In the Flow

Saturday was a great day. I could tell from the moment that I got up that I was right where I needed to be. My mind was clear and my energy was good, I even had tea instead of coffee first thing.

I didn’t have elaborate plans for the day, but decided to take things as they came following the little suggestions from spirit. I did a bit of house work, read another chapter in my new book, meditated, and journaled a bit. I invited my sister to go shopping and have lunch to use a gift card I had been given for Christmas from my aunt since she also had one too. She didn’t get back to me until lunch was upon us, but we decided to meet up later in the afternoon.

On my way to meet my sister I saw a license plate that had the numbers 222. That’s my number for the right place right time, or being in the flow. When I got to the store that the gift card was from, I waited in my car until she showed up, and I was so excited that she didn’t have my niece with her. Not that I don’t love spending time with my niece, but it meant that we could really just enjoy each other’s company and shop!

I found a great candle to spend my gift card on that just happened to be some of my favorite scents. Lavender, Bergamot, and Oak. I have never seen that combination before. When we went to the register to pay, my sister was a part of their email listing and got an additional discount! She had gone over the amount of the gift card, but this meant that she only had to pay 2 dollars extra. Score!

We decided to go the the shoe store that was next door. They were moving locations because of a lease war on their space, but all their clearance shoes were an additional 30% off. I found a great pair of Clarks boots to replace my old ones. They were a deal at $40.00, that’s more than half price, and I even got a pair of slides for my brother that lives with me. As I was standing in line, a new cashier came up and ushered me over to her. I could tell she had great energy, and we seemed to click. My brother’s shoes were on a sale rack, but turned out not to be on sale. The cashier said, “Don’t worry I will hook you up”, and voila I got them for 14.99, when they were originally $34.99. God put me in the right place at the right time, with the right cashier.

Things seem to just work out when you are in the flow, following your intuition, and bringing your authentic energy to people and places that need it.

That wasn’t the last of the deals for the day though. We decided to keep going, and visit some of our favorite clothing shops. I found a jacket that I loved and when I went to check out, I had a bonus waiting for me, another $20.00 off. I couldn’t believe my luck.

I just wanted to share with you this story, because it shows that when you follow your intuition and things are in alignment, things just work out. There will be help on your path, rewards, and messages. Not to mention that you can help other people as well. Who knows, my interaction with the cashier, and the fact that I was so grateful to her for giving me such a deep discount when she didn’t have to lifted her spirits too. It was a good interaction. In fact, all the interactions I had on Saturday were good ones. I even heard from someone that I haven’t talked to in a while.

Sometimes you just wake up in the flow, and other days it’s harder to get there, but generally, I have discovered that when you follow the gentle little nudges from God, good things happen. When you get that little nudge to hold a door open, to invite someone to coffee, or wear that shirt that you’ve been saving for the right moment, do it. I promise the results my be just what you’re looking for, but definitely what you need.

Serendipity – Hug from an Angel

Today I am going through some tough emotional things. I put on some frequency music while I was working. You can find it on youtube. This one was called Hug from an Angel. I have linked the song below, if you interested in a hug from an angel too. Something told me to look down as I was sitting there and what do I see? A feather.

I know what you’re thinking, but I don’t have birds. I do have feather pillows, but they have those zip on pillow protectors. Of course the tears streamed down my face at that point. We are never alone, and that is such a comfort to me, and today I need it.

Peace or Apathy

The holidays used to be a very busy time for me. I won’t go into the details here, because it’s a long story, but my life 10 years ago was full of traditions and people to spend my holidays with. Indeed life in general was full of distractions and tasks to get done. Little people to keep alive and happy, a husband, a household, and a job.

There was not a lot of me time to be had, but in the last 10 years people and things have slowly been leaving my life. At first this was anxiety inducing. I defined myself by all these things and my title as mother, wife, daughter, etc. When they slowly started fading away, I didn’t know who I was, and this was really hard for me.

I tried to fill up the space with social media, dating, projects etc. I felt bored, and alone. Nothing seemed to fulfill me.

