Manifest with Lion’s Gate Portal 8/8

Today is called Lion’s Gate in astrology (8/8) and it happens when the Sun is in Leo and it aligns with the star Sirius, Earth, and Orion’s Belt.

It is supposed to be a good day for manifesting and here are 2 ways to tap into this energy:

1. Meditate and imagine a lion next to you as your guide. Ask what you need to know right now or what you need to know to manifest your dreams. Work with a Lion as your animal guide and tap into its energy to help you manifest your goals.

(You can also listen to the Animal Guide meditation on the Bonus page for my book, Tend To Your Vibration.)

    2. Write one, some, or all of the following questions, then spend 3 to 5 minutes breathing deeply, then free write anything that comes up?

      • How can I create more physical/emotional/mental strength?
      • How can I step more fully into my personal power?
      • How can I be more assertive in ___________ (certain area of your life)?
      • How can I be the dominant force in my life?
      • How can I embody a regal presence?

      Enjoy this powerful, high vibe energy today!

      The energy goes until the 12 of August so feel free to do these exercises before then if you don’t have time today.

      Introducing: Tend To Your Vibration – a guidebook

      Tend To Your Vibration a guidebook

      Take a moment and sit up tall, do some shoulder rolls, and take some deep breaths through your nose. Now imagine white light all around you and envision an animal next to you as your guide. Finish by saying something nice to yourself and smile.

      Notice how you feel. Hopefully, you feel a little bit better than you did before. Enjoy these feelings. This is an example of tending to your vibration.

      Your vibration is your emotional energy. Your vibration changes depending on how you feel and what you are focusing on. Your vibration is high when you are feeling good and trusting that life is working out for you. Your vibration is low when you are criticizing yourself and feeling stuck.

      Your emotional energy acts as a magnet that draws more of what you are feeling into your life. Your vibration is created by you, your thoughts, how you feel physically, and what you spend time focusing on.

      Basically, your thoughts create your emotions which create your vibration. When you tend to your vibration, you can begin to truly enjoy each moment while creating a life you love.

      The word “tend” means to care for, look after, or give one’s attention to. This guidebook will help you tend to your emotions, environment, and vibration like you would a garden or your home. You will do this using nature, breath, thoughts, imagination, and energy.

      The techniques shared are simple ways to help you enjoy life more and draw more things to enjoy into your life. They are a mix of my creations, ancient techniques from my yogic studies, tried and true life coaching exercises, along with energy work from my experience as an intuitive mentor.

      You will become a magnet for your desires.

      Tending to your vibration looks different for everyone. I share what has worked for me. Along the way, you will discover what works for you. All of it will help you become a more authentic version of yourself.

      You will learn how to empower yourself and shift your energy to a higher vibration. If you commit to working on the tips and exercises, you will feel a massive positive shift in the flow and experience of your life. 

      This work will help you enjoy life more and feel more confident in the choices you make. I am not saying you won’t have bad days. It’s important to feel all of your feelings.

      The goal of the work I am sharing is to help you learn how to handle the ups and downs of life with more grace and ease. You will bounce back quicker and learn to catch yourself going negative faster.

      You will learn how to tune out the world around you and tune into your inner wisdom. You will have the resources to change your mood, your thoughts, your breath, and your life.

      Your life might change, or you might change how you look at your life. Or both! Either way, you will feel empowered by the work you do and happy that you have committed to bringing positive change into your life.

      Take a moment and thank yourself for taking this time for yourself.

      You might want to create a special place in which to do this work. This could be a room, a chair, a nook. Maybe just a basket or tray that will contain the tools you want around you as you work through this guide like candles, matches, incense, essential oils, etc. Make it yours.

      You might like to get a journal to write down your reflections and responses or use the printable worksheets I created for you by visiting the Book Bonus section on my website.

      There is a positive affirmation at the end of each lesson that you might like to incorporate into your life or possibly repeat when you are practicing the lessons. Notice the ones that make you feel really good and repeat them often.

      Have fun with this guide! Think of it as a toolbox you can use to help you get unstuck, pumped up, relaxed, goal-oriented, and so on.

      When you are first starting, you might like to keep your efforts private or share them with the world. Honor your feelings around how you share the time you take for yourself.

