Trusting My Beliefs

Trusting My Beliefs

“Everything happens for a reason” and “Things happen ‘for’ us and not ‘to’ us” are both beliefs that I hold dear.  They help me navigate day-to-day ups and downs.  And most of the time, this is easy for me!

Then.., there are days when it’s not!

I can always tell when I am invested in the outcome of a situation looking a particular way. Especially when it is not going the way I planned, or think it should.  There are visceral sensations in my body.  Tightening in my solar plexus, tensing in my jaw, nervous energy in general, etc.

These are my cues that I am clutching to or trying to control an outcome that is not up to me.   read more…

Everything is Coming Up Roses

Everything is Coming Up Roses

Sometimes when life gives me roses, I still try to make lemonade.  At least that is how it has been feeling lately.  Let me explain.  Most of us try to look on the bright side.  To see the good in what is happening in our lives.., even when it’s something that seems a little sour.

We look for ways to turn a sour situation into something more palatable.  As the old saying goes, we turn the lemons into lemonade.

So what about when the things we’re experiencing are really juicy and sweet?  Do our minds still try to make them more palatable?  I am asking, because I notice that’s what I seem to be doing a lot of these days.

And it goes against everything I intend. read more…

Be Kind!

Be Kind!

“Ah, kindness, what a simple way to tell another struggling soul that there is love to be found in the world.” A.A. Malee, Poet, artist, author, and performer 

How are you feeling this week? We’ve had a lot of lunar activity and those of you who are sensitives may be feeling it. Downloads of higher frequencies are also occurring so please notice how you feel and nurture yourself – be kind to yourself as a beautiful expression of self-love! Begin with yourself first before focusing on others. Build your inner reservoir of kindness and compassion so it’s not depleted before giving it to others. I know that this may seem counter intuitive for those of you who are consciously committed to helping others. Once your reservoir is depleted you know how exhausted you become so remember it’s not selfish to be kind to you first! read more…

Open to the Unknown!

Open to the Unknown!

“We do not have a fear of the unknown. What we fear is giving up the known.” Anthony de Mello, Spiritual teacher, writer and speaker

Have you ever wanted to change something in your life but for some reason you didn’t? Have you ever wondered why? In spite of living a more conscious and intentional life it still can happen. I don’t know about you but when it’s happened to me I have tried to rationalize why it wasn’t the right time and I’ve even moved into self-judgment and asked, “Why am I procrastinating?” Then I feel guilty about beating myself up. It happens less now. I realize now that fear can create so much resistance to moving forward even if the change is positive. I’ve asked myself, “Am I really afraid of the unknown or am I afraid of moving out of my comfort zone and what I know?” read more…
