Allow yourself to move into your heart space.

Your heart has much to share with you.

As you move into your heart space, you find yourself in your favorite place.

This space holds many joyful memories for you.

It could be your favorite vacation spot, your favorite place as a child, or it could be a special place that you have created within your meditations.

Take a moment and open your crown chakra.

You may feel, see, or just know that your crown chakra has expanded.

Archangel Chamuel has come to join you in this special place.

She shares with you that love is a universal language.

Love should be given unconditionally without limitations.

As you look at her hands, you can see pink ray energy flowing from her hands and all around her.

She steps close to you and asks permission to send this loving energy into your Crown Chakra. (Pause)

She instructs you to surrender and allow the love to flow freely through your body.

Visualize this pink ray energy moving down into your heart space.

Breathe in the energy into every cell of your body.
Allow this energy to heal the deep wounds within you.

Release the heaviness that surrounds your heart space. (Pause)

It is time for you to heal and to free yourself from the pain and sorrow you hold.

You may feel it moving as it unblocks all stuck and stagnant energy that you hold in your body.

Keep breathing and feel the love of the Divine filling your entire body. (Pause)

You may see the pink ray, you may feel the love, you may just know that you are being surrounded by unconditional love.

Chamuel takes your hands and moves you into an English Garden filled with roses.

The garden has a variety of roses.

There are red, pink, and white roses all around you.

The garden has a beautiful sitting area and Chamuel guides you to sit with her in the garden.

She shares with you the importance of loving yourself.

She asks you to listen to your soul.

What does your soul and heart want you to know about loving yourself? (Pause)

What does your emotional body crave? (Pause)

What does your mental body need? (Pause)

What does your physical body want you to know? (Pause)

You have a limited amount of Life Force Energy.

You reduce your Life Force Energy with high levels of stress.

It is time to listen to your inner guidance system.

Chamuel wraps her wings around you.

She tells you that you are important too!!

What commitments are you willing to make for your own well-being?

What can you do to love yourself more on a daily or weekly basis?

You are worth it.

You are divine.

You are loved.

You are sacred.

Take a moment to hold a space of gratitude for this experience and this connection with Chamuel. (Pause)

Take some last deep breaths and begin to disconnect.


Now, let’s return to this space and time.

With intention, bring your awareness back into the present.

Start moving your fingers and toes.

Slowly come back into this space and time.

Welcome back.

Clarity, Focus, & Purpose https://sacred-magic.fireside.fm/articles/clarity-focus-purpose Sun, 22 Jan 2023 10:00:00 -0700 vialet@discoveryourspiritualgifts.com 27bfea15-3726-4858-a026-05e077a9ac8a Do you have clarity, purpose, and focus for the year ahead?

Do you have clarity, purpose, and focus for the year ahead?

When you begin a new year, you are given the opportunity to clear the slate and bring in a fresh new perspective.

CLARITY

Take time this month to think about what matters to you. What brings you the most joy and happiness? When you live your life consciously with intention, you bring in more joy and happiness.

Imagine a life filled with peace and harmony. This requires you to make significant changes if you are currently living a life that is busy, distracting, and/or overwhelming.

Bring in CLARITY with these steps:

  • Create space: Remove clutter from your life. Clear out your physical space and get rid of the mess. When you have clutter, you will find that your life is filled with chaos.
  • Get clear: Get clear on what matters to you. Take time to reflect and get clear on what you are ready to commit to in your life.
  • Focus on one thing: Scientific studies have shown that we are not as productive when we are multi-tasking. Focus and complete one project before working on the next one.
  • Control distractions: Your phone and computer present many distractions. Create a process for responding to all the beeps on your devices. Block out time to answer messages and emails. And turn off notifications.
  • Self-Care: Make time for physical exercise and eat healthy foods. Honor your physical needs, including getting plenty of rest. It is important that you set priorities and put yourself first on the list.
  • Stillness: Make time in the morning or evening for stillness. This can be for meditation, mindful practices, journaling, etc. Be present and mindful of your day and decisions.

PURPOSE

What are the most important things in your life? Purpose is the driving force that gets you moving and stimulates your passion. Your job or career may not be your purpose. It may fulfill your needs for security, but it is not always your purpose.

When you discover your purpose, it will influence your decisions, affect your behaviors, and be the guidepost for your life.

Sit with these PURPOSE questions:

  • Dreams from childhood: What did you dream about being or doing as a child? How do these dreams feel today?
  • Happiest moments and/or time: When were you the happiest? What were you doing?
  • Accomplishments: What are you proudest of in your life? When have you work the hardest to achieve something?
  • Passions: What would you do for FREE if you could? What are you passionate about in your life?
  • Magic genie: If you could do or be anything in your life, what would it be? What do you need to do to create that for your life?

