What I Learned About Myself Living In France

Taking a leap of faith garnered unexpected healing and abilities

It’s Time To Let Go of Old Energy
I let go of enough fear to move to France but I still navigated the world with old habits. I met the same kind of people, which resulted in the results. Once I let go I had more time for myself and more of my Truth started to surface. Living my Truth meant everything from before no longer fit into my life, including fear. This left me open for more abundance and prosperity, which does not look like I expected.

My Morning Spiritual Practice Is Important
House and pet sitting taught me that I need to spend the mornings grounding my energy and focusing on taking care of myself first before sharing my energy. I love animals and will have a cat of my own, but, for now, self-love is a priority. No compromises. The right cat will enter my life when I have ‘mastered’ taking care of me. Plus, I can care for stray cats until that time comes.

Being Vegan Is Spiritual
Living a vegan lifestyle Living a vegan lifestyle changed my relationship with food. I went vegetarian in 2008 then vegan in 2015. Both transitions helped me understand myself, my relationship to food and the emotional impact of having cravings.

I hear my Higher Self more on a vegan diet. Spirit nudged me to go raw for detox reasons. Honestly, I resisted but understood afterwards. Living vegan in a country that cherishes cheese and pork helped me focus inward and honor the lifestyle that allows me to have fewer health issues and be led by messages of love.

My Vibe Attracts My Tribe
I hung out at the ‘golden arches’ a lot because it has free WiFi. They operate differently in Paris, playing house music, serving cheesecake, and staying open late. I love house music, but I released cheesecake and everything else that the restaurant serves, and I’m usually in bed early. I met nice people, but they aren’t my tribe. I missed out meeting my tribe because I wanted to be online. In order to experience the capacity of my healing I needed to be in the park around nature and those who enjoy it too.

My tribe hangs out in yoga and meditation studios, art galleries, vegan stores and restaurants, independent film theatres and in parks. Now that I’m temporarily back in the U.S. that’s where people will find me.

Be Specific About What I Want
Thoughts and feelings create our reality. When I’m vague about what I want or have fear, I manifest what I need but it’s not satisfactory. If I want a one-bedroom apartment in a particular area (Saint-Germain-des-Pres, s’il vous plait et merci) then that’s what I need to affirm rather than only asking for a place in France. I get what I ask for and how deserving of it I feel.

I Am Worthy of Abundance and Prosperity
I had an issue with receiving. I noticed it when I was house and pet sitting. People homes to me and stated that I was welcome to anything. I felt guilty about eating the food they left. When I had this discovery I worked with Spirit to work through that stagnated energy. I let go. I affirm every day now: I am worthy of receiving abundance and prosperity.

10 More Things To Know About Me

Sharing is caring.

I love sharing things about myself. This is an addition to the previous list.

  1. In middle school, band was a substitute for P.E., so I joined band to avoid jumping jacks and relay racing.
  2. I’m sensitive to gluten, soy and sugar. They agitate my adrenal glands.
  3. I gave away 90% of my possessions then moved to France in summer 2017. The trip turned out to be a deeper healing for my mind, body and spirit.
  4. Archangel Metatron told me that I had a bleeding heart. I gave away too much energy. It’s time for me to receive.
  5. I’m attracted to men and women and use bisexual and queer as sexual identities. However, I know that my romantic commitment will be with a woman. They worked with me a lot to work through my sexuality.
  6. I can look back at my life and see how behaviors, interests and relationships led me to the point I am now. I am grateful for all the experiences.
  7. I frequently dream of actors, actresses and musicians — living and dead. Some come while I do yoga. These have been visits before and after crossing over, healings they wanted, or messages to me.

My Spirit Guides Led Me to Songwriting

Music is central to my well being.

My angels and spirit guides have been nudging me towards songwriting for three years. I tried three different times, got discouraged then quit.

Music has always been part of my life, since childhood. I listened to music all the time, thanks to my parents. Country, jazz, blues, soul, funk and rock were staples. I sang, danced and enjoyed life. It’s what I did as an adult rather than watch television. I could always be found at a concert, music festival or listening to music online.

