Oh, The Memories!

Have a lot of memories been coming to the surface for you lately?  What have you been doing with them?  Memories are part of a larger story that you’re trying to process.  Maybe it's time for you to do things differently, or are secrets from the past being revealed?  Anything is possible.
 
Everything coming to the surface is providing you with information to move you forward.  Nothing happens by accident.
 
What ghosts are coming to the surface for you?  As I sit down to write this, I’m watching the Fire Department do a controlled burn on a house across the street.  Information that I didn’t know about that house has been coming to my attention all week.  Future plans have been coming out and plans have been made, but what about the emotional component?  That’s also been a part of the process.  I’m remembering what that house was like when I was a kid and how to relates to my memories.
 
I can’t change the decisions that others have made no matter how much I may want to.  Eventually, the house will become part of the memory.  The land will have a new path forward.
 
This is what your life is going through right now.  Some part of your past is burning to the ground.  There’s an emotional component that you need to process and plan for the next phase of your life to begin.
 
Memories can help guide you forward if you allow them to and not just live in the memory.  The past can be used to assist you, but for so many, it tends to stop you in your tracks and swallow you whole.  Allow your memories to move you forward.

Happiness Is….

What is the definition of happiness to you?  According to Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, the definition of happiness is “a state of well-being and contentment, joy.”  But what does that mean to you?
 
Happiness is something that you strive for.  You want to be happy in your life, but what do you mean when you break it down?  You may not even know the answer yourself.  It can be harder than you may think to define.
 
Once you’ve defined what happiness means to you, how do you get there?  The next obstacle.  Part of the reason why so many people are unhappy is we don’t know how to get there.  You keep trying over and over again.  You may get close, but it can seem to slip right through your fingers.
 
It can be hard to believe that happiness is just as much a state of being as sadness.  Sadness just seems to creep up on you and take over, but can happiness do the same?  It can if you allow it.  That can be a hard concept to grasp.  Happiness is a state of being.  If you want to be happy, then work towards being happy.  It can be done, but it may take some effort.  The negative some days seem so much easier to believe the positive.  Happiness is the same way.
 
How badly do you want it?  Sit down and make a list of all the things that make you happy.  Once you’ve done that see if you come up with any common themes. Take those common themes and see if you can develop a game plan to bring a little more happiness into your life.  If any time of year can bring more happiness, it’s summer.
 
Work from your list each day.  It’s all about creating a pattern.  Bring in the emotions you want and create them in your life.

Clean Up!

Have you been cleaning a lot recently?  Throwing things away that are broken?  Donating or selling what you no longer use?
 
Over the last year, people have been cleaning the house.  To the point where donation centers have put limitations and reminders on what they will and won’t take.
 
You may be one of the fortunate ones where cleaning up is easy.  You’ll periodically go through your belongings and toss what you don’t need anymore.  For another group of you, everything has meaning.  You can’t get rid of that, so and so owned it or so and so gave it to you.  Everything is connected to memory.  Maybe you fall somewhere in between the two extremes.
 
I’ve been resistant while the mass cleaning of people’s spaces has been going on.  Why might you ask?  Partly because of the amount of time that I would have to spend, but also because I didn’t have the energy to look through everything.  This past week, the energy shifted.  I knew it was time and I didn’t have any more excuses.
 
To manifest what you want, sometimes you must get rid of what you don’t want.  You must make space.  Making space for what you want somedays can be a challenge, but it’s necessary.
 
If your life is already full, do you truly have space for something new?  Only you can answer that question.  For now, I’ll continue making space a little bit at a time.  It may time longer, but there’s nothing that says I need to tackle it all at once.  I just have to do it.  Just cleaning up a part of the space, feels lighter.  There’s room opening for something new to enter.  Not sure what that might be yet, but it’s a start.  The intention is there.
 
Manifestation is a multi-step process.  The step that isn’t always mentioned is the decluttering process.  Yes, it is a process.  It’s not as easy as just cleaning for many.  Allow the process to unfold as it’s mean to.
 
Where are you in your decluttering process?   Let me know. Do you want to know more, click here to book a discovery session or an appointment.

Are You Feeling Intense?

Have you been feeling intense energies lately?  It’s not just you.

 There’s an intensity to your needs and communication.  This most recent full moon may have brought something to light that you’ve been working on.  Maybe you’ve been waiting to make changes, but life keeps throwing you curveballs, and you just can’t keep up.

You could be grieving for the loss of a loved one or for the way life previously was.  There are times when you just want things to be easy, to go smoothly and no matter how much you try, sometimes the energy doesn’t go your way.

You try to set a boundary and you can’t keep it.  You set aside time for self-care and something else keeps infringing on it.  

When the energy is this intense, it’s trying to tell you something.  It wants your attention.  It wants you to adjust.

Look at where the uncomfortable feelings arise.  That’s where the magic is!  You may have emotions to work through that get you to the other side, but you can do it.  You can get there.  You just need to have faith that you can.

