6 Ways to Beat the Holiday Blues!

HolidayIf you’re stressed out or singing the holiday blues these days you are not alone.

This time of year it’s common for people to feel lonely, isolated, stressed out or sad.

Here are 6 ways to shift the holiday blues so you can experience the season with JOY!

1. Disconnect

Social media is a wonderful place to connect but the fact is, not everything you see is real. I call it “the face of Facebook”. Everyone is ‘blessed’, ‘grateful’, having an amazing time, happy and joyful. Of course that’s true for some but everyone is human, has challenges, bad days and situations they don’t share. On the flip side there are rants, judgement, anger and downright nastiness. Although we think we are “connected” we are, in fact, disconnected from ourselves. Disconnect from the illusions and the energy on social media that may be affecting you more than you account for and re-connect with yourself.

2. Meditate

Take 5 or 10 minutes (at the very least) to simply breathe, feel your connection with the earth and your energy flow. Check in with yourself. Reconnect with YOU. Daily meditation during the holidays has a cumulative effect. The more you find time to meditate, the smoother your day will be. You could even take it one step farther and actually set the energy of the holidays for yourself. While in meditation, decide what energy vibration you’d like to experience for a particular day and “set” that day. In fact, try doing it today! Set the energy you’d like to experience for today and see what happens. Call it a practice day and we all know, practice makes perfect.

3. Manage Expectations

There is a lot of pressure during the holiday season. We are expected to find the perfect gift, act a certain way, be somewhere on time, be nice etc. There are a plethora of expectations we are supposed to meet and those expectations from others (and the expectations we have for ourselves) put more pressure on us. How you choose to take part in the holidays is totally up to you. To manage expectations check in with yourself and see what YOU need. If you find yourself responding, going to every party, caving to peer pressure to eat drink and be merry when you don’t feel like it, check in with yourself and just notice if you’re answering to the expectations of others or putting undo pressure on yourself with your own expectations.

4. Release the Ghosts of Holidays Past

The holidays can be a challenging, sad and lonely time of year often times because of holidays past. It is inevitable we will be missing a loved one, stressed out by something that happened and remembering fondly, or not so fondly, holidays long past. When holiday memories come up, acknowledge and embrace them. Notice the feeling that accompanies the memory and acknowledge that too. Once you’ve acknowledged the memory allow it to be released. Release the ghosts of holidays past so you are free and have access to all your energy to create beautiful holiday magic in the present.

5. Let Family be Family

Even the happiest of families has its moments. Someone, whether consciously or unconsciously, might invalidate you, compete with you, boss you around or simply push your buttons. Take a breath and find some neutrality. If things get ugly, meet the situation by taking a deep breath, checking in with yourself and remembering they are engaging you because of their own “stuff”. You don’t need to challenge, fight with, prove yourself or engage them. Your neutrality is you taking the “high road” and helps to defuse the situation. You know that saying “peace on earth, good will towards men”? Why not extend a little of that towards family?

6. Find your Magic and JOY!

Connect with your own unique (and powerful) vibrations of magic and joy. Allow the magic and joy to flow through you. Create magical connections and situations. Don’t simply respond to an invitation, do those things that bring YOU joy and are not simply obligations to family and friends. There is a magical, beautiful world out there filled with joy. Allow yours to flow and surround yourself with it.

During the stressful holiday season reconnect with YOU. Take time to breathe. Manage expectations. Allow others to be where they are. Release the ghosts that haunt you. Connect with those you love who may or may not be family and plan a little holiday magic! Sometimes all it takes is to get up close and personal with yourself and others. Cheers to JOY and Magic!~Shine Your Light Debbie

Reorganizing Your Energy

Energy“It’s not only moving that creates new starting points. Sometimes all it takes is a subtle shift in perspective, an opening of the mind, an intentional pause and reset, or a new route to start to see new options and new possibilities.”~Kristin Armstrong

Today I’m doing a much-needed “energy reorganiziation”. Won’t you join me in creating a new starting point for yourself? Let’s take pause, reset and open our hearts  and minds to new possibilities!

As you may or may not know in addition to clairvoyant healing work I’m a Real Estate Broker . Yesterday I closed a real estate deal that took a more than 10 months to complete. Once the transaction was officially ‘closed’ a wave of relief washed over me and it felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. It was at that very moment I realized how much of my energy I didn’t have access to because it was inextricably tied up in the deal.

