Are you Committed to your Soul or to your Struggle?

This is a powerful question to ask yourself.

Not just once, but as you go about the day.

As you’re making your choices, what is your main motivator?

Is it your belief that God, Spirit, The Universe, Your Higher Self… is guiding you and has your back?

Or is it the false idea, the limiting belief, that yesterday’s struggles are somehow glued to you through tomorrow?

Your committment is the glue that sticks a situation to you. Release from the committment and you’re free. Commit to a new goal, or a new path, and it’s yours. Simple as that. Simple doesn’t mean easy, it just means simple. You’ve got to hold something you’ve glued together for a while to make sure that it sticks. Glue takes a while to dry.

 

 

 

I’ve spent plenty of time committed to the struggle too, so I definitely feel ya. Two years ago, I was deep in it. I’d come home from an office job that was just to pay the bills, that stressed me out to the point where I was getting sick all the time and felt so drained I had no interest in anything.

It was one of those jobs where the boss is a good guy, but yelled and swore at everyone. As an empath and a highly sensitive person, I just could not take it. It was the kind of job that makes a person like me cry in the bathroom.

When I’d get home, I’d put the quickest food possible into a pot or in the oven, and zone out to Netflix with the only free time I had (which felt like none even though it was hours). My health was SO far out of whack from stress affecting my hormones (which control SO many things in the body) that most of my money went towards seeing a naturopath to fix it.  I knew my everyday life was making me really unhappy, but I was very good at distracting myself from it, as a way to cope with that fact that I didn’t think I could change it any time soon.

Sometimes you can’t see how far you’ve strayed from your path until you put down your favorite form of distraction.

I was so focused on improving my health with the little energy I had, but here’s the thing. My lifestyle was throwing me back out of whack every time I’d get back in it. I was so committed to this job that was slowly killing me, and to the coping mechanisms (escaping through entertainment) that I used to try and unwind, and felt so unstable that I was afraid, SO afraid to risk losing that sense of foundation. Even though it was crumbling under me, and taking me down with it.

My lifestyle, and my committment to my struggle, were what needed fixing.

Does any of this sound familiar? Because the more people I talk to, the more people I see scared to take leaps of faith (big or small) to start to root their foundation in their soul, with the support of the universe, instead of being committed to the struggle of going against what’s actually healthy for them.

Leaps of faith don’t have to be massive. They can be as simple as looking at what’s out of alignment with your inner truth, and changing one small thing at a time to get closer to it.

There is a divine blueprint, a path laid out by your soul before you come here, and you can find it by feeling into what lights you up, vs. what shuts you down. Our lives are a combination of fate and free will. This path is always laid out for us, but it’s up to us to align with it, and choose to walk it.

There is a unique path just for you, divinely designed for your truest fulfillment.

For my journey, it took me some time to make the changes, but I took things one step at a time. I got a job that seemed more chill at first, doing office work from home. It gave me the opportunity to invest in coaching for the first time, and start REALLY building the spiritual coaching & energy work business I’d been dabbling with for three years. Investing in myself and in my soul’s purpose was the most powerful that I’d ever done. Having someone there to encourage and guide me back to my own center, keep me focused on my goals so I woudn’t give up or completely change paths (like I’d done over and over again before that).

I was finally starting to GROUND what my life had been teaching me and preparing me for for all these years. And YES, it was still a struggle. My job at that time started getting more and more stressful. I stopped and started a handful of times to rest and recenter, but never truly gave up. And over the course of only a year, I had gained so much confidence, had learned to trust myself to be able to make a living in a way that didn’t murder me in the face all week, but actually aligned me deeper with my core so that I could help others in the way that I knew I was meant to.

It started getting exciting to be alive again, because I had calls lined up with wonderful people who I was helping to line up with their path in the same way that I had been lining up with mine. These were people who were thanking me for our coaching sessions giving them the clarity and courage to do things like going on adventures to Alaska to find themselves after years in the corporate world, or realizing completely new ways that they could put their love of transformational festivals, retreats, shamanic plant medicines, and sound healing together into event ideas that were completely unique to their path and gifts to share with the world.

I started to become so lit up, and inspired. And even though I was still working that office job that was getting crazy stressful as they kept adding more to my plate and speeding up the pace, and making me sick again, I was on fire. I started doing more and more in my free time because I was determined to transition out of it. I was ready for a new environment and to be in my own element again.

I started doing reiki and readings on a psychic hotline type of website. I started collaborating with websites that were reaching out to me as I kept sharing my message. I had some money saved up and decided when I got really sick one week, that I couldn’t keep doing that to myself, I had to let go of that job. That was a major turning point for me. I had become so committed to my purpose that it was starting to replace the crumbling foundation that I was refusing to let take me down this time.

