I promised the listeners to Lights On with Nancy Lee that I would post my step-by-step frequency-raising system here, so here it is!
Welcome to Julia's Blog, Lights On listeners! Hope you'll visit here often!
Step-By-Step Frequency Raising
A strategy for coming back into alignment when you're feeling disconnected
Step One: Observe your feelings and listen to the conversation in your head without judging what you observe. If you feel angry, resentful, hurt, sad, fearful, or anything other than joyful, or if what you’re hearing in your head is other than loving, your ego has taken the wheel and is blocking your perfect alignment with your God-Realized Self, and holding you out of the flow of Love from Source, thus lowering your frequency and keeping you in the “misery matrix.”
Step Two: Acknowledge your intention to shift back into alignment as soon as you recognize that you are misaligned, and express your intent to surrender to your God-Realized Self: the aspect of you that is perpetually in alignment with Source and thus is totally loving, all wise, all powerful, and consistently blissful. Being aligned with this unlimited Self and rising in frequency (the result of being in alignment) is the solution to all problems.
Step Three: Allow your ego to express whatever it needs to—whether it’s rage, grief, or self-righteousness. Just let it come out. If writing out your feelings (for your eyes only) would be helpful, do that. Cry, yell, punch a pillow—do whatever you need to do to discharge the energy. Do not resist anything that comes up on the basis of it not being “nice.” (These exercises are for you and no one else—ideally, you will do them in private.) Observe without resistance while this is going on, and know that these feelings are not a part of you, but simply “stuff” that needs to be discharged to make way for Love to flow. Devote as much purposeful time to this as needed.
Step Four: Select any frequency-raising support activities and tools that seem appropriate and utilize them (A partial list is at the bottom of this post). Moving Life Force freely through you without ego choking off the flow is the key to rising in frequency. Music is one of the most powerful realignment tools as it easily bypasses ego resistance. You may want to use sad or angry music during Step Three, but once your ego has expressed and you’re feeling more peaceful and ready to allow yourself to move toward joy, choose music that you feel will be helpful in boosting you upward.
Step Five: Let go to the upward movement of your energy and enhance it by breathing into it and celebrating it! Stay focused on the wonderful feeling of Life Force flowing through you, and feel it elevating you closer and closer to the “joy space.” Repeating the words “Thank you. thank you. thank you. thank you, thank you” over and over again to your God-Realized Self is like fanning a spark to turn it into a flame. Feel the magnetic energy of the joy space calling you upward and revel in the feeling of being there—it’s your true Home!
Honor your intuition as to what else you need to do. Your intuition is your God-Realized Self guiding you.
Repeat as needed.
Frequency-Raising Support Tools and Techniques
Raising your frequency is a matter of unblocking the flow of Life Force from Source (also known as Love), so that it flows freely through you without resistance from your ego. The following are some of the many tools and energy-moving techniques that will help get you back in the flow!
Music is one of the easiest, most effective passive tools for frequency-raising as it is generally something that bypasses ego-resistance and entrains your energy to it without effort. You can use music to assist in moving out emotional “stuff” when you’re providing ego the chance to be heard so it can drop its resistance. Music composed as an act of healing is especially potent for this. Upbeat, rhythmic music will lift you up higher when you are ready to move to the joy space.
Conscious breathing—breathing dynamically and purposefully—realigns you with the rhythm of the Divine. Imagine you are breathing in Light and breathing out whatever is not in alignment and blocking the flow of Life Force through you. Using circular breathing techniques (rebirthing therapy) can rapidly move energy blockages through and out and free your energy to flow, but simply sitting and focusing on your breath is also a powerful way to get centered, oxygenated, and enlivened.
Aromatherapy is a powerful, passive frequency-raiser that bypasses all ego resistance.The aromatic essences of plants were provided by the Creator for the purpose of assisting us in realigning with Source, thus balancing, healing and energizing us. Smelling a pure plant fragrance brings our energy into the frontal lobes of the brain to the pineal gland where our God Knowingness is accessible. Many fragrances such as frankincense, sandalwood, rose and balsam fir are particularly effective for stimulating the pineal gland and raising frequency. Essential oils must be therapeutic-grade for this use.
