Who is there for you?

Who is there for you?

One of the things I have realized in my own spiritual journey, and have witnessed with many of my clients over the years, is that as you grow more conscious and aware of your spiritual power, you become very picky with whom you share your life with, and even more so, whom you trust to share your troubles with.

Let me explain …

As you gain the realization of how your energy affects your experiences and the true power that your thoughts, words and actions have in your life, you become even more sensitive to those around you. This is why during periods of spiritual growth you often see people finally removing toxic people from their lives and see that even their circle of friends may shift. And even after making positive changes like that in your life, there are those who remain close to you that still may not be equipped to support you in the ways you need when you are experiencing challenges and stress. 

They may love you completely, but:

  • May be an excessive worrier and go to worst case scenarios in their mind.
  • Get super emotional and don’t have strength to lend you.
  • Look at everything from a negative point of view.
  • Say they will pray for you, but you feel they have their own idea of what is in your best interest instead of praying for your highest good.
  • Are so rooted in fear they cannot hold the loving, sacred space you need to move forward fearlessly.

For someone who is always trying to stay positive and hold a certain vision for your own life as well as others, this can leave you feeling isolated and alone in your troubles and pain. It can make you feel completely empty, tired and overwhelmed and in need of someone who can help fill up your love tank.

It is like you want to share, but you hold back because you know that you only desire people who won’t add their own misery, fear or negativity to your situation. You hold everything inside and try to handle it all alone.

Luckily, you have spiritual helpers available at any given moment, but even they know we are in need of earthly support too.

So, what do you do in moments like these when you could really use a good supportive ear, a shoulder to lean on and a motivated cheerleader?

Here are some things to keep in mind when you feel like you are going it alone and some action steps to take to move closer to a place of empowerment:

  • Don’t be afraid to ask for what you need from a loved one. A loving and gentle reminder that it is important to you to hold positive thoughts around your situation could be very helpful. You will know who you feel is capable of this or not.
  • Ask your angels who in your life right now is willing and able to be positive, supportive and helpful to you at this time. You may be surprised as to what they reveal to you.
  • If you are a part of any spiritual social media groups, post a prayer request there. If you don’t feel like sharing all of the specifics, you don’t have to. You could simply ask for support, clarity, strength or peace. Chances are you have been willing to be there for countless others and it is important to balance your giving and receiving. Allowing others to pray for you and hold sacred space is a wonderful start. The power of prayer in numbers is magical, so receive. 
  • Ask to increase your circle of spiritually minded friends so that your support system can naturally grow larger. This is one of the reasons I started teaching many, many years ago. I knew that people were needing to connect with like-minded spiritual seekers and I was right. I thoroughly enjoyed watching everyone make loving connections and seeing friendships form in front of my eyes. This also is true for my online courses. You are drawn to people who can be a blessing in your life. You just need to pay attention and be willing to open up and connect.
  • Have someone close to you that you trust enough to share with but who doesn’t understand your spiritual stance? Explain to them your spiritual principals and the focus and energy you are placing around healing your situation or drawing in the experience you desire, and then ask them to join you in holding your same vision.

I hope you find this helpful when moving through times of stress and worry. I personally welcome you to email my office with your prayer requests too. It is my joy and honor to lift your needs and desires to the divine. When our energy comes together we can do magical things!

Wrapping you in Some Extra Love and Compassion

Wrapping you in Some Extra Love and Compassion

Dear Hearts,

Just as your bodies pick up and carry stress, so does your heart. We feel the burdens and confusion you hold. Some of you are dealing with a feeling of great sadness. As you process things, you hide this part of yourself from the world and even those closest to you.

We wish you felt more comfortable being open about your struggles, disappointments, frustrations, and pain.  It is crucial for you to find ways to be kind to yourself, allowing yourself to feel everything you need. Please remember that we are here to help you in every time of need.

Be kind to yourself and others. Amid all the controversy your world is facing, it is easy to feel lost and unsure and separated from the whole. Please remember that everyone is here to learn and evolve, and another’s path may look quite different from yours but is still vitally important in healing the earth. Not only do we want you to hold compassion for yourself, but we ask that you extend it to others.

