Love, Magic & Miracles: They make the world a better place…

IMG_7003

Welcome October! This month is about New Beginnings, Love, Light, Strength, Success and Wholeness with a little bit of Magic in the air. All year, many of us have been working hard on creating the best version of ourselves. It may not have been easy, but that hard work you put in for the betterment of yourself is going to start to pay off. You will soon see that your own inner work, raising within you the love, light, strength and your own connection to the Divine will also have a ripple effect to all of your family members, loved ones and friends. October is the month, you start to feel connected once more to a new you, as well as relearning who others are, now that they have also had growth. You may even find this month, that people and relationships you were close to, have changed in dynamics. In some way, every relationship you have with anyone is probably different than it was this time last year. It is up to you, to try and see everything through the perspective of Gratitude. The more you can see all things and all people as forms of love and light, the more you can tap into the magic and unity that has the ability to ripple out to the world. Do you want to make this world a better place? The best way to do that, is to continue to shine your light brightly so that others may follow. Only you were given talents and gifts you were given at birth from the Divine. It is time to fully tap into the Gifts of your Divinity and use your talents to the best of your ability and choose to claim your Destiny, as only you can fulfill the Destiny that is awaiting you. No one else can do it, only you can. The time is upon us, and the new beginnings are arriving, embrace everything you are and RISE and SHINE, as the real journey of your Destiny is about to beginning.

This month is filled with such magic and miracles, that instead of an article, I really wanted to highlight the monthly playlist. I consider music a form of therapy and healing. I encourage you to use this month’s playlist to uplift you to a journey you have always hoped for and are stepping into.

This month marks the sixth anniversary of Elysian Life Design! What an amazing journey in the last six years has been. Some of you have been along for the ride since the very first edition and watched how we continued to grow together. As in my opinion, we all grow together. Even if you have never had a session with me, or experienced our products, we are still growing together through these newsletters each month. It is hard for me to put into words what a personal journey the last six years have been for me. A year ago, someone told me that I would be doing what they were doing. At that time, I thought, there is no way that is possible. I didn’t see how I could do that. But, many years later, here we are. God has blessed me with many gifts and blessings that I am so grateful. One of them is to be able to see things through the eyes of the Divine and into people’s true self and their energy. I consider it a privilege whenever someone allows me into their energy. The last six years have been an incredible journey. I have also seen leaps and bounds in not only growth and healing for so many of you but also within myself. Over the last six years, I have somehow also become the person God always knew I was capable of being. I was lost along the way, but as some of you may have experienced over the last year, when God wants you back, HE gets what HE wants. And I couldn’t be more happy about that! The last six years was a giant leap of faith, and for me it has been fascinating journey thus far. We are all growing and expanding and changing for the better, and I cannot wait to see what they bring to all of us many years ahead. Thank you for making the last six years so inspiring!

Stay Inspired,

Stacey

Reconnecting To The Divine Through The Power of Prayer…

IMG_5642.jpg

I think it is safe to say that life, as we have known it up until this point, is different now. This past year, I have had to reach into parts of me that, for some reason, I had turned into white noise I was ignoring. Often, when we are faced with a situation in life that is too unbearable to deal with ourselves, or we think is impossible, we go back to what has always been proven to help…Faith. I am not talking per se about religion, but faith. All souls here on Earth, come from the same place. We are given missions and assignments in this life that we have to learn. Some of those assignments may be believing in other things than many others believe in. But, for me, this has been a year of faith and trust in the Divine like never before. Through the course of my necessities, I found my way back to a few things. I had a deep conversation with God. I admitted that I had somehow gotten very lost in life. I had remembered that every time I had gone to God with something, no matter the size of the request, HE always found a way and answered my prayers. When I was in my twenties, there were many times I found myself in not the right spot for me in life. I asked God to send me a sign. HE did! At that moment, I wasn’t a fan of the sign he had sent me. I asked HIM to send me another one. HE did! The second time the message that HE was leading me away from something was even louder. In that situation, all had worked out in my favor in the long run. When I found myself tired of waking up every morning for what felt like months from a stomach issue, I went to God and said, I know you think I am strong, but I am tired of feeling this way, please help. HE did. I had quit smoking for nine months and then for some reason, started again. years later when I knew I was ready to quit because I wanted to, I went to God and asked him for a second chance at it. I asked HIM to make it as easy as it was for me the first time I quit. The first time I quit, I stopped cold. I didn’t use any tools or have any cravings, nothing. I went with my whole heart and said if you can make it that easy for me one more time. The next day, I quit cold. No cravings, no urges, as I had never smoked at all. Every time I had turned to HIM in my time of need, HE never failed.

Many years later, I found myself very sick, and in and out of the hospital. Many Doctors looked at me and were unsure how I was even alive. I specifically remember one night in October 2016, when I was 33, I showed up to the ER around 1:00 am because I had been vomiting for days and wasn’t stopping. I had been having a very difficult time walking for months, but people had brushed certain things off because I was only in my thirties. The Doctors at the ER decided to do a CT Scan to see if it was related to one of my medical conditions. About thirty minutes later, the DR had come back in the room with a very shocked look and specifically said, “I do not know how you are alive right now.” He informed me that I had five blood clots. One in my abdominal aorta, both kidneys, spleen and one in my femoral artery. He also said that from right above my belly button to the end of my pelvis all of my arteries including my Superior Mesenteric Artery that supplies vital blood flow to the colon were completely occluded. The only blood supply I had been getting to my lower organs and my legs was because my body had created a bypass and grown new capillary veins. When I was released over a week later, I was desperate and found a prayer online for a Miracle. I will admit, I said it before going to sleep and when I woke up the next morning, I will be honest, I was pissed I didn’t feel better. I may have even told God and Jesus WTH. I continued to say that prayer a few more times but had given up when I didn’t receive my Miracle healing right away. This was just one of many situations when I had been questioned how I was still alive. Fast forward three years later, I found myself faced with something that was even more challenging than my health issues and, as I mentioned, felt very lost and broken inside in ways I had never felt previously.

