What’s your part?

I can’t stop listening to this song this morning, I am including the video below so you can listen to it too; it’s called Glorious by One Voice Children’s Choir.

As I finished my morning ritual, my meditation, my prayers, and my sacred time journaling and channeling, this song kept “singing” inside my head and I knew I had to share it.

2020 started on a tumultuous foundation of political upheaval with superpowers versus middle east playacting and the Earth “literally” on-fire! I have learned the hard way that we can’t help transform what is going on by focusing on the disaster since energy flows where focus goes. The more you watch the news and you see images of war, fires, and devastation, the more you are calling in exactly the thing you want to go away.

The Universe answers to feelings. Emotion is the language of creation. My Spirit Guides are leading me to do my part by guiding YOU to call in YOUR life mission and support you as you start living it!

We MUST rise-up and do what we came here to do NOW. There is no more time for doubts, fear or playing small. If you know you are being held back by thoughts such as: “who am I to create big change”, or “I am just one person I can’t change things”, or “I don’t know if I have it in me”, or any other inner dialogue that is keeping you frozen, held back and unfulfilled, PLEASE reach out, contact me, share what is going on for you. If you know what you need please tell me so I can support you and if you don’t know what you need let’s talk and figure it out together. Here is a link to book a “Purpose Activation” free call so we can do just that.

I invite you to light a candle and set an intention to live a life of purpose, magic and meaning before you watch and listen the video-song below. I have listened to it many times this morning and every time it brings tears of joy and empowerment to my eyes and it lifts my heart.

Purpose, Love, Grace and Light,

Affirmations to start your day

 

Today I share a tool to support you as you harness the potential available to you as you walk your soulful path.

Anything we think, say or do will effect your life, therefore, it is important to nip the negative inner dialogue in the bud.

When you are going along the day or facing a challenge, what does your inner voice say? Does it encourage you with a “Heck yay, you can do it!” or does your internal critic kick in?

Whenever you find yourself within a negative loop of self-talk, the antidote is to interrupt the pattern and replace it with positive affirmations. Therefore, I want to give you a tool that you can practice every day so you can be ready to transform your inner dialogue to go from defeatist to constructive.

Know that YOU CAN control your thoughts, and that to break the habit of negative thinking you need to switch the channel in your brain to banish the negativity, and replace those thoughts with positive, valid words of wisdom.

Affirmations are positive statements that describe a desired situation or goal in the present tense as if the situation has already happened.

The way to use affirmations is to repeat them often as a way to reprogram your brain and motivate your mind to act according to the repeated words. This repetition tricks your subconscious mind to believe these statements and accept them as true, raising  your vibration and creating a positive field to attract congruent events and situations into your life.

I am sharing with you a shortlist of positive thoughts to get you started so that you can then add your own:

* I am a master at what I do
* I genuinely believe in myself
* I love and accept myself just the way I am
* I am grateful for ….. (this goes a long way, create as many as you wish!)
* I have peace and harmony in my life
* I am masterful at accomplishing whatever I set your mind to.

“I am” statements are super powerful. Create as many “I am …” with a positive adjective following the dots, as you can muster. Most of all HAVE FUN and enjoy loving yourself through positive statement affirmations.

Lots of love,
Shine bright!

Choose your words…

I am in an on-going journey to learn to be a master of my mind, my thoughts, my actions and my deeds. Yes, it is a great goal but don’t get me wrong, it is also selfish. Please allow me to me explain what I mean.

I have learned of the power of words both unspoken and spoken out loud. Words are powerful sound bytes that when thought in our minds create images and recall emotions and feelings, and when spoken out loud literally send the vibration of its meaning out onto the Universe.

Did you know that we think 60,000 to 80,000 thoughts in a day!!! I am serious!!! And it is up to you on what thoughts you choose to stop and pay attention.

Words thus create a big piece of our reality. You might not notice this in your life until you start to be watchful.

