With the recent rise of feminine energy across the planet, it’s causing some discomfort in our masculine-dominated society. We aren’t used to two opposites peacefully existing in the west and from this issue sprung the buzzword “balance”.
Self-punishing serves as a guise for an issue that many of us face: lack of self-worth. Did I really want to work out until couldn’t stand? No. Did the years of emotional neglect create a wound that I had no idea how to heal? Yes. Taking time to heal led me to see this issue for what it really was - a turn away from the truth.
When you honor yourself first thing in the morning, it sends a powerful message to the universe. A meditation practice is so much more than just quiet time, it helps you cut through your human experience to hear the silent call of your highest purpose.

I used to think that I had to see a healer or a mystic for all of my answers. My meditation practice to calm my mind morphed into a way for me to connect with my soul and hear the messages it wanted to give me. Everything that we seek is within, if we are quiet enough to hear it.
“I’m sorry” used to end every sentence I spoke. While I knew that I shouldn’t apologize all the time, my energy still stayed in that frequency. Once I committed to shifting my energy, I found a deep need to protect it from giving my power away with statements like, “I’m sorry”.
The 21st century is the age of energy. The affliction of the 21st century is anxiety. In order to live the lives we want, we have to start looking at anxiety for what it really is: an energetic disturbance.
When we don’t process our emotions, they create an energy inside of us. This energy attracts more and more of the same lesson until we finally release the energy by feeling it fully.