You would think it would be easier for a person who is lucky enough to hear God when I ask him a question. But, even I had gotten off track.

Once I had made amends with God and myself about some things in my life, I came to a realization. When I was pissed because I couldn’t see or feel the Divine when I needed them the most, I was wrong! They had always been there. I had been given my Miracle; it had just taken some time to come to the surface for me because it was on Divine timing. Which, in case you don’t know, is always on time. It is never early, never late, always exactly when it is meant to arrive. It was through the course of the greatest necessity of my life that I began to see things so clearly, and pieces of my soul and purpose and Destiny were aligning. God had been preparing me all my life with the tools needed to overcome any obstacles that would stand in the way.

The Power of Prayer is a very real thing! We have to remember that God is even more attached to our happiness and us fulfilling our Soul Purpose than we are. He created us to be our best selves. So, when you go to HIM, HE will always show up for you, no matter what. HE helped me to find some tools that have truly made an impact in my life, and reconnect me to the Divine in a way I always should have been but had been ignoring. One of the many things that has fascinated me about this process up to this point, is how God will also place people in your life so that when you reach out to friends, family, and loved ones they will also be there to help you. Divine tools to succeed come in both Human form and other items.  Although my current necessities are still coming to the surface, I know God and all of the Divine are on it.

This is the Miracle Prayer I had mentioned I had said back in 2016: http://voteladycage-barile47thassembly.tripod.com/id31.html

I wanted to share with you some of the amazing tools; I have been blessed to find in this process.

I had even been working very closely with Jesus and Mother Mary during this process, as well. It took me some time to realize that it was true what they had said that Jesus had never changed and what he did in the Bible, Jesus does today. I have seen it in my own life! Once I realized “oh my” that is a true statement, it blew my mind. Mother Mary had mentioned I should do the Rosary, and what an amazing teacher to learn from than Mother Mary herself. She helped me create a very powerful form of the Rosary, which combines a prayer novena for her and the traditional rosary. Here is that combined document if you are guided to use the Rosary as well in your everyday life, or being guided to get closer to your faith once more.

Rosary Prayer

One of the most important tools that I will share with you is that I had truly learned to let go, and let God. Again, I am blessed with a God-given a gift to hear God. HE would say to me, “Stacey, give me the control.” And, I would say, “God, I like the control!” We went back and forth, for a few days, but HE always gets HIS point across and as soon as I turn over everything. And I mean everything. Every part of my life, being and the world, that is when movement happened. God had tapped me into my own life, and said: “Girl, this is the moment I have been preparing you for, let’s go, we got work to do.” Let Go, and Let God. I promise you HIS WILL is to lead you to happiness, health and a life that is beyond what you could have ever dreamed of possible. But, we have to say to HIM let your WILL be done. Get me out of my way and lead the way. When I did this, I started to see positive changes in my life. My life, being and world started aligning to God’s WILL for me. Even my mind become clear, and I had peace in my mind, and in my thoughts.

We all have it in us. We all have access to it; we just forget that it is there. We can get caught up in all of the external things in life, but always remember that we never have to go through it alone. If we can move past the fear, and say “HELP” God will. So will all of the Divine, but we have to ask for it.

If you are lost and having a hard time, turn everything over — every part of yourself and your life. Sometimes, you will see things happen within seconds. Some other things are going to take some time to unfold. But trust that even before you ask for help, they see it, so the moment you ask, they are already working it out for your highest good. Be patient in the process and know that truly with God on your side, all things are possible. There is nothing stronger, more powerful or more loving than God, and HE will never fail you, just like HE has never failed me, or anyone for that matter. I often tell HIM that I am grateful he never goes back on the promises HE places in your heart. It doesn’t matter if someone else says no, or that can’t be done, or that is impossible. When it is God’s WILL, HE will make way for it to be done. I have seen HIM do it for me. I am watching HIM doing it all around me, and I know no matter who you are if you are reading this, HE leads you to it and HE will do it for you as well.

Stay Inspired!

Prayer For The Soul…

Capture 2

This month, I wanted to do something very different. This past month, the power of prayer has been very real inside of me. I know that some days have been hard this year so far for many of us. If we are honest, maybe you have had many hard years up until now. You have the opportunity to let all those hard times go and step into your destiny. Close your eyes, play this song, and let it make everything better, because I promise you, it has the power to. Try and do this every day for June.

