Containing Your Energy, Part 2

Transforming Draining Tasks into Energizing Ones!

Do you ever feel your energy sinking just thinking about something on your “to do” list?

I can think of countless times that I’ve done that!  My first chakra (practical, grounded. part) is one of my more challenging energy centers.  So – I’m not an efficiency expert or coming from a place of mastery in this area.  I am passionate about growing and being more energized in my life, and helping others do the same.

I’m writing this blog entry because it’s not something that comes naturally or easily for me.  Because it’s difficult, I celebrate every little “win” in this area.  Maybe you feel the same way.  Or maybe you’re great at this – and would love to comment and share some of your wisdom.   All are welcome!  🙂

How Do You Make Adulting Tasks More Fun and Energizing?

Please comment with some of the ways you do this!  We can all learn from each other.  Here are a few ideas:

Shift your PERSPECTIVE about a task

  • If I clean out my closet, I can make room for something new that I love!
  • Cleaning brings in fresh energy and I’ll make it fun by dancing around to a great playlist as I clean!
  • Sorting through this pile will help me concentrate better.

Change the WAY you do it

  • I’m going to bike to do my errands, because the thought of driving around to several places just sounds exhausting (and I keep avoiding it)! This way I get fresh air, exercise, and quality time with my sweetie.
  • Don’t want to stretch? Do it while watching TV.   Maybe it won’t be the purest yoga experience, but at least your body will feel better!
  • Craving a snack? Take an extra minute and make something just a little (or a lot) healthier.  You might feel better afterwards rather than guilty.

Containing Your Energy, Part 1

What does the phrase, Contain Your Energy mean to you?  In a recent vacation in New Zealand – Aotearoa, I received this message from my guides many times, in many different ways.  This and other messages have been percolating for a few weeks now.

Containing Your Energy has many implications, and I will be writing a new blog series about it which will include a sort of spiritual travelogue and share some of the wonderful insights that being in such pristine nature provided.  I hope that it will be helpful for more than just me.  I’ve already been integrating new layers of learning into my work with others.

Containing Your Energy means many things to me.  The first way I’d like to talk about it is seeing it as – How are You Giving Your Energy Away in ways that do not support your intentions?  I coach people often this concept, with the help of the Akashic Record Keepers and guides, when I perceive leaks, cords, holes, and incongruent beliefs in people’s chakras and auric field.  We help people to see and understand these patterns more clearly, shift the energy, and find strategies, habits and routines that can create a new way of being.  Some of this change can happen in an instant and some of it takes time and practice to implement into one’s life.  In my experience, personal growth is a consciousness project with practices that help to us to become more and more expansive.  Those little reminders that to do this instead of that can make a huge difference in how we experience life.  Daily practices based on our current awareness of who we are and how we want to be help us to focus and contain our energy within those intentions.

Here are some examples of Containing Your Energy challenges that I have seen in myself and other people:

Giving Yourself Permission to Hang up the “Temporarily Unavailable” Sign


Have you ever wanted to hang up a sign like this?  I recently got the flu and then a secondary infection that took a lot of my energy and attention, and I found myself just wanting to post this sign everywhere so I could duck and cover.  I did a version of that, and people were wonderfully understanding.

Most people have those times where you get the message: You need to take a break from everyone and everything NOW!  We have some deep healing to do.  Love, your Divine team.

What’s Next For You?


Perspective is everything isn’t it… it can completely change how we feel about ourselves, our lives, and what is possible.

In a special session yesterday, a message came through that a woman had already accomplished all her soul had come here to do.  She has worked so hard all of her life, but didn’t see how far she had come!  It was such an honor to brainstorm with her and and her record keepers to identify her new soul intention that includes a lot more fun.

We often have several waves of soul intentions.  When we accomplish one intention, another follows because our souls love the feeling of growing and expanding into more joy, grace, and fulfillment.

What is next for you?


Neck Pain Related to Past Lives

In an Akashic Record Coaching virtual session, Rosalie (name and other personal details changed for privacy.  Shared with permission.) said that her neck had been hurting all week.  She had been trying all sorts of things to help it feel better: stretches, exercises, herbal remedies, topical lotions, and E-stim.  All of those things helped, but she was still waking up every morning with her neck feeling really stiff.  Neck pain wasn’t usually an issue for her, and she thought something was affecting her on a spiritual – energetic level.

Filling Your Cups: Self-Care and the Chakras, Chakra 7

(Artwork Courtesy of Canva)

      The Seventh Chakra is found at the crown of the head. Some see it as a 144 petaled lotus which is waiting in ready to bloom, and open to unite with the brilliance of the Divine. Quality of connection at this chakra can be supported by the quality of connection (and self-care we are doing) at the rest of our major physical chakras of the body. This highest of our seven chakras inspires us to unite within ourselves to the Divine source, as the first chakra helps us to be grounded, practical, and in the physical. Both are important. The 7th Chakra is where we discover and continue to expand into our connection with the Divine. “It is also our ‘grace bank account’ the warehouse for the energy we mass through kind thoughts and actions, and through acts of faith and prayer (Myss, 1996, p. 265).

The Vedic tradition teaches that there are three main paths to the Divine: the path of knowledge or Jyana, the path of spiritual devotion or Bhakti, and the path of selfless service or Karma. These 3 paths can translate to any spiritual path or religion. The path of knowledge is often thought of as being found through the study of sacred teachings and texts; it is a path of the mind. Spiritual devotion engages the heart through practices such as chanting or singing holy songs, prayerfulness and kindness. Selfless service involves performing acts of compassion without attachment to outcome or reciprocity, as a way of serving the Divine that is seen as being within all beings. You may relate to one or all of these paths, or other paths to having a relationship with the Divine. Another way that many feel connected to the Divine is through group worship and study, such as through churches, synagogues, temples, or spiritual groups. Others feel connected when in the splendor of natural places. Being around animals or children can remind people of the purity of life, and help them to feel closer to the Divine. There are countless ways of meditating to seek inner connection with Source. What way or ways do you find work the best for you?
