Hi! Thank you for stopping by! Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Amanda Rae. I am an independent contractor (fancy way of saying booth renter, ha!) currently working part time as a Hair designer specialist and nail tech in a salon. Working with people from behind the chair is just one of my passions. I am a wife, and a mother of 2 amazing boys. I am also an Intuitive, Medium, Channel, Spiritual Heart Healer and Reiki practitioner.
Since this is my first post, I figured we should start with WHY I decided to start my own blog in the first place! Let me just say, for the record, I am not a professional writer. I am horrible at spelling. And (see? We are not supposed to start a sentence with and.. but I just did!)
Let me just start off with, it took me by complete surprise when Spirit suggested I do this. I often have so many thoughts at once, its like a traffic jam of words, all trying to come out of my mouth at once! How in the world would I ever be able to stay focused on one topic, keep my reader involved and spell it all right?! And then to publish it on the interwebs for all to see?!? Are you KIDDING ME!!?? Right.. ok! LOL However, I have learned to trust my intuition, that still small voice. That God voice. Whats the worst that could happen? I sat down with a piece of paper and a pen, quieted my mind for just a few seconds. I simply said out loud “I am ready.” Let me tell you my hand could not keep up with the words that the Divine was telling me! I wasn’t even thinking these thoughts. They were just simply flowing in through my mind and out of my hand. After I finished, I shut my journal and got back to doing what I was doing, laundry. Ha. A week or two later, I was talking to a friend on the phone and told her what happened. I went back and read what I wrote. It was a beautiful message. It was a message filled with Love and hope. It felt like it came right out of heaven. I have heard of channeling. I have seen some of my amazing teachers do it! but me?? Little ol me? Why me? I am a work in progress! I am not ready! Surely it was a one time thing.. however, I looked farther back in my journal and quickly saw that there were more entries that had the same energy to it. HOLD ON!! What the what is going on here?? Am I seriously channeling? Let me briefly explain channeling for those of you who may not be framiliar. Channeling is simply opening yourself up, creating space within to allow the Divine to use you to receive messages of healing, inspiration, guidance, peace, reassurance, you name it. It can be for yourself or for others. I have found that the messages I have channeled in my journal were for me at the time. However, I have been able to share them when the opportunity presented itself.
When big shifts happen, its because you are ready. Even if you don’t feel like it. Even if you don’t think you are good enough, strong enough, smart enough. It happens not on your own understanding. Its because God knows you. He knows you need to move. You are needed in other areas in order to serve on a deeper level. Who are we to question the one who created us? After all, he is the one who gave us these gifts. He did so intending for us to work with Spirit, to use them to help bless and bring joy to those around us, those who needed healing, and to find peace. I decided to say YES! I said yes to co-creating with the Divine and with Spirit to bring messages that heal, give hope and inspiration to those who are open to receive! And so it is!
Now that you know the WHY I made this blog, Let me briefly tell you what I plan on sharing here! I have a bazillion ideas, (is bazillion a word? It is today! lol) I am intending this blog to be about all the aspects of a spiritually based life. I am brainstorming topics about meditation, intuition, and being psychic. (although I am personally not a fan of that word, eventhough I am one- maybe I will get into that too) Spiritual gifts, how to develop them, use them, and improve them. Also, the difference between being psychic and intuitive, mediumship, energy healing, channeling, and some fun and oh so important-self care! And ways to make sure you are getting the most of your self care practices! And of course, because I co-create with Spirit, I am sure there is more that I don’t know about just yet! And thats the exciting part!! The possibilities are endless!!
The Divine wants to work with all of us. All we have to do is be willing to sit with an open mind and open heart. The best way to do this is through meditation. Coming up soon, I will share some of my personal experiences with you, the how to’s, the health benifits, what to expect (or not to expect) some tips, tricks, and why meditation is the golden key and so important!
