Turquoise: This vibrant blue-ish green-ish crystal has been one of the greatest healers for centuries. For the ancient Egyptian inside you, this legendary stone was a protector of King Tut and Cleopatra. Or to feed the Native American you may have been in a past life, she was a healing tool and a sacred stone that linked a connection between heaven and Earth. She is a personal protector, a healer, a spiritual beauty, a good-luck charm for many ancient and modern cultures. Hold her in the palm of your hand or place her on your third eye while you meditate and all her energetic vibrations to gift you with a strong shield and the highest vibration of love, luck, and healing. 

 

Emerald:  Breath in positivity and love. Breath out negativity and whatever doesn't serve you with the power of the stone of May. Emerald's green rays emit successful and abundant love. Her power holds the desire to give love to not only others but also to your own self. Plus, don't be surprised if her energy brings people into your electromagnetic energy field who want to give you more love, as well. Allow her spiritual vibration to remind you to welcome more positive people and experiences while simultaneously letting go of negative people and experiences.

Mantras + Affirmations: (NEW for May)

I am an uplifter

because... you are!

you know that you there are many beings

that you've made smile

laugh

brought tears of joy

and they feel better, just with your presence

remind yourself of that essence

I see the light in my heart

Brightening the darkness my mind sees 

When you're vibrations are low: sad, upset, depressed

Close your eyes

And focus on the center of your chest

your heart

and listen

visualize the light inside beaming

I fly up as the observer

In any situation that doesn't serve you

that doesn't make you feel good

that makes you feel "less than" in any way

fly up and look at this situation with a bird's eye view

disconnect your energetic cords from this situation

knowing full well that this is not you... and does not deserve to be part of you

part of your story

see it from an outside lens

that sees in your heart

you always mean well

I surrender

Take a deep breath in

exhale all the air out

You do not need to find the solution

you do not need to control the situation

all you need to do 

is let go

Magic Challenge: May

Write a contract to... your soul

in your personal journal.

What do you need for yourself to feed your soul daily?

Isn't it rather easy to meet the needs of others, but challenging to meet your own? Do you find yourself leaving your own agenda on the back burner in order to complete a task for another? 

The verbal contract we make with our fellow humans gives us a sense of urgency to "keep our word" in order to maintain the peace + make them happy. Gaw! Our souls are screaming every time we do this... because it's just as -- no, no, it's MORE important for you to meet the needs of your own in order to keep the peace and happiness within. There's great wisdom in the flight attendants advice to place our own oxygen mask on first before assisting others. Seriously... it's hard to help anyone if you're depleted. 

On the recent Q+A podcast, Allie brought to light her personal contract to her soul to hold herself accountable for doing what makes her feel most aligned. For example: write 5 poems a day and learning 3 new recipes a week.

Now -- you may be one of the rarities who is able to uphold your commitment to meet all your internal needs as well as others needs. Heck, you may even have a precise self-care routine and never let anything interfere with it. Wonderful! This exercise is still for you, because as we're all expanding and improving beings... there's always SOMETHING we'd like to do more of. (Also... what's your secret?)

Write a poem a day

Create a new plant-based high protein recipe a week

Practice another language for 30 minutes a day

Deep meditation 1 hour+ every single day

Visualize your future for 20 minutes a day  

Practice yin yoga every night

Dedicate time to do absolutely nothing but stare at a fountain or a tree for 30 minutes a day

Above are only examples that popped into my mind on a whim -- hmmm... probably because they're all things I know would bring my inner being so much joy, and she'd like for me to dedicate time to -- but I always allow other tasks to take priority. 

I prefer to write in my personal journal -- my baby -- my book that holds my own spiritual energy in this present moment along with her immense sentiment. 

Here are a few guidelines to make this challenge easier:

1.  This is a contract for the month of may. At the top write:

(YOUR NAME) 

Contract to My Soul 

for MAY

2. Keep it short and focus on 1-2 routines you realistically have the air to do for yourself daily. The more challenging, the more challenging it will be to commit -- keep that in mind, though it is tempting to be overly ambitious -- you want to end the month celebrating! 