FOCUS

What are the distractions in your life? Where have you over-committed? Find your focus to reduce the distractions in your life. This will bring in more peace.

Consider these FOCUS questions:

  • Volunteer/Service Work: What brings you the most joy when it comes to being of service and giving back? What doesn’t feed your soul? Release all commitments that do not inspire or serve your highest good.
  • Time with Friends/Family: Which relationships are supportive, inspiring, and/or motivating? Which ones drain or frustrate you? Release unhealthy relationships and nurture healthy ones. Set healthy boundaries in your life.
  • Commit to ME time: What are you doing for self-care? Commit to activities that feed your emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual bodies. This could include alone time, recharging practices, self-care rituals, etc. Everyone is different, so it needs to be aligned with you and your needs.
  • Set priorities: What are your priorities? Make sure your priorities are aligned with your purpose.

Get clear. Find your purpose. Become focused.

Shift Stuck Emotional Energy https://sacred-magic.fireside.fm/articles/shift-stuck-emotional-energy Sun, 15 Jan 2023 10:00:00 -0700 vialet@discoveryourspiritualgifts.com b344e2f2-db09-4937-9d74-56f070675c5e Your emotions and past experiences can get energetically stuck in your physical body. Often, we swallow our words and emotions instead of releasing these energies in a healthy manner. That energy gets stuck in the throat chakra. When that happens, we are unable to speak our truth and to step into our authentic power. You can view the video at: https://youtu.be/jdLRpnaEfhE.

This experience causes us to get stuck energetically and physically because of our experiences and emotions. Once we move the stuck energy, we are able to make healthy changes and move forward.

EMOTIONAL STUCK ENERGY

Do you ever feel like you are attracting the same types of relationships into your life?

You can sometimes become stuck in the same old cycles. After you discover that the relationships in your life are not working and you release them, you may continue to attract the same sort of relationships. Many people will jump back into the pond and begin attracting new relationships into their life immediately. They do not take time to clear, heal, and reset their energies. Everyone is an energetic being that attracts similar energies into their life, like a magnet. If you have not taken the time to tune into a different channel of energy, you will continue to attract similar energies into your life.

Remember that each experience presents you with choices and challenges to assist you in better understanding yourself and others. Make sure that you are stepping back and spending time in reflection before starting any new relationships.

Relationships also include connections, friendships, and/or partnerships.

What relationships in your life fill your energy tank with joy, inspiration, and love? Which one’s recharge and motivate you?

YOUR EMOTIONAL ENERGY

How do you treat yourself and others?

The first step in releasing stuck energy is to evaluate how you treat yourself and others.

Take a moment to ask yourself these questions:

Do you respect yourself?
Do you require respect from others?
Do you respect others?
Do you feel worthy of being loved?
Do you love yourself?
Do you love who you are?
Do you hold sacred space for yourself?
Are you able to look in the mirror and see yourself?
What do you love the most about yourself?
Relationships need to be authentic. It is important to understand that there are individuals that will energetically align with who you are. You should NOT ever change who you are to fit the role and/or relationship.

RULE #1: Do NOT change who you are AND do NOT try to change someone else.

Make sure that step into your authentic self and that you can speak your truth within the relationship.

CLEAR YOUR ENERGIES

Take time to clear your energies. This may require that you heal and release stuck energy that has been buried into your subconscious and physical body.

Take a moment to ask yourself these questions about your current relationships:

Which relationships give back to you?
Which ones make you laugh and smile?
Which relationships inspire you to be better?
Which ones bring you joy?
Which relationships drain your energy?
Which ones allow you to be yourself?
Which relationships bring you the most happiness?
Which relationships support you in the most difficult times?
Who do you call when you need to talk?
This is an opportunity to evaluate what is working for you. The truth is that not all relationships in our lives are healthy and positive. You will never be the right person for everyone. And you will not be liked or loved by everyone that you meet, work with, and/or connect with. Everyone is different.

Align your relationships with the right energetic match.

Allow everyone to be themselves. Make sure that you respect and honor the differences that we all bring to the table.

RULE #2: Everyone is NOT going to like and/or love you.

FOCUS YOUR INTENTION

What types of relationships do you want in your life?

Spend time getting clear on the relationships that align with your highest and best good. Set the intention for what relationships you want to attract into your life. Be specific and clear.

Make sure you are focused on all the great aspects within your past and present relationships. What did you love about those relationships?

RULE #3: You are attracting the relationships in your life.

You deserve to be loved and adored. Do not accept anything less in your life.

MEDITATION: Clearing Your Baggage https://sacred-magic.fireside.fm/articles/meditation-clearing-baggage Sun, 08 Jan 2023 10:00:00 -0700 vialet@discoveryourspiritualgifts.com 6e4c51a3-b4c8-4580-a701-2c2ef1a3d209 This meditation will assist you in clearing out old baggage, so you can step into a new year feeling lighter and more focused. Find a comfortable place without any distractions.

