  • 15 minutes – 2.5 hours, spend as much or as little time as you would like
  • Chair
  • Desk or table Place to stand, preferably outside
  • Notebook and pen- track your experience after each prompt to “be quiet here and feel
  • 3-6 index cards

These methods helped me write my book. I continue to use them for myself as well as share them with clients and my meditation class.

I start the workshop by scanning each participant with my hands, making note of areas that get my attention.  It is a good idea to take a few minutes before doing these exercises and make notes of anything you notice in your body. If you are working on your intuitive abilities, this is especially important to use this ‘muscle.’

A bit about me before we get started:

If someone would have told me in 2010, that I’d be an author, I’d would have nodded. If they would have told me I’d be making a living doing energy work, I would have fallen off my bar stool laughing. As with all things, it has been a process and continues to be. I am a very intuitive person. I do energy work because I was drawn to it and then I realized it appealed to me and it was, in fact, part of my life purpose.  Another reason I do energy work, including writing, is because I am sympathetic to human plights such as addiction, depression, unhealthy weight and general ill health. It is important to me to create methods to support myself and my clients.

I understand my journey to get HERE started sometime before my birth but specifically my energy work started in 2009. Health issues lead me to kinesiology. The Kinesiologist to a numerologist. Numerology lead me to be open to my intuitive abilities, which lead to Reiki and, more specifically, to my intuitive healing abilities. I kept my writing hidden for many years. It tried to push and shove itself into my life, until I cleared the fear. That is what this manual is about.

This could also be titled “Speed dating for the Soul”

Call these methods anything you would like; grounding, clearing, knocking down blocks, but what we really are doing is making a connections with our deeper selves. We are creating both space and opportunity to know our true selves. It’s in that space we find our creativity and all the yummy bits, that hopefully, we want to share with others.   

#1 you can’t do this wrong  
#2 there are millions of methods, I’m just showing you a few so you can work with them in whatever manner feels right to you
#3 I welcome you to share your thoughts and questions while we go through this process. Everyone will get more out of it if you do.  If you are reading this without my direct instruction please go to Facebook or send me an email at theenergygarden@outlook.com if you have  questions.

Grounding~do this while standing up~

             Science behind it-This is the science in a nut shell- we could take an entire hour to discuss this one alone. Our bodies are made up of electrons, your heart and brain use electric impulses. Free radicals gum up the works. You can limit free radicals but not entirely. Grounding or Earthing is another term, adds electrons to your body through the bottom of your feet thus displacing some free radicals.   Antioxidants do the same thing.

Demonstration and Participation – Please stand up. Spread out. Yogies in ‘tadasana’, (video) stand in a comfortable position, close your eyes, you can visualize roots coming from your feet into the earth or put your minds eye into your feet to feel energy. 

Relax and Feel

Best place for grounding: Ocean Water, then Beach, then Earth: Dewy grass. After that any porous material with water: cement but not blacktop, tile better than wood

(1-3 minutes)
Breath- another good way to clear space is with your breath. Breathe into your heart, bending over clears your head.

            Demonstration and Participation- diaphragmatic; that is using your entire diaphragm to breath.  (AKA: BoB’s Bottom of the Belly Breaths- weekly reminders at my Facebook page). At first, too many of these might make you feel faint, just do as many as feels comfortable and then pick a breathing pattern that feels the best to you. 

            In Breath/Out Breath- lets practice the in/out. That is to say, think about your in breath to make you tall, light and long as you breath in and increase your connectedness to the earth(feet to the ground, your bottom to a chair) as you breath out.

            Colors- white is clearing, green healing, purple intuitive, red/pink passion. Visualize the color coming in with the breath, as it circulates it grabs up what you don’t need and on your out breath releases it.

4 Count- (Ha- means four) count to four on both the in breath and the out breath

Be Quiet here and FEEL-

 Ho oponopono- Hawaiian, ancient way everything is energy and Ho oponopono is a way to make things right. “Hawaii” translated means land of people who breathe so it seems very appropriate!  This is why Hawaiians call white men ‘ha o le’, lazy breath  

        Method: 7 counts, inhale, hold 7 counts, exhale 7 counts hold 7 counts this is one round do 9 rounds. Stand up please- begin your hooponopono breath –(reference Dr. Len)

(3-5 minutes)
Visualization ~sitting down~

            Demonstration & Participation-  Eyes closed, visualize a cleaning tool of your choice. A white rose, a QTip, a vacuum, feather duster, swirl it around your body parts, starting at the head, moving down to your neck and face, to your R arm then your left, past your torso, hips, R thigh, R knee, R foot, L thigh, R knee, R foot. Discard your cleaning tool with a blessing. The energy you just removed does not serve you but could sever someone or something else.  