3. WHY are you doing this? After you decide what you will focus on, write down your "WHY" -- the most honest reason you need to commit to this for your soul. Consider positive outcomes that will likely happen when you do this daily for a month.

4. Sign it! Yes, sign your beautiful signature... maybe date it too to like super proficient. 

5. And feel free to post it in the secret FB group. Share it with a friend to hold you accountable. Knowing someone else's eyes has seen makes you feel a little more accountable on a personal level.

Mantras + Affirmations: April

A chant for the remover of obstacles…

eh hem, Ganesha:

Position yourself into a comfortable easy seat with your legs crossed.

Spine tall (even against a wall).

Place both hands over your heart. 

Visualize the image of Ganesha at your third eye.

Repeat.

Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha

Translation: salutations to the remover of obstacles -- (aka Ganesha).

Chant this mantra allowing your mind and body to release any anxiety or stress and fall into a state of pure zen and contentment. 

Repeat in your mind, out loud, or listen to Deva Prema chant this 108 times. 

Sanskrit mantra for anxiety

After you rise with the sun

stretch

sit up

and repeat the following Sanskrit mantra first thing in the morning to release or prevent anxiety from arising during the day

Om Ram Ramaya Namaha

This mantra manifests positive thoughts and feelings. 

And releases negative energies that keep our vibrations low. 

Feeling anxious about an event coming in the near future? Repeat this to conquer it!

English Mantra for Anxiety

When the event that brings you anxiety or stress occurs, 

repeat

This is only a paper tiger

Paper tiger: someone who at first glance seems to be in charge but who, on closer examination, is completely powerless. (vocabulary.com)

A reminder that that thought is not you, not a part of you, has nothing to do with you. It is a distraction to lower your vibration. But it has nothing to do with you unless you create the story that it does. You are the ultimate writer of your story. Is that thought that is bringing a sense of dissatisfaction, anxiety, unease, unworthiness really worth it? Paper tigers aren't as quick as you, just so you know.

For the Bad Day

Take a deep breath in

hold

exhale all the air out

Take another deep breath in

hold

exhale all the air out

Take your deepest breath of the day in

hold it (for longer)

and exhale all the air out of your lungs

repeat

This is not a bad life, just a bad day that will go away.

Magic Challenge: March

44 minutes a day

Did you know... if you read 45 minutes a day, you may end up reading one book a week! (Something we learned while interviewing Jim Kwik about the power of learning to learn).

So... we're going to twist this idea (Allie + Raquelle style) using our lucky angel number of 44 as the goal time for reading every single day to read a book a week in the month of March.

Finishing 4 books this month... 

Join us! 

44 minutes a day to do something that helps expand your mind and soul. 

We want to not only read, but do one more thing every single day -- and spend 44 minutes (at least) doing it. 

YOGA!

Or split the two on busy days. 22 minutes each. 

Hey, at least we did it... accomplishing any challenge on most days makes us feel like we've won the day... the month. 

Here are other ideas you may want to try for 44 minutes a day.

Nature Walk

Hike

Meditate

Write

Journal

Blog

Paint

Dance

Film

Take Pictures

Edit Pictures

Stare Off into The Distance... because, why not?

write it in your journal

Make a personal declaration to yourself choosing one (or two at most... don't overwhelm yourself) of something that you want to dedicate 44 minutes to everyday. 

Something that nourishes your mind and soul. 

Something that makes you come alive and feel aligned.

make a soul tribe declaration of the action(s) you will commit to for 44 days

This is, of course, optional... but if you're open to it. We'd love to hear what you're committing yourself to for the next 31 days.

PS -- you do not have to start March. Start anytime you see this or a day that fits best with your schedule. 

PPS -- if you miss a day... THAT'S OKAY! We're not perfect. We may accidentally miss too. But we'll still be happy that most days we committed to this, because otherwise.... we wouldn't.

  18. What one or two actions could you do this week to nurture your answer for number 17?

Intuition

You knew it.

You knew that they were not telling the full truth.