Light a candle.

Take some deep, cleansing breaths.

Focus on each breath in and out, allowing them to center and ground you.


You can listen the meditation video at: https://youtu.be/-5m1U-mS8GA.

You are moving into a new year, a new beginning.

It is time to find peace and to let go of any excess or unwelcome baggage you may be carrying.

You are invited to take a journey on the Train of Healing.

Are you ready?

You find yourself at a train depot.

There is no one here.

A gentle peace washes over you and you feel safe.

A train pulls up in front of you and slows down.

The door to the passenger car opens and you are invited to step onboard.

The attendant welcomes you.

He guides you to your seat in the car.

There are no other passengers in this car.

The passenger car is decorated with vintage, red coverings and old furniture.

The room is rich with antiques, and you feel like you have stepped back in time.

As you look around, the space smells fresh and new.

You step towards your seat, and you settle into place.

The train starts to move again.

You notice that the rhythm of the train aligns with your breathing. (Pause)

Take a moment to lean into the rhythm.

Allow the rhythms of the train to align with your energies and breath.

Feel your shoulders relaxing.

The attendant comes into the car and brings you a cup of herbal tea and some honey.

He tells you that he will be your attendant on this special journey.

His smile is gentle, and you feel connected to him.

As you bring the tea to your mouth, you smell the rich floral and berry aromas.

It smells amazing. Take a moment to breathe it all in. (Pause)

You feel more and more comfortable as you begin to sip the tea.

As you look out the windows of the train, you notice that there are images flashing in the glass.

The images become clearer and clearer.

These are flashes of past experiences in your life.

They hold amazing memories of joy, play, and laughter.

As they appear, you find yourself smiling because of the memories.

Some of them are old memories that you had forgotten. (Pause)

These are reminders of what has brought you the most joy in your life.

Breathe in the joy you have felt in these moments.

Allow yourself the opportunity to sit in these energies. (Pause)

You notice that the images have stopped.

You are now passing through the mountains on the train and the views are incredible.

You are drawn into the scenery and landscape.

Your mind is drifting back to some of those memories that were forgotten.

Each of them has a special place in your heart.

You are brought back to the present moment when the attendant steps back into the car.

He passes through the car to check on you.

He asks you about the tea. You share your experience with him. (Pause)

You thank him for checking on you.

You sink deeper into the seat as you become more relaxed.

The aroma of the herbal tea is still present in the cabin.

It is very calming.

As you begin to look out the windows, you notice that the images begin to appear again.

This time, the images are of experiences in the past when you were disappointed, hurt, and/or angry.

You process the decisions and actions you took in those experiences.

Some experiences are from your childhood when you were too young to know what to do.

Some experiences are places in time when you needed the experience for your own maturity and growth.

They were lessons that made you who you are today.

The attendant steps up to the table.

He tells you that it is time to release and let go of these decisions and actions.

He states that you have integrated all the lessons needed from these experiences.

It is time to release the baggage that you are carrying.

These experiences allowed you to become who you are today.

You cannot go back in time to change them.

And you would not want to change these experiences.

They were created so you would evolve to the person you are today. (Pause)

Archangel Gabriel appears in the passenger car.

She is beautiful. She has blonde hair and green eyes.

She wears golden armor around her chest and her wings are massive.

You can see the orange aura all around her.

She asks you, “Are you ready to heal and release the bags you are carrying that no longer serve you?” (Pause)

The attendant arrives with a cart full of travel bags.

These bags represent all the experiences you are holding on to with regret, fear, and sadness.

Gabriel tells you that you are ready to integrate these experiences and to heal.

It is time to move forward into new energies.

She takes your bags and begins to fade from the passenger car.

Notice how much lighter you feel. (Pause)

The train is slowing down.

The attendant says that it is time to go.

Take a moment to thank him. (Pause)

As you move to the door, stop and take one more deep, cleansing breath.

This year is going to be the best one ever.

Set your intention and claim your blessings. (Pause)

When you step off the train, the attendant thanks you for coming!

Now, let’s return to this space and time.

With intention, bring your awareness back into the present.

Start moving your fingers and toes.

Slowly come back into this space and time.

Welcome back.

Discover your Spiritual Gifts in 2023 https://sacred-magic.fireside.fm/articles/discover-your-spiritual-gifts-2023 Fri, 09 Dec 2022 11:00:00 -0700 vialet@discoveryourspiritualgifts.com f9e6e7bb-8172-4407-b17c-4234114da969 Can you believe we are almost in 2023? Wow, we have completed another trip around the sun. As I reflect on the last couple of years, I have decided that 2020 was emotionally exhausting, 2021 was mentally exhausting, and 2022 was physically exhausting. 2020

Discover Your Spiritual Gifts (DYSG) was flooded with water in December. It was emotionally devasting to see the center destroyed in a manner of hours. I worked hard to build and create our community. It disappeared over night. Many members of the community did not return or stopped being active. Did they move? Did their life shift in another direction? I am still not totally sure what happened, but we started over in July 2020. It was an emotional roller coaster.