What happened in those 10 months is a perfect example of what happens when we resist and try to control or heal those who are not only committed to holding on (not letting go), but choose to punish and blame everyone else in the process without taking any responsibility.

Here is a brief timeline of events. Put the 2 flat on the market in February and basically sold it in 7 days. Gave tenant legal notice to vacate even though at that point he didn’t have a lease. Although the tenant initially agreed to move prior to closing in March, he decided to stop paying rent and stay (as a squatter). Due to the tenant using the already lengthy system to extend his holdover it took more than 8 painful months (in court) to evict him.

Once the tenant was evicted, the buyer chose to punish the seller by not communicating for another month. Apparently she was “mad” it took so long to evict the tenant. (Eviction time-frames are up to the courts and totally out of the sellers control.)  After finally establishing communication, the buyer cancelled the deal. The crazy part is the seller repeatedly offered to let her out of the transaction yet she decided to move forward until our side was ready to close.

There were challenges and lessons in patience at every turn. I realized that for 10 plus months a lot of my energy was caught up in healing the seller, anger at the tenant for not leaving and abusing what is clearly a broken eviction process and frustration with a manipulative buyer who ignored attempts to communicate.

Yes I was angry, impatient, frustrated and in resistance. So much for my zen, peaceful self!

While in the middle of it, I recognized my frustration, anger etc however I did not realize how much of my energy was tied up. This is very common and most times it takes a step away to finally see it. Once it’s seen we have the opportunity to do a little energy reorganizing; including releasing and calling back energy.

For my reorganization, I’m going to call back all the energy that’s still caught up in the deal. I’m going to look at what else or who else I am still healing. I will look to see where I’m angry at not being able to control circumstances beyond my control. I will ask the questions what am I holding on to and/or how am I using the “system” to rationalize my actions? Am I trying to manipulate and control because I’m frustrated?

When you use your experiences to ask questions, you instantly create a shift in your perspective by making it more neutral. You take ownership through acceptance. Looking at yourself first allows you to understand where others might be coming from. It allows you to forgive others for their actions and to forgive yourself for your RE-actions. It allows you to release the energy and pictures that caused you to try and control people or events and go into resistance.

Is there something or someone in your life that’s taking up your energy? Are you in resistance? Are you healing, punishing or blaming others? Wouldn’t you like your energy back so you have more to create with? If so, do a little reorganizing around yourself!

It’s time to create a new starting point, take pause, reset, and open our hearts  and minds to new possibilities!~Shine Your Light Debbie

Happy Thanksgiving from My Heart to Yours!

Turkey

“Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse.”~Henry Van Dyke

Happy Thanksgiving!

Wishing you the best of everything! 

May your heart be filled with love,
your belly filled with food, and your 
soul filled with joy!

It is with gratitude and appreciation I thank you for honoring me and blessing my life with your presence and support. I’m so grateful we can share our journeys because in sharing, no one need ever be alone.

Give thanks to those who are dear to your heart not just on Thanksgiving but every day. Life is so very precious and we need to tell those we love how much we love them. There is no such thing as ‘too much’ love and appreciation.Give thanks for all you have. Appreciating what you already have is abundance. Give thanks with love for when your heart is filled with gratitude and appreciation you will notice an overflowing abundance of love in all that you have and in everything you do.

Happy Thanksgiving!
Thank you for following and reading this blog. Thank you for being in my life! Thank you for providing me with inspiration and continually filling my heart with joyful song as we lift each other up.

Bountiful blessings to you and yours!

Love,
Debbie

Shift Your Attitude to Gratitude!

In honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday in the USA it is time to explore and tune into the energy of gratitude and giving thanks. Having gratitude for what you have and all that you are is a powerful energy that will change everything in your life!

When was the last time you took a moment to look around and appreciate, I mean REALLY appreciate, all that you already have? How about yourself? When was the last time you sat quietly to appreciate and give thanks to your body for all it does for you? Been a while? If so, it’s time to CULTIVATE your GRATITUDE!

