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.”

You do you!

I was recently at the Women’s Leadership Conference in Las Vegas. I had 2 days to be among 1500 women and listen to a dozen women speak from stage.

I laughed, cried and was very inspired by each one of them in a different way.

Can you guess what was their common denominator?

AND

Do you know what was their underlying message regardless of how they chose to convey it?

You guessed right on both accounts. YOU GET TO BE YOU.

Each speaker was A-MA-ZING because they brought their authenticity, their vulnerability and their life experience with them. They spoke from their hearts sharing how their lives cracked them open and how they were able to stand up and make it big.

Most importantly, a common denominator is that at a point in time when they acted upon a certain event by following heart’s calling, as silly as it might have felt in the moment, ended up being a crucial event for their lives becoming their successful soulful path.

You may want to research them and follow them in social media. My favorites were Nely Galan, Mary Kelly, Stacey Nadeau, Patti DeNucci and Mimi Brown. They are sooo different from one another and yet, each one was magnetic sharing their message.

Think for one moment and answer for yourself: “What is holding me back?”.

You know the one and only task you must excell at is for YOU TO BE YOU. I love it when I hear it over and over told by so many spiritual masters and successful people. In order to succeed you don’t have to be or do more, you simply have to “remove” what is superfluous, what is not serving you. You’ve got to remove what is weighing you down, masks and false beliefs, to name a few.

I invite you to CLAIM YOUR purposeful life. You CAN have it all. Believe you can. There is truly nothing in the way other than what you THINK and BELIEVE you CAN or CANNOT DO. So which on is it going to be???

You are being called to shine brighter!

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,

Up an at ’em gurl!

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.

Love and inspired action!!

Testimonial “Carol Bartomeo”

To have Valerie as a coach and healer was a unique experience that left me empowered.

When I started the coaching process, I was at a turning point in my life, in which I had been released from my job (I was a teacher for 25 years), I had just closed a 25-year-old relationship with my husband and I was starting a new phase in life with my two teen daughters. To begin with, I knew I had to focus on my life Mission but I didn’t have a clue on the “how to do it”. In addition, I also had to process some deep experiences concerning my fears as regards love and success. I felt I was at a loss.

A process with Valerie is not just any coaching process; it is a holistic experience in which she walks beside you and shares all her knowledge and tools for you to go deep inside you and feel reborn with all you need to stand by yourself. She is generous enough to share all the material she has developed, for you to nourish from it. She has so many tools to help you make the best of your healing journey that it is a fulfilled promise of your success in the end and you enjoy it as well.

She was always available when I needed extra help and she accompanied me a 100% in different ways: sending me supporting material, energy healing, channeling messages from my Guides, and much more in a loving, caring and safe atmosphere always protected by our Divine Teams. She helped me align and focus, state my goals with clarity and go for them step by step, letting me empower myself on the way and encouraging me to trust. “Your time now is like Indiana Jones”, she said. “Move one step at a time and trust that the path will show up”

At that moment, I remembered the movie: “Only the penitent man will pass. The penitent man kneels before God. The penitent man is humble before God.” I have done nothing wrong, that was clear. I had left guilt aside, with Vale’s help I cared for my inner child and I recognized I am worth loving. Thus, it was not fair to call me a “penitent” woman, as Indiana Jones said.

So I provided my own version: “Only the aligned woman will pass. The aligned woman kneels before her own path because she surrenders to its sacredness and trusts she is at the perfect place to evolve. The aligned woman is humble before herself, she is aware of her strength and goes for everything she deserves with vision, love and passion.”