      You will have different needs at different times, and this guide will feel like a comforting space to come back to help you tune in and remember who you really are.

      Get ready! I hope you enjoy this journey of creating positive shifts and receiving abundance in every area of your life by tending to your vibration.

      You are worthy of enjoying life, feeling good, and manifesting your dreams!

      4 Tips to Make Your Mornings Magical

      Mornings can be magical!

      It is so easy to have your alarm go off, grab your phone, roll out of bed, get coffee, get cranky, and then wonder why your day went the way it did.
      Especially after during this wacky pandemic! 

      If you are looking to put some magic into your mornings or your kids are going back to school like mine are and you need a magical morning routine then this post is for you!

      I used to hate mornings.

      That means I know things have to be quick, easy, and fun in the morning in order for me to do them.

      These tips will help you feel guided, sparkly, intuitive, and free-spirited!

      If you have more to add, please share in the comments and spread the magical morning love!

      4 Tips to Make Your Mornings Magical

      1. Ask for Guidance
        • Before you get out of bed, even before you open your eyes, you can ask for guidance from the divine. You can connect with God, Universe, Spirit, Mother Earth, or any other way you address a higher power or force. Then simply ask: “Can you please guide me, help me, lead me, move me, show me?” Any variation or all of those. Then stay open to receiving guidance during the day.
      2. Sun Breath or Solar Breath
        • Also called the Pingala Nadi Breath. Your right nostril is connected to the solar nadi (or channel) in your subtle energy body which is associated with vitality plus masculine and warming energy. Use the first two fingers on your left hand to close your left nostril. Begin breathing deeply through your right nostril. Practice for 3 rounds or 1 or 3 minutes. Then release the left nostril and breathe deeply through both nostrils. Pause and notice how you feel. This breath is featured in my Free Spirit Guidebook.
      3. Pick an animal guide for the day.
        • You can use the printable animal guide oracle cards that come as a bonus with my Free Spirit Guidebook to shuffle and pick a card as shown in the video. You can also ask for an animal to show up during your day or for the name or vision of one to pop into your mind. Once you see or think of one, then look up the meaning and energy associated with that animal and figure out how that energy can help you in your life right now.
      4. Sun Salutations.
        • Face east and greet the sun! Moving your body is a great way to start your day. It helps you get out of your head and release stress. If you are not familiar with Sun Salutations then simply watch this video I made a while back sharing different variations to get your morning started right. ***For a simple pick me up you can stand with your palms touching in front of your heart, inhale and lift your arms overhead, exhale and fold forward and touch or reach for your toes (bend your knees slightly), then inhale and roll all the way up, and finish with your palms back at your heart. Do this 3 times and start your day!

      Just picking one of these things to do each morning will help make your morning magical!

      Sun Breath, Sun Signs & Sun Salutations

      Sun Salutations

      Sun Salutations are the perfect simple yoga routine to help you move your body and feel energized.

      The full set is not for everyone so I created a video to show the variations you can use to add this to your routine.

      You can do this when you wake up in the morning, mid-morning, or help beat an afternoon slump.

      You technically don’t even need a yoga mat and I just love that.

      If you are new to Sun Salutations, then you will probably follow the video for a while and then you will be able to start doing them on your own.

      Solar Breath

      You can start or finish Sun Salutations with Solar Breath. You can also do this as a stand-alone morning practice.

      • Sit tall
      • Close your left nostril with the first two fingers of your left hand
      • Inhale slowly and deeply through the right nostril
      • Exhale slowly through your right nostril
      • This is one cycle.
      • Repeat 8 to 10 times or for 1 to 3 minutes.
      • Allow your eyes to close.
      • Pause after and take some deep breaths through both nostrils.
      • Notice how you feel.

      The right nostril is connected to the Sun and your Pingala Nadi. Your solar (pingala) nadi (channel) is in your subtle energy body.

      This breath is warming and energizing. This is also a breath featured in my book, Tend To Your Vibration.

      Sun Signs

      You might like to dedicate your practice and/or your breath to embody the energy of the current Sun Sign.

      Simply figure out which sun sign we are in at the moment by the dates listed below. Then read the description and see where you can benefit from that energy in your life.

      Set your intention to embody that energy at the beginning of your Sun Salutation practice and bring your mind back to it at the end.
