Silence is a gift from the soul to listen and connect to the deepest part of your wisdom. As you choose silence in any form, you choose to be in the presence of something greater and stronger than you. You choose to be receiving exactly what you need at that moment.
As the practice of silence becomes more skilled, you start to see more than ever before. You see how nature is always doing exactly what it needs to at each moment and every season. You see that the animals are performing their life in a natural rhythm and in harmony with their abilities. You see how every life form is gifted with the ability to thrive and grow with everything it needs readily available. You see that communication takes place for all of these living, breathing entities, and yet they are without the level of human communication that you are so accustomed to performing.
Silence is one of the greatest opportunities to be a recipient of Divine Love. It is the decision to trust the messages that come through that you hear, although this is not hearing with human ears. It is a hearing of the soul that is more elaborate, and yet so finely simplistic it takes removing the human ears to truly listen. It is a listening that yearns for your commitment.
Silence as an art form is cultivated willingly. As you do so, the best ideas, plans, actions and inspirations will come through. Silence is a balance to your other capabilities. It is the required ebb and flow that will connect you to exactly the life you are here to lead. It is the art form that will bring you every answer and provide the next question to investigate.
Be the silence that allows you to receive. Be the stillness that allows your greatest connection to open up. Be the receiver who leads from your heart and mind. Be in the place that connects you to everything you need.

To create peace means to have loving thoughts where none currently exist. To create peace means to shine light on places, internal and external, that are experiencing darkness. To create peace means to raise the energy to a higher form of itself, a form of transmutation that can happen instantly when it is given intention. To create peace means to be the one who declares all is well when that is not what the human senses are experiencing.
Peace is an energy that must be created. It only exists and thrives with conscious intention. To experience peace is to connect to the parts of your soul that know it regularly. You must call on it with intention and bring it out into the world.
Peace exponentially increases through prayer and light, especially when groups are devoted to these practices. Peace takes many forms, but ultimately it is created through the willingness to rise above the chaos, trauma and darkness that precedes it. Almost every place on earth has experienced war, turmoil and darkness and these are the places that are waiting for the energy to be consciously changed. Many will lead this effort and it is up to you to contribute to their energy with your own messages of peace.
Peace is your natural rhythm and existence. It is the place you know as Home and the way you are accustomed to moving. Peace is the existence you are here to create because it is what you carry inside of you effortlessly. Peace is your birthright, and it is your place of ultimate destiny, but only if you choose to be this energy intentionally.
Often it is against human nature to respond with peace when one is attacked, embarrassed, upset, and moving through periods of darkness. But peace is always waiting for you when you are ready to detach, surrender and let go of ego lessons.
Be the peace you carry in your soul. Be the peace that lights the way for others in hardship. Be the peace that allows your true essence to light the way. Connect to the peace in another before you share darkness with them. Connect to the peace that is your natural home and invite others to share that space.

If you're looking for an all-in-one resource to understanding the complexities and simplicities of spiritual growth, this book by Sanaya Roman has everything: how to be your Higher Self in everyday life, how to manifest what you truly desire easily, how to work with light for healing and instant energy, and how to connect with the Universal Mind for greater creativity. Plus so much more!
The book is divided into three sections with seven chapters each: Reaching Upward, Opening Inward, and Expanding Outward. Each chapter contains insightful information, quotes and meditation suggestions about the ongoing journey of spiritual growth and how we can keep moving into higher consciousness.
I've been reading a chapter a night before going to sleep to connect with the highest possible energies in my dream state. There is calmness that takes over as I turn each page because it's not simply words I'm reading; it's thoughts I'm re-membering. All of it makes comforting sense to who I am as a Soul and I love the process of re-membering more.
The reviews and quotes by other readers are amazing!
"It has empowered me to be who I am and speak my truth."
"Serenity and a sense of wholeness."
"I feel expansive and clear more frequently."
"I feel like I am finally coming home. Things make more sense, and I have answers to my questions."
If you follow this blog, you may have seen that I have recommended other books by Sanaya Roman before - she and her messages are consistently excellent. May this one resonate with you and your journey.