Quantum Clearing-Quantum seems to be the buz word these days and thrown around in science and in conversations/literature about metaphysics and the like.

Quantum:
 I really like Cynthia Sue Larson’s https://tricia-gunberg-6aqb.squarespace.com/config/pages/52f291f3e4b03da5553e211btake on it in her book ‘Quantum Jump’. I have tried some of these body postures and seen some of them in action in the past. Her over-all theme is “fake it til you make it” and she has the science to back it up. Let us practice some of the body postures.

Sitting up straight- creates confidence

A “power pose”- behaving like an extrovert-

             Hands on your hips

             Leaning over with palms on a desk

             Sit with feet up on desk and hands clasped behind the head

Pick a posture and BE STILL HERE AND FEEL

I AM

          Statements/Affirmations

You can rewire your brain with affirmations, it helps to push negative thoughts out. “Thoughts are things.” Science has proven this too. Placebo effect and scientist’s own thoughts which effect test results. 

Creating our own affirmations-

  • For writers and creatives:  "I am a creative writer." "I write with ease and grace." "I am creative." "I am engaging."
  • Based on your numerology: My book gives you easy to follow instructions on how to create your own affirmations specific to you!  

        Sound

Music and sound can have a profound effect on your mood. Need to set a mood to write a sultry character or scene? Pick sultry music. Need to pump yourself up for an important meeting? Pick rock music, think ‘Eye of the Tiger’.  

Sound of ‘OM’. I am not much into the idea of chanting but have noticed something happening in me when I following along in yoga class doing the classic ‘om’. Primal breath, which by the way is three letters A U M, represents the three stares of consciousness: awake, dreaming, sleepless dreaming. Reference:  pg 158, ‘The Lucid Dreamer’ by Malcolm Godwin.)

These 3 I saved for last, I have them in my mind as a “HOE” not just an acronym so I can remember them but also because these are methods that dig down deep. They contain the potential to release emotion, memories and really bust through tough blocks.
 

  • Handwriting- “Change Your Handwriting to Change Your Life” by Polly Cady, Certified hand writing annalist. She has studied handwriting of serial killers and those with personality foibles. Her book looks at the positive attributes and as the title states, to make positive changes. Changes I have made:
                         Lower case: g,j,y    they are your money bags so make the bottom loop big

                     Crossing your t’s- cross through the middle means suffering. I decided I was no longer here to suffer and have changed all my t’s to upper case with an affirmation: “I am not here to suffer”. Deciding this was not very positive, I soon changed it to “I am here to enjoy life” and “I live with ease and grace.” Then to “with ease and grace’. Now I don’t say it every time but when I catch myself making a lower case T, I erase it and say “Control/Alt/Delete, ease and grace, ease and grace.” 

Use 3x5 cards and decorate them!

Use 3x5 cards and decorate them!

  • Organizing Oracle- I use these when I want to create a schedule for myself and don’t know where to start.(Update: used them for myself then added it to my book “Say Yes to Who You Are to Create Fitness.)  It will feel like a ‘boss’ is telling you what to do – but it is really yourself and Law of Attraction. My oracle cards (N.O.W. update: getting them designed) started out generic:

go for a walk
research an agent
free choice reading time
watch TV
TAXES (Yuck!)
 Free Choice
Watch tv

 Funny how I never, no matter how many times the “watch TV” was added, I never picked the watch TV card. (attention moms:  I used this method as a homeschool teacher. The kids would have several favorite activities written on a card for  free time choices. They would pick a card to see which one they would do. This helped a lot: less fighting, more variety, less time wasted deciding.)

 I used my initiative abilities to pick the cards now. If you are unable to do it this way, do not worry, trust that whatever card you pic is the right one. Use index cards to write a “to do” list. Estimate how much time you have and how many cards/activities you can actually do or pick the cards randomly. (more instructions in my book: Chapter 3 section How to Work With Your Oracle Cards)

*Note: This is a practice in letting go, trust and using your/improving your intuition, aka: intuitive abilities

 Essential oils-  Use with a carrier oil on your hands with a light massage. Your hands do a lot of work, appreciate all they do for you.

Frankincense penetrates your brain- why they can’t fix Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s because of the barrier that essential oils can penetrate–read from page 7 in Modern Essentials book, fifth edition

I end the workshop with a Q&A and scan the participants to see if they have cleared the energy spots that I detected before the workshop began.  Those practicing to use their intuition are encouraged to scan themselves.

