We can see physical boundaries everywhere in life: this is my country, this is my house, this is my side of the bed, that’s my vibrator. You get the idea, but we never really talk about our spiritual boundaries, our energetic boundaries or what I like to think of as our little “cocoon”. Heck, most of us didn’t even know that this space existed, let alone that we are in control of this space. That’s where the power lies.
In this post, we are going to learn what your spiritual boundary is and how to create one. So let’s get started.
Before doing this work, I had no concept of boundaries-- heck I’m Italian, we all function and live in a giant bowl of soup. Minestrone soup. We feel, sense, and predict most people and most things that orbit around us. The only time I think anyone had a boundary in my family was if they were pissed off. Then all walls were up and no one was getting in -- or out. Until dinner time, because well, you know, then we’re all in our happy place... and who wants to waste an incredible meal in a shitty mood?!
In some ways living this way feels very fulfilling because you are never alone, but that’s not always a good thing. It was especially satisfying when everyone was hanging out, having a good time - laughing, telling jokes, playing cards, gossiping, and of course, planning our next meal.
But like the tide of life, it’s not always high. You see, the thing is, when you're all open and acting as part of one big soup, everyone feels it when one of them goes down -- when someone starts to sink to the bottom of the bowl. And that’s where things get ugly. No one likes to be pulled down from their happy place. This is when creating healthy energetic spiritual boundaries can really help your own emotional state. In fact, I find it even more powerful and fulfilling. Because you can finally start to be yourself and be in the middle of this bowl of soup. Like a nice chunk of potato or a hearty carrot. There’s no need to end up as much on the bottom. We want to be more like minestrone and less like split peas… Alright, enough with the soup metaphors!
Take a moment to watch my video here about Boundaries You Didn’t Know You Needed.. I share tips as well as my experiences in a short video. (Just in case your get tired of reading 🙂
So how do we create a spiritual boundary and maintain our autonomy?
First, you want to become familiar with our own energy.
So sit down, focus on your breath and take your time here.
Relax and release any tension in and around your body. Meditating is best for this so you can become familiar with your own frequency. You need to recognize normal when you feel it so you can hang on to it. Notice any sensation around you. If your eyes are closed you may see a frequency, or feel a tingling. Now take a quick scan to see if anyone’s energy is in your field.
Start from the bottoms of your feet moving along your spine checking in with each chakra.
Now, if you notice other people's energy in there, you want to purge that.
I’ll check in with my Root chakra which is at the base of my spine between my legs. As I bring my consciousness into this space I look around to see what pops up, again no judgement and don’t worry about if this is real or just my imagination. Let’s say I get a vision of my neighbour between my legs (Wait, that was my dream last night) They're not supposed to be there! To purge this energy, I can imagine that she, or he, is the color grey and visualize this grey color leaving my energetic field.
Now, I repeat this process with all my chakras.
Once I’m clear, once I start to feel a little lighter and brighter… I bring in more of my own energy.
Again I do this by imagining white light coming in through the top of my head until I feel full and bright. I imagine my aura, my cocoon, as a beautiful golden container. Now, I create an item just outside of my field so I can visualize where my energy ends and someone else's begins…
I like to think of it as a boundary instead of protection because believing I need protection makes me feel like I should be worried about people intentionally trying to hurt me. When I create a strong boundary, I can do it without the fear. I find it’s better than “protection”.
So how did that process feel?
Knowing these boundaries allows you to keep unwanted energies at an arm’s length.
It’s the energy equivalent of saying, “no” which is so hard for some of us to do. When you establish this spiritual boundary it allows you to not get sucked up in gossip, or a friend’s judgey side, or even when the world around you feels very negative. This awareness of your boundary allows you to keep this out and let you have a more fulfilling life experience.
These are just some tips I use to start to activate my spiritual boundaries, but if you want a guided meditation and worksheet to help you to purge old energy, you can find that information on my website and remember all of these are free to anyone with a mystical membership. IF you are not a member, and you should be, there are still free ones for you to try so please check it out.
I hope these tips can start to help you feel safe and cozy in your own energy cocoon.
Remember you are not your thoughts, your emotions, or your body. You are light!
Until next time,
I’m Marisa Grieco, Your mystical guide.
Do you ever feel like your brain is so full that you're about to explode? As if the simplest things seem to feel like they are moving farther and farther away from you? You're not going crazy -- okay maybe a little - but aren’t we all? This feeling, this sense of bewilderment, just might be your Earth Star Chakra. It could be clogged. Stay with me and in this post, I’m gonna show you how to clear, connect and reactivate this chakra.
I don't know about you, but recently I found myself walking into rooms and forgetting why I even went in there. Or I put my phone down or my keys somewhere, and suddenly, I can't figure out where I put them. I start to feel overwhelmed. My emotions, anxieties, my frustrations all start bubbling up. And I even have physical sensations. My knees and hips are sore, I’m bumping into things. I know, it sounds like a combination of ADD, old age, and day drinking. But it’s not. I discovered that my earth star chakra was blocked. And when I cleared it, a lot of this went away.
If any of this resonates with you, it might be that your earth star chakra is disconnected, blocked, or just simply underused. Let me share what I did to connect and activate this earth star chakra -- as soon as I find where I put my coffee.
First, what the hell is the Earth Star Chakra and why might I just be hearing about this for the first time? Well, it's probably because you're ready!
The earth star chakra is actually not located in your physical body but around 6 to 12 inches below your feet, in the etheric realm (the first or lowest layer in the "human energy field" or aura. It is said to be in immediate contact with the physical body, to sustain it and connect it with "higher" bodies).
The Earth Star chakra helps you to ground your entire chakra system and your energetic light bodies into the planet. I know! Who knew?
Activating this chakra creates the strongest foundation for you to properly lift and connect with your higher self and the higher dimensions. It is so powerful that it has its own magnetic force that pulls down these higher frequencies into your light body. As you expand energetically and surrender your old ways of being, whether that's an old belief, an old program, or simply other people's energy you will become brighter. The brighter you become, the more in sync you become with the natural heartbeat of the Earth, and the faster you will manifest your dreams. So start to get clear on your intentions and release your old baggage, cause it doesn’t serve you anymore. Baby things are gonna speed up- energy, vibration, and frequency determine everything.
Take a moment to watch my video here about Unblock your Earth Star Chakra. I share tips as well as my experiences in a short video. (Just in case your get tired of reading 🙂
Now as you start having more energy and light coming into your physical body things are gonna start to shift. You're getting an upgrade! Your DNA, your bones, cells, and even your nervous system. That's why this takes some time, you are adjusting. You're becoming one with your light body. How fun is that? It's all starting to make sense now.
Not too fast though, you may experience some side effects.
Nothing to worry about, but just be aware of what's going on. Of course, if you're having serious health issues go see your doctor.
Some of the things that I experienced were tingling and twitching in the legs, especially at night- super fun for my husband. It can help to have a weighted blanket...(cause you're finally getting the energy moving..Yay) Then I experienced either hot flashes or getting super cold almost like having a 24-hour flu. But I was just releasing old programs that came up. I also became more aware of belief patterns that weren’t exactly mine but were passed down from my ancestors. I’m mean I know they meant well, but...c'mon!
The cool thing is, you no longer have to be trapped in this loop de loop. You can heal and clear this dense energy. It’s just not good for you anymore. Trust that if it's loving and important it will come back.
I know, exciting, huh?
So how do we balance our earth star chakra? Well, it’s pretty simple, actually- through intention, movement, and meditation.