Venus is the energy of sharing, relating, receiving, and self-worth in our natal astrology charts, and she has learned some very important insights during her recent retrograde in Scorpio. A deep realignment has unfolded for the Divine Feminine over this year, and now she knows she must honor who she truly is and what she needs in her relationships.
In this special episode on Divine Feminine energies, I am joined by Erika Elmuts (Intuitive, Channel, Energy Healer, Spiritual Guide) to discuss the healing themes of friendship, truth, and courageous communications in soul-based relationships.
May this podcast episode hold something beneficial for you and your own experiences.
Erika Elmuts's passion is awakening souls to the magic of who they are, what they are here to do, and to live the life they were designed to live. Her awakening began when she personally experienced her own healing of an "incurable" disease, which ignited a passion for sharing with others the incredible possibilities of the human body to heal itself through physical, emotional and spiritual practices.

Are you a teacher or a student in your everyday life?
Notice which answer comes to mind immediately.
Look at the patterns of behavior you exhibit regularly and unconsciously: are you answering others' questions often or seeking information regularly?
Which direction do you tend to go in a room full of people: are you a speaker or a listener?
Confession: This is actually a trick question. You are BOTH a teacher and a student. You have the gifts of speaking and listening. You have the expertise to share and digest. You are equipped to play both roles: giving and receiving, offering and accepting. They are a balancing act within that we bring to the world.
The answer you choose first will reveal what voice is louder in your Being: your Soul voice or your Ego-mind voice. And before rushing to any judgments or conclusions that one is "better" than the other, keep in mind that both are necessary and valuable. Both are parts of you.
Teaching is a service that we offer to others looking for wisdom, understanding, and new information about themselves. Teaching is giving.
Studying is being open to new information and willing to apply it to life for greater growth and balance. Studying is receiving.
We often lean to one role over the other unconsciously because it is more comfortable, or more empowering, or more of a natural fit. Yet we must not lose sight of the need to balance both giving and receiving for our greatest possible growth. We are gifted with both abilities and have the power to use them for the highest good for All.
Honor your wise Soul as a teacher with qualifications, experience, knowledged and gifts to offer. Honor all who are willing and open to be students of your wisdom.
Honor your wise Self for being an open student eager to learn new information and expand beyond a known comfort zone. Honor your teachers for all they give to you.
Both parts of you are needed and essential. Both are gifts you can offer and share. Both have the potential to elevate you to higher levels of self-knowledge and personal empowerment.
What do YOU as a Teacher look like in the Real World:
- Teaching classes on a topic that brings you joy naturally
- Sharing tutorials and how-tos on a blog or website
- Offering additional insights in everyday conversations
- Writing "just because"
- Nurturing and encouraging growth in others
What do YOU as a Student look like in the Real World:
- Seeking answers willingly to any topic of personal interest
- Scheduling sessions with other practitioners
- Attending conferences around a passion
- Reading "just because"
- Planting seeds in any area of life and nurturing them for growth
Most likely both of these lists connect to your area of expertise and growing interests.
For today, simply hold the intention to grow in both areas. Balance yourself internally with the knowingness that you are a Master at giving and receiving. Honor yourself as a Master who is expanding and growing in each role.
You are gifted with the wisdom of teaching and the wisdom of learning.
Go out there and SHINE.

The last Mercury retrograde of 2018 is an opportunity to reflect on what you have been learning at both a human level and a soul level over this past year. Mercury RX moves from 13 degrees Sagittarius on November 16 back to 27 degrees Scorpio on December 7, so we are urged to apply the brakes as the last two months of 2018 complete a healing cycle.
Mercury is being squared by Neptune in Pisces at 13 degrees, and then receives an invigorating conjunction from both Jupiter and the Sun in Sag at 4 degrees on November 27 and 28 - wowza!
Mercury in Sagittarius is showing us new pathways and possibilities from higher realms, yet the retrograde is a time of integration and allowing the energies to come in fully and completely. We'll talk about how to consciously use this Mercury RX period for your soul's growth so you can trust big as the Universe continues to support your next dreams. Stay open!

planet, but less than 1% of the population is aware of their
Most people have no idea that their innate power is in consciously working with
their own energy.
Everything is energy.
As you understand more about the different energies that
exist all around you, you begin to change your life, improve your manifestation
abilities, experience new levels of success, end karmic patterns, reduce
frustration and limiting belief systems, and open up to more happiness, joy, and
You become more conscious and more powerful.

