I recently sat down with Sapphire Sandalo of Stories with Sapphire to contribute to her latest podcast episode. We talked about faith and energy healing. As always, I enjoyed geeking out talking about energy work.
The episode premieres Wednesday Feb 10. Check it out here: https://storieswithsapphire.com/
Spiritual development is about clearing your mind of all the distractions. When you can clear your mind, you can have crystal clear understanding of who you are, what you came into this life to do, and be clear on your path.
Early on in my development, I knew that in order to take my abilities to the next level, I needed to work through my blocks. I went through the motions of thinking I didn't have baggage to work through (eye roll at myself), thinking that I was working through baggage and it wasn't that bad(double eye roll), and then getting frustrated because I couldn't figure it out.
Well, I had such a hard time because I was stuck in a pattern trying to work through my baggage.
I was stuck in the pattern for so long that it was my normal.
After editing this video over time, I thought it was really funny that I talked about make up and appearances while looking pretty ratchet. I don't usually wear make up and if I do it is minimal but even my hair looks like it wants a day off lol. Enjoy!

A college student interviewed me as a reiki practitioner for their class and I kinda did a tiiiing. The student asked me: do you need any training, certifications, or licenses to practice reiki? I said no.
You see, I've come to view reiki like someone trying to take a common activity like walking or breathing and trying to claim it as proprietary. The definition from the International Center for Reiki Training, and one I agree with, is reiki is universal life force energy. As universal life force energy, we all have access to this energy. The idea that you need someone else to flip the switch and enable it within you is ludicrous. You don't need an attunement or initiation. The real work being done with the attunement/initiation is on your belief system.
Do you believe you have access to this universal life force energy?
Are you worthy of connection with this universal life force energy?
With any type of energy work, if you do not believe in it, it will not work. Does this ritual of attunement in any form help you? Of course it does if you're the kind of person that needs the pomp and circumstance to feel official.
I took a reiki 1 and 2 class and was certified. Am I dismissing the value of the classes? No, absolutely not. Every instructor I took for every class I've taken is amazing and was necessary for me to be where I am today. But if you feel called to learn the practice and find your barrier is affording the course, you do not need a certification, attunement, or expensive course. The most important skill you need to learn or be a practitioner is the intention. As long as a heart-based intention is there, you cool!
I share this coming from a place of being a serial course taker. I took course upon course because I thought I needed to check boxes to be enough. I am learning my truth and it is I am enough no matter where I am. So are you!
This picture makes me laugh so hard.
The one covered in my hair is Maximo. He used to be terrified of my hair. If he found it on the floor, he would freeze like he saw a black mamba ready to attack him.
Now he fully embraces it. Since I dyed my hair purple, he likes to let me put my hair on his head and pretend it is his purple hair.
We most definitely grow and change.
You could be terrified of hair today and letting your crazy mom cover you in it tomorrow.
You could feel hopeless and disconnected today and you could feel the support of the Universe tomorrow.
Life is about choices, take your pick.

If you want to align your actions, thoughts, and emotions to your spirit then let's talk how developing your psychic abilities help you live a full life. Developing your intuition isn't all about becoming a professional psychic or medium. It's about being the same person inside, outside, and in every expression. It is about eliminating the separation of your mind, body, and spirit through a shift in perspective.
Develop your intuition and then use it in your craft!
Schedule a 15 minute consultation with me to see if we are an energetic match.
Every color of the spectrum holds a different frequency and vibration. They correspond to different energy centers. The different shades within each color can tell us whether the energy is under expressed, balanced, or over expressed. Colors tell us so much!
This guided meditation is an activation of your connection to the different colors of the rainbow as a language and barometer for energy.
Note the different thoughts and sensations you experience with each color within the meditation.
Journal your experience post-meditation. You can do your own free-form meditation to dig deeper into the messages you received for each color.
If you would like to connect deeper with color symbolism or understand your symbols on a deeper level, setup a 15 minute consultation with me to see if we are an energetic match. I developed my intuitive abilities independently for as far as I could. At some point, I felt I plateaued and sought working with a mentor to guide me and expand my practice.

