Energy Intuitive and Personal Transformation Guide
In this special edition of the Chaos & Light Podcast, Andrew Martin co-hosts with Angela Levesque. Andrew and Angela both speak and write on subjects in spirituality, consciousness, and personal growth. They decided to come together once a month to dive deep into these subjects in a light and playful way.
This inner child guided meditation is part of a weekly Living Light Meditation gathering in the Chaos & Light Community. This meditation takes you through a brief guided relaxation to remove any resistance. It then invites you to connect with your inner child to ask them what they need for their healing. You may find their message for you is inviting you to bring more lightness and play to your life. Or they may be asking you for some deeper recognition of unhealed trauma and emotions. Honor your child’s message and return to this practice as many times as is needed. If you uncover something that seems too big for you to handle, don’t hesitate to seek out the assistance of our counselor or therapist.

We are going to begin by taking three deep cleansing breaths.
Taking a little bit longer on the out-breath, letting the body completely release and relax on the exhalation.
Now I want you to follow the flow of the breath as it moves through your body. Not trying to alter the flow, just letting it move easily and freely through the body.
Take a moment to call yourself back from where ever you have been during the day. Draw your energies back home to your center. Bringing mind, body, and energy into the here and now.
Allow your mind to empty what it no longer needs to hold on to, let it go, flow out and away. And allow your body to release what it no longer needs to hold on to, letting it flow out and away.
We will do a short guided relaxation to remove any resistance and move the body into a place of deep calm.
I want you to bring your attention to the top of your head. I want you to imagine a wave of relaxation beginning at the scalp and moving slowly downwards.
Feel the wave of peace and relaxation move down the face. Allowing the muscles around the eyes to release and relaxand the muscles of the jaw release and relax as the wave of relaxation continues to move slowly downward.
The wave of relaxation moving down now through the neck and the shoulders. Feel the shoulders drop as they release the tension you’ve been carrying. Using the exhalation as a way to move deeper into the release.
Now the wave of relaxation moves down through the muscles of the chest and abdomen. Bringing release and relaxation to the whole front of your torso.
Feeling the wave of relaxation moving through the back – moving down from the upper back, mid-back, lower back. Feeling the muscles release and relax all the way down the spine.
Feel the deep sense of peace and relaxation in your whole upper body
Now imagine this wave of relaxation moving through the hips. Breathe into that area as you bring your awareness in your root. Letting the breath open the hips and remove any tension.
Now the wave of relaxation moving down into the thighs – the upper thigh, mid thigh, lower thigh. Moving down to the knee. Bringing with it awareness and deep release.
Now the wave of relaxation moves over the knee and into the lower leg. Feeling the flow of the breath and relaxation move down the calves.
And finally, the wave moving all the way down into the soles of the feet, allowing any last bits of tension to flow right out the soles of your feet and into the earth.
And now that you are in a calm, relaxed and safe space…I want you to imagine yourself in a beautiful setting…this could be a meadow, your backyard, a mountain top. Just someplace that you feel safe, comfortable, and at peace.
For the next few moments, take in this setting with all of your senses. The sounds, the smells, the sights. Breathing it all in………..Letting all of the colors, sounds and smells bring a vibrancy to your being as you breathe them in.
You begin to notice a faint outline of a child coming toward you. As this child moves closer, you notice that this is you as a little child. Take a moment to notice their hair, body, eyes.
The age that you are. Notice your child’s attitude, expressions. Are they looking at the ground, are they curious, are they sad?
Invite your child to sit next to you at whatever distance is comfortable for them. As they sit next to you, you notice that you can see and feel….. as they see and feel.
What does the world look like from their eyes? How does the world feel from their perspective?
Turning to your child, ask them – What do you need most from me? Allow the child to answer in whatever way is most comfortable for them..a drawing, a gift, through words. However, they express it is exactly how it needs to be done.
If you are able to give your child what they need from you at this moment, please go ahead and do so. If they ask for something that you cannot give right at this moment, tell your child what you can give and if it is something that is possible in the future, tell your child when this will be possible and give your child a symbolic promise for the future.
Now ask your child is there anything they wish for you to hear?
Take a moment now, if you are not already, to sit facing them. And if it is alright, hold their hands in yours. Look at your child in the eyes and then tell you love them………you honor them………. you hear them………… and they have always been enough.
If that feels complete. Ask your child if they are ready to come home with you today. If your child is not ready to come home with you today, tell them you will return…….thank them for their time……… and let them know that you will continue to honor them and work toward being together one day.
And if your child has chosen to come with you today. Give them a moment to say goodbye to their surrounding….allow them to collect anything they need for their journey….. and invite them home.
This can look however you want, holding hands, a heart to heart connection, a full integration of self. Whatever is most comfortable for both of you at this moment.
Allow this integration to occur, bringing you both into wholeness, balance, and harmony.
And when this integration process feels complete. Spend a moment in your heart center in gratitude.
In deep appreciation for your inner child, for the experiences that made you who you are today.
Let this appreciation move through your entire body. Letting gratitude fill every part of your being.
And when you are ready, take a few deep breaths connecting you to your body. Feeling your body make contact with the chair, floor or bed beneath you.
Bringing your full awareness to the room around you.
Wiggling your fingers and your toes…….gently shrugging your shoulders. Bringing your full attention and awareness back into your body……back into your room…… and when you are ready, allowing this sense of calm, peace, and centeredness to remain in the body as you open your eyes – aware and alert.

