Ask Marie

Hi Marie!

I’ve been a fan of yours for years, having read your book Intuitive Self-Healing, a while back, but have only recently joined your list. I still refer to your book here and there, like this afternoon, when I was drawn to the chapter on healing the second chakra.

I’m writing today b/c I’m stuck. I’ve been doing the 3-week energy pulse challenge you mentioned in August, and it’s helping me start shifting some old beliefs about myself and my husband/kids and my ability to allow myself to be loved and happy. But I’m still stuck at allowing myself to earn money. Even though I’m 48, I’m struggling financially. I’m not sure what exactly is getting in my way–or, probably to the point, what isn’t getting in my way!–and am at the point where I can’t muck around anymore. I need to make some big shifts, and I need to make them quickly.

Sometimes, I feel like I’m still grappling with a fear of growing up. But at this age, it’s time for me to step up and take care of my family, my children and myself. Perhaps not so ironically, I give a lot in my writing and my work with others (undervaluing myself) and while I’m often trying to give away the farm in my work, why am I not allowing myself to earn enough to support myself and my family? More importantly, how do I shift this?

I’ve had some moments of clarity and forward-thinking these past few months, but then keep getting pulled back under. The insights I’ve had and changes I’ve made haven’t led to any additional income and I’m at the point where I need to earn money quickly, so I am spinning out about how and where to do that. I’ve applied to some jobs that look good, but worry that I’ll have to give up my writing and teaching work to move in a direction that a) allows me to make money at b) the expense of my family and c) my writing career. Another part of me wants to jump in and take a crappy, low-paying job, much as I’ve done all my life. But I’m done with that (as well as undervaluing myself).

That’s why I’m writing today. I could really use some help. My mind is a wily place, and I felt called to write you while reading the chapter on the second chakra today. Please let me know if you have any insights–I would so appreciate your help.

Again, thank you for all you do. Thank you for lighting the path!

Tanja

You’re very welcome, Tanja!

Thank you for listening, reading and doing homework!!! First and foremost, you cannot talk about money in any way that is not positive, regardless of your situation, regardless of your history. I could see through your writing that you have your money issues down to a science. The analytical approach has been satisfied. Now, it will be important for you to stop thinking, speaking, and writing about lack. This will be a BIG change!!! But worth every effort necessary. The main reason for this request has to do with the most powerful chakra in the human body…the 5thchakra. Resting in the center of your throat, this vortex is all about communication. Any form of declaration will involve this center. Its power expands to the fifth layer of the auric field, frequently called the Divine Plan. Your future, magnificence, and true higher self’s desires are embedded in the 5th layer of the auric field. Until you can create supporting language around money, please don’t speak about it. In fact, only use words representing money that make your energy vibrate in a high frequency. And please stop asking the Universe; how, what, when, or why. The Universe’s ability to communicate to humans through our limited belief system can’t include language regarding time, as time is a man-made phenomenon. The Universe works beyond any limits you could provide. It also loves to surprise. Let go and be surprised by your magnificence!

XO,
Marie


Dear Marie,

I’ve written in before and I just love your show and advice! I’m writing because I am baffled at how to heal my throat chakra issues. I am only thirty years old, however I now have constant ringing/static sounds in my right ear predominantly. I have no idea why and even after clearing my ears of wax, it is there. As well (and possibly related), I clench my jaw at night and have been doing so for years, as well as a new development of a permanent frog in my throat. I am aware I have a throat chakra blockage, however, even with daily ‘what if’ questions, these issues persist. Any help and insight into why and how to deal with them would be much appreciated!

Love and light always,
Cherie

Dear Cherie,

Thank you for listening to the show!!!! First, the ears are governed by the third eye. Your hearing is related to your intuition. This is good news!! The ringing in your ear is a common complaint when an individual is not listening to their inner knowing. This also means you have a lot of that (inner knowing) going on. Your higher self is in alignment for you to receive and use more insightful abilities. For whatever reason, you have some resistance to expanded consciousness. Reducing, significantly, the amount of time worrying over your hearing issue would free up other energies for intuition to become evident. Get excited every time your awareness is diverted to the ringing. With an emotion of gratitude, you will open the doors to the unseen world, and fill your being with clever knowing.

Love,
Marie


Hi Marie,

I am trying to help my 93 year old mother who has started showing signs of dementia. It’s very upsetting of course. My two younger siblings are helpful but kind of in denial about her needs. She’s in the family home (since 1959) and would be desperately unhappy to leave. In fact she would have to be physically restrained at this point, which I can’t bear the thought of. But her end of life illness is progressing and we need to make plans. Can you offer any advice? This is where I find myself fighting a bit with my two siblings and so it’s a very difficult situation. My mother currently is very vulnerable to any number of disasters that would send her to the ER and a convalescent home with serious injuries, (and that seems to be the scenario that my siblings would prefer!)

