Spiritual Literacy - Starting with the Energy of Autumn

Spiritual Literacy - Starting with the Energy of Autumn

It’s a new season on the Empowered Spirit Show. 

A big thank you to all that filled out the survey and offered me your thoughts, likes, favorites and suggestions for upcoming episodes. I really appreciate your comments! It helps me to know how to serve this community in a bigger and better way.   

I’m taking your suggestions and using them in this new season. We are going to be talking about Spiritual Literacy and all of the many ways you can read the signs written in your life that offer you guidance and direction. 

Some might say that it is a gift from Spirit to do this. And, some might say it’s a gift you can train.

What do you think?

We know of financial literacy as being able to understand and read about finances, reading literacy as learning to read, writing literacy as learning to write. 

Literacy is all the many aspects that go into creating these tools and practices. It’s the competence and knowledge in a specified area. 

So, spiritual literacy can be seen as the knowledge of what spirituality is combined with the knowledge to be able to read and understand the signs and connections that you encounter on a daily basis.

Spiritual Literacy will offer you the opportunity to find those sacred moments about your day.

Spiritual literacy is about recognizing that life is sacred. It’s about your everyday encounter and the signs that point to the active presence of Spirit in the world around you. 

As Frederic and Mary Ann Burssat state in their book, Spiritual Literacy is the ability to read the signs written in the texts of your own experience. Whether viewed as a gift from God or a skill to be cultivated, this facility enables you to discern and decipher a world full of meaning.

It’s about educating yourself to the many tools and techniques that spirituality has to offer. This is what I will be talking about in this new series: tools, techniques, sacred space, cosmic energy, consciousness and how to recognize the signs and connections in your life. 

In today’s episode:

4:33 - I start out with looking at the transition of seasons, the elements and how this can affect your own energy.

 Knowing more about how to transition from summer into autumn will help you to align with the present moment and become more aware of the energy around you.

6:30 - Teachings of the Medicine - Direction of the West 

9:45 - Crystals for this season

10:45 - Meditation - Drop off the old energy of summer and fully open up to all the energies that autumn can offer you.

21:30 - Wisdom of the Oracles - Higher Power. This card invites you to go into that deeper connection of your soul and express the energy you discover though that connection. It reminds you that you are a spiritual being in a physical body and more than that person working to get ahead in life.  Let you higher power lead you as you recognize the signs that will guide you in your life.

Yep, that’s a great reminder of discovering your own spiritual literacy!

To your Spirit,

Terri

Spiritual Literacy - Pausing to Notice the Signs of Autumn (Meditation)

Welcome back to another episode on the Empowered Spirit Show!

We are now into the new season of…autumn…fall.  

It’s a time to honor and incorporate shifts from the year into your life.  As the sun sets earlier and earlier, it shows you that it’s time for you to settle in too as you pull your energy within.  

It’s time to build upon the gratitude in your life.   

We just went through a beautiful harvest full moon, which I talked about Sunday on my Energy Focus for the Week. You can tune into on Sundays on FB in my Empowered Spirit Circle and/or Instagram. I offer information about the cosmos, how it affects your energy, how you can align your energies, and we look at the cards for guidance for the week. I’ll even pick a card for you.

With so much stress in the world, finding tools and techniques to relax and be aware of your energy is so important. If you are inspired to seek some help or guidance, reach out. Download my free guide to help you set up your own Spiritual Practice. You can find it on my website TerriAnnHeiman.com…5 Simple Steps to Setting up your Spirit Practice. Or if you would prefer some private help, join me in my Empowered Spirit Program. 

Schedule an Empowered Spirit Discovery Session with me and let’s discover what’s draining you of your energy and the #1 thing you can do to empower and trust your inner guidance.

I am actually offering an Autumn Energy Renewal package - energy sessions and self care tools - which you can find on NaturalForcesStudio.com under the service tab.

Autumn… or is it called fall?

What’s the difference?

"Autumn" has only one meaning: the season that comes between summer and winter. "Fall" is the common American term for the same season. But the word also has dozens of other meanings unrelated to the seasons, both as a noun and a verb.

Interesting, right?

So if you want to focus and be clear… It’s autumn. No mistake for this energy and what it is about.

One of the things I have noticed in digging into the topic of Spiritual Literacy is that the more focused and uncluttered you are in the mind, the better you can be at recognizing signs from Spirit.

When you slow down and pull your energy in, you are better able to receive the messages that are there for you.

When your mind is cluttered or the thoughts are all over the place, it is hard to distinguish your inner guidance.

Conscious intent and being focused is very important in all spiritual undertakings for very specific energetic reasons. 

Like in partnerships, it is necessary for both partners to have a conscious alignment at the levels of the astral and mental bodies. 

In relationships, shared dreams, aspirations and spiritual beliefs provide the container for love shared between you. Without this energetic container, you have no fuel with which to create a shared future, and you cannot create a shared store of vitality in the form of loving energies that will help your relationship to grow and flower over time.

For human beings, the practice of reading the signs and understanding the visions you receive is the engine of co-creation, the fuel for manifestation of harmony and balance in the world. It isn’t about trying too hard, but rather being in this spiritual flow of life.

 One of the ways that you can be in that spiritual flow of life is to align with the season.

•   18:70 - The Good Tarot.

Without this literacy of your spiritual nature, stress, anxiety, overwhelm and even depression can set in. You can feel isolated, alone and far away from the connection to your spirit.

Can you look around your life right now and find signs to help you know what you can let go of?

If you are inspired to create a spiritual practice to help you gain more knowledge about your spiritual path, feel free to reach out! 

