Happy Wednesday ya’ll!
Today’s blog post is all about retrogrades. Yes there’s more than one retrograde. I didn't like it when I first learned this fact. That being said, I’m not going to get too in-depth on the subject but know that it’s a lot. Therefore they play a major role in the manifestation process. [Here’s more information about that here: https://www.elitedaily.com/p/5-planets-are-in-retrograde-right-now-so-theres-something-to-blame-the-chaos-on-9544555 ]
The main one that I’d like you guys to know about is Uranus retrograde which is until January 6, 2020. This retrograde will discuss changes in our career and testing our will.
Retrogrades are also known as our favorite time of the year (*said with so much sarcasm. so. much.*).
Most importantly, being present during them and understanding their presence in our lives. The essence of retrogrades is to help us learn and test our choices in life. This means that some aspects of your life will leave while others will enter. The details of retrograde differs based on the individual but the general liking of it remains the same: experiences happen to shake us up. Literally and figuratively.
We may not understand why these events happen until later. I will discuss my own experiences later but most of them happen during the spring and summer. An aspect of my life that I still don’t understand.
Regardless of the situation, I get it. It’s not easy. The universe is talking to you while your spirit guides are telling you other things. It’s like having parents after you’ve grown up. When you feel like no one is going to talk to you.
Hence why this blog post is here. I don’t see many spiritual people [or at least the ones that I follow] discuss this specific topic so I’m glad that I’m doing. I’d like to give y'all some advice on being present during these retrogrades. A skill that I’ve developed over the past year.
And yes, it’s a skill if you believe it’s a skill.
Yes. Breathe. Take time to hear yourself breathing. When I first heard this, it felt right. But another part of me was like “duh. Don’t you know that?” I had been living in my head for so long that I forgot what it was like to just hear without all the noise. And when I did, I heard my intuition speak to me. In a way that I hadn’t felt for a long time. Not in words exactly but feeling what it was telling me to do.
Remember that our intuition doesn’t have words. It’s only a feeling. And feelings are louder than thoughts. Take my word for it. Otherwise, you will not be present. You’ll get stuck in your head. And I wouldn’t want that to happen to you.
You’ve probably heard more than a thousand spiritual people say this but breathing through your nostrils is a big way that I remain present. To do this, you block your right nostril and breathe in through the left. Then you release the air through the right nostril. This balances your left and right brain with oxygen.
Think Of Things You Are Grateful For
This sounds stupid but it works. Therefore you should do it. Also people undermine this thinking pattern's power. The reason I say this is because it works every time without fail. My biggest advice in developing gratitude is to write them down before you go to bed. That way you're thinking of them when you wake up. You can also think of them if you have a great memory. It doesn’t matter. Do whatever works for you.
Breathe Into The Frequency You Are Manifesting
It took me a while to understand this. The reason being is because it requires brushing up on law of attraction basics. A lot of it is because I wasn’t living in alignment with my own desires for a long time. I was following what other people were doing. [Also known as the classic mistake that the majority are realizing.] That is, until one day I woke up and said “what am I doing?” [keep in mind that this was way before I learned about the law of attraction and was getting out of disordered eating]. Therefore when I started living in the frequency of my dream life it was weird. It got stranger when I started manifesting random stuff into my life [yes, I'm that person who does that. Don’t ask me why I do that. I just do.]
Regardless, what really helped me breathe into the frequency of my creative life and believe that I could do this as a profession was affirmations and listening to frequency music. [The one I listen to most often can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1SBMhp0Ln4 ] It was one of the biggest reasons my dance technique and artistic career has gotten better over the past year. I’m not joking.
Go With The Flow [if you don’t, you’ll be screwed - beyond screwed]
Yup yours truly said it. Now she sounds like every other spiritual guru out there. Yogi Bahjan would be proud. Go with it. If you don’t, you’ll be screwed. Beyond screwed.
More importantly, you will not be working on your issues in a healthy manner. You will also be blocking yourself from source energy, which is not okay.
[You will also leave me gasping.]
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen creatives block their own desires because they won’t go with the flow.
It’s stupid and makes me sick. Okay not really but still. It makes me feel less than great.
Okay that’s my advice with retrogrades. Know that retrogrades are supposed to teach us about our individual growth. We as spiritual beings become what we are manifesting. So be careful what you put out into the universe because it may mean letting go major aspects in your life. [basically a full moon on steroids with a side of mean girls. Yeah it can get ugly if we’re not careful].
Happy Wednesday everyone!
I had something going on last week but it left me reflective and hopeful about this coming new week. One of the topics it brought up for me was the importance of self-love when manifesting. It sounds trite but it’s an aspect of the law of attraction that all of us could benefit from.
Before I even start with this conversation I want you all to know my perspective on self-love. It isn’t egotistical. It’s actually full of honesty and joy. The reason I say this is because when you love yourself. You know who you are. You the person and life you are creating. You know what you want. And you even more so, you enjoy what you are doing in the world. This concept took me a while to grasp because I had such a lack of self-love. I still have my days but it’s grown. Now it’s better and I feel better and more honest with who I am.
And no I’m not just talking about all of the girly stuff. I’m talking about the vibrational mantras and affirmations that amp up our self-worth. That and love is important. Knowing our self-worth is even more important.
