I received this vision a while ago while I was venting to a friend in complete frustration. I knew I wanted to connect to spirit and receive more, yet “in actuality,” I vented, “I zig and zag to complete exhaustion!” – ah-ha. That felt big to understand.

When we are putting others first, it’s super common to find ourselves running from task to obligation, hoping to schedule some time to ourselves at some point “later” to recharge.

The longer we put off the connection by doing more tasks or obligations first, the worse we feel, and the larger our need becomes to rest. We then start to believe we don’t have the time to dedicate to our mental, spiritual and emotional wellness because we imagine it will take an afternoon to feel better, which we don’t have.

The misconception is that we need a large chunk of time to reconnect.

The vision I received was the zig and zag in this visual below. We are to develop the habit of weaving moments into our day to receive spiritual connection and support, thus clearing fear regularly, receiving love and support from the Divine, and promoting overall wellness.

We are not designed to do this alone!

 During these pit-stops, remind yourself to Breathe mindfully, Connect (to your body and then Spirit) and Receive (spiritual love and support).

From a reconnected state with a higher vibration, you can choose a new mindset for your next task.

The new mindset will likely feel lighter in your body and create more desirable results in your life.

Ways to open portals to connect and receive the ‘one-minute positive energy boosts’ include:


  • Simply say ‘help, please reconnect me to your love and support’.
  • Send up a prayer/request for support
  • Listen to your favorite worship music
  • Listen to any music that lights you up
  • Imagine yourself being visually cleansed with white light being poured down.
  • Essential oils
  • Hold crystals and set intention for what you need them to do
  • Put your hand on your heart and recite your favorite mindset affirmations
  • Step into nature of any kind, and BE with it.  
  • Cuddle a pet

Don’t leave it until you are exhausted and about to “lose it”, before you use some of these tools to support you. Or in other words:

 The Zig-Zag Method – Use it or or “lose it!”
