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!

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

The last Full Moon of 2016

 Full Moon Release Ritualfull-moon

At the full moon, the energy builds and builds….there’s an explosive outgoing aspect to it. All of nature grows and is more vital at the full Moon. This surge allows you to take action on behalf of those New Moon intentions you set two week prior.

A full Moon ritual might involve taking one solid step, with a symbolic action. And it can be a powerful time to release, cast out, unburden yourself, purge, etc. You celebrate your emergence by stepping out of an old skin, identity, behavior, attitude, relationship. The ritual helps you by marking this inner transformation in a formal way.

A full Moon ritual might involve purification by one of the elements. Most often, it’s fire, and done by casting something you don’t want into the flames.

1) Write what you’re releasing down on a stick, or write down your release on a piece of paper.

2) Resolve to let go as you throw it into the fire, or you may also burn in a fire-proof bowl (Please use caution and stay safe)

3) Throw the stick or paper into the fire with a STRONG INTENTION of release

This can be done as a group, with everyone sitting ’round the fire…or in your own private ceremony. Each person can seal their action of letting go by speaking it aloud, if there’s trust in the circle.

Water can also be used to cleanse in rituals. I remember a very meaningful full Moon ceremony I had at my house with three    other women. We had filled a blue bowl with water and some rose petals. Each of us wrote down what we wanted to draw into our lives on a piece of paper. After we read them aloud, we put our hands in the bowl to signify the cleansing of the old, to open to the new. It’s still one of my favorite memories. Mainly it worked because we all trusted each other to be open hearted and share our dreams. When that’s there, you can evoke the magic of shifting consciousness at will.

Items you’ll need: Floating candles, a large bowl, water, matches, pen.

  1. Create sacred space with candles, sage smudging, and setting up altars with powerful totems. For some rituals, I’ll use owl’s feather that I found, to represent wisdom.
  1. If possible, stand or sit under the Moon. Allow yourself to feel a direct relationship to it, as a mover of the living waters of the Earth and within our own bodies.
  1. Do a grounding exercise, to bring you out of the chatter of small talk and into ritual space. Feel the earth under your feet and shake out the tension in the body.
  1. Place the large water-filled bowl in front of you, or in the middle of your gathering on a table.
  1. Each person writes what they’re releasing on the floating candle. It’s not important that it shows up, just that the intention is there.
  1. As you place the candle into the bowl, declare what you’re releasing.
  1. Light the candle.
  1. Allow yourself to feel the transfer of what you’re releasing to the candle. As a group focus on letting go into the water, holding hands if that feels right.
  1. Celebrate this release by sharing a feast under the full Moon!

Allow the candle to keep burning in the bowl as a symbol of the letting go process. The flame is a purifier, and symbolizes the sparks of inspiration as well. If you blow out your floating candle, and your bowl is in your home, relighting it will remind you of your commitment. Place inspiring pictures and totems around it that remind you of who you’re becoming. Above all, give yourself kudos for honoring your own growth.

Space Clearing RitualSpace Clearing

To cleanse the space in which you are working, light your smudge stick and smudge yourself and anyone else in the room.  Walk around the room, wafting smoke into each corner..  Call on the spirit of sage to drive away all negativity from the room.

 

Then ask the spirit of sweet grass to bring harmony and balance into the room.

Move to the corners of the room and briefly stand still.

Turn to the East of the room and fan smudge out into that direction four times, saying “Spirit of the East, great Spirit of Air, cleanse and inspire this space.”

Turn to the south and smudge four times, saying “Spirit of the South, great spirit of Water, strengthen  and bring peace to this space.”

Turn to the West and smudge four times, saying “Spirit of the West, great Spirit of Fire, energize and protect this space.”

Turn to the North and smudge four times, saying “Spirit of the North, great Spirit of Earth, ground and cleanse this space.”

Return to your original position and look up toward the heavens, this time sending smudge upwards four times, saying “Great Father Sky, guard this space from above.”.  Finally, squat toward the floor and send smudge down to the earth four times, saying “Great Mother Earth, nurture this space from above.”

Put down your smudge stick and stand quietly with your eyes shut.

Visualize the great spirits you have summoned standing guard around your room.  Give thanks to all of them.

Blessings, Much L☮♈️☪ Cynthia )0(