Thank you.
Tandy

Hello Tandy,  

Thank you so much for listening to the show! Congratulations to your mother for her longevity and amazing human spirit! In life, there are moments that could create difficulties. It sounds like at this point whatever you do will undoubtedly cause several issues. I would do nothing at this point, other than checking on your mom frequently or hiring someone to do so. Instead of trying to avoid the disasters you fear, love your mom and her gigantic spirit! See her happy and free, and close off the human desire to create chaos. If for some reason an undesired event occurs know that you and your siblings will create the best next step!

Love,
Marie


Hi Marie,

I’m curious on your thoughts about recreational cannabis.

Much love,
E

Dear E,  

I think over all Americans have way too many opportunities for escapism.  Phones, televisions, shopping, alcohol consumption, and now the legal use of cannabis. Individually, we must consider what is really good for our being…mentally, emotionally and, of course, physically.  If we listen well to our being we will know without a shadow of a doubt what is in our best interest. Then we must follow the intuitive message to align and grow consciousness. 

Love,
Marie


Marie,

I know you believe (as do I) that when we are aligned with our purpose and speak our truth, beings on the other side will work to help us along our respective paths. Does this work in the opposite? Are there negative beings that work to keep us away from our truth? I have heard you say that you don’t believe in “protection” against evil as it will more likely attract them as repel them. What is your perspective on negative entities?

Stephen

Dear Stephen,

First, I don’t believe in evil. I never have. Fear, which is what ‘evil’ is, manifests through the limited ego of the mind. The universe is a kind, loving, unconditional supporter of all. Many time space realities are void of words like war or crime. The earth is different. Our current temporary home was created as a place of contrast for unique learning. Our souls choose to travel to our planet hoping the experiences offered here will delight our beings, while providing opportunities for growth of consciousness. In truth, beings help us all the time regardless of the alignment we are able to hold. We, fortunately, are able to notice the spirit world’s unconditional support when we are aligned. Their love and joy for us never waivers. This is the real reason why I don’t participate in protection. It is an unnecessary act based on fear.

Love,
Marie


Hi Marie!

I was wondering how I should handle this type of situation: Some of the things my dad says to me sometimes feels very judgmental. He doesn’t understand me that well and, as a result, sometimes suggests things that I find insulting (even though he means well). For example, that I should get a minimum wage job and not try to aim “too high” or become an entrepreneur because it won’t amount to much. (I have a college degree.)

I know that others’ opinions/suggestions about me shouldn’t bother me, especially if it feels off base. However, I do feel sensitive, sometimes, to certain things (such as unsolicited advice that is unintentionally offensive).

I visit my parents every 2 or 3 months or so, due to my career-related activities, but I’ll be making my trips shorter (like 2-3 nights instead of a week). I feel like I have taken so much time to heal/process (from childhood trauma) and “find” my way back to myself to the point where I am paying attention to my feelings, speaking up, and trusting my intuition more.

I would appreciate any advice you have to share. Thank you for all you do and for sharing so generously in whatever you do. I absolutely LOVE your podcast and newsletters!

Angela

Dear Angie,

Thank you for writing in and following me on Facebook! I’m sorry you’re still dealing with feelings of frustration regarding your family of origin. The central reason why beings of light decide to travel to Earth school is to learn. The second reason is to experience joy. We choose our parental units prior to incarnation, and the reasons for our unique choices are profound and extremely important for the learning process. For those truly fortunate, based on human beliefs, joy is a constant within the family of origin too. For the rest of light beings, having a human experience with family roots is simply a path towards birth and the life we truly want to lead. Your father is a young soul, many years younger than your soul years. Younger souls are doing their best (mostly unconsciously) to learn compassion. The size of the heart chakra of a younger soul is approximately two and a half inches in diameter, where the size of the heart chakra of an old soul fills the entire chest cavity. At times the old soul’s compassion, measured by the 4th chakra’s size, is so large that it can’t contain its energy, spilling gorgeous emerald light beyond the human form. Even though souls may have lived dissimilar numbers of times, we are still fully capable of teaching each other. You of course, in relationship to your father, are trying to teach him compassion. Old souls do not need to learn compassion. Their greatest challenge is to turn away from pain and learn the delicate art of letting go. Your dad is doing his job…teaching you to not care. Do your job and don’t, while telling him that he is only allowed to speak to you in supportive non-judgmental ways. Do not hang out with him until he does. But most importantly stop caring about what you think he thinks or what he says. He is a young soul. His knowledge is light years behind yours. Stop treating him as if his soul has lived as long as yours.

Love,
Marie