Love is what heals people, situations, and the world as a whole. It is important that you know that you can hold your beliefs and convictions in loving ways and continue to shine your own unique light into this world. We know that change can feel less than pleasant. But you are ready for it, and you have needed it, and we are here to guide and support you along the way.

Hold the vision you have for your life, and we will hold the sacred space for your hopes and desires to become your reality. 

Love,
Your Angels 

So, what does compassion look like and how can you give more compassion to yourself and others?

Ways to show compassion to yourself:

  • Acknowledge your accomplishments. Too often we can overlook all of the hard work we have already done and only focus on everything we have not triumphed over.
  • Commit to doing something that makes you happy. Spend time with a friend, go on an adventure, listen to your favorite music or sit in the sun. Whatever you do, do it because it brings you joy.
  • Give your body some love. Sleep in, get a massage, cook a delicious, healthy meal or take a hot bath. 
  • Give yourself a break. We are our own worst critics and expect perfection out of ourselves and often look at a mistake as a failure instead of just learning and moving on. 
  • Stand in your power. Do whatever it takes to remember who you are. Standing in your power honors not only yourself but everyone you come into contact with.

Ways to show compassion to others:

  • Use encouraging and positive words. Words are powerful and positive words can be healing, especially when you feel another is struggling.
  • Acknowledge others. This could be a smile, a hello, opening a door, or simply saying thank you.
  • Be present. When you are with others, investing your time and focus makes a huge difference and being a good listener makes them feel valued.
  • Give a hug. A handshake or a fist bump works too. Physical touch can be empowering (if you feel safe to do so.) 
  • Be motivating. This isn’t about cheering them up as much as it is about cheering them on. We all know what it feels like to lose steam when we really need to keep going.  

As the angels stated in their message above, they don’t want you to face your disappointments and struggles alone. They have compassion for you and want nothing but the best for you.  

I hope that each and every day, you are reminded of the love that your angels have for you and that you allow and invite this love into your life. May you feel it in big, bright, glorious ways, and may you stay committed to that vision you hold for yourself.

Wishing you much joy and many blessings,
Heather

Dealing with Resistance and Jumping Off the Struggle Bus

Dealing with Resistance and Jumping Off the Struggle Bus

For anyone that has followed my work on any level, you already know that my angels are my teammates and I consult with them daily to gain clarity, understanding, wisdom, insights, support, and faith. When I am feeling burdened, I often say I am on the Struggle Bus. But the thing about my association with the struggle bus is that buses are always in motion and they are always stopping to let people on and off. So, when I feel like I am on the struggle bus my goal is to get off as soon as possible and preferably at a fabulous destination. 😊 Now, let me be clear. I am never alone on the struggle bus. My angels joyfully ride with me to keep me company and keep me in check. They offer their divine wisdom as to how to get off the bus and back into my high vibe groove and flow. But lately, I have spent way too much time on the struggle bus.  I was truly beginning to wonder if my bus had some type of unlimited gas supply or something. I mean, why have we not made any stops? And, although I would never hope for another person to struggle, why do I feel so alone on this bus?

Well, if you have been feeling the same way I want to share with you how I work through times of resistance, even when it seems to linger a little too long.

First, you are not alone. 

Second, resistance comes both internally and externally and it is important to look at both.

LET’S START WITH THE EXTERNAL RESISTANCE.

These are things like your computer failing you at the most inopportune time. The flat tire. The dropped phone calls. The traffic jams. The electricity going out right before your important Zoom meeting or spilling your coffee all down your suit right as you are heading out the door for that important meeting.  Now, I know these things happen in life but what I’m talking about is a feeling that something is working against you. Purposely.

INTERNAL RESISTANCE IS DAUNTING.

Nothing is worse than knowing what you need to do but lack the desire or motivation to get it done. Or, have the motivation to get it done but struggle with focus, clarity, and direction.

Then there is the lovely doubt. The insecurities and wonderings making us question if what we have to offer really matters. There is the nagging feeling that everything is hard when in truth it is simple when we map out the plan, it just takes gusto.

