Energy Life....what???

This is something I wrote and felt like sharing.....

Hi there, for those of you who don't know,  I am Tammy Murray-Cousins, Energy Life Coach, sometimes I feel as if I would be just as clear saying; Tammy Murray-Cousins blah blah blah.  

The truth is a lot of energy went into my title. I chose to steer clear of things like Spiritual Coach or plain Life Coach. I wanted definition but no limits.  I now find that many do not understand what I do.  Today I am here to explain.

Some will refer to me as a Lightworker.  This term was recently made popular by … well I really don’t know as the term is new to me over the last year or so.  Anyway a Lightworker is defined as a person who has a strong desire to spread light and is usually a term used for healers and spiritual people.  Well that is the definition to the best of my ability, I don’t love titles.  

I prefer Energy worker, but that often implies that I work for the electric company, as I was told at a networking group one day.  

Simply put.  I can feel and understand the energies of our subtle bodies and have many tools to teach you to change the way your subtle energies are working.  I have known how to do this my whole life. I have been able to assess energies since I was small.  I should note, I have not always heeded my own inner guidance but do now and it is apparent in how I am living my life.  

My other titles are just that titles, they are symbols that my mind can understand and that I have collected along the way, however they were just to assist me in believing in my own gifts.  The way of Reiki master/teacher was presented to me and I took it, however not all I do by way of creating space for healing is of a Reiki nature.  This also applies to the work I do with assisting in changing thought patterns and neural pathways.   

These are also things I have known and understood for a very long time but my mind made me wait until I had certificates and degrees in various studies.  

What happens in coaching sessions with me is we will focus on a goal of yours.  These goals are unlimited; they could be sobriety, a positive attitude, relaxation, self awareness, relationship assistance or finding a job.  The goals you can work towards are endless.  We will talk and I will provide you with tools to use to reach your desired outcome.  

In some cases I will pull out my specialty tools, such as Reiki or Human Design to assist in clarifying your goals or removing blocks that hinder you.  

I will create a safe place for you to do the work you wish to do, for as long as you need me to.  My goal is to assist you to be able to provide that space for yourself. 

I also do any types of card readings and can assist you to connect with your guides and angels if you wish to do so. I also teach classes in which you can learn how to read your own cards and those of others. 

As I write this maybe Energy Teacher would have been a better title, but again that implies that you would be the only one learning and that is not the case.  Sessions with me are interactive and you will often times leave with a homework assignment of some kind, anything from writing about the life you would choose if there were no obstacles to going home and sitting on your lawn for 3 minutes a day.  

What is important to understand is I am here for you, to assist you to reaching your goals and desires.

Bright Blessings!

Is anyone else rapping 'colors, c c c colors" ? or is it just me?
I realized I have not blogged in a long time.  I blame it on the fact that I was enjoying my summer with the kids.  First time I was able to spend that much time with them since having them.  It was awesome! 
Over the last few days, I have been getting questions from clients and friends asking how they can shift their energies and make their mind load a little lighter.  I have also been asked by many, what I do to stay in the state I am in or they one to perceive I am in [more on that in another post :) ] . I decided since I was trying to think of what to blog about, this would be it! Colors!
I always find myself heading to the same responses when asked these types of questions. 
First in order to change your reality you have to change your mind, but I admit at times without someone chatting with you and pushing you through, it is hard to change your mind yourself.  Heck I still resist my coaches and I know they are right. 
If I doubt me and try to change my own mind, an instant internal battle begins.  Until I reach out, resist the help and later settle, with what I knew was right in the first place, but are now open to listen, a little.  Big circle or what can feel like nuttiness.  These circles although they seem endless are never without movement forward though.  [Check in with your own and see if you can see a spot where you grew].  
With all this in mind an easy solution and one I always give to my Reiki clients is color. 
Colors can assist in so many areas.  Colors have their own vibrations and meaning and can instantly change your mood or assist in strengthening and/or cleansing a chakra thus changing your mood.  They can even give a room whatever energy you need it to have. 
I will list a few simple fixes I use regularly when dealing with my daily ups and downs. 
When you are feeling “off” rushing around from here to there for everyone else and cannot seem to keep your own feet in the same spot for more than a minute, use brown.  I relate it to a tree trunk securely and safely planted in the earth with energy flowing in through its roots and out back to the universe through the leaves. 
If you find you are feeling out of balance emotionally, spiritually, or physically.  Use shades of purple.  Notice when you wear purple, it gives you a kind of confidence. I like to wear purple to job interviews too. 
When you feel as if you are pulling in too much from others, yellow is a great defender.  My favorite and easiest way to add yell since I do not wear much of it, is to put a yellow sticky note paper in my shirt.  Yes it is that easy! 
Green and pink are great for times when you need a little love, for yourself or for others.  Brighter pinks are great to get noticed or express a bit of yourself, like with a purse or necklace. 
Red is great when you need a little bit of power or assertiveness. Red is great and speaks volumes, even if it is just a pair of socks or the color of your cell phone. 
Blue can be used when you need a bit if assistance with speaking your truth as related to the throat chakra or when you are dealing with ideals or beliefs. 
Orange is the color for joy and creativity.  Fun. 
White is cleansing and clarity.  I do not personally wear a lot of white but I use the color daily.  I use white light for protection, comfort, and cleansing.  Picturing white light surrounding you or falling onto you can be easily done with a moment’s notice.  Try it. There is no wrong way to do it!
I hope you find these tips helpful as they are from my personal daily life bag o tricks. 

You can also use colors for healing the physical body.  Here is a list of some common uses:
Violet:. Good for mental disorders, the nervous system, baldness and female complaints.

Indigo: Use for removing fears and reassures those afraid of the dark. Good for emotional problems, deafness, and especially good for the eye.
Blue: Blue acts as an antiseptic and cooling agent. Excellent for all inflammations.  Great for cuts and burns.

Green: Green is the great healer. When in doubt, use green. Green is excellent for heart problems, neuralgic headaches, ulcers, head colds and boils.

Yellow: Bowel and intestine problems. It can act as a mild sedative to relieve many fears and give a mental uplift. It is good for treating indigestion and heartburn, constipation, also menstrual problems.

Orange: Is good for illnesses of the respiratory system such as asthma, allergies, and bronchitis.

Red: It is a warm color which invigorates, excellent when used for treatment of persons having heat diseases, anemia, blood disorders, and liver diseases.
You can wear the color, place patches on areas color on your skin, or imagine light entering those areas in those colors.  Again these are things that I try to incorporate as I can. 
I invite you all to expiriement with the colors in your closet and in your life.  Please let me know what you discover! 
Blessings to you all!
