Perseverance & Tenacity

What if these qualities are key in reaching deeper states of connection and intimacy?  What if they can even heal our health – and heart?

Sharing from the depth and purity of who we really are – warts and all – was the topic of last Sundays Tarot Temple.

Do you allow yourself to ask for support?  Are you suspicious when someone asks for support from you?

photo-1554355204-1891654d7de1Delving into the purity of being – that place within where we allow ourself to be seen for who we truly are – surely is where deeper states of intimacy exists.  Does deep intimacy call you?  Do you relegate that for just one person in your life?

Our last Tarot Temple this past Sunday was about perseverance and tenacity.  After a very challenging week – of things not working, too many things to do, what “saved” me, was dropping my list for a whole day and going to the hot springs to soak, and the sauna to shed an overwhelmed tired mind and body.  I emerged renewed, and reconnected within.

What came to me from having the courage to let go of the pressure and story I put on myself to perform and all that goes with that – is it’s accompanying options/opposites:  developing perseverancethe ability to continue no matter the odds, and tenacitybuilding true determination and strength from taking time to let go, and get re-centered with my inner guidance.

Stepping into our Tarot Temple Sundays, I love how this shows up in our beautiful and insightful group as well. Amazing how life is continuously reflecting back to us our internal state for “better or worse.”

In that session, we uncovered the tenderness within us, the purity really – that place that calls us to strip down our inner barriers, to dissolve our shielded and guarded heart… and allow ourselves to be seen. Witnessed for what we may be embarrassed or ashamed of, or otherwise don’t allow others to see. We may hold a story that “when Mr./Miss Right comes”… then it will be safe to be seen.  Really?  Why wait?

The opportunity to lay down our guard, put aside our shield, and tenderly, nakedly be seen is what calls us now. We need not wait.  The time is now. It sure feels good to stop postponing the refuge and resilience that comes with it.

May we let go of assigning love to others outside of self, and claim it now for ourself – and gain willingness to be seen in all our conditions.  This is what came out of our Tarot Temple today.  It feels like breathing a deep breath of fresh air, of allowing a new season to bud and bloom from within, and to invite what we want the most to manifest in our lives:  deep love and true happiness.  It’s universal.

photo-1477531210390-1fcc48835750So I will leave you now with the same question I asked everyone in closing from our group that day: would you be willing to ask for support from at least one person in your life today, in the opening of your heart?  Yes, it’s a potential risk, and we face rejection, the fear of appearing weak, and a host of other stories that tell us “I don’t need anyone”… though is our inner dialogue always true?

In this week, may we expose our tender heart from the basis of safety within, where we have our own back – and admit, yes… I do need love, and I’m willing to be seen – all of me, naked, warts and all.

Drop me a line and let me know what happens when you open yourself to love this week. Is it calling you, from within you?  What risk are you willing to take to be seen in your purity, to share love’s longing to connect?

Much love dear hearts – may we persevere in love, and strengthen our tenacity for the many challenges of life – while not forsaking love along the way.  Viola, tuning in, I find its always been right there inside of me.

How precious to share with you from this tender place.

Are You In The Closet Too?

amy_her place-00416My husband announced to me a few days ago that it’s high time I come out of the closet.

Yes, it’s true, I’ve been hiding something about myself for a very long time.  I guess I haven’t thought that people would get this about me, they would think it strange, or otherwise persecute what seems odd.

So – here it is – yes, I admit it… please forgive the rather new-age lingo, though it best explains it:  I’m a channeler, or what some people call a psychic – or person who see’s visions, has prophetic dreams, and feels things on an intense level that is usually disturbingly accurate.  I don’t love those words when referred to about myself (channeler, etc)… think of it as the ability to see, hear, feel, and sense in ways that appear other worldly to those who don’t.  For those of us who do, it’s obvious – even when undeveloped.

Have you also been living in the closet of heightened sensitivity – wondering if what you experience is “normal” – or concerned you’ve gone a bit coo coo?  Do you often know things before they occur, and say to yourself “I knew that was going to happen”?  Or do you have dreams and visions that come true?
Yes me too, since I was a child.  Time to be out with it.  The world needs us.

So, since it feels great to come out, be me, and let it be known… I know there are many of you who can benefit from being reminded that you’re sane, in an insane world, that has lost sight of what in ancient times was revered.  And, I know some of you would actually like to develop your own innate abilities. Can anyone do it?  We’re all doing it all the time, we just usually don’t know it.  What if we could develop and direct this force and do great good with it?