An easy thing to start with is to just get outside! Set the intention that you would like to connect with the earth star chakra. It's that easy. Take 4 deep breaths and bring your focus to the bottoms of your feet. Feel each foot as its energy expands down into the earth star. Like the roots of a tree. Connecting to a beach ball. Feel the energy and deepen your connection. You are starting to awaken a new energetic point in your field.
Try Yoga or qigong. I like the Mountain Pose. It's simple and easy - just stand with both feet planted firmly on the ground. Lift from the top of your head and ground through your feet; firm up your thighs, spread your toes gently and press your shoulders back. Stand like this for about 30 seconds to a minute. Feel or imagine your energy connecting to the Earth Star chakra.
You could also get a foot massage. Just ask your kids, or husband, or if all else fails, your neighbor. LOL
Sit quietly and visualize your column of light coming down from the cosmos through your higher chakras going down into the top of your head, through the center of your body, and out the base of your spine to the earthstar chakra. Imagine your earth star chakra becoming brighter and brighter as you bring energy and light to this center. Then allow the column of light to go through each layer of the earth until it reaches the iron core. Notice how this new connection has anchored your entire energy system into the earth. Now that you're plugged in, feel how much more light you can hold in and around your body. Pretty amazing isn't it?
Listening to 68.05Hz sounds.
This is the Earth Star chakra's frequency. By playing music on this frequency you can stimulate its growth and activation. I like to use a headset.
Before we jump in, I know a lot of us like our crystals as well. I listed a few that may help you to connect and visualize your earth star chakra. Here are just a few examples- Obsidian, black tourmaline, Jet, Amber, Clear quartz, Aqua quartz, and the Merkaba star crystal. But again, do what resonates for you.
I hope this helped you get a little more grounded. If you would like to take this process a step deeper, you can download the corresponding worksheets and a guided meditation. They are all available for immediate download on my website.

Welcome back everybody, I’m so happy you're here. Today we are going to talk about the Heart Chakra, aka the love machine. The Bridge between our two worlds. We're going to learn how to unlock this bridge and remove the troll that has kept our spiritual knowledge and our physical needs separate. In this post, I‘m going to share tips and tricks that helped me to override my past programming and get this energy moving. Let's get started.
Have you ever tried to hug a porcupine? No, of course not. Imagine that's what it's like when your heart chakra is closed- you want love, you want affection, but you just can’t seem to give it to yourself or others because something keeps getting in the way. You may start to feel harsh and judgmental. And forgiveness is definitely not an option. I’ve built up these beliefs that make sure I stay closed, I stay protected. Nothing is getting in and unfortunately, that means that nothing is able to get out either. At first, I felt okay with this agreement. But once the dust started to settle, I felt trapped and alone, turning me into a lonely porcupine (and not the cute little baby kind).
Today, that ends. I’m picking up my mystical hammer and together we are bringing down the old programs and those beliefs so we can reconnect to this incredible frequency that this center has to offer us!!! Because we deserve it! Now, where's that hammer?
Take a moment to watch my video here about Tips to Help Unblock Your Heart Chakra. I share tips as well as my experiences in a short video. (Just in case your get tired of reading 🙂
So what is the heart chakra?
The heart chakra is your fourth energy center that is located in your chest. It is associated with the color green, which represents transformation, love and healing. The color is just a reflection of the vibration of this center.
When the heart chakra is open and in alignment you will feel supported by love, compassion and joy. You're going to have a connection to the world around you. Your relationships are healthy and strong, and you won’t have a hard time receiving.
Now for me this center had a lot of red tape. I had a lot of programs of what love, relationships and receiving were about and what they were supposed to look like; and being open was not one of them.
That’s why I would like to focus on this center just being your bridge. Connecting you to the physical world with all its power and the spiritual with all of its gifts and knowledge. This helped me to override all the symptoms of a blocked heart chakra.
What are the symptoms of a blocked heart chakra?
So, what are the signs of a blocked heart chakra? And how do you go about unblocking it?
Even though this center is all about love and forgiveness, I was like...forget about it. Nothing is getting into this center. If you're feeling guarded like me, have high expectations of others or feel lonely, you might have a blocked heart chakra. If you find that you hold a grudge for a long time, or if jealousy takes you over, guess what, you might have a blocked heart chakra. If you are constantly dwelling on past relationships and events or depend on others for fulfillment...you guessed it! You might have a blocked heart chakra. Wait a minute, this is starting to kind of sound like my autobiography...lol!
Well if any of this resonates with you, you're not a jerk. You just have a blocked heart chakra. And we're gonna open it up... Or at least try to...just a little.
Soulution (not a typo...see what I did there?!)
I’m going to share with you what I did to open up this center.
I found at first when I had to look at the list of people I had to forgive or the amount of programs I had to go through, I thought this is going to take years! I was scared shitless of opening up this landmine. I didn’t know what was going to set me off, and the thought of opening up this center was scary for me.
Start with this simple meditation, where I treat my heart chakra as a bridge.
This helped me to get the energy moving.
Close your eyes.
Visualize the top of your head opening up and a column of light coming in through traveling all the way through your heart space (your bridge). The column of light keeps traveling down, past your bridge, all the way out through your root chakra, out your legs, all the way into the center of the earth.
Visualize the light anchoring in this space.
Now visualize energy (which I see as liquid gold), coming up from the center of the earth, coming up along that column of light. Have it stop at your heart center (aka bridge) and visualize the liquid gold mixing with the bright white light.
Allow this mixture to clean and clear out all those old programs.
Release them and watch them float away.
Visualize them going out the front and out the back of your body. Keep releasing these old programs and watching them float away.
Think of this space as high energy where cosmic energy (high frequency) and earth energy meet.
Feel this flow of energy move through you from your head to your toes.
Reclaim this space.
I like to do this either during my morning meditation or before bed. I feel like this gets my energy moving.
When you’re living in that body, within that limited space, you’re in that third dimension and the third dimension is the physical. Right? The logical mind, the emotional and the physical body. Now there’s nothing wrong with that, but if you’re not connected to that higher frequency coming in, you’re missing out on where you get your creative impulses, that feeling of oneness.
Even when we think we’re falling in love with somebody else, really what we’re doing is opening up that valve and giving ourselves permission to feel that flow of energy. Forget about everyone else. This isn’t about anyone but you.
Opening up this center unlocks your mystical gifts, happiness, and healthy relationships. But again, the first healthy relationship is with YOU! You have boundaries and you are containing that love, so it doesn’t matter if that person walks in that you don’t like, or if I don’t care what someone else is doing, it doesn’t affect how I feel.
The second thing you’re going to find interesting is when you start to live this way, those people aren’t going to bother you anymore, because you’re actually going to see them with more compassion and more love since you’re not letting their energy affect yours.
Don’t be hard on yourself at the beginning. This is a process. We’re constantly working on opening up this chakra. So take your time and enjoy the journey.
One other simple tip I will tell you, and I have my kids do this every night before bed. Think of three people you love. Think of three people that love you. And think of three things you saw throughout your day that made you happy. And the cool thing about this exercise is that if after a while you run out of things that are beautiful or you forget who else loves you, your mind will start to automatically answer these for you. Throughout your day you will realize, oh yeah, I love that person, I’ll put them on my list tonight. And it’s funny how then we are able to give love a little more freely. We don’t have to say, “hold up, I’m not sure I am ready to put you on that love list yet.” But instead it becomes reflections of ourselves and other people. It’s okay to love and to have this feeling flowing.