Gratitude and giving thanks allows you to have more in your life  by healing what you wish to heal and creating a space for more! It takes your attention out of the past or future and into the present which is where all creating takes place.  It sends a message into the universe that you are grateful for everything you have NOW.

Think of it this way, if you brought a gift to someone and they didn’t say thank you, then you brought another and they tossed it aside with no acknowledgement, do you think you would continue to give them gifts? You are receiving miracles and gifts on a daily basis. Having gratitude for these gifts sends a vibration into the universe. What message are you sending?

As an energy vibration gratitude can heal a broken heart, clear communication or stuck energy, and brings awareness to the abundance you already have in your life. Gratitude is naturally open and full of forgiveness.

Gratitude and giving thanks is not mutually exclusive to the positive things in your life. It also means finding gratitude for those difficult lessons, people who have hurt, invalidated or annoyed you. It means finding gratitude for those challenging lessons we all face every now and again. These people and experiences help us heal at a deep level in often profound ways.

It may not be easy to find gratitude for someone who broke your heart but give thanks and be grateful for the beautiful moments they brought you. You wouldn’t have had those beautiful moments or the experience if they hadn’t come into your life. There is a lesson you learned and more often than not, you discovered how strong and capable you really are!

How do you begin changing and shifting your attitude to gratitude? Very simply start a gratitude journal and every day for the next 30 days (or longer) jot down at least 5 things you are grateful for. Take time to think about and embody your gratitude as you write. Be sure to include those circumstances or people  you are having a challenge with.

Have gratitude for the lessons you have learned and the people who brought you those lessons. There is always something to appreciate and be grateful for even if it’s a hard lesson. Don’t forget gratitude for all that YOU are and the abundance that already surrounds you. Notice how your mood changes the more you write!

Creating change is a process and initially change is invisible because it happens on a vibrational level.  That said, these changes ARE affecting your life. At first you will notice subtle changes, then as you continue the process, the changes you see and feel are more profound! You hold in your hands the power to cultivate the ATTITUDE of GRATITUDE! Take time each day to appreciate your loved ones, your body & spirit, ALL you are and ALL you have!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving I want to extend my deepest gratitude and appreciation to each one of you.  You touch my life with your light and inspire me to continue doing my work in this world. :-) BOUNTIFUL BLESSINGS TO YOU AND YOURS!~Shine Your Light Debbie

Is There Illegal Dumping Going On in Your Space?

wasteIs someone mistaking your kindness for an agreement to dump their problems and/or pain into your space? Do people come into your life, hand you their problems then disappear as if they were never there? If you’ve been dumped on, are you OK with that?

My guess is that your probably NOT ok with someone dumping their pain into your space or running it through you.

The disturbing part of being dumped on is when we wake up to the fact that at some level we were taught (or programmed) to allow it and we, whether knowingly or unknowingly, are agreeing to it. Healers are particularly susceptible to this programming.

These “give me your pain” or as I like to call them “pass the pain” agreements exist between friends, lovers, family members and colleagues. Of course we want to “problem solve”. Of course we want to lend a compassionate ear. Of course we want to help others through difficult times. Of course we are there to support and heal those we love BUT that doesn’t mean we have to take on their pain or run it through us.

Why and When did we Agree?

I know you’re thinking (not because I’m clairvoyant but because I’ve pondered the question myself) “no way did I agree to take on that pain”. I’m their friend, lover, family (fill in the blank) and agreed to help them, heal them or hold their hand but I DID NOT agree to actually take that pain into me. Well my friends, at some level you did and it may simply be you are such a capable healer that you can.

It could be a Karmic agreement or quite possibly you want someone to love or like you. You may have been taught to do this to make others more comfortable or you may have learned it was more comfortable for you. Counter-intuitive I know but sometimes it’s easier for us to clear the pain for others than to actually watch them be in pain. There are as many reasons for the agreements we make as people on the planet. Every one is different and in a lifetime of pasts, presents and futures it’s up to each of us to uncover our truth about why and when.

What About Energy Vampires?

There is a lot of talk about energy vampires and less about getting dumped on although if you really take a long hard look,  those we consider the “Energy Vampires” sucking our energy dry, are the ones doing some of the dumping.

Funny thing is, we wouldn’t allow a stranger to dump on us now would we? Isn’t is interesting that those who “dump” are usually the ones closest to us at some level. The ones who know exactly how to push our buttons and the more we resist, the easier it is for them to dump!

