I have often written about journaling on this blog. However, I have recently transitioned to automatic writing for about 20 minutes every morning. This has allowed me to tap into a higher guidance system. Rather than writing about problems or fears I am having, I pose a question, connect with my higher self, and allow myself to write down the wisdom that comes to me. I have found this to be both empowering and healing, as it allows me to step out of my day-to-day story and into a higher perspective.

This morning I sat in my meditation corner, listening to healing music, wrapped in a cozy blanket. I had trouble sleeping last night because a lot was on my mind. A project I am involved in is taking longer than I had hoped to get off the ground, and there is a lot up in the air. Instead of harping on this story, I wrote this:

What is the potential for you, if you were able to see the future as something that could be known–that there are many probable future destinations. You have the power to choose which outcome you would most like to see. The outcome you would like should be focused on solely for it to come into physical manifestation. You can draw pictures, create a vision board, and ask to see this for the highest good. When you think of how to serve others, your power increases significantly. It you were to focus on numbers and money, people would sense your fear and stay far away. But, when you focus on service and affirm that you will receive more than enough to meet your needs, all will be done in Divine Timing.

Much more empowering than a whiny journal entry about money!

If you happen to be in the area, I’m giving a workshop on Intuitive Journaling at Terraloka Wellness in Kent, CT on October 11th. Comment below if you’d like to join!

It has been almost exactly a year since I last posted on SpiritualiTea. Although there have been many changes, my overall mission has remained the same: to offer a warm, safe space to explore spirituality (with tea).

What has been going on for me? Well, I became a life coach (yay!), began doing professional intuitive readings, left my job…more on that in a later post. I’m currently living life on my terms and have never felt happier, or more inspired! I began creating other blogs that I thought would perhaps express my new self, but in the end I’ve come back to SpiritualiTea as my home.

I’m excited to begin posting here again with a new voice and renewed passion.

There will be book suggestions, helpful resources, musings on my own spiritual life, and of course tea!

I also have a new feature: I will soon be venturing into the video podcasting world, and I hope to take you along with me! Each week I will post a new video providing an intuitive reading for the coming week’s energies. Grab a cup of tea and sit down with me on Sunday morning to find out what the week will bring for you.

Finally, I have two exciting offerings: the first is an online course that trains you to be a SpiritualiTea Facilitator in your community. Learn how to start a group, keep it going, gain members, find friends, and make a little extra money along the way!

Second, I am offering private intuitive readings by phone or Skype. I would love to get to know you and offer clear, accurate, empowering guidance on any challenges you are currently facing.

It feels good to be back.

Peace,
Shannon

Recently I was watching Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday and she was interviewing Thich Nhat Hanh. It was a beautiful interview in its entirety, but one part of it has stuck with me. She asked him how often he meditated. In the moment before he answered I expected him to answer with something like “Every day for a few hours.” Instead he replied that he lived life as a meditation, waking and going about his day in a meditative state. This spoke to me. Often I feel peaceful and happy while meditating, but the feeling does not last throughout my day. If I make a conscious choice to stay in a meditative state, relaxed, open, and peaceful, without judgment, each day would have more possibilities and beauty.

Since hearing that interview, I have tried not to let my morning meditations end. Even though I may leave my mat and make breakfast, go to work, and continue my day, my practice is now becoming much deeper. Meditation is not something reserved for certain parts of the day anymore, but a continual state of being.

“Many people are alive but don’t touch the miracle of being alive” –Thich Nhat Hanh

Via

I especially love the word “touch” in this beautiful quote from Thich Nhat Hanh. There are truly so many miracles that are right within our grasp, so close we could touch them if it were not for fear, or our limiting beliefs. This week begin to reach a hand out to miracles. Begin by sensing the miracle of your own body, then extend this awareness and awe to everything that surrounds you. Begin to see your dreams as tangible and touchable. Touch what unfolds before you.