Bo Ruach Elohim

When Reflection Turns To Growth…

Changing Seasons Of Mysterious Woodland

Life… It can often be very complex, confusing, difficult and yet amazing, exciting and a blessing. Sometimes all of the above happen within the same day. As humans, we fluctuate our energy with the earth, and with others around us. Without the downs in life, we wouldn’t be able to appreciate the joy of the up’s and vice versa.  Over the last year and a half, it seems like both as individuals and as humanity in general, we have been pushed to the edge and asked to trust in a higher source to guide us on our path. That, however, can be hard to do. Years ago, I knew a retired priest, and I asked him, “If Jesus Christ came back to Earth, what do you think would happen?” At the time, that seemed like a very logical question. As a child, I worried about the end of days. Now, as an adult, it doesn’t have the same effects on me. So what did the priest say, you may be asking… He said “I think the same thing would happen. Not crucified, in public like before, but no one would believe him to be Jesus so that he would be persecuted again.” His answer perplexed me for so many years, and in many way it still does. As humans we can have a pattern to mistrust people. I think that may come from fears of not trusting ourselves in many ways.

Over the past month, I have noticed many people, myself included, almost doing a life review. I think there is something about the winter that brings people to reflect. Also as things around us have to die to transform, and that is often how our energy works. We have to be willing to let go and allow things about ourselves to die in a way. Old limiting beliefs. One of my least favorite limiting beliefs is my inability to forgive myself for things I didn’t know 20 years ago. How dare I have the audacity to not have an additional 20 years of wisdom when I was only a teenager? Sometimes it feels like we are constantly trying to work through something. The Human body, energy etc, is like an onion, there is always another layer to be worked out.

Maybe you spent years working through a physical issue only to find out it was an emotional issue with also left an energetic footprint. It can be so frustrating sometimes to work through all these things and feel like you are always so close to the finish line. As I mentioned before, winter is often considered a time of reflection in many ways. Without removing all the things that are no longer serving you, there is no room for all the things you are trying to create. A lot is changing in the world over the next two years. The Universe is asking you right now, do you what to continue to be untrusting of anything and everything? Or, perhaps you want believe that you are being guided every day by a higher source. Even though, believe it or not, I have my trust issues sometimes in life, I do know one thing. The Divine comes through when you need them. It may not be the way you want them to, or expect them to. But, your blessing will always be delivered to you.  So where are my top 5 things that I have learned in my own reflection time so far this year that has led to my personal growth that will perhaps help you in yours.

  1. If you are feeling unworthy of blessings in your life, or that you are not good enough in some way, STOP. Come to a place within yourself that the Creation, GOD, Universe, whatever you believe in, made you exactly how you are meant to be. From every freckle, scar, wrinkle, etc they are all battle wounds. You are perfect just being you. Only you can truly help yourself feel worthy by coming to terms with the fact that you may have your moments of imperfection. But, that is what makes you perfectly you and perfectly worthy of being you. Sometimes when I am feeling all the normal human feelings of myself and the world, and it can seem overwhelming, I talk to GOD. I ask him “what are you going to do with me?” His response… “love you”. Meaning, GOD will always love you just as you are, unconditionally.
  2. In life, we will all play the would a, sould a, could a game. Trust me, forgive yourself and move on. 99.9% of the time the stuff you are worried about won’t matter in 2 years.
  3. If you want to having truly good relationships in your life, you must first have a good relationship with yourself. Without that, you will be unable to accept the love offered by others. Life can be a hall of mirrors sometimes, and that hall of mirrors can be your worst nightmare. If something keeps reflecting at you, do yourself a favor, don’t require the other person to change, simply do some of the work and change it within yourself. It won’t always be easy, but it will be worth it. This goes for any relationship in your life, co-workers, family, friends, romantic, etc.
  4. If you start building the trust relationship with yourself, you will start seeing how you trust in others, as well as GOD, Universe, the Divine. Just take one day out of the week. For that one day, ask GOD, your Guides, Source energy to lead you. Trust your intuition just for that day and see what happens.
  5. I spent a lot of time thinking about the question that I asked the priest so many years ago about his thoughts on Jesus. Without getting into too much religion, for the sake of my findings, I am going to approach it from the Holy Trinity of the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit and combine them in the word God. Here are my thoughts about that. God is everywhere and in everything. God is love, God is peace, God is the air, God is the silence, God is the person asking for help. God is within you. God is within me. Yes, there are people and things in this world that sometimes make it very difficult to trust or keep faith in humanity. But, there is still goodness and kindness in the world. When you see acts of kindness, that is God, that is Jesus, that is whatever faith you believe in showing you the works of a higher source, and that, you can always trust. The Divine will never lead you down the wrong path. It may take you awhile to get where you need to go, but you will always be there exactly when you need to.

As a new season is approaching, the trees, plants, animals are going to begin to grow, bloom and play. You will find yourself coming out of your state of reflection and be able to see your growth that took place. Remember it is not a sprint, but a marathon. You WILL get to where you need to be. So I leave you with this… Namaste (The God in me, recognizes the God in you).

Stay Inspired,

Stacey

Making a New Year’s Resolution for your Soul…

soul resolution

As a New Year is upon us, we can be inundated with resolutions, goals, and wanting to create better lives for ourselves. Rightfully so, but I have found that a lot of people take a physical approach to these New Year’s Resolutions, like getting healthier, work out, “go on a diet” (a pretty popular one), stopping bad habits etc. It is not that these are bad resolutions. In fact I have known a lot of people who have done them, my self included. We can put a lot of pressure on ourselves when it comes to these resolutions. We set a big expectation of ourselves that is hard to always accomplish. For example, losing 30lbs in a month, although feasible, but not healthy, it is also not sustainable in the long term. For many years my New Year’s Resolution revolved around a physical piece of my life. Something that I could see.  Somehow, that meant it was more real. Most of the time, the resolution would fall to the important things to do mid to late January. In fact, none of my successful physical resolutions were ever made at the “New Year”.

