A message that has been coming up a lot lately, both for my clients and for me, is that about aligning your energy and working on it the same way you work on the practical, logical, tangible things. Think of the energetic or vibrational wonder that happens to you when you work in your garden. You’re physically and practically doing something, taking action, to get your garden to grow. But at the same time, you’re thinking about and feeling the goodness of connection to the earth, you’re putting your energy and thought into your garden.

Your life is like that. If you don’t like your job, then you are only doing the logical part. If you’re unhappy in a relationship and you do things to help it like going to counseling, having conversations, or setting up date nights, that is only the logical part. Work on the energy part.

Look at it this way–you were given both intellect and intuition. When you use them both, you are at your best.
