In this episode, I share how you can work with the energy of the cosmos. There is a misconception that the energy of the cosmos is happening to us. We often get caught up in feeling like the energy is bad or is working against us. The truth of the matter is it's all just energy and when we learn how to work with the energy it can make life much easier.

I also explain exactly how this energy works and give dates so you know when this starts and ends.

In this episode, I explore the second week of my book Light it Up! I take you on a journey a little deeper into the sacral chakra. I explain how the planets and zodiac have an effect on the sacral chakra. The sacral chakra is ruled by the planets Jupiter and Neptune and the zodiacs Sagittarius and Pisces. Each having a yin/yang effect on the chakra. The sacral chakra is home to our emotions, creativity, and feminine energy. The planet Jupiter helps us to expand and grow. It is difficult to do this when our energy is blocked preventing us from growing. The planet Neptune rules illusions and creativity. It is easy to see why we are able to create illusions about ourselves so easily. When the sacral chakra is blocked we often have illusions about what we think we are or what we look like. We create barriers and walls that prevent us from growing creatively as well.
In this podcast, I explain that right now both Jupiter and Neptune are stationed in their ruling zodiacs of Sagittarius and Pisces. This means that 2019 is a great year to dig deep into the sacral chakra and heal the trauma that is there. This year is primed for creative expansion and healing. It is also a good time to explore your own natal birth chart and see what you are bringing into this life astrologically.
The activities for this week are to give yourself a massage. The activity of giving yourself a massage is a step towards getting comfortable in your own body. It allows you to start feeling your body and making yourself feel good. This can be uncomfortable at first but it’s an activity you will hopefully grow to love.
The journal assignment for this week is to journal about your emotions. As soon as you wake up in the morning note how you feel. Write down any strong emotions that come about during the day. Notice if you have control over your emotions or if you have trouble showing your emotions. You can even take this a step further and track your emotions with the moon cycle.
There will be a solar and lunar eclipse this month with I will be talking about later this week.

The new year is right around the corner and the resolutions are running like wild fire! For the record I really hate the saying “New Year New You” like there is something wrong with the you that you are. I think you are fucking fabulous and you don’t need to be a new you, you just need to make yourself happy!
In this podcast I talk about how I have changed my view of New Years and making solutions. I used to make big goals and I used to help my clients do the same. The problem with this is that when we don’t meet those goals we end up feeling like shit. We don’t meet those goals because we have underlying issues keeping us from meeting those goals. Social media and television is over inundated with people trying to profit from our desire to be better. The problem is all of these people are preaching new year new you but you are the same person. They are not helping you change your energy patterns. If you don’t change your energy patterns you can’t change they way you operate. There is something deep inside that is causing you to lose weight or work at a job you hate and it’s not laziness. In this podcast I talk about this and how to set realistic goals.
I also address how you can work with the cosmos to set goals. In January we have a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse. These are great times to release what isn’t working and start new. I will be doing a full podcast on this very soon.