Take it from a creative who gets judged all the time. It’s weird and I don’t understand it at times.
There are a few important aspects when manifesting. One of them is self-love. In fact it’s at the core of the law of attraction. You never know what you’re going to get and it could come from anywhere. Therefore I felt it was important to discuss its importance when manifesting.
There are many reasons self-love is important. People use it as a tool to live the life they truly desire. Although in my opinion, the only reason self-love is important is because it reflects in your daily life. I know I say this a lot but remember that the universe feeds off of vibrations, not words. Hence all good thoughts will reflect in your day to day life. Even more so what you are thinking. [I can’t tell you how many times this has happened to me. It’s stupid.j Think of the thought as releasiing a frequency. If you keep thinking to yourself “I’m ugly,” then you will remain ugly. This is because you will be putting out the vibration that you are ugly. If I had done that in college when trying to make friends, I would still be in a rut. I wouldn’t have anyone to talk to and it would be sad.
And we don’t want that happening to ya’ll now. Do we?
Some things I do to cultivate this self-love varies depending on what I’m doing. Regardless, they all mimic the same things. Some of these activities include going on walks, reading self-help books, breathwork, dance, taking naps [yes this is true. Ya’ll better not laugh at me], and doing grounding work.
I listed a lot but these are the main ones that I recommend to you all.

I listed a lot but these are the main ones that I recommend to you all.
Reading Self-Help Books
Yes I read self-help books. They are my actual addiction. I pretty much do everything in them and listen to what they tell me. Now I’m not a crazy person when it comes to sticking to the practices but I keep them as a tool box for others to use. Some great ones I recommend are Wayne Dyers’ Manifest Miracles, Abraham and Ester-Hicks The Law of Atrraction: The Basics of the Teaching of Abraham, and every Brene Brown book.
Okay maybe not every Brene Brown book but some of them. The main ones being Rising Strong and Daring Greatly.
Yes it’s trite but it’s worth it. No really it’s worth it.
Walks allow me to think. I can let my mind run on autopilot. It’s like meditation when we are awake in this reality. This reason I am attracted to this and why I started doing this is because (1) I can be the reflective Taurus I am and go after what I want. (2) I can also allow for changes to occur inside of me. It’s how I know if I am truly living my authentic truth. Don’t go too far because it’s going to take the same amount of time to walk back. Unless you’re a long distance walker.
Breathwork is using your breath to calm yourself down. As someone who gets nervous, I can tell you that this works. There are many YouTube videos but these are the few that I am recommending.
(and please don’t laugh at me on this last one)
This one may make you look like a five year old but I promise it will be worth it.
Grounding work is one of my biggest recommendations because it connects you with what is really important. The earth, plants, and animals. People can easily lose sight of what we already have and look longingly to the future for things. However, it’s important to remain grateful because doing so allows for abundance to flow in. Grounding work can be walking barefoot on the ground (aka “earthing”) to simply following your breath. Feel the air and all of the earth’s textures mess with your feet.
In my own experience doing these exercises has brought me a decrease in inflammation, chronic pain, blood pressure, and stress. I used to be someone who had crimpling anxiety. It was to the point where I didn’t know if I would make it. That’s a scary thought for someone who is twenty two.

Alright that's my 50 cents for this week. My purpose in telling you these things is to remind ya'll how important self-love is. This involves it's maintenance and increasing of it throughout our spiritual journey. In a world where people's photo seem to mean more than our own well-being, I want you to know that you are worthy for your manifestations. You are worthy to physicalize a million dollars or pursue and artistic career or adopt your own dog or start a llama sanctuary. [yes I wrote a llama sanctuary. don't judge me]. You are worthy to attain all that you are attracting into your life. It may not feel like it some days but know that the universe is conspiring for you. There are days where I forget why I do what I do. Heck I forget why I have this blog. Why I dance, act, model [yes I model but it was random how I started. More on that later]. Why I am the way I am.
That being said, have great night or day. If I could give each of you a hug, I would.
In today’s blog post, I am going to discuss alignment and how it should feel. It sounds simple but I’m just going to be honest...Sometimes it ain’t easy to feel in alignment. There are times where I am extremely confused and bombarded. That I feel as if nothing feels right, which for sure not being in alignment.That and I get so many people asking me how they are supposed to feel. Therefore the blog post exists. And for those us who do know alignment: to a loving laugh and brush up. Oh yeah I would only laugh out of love.
For starters let’s start with what alignment is. Alignment is when you are following the path to your manifestation. You intuitively know that what you are doing. You accept the emotion being brought forth. At first you are scared but you take the leap of faith, know it’s going to happen, and run with it. [and don’t forget to have fun. I forget that as a performer some days].
This not only means being action oriented but also spiritually oriented. That is you are connecting with your higher source. Your higher source is subjective for everyone but I will give my definition of it. My definition of a higher source is that you are speaking and listening to the guidance of your angels, spirit guides, and self. Also known as the non-stop conference meeting. At least that’s what I call it. [yes, you have a higher self. It’s always been there so quit ignoring it]. Their guidance can be seen in a variety of ways (more on that will come later), but I usually just ask. Like straight up ask.
