THE PULSE: The Great Wind-Up
How’s your September going? We don’t know about you, but it feels like “the great wind-up.” It’s as if the month so far has been all about cranking and now we’re all “wound up.” The days are extremely full — and each one brings something entirely different and all-consuming.
We’ve felt the need to remind ourselves each night that we can release anything that didn’t bring us joy that day and ask for wisdom and healing to come to us as we sleep. When we wake we say, “thank you for the new day and for the possibilities.” We felt like you may want to hear that too!
For those that are interested in Astrology, Mercury is now in retrograde through September 23. So if you have some breakdowns in communication or with technology…you know where some of it is coming from. Check out what else to expect from this particular retrograde.
On this week’s podcast we introduce you to two dynamic forces, meet the Spirit Mamas!
In this week's podcast, we are excited to introduce you to two spiritually conscious mamas using their intuition, abilities, and power to uplift, heal and guide other people – and especially other mamas. Victoria Nielsen is an Akashic records reader, Breathwork facilitator, Intuitive Energy Healer and mama. Her personal mission is to help new and old mamas everywhere find the same love in their heart for themselves that they have for their babies. Tiffany Wilkes is a certified Reiki Energy Healer, Sound Practitioner, and Spiritual Coach. As a wife and a mother of two sons. It is very important for her to show them how to live their true life's purpose. The Spirit Mama’s mission is to help you remember who you are. Their ultimate goal is to empower and activate your intuition so you can trust and empower yourself. Here’s a snippet of our soul + wisdom enriching conversation. Robyn + Karen: Where did the name “Spirit Mamas” come from? Tiffany: Victoria and I were pregnant at the same time, and we were talking about how we could be better moms. How do we raise conscious kids? What can we do to nurture our children? I was a Reiki healer, Victoria’s an Akashic record reader. And we thought, what if we call ourselves Spirit Mamas? So it started with us just wanting to provide our own separate spiritual gifts to people as moms, but also trying to figure out how we help moms live in their essence, be present and listen to their intuition, while also helping their children as well. Victoria: I really think our entire business has been very intuitively led because we were open to the signs and to say, “okay, Universe, tell us what's next. Tell us where we need to go. How do we need to help people?” And we've seen the magic from that. There always seems to be a common theme of the women that come into our groups and then being able to see them all rise together and heal together. R&K: That is so beautiful! So tell us how you work? Victoria: What's similar in both of our sessions is they are very intuitively led. So anytime you work with me, I'm going to open the Akashic records to have your specific guidance come through. And every session is entirely different. If you came to me today and asked me questions, and then we had another session tomorrow and you asked the same questions, different guidance could come through based on what you need to hear. So the Records are mutable and will change based on that. We always open the session with the Records and then we flow. So sometimes it's me leading you through breathwork, sometimes it's doing some energy clearing. Sometimes we get up and dance. Actually, a lot of times we get up and dance because I truly believe moving our bodies and shaking out that energy is something that everyone should do daily. And throughout the session, things will come through for you to do afterwards. So whether it's journaling affirmations, or continuing with the energy work that we've done together, I'm only holding the space for you. You're doing the energy work yourself. You're the one that's clearing those energetic cords or those energetic blockages while we're together. Tiffany: I do Reiki and I am an Intuitive. A lot of times I see colors or if you're having back or shoulder pain, I will feel that pain in my body as well. And I know how to focus in on that. And a lot of people don't tell me everything, but by the time I get them on the table, I'm asking, “are you having chest pains?” And they answer, “how did you know?” I say, “I can feel it, even though you didn't mention that when I asked if anything was bothering you physically. I'm still able to feel that and work on those things.” After the Reiki session I am able to tell you the colors that I see, and any spirit animals that have come through, visions that I receive, and any ancestors that have come through that want to give messages for you through me. And then I'll pull a card from an Oracle Card deck. I actually usually pull three and then we'll walk through those cards. And from that I'm giving you guidance on what I think you should do. I also give you what I call Spirit Work or homework for Soul Work for you to take away with you and for you to build upon after we've met. So whether that's a spiritual bath, it's meditating, it's doing affirmations for a week or a month. I'm giving you homework assignments to remind you of the power that you hold within. And I think that's what Victoria and I have in common is whatever we're saying and doing, it's really for you to remember and for you to really do the work for you to clear those gaps. I've been doing it for so long, but I'm always so amazed with what comes through, but the one thing is, I want you to walk away with that work that you can take into your life each day. And for you to remember that you truly hold the power. I have so many people who. Come to me, so broken. And then a week later, they're like, I just got a brand new job. How did that happen? And I tell them, you cleared that space. You remembered the power that you have that you hold within. R&K: Tell us about the Spirit Mama Community. Tiffany: Victoria and I have built this amazing Spirit Mamas community. We have a monthly membership where moms connect and we have monthly energy healing sessions, where either Victor and myself are doing energy healing, or we bring in a guest to share their gifts. All of the mamas in the group aren't moms, but we are here to support each other on this spiritual journey. What's so beautiful is to have somebody who can relate and can give you advice on what you should do or what their experience was like, it’s amazing. When I first went through my spiritual awakening, I didn't have that support. And now to have this group of women who can support one another, it makes my heart so full because it comes from such a pure place. Victoria: I think it's really important to tell anyone, listening. what Tiffany and I do. It's not anything that you can't do. You can absolutely do all of these things that we do and more, you just have to stop and listen to yourself and find what's right for you. And I think part of that is to get to a place that says, “I don't care. I'm gonna do it.” It’s mentally finding that authenticity, finding that little spark within you that's always been there, that maybe was crushed. And so you hide it away until one day it starts to blossom again. And you find that one friend that really helps you bring it into a full flickering flame again, to say this is who you really are. It's a remembering. R&K: Thank you Victoria and Tiffany. It's such a joy to meet you both and to share what you're doing!

