourself creating your best creative work, coming up with new ideas or simply connecting with your spirit on a deeper level.

100% cacao is spiritually known to increase your connection to the Self, open up the heart chakra and aid in releasing old negative stories.

So here is a cacao ritual you can participate in on this full moon and enhance your spiritual growth.


What you will need

– 100% cacao (powder or pure chocolate work. You can eat or mix into a drink.)

– Audio for sound healing (computer, phone, singing bowl, gong, ect.)

– A comfortable, secluded space to lie down + meditate.

– Optional – Incense, candles, sage or palo santo


Full Moon Cacao Ritual

Play an meditative audio to enhance your ritual, you can choose one of your own, Youtube is a great resource, or you can take a look at my spiritual playlist here.

Simple Meditation –

Sit down in a quiet space where you can be undisturbed to participate in your ritual. If you have sage or palo santo, cleanse your space of previous negative energy to instill a positive radiance into your space.

Do a simple, silent meditation to still the mind. Simply close your eyes and focus on your breath, breathe deeply and imagine you are releasing all negative patterns with every exhale and inhaling all the positive radiance that you have intentionally instilled into your aura.

Breathe in this positive light and let it fill up your body, allow your spirit to radiate. You may feel a tingling throughout your body, breathe in more of that beautiful energy and now you have released ALL negative remaining energy + stilled the mind.


Going Deeper Into The Mind, Meditation –

Now that you have instilled this new energy and cleared the mind. Next, focus your energy on the cacao ceremony you are about to embark in. Set your intention for this ceremony.

What answers are you looking for? Guidance, peace, self-love, understanding, release? Let your mind understand what it will be focusing it’s energy towards during this ceremony and tell your subconscious mind exactly what it WILL release or receive during this ceremony.

When you tell your subconscious mind specific instructions, it responds accordingly.

Remember to breathe and be sure your mind stays present and clear.


The Cacao Ceremony –

Open your eyes and drink or eat your cacao, be present and intentional while consuming this. Taste the richness, the creaminess, feel the texture of the chocolate and how it feels going down your throat. Know that you are consuming a form of medicine and remember the intention you set for this ceremony and continue to focus your energy on it.

Once you’ve finished your serving, lay down in your comfortable space. Be sure you are comfortable. If you need to get a pillow, blanket or whatever to make you comfortable, be sure to do so.

Continue your meditation while lying down and continue to keep your energy on the intention you set. Listen to your meditative music and feel into it’s rhythm.

Breathwork –

Once you feel comfortable and fully present, then reach your arms in front of you, towards the sky and allow them to fall aligned with each other to the sides (like you are creating a line with both arms, or like opening your arms far out to huge a giant tree.) To make sure you understand how this works, imagine the lines here are your arms and the dot is your torso. –.–

Every time you lift your arms back up, breath deeply in and every time you breath out, let them lay to your side. Allow your torso to curve upward if that’s what you feel called to do. If you feel called to make noises of any sort, do so.

This is a breathwork technique that opens up the heart chakra as well as can put you into a tranquil state of being. Perfect for cacao as well as the full moon.

Breathe in the scents around you and feel into the music!

Breathe with your arm movements and allow the energy to come in, allow that energy you intended to receive to breathe into your being. Allow your heart chakra to open fully and receive.

Connect with this energy, the Universal energy of limitless abundance and miracles and allow it to give you all the answers and healing you are searching for. Breathe it in.

You may start to feeling tingly, you may see colors, visions or begin to be light headed. All of this is the abundance of energy seeping into your energetic being. Allow it to come through and to shape guidance, understanding, healing and miracles in your life through that connection.


Finishing –

You can practice this ritual as long as you’d like, but when you are finished, begin to slow your breathing, slow your arm movements and slowly you can stop the arm movement.

Just lie their in peace, feel that radiant energy in you and all around you and feel blissful right here in this present moment. Let it’s miracles seep into your spirit and listen to the guidance and intuition that follows this ceremony.


I hope you enjoy!