I hope some of this resonated with you. Again, I want you to know that you are not alone. We’re all going through this process together. We all have emotions, we all have problems and we all have blocks. And that’s okay.
If you have any tips, exercises or rituals that you do to help you unlock this heart chakra, let me know in the comments or better yet, come join my tribe over in the Mystical Circle where we can dive in deeper together!

Is your living space a friggin’ mess? Can you sense the pile of laundry, even though you’re downstairs? Wait! I’m not going to tell you to go upstairs and tackle all those chores right now. That's what maids are for. I mean, that’s whatkids are for. But I will start by saying maintaining a clean, fresh, living space will help your Clairsentience to flourish. Join me in this blog post as we’re going to learn what it means to be clairsentient and how to activate it.
Clairsentient. What does it mean? Well it actually means: “Clear Feeling”. And it’s not some wooji wooji thing about a spooky paranormal power, in fact it's a natural and divine ability that lives within all of us.
You already use your five senses- smell, taste, hearing, touch, and sight. They help you process your physical world but your 6th sense helps you understand how energy plays in this realm. And we know everything is energy, so it makes sense that we have the ability to feel this. We hear people talking about gut feelings or sensing something is not right…this is clairsentience.
In my modeling days, I was always traveling to a new country with new customs, most of which I didn’t know. And I would rely on my clairsentience to keep me safe. I can remember times where I was so exhausted and lost (this was way before smart phones and google), I had to rely on folded foreign maps, and foreign bus schedules. It wasn’t always taxis and limousines. But I was very grateful when it was.
I remember one time in Germany. I was walking to my last modeling audition and I was tired. It was cloudy, wet, and not many people were out on the streets. All of a sudden I got a creepy feeling in my gut. I looked around and saw a car driving slowly next to me. I thought, “fuck!! this guy is following me”. Instead of waiting around to see if I was right, I changed directions immediately. I ran in the opposite way. His car picked up speed, but couldn't turn around fast enough on the tiny road. That’s when I turned around again and headed to my appointment. I was grateful then to trust this Clair -- this ability or superpower as I like to call it. Internally I thanked myself, and my guides for protecting me. So much of the time, we hear ourselves say, “I knew that was going to happen”. But I didn't listen. That's gonna change now! We are going to start to learn to trust and listen to this gut feeling.
As children we loved bathing ourselves in energy as we played, but our modern adult world forces us to report our human experience using only our five senses. We are taught to shut these feelings down. And when these powers completely escape some individuals, they are usually the first people to make fun of any mention of using these innate, dormant abilities.
To me, it’s not normal to live this way, to shut ourselves off from our natural abilities and cut ourselves off from the knowledge of the universe. It’s kinda dumb, if you ask me.
Now, in some of my YouTube videos we discussed the sacral chakra and your second energetic light layer in your auric field. The cool thing is that they are key to unlocking clairsentience. This clair is connected to these energetic realms. That’s why you feel the information in your lower gut, and it comes up as feelings. You’ve heard it all before, “I’ve got a bad feeling about this”, or “that guy has a really cool vibe”. That’s because your sacral chakra is picking up information from the energy around you. It does it all the time, you simply picked that moment to become aware of it.
Now the same is true when you just want to chill and close down this energy center. I either visualize it closing like a flower, or I will put my hand in front of my energy center and close my hand making a fist and shut them down.
Visualization is an amazing tool.
This way, you are always in control. So, if you find yourself in a crowded space, and you're starting to feel overwhelmed, lower the volume in this energy center in order to find some comfort. It’s that simple.
Another way you can recognize the power of being clairsentient is goosebumps. Or truth bumps, as I like to call it. No Laughing!
This always happens when someone tells me a story and by the end, my arms look like a chicken that has been plucked. The energy is so present that my body lets me know that everything is in alignment. Have you ever experienced that?
What’s interesting about Clairsentience, and something that actually surprised me at first, was that this Clair can connect you to your deceased loved ones. I wonder if that’s why I sometimes get goosebumps, or chills, when I enter a room. Even when it's not cold! To me, it’s just an entity or energy on the other side just saying, “hello, I’m here!”
To identify this clair within you, start by focusing on the emotions that spring up when you encounter someone new. Or when you walk into a new space. Pay attention to what your gut is telling you. Understand that it’s actually your innate ability to read the energy around you. If you’ve been working on your sacral chakra, you may find this information coming to you more freely or even stronger.
Also, I always feel sick or nauseated after I’ve been around negative people, or if I’ve been hanging out in a crappy environment with low frequency. If this is you, know that you're not crazy. It's your Clair! It’s talking to you, warning you, telling you to run!!! This is how your body processes this energy in order to communicate with you.
Take a moment to watch my video here about Reconnecting to your Core Store. I share tips as well as my experiences in a short video. (Just in case your get tired of reading 🙂
Nowadays, I can often just scan my body to see where I’m picking up information. It usually starts in my gut. Next, I may ask myself what's going on? What are you trying to tell me? Then I will take a look around and see what triggered it. It may be a person, or the room, even an object. I register the message, but the important thing is to release the energy right afterwards. Especially if there is any pain or low emotions attached to it, that's the new piece to this puzzle. Don’t hold the emotions in your body. Not even for a minute.
Understand, we can pick up these negative energies even when we read or watch the news. We pick up the emotions and then carry them. Let that shit go. If you find it difficult to let go, then you can see that your body is addicted to this frequency and is constantly looking to be fed. That’s why you keep attracting the same stories, the same people and the same places…
Ok back on track...
What do you do if your Clairsentience ability is on overdrive and you just need a break?
I’ll experience this if I’m around a person going through a really hard time, or if I’m going to a crowded party and I don’t want to pick up on everyone's emotional crap. Remember: You're always in control of your own energy centers.
Here’s a Tip:
Sit comfortably on a chair with your feet firmly on the ground.
Focus on your breath, slowing your energy down.
Place your hand in front of your sacral chakra, which is just below your belly button.
With your palm facing towards your body, simply close your hand. Giving yourself a visual of your chakra closing down. You can imagine an opened flower in front of your sacral energy center and then command the flower to close down. You are simply choosing to shut down this information temporarily. When you're ready you can re-open it.
So remember, those gut feelings, those goosebumps you’ve been experiencing, that’s your physical body processing your ability to read the energy of things you encounter. Don’t ignore it. Learn to trust this clair. You might need her one day.

I had a problem. No matter where I turned, I was always giving my energy away. Do you do that? Support everyone around you, emotionally and energetically? Feeling and blessing them constantly, only to feel neglected and looked down upon when you engage with them?
Here I was, uplifting them so they could feel amazing, only to be treated as someone less valuable than them. I was all give and no take. So stick with me in this post. We are going to focus on bringing back your incredible light energy and stop playing small in your life.
I am a strong believer that giving is more important than receiving. I tell my kids to be generous and it will come back ten-fold, but it gets to a point where you have nothing left for yourself. And when there is nothing left for yourself, bad things are going to happen. To everyone.
I felt this shift. Something was feeling off to me. I knew that I had given others more energy than they knew what to do with. But instead of being humble and grateful, the energy had turned them into feeling as though they were better than everyone else around them, including me. This is not always their fault, and I have yet to really break this down to understand the interaction of our energies, but I'm working on it.
As I reflected on this I realized that there was a pattern here. Once I had given away all my energy, all my light, there was nothing left for me. I began to feel as though my own life was lacking. I was sluggish and not fulfilling my own dreams. Instead, I was feeding the people around me with no thought of myself.