Claim your super powers, so you can :
-develop your emotional intelligence
-experience greater intimacy with yourself, and in relationships
-cultivate wisdom and understanding
-feel what’s best for you (develop self-trust)
-know what you really want
-know when it’s time for change, and invite transformation
-make choices to wisely guide your life
-do great good for yourself, and for others
-live a purposeful and rich life

Ready to get started?  Here’s my 6 steps to help you move forward with developing your intuitive abilities – your birth right really:
1.  do a detox:  clear your body and mind, empty out so you have space to receive information.  Make quiet and stillness your best friend, this is where messages exist.
2.  meditation:  develop the observer inside of you, so you can tell the difference between what’s actual wisdom and messages, and what’s mental chatter.  Equanimity and consistency is key.
3.  in your meditation, focus your attention between your brows – open your “3rd eye”.
4.  trust the information you receive, go with your first insights.  Avoid over-thinking. It robs intuition.
5.  act upon the messages – this is how they get stronger.
6.  be agenda free:  dedicate yourself to the higher good, and use your abilities only for the good of all.

photo-1506126613408-eca07ce68773It’s similar to learning a language.  The more you practice, the stronger, more clear, and precise it becomes.  And when you submerge yourself in that culture, it’s as if you’re learning by osmosis – you become saturated by it.  Like to experience that for yourself?
Join our Tarot Temple webinar on Sundays.  That’s what we do.  We’re a community and culture, moved by the magic and miracles that happen when intuition leads the way, and we come out of the closet – normalizing what’s natural.

Soon we will have a course ready for you to go deeper in your intuitive development.  Till then, keep practicing, do a private reading with me, and join us in Bali this May.  Together on retreat, we not only learn about body and soul health, yet also  how to healthfully intuitively read, and live our life from this
place, unrestrained!  We’re fully out now!

What Feeds Your Soul?/Ask Dr. Amy/Tarot Temple

 

Hello Dear Lovelies,

Are you in need of a personal message?

In our last Sunday session on Tarot Temple, I listened to the inner world of each persons’ body and soul, bringing personal messages for health, home, life direction, livelihood – and more.

Physical – emotional to spiritual – each individuals guidance, was also for the group. Unique and personalized, souls were seen, tears were shed, messages received, and hearts opened.

d262076a-c96f-49c3-9c25-48442a4013b8Each Sunday has it’s own theme.  The last one was ‘nurture’. A sense of nourishment interweaved the sharings to offer a deeper understanding of the word, reminding us it comes in many forms:  in the richness of relationships, the need for intimacy, and what can transpire when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable (seen really – and in this context – in a group reading).

How are you nurturing yourself? Nourishment is a need we all have.  What do you need to feel well cared for… first from yourself, and in your life?  What does nourishment mean for you?

Here’s a few suggestions for self-nurturing:

  1. Receive your own wisdom. Sit with yourself daily even for just 5 minutes, and listen to your body.
  2. Trust yourself, welcome all your feelings.
  3. Act on your inner guidance – this is how it strengthens.

Home, rest, money, or a mate – may we hear our inner voice, heed it, and follow its call for freedom, love, and beauty… and how it uniquely speaks to you.

Love,

Amy

What Rules Your Life?

jez-timms-112336-unsplash

Hello Hello!

What rules your life?

Whether careening out of control, or masterfully flowing through life’s joys and challenges – or somewhere in between – our (un)conscious commitments determine our experience.  What are you experiencing as a result of either conscious or unconscious commitments?  Ease to challenge, did a series of choices set up what you’re now going through?

Back to Ibiza this past week to move out of our house after subletting it for 8 months, it was a huge and emotional job.  Tired and needing rest, our schedule didn’t really allow us to stop. We had ourselves tightly booked with many commitments that didn’t include allowing for what a big move can bring.  Do you also have (un)conscious commitments that keep you on the move constantly?

Making a mistake on our booked ferry, our unconscious commitment was revealed. Ha – we said to ourselves.  We so needed rest, yet we weren’t allowing for it – so we unconsciously found a way to get that need meet.  Making the commitment conscious, we’ve stayed on sunny warm beautiful Ibiza for a week instead, and slowed right down, unpacked a packed schedule – and made different choices that support our true needs.

How can we harness life’s storms?  And alchemize them into strength and courage?

Gaining a different perspective on our choices and commitments is what we explore on our Tarot Temple/Ask Dr. Amy Sunday sessions, coming up today in just a few hours.

About Our Tarot Reading

joshua-newton-146009-unsplash

Hello Dear Hearts,

Are you seeking solutions to unasked questions inside of you? What are those questions, and what needs answering?  Are you looking for deeper insights into who you are, your life direction, and what you may not share – though long to?   Join us Sunday for Ask Dr. Amy – and bring those questions, while giving them a voice. Share, be read, or just witness.  And most important – be supported – just by being present.

Many of you have worked with me privately over the years with my Intuitive Naturopathic Sessions. This is similar, though in a group.  It’s tarot – without the cards.  Each person who speaks (usually there are 3-4 people in the hour we are together), acts as a “card” –  or voice for the group.  Weaving the wisdom and insights each person reveals, a bigger picture is formed that offers deep and impactful messages for each person in the group.  My job is to listen deeply, and “read” each participant – offering messages – specific to your personal needs.