If time is allowed, I like to share this poem to end the workshop:

Mirror, Mirror
While searching for meaning in all that is, in dreams, illness and challenges, these words came to me.
The people that I meet are but an image of me.
 Am I so full of anger, resentment and worry?
The events that occur are but a reproduction.
Am I so full of hatred, sadness and fear?
The dreams that I have are an echo.
 Am I so full of insecurity, regret, and loneliness?
The illnesses I endure are but a resonance.
Am I so full of withholding, controlling and lacking?
A case of mistaken identity, I hoped and I supposed.
But the messages keep repeating.
Why is it that I do not see these reflections of me?
For this case of mistaken identity, what do I need?
 Until I can find the correct focus, this is all I have,
I do love you.
I am truly sorry.
I do beg and plead for forgiveness, for all of this and so much more.
My affection for you runs deep and true.
I thank you for your love and your patience.

Help me create a Wellness Revolution!

Love and Light,

What's going on?

Whats Going On this week, June 18, 2017?

Repeated numbers, weird ‘symptoms’, gurus and Father’s Day.

As I began wondering what all these things have in common on this Father’s Day, my own father came to mind. He taught me many things but, mostly he encouraged my writing when I as a kid. I didn’t clearly hear this message from him until I was in my 40’s and not until 3 years after he left this earthly plain.

Ah ha!

The light bulb went on. I see the thread of all these things.

Repeated numbers.
Weird Symptoms.
Gurus Messages.
My dad.

First I will go into a bit more detail about each of the messages this week.

"3" intuitively interpreted by Tricia Gunberg. If you see this repeated number, your message is to creatively express yourself! 

"3" intuitively interpreted by Tricia Gunberg. If you see this repeated number, your message is to creatively express yourself! 

Repeated numbers:

I often see the question about repeated numbers. What does it mean to see 3 digit numbers, 111, 222, 333, 444, etc.? When I first noticed them in 2011 I was studying dream interpretation and looking for answers about life in general. I recall seeing 4:44 on the clock in my car and mentioned it to a friend. I believe that was the first time I heard Doreen Virtue being mentioned.

The repeated numbers come and go. The most noticeable being in 2013 when I 5:55 came to me several times a day for several days. I knew 5 meant change and I was not feeling well for several days but I didn’t understand I was more sick than I realized and needed to go to the doctor. I waited it out, didn’t honor myself and got so sick a trip to the ER was required. This is my interpretation of the repeated numbers and unique to me- not everyone who sees 555 is getting sick. Now when I see it I say, “Oh good change, I’m ready, I’m paying attention.” 

For a long time after I would go looking for the answers, trying to figure out the message of the repeated numbers. Each numerologist/intuitive/psychic having their own interpretation or they just repeating Doreen Virtues interpretation. Then I began to intuit my own interpretation. I’ve discovered repeated numbers in a numerology chart grabs my attention so applying so I pay special consideration to them for the reading I give.

333 Repeated numbers, Numerology by Tricia Gunberg 

333 Repeated numbers, Numerology by Tricia Gunberg 

Currently, a day doesn’t go by without seeing a triple repeated number. Just yesterday 333 came up 3 times and the number 3 was in my daily tarot card with advice to meditate with 3 candles, 3 flowers and 3 incense sticks. The number 3, by the way, is creative expression and communication. More specifically for me, it means writing…just as my dad told me to do!

In short, repeated numbers is an indicator that you are paying attention, or being more mindful. You’ll find the meaning for yourself, allow the answers to come, getting quiet and knowing there is no need to force. To get a brief list of numerology for numbers 1-9 read my book. (only $3.99 as a Ebook.) "Say Yes to Who You Are to Create Fitness"

Weird Symptoms:
I share these with you for several reasons. One, as an empath I need to keep track of what's going on so I remember to ask “Is this mine?”, because most if the time it is not. Second, its a good way for me to do readings for myself, I have forever (2010 with Heal Yourself Louise Hay) been linking symptoms to old beliefs I can let go of. Lastly, maybe you have something weird going on and you can relate. Maybe, just maybe, you’ll reach out to me so I am not alone in my weirdness.

 

The symptoms I have been having and as well as odd cravings have me a bit baffled.  My intuitive abilities are ‘empathic’ meaning I get a feeling in my body which is a translation of what is going on in someone else. I in turn attempt to interpret the message. This is how I do my readings. Lately, I don’t even need to do the ceremonial ‘placing my hands over someone’, it just starts happening. Last month, an hour prior to an appointment I began having a headache.  This worried me as I work hard on not have any interference in my own body while doing readings. (Right down to planning when/what I eat, brush my teeth, shower, etc.) As the headache intensified I wondered if I needed to reschedule the client. The thought came to me, first as a question “Is this mine?” then as a statement, “This is not mine.” The headache began to subside. The headache was a message for my client- so glad I didn’t make a decision based on fear and cancel the appointment! 