Now, I’m not saying you shouldn't support your friends and family. Doing so is a wonderful thing and I believe it is a must; but when you take your foot off your own gas pedal to fuel another ego — well, that always backfires. You see it all the time in relationships- one person sets out on the journey to fulfill their dreams and the other partner supports them through the entire process, only to be discarded at the end.
Once I realized that I was just giving away my life force, (and you will know you're doing this because it’s like a punch to the gut) I knew I had to pull my energy back in and give myself a little “me time”. Not that kind of me time, but that doesn’t hurt either. 😉
So first, I cried. Then I cried some more. Then I cried because I felt angry at myself. Then I was sad again. And then mad again that I had allowed myself to be fed on like a plate of pasta at a carb festival. Then I cried again.
And this was only the first 3 minutes.
Take a moment to watch my video here about Reconnecting to your Core Store. I share tips as well as my experiences in a short video. (Just in case your get tired of reading 🙂
Once I let these emotions wash through me, unabashedly, without holding them or without identifying with them, I knew I had to take a dose of my own medicine- all the tips and tools that I share right here with you amazing people, my tribe!
First, I knew I had to be alone. My inner-critic and my vicious inner bodyguards were out. They were ready to fight, argue, and attack anyone that was in my way. My husband could feel my entourage of protectors ready to launch a fight. I could hear his balls shriveling up from across the room. He knows to stay away from me when this side of me is out.
So I took my dog for a walk to get some alone time and some space. And fortunately for me, I can do so in nature.
As I walked, I began to command all of my energy that I had left with other people, in other places to come back to ME.
After stopping for the dog to sniff every patch of new grass it walked on, I chanted in my head, “Bring all my energy back to me clean and clear. Bring all my energy back to me clean and clear.”
I kept saying this under my breath. And I said it with all my passion of being angry and feeling used. Slowly, I started to shift those emotions into passion, into strength, into power. Then feeling and imagining my energy flowing to me effortlessly filling every part of my being up. I’m no longer playing small. If you can’t handle the light, then go play in another room. This was a great way to focus my intention. And as you can see intention is key to everything we do, people.
Again, I commanded, “bring all my energy back to me clean and clear.”
After about 20 minutes of this, I started to feel a little better. I started to feel my energy return to me. I wanted to do more for myself. I had my headphones in so I could listen to a meditation, but instead, the universe brought me a video by Sadhguru. It was called, “How Not to Let Ugly Situations Mess You Up.” You can watch it HERE.
I love this guy. I love listening to people that just resonate with me. I can feel that his intentions are good and so are his messages. As I listened to his video, I was instantly reminded that it doesn’t matter what happens to you, or what other people say. What matters is how you choose to react.
I reminded myself that I was not a victim, instead, I was simply playing that old program again. You know, the one that says, “don’t be too bright, don’t show that you know too much, play small, and just be quiet and let someone else do it, or you're going to get in trouble.” That program is bullshit to me!
You cannot be successful and give away all your energy. I’m not talking about giving away love, I’m not talking about caring too much, I’m talking about your personal energetic sacrifice that you are making because you're running a subconscious program that says, “if you are too powerful, if you are number one, no one will love you. You will be alone and discarded.”
And again... that’s bullshit.
So, as his video continued, I continued to bring my light back to me -- filling myself back up every step of my walk. Well at least in between bending over and picking up my dog’s shit. But reminding myself to be in the moment with all my fucking senses.
By the time I finished doing this, I felt whole again. I continued to walk with ease and in the spirit of self-care. I reminded myself of all the things I preach here: I am not my emotions. I am not this body. I am light having a fucking human experience.
Truth be told, I wasn’t ready to jump in and be one hundred percent grateful yet, even after all of this. It was more like I had shifted into neutral. Although my face looked like Rocky Balboa fighting his last match because I was so puffy from crying earlier. Or I was stung by a bee, I can’t remember. It doesn’t matter, at least I wasn’t carrying around all those toxic feelings anymore.
When I got home, I was fortunate that I was greeted by my smiling daughter whom I was able to give a big hug. I no longer carried those negative emotions from before and I was able to receive her love freely and openly.
Now, here is the magic part. While I was walking I booked two clients, and then another two while making myself a cup of coffee when I got home. How cool is that? Just by bringing back my energy and not pushing away my feelings, but purging them instead, it actually brought me success. A small success, but still a good success. Imagine what more I can do!
Listen, we’re all in this together, playing and trying to figure shit out. But if I can give you one piece of advice from all this, don't play small for other people. Don't dim your light to make others feel comfortable. Because when you're breathing your last breath, no one cares or can see that you sacrificed your light for nothing. Being small, or invisible, doesn’t get you a ribbon in the end.
Live your life to the fullest. Live as an example. Choose to be happy. Choose to be you. Make your own experiences. Don’t be a virtual lighthouse for other people to siphon off of your soul.
I hope this gives you the permission you need to bring your energy back to you so you can shine like a mother f@#$er. Because trust me, it feels good! With that, know that you will find a tribe that will match your new frequency, and hopefully, that tribe is with us.

Are you tired of everyone telling you who you should be? What you should think? What you should eat? Even what you should wear? Well, that’s probably because you’re still living at home. Just kidding!
But if any of these statements resonate with you, you're probably disconnected from your Core Star, or better known as your inner light.
In the blog, we’ll learn about the Core Star and its connection to your entire energy consciousness system (hint, it’s actually the foundation of your whole energy system). I’ll also share some tips and rituals that I did to reconnect with this amazing light.
I started blocking off my connection to the Core Star as a child. If you’ve watched all my videos, you’re probably thinking, “boy she had a rough childhood”. Not really, but I do want to show you how easy it is to create a program when we're kids. Cause we all do it!
Now it’s time to clean up our mess...
I had an accident when I was very young that caused me to lose my hearing in my right ear. My hearing loss didn’t really affect me until I started school.
My teacher would be addressing the classroom and I would miss gaps of what she was saying. Not knowing any better, I would just try to read her lips; but soon it caught up with me. My teacher would ask a simple question, but because I didn’t hear her fully, I would answer with something entirely off-topic. Every time I did this, the class would start laughing at me. That is when I began to shut down.
I didn't want to be called on. I didn't want to be there. I didn’t want to be seen, so I flew away from my body. I fell down a black hole by creating a belief program that it was not safe to share my voice. I felt stupid, not good enough, and even unlovable.
Physically, my muscles would tense up and I would have to hold back tears. This was the beginning of repressing my emotions into my unconscious. I built those walls up, and created a new belief system.
This made it much harder to reach my Core Star. My inner light was now walled off and I didn’t even realize it. Great way to start my teen years, huh?
The more I tried to protect this part of myself, the more disconnected and alone I felt. This is what I believe was the beginning of my depression.
It wasn’t until I started taking down these walls very slowly and carefully that I started to feel like myself again.
That's what I want to share with you.
Let's start right at the beginning-- The Core Star is the source of our unique essence, our divine spark, our soul, if you will. It’s like a snowflake! Each one is different and magical in its own way, just like you.
According to Barbara Brennan, the Core Star is the foundation for the Structure of the Human Energy Consciousness system. That’s a mouthful but how cool is that!
To give you an idea of how all of this works, your consciousness system has four aspects: it consists of the Core Star, the Hara foundation, your energy field (aura), and last but not least, the physical body.
Each one of these has its own space and dimension and they all function completely differently, but still complement each other. It’s like we’re a human cake. With all our layers, flavors, and colors. Separate, but still blended nicely together.
