Harnessing Your Feminine and Masculine Energy

For a very long time I was very much into the masculine energy, except I didn’t know it. It wasn’t until I became a Reiki Practitioner that I even knew about the difference between feminine and masculine energy. To give you an idea of what each are, here is a list: Masculine harnesses boundaries, being in action, confidence, honesty, accountability, integrity, non-judgmental and security. The Feminine encompasses, boundaries also, your intuition, grounding, empathy, being supportive, authenticity, magnetic, open, trusting, creative and reflective. 

The one I was in the most was being in action, I grew up in a male entrepreneurial home and it was all about working hard, going non-stop because hard work equaled success. Now those are very important traits, but I was running myself into the ground! I was missing out on quality time with my kids and husband because I felt I HAD to work constantly to get where I wanted to go. The ironic thing is when I started realizing my feminine energy and what it could do for me, was when I started seeing more success! I was also being forced to rest more because my body was starting to respond to stress by getting me sick! So, I knew I had to listen and make these necessary actions. 

Knowing more about the feminine and masculine energy traits, take time to reflect on what you harness more of and then I want you to pick the top 3 traits from each and start focusing on those. It’s time to bring some balance if you don’t have it yet and I’m telling you, it will change your outlook and your life for the better. This is also going to help you with the flow in your business because when we feel more aligned with what we’re doing the easier it is. 

I hope this information was helpful and in what ever you do, you seek out both!

Affirmations

I used to think affirmations and personal development in general was a waste of my time. I had no idea the importance or the link between success and mindset. It is so true, what we think about we bring about, whether that is coming from our conscious or sub-conscious, we need to learn how to repair any damage that has been done. We have to make sure we are feeding ourselves information that is going to help us not harm us, especially when it comes to our sub-conscious mind, this is what attracts those thoughts to us. Haven’t dealt with a trauma and keep attracting similar situations? Do you notice you always think about how difficult something is, like how earning money is so hard and you keep getting the hard? It’s because you are essentially asking for it and the Universe/God is listening. So what can we do? If it is something very serious or traumatic, you should speak to a professional so you can work on those things properly, this could be someone like myself who can help by using Reiki and EFT or it can be psychologist or psychotherapist. Who ever and how ever you feel most comfortable, do it!

For a lot of us, we just have these signals from childhood, like always hearing “money doesn’t grow on trees” which then gives us a scarcity mindset around money for example or other sayings like that that were drilled into our sub-conscious. These are the things that we can do some work around to change that type of mindset and affirmations is a great place to start! If you know how to tap, do that while you’re saying them, it is very powerful! Here are some examples of money mindset affirmations:

There will always be enough money

Money is infinite, if I need more, it will come

I am worthy of making a lot of money

My experiences and education allow me to make lots of money

I am smart

I am beautiful just the way I am

I am capable

I am a strong leader

Now you may be wondering what those last few have to do with money blocks, but not feeling worthy or good enough also tells us we’re not good enough to be financially successful, so we need to get through those too.

I truly hope that these are helpful and I wish you all the success you deserve!

Money Blocks!

This has got to be the number one reason we fail in business and it also happens to be a big problem for women in particular. Blocks with money and having the confidence to show up proudly as an entrepreneur can definitely be an issue! So here are some tips for you to get passed them.

– keep up with personal development, start with something easy like You Are A Badass. It’s light, funny and will make you enjoy reading these books

– Get connected with someone in your industry who can help AND cheer you on

– Start taking baby steps to get out of your comfort zone. When you do this you will find that you can do hard things and it will grow your confidence.

– Use your oils! There are some great oils to help you feel worthy. Try Bergamot!

– Learn how to tap! Also known as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).

Announcement!

I am really excited about some changes I have made to my business! With everything that I have learned about running businesses and growing my social media, I know that I can help other healers in growing their business as well. After being a mentor to others, it has given me the confidence to move forward with this more publicly. I love teaching and I love leading others to greatness, so here we are! Going forward my blog posts will be about growing your business, so even if you’re not a healer this will also be beneficial for you. I have seen and heard the struggle from practitioners during this time when businesses have had to move online and I have not had that problem. My business has grown and thrived because I have always had multiple ways of earning an income. My husband and I have come to realize how important it has been for us to have many streams of income and I am sure I am not alone in this! Being able to pivot online quickly has been crucial to not only sustaining my business, but growing it and having the most successful year yet! If you haven’t had that kind of year, think about what you can do to make the changes needed. Can you do what you do online? Do you know how to grow your social media following? Do you have products AND services you can offer? If you don’t have these in place yet, now is the time. Even when things open up more, having an online presence can bring about more flexibility than you have ever had! Imagine being able to work from anywhere? This is what entices me to stay this course, because I am REALLY looking forward to traveling again! If you need help or have any questions about how you can move online, feel free to reach out. Here is to all of our successes!!!

