WARRIOR GODDESS WEDNESDAY

Sometimes you’ve got to let everything go – purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything… whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you’ll find that when you’re free, your true creativity, your true self comes out. ~ Tina Turner

In order to bring in the new, we must release the old. Sometimes letting go can feel scary: we want to hold on to the past like an old familiar blanket.

But to bring in the new we need to be willing to create space, and then trust. In the mysterious gap where the old and the new don’t yet meet is where the magic happens.

Today, where can you let something go and hang out in the precious space between?

We’re in the #newmoon right now, the perfect time to set intentions for your dreams, goals and desires!

From Exhausted to Empowered & New Moon Intentions

Thank you for being here with me, if you’ve been here for a while or are new to
Essential Energy Healing….I welcome you!

Hiya Gorgeous!!!

Like many of you, I have been going through lots of transformational changes that sometimes are very challenging, but once we have come through, there is a deep sense of gratitude for the lessons and healing and we feel so much lighter and clearer.

In fact, I have been feeling so amazing this past six months, I want to share something with you today!  I can’t help it….
 Little did I know how my life would change so much in 3 months

If you would have told me 3 months ago how amazing I would be feeling today, I would have told you, not very likely.

My life has drastically changed.  I. HAVE. MY. LIFE. BACK. 

I know so many who struggle with auto-immune issues, high blood pressure, diabetes, chronic exhaustion, inflammation and pain, just like myself

As you may or may not know, 6 years ago I was diagnosed with Lupus – a chronic autoimmune dis-ease and have struggled with exhaustion-sleeping all the time and having to sleep during the day, severe infections, severe inflammation, chronic pain, mild depression, anxiety and just well, like shit.  Not my old self in any way.  I struggled with many long dark periods but I’m pretty stubborn as some of you know and am fighting to get back to wellness again.

Then, 4 years ago, more problems with food intolerances, food allergies and more, so 2 years ago I cut out all the wheat in my diet and started a pretty clean eating way of life for me…..or so I thought.

Still problems with my stomach, more intolerances and allergies so I did a full 40 day elimination food reset this winter, which was once of the best things I could have ever done.

Although I did the full elimination food re-set and tried to re-introduce certain foods, they just don’t sit well with me, my energy and how I feel.  I was feeling pretty good overall, but still struggling to have the energy I wanted every day, I still had to lay down for a rest every day. Not exactly top notch yet, but certainly moving forward.  I’ve been on an Autoimmune Paleo Diet for about 3 months now and have noticed huge changes in the energy….but still not where I wanted to be yet, so I switched over to a Ketogenic way of eating, and I again, noticed some big big changes thinking…..Oooh, nice, my body like this way of eating.  YES.  EUREKA!!!

With me being in the “healing” business, so many people have approached me with “goods” that they thought would help and I know it was all offered from the hearts of those who offered.

I’m pretty cautious and hesitant to try any new products.  I stay with what I know works. I tried lots of them and either they had no effect at all, or overstimulated my already overstimulated immune system, then I would crash again.

4 months ago, a good friend I had not seen in a while invited me out to lunch.

I’m like, well I don’t know what the hell she’s doing, but she looked fantastic.  At that time she told me she was trying a product but wasn’t on it long enough yet to share what she was doing, so after another  month we met again and the changes I saw in her were just incredible!  Her eyes were clear, her skin was glowing….I had to know what she was up to and she offered a few sample packets of the product.

Immediately I noticed I had a really gentle and subtle shift in my energy.  Hmmm…I was thinking oh yah, right – it’s probably overstimulating my system again so I did a ton of research, as I always do on any product I’m taking. And of course I did some self-testing and found that the information I was reading made good sense in how energy is made in our body.

Within the 1st week, I was up and about with good, steady energy all day, no naps needed.

After the first month, I was out for longer nature walks, getting out of the house every day to do something, see someone – something that was not “normal” any longer for me and I’ll tell you, I was pretty excited.

What she DIDN’T tell me was:

  • I would have no more chronic exhaustion and have to take daily naps
  • How much better I would be sleeping (all night even) & waking up feeling good
  • I would feel like a new person – Happy Dance
  • I would get my life back – YES I do
  • How amazing my energy would be
  • No more mental fog and memory problems
  • So much focus
  • My anxiety and mild depression is almost gone (YES)
  • I would have the energy and want to offer 1 on 1 session work again after a 2 year hiatus
  • I would participate in events and gatherings that I would not have normally participated in 2 or 3 months ago due to no energy, not wanting to drive

Now, that happy, confident person that people see, matches how I feel on the inside, now. It is mind blowing that I didn’t even realize this until a week ago when I was chatting with a friend of mine and she said “Wow, you look so great – I have not seen you look so good in years!”