For now, we're going to focus on the Core Star.
It's in this space of the Core Star that your creative and intuitive energy originates. When this energy is flowing, you feel healthy, happy, and connected to everything and everyone. You are light!
The Core Star is a wonderful space to seed your manifestations as well. You may find yourself inspired to jump in and start doing all the creative things that you’ve always wanted to but never seem to make the time for. You may find yourself painting (watch out Picasso!), drawing, or writing a book.
Take a moment to watch my video here about Reconnecting to your Core Store. I share tips as well as my experiences in a short video. (Just in case your get tired of reading 🙂
Ideas feel like they are just flowing through you. When your Core Star is glowing bright, you’ll finally begin to feel comfortable in your human suit, your Avatar!
Finally, you will be free to express yourself, because you’re no longer looking outside for validation. You're free from judgments, free from other people's opinions, free from feeling like you have to be perfect. It’s in this inner space, that you are the center of the universe.
The wonderful thing about your Core Star is that it cannot be diminished by negative experiences. You may have created walls and blocks around your Core Star to make you feel safe and avoid any painful memories, but underneath all that, it is still a vibrant star-- untouched by the third-dimensional world.
When we block our Core Star, we can start to feel depressed, unworthy, and even uncreative. Your energy becomes sluggish or heavy. This is why you can start to feel sick. Nothing is moving. It’s like a pond that lost its flow of water. It’s stagnant.
Or if you find that you're overeating, taking drugs, and drinking alcohol excessively, (although this just sounds like this past year during the pandemic...kidding) these are just ways to cope with the pain. We’re not feeling safe enough to be ourselves.
Take a walk outside in nature (or your own backyard is fine too). Find a space where you feel safe and won’t be disturbed. Put away your electronics and just look around. Activate your five senses -smell, taste, touch, sight, sound.
Pick up a flower and study the structure of it. What do you see? Let your eyes answer.
What can you smell? Allow your nose to explore.
What can you hear? Birds, water, traffic?
What can you taste?
What can you sense? Can you feel the vibration of the trees, plants, grass?
Just notice what comes up for you. Explore everything. Allow yourself to be affected emotionally.
Playing with animals is another wonderful tool to get your Core Star shining.
Whether it’s hanging out with your pets or going to a farm, a rescue facility. Whatever you have access to.
Sometimes it can feel easier to express your feelings and love with an animal. Allow this warmth to grow and expand in your energy field.
Listen to your favorite music, and let loose! Dance, sing, have fun. I can close my eyes and automatically be transported to a dance floor in my favorite club.
Whether you're writing, drawing, painting, whatever. Pick your medium.
Do something creative to get you out of your head. Just allow it to flow.
To help me, sometimes I just turn on my favorite music, get out my paints and do abstract work. If I felt angry I would express it in my paintings. This was a lot of fun!! A big mess at times, but still fun. If my inner critic came out, I would just let that part of me paint! There is no perfection, it's just your expression. Hey, that kinda rhymes!
Another key tool is to get involved or do something for someone else.
Get the focus off yourself. It can be something spontaneous and kind. Try excluding the word “I” as much as you can.
You can call a friend, neighbor, or organization that needs your help. Try to objectively do this. It can be a wonderful way to jump-start your Core Star. (Remember you don’t have to sign up for something that is going to deplete you, instead try something that brings a smile to your face).
This one is inspired by Eric Morris.
If you're feeling super trapped and overwhelmed, this exercise may help you. You are going to need to clear a big space for yourself in a room. Remove any jewelry, glasses, watches and any object that can hurt you. If you can lay down on a soft surface like a carpet I would recommend that.
With this exercise it kind of looks like a kid having a tantrum in a toy aisle when he is told you won’t buy him his favorite action figure.
You want to hurl yourself into a ball and then have a physical fit- kicking, and flailing your body in every direction, if you can, scream and howl let loose.
If you're worried about neighbors or someone hearing you, scream into a pillow.
The exercise should go on until you experience a large emotional explosion. We're getting rid of tension and all that crap that no longer serves you.
Be kind to yourself afterwards. It’s all part of the process. We’re peeling away the layers.
When your Core Star essence is free to flow you may start to sense that everything around you becomes in sync. Your feelings are positive and your intentions feel good. You will also release issues that you have avoided facing, sometimes for your whole life. They will come to the foreground of your life to be experienced and healed. You’re clearing away the old programs and rebooting your authentic self!
Now that you're starting to feel more connected to your Core Star, you will begin to create the things you have always wanted.
You're no longer looking outwards to learn about yourself but instead, you are going inwards.
You are a shiny bright star!!! Remember, you are not your body, your emotions or your programs. You are light!!!
Until next time,

We've heard the expression a hundred times, "If you want to feel good, if you want change in your life, you can't bring your old baggage with you." Well, that’s what I want to talk about in this blog. I will share my experience about a childhood event and how it clogged my energetic light field. And how I found a way to start feeling safe and loving in my own body once again.
When I was about 11 or 12 years old, my girlfriend invited me to her birthday party.
I was so excited. This was my first time going to a party with other kids! I did my hair, wore my new fluorescent blue jersey dress. (It was the 80s.) I still remember putting on my earrings. I felt good.
I went over all the matriarch rules in my head:
I didn't pay much attention to them. I heard them a billion times. I was simply going over to my girlfriend's house. What could go wrong?
I strutted out of my house with confidence since my leg warmers were hiding my furry little legs. I had my chin held high with my newly bleached mustache. My feminine energy was out full blast for the very first time. I walked in feeling good. If this were a movie, we would just be finishing the montage part.
The layout of my friend's house was a carbon copy of my grandparents' house. It was like being in the matrix. As usual, the adults were all downstairs laughing and talking, and all the kids were on the main floor watching tv. What else would we be doing? It was just another friend from school and me with the rest of her family.
Just a good old-fashioned neighborhood birthday party.
After a bit, my school friend went downstairs to get something to eat. I watched the show when two of the older boys stood in front of the only door to the room. The next thing I know, the tv gets turned off. I'm keeping cool. I remind myself that all the parents are downstairs. I'm not in one of those dark alleys my Nonna always worried about. I'm not doing anything weird or wrong. I'm just sitting here. But I can start to sense darkness in the room. My spidey senses begin to tingle. (Yes, I even had them back then.) I stand and walk towards the door casually when one of the boys shoves me back on the couch. He looks straight in the eye at me and says,
"Don't mind us if you get pregnant!"
(Wow, now that's some goody bag for this party. And to think, all I got my friend was a shirt and a pair of earrings for her birthday!)
I'm kidding; it’s how I deal with uncomfortable situations.
Of course, the truth was, I was in shock.
How could this be happening? I followed every rule. I did everything I was told. Yet every horror story my family warned me about was unfolding right before my eyes! And I had a starring role.
Dammit, I knew I should have taken karate!!
I thought, screw these guys. Well, not literally. I was like, what the fuck is this shit? I leaped off that couch like a caged mountain lion. I was swinging, screaming, kicking anyone that came close to me. No one was going to mess with this hairdo. My adrenaline was through the roof. What felt like an hour was probably a couple of minutes. My girlfriend's sister finally heard my screams and came into the room and broke up this mess with an announcement that it was cake time.
Are you kidding me!!
What the fuck?!
