Energy Of The Feminine!


It’s in the wind and it’s global.  The powerful progressive ENERGY of the FEMININE, is emerging at such a high level in this time. The evidence…. FEAR.

Fear has been displayed at all levels, from “glass ceilings”, limited studies on women’s health, politically restrictive policies to access, limiting beliefs toward women in leadership roles, to the fatal destruction of woman’s lives.

Don’t get me wrong…I’m not blaming this on men.  I have been blessed to learn from men who understand the productive and life changing energy taught to them by women in their own lives. I simply want to bring awareness, that conditioning and old paradigm belief systems within societies have been nurtured to a high frequency for so long, that the FEEL you might be getting on a day to day can be hopelessness.

On thee “it takes a village” vibe, I only suggest to keep an eye out and support the women that have stepped up into the light and placed themselves in a vulnerable space.  Observe those women that are coming from a place of “mindfulness”.  Then support them.  Mindful women will open doors and create avenues for more women to thrive. I love the word shared with me this week “FEMTOR”.  Mentor or Femtor, be one for the youth in our communities. Keep sharing the VIBE!

“May kidnapped girls and women around the world, have strength and courage till their safe return to witness how the their journey has contributed to the healing of our planet.”

Passion In Prison


There are no words to describe the VIBE…

I spent my birthday/mother’s day weekend in prison.  Yes, I said prison.  Not like what you may be thinking.  It was a privilege to share inspirational space with brave and creative men that took center stage on the subject of transformation titled: “Infinite Possibilities”.

I say brave because they were brave enough to push past the so-called “norm” in the culture of most State prisons on the expectant short lived ignorant lifestyles.  They were brave to express their awareness by investing in themselves with education.

By participating in creative writing program called, “InsideOut Writers” ( they graced us with spoken word of themed poems and personal stories.  Elected officials, activist, actors, educators, musicians, attorneys, teachers all sat sprinkled in between 150 inmates to watch it.

The men I met were very gracious in sharing their journey to Ironwood State Prison, with the understanding that their choices at the time caused other people a lot of pain.

Part of Ironwood’s mission is to provide inmates with life improvement skills needed to successfully re-integrate back into society upon parole.  This also includes Academic Courses; ABE I, II, GED, Independently Study.

Ultimately, I was in a room full of people that genuinely care for other human beings and are putting action to it through their passion. The speakers comprised of community, inmates and Elected officials, including my Hubby Congressman Tony Cardenas, gave examples in story form, of people along their journey that told them, “Don’t try,” “You’re not good enough” or “You have ADD” and “You can’t make it”.

I look forward to what has to be a very moving TEDx video of the year.  Let’s stay connected and keep sharing your highest VIBE!

PeaceVIBE always,

Norma Cardenas, CHt.

VIBE Change!


The VIBE is changing up! Are you ready?

Everyday there are signs that the VIBE around us is continuous and always evolving.

This VIBE waits for no one. You might want to ride the VIBE. This VIBE can be predictable. You may notice hints of the VIBE change when you notice the snow melting outside your window, or a sudden serge of birds chirping in the morning or like me, noticed the fruit tree losing it’s blossoms to make way for the fruit. It’s time for the next change up in the environmental VIBE, and like the tree is naturally clearing what no longer serves it at the moment, I encourage you to make time to to do the same.

Here’s my contribution toward changing up your VIBE; toward an emotionally blooming environment.

Make a break for yourSELF today.

“Sit comfortable, feet flat on the floor, take a deep breath, close your eyes…, visualize or imagine that you have tiny faucets at the end of your toes.  NOW, tighten your feet (hold) r e l a x .. your feet,  imagining any tension rolling right out of your bodythrough the faucets on your toes.  Now proceed to tighten and release your thighs, stomach, chest, and shoulders sending out any discomfort out through your toes. Now, relax your jawbone, your cheekbones and your eye sockets.  You are safe, now just allow your body to enjoy a light floating feeling of relaxation. That’s it…..  Now take a d e e p.. breath and…. Exhale…..  when you are ready then open your eyes s l o w l y…  And when you feel comfortable you may get up slowly. Smile.

Thought Tweak of the day!

Let me tweak a thought today…

Have you noticed that when one gives, (donation, a helping hand, time) they tend to expect something back.  How about coming from an unconditional place? OFFERING. When one is offering (their time, donation, helping hand) one tends to be satisfied with the act itself. Offering is so much more fun and the quickest way to raise your VIBE. When you don’t expect anything, then you will also eliminate the moment of getting hurt because you didn’t get the response you expected.

The best part is that when doing things from this perspective, the return of blessings in your own life start to show up as an offering. (someone offers to donate to your cause, someone offers to help you lift something on to your car, someone offers to give you a ride, etc.) Offer yourSELF today to raise your VIBE!

Just A Thought Or Just A Doubting Thought?

Think about when you doubt something, like when you want something and you don’t believe it.  When you do this, you send out an opposing VIBE.  Examples: “I want to lose weight, but…”, “I want to find a better job, but…”, “I want to see peace in the world, but…”.

Think of it this way… a belief is only a thought that you keep thinking.  A lot of our decisions come from our conditioning, sometimes this can be conditioning from a false premise. SO, here’s my thought, and maybe you might join me on this.  If you do, I would love for you to share your thoughts on my Facebook page “What’s Your VIBE?”

I will experiment (write it, feel it, visualize it, say it) starting now, that I will think of something I desire to happen.  I will think it, till I believe it.  I will watch how the universe will bring the details together for me, because I know that “how” it gets done is none of my business.  Why none of my business you may ask?  Think of it like this, when I ask for something, from something that is bigger than me (God, source, angels, etc.), to make the things I desire happen, who am I to demand the details in advance.  I like the idea that my practice needs to be focused on raising my vibration to allow my vibe to match that of source (which is a bigger part of me), in order to manifest my thought into reality.

I will smile in acknowledgment of  the synchronicities, coincidences, new relationships and gifts that come my way in the process of manifesting.   My first thought with FABULOUS intention will be that you have a FABULOUS day all day! Smile!