In health and wealth, Amy

Start 2021 Feeling Good!

So 2020 has come to close and although it was a difficult year for so many, let’s face it, it also brought us some clarity with so many things! Although 2021 won’t be perfect, we can certainly make it our own. You are perfect the way you are and if there are changes you need to make, it’s because you’ve decided that they’re good for you. I feel like there are so many great social media accounts out there helping women feel better about themselves so if you’re not feeling great about what you’re seeing, then unfollow and look for more accounts aligned with YOU.

I participated in an incredible energy clearing, online, using essential oils, it was very impactful and gave me the best sleep! Here are some immediate tips I can pass along that you can use right away.

  1. Take the time to take a few deep breathes
  2. Apply tea tree oil on the top of your head and in your elbow creases, this helps to clear the “noise”
  3. A great blend to use that can help with manifesting is: 5 drops each of Marjoram, Green Mandarin and Cardamom in a 5 ml roller bottle and then fill the rest with fractionated coconut oil, apply this to the inside of your wrist creases and heart.

This is such a great way for you give yourself some care and focus for the day! I wish you all health and wealth for 2021.

Your truly, Amy

Let’s Finish 2020 How We Want To!

I feel like we’ve all been waiting for this year to end! But I really want you to take this moment to think about what really happened this year. I see 2020 as 20/20. Who here has had more clarity? Or maybe you’ve realized what’s REALLY important. Or maybe it was just really tough and you’re looking forward to a fresh start. Either way, working on our mind is going to take us through the rest of 2020 to bring in a stronger better you in 2021. You may have heard this from me before, but if you aren’t incorporating personal development you MUST. I was so resistant to it for years and when I started reading and expanding my mind, that is what has grown my business and has given me the tools to really reflect on me. This has helped me with business, but this has also helped me in my relationships. When we have our mind right this will attract more flow and ease into your life. I’m not saying it’s easy, it has taken me years to get where I am now and I am still working on myself, but it has been worth the time and effort. If you’re not sure where to start, reach out and let me know where you’re at so I can get you to your next step in this process. We all need a little help sometimes and that’s what I’m here for!  I have some great and free resources that I would love to pass onto you!

I truly wish you an amazing holiday season and all the best for 2021!! May it be full of love and laughter!

Dealing With Stress?

Not only is this time of year normally busy and stressful, but I feel like this year is a whole new ball game! Keeping our stress levels down is very important as stress can lead to so many issues, mentally and physically. Emotional issues end up physically effecting us, whether that is unhealthy weight gain, heart issues or physical pain like tension headaches. Looking for some suggestions to keep your stress away? Read on then!

To help with tension pain Peppermint essential oil is very effective and can help relieve headaches if you end up getting one. But to keep your stress levels down, diffusing essential oils is a great way to help you! Here are some of my favorite calming diffuser blends:

1. 2 drops Black Spruce and 1 drop Cinnamon Bark

2. 2 drops Wild Orange and 2 drops of Lavender

3. 2 drops of Tangerine and 2 drops of Juniper Berry

Some other efforts I make is to exercise regularly, get a good night sleep and add adaptogens into my diet. To help me sleep I take a restful supplement and also find taking 2 drops of Vetiver internally helps so much, it really calms my mind and allows me to fall asleep quicker.

Here is a great link to learn more about adaptogens, how they work and suggestions as to what you can take to get them into your system.

End Of Year Mayhem?

This time of year can be very overwhelming, there are so many things to do and get done! We have to make sure we also take care of ourselves. This is a gentle reminder to take some time out for yourself, because YOU matter! Something that I do and that makes such a big difference to my well-being is a hot Epsom salt bath with Lavender oil. It completely rejuvenates me and helps in detoxing my body from stress, I actually feel it melt away!

The great thing about this time of year is the reflection we do about what has happened but also what is to come. A new year can bring hope and excitement but it can also bring on anxiety about “what if” doesn’t happen etc. This is where tapping or Emotional Freedom Technique came in handy for me. This is a great technique to get rid of that baggage we might carry around and the thoughts that creep in that steal away our happiness and what we truly desire. When I was introduced to tapping for the first time, I cleared so much that I doubled my sales within 3 days and hit my goal for the month just in time! That was very eye opening as to what tapping can do for my subconscious. Imagine what it can do for  you!