Your family just tried to rape me in your living room, like a bunch of pent-up hormonal monsters who spent too long in Sunday school -- and you're offering them dessert?! So, I'm supposed to go downstairs and celebrate as if nothing happened? I wanted to walk down there and scream, "Your children are monsters. Even if they were just kidding around, their message and intent were awful. I'm 11! "
I wish that's what I said. But I didn't. Instead, I was in shock. I obeyed. My first birthday party ever, and this happens! Now, I was fortunate that the only thing they got to touch was my hair sprayed helmet of a hairdo. But I was still traumatized by the event. I can't imagine how someone feels after they've been sexually assaulted. I simply can't imagine it. And I'm sorry if that has happened to you. I truly am.
I called my uncle right away to pick me up. My uncle always reminded me of a cross between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito. I wanted to tell him everything. I wanted to take him into the house and show those little fucks that they messed with the wrong family. I wanted him to treat them like a pinata hanging from a tree.
But If I did this, I figured two things were going to happen. Furst, ten black Cadillacs--okay, three black Cadillacs--were going to show up at this house with bats in their hand. And I'm pretty sure the people that would get arrested weren't the guys that caused this whole mess in the first place. And second, this would be the last birthday party I would attend for the rest of my life.
While I stood on the stairwell waiting, I did what any Italian girl my age would do. I gave them my first ever evil eye.
Every single one of them.
Now, I don't need to provide you with the details of what happened to them that month. Let's just say my girlfriend had a new family trauma story to tell every week. I'm not boasting that my evil eye worked because this episode isn't about how to create and manifest the perfect curse -- but that would be a good one. This is story is to show you how easy it is for a program to get trapped in your energy field. This event has affected my relationships and relationship with men and myself for my entire life.
I probably could have used a lighter example, and I apologize if I upset anyone, but it's a black and white example of how we can carry an event throughout our lives. And carry it in a manner that does not serve us.
We have hundreds of these tiny programs playing subconsciously in our energy field that were created from events in our lives.
So, it's not so much that you're filled with anxiety, or you're too sensitive, or you're crazy. It's just that something has triggered one of these hidden programs and has released the chemicals tied to that experience into your body. That’s all it is.
Before we begin, I just want to be clear: this is how I dealt with helping myself release old blocks, old beliefs, and other traumatic experiences. I'm not a doctor or a licensed therapist. I'm just sharing my process with you, hoping that it will help you feel better in your life because you know what? You deserve it! Remember that. And no schmuck or experience should rob you of a happy life.
Take a moment to watch my video here about Blocked Energetic Light Bodies and How They Affect Your Happiness. I share tips as well as my experiences in a short video. (Just in case your get tired of reading 🙂
So how does a program or a block get created in our body?
When we have a traumatic experience, we automatically try to bury the pain. It's a safety mechanism for our brains. So, we cut ourselves off from the physical body by taking our consciousness away from that experience. Next, we cut off our thoughts and emotions by tensing our muscles and repressing them into our unconscious. To keep this buried, we create all kinds of distractions to take our attention away. You may overwork, turn to food, drugs, or alcohol, or simply detach entirely and become a couch-potato.
We may even start to project and blame others for the state we're in instead of healing and releasing this pain. We believe that the only way to eliminate this pain is to block it and stop the energy flow. Unfortunately, the opposite is true. We never want to prevent energy from flowing through our bodies because when we stop the flow of energy, we cut ourselves off from the positive experiences of life. You may not even be aware that you're doing it because you've done it since childhood.
So right now, you may feel disconnected from yourself because of this block. Most likely, you've created mighty walls around your wounds. This act makes it feel impossible for you to reach your core, to reach your inner light. It also makes you feel separate from everyone and everything in your life.
When we stop the energy flow within the body, the painful experience moves into your emotional field. There, it freezes the event in time and energy. This is what we call a block in our field. This block will remain frozen and adversely affecting your life until we thaw it out – just like a piece of meat. If we don't release this energy, it can become so dense it can start to make you sick.
The emotional energetic layer is where we store our emotions about ourselves. So, when it gets contaminated by the trauma, our self-image changes. We start to feel sad, guilty, angry, shameful -- whatever feelings were tied to that experience.
So, let's get that crap out of your energetic field!
Whether it's someone else's energy, an old belief, an old program – it doesn't matter. If it doesn't make you feel expanded and feel good, it's time to reclaim your true self and get it out!
We create most of these programs in childhood. Usually, before we even know what's going on. That's why it's a good idea to re-evaluate what you want to keep and update it, or what you simply want to get rid of. This baggage is not worth keeping. It's preventing you from reaching your superpowers in the quantum field.
The First Three Energetic Light Bodies
I'm going to focus on your first three energetic light bodies and how they work. I'm going to simplify this to give you an awareness of what's going on. So, let's start with the third energetic level and work our way down from the lightest to densest of these light bodies.
If you look at this image, this is how the gradient of light in your field works. It isn't about positive or negative. It's just the amount of light that each level holds.
The Third Energetic Light Body:
This light body holds your thoughts. This is the level of self-perception. It’s basically how you think of yourself.
Now, here's an example of the thoughts that may have been created after my event:
These thoughts in my head have a frequency, and unfortunately, it's a low frequency. So, if I don't heal from the wounds of my past, every time an event triggers me, I will think those same thoughts, and my body will produce the same chemicals that were present when the traumatic event first happened.
My subconscious mind does not know the difference between what happened in my past and what is happening now to make it even worse. That's why changing your thoughts is so important. There's a chain reaction.
Change your thoughts, change your life.
The Second Energetic Light Body
The second energetic light body is the emotional layer -this level is associated with how you feel about yourself.
When you're happy and have positive programs, this layer is bright and colorful. But when you hold on to old emotions tied to old beliefs, you may feel shameful, small, weak, sad, angry, and guilty about yourself. This energy will appear dark, like lead in your energy field. This can start to make you sick because it ripples into the physical. You can see how when we move through these energetic light bodies, we become more “matter, “which is dense, and less “energy,” which is light.
So, let's act like alchemists and start to transmute that lead into gold!
The First Energetic Light Body
The first layer is the etheric energetic light body- this is the layer where you feel your pain and tension in your body.
It’s in this light body where energy gets trapped and stored. It affects your nervous system, your muscles, even your cells. So again, you can see how being in your body can start to feel uncomfortable. Even a simple touch by someone can trigger me to think of that event again, and out comes the hellcat!
Understand, my body doesn't want me to forget about it. It thinks it's trying to protect me. That's why I may complain of a stomachache, lower back pain, or headaches when these thoughts are triggered.
Once I started to see my energetic light bodies in this way, I began to identify where I was holding and storing my old programs. I did this from a space of awareness, so it became easier and easier to catch their effects when triggered without having to live through the pain attached to that story. I knew it was time to update my energetic light bodies and rewrite my blueprint.
If the pain and the emotions are extreme for you, know that you can reach out to energetic healers and counselors to help you through this process. You don't have to do it alone.
My story and my tips are meant to help you start getting the energy moving through your body and help you understand that you are not your body, emotions, or thoughts. Know that you are simply a light being having a human experience. We are just cleaning out your avatar (your physical body) to make more room for yourself—space to have and to create the life you are meant to live.
So, here are some tips that helped me. You are going to need a pen and paper and a quiet space.
Tip # 1
Let's start with the third energetic light body: your thoughts.
What are your thoughts about yourself? For example, I am... (fill in the blank).
And then write them down. Don't edit your thoughts or your writing. No one will read this. Burn it after if you want. Once you've written down these old programs, you can start to rewrite and update them.