Singing, dancing and listening to music has been a spiritual practice to ground my energy and raise my vibration so I can connect with Spirit.

I never thought of music as a vocation. It was my fun and leisure time.

Flash forward to 2015. I was in the midst of developing my psychic abilities and decided to learn automatic writing from Slade Roberson. During his attunement, one of my ancestor spirit guides handed me a symbol. It was tribal yet it was sky blue. On two different occasions my ancestor guide returned handing me two more symbols. I recognized them both as music notes. Upon reflection the first symbol was a quarter note. I resorted to using all of them in my drawings.

In the last two weeks, my angels and guides have been nudging me harder to write songs. I needed to allow my poetry to evolve. I stopped fighting Spirit and listened.

Songwriting is fun.

I have been experimenting with the AABA and ABABCBB song forms gives me some structure, while I just throw all forms out. Everyday I write a song a day, sometimes two. None would be published, but the process feels light and free.

My angels and spirit guides were happy with my shift, but nudged me again to think bigger. I became a member of BMI, a performing rights organization for musicians. It is home to Maroon 5, Linkin Park, Dolly Parton, Sam Cooke, Rihanna, and Michael Jackson’s catalog. I always kept interesting company.

Taking vocal and piano lessons have been on my to-do list, but my efforts resulted in some kind of scheduling conflict. The universe is clearing the path for me now.

I don’t know what the future holds. All I know is that it is paved with music. It’s my happy place.

The Spiritual Truth About Cats and Dogs

My fascination with cats and dogs are messages from my Higher Self about who I am and what I need to work on.

I have been pet sitting for cat and dog owners in Paris, France for over a month. Caring for animals isn’t anything new. I’ve been doing it for almost my entire life, either as my own pets or for others.

One of my most intense pet sitting assignment was in Ithaca, New York, during the brutal winter of 2015. The family lived off-grid, surviving on well water, wood-burning stoves, and wind-generated electricity. I took care of their three dogs, two chinchillas, and eight chickens. The dogs were cute, playful, and protective of the land they lived on.

Dogs are my totem animal – the core of who I am. Dogs are pack animals, which means they are community oriented. They protect their pack.

 Community is important to me.

Dogs come to me in my dreams often. I sometimes see the exact breed of dog being walked after dreaming about it the night before. The funniest dream was when a group of Rottweilers, standing on their hind legs, cheered and clapped as I walked a tightrope above them.

In my waking life, dogs get excited when I walk by. After my first reiki attunement, dogs seemed to notice me more. One dog stopped using the bathroom and ran up to me for attention. Its owner was baffled. I laughed to myself because I knew it was my vibration the dog was after.

Cats are my spirit animal, providing guidance. Cats rest a lot. My angels and spirit guides tell me almost every day to rest. I’m getting the hang of it.

Cats are intuitive and are sensitive to energy, which means they are keenly aware of people and their surroundings. They are independent and choose when they want to act.

Abundance flows easily into my life when I am more cat-like. Living in Paris has been stress-free. I have everything I need.

I thought my yearning for cats and dogs was about me wanting a pet. It wasn’t. My Higher Self, angels and spirit guides were giving me messages about how to balance my life. I need to spend more time resting, playing, and trusting my intuition. This makes sense given that I am an empath. It’s vital in how we keep ourselves healthy.

Life is hard when I don’t listen to Spirit. I used to work traditional 9-5 jobs with a lot of overtime. I accumulated stress in my neck, back and shoulders. Anger and impatience were my normal behaviors in those days. My social life was chaotic. None of that is characteristic of cats and dogs.

The stress and body pain disappeared when I made a commitment to work for myself.

Moving to Paris was about starting anew, building community based on who and what nurtures my lifestyle of resting, playing, and trusting my intuition. France is also home from previous life times. I was happy then. I’m happy now.

The Universe takes care of me as I take care of myself. There is work to be done, but it’s what I love to do.

I’m learning that I can have it all, but it’s only accessible when I work with Spirit.
