What is the TRUTH?

Most of us did not grow up in an environment where we were cheered on all the time, where we were empowered to follow our desires and dreams.

How about you?

Were you taught to praise yourself for things you do well? To feel good about every aspect of who you are and what you do?

Do you find yourself downplaying your gifts, strengths and accomplishments and focusing more on your mistakes, shortcomings or failures?

In today’s video, I want to challenge you to look closely at your beliefs and habits (maybe even some of your new found beliefs and some practices that you are working on turning into habits).

Don’t get me wrong – I am in no way saying that I have all of the answers, or that my connection to the DIVINE provides me with the ability to KNOW everything.

What is the TRUTH?

The TRUTH is, in the moment, whatever you NEED it to be to move you to the next moment.

First, let’s look at what we can do to help ourselves feel good … and in the process allow for us to move towards a more beneficial way of being.

The only thing we really need to do to get into full alignment with the DIVINE and our gifts, is to recognize ALL the things we are doing well and CELEBRATE them!

Not only should we celebrate the things we are doing well – we should celebrate everything … even those things we do that are distasteful and that we want to find a way to STOP doing.

Whatever we resist, PERSISTS!

Instead of beating yourself up … EMBRACE IT!

It will twist your whole understanding when you go from:

I’m NOT going to …

to

I AM going to …

Try it … think of something you have been trying to change, an aspect of who you are that you don’t like, that you have been saying you were NOT going to be anymore.

Got it?

Now take your sentence and turn it to the positive.

Here is an example:

I’m not going to drink for a month!

Ouch, say it out loud. It feels heavy (even if you are not a drinker it just feels hard … like you are depriving yourself of something).

I’m going to go alcohol-free for a month!

Not so difficult … liberating, easy.

See the difference?

Give that a try …

I’d love to hear how this works for you!

Love and Blessings from Maui,

 

P.S. I know – I said “FIRST” … watch the video for the second way in which I want you to take a step back and look at your beliefs.

Who is really CREATING the things that are happening?

Does this new perspective resonate with you? Are you feeling the chills of TRUTH?

Seriously, I would LOVE to hear from you about this!

Whenever we think of manifestations … wish for the power to manifest things in our lives we only think about the GOOD things that we want to see happen. The GOOD things that we want to receive or experience.

We never really think about the fact that we are CONSTANTLY manifesting (most of the time by chance, unconsciously, and even unaware).

Watch the video (above) for a GREAT story of manifestation completely gone haywire!

This was a prime example of frantic energy, of trying to get too many things done at the same time and it all just EXPLODED!

We’ve all been caught up in situations like this one … ok so we haven’t all dropped cash on the ground, been doused in gasoline and been forced to race away from the gas station to get to the beach and make a call.

But I am sure that you can look back on a situation (or two) in your life where you just felt that you were falling down the rabbit hole and the idea of meditation or Angelic support was the last thing you could even have thought of.

If you are in a frantic situation where things are going from bad to worse to HORRIFIC.

If you can catch yourself in that moment, remind yourself that you have a choice!

You can keep going down this road allowing these things to happen or you can stop it right now by lightening the mood.

Make a joke.

Take a deep breath.

Come into yourself and just notice your breathing.

The best way to deal with situations like this is to prevent it from gaining momentum in the first place.

When you first notice that you are feeling like you are in a FUNK … when you first notice that things are not turning out the way they should, that you are just not in alignment with your day and your surroundings …

Ask yourself:

“What AM I facing right now?” “What AM I going through?”

If you don’t you’re going to end up manifesting things that you really didn’t want.

Remember LOVE is all you need!

Let me give a little spin to that sentence …

LOVE whatever moment you ARE in.

You have to LOVE whatever you ARE feeling, whatever you ARE experiencing, whatever you ARE receiving.

It’s NOT that you MUST always be feeling LOVE to be HAPPY … it’s that you MUST find the way to LOVE where you ARE!

Let’s FREAK her out!

This was a Universal Joke on ME and I feel like this all happened just so we could share it with you.

Here’s what happened …

I get home and am washing my hands at the sink when all of a sudden I see this really dark spot on my arm!

I thought it was another bruise … and I LITERALLY thought I had some sort of disease and that I was going to DIE!

Oh my GOD!

Here I am on Maui, all by MYSELF … all of my friends are off island!

What am I going to do???

Here I am leading this SPIRITUAL life … everything is all LOVE and LIGHT!

But, the second I think OH MY GOD

Instead of falling back on my SPIRITUALITY,

Instead of KNOWING that I am SAFE!

No matter what, no matter what happens! Even if I were to pass suddenly …

I’m still SAFE because I’m ETERNAL.