If you want to practice and do more profound work with this energetic light body layer, I have a video called "The Key to Manifest Faster" to help you find high-frequency words to replace the old ones.
For your Emotional, Energetic Light Body.
Find a quiet, uninterrupted space. Focus on your breath and tap into your second layer of your energetic light body. It's approximately 1-3 inches around your physical body. Notice what comes up for you. Do you see images or events? Can you feel them? Notice how you connect to this field. Does it feel expanded and full? Or does it feel more like armor around you?
Now write down your triggers. What ticks you off? What gets your blood boiling? People, places, behaviors. Whatever it is, just write it down like a stream of consciousness. There are going to be emotions attached to events that you've never allowed yourself to express. Whatever comes up in your healing experience -- from laughing or crying to being angry. Just release and flow.
As you build emotional awareness, this can help you to identify the emotions that are affecting you. This way, you don't have to store them in your mind or your body anymore.
Whatever emotions that come up, know that this is wonderful. Embrace them. You are tapping in and releasing trapped energy. You're doing the work, and remember you are not your emotions; they are just part of your avatar. They're there to give you a message and move on. You don't have to be identified by them.
Once you start to release these emotions, you may want to go back to rewriting some of your thoughts about yourself from Tip #1. Now you can begin to see how these three energetic layers connect in the space of awareness.
Now take your time with this one. Sit quietly with yourself. Notice where you are holding tension in your body, and gently place your hand on that spot.
Imagine loving light flowing from above your head down into your heart through to your arms and out your hands. (Be your own healer) allow whatever emotions to come up and out. You don't have to hold on to this tension anymore. It's like releasing that trapped bird and letting it fly away. You're removing trapped old energy by doing this. Take your time and allow your physical body to receive this upgrade. You may even feel lighter afterward.
Please understand; we're just getting our feet wet here. Energetic light bodies are a vast topic to tackle. I wanted to show you a map of how you can unlock those memories that prevent you from a happy life. You can begin to release that old baggage and start to connect to the quantum field.
Why? Because the more light and love you bring into your body, your avatar, the stronger and more present you become. You're becoming less “matter’ and more “energy.” This is going to help you speed up and attract what you want.
I hope these simple exercises and tools help you to start to feel lighter and brighter in your life.
Remember, you are light having a human experience. You're not your body, your emotions, or your thoughts. I am sending you lots of love. If you want more information, I will make videos on each energetic layer to give you a deeper understanding. In the meantime, look around the website for other tools and information to help you on your journey.
Until next time, I'm Marisa Grieco, your Mystical Guide.
Have you ever caught movement out of the corner of your eye and it was so vivid that you swear you saw something? But when you looked, nothing was there? Can you see colors around a person? Are you a serious daydreamer? Well it’s not ADD, you might just be Clairvoyant! In this post, I'm going to give you some tips on how to strengthen that superpower of yours.
If you haven’t seen my introduction to the clairs video, go watch it here. You'll find that there is more than one Clair, but in this article, I want to concentrate on clairvoyance. When I first learned about this Clair, I thought, darn it, “I don’t have this superpower at all.” I used to think that clairvoyant only meant I was supposed to "see" things in the physical world -- you know like those fantasy movies where a ghost shows up and starts spewing cool messages to reluctant recipients. The truth is that only a few people can see energy and spirits that way, the majority of us don’t.
Once I understood this, and more importantly, trusted it, I realized just how much I was actually seeing! It was so much easier now to get the messages I was seeking. With some practice, my psychic superpower took off - like a witch on her broom. (Just kidding we drive sports cars now.)
So what did I do to build this connection? Here are 4 techniques I use to strengthen this psychic superpower of clairvoyance.
Take a moment to watch my video here about 4 Tips to Develop your Clairvoyant Superpower. I share tips as well as my experiences in a short video. (Just in case your get tired of reading 🙂
Number 1 - The Memory Game.
As a mom, I don’t get much alone time. My kids love to play games (as does my husband), so I incorporated my practice with their card games. Remember that memory card game we played as a kid? The game where you place all of the cards face down, then flip over one at a time, trying to make matches?
This sort of card game is an excellent game to play when you want to become more clairvoyant. As you are playing, try “seeing” each card in your mind’s eye. Take a moment, breath, concentrate, practice. Don’t be hard on yourself, you may suck in the beginning. Be kind. Rome wasn’t built in a day.
Number 2 - Playing with Light.
For this one you get to lay down (you’re welcome). Once you are comfortable, place a clear quartz crystal over your third eye chakra. Breathing deeply, imagine a crystal ball at the centre of your head. Place a candle in the centre of this ball and then light it. (Remember you’re imagining this. You’re not actually lighting a candle on your head.) Imagine this ball getting brighter and brighter with each breath. Now create a light tube traveling through your 3rd eye, front to back. Visualize another tube of white light running out the top of your head while the other end of the light tube is going through your entire body and out your root chakra. It's like you have an internal white cross pulsing through your body. Now, imagine your third eye opening up and seeing clearly. If you visualize this regularly, you’re putting energy behind your intention to open up your third eye and strengthen your superpower. And besides, you get to lay down for a second. (I keep the door locked so the kids can’t interrupt me.)
Number 3 - Balloons.
This one may seem strange at first, but the purpose is to improve your ability to clearly visualize what you want without your mind or your ego taking over all the time. In this exercise, visualize yourself holding seven balloons, each one a different color of the rainbow. Start with the red balloon and let it go. Watch it float up to the sky until the red balloon disappears, and then release the next one. Do this until all the balloons are gone. It’s not as easy as it sounds, is it? Good visualization takes practice.
Number 4 - Auras.
Practice this one on yourself. Sit in a dimly lit room and take a couple of deep breaths. Set your intention to see your own aura. It's important that you actually believe that this is something you can do. Take your index fingers and push them together. Rub them around together. Aura is “sticky” so focus on the area between fingers as you continue to gently rub them. After a bit, pull your fingers apart, just a little. Focus intently on the space between your fingers and look for a colored a colored mist, or smoke, between your fingertips. It may not happen right away. Keep practicing and make sure to set your intentions. (Watch a video of me doing this here.)
So those are four exercises I use to strengthen my clairvoyant superpower. During your journey, it’s important to release any fears you may have with this psychic superpower. If there is a frightening image from your youth, you might have turned off your clairvoyant abilities to avoid this unpleasantry. You’ll have to nurture your inner child in order to reclaim your powers. And remember, your psychic superpower is always within you. If you see, or feel something that you don’t like when exploring this realm, then tell it to leave! It has to listen to you. Think of it as a cosmic law. If I see something I don’t like, I command it to leave.
So practice, practice, practice at visualization. This is key to the superpower of clairvoyance. The more often you try, the easier it becomes, but be benevolent with yourself in the early stages. Don’t be critical of your progress. AND trust. For one week, lose the negative talk, lose the doubt, and truly embrace your power. Ask your guides to help. Ask them for signs - everywhere, and then trust the messages you are receiving.
And don’t forget to tell me all about it in the comments below. Until next time, I’m Marisa Grieco, Your Mystical Guide.

Let’s face it, some days I wake up and I just feel… off. And so I gulp down some coffee (or a mimosa – just kidding), but that doesn’t seem to help. Food’s not going to work because breakfast feels like a chore. The day hasn’t even started yet and I just want to go back to sleep. Do you feel me?
So where’s that funky feeling coming from? It’s from your energy field.