Another new development is a new sensation in both my hands and feet. These occurrences have not gone without a witness, I might be to chicken to share them here if I hadn’t. I’d describe the sensation as heat. Heat from my hands is not new. Many of my client’s report feeling heat from my hands and I am aware of it as an empathic message during a reading. What is different now is the intensity of the heat and the fact that I am not in the process of doing a reading when this occurs. My feet have also just ‘turned on’, two people describing it as heat, another describing as a tingling sensation.

Now for the cravings. I’ve been craving cigarettes for about 8 months- but never indulging. I’ve been breathing in and out as if l were smoking has sorta helped. Then I got the craving to use salt or sand on the palms of my hands. Almost daily as if they itch (I wouldn’t describe it that way though.)and the scrubbing relives it, slowly easing away and creating a feeling of ease and relief. Same for my feet. And I must, can’t tell you how nuts it makes me feel if I don’t, I must walk in rough sand for several minutes several times a week. The had scrubbing seems to relive the cigarette craving too. Both of these cravings make me feel a bit nuts or is it the manner in which I escape them that make me feel nuts?  I wonder if this is how crazy people start out or how OCD starts. I indulge, but what if it starts taking me over?  I mentioned it to a trusted person who does energy work and she seemed to think it was a natural way for my body to ask for clearing and grounding. With my new stronger empathic abilities, more clearing is necessary. (click here for more clearing and grounding ideas)

Gurus

I had an ‘er duh’ moment when deciding that most of the gurus I follow are saying the same message, just in a slightly different way.

I’ve been reading Eckart Tolle (I highly recommend 'listening' to his books) again, this time with more understanding than ever. Eckart came into my awareness around 2014 or so. I recall reading it thinking it was like Shakespeare and was in need of someone to interpret it. I now can hear a thread of the similar message of Abraham Hicks teachings and it makes sense to me now.

Abraham teaches us to say “Yes” to joy as often as we can. Eckart Tolle teaches us to do one of three things: accept, enjoy or be enthusiastic about everything. Basically, and how he puts it, you say “yes” to every moment that occurs. My study of numerology, my gratitude journal (on day 66), my practices of both yoga and meditation has helped with this. Also, reminding myself that thoughts are things, currently with added depth of meaning, so I continue to use it.

Life is happening FOR you, not ‘to’ you. Seeing messages and gifts in every moment takes practice. This also repeats the theme of the Law of Attraction. You know this to be true: like attracts like. If everyone around you is accepting, enjoying and enthusiastic it means YOU are those things.

Not overnight, not all at once. As a process that could take years, decades, a life time. I am watching my life unfold with these new awareness’s, chronicling them. It’s been fun and interesting. Especially the sharing part- that’s been exciting (when scary turns good). Many days I am not even close. Having more minutes of resistance is quiet obvious. That is only because I now have more moments of joy then ever and I know I have quadrupled my enthusiasm for life.

When you take moments of silence you are telling the Universe “Yes”. “Yes” I am ready. “Yes”, to who you are.  As I take the long way around the block to make my point. None of this information, from the important message to write to the seemingly unconnected symptoms, would have come to me unless I had taken moments to be quiet. Not minutes and certainly not hours. Just a few moments here and there when I would allow an answer to come or just to allow awareness.

Say “Yes” to what is happening in every moment, counsels Tolle.  I’ve been suggesting, “Say Yes to who you are,” of course it’s a good starting point. And Abraham advises; say “yes” to things that bring you JOY!

Just checking my meditation prompt for today and:  And here we have the message AGAIN: “Say Yes”, read more of this excellent post here: www.achangeloracle.com Angel Razbar 6/18/2017

Love, Light and “Yes” to who you are,

 Am I so full of anger, resentment and worry?
The events that occur are but a reproduction.
Am I so full of hatred, sadness and fear?
The dreams that I have are an echo.
 Am I so full of insecurity, regret, and loneliness?
The illnesses I endure are but a resonance.
Am I so full of withholding, controlling and lacking?
A case of mistaken identity, I hoped and I supposed.
But the messages keep repeating.
Why is it that I do not see these reflections of me?
For this case of mistaken identity, what do I need?
 Until I can find the correct focus, this is all I have,
I do love you.
I am truly sorry.
I do beg and plead for forgiveness, for all of this and so much more.
My affection for you runs deep and true.
I thank you for your love and your patience.