We do this all the time in life.

We do it about people, about relationships, certain circumstances and we literally FREAK OUT and then create this HUGE STORY in our HEAD.

We have underlying vibrations that cause MANIFESTATIONS and if you’re not aware of them you’re creating by default.

When you feel yourself starting to FREAK OUT … no matter what you are freaking out about … Stop and ask yourself:

What else could this be?”

Now step back, breathe deeply and look back to see what the true cause of your fear really is.  (Watch the video, above, to see how my freak out shed light on the FEAR I wasn’t even aware I have been feeling, and more importantly what to do about it!)

It’s our birthright to LIVE our passions and be ABUNDANT.

It is just out belief systems that keep us from it.

Just knowing these concepts can really break someone’s HEART open and really allow them to follow their path … which is really life CHANGING.

If:

  • you’re in a job you hate
  • you’re in a relationship that’s not working for you
  • your health is not where you want it to be

These are all signs that you need to do something DIFFERENT!

Love and Blessings from Maui,

Have you ever had a nutty day?

A day where everything seems to be going against you?

A day where you WANT to speak up for yourself (and maybe you do), a day where it just feels like everything and everyone is out to get you?

It’s so easy being at home, setting up your own little bubble where you can listen to the right music, meditate and stay in your happy place … but when it’s time to go out into the real world it’s not always easy to maintain that high, HAPPY vibration.

Every single time you come into contact with another human being there is an energetic interaction … and you have the CHOICE to either join that person on their vibrational level or provide them with the CHOICE to join you on yours.

Remember … people only know how to treat YOU the way they have been treated before.

When someone attacks/yells at you they are not really yelling at YOU.

They are creating behavior that has been done to them. They are putting it on you because you’re an EARTH ANGEL who can take that energy and NOT react to it.

When you are truly in your SPIRITUAL space you can counteract their energy in 2 ways …

You can either:

  • Bless them, or
  • Compliment them

That will take down their barrier.

The reason they are attacking YOU is because ENERGETICALLY they know that YOU have something that can HEAL the pain within THEM!

Now, they will likely respond to your blessing/compliment in one of 2 ways … either they will respond with a snarky comment or they will be skeptical, but the air will have been let out of their sails and the anger will dissipate.

The way we allow ourselves to become victims is if somebody comes at you with a lot of negative energy and you REACT, then you fall to their level of lower vibration and it dominates YOU.

 This is not about becoming a doormat.

It’s about being LOVE … at the end of the day, if you are just 100% LOVE in every situation, that’s standing in your POWER.

I want to share the gift of blessing with you … this is going to change your life when you start doing it.

This is about being fully in your body and letting your heart stay open.

Here are the 3 steps to praying

  1. Bless those who suffer
  2. Bless those who created or inflicted the suffering
  3. Bless those who are witnessing the suffering

Say the prayer out loud and then start FEELING it in your body.

Think it, say it and then feel it (this is the part that we miss … we don’t normally pray until we FEEL it.) This is the part that will change your life!

Bottom line … we all want to be LOVED.

Love and Blessings from Maui,

We can’t control the rain!

That’s 2 weeks away … so much can happen in 14 days!!

Miracles happen every day and you just need to believe and LET GO!

As soon as you catch yourself identifying something you don’t want … that’s the perfect opportunity to flip it around and play it out in the positive!

TRUST!

If you’re not having FUN it’s a sign …

Allow the Universe to show you. You’ll be given little breadcrumbs of information.

The biggest thing to do is follow that. Sometimes you’ll get messages but then be afraid to act on them. They might take you out of your comfort zone.

It might entail; a move, leaving a partner, completely throwing away everything you’ve worked so hard for … but when you take that leap of FAITH GOD/UNIVERSE is always there to support you on the next step!

Not sure if you are receiving messages or just thinking thoughts? Maybe you’ve been given 2 different opportunities or there are 2 different paths to take … how do you know which one to follow?

If I keep getting the thought over and over again … I know that’s not me!

You can’t do it WRONG! GOD will meet you anywhere you are.

You have to take the action steps when they are given to you.

There’s a REASON for this.

Do you have a big DESIRE (or even just a little craving)?

Journal about it. Put feeling, detail and as many adjectives as you can into your story.

Meditate and at the end of your meditation become the person who has accomplished that DESIRE

*be the person living in the DREAM HOUSE,
*be the person who can WALK again,
*be the mother of the INFANT,
*be the person with a $1,000,000 BANK balance.

Feel the emotions this person would be feeling. Feel the appreciation you WILL exude when you ARE this person.