2021

I was trying to recreate and expand our center. It seems like we started over from the ground up. The center faced many challenges in 2021 with COVID restrictions and lack of engagement in the classes and store. DYSG got more space, but it was not being fully utilized to it’s potential. We consciously took a step back from the expos and fairs to focus on the community that was building in the center. It was a year of hope and possibilities. It was mentally challenging, and we kept pushing forward through the challenge gates.

2022

This year has been really physical. My desire to expand our offerings created more work and less time for me. I had stated that I was going to create balance for my life, but I kept adding more programs, more books to be written, more classes online, and more work all around.

I finished the year with writing more than 15+ books, editing and expanding 6+ books, offering additional classes including Crystal Alchemy, Psychic Tea Party, Broom Making Playshop, etc. We re-branded one of our podcasts, Sacred Magic, and added a TikTok channel.

LESSONS LEARNED

As a business owner, it is important that you reflect, re-evaluate and re-engineer your processes and focus each year. There have many lessons learned this year.

I have discovered:

  • I cannot continue to teach five days a week consistently.
  • I should not expect to write 20+ books a year.
  • I need to have more help at the center.
  • I must have a future transition plan for my Sacred Temple Mystery School and center for retirement.
  • I cannot physically keep working as hard as I did in 2022.
  • 2023

I have made some decisions and have a plan for 2023. It is important for a business owner to have priorities, focus, and direction each year. I've decided to share more going forward in my articles, videos, and shows.

The center will be focused on nurturing our relationships.

  • Returning to Body, Mind, & Spirit expo in March 2021
  • Continuing to offer FREE resources to our community

We will be eliminating:

  • Develop Your Spiritual Gifts classes due to lack of interest
  • Discover Your Spiritual Gifts podcast on BlogTalk radio to steamline and focus more on Sacred Magic
  • Weekly Sacred Tools Education Videos on YouTube

We will be enhancing:

  • The Sacred Magic podcast will be a weekly show with a variety of structure including shows with guest spots, topic-driven conversation, and educational perspectives from Vialet.
  • Weekly articles from Vialet in the newsletter will also be converted in Vblogs for YouTube for individuals that prefer videos over articles.
  • Discover Your Spiritual Gifts Academy will continue to offer more and more online classes from Vialet and additional teachers.
  • Our Sacred Temple Mystery School will eventually offer hybrid programs with online education plus a scheduled weekend emersion program for each path. The school will also start working towards an apprenticeship program for teachers to be more involved in the Mystery School.
  • A few of the moon ceremonies were changed and/or enhanced to create new experiences for our regular attendees.

We will be continuing:

  • Recruiting team members that align with the mission and vision to expand our offerings to the community.
  • Offering a variety of products in the store to support our educational classes and programs.

It is important that you are always flexing and changing to the needs of the community and market. We will continue to evaluate and grow our offerings in the community. I wish everyone a successful and prosperous 2023.

  • What is creating unhealthy relationships in your life?
  • What do you not enjoy doing anymore?
  • What behaviors or activities are no longer bringing you joy?
  • What wounds or pains need to be released?
  • What changes do you need to make in your life?
  • Where are you going?

Spend some time this month, thinking about these questions. If the committee that you volunteer for is not working in your life, resign from the position. If the sports team is not giving joy anymore, give your notice and leave the team. If the relationships in your life are weighting you down, it is time to make a change.

Think about these questions:

  • What are some new things that you would like to try?
  • What are some bucket list items that you can commit to?
  • What experiences would you like to try next year?
  • What relationships need to be created?

You can release through a burning or dissolving ceremony. We offer a burning ritual in our December Moon Ceremony. Come and join us this month. You do not want to carry all your baggage into 2023. It is the perfect time to bring in new things.

BUSINESS CORNER: Ground Your Ideas https://sacred-magic.fireside.fm/articles/ground-your-ideas Fri, 25 Nov 2022 11:00:00 -0700 vialet@discoveryourspiritualgifts.com 30832070-dcfa-44e2-af02-014f1fb2a24f Have you ever grounded your business ideas? This is the perfect time to think about your business’ mission and vision. Why did you start your business? What was the purpose of the business? WHY STATEMENT

Why did you start your business? It can be difficult to stay on purpose and achieve success with a business that was started for all the wrong reasons. Some individuals select a career, job, or business based mainly on making money. When I started college, I based my decision on my major on the area that I thought would make the most money in my life. I started college with a major in Information Technology. I was a single mother and I wanted to be stable financially. After taking several semesters in college, I discovered that the classes were not fueling my passions and I was unhappy.