Then, I started this spiritual journey, and began to discover the truth. Things and people were being removed from my life so that I could discover myself. I had prayed to discover a deep understanding of who I was, and I realize now that God gave me the tools and the space to do that. I am so very grateful.

I know that I still have a lot more to learn about myself, but I also know that I have the power to manifest what I truly desire. I wanted to know myself, and I am getting there. It took me a while to understand exactly what was happening and why, but now that I do, I am so grateful. The inner peace that I feel is amazing. I am even almost completely off the anxiety meds that I have been on for 20 years.

Some days I mistake this peace with apathy. It takes awhile for your subconscious to get on board, but I am being patient with it these days.

Just remember, when you ask God/Universe for big changes in your life, and then world as you know if starts to crumble, that the old will need to be removed for the new to have space. God will take the straightest route. Your intuition will be your GPS.

Let it Be vs Let it Go

Let it be = Acceptance

Let it go = Choice

How can two letters change the way I view things so much?

When someone tells you to let something go, it requires a choice. It also infers that you are holding onto something that isn’t for you. There’s fault in this statement. I have seen value in something that doesn’t have value and for someone that has unhealed traumas might trigger guilt and shame.

When someone tells you to let something be, it requires a whole new process. It’s not really a choice, but an evaluation of what it is to you, and how it fits into to your life. It’s acceptance of what is, and if it’s in alignment with you. By accepting what it is, you remove the control and allow yourself and whatever it is to be what it is. This removes the shame and guilt, for the need to find fault in it.

This also allows you to be in acceptance of yourself. Here’s where I am, I might be somewhere different tomorrow, but this is who I am right now, and that is okay. We all grow and change our whole lives, and what we are in vibration with today, might not be what aligns tomorrow. If we accept and let it be what it is and your relationship to it, then there is room for growth.

I have to admit it was hard for communicate this in words as I felt it so strongly in my heart during my meditation this morning. I hope I did it justice.

Mirroring

I have read so many articles and books in the past 3 years about people mirroring each other, but the truth is that your external life mirrors how you feel internally.

I was just journaling as I normally do at the end of my day, and I stumbled upon something very interesting. I was rambling on in my journal about feeling alone, and not having a “family” of my own to build traditions and a life. Of course, this time of year brings these issues to light for a lot of us.

Don’t get me wrong I have lovely friends and extended family that I enjoy so much, but I’m not married and I have a challenging relationship with my children. It leaves me on my own a lot especially during traditional family times.

I don’t need to wait until those things come into my life. I know they will when the time is right. I don’t have to see this alone time as a bad thing and I certainly don’t need to wait to start making plans for my life.

What I’m desiring externally is what I ‘m really craving from myself. I can give myself love, support, and a plan for the future. Things that a relationship and family of my own will fit into.

When all you really want at the end of the day is someone who loves you unconditionally, doesn’t judge you for your mistakes, and allows you to be authentically yourself; you can be that person for yourself. Be your own biggest cheerleader.

Believe

In meditation today I asked my guides what message was most import to deliver on my blog today and I was handed a list.

  • Believe in yourself
  • Do everything with intention
  • Love your life
  • Enjoy the journey

Easy right? Is it though? No for most of us. If you are anything like me, you find moments where this couldn’t be farther from the truth. Let’s unpack this to do list shall we.

What does is mean to believe in yourself? It means you have to stop listening to that voice in your head that lists all the reasons why you can’t have what you want (that second piece of chocolate), why you’ve failed every other time (so why even try again), and why you aren’t worthy of the dreams and goals you have for yourself. This will take more than a moment to get control of, but the first step is recognizing the voice. The second is to recognize you are observing the voice say those things, therefore, you are not this voice. You are an observer, this observer is your soul. The true essence of who you are. If you want more information on this concept a good book is The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer. When you have discovered the pure essence of who you really are, then it’s easy to believe in yourself.

Next up, Do everything with intention. When you wake up in the morning what is your intention, I bet that most of you don’t even think about this. I know for a fact that I don’t open my eyes and set an intention for the day. Think what a difference it would make if we did. What if you woke up and decided today I am going to be happy. You have a purpose and a goal. When obstacles alight your path, you can make a decision to choose happiness, to change your perspective on what ever comes your way and not let it derail your happiness. Before you walk into that meeting set the intention that you are going to remain focused on the discussions being had in that room, and allow your brain and your mind to be present. Think how much more productive you that meeting would be. When you walk through the door at home after a long hard day, set and intention to be present with your family.