What exactly is that you may ask? Think of your energy field as the vibrations that your thoughts and actions give off in the universe. Still don't get it? Then imagine yourself as a radio station -- the perfect radio station where you can choose any song you want to play. Your brain is like that radio station. When you choose positive thoughts, it feels like you're playing the perfect song. The perfect song raises your vibration and immediately makes you feel better. When it’s good, it feels like you can't play your song loud enough. The same is true, however, when you have negative thoughts. It’s like the radio station in your head started playing the Chicken Dance song. You suddenly want to stop dancing. Your energy field is lowered and you feel like crap. It’s that simple.
Sometimes I have a critic attack before going to sleep. I wake up in the morning and my energy field picks up where I left it, trolling through the garbage of my emotions. It’s the worst song for me to be listening too and it’s way too loud. I can’t switch that dial fast enough. I start feeling cranky and frustrated and the coffee, or food, is doing nothing for me.
The good news is, you are the creator of your own life and that dial is always accessible to you. It is in your hand rolling along your fingertips. So change it. The first thing in the morning is the perfect time to find the right song and start raising your vibration. Make a commitment to yourself and meditate for 5 or10 minutes right when you get up. That always helps me. You must stop playing the old woe-is-me me song. Change it right now! You deserve it! Start playing your favorite song -- all the time. With this simple practice, you are going to start seeing a positive change in your life.

You know that saying “like attracts like?” It’s true! So if you’re a negative person, you’re going to attract more negative people. If you’re thinking negative thoughts about yourself or others you’re going to attract people that have a similar vibration.
Which means if you want to change, your gonna have to stop that. You will receive resistance from those who want to hang out and be negative, but you must.
This means I need to tell you something you probably won’t like… gossiping is bad for your energy field. I get it -- when we’re all together sharing all those juicy details; it feels kind of powerful to have all this knowledge. *cue evil laugh*
But it’s bad for us. It lowers your vibration and weakens your energy field. It’s easy to get sucked in, but you must have discipline of mind. Most of us already carry around a tidbit of negativity, so when we add the negativity of those around us, it only brings us down. With practice, you will have an even better experience, I promise you.
You’ll discuss positive things – your dreams, your passions, and your powers! It takes the same amount of effort, but in the end, you will feel empowered. Your heart will be open and you will feel the higher vibration in everything you do.
Now for all of us who may still have a hard time thinking positive thoughts about ourselves, or seem to be waking up on the wrong side of the bed more often than not, next week I’ll talk about how to clean up your energy field. And I promise, there’s no broom needed.
A few years ago, a strange incident happened to me when I was living in beautiful San Diego. I had my adorable 4-year-old, Skylar in tow and I was pregnant with my second child. We were going shopping for bedding for Sky's new "big girl" bed. At the local linen store, Sky was squeezing my hand in delight as we fussed over all the options. It was then that I felt someone watching us. I could feel it in my gut. From the corner of my eye, I spotted a couple paying very close attention to us. That little voice inside me whispered, “Something's not right.”
I continued shopping, still keeping a smile on my face, but now I had an eye and a tentacle on my little one. All of a sudden and very abruptly, the woman I had been watching asked me how far along I was in my pregnancy. It was more of a bark than a polite inquiry and all the while she was still on her phone. My instincts flared up. Fight or flight. (WTF..I think to myself). Trying not to jump to any conclusions, I flippantly remarked, “Oh, it’s my second pregnancy. Who keeps track?"
Something inside me told me her question was not authentic. But my logical mind, the one that wants me to be polite, is telling me, “It’s broad daylight - in a store - filled with people.
This is not some dark alley in a scary part of town.” Still, I tell my daughter that we are going to leave and look somewhere else for her bedding. I held her tightly in my arms, squeezing her with love and appreciation as I sprinted toward the door.
At my truck, I took a deep breath and scolded my imagination for reciting the plot for a bad after-school special in my head. I buckled Sky in and turned on some tunes to change the energy. Suddenly, as I pulled out of my parking spot, a car sped toward us flashing its lights. I slowed down and they pulled up to next to me on the driver’s side. I saw three people in the car; two males in the front and a pregnant female in the back dressed similarly to the woman in the store.
The driver of the car tells me that the front of my truck is smashed and that he can fix it for me. Well, maybe my instincts had been primed inside the store, but my spidey senses were on high alert. The man then tells me to get out of the car and look at the dent with him. This was the moment for which I am still very grateful. I did not react or try to please the man.
Instead, I listened to that voice inside my head, that superpower I like to call it, and I did not do what he wanted me to. In fact, the little voice inside me was screaming to get out of there. I didn’t care if my truck was smashed. It felt like the least of my worries at that moment. When I did not respond to his offer to fix the truck for me, the man became very upset, almost demanding that I get out of the car to look at it. I simply rolled up my window and drove away.
Now, there are a few of you reading this who might think I was overreacting, that maybe I was making assumptions about the individuals, but there is more. (There always is.) Once I was away and out on the street, I stopped at a light. I told Sky that, “I’m just gonna run out and see what the heck happened to our truck.”
There was nothing wrong with my truck. Nothing at all. I turned around to get back into the vehicle when ANOTHER car speeds toward me. This time, two undercover cops flashing their badges jump out and sprint straight at me. Each one blurts out questions about the car in the parking lot. I tell them the story, they look at each other and dart back to their car yelling, “That’s them! That’s them!”
Chills ran up and down my body followed by tears on my face. I turned and looked at my beautiful safe baby in the back seat. I’m still not exactly sure what their master plan was, but I am so grateful that I trusted both my instincts and my intuition in those moments, both in the store and the parking lot.

As you can see, instinct and intuition have always been a big part of my life. It's a very important subject for me and I'm always looking for ways to hone this power.
First I wanted to get down the basics, I know we have both instincts and intuition, but what’s the difference?
Instincts are primal. They’re what kept our caveman ancestors alive (It’s that feeling I get when my kid decides to do a cartwheel in the kitchen and I get this alarming feeling in my stomach to move my glass of wine before she knocks it over ). We gotta do, what we gotta do to survive the week!
Now, intuition is different in that it comes to us through our senses; it’s what we hear, touch, and see. You know that hinky feeling you get when you shake someone’s hand and you’re instantly creeped out? That’s your intuition talking to you. The thing about your intuition is that it tends to be a quiet whisper. It doesn’t yell or clamor for your attention like my daughter is doing at this very moment. You have to take a moment and really listen.
It doesn’t help that the foods we eat and the drinks we drink affect our intuition either. When you’ve had a big meal and a glass or three of wine, your intuition is going to be as sleepy as you are. Keep that in mind before you tackle these next steps.
...and your phone, computer, and stop thinking of your to do list that’s a mile long. Focus on the moment and try to find that little voice that’s being drowned out. In this quiet time ask yourself questions, and listen!
There’s something relaxing about the warm water that helps you push your problems away so that you can hear that little voice inside you.
I love these teas. They make teas specific for your psychic superpower. Click on the picture or click here to get your own.
Stepping away from the situation and reestablishing your connection to nature can be tremendously helpful when trying to hear your intuition.
Taking a few minutes to meditate can be really helpful so complete your favorite one or we can even do one together here .
It’s easy to say this, but can be harder to do. Instead of overthinking things or wallowing in self-doubt, embrace what your gut is telling you. You might be surprised by the results!
We all share this super power. It's that voice that guides you. Make time for it. Practice making it stronger. Some of the most successful people on the planet swear by it. Oprah Winfrey once said, "I've trusted the still, small voice of intuition my entire life."
You are in good company.
