Lighten Up: Living in Prosperous Joy

Lighten Up: Living in Prosperous Joy

I recently had the opportunity to speak at Unity of Fayetteville in Fayetteville, Arkansas.  To listen to and/or download the inspirational message, please click the Hightail link.

The last few months, I’ve consistently become more aware of consciously choosing to live my life with passion, presence and purpose. Spending time in reflection has also involved questioning mortality, life and truly living.

I often say each one of us are having our own unique human life experience. However, all too often we deny ourselves the opportunity to experience something magical or even limit ourselves based on the fear of being judged. What will people think? How will people perceive me? Will they like me? Is this good or bad, right or wrong?

We may also withhold expressing how we feel because we fear being criticized or judged for saying too much or not enough. To me, it feels extremely limiting to get caught up in what other people think, yet I am human, too, so those thoughts do arise.

Take a moment to consider – Are you living a life of joy or simply existing?

It’s time for each one of us to lighten up and consciously choose to live a prosperous life with passion, presence and purpose. Do your best to live your life fully with no regret. Speak from the heart. Be present in the moment. Stop judging and being critical of yourself and those around you. Surrender to the sweetness of life. Live your life and let others live theirs. Everyone is experiencing their own journey into consciousness.

Journey with Aliveness

Journey with Aliveness

Imagination makes it possible to experience a whole world inside the mind and creates possibilities. It offers the opportunity to look at any situation from a different point of view and then to mentally explore the past and the future. Through the power of imagination, we can transform our lives and is one of the keys to living an enhanced or different life. Whatever outcome we envision, we can achieve. Using this gift, we can release limiting thoughts and realize our divine potential.

Learn to use your imagination to raise your thinking to a higher level and to consciously create by choosing to replace any negative (lower vibrational) thoughts with positive (higher vibrational) ones through awareness and intention. Doubt and fear are the biggest obstacles to the manifestation process. Understanding how to use your imagination and putting this knowledge into practice, for your own and others’ benefit, will put you on the path to success, satisfaction and happiness.

Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement. ~ Golda Meir

With so much heavy and chaotic energy surrounding us, it is essential to attain and maintain inner peace, not just for ourselves, but also for the collective consciousness. A heart-centered love-based intention reminds us to stay in a space of grace, especially when faced with challenges. In doing so, we are tapping into the well of Divine love. This love is accessible, unconditional and unfaltering. It transcends yet also embraces.

It is time for each one of us to wake up to our greatness so that we can truly live life fully. Have the courage to imagine this reality and choose to journey into consciousness with fullness and aliveness rather than simply existing.

Journey with Joy

Journey with Joy

As I’m beginning to write, these Sunday school song lyrics are in my mind:
I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart
Where?
Down in my heart!
Where?
Down in my heart!
I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart
Down in my heart to stay

Joy is defined as a feeling of great pleasure and happiness. Personally speaking, it is often the simple things that bring me the greatest joy. We have recently had a lot of rain in Oklahoma, and I am always on the lookout to see a rainbow when it rains. Traveling home from Tulsa last week, I was eager and excited to catch a glimpse of one beginning to form.

Subsequently, I was delighted to view an entire one from end to end. Sensing my joy, my husband offered to pull the truck over several times, so I could fully embody the experience rather than whizzing by at 65 mph.

I snapped several images, yet the vibrancy and expansiveness were unable to be captured fully. Nevertheless, here are two of the images from that moment in time.

Of course, this is just one example. I believe that it is essential for each one of us to become aware of how we’re investing our emotional, mental, financial, and physical energy, and then choosing to recognize whether these activities bring us joy, connection, nurturing, rest, and creativity to our lives.

When we focus on bringing love and joy to our life or perhaps just allowing it to happen rather than bringing, it will have a ripple effect throughout our life. A simple affirmation can assist us with this process.

Affirm ~ My heart overflows with gratitude and joy. I am conscious of being present in this moment. I recognize that I am love and I am loved. I am allowing myself to simply breathe.

What makes you happy? How do you journey with joy?

Focus on Your Own Journey into Consciousness

Focus on Your Own Journey into Consciousness

This is a gentle reminder to do your best to focus on your own journey into consciousness rather than feeling that you have to keep up with the proverbial Jones, whether it be your friends, family members or even co-workers or colleagues. At times, you may feel like a kid in a metaphysical candy store with a plethora of options to choose from – classes to take, books to read, modalities to study, and so on. Choose to really feel into what resonates with you personally instead of what your friend or colleague is doing.

When you consciously choose to step into your power and tune in to what is right for you, the answer will be very clear. You will know what feels right and what doesn’t. You will know if the class, teacher, book, or modality resonates with you personally. The feeling of empowerment is a strong knowingness and undeniable. When others attempt to guide you based on their own preferences, the feeling is one of uncertainty or confusion. It may be right for them, but it may not be right for you.

In the same sense, share your experiences and opportunities with others, but do your best not to influence them or make them feel obligated. Let them make up their own mind. When you do, both of you are empowered!

Navigating this Journey into Consciousness

Navigating this Journey into Consciousness

The point of life is not to get anywhere – it is to notice that you are, and have always been, already there. There is no such thing as an incorrect path –
for on this journey you cannot “not get” where you are going.
~ Neale Donald Walsch

As I stated in my last blog titled, Choose to Meet People Where They Are, navigating these waters of life can be challenging at times. Some days everything is awesome and life is good. Other days, we may feel like we are treading water and barely staying afloat. This journey into consciousness reminds us that everyone is having their own human life experience.