Connect to Your Inner Voice + Hype Letter to Yourself
CONNECT TO YOUR INNER VOICE Victoria: You don't have to meditate for an hour every day to
change your life. You can just take 10 minutes every morning to journal, to have your cup of coffee outside, where you open your senses and see what signs nature has to share with you. I think we can get really in our heads about how it should look or what we need to do. And it can be really simple. It can be as simple as stopping to take five deep breaths when your child is having a tantrum, it can be as simple as closing your eyes and visualizing the life that you want to have. It doesn't have to be this huge thing. You don't have to be a monk, meditating on top of a mountain. It's possible in everyday moments to connect inward and connect with your inner voice with this simple exercise. 1. Close your eyes and inhale through the nose. 2. Exhale through the mouth very slowly for five breaths. 3. Take your awareness wherever in your body, you have felt your intuition previously. 4. Maybe it's your heart. Maybe it's your belly. 5. Ask yourself, “How can you nourish yourself today?” 6. Wait until you have fully exhaled to hear that answer arise within you and then go do that today. Tiffany: I want to remind people there's always this ego in the inner voice. And what I will say about the inner voice is it's calm, it's non questionable. It's love. And if you're listening and your ego steps in, you feel a little anxious. You get questioning, that's the ego. And so a lot of times it takes practice to really feel that inner voice. But like Victoria said, if you go to that place where you felt that intuition before, whether it's the heart space or it could be the good of your stomach, it could be your head wherever it is. It's that calming feeling and that knowing. Your inner voice isn’t going to give you any anxiety about the answer. It's not going to make you question. HYPE LETTER TO YOURSELF One of Robyn’s action items, after having a session with Tiffany, was to write a letter of praise to herself. Robyn has nicknamed this the “Hype Letter to Yourself,” and highly recommends you do this to-do as well! Here are a few suggestions + questions to think about when writing your own “hype letter.”
Write as if no one else is ever going to read it. (No one will unless you want them to!)
If you could brag about yourself without worrying about what anyone else would think, what would you say?
What do you do better than anyone else you know?
What do you consider your strengths in life?
What are your strengths specific to work?
What makes you, YOU?!
Don’t be shy!
What words of encouragement can you give yourself for those moments when you need them most?
When you’re done, read through it…and read through it on a daily basis. Use this as a constant reminder of what you bring to each and every day. You are worthy. You are valuable. You are worthy of the hype!!
THE DOWNLOAD: Float + Your Inner Flow
This week’s theme is definitely about water! It is all about floating and flow. Allow the Universe and Universal wisdom within yourself to guide you. Propel yourself forward in the certainty that you are always surrounded by love.
Take a moment to feel the release of your breath, just as Victoria shared with us this week, and feel your inner FLOW.
Waterfall of purple and white light. It is the backdrop to the path we walk.
The dawn of a new age is coming. Light and love always win. Take a deep breath and take your time. Patience is key. There is no need to rush.
Be aware and alert as you go through these days. What signs are coming your way? What is the Universe trying to tell you on a daily basis? Are you in the flow? Or are you going against the current?
If you are going against the current, what do you need to do to change that so that things flow easily? What do you need to release? What do you need to let go of? Are you trying to be “right?”
Is there really a right or a wrong?
What are you holding on to so tightly that isn't getting you where you need to go? What is it?
Identify that and you will see things fall into place in a way you could have never imagined. It will feel effortless once you let go.
Are you amazed by the connections you feel all around you? The synchronicities? It’s astounding. It’s a web of frequencies that are meant to overlap and help you know you are in alignments with your life’s path. And you can feel the sync. Ask for more of them to appear, and they will.
There is a cascading of energy and circumstances that are around you like the waterfall.
There is so much energy to help propel you forward. See the beauty in it. Feel the force. Tap into that force. You are able to tap into it. It’s an invisible, but powerful energy field all around you. It wants to support your every move and help you move into that flow.
Close your eyes and you will be able to feel it.
Surrounding you with love.
Sometimes it can feel as if you are on a lonely boat drifting into the darkness. And you aren’t sure if you should be afraid of what you can’t see, or if you should just lean into the calmness of the unknowing. Of not being anywhere. Of not being able to measure time.
Sometimes, early mornings can feel this way. In that moment before you open your eyes. Not quite sure of where you are…in a dream, or somewhere you don’t remember.
With the weight of expectations (your own and others) it can be easy to get caught up in your story. To feel the need to fill in the gaps with details instead of just quietly letting the silence take the center stage.
Life doesn’t have to be about actions all the time. Doing nothing can sometimes get you faster to your destination than a series of checklists.
Can you for a moment, just be?
Can you allow yourself to savor in the knowingness that in this very moment there is nothing for you to do?
Can you lay back down in that boat and float, looking up at the stars? Trusting that there are forces who in their loving wisdom who are watching over you, guiding you to exactly where you need to go?
Breathe into the peaceful giving up of expectation. And just for this moment, immerse yourself into the quiet, vast, exuberance of peace. Feel the life-force within you, knowing that you are all. You are powerful. You are enough. Just as you are, exactly where you are.
Allow your inner light to shine back up at the heavens. You are a being of love who has had the courage to be here. To give your best. To step into the boat - this journey of life.
And if you did nothing more, in this here and now moment, love yourself for embarking on this courageous unknown adventure.
You are supported always. You are whole and worthy. And you are never alone.
