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,

It’s not too late!

The New Year is here, heck, the New Decade is here, however, you are still on time to set high intentions for the new journey!

There are 3 practices I use and coach with to help prepare yourself for a powerful time.
I recommend you do all of these, as described below, in one sitting. Take at least 1 hour of time, create a sacred place where you sit down with your journal and connect within with the following guidance.

1. Release The Old. If you haven’t done it yet. The idea is to re-visit with your thoughts the decade we have just left behind, and in more detail the year 2019. Think of what topics, things, areas and people, are stopping you from living the best version of yourself. With intention release them, bless them, and send them in to the light knowingly choosing to leave them in the past.

2. Honor What You Did. Now make a list of 50 things you accomplished during the past year. YES FIFTY!!! Believe me, you have. They can be small or big, but they must be at least fifty. This exercise will leave you with a sense of accomplishment. We tend to forget how much we have done.

3. Set High Intentions. Finally, think about those things you want to create, those people you want to connect, reconnect, guide and be guided by and with, those events you want to live, and those things you want to transform. Honor what you have already done, those relationships you want to enrich, and visualize, think, feel and write it all down!

These 3 steps will make you enter this new decade with a feeling of possibility, joy and empowerment. It will connect you with YOUR unique vision and gifts helping you bring forth the maximum from yourself and into the world.

Begin today creating a big wonderful container to live your best ever decade of your life!

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!

What small change?

 

Sometimes it seems like nothing works the way it should. If you’re a human, you have probably hit that point where work is no fun, relationship is a struggle and you don’t even feel comfortable in your body.

At times like these, changing your life can seem overwhelming. There’s so much to do…where do you even start?

It’s quite simple, really…just change ONE thing.

Read a magazine article you would never typically even consider. Try a new type of restaurant. Take a different route to work. Any simple change of scenery can shift your perspective, and has the potential to drastically transform your life.

It’s like a ship at sea…if it changes course even one degree, 100 miles later it’s in completely new waters.

Of course, the most profound shifts are the ones you make on the inside. Annoyance can easily be turned into fascination. Frustration can be flipped to become gratitude. Even anger can be transformed if you simply turn it into a song.

You don’t have to tackle the whole enchilada, just make one simple shift.

And the best part is…it’s all experimentation. If you don’t like your new perspective, you can always go back to your old one.

What “one-degree” shift can YOU make TODAY?

Love and light,

Why gratitude?

Why is everyone so gung-ho about gratitude? Why is it so difficult to connect with the emotions of gratitude some times?

A few years back I went through a phase where I was waking up with anxiety attacks daily. I was very good at using meditation and energy healing techniques to do what is known as a “spiritual bypass” and overcome this state.

The problem with utilizing techniques to overcome the anxiety attack is that I was leaving the core issue unattended. The underlying trauma that was getting me a panic attack was kept alive and kicking, so every day I had to overcome the same anxiety building up during the night.

At that time a friend of mine was giving me the advice to use gratitude as a door to open up to love and get over the morning anxiety. When she was talking to me about gratitude I could not relate to what she was saying. Intellectually I understood her words but I couldn’t connect emotionally with what she was saying. This inability to relate at an emotional level to gratitude sent me further into a downward spiral of anxiety and fear.

As I deepened my studies working with energy I learned that you cannot leap from the lowest vibration of fear and anxiety straight into gratitude and appreciation which are opposite ends of the emotional vibrational scale. I learned that I had to work my way out from fear and anxiety in incremental steps.

From where I stood emotionally I could connect and envision myself feeling better, more at peace and evenly keeled emotionally in my daily life. It was a matter of doing it in baby steps.

There is something known as the scale of emotional frequency (Ref. David R. Hawkins in his “The Map of Consciousness Explained – see image) that shows the lower vibration emotions being shame and guilt, and as you move upwards you find grief, fear and anger. The pivotal point on the scale is with the emotion of courage.

From the moment you feel courageous your vibration rises as you lean into fear and start believing there is hope for you.

The highest vibration emotions on the scale rise as we shift from courage to love, to gratitude all the way to God Consciousness.

I did my healing moving up on the scale one step at a time. I worked my way from panic attacks daily to anxiety feelings sparingly to feeling good and at ease. When I leveled up I started waking up in the mornings feeling good and clear headed. Only then I was able to lean into fear tapping into my courage, creating a new vision of what was possible for me, believing in it, and YES, I was then able to connect emotionally with love and gratitude.

We have been given the ability to create our world in harmony with the Divine. I urge you to use your God-given gift… and, of course, feel gratitude for it. That is why I work with men and women so they can say YES to their spiritual gifts. I want YOU to prosper and live your own version of a magical and meaningful life.

Let’s shine bright together!

Love and light,
