Make Time for Love

Slide1

Make time for what and who you love.

How busy are you? Are you making excuses? Are those excuses about “not enough time?” Do you know what you would prefer to be doing given all the time in the world?

We have as much time as we need for what we love to do and who we love. Many of us have to work, yet many of us are still working too much. We think we need more “stuff” to be happy, so we spend more time making money to get more “stuff”. Is this “stuff” making you happier? Or is it filling a hole? What hole is it filling? Are you lonely?  Feeling unloved or unworthy? Are you craving attention to boost your self-confidence?  Perhaps you are fearful of understanding yourself and working all the time keeps you from thinking about your own issues? Whatever the case may be, it’s important to know we need a healthy relationship with our selves by making time for ourselves.  We also need to know it’s healthy to interact and enjoy time with those we love.

If we are not making time for what we love to do and who we love in our lives, it’s time to ask why. It is easy to get caught up in the “to-do” list. But what is on your “to-do” list? Is it ego fulfilling or soul fulfilling?  Ego-fulfilling items can be doing what society thinks we should be doing.  Working harder to prove we are hard-workers. Between our home, families and work, we can always find something to do. Then we tend to talk about how busy we are doing all these things.  Well, what about doing something soul fulfilling?  Something which makes you truly happy?  Maybe it’s exercising for the joy you find it (versus it being a chore on your to-do list), like walking through the park or along a beach, doing yoga or playing in a pool. Perhaps it’s playing a round of golf with friends. Maybe it’s going to a movie, playing a game with your kids, any arts & crafts, sitting quietly, meditating or going for a leisurely drive and letting the energy take you somewhere new to discover.  Any of these can be soul-fulfilling, and while doing them you may uncover or discover a passion you forgot about.  This passion could lead you to your life purpose, which you may be able to turn into your career.  And, having a career doing what we love is making time for what we love to do.

We all know in this 3D world we have our bills, need food and shelter, however, what choices are you making that are not in line with balance and enjoying your life? What is unhealthy for you mind, body or soul?  How can you change it?  If you do not like your job, are you searching for a new one or perhaps building your own business more in line with your passions?

Another question to ask yourself is “are you loving your to-do list?” How many times have you caught yourself doing something on your list versus Being in the moment? If you are so ingrained on getting things done, you aren’t being in the now and most likely aren’t enjoying yourself. You may not like cleaning, and find yourself complaining to yourself while you do it.   While doing one thing, you may be thinking about the next thing you need to do, which causes us stress. Make that “to-do” list and think of something else you can do which is creating balance because it helps you in some way. Try playing music you enjoy, which is known to elevate our energy. Or incorporate something else like yoga poses.  I clean the floors while in Goddess Pose, which makes my body and soul feel better because I love yoga.  I incorporate others poses here and there as well as I move from one thing to the next. I also practice deep breathing exercises and meditation while doing home chores. Combining our to-do list with what we love can really help us find time for what we love.

Can remember how often you may use the phrase “I don’t have the time” or “I’m too tired.” Next time ask yourself “Why am I not making time for myself or my loved ones?” and “Why am I so tired?” Ask yourself “Why is it important to me to be doing things from my to-do list versus (insert a fun activity)?”  Determine if you are truly tired and need to rest, or if you need a boost of energy by doing something you love. When we dig deep, we can find issues we may not want to face, but by facing them, we can heal them and let them go. “Busy work” is often a band-aid for something we do not want to face within ourselves. It keeps the focus from us, tiring us out, so we do not have to think about our internal “problems.”  However, the more we can dive within to deal with and heal from our issues, we reveal another layer of our authenticity. When we live our truth, or our authenticity, we attract more opportunities we would love to do, as well as, more people we would love to spend time with, as they are seeing us for our true selves.  Therefore, we are creating and manifesting time to do what we love to do, while also creating time to spend with those we love.

Perhaps it’s time to re-evaluate the to-do list and create a different list. Perhaps the list can be named the “Love List”. List all the things you love to do and all the people in your life with whom you wish to spend time. Start carving out time in your days to accomplish your “love list”. Note, it’s important that we are not checking off items like a “to-do” list, but creating time and a life in which we can enjoy all the things and people we love more often, through healing, awakening our authenticity and living the life we love.