Working your way through the darkness just sucks!  You’ll often go off on detours and work through subjects that you’ve done previously.  A new layer will pop to the surface.

It’s ok.  You don’t need to do it all at once, but the energy wants you to start.  Come up with a plan.  Listen to what people talk to you about.

Don’t just react.  Think about how it makes you feel.  You’re feeling that way so you can move on.  You can feel better.  You can feel empowered.

Step 1 is to work through the intensity. Step 2 is to plan and Step 3 is to execute.

It sounds so easy, but it never is.  What’s the intense energy bringing to the surface for you?  What does that look like for you?  Let me know. Do you want to know more, click here to book a discovery session or an appointment.

Out of Balance

Is your life out of balance?  Most likely the answer is yes.  You live in a society that is based on achievement and how much you can do in a day. 

You’re taught from an early age that you have to make sacrifices.  Life isn’t always easy.  When things come to you easily, you tend to discount them.  Why do you do this?  It could be for several reasons.  But that most likely is fear.  Fear of what the quiet will tell you.  Fear of not having enough.  Fear of standing out because you’re not doing what everyone else does.  Fear of looking stupid. 

I tend to pack my days full.  I have classes to attend, books to read, work to do.  I’m working to improve my mind and create a new way of life for myself.  It will only be temporary, but so far that has never been the case.  In one of my astrology classes, I learned that a shadow side for me is to do, do, do.  Boy did that one hit home.  That’s exactly what I do.  Relaxation and I have never had a good relationship.  Even when I do take time to “relax”, it includes reading or watching television.  I should be outside!  I feel better when I do, but life gets in the way.

Life balance isn’t easy.  It takes work.  It’s not what’s expected of you.  If you decide to not follow the “normal” path, you will probably get some pushback whether it be from yourself or those around you.

It’s easy to say that I should do this, but it can be hard to implement.  Your life is craving balance, and you’re not alone.  Mine is too.  It’s time to stop doing, doing, doing, and go, go, go, and just be.  What that looks like for you or me, I can’t tell you.  My first step is to say that I need more balance in my life.  That could mean that you take that walk-in nature or maybe you do something for fun, like just dance for no reason at all.

It's time to achieve more balance. Let me know. Do you want to know more, click here to book a discovery session or an appointment.

Curveball Coming!

Did you get a curveball thrown your way?  Something that you completely didn’t expect.  Or maybe something that you’ve been trying to avoid, and you received some news about.
 
It can be upsetting or challenging to get some news, and other times you’re jumping for joy that it happened.  Either option can change your life for better or worse.  Sometimes what you need is to take a step back and gain a little perspective.  Or maybe you’re being triggered and meant to confront it, so you can address it and become more empowered in your life.
 
Triggers are a challenge.  They’re meant to teach you something, but at that moment all you can do is think or feel what’s happening.
 
You don’t want to deal with it right now.  It’s not the time.  It’s not the place.  You have other things to do.  There are a number of reasons why.  Life will normally trigger you at the worst possible moment.  A conversation that will leave you emotional right before you need to be somewhere.  A difficult moment right in front of your co-workers.
 
You don’t want to show emotion in these moments.  You don’t want to seem defeated, angry, or name an emotion, but you’re meant to feel the emotion.  The emotion is what will help you to process the trigger.
 
Give yourself time to process the trigger, develop an action plan and gain some perspective.  Confronting your triggers is the only way for you to truly become empowered.
 
Triggers aren’t mean to be an annoyance, they just happen that way.  Triggers are meant to move you forward.  Triggers are meant to move you forward.  If you choose to ignore your trigger, that’s ok too, but it will come back.  Until you confront it, it will always return.  And the next thing it will be a little more annoying.

What Did You Find Out?

Did you have a realization?  Any epiphany this last week?  If you did, great!   If not, that is ok.  You might not have put the pieces together or there could be another reason altogether.
 
But let’s speak about when you did have the realization.  Did pieces seem to come together?  Do you know you next steps?  Maybe not quite yet.  It’s a process after all.  Every person is different.  Sometimes you’re drip-fed information.  Other times it just dawns on you.
 
The bigger question is what do you do with the information?  It depends on what it is.  Maybe you’ve learned something about yourself and how you’ve behaved in the past.  You can take that information and change how you react in the present moment.  Maybe you’ve kept yourself from revealing something in the past, so you work up the courage to reveal it now.  You might not be ready yet, but you’re ready to work on it.  Wherever you choose to start is what’s best for you.
 
The point is that you make a shift.  You use the epiphany to help you move forward towards the life or wish you desire.  We don’t have realizations to do nothing with them.  We’re meant to make adjustments.  We’re not supposed to have static lives.  Evolution is important to who you are as a person.  It can change your life if you allow it.
 
Have you been having lots of dreams lately?  Your messages could be coming through your dreams or a song that you hear repeatedly on the radio.  We’re given the information; we don’t always realize what it means.
 
If you’re still having trouble, talk it out with someone else.  Maybe that conversation will lead you where you’re meant to go.
 