A lot of people start this journey for weight loss.  Me, I wanted my life back and I’ve got it.  If I’m losing a few pounds in the meanwhile, I’m good with that too.

If you…..

  • Struggle to get out of bed in the morning
  • Rely on caffeine, muffins and sheer adrenaline to get through the day.
  • If your clothes dont fit, you’re grumpy and lumpy and barely recognize your tired-ass self in the mirror every morning…..
  • Have trouble finding your “off” switch
  • Feel worried, disappointed or disconnected
  • Want to empower your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual self
                                                                                                                                                  
  • Wake up rested and refreshed, ready to take on the day.
  • Have fast & sustained energy so you are productive at work, crossing off things on your list while feeling balanced and awake.
  • Reduce Brain Fog, Increase awareness and finish the afternoon stron
  • Get through your day with no energy slumps or distracting cravings.
  • After work you still have plenty of energy to devote to your family and friends, and your relationships are peaceful and fun because it is easy to be patient, kind and loving when you have enough energy.
  •  At the end of the night, you wind down gently, so that when you lay your head down, you feel relaxed, grateful and loved.
  • You fall asleep effortlessly and enjoy deep restful sleep, so you can be at your best tomorrow, ever!

Here are my New Moon Intentions!!!  

I Cynthia Sebry, am a beautiful, inspiring, passionate, sassy, fearless, powerful female, mother, wife, warrior goddess and reiki teacher that changes lives, kicks booty, conquers what life throws at me and I help others to find there sparkle again while showing off my own. I freaking rock and I Pruvit every single day!!!

New Moon is Thursday, May 25, at 1:44 PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT).

You can experience this new moon either from a place of despair and suffering over loss, confusion or chaos in your life, or you can be in deep gratitude for the experiences that you have had and the lessons learned. The impermanence of life should be honored and the nostalgia of times past celebrated.

This could be an emotional moon with a sense of wanting some space to be alone. However, community is important as well and it is advised that you get support to be in a space of beauty, love and wonder instead of dark despair. Even though a new moon is a time for going within and resetting priorities and intentions, this moon does have an element of reaching out for community support.

There is an aspect of this new moon that invites us to forgive whatever you think is wrong or has been wrong so that you can move on with your deepest desires. If you are still chewing on parts the past with resentment, guilt, shame or anger, this is a good time to let it go.

MOON BATHING RITUAL
  • Did you know that at the New Moon, the body’s ability to detoxify is at its peak?  Bathing at the New Moon has an effect that would be similar to a 3 day detox!  It will adjust and decontaminate the body and support the removal of toxic build up, whether it’s environmental, physioloical or emotional!
  • Himalayan Sea Salts or Epsom salts are both wonderful for your Moon Bathing Ritual!  Add 1 cup to you bathing water, and bathe approx 20 – 30 minutes.  Do not towel or rub dry, allow your body to air dry (yes, really) and if possible, relax afterwards ~ quiet reading or bed is preferred!
  • You can add some candles and crystals for an amazing experience!

I have some amazing gatherings, workshops and Reiki classes lined up this Spring!

Own your Light, Lead from Spirit, Widen Your Impact 

Cynthia has been the “Soul” owner of Essential Energy Healing here in Lacombe for the past 10 years

Why do I do what I do? 

I love to serve women who are ready to discover greater self- awareness, a deeper spiritual connection, emotional healing, authentic creative expression and to live a meaningful and passionate life as they age with grace, wisdom and vibrancy.

My practice is grounded in the pursuit of balance between mind, body, and soul, as I fully believe in the power of self-healing.

I work with women who are ready to commit to doing the sometimes difficult, always rewarding work of creating the life they desire. Whether it’s navigating transition (divorce; career change; getting older); personal development (including emotional, mental, and spiritual growth); and stress management, I will whole heartedly walk with you every step of the way until you have achieved that which you desire.

The reason why I do what I do is that I come from a place of transition myself… high anxiety,anger, and two Auto-Immune di-eases (Lupus and Celiac). I learned that you had to work hard for everything, that life was a struggle and that you had to earn your worth at every turn.  But that it not Truth!  Life does not have to be a daily struggle and through balancing the mind, body and soul with self-healing, self-care and knowledge you can stand in your power!

Sending you love and light 

Breathe…Be Healthy, Be Happy…

Cynthia

Monday’s Message ~ May 7th, 2017 | On Target

MONDAY’S MESSAGE

This beautiful message comes to you today from Cheryl Lee Harnish’s Divine Guidance Card Deck!