Sleep is the gift we are given daily to get our ego-minds out of the way so we can realign with Source and Life Force can freely flow through us. Getting enough sleep is extremely important in raising your frequency and keeping it high.
Relaxation is like “neutral” in the gears of a car. When we relax, we allow energy in reverse polarity to come back into alignment. When things are going wrong, taking a deep breath and relaxing mentally and physically puts Spirit back in charge.
Toning is using your voice to raise and balance energy, something you do instinctively as a child. There are infinite ways to tone, but here is a technique to try: Start by sounding “oooooooooo” (rhymes with “glue”) at the lowest note your voice will go and raise the tone up smoothly over a period of a few seconds, from as low as you can easily go to the highest you can easily go, like a siren starting up, and hold the highest note as long as you can. Do not force the sound—let your voice gently wrap around the sound so as not to cause vocal strain. Repeat. Experiment with your voice and find your own favorite technique!
Exercise, including stretching, is a really great way to get the Life Force flowing freely through your body again. Physical movement not only causes energy to move through and oxygenate your brain, it stimulates the release of endorphins, which are frequency-elevating, as witnessed by the way they move you into joy. Do your favorite workout, dance, play a game that requires movement, or simply take a walk. The key is to move.
Frontal lobe stimulation withdraws energy from your reptilian brain (home of your ego’s greatest influence) and draws it into the part of your brain where your God Knowingness is available. You can stimulate your frontal lobes by focusing energy there. One easy way to do this is by visualizing your amygdala—two walnut-sized structures in the mid-brain at about eye level—and imagining Tinkerbell swooping in and tickling them with a feather. (Thanks to NeilSlade.com for that idea.)
Radiating Love unconditionally is the most frequency-raising of all activities because in order to do it, you have to be in alignment! It is what you were designed for, and the ability to do this is “hard-wired” into you. When you radiate Love impersonally, just the way Source does, without concern for who is receiving or appreciating it, you are automatically in perfect alignment.
Other powerful frequency-raising activities to try include:
~Writing a letter to God, and channeling God’s totally loving answer in response
~Appreciating something or someone (gratitude is an especially powerful form of appreciation)
~Communing with Nature and allowing it to trigger your Love response to it
~Doing something for someone with absolutely no expectation of anything in return
~Using water, a magical, electromagnetic substance, to soak in, shower in, swim in, gaze at, and drink (being well-hydrated is essential for operating at higher frequency)

Yikes! I've been so busy having fun this Memorial Day weekend, I almost forgot that I wanted to post the following to the blog. I am "cheating" because I've already posted it to a couple of forums and I'm just copying and pasting here, but just in case you don't know about it, here is the big news for May 29!
I am being interviewed on the radio TODAY, Monday, May 29, from 11 a.m.-12 noon Pacific time, which is 2:00-3:00 p.m. Eastern. (You can use the time zone converter for figuring out the corresponding time in other zones)
It's Internet radio, so it doesn't matter where in the world you are, you can hear it! I hope you'll tune in. I think it will be fun and informative to listen to. The interviewer and I have a great rapport already, so I'm expecting fun!
The show is "Lights On with Nancy Lee" and to listen, you go to HealthyLife.net and you'll see the blue "Listen Live" button in the top right-hand corner. If you can't make it then, it will be replayed the following Monday at 11 p.m. Pacific, 2:00 am Eastern, and then archived so you can listen anytime you want to for the next 2 months.
But the part of this story I'm most excited about sharing is not so much that I'm going to be on the radio, but about how it happened!
As a spiritual teacher with a book and a powerful message, I know that media exposure is important, but I felt absolutely no energy to beat the bushes for it. So, I told the Universe I'd be happy to show up for any radio gigs if it would simply bring me the opportunities. And I let it go.