Around 2011, I decided that I needed some inner work done on my soul level. Sometimes it is the unseen that needs the most work! Some can appear to have it all together on the outside, but are having a tough time in ways that cannot physically show. I was horrible at taking a compliment. So horrible in fact, that some people would say “can’t you take a compliment”. It would make me so uncomfortable if someone said something nice to me, that I didn’t know how to respond. So I would either over justify, if someone complimented a piece of clothing, purse, shoes etc and explain what a deal I got which, by the way, most people don’t care unless they specifically ask you where you got those items from. Or I would sometimes end up putting myself down to the person who gave the compliment to the point that they would doubt why they said it in the first place. Either way it was uncomfortable all around. I knew it was an area about myself that I didn’t like and wanted to change. So, in 2011 I made my first New Year’s “Soul Resolution”. Something that would benefit my soul and ultimately shine out onto my physical being.  So, for that whole year I decided that if someone gave me a compliment of any kind, I would say “Thank You.” Not thank you, I got them on sale, or thank you but… just thank you. I cut out the over justification and the awkwardness. Sometimes people want you to return the compliment. But, that’s a different story. For me to do what I needed to do, I had to say “thank you,” and move on.  Was I successful in that every day, NO. But somehow because it wasn’t a physical resolution like a diet that could be broken by a bagel on January 2nd but was a core being change that would take time. I just had to take it day by day. Somedays I did well and somedays I needed improvement but that was ok.

As the years went on, I tried to tackle harder things in my soul. For instance, one year I decided I was going to no longer live in fear. Fear is one resolution I may have to make for many years as it is so difficult to overcome. One year, I decided that I was not going to doubt God’s plan or think my life would be a practical joke, and to trust Him. Another year, I focused on Self-Love. This past year, I tackled worry. I joke that I was probably worrying in my mother’s womb. Somehow worry just consumed me and stressed me out, kept me up at night and just overall consumed my thoughts. Again, somedays I did well on this, and somedays I needed to take notes so I could do better the next day. But, as this year is coming to a close, I will tell you that in hindsight that I handle worry very differently than I did at this time last year. Do I still worry, yes, but I focus my energy differently. Instead of only focusing on the worry and the undesired outcomes, I redirect my thoughts to the positive. Now this is not new information that thinking positively will help your life. I am here to tell you that “if you think you can, you will,” and that works both ways. I have also noticed that I don’t lay awake pondering things that I once worried about, because they are all things over which I have no control. I would often recite this Serenity Prayer: “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.” I create a new habit within me to better deal with my worry, just like I did with trusting God’s plan, fear, and taking a compliment.

Will we lose 20lbs overnight, it’s not likely. Will we stop worrying overnight? That is highly unlikely also. But, if we get up each day and try our best, and recognize that each day what our best is may change and that is ok. As long as you are giving all you’ve got, even if it’s a two on a scale of a hundred, you are still giving your best. Every year, month, week and day is the opportunity to achieve your goal or desire. As for myself, I knew I had to clear out some old things before those new things fell into place. And for me, it worked, but I am still a work in progress. It didn’t happen overnight. But, as time went on, I noticed, “Oh I dealt with that better, or I am redirecting that thought etc.” For those who may be interested, here is the full serenity prayer that can be helpful for a variety of things you may be going through.

“God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
As it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
If I surrender to His Will;
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with Him
Forever and ever in the next.
Amen.”

Serenity Prayer (Full Text)

I hope you will join me this year and every year in taking a Soulful approach to your New Year’s Resolutions. If anything, it can help you work on areas that you need to before the physical ones are ready to unfold.

Stay Positive & Stay Kind & Stay Inspired

The Day I Met Santa…

santa

The story of Santa Clause is one a lot of us grew up knowing and experiencing the Magic that was “Santa” from songs about good old Saint Nick to leaving out milk and cookies for him on Christmas Eve. I remember being young and thinking “how does he get around the world in one night?” Modern technology now helps us track Santa through his special journey Christmas Eve. But, as we get older, for some reason culture tells us that it is not cool or acceptable to believe in something magical or that we cannot understand with our logical minds. I am going to share with you a story that I have not shared with many people. But, I feel it is essential to fill the world back with some hope or magic this Holiday Season.

When I was 29, I had a profound experience on the Winter Solstice in 2012. That experience seemingly awakened my soul and put me on the path to my Spirituality. It awakened it from all the years of slumber from that part of myself. Ever since that day, I have seen the magic first hand that can be had at this time of year. Some call it a Christmas Miracle, some the Winter Solstice and others call it December 21st. Most of my life, I had experienced health issues, mostly various autoimmune challenges. As my soul was going through this new found awakening, some of those issues came to a cataclysmic moment. Three years later in 2015, I found myself laying in a hospital bed the week before Christmas. Although things weren’t as bad as they had been in the past, or in hindsight as bad as they were going to get, no one loves being in the hospital, especially right before the holidays.

