Dear People,

A lot of the time we are busy trying to deal with everything on our own. Asking for help is not something that comes natural to most of us. So it's no surprise that I've written 2 articles on it, but today I want to focus on what type of outside energy/guidance is available to us and how you can incorporate them into your life.

God/Highest Source/Heaven/Universe
A lot of people feel connected to a greater something, regardless on what type of name we will put on it. As an outside source, this is the easiest to connect with, but also often the hardest to get a clear answer from for a lot of people. It's because the energy is so big and loving, it's nice to access, but sometimes it feel our concerns are very small in comparison.

Incorporating this in your life can be as simple as saying a prayer or spending time tuning into the energy.

Guide
A lot of people work with one Guide exclusively. They try to foster a relationship where they can ask their Guide for Guidance regularly. Guides come from all walks of life, with different interests and advice based on what they are meant to help you with. There are many meditations to help meet your Guide, but sometimes Guides can also change during your life time.

Incorporate your Guide by meditating regularly, until you receive a name or image, that stays clear, so you can ask for advice and help.

Angels
Angels have held people's awe for a long time. There are Angels in oral tradition in lots of different places, so while Christians tend to think they are the only one with Angels, that isn't true. For many Angels are the messengers of God, more accessible to us, and easier to receive guidance from.

Incorporate working with Angels by calling upon them regularly, you will notice different Angel Energies depending on your question and work. There are also many good sets to work with Angels if you want to work with cards.

Faeries
Faeries can be nature spirits, but also spirits that are sideways from the reality that we perceive. They are often more capricious then Angels, but also more fun and down to earth. Their energy is very different and there are many different ways in which they can help you.

Incorporate working with Faeries by doing nature work, like growing plants, gardening or working with flowers in your daily life. Pay attention when you walk in the woods or in other natural places. Again, there are many good sets to work with Faeries if you want to work with cards.

Animal Totems
Animal Totems come from the tradition that animals have lessons to teach us and are valuable in our daily lives. Totems are more then just animals, as you can talk with Totem Animals and receive great wisdom. A lot of people who are drawn to Animal Totems feel connected to nature and Shamanism. Animal Totems help with spiritual lessons and integrating pieces of yourself.

Incorporate working with Animal Totems by doing meditative work, chanting or Shamanistic work. I work with Animal Orbs during meditation, but there are also several good sets of Cards if you want to work with Animal Totems.

Ancestors
While currently, a lot of people in the west don't work with Ancestors, in the East, honoring your ancestors and having access to their wisdom is very common place.

Incorporate your ancestors by tuning in energetically, doing some research on them or even putting a small candle by a photo of ancestors you feel connected to (like your parents, grandparents etc.).

Dear People,

Today I'm writing some EFT sentences to help with fear. Fear should be a healthy response to make sure you double check if what you want to do is a good idea. However, often, fear becomes a mind killer, something that stops reasonable thoughts and traps us with the problem. We get so emotionally blocked that we can't take the actions we need to move forward.

So start dealing with fear today by using EFT to move forward.

Acknowledging fear
Even though I'm afraid to acknowledge my fear, I allow myself to be vulnerable
Even though I'm too afraid to speak, I know I always have a voice
Even though I'm too afraid to think, I know I always have my mind
Even though I'm too afraid to move, I choose to move forward

Reducing fear
Even though my fear is so pervasive, I know I'm strong enough to deal with it
Even though my fear is so overpowering, I know I'm stronger/can be stronger
Even though my fear is so painful, I know I can move through it
Even though my fear is so big, I know I am larger then my fear
Even though I'm really afraid, I choose the truth
Even though I'm really afraid, I choose to ask for help
Even though I'm really afraid, I choose to ask for help from God (Higher Self/Universe/Angels)
Even though I'm really afraid, I choose to give myself a reality check
Even though I'm really afraid, I choose to confront my fear
Even though I'm really afraid, I trust myself
Even though I'm really afraid, I choose to trust God (The Universe/My Higher Self)