A few weeks later, I posted a message to an email list I'm on. Here is what I said, " No amount of razzle-dazzle metaphysical effects or insights or left-brain knowledge is worth anything if there is not the committment to radiating Love unconditionally."
There was no indication in the message at all that I'm a teacher, author, etc. Then, someone named "Nancy Lee" replies on the list and says, "Call me. I want to promote your message on my radio show." I figured she must have heard of me and knew who I was, but as it turned out, she had no clue--didn't know I was a teacher, and author, or that I had a website--she just resonated with what I had said in the message, was attracted to my energy, and acted on her gut!
Only after we talked on the phone did she know I’m a woman on a mission! She said in all her years of doing radio, she'd never, ever booked a guest for her show without knowing a thing about them. We got along like a house afire and it is clear to both of us that we are merely playing our parts in a larger plan!
When I found out who she is, and who she's interviewed, I was gobsmacked! You can check out her past guests here. From Wayne Dyer to Richard Bach to Neale Donald Walsch--it's a veritable Who's Who of human potential luminaries! I'm NOT saying that's what I am (okay, that's what I intend to be, though!), just that I am in awe of what the Universe delivered for me!
Ask, RELAX, be who you are, and ye shall receive the perfect thing!
My Romancing Your Spirit teleseminar went very well tonight with a lively group which included people from just about all regions of the US, plus a couple of callers from Canada, and even a caller from Down Under! Even though Rick needed to attend daughter #4's choral concert, I managed to handle things alone and even got the tape flipped over at the right time.
One of the things we talked about is that despite what we tend to believe, Love never comes from another person--it ONLY comes from God and returns to God in the grand cycle of Father God (masculine aspect of Source) radiating Love and Mother God (feminine aspect of Source) receiving Love. So often, human beings believe another human is the source of the Love they are experiencing, but they simply don't realize where Love comes from. Another person may catalyze your ego to allow more of the flow so it FEELS like the other person is where the Love is coming from, but that is not the case. All Love is from God moving through you and back to God.
Every love song written to or about another human is actually human beings mistakenly ascribing God qualities to other human beings.(Of course all is God, but I'm referring to the ego-focused level of being.) When you listen to any love song as a song either to you from God, or to God from you, it is very aligning and uplifting. Even the most sappy, co-dependent songs become anthems to the perfect Love that only your God-Realized Self can provide.
I promised the group that I'd post the lyrics to Earth Wind & Fire's "Fall In Love With Me" as an example of a great love song to imagine your God-Realized Self singing to you. so here they are. The music to this song is SO uplifting, the words are just not nearly as dynamic without it, but hopefully, you'll get the gist. This is one of the love songs that always raises my frequency way high and brings tears of joy when I imagine that God is singing it to me!:(Yes--I know I'm a little...different!)
Fall In Love With Me (Earth Wind & Fire)
I can tell you that love
Is too deep to be played on
Down the line, you'd find
Time would reveal who to count on
I'm well inclined to use the lines
That come from the learning tree
Let the seed that grows, and ages old
Give us our destiny
Baby, you know, I could pick you up
Turn your life around
If you fall in love with me
I would build you up, never let you down
If you fall in love with me
If you're having second thoughts from the past
I can cool you out
I've been there before, right down to the core
I can sing and shout
I can't hold back what I feel
I bring experience
I'll be your rock when Gibraltar falls
Baby, give me a cause
Baby, you know, I could pick you up
Turn your life around
If you fall in love with me
I would build you up, never let you down
If you fall in love with me
Baby, in love with me, find yourself a part of me
Baby, in love with me, help yourself to all of me
I've got your number and I wanna shout
I dig you baby, come and check me out
I also promised to post my release decree for those who were seeking help in letting go, so here it is:
Decree of Dynamic Release
I willingly release the elements in my life that do not fit who I AM.
I allow them to be free to find the niche where they next belong, knowing that they no longer prosper me and that they must be freed to prosper someone whose vibrations are a closer match.
I understand that to try and hold on to something that no longer matches my vibration requires me to expend too much energy—energy that, when freed, can create something more desirable and appropriate for me.
