REST with Kayla Hines
It's a new year and a full moon. I can't think of a better time to share this enchanting interview with Kayla Hines. She's as fabulous as Carrie Bradshaw, even more ingenious and impressive than Elle Woods, and her manifesting magic matches Sabrina's. Plus, she's a Hogwarts-level wiz when it comes to numbers, and she might have you thinking she's part mermaid after this, too.
More than anything, Kayla is an incredible teacher and channel whose radiant personality shines through whether she's advising about love, fear, or the feminine. But don't just take my word for it; read her words for yourself. After all, trust is a choice, as Kayla so beautifully explains. She also shares a manifesting secret, her daily rituals, and what seems to be her daily lesson.
WHAT ARE YOUR RITUALS TO RELAX, REJUVENATE, AND RESTORE YOURSELF?
Restoration is so important to me as I am always mindful of my energy. I have both morning and evening rituals as I have a full calendar of clients and classes that include energy and healing work. I make a promise to myself every day to keep my energy in first priority. That means that I cannot help anyone before first helping myself. This helps me from burning out and it allows me to maintain the schedule that I do.
Morning Ritual - I wake up early in the morning and spend the first hour on my intuition. I turn on my fire and candles and get cozy with my cup of tea. I am a scorpio so ambiance is extremely important to me. I have a loft with huge windows that face the ocean and forest. I watch the sunrise and connect with Goddess. Some of you may refer to this energy as source, higher power, or God. I open up my day by breathing divine love in and asking her to guide my every step that day. Here is where I set my intentions for my day, my clients, and my feelings. I will also clear my energy and work on my vibration. I always pick a feeling that I would like to bring into existence that day. My morning time is precious and it really does set the tone for my day. As a spiritual mentor, I use my gifts daily and need to be on my “A” game in order to show up as a leader.
Evening Ritual - I tend to work a lot of hours since I have a full calendar of clients while building my empire for modern souls. I used to spend time in my journal and connecting to source, but I really connect more in the morning. You may laugh, but my evening ritual is to cook dinner and watch a show like The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. You probably didn’t see that one coming. I like to keep balance in my life. I never want to be “too spiritual” and sometimes my purpose can take me down that road. I like to remind myself to never take myself too serious, and also take part of my human experience. When your career is spent in spirituality, sometimes you need an outlet that is completely different from your daily interactions. This is why I am a modern soul. ;)
Daily Ritual - Water. I drink a lot of water and tea throughout the day. With energy work, the water helps energy to flow through and not get stuck. This also helps clearing and emotions. I also will use salt in water to help clear my energy and keep me in my own feelings. As a psychic medium I pick up on lots of information throughout the day. Salt and water help restore me back to my energy so that I know what is real and mine and what is information for someone else. Salt and water will help your intuition come alive. I don’t go a day without it.
What is your advice to empower women to make time for (guilt-free) rest?
I often work with clients who will place everyone else as priority in their life before even thinking about themselves. We all want to manifest, yes? We all say we want more abundance, more love, more freedom.. until the moment comes when we have to accept it. Here is my take on sensitive women much like you reading this right now. I believe that you are the most magical being, and you have the potential to be one of the greatest manifesters out there. Yes, YOU. Here is a little secret: manifesting is the easy part. It is accepting it that truly scares us. Imagine for a second that you are calling in love. If love were to knock on the door when you did not fully prepare (ie shave your legs, clean your home, put your best self forward) would you invite love in? Or would you tell him to come back later? Or would you hide completely. To fully accept yourself is to allow the beautiful blessings to come through. I am at a place in my life where I would open the door even if I had toothpaste smeared on my lip. Hahaha.. So how do we get to that place? Keep a daily appointment with yourself. If daily is too much, perhaps weekly. We never miss appointments for fear of letting someone else down, so its time to not let ourselves down. I put appointments in my calendar just like I do my clients, and I keep that time. It allows me to create side projects like my personal YouTube channel. The empowerment: If you want abundance, change, blessings… your action step is to keep a commitment to yourself. Why? Because when we are in our power, we will change the world.. naturally and energetically.
Please describe a time when you had to surrender to rest.
I will never forget the lesson I learned in 2016. I can be a very serious person and get caught up in my to-do lists, emails, and job tasks. I was getting ready to launch my fall manifesting course and was putting my channeling gift out in a public way for the first time. I channel divine love in the name of Goddess. She and I share a very unique relationship. I was super stressed with some big bills that were coming due. She told me to play. I thought it was so silly with everything on my plate and was quite frustrated with this advice. In true fashion, I trusted and followed along anyway. I found myself putting my wetsuit on and getting my board out on the water. To be honest, I kinda had a bad attitude before hitting the waves, but I surrendered to my guidance. Then I sat up on my board with the shore super far away and let it all sink in. It was beautiful. I closed my eyes and thanked Goddess for bringing me out of my mind. In that moment, a dolphin popped out of the water right next to me. It was playing with me. In that moment, magic found me and all of the worry was gone. When I got back to shore, I had more energy to finish what I had on my plate and even finished early. I ended up making $20,000 in three days after that dolphin and I played. So funny, when we rest what we need appears. My take away here, is that we as women need to remember that the masculine side needs balance. I have very masculine energy which allows me to live in my ambition. My ambition would not take me as far as I am without the rest and softening of the feminine. In order to live in alignment, we must rest. To surrender is the most authentic form of trusting. Isn’t that why we are here? To learn to trust. Seems to be my daily lesson. When I surrender to rest, magic appears.
How do you tune into your body's wisdom to know when to rest?
I used to get so frustrated with my body. It seemed to always be in pain. One day my mom, who happens to be my business partner and most talented energy healer, told me that my body was trying to talk to me. This seemed silly to me at first, but I trusted her. I would open my journal when I would experience a pain, and ask my body for a message. Funny thing happened, my spiritual gifts started to unfold and show themselves to me. My body started to trust me that I was listening. Since then, it has been four years and I have not been sick once. Today I will ask myself in the shower or salt bath what it needs from me that day. Our bodies are always talking to us. May this inspire you to start to listen. If you are anything like I used to be, I would need my body to scream at me in order to get my attention. Now it is a gentle whisper, and that creates rest. I allow myself enough sleep and rest each day and if I have to let someone else down, I will. My body is my greatest tool in using my intuition and spiritual gifts. Again with the theme of trust. Once our bodies trust, healing happens.
I spoke a lot about trust with you today. Let me blow your mind right now: TRUST IS NOT A FEELING.
I used to wait for this feeling to catch me in order to feel like it was okay to trust someone. Especially in love, I used to tell my lovers to show me something or prove something to me so that I could trust them. Its been many years since that time, and the greatest thing I have learned from Goddess: TRUST IS A CHOICE. I make choices every day, and sometimes many times a day to choose to trust. It may not feel completely authentic to choose trust, so here is where you can begin today:
“I am willing to believe that possibly maybe _______ and so I am willing to choose this to be truth.”
This has changed my life in so many ways and I hope this inspires something within you to awaken and remember how truly magical and powerful your soul really is.
Thank you for being here and taking the time to listen and read. Love you to the moon and back!!