The body and soul can feel the resistance too. It is not just a mental thing. The sense is like moving through wet concrete. As if something is trying to hold us back with as much strength and might as possible and we are aware we must take control and shift gears before we go down.

So how do we keep our head above it all so that we don’t lose sight of where we are meant to go? How do we get off the Struggle Bus???

Clear the Confusion

– First, ask your spiritual team if you are still on the right path. When resistance shows up it can make us question everything. So, instead of just assuming that the resistance is a roadblock telling you that you are headed in the wrong direction, ask. Gaining clarity in these moments is of utmost importance because otherwise, we get distracted, frustrated and then can become stuck.

Dig In

– If the above action lets you know you need to go a different direction, great! You now know what to do. But if you have validated that you are on the right track, you know you have to stay focused and dig in. Be persistent regardless of the resistance. I know, I know. This is easier said than done. But now is the time to stand your ground and be unwavering in your trust and faith.

Uncover the Resistance

– Understanding where your resistance is coming from can be very enlightening and empowering. I want you to remember that when we have committed to making big changes it is completely normal to feel resistance. It is as if your old self and your ego team up against you because all they want is for you to stay in that place you’ve always been. There used to be a saying that said, ” The bigger the purpose the bigger the fear.” Well, I say, the stronger the resistance the greater the potential. You are here to live to your fullest potential, so, start asking yourself these questions?

Regardless of these obstacles, should I still be moving forward?

What will my reward be for not giving up?

If I do nothing and give up now, how will I feel tomorrow?

Are my goals more important than the discomfort I feel right now?

What help can I call on to move through this resistance?

How can I break up my action steps, so I feel less overwhelmed?

What choice and decision will honor my highest self?

You know yourself better than anyone and your honesty here is important. Often, when we uncover the true answers to these questions the resistance begins to loosen its grip. Acknowledgment is a power move that provides wisdom.

Now let’s talk about those angels that ride with me on the struggle bus. Who can you call on to help you gain momentum and stride again? Better yet, help you deflect all of that resistance like a superhero.

Here are my go-to spiritual helpers when resistance is my issue:

Archangel Uriel Helpful in getting my priorities straight and my mind clear and focused

Archangel Metatron For helping to clear self-sabotaging ways, overwhelm and procrastination

Archangel Raziel To help me remember who I am and what my connection to source/creator is

Archangel Ariel To stand in courage, conviction and lovingly claim my power

Archangel Jophiel To keep my thoughts positive and in alignment with my truth

Archangel Michael To protect me from any negative forces, including myself

It is super easy to call on your angels for help! You don’t even have to remember their names.

Just simply say “angels help” and they are with you and ready to assist!

Remember, the resistance does not last forever. There must be big positive changes on the horizon, so keep pushing forward! And, if I happen to see you on the struggle bus, I’ll give you a fist bump and a wink, so you know you are not alone.

Love and solidarity,

Heather

The NOT To-Do List

The NOT To-Do List

Well, here we are, plowing through January. It seems like life is moving at warp speed, yet, at the same time, we can often feel stuck in the same ole, same ole over and over again. Lately, my clients have been expressing their desire for clarity. There is this eagerness to make much-needed changes and move forward to the life they have dreamt about. They can feel the need to shift gears but there also seems to be a paralyzing sense of confusion keeping them stuck. It is as if the answers they seek are evading them. If any of this sounds familiar to you then keep reading because the angels have the advice to help you get moving in the right direction.

LIFE CAN BE BUSY. To-do lists can be never-ending and distractions seem to pop up at every turn. Ever make a plan and even find some motivation to get things done but somehow feel like you still don’t make any progress?

This can feel super defeating and leave you feeling completely drained.

It is discouraging to see that time keeps passing by and you feel like you are still at a standstill. The standing still is so frustrating because your soul is screaming there is something so much more that is out there. You believe this to be true but just can’t seem to get there.

The angels are saying now IS the time you must do things differently.

Those dreams you have been dreaming and those changes you have been trying to make ARE important and getting there involves follow through and stealth attention.

They suggest starting a NOT TO DO LIST and focus on that first before you aim your sights on creating another To-Do list.

A Not to Do List?  Yes!!!

