Welcome to the wonderful world of the 8 vibration...

and the 2015 overview part 2

The 8 vibration blows open the door to infinite potential...

if you approach the vibration from a higher state of being. (as you may notice, when the 8 is on its side it forms an infinity symbol... no coincidence there my dears!)

Which means allowing Spirit to guide!


Surrendering to your higher power, higher-self, spirit.

Yeah. I know.

Kinda scary to let go of the controls!

Yet absolutely essential to mastering the 8 vibration's manifesting magic.

As I wrote about in Part 1, 2015 heralds the 8 vibration of material mastery with spiritual guidance.

The 8 vibration is often referred to as the Fame & Fortune number.

It resonates with Abundance, Prospertity, Power, Recognition, Success, Leadedrship, Organizing, Problem-solving, Creating Systems, and Material Mastery.

Its shadow is ego and control and lack of discernment when it comes to dealing with others.

8 = heaven & earthThe tango of the 8 vibration is between following ego and listening to spirit…

Uniting Heaven and Earth,

as the symbol of the 8 vibration tells us

(the top circle of the 8 represents heaven, the bottom circle represents earth).


Throughout 2015, we will be confronting our money issues, ego issues, and power issues... wherever we are out of alignment with these elements... or in denial.

It is time to throw open the bolted inner doors and acknowledge (or finally face) your fears around money, power, ego vs. spirit,  and being your beautiful self.

My guides tell me that the two major Chakras being activated in 2015 are the Root chakra and the Crown chakra.

Which makes sense when you think about the themes for the year.

Our connection with our core and our security along with our connection to source and our higher guidance.

I invite you to do some energy work in clearing all your chakras and pay special attention to the root and crown.

You might want to work with some stones to help you with this. And enlist the aid of a trusted energy worker if you feel so called.

These are all things that I do as well to help me deal with the energetic vibrations at play... as well as regular tune-ups!

Unleashing Your Infinite Potential

So... are you ready to really dig into the dark, into the feelings and emotions and beliefs and bust loose from the shackles you've placed on yourself consciously or unconsciously?

If so, here are very potent and powerful questions to ask yourself, ponder about, live in and live with this year... and please, if you are so inclined, Journal about these too!

Have discussions with a trusted friend, teacher or therapist.

If you are willing to truthfully answer these questions, shit will shift.

I've put the power questions in the major categories or themes for the year. You might want to print this list out and then dig in...

Money and Material Things

What are your beliefs and thoughts around money and wealth?

What do you think about money and the people who have money?

What does luxury mean to you?

How are you handling your money?

Do you have a spending plan?

Do you live paycheck to paycheck? If so, why do you think you do this?

Are you comfortable with having money?

Do you appreciate money?

Do you desire money?

Do you deserve to have money, wealth, comfort?

Where are you embracing the energy of money and material things?

Where are you rejecting the energy of money and material things?

Where are you judging material things a somehow less than the spiritual elements of life?

Where or when do you feel financially insecure?

Do you believe that resources are limited or limitless?

Do you have abundance or a lack mindset? Where did this come from?

How much would you like to make this year? What ideas might higher guidance have for you to make this possible?


Recognition and Appreciation

Are you appreciated?

Do you appreciate others?

Do you appreciate yourself and what you do?

Do you appreciate what you have?

Do you focus on what you don’t have rather than acknowledge and appreciate what you do have?

Do you focus on what you haven’t accomplished or completed rather than acknowledge what you have done?

Do you reward yourself in any way for your accomplishments?

Do you punish yourself for not finishing or doing things? (punishment can include beating yourself up and being unkind to yourself even if it is in your thoughts and words)

Where are you being recognized and acknowledged for your work/contribution?

Where are you not being recognized and acknowledged for your work/contribution?

Do you give yourself credit for all that you do?

Do you take credit for things that aren’t yours?

Do you let others take credit for your contributions?



Do you feel powerful or powerless? Why?

Where are you giving your power away? Why?

When and how do you give your power away? Why?

Who do you give your power away to? Why?

Where do you have strong boundaries?

Where do you have weak or no boundaries?

What are you afraid of?

Do you have a fear of succeeding or failing?

Do you believe you deserve to have what you want?

Are you trying to control things?

What are you trying to control?

Where does your ego get in the way?

Where do you let spirit guide you?

What can  you do to allow your ego and spirit to work together?

What would you like to succeed at?

What would you like to be known for?

What kind of legacy would you like to leave? What steps do you need to take to get there?


Other Areas

What problems are you facing that are really an opportunity in disguise if you are willing to delve into it without fear?

What systems can you put in place?

How can you better organize yourself, home, work, office, etc.?

What kind of life do you want to live? Describe it… where do you live, what do you do, explore this in detail.

What do you need to do differently to create the life you want?

What do you have to believe to create the life you want?

Bottom Line

The key to material mastery of the 8 vibration is to come from spirit and higher guidance rather than ego.

You can do it! I believe in you!

And remember to be GENTLE with yourself... ok!