What’s on your “love list”? I’d love to hear about it!

Namaste!

Understanding through listening

I’m honored to have this original blog featured on The Wellness Universe today!  

“We all have a desire to be understood. As you move through your day, do you listen more than you speak? Do you try to understand others or try to be understood? Do you ask questions or wait for others to ask you questions? Communication is key in understanding, and communication encompasses paying attention with all of your senses. It includes focusing on the other more than yourself or on your next reply. It entails not guessing what someone might be attempting to express, rather it is allowing the other to finish their thoughts.”

Hope brings Peace

Hope Brings Peace. Slide1

Expectations cause anxiety, stress, anger and fear, where Hope brings peace, kindness and Love. Hope is a positive vibration, lifting us up, while calming us down. It is not thinking others need to act, speak or think in a certain way. Expectations limit us to fully understanding life, not allowing us to fully accept or Love ourselves, let alone anyone else. Expectations say there is only one right way, where Hope says there are many ways. It leaves us space to learn and grow at our own pace in our way, letting others do the same.

Hope is supportive, where expectation is restrictive, closing us off the endless possibilities which exist. Hope allows us to be open, to the infinite experiences life has to offer us. Hope is not about one certain outcome, it is about being open to any and all outcomes, having the faith it is the best for ourselves or another.  It is knowing what you do like, yet being accepting that something even better can be delivered to you by the Universe.

Hope helps with our relationships, as we are not assuming someone will act, react, think or believe the same we do, teaching us acceptance of diversity and more. It allows differences of opinions, beliefs and thoughts, perhaps using them to better yourself in some way.  It is releasing any stubborn tendencies, and embracing others unconditionally. It is knowing there is no right or wrong way of being, believing all is for the highest good. It is being aware of all situations and experiences to create and manifest in the best way possible. It is hoping someone can find their way to create more Love and joy in their lives.

Cultivating and Strengthening Hope, and releasing expectations enables compromise, cooperation, consideration and collaboration. It brings a sense of compassion as it allows deeper understanding of self and thus, others. Hope is about acceptance of what is, even if you don’t like it or it is not necessarily what you believe.

Hope entails the ability to know we can heal from any past issues, pains or hurts, because something so much better is waiting for us to have space in our life. Hope releases judgement of ourselves or definitions we may have of ourselves because of our past. Hope gives us the sense of joy in all ways, always.  Hope helps us remain calm and peaceful, acting in kindness and love towards ourselves and others. It strengthens compassion for those who are having difficulties, including ourselves.

Releasing expectations eliminates future disappointments, bringing in the fresh energy of Hope.  When used properly, Hope helps us to see all possibilities, reveal our truths and authenticity, while experiencing the best life for us.

Free Will & Soul Guidance

Balance free will with soul guidance.

Slide1
As humans, we are given the choice of free will. We are free to choose what to think, say and do. We have the free will to stay or go from any person or situation. Using our free will in addition to our soul guidance helps us learn and grow. Our souls already know what we need to learn, with whom and why. It is up to us to listen to our internal guide and choose to learn from the situations we encounter.

We can always choose not to learn, and move along. However, choosing not to learn brings the lesson back to us in another form or with another person/situation, or even follows us to the next lifetime. Choosing not to learn brings that lesson back to us in an even more challenging way. I have had many lessons in this lifetime which I did not learn the first time around. We are only human and it can take awhile to realize we are here to grow our souls. It was even more difficult when I faced the lesson the next time and sometimes more than once. Upon looking back, I didn’t follow my soul guidance, and in using my free will, chose to ignore the lesson, causing it to repeat in an even more profound and difficult way.