Here is what they suggest NOT TO be doing now and why:

JAM PACK YOUR SCHEDULE

This is not working. Truth is, it probably never has been. Now, you must step into a new way of managing your life, time, and energy. These goals and changes that are important to you need your time, energy, and focus. Even small steps will lead to progress. Move them to the top of your priority list and potentially to the beginning of your day. This will help you gain momentum. This means you may have to let other things go. It will be okay. The angels can help you define those things that are less important right now so that you can focus on true priorities. This also means scheduling time for rest and fun so you can experience more balance.

GET DISTRACTED

As I said above the angels can help you prioritize where your energy and attention need to be and then help you stay focused. Distractions are normal but you have the power to steer yourself back on track the moment you realize you have veered off course. Limit social media scrolling and binge-watching television. You can set time for that in the latter part of the day as a reward for accomplishments, but still, place a limit on it.

FORGET YOUR SELF CARE

Self-care is a must! Especially right now. Reviewing your habits and asking yourself what you need will be key. Listen to what your body, mind, and soul tells you. There is so much wisdom to be revealed when you simply ask yourself that question. Commit to the time, energy and effort it will take to give yourself what it is asking for. This will begin to shift your energy immediately and you will quickly begin to get into a higher vibrational flow. Self-care is an investment that always pays great returns!

GET STUCK IN THE PAST

You are moving forward and unless you are pulling out the growth and lessons from the past you do not need to be there. Your focus needs to be on what you are wanting to create which is new, different, and amazing. Pain, suffering, regrets, grief, and sorrow are not going to help you get where you are going. If these things show up ask if they have some important wisdom to offer you and if not disconnect and move on.

HOLD ON TO THINGS YOU DO NOT ABSOLUTELY LOVE

This includes clutter, clothes, commitments, friendships, habits, and hobbies. You are moving into a time where things need to be a Heck Yes or a Hell No! What is this stuff laying around? Do I use it? Do I need it? These clothes in my closet, when have I wore them last? Do I feel awesome in them? If no, let them go. Your commitments, do they still serve you and the higher good or are they draining you of time and energy? It is okay to move on. Are your friendships a wonderful balance of giving and take? Are any toxic or unhealthy? If so, time to cut the cord. Have you engaged in a hobby lately? Are you doing it out of habit or are you still passionate about it? Love and joy lift us out of limitations and into our highest potential! This is where you want to be.

PERFECTION

This hardly exists and it is the ultimate stalling tactic. Do not wait for what you think maybe the definition of perfect. Just get moving and you will gain more clarity and certainty along the way. As you create your new reality more pieces of the puzzle will fall into place as you consistently tune in to yourself and your desires. Action is necessary and we rarely have it all figured out in the beginning. Having a plan is good but staying in the planning mode gets you nowhere.

FORGET YOUR WHY

Do not forget your why! Why do you want to reach these goals? How will your life be different? How will it be better? If your why is important and big enough the how will be just as important to you too. Let the excitement and importance of your why help you figure out the how. There are always solutions to any challenge. And, as I always say God and the angels are in the solution business!

GOING IT ALONE

Feeling overwhelmed and the weight of your dreams beginning to feel heavy on your shoulders? As I mentioned above, God and the angels are in the solution business. Have you asked for help? Maybe you need to ask for earthly help to show up too. Who is already in your life that loves you enough to hold your dreams and visions with you and maybe even be an accountability partner? Joining forces with a trusted ally can be equally beneficial and keep you in check and on track. Opening yourself up to receive is key to getting in the flow and that is where you want to be.

 Putting these things into practice, you will begin to open a space for something new to enter. Before you know it you will look back and see progress instead of stalemate.

Keep in mind that every step forward is taking you in the right direction. It will be important to track your wins so as to remind your ego when it wants to rear its ugly head. Don’t give up before your blessings have a chance to surprise you. Prayer, intentions, and actions are the seeds you have been planting and your crops are growing into fruition. Do you believe it? If not, then a good dose of faith is exactly what you need. The angels can help to buoy your faith and help you dig deep and remind you of the truth of your being. You are a powerful, creative force of love! Now get creating!

It’s going to be a wild and fabulous ride!