You knew you shouldn’t have gone for him/her.

You knew your grandma was hiding the cookies.

But…

You wanted to trust them.

So you ignored what you knew.


Your wise intuition is not just a nudge you feel or that uneasy feeling in your gut. Your intuition is the sixth sense that guides you in the right direction. She is your best and most honest non-physical friend that gifts us many signs to follow the right path. (Side note: gentlemen… feel free to replace all she's + hers with he's + his).

 

And if you listen carefully, you may save yourself a lot of grief and uncertainty.

What are you ignoring right now or who are you giving the benefit of the doubt to?

We all have our own unique way of tapping and tuning in to listen to that voice.

Some may get that strong feeling in their gut on most occasions. Others may experience her voice more strongly in their heart. Some may get ideas. Some may hear the voice in music. Some may feel strong gusts of winds. Or goosebumps -- eh hem, “truth-bumps”.


And the more often you listen, the louder she becomes. And the other voice… that silly ego of yours…

 

Softens

Quiets

And becomes a bit more distant.

 

You may think she’s a little offended you listened to the other voice.

But she’ll never be offended. Even when you can’t hear her, she will always whisper helpful notes... even as the other voice is screaming. 

And yes, there are some conscious beings that have her dialed in at most every moment. But were they born this way? Most likely not. They were likely heavily influenced by the noise of society too... stirring feelings of guilt, shame, jealousy, sadness, depression and any other toxic feeling brewing inside. However, they had to train themselves to shift their mindsets to tune in to what their really feeling with a conscious detox to get rid of all negative energies that no longer serve them. 

 

Here are five lessons we’ve learned from Masters along our exploration to connect and listen to our intuition... especially in times when we need her most. 

 

ONE

Meditate.

Walk in nature.

Touch the leaves on the trees.

Smell the flowers.

Observe the flowers. 

Listen to the birds.

Observe the birds. 

Mindfully sip your coffee or tea.

Journal.

If you can’t hear her when you’re seeking an answer… if your mind is too noisy and crowded… you just need some space. A breath of fresh mental air.

Slow down.

Give yourself permission to calm your hyper mind for a few moments. Get still. Give yourself permission to be still.

Imagine all the noise floating out of your head... out of the room... tell it you’ll get back to it later, because this is a time for you.

Breathe.

And allow yourself a moment to just be.

Maybe… you’ll hear her.

 

TWO

Never. Ever. As best you can...

Go to bed angry or in negative spirits.

It may be easier to listen and feel your intuition when your emotions are light. When your body feels lighter.

Anger, despair, jealousy, guilt, regret, shame or any emotions that do not make you feel good, are weighted feelings. These burdens may increase in weight as you sleep. Even if you “slept on it” and feel fine as you rise. You only slept with it.

Allowing these feelings to stir, creating more negative thoughts in your subconscious... Creating a shadow that will come to the surface further down the road. A shadow that covers the voice and light of your intuition.

Talk them out with a friend.

Write all that negative energy in your journey.

Think of things you are looking forward to in the near future. 

Say out loud what you are TRULY grateful for. 

Place your energy elsewhere so it doesn’t build a bed in your mind as you sleep.

 

THREE

Becoming in tune with your body’s relationship with food. She’ll be louder the more in tune you are with -- not only your mind -- but your body too.

Learn to know what foods make you feel good.

There are so many tools that are used to discover what foods work best for your body -- depending on our personality.

Food Journaling. If this means you need to start food journaling to bring awareness to your body’s reactions 30-60 minutes after a meal so you can avoid another bloating, fatigued or moody episode… then you’ll learn, maybe that type of nut butter doesn’t make you feel good after all. It will take time. I mean… who wants to eat the same food every day? So you’ll discover so much about your body’s relationship with food. And it will change over time. But food journaling is a good start, and it becomes a successful daily practice for some people. We’ve noticed the majority of those people end up becoming the most in tune with what works for their body... and what does not. Journaling is one of the most powerful and approachable tools to connect with the guidance of your body and your intuition.