It’s easy to look at your life and see all the flaws. I have a job I don’t like, a house that needs improvements, or crazy relatives that I have to deal with, etc. With a change of perspective you can learn to really love your life, and when you’re ready, make the changes you desire. Instead of looking at the things that aren’t so great, look at all the things you’re grateful for. You may have crazy relatives, but you have the best friends you could ask for. Your house might need improvements, but you have a roof over your head and a bed to sleep in every night. You get the idea. Focus on the places in your life that are abundant and more abundance will follow.

The last thing on the list is to enjoy the journey. It’s important to understand that life is a journey. Nothing stays the same, we start at one point and we will end up at another. During this time we will have experiences, hardships, celebrations, and adventures. We will learn and grow, and our views will change as we age. There is always something new coming into our lives. We cannot control this and we do ourselves a disservice when we try. Embrace the journey, enjoy it. That’s when the magic happens.

Channeled Message – Self Worth/Relationships

A very direct and very important message from the divine source…

Stand your ground in matters of the heart that involve your self worth. Nothing good comes from backing down on this point. It matters that both of you respect and honor each other in all ways. Don’t ever make someone choose between loving you and loving themselves. That is manipulation and is not honorable in any sense. We show people how much we value ourselves by what we will endure from them in a relationship.

This is most important in relationships with our children. You should never put your children in a position where they must chose between their own self worth and their love for you. You should not allow this to happen in front of them either. This is the basis of self worth issues. Don’t manipulate, humiliate, or judge.

Be Honest with Yourself About Your Goals

Are your goals materialistic in nature?  Are they expectations placed on you by family or society, or do they come from your heart? Will they make you happy? Are they attainable?

When I was fresh out of high school my goals were prescribed to me by society and family expectations.  My goals were to go to college (picking a realistic major), have a good business job that afforded me a comfortable living, and to start my own family. 

As I look back now, how shallow that all sounds.  I was completely neglecting the aspects of myself that made my heart sing.  I was neglecting my creative, loving, kind, sensitive side completely.  I was making my family happy, but where was I in all of this?

As I have walked this new spiritual path I have realized that my goals have completely changed. They are no longer material in nature, but soul satisfying.   I don’t really care anymore what society or my family want for me.  My goals are now based on healing my shadows, living a life that balances my internal peace with my external freedom of expression and love.  My goal is to be in the flow, and to use my intuition to guide me and show me where there is work to do.

I have discovered that caring about fitting in with the masses is like chasing your tail.  There’s always something else to want or to be, and you don’t really have a say. I happen to like pumpkin spiced lattes and romantic comedies even though they make me “basic” according to the folks on social media.

So I challenge you to take a look at what you’re striving to become or be.  Is it what makes your heart sing or is it an idea that someone else has decided is right for you? Embrace your authenticity and make your goals something that will grow you as a person.

Love

We are devoted to our dogs and they are devoted to us. We treat them like our babies, and spoil them. We love them unconditionally, because they love us without expectation. It’s easy for us to reciprocate the love our dog gives us. It’s a sure thing. Our dogs love us and we love them back, but it’s different with human relationships isn’t it. But why?

In human relationships there’s always a question of if I give love will it be reciprocated? Society has taught us that love is something that comes with time and checking all the boxes. That isn’t how love works, and that causes confusion and discord in our heart. We begin seeing love as earned, but love just is. What happens when we start seeing self love the same way? We have to earn it?

When does someone become lovable? When do we become lovable? This should never be a question. Love is inherent. We come to this life as an unconditional loving and lovable being. There should never be a question, or criteria for someone to “deserve love.” It’s our birthright. Who are we to decide who is lovable?

So, let’s all take a tip from our canine companions. Let’s see each other and ourselves through the lens of love. There is no criteria or expectation for love, it just is. Allow it to manifest in your life and treat all beings in a loving way.
