There is nothing that I love more than feeling activated and inspired — it’s such an incredibly resonant frequency, isn’t it?
And with the energy of Spring feeling vibrant and alive, this is a great time to tune your inner dial to the inspiration station and allow more energy to move through you and out into the world.
If you’re looking to anchor some big visions into reality, then you likely already know, this requires moving a lot of energy.
More than ever, we need our tribe to be willing to clear old, self-limiting beliefs and show up to create with purpose, so we can help shift things for the better on the planet right now.
I wholeheartedly believe that when we align with this frequency of inspiration, we directly connect ourselves to divine intelligence, pure love and universal consciousness, and in doing so, we’re helping to heal the planet.
Tapping Into Flow
There’s a lot of talk these days about tapping into flow states and I consider this to be the foundation so you can more easily drop into flow and create with so much more ease and alignment.
Here are two ways you can more easily tap into flow :
- Clear and open your channel: Your channel is the energetic equivalent to the volume of space from the base of your spine all the way up and out the top of your head. Many different ancient traditions talk about this channel: in Sanskrit it’s called Sushumna, it’s also known as the channel where we can raise our kundalini energy, chi or Prana. This is the energetic channel that inspiration flows through you, and keeping it clear and open is how you can help activate it. By talking about it, we consciously start to bring this channel of energy within us into our perceptual field of awareness so we can start paying more attention to it.
- Consciously raise your vibrational frequency: When you open your channel and keep it clear, you can learn how to consciously raise your vibrational frequency. And if you think about it, inspiration resonates at such a high frequency right? (Just think about how you feel when you’re feeling inspired, in the flow and on fire, versus the feeling of being stuck, down or depressed…) So by raising your frequency, you’re like “biohacking” inspiration and can more easily align with this channel that feels so incredibly good and more effectively anchor your inner visions into reality.
In this video I talk about my daily morning routine that activates my inspiration, that also includes micro-dosing with sacred plant medicines. Or if you prefer, keep reading.
Inspiration Activation: My Morning Routine
Embodying solid daily practices is how I consciously nurture this vessel of creation I have the honor and pleasure of inhabiting. It’s how I clear any blockages that are impeding the flow of energy so I can tap into the channel of inspiration.
Here’s what my morning routine looks like before I direct my energy into creating. I’m sharing this to give you ideas and to inspire you to connect with your own practices that will help you clear your channel and raise your frequency. . Like my mom says “Take the best and leave the rest” — align with what resonates for you!
- Visioning: When I’m coming out of my dream space and slowly emerging into waking consciousness, I hold an inner vision of what I’m calling in and then align with the vibrational frequency of that particular vision through my feeling energy body. What does it feel like in my body to be living that vision right now?
- Microdosing: I get out of bed, make a cup of tea and then I microdose vine juice (banisteriopsis caapi which is the ayahuasca vine). Sacred plant medicines help encourage lateral thinking; this is creative thinking “outside of the box”. I’ve worked with other forms of micro-dosing but I personally find that the ayahuasca vine is the most effective for the specific purpose of opening and clearing my channel and raising my frequency. Sacred plant medicines have helped me to tune my awareness to the true nature of reality: that everything is energy, frequency and vibration and has allowed me you to come to know this channel I’m talking about more experientially. I only recommend micro-dosing within the framework of grounded, daily mindfulness practices.
- Movement: High intensity workout with super epic inspirational music. Working out or going for a hike or a run gets those endorphins going and does something amazing to the flow of energy in the body. My favorite workouts are a combination of cardio, weights, dance, yoga flow and plyometrics (squats, lunges, etc…), and of course, epic music. Do whatever feels good to you.
- Breathwork: our breath is an amazing technology that we can learn to utilize more effectively. Did you know that DMT has the highest concentration in our lungs? Yes breathing can be psychedelic! Stan Grof’s Holotropic breathwork is a great option, and I also love the Wim Hof breathing method. After I do this, I feel a serious amount of Chi flowing through my body.
- Cold shower: This is also from Wim Hof. Feel free to look him up and check out his information around over-riding your autonomic nervous system — it’s been a huge game changer for me.
- Visionary meditation: By the time I’ve done my workout, breathing exercises and cold shower, the vine is more fully present within me and yearns to align with a more meditative state. This is where the real inner work and channel clearing happens. I do specific visionary meditation practices that I teach at my AYA Visionary retreats, where I drop into and align with my center. This is where I’m most connected to and aligned with the flow of energy and inspiration, and it’s also where I have the most perspective and clearest intuition to make the best decisions for my life.
- Set the intention: I close my morning practice by connecting with my heart center through gratitude and I channel whatever prayer (or intention) wants to come through me. An example might be: “May my path today be clear and open and any obstacles be transmuted into stepping stones of opportunity, so that I can be of the greatest service and fully enjoy this process of creating from my heart.”