One of the reasons we allow them to do it time and time again is because we love them. We don’t want to see them in pain. Many times I see healers who would rather be in pain themselves than allow another to be in pain. In the case of co-workers, colleagues and bosses we allow it so we are accepted as a part of the team or to keep the peace and our jobs.

Dumping Awareness

The dumpers aren’t necessarily aware they are dumping, and we may not be aware we’ve been dumped on until after the fact. Do you notice people or connections who come into your life then, in the blink of an eye, they leave and you don’t know why? Does your business go up and down or you go through periods of feast or famine? Guess what? Those are PRIME indicators you’ve been dumped on!

Stop the Madness!

It’s time we all stop the “pass the pain” “give it to me” syndrome. We don’t have to run others pain through us. The secret is to simply end the agreement. Clear the programming that says we should allow another to dump or run their pain through us.

Own your space by filling it with you. Fill it with compassion and love. Radiate from a place of your being. Be love and compassion. That, my friends, is what allows others to heal. Clean up the resistance and mess. Plant new seeds to grow. Create new thought processes and consciously decide to do it differently.

Treat those who dump with love and compassion. Just as you learned to allow the dumping, they learned it’s ok to do it AND just by you acknowledging and not taking on their pain, you are teaching them not to dump but to heal. We all have the ability to heal ourselves and we are here to help each other but that doesn’t mean we have to take on the pain of others to do it.~Shine Your Light Debbie

Validate Your Higher Self!

Validate your Higher SelfDo you have trouble validating our own spirit? Do you seek others to confirm (validate) what you know in your heart or sense and feel is true? Have you gone to a medium to speak to spirit yet do not acknowledge your own?

Why is it so difficult to validate (confirm) our own spirit as  powerful and capable? We call on the ascended masters or archangels for healing and sometimes forget WE have lifetimes of information. We have the power to heal ourselves, to transform and to create a new reality.

I have noticed that many people place more importance on messages from the “other world” instead of listening to the council that comes directly from their own spirit.  Our higher selves have answers and, if we choose to listen, will give us the very answer we seek.

Often times our answers are right in front of us but until we step out of the chaos and find stillness we cannot acknowledge or accept those answers that come directly from our higher selves. In finding stillness we acknowledge our eternal spirit. In taking time to listen to our own council we find certainty and little by little begin to trust our instincts; Trust our intuition, our inner voice. We learn to trust our “higher self”.

Our higher selves are silently guiding us. They faithfully and consistently guide us to experiences that, if we are open and aware, teach us valuable lessons. Our most challenging and hellish moments offer the greatest lessons if we choose to breathe, find stillness and listen. Through what sometimes feels like “tough love” our higher selves help us heal.

During trying or challenging periods what makes us so uncomfortable is that we are resisting our growth period. It’s possible we are resisting the answer we see or we are in effort attempting to change an outcome. Oddly, there are even times we are simply resisting the healing being offered from the experience.

Validating your higher self is like finally coming home after a long journey! It’s comfortable, full of truth and brings you certainty. Validating your higher self is a breath of fresh air and all you have to do is ACKNOWLEDGE IT! Acknowledging your higher self is acknowledging your eternal spirit. It is acknowledging you are powerful. It acknowledges the wisdom of many lifetimes you have brought with you.

Take a moment to check in with yourself. Is there a question you’ve been asking? Are you looking for a message? If so, find a place of stillness within, acknowledge your spirit. Welcome yourself home and decide to accept whatever answer you receive. Validate your higher self for holding your hand and guiding you on this very human journey.~Shine Your Light Debbie

Ready for Love? Take Down the Wall of Shame…

Tearing down walls to love“Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.”~Ann Landers

Love is what unites, walls are what separate. Why do we put up walls? What is it that causes us to feel fear or shame when it comes to our hearts?

Very simply, we put up walls because we are not perfect. We put up walls because other people might SEE we are not perfect. We put up walls because we don’t want people to see our pain.

Our hearts know no limits or boundaries. An open heart loves, is vulnerable and is not afraid to show imperfections. Not one of us is perfect and it takes courage to show our human-ness to others openly and honestly. We need not be ashamed of our bodies, our imperfections, our pain. We are human and our imperfections are as much a part of us as everything else.