Triggers. The word trigger(s) became a more commonly used term in recent years. Before then, I don't think there was a more succinct way to describe the people, places, and things that would incite repressed feelings of emotional pain and discomfort, These triggers are symptoms of our wounds, emotional wounds. If wounds are darkness, blocking the light so that we cannot see clearly, then light is the flashlight of an expansion of consciousness to see the whole picture.
When we think of healing, people often think of going to the doctor, having the doctor tell them what is happening, and get a prescription. Our involvement stopped when we unloaded our experience on the doctor and at that point, it became their issue to resolve. Let the doctor fix it. Let the prescription fix it. We effectively have washed our hands of it.
Energy healing is different. The dis-eased owns the healing from beginning to end. As a practitioner, I hold space and guide you through the healing. I facilitate the recognition of the wound and understanding it's place in consciousness. This is enabling you to realize your empowerment. Does my situation own me? Or, do I own the situation? This creates a huge shift in your perspective to make and own the life of joy that you deserve.
While I may bring in energy through crystals, reiki, chromotherapy, or other modalities to return your energetic body to equilibrium, the long term healing comes from your choices once you leave our session. I work with our Spirit Guides in sessions to bring forth messages to integrate healing. Our guides will give insight and/or advice to how we feel, why we feel, and what we can do. It depends on each person and what serves your highest and greatest good.
Healing begins with the recognition of one's sovereignty. Sovereignty over such triggers. Sovereignty to allow light. Sovereignty to be in any freaking state of healedness you wish! This is true empowerment. Realizing that this flowed from you and that you can change it.
Whether you want to learn the tools to heal yourself or work with me 1x1, I've got you! Use the button on the top of this page to book a complimentary 15 minute consultation to see if we are an energetic match.
Boundaries have been a common theme in my spiritual development. Boundaries with how much of myself I give as well as boundaries for how much I want to let people in. Boundaries are important for everyone. Our energy is our currency and how we co-create with others and vice versa is a choice. Be thoughtful with how much of your energy you share, who you share it with, and how you put it out there. How you decide is what manifests as your future.
When I started developing my own intuition, I wanted every opportunity to practice reading energy. I would read people on my bus commute to work. I wouldn't share what I got with anyone, it was for the sake of exercising my psychic muscles. Do NOT do what I did. That was an invasion of privacy. If I knew then what I know now, I never would've done it. Practice healthy boundaries.

By day I work for a Fortune 50 company in the finance industry. I'm currently working on the Paycheck Protection Program's Loan Forgiveness within my work. As a result, I've been using the term forgiveness quite a bit. In writing a work email, I wrote something along the lines of "requesting forgiveness." I looked at my email and laughed thinking, oh that sounds like they're asking for penance. I decided I should be more specific and indicate "loan forgiveness."
It got me thinking about affirmations and the energy we put behind our thoughts and words. What could that mean with the amount of energy put behind the word forgiveness with this program alone? It is no question that the world is going through a major shift, a great awakening some call it. For me it signals a monumental period of release that we will go through as a collective. With that amount of energy behind the word, whether conscious of the power or not, it is going to activate a release on a large scale.
As I gave more space to the use of the word forgiveness and the intention behind it, I considered the different thoughts, emotions, experiences, etc that each of us may be holding onto in a way that holds us back.These thoughts, emotions, experiences, etc. create blinders or blocks to our perspective and it is in forgiveness of all directions that we can remove them and see the bigger picture with expanded consciousness/awareness. It allows us to return to the core of who we are with every part as a co-creating contributor rather than a detractor or delimiter. Forgiveness allows us to shift from a perspective of fear, doubt, pain, etc and use the energy in a way that builds us up rather than breaks us down.
Consider something that you are hiding from others or that makes you tense when you think of it. Now focus on it and say the following words in order:
I love you.
That is the Ho'oponopono Prayer. Comment below your experience.
Archetypes. We are all playing characters/roles, alternating through a cast as the situation/scene changes. Every role is neutral. It is the influence or energy infused into the role that impresses upon it a tipping of the scale to light vs shadow or good vs bad.
I asked the deck, which archetypes do I need to be aware of this coming week? I got the Shape Shifter reversed.
A shape shifter in its highest expression of the energy is in the flow, agile, diverse. They are grounded and skilled at navigating through the ebbs and flows of consciousness for the greatest outcome. They are a chameleon but no matter what, they know who they are. They're merely playing with the variables to surface the untapped potential.
In it's lowest expression, a shape shifter is not grounded. They barely know what they want. They're shape shifting to avoid and to hide the truth of who they are. It is possible they don't know who they are so they don't know how to align to their Highest Self. They float along, fickle in their objectives. Serving their goals and not themselves. They align to an idea, a thought. Ya should align to that badass within. Just sayin....
Whether in yourself or in others, have you seen this archetype before?
I know I have. I guess you could say this was/is me. Not identifying with my purpose, I tend to align with a thought or an idea. But those are fleeting! When I am aligned to a part of me, the undeniable part of me that is me 100% 24/7, it is simply unquestionable. I know when I've strayed or become distant and can navigate my way back. It's this strong connection with my "home" that keeps me from getting totally lost. When I feel doubt or panic, I've lost sight of who I am. I start to veer towards people pleasing. People pleasing sucks because you're compromising yourself for success. Well I ain't hear for everybody and neither are you! The more comfortable we get with that, the happier we can be. To know who you're here for (clue: it's yourself), the better we get at shape shifting for our highest and greatest good.
So here I am, no make up, hair undone, t-shirt, and bags under my eyes to tell you....it doesn't matter what you look like or how you style it. The people (your people) that need to hear your message are going to listen because it resonates with their soul. Not because ya used a fritty color or some fritty font or some fritty picture. It's because they are an energetic match. Period.
