Do you ever feel "off" or unable to concentrate? For most of us it happens when we be loose focus. This usually happens when we are overwhelmed or anxious and can happen at any time to anyone. I have a simple grounding exercise you can try today listen/download it here: to quickly help you feel more grounded and supported.
The exercise is embedded with the gentle energy of Reiki and super easy to master. Give it a listen now.
"Bad energy," "negative energy," or bad vibes are used universally to describe people or situations that make us feel apprehensive, uncomfortable, or anxious.
But what does that mean?
Very few people can see energy, but almost all of us can feel or sense it on some level. Everything around us is made of energy; the earth, the cosmos, and our bodies are all made of energy. This energy is in flux all the time; it is constantly moving and shifting. We are impacted by what we consume; eat, drink, watch, and engage in, which also happens to the people around us.
This energy is flowing around us constantly, through our homes, influencing the people we spend time with, coating our possessions, affecting our health, and the list goes on and on.
So when you hear someone talking about a "vibe," they are speaking about a feeling. For example, you might go to the market, and as you are paying for your purchase, you interact with a person and get an odd vibe from them, or you might also really connect with someone and feel a good vibe from them like a kindred soul, someone you resonate with and want to get to know. This feeling isn't based on appearance but on the person's energy.
Have you ever gone to a meeting or to visit a friend and walked into a room and felt the energy is "off"? People's moods can have an instant effect on the whole vibe of a room. The vibration felt, bad or good, can then influence your interaction and even your mood. (This is especially true for empaths.)
How To Know If Your House Has Negative Energy
Ideally, your home is a peaceful sanctuary for you and your family. It should be your safe place: a place to relax and unwind and a place to restore your energy. Your home should be both a reflection of yourself as well a place to nurture your spirit.
But if your house doesn't feel that way, it might signal you need to work on clearing the stagnant energy before it becomes harmful.
Signs the energy is negative include:
Constantly arguing, complaining, criticizing, or feel trapped when you are home. Feeling sad, anxious, or unsafe at home are also signs the vibe is out of balance. Unhealthy relationships under your roof are also an indication that the energy is off.
Too much clutter, trash, or chaos can also lead to negative energy. An area where people are constantly ill, plants won't grow, pets run away, or people don't like to spend time is also a sign of negative energy.
Don't get me wrong; everyone can have off days or days things don't work out. I'm talking about more bad days than good. It's essential to understand this difference and not jump to conclusions.
If you need some assistance clearing stuck energy or suspect your energy has become off or even harmful, I'm here to help.

I was asked an interesting question last week..One of my coaching clients asked what happens if trauma is not resolved? She was wondering if she could heal her trauma while living in an abusive situation. Her situation, while unique isn’t all that uncommon. We often go from one bad situation to another, because we haven’t healed the trauma from the past.
If the traumatizing situation doesn’t end, the person just keeps getting sicker and sicker, and their nervous system continues to suffer. The trauma takes it toll on the entire body and over time your mental and physical health degrades. There is no healing of trauma until the traumatic stress and the dangerous circumstances end.
So the short answer is no, you cannot fully heal while continuing to live in an abusive situation. The first step to wellness is leaving the situation. No real healing can take place as long as you remain. If you are struggling in an abusive situation then please seek help.
You don’t have to live like this.
Worldwide, 50 million people are living with Alzheimer's and other dementias.
Now with everything going on in the world we need to look after the people that are looking after Alzheimer victims. Do what you can; call, text, drop of goodies and let them know you are thinking of them. Be a helping hand in the chaos.
2020 - What Will the New Year Bring?
Whatever we want to create, design and bring into being, it's up to us.
Take a few moment today and breathe deeply, with your hand on your heart and ask yourself these questions:
Have a wonderful New Year!
Hello Dear Friends,
As we move closer to 2020, many of us are looking back at 2019 and the ending of a decade. Planning for the future is important, but so is looking back on the journey. All your hard work has put you in a better place than when this year began. Be thankful and give yourself the credit you deserve.
But now with the holidays, many of you are forced to make uncomfortable decisions as boundaries are tested. While you might feel obligated to take part in family gatherings or attend parties, remember you are allowed to simply say no. This may mean breaking family traditions or routines, but your peace of mind is worth so much more.
You have worked hard to gain ground and put these boundaries in place. I encourage you to stand tall now and not entertain drama or negative energy of any kind this holiday season. While some situations will test your patience and resolve, stand your ground and keep firm on what you allow into your life. Don't overreact, but also don't give in.
Your attention and focus are your greatest powers. Use them wisely and don't allow yourself to be drawn into unnecessary drama or anything that doesn't add value to your life. Protect your energy and you will have a much more pleasant holiday experience and start 2020 from a calmer, more relaxed point-of-view.
If you need support, I'm here. Together we can define these boundaries and build your best, blissful life.