At one time or another each of us has been hurt. Each of us has made a mistake. Each of us has experienced some level of fear around intimacy. We might think we’re being open but there are times we still hold back because we fear we will be judged or hurt in the process. We put up a “wall of shame” around our heart so others will not see us as “less” than. The problem is, the “shame” only exists in our minds and we’ve made it real! We’ve given it power. We’ve allowed it to build a wall that separates us from ourselves; Who we are and the love we are made of….

Shame is us judging ourselves and deciding we do not and will never meet the expectations of others. Shame says we are not good enough, our past was not good enough, we are not worth it and worst of all, our shame not only keeps others at arm’s length but it is the judgement of all judgments. We are judging ourselves so harshly we are deciding what (we think) is acceptable to others.

We may have been shamed as a child for doing or saying something wrong. We may have been shamed because something wasn’t good enough for our parents. We may have been judged harshly for not being perfect in an old relationship. We may judge ourselves for actions and mistakes we made in the past.

In many ways the “wall of shame” is a form of self sabotage. It stops us from fully experiencing and seeing the love we are. The love that unites us. It separates us and keeps us in a jail cell of self-judgment. It keeps us from fully loving ourselves and if we can’t fully love ourselves for who we are and make “allowances for human weakness” how can we possibly accept another openly and freely?

To truly love and be loved, we must take down the walls that separate us from the very thing we long for, the very thing we ARE. The walls we unconsciously, or sometimes consciously,  put up which seemingly separate us from others are really walls that separate us from OURSELVES! Be who you are. Love who you are. Take down the walls and let your love light shine!~Shine Your Light Debbie

Reflections of 9/11/2001…We will not forget

 As the stories and images from 9/11 fill the airwaves we reflect upon not only the events of that day but how those events touched each of our lives in some way. Each and every one of us was affected in some way and each of us has a personal story about that day….

It was a beautiful sunny day in Chicago on September 11, 2001. I went out for a run and remember how the sun was playfully dancing on the grass, reflecting the crisp blue sky in the mirrored buildings and on the lake. Glancing up at the skyline and marveling at its magnificence I remember feeling happy yet at the same time, there was this nagging feeling I had to get home….

I cut my run short that morning. When I got home, I went into the kitchen ignoring the beeping of my answering machine, grabbed a cup of coffee and came back into the living room where I had left the TV on before I left. Charlie Gibson was on Good Morning America showing a clip of a plane hitting the first  World Trade Center building. I thought they were showing a trailer for a new movie coming out. “Are you kidding?” I thought, “Who would make a movie like that?”

In this case, truth is clearly more horrible than fiction. I sat down and watched live as the second plane hit. I went completely numb! This was no movie! It was happening and happening NOW! I sat in stunned silence watching the events in New York, DC & Pennsylvania unfold. Yes, I remember that morning clearly even 10 years later and I’m sure I’m not the only one. All over the world people came together. There was an outpouring of love and it seemed for a moment the world came together as a family.

We honor  the victims, survivors and everyone who rose in service on that day and in the days to follow.  Our heroes are the firefighters and police who went well beyond the call of duty to save lives. Many of them made the greatest sacrifice…their lives. We feel connected in some way as Americans and it does not matter if we personally knew anyone involved.

We grieve and wrap our arms around all who were directly affected yet who among us was not affected? ALL of us were affected and it is time to put aside our differences and wrap our arms around each other. It is time to stand tall and not turn a deaf ear when we hear stories of terrorism “someplace else in the world” because “someplace else” was New York in 2001. On that day in 2001 we were a family, grieving together, mourning together and watching a real life horror story.

Let us honor and say a prayer for those who died senselessly at the hands of terrorists.  Say a prayer and send love and light to those who lost family friends and co-workers. Let us thank and honor those in law enforcement, the Fire Department, the Military and anyone else who stepped up to go beyond the call of duty for their contributions and sacrifice on that day and since that day. It is time to embrace our loved ones, teach tolerance and love and pray for PEACE ON EARTH. ~Shine Your Light Debbie

Shake it Up Challenge!

Shake it Up, Try Something New Challenge!