Clear, Connect, Create

Clear, Connect, Create

What a blessing it is to be alive right now and experience the beautiful unfolding of a new time and age. The path may have felt challenging to get to this point, but one worth the while nonetheless. If you look back at some of your greatest challenges over the last year, I encourage you to look at what was gained, as many of you were forced into changes that served you in blessed ways. The upcoming energies are here to serve us as well, and what is important to remember is that we are more than our physical experiences. As things continue to bubble to the surface may you remember that in a spiritual sense, we are birthing a new reality.

Here are some things you can expect …

  • The opportunity to open up to outstanding change, more than we have ever seen before
  • A greater sense of relief
  • A feeling of expansion and growth
  • A more comfortable relationship with abundance and the call to allow yourself to receive
  • A feeling of release, unloading and surrender
  • More energy. As if, what has previously been draining you has lost its power.
  • A stronger connection to your intuitive self

This sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? But what do you need to do to honor what is being offered up? Here is what you can focus on:

  • Hold sacred space for yourself. Commit to doing this for you, before you hold it for others.
  • Connect with your spiritual helpers frequently. Let them guide your way.
  • Observe yourself. How are you feeling? What do you need?
  • Reflect. Take the time to process things instead of just moving on.
  • Make the time to turn your dreams into goals. Then take action.
  • Focus on your desires, not your fears.
  • Connect with and engage with the things you are for and do not put tremendous focus on the things you feel you are against.
  • Remember that you are a being of divine light.

I hold the intention that you feel connected to the path before you and that you travel it with great strength, clarity, ease and grace. May you say yes to the many opportunities that show up for you. Especially the ones that push you outside of your comfort zone.

Because oftentimes the path is easier to navigate with some sound help and guidance, I am offering a special new service to help you gain clarity and make the most out of these energetic shifts we are experiencing. This new 60-minute session is called Clear, Connect, Create!

woman connecting to spirit_heather Hildebrand

It will include:

  • Guidance for the first three months of the year
  • What each month’s goals and focus should be specifically
  • Which angels and spiritual helpers you should be working with each month
  • An energetic tune-up to clear anything that may have been holding you back

The goal of these sessions is to empower you and as always, my goal is to be of love and service to you.
These sessions are available to book through February 16, 2021, but spaces are limited.

Grab your spot today if you are interested!

May you embrace the rest of 2020 with grace, gratitude and a heart full of hope and walk into 2021 with a plan, purpose and your spiritual team by your side!

I Get Knocked Down… But I Get Up Again!

I Get Knocked Down… But I Get Up Again!

A few weeks ago, I was sitting at my desk in my home office when another one of those kicks to the gut came. Man, it hurt. My energy was immediately zapped. Although my heart knew that I just had to stay focused and keep moving forward my head was ready to shut down. My body could feel it too. So, I did what I always do in a situation like that and I started talking to my angels. I started telling them that I was so grateful that in the midst of the many, many challenges my family had faced this year I was grateful for the countless ways we had been taken care of. I told them that I was really struggling and although I trusted that everything would work out fine yet once again, I was really worn down and just needed to vent and talk it through. In true angel style, they listened, gave advice and even acknowledged my pain. They said they were proud of me and encouraged me to keep going.

Then, they played a song in my head. “I get knocked down, but I get up again. You are never gonna keep me down!” I had to laugh. My angels always have a sense of humor and although crying has always been a great release for me, they always seem to know when laughter will be the better medicine.

I won’t say I immediately felt better, but the sting began to wear off. 

I share this with you because I know that some of you have experienced so many personal trials of your own alongside the already unpredictable and stressful year of 2020.

Of course, I had to google the song. The band is called Chumbawamba, and the song is titled Tubthumper.

If you find yourself struggling through a challenging day maybe you will remember this email, this song and remember that you too can get up again and keep going. Of course, you never have to do it alone. Your angels are right by your side, ready and willing to help. Remember, the tough moments don’t last forever and hopefully, they make us appreciate the peaceful moments all the more.

We’ve got this! We just need to remember who we are and who all is on our side.

Big Hugs and Majestic High Fives,

Heather 

Looking to connect to loved ones?