How To Strategically Place Your Crystals In Your Home

When you first dive into the crystal life, you likely are to buy a bunch of small crystals of all different sorts because of all the excitement!

But after a while, when you’ve developed an understanding of how crystals and their energies work, you’ll find that your citrine really doesn’t pair well energetically with your aquamarine.

You’ll feel less of a need to buy a bunch of little crystals of all sorts of colors and more of a need to buy larger crystals that compliment another crystal well.

So to start you off, I want to give you some pointers as to which crystals to put in certain spaces of the home that you may be needing more aligned energy within.

The Bedroom –

Rose Quartz, Selenite and Amethyst pair phenomenally together in spaces such as the bedroom.

This is because these stones are subtle and soothing. Rose quartz is a stone for compassion, love within yourself. Amethyst will connect you further with your intuition and can supply you with lucid dreaming.

Selenite, I believe to be great for all spaces, as it is a negative energy diffuser, it charges other crystals within it’s environment and can provide a sense of peace and enlightenment.

Selenite Charging Plate

Other great crystals for the bedroom are Scolecite, a strong promoter of good sleep. Moonstone, a feminine energy stone that can connect you to your feminine energy and promote calm.

Blue crystals such as blue lace agate and aquamarine can be good for the bedroom as well. Depending on the energy you wish to invoke. These crystals promote peace and tranquility as well as good communication.

Your Work Space –

Crystals that you wish to have in your work space depends on the kind of work you do within that space and the energy you wish to give it.

Vanadanite is a great stone for almost all work spaces, as it promotes the energy of productivity, accomplishing goals and is a root chakra balancing stone. The root chakra is all about stability, security and grounding.

Some other great stones for the work space are citrine, which has a strong energy related to creativity.

Smokey quartz is a powerful negative energy diffuser, great if any space may promote feelings of stress.

Citrine Crystal

Living Spaces (Dining Room + Living Room) –

Common living spaces such as the dining room and living room, or wherever you seem to spend most of your time with friends and family, are often overlooked when it comes to placing crystals with purpose.

These places are important. Depending on which energy you’d like to promote, here are some crystal energy suggestions for these spaces.

Blue Chalcedony and Sodalite are both amazing stones for common living spaces where people tend to hang out. These crystals promote open communication, speaking your truth and joy.

Many blue crystals will promote peace and open communication, as it is a throat chakra balancer.

Powerful negative energy diffusers are great for these spaces as well, such as black tourmaline, shungite and black kyanite.

You can also place yellow stones, such as natural citrine and yellow sapphire to promote happiness!

Aqua Aura Quartz

I always recommend placing clear quartz throughout the home as well, as this amplifies the energy of crystals as well as diffusing negative energy throughout.

If you place your crystals within your home with intention, amplifying this energy is powerful.

Try these crystal placements and let me know what you think! πŸ™‚

Dive deeper into crystal knowledge and develop a deeper understanding as to which crystal you need in your life to manifest intentions, based off which chakras you need balanced.

Manifest with the energy of the moon, learn the Laws of the Universe, principles of manifestation, discover your hidden subconscious beliefs and rewrite those stories to manifest effortlessly.

Connect, ground yourself within the Universe and change your energetic being to a higher vibration.

You Are So Divinely Guided

I always believed that I already knew this fact about our world… I’d be the one saying, everything happens for a reason to others when they needed it. But only recently did has this truly enter my mind space in a whole new way.

I recently went to a small city in central Mexico, San Miguel De Allende. This trip had been planned for a very long time, I was doing a yoga teacher training with Sanadora Yoga.

It was the day that I was officially leaving that more and more news, bans and restrictions started to arise, regarding the Coronavirus. I stay informed on what is necessary for me to know on the news, though I refuse to fill my head with it all day long, as it’s all that is on social media and t.v, you might say I have not been present as much on these media’s, trying to not fill my head with unnecessary fear… just with the facts as I needed to know them.

So yes, I was aware that things were closing and bans were happening. I was informed of it all day long, the day that I was driving to the Seattle airport. Family members, friends and my yoga teacher herself, all concerned.