Keeping in mind that you might not hear them talk back to you. That’s what happens at the beginning, but later on you will know way more than you asked. Take it from a 22 year old who knows way too much now. Yes I hold many secrets. So many that it's stupid.
Now that we have alignment’s definition of the way, I’d like to tell ya’ll about the key emotions. How you should feel. I can already hear old-timers to manifestation being like, oh Geneva why are you giving this away? There are many reasons but the first being that it's a common question. Secondly, there aren’t enough blog posts (or at least the ones I know of) that discuss alignment. Therefore it leaves the public puzzled and confused.
There are many feelings but there are three main ones that should help you out. They’ve gotten me out of manifestation funks many times and I’m happy to share them with you.
And no I’m not talking about the drug type feeling. It’s for sure a sober feeling. I’m talking about how the atmosphere of the place. How the people act and their reception of your vibe. That feeling when you walk into a room and you know something great is about to happen. I get that feeling nine times out of ten. Sometimes more. The best way to know something is euphoric is if you need to remember it for a second because there was a wonderful feeling associated with it.
This sounds stupid but it’s the essence of the law of attraction. These experiences are lessons from our higher selves to remember who we are. Some days are hard but those are the harder lessons. A positive vibe is being around those you care about or the people you are attracting into your life. And there is absolutely no negativity. Like none. I say this because negativity is subjective and a choice.
There may be some people who view certain situations as negative. This means that they hold an emotional attachment associated with an experience. Therefore they have an entirely different story on that situation
This is the main one I’d like you to focus on, especially for those who are starting/nervous. This feeling is the emotion that you got from writing your manifestation. You may know remember all of the details but the intuitive feeling is the most important. Little do beginners know that this is what people are already have.
In my own experience, I’ve always written, and followed, the word magic.There are a few other ones but that one seems to be the main one. It makes me feel euphoric and light. I’m not sure why but it does. I don’t have a care in the world. This word keeps my mind open to new and uplifting possibilities. It makes me laugh a little as I type this down. That and it makes life funnier. Then again I view everything in a child-like manner so it’s stupid.
You may lose people when being in alignment but that’s okay. I did and I’m still her to tell you of the embarrassing/weird manifestation stories I have. [I should probably come out with an e-book.]. It simply means their vibration isn’t the same frequency. That you are letting go of what is no longer serving you. And that is okay. It doesn’t mean they are a bad person. It just means it’s time for you to ascend higher.
That being said I hope ya’ll have a great day/night! If you want to follow the blog and what else I’m doing, then make sure to look at my links them down below. Remember that you are awesome, loved, and amazing.
Today I wanted to be honest and talk about something real: saying yes to the universe. Most importantly, what works when saying yes to the universe.
When we say yes to the universe and get out of our own way, things start to move forward. Our vibration increases and we attract more of the things that we want. Our motivation gets stronger and the people in our lives begin to see us change in the most magnificent way. This past week I found myself trying to control when things happens. That is when I got certain casting calls, went places, etc..I kept trying to push myself to do things that were out of my control. I felt myself going crazy. Little did I know that this was all in my head. I was actually doing all of the things that I was supposed to be doing.
In other words, I was being too hard on myself.
This is why I want to discuss saying yes to the universe.
Let me start off by saying that sometimes it’s not easy. In fact it’s hard. I’m a taurus I know. [We are one of the most stubborn signs you will ever meet. We are also deep sleep addicts but I deny that. We just love sleep.] You’ve had old fears holding you back telling you that you can’t do both or that you’re not good enough. I felt like that a majority of my life. My confidence was really bad and I felt like I couldn’t do anything. I would constantly compare myself to others. It was in a time when everyone wanted to be just like movie stars and socialites. And I’m talking everyone. That’s not to say that doesn’t happen now but it’s definitely lessened.
[Why do I say this? We can manifest being famous. A manifestation that I don’t recommend unless with good intentions. Now back to the story]
I had a distorted version of myself in my head. I was one of those people that would creep social media. All the time. I swear something was wrong with me. There were days where I didn't feel like I could think. To make matters worse, all I kept thinking about was the judgment of those around me. This can happen in any environment but it was in my performance life.
It wasn’t until I went vegan in 2014 that I discovered myself-love. And it grew in college, which is why I am grateful for that time. It taught me a lot of lessons about myself and the world that I wouldn’t have learned otherwise. About people about the world I see. About the people around me. And for the first time I felt wild and free. The kind that I would only dream up in my head.
A lot of this was because I decided to give myself permission to go for my manifestations and focus on them with everything that I had. There was something in my gut that kept telling me that being a dancer and actress was what I was supposed to do. That doing all these musicals wasn’t a mistake.
And there is one secret that has always remained true. And this isn’t clickbait. It’s real.
And it’s this: listen to your intuition.
I’m serious. It’s never wrong nor will it ever be wrong. It’s source speaking to you and telling you that everything is going to be okay. That your situation is temporary. Abraham-Hicks talks about this like your compass. It guides you through the “how,” which doesn’t exist. Once you speak your manifestation like it’s in the presence, abundance begins to flow. That sounds strange but it’s beyond true. And I’m living proof.
I mean, it’s led me here. It’s led me to become and develop as a performer and start this blog, and become a part-time model. [Yes I am a part-time model. Looks like my days was watching reruns of America’s Next Top Model as a kid will was worth it. Well minus the drama. Anyone can be a model].