Shake it Up Challenge!“As long as habit and routine dictate the pattern of living, new dimensions of the soul will not emerge.”~Henry Van Dyke

When was the last time you tried something new? When was the last time you stepped outside of your comfort zone by simply changing the route you walk (or drive) to work? Went to see a play or movie? Visited a friend you haven’t seen in a while? Went to a new restaurant, visited an art museum or took a walk in nature? When was the last time you did something you used to enjoy but, due to the busy-ness of life, haven’t done it in a long time?

Maybe your “routine” has become a habit and maybe that very routine is keeping you from flourishing and moving forward! How about shifting that routine from the unaware mundane to the aware and exciting?!!! How about shaking it up a bit to increase your awareness?!!

Our routines become our habits and our habits become those areas where we have the least awareness! If you’ve felt stuck, depressed, you’re having a challenge releasing energy and/or it feels like there’s no forward movement in your life maybe it’s time to try something new and exciting!

“I wasn’t losing my focus but I was getting tired of focusing. What I was focusing on was becoming too routine, too ritual, not something that was interesting, new and exciting.”~Picabo Street

When we get used to focusing on the negative and releasing the same things over and over we are actually causing a habit to be born. Anything we do day in and day out, in other words our routine, leads us to go on auto pilot. Of course there are times when this works in our favor like flossing and brushing your teeth every day or choosing healthy foods. Those are for sure good habits to have BUT when it comes to energy work the routine becomes the mundane and no longer feeds your spirit and soul.

The more comfortable in our routines the harder it is to create change and transformation. No matter how much we want things to change there is an element of fear that comes up. We even get comfortable in our pain. Why? Because it’s all too familiar! We know how to deal with it. The reality is that “life begins at the end of your comfort zone”~Neale Donald Walsh

There are empirical studies that show if you repeat a behavior often enough, your “synaptic pathways are going to get worn.” Well, what if we consciously, mind-fully and gently re-energize our synaptic pathways?

“The less routine the more life.”~Amos Bronson Alcott

How about we shake things up a bit? How about we stop “waiting” for things to clear, “waiting” for inspiration or “waiting” for someone else to give us a break? How about we “shift” our routine, “shift” the mundane, get un-stuck and bring a little excitement into our lives? The “Shake it Up, Try Something New Challenge” is easy. All you have to do is commit to doing something new, or something you haven’t done in a long time, every week for the next couple of months.

The new (or renewed) can be a simple as moving your mat to the other side of the room in yoga class or getting up early to go for a walk. Maybe discover a new restaurant or try a new food. Take an art class, visit a museum, or schedule lunch with a friend. It can also be more daring and out of the box like skydiving or climbing a mountain. Whatever it is for you that’s new or something you’ve wanted to do for a long time…go ahead. DO IT!

You can do this any time but I’m creating a Facebook Event on my Clairvoyant Readings by Debra page and you are welcome to join us! Feel free to leave your comments or post pictures about what you’re doing on the “Shake it Up, Try Something New Challenge” event on Facebook or just add your comments, thoughts or pictures here.

It’s time to get excited about doing something new! It helps shift your energy, feeds your spirit, gives you something to look forward to and will “shake you” out of your routine! Join us! Your spirit will thank you!~Shine Your Light Debbie

Each of Us is a Work of Art in Progress

Each of us is a work of art in progress. We are here to do extraordinary things. With every experience the waters ebb and flow until they carve out a beautiful space that is not only rich in color but let’s the light into the depths of our soul.

The ebb and flow of the waters is sometimes gentle, sometimes turbulent but never forget that the waters are also there to carry away what has kept us hidden in darkness for so long. The masterpiece buried deep within the rocks is constantly calling the waters to it…not to destroy the rocks but to allow them to show what lies beneath.

Canyon

As a work of art in progress we “progress” as quickly or slowly as we choose. We can allow or we can resist but ultimately the choice is ours. We may not know the direction, we may not have a clue what is about to be unearthed and revealed but with each revelation we become more extraordinary. Our art, our life, our masterpiece shows more of who we are.

Each of us is a work of art in progress. We are here to do extraordinary things. With every experience the waters ebb and flow until they carve out a beautiful space that is not only rich in color but let’s the light into the depths of our soul.~Shine Your Light Debbie