See, you may be asking what exactly had happened to me on December 21, 2012. That was a day, if you remember, many people had speculated about since it was the last day of the Mayan Calendar. Many of us now know that day was a day that the energy changed in the world and it was like a veil had been lifted. Well that was the day when, for whatever reason, the light switch inside of me turned on and with it all of my Spiritual gifts. It was on that day that I realized that I had been suppressing my connection with Spirit. Throughout my life, I have always been able to sense things. But, I often ignored them or pretended they did not exist. I could be in a space and know that something else was there with me and get a sense of energy from it. I know that others can sense things also. But, many times we think it is bad or scary energy because we do not understand what it is. The unknown is often an unsettling experience. Usually, right before I would fall asleep, I would hear people talking to me or calling my name, and sometimes saying things I wasn’t sure I wanted to hear. I remember thinking, “why do they always want to talk to me right before I am about to go to sleep?” Well, that was because, at that time in my life, that was the only time my vibrations were high enough to be open to receiving the messages. I knew energy and spirits were around and there was this whole universal aspect of life. But, I was not sure I was ready to fully embrace that part of who I was. I continued to live my life that way for many years, and had done an excellent job suppressing them, or so I had thought. When that switch flipped everything became clear and yet so much to learn, and so many more questions. That day on the Winter Solstice was a day I stepped into my full relationship with Spirit, the Divine and awakened to my purpose.

So, in 2015, as I was laying in that hospital bed contemplating life, and trying my best to focus on the Christmas magic I could still harness even if I was not at a magical Winter Solstice event, it happened. That was when I saw Santa Clause walk through my hospital wall.

I may have just lost some of you for a moment, so let me repeat that, Santa Clause walked through the wall. Red suit, holly jolly, Saint Nick…

The hospital can be a very active place for someone who is sensitive to energy, or who can see and hear Spirits. But, never in my life did I expect to see that. Surprisingly, my first thought was not fear or disbelief, but I remember thinking, “Ok, things are about to get interesting!” As Santa walked closer to my bed, I did what any person would do. I said hi Santa. He walked over to my bedside and held my right hand. As he did this, he shared his trade secrets with me and my mind was officially blown. In that moment I remember thinking, this makes SO much sense. Before I tell you precisely what Santa said, it is important to understand that everything is an energy frequency. Even as humans we are made up of billions of particles that are made out of energy and therefore, we are energy. And, anything is possible if you tap into the right frequency of that energy.

Here is what Santa told me. He said, “If Spirit is energy and energy can be anywhere, then all of us have been looking at Santa the wrong way.” He is not a physical man that comes down our chimneys at night, and leave us physical gifts under the tree, but does something much more important. Santa is energy. Whether believing is seeing, or seeing is believing. Santa is Spirit energy, just like how the Universe is energy and we know there is something larger than ourselves in the Universe. Because Santa is this energetic frequency he can be anywhere and everywhere all at the same time.  Spirit frequency knows no time, and therefore time does not exist. So, that solved the question to how he travels around the world in one night and visits every child while they sleep. What he continued to tell me was that every Christmas Eve, he visits the hearts of every child and person who believes in the magic of Christmas. Even though, he doesn’t come in physical form, but energetically, he delivers the most powerful and profound gift to those believers. To a child or adult who has an open heart to the power of belief, he gives them the gift of “Christmas Spirit.” Christmas Spirit is something that will mean different things for different people. For some it is peace of earth, kindness to other people, the Charity of giving, and helping those in need, good tidings and cheer. For others, it may mean something else. But, the magic of Christmas, the kind of magic that can bring miracles is the Christmas Spirit. That frequency of peace, joy, blessings and gratitude for all that we already have in our lives. That kind of frequency that could bring peace on earth, if every person opened their heart to it more. To me, that is the most important gift of all; one that is surrounded in unconditional love from the Universe, from God. Miracles, Kindness, belief, peace and happiness to the Human Soul. So, as Santa stood there holding my hand, he asked me if my heart was open to receiving the Christmas Spirit. Of course I said yes! As he leaned down and kissed my forehead to give me the gift of the Christmas Spirit, I felt the cells in my body  as they reawakened to the magic that Santa Clause has just gifted me. As, the Spirit of Christmas was now inside of me, he said his goodbyes, gave me an old-fashioned Santa wink of his eye, touched my nose with his finger and said, “see you next year.” Then, he left the way he came and walked back through the wall, off to deliver the Christmas Spirit to another person.

The next day, the doctors let me go home. Some may not view it as a Christmas Miracle, but given my visitor the night before, I sure considered it as one. Since that day, I have seen Christmas differently. It is not about a gift under the tree. It is in fact about filling our hearts with the magic of the “Christmas Spirit” and all the other forms of spiritual gifts that come from tapping into its energy.

So, this Holiday Season, as life may have brought you in a direction that makes it hard to believe in Santa, or perhaps you and your family want to incorporate a new tradition, one that doesn’t cost anything, but will give you the best gift. I encourage you to try and open your hearts to the magic that can be had and experienced, by believing, and allowing the Spirit of Santa to give you the most important gift you can get at Christmas… The Christmas Spirit.

All Things Solar Plexus Chakra…

solar plexus

What if I told you there was a spot within you where if you tapped into it, you could unlock courage, personal power and you could feel more worthy in your everyday life. We have all been there when we had a “gut” feeling about something and we knew it was going to be an issue. But, we did it anyway and then we wished we would have listened to our gut! That instinct and the key to unlocking the courage and personal power within you is called the Solar Plexus Chakra. We all have one. Even animals have one. But, most of us do not pay it any attention and we can go our whole lives that way. Until one day we open up to this energy source, and it changes our life.