I owe no self-sacrificing allegiance to any person, place, situation, or thing that would hold me back from my progress and growth in Spirit.
I understand that, regardless of the perceptions of anyone else involved, if a relationship no longer prospers me, it no longer prospers any others involved either.
I know that by consciously and lovingly letting go of forms that I have outgrown, I make way for those things that reflect the new, more evolved me.
I know that it is the nature of the Universe to fill any emptiness I create with something more vibrationally appropriate, therefore I have confidence that the release process is the first step in receiving bright, new blessings.
I am rewarded with peace of mind and the joy of manifesting forms that embody the essence of my desire in even more appropriate ways than I can yet imagine as I let go of that which I have outgrown.
I magnetize harmony, perfection, abundance and Love into my experience through my trust in the harmony, perfection and abundance of the Divine Design for Wholeness and Harmony.
I release with JOY!

Okay. One more story from my recent North Carolina trip. If you’ve read the blog entries about my drive to the airport to return home, you’ll know I was really in the groove, so it won’t surprise you that the magic continued. I don’t remember if I told you that I requested wheelchair assistance all the way through this trip because of my knee. Well, I did, and met quite a few really lovely people who were so very helpful to me. Swallowing my pride and accepting this assistance turned out to be much easier than I had expected, and it really saved me a ton of stress (not to mention, I don’t think I could have made it under my own steam based on the condition of my knee).
Anyway, when I got to the gate at the Raleigh-Durham airport on my return home, I was still buzzing from all the wonderful energy of spending time with Steve, the Earth Wind and Fire episode at the gas station, and the amazing hawk and mouse sighting, as well as my wonderful conversation with the young Moroccan man who pushed my wheelchair to the gate. I’m sure my vibrational frequency was sky high (pardon the pun!). I had a seat right next to the gate counter, with just a seat between me and a gorgeous African woman with a toddler, and as I was talking to Rick on the phone to tell him I’d made it to the gate, I noticed that there was a man at the counter talking to the gate agent, and that whatever the agent told him had completely freaked him out. It soon became clear that he had missed his flight. He flopped down in the seat between me and the woman and child, and buried his face in his hands. “Great,” I thought.
He soon jumped up and said something to the woman in a language I didn’t recognize and took off toward the main terminal. I looked at her anguished face and found myself saying, “Is everything okay?”
She said, “We missed our flight. My husband’s father died in Kenya , and they’re holding his body till we get there and we just missed our connection to Amsterdam .”
She looked like she was going to lose it at any second. I immediately put my hand on her arm and said with an amazing amount of authority, “Everything is okay. Do not freak out. That will not help. Take a deep breath (we both did) and let it go. There is nothing you can do but simply trust that All Is Well.” I felt extremely powerful—like a force of nature—and she responded to it. She visibly relaxed a bit, but then dropped her purse, and the contents spilled everywhere. I could see the anxiety rising again.
I said, “No big deal—let’s just pick all this up.” That seemed to steady her again as the three of us collected her things.
I got out my bottle of Peace and Calming essential oil and put a drop in her hand. The adorable little girl wanted a drop, too, so I gave her one. The energy shifted immediately as the oil did its work. I made conversation with the woman and the child a bit to distract them. She told me she had come to the U.S. just 2 years ago from Kenya to marry her husband, who had been here a bit longer. As she told me that they had come to the airport from about 60 miles away by hired van, and that they had checked their luggage, so they didn’t have an easy way back home, nor their things, I could see her anxiety level starting to rise.
Once again, I felt spiritual power surging through me and practically commanded, “There’s just nothing you can do about that except to simply trust that All Is Well and that you will be taken care of. Any other attitude is inviting more problems.”
Then I got out my bottle of Release and once again, gave her and the little girl each a drop, which they both inhaled deeply and gratefully. About that time, the husband returned looking overwhelmed and upset, and the woman immediately said, “You need a drop of Release!” So I got the bottle back out, and, not knowing what the heck “Release” was, he trustingly extended his hand for a drop, rubbed it all over his face and buried his face in his hands. Within 5 seconds he emerged looking like a different man! Those amazing oils!
