Our shadows and darkness carry the nourishment we need to evolve to the next level of who we want to be in this world. Each shadow, each trauma carries vital information that can lead us to the next level of personal mastery. So often we avoid talking about or acknowledging our shadow because of the intense feelings, thoughts, and emotions that come with “going through it”.
To be free, we need to release the fear and shame we have around our shadows and past traumas. You are a work in progress. You are allowed to be sloppy. You are allowed to be emotional. You are a masterpiece of nuance and variation. Learning to love ALL parts of you, the beauty and the woundedness, is a radical act that is necessary if you truly want to be free from suffering.
One of the simplest ways to transmute and release negativity is through meditation. It is CRUCIAL that each person develop a daily meditation and ritualized practice that suits them. During this practice, one needs to be seated upright so that the spine becomes an antenna for energy. I suggest 10 minutes minimum very first thing in the morning. I suggest to keep it simple. As you breathe, feel the sensation of breath entering and exiting the body. Use your inner awareness to scan your body for places that can be relaxed energetically. Invite Light into your whole being and charge yourself until you feel radiant and lighthearted.
Learning energy healing practices can amplify the benefits of meditation. Simply bring your hands to places on your body that are needing care. Imagine that Light is flowing through the crown of your head, into your heart, down your arms, and shining out through the palms of your hands. As you do this, you may feel sensations coming from your hands or energy moving in the body. Breathe with it and allow yourself to receive this loving attention from yourself. In my Embodied Light courses, we learn a variety of simple techniques to soothe and balance energy and emotions. Each course involves energy attunements that increase your ability to hold and radiate healing Light energy. The methods are easy to learn and anyone can do them.

Nature Has Medicine for You
Take some time every week (every day if you can) to be in Nature. As you walk through the wilderness, the Earth will begin to work with your emotions and energy to bring you back into balance. Spend time next to water and offer your prayers to the water. The water carries wisdom and intention. Say hello to the trees, plants, and animals. When we nourish our relationship with Nature, we nourish our relationship with our true self.
Detoxify Your Life
We are bombarded by toxins in the modern world. Harsh chemicals, pollution, and cheap food bring us down. Find ways to reduce the toxic load on your body. Eat as clean and as light as possible. What we take into our body becomes our body. Treat your body as the temple of wisdom that it is.
Essential Oils and Aromatherapy
Learn how to use essential oils to support a positive and joyful mood. Each essential oil has uncountable health benefits and uses. Be sure that you are using a high quality, pure essential oil to avoid agitation from chemicals. I use Doterra as my trusted brand. I have certain oils that I use every day to support my body's ability to heal itself. Certain oils I use internally to detoxify or support my bodies systems. Diffusing has been a big game changer for me. It creates my emotional base for whatever I am doing. If I need to be focused, I have oils for that. If I am experiencing anger, I have oils for that. If I need to sleep, I have oils for that. All the while, the oils work with my subconscious to heal and balance my emotions.

We are in times of accelerated transformation. We need to keep our bodies hydrated to keep everything in balance. Water carries healing life force energy that can revitalize and renew our energy. Eliminate or reduce drinks that have a lot of sugar and chemicals. Have a headache? Drink a glass of pure water. Had an emotional day? Drink a glass of water. Water is Life. Drink more water.
Let Go of Stressful Relationships
Realize that every person is in your life for a reason. If you find yourself around negative people or in negative environments, go deep into your being to discover why you are attracting these circumstances. Maybe it has to do with your self-worth. Maybe it has to do with a dependency that you have imagined or created. Maybe it is guilt. Ask your Higher Self/God/Source what you can learn to move into better feeling relationships. If you do not do this work, you will keep attracting the same scenarios and types of people until you get it! Nothing is happening to you (blame), everything is happening FOR YOU (opportunity).
Find a teacher and mentor to guide you on your path of self-discovery and healing. Choose guides and mentors who hold the energy that you desire. Choose teachers who are uplifting and positive. A good teacher always points a student inward to their own intelligence and never claims to have the only way. If you are part of a group that says they have the only way to heaven, realize this is a fear-based belief that is not inline with the Love flows to you always. God/Goddess/All-That-Is welcomes all its parts back home.