 

What is a Chakra?

A chakra is an energy source that is within your various energy fields and the physical body. It can also be referred to as a wheel of energy.  These wheels of energy connect various energy sources within your body to each other. They then connect to your physical body, and also cosmic energy. That is how we get our “Chi, Life Force Energy, Prana” etc. We all have a large variety of Chakras within all of us. There are seven major Chakras which you may be more familiar with. Running from the Base of your tailbone up to the top of your head, these seven main Chakra’s help us stay balanced, connected and healthy. When they are all working together and aligned, they can be your best friend. But, when they are having a tough time, need support and having a temper tantrum, well let’s just say you will be in for one heck of a journey. But that is another blog in itself.

 

What is the Solar Plexus Chakra & Why is it important:

The Third Chakra, also known as the Solar Plexus Chakra, is just above your naval area. This energy source deals with raw emotions such as abundance, anger, frustration, personal power, success, worthiness, and intuitions. This Chakra is like your own personal vision board that you carry within you every day. It is the key to manifesting living your best life and achieving all of your desires. It is up to you to decide whether to focus on the positive aspects or negative ones.

 

How the Solar Plexus Chakra Affects your Physical & Emotional Health:

When this energy source is balanced, you can feel worthy, filled with confidence, happiness, feelings of achievement, success, calm and full of life like the Sun. It also allows you to remain flexible and allows you to handle life’s changes with ease. When this Chakra is unbalanced it can lead to a slew of health issues, unbalanced emotions, depression, anxiety, unhealthy boundaries, doubt, anger, digestive issues and more.

This is a unique chakra. Not only does it sit in a location that houses most of the essential organs from the stomach, large intestines, liver, nerves and headquarters for our immune system, etc. It can also be vital to our muscular system and can affect diabetes, self-esteem issues, and even arthritis.

 

Signs your Solar Plexus Chakra is blocked:

  • A physical health issue such as constipation, addictive behavior, reflux issues and more.
  • Difficult time keeping healthy boundaries with people and even ourselves.
  • Feeling bored with life, passive, depressed and anxious.
  • Oversensitive to thoughts and feelings and well as a feeling of vulnerability and an uneasiness of life.
  • Overwhelming feelings of shame.
  • Self- Esteem and Self-control issues.
  • Weight gain and a form of energetic protection.

 

Signs your Solar Plexus Chakra is balanced:

  • A clear direction of your life path and goals.
  • Balanced relationships, work ethics, physical and emotional thoughts and actions.
  • Motivation to achieve goals & desires.
  • Positive self-esteem, sense of self and core beliefs and upholding values.
  • Strong leadership skills & seeing the abundance in your life.

 

Ways to keep your Solar Plexus Chakra balanced & aligned:  

  • Cut your Energy Cords on a regular basis. Ideally once a day if possible.
  • Get organized in your physical space, and this will help you have the motivation to achieve other goals.
  • Incorporating yellow foods into your diet such as corn, lemons, yellow peppers, yellow squash, etc.
  • Physically work your core area in exercise.
  • Practice positive affirmations to yourself and listen to positive uplifting music and sounds.
  • Put into place healthy boundaries and set up ways to make it easy to keep them in place. For example, if you are a “yes” person to everything and someone asks you if you want to do something, simply say let me check my calendar and get back to you. This way you have some time to think about it.
  • Remember your inner roar, and that you are strong, worthy and can achieve your desires and rise above the ebbs and flows of life.
  • Spend some time in the sun and in nature connecting to the energy within you.
  • Surround yourself with yellow or gold light. Either by placing an energy bubble of these colors around you or by decorating your space in these colors.
  • Using Bergamot, Elevation, Cheer, or Lemon Essential oils. We personally recommend DoTerra Essential Oils.

 

I have learned that using “I AM” Affirmations specifically targeting my solar Plexus Chakra is the best and easiest way to keep it working at the desired levels. For example, some powerful ones are “I AM Worthy, I AM Enough, I AM Abundant, and I AM Achieving my dreams.” Telling yourself those simple key phrases every day can make a huge impact in making sure your Solar Plexus Chakra is balanced and healthy. I also love working with crystals for the Solar Plexus Chakra like Citrine, Tiger’s Eye, Orange Calcite, and Pyrite. Simply by carrying them on you or having them in your space can make a huge difference for you and the health of your Solar Plexus Chakra. Try getting in the habit of taking a minute each day to connect yourself to your Solar Plexus Chakra, talking positively to it, setting a daily affirmation and setting the day in a positive motion. By doing this you will create an environment that harnesses self-worth and personal power where you can achieve all. And, certainly, this can take time as we all have self-doubt, vulnerability, and fears that arise. But, take it day by day and each day give it your best effort and see what happens. The more you nurture it the more benefits you will start to see play out in your life. Then, one day you will wake up and feel that abundant joy and inner worth that was right inside of you the whole time and you will be living your desires.

I was and still am one of those people who has to constantly try to keep my Solar Plexus Chakra balanced. It is one of my weakest chakras, so I can understand firsthand the frustration it can cause in your everyday life and how it can touch each facet of life from business to personal. The best advice I can offer is to try to get to a place where you accept that you are enough just the way you are. You don’t have to be anything you aren’t in order to make others happy. Just be you. If that’s a good person or a challenging person just do the best you can and that is enough. We are all works in progress and it can take time to get to where we want to be. But, each day give yourself your best chance to make the day abundant and count towards the good in your life.