When my flight was called a few minutes later and I got up to board, the woman thanked me profusely, saying, “I don’t know how you managed to calm me down, but it was amazing. I don’t know what would have happened if you had not been sitting there and been so kind and helpful.”
I do not know what happened with their dilemma, but I did feel very powerfully called to do what I did, and more than that, in the perfect vibrational space to do it. While your joy is always powerful, in this case, it was really obvious that my being in such an empowered state was able to make a critical difference for that family. It really felt wonderful to be used that way by Spirit. I'm so glad I was vibrationally available.
One more little tidbit about the trip—in a blog entry prior to my trip, I mentioned wishing to have Rick’s strong arms to assist me in my travels. And that it occurred to me that God has all the strong arms in the world and that I would just consider the Divine to be my traveling companion. Well, I had men with strong arms volunteering to help me right and left! I never even had to ask—they’d just see me limping along and rush up and ask if they could help! Very, very cool.
Some of you have heard me talk about unconditional radiance and how driving is the ultimate test of unconditional radiance—today's Sacred Cows is perfect!
One reptilian brain summoning another has a powerful allure, and the road sure does seem to be a place where the reptilian brain thrives. When we get to the point where we can ignore the summons, we’ll be almost Home!
You can get the strip delivered via email by going to the Sacred Cows site.
Last Sunday morning, as I drove from Raleigh to Winston-Salem to lead the Intentional Joy workshop there, I hit the road feeling lighthearted and happy despite the gray skies and rain—not my favorite driving conditions. But I soon found myself locked in one of those road tangos with a big truck—I’d pass it and the next thing I knew, it would pass me, and so on. I just couldn’t get away from it. No big deal except that it was hauling hogs to slaughter. I might have been able to disassociate from it, but there was one little pink ear sticking out of the slats getting soaked in rain, and that grabbed my heartstrings and yanked hard.
Oh, how I wanted that truck to exit! Or at least slow down so I could pass it so I could forget about it. I started thinking about how miserable to be crammed in that truck with the rain pouring in the openings. How confused those pigs must be. How frightening it must be to be herded onto a truck when you’ve never left the farm, and forced to ride miles and miles over the road when you’ve never experienced that kind of odd motion before. And then, to end your confusing, scary experience at the slaughterhouse, with the sounds, smells, and sense of fear and death in the air.
The trailer had a bumper sticker on it that said “Who farted?” and it made me immediately go into judgment about the driver of such a vehicle. “How tacky! How can he do what he does? He must be operating at a very low level of consciousness if he can do that without it bothering him. He must be almost unconscious to be able to do it!” I decided. (Of course, I had no idea whether what he did bothered him or not!) This did not make me feel better!
“JUST EXIT, PLEASE!” I yelled from within the safety of my car. But we passed exit after exit and still, he was right there with me. I needed to feel better about this. I needed not to be feeling the extreme empathy with those pigs. I asked for help in shifting my thoughts and feelings about the whole thing, and suddenly, I was able to see with crystal clarity how I was not helping the pigs with my judgment of their situation. I had the thought, “What if Nature has provided for them? What if it’s not as bad as I’ve decided it is? What if getting away from the factory farm is a blessing in their minds? What if being slaughtered and moving back into the bliss of Prime Matrix is a blessing? What if I could stop seeing the hogs as victims? What if I just accept this as being in Divine Order? What if I simply view this as God having the experience of being a hog going to slaughter?
And, of course, the very moment I had that thought, the truck exited and turned north toward Virginia.