If you're a healer, teacher, expert, or guide, you may know this topic all too well: Have you ever struggled with sharing your work and books in the world?
Yep - it's normal to feel that way, especially if it's a new venture or you're just figuring out the style that works for you. And even if you have been doing this for awhile, you may still hate promoting your business because it's just not your thing.
I have guidance for you in this show to approach promotion in a different way that will hopefully alleviate some anxiety and change your feelings about putting yourself out there more.
New show for awake and conscious entrepreneurs, authors, healers, experts, and teachers! Inspiring, real world stories every week about clients, readers, business and books to support building your dream career.

1. Am I honoring and respecting myself in all ways? Do my relationships reflect that back to me?
The inner world reflects the outer world. Successful on-going relationships continually grow with us. Successful temporary relationships take us to a new place and gently set us down on its shore. Relationships that make us uncomfortable in any way reflect an inner discomfort with Self as the issue has come to our awareness for purposes of growth, and to evolve it. All relationships are gifts.
2. Am I actively expressing myself creatively?
Creative self-expression is your birthright. It ebbs and flows in a natural flow of expansion, retraction, give, and release. Creativity may also be a very private and inner world that requires no external validation or sharing. Even if the creativity is not taking full physical form, the intention to create may be active and alive.
3. Am I making time to listen to myself every day?
Peaceful moments with your soul feeds your life force. Take a few minutes every day to be silent and hear your Self on deeper levels. Staring at waves, the slow-moving sky, a swaying tree branch or a bird in flight can instantly connect you to nature's beautiful silent ways.
4. Am I trusting my gut, my instincts and my intuition on a regular basis?
Inner knowingness is direct and instant, yet the mind can chime in and skillfully override instincts. Continually developing and trusting gut reactions will create greater life ease. Look back on other instances when you trusted yourself fully and see where those decisions led you. Develop the practice more everyday.
May the answers to these questions bring you exactly the guidance you need right now.

Your aura is imprinted with a unique combination of energies based on your moment, location, and date of birth. Just like with astrology, the Human Design System is a way to understand your energy field and how to move through life with a greater sense of Self.
After learning your natal astrology chart, you may be interested in going deeper with understanding your unique energy imprint. This show is a special introduction to the Human Design System and how you are meant to be different than everyone else.
The Human Design System is a synthesis of ancient and modern sciences, and has proven to be a valuable tool for human understanding.
Human Design is a combination of knowledge from astrology, numerology, I-Ching, chakras, Kabbalah, and hexagram that creates accurate personal energy insights into WHO YOU ARE in this lifetime.

Every week, you'll find at least new new astrology and energy updates over on my new YouTube channel. I've only been on YouTube for 6 months, and it has been wonderful to reach 15K+ subscribers in a short amount of time - thank you! I appreciate you connecting with me over there as I absolutely love creating and sharing videos with you about astrology updates, learning your natal chart, weekly energy messages, business development tips, and more. (Come over and check it out if you haven't yet.)
As the Sun moves into Scorpio, you are guided to enter an inner sanctuary where your soul's whispers can become louder. The veil between dimensions is thin right now, so you can connect with energies and messengers in other realms with greater ease, as long as you can tune into the intuitive messages that are calling to you.
Scorpio energy is intense from now until the end of October with four planets in the sign of transformation. In Monday's podcast, I guide you through a simple visual that helps you stay open to the messages right now. Listen here.
The journey through Scorpio begins with the lower consciousness of the Scorpion, but has the potential to rise up as the energies push fear to be transformed into a higher energy field. The Sun and Venus are at the beginning of Scorpio, yet Mercury and Jupiter are completing their passages through this sign shortly, offering you a new outlook on where you have been healing your soul's imprints deeply. More to share with you in Wednesday's podcast about the metamorphosis that Scorpio guides us through as we tap into deeper power and greater purpose with this astrology sign. Listen to this episode here.
I hope these insights help with anything you may be moving through until the end of October. The energy will shift as Mercury moves into Sagittarius and Venus retrograde slides back into Libra - a bit of relief from the intensity.