Right before I was leaving, I started to second guess myself. Though I have been excited about this trip, regarding the news all day!

The truth is I let everyone else’s worries get to me. They had every reason to worry… but I was reminded that their may have been a different underlying reason behind the fear I was experiencing while driving to Seattle.

I shut out all the noise from people trying to get me to turn around and not get on this plane. I asked myself, do I feel comfortable leaving the country? Do I feel comfortable being at the Seattle airport, on a plane?

Yes!

I absolutely did. So what was it exactly that was causing me to deliberate this decision?… It wasn’t COVID-19…

You see, the ego often knows when your going out of your comfort zone, it knows when your vibration is elevating and when your on the brink of great growth. And like the ego always does, it tries to keep you stable, stagnate, safe… and it often relates it to things in our physical realm so that it makes more sense to us.

We often confuse the ego with our intuition. But this was a time that challenged my ability to interpret the two.

The ego comes up in times of fear. Often when you are pondering on two different decisions, one is based more out of a concept of fear, and the other… a pure calling that may not make sense to anyone else.

So I went even deeper… what was a really scared of?

Up until this point, I didn’t consider myself intimidated to travel to Mexico alone, to train to be a yoga teacher, to produce content for Sanadora Yoga. I was jumping into several unknown territories… all that were getting me out of my comfort zone, all were new to me, all that honestly… scared me deep down, now that I was really tuning into it, now that I was on my way to the airport.

And this is exactly why I needed to do it. Too many times I had pushed away my Intuition, my Divine Guidance… and covered it up with all the reasons why not… the thing is, Divine Guidance is divine simply because it usually won’t make sense to anyone else… it is your unique path and no one else should feel such an obligation to walk it like you do.

And you don’t need to explain it to anyone or try to rationalize it… our guidance is beyond our logical minds… it is our magic.

Everything went a smoothly as it possibly could, traveling to Mexico. Getting on two different planes and an hour and a half shuttle to this beautiful city.

Once I got there I felt completely at home… even diving into something that has already been in the process for nearly six months, I connected with these amazing people so effortlessly, in such an intimate way filled with love and growth.

We practiced yoga, meditation and breath work for 8 hours a day. Teaching yoga for the first time was a first for me. Practicing inner work for so long was new for me… and it was exactly what I needed

My spiritual practices are amongst my highest priorities, but sometimes we fall off the bandwagon and get caught up with the world.

I was there for a short 3 days… I was dealing with more and more restrictions regarding COVID-19 in the US and also in Mexico. There was word of the border being closed, words of the Seattle Airport closing down. So I got on the phone to try to change my flight (it could only be done via phone) and was on hold for over two hours a day, unable to get ahold of anyone.

I remained calm… content. I honestly still felt safe. But the yoga training was postponed for a better time, so I took a shuttle to the airport and had to buy a completely separate ticket home.

Was I stressed or thinking negatively about this situation? No.

I knew that I was here for a reason… and that I was being called to go back for a reason.

You see, the Universe doesn’t consider your complications as a negative aspect… it only considers the lesson to be learned.

This beautiful city and deep inner work were calling to me and now that I am back home, quarantine, I still practice it for at least an hour and a half every day. In this time of limited distractions, staying home with minimal work, I’ve turned my energy inward and brought peace within all this madness.

Who knows how my two weeks would have been without this guidance… I wouldn’t be here sharing this experience and knowledge with you.

Make good use of your time at home, with family, with loved ones, animals, alone… whatever it may be. This is precious time that is honestly hard to come by these days. This is a time to slow down our minds, go inward, find peace, do the things that we always say we don’t have time for, write the book, start the website, play the guitar, cook gourmet meals, meditate for hours, whatever is being called to you.

Know that this time is meant for us, there is a lesson within everything. Even when everything seems to go wrong… you have the option to choose the fact that it is part of your Divine Guidance. Whether you got fired, your car broke down, your flight got cancelled, the store was closed… you can choose to see that as a part to play in your divine path.