If you make your relationship with your Inner Being your top priority, and you deliberately choose thoughts that allow your alignment, you will consistently offer the greatest advantage to others with whom you interact. Only when you are aligned with your Source do you have anything to offer another.
Before ya’ll start telling me that your intuition doesn’t exist, here is a “formula” to hear it. At first it may not speak to you but it’s feeling. [Remember that the law of attraction is all vibrations, not words.]
To hear your intuition, think about your manifestation that is already happening in this present moment and breathe deeply. In that you will feel a light feeling. After that feeling you will have an impulse to do something.
When you have this impulse, do it. Make it your intention. And don’t ever give up. Because the great manifestations, material or not, are always worth it.
If you have limiting beliefs that come up, reverse them with a positive affirmation. Over time, you will begin to attract and believe that statement.
I’m not going to lie, there are days where I’m like: “universe, where are my manifestations?” Those are also the days where I feel like a needy girlfriend. It’s stupid. These are the moments where I remind myself of patience and trusting. That’s another thing that came up this past week. I wasn’t trusting the universe. I was getting stuck is managing my life that I was forgetting the big picture. There are a lot of little things that I am doing to get me to where I am going.
Regardless, my intuition has taught me to open up. To live and be free. That “distractions” and facing your fears can change your life. That most importantly, to be grateful.
I hope you enjoyed this blog post. I wanted to give you a real answer to saying yes to the universe and this is it. It’s not easy at first but once you’ve worked through your limiting beliefs, you will find that anything’s possible.
P.S. I am looking to change up my website a little so be ready. It’s time for it to look like me now. Not college me.
Before you guys laugh at this blog post, hear me out. This is something I learned about six months ago and wanted to share with you guys. As an avid spiritual being, I am always learning about what I can do to connect with my higher self and understand all things spirituality. And on this journey, I have found that empaths are an essential ingredient to society. [And no, they aren’t just water signs. For instance, I am not a water sign. I’m a Taurus.] An empath is someone who feels other people’s thoughts, emotions, and energies. I consider them to be psychic (even though everyone’s psychic) because they are like sponges. They metaphorically become other people good or bad. Many people are empaths and don’t even know that they are. They know when something’s off in the room. They can also sense discord between people and themselves. Some people may call them recluse but they are not. They bring compassion, humanity, and harmony into our human experience.
In my own personal experience, I couldn’t understand why I was so sensitive to people. As a major introvert, it was hard for me to be with people for a long time. Social interaction tired me out and it was a lot. Not that I wasn’t compassionate. It drained me out and made me weird. I was just different. I couldn't understand what it meant to be empathetic let along the difference between empathy and sympathy. I didn’t understand what benefits there could be to being an empathize.
Therefore, I wanted to give you guys some insight into the signs of being an empath.
You are Empathetic Towards Others
This is kind of obvious but it’s probably the best way i know people are empaths. Empaths feel each others pain and absorb other people’s feelings. I’m not saying they’ll cry right after they hear a sad event but they will take a moment to absorb what’s going on. Sometimes they don’t show it but they will say something that relates to it.
Have A Deep Connection for People
Empaths feel connected to others on a soul level. It’s hard to explain but it’s like an invisible cord that gets loose and tightens over time. I didn’t start to feel this aspect until college. In college I developed a love for nature and animals. I began to understand their meaning and presence in my life. It also deepened my reasons for being vegan. I began to care about the environment and people.
But honestly, it might be a problem now. It got weird at times but it’s developed my understanding of this topic. It was necessary on my spiritual journey.
Need to Spend Introvert Time
Yes, most empaths are introverts. I am one of them. I LOVE to be alone. I used to think it was weird but I realized that it’s okay. So don’t worry if you love to be alone and don’t feel like you belong. You will soon attract your tribe. I can’t speak for other empaths but it helps me collect myself, rest, and reflect. After a long day of dance and being with people I must remember where I stand as a person. More importantly sort out my feelings for other people. I also just like to relax a lot. It’s actually kind of stupid.
Disliking A Person’s Presence Without Knowing Explanation
I can contest to this. There are times where I don’t understand why I don't like someone. I’ll literally look at someone and think “I really don’t get why I don’t like you. But i want to like you.”. It’s weird. I realize that it’s because (1) we were not meant to meet and (2) their vibration is much lower than not. Reason two always seems to be the main reason. This is why I so picky about who I let into my life.
If any of you experience this know that those people on their own path and they need to make the decision to raise their own vibration. Let me repeat that: THEY NEED TO MAKE THE DECISION TO RAISE THEIR OWN VIBRATION.
Easily Excited About Ideas, Dreams, and Hopes of Others
What can I say, we like to hear what other people have to say. We especially love it when it’s good because we feed off of it.
It’s like a drug at times for me to think about this. I get very excited for other people. It's a good thing but I’m certain if i let it all out, then it would turn into a scene. I’m not joking. Then again i am daydreaming Taurus who loves to hear other people’s ideas.