Make sure that you are not driven by the dollar. I have found that when we are motivated by our passions and love, the financial success will automatically come. Think about it. When you ignite your passion for work, career, and/or business, you are aligning with the element of FIRE. This will drive success into the physical.

WHAT STATEMENT

After you understand the why of your business, it will be time to get focused on what you are going to do to be successful. You will need to be fully grounded and present to bring clarity and understanding of the WHAT.

Think about these questions:

  • What are you doing?
  • What will be your focus?
  • What is your purpose?
  • What is your goal?
  • What do you want to achieve?
  • What will success look like for you?

When you have the answers to these questions, you can get grounded in your ideas and start making a difference in your business.

Spirit of the Holidays https://sacred-magic.fireside.fm/articles/spirit-of-the-holidays Fri, 18 Nov 2022 11:00:00 -0700 vialet@discoveryourspiritualgifts.com a0545751-aed0-4809-8111-7cbf74d4e9f3 What does the spirit of the holidays mean to you? The holidays should be a time of gratitude, giving, and celebration. November is the month of being of service and gratitude. GRATITUDE

Spend some time this month being in a space of gratitude. What are you grateful for in your life? The power of gratitude can shift your life. Studies have shown that individuals that live their life in gratitude have better health, positive perspectives, and a more joyous life.

Some rituals:

  • State three things that you are grateful for everyday.
  • Write three things that you are grateful for in a ritual.
  • Reach out to three individuals every day and provide an inspiring message.
  • Create a gratitude jar and add daily notes of gratitude to the jar.
  • Post a message of gratitude on your social media pages.

GIVING

Many individuals are struggling or alone during the holidays. What can you do to brighten their experience during the time of year? Being of service doesn’t mean that you give in order to receive. It is about giving without any expectations for the energies being returned. You never know when you will be in a place where you would appreciate a little assistance in your life.

I love the individuals that give from their heart without any need for recognition. They set things in motion for someone to receive without recognition. Take time this month to be of service to your neighborhood, community, or city.

Some ideas:

  • Give to the food bank
  • Donate clothing or toys to a family or shelter
  • Provide blankets or socks to the homeless
  • Volunteer for a cause, community, and/or business

Most financial education programs will encourage you to give 10% of earnings. Give to the charities and programs that mean the most to you. At Discover Your Spiritual Gifts, I give back to my community through donations and scholarships based on need and commitment.

CELEBRATION

Find ways to connect and celebrate with family and friends. The memories created during the holidays can be lasting and powerful. Take time to celebrate with the people that you love and care about.

Some ideas:

  • Bake cookies together
  • Decorate gingerbread houses
  • Share a holiday meal
  • Watch a holiday movie or show

Find the spirit of the holidays through gratitude, giving, and celebration.

If you could use connection, community, or company this holiday season, check out our event calendar and join us for a holiday event (or two).

Holiday Survival Kit https://sacred-magic.fireside.fm/articles/holiday-survival-kit Fri, 11 Nov 2022 11:00:00 -0700 vialet@discoveryourspiritualgifts.com 2ed704e0-ff0d-4d75-97d2-d1d9c25aa1c0 Do you enjoy this time of year? I love the holidays. However, everyone does not feel that way about the holidays. Some individuals are depressed or anxious during the holidays. They are missing loved ones that have passed, they live far from family or friends, they have sad memories of past holidays, and/or they are alone. The holidays can be tough for them. For other individuals, they get swept up in the activities and to do list. The holidays become overwhelming, or the expectations seem impossible to overcome. The holidays can add extra stress and work. It is so easy to caught up in the commercialism of the holidays.

The holidays are magical for me. I love giving gifts to others. I will spend days and/or weeks looking for the perfect gift. I have always enjoyed shopping for others. The magic happens when the receiver is surprised and excited about the gift that they received. It is a bonus if you can find something that they have not even thought of, but love. The truth is that I can go over the top during the holidays with decorating, planning, and giving. I believe some of it comes from the fact that my birthday is a few days after Christmas, and it has not consistently been a great experience for me. I have turned to squeezing as much joy as I can from the holidays.

Some individuals and/or families have created amazing traditions for their holidays. These types of activities really bring in the spice of the holidays. The added touch of traditions can really enhance your experience.

Some cool traditions include:

  • Creating an advent calendar for the family
  • Writing an annual family recap for the holiday cards
  • Driving around for the holiday lights with hot chocolate
  • Receiving new pj’s for the holiday
  • Participating in a cookie exchange
  • Caroling in your neighborhood
  • Watching your favorite holiday movies or reading a seasonal book
  • Lighting a candle to remember the past
  • Supporting a charity or food drive

SURVIVAL

It is important that you honor your healing process during the holidays. Give yourself the opportunity to breathe and stop to enjoy the magic. Spend your time with the activities and people that bring you the most joy. Do not be afraid to turn down invitations that do provide you with loving support. Make the holidays about you and your needs. Honor yourself more.

