My Backwards Journey to Finding Self Love

My search for love last year inadvertently sent me on a mission to turn my search inward to discover my own self. It allowed me to return to love, because I have come to understand that we cannot truly love others in the way they deserve to be loved until we fully love ourselves.

My journey to find love truly became a journey to find myself, and the love I held in my heart all along. By choosing to give my heart to others and find that sense of love and worth through them, I was robbing myself of the Divine gift of self love (and simultaneously removing the chance for my beloved to be truly loved unconditionally).

How I Found My Sacred Song

My spiritual awakening has quite literally taken flight the past three weeks. Birds have been interacting with me to the degree that I know something significant is transpiring; somehow they are here to deliver messages, but what?

I struggled as to what the meaning might be, but as I often do, I chose to surrender this to Spirit by asking for the answers to be revealed to me. And then I put it out of my mind and let go.

Let Your Seeds Bloom

I have been in tizzy of turmoil the past few weeks as I pulled back on my reigns and halted my full-steam plans to reflect and reevaluate. I do not believe in coincidences, and I am certain that the timing of Mercury Retrograde (and four others) was Divinely timed in order for me to slow my perfectionistic roll and surrender to what was moving through me and around me.

I discovered if I eased into the very tumultuous energy by surrendering with grace, this time could work in my favor, if only I let go. The art of letting go is one I am still trying on for size as my nature is to hold tightly to control. But as fate would have it, I discovered I was approaching my Ego and need to hold on all wrong. I have started to embrace my heart in a way that allows it to lead the way I live through decisions, thoughts, feelings and actions, but that what truly shook me awake is the notion of embracing fear.

Make Friends With Fear

As my journey continues to take me further off into the unknown, I have grappled with fear. We all deal with fear.

Without conscious practice and acknowledgement, fear can derail us from following our heart.

My spiritual awakening is paying off as I learn to work with fear rather than bury it (or worse—ignore it altogether).

When I look to the sky
And to the clouds,
All is well.
When I look to the stars
and to the moon,
All is well.
When I look to the
Trees and the birds
And the blooms,
All is well.
All is well when
Nature is upon me,
When the Heavens
Meet the Earth
In every spectacular
Breeze of the wind,
Rustle of the leaves,
Stigma of a rose,
And chirp of a bird.
All is well because
The force behind
The cumulus clouds
And the rainbows
And the butterflies
Is surely the force
Moving inside of me.
And in that space,
Where I feel the whole
World move through me,
I know in fact
All is well.

The mockingbird sings
And I flock to her song.
She sings of the beauty
And influences around her
Yet she still stands tall
And fearless as her own
Divinely created self.
It is I who takes note
Of the spirit behind
This magnificent messenger,
I am in fact a creature
Of my influences and experiences
And yet I sing my own sacred song.
I am not my past even
Though it gave me a stage
For which I learned to
Valiantly sing with abandon
Of a love so divinely inspired
That my heart’s melody
Is a heavenly medley
Of the spirit within,
Calling me forth
To fearlessly forge
My purposeful path
And unleash my inner
Song for humanity to hear.
Yes, my mockingbird sings
With a powerful voice ready
To shine unto others
The light in her heart.

Dream It, Feet It, Expect It

In honor of Dr. Wayne W. Dyer’s 76th Birthday today (Happy Birthday, Wayne!), I felt compelled to share his wisdom on manifestation. Dr. Dyer is one of the great Ascended Masters who lives long beyond his Earth years, as his Infinite Love, wisdom and teaching will continue to touch our world for centuries to come.

Dr. Dyer is the first truly Spiritual being and teacher that I discovered along my path; my dear cousin gifted me two of his books, Your Sacred Self and There’s a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem. I now own almost every one of his books. I vehemently suggest his work; he is a Master of the Spirit, and his teaching will change your life (it absolutely changed mine).

Monday Mantra—You Are Powerful

As I’ve been writing about honoring our heart’s desires and dreams, it is no coincidence that I pulled a card with this message on it today.
Know that you are powerful beyond measure. Your thoughts, feelings and actions create your reality. Choose to attract everything you can imagine by embodying a mindset of positivity and exuberant love.
By being love and sending out that love into the universe, you will surely attract that love back to you in all the forms of abundance you seek.
Hold the intention this week to acknowledge your less-than-loving thoughts and then diffuse them with thoughts of love. A positive thought quickly distinguishes a fear-based thought by raising the frequency it holds.
Determine the practices that keep you grounded in love, be it yoga, long walks, soul friendship, or meditation. Whatever it may be, hold the intention of love and it will be done.
As always, my favorite means of grounding in love and positivity is an attitude of gratitude. Calm any anxiety, worries or self-doubts by setting your awareness in the present moment.
YOU are powerful, dear one. Repeat this mantra until your heart begins to speak louder than your mind.
I am more powerful than I realize.
Sending you all my Light and Love on this beautiful Monday.

Trust in Our Dreams

Have you ever sat in stillness to contemplate your dreams?

I have been on a wild journey of discovery that planted me right at the doorstep of my own dream: to serve others with the full expression of my true self—an intuitive healer and empowerment coach.

On a cool October evening, as I experienced the super moon eclipse from my outdoor yoga class, the instructor gave me a piece of advice: if a dream is placed on our heart, we are powerful enough to manifest it.

I am Human—My Yoga Journey

Yoga is my everything. And Yoga for Humans is spreading the word on the humanity behind yoga. I love how they portray the imperfections behind the practice, simply because yoga is not about perfection at all.

It took me years to get on my mat again after three attempted classes circa 2009 frightened the living daylight out of me; my body said we aren’t having this. Not one bit.