Times of Uneasy Sickness
This happens to me when I am around negative people. I start to get sick and I don’t feel like myself. It’s not okay. My advice to cure this is to get away from those toxic people. It not only lowers your vibration but it also breeds for negative situations to happen. That hasn’t happened to me on a catastrophic level but it can be dangerous if it’s been going on for long periods of time..
Now that I’ve defines and told you more about empaths, here are some of the benefits that they bring to society. I promise that it's not just a bunch of people who cry all the time. We'd have a problem if that were the case. In fact, empaths bring more to the table that we realize. They bring so much connection and depth into this world. It's crazy. These can be expressed in various ways. Even performers are empaths. [And I'm not just talking about actors and dancers. Performers of all types.] Here are some of those things listed out.
What empaths do and their purpose:
There’s so much more that I could go into but I just wanted to hit the main points. I hope you have a great day and found this informational. I think this is a topic that can be misunderstood and misread and I’d like to change that.
If anything please remember that it's okay to be an empath. Know that it's NOT weird. It's just what this particular life has brought you, especially in the awakening process. Furthermore, It's okay to feel a deep empathy towards others. Just make sure you are kind to yourself in the process. And give yourself alone time.
I'm not joking. Give yourself alone time. Take it from an actress and dancer who literally makes time for it. [Yes I'm around people too much.]
That being said, have a great day. Stay awesome and love yourselves.
Today’s post is on a topic that I love to talk about with people: crystals. Yes the things that we wear and make us “sparkle.” Yes I’m cheesy. Honestly it’s a problem. Sometimes I think it’s a problem but it’s one of the many things I love.
There are many crystals for awakening. Learning about these has helped me immensely in my spiritual journey. The point of them is to help ground and center you during this time of opening yourself up to the universe’s gifts. It is also a time of discovery and finding who you are. I learned a lot about myself during this time. I know more about various karmic cycles and the symbolic meanings of phases ending. I’ve also deepened my relationship with nature. I’m already a nature freak but this got me in the trenches of it. [and yes, it's just like my relationship with dance and theatre: a mysterious rabbit hole that I fell in love with it. Once I got in, it was hard to come out].
But the way I found out crystals was...interesting. In fact it’s probably very weird to people. I’m not going to tell the whole story but here is some of it.
True story: the way that I found out about awakening crystals was by using my intuition. Over a year ago, I walked into a crystal shop and set the intention that I’m on a mission to heal myself from past traumas and karma that were blocking me from my highest self. I was feeling this past self come over me like a dark shadow and felt that I couldn’t get out. A lot of it was confidence issues and fears about success. I was having fears of showing who I was becoming and it was beginning to affect my everyday life. I decided to let my intuition lead me throughout the store. I looked at all the crystals and bought the ones that felt right for this time period in my life. When I looked up the meanings of all the crystals I brought, they were all grounding crystals. I realized it was because I was finally waking up and realizing the truths of this world. I was coming to a deep understanding of what it meant to live and be. They were also related to my heart, third eye, and sacral chakras, which is where people run into some major issues.
So without further ado here are the crystals that have helped me ground myself. These are also some of the only crystals I currently own so there’s that.
Obsidian has been used for many things however it’s grounding abilities are strong. People use it to ward against negative energy and to prevent people from doing negative behaviors. That being said, be careful. I once paired this with a rose quartz and accidentally made someone fall in love with me. Keep in mind that I’m someone who’s never been in a relationship.
Guys I can’t make this stuff up. What you think about becomes real. And my intuition always leads me back to the obsidian I got the month prior.
This crystal is related to power and courage. It stimulates the root chakra, which is the base of sexual and creative desires. It is a crystal that stimulates creative inspiration. Carnelian allows us to face our fears with full force and be daring. This crystal is used my many creatives. Or at least that’s what I notice. Yes your girl is one of them. I actually carry it around with me. I know I am in need of carnelian when I feel like I can’t live up to my fullest potential.
This crystal creates a sense of calm. It known for balance and peace. It also the 3rd eye chakra and can be used as a meditative crystal for those who are impatient. Basically: use it when you are waiting for an answer. There are moments where we can feel anxious and get frustrated over temporary issues. Some other uses include spiritual protection and purification, cleansing of negative influences/attachments, and the creation of a spiritual light.
To give you a full picture, I use this crystal everyday. It calms and brings me a sense of peace. I can get impatient with certain aspects of my life, which leads to more negative energies. Putting this crystal on my Third eye chakra helps eliminate all of that.
Citrine is a popular one. It might be the biggest one I hear from people beside quartz. In other words, it’s one of the “cool kids.” People use this gemstone for abundance, energy, prosperity, luck and wealth. The main one I hear about is material wealth and energy. Basically: money honey. But not just money physically but spiritually. Remember that you must feel the prosperity before it physicalizes. Otherwise you won’t get the full manifestation.
This is also called the “perfect jewel” and that it is the supreme of mother earth. It represents the relationship between the physical and spiritual world. It amplifies the power of the next crystal and enhances intuition. It also allows for clarification and new beginnings.
I use this crystal when I don’t feel connected to the people around me or feel like I’m growing out of a phase. It brings attention to the situation I am facing what things that I need to adjust.