Find your Life Purpose in Numerology…

signification-spirituelle-des-nombres

At some point in our lives, we ask ourselves what our purpose is. What were we meant to do with this life? In a way, what is our mission? Often people will come to me wanting to know the answer to this area of their life. Unfortunately, it is not that simple. Figuring out our purpose is a journey, and more often than not, it is a layered journey. I wish I could tell this person, you are meant to be a teacher at this school. Or, you’re supposed to move to Alaska and own a fishing company. Sometimes, depending on where people are on their journey that can happen. But, other times, the person has to take specific steps and learn certain life lessons until either they are ready to step into or accept their life purpose. There are keys to that knowledge right in front of us if we just know where to look. When people are struggling with finding their purpose, I suggest looking at their Numerology Report. Even in ancient times, philosophers knew the numbers held a special code to our soul and purpose. Specifically, I believe that there four key areas of numerology that hold the key to unlocking knowledge of our life purpose:

Life Path Number – This number represents who you are at birth, and certain traits you will have through life. The Life Path number holds key aspects to your life journey and it often holds a person’s primary purpose of life.

Expression/ Destiny Number – This Number holds keys to how you are going to express your life purpose and how you are going to achieve it. This number also helps you look at the ebbs and flows of your destiny, and how ultimately your life lessons play into your life purpose.

Heart’s Desire/ Soul Number – This number holds information to parts of ourselves to which we may not be attuned.  This number is a reflection of the inner you, your authentic self, deep beneath the surface of your outer personality. It speaks to your true desires and motivations. This is what fulfills you in this life.

Karma Number/s – Personally, I feel that Karma comes into play for our life purpose because we are, most likely, working at both simultaneously throughout various times in our life. For example, if we had a karmic debit around money or success knowing this could help us take steps to resolve the karmic debit so we can achieve our life purpose.

Although, I personally believe a full Numerology report gives us the most comprehensive picture of our live’s journey. These four key numbers can hold the answers to those pressing life purpose questions. Sometimes, it is as simple as affirming information that we already knew about ourselves but didn’t pay attention to for whatever reason. Somewhere along the path in life we move from “if you can dream it you can achieve it” to “Dreams are just that” attitudes. We can become overwhelmed by fear and how we can even make that kind of change in our lives. Let’s be honest, no one really likes change.

I know we are living in a time where a lot of people are asking themselves key Life Purpose questions. I have put together a Life Purpose Program. For the month of July 2018 there is a 25% discount on a Divine Check-In. Use Code PURPOSE at checkout. You will also get a free Numerology report. For those just interested in the four key numbers we discussed earlier, I am making that report available for $8.00 on our ETSY Store, where you can also find information on our Divine Check – In: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ElysianLD

Read what people are saying:

​”I was so intrigued and fascinated by the Divine Check-In two of my coworkers received from Stacey at ElysianLD that I immediately contacted Stacey and asked her to do one for me too. I simply gave her my name and birth date and in less than a week, I had a 4 page detailed report all about me that totally blew me away! Not only did it fit me to a tee, it helped me identify various qualities and behaviors in myself that up until then, I had only felt intuitively. With my Divine Check-In, I now had confirmation with specific references of all the things I felt and sometimes struggled with internally. In fact, I was so captivated by the information I received in my Divine Check-In, that I decided to also have Stacey perform a Numerology Analysis for me a few weeks later. Once again, in less than a week, Stacey returned a 33 page comprehensive report all about me that delved even deeper into who I am and what I’m inspired to do on earth. Skeptics beware! This info is real and will inspire you to be the person you are meant to be.” – A

Many years ago, I was told what I was going to be doing with my life. I thought “yeah right”. In my mind there was no way that I could help people that way or fathom the thought. As with any life purpose you can have moments of crisis that knock you down so that things can fall together. As a result of my own experience I like to help people get in touch with their life purpose. Once, I started learning numerology I knew it was the cord that connects the two pieces where suddenly everything can make sense.

For those of you who are interested in exploring more about either your Life Purpose, Numerology, or any of our other services please contact me at contact@elysianld.com or https://www.elysianld.com/contact.html and we can create a plan that works for your individual needs on this journey.

Numerology is a large topic, and we will surely be discussing it again in future blogs. My personal favorite way to use it is looking at compatibility in relationships. Numerology is also helpful in choosing a place to live or a business name. So, stay tuned as we explore more about the power of numbers.

Mindfulness In Everyday Life…

We live in a multi-tasking world. As a society, we are checking our phones, checking emails, over-thinking about the day ahead of us, watching children, listening to conversations at work, thinking about our personal lives, health, love and goals and most of the time, we are doing all of this as we are driving, eating, walking and carrying on another conversation. Sometimes, when we are not being mindful, we can even affect our emotional system in negative ways, such as:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depression
  • Obsessive-Compulsive disorder
  • Relationship problems
  • Substance abuse

What if we could slow the mind down and actually be present in every moment of our day? What would that look like and how could that make us feel?  Mindfulness is a form of being present in our own lives and being an active participant in the moments that make up our day. This applies even to little things.