I kept taking step after step… writing, coaching, reiki & intuitive energy work, readings. Helping people. Empowering people. Inspiring people to be who they’re meant to be more strongly. Feeling into what I truly needed right then. And trusting. Letting go of the fears one by one, and trusting.

And then, as you’ll find happens when you commit to aligning with your soul’s true path… everything started falling into place.

I moved to Asheville this past week. Through focusing on alignment and taking action with INTENSE determination, it only took me a week to sort out the details, pack, travel, and feel at home. Never before in my life could I have set everything up and moved in a week. It was one of those situations where you look back and realize that we’re all capable of so much more than we realize when we step into alignment with our souls, our spirit, our inner being, and allow it to flow no matter what challenges come up.

I connected with the perfect roomies to live with who became instant friends. The perfect spa to be a part of. And got started on a new program with my own coach to really make the most of this powerful transition and first steps into this next incredible phase of my life.

So, I have to ask you… what is your committment to?

Your struggle or your soul?

Are you trusting and aligning, or suffering because you’re too afraid to let go of what’s dragging you down?

What in your lifestyle needs to be nudged back into alignment that’s been throwing you out of whack? What committments need to be broken altogether? And what new ones can we start to put into place?
I’m ALWAYS here to support you and guide you, into your own truth, so that you can show up, and ground your purpose, and make the impact that you’re here to make in the world.

Message me here for a free consult. I’d love to help you gain clarity and the courage to make a change.

Intuitive Healing/Reading Sessions

“Working with Jen has been massively transformative on so many levels. I’ve done two reiki sessions with her and she’s connected with such an open heart and eager ears. It’s been utterly lighthearted and fun as well as equally deep and very healing! It was a gentle experience where I felt seen, heard, loved and guided.

My first reiki session she explained the root of my core blocks, hidden karma and energetic imbalances that I hadn’t been aware of. The session itself was a beautiful meditative state where I felt my body become lighter and powerful physical shifts. She spent some time detailing everything that she had seen and I was amazed by how gifted and connected she is. It had given me answers to a lot of emotions I couldn’t identify as well as physical imbalances. I felt centered and empowered, like I dropped heavy baggage and was steered in the direction of my path.

I was reminded who I was and shown how guided I am, always. Before the second session I was having a lot of digestive issues and feeling so emotionally heavy. She worked through this with me and had shifted the energy entirely. She dives into your whole being physically, emotionally, energetically and really clears out any blocks while also giving the most heart-centered advice. She is such a beautiful soul with a powerful healing ability and the absolute sweetest and uplifting personality (which really, is a healing in itself). Her wisdom is expansive and her intentions are so pure and endearing, I am so blessed to have connected this way! Her work has weaved through my healing journey in the most impactful way.

I still drop into the advice and the messages that have come from the sessions and find the healing continue to trickle into everyday. Through my work with shamans, counselors as well as other reiki healers no one has been able to drop in like she has. Until next time! Much love !” 

– Carolyn Valentine, Mansfield MA 

Life, we often don’t notice, is really much more than it seems to be.  The world is a series of woven energy patterns and infinite possibilites that we move through.

In the work that I do with my clients, I combine my years of Reiki practice (Third Degree Reiki Master since 2010) with intuitive energy-work, the earthy pagan vibes that come naturally to me, the assistance of my (and your) guides and guardians, sound, movement, and intention to facilitate transformation in your field and align you to your core individual Truth.

This is always with the foundational intention of activating your unique divine blueprint… activating the potential of you being who you were divinely designed to be, walking your most fulfilling path, in the highest possible frequency reality of harmony for all of life that can be grounded here and now.

It can reach you wherever you are, and will give you what you need.

Which, sometimes, what we need isn’t the same as what we want.  Blockages will be realeased and can cause changes in our habits, patterns, and foundations.  So, be prepared for deep insights, facing harsh truths that profoundly free you, and more magical and synchronistic experiences in your everyday life.

Sessions can be conducted by video chat or phone.  For each session, we’ll set aside an hour and a half, so that there is time to perform the energy work, and then discuss the insights that were gathered, and touch briefly on how to best apply them to your life.

Insights can include any variety of information that your higher self and spiritual guides wish to impart to you during the session.  This information can range from starseed lineage information to animal totem presences, suggested herbs or crystals, and most commonly, plenty of detail about activities occuring around specific chakras or areas of the body, what is clearing, and often insight into the emotions, memories, or situations that play a part in the healing of that part of your field.