And when something is calling to you and you can’t explain it, can’t explain why, can’t reason with it… know that, that is your Divine Guidance too and it’s not your job to reason with it. Your job is to trust it.

Sending love and my light to everyone out there being effected by this pandemic. For this who are home, I wish you health, safety and peace, for those ill, I wish you recovery and a prosperous life, for those passing, know that your moving onto your next, adventurous life.

New Moon Intention Candle Ritual

New Moon Bay Leaf Ritual

The new moon is always the most aligned time for setting new intentions to manifest into your life.

The moon affects our emotional energies and can impact our subconscious is ways we may still not understand. I like to call it our feminine energy (because the moon is a feminine sign).

This is why manifesting with the moon is so powerful and why I have a full two-week course to guide you through the process.

Based off the Law of Oneness, we are all connected and I fully believe that we are all made of the same energy found in the Universe and we are all magical.

Here is a new moon ritual to start manifesting a new intention into your life and connect to your magic a little deeper. πŸ™‚


For this ritual, all you will need is –

A sage stick

A candle and something to light it

A paper and pencil

And a quiet, positive aura for your ritual

Please be sure to do this on the night of the new moon or one of it’s phases (the day before or day after).

Your Ritual –

Cleanse your space with your sage stick or palo santo to creative a positive aura for your ritual and deflect any negative energies.

Use your sage stick to also fully cleanse your candle of all negative energies. It’s important to not light your new intentions with any lingering energies within the object.

Sit down in your ritual space, turn off all the lights, surround yourself with any crystals or incense that you wish to and make sure you are in a quiet space.

Now take out your notebook and pencil and write down what it is that you want to manifest with this new moon intention candle. You can only choose one intention so make it powerful, make it meaningful.

Journal on why it is you want to manifest this, the feelings that this manifestation will give you and how it feels to be on your way towards it soon. Journal on anything that you need to let go of in able to achieve this manifestation.


After you are done journaling, meditate on those feelings for a while. You can choose to listen to a meditative music or sound frequency, or you can choose pure silence.

Visualize what you see your life being like once you’ve achieved this manifestation and the feelings that are associated with it. Create emotion behind this intention.


Once you’ve sparked some passion behind this manifestation, open your eyes and say outloud to yourself, something along the lines of –

“I fully commit myself to achieve _________. I accept to put this intention out into the Universe, act upon it and allow the Universe to take over. I am excited for what’s to come with this new intention and I let go anything that may be in my way from achieving this goal. I know that this intention is on my way and it will come to me in divine timing.”

After you are done, light your candle. Light it with intention, your are lighting your manifestation into fruition.


Now, don’t ever blow this candle out… Keep this candle lit until it fully goes out on it’s own. Blowing out your candle is you blowing out your intention. If you worried about safety, put it in the sink or bath tub when you are away.

When you are around, put it in a place that you can see, to remind you of this manifestation seeping out into the world.

And when this candle finally goes out, trust that the Universe has received your request and will come to you in divine timing.

Join the next round of my moon manifestation course!

How To Manifest Travel

When you ask people what they want to manifest most into their lives, it seems that travel is among the top two, probably about even with money.

And I wont lie… I’m right there with you. I have had a DYING desire to travel for as long as I can remember. It seems it is my souls calling and I manage to make it happen while still maintaining a full-time 8-5 office job.

I used to think I needed a different type of job to travel often, like a remote job of some sorts but the truth is that was the exact thought that kept me from traveling in the first place. It was my own thoughts in my own way. Always thinking that I would travel SOME DAY.

Matching The Vibration Of Travel – AKA Freedom

The first step in anything manifestation, is realizing that you have manifested every aspect of your current life. That means if your not traveling, you manifested that… and you can also choose to manifest travel instead.

The most efficient way to manifest quickly is by using the Law of Vibration. This is one of the twelve Universal Laws that states everything has it’s own vibration. Everything in our world is vibrating energy at it’s core. Each is unique.