For example, let’s imagine you are having an argument with your partner and you think “I know now he is going to be mad at me” and therefore you start walking on eggshells or saying things in a different way and guess what happens? You guessed right, he got mad.

Another scenario may be that you are putting forth a growth project in your business from which you expect to gain more profit, but as you go about it you keep thinking “it’s not going to work”. Need I say more?

You see, your subconscious does not judge whether your thought is accurate or even helpful; it accepts what you tell it as “fact” and does what it can to make what you told it take place.

Words then become the precursor of “self-fulfilling” prophecies both for good and for bad.

I invite you to start becoming a sever observant of your thoughts and of the words you speak up. Watch for catchphrases where inavertedly you may have spoken a statement that has not happened, that has a time frame in the future, yet you say it as if it were truth.

We are used to looking at what is happening in the present moment and thinking and making statements about what is possible in the future based on the now. This type of thinking creates many limitations and stops you from growing and living the life you dream of.

What’s it going to be? Are you going to overlook this or take it to heart? This is powerful stuff, take me up on it!

Love and light.

“Words are like people, they have their own personalities.”

Love is the Answer

The Answer is Love!

 

Remember when John Lennon used to sing “love is the answer”?

I know, it is trite, and overused, BUT…. LOVE IS THE ANSWER TO ALL.

Think of this for a moment.

Whenever you feel down because somebody has hurt you, the way out is to give love back.

If you received envy and aggression, yup, you’ve got it, the way to heal YOUR wound is by sending love back.

When your heart has been broken, the way to mend your heart is loving the one who hurt you…

When someone, anyone, has done something that has left you feeling down and broken, the answer is…. Love. You’ve got this.

There is a caveat however and I am going to share this key aspect with you.

I learned from Boddhisatva Fukyo who lived more than 800 years ago a fundamental aspect of answering with love. Around the 1200ths when Buddhism was in a downfall period, people would be aggressive towards those following the Buddhist path to enlightenment. Whenever someone would speak ill of Fukyo, curse him or throw stones at him, he would move to the side to avoid the stones while leaning towards the aggressor, and hands in prayer he would say “I have profound reverence for you, I would never dare treat you with disparagement or arrogance, because I can see the Buddha within you.”

Isn’t this a beautiful anecdote? This story tugs at my heart because it explains very clearly that learning that love is the answer doesn’t mean to “turn the other cheek”. This is not about submission or loving when what you desire is to respond back with similar energies such as hate, revenge, spite or other responses.

Responding with love means protecting oneself from the aggression and the aggressor (as in moving to the side to avoid the stones) BUT understanding that we are all ONE, that we are all a vessel of Source energy. It is about healing ourselves and learning that loving back is the only way to freedom.

I love a good conversation and this subject might create strong opinions in you which I’d love to hear about. Please write to me any time. CLICK HERE to write to me!

Lots of love and light,

How do you feely today?

How comfortable are you with where you are at in your life today?

You may be super happy really surfing the wave of your life or you may have a few or many areas of your life where you wish things were different.

I hear you. I can say that most times I will answer the questions above finding a distance between where I would like things to be and what my reality is actually showing me.

Buddha used to say “earthly desires are enlightenment.” What he meant by this is that our struggles are gifts as they act as catalysts for our search for meaning. As we realize the gap between what we want and what our current reality is, the stretch we are called for expands our lives and takes us one step further into tapping into our soulful purpose, experiencing true love and living our best live all around.

Basically, if your life isn’t exactly how you want to be right now there is reason for celebration! Yay!!! You have something to strive for, you have a dream to fulfill, you have a reason to get up perky and ready to hit the ground running every morning.

The key thing is for you to remember that having an imperfect life is perfectly all right. Do not make yourself or your life wrong.

If you need help bridging the gap between where you are and where you want to be let’s talk. You can book a purpose activation session HERE.

Up an at ’em gurl!

Love and inspired action!!