It is a crystal that rids of negativity and is great for any mental health distress. I am someone who has bouts of depression and anxiety. [yes I’m not afraid to say it.] Some days are good and other days are...worse than the others. However I do what is necessary and using smokey quartz really helps. I focus and become productive on manifesting my desires and “sticking with my gut.” It also clears the air on some major questions and fears I have.
yes this is a necklace but that is not the point. (If you would like to get one here is the link. The jewelry company is called Junon Jewelry. It’s all ethically and authentically made in La Jolla, CA. If you do get one, make sure to go to the sales section, where they have some great offers).
This one is special for many reasons. It is connected to the heart chakra and represents love. Not just romantic love, but love towards other people. This crystal reminds us that love is universal and is one of the highest frequencies of the universe.
I wear this crystal every day. I am someone who can lose sight of what it means to love other people. I get caught up in doing things and find myself frustrated. When I focus on what is around my neck, I remember why I am doing what I’m doing. I remember that I blog and perform because I love it more than anything else in the world.
Overall these stones have helped me through life. They’ve been with me since college and will stay with me forever. And it’s true, I’ve manifested some crazy shit with these stones. It’s stupid. Watch one day there will be a book on Geneva and her crystal adventures.
For the time being, those stories are being manifested and we shall the how the universe reveals them to me.
I hope ya’ll enjoyed this blog post. But you probably also learned that Geneva manifests with them to live out her life purpose. [and there’s a nice thesis statement to go along with it]. I put some great links to help find out some of the crystals meanings so make sure to look at those!
I hope it helps you guys on your own spiritual journeys towards well being.
Namaste and have a great day.
Happy Wednesday ya’ll!
Today’s post is all about the key to achieving balance. I’m not going to lie, when I thought of this idea I was like “Geneva who are you to talk about balance? You’re 22 and just graduated from college.” I see your point. I really do but I learned a few things about this topic in college. I saw a lot of people in both my personal and college life struggle with this and I don’t want that to happen to ya’ll. Over the years I’ve learned to have a growth mindset and some major focus.
Basically: I know what I am manifesting. Period. I know that it requires time, dedication, and growth. Part of it is this blog but another part of it is creative. I love being creative and it’s always felt right to it.
In other words, I was that kid listening and watching actor interviews, musicals, and dramas like a nut case. I would listen to music and dance like no one’s business [that’s still the case except we’re now adding my audio book addiction and less movie watching. Yes I don’t watch that many movies anymore]. Basically: I was setting myself up to be creative. I’m still not sure why the universe was giving me those messages. Although I have a feeling that it’s going to be revealed to me soon. Very very soon.
Any who I figured I could give ya’ll some advice on the keys to achieving balance. These are some things that I’ve learned along the way and just found helpful.
1. Time-Management and Flexibility
These two could be their own post but I wanted to put these here for our own sakes. These two aspects are also the reason certain manifestations are happening for me right now. When we manage these two skills, we become invisible.
Time-management is a skill that I am learning as I am someone who caught up doing certain tasks. And I’m not just not talking about caught up, I mean way too involved with it. It wasn’t until very recently that I started to use time-management. It’s a little militant but I keep hearing my spirit guides tell me that it will be like this for a while. And to be honest that’s okay. It’s helped me stay on track and not question my actions. I think the reason people have bad time management is because of excuses and insecurities. They feel like they need to justify their aspirations and dreams. I found myself doing this and realized how stupid it was.
The reality is that you don’t need to justify yourself to anyone. Let me repeat that: you don’t need to justify yourself to anyone.
Remember that you are going after them and learning so much. About yourself and the world. In my own manifestation journey, I am finding a new sense of comfort and being in who I am becoming. Therefore I’ve come to see time as a tool. So use it wisely.
At the same time, I think it’s okay to have some flexibility. It’s okay if things don’t go to plan. When we become militant about our time, we lose our flexibility muscle. And we don’t use the universe’s power to our advantage. It actually starts to work against us. This is the other reason why I didn’t time-manage for a long time. It was because I got too militant. It made me stagnant and I felt like I couldn’t move.
2. Being Kind to Yourself
Yes I said it and I’ll say it again. Be kind to yourself. From the way you talk to yourself to the way you treat yourself. Not only spiritually but health wise as well. [And yes even this healthy vegan can become the junkiest of vegans. Then again, we vegans have our junkie phases]. Make sure you get enough sleep and are surrounding yourself with the people and places that you want to be surrounded by.
3. Keep and Build Your Relationships
Work on your relationships with your loved ones or developing a new friendship. It could also be networking related. Remember that it’s only hard if you make it hard, so go about it with optimism and kindness. This doesn’t even have to apply to family. It can be anyone you consider family. Our family relationships can dampen when we start to get into “work mode” too much.
4. Keep a Solid Morning Routine
When I tell you this has helped me believe it. Having a solid morning routine has gotten me through some pretty rough stages. A morning routine that I recommend is waking up, stretching, doing mediation, affirmations, yoga, and eating a healthy plant based breakfast. [Yes I’m vegan but I can be pretty junky at times. Then again this is about balance so…]. Listen to your body with the breakfast. This varies for many people but make sure it’s nutritious. I’m not a medical physician so I’m not going to discuss this too much. The point of all of this is to ensure that our bodies, souls, and spirits are nourished.
That being said, I don’t do everything in the morning routine I stated. Meditation always happens. If it doesn’t, then we have a problem.