How does uncertainty affect our creative capacity? Why do we become more narrow and rigid when things feel outside of our control? On this episode of the podcast, author Jacob Nordby and Angela Levesque touch on a variety of topics ranging from curiosity to creativity to self-love. Jacob shares a very personal story that illustrates our ability to find calm amidst a storm and how simply taking a moment to breathe can change everything.

As we move into 2021, it has become evident that we need to get clear on the direction we want to go as individuals. There are so many influences tempting us to act on our baser instincts that if we don’t know who we are and how we want to show up in the world, we get sucked into the drama around us. In this episode, we explore intention setting to live meaningfully and consciously in the coming year.
This is the ‘What’ of the equation. Think of intention as the quality of experience you want most in your life. For example, being in a state of gratitude or feeling in balance. This intention is the calibration of your ideal state of being. We create this short phrase or single word with the understanding that we won’t always reach it, but it gives us a touchstone to connect to regularly. It is a big-picture or soul-level desire that encompasses the experience we would like to bring into being. Intentions are not detail-driven, because they don’t have to be. It is through this intention that we create an agreement with ourselves and the universal consciousness.
This is the ‘Why’ of the equation. We often hear about SMART goals – specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic, and timely. These certainly have their place, but in this model, we are seeking an experience or a state of being. So rather than focusing only on the outcomes, we are asking ourselves why this intention is valuable to us? Another way to look at it is by asking – what does my intention have to offer me? This is the essence of mindful living.
For example, if your aim is balance, then ask yourself, why do I want the experience of balance? What does this intention afford me? For this, we need to examine when our lives seem most out of balance. Is your work schedule too hectic? Do you tend to be an emotional eater? What experiences would balance offer you? You may realize that your goal is to learn boundaries, to say no to things you don’t have time for, or maybe it is the feeling of self-worth that lends itself to more balanced choices. If gratitude is your intention, perhaps it is the experience of abundance rather than lack or a sense of optimism rather than focusing on the negatives.
In this step, it serves us to do a little bit of root digging. Meaning, it is an opportunity to look at the underlying motivations around our current choices. I like to use the playful why. Hmmm.. that’s interesting? Why did I come home and eat that pint of ice cream? What was going on in my life today? Too much stress…bad fight with the spouse, etc.? Another way to approach it is to look at what your typical New Year’s resolution would be. If your resolution was to be to lose 10lbs, what does that 10lbs symbolize? e.g., self-worth, self-trust, boundaries. You get the idea.
This is the ‘How’ of the equation. These are the action steps you take to have the experience that is in alignment with the other two steps. This is when you get down to the real details. These action steps should be small acts of personal power that you can follow through on. If gratitude is your intention, and you’re looking for a more profound sense of abundance or inner peace, then maybe one of your action steps is to have a gratitude journal or to stop yourself once a day to take a breath and list five things you are grateful for in that moment. Action steps allow the expression of your intention and will enable you to have the experiences you named in #2. Every time we follow through on an action step, we build personal power. This power allows us to transmute and transcend behaviors and circumstances. It is the power of now. Start with thinking about three of the easiest ways you can change your behavior in alignment with your intention.