Emotions share a vibration as well, low vibrations are feelings such as sadness and depression, high vibrations are feelings of excitement and happiness.

It is these vibrations that open or close doors for us in the metaphysical world.

Dig deep and figure out what is it that drives you to travel, what is the feeling that travel gives you?

Usually this is a feeling of freedom… so to open up the energetic doors that match with the vibration of freedom, you need to make an extra effort to feel the feelings of freedom as much as you can NOW.

What is it that makes you feel free? Maybe it’s cruising around town with no destination with your windows down. Maybe it’s having a dance party in your living room when no one is around.

When you match the high vibrations of freedom in your life, you become a magnet for that feeling. Meaning that doors will open for travel in your life that may have never been there before.

You must do things that make you a little scared in able to move energy around in the Universe and prove that you are ready.

[tp_from_our_city_fly_shortcodes origin=”SEA” one_way=”false” stops=”0″ limit=”10″ subid=”fromCity” off_title=”false” currency=”USD” paginate=”true”]

So now that we’ve covered the emotions you need to feel in able manifest travel. Let’s talk about the more physical action because I feel this portion is often missed.

Here’s the thing… the Universe responds to your decisions. If a door opens up for you to travel, you must say yes!

Sometimes taking a leap of faith to travel may be scary, your ego may pitch in and try to say that your not ready, that you don’t have the finances, that you have no one to go with, that there’s no way you’ll find the time off of work, that you have no one to watch your cat!

This is when you step outside of your monkey mind and realize that, that is your ego talking. Your ego wants to keep you stagnate, safe and comfortable… but you cannot create any sort of change in your reality if you don’t put out a different energy for the Universe to play with.

I always remind myself that if I am feeling a little scared and a little uncomfortable… to embrace that feeling because it is this exact feeling that brings growth.

If you say no to your first opportunity for travel… it will be a long time before you find it again. Why? Because you told the Universe no. You told the Universe you weren’t ready.

You must make travel a RULE of your life. You must make freedom a RULE of your life.

To be honest… if you get your $1000 pay check, pay your bills, have $400 left over and blow it on makeup, clothes, getting your nails done and snacks… then you are not energetic match to travel. Your an energetic match to more makeup, clothing, ect., because that is exactly the energy you have put out.

AKA, if it’s not a priority, it wont pop out of thin air, that’s not what manifestation is all about.

Manifestation is about being OBSESSED with the thing you want to manifest, and putting every energy towards it, so that the Universe has no choice but to hand it to you.

Keep up to date on all things manifestation + spirituality

I have managed to manifest several trips around the world while still managing my 8-5 job because I AM OBSESSED.

Travel is an energetic minimum to me, it’s all I think about. It’s all over my vision board, I research travel all the time, look up new destinations, watch documentaries and YouTube videos on travel constantly.

I’ve went on trips when it’s scary, spent every last dime to travel and camped in a van while doing it… but it’s gotten easier as I’ve gone. As I continue to tell the Universe that I am more than ready, it becomes easier to manifest.

I find cheap flights, meet people that own property in places, make connects that are willing to collaborate and I tell my job way ahead of time to make sure there are no hiccups.

A lot of the time, I do these things before I’ve even booked the flight? Why? Because I have already DECIDED THAT IT WILL HAPPEN REGARDLESS. And that shit is powerful!

Do I want to travel even more? ABSOLUTELY! But it is important to not get impatient and begin to focus on what you don’t have… because this confuses the Universe to give you just that.

Another thing that can block you from manifesting travel is spiting on people that are already currently doing so.

If you see all these amazing videos and pictures of people traveling the world, instead of feeling envious, you must bless those people and send them love and positive energy.

Why? Because if you put out a negative emotion towards someone that has what you want to manifest, your correlating that negative energy with travel and the Universe and you are no longer an energetic match to it.

Always be in energetic alignment with the feelings that travel gives you.

Manifestation is an art… and it’s important to start understanding how it works, as it is based around the Laws of the Universe. Whether you understand them or not, they are creating the world around us and constantly in action.