Stillness, Silence and Aloneness, Oh My!

Here is a comment on my "3 Easy Steps to Getting Clarity" post

 

Does the thought of meditation scare you?

Stillness, silence and aloneness, oh my!
Stillness, silence and aloneness, oh my!
Does the thought of sitting still make your skin crawl?
Stillness, silence and aloneness, oh my!
Stillness, silence and aloneness, oh my!
Does the thought of being alone make you want to cry?
Stillness, silence and aloneness, on my!

 

My business mind could not be still, nor allow being alone and not thinking.  I took pride in my multi-tasking ability.  Raising a family, running multiple businesses, designing buildings and luxury properties, throwing parties, spending time with friends, attending charity events, and volunteering at my children’s school meant not time for such things. I was living the dream.  

As a child I was quiet and compliant. By putting my energy into playing sports I received some validation. I learned early on that by doing, by getting up early, by working your fingers to the bone it was a measurement of your worthiness.  So I put myself through college, working hard, trying to prove to myself and others that I was worthy.  Not knowing myself, decisions were based on input from other people. I spent a good portion of my life creating places, businesses, planning events and controlling situations to ensuring my life looked a certain may.

To me, being alone was a pathetic place of nothingness. It use to scare me enough to make me cry just thinking about being alone.  I didn’t need to be with people 24/7 but having many people in my life was important to me. Certainly, I was alone at times which was okay but I would plan an event or find ways to bring my team or friends together. Having a group of people I cared for meant they cared for me and the more I had the better I felt about myself. I became really busy creating the life I thought I wanted or the life I should have. Other people’s happiness became a gauge in which I measured myself and my own happiness. I had no idea of what I really wanted or what brought me joy other than the happy faces I saw in the people around me.   

I was successful and creative in my efforts but rarely did I feel acknowledged, appreciated or loved.  After creating so much beauty in my life and having what I would consider success, I was still depressed, lonely and incredibly sad.  No amount of money, jewelry or success made me happy nor did I feel any more validation or worth. I was still feeling alone.

For years I saw therapist and read every self-help book. I continued to seek out the answers through every means available to me including hypnosis, journaling, dieting, (oh if I was just thinner I’d be loved)  but I did not understand what was wrong with me.  I considered antidepressants but I wanted the answers to the problem, not a drug.  I was scared, hurting, depressed and I felt lonely. I went on creating more and doing more, hoping this would bring the love, the trust, and the life we wanted together.  No amount of work or creating made a difference and my marriage came crumbing down.

Without a partner, someone to count on, someone to fill in the proverbial “in case of emergency” line on documents I felt alone.   Honestly I am not sure I really felt it I was just afraid of what that meant in my own eyes.  Being alone meant such an ugly tale and meant no one loved me.  I felt the need to be acknowledged in having a relationship.  Sounds weird, but I didn’t want to be the single girl when all her friends were in relationships.  I felt pathetic in family photos without a man standing next to me, validating that I was worthy. Exhaustion, numbness and a sensation of living outside of myself became my new existence. I started to mediate because multiple doctors said “slow down, reflect and mediate”.  I n the past I had tried it, including hiring someone to help me as my mind just would race. This time the need was more urgent.

A turning point for me was learning a releasing technique called the Sedona Method which is a form of meditation. This is when I began to discover who I was and started to deal with my fears of being alone and what that meant to me. Clarity came gradually and seemed to be in tune with how much I spent releasing, meditating and allowing.  With clarity came tears and cleansing of things that I needed to let go of and allow them to be as they are.  It’s not easy but it has gotten easier with practice.  Now I am able to recognize the feeling of needing to be alone and I enjoy my time alone reading a book or doing absolutely nothing.

There is nothing wrong with me, nothing wrong with you and what we all seek is pure love from ourselves.  From learning about life lessons in numerology, releasing and meditating, I know now this was part of my life path. What I have learned is that answers come from your heart not your mind.  The ego is strong and your mind can trick you into thinking there is something to fear. 

Are you afraid of ghoulish answers that will be revealed in stillness and silence?  Fear not! As clarity, love, joy and peace will come in time.   With meditation and years of mentorship from my dear friend Kim and from spiritual guidance by Tricia Gunberg, clarity, love, joy, peace, and all the things I have been seeking are now unfolding.   Thank you to these two wonderful mentors I feel so blessed.

Happy Halloween! Do not let your mind trick you, instead treat yourself to some alone time.