5. Create Moments to Collect Yourself
Take moments to remind yourself why you are doing what you are doing. Think of this as a transition. Breathe and know that you are doing your best. And most importantly, know that what is coming is. Congratulate yourself for accomplishing a task or a move that you didn’t think you’d get. These are times that I thank the universe for granting me all of my desires. I’m not religious by any means but I talk to divine source. I also thank my spirit guides and angels. For giving me this beautiful life. Some days are harder than others but I know it’s for my highest good.
That being said, I hope ya’ll enjoyed it. These are some key aspects that have helped me establish a more balanced relationship with myself and my manifestations. More importantly, trusting in divine timing. And with this week being the first week of the July Mercury Retrograde, I felt like it was time to help ya’ll establish ways to cope. [But make sure we grow during this time. That’s the point of retrogrades!]
Have a great day. Namaste.
Developing Your Inner Light
Happy Wednesday everyone!
Today’s blog post is all about developing your inner light. This is an important part of the law of attraction because it’s what manifestation is about. It’s about keeping a positive frequency throughout the experiences the universe gives to us.
That being said, it took me a while to develop my inner light because I had a ton of emotional baggage that I hadn’t filtered out. [I can already hear you guys: "SAME Geneva. SAME." Then again, this is a majority of the population. To give you a picture, it took me a good year and a half to clear it all out. It was tough but I knew I had to do it. I knew that if I kept it, I would keep telling myself the same sad story over and over again.Therefore, I wanted to give you guys some pieces of advice that have really helped me maintain an inner light.
It’s that simple kids. Do the things you like to do. It might even be something you love. And please make it something you love. Otherwise, it won't be fun and manifesting is fun. But the story is different when you are a creative.
As a creative I’ve learned to have a balance of it as I can get tired of doing dance and theatre. Yes it happens. This is when I turn to other things like going to free events, trying new things, and spending time with friends. Basically anything that doesn't have to do with what I do. Doing this informs myself of how I can improve my craft but also how I think about what I do. Also, it’s nice to get out.
But don’t get me wrong, it's hard sometimes. You feel stuck and you don't know what to do. It’s not easy sometimes because emotions are a lot. And even worse, they feel like bricks if you let build over a long period of time. I get pretty emotional during full moons so I understand. That’s when I know I need to make sure emotions are released. Then I learn and move on. Right after is a time to get up and do something that makes you intuitively feel good. And who cares if others find it weird. You’re doing you and that’s all that matters. Those moments are signs from the universe that your manifestations are coming. It’s also the time for creative inspiration.
2. Distance Yourself From Negative People/Situations
I’m being serious when I say this. Sometimes we don’t realize that an aspect of our lives is bad for us. At least until our intuition tells us. That’s when we know it’s time to leave. This is honestly how I know I need to not talk to certain people. They will leave me feeling bad and give my subconscious bad feelings. The reason I say this is because our subconscious remembers more than our conscious. This goes from the images we see to the songs we hear. Therefore what we surround ourselves with, we will become.
So make sure it's in alignment with who you are becoming.
Also if you are in a negative situation, it’s best to do keep doing the things you love. Don’t focus on that other person because it’s their problem. Take it from a life path 3, who are notorious for being “people pleasers.” I spent a majority of my life trying to please people. It’s not worth your time and energy trying to change them, especially if they don’t want to be changed.Take the time to focus on the positive and what the situation is teaching you on your spiritual path.
3. Speak Kind Words to Yourself
This kind of goes with the second one, please speak be nice. Know that you’re not the only one in these emotions and bettering themselves. And honestly, some people don’t like to see others succeed. Even if things don’t go to plan,don’t be hard on yourself. Instead, just move on and let it be.
4. Listen to Your Angels and Spirit Guides
Listen to what your angels and spirit guides are telling you. The most common way I hear my spirit guides and angels is through angel numbers. I’ll let you know when I hear their voices. They let me know when I’m doing too much and need to slow down. Why? I’m someone who gets busy and it can be overwhelming to some.
Basically I’m best friends with my Angels and Spirit Guides. My biggest advice in calling them is to talk to them. You might look strange but thank them every morning and night. Tell them how you feel and pose a question to them. To some this is crazy but I really do talk to my spirit guides even if I do something they don’t like. They act as second parentsl.
4. Lessen SM (Social Media) Use
I’ve mentioned this before but don’t be on SM all the time. It’s not good for our subconscious. That being said, if you are surrounding yourself with positive messages, then that’s okay. The point is you want to surround yourself with what you are manifesting and all the positive aspects of that manifestation.
Something I do on a daily basis is download certain audio books and playlists that motivate me. In other words, I turn my iPhone into an iPod because let’s be honest...I live a monk-ish life. I also not go on my phone unless it’s with an actual purpose. In other words, it’s easy to get lost on the internet when you don’t have an intention behind it. I did that for many years and it took me awhile to rewrite my subconscious and certain traumas.
When you do all of these things, magic happens. You believe in yourself. The things that no longer serve you will drift and you will feel invisible. Not as a means of being “better” than anyone else but knowing that your spiritual path is being opened for you. And that is a beautiful thing.. But the biggest reward is you will love yourself. And when you love yourself, you remember who you are.