Remember, your soul is already awake. It is your human-ness that is waking up and connecting to the knowing-ness of your soul. The waking up process is an on-going process of consciousness and awareness.

Strengthening your relationship with Spirit involves heightening your awareness and taking note of everyone and everything that comes into your awareness. Don’t be obsessive. Rather, begin to acknowledge what you experience through your senses as you focus your energy in the present moment. Pay attention to what you see, hear, feel and know. Doing so will become easier with practice.

Signs come in the form of animal messengers. They may be birds, insects, mammals or reptiles. I love referencing Ted Andrew’s animal speak pocket guide when an animal crosses my path literally or comes into my awareness through media or during the dream state. Also, number sequences on the clock or phone, license plates, receipts, etc. are signs. Songs or short lyrics that come into our mind or on the radio are also signs.

First, acknowledge that you see the sign (regardless of what it may be) and then express your gratitude for receiving it. You will gain clarity on the meaning in due time. Sometimes, the message is just the awareness of receiving a sign.

Be kind to yourself as well as to those around you. Everyone is experiencing life in their own way and has their own reality.

Journey with Support

Journey with Support

marcelproustquote

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners
who make our souls blossom
. ~ Marcel Proust

We are not alone on this journey…

Every human being desires to not only feel loved, but to give love as well. It is innate within each one of us to want to connect with others, to want to be open and to live an authentic life. We want to love and to be loved in return. Expressing love and sharing kindness takes such a small effort, yet has an enormous effect. This ripple of love surpasses anything anyone could imagine if they would simply allow this love to come in. There is an essential need for people to grow together, support one another and walk together as both human companions and soul companions.

Recognizing your connection to those people who are in your life today will assist you in understanding the important roles we play in each other’s lives. Please remember though to not compare your journey to anyone else’s journey as we are all having our own unique human life experiences. As fellow travelers on this journey into consciousness, let’s be happy for one another, celebrate the accomplishments and be supportive during the challenging times.

Personally speaking, I’ve had relationships with both friends and colleagues shift and change. It isn’t a bad thing per se, it just happens. My true friends know that I am always a phone call, text or email away if they need me. Some of my friends I am in daily contact with. Others, there may be days, weeks and even months that go by with very little contact, yet once we do talk; it’s as if no time has passed. To me, that is what true friendship is all about.

Some people feel hurt and neglected if they have friends who aren’t “daily connection” friends. When you feel this way, honor yourself and what you are feeling and then ask yourself a few questions. Have you reached out to those friends in your life? Have you let them know that you miss them or that you need them? Have you been the kind of friend to them that you want them to be? Friendship is most definitely a 2-way street.

Ultimately, we are here to support, encourage and love one another for this human life experience.

Journey with Empowerment

Journey with Empowerment

As an Intuitive Medium, Reiki Master and Spiritual Growth Coach, my purpose is to assist others on their journey into consciousness by empowering them to recognize and acknowledge the guidance they are receiving for themselves. Our solar plexus chakra is the energetic center of our knowingness, also referred to as our “gut instinct.” As we tune into this power center, we become more empowered to stand in our power and to feel safe in shining our Light bright.

What does standing in your power mean?
When you allow yourself to be who you really are with all people all of the time, you are exhibiting the courage and strength to be seen and heard. I refer to this courage as standing in your power. This involves communicating your needs and desires to others as well as to yourself. Standing in your power simply means “owning” what you believe to be true and then speaking your truth. Emanating this power in your words and actions requires no thought when you become accustomed to doing so.

Throughout your life, some people may try to control you or the choices you are making. When you allow this to happen, you are either consciously or subconsciously giving your power away to another. Do you recognize when this happens? How does it make you feel?

Any time a pattern or experience repeats itself, it is important to acknowledge it and then allow yourself to see things from a Higher perspective. These experiences will continue to repeat themselves until you recognize the lesson the experience is offering. You may ask – What am I supposed to learn from this experience. Why do I feel this way? 

8 Steps to Become Empowered

  1. Ground and center your energy while consciously bringing your energy to this present moment. You are in the flow of manifestation when you are living in the here and now rather than dwelling in the past or planning the future.
  2. Have the courage to be who you are always and in all ways. There is no need to carry the energy of what others may think or say about you. Each one of us is having our own human life experience. Choose to honor your experience as well as everyone else’s experience.
  3. Say what you mean to say. When you speak your truth, you will recognize the importance of hearing the truth from others. Be mindful when communicating and discern if you are coming from a place of love or fear/lack. Communicate your needs and desires to yourself and to others. Don’t assume that everyone can read your mind – you have to speak up. 
  4. Listen to what your body is telling you. Pay attention to the sensations that you feel physically. As you heighten your awareness and tune in, you will be accustomed to recognizing this communication.
  5. Surrender and release to Spirit/the Universe anything you cannot control. The five things you can actually control are your own thoughts, words, actions, emotions and reactions.
  6. Choose to be conscious of the energy you are emitting. Are you sending mixed signals to the Universe with your thoughts/words and actions? When you align your thoughts, words and actions with your beliefs, you are walking your talk and talking your walk.
  7. Trust the guidance you are receiving. You may not understand the how, when, why, what, where aspects, but it is important to acknowledge the guidance you are receiving and express your gratitude for receiving it.
  8. Be patient with your progress. Cease the mind chatter and negative self-talk. Honor yourself and what you are feeling.
