Free to be me

I am fortunate to have been born and raised in the U.S., a country where I am free to be me. These days, I call Japan my home. In either country, I can speak and move about freely. I can choose what I believe. I can choose what I do. Of course, I can choose…

I acknowledge the hallucination and what he is seeing because for him it is real

I could hear a crackling of plastic as my father-in-law approached the table for breakfast on Sunday. He wasn’t holding anything, and I couldn’t figure out what was making the sound. Then I looked down at his feet and stifled a gasp. I wasn’t sure whether I should laugh at his odd choice of footwear or…

When do you adjust your energy to others and when do you hold your own space and let them adjust to you? | Exploring life with Marci at marcikobayashi.com

Do you adjust your energy to others or hold your own space?

I’m pretty good at holding space but not necessarily my own space. One of my superpowers is adjusting my energy to other people – finding their frequency and matching mine to it. It is not something I think about consciously, and it is not something I remember learning to do. I do it naturally. It…

Do you use your intuitive abilities when you build websites?

The truth is, I ask for help from angels, animal spirits and other guides whenever I get stuck in my daily life and even when building a website. Help shows up in a message from spider, crow, a song on the radio, a random bulletin board or even a rainbow. This is who I am…

Energy leaks and thank yous

During a group call yesterday with fellow web designers, our coach brought up the idea of energy leaks in response to an issue someone was having in her business. It caught me by surprise.
