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.

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.

Secrets of Manifestation

I returned to one of my favorite yoga classes this week: crystal healing yin with Natanya Washburn of Lapis and Lavender. I hadn’t attended her class for some time, and I knew I was in for a delicious treat.

With the Super New Moon today, it is a perfect setting for manifesting intentions and charting new beginnings. Natanya shared a philosophy that deeply resonated in my heart. I am here to pass along her wisdom nugget along with my experience of manifesting my wildest dreams.

Seeds of Intention

My chosen word of the year is sprout. I have the intention to grow and evolve using the foundation I set the past year. With only a few months into 2016, I have noticed the incredible impact my word has already made.

I began a new practice every night, at the suggestion of my wise friend, Sharri, to review the positive intentions that I set forth throughout the day. And to carry out my word of 2015, gratitude, I begin each day with all that I am grateful for. This sets the most wonderful tone that keeps me in a place of love all day. I find just how much my intentions change when I am steeped in gratitude.

Manifest Your Dreams

maifest-our-dreams

As I lay under the stars and felt the crisp fall air hit my skin, I knew I was exactly where I was supposed to be. Even though my yoga class was canceled unexpectedly, there was a yoga teacher training retreat taking place that welcomed me with open arms (the yogi way).

I struggled through tight joints and muscles, and I breathed my way through the asanas. The intensity of the week off my mat jolted me while I bowed in deep gratitude for this special class. When the instructor, Mary Clare (MC), said it was no coincidence we were all here practicing together under the night sky, I knew synchronicity had been at the helm of this blessed meeting.

As we flowed through asanas, the slow, steady pace of the class mirrored my intention to slow way down the past few weeks. MC delivered a message straight from the cosmos that was shining exuberantly on us:

If a dream is placed on your heart, you are powerful enough to manifest it.

-Mary Clare “MC” Sweet

This struck a deep chord in my soul as a strong sense of purpose recently entered my heart, part of a truly divine path that led the way to this moment. My dream realization grew out of my life calling. This dream could only have come to me after the heart opening work I did this year. I opened up the depths of my authentic soul’s purpose and my dream was born out of my newly created space.

With great power comes great responsibly, or so they say, and I feel a deep calling to rely on the path I’ve been on for the last 30 years to fuel my next 30. I am grateful for the sense of purpose I now have, yet fear is always creeping in, taking up residence in my mind. Fear’s ugly stepsister, impatience, is always right there with it.

The universe doesn’t put anything on your heart that you aren’t strong enough to handle. I repeated this truth to myself during class, and granted it the space to sink in deeper. It wasn’t much longer before MC shared my all-time favorite quote from Marianne Williamson:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Fear is always going to be a player. You determine how much court time you give it. Whenever I get tangled up in fear and doubt how I will reach my dreams, I slow down, breathe and try to think of one small, attainable step. I choose to be in my power and boldly step toward my dream. Today, that step was coming to yoga, forcing myself to do the one thing I could take control of and feel empowered by. And thank God I did; the reward was nothing short of miraculous. As I allowed the waxing moon to fill me with its glorious light and love, I lay in awe of the day’s God nudge.

Synchronicity will always put you in the right place at the right time to further your true path. It is up to YOU to decide if you will step into your loving place of knowing or shudder to your shadow side of fear and belittle your heart with cowardice. It’s always your choice. You have the power to decide every single moment of every day. What will you decide to do today?