I hope that I’ve inspired you to make that trip that has been scaring you… because when you put trust in the Universe, it rewards you greatly.

Full Moon Crystal Water Manifestation Ritual

We have a very special full moon coming up, the first super moon of the new decade!

This moon is called a super moon because the moon will appear extraordinarily large! Which means lots of moon energy and the perfect time for crystal charging and rituals!

Here is a powerful ritual I created for this full moon –

For this ritual, you must have purified water (from a river, lake, rain or another foraging type of natural water would be amazing, but if not, regular purified water will do.)

You will fill up two glasses with this water and put tourmaline crystals in one glass (a powerful negative energy diffuser) and 1-3 miscellaneous crystals in the other. These crystals must correlate with what you want to manifest.

For example –

Red crystals – security, independence, stability

Orange crystals – creativity, sexuality

Yellow crystals – zest for life, overall happiness

Green or pink crystals – self-love and love for others + nature

Blue crystals – sense of peace and to speak your truth

Purple crystals – intuition and physical abilities

Magenta or white crystals – Higher consciousness, enlightened self

You can check out my crystal and chakra information on my podcast here or Youtube here.

Be sure to cleanse your glass and crystals before hand with sage or palo santo, as well as your home to clear out negative energy for the next few days.

This full moon is on Saturday, so I recommend leaving your water with tourmaline out in the nearly full moon light the night before (Friday night.)

Sit down and meditate to a negative energy cleansing sound frequency, this one has been my current favorite.

Meditate on the things that you want to leave behind, what is it that this charged crystal water will rid of your body, what is it in your mind and spirit that must be removed?

In the morning, drink your tourmaline crystal water, this washes away negative energy in the body, wiping it clean of any low vibrations and starting new.

Meditate to the same sound frequency and take a moment to visualize in your mind, the physical action of this negative energy leaving your body. Feel the emotions that go along with leaving these things behind. How do you feel now that you no longer have this emotion holding you back?

Do not forget that you have rid this energy from you body as you go out on your day. Do not go back to old habits that bring this low frequency back into your aura.

Stay up to date on all things manifestation + spirituality

That night, place your purified water and manifestation crystals out in the super full moon light.

Meditate on what it is that you intend to manifest with this charged crystal water the next morning. Put your powerful intention into this ritual cleanse. You can listen to a sound frequency to raise your vibration. This one is my current favorite. You can choose to listen to this while you sleep as well.

The next morning, drink your manifestation crystal charged water slowly. Listen to your sound frequency and meditate as your drinking the water. Envision your new life with this new manifestation. Envision the energy seeping into your body, into your blood stream, into your energy, effecting your vibration, you auric field.

This is what brings the manifestation to you. You are literally drinking in energy charged vibrations that correlate with your manifestation.

Feel the feelings that go along with having your manifestation being on it’s way to you right now. This is the first step.

I will be drinking citrine charged water to raise my energetic vibration of my solar plexus to keep my happiness levels high and manifest more effectively throughout the month. πŸ™‚

How To Cleanse and Charge Your Crystals

It’s important to pay attention to the energy of your crystals, especially when you first purchase or are gifted them. Crystals can absorb negative energy from within it’s environment to provide more positive energy for the space.

Because of this, you want to be sure to regularly cleanse and charge them to restore that energy and cleanse the negative energies that they have absorbed, in able to keep providing you with their amazing energy!

Here are all the ways you can cleanse and charge your crystals, so you can start refilling the energy in your space!

Cleansing Your Crystals

Vibration

A great example of cleansing crystals with vibrational energy is placing a crystal in a singing bowl and using the singing bowl.

Singing Bowl

Himalayan Salt and Purified Water

Fill a bowl or glass with purified water (not tap water, try to use a water from nature such as a river or lake) and Himalayan sea salt.

Do not use this method for crystals with a hardness below 8, they can easily break apart in the water.

Smoke

I prefer to use sage, but you can also use another burning herb, palo santo or incense.