Last week we started with the screaming child who represented the need to break free and be heard. The next “card” revealed the chariot, and we learned how to get traction where we feel trapped in the small self.  We closed with the insights of the third person who showed us the need to see we always have options, though how we lose them when stuck in our head, disassociated from feeling.  Merging head to heart, we reclaimed our power to make choices, letting go of thinking thinking, and opened up to the power of feeling.  We closed full circle with the playful child emerging as our last card, reminding us to reclaim our innocence, be free, and simply be here – reminding us there are no problems in the present moment.

What will it be this Sunday?  That depends on you.   Be a part of the constellation, speak if you feel drawn, or just witness and be supported as I weave the messages from each “card” into the group – to you personally.

Join us for another powerful, emotionally impactful, and soul moving session, Sunday.  Register below.

Love, Dr. Amy

From Turmoil to Tenacity

miguel-salgado-160276-unsplash

Dearest Reader,

Happy Sunday.

I know none of us are strangers to turmoil – wretched it is – gut wrenching agony.  Though having experienced plenty of it, it teaches me tenacity.

tenacity | təˈnasədē | noun the quality or fact of being able to grip something firmly: the quality or fact of being very determined; the quality or fact of continuing to exist; persistence.

I especially like that last definition “the quality or fact of continuing to exist; persistence.”  After rising up from a very broken place a year and a half ago, I learn to give myself permission to truly be fully here, to take up space, or continue to exist – and therefore persist.

Do you relate, or does this at all sound vague?

The turmoil – heart ache really – of subconsciously believing I don’t have a right to exist, was nothing less than echos of childhood trauma.  I didn’t know it, though I wasn’t fully here.  Hiding, undervaluing myself, and living in turmoil, something in me knew there had to be another way.  I’m so thankful for that inner voice – and following it!

And thank goodness for tenacity.  The ability to dig in and not give up, even when we have no idea how to do it, what to do, or what we’re doing.  To persist – continue to exist – when all odds (especially in the mind), say we should just quit doing what we love, not go for that next challenge that calls our heart, or otherwise crawl under the covers and hide.

Growing my online business, I’m learning to make videos. And is it ever CHALLENGING!!!  Every bit of resistance, self-judgement, and big time perfectionism makes me want to absolutely just quit – and quick.  After sinking a huge amount of money into a promotional process, little did I know – I’d be asked to make many videos for it… oh no, anything but that.  “Ha” says the right to exist. “Poo poo you” says the need to persist.  Yet – in doing so, out of pure stubbornness – persist I have.  It brings me closer in touch with my innate ability to keep excelling, no matter the initial 60 video failure.  I’m learning how to record, facing my fears of not being good enough, and learning to accept myself (again), no matter.  It’s said showing up – is the first step to success.

So turmoil or tenacity?  It’s like asking myself what I’d prefer – drama or just doing it.  I’ll take the second please.

Do you also get stuck because you have trouble moving past self-judgement and the inner critic?  I really understand.  Lets just break it down, learn what we need to learn, not know, and accept where we are. We can only get better from there – and perhaps even fulfill dreams along the way.

Thank you tenacity teacher.  I’ll take you over turbulence and perfectionism any day.

Feeling called to get on with it?  May full commitment – presence and persistence really – be our guide.
“Jumping from failure to failure with undiminished
enthusiasm is the big secret to success.”

Is Your Comfort Zone Killing You?

images (4)

Hello Beloved Reader – whether you know it or not, you are be-loved by me!!!  Why?  Well why not?

This afternoon, our group tarot card reading interweaved a powerful scenario that I’m sure applies to your life as well.

Do you ever feel like there is a scream inside of you that isn’t being heard…. or expressed… by you?  This is what our first “tarot card” participant felt.  (We don’t actually use cards, its me doing the reading, with each participant acting as a “card”.)  What appeared as her cocoon of comfort, was also suffocating – instead of liberating her.  The comfort zone could also be her killer – the death of her growth, liberty, and self-dignity.  Are you being asked to step out and take a risk on what truly calls you?  Is it time?

Our next card – the chariot.  With his hands on the reigns, his image showed what’s possible when we have the discipline to guide that potent force into our greatest empowerment… and also the burden that can occur when we don’t take care of this momentum, and instead get caught up in other peoples needs around us. We learned that it takes discipline to protect the self time and space we need to regenerate, and not flatten all our energy in “supporting” others. Big one!!!

Finally, we learned to let go of thinking so much and being in the head – as we know we must do something different to get different results.  Overthinking = Disconnection from Self.  The playfulness and innocence of the child emerged to show us to BE HERE NOW – trust yourself and life. To let go of control (thinking thinking), and surrender to the unknown, what genuiely excites us, and have faith that through taking care of ourselves, our chariot will move forward – no force needed.  Just take a risk, and break out.

So may we let go, come home to self-time and care – and protect that space – while allowing our frustrations, helplessness, and fears to be held in that something Greater… that liberates, instead of suffocates.  What direction do you choose?  Listening to our body – and ultimately hearing the needs and direction of our soul – may very well take us farther, than force.  May we give death to our comfort zone to find out what else is possible.

Ready?

Join us next Sunday and be read, or be a part of the reading.

My love to you!!!

Amy