In health, yours truly, Amy

Make It Happen!

Dreams come in many forms, but they don’t happen unless we make it happen! We have to take the steps in the right direction, find that path and keep going, even if we are unsure of where it might lead. I never sought out to write a book or become a published author, but then came an opportunity to do so with Golden Brick Road Publishing and to write a book called I’m 30, Now What?. I didn’t know or think I had much to offer, but I have realized we ALL have our own amazing story to tell. What came out of being an author is what I’m most excited about.

Full disclosure, I love being in front of people, I have been public speaking (for fun) since fifth grade and acting on stage since seventh and love it to this day. I get shaky (a mix of nerves and excitement) and there’s an adrenaline rush that occurs right before I hit the stage and that is my favorite kind of high. I was asked to be a part of a fundraiser for a shelter in Toronto that helps women escape domestic violence, not only to donate a few books towards the cause but also to speak. This was the first time I was asked to be a part of an event, I didn’t go looking for it! What’s interesting is that when our book was released the proceeds went to UNWomen, which is also a similar but international cause, so I was elated to be a part of something directly in my community. Doing what I love while serving my community?? YES PLEASE!

When I was trying to figure out what to talk about, I decided to choose empowerment. I feel like in today’s climate women need to be reminded how amazing and empowered we are and can be. This is also a theme throughout my book. It’s about women having choices, which I completely align with being empowered as well, WE CAN DO AND BE ANYTHING. This event was about getting women back on their feet. It was full of great music, dancing and eating delicious food! It was put on by an event planning company called Nic Nacs Events, as this particular shelter once housed the owner. I didn’t know this until she spoke about it and I couldn’t believe it! This woman is a force to be reckoned with! She just had her FIFTH child, started this business not that long ago and still made sure she was able to give back to a place that helped her rise up. Now, that is empowering! I sat in awe of this strong woman and ever so thankful she was introduced to me. I was there to empower and speak to these women, but listening to her and seeing what she has done was monumental. You know how people say you are the best of the five people you surround yourself with? Yeah, she’s one of those people you want to surround yourself with!

Just my opinion….

As you may be aware of, Ontario’s Liberal government has rolled out a new plan for prescriptions to children and youth under the age of 25. This, my friend’s, enrages me. The reason being? There are a few. I’m not against some prescriptions, I have used them for myself and my kid’s in the past, when it was really necessary, but now that it’s free, will our kid’s be over prescribed? Now you won’t have to think twice about whether or not to fill that prescription because it’s free! Don’t we have enough of an issue with prescribed medication, like addiction and antibiotic resistant bugs? Let’s make it even MORE accessible and start them nice and young (lots of sarcasm going on there). The problem I have with most prescribed medications is because they are used as a band aid solution. There really needs to be funding for things like Naturopathic doctor’s and other holistic practices that can actually help you with the source of the problem which could in turn make that symptom go away. When I was diagnosed with osteo-arthritis there were a couple of meds I could have gone on, but all they did was decrease pain (actually they said they MIGHT decrease the pain), harm my kidney’s and liver and therefore could potentially give me problems and other health issues in the long run. Instead, I was on a completely safe and natural supplement and used food as a way of feeling better and it worked! Imagine that?? And I’m so thankful because with food, which was the main source of pain relief for me, actually made me healthier! I’m hardly at the doctor’s spending my provinces’ money.

I feel like the Wynne government is so short sighted. Why make a population dependent on prescribed medication? In the long run wouldn’t that create other problems as they age? Ohhhh wait a second, maybe this is what’s so appealing to big pharma and why they would strike a deal with our lovely government (sorry, there’s a lot of sarcasm going on). Once those kid’s reach 25, they’re going to have to keep paying to get what they are dependent on. It looks like those extra earnings the pharma companies are going to get before they turn 25 will just keep on coming. Well played!

The reason I don’t agree with this is because there are families who are struggling with just having a roof over their head and do not have access to healthy food. These are very important in preventing the need for prescription medications. We need more funding for things like affordable food, we should be helping our farmers not these giants. This is costing Ontario $465 million!! Imagine what we could do with that, instead it will be to giving these big wigs an increase in their yearly bonus. Did you know that there is NO room in the budget to go towards affordable housing?? I just feel like Wynne’s priorities are not in the right order. To make it clear, I really hope that the people who truly need prescriptions for their kid’s can have access to them, no matter their income, but let’s try as parent’s to use other ways to heal and help our kid’s stay healthy and happy long term, because our government is not going to do it for us.