On that note, I hope you have a wonderful day. Love yourselves and stay awesome.
This past week was the full moon in Sagittarius and let me tell you I felt a lot. I’ve been really working on myself this past year and a half and this full moon was the first time something amazing happened. It didn’t look that amazing but it was looking back. I had a tower moment. I was crying and feeling everything. My anxiety was going up. It felt like the world was crashing. That sounds dramatic but it’s true. My out-of-body experience led me to the conclusion that I just wanted to feel free and joyful. That I didn’t want to feel stuck and trapped in my current situation. Then I decided to sit down and feel joy. Not in a forceful way but a fluid one. I then felt this emotion rush over me. It was the first time I had felt this emotion in a while. I mean, I had before but this time it was genuine. And bright. And I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I felt the feeling of being alive. And not in an intoxicated way. A genuine one.
And to be honest it was a lot for everyone. A reason why the internet was going crazy over it. It was one where people finally let go of their doubts and limiting beliefs regarding their manifestations. Where people made final life decisions, especially in terms of their careers and love lives. If you were one of these people, know that you are not alone in the decisions you’ve made. People do this for various reasons and it’s okay. I made some definite decisions in terms of my career. That I wasn’t going to give up and that I was going to trust the universe fully and completely. No more gimmicks from your girl.
After that ritual, I brainstormed what I would like to talk about for this week’s blog post. And turned out that emotions was the one that stuck. Therefore, we’re going to talk about it.
Many people forget this when manifesting. Sometimes it’s innate but for most it’s not. Why? We were conditioned to believe that everything is hard which doesn’t have to be true. It’s in fact easy to manifest because you can manifest from anywhere at anytime. When I tell people to keep their spirits up, this is what I mean: cultivate the emotions you want to feel.
Here are the main ones I focus on. There are many more but these are just a few:
This is important because the universe reads vibrations. These vibrations will then reflect into your current life because that is the frequency you are emitting. One could be taking action and not get anywhere without feeling it. When it you feel it and associate it with the action, your entire perspective changes and your manifestations become more real. You are telling the Universe that you are ready to awaken and actually feel good. Furthermore, the only thing you can change about yourself is your actions, feelings, emotions, and thoughts. When doing this, these emotions will become easier to manifest. You also don’t feel “weighed down,” which is never fun.
One way of thinking like this is using affirmations to cultivate these feelings (“manifesting is easy,” “manifesting is fun,” “I can do anything I set my mind to,” etc.). In this way you are planting the seeds and watering them. Another way is to minimize your social media and TV use. For starters I don’t watch TV anymore because I’m doing other things now so that’s out the window. I watch streaming services sometimes but not all the time. It depends on what I’m doing. Social Media, however, is different.I don’t use social media unless I’m doing these things:
It’s best to say affirmations after you wake up and before you go to bed. That way your conscious and subconscious mind can sleep soundly and you can build you vibrations more and more.
Okay, I probably sounded like a crazy person to some of you but this is how I’ve become way more productive in life. I also just want to help ya’ll out too because I know what it’s like to be living a life that you don’t want to live. With that being said, I hope ya’ll have a great day. Make sure to always keep your vibrations up and surround yourself with wonderful. People.
have faith in the universe. and if you already have it, have even more faith.
that’s all i have to say for this blog post.
know that there are many great things happening for you and for others. remember your worth and that you are one with the universe. some days it may feel like you’re dying. i get it, both mentally and physically.
today’s blog post is freewritten: why? that’s the person I am. free and completely honest. no gimmicks. no fancy words. just me because i’m too honest for my own good. then again, maybe it’s what my 22 year old soul needs. a way to “get herself together” and show the importance of faith the best i know how. so here we go.
having faith is more than important.
it creates your reality.
irrevocably without a doubt.
i’ve seen it too many times to know.
it’s a portal to let the angels and magic flow through you like no other. a way to let your intuition heighten and let your reality manifest.
even when it feels “hard” have faith. when you can feel a wall of bricks, have faith. you are more than this body. you are more than this human experience. it’s training you for something greater and better than yourself.
i forget that at times but that’s what it is. not a test or a challenge. just...a stage of growing and being honest with yourself.
i’ve had moments where i don’t feel in my body and it’s not in a spiritual sense. a mental one. that is painful and hurts. bad. in however bad means to you.
these are the moments where i tell myself a solid fact: you are an eternal being who has the ability to experience uncharted territory. never forget your life purpose and what you came here to do.
but honestly...sometimes it’s about feeling. feeling and letting go. letting emotions pass like water because that’s what they are: emotions. they only becoming thoughts when you make those thoughts became who you are.
it’s taken me a while to accept but that’s what it is. even if the world sees you as "bearing your soul without a censor" because that’s real.
and let me tell you, i know what being fake looks like. i grew up in a city and went to college in a desert to find myself (again). trust me on it.
okay that’s my two cents on the topic of having faith. know that it’s about you and your relationship with universe. more importantly remembering why you started doing this in the first place. We are all here on the earth to grow and learn and it’s okay if it feels hard. it’s teaching you about yourself and your wants. a way to let your inner needs shine into the universe.
i also felt that writing in this form would help some of ya'll out because, well, perfectionism just isn't worth it.