To your Spirit,

Terri

Spiritual Literacy - Opening the Third Eye (Meditation)

Spiritual Literacy - Opening the Third Eye (Meditation)

We are now full force into the season of autumn. The weather is starting to change with a little back and forth pattern.

This light is different. Have you noticed?

 What is the season offering you?

Are you feeling and noticing the signs around you?

The energy is shifting into the last quarter cycle of the moon.

 You’ve had some chyron activity pulling on the wounded parts of you.

 And, in this month of October you will see some shifts with the planet of Love, Venus.

I talk about all of this on my Energy Focus for the Week, which you can tune into on Sundays on Facebook and Instagram.  

I offer you information about the cosmos, how it affects your energy, and I even help you to align your focus, energetically. We also look at the cards for guidance for the week.  

Lately, I’ve been asking you to bring your questions to the Livestream and I will pick a card for that question. Join me. If you aren't in FB group Empowered Sprit Circle, I would love to invite you in.  

I’ve been asking lots of questions in the group like, What does "intuition" mean to you?

Do you meditate? How do you define "sacred space"? What was the first crystal or stone that you acquired? How do you find peace in the middle of your workday when you need it?  All of which lead me to the main question, I’m talking about in this series…
What does Spiritual Literacy mean to you?  What builds the literacy for spirituality in everyday life?

With so much stress in the world, finding tools and techniques to rest, to pause, and be aware of your energy is so important. If you are in need of help or guidance or feel inspired to learn more about your own spiritual practice, reach out.

Right now, I am offering an Autumn Energy Renewal package: Energy sessions and Self Care tools. Find it on my website.

In today’s episode we look at some of the responses I am getting to these questions.

The main response I’ve been getting on Spiritual Literacy is about acquiring knowledge and understand of spirituality.

Some people add in that it has to do with reading a lot of spiritual books.

Some say it is journaling.

Some say it’s understanding your life on a deeper level.

And I say, yes. It’s all those things together.  

Spiritual Literacy is spiritual knowledge.

It is about reading spiritual books, and it’s authors.

It is about journaling about your life.

It’s about being able to read the signs when they show up.

And it’s about you understanding these signs in your life for development and growth of your soul’s path.

Spiritual Literacy will offer you the opportunity to find those sacred moments moving through your day.

It’s about discovering that life is sacred.

When you can recognize moments in your everyday encounters, you will notice the active presence of Spirit in the world around you.

Spiritual Literacy is also about educating yourself to the many tools and techniques that spirituality has to offer.

Today we are going to start with one of the tools… your INTUITION.

 Intuition is key. It’s an innate ability we all have.  You can choose to focus on it and grow it to help you with your own literacy of your Spirit.

3:33 - What is Spiritual Literacy mean to people?

5:33 - What is the the Third Eye?

5:40 - What does the pineal gland have to do with the Third Eye Center?

8:10 - Meditation - Opening the Third Eye

How Can A Daily Routine Help You to Build the Spiritual Literacy in your Life?

How Can A Daily Routine Help You to Build the Spiritual Literacy in your Life?

Welcome back to the Empowered Spirit Show! 

Save the Date: Saturday, November 3rd - Developing Intuition as A Decision Making Too

The light is shifting…Have you noticed?

 We just went through a new moon and we have lots of Venus retrograde activity. Maybe you feel some of that goddess energy rising in you? The power of the Divine Feminine is what the new moon in this new month will be magnifying.  

 Lots of beautiful rays of light are coming in. Venus is about beauty, art, and love, so allow it to be a nurturing time for you!   

You may still be feeling some of the wounded energy that is arising and coming forward.  It is definitely a time to recalibrate the feminine and masculine selves within you.

All of this I talk about on my Energy Focus for the Week, which you can tune into on Sundays on Facebook and Instagram.  I offer information about the cosmos, discuss how it affects your energy and we align our focus, energetically, together. We look at the cards for guidance for the week and you can bring your questions! Join me. If you aren't in our Facebook community, the Empowered Sprit Circle, I would love to invite you in.  Click here.  

 

The main topic I’ve been exploring recently is Spiritual Literacy. 

 What does that mean to you?

What can it help you with and what happens without it?  

What builds the literacy for spirituality in everyday life?

With so much stress in the world, finding tools and techniques to rest, to pause and be aware of your energy is so important. If you are in need of help or guidance, or feel inspired to learn more about your own spiritual practice, reach out.

Right now, I’ve still got my Autumn Energy Renewal package: energy sessions and self care tools. It’s a good time to jump back into a deep practice for you. Do a deep dive into the Oracles, your intuition or Akashic Records and EFT work.  You can find out more on my website NaturalForcesStudio.com.


The topic for your episode today goes a little deeper into asking more questions about Spiritual Literacy.

I’m bringing on a guest, Tina Conroy, The Intuitive Woman to talk about this topic and how her work fits into this concept.  

Tina shares that since childhood, she has known that she was connected to something greater. At an early age she realized that she had inherited her psychic grandmother’s gift of prophetic dreams, visions that were always vivid, full of sensory detail and eventually real. Since then, she has spent over 20 years attuning her mind and body to truly listen to that internal voice that can predict or advise and is inspired by a greater power.

Presently, she helps others to strengthen their inner voice by improving mental and physical health to synchronize the mind-body connection. As an intuitive energy healer and medium, she host The Intuitive Woman Podcast, a weekly podcast that explores intuition. She’s a yoga instructor and Reiki Master Teacher at The Center for Wellness and Integrative Medicine in Roslyn, NY. 

Tina works with women to develop their intuition, connect with their inner guidance and create a passionate, spiritual life.