If you could use connection, community, or company this holiday season, check out our event calendar and join us for a holiday event (or two).

BUSINESS CORNER: Conduct a S.W.O.T. Analysis https://sacred-magic.fireside.fm/articles/conduct-a-swot-analysis Fri, 04 Nov 2022 11:00:00 -0600 vialet@discoveryourspiritualgifts.com 253fd1a6-a8b7-47d6-8d46-6833d48a273a Do you have a business strategy? As a business owner, you should do the simple exercise of completing a S.W.O.T. analysis. A S.W.O.T. analysis requires that you list your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. This will provide you a clear picture of where to focus your energies on your business. You will not be perfect in everything and you will NOT be everything to everyone. A S.W.O.T. analysis will provide you with a strategic overview of your business.

INTERNAL: STRENGTHS

What are your strengths? Where do you succeed expectations in your business? Compare your internal and external strengths in the marketplace.

  • Brand recognition
  • Financial stability and/or resources
  • Product resources
  • Quality of products and/or services
  • Expertise & skill set
  • Technology
  • Process Efficiency
  • Customer relationships
  • Retention (repeat business)

If you are a spiritual business owner, you may consider this process to be cumbersome or difficult to complete. However, this can be key to the success of your business.

EXAMPLE: A Reiki Healer must understand their strengths.

  • Do they have a clear understanding of their client’s needs?
  • Do they offer a twist or new perspective to their healing practice?
  • Do they go the extra mile to nurture their relationships with their clients?
  • Do they have a solid view of their brand?

INTERNAL: WEAKNESS

What are your weaknesses? Do you lack the financial resources to support a startup or expansion of your business?

  • Brand recognition
  • Financial stability and/or resources
  • Quality of products and/or services
  • Professionalism
  • Expertise & skill set
  • Outdated systems & processes
  • Process Efficiency
  • Customer relationships
  • Retention (repeat business)

EXAMPLE: A Reiki Healer must understand their weaknesses.

  • Do they manually schedule their clients?
  • Do they double-book or miss scheduling opportunities?
  • Do they provide a professional space for their healings?
  • Do they have offerings for packages or repeat sessions?
  • Do they have the appropriate training and knowledge?

EXTERNAL: OPPORTUNITIES

Do you understand the opportunities available to grow your business? Do you know your competition in the marketplace? Do you know what makes you different?

  • Awareness of shifts in the market
  • Flexibility to manage change
  • Ability to be innovative
  • Desire to expand markets or reach
  • Leverage of technology

EXAMPLE: A Reiki Healer must understand their opportunities.

  • Do they understand the needs of their clients?
  • Do they flex to meet the needs of the market?
  • Do they use technology to streamline processes?

The best example was the healing practitioner’s ability to flex during COVID when the country was under lock down and there was a fear of exposure. Some shifted their business online temporarily, some shifted permanently, and some stopped working altogether.

EXTERNAL: THREATS

Do you understand the threats? Do you continuously survey your client and customer needs? Do you check market pricing?

  • Legal & regulatory compliance
  • Competitive pricing
  • Consumer shifts
  • Labor shortages
  • Technology changes

EXAMPLE: A Reiki Healer must understand their threats.

  • Do they understand the pricing of the competition?
  • Do they understand the shifts of the consumers?
  • Do they continually seek to enhance their gifts and abilities?
  • Do they invest in on-going education & training?

Take the time to do a S.W.O.T. analysis on your business. These will assist you in making better decisions with your business.

Taking Time for Magic https://sacred-magic.fireside.fm/articles/taking-time-for-magic Fri, 28 Oct 2022 11:00:00 -0600 vialet@discoveryourspiritualgifts.com e04d19d8-1fd7-4f8e-aeac-8567cdc33352 What does the word, magic, mean to you? I raised my daughters in the Southern Baptist Church. The word magic had some deep wounds, and I was personally afraid of anything connected to magic. I have also discovered that I have been hunted and killed in previous lifetimes for magical and Intuitive abilities. This is not an unusual response. Most individuals have closed their gifts or avoid any type of connection. The fear is buried deep in most people, and they do not even realize that it is blocking them from a joyful and abundant life. 

I love Dion Fortune’s definition of magic. "Magic is the art of causing changes to take place in consciousness in accordance with will.” Everything is created through thought. Some individuals are not aware of the fact that they are creating their own reality through their thoughts and words. When you become conscious and aware of your thoughts, you begin to shift your perspective and reality.