One of the lessons I didn’t learn the first time, but have now learned, is co-dependence. I married someone who abused drugs and alcohol.  After Al-Anon, therapy and a lot of self-help programs, I was doing much better, however, still was divorced since this person was putting me in a legal, financial and security risk.  I later learned I was an empath and sensitive, which gave the co-dependence even more fuel.  Therefore, I worked on boundaries.  Enter the next person, who was a distance relationship until I quit my job, spent three months with him and had planned to move to another state with him.  Well, co-dependence came roaring back.  I missed the red flags, as I hadn’t learned yet how to really follow my soul guidance, therefore, my free will and choice led me to learn this lesson again in a deeper and more challenging way.

Free will and choice is our human right. When coupled with following our intuition, our soul guidance, we have the ability to not only gain more wisdom, but to flourish as we transform ourselves into an even better version of our selves. When we recognize something within us which is causing a repeated pattern, it is our soul speaking to us, encouraging us to learn the lesson.  Recognizing it is the first step in listening to our soul guidance to use our free will to help us gain wisdom through releasing and healing.  Once recognized, we can accept it.  Yes, this is something within us and/or something which happened to us, and accepting it allows us to understand it better.  Understanding it provides us the information we need to then work on releasing it and healing from it.

Wisdom, balance, and peace result from using our internal guidance system coupled with free choice to do the work and learn our lessons.  It brings a freedom where we can now experience life more fully & joyfully. We are awakening to our true inner selves, since we are letting go of old ideas, beliefs, thoughts and feelings which have been holding us back from living a life we love, without constraints.  A life not defined by ego and fear, but by pure Love, Joy & Light.  Then, the incredible opportunities start coming into our lives as we live our real authenticity. These opportunities are even better than you can imagine, as the magical energy of the Divine now has space to work for you and with you, helping you manifest the life you dream about into reality.

Namaste!

Create your destiny.

You are free to create the destiny you wish to live.  Slide1
You have free will, and as such, are not the victim of your circumstances. You have the key to unlock the potential within you, by removing limiting thoughts, and not defining yourself by your mistakes, fears, vulnerabilities, weaknesses and/or scars. You are free to unburden yourself of these and of any victimhood mentality you may have. You have the ability to open your own doors and fly free. You have the power within you to release what may be burdening you.

You were born to live a full, happy life, with friends, fun and family. You are here to live your purpose, part of which is releasing old baggage we have been carrying around for lifetimes. It is through this process you can create the life you wish to live. Do you wish to be happy? Do you wish to be loving? Do you wish to be kind, compassionate and understanding? Do you wish to create prosperity? Do you wish to have an intimate partner to share your life? Do you wish to have a solid family? Do you wish to create your own business? All of these things are within your reach. You simply need to let go of the illusions of your self-imposed limitations. Discover why you have had the life you have had and release it. Explore why you may have made a mistake and learn from it so you can grow into a better version of you.

Everything is for a reason. Nothing in our lives are to punish us from a mistake in this lifetime or another. Explore the illusions of lack and fear, and let them go.  Carrying around guilt, shame, jealousy, angers, worry, anxiety and any other lower vibrational feelings bring on distress and illness. They bring the immune systems down. They keep you from living the enormous potential which is everyone’s Divine right.

Remember, energy attracts like energy.  It doesn’t matter if humans define the energy as “good” or “bad”.  The Universe recognizes only energy.  Your thoughts & feelings are energy. Your words are energy. Your actions are energy. If you think or believe you are somehow flawed, you will attract situations and experiences which continue to fuel that belief.  However, if you think or believe you are wonderful, you will attract that type of energy.  If you believe you are loving and beautiful, this is the energy you are attracting. This is not ego-driven beauty or love.  This is Divine self-love, self-worth, self-confidence and self-respect. Our energy creates our life. Our repetitive patterns are signals to us to either continue doing what we are doing, or to change it if we do not like the kind of life we have been living.

Recognize and be aware of the incredible being you are and the amazing things you can manifest. Remember, the fear is way worse than the reality. Let the fear go, face the reality and allow yourself to transform into the person you wish to be, the person you know you can be, and live your fullest life creating and manifesting all of your dreams. I believe in you….it is time for you to believe in you, too.

If you would like guidance in your life transforming endeavors, I would be honored to help you.

Namaste!

