Christmas is just a few short days away, and then we have a brand new year. That’s why I thought it would be nice to chat about a fun, easy, and practical way to change your vibration and start 2018 with a clean and sparkling tone!

I recently saw a friend of mine who had just had a powerful Pranic Healing session that really helped her shift and release some dense energies. As she was talking about it, I noticed that her wedding band, which has diamonds all around it, was sparkling. I complimented her on it and she said “Oh my God! It’s because HE CLEANED IT!” Ever the pragmatist, I asked, “You mean he CLEANSED it with energy, or he literally CLEANED it?” And she said “BOTH! He did an energy clearing on it, and then he scrubbed it with a jewelry cleaner.” I had to laugh because it was so unique and kinda funny to me…and I just absolutely loved it.

Her band was so pretty and sparkling, and she herself seemed more radiant and buoyant. We talked about how the clean and sparkling ring might bring a nice fresh energy into her marriage and life in general.

You see, the things you wear often become a part of your vibration. They take on the energy you emanate. If the things you are wearing are dull, worn out, or dingy, that will affect your energy too. Just like your jewelry can get gunky, so can your aura/vibration.

In the video above, I chat about all of this, including the idea of holding on to things that you don’t necessarily like or even want to have. By wearing things that are not in an optimal, fresh, clean condition, or by keeping and wearing things you don’t love, you are weighing yourself down, and that energy does affect you.

But by ceremoniously adorning yourself with jewelry and clothing that you love, articles that are kept clean and in nice condition, you are not only gracing your vibration with their essence, but you are making a statement to yourself about your true value and worth.

Just as you cleanse your crystals and clear your home, you can also cleanse and clear the stuff you put on your body. Maybe set your jewelry out in the sunlight or moonlight to charge and clear it. Or, if it won’t damage it, clean it with sea salt. And the same goes for your garments. Shake them out, give them some air to breathe, or donate them if they no longer resonate with you.

I send you the BEST wishes for a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year. And remember, if there’s anything in your life that you need assistance with, I’m here to help with readings, energy healings, on-demand meditations and my psychic development training program. So just reach out! 🙂


When I first started becoming aware of the world of energy, and I heard about “emotional empaths,” I thought they were a rare breed of super-psychic, sensitive people who were different from everyone else. It turns out, that’s not necessarily the case. Empaths, you see, are highly affected by the energies around them. Often referred to as “sponges,” and they get thrown off by other people’s moods and emotions, sensing their joy and excitement (which can be ok to feel), but also their anger, depression, sorrow, and pain (which is awful to feel – especially because a lot of empaths have a hard time discerning whether these feelings belong to themselves, or someone else). Nowadays, I’m almost starting to think it’s more strange NOT to be an empath than to be one, because most of the people I meet for readings and healings are emotional empaths to some degree or another.
If you find your emotions swinging all over the place for no apparent reason, or start to feel overwhelmed, weirded out, or bombarded by energies in different places or spaces, you might (like a lot people) be empathic. The following techniques can help you to get grounded, centered, and back to your own vibration.
1. If a place feels off to you, leave it. Don’t hang around for any “logical” reason – just get out. 
There’s a shop near my home that has amazing clothes, but every time I go in there I get a headache and leave feeling crappy. I’m not going there again anytime soon – unless I’m really ready to risk a potentially amazing fashion find for feeling bad for an afternoon.
2. Do certain people make you feel “off?” If so, create distance between your body and theirs. 
Don’t keep interacting with someone who makes you feel uncomfortable in any way. Get the heck away from them! If any of these people happen to be your boss or co-workers, it’s time to get a new job.
3. If you’re stuck sitting somewhere and you can’t stand it anymore, get up and start walking around. 
Leave the building and walk around the block if you can – just start moving.
4. When you’re feeling down, or not yourself, listen to music. 
Trust your intuition to tell you what you need – soothing, classical music, upbeat, fun music, or mellow, chill-out tunes. The notes will shift your vibration and bring you back to center.
5. Feeling totally burned out? Retreat in solitude for a while.
Take a bath, hide out in your bedroom and watch movies or read books or magazines, or go by yourself to your favorite place in nature. If you can, get out of town for a weekend. The distance will recharge your batteries.
6. Create an Energetic No-Fly Zone around your aura.
Envision your aura as it surrounds your body. Imagine it stretching to 10 feet (or more) in every direction, up above your head, down below your feet, and all around your body. Then see a strong, unbreakable, bullet-proof shield around the edges that keeps all foreign energy out. If you’re feeling super bombarded and threatened, make the shield into iron and put sharp thorns or spikes in it. The more you reinforce this imagery, the more you’ll find that people respect your space, and your vibration will in turn become less sponge-like and absorbent.
7. Did you just get slimed by someone? This shamanic/witchy routine may help.
This technique should be reserved for when you really super need help with clearing. It’s called an “egg cleanse.” Take a raw white egg, hold it between your hands, and pray, pray, pray that it will absorb any negative vibes from your body. Run it all over your head, down your arms, and circle it around each of your chakras, envisioning at all times that it’s absorbing any and all negative energy from your body. When you’re done, throw it into the toilet so it cracks, and then flush the egg – and the bad vibes – away forever.
8. Get creative with crystals, oils, and amulets.
There’s a reason these tools have been in existence for ages. Black tourmaline is great for empaths. Hold it in your hand or over your solar plexus chakra and imagine it protecting you from unwanted stuff. Lemon essential oil cleanses other people’s vibes from your body, and rosemary, lavender, and cedar help strengthen your personal vibration. Any amulet in the form of a ring, necklace, or bracelet will remind you of your own strength and help you from soaking up, and being affected by, other people’s stuff.
9. Go into child’s pose.
This yoga position always helps you regain your own energy. Take a few deep, cleansing breaths and ask your guides to help you release any energy that’s not yours so that you can stay centered, focused, and grounded.
10. Ask yourself what you need right now, and then do it – immediately!
It could be as simple as petting your cat, going for a run, downing a glass of water, eating some chocolate or watching something that will make you laugh out loud. Try this experiment in tuning in to your higher self, and you will definitely receive guidance that is good for you at any given moment.
