When I come across a powerful tool for managing emotions, thoughts or energy, I just have to share it. So here's your latest tip, courtesy of my friend Adam.
Scenario: you have a situation that is really troubling to you, but there's nothing you can do about it. Maybe you're stewing in it, making yourself more and more upset about it. Maybe you're even lashing out at others with that anger, or spending endless hours talking about the situation.
Solution: Put it on the Back Burner!
Those of us who cook, and I use that term loosely so that I might be included, are familiar with the standard stove, which has 4 burners, 2 in front and 2 in back. When you're actively managing a project, you keep it in front for easy access and usefulness. If a project is less active, not requiring your constant attention, you put it on the back burner.
The same holds for our focus. If there's nothing you can do to change a situation, rather than keeping it in the active space of your mind or heart, to be worked over and looked at again and again, put it in that non-active space where it's been attended to and can simmer peacefully without your careful watch. Heck, turn the burner off altogether!
Some of us can intuitively do this once we have the context. Others will be able to more fully create this experience by picturing a stove and actively moving the issue in question from its position at the front of the stove to the back of the stove.
As you move your issue to the back burner, intend to work with in no longer until new information or circumstances arise that need your attention. Intend to clear the space in your active mind, in your front burner, for issues that need your active awareness.
Have you used a back burner? I'd love to hear your experiences in the comments!
If you follow astrological happenings at all, you know we're in the midst of a major planetary upgrade. And if you don't, this article can shed some light on it. While we often tend to romanticize ascension-related events, they can actually bring up all sorts of sediment for us to deal with, like water in a lake that gets shaken up, bringing up the dirt for all to see.
Times of turmoil may seem like a step back, but in truth they're an accelerator on our path to wholeness. Only by seeing our issues can we give them the attention they need to be resolved. So each time an issue arises, try expressing gratitude to it for showing itself. Then look for its gifts.
While processing the many mirrors that have been held up to me lately, I revisited the Pain Body, an aspect of our shadow selves first introduced to me by Ekhart Tolle in The Power of Now (a great book). The pain body is just what it sounds like, an energetic/emotional mass that holds our pain, both individual and collective.
I revisited the pain body with the intention of sitting with whatever pain was in my system and transmuting it. But I discovered a new feature to the pain body. Air bubbles.
Air bubbles in the pain body are visual representations of places in our lives where we've been denying love to ourself or others, places where we've resisted the full expression of a high frequency emotion. All of us have resisted feeling our emotions at some point, and generally we do this for reasons of self-preservation. What's unique about entrapping loving emotions is that on its surface love is not frightening, rather the implications of loving in a particular context lead us to shut down the instinct to share our love.
Bubbles in the pain body appear to my clairvoyant eye as clear air bubbles in the midst of a dense dark fog. That makes them the exact opposite of a typical emotional block in one's energy body, which appears as a dark, dense object in the midst of a clear, radiant space.
As an energy worker, I focus my efforts on clearing those dense blocks where energy has ceased to flow, and inviting trapped emotions to be felt and released so the energy can flow freely again. With air bubbles in the pain body, the process is similar, but it effects a liberation of a love frequency that can be released into one's being, lightening the pain body and raising the vibration of the energy body.
The yin yang is a perfect representation of this facet of our emotional experience. Not only can darkness be trapped in the light, but light can also be trapped in the darkness. However, dark is not synonymous with bad. "Dark" energy blocks at their core are desires to receive love that were not realized. Light energy bubbles are desires to give love that were not granted.
By finding and liberating all of our captive emotions, we free up our energy for our higher purpose, that of being a light to others, to this planet, and to all of creation.
A new day has risen, and with it a new crop of leaders, teachers and healers.
These mystics may have no "formal" training to show for their abilities, but they've been preparing for many lifetimes.
With the ascension of the earth, marked by the slow eclipse of the sukkot blood moon that brought us into a moment of harvesting divine love, we have moved into a new era.
Are you a new shaman? Ask yourself - have I been called to heal myself or others? Do I seek out a new or higher way of living? Am I a maverick, often alone? Does the idea of the status quo continuing make me uneasy?
New shamans have undergone rites of passage that are often inseparable from their personal lives. Many have used sex, drugs and music to access altered states of consciousness. For others, illness, personal trial and masking themselves to accentuate the truth behind the reality that others accept at face value.
The new shaman is always trying to get deeper, closer to the truth. Searching out a new sobriety, a truer one. S/he feels enlivened by nature. Emboldened by finding like hearts. Communes with other dimensions with or without conscious knowledge of it.
The new shaman has forged connections with others of like mind around the globe. A loner, refusing to take on society's dictated path to freedom, s/he found refuge in budding spiritual communities.
The new shaman is obsessed with self actualization, and has undergone countless hours of examining, accounting, cleansing, purging, activating and attuning. The ground has been laid, and now the new shaman's day has come. You are ready.
The new shaman is led by his or her higher self. You may even have noticed it's become an integral, inseparable part of you. Listen to the voice of your soul. You will not be led astray.
What is happening with the new shamans

I'm so excited to share my latest interview, with Lauren Galey of Healing Conversations.
Listen and be guided through a process to identify and release blocks to poverty consciousness, and receive a channeled transmission of healing energy.
You can listen here or at http://www.acoustichealth.com/HCs7miriamkatz.htm
I'd love to hear about your experiences with these processes!