I cannot tell you how many times I have left my house in the morning questioning if I left the straightener plugged in. I found myself driving wondering if I would find the fire department at my house when I got back. I do not straighten my hair every day. On the days I do, I get out of my routine and am not paying attention to the activities I am doing because I am so consumed by leaving the house at a certain time. I had to literally stop everything I was doing and focus my attention on the act of unplugging the straightener in order for me to stop living in this state of anxiety over what I may or may or may not have done before leaving the house.  My acts of not being mindful include, leaving for vacation, driving 2 hours, then turning around and driving back 2 hours the same day because I could not remember if I left the stove on. One of the most plaguing of all is I am in such a rush to leave the house, that I can’t remember if I locked the door, or left something on. There are many times I am at the end of my driveway, turn around and go back in to check everything over in a mindful state. And, I think we can all relate to the drive to or from work and we do not remember how we actually got there.

There are many mental, spiritual and physical benefits derived from practicing Mindfulness, some include:

  • A zest for life attitude
  • Allows you to become fully aware and engaged in daily activities
  • Creates deeper connections with people in your life and enhances personal relationships
  • Reduces feeling of worry about the past and future and can overall reduce stress levels
  • Provides a more restful night sleep
  • Creates a stronger sense of overall Faith in your life

Forms of Mindfulness meditation have also been shown to be helpful in reducing blood pressure and reducing the symptoms of chronic pain. If you are just beginning and want to introduce Mindfulness into your daily activities it is ok to start small. Sometimes we think we have to jump in fully into a new lifestyle. Doing so can make the process overwhelming and that is where we can get frustrated when we do not meet certain goals. A good way to start is being mindful when you eat. How many times do you eat while doing another activity such as working through lunch, watching TV, reading, etc.? With every bite you take, be mindful about it. From chewing each bite to how it makes your body feel. Think of nothing else but processing the food you are eating in that moment. Even if you start by just doing this one meal a week, you will notice that you may realize you are fuller faster than you normally are, the food taste better, and you become more aware of exactly what you are eating.

Other ways you can practice mindfulness during your day are:

  • Start becoming more aware of yourself, your physical body, your emotions, your reaction to people, things and circumstances as well as your body language.
  • When engaging in conversation, give all your attention to the person. Put your phone away, shut off the TV, and have a conversation.
  • Set intentions for your day, or affirmations.
  • Set small goals for yourself. For example, each day pick something that you will be mindful about instead of being mindful about every moment while you are learning to incorporate this more in your life.
  • Practice Mindfulness Meditation
  • Staying present in the moment
  • Every morning and ever night, say three things you were grateful for that day.
  • Listen to positive uplifting music.
  • Practice Mindful eating habits/ Follow our Spiritual Detox Program : https://elysianlifedesign.wordpress.com/2018/04/01/doing-a-spiritual-detox-how-to/
  • Notice sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and touches.
  • Do a self-reflection of your day before bed and access ways you can incorporate mindfulness during the next day.

There are many great ways that Stones and Crystals can help you remain mindful in your life such as:

  • use during meditation
  • holding or carrying the stone or crystal during the day
  • sleeping with them

Any of the above uses can help provide clarity of thoughts and an overall sense of happiness and love. Here are some Stones and Crystals that can help you remain mindful and present throughout the day:

  • Amethyst
  • Carnelian
  • Malachite
  • Rose Quartz
  • Turquoise

The best thing you can do when practicing mindfulness is to keep it simple. Worrying about being mindful enough or too little will cause you more stress. Just do your best to be present in your own life. Pay attention to nurturing your body. Notice how you are breathing, eating, drinking healthy fluids and how you are thinking about yourself and expressing yourself. Become an active participant in your own life, and start noticing how your actions can impact moments in your day and can also impact your relationships with others.

“The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it. ” – Thích Nhất Hạnh

Your Divine Support Team…

image1

The Divine Support Team

We all have access to a Divine Support Team, and it can be one of the most powerful spiritual tools we could ever use on our spiritual journey. In many ways, it can be the ultimate connection to the Divine. It will open and expand your mind to realize that the Divine works in an amazing way beyond our understanding and if you haven’t experienced the Divine’s gifts first hand you would find it hard to believe it was real.  Are you ready for a key part of accessing your own Divine connection?

 

What is your Divine Support Team?

The Divine Support Team is very important to any healing process. It can be made up of your Guides, Power Animals, Passed Love Ones, Angels, Divine beings and any Deities you may work with already, or to which you feel a connection.

 

Why should you work with them?

Your Divine Support Team can help you stay sane during the healing process. It is easy to feel alone when you are going through a healing crisis of some kind. But, the truth is the Divine is always there to support you. You may have to ask for the healing, help, and guidance. It may not come instantly. But, your request will be heard and it will come.

 

How can you work with them?

Call them in every day. Ask them to help your ground yourself and remain open to hearing them, or seeing any signs they are sending. The more you work with them the stronger the connection will become, and the level of trust will enhance. Sometimes it is as simple as asking for help from them. We have to give permission for our Divine Support Team to intervene in our life. We also highly suggest that you not only the use of signs and symbols to connect with them but also use meditation and mindful awareness of your thoughts. Here are some resources to review for more information.

The Divine, and your Divine Support Team are an extension of the Universe. You will start to see miracles in your life every day by working with them and remembering to ask for help. You may feel that issues are unsurmountable in your life. But, to the Divine, all things are possible. Remember they are on your side, and your biggest supporter. I know sometimes things don’t turn out the way we would like. But, in most cases in hindsight, we can see the blessings behind why it didn’t happen, and understand the bigger blessings that we never imagined. Hold faith that however life works out that it will hold those Divine blessings for you.