Booking Your Session

Inspired by a naturopath I used to see during difficult times, I offer a “pay it forward” system for my pricing.

Personally, I’ve always made it a priority to be patient, save up, and pay full price for energy work…

Because the more of your own dedication and personal energy that you put into something, the more deeply it grounds into your field, and the more present and dedicated to the experience you will be, amplifying your results.

However, we sometimes need something that is just beyond our reach…

And in a time when I really needed healing, a wondederful doctor offered this payment method and I was able to receive healing that I desperately needed, because other kind souls who were able to give a bit more, made this possible through their generous contributions and appreciation of this heartfelt approach.

The pricing options are as follows:

For those who truly need it now.
$126

Normal pricing.
$216

Pay it forward.
$286

To book your session, send a message here

To say hello, and share your availability over the next two weeks (pick two or three evenings that work for you to choose from)

And I’ll reply with a time that works for both of us, and let me know the pricing option that’s right for you.

It will be great to connect!

Much love, and talk soon!

Jen

P.S.  For those of you who are wondering, YES, I do teach classes…

However, I strongly recommend finding a local teacher you resonate with, unless you absolutely feel that I am the right person to teach you, as having local support and building community is so powerful and will bring so much goodness to your life and to the area where you live. 

I do rarely teach and attune over a distance if you feel very strongly that you should learn from me, and classes are offered in person during retreats.  Feel free to reach out if this is something you feel is right for you.

More testimonials…

“This experience was so great. Jennifer was extremely welcoming which in turn made feel open to discuss my problem. She was so professional, understanding, and knowledgeable.

Post our initial session I woke up feeling so refreshed and elated! & the magic is still manifesting here, it’s only day one!. Haha. Thank you Jennifer. I recommend her if you want true results and great customer service. She certainly goes the extra mile! :)”
-KD White – Hampton, VA

“You rock!!!  Thank you so much I appreciate it!!!  I couldn’t remember my dreams for the life of me last night but I know I was having them because my husband said I was tossing and turning and laughing and talking throughout my sleep and I woke up feeling energized and in a wonderful mood so thank you for that. ❤
-Shanell Renee – Los Banos, CA

“I was introduced to #Reiki back in 2012 by my best friend and cousin extraordinaire, @_aquarian.goddess_and GIRL. In those seven years since, I have seen some s**t. 

The introduction to Reiki and level one #attunement created this whole new world (a whoole neww woooooorld) for me. It completely shifted my perception of reality which has totally changed my life.

When you’re learning Reiki, you’re not just learning how to heal someone… You’re learning how to heal yourself. You’re learning how to approach things gently. You’re learning why you, or others, hurt. You’re learning healthy ways to get past things. You’re learning patience. You’re learning how to understand. You’re connecting. You can feel energy moving and flowing and breaking free and just unleashing and I gotta tell you, there’s nothing like it. 

It can be a seriously intense experience sometimes. I even have an example of how crazy this can get. I was in a kind of low place in 2014, and @_aquarian.goddess_ did this #hardcorehealing Reiki session on me one night before work and when I woke up in the morning… oh god. I was vomiting like crazy. She cleared so much junk out of me that I was physically purging. Like. It was INTENSE. Very soon after that, I left the job that was making me really unhappy, never to return, and began down a never ending path of growth, learning and evolution. 

Reiki also offers this hardcore sense of comfort. Even when it gets rough like that, you can almost feel someone rubbing your back or holding your hair or something. I dunno. It’s weird. But it’s awesome. 

The energy work Jen (@_aquarian.goddess_) does digs REALLY f*****g deep in there and just really gets to the root of it all to gently encourage detangling and intense reconstructive repair. 

The way I feel after receiving energy work, or even after my Reiki attunements from her, its’s just lightning fingertips. I always feel like I’m Queen Goddess, King of the Universe. My confidence levels elevate, my spirituality is stronger and clearer than ever before, my decision making is improved, I see ‘the bigger picture’ more clearly, I feel refreshed and just GOD. A MASTER OF THE FRICKIN UNIVERSE. *ROARS*

#DM@_aquarian.goddess_ if you’re interested in her energy work because it really gets so much deeper than just my past experiences. She’s seriously pure magick.”

Why Sage is Your Besty | Energy Cleansing Ceremony & More | Aquarian Goddess

One of the best ways to create the feel you’d like in your home, or in your day, or to just get in the zone, is smudging with sage.

Along with its spiritual cleansing properties, it is also antibacterial, and releases beneficial negative ions into the atmosphere (the same kinds released by waterfalls and pink salt lamps).