On a related note, as I drove from Steve’s and Stephanie’s house to the airport on my way home to Denver, a hawk rose up from the ground about 12 feet from the road and flew right over my windshield—not but about 3 feet above my eyes. Dangling from its talons was a mouse. Instead of thinking, “Poor mouse,” I immediately thought of the article I read some time back about the Creator providing for prey so that their experience, once the initial fright passed, was that of ecstasy. This is brought on by the release of chemicals (endorphins, I think) stimulated by the shaking motion of the predator, or, in this case (I’m guessing) the swinging movement brought on by being snatched up in the hawk’s talons. Or, maybe, just from the innate knowing of what was going on. Surely, the Creator in all “its” wisdom provided for pigs, too.
I'm back from North Carolina as of last night--or at least, my body is. I think my soul is somewhere on its way between here and there as I still feel kind of disoriented. I spent the day resting and napping, napping and resting, and still I'm looking forward to going to bed tonight!
What a trip! It ran the gamut of experience and emotion, and I got lots of practice using my step-by-step frequency-raising techniques! I'm not going into the details now because I'm really just not in the right space for it, but I do want to share a magical experience or two. I had a bunch of them, and have made a list so I'll remember each one, and will add more of them to the blog as Spirit moves me to.
The one that I'm eager to tell you about right now happened yesterday on the way from Steve's and Stephanie's house to the airport. Well--actually, it started prior to that on Tuesday as I drove from Thomasville (where I had a great--though brief--visit with my dad), to Mary Mooney's offices in Raleigh that she calls her "Angel Space" where I was scheduled for attunements that afternoon. I had my iPod pumping out my joy music, rocking down the highway. As you'll know if you've read some of the past entries to my blog, Earth Wind & Fire is my high-frequency music of choice. So I'm cruising up I-40 with the song "Let's Groove" cranked up, and just as they sang the line that goes, "Move yourself and glide like a 747," I am passing the RDU airport exit with a big jet passing over my head. I grinned and said, "Cool!" as the synchronicity was impossible to miss.
Fast forward 28 hours or so, and I'm heading back to the airport area to drop off the rental car before heading back to Colorado . I had chosen to refuel the car myself as there's a very convenient gas station just the right distance from the airport near S & S's house on the way. So, I wheel up to a pump, open the car door, and what should be blaring from the outdoor speakers mounted on the gas station's mini mart? E W & F doing "Let's Groove"! Of all the songs in the world! Of course I was delighted--clearly it was a "God wink." And not only was that song playing, but there were only 2 other customers--not together--at the pumps, both of which were grooving to the music--both singing out loud and one of them at the top of his lungs! Grinning from ear to ear, I could not resist a little boogying myself while the tank filled! It was truly surreal. The song playing was magical enough, but the other people, only one of which looked even the slightest bit likely to be uninhibited enough to be singing and dancing at a gas pump, grooving unselfconsciously to the music was just the icing on the cake! It was like the Twilight Zone, only with no spooky ending!
As Steve said when I told him about it (he most graciously met me at the rental car place and drove me to curbside check-in and helped me with my bags), it was like a glimpse into a new, more harmonious world. Indeed, I distinctively had the impression that I had entered a parallel reality--or rather, created one. However it happened, it was just fabulous. And the rest of the trip was pretty magical as well. I'll tell you more of the details next time!
Okay—well—not gone yet, but will be by tomorrow morning. I'm excited to be heading to my homeland, for which I am always at least a little homesick, and I’m very psyched for the NC events. I’m feeling LOTS of higher energy and have a feeling I’ll be channeling lots during the events. The theme is “Intentional Joy: Systematic Frequency Raising for Optimal Experience and Authentic Power.” I’d love to see you if you can come!!!
Here is are the links to the event details:
http://www.recreating-eden.com/events_200605-winston.html ( Winston-Salem)
I’ll check in from the road if I can, but I won’t have much time, or my own computer with me, so if you don’t hear from me, you’ll know I’m just caught up in all the goings-on in NC.
Please visualize wonderful crowds of receptive people, who find themselves more joyful and remembering Who They Really Are more fully because of attending my events! And see me, energized more and more by all that I do and experience on my trip!I’d love to stay and chat with you, but I’m not completely packed and it’s an early a.m. for me!
Till next time, Love and hugs!