Crystal and Cleansing Kit

Charging Your Crystals –

Full Moon Energy

This is my favorite way to charge my crystals. Place your crystals outside or in an area where the moonlight hits during a full moon and leave them over night.

Sunshine Energy

Sunshine energy also works, though be warned to never overdo this, as it can mess with the color of your gems.

Use Other Crystals

Place your crystals around other charging crystals, some good ones are clear quartz and selenite. You can actually purchase plates or bowls to place your crystals in easily to charge them. πŸ™‚

The Three Principles To Manifestation

Manifestation is quiet an amazing super power that each and every one of us are able to achieve in some very simple ways, that are almost so simple, it seems unbelievable.

Our minds are so powerful, we don’t even understand just how powerful our minds are. People can quiet literally heal the body with the power of their mind, with positivity, with faith.

Firstly, it’s important to understand that the entire Universe is made of energy, to the very core of everything there is energy. And energy vibrates, each energy vibrates to a different vibration, as do emotions. Happiness has a higher vibration just as sadness has a lower vibration

So here are the three most important things I’ve found to manifest things into your life with the power of your own energy.

Super Attractor

Match To That Vibration/Energy :

Just as I said before, everything has a vibration, including emotions. There is a reason why people go in “downward spirals,” because something made them sad and they continued to think about that sadness, vibrating to the energy of sadness and therefore attracting more sadness.

We tend to be in a habit to vibrate at the low frequency of things such as depression, anger, envy, jealousy and many other emotions that are more common to talk about and bring attention to. You don’t as often that people make conversation about positive situations, and this energy is contagious.

If you want to manifest, for example, more money, when it comes to manifesting, it’s more than just money. Think deeper, is it the money that you want, or is the feeling that comes along with having money? Freedom, happiness, ect.

So if you vibrate to the frequency of those things, happiness and freedom, you will be far more likely to bring money into your life than if you were to be vibrating to a lower frequency.

Gratitude Cards

Act As If :

So let’s stick with this example of money, because let’s be real, everyone wants to manifest some more money (and this is not a wrong thing to want!) The second thing to help you manifest more money into your life is to act as if you already have the money!

I am still working on this factor, when I make a big purchase, I tend to cringe a little, I tend to have it in the back of my mind that I can only afford so much and I can’t afford this, I can’t afford that.

But since I have switched that mind set and NEVER say that I can’t afford something, my finances have been so much easier to handle!

How would you feel if you had more money in your bank account? Less stressed, more free? FEEL THAT WAY! It will feel weird at first, because you might only have $12 dollars in your bank account, but if you dwell on that in your mind throughout the day, that lowers your vibration and attracts more lack.

Expect that you have a check in the mail instead of a bill, expect that you are going to get a raise, expect that your going to make that sale, and you will vibrate to that frequency and attract exactly that!

The Universe Has Your Back

Let Go, Have Faith :

The last thing that goes hand in hand with manifesting, that people often leave off and it leaves them not manifesting anything, is having faith and letting go.

Once you put the intention out, expect that you are going to receive and vibrate to the frequency of that wealth, you now need to have faith and let it go. Don’t over-obsess over receiving what you want to manifest, when you do this, your putting a sense of worry that it isn’t coming out into the Universe, your not having faith… and so it wont.

All of this is easier said than done, I am still working on manifesting effectively. But after you master the art, you can manifest with ease. It’s kind of like when you are thinking about buying a Jeep, you think about it all the time, get excited about it and look at Jeeps all the time and so you tend to see more of them, because you are attracting Jeeps!

Manifesting isn’t always about receiving something for free (don’t expect a free Jeep with a bow on it for Christmas although that’s also possible.) But it just means that the Universe will open up doors that may not have been there before to bring the thing of which you are attracting to you.

I focused SO HARD on manifesting a trip to Bali, Indonesia. I expected it, I just knew it was going to happen even if I didn’t know how.

I have always had struggles saving and making travel happen, but it happened! And it happened with ease, it happened with extra money still in my bank account.
