New year, new you, new dreams

If you are like me, 2017 wasn’t all you had hoped it would be. Sometimes, it was fabulous and sometimes, not so much. Some days in fact, it may have felt like you were being tossed around on the spin cycle of your washing machine. But… it’s almost over! And we get a whole brand new, shiny, clean slate in 2018! We will have 365 new days to do it differently. And that’s just it – we must do it differently!!! You cannot repeat the same patterns and expect new results. So, I want to share with you something I read from Tosha Silver today… she referred to it as a “great prayer for the end of the year (or end of any big cycle)”. It is very simple: “Please bring me a miracle of completion.” She describes it as “an offering to the Divine that anything the needs to occur karmically to round this cycle out, let it occur!” If you are ready to leave 2017 (and its baggage) behind and to only take the lessons and blessings forward with you into 2018, this prayer is for you! 2018 brings new chapters and new chances; make the most of it! The best is yet to come!  ...

Change is in the air!

Fall will begin today in the Northern hemisphere. Long summer days will switch to cool autumn nights. The trees which have been busy growing will drop their leaves in preparation for dormancy over the winter. While fall may be a good time for us to mimic nature – in the sense of letting go of what no longer serves us- it can also be a great time to reevaluate our lives and reinvent ourselves in a sense. What isn’t working? What have you been clinging to that really needs to change? What has your heart been begging you to do? What would bring you profound joy? It doesn’t have to be anything big or result in a major shift. Maybe you’ve known for a long time that you want to change your eating habits. Start with one small change. Notice how you feel. If it feels good, keep going! If not, make an adjustment. Keep a journal so you have a record of what works and what doesn’t. Maybe you are hanging on to the idea of a relationship with someone that you know isn’t right for you. It doesn’t mean there’s a flaw in you or in them. It just means that for some reason, your needs aren’t getting met, and no amount of wishing it to be different is going to change things. It’s always good to see the potential in something, and it’s even better to recognize the reality of a situation. Ask your angels to help you let go. Maybe you’ve had the urge to create something, to start a new job, to try new...

You are what you think!

Thoughts are things – very big things. They can make you- or break you. If you believe you can do something, you are likely to achieve it. Likewise, the opposite is true. (If you believe you can’t, you won’t.) A lack of belief in yourself or your ability or in what you are capable of having can create your reality. These beliefs might sound like: “It’s not possible to have a job I love AND make great money.”, “There are no good men (or women) left. I’ll never have the kind of romantic relationship I want.”, “It costs a lot of money to eat healthy.”, “I can’t afford to go on a big vacation.” This is the lack mindset, and these thoughts carry a very low vibration (energetically). We do not attract the good stuff when we are in a low vibrational state. This means we don’t attract what we want – we attract what we are (which is often what we actually don’t want). So, see if you can bend those beliefs just a little… “It IS possible to have a job I love AND make great money.”, “There are good men (and women) everywhere. I am looking forward to meeting them.”, “It costs a lot of money to be sick.”, “I can start saving for a big vacation.” There, don’t those thoughts FEEL better?! Now, look for examples (or proof) of how these better feeling are really true (i.e. people you know of who have been successful in these areas or small ways to move toward your goals). (The brain can focus on the negative or the positive,...

Go where you want. Do what you want.

It doesn’t matter where you come from, what you’ve gone through, or who your parents are, your future is not fated to be the same as theirs. We all have the free will choice to choose a different life. You can move to a new town. The world is full of places to explore. You can overcome your past. What happened does not define who you are. You can have a different career. You don’t have to work the family business. The Universe is abundant. The only limits that exist are the ones we place on ourselves. Allow yourself the fun of dreaming. Allow yourself the freedom to make those dreams a reality. Tune out the naysayers, and get busy creating an amazing life! Don’t settle for less than a life that sets your soul on fire. Celebrate your success. Celebrate your failures too. It’s moving you in the direction you are meant to go. And no matter what, find joy in the journey.      ...

Everything happens in its own time

I think I’ve shared this with you before but maybe not… In university, my friend and I always said “Patience is a virtue.” (Neither one of us – at that time – being particularly patient people.) I have developed more patience over the years. Big life events happened which made me realize I can’t control most situations no matter how much I want to sometimes. I’ve learned that everything happens as it’s supposed to and in the right timing anyway. Take nature for example… I noticed earlier this year that throughout the summer various kinds of flowers pop up in the ditches here in Nova Scotia. In June, we see Lupins. A bit later, there will be Queen Anne’s Lace and the orange Daylily. Right now, it’s little purple Asters. (To name a few of the types we see here.) It’s not the variety of flowers that amazes me (although I do love seeing the different colours). What I find so intriguing is that they just appear out of nowhere – when it’s their time to do so! No stress. No struggle. No thinking: “Here I am a seed stuck in the ground where no one sees me. I want to be a flower – in bloom and admired by people and animals passing by.” Whenever you find yourself not being exactly where you want to be in life, remember it might not be the right time. Practice patience. (If you aren’t sure how to do that, this article might help.) There’s no need to worry; The Universe has got your back! (Besides, worrying is like praying for what you don’t...

I don’t need any more cryptic bullshit!

The other day I was thinking about my life and how I have been feeling sort of stuck. This is not the typical me. I don’t do stuck. I hate feeling stagnant! As a true Scorpio, I actually thrive on change. I felt fed up. I’m tired of being patient and waiting for the “right time”. I want what I want NOW! I was literally walking around talking to myself saying “Something’s gotta give! I’m a good, kind, caring, compassionate person; I deserve to be happy and fulfilled!” That night I was talking with a friend of mine about it, and she asked me if maybe I was depressed. “No, it’s not that”, I said to her, “I just want The Universe to send me a really distinct sign- I don’t need any more cryptic bullshit!” Now, if you know me, or if you’ve been following me on my blog or Facebook for any length of time, you know that I am generally an optimistic person. I can usually find something good in every situation. And I am very in tune with receiving signs from The Universe. I love analyzing my dreams. I look up animal totems. I know a little about numerology. I have dabbled in Feng Shui. I meditate to clear my mind. I self coach to keep my limiting beliefs and fears in check. If there is some kind of woo woo magic to experiment with, I am open to it! However, right now I’d just love to see something – some bit of clarity or direction – as if it was clearly written on a chalk...