ON TARGET

Keep yourself focused on the outcome, goal, or result that you are aiming for right now.  This card has come to you because you may be faltering or questioning yourself.  Just let go of your doubts and fears.  Your life and your goals are right on target.  Keep your intentions clear, stay grounded in your heart and follow whatever intuitive nudging you may feel.

Spirit is working with you on an energetic level to help you bring your dreams to fruition.

If you read last week’s card message, from Goddess AINE -Leap of Faith.  “Take a risk, and put your hearts’ true desire into action!” Then this weeks card speaks strongly to keep focused on what that leap of faith was last week.

We are 2 days away from the next full moon, so it’s a wonderful time to let go of any doubts and fears !

Monday’s Message~May 1, 2017 | Goddess AINE

                MONDAY’S MESSAGE

This beautiful message comes to you today from Doreen Virtues Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck.

Goddess AINE

Leap of Faith.  “Take a risk, and put your hearts’ true desire into action!”

Message from Aine:  “Procrastinating about your dreams won’t make them go away.  Neither will it make the happen.  Indecision is the death of the soul’s burning passion to improve, grow, and learn.  Don’t worry about making a wrong decision.  Instead, worry about making no decision at all!!!  Then take time to pray, meditate, investigate, research, go on a nature walk…and make your decision.

“Once made, the universal energies will immediately support your decision, and doors will successively open as if by magic.  The magic, you see is that you’ve set your mind to accomplish something.  And this intention is what sets you on your magical journey.  Trust that the universe will support you in all ways.  Trust your intention is clear and right for you.  And then take a leap of faith and jump fully and squarely into the midst of putting your dreams into action.   Don’t hesitate or delay a moment longer!

This message speaks strongly to something I’ve been wishing to share about my own healing journey , although this card today was specifically intended for YOU, it speaks to everyone, loud and clear about stepping outside our comfort zones.  Take that risk.  What have you got to loose?  Really. The only way we grow is to step outside of our comfort zone!

I invite you to leave a reply as to how this card speaks to you today on my blog.  Where have you been procrastinating?  What have you been “putting off”.

It’s May 1st, Beltaine….time for a fresh start?

The ART of Reclaiming your Warrior Goddess

RECLAIM YOUR WARRIOR GODDESS
Interactive Workshop 

The ART of Reclaiming Your Warrior Goddess SASS –Weekend Workshop – Next Workshop will be in the Fall of 2017 ~ please sign up for our Newsletter to stay in the loop for dates.

If you are interested in hosting a Warrior Goddess Weekend Workshop in the Central Alberta area, please contact cynthia@essentialenergyhealing.ca to set up this amazing 2 Day Workshop!

Sometimes begins with a small whisper; the voice in the back of your mind nagging you to make a change. But then you are faced with the what? Or how? Or is it too late? For others, the call to great change is a loud blaring siren, a take-no-prisoners upheaval that shatters everything they thought they once knew.

The whisper is starting to be heard, the deep wisdom awakening from slumber; the longing in our heart’s and the sacred medicine that we are yearning to bring into being is rising.

Do you hear it?
Are you called to awaken to your own divine Warrior Goddess path?
Have you felt the pull in your own world to move in the direction of your medicine?
Are you ready to live your purpose?
Do you feel the call to make a change in your life?
Are you ready to put an end to self-limiting thoughts, beliefs and patterns?

It is then time to say YES to you. Your LIFE…..Welcome Home!

If you don’t love and honor yourself with every fiber of your being, if you struggle with owning your power and passion, if you could use more joyful play and simple presence in your life, then it is time for an inner revolution. It is time to claim your Warrior Goddess energy. ~ HeatherAsh Amara

As women we are searching for a new freedom, the freedom from self-judgment, comparison, and struggle. The freedom from trying to take care of everyone else and forgetting ourselves in the process. The freedom to be the women we are meant to be.

Imagine giving yourself this freedom: to be you, 100%, and to love all of you. Yes, you can learn to love and accept all of you.

Join me in this 2 Day Interactive hands on Workshop where together we will create a new foundation for healing, power, and transformation.

In this interactive series you will learn how to:

Commit to yourself with compassion and humor
Unwind old agreements and beliefs that no longer serve you
Find your authentic expression
Walk with joy on your path of transformation, even when it is challenging

This is an interactive workshop, with follow-up exercises and full support after the class

• Commit to YOU
• Align with Life
• Purify your Vessel
• Ground your being and free your past
• Energize your creativity and sexuality
• Claim your strength and ignite your will
• Open your Heart
• Speak your Truth
• Embody your Wisdom
• Choose Your Path and Overview

COMMENTS FROM PRIOR REGISTRANTS:

“I loved being able to connect with women who had been through so much and were willing to open up about themselves so that I felt I could open up to them. Cynthia created an energy that kept us going and on track so we couldn’t “run away” when things got real. The homework made it really sink in, its one thing to take a course for a couple hours, but to have to continue the work at home with all your distractions and really dig in deep and then continue with it the following class makes all the difference to me.” ~ Ayla

“The Warrior Goddess Reclaim Workshop is a valuable learning and growth opportunity for women to give to themselves – your Warrior Goddess needs and deserves this time for her. It’s an empowering mix of meditation, self-reflection, group discussion and movement that will touch your heart and shift your mind towards change. The full impact will unfold in the weeks, months and even years after the actual workshop. Thank you, Cynthia, for this gift!” Sandy

“The guidance of Cynthia and the fellowship of the group resonated with me. There was much collective wisdom and the group format with Cynthia’s encouragement allowed the wisdom to emerge. Cynthia gently challenged us to test our assumptions and explore other ways of looking at our lives and honouring ourselves.”

Mondays Message ~ Archangel Michael ~ Shield Yourself

Monday’s Message ~ November 7, 2016 ArchAngel Michael | Sheild Yourself

aangel-michael_sheildyourself_essentialenergyhealingThis card from Doreen Virtues Archangel Michael Oracle Card Deck came out strong this morning!

This card indicates that we are all especially sensitive to energies and emotions right now. Archangel Michael is shielding you from harsh energy, but it`s also important for you to take action steps to help with this endeavor.  Avoid situations where anger and/or competition are expressed.  Stay away from places which can attract lower energies, like bars and malls.

Follow your natural inclinations, such as keeping to yourself or spending time with gentle, loving people and spaces.

Possible Specific Meanings:  Wear/carry a protective crystal.  Make sure you’re physically protected, including up to date health and auto insurance, etc.  Use caution in dealing with this situation or relationship.

If you practise Reiki, ground and shield yourself DAILY!!! We are still completing around the New Moon energies from October 30th, which is still influencing us!  Some completions are easier than others and will require forgiveness as a part of the letting go.

What are you still working on completing?

Archangel Michael Prayer

Archangel Michael, I ask yo to protect me, my loved ones, my vehicle, and my home with your powerful shield.  Surround us in your purple light, which allows only pure love to penetrate.  Please stay with me day and night, and keep my loved ones safe. (name specific people or situations).

BALANCE

I’m always so excited when I’m in tune with the Universe!

img_2086This morning, I was reading through the “Theme for October”, which is all about Balance.  October is a time to carve out some space for integration of what we have gone through the past few months.  Personal boundaries will be tested as we strive for more balance.  A great month to observe and tackle addictive behaviors, black and white belief systems, mood swings, irrational fears and attachments to the past.

SO….This morning when I pulled out my Oracle Card Deck “Divine Guidance” by Cheryl Lee Harnish….can you just guess what flew out of the deck and landed right on my keyboard?  You got it.  BALANCE….

Life is all about balance and this card is here to help you create more balance in all aspects of your life:  work and play, relationship time and alone time, social time and quiet meditation, physical activity and rest, giving and receiving, feminine energy and masculine energy.

Balancing out each aspect of your life will enable you to give your energy to the world in a much more grounded and centered way.

Oh, and for some reason I can’t get the photo to edit, so….a lesson in itself that sometimes, things are ok just as they are.

 

Goddess Guidance ~ Bast

IMG_1898Most Mondays, I love to pull a card, just for YOU!  Todays Goddess Guidance card is from Doreen Virtue’s Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck.  They are simply amazing and I love them so much!

This morning, BAST is calling to you…INDEPENDENT ~ “YOUR INDEPENDENCE IS A FOUNDATION FOR YOUR STRENGTH AND SUCCESS.”

Message from Bast:  “Like the cat, you’re fiercely independent, yet you also need affection and playful companions.  Now is the time to balance your social interactions with solitude.  While you may ask others for their opinions ultimately you must make your own decisions.   Your freedom and independence are top priorities, so ensure that these characteristics are nurtured.”

  • Spend time alone
  • Give yourself permission to play
  • Ask for your needs to be met
  • Make your own decisions

Bast’s Archetypes

The Warrior:

  • Represents physical strength, and the ability to protect and fight for your rights and those of of others.
  • Whilst the shadow side of the Warrior reflects the need to win at all costs, abandoning ethical principals to prove your supremacy.
  • Bast is a Warrior protecting her father and the Pharaoh. As a mother cat figure she is fierce in the protection of her young.

The Lover:

  • Represents passion and selfless devotion to another person. It also extends to the things that make our hearts sing, like music art or nature.
  • The shadow aspect is obsessive passion that completely takes over and negatively impacts on your health and self esteem.
  • This Egyptian Goddess had many lovers. She is also associated the pleasures of music, dancing and perfumery.