Sage: Witchy Tips
@_aquarian.goddess_

Witchy tips: Sage is for more than just smudging.

While it may be our go-to, sage is more versatile than a lot of us tend to make use of day-to-day.

A sprinkle of culinary sage on your dinner, with a positive intention, can have a gentle healing and cleansing effect of the energy of all who taste it (while having a wide range of medicinal properties including immunity-boosting and reducing inflammation, and promoting balanced blood-sugar, and mental clarity, while being anti-microbial and straight-up tasty). A tea of culinary sage can be sipped for wisdom, prosperity, and to comfort sorrow.

A tea of any type of sage can be spritzed around the house for cleansing and protection for those whose sinuses are sensitive to smudging, or a few drops of an essential oil can be added to a diffuser to disperse it through the house, or add it to a ritual bath (bonus cleansing if you also add salt 😉). You can keep a plant of it near you door as a guardian, even if you just have space for a small potted plant.

The leaves are a powerful “paper” for writing your intentions for manifestation, and keeping it under your pillow can ward off bad dreams, or in a sachet with abundance intentions (or in your purse or wallet) to increase your wealth.

Different sages have different specialties. Clary sage can uplift the mood. White sage is the most potent protector. And creating your own intuitively guided way to connect personally with the spirit and energy of sage will strengthen any of these results.

Remember to trust your power and your allies, and everything will unfold as it’s meant to. Happy witching, friends. 😉

For guidance on your spiritual path, and intuitive energy work, send me a message. I’d love to help your purpose unfold.

Join me in a little cleansing ceremony to shift your energy for today, and experience how calm and powerful you can feel when embracing a ritual mindset for yourself during your day.

 

 

It’s a beautiful thing to make the decision that today, in this moment, you are creating a positive change.  That you are doing something to make your life a little better.

Keep with these positive changes all along the way.  And sooner than you realize, you’ll be looking back at the you from ten years ago so proud of how far you’ve come, and shining with a confidence you never knew you’d have.

And I’ll be here with you along the way, supporting you as a sister, however I can, Goddess to Goddess.

An alternative perspective on: Why you aren’t where you’d like to be

1. There’s a bigger picture.

What you’re wanting might be one small piece of a puzzle that will change your whole life years from now. Diving deeply into creating, or teaching, or immersing yourself in one path might prevent you from a whole variety of world views or experiences that transform you in ways that you can hardly begin to imagine yourself to be. Everything is temporary. Just like the 80s, and the lifespan of your favorite cat, things will always complete a cycle and become something new with the passing of time.

Your current experience of spirituality will evolve as new ideas reach you. Your entire outlook is likely only a distant cousin of the one you had ten years ago. Your current approach might not fit your future nature.

There is so much that I look back on and think, “wow, if I’d only known who I’d be a year from then, I’d know why that didn’t work out.” We are always on the verge of a breakthrough or transformation, and when we’re heading a certain direction, we never know what The Universe is going to surprise us with that changes us from the ground up.

Considering that what you’re desperately attached to, the path you’re taking towards the goal that you neeeed to work out with a exasperation and pain… miiiiight not be the best option, will open up access to the ideas and possibilities that would fit who you’re becoming like a glove.

2. Impatience, escapism, and perfectionism…

They hold us back more than we know. We want to be the brightest and purest lights, the most dedicated, the most free, the most accomplished in our ideal sacred profession. We want to notice only the things that we feel good about. And it causes us to overlook a lot.

Where we are now is not an accident. What does this place have to teach us, that will help us to create a stable future that has room for all the flexibility we need as individuals, while embracing the reality of our position unconditionally? What do we participate in on a daily basis that helps us to move forward in a way that supports us as a whole?

3. Influence and Intimidation

We are surrounded by people with opinions.

This spiritual teacher says this, my friends think that, my heart wants this, my rational mind thinks I’m a cuckoo bird. What do I do?

You look at two things:

  1. What’s healthiest and most fulfilling for you long term, and…
  2. What is the most steady path to get you there without sacrificing your values.

Everyone thinks that they know what’s best for those around them, but these are merely birdsong around a tree. Feel into your depth of your roots for answers, and feel how beautiful sweet blossoms can ripen fruits at the height of your being as you focus on nourishing yourself from your center.

We are so much more than who we are in this moment. And when we embrace that the version of ourselves we see in the mirror on this day, is evolving in accordance with our sacred inner truth… we find the strength to lead ourselves in new directions. With a sense of wholeness, regal prowess, and integrity.

Be well, my fellow life-shapers.

And as always, I am here with you, Goddess to Goddess.

All my love,

Aquarian Goddess Jen