Embrace Change

Embrace your changes with a de-LIGHT-full attitude. Slide1

Change is meant to help us transform our being into a stronger, better & wiser version of ourselves. It’s meant to assist our awakening & evolving into an even more beautiful expression of our selves & our souls. Therefore, change needs to be accepted with de-LIGHT, joy and love, believing and trusting in our journey. It may not always be easy, but change is a Divine purpose, to help heal us from the past or past lives, and move us into a more beautiful expression of our truth and authenticity.

Metamorphosis in the Human fashion can be a challenge, yet we are meant to embrace it and learn the lessons with joy, moving into new heights. The nature of the butterfly already inherently knows how to change from the caterpillar. We as humans also instinctually know how to change as the wisdom already exists within us. We need to choose to look within, become aware and accept what needs to change, so we can transform an aspect we no longer require or wish to have as a trait.  Many characteristics we have been born with are meant for our survival, yet also as a lesson for growth.  We may have come into this world with a certain personality trait, fear or aspects, or acquired one during this lifetime, which is not necessarily attractive, yet, is there to help us understand our lives, and life in general, while allowing us to modify or release it. These traits, fears and aspects are all part of the inherent wisdom within us which is part 0f our soul mission for awakening and transformation. We are meant to learn about this characteristic, to recognize and accept it within ourselves and others, realizing it on a deeper level to feel, deal and heal.  Acceptance leads to adjustment, understanding, healing and releasing, allowing us to become an even better version of ourselves. Choosing to change,  we can transform ourselves each time we recognize an aspect of this trait may be surfacing again, leading us into deeper transformation, where this trait no longer appears in reaction to a situation. Since, we have chosen to completely release it, it leads us into a different reaction, one which may need review for transformation, or one which suits us much better for the rest of our lives.

For instance, if we are quick to judge, we may find it causes relationship problems. Judgement can lead to misunderstandings on both sides of a conversation.  Misunderstandings can escalate causing disruption and dissension in our lives. However, if we look at why we are judging someone, we can recognize, accept and understand the reasoning behind it.  If we have judged someone as being too overbearing, perhaps the underlying reason is we ourselves are fearful of exerting our own inner truths, or maybe we haven’t created sufficient boundaries where we feel strong enough to compassionately deal with certain people. This can lead to discovering why we do not feel strong enough.  Maybe we don’t feel strong enough because an adult in our lives would not allow us to speak up.  This certainly caused a disruption in life. This one situation may have caused us to judge others for speaking their truth, where we felt we were not allowed to do so. Looking deeper and deeper into any trait will help us get to the root cause, leading to the understanding. The understanding leads us to being able to feel the feelings we buried, which then allows the healing and releasing.  And, then we can cultivate strength and courage in speaking our inner truth without feeling we aren’t allowed to speak up.

It can be a struggle to let go of certain ideas, beliefs and opinions we have either been born with or have learned through life. It is difficult to look within and determine the root causes because they can bring up old feelings which do not necessarily feel very good. Yet, these life struggles help cultivate our strength & courage, our inner power, to guide us to healing and transforming into fulfilling lives, happily recognizing & accepting the shining Soul Light within. Thus, we can live more fully into our soul missions.

During our human lifetimes we shift into new phases of life, which is in essence change. We are born and change as we grow, learning along the way to communicate, care for ourselves and understand life. As we grow older, the learning, understanding and growing  does not stop. In adulthood, growth is deeper awareness and understanding of ourselves. It’s becoming more open to tackle what needs to be healed, helping us evolve into the fullest expression of our unique human manifestation of the Divine. Each of us is unique and perfect in the stages of life we find ourselves in this moment, with the wisdom & knowledge we have experienced thus far, to use for the continuation of our souls’ journeys and missions, assimilating what we need for our next situation, experience or lifetime.

Be de-LIGHT-ed you can transform into a brighter, happier and more fulfilling version of you.

If you wish to follow my blog, you will be included in the monthly group Reiki energy session, given on the 1st of the following month. You only need to intend to be included to receive the energy when you are ready.  The energy will then flow to you, helping you in any way you currently need for you.