For me, magic is all around us. It lives in every sunset, sunrise, landscape, image, and smile. Magic is the beauty in all things. It is NOT about casting a spell. It is NOT forcing someone else to act, believe, or to think differently. Everyone has free will and choice. You must honor that universal law. Magic is about having respect for the universal power and energy that is all around us.

The month of October holds the energies of magic. The veils between the dimensions are the thinnest and you can easily connect and travel between dimensions through dream state and/or meditation. This month is a great time to sit in stillness and connect with your Divine Team. Your gifts will be elevated with the energies of the month.

MAGICAL ACTIVITIES

Spend some time this month exploring or experiencing magic in your life. Here are some ideas:

  • Experience the sunrise and/or sunset
  • Conduct a magical ceremony for yourself or others
  • Attend a magical class or event
  • Spend time in meditation connecting with your Divine Team
  • Make an essential oil spray or bath salt mixture
  • Create an herbal tea blend aligned with intention
  • Celebrate Samhain in a magical way

Magic does not have to be scary. However, you must respect the power of the energies of the universe. It is important to understand that you are not allowed to do harm to another human being and you must not push your will on another.

We celebrate sacredness, ceremony, community, and magic in our monthly moon ceremonies! This month, we are learning how to use candles to bring in our intentions and manifest using our personal magical abilities. Find out more about our moon ceremonies on our website.

Dragon Energy https://sacred-magic.fireside.fm/articles/dragon-energy Fri, 14 Oct 2022 11:00:00 -0600 vialet@discoveryourspiritualgifts.com 9a2e4702-3ddc-4d95-9a00-8c43b8416367 Are dragons real? Dragons are one of the most popular mythological creatures of our time. There have been dragon tales for centuries in many different cultures. You can do your own research and you will find that there are various views on the possibilities that dragons were or are real. I have connected with the dragons for years through meditation, ritual, and my spiritual work. I personally believe that dragons did exist at one time and that they were hunted and slayed by man. These divine creatures still exist within other dimensions and times. They hold the wisdom of the universe and provide protection for each of us and this planet.

Dragons are part of my Divine Team. They assist me in clearing negative and imbalanced energies in my space and center. I have given them permission to provide protection for me and my business. They will clear the energies with their breath of fire.

When the students in my Sacred Temple Mystery School step onto the path of Warriors of Light, they are given a full team of dragons to work with on their spiritual path. They have an Ascension Dragon and a dragon for each of the directions/elements. The dragons assist them in facing their shadows and working through the energies that block and prevent them from fully stepping onto their divine path.

If you are interested in working with the dragons, you can set the intention to call them forward in your life. They are a powerful force of energy, and they will assist you in making the big changes in your life. They are great to work with on deep healing, wounds, and trauma.

ARE YOU A DRAGON

Have you connected with the Dragon Realm? Do you think you are a dragon? Take the time to answer these questions:

  1. Are you protective of the people that you love?
  2. Do you have the endurance to complete a project or task?
  3. Are you passionate about your beliefs?
  4. Do you find yourself routing for the underdog?
  5. Are you able to provide deep wisdom to others?
  6. Do require the people in your life to be honest and authentic?
  7. Are you awkward in some situations?
  8. Do you love fire rituals?
  9. Are you loyal in your relationships?
  10. Do you respect authority?
  11. Are you a leader?
  12. Do others seek your advice?
  13. Are you grounding for other individuals?

If you answered yes to most of these questions, you may have some dragon energy in your soul.

BUSINESS CORNER: Time for You https://sacred-magic.fireside.fm/articles/business-time-for-you Fri, 07 Oct 2022 11:00:00 -0600 vialet@discoveryourspiritualgifts.com 90cb9758-e058-4ee1-ac8d-7129ad64b161 What does it mean to set healthy boundaries for yourself as a business owner? When you own your own business, it can be rewarding, fulfilling, and overwhelming. It can become all-consuming since everything falls on your shoulders. The success, the failure, the impact, the outcome. These can drive you to want to be connected to the business 24/7. BALANCE IS KEY

Studies have shown that working longer hours does not make us more productive. Productivity has shown to decrease with working more hours. It is important that you take time to care for yourself and allow yourself to recharge in order to be more productive in your business. When you are exhausted and/or overwhelmed, you are not able to give 100% of yourself to the task.

WORK LIFE BALANCE

You need to strive for work life balance when you own your own business. Here are some suggestions:

  1. Set your work hours: Block times in your schedule for specific task areas and include time for yourself.
  2. Prioritize: Take the time to prioritize your tasks weekly. Make a list of the four items that you must complete this week. Time and schedules tend to go off track, so don’t over commit.
  3. Make time for breaks: Take time to get away from the tasks and work. Make it a habit to take a walk, sleep in late, treat yourself to something fun, etc.
  4. Spend time with people you love: Make this a priority and give time to those that you love.
  5. Share the workload: Delegate tasks to others. Find things that people are willing to do or are good at doing.

