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.      ...

Finding sunshine on a rainy day

“I can see clearly now, the rain is gone. I can see all obstacles in my way. Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind. It’s gonna be a bright (bright) bright (bright) sunshiny day.” -I Can See Clearly Now (Jimmy Cliff) A few weeks ago, I planted some tomato, basil, and cilantro seeds in a tiny pot and mini greenhouses. Much to my amazement, they actually started growing!! As they grew taller, I noticed that they began shifting towards the window – towards the sunshine. I knew plants did this, but I hadn’t seen it in a while, and it struck me how everything in nature does what it needs to survive and live an optimal life. Humans are the exception here on Earth. Humans are the only animals who focus on the struggle long after it’s gone. We spend hours, days, even years re-living the past. We re-tell our painful stories over and over – sometimes to the point where we don’t have the capacity to even feel joy anymore (because we are still trying to numb the pain from the old event, which simultaneously blocks happiness from entering our lives). We also spend a great deal of time worrying about the future, asking the hypothetical “What if…?” question and causing ourselves unnecessary stress and grief. Neither of these behaviours serves us in the long run – not as individuals and consequently not as a whole (the population of the planet). “Happiness comes from within and is found in the present moment by making peace with the past and looking forward to the future.” ~Doe Zantamata~...