 

Practice Mindful Eating. If this is not a concept you’re familiar with, it may be the most simple practice for you to start with. Simply, choose just one meal a day -- breakfast, lunch, or dinner -- where you choose to purposefully bring awareness of each bite of each meal without distractions. No TV. No books. Maybe… no humans.

Just you.

Your meal.

Savoring each and every bite.

Chew slowly.

Notice the taste and consistency.

Notice how much you enjoy (or don’t enjoy) this meal.

As you mindfully chew eat the bite, listen to your body. Listen to the guidance within during and after your meal. If you didn’t feel your best, you’ll instinctively know not to reach for that meal again.  


FOURTH

This is important.

Very important.

Believe she is always there. This will never fail you. But truly…

Believe.

We really can’t provide steps to make this happen. With all the practice of tuning in and listening… one day.. you will.

 

FIFTH

This is may be the most important.

Very important.

Listen.

You may hear of feel an answer your ego may not agree with. But you KNOW it’s right.

Don’t suppress it. Ask it. Ask if that is your ego talking or YOU. If she gives you the answer again, and you feel that that is right -- even if it’s not what you want. Take action under her guidance.

If it’s hard to listen, you may need to clear thought space by circling back to the first lesson above, but listen.
 

She’s ready to be heard more frequently. Don’t dismiss the truth-bumps or any other feeling you’ll receive after reading this. She may even be giving you some sort of sensation now… listen.

 

Feel free to ask any questions below.

Clean Your Room + Home of Unwanted Energy

SAGE

We soak up tried and true ancient rituals. Even what may seem "woo-woo" to most modern day beings, we see it as a beautiful ancestral wisdom we choose to honor and carry on. Dried white sage has been used for thousands of years, particular by Native Americans, to clear old, unwanted energies and dark forces that a space may be harboring. Almost every night or after new visitors leave, we mindfully sage our whole home saying out loud, "what's mine is mine, what's yours is yours, please release all energies that no longer serve my highest good in this space." 

SALT EVERY CORNER

Salt is an absorber of negative energies that can be used to cleanse your home. Sprinkle salt in the corners of every room and sweep it up every few weeks. We like to use thick Himalayan sea salts -- (because they are more aesthetically pleasing for our space). 

LIGHT CANDLES AND INCENSE

The powerful aromas of candles and incense will lift your spirit immediately, releasing negative energy that may be attached to you. We highly recommend jasmine or nag champa. It's extra powerful to light them around the new moon. We have them placed in selected areas around our home. However, some people prefer to dedicate a altar of high vibes where they may chant mantras and positive affirmations to ignite the space. 

CLEANSING CRYSTALS

Bathe crystals in the sun for a few hours or soak them in salt water overnight to clear their energies. Place them around the house in different areas, allowing their vibrations to sweep away whatever is not serving you... what energy is not yours. Plus... crystals are gorgeous. 

THE SONGS OF POTS + PANS

Prayers

Prayer of service:

Dear Universe,

Thank you for aligning me with my soul’s purpose and guiding me to live from love in each moment. As the new year reigns in, please show me the path you would have me take. Show me the way in which I can be of service to you and have the maximum impact of love and healing on the world.

Forgiveness Prayer:

Dear universe,

Thank you for healing my mind of any thoughts, beliefs, and energies that are no longer serving me. Please lift my thought process up to yours so I may see through the eyes of unconditional love. Help me to forgive and let go of anything I may be holding in my heart so I can be released back to my true self. 

Grounding Prayer:

Dear Universe,

I am grateful to be in my natural state of being where I feel centered and limitless. Thank you for bringing me clarity in all areas of my life so that I may align to the vibration of my most empowered self. As I surrender my resistance, miracles immediately flow into my experience. 

Financial Abundance:

Dear Universe,

Thank you for aligning me to the vibration of financial abundance. With each passing moment, I become a magnet for wealth. I surrender any blockages or old beliefs I may have about money, because I recognize that the universe is my provider. I am fully taken care of. There is plenty for everyone, and it is time for me to receive all that I desire or better.