Make sure that you are taking time for yourself. At Discover Your Spiritual Gifts, we have created a volunteer program. We have a Volunteer Coordinator that is managing the volunteer program. There is a wide-range of opportunities for individuals to step in and help the center. If you would like to volunteer, send your name and email address to info@discoveryourspiritualgifts.com and request to be added to the volunteer program.

The Power of Sound Healing https://sacred-magic.fireside.fm/articles/the-power-of-sound-healing Thu, 29 Sep 2022 11:00:00 -0600 vialet@discoveryourspiritualgifts.com b32ff81c-fa7e-47fd-8e84-487ca2fcb615 Have you ever experienced a sound healing? Sounds affect our emotions, thoughts, and physical health. Think about the impact sound has on your entire being when you are in a room with screaming children, you are sitting by a moving stream, or you are listening to the crash of the ocean waves. How does each one of these experiences affect your emotions, thoughts, and physical health? Everything is energy. Energy is everything. Everything is vibrating at a frequency, including your physical body. Sound frequencies slow down brain waves and allow an individual to reach a deep, restorative state of consciousness. Some individuals will go into deep meditation and others will be aware of the shifts happening within their physical body. It is not unusual for someone to feel blocked energies being released.

Some individuals understand that their music can directly impact their emotions, thoughts, and physical health. Have you ever reached for music to shift your mood or day? Some sounds and music make us feel better than others. You may not be consciously aware of how the sound is directly impacting you, but your body is taking the cue from these sounds and rhythms.

Your physical body is composed of 75 – 80 % water. Water is a conductor for energy and frequencies. Sound moves through the physical body and allows the sound waves to release block and stuck energy. This sound allows an individual to reset their energies and to come back to a balanced state. Most individuals feel completely relaxed after a sound healing or sound bath.

Sound healing has been an important part of healing throughout cultures and traditions. The Ancient Egyptians believed that sounds could generate vibrations with healing abilities. They would use “toning” as an ancient method of healing. They would manipulate the vowel sounds using breath and voice to bring forth toning. The goal of the healing is to return individuals into harmonic balance.

BENEFITS

  • Reduces anxiety and stress
  • Reduces headaches
  • Reduces anger, frustration, and depression
  • Shifts your moods and energy
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Lowers cholesterol
  • Assists with pain management
  • Reduces risk of stroke and coronary artery disease
  • Improves sleep
  • Clears energy blocks
  • Releases stuck energy in the physical
  • Boosts confidence
  • Brings in more clarity

Sound baths are an opportunity for individuals to have a sound healing session for 30 – 90 minutes at an affordable cost. Most of these program’s range in pricing from $20 - $60 depending on the number of individuals playing and the sound instruments being used. A monthly commitment to treating yourself and your physical body to sound can be considered a commitment to self-care.

Our center hosts four Sacred Sound Baths each month for our community. This experience includes two healers, on both sides of the room, with attendees resting in the middle of the room.

Energies of the Autumn Equinox https://sacred-magic.fireside.fm/articles/energies-of-the-autumn-equinox Thu, 22 Sep 2022 11:00:00 -0600 vialet@discoveryourspiritualgifts.com a31e3004-842c-4cd1-8e61-04c9efac9bcf The autumn equinox in the northern hemisphere is September 22nd this year. This marks the first day of fall. During an equinox, the sun is crossing the Earth’s equator. This is the time of the year when the days become shorter than the nights. REFLECTION

The month of September is a time for Reflection. Take a pause this month for reflecting on the year.

Questions

  • What were your goals, dreams, and desires for 2022?
  • What have you accomplished, completed, and shifted in 2022?
  • What do you want to complete before the holidays or the end of the year?
  • What actions or steps need to be taken in the next few months?

Allow yourself to step into the element of water. The element of water brings in the energies of reflection, flow, healing and forgiveness and it allows us to connect to the emotions of our heart. Take time to find your flow for the rest of the year and to be consciously mindful of your choices and decisions.

ENERGIES OF FALL

The energies of early fall, bring in the time for harvest. This is normally when families and communities would gather their harvest and prepare for return. They would celebrate the harvest and hold a space of gratitude for another opportunity to collect the bounty of the earth. What have you been harvesting in your life? What are you grateful for in your life? As the leaves change color, the air becomes crisper, and the days get shorter, make sure that you are taking the time to appreciate this season of harvest and connection.

Some ideas to consider:

  • Take a drive to view the fall colors in the mountains
  • Find a pumpkin farm and gather family and friends for a harvest
  • Look for an old fashion fall festival to enjoy
  • Create or bake fresh apple treats and desserts
  • Mix up a pot of apple cider

Start some new fall traditions for you and your loved ones this holiday season. Take the time to reflect, be grateful, and to connect to this beautiful planet.