Dealing with fear
Even though I am afraid others might look down upon me, I know everybody has their fears
Even though I'm afraid others might laugh at me, I know everybody has their fears
Even though I'm too afraid to do what's right for me, I won't let this fear stop me
Even though I'm too afraid to broach this subject, I choose to be honest with <person X>
Even though I'm too afraid to talk about this, I choose to open up to <person X>
Even though I'm too afraid to ask for help, I open up to <person X>/God
Even though I'm too afraid to ask for help, allow myself to receive help
Even though I'm afraid that there is no solution, I trust in myself
Even though I'm afraid that there is no solution, I trust in myself and others
Even though I'm afraid that there is no solution, I trust in God

After fear
Even though X felt pretty scary, I'm proud of myself that I did it
Even though Y felt pretty scary, it's no longer a big deal
Even though Z felt pretty scary, I moved through it successfully
Even though I was scared, I dealt with my fear appropriately
Even though I was scared, I conquered my fear
Even though I was scared, I processed my fear

Dear People,

Often we have troubles looking clearly at our own actions in the past. We can be overcome by shame, fear or guilt when we relive what we have done. We might get angry at the state of our lives or jealous at others. So we shy away from our truth and our past, missing important clues on how to make or now and our future better.

So today I've written a little bit about the healing power of self reflection and an exercise to try at home.

Self Reflection
As a tool, self reflection helps us by showing us what is working and isn't working in our lives. When we try something, we never know what kind of results we get, until the end. Then we have to live with the consequences. When we use self reflection, we are powerless to change what has happened, but we are empowered by hindsight and experience.

I like to reflect on how the main three things first: time, energy and attention. I like to see how I used my time during the day, week or month. That allows me to see what I'm doing with my life. Sometimes I might get mired in spending time on things that don't matter much to me (pointless reading, long phone calls etc.) instead of working towards my goals and enjoying my life.

I also check how my energy levels where. Seeing where they dip, allows me to see what isn't working or where I need more support. Or, just relax and deal with the fact that I got the flu or are a little below the weather. I check if my energy is with me or if I'm giving it to others, trying to help them in a self sacrificing or sabotaging way. Seeing where my energy grows and multiplies, tells me what I need to have more off in my life.

I also see what has held my attention; did I work towards my goals? Was I distracted with other things going on in my life? Did I got stuck in negativity or did I move towards problem solving? Was I able to trust or not? What holds our attention grows and we often spend time and energy on that which holds our attention.

Exercise
Make sure you have around 10-25 minutes in which you can work uninterrupted and have a pen and paper ready. If during this exercise you notice that you are creating judgements, fear, shame or guilt, take some time to release those.

Question 1: What went well this (week/month/year) ?
Sub-question: Why?

Question 2: What didn't go well ? What are you disgruntled/angry/dissatisfied about?
Sub-question: Why not? What would have been better to do?

Question 3: What plans/decisions are you going implement in the next (week/month/year) ?

Example:
What went well this week?
Eating healthier food.

Why?
It went well because I made sure I had some good snacks to take with me or easily grab. I made time to make some good juices to help pick me up. I planned healthier dinners and was energetic enough to fix them. I saw some good results on the scale and that motivated me to stay on course.

What didn't went well?
Fixing some administration. I still have to finish it.

Why not?
I'm bored, I don't like doing it and it's a lot of work. I preferred doing other things and distracted myself with other tasks. It would have been better to plan a time/date and sit my ass down to finish it.

What am I going to implement?
I need some extra motivation, so I'm going to reward myself when this administration is finished. I will plan a time/date that works so I can have 2 uninterrupted hours and fix it. I am going to continue with the healthy dinners.

Possible problems in judgements/fears/shame/guilt:
  • I should have done it already => I can't go back in time
  • I am lazy => I choose to finish this and increase my discipline and motivation
  • I am dumb => I choose to find help so I can finish this
  • Well, that went well, let's not think on it => I choose to learn from my experiences
  • I am afraid I can't do this => Let's find out how far I come/Let's try