Use what you’ve found out to take steps towards your goals.  You can achieve them.

What’s Coming Up?

What’s rising to the surface for you this week?  It’s coming up for a reason.  Don’t just stuff it back down.  You tend to push those “bad” emotions down but isn’t the time to do that.  Become aware of what your emotions are trying to tell you.
 
Awareness is everything.  It’s the path forward to a new life.  Are you angry?  Don’t just lash out.  What are you angry about?  How does it relate to your past?  It’s always connected to the past.  It rarely has anything to do with the present moment.
 
When someone texts you asking questions.  Maybe it’s questions you’ve already answered.  Does it piss you off!  Maybe it’s because your boundaries are being infringed upon.  Maybe it’s because you feel like no one listens to you.  Take a step back before you tell the person where to go and how to get there.
 
To get to the bottom of the emotion you have to be aware.  Aware of what that emotion is trying to tell you.  Emotions aren’t the only thing that can be trying to get your attention.
 
Maybe you’ve been having lots of dreams recently.  What are they trying to tell you?  Maybe you’ve been going about an obstacle the wrong way.  Your dream could be providing you with instructions to adjust your tactics.
 
Are you the type of person that likes to skip to the end of the book and find out what happens?  Life isn’t like that.  You can’t just skip to the end.  You must go through the messy stuff to get to the good part.
 
You have to become aware of what you’re thinking.  Aware of what you’re feeling.  Why do you think or feel that way?  It’s all a part of what you’re learning right now, in this moment.  You’re meant to dig in.  Uncover the secrets and expose them to the light,

It’s Time To…

What do you want 2021 to look like?  A lot of the structures in your life were demolished in 2020.  You can build something new.  Something different.  Are you ready?
 
It’s so easy to get stuck in the mindset of poor me.  Things never seem to work out for me.  But you don’t have to live there.  You can create something new.  Something different.  You can build a life that you love.
 
Maybe you’ll be one of the fortunate ones and with a snap of your fingers, it will be different.  But let me tell you a secret, it rarely happens that way.  You must process your old life first.  How did you end up where you are?  It’s not an easy process.  There’s a reason that people stay the way they are.  It requires work and effort.  How bad do you want it?
 
Are you willing to take the leap?  Are you willing to put in the work?  It would be easier if things did just magically happen.  You must demonstrate how badly you want it. 
 
The lessons that you’ve experienced have made you who you are.  You lived through them for a reason.  They’re part of your life’s journey, but you don’t have to stay there.
 
We can get guidance from our intuition, oracle/tarot cards, astrology, numerology, etc., but ultimately you have the final say over how your life turns out. It’s yours to live as you wish.  So, what are you going to do?
 
Every change starts with a small step.  You can do this if you want to.
 
It’s never easy to move past your fear or swallow your pride, but there’s so much joy on the other side knowing that you did something that terrified you and it turned out ok.
 
A leap of faith is challenging, but you must have hope.  Be optimistic that your world can be better.  It can be what you want it to be, the effort is up to you.
 
Do you ever have a thought that doesn’t leave?  A thought that says you should do this.  Start there.  You don’t have to change everything overnight.  Work through the pain and see what lies on the other side on your timetable.
 
What effort are you willing to put into changing your life?   Let me know. Do you want to know more, click here to book a discovery session or an appointment.

Wait! Before you Speak…

After the events in Washington, D.C. in January, there’re seems to be a lot of blame going on.  One side is saying they should be heard, there’s evidence to prove their point and the other side is saying what was said to them 4 years ago, we won let’s move on.
 
The major issue is that you generally like to feel that you’re right.  What you believe couldn’t possibly be wrong?  So, you start to defend your beliefs.  You go after the person whose beliefs are different and attack.  Never asking, or per chance you did ask, to see why they hold those beliefs to begin with.  In truth, we seem quite polarized, but if we had an honest discussion, we might come to see we have more in common then we thought.
 
In order for the people of the United States to change, we need to each be willing to look at ourselves.  To look at our beliefs.  To listen to each other and not just to listen to respond but truly listen and hear what is being said.
 
Two wrongs don’t make a right.  So, what is right?  That’s challenging to say in a moment such as this.  You could say that you should be more emphatic, and it might be a good place to start.  The Golden Rule, to treat others as you wish to be treated.  We’ve gotten used to being anonymous and spouting off what you believe on social media.  It’s quite different if you have to look at person and see the hurt your words have caused.
 
You will often pick and choose facts to fit your narrative.  It doesn’t make it any more or less true.  You should be looking for the truth in any situation.  Not simply what should be true.
 
Right now, the world needs a little more kindness.  A little more compassion.   If only you took the time to live in another’s shoes, might we make progress and not be so divided?  You have a choice.  Would you rather be right or understand?
 
Each of us needs to learn some understanding.  Maybe it’s time to take a step back.  Think about your words before tossing them about or use them as a weapon.  Think before you speak.