An Archangel Alliance is a contract between two souls who agree to channel the qualities of an Archangel to each other at predesignated points in one's lifetime.
The Archangels are divine embodiments of qualities that bolster our human experience, like grace, courage, beauty and strength. In an Archangel Alliance, two or more individuals serve as vessels through whom such divine qualities flow to each other. The members of this alliance have forged an agreement to channel the Archangel that is the most beneficial and needed to the other.
The human channels in an Archangel Alliance provide a temporary or steady supply of divine love energy to bolster the other in his/her journey. Archangel Alliances are forged between like-minded individuals who feel estranged by society and often are deeply challenged by their life path. For this reason, many Indigos and Lightworkers are members of Archangel Alliances.
An alliance is a contract of equals, meaning that both members receive strength from the other through the designated Archangel being channeled. The alliance deeply strengthens the bond between the two parties, which is often platonic. It is transformative and transformational. The feelings induced through an Archangel Alliance are like touching God through each other.
An Archangel Alliance raises the vibration of both parties, enabling them to rise up to the frequency of love that is transmitted through them. Because of its powerful and healing nature, these interactions can be addictive to their members. Yet the relationship isn’t dominated by these channeling interactions. They may ramp up during times when one or both members need healing, and pull away when such resources are not needed.
Through an Archangel Alliance, it is much easier for us to recognize the face of the divine in another. We can see the totality of the person – their flaws, character limitations etc. and still love them as an aspect of divine because those flaws are understood in their perfection as elements of learning and experience that are necessary to that person and those with whom they are in relationship.
An Archangel Alliance is an opportunity to pierce the veil of humanness, to see another simultaneously as beautifully limited in their humanness and perfect in eternity, as the divine sees us.
The specific Archangels who are channeled through the alliance are focused on the needs of its members. Someone who is feeling like an outcast might draw upon the strength of Archangel Gabriel, whereas one who is struggling to appreciate their inner beauty might draw upon Archangel Jophiel.
Identifying an Archangel Alliance
These easy steps can help you determine if you are in an Archangel Alliance.
Once you’ve confirmed that you’re in an Archangel Alliance, you may feel more drawn to the other person in your alliance. You may want to shout this truth to the rooftops.
Don’t worry, though, if the other person rejects the idea outright. Today, not everyone is aware or open to believing about the range of ways that we are guided and assisted by the angelic realm. Know that you are blessed, and find ways to share news of this new discovery to those who are open to it. Explore the knowledge that has come through you and to you, as it is full of some very powerful gifts.
Are you a member of an Archangel Alliance? How is that relationship uniquely supporting you?

Lots of kids have nightmares.
So many that we often think of it as a normal part of growing up.
But kids are closer to the spirit world than most adults, having just come into their growing bodies.
As kids perceive spirits, spirits often draw closer.
For some, this is a comforting experience. For some it's unsettling or worse.
Jenny approached me to explore whether energy healing could help her little one sleep better.
Upon scanning her child's energy, I found several spirit attachments that were causing nighttime wakings and extreme fears.
After an energy clearing, her child's fears subsided and the family was able to enjoy peaceful nights.
We've worked together on a maintenance plan to protect the child's energy from future attacks and unwelcome visitors.
More on this amazing yet incredibly common scenario in Jenny's words:
"We had been dealing with what we thought were extreme night terrors/fears with our 3.5 year old. Terrors we chalked up to "kids will be kids" since we had no other way to explain the fear that come with bedtime. Nighttime was a constant battle of not wanting to go to sleep due to "monsters" and then we would have frequent night wake-ups due to "scary/bad dreams."
We had no idea how to help the situation because none of what we were reading (the child will outgrow, keep a nightlight on, etc) worked for this child.
Once we started working with Miriam we saw an immediate change. She worked with us to rid the child of attachments and past life contracts, and to reclaim lost parts of herself. She also provided us with tools that we can use at bedtime to create a protective sleep environment and ideas around how to keep the child's energy whole during the day.
We saw a clear change in attitude around going to sleep and staying asleep and now when we have a night were we hear about "monsters" we contact Miriam who goes out of her way to ensure she is providing help to the child right away.
This has been a dramatic transformation in our family. We feel so blessed that Miriam entered our life!"
Are you curious whether energy work can address your issues or those of your children? Contact me via email to find out.
I love serving people. I love my work.
I've finally found a job that recharges me, that my heart loves. I'm incredibly blessed.
And the people whose lives I touch are recharged by our work as well.
So I'm excited to be stepping up my reach and bringing my talents to a larger audience.
And it's my philosophy to leave gifts in my wake. So check out my latest appearance on 6th Sense And Beyond and receive a free energy clearing during the episode!
Some of us are in touch with our inner guidance system. It often comes in the form of bodily symptoms that contain encoded messages, like butterflies in your stomach or goosebumps.
But what if you want to get an answer about something important, quickly? It might be the cause of an illness, advice on a major decision, or guidance on how to get unstuck at work or in a relationship.
Your higher self is readily available and has access to all the wisdom you want.
Once you master higher self communication, you can also reach out to others' higher selves to resolve a conflict or get insight on an interpersonal issue. As a healer, I often ask my clients' higher selves to share the cause of a symptom or to approve a particular healing process before I use it.
Once you start using this tool, you have direct access to the wisest part of yourself and others. It's well worth the effort to familiarize yourself with it.
Please share your favorite tools, tips and experiences for higher self communication in the comments!