Now throughout your day, every chance you get, ask yourself …

“How would a person with *insert your manifestation here* be feeling right now?”

FEEL that way.

“How would a person with *insert your manifestation here* be acting right now?”

ACT that way.

“What would a person with *insert your manifestation here* be thinking right now?”

THINK that thought.

If you get worried about it that’s what the UNIVERSE feeds back to you … something to WORRY about.

Letting go is so KEY!!

Give this exercise a try over the next week.

Keep your eyes and heart open to see the breadcrumbs and even better – the MANIFESTATIONS!

Send me an Email … I LOVE sharing in your excitement!

I can’t wait to hear about all of your manifestations!!

Do you want to know what YOU can do to help this world?

Have you ever wondered how to know if you are following your own DIVINE Guidance?

I feel like I’m on a soapbox today … Click here to watch the video and listen to the whole message that my Guides and Spirits want you to hear.

Remember in my readings there are always 3 cards:

  1. BLOCKAGE
  2. ACTION
  3. OUTCOME

Where we are all stuck is ACTION. Whether it is in your life or in the world, we are all too LACKADAISICAL! 

We are all just sitting around and not doing what we need to do, what we KNOW we are led to do.

I want you to take the time to tap in and tune in to your HEART!

We are always blaming everyone else but if we take the time to make ourselves happy it will go out to the rest of the world!

Does this ever happen to you?

You have something you’re burning to share, you have a way to help, a way to ease the angst being felt by another and yet you’re not sure you’re being heard? 

Don’t you wish you could just say “Can you hear me? Let me know if you’re there!”

You CAN do what I did! Ask and then allow the answer to come to you.

There is an energy out there that is bigger than us … just remember that you are always loved and always being taken care of!

I know it’s a crazy time around the world right now.

There are Hurricanes, Fires and Earthquakes … there’s a lot of fear and angst

I decided to pull some cards to figure out what’s going on.

Remember … in my 3-card pull our first card is blockage, the second one is the action card, and the third is the outcome card. Click here to watch the video. (Wow! The energy on the day of this reading was so wonky! Sure, I could’ve had the video polished up and removed the part where the video cut out and I had to go plug in, but I thought this was just another example of what this reading was all about.) 

We need more silence! We need to stop yelling at each other. We need to send love, we need … click here to watch the reading.

Celestial beings reside in the non-physical realm. Your Higher Self resides there as well. It is the highest aspect of your consciousness. You are one with your Higher Self and you are always connected. It is who you truly are, without any masks.

You don’t have this most intimate connection with other celestial beings. They are not you, but they are there to provide guidance and protection along your life path.

You have selected your life plan before this incarnation, including what you want to experience and learn in this world. Your Higher Self has access to this information and by reconnecting with it, you can have it too. When your life plan or contract was set, your Higher Self selected spirit guides whose job is to make sure you stay on the right track. Besides spirit guides and your Higher Self, the ether is home to guardian angels and archangels as well. As you can consciously reconnect with your Higher Self, you can also detect and connect with these powerful beings.

Mediation is a great way to start communicating with your Higher Self. An altar can serve as a focal point for meditation. Once you’ve tuned in to your Higher Self, you’ll be able to get key information about why you’re here and where you should be going next. Sometimes your Higher Self can sound like intuition, sometimes as a voice of reason. The more you open yourself to it, the more you will be in tune with your Higher Self.
Here’s what you should know about these Light beings:

Higher Self

The Higher Self resides in the ether, the non-physical realm. Your Higher Self is you, but without the veil across your memory. It represents your total soul consciousness, the highest aspect of you. You, here on Earth, are a projection of your Higher Self’s consciousness. When you were born, you forgot where you came from, as incarnation causes oblivion.

There is an unbreakable connection between you and your Higher Self even though you are not aware of it. After incarnation, you are left with an ethereal connection with your Higher Self. As the total soul consciousness, your Higher Self knows everything about you including your past, present, and future because you have chosen the life you are living. It knows your life plan. By consciously reconnecting with your Higher Self, you can rediscover your purpose and live a happier, more meaningful life.

Spirit Guides

your ultimate spiritual guide
Before you were born, you created your entire life plan. Your Higher Self has this knowledge even though you have forgotten all about it. When the plan was built, your Higher Self chose spirit guides to assist you in this world.

These spirit guides have knowledge and experience in handling the exact situations you have chosen to encounter while incarnated. You can have more than one spirit guide. Some will be there for you your entire life, others from time to time. Some will guide you through certain events and leave you afterward, when their work is done. They are basically following the directives your Higher Self has set and their mission is to nudge you in the right direction, making sure you experience what you have already chosen.

Guardian Angels

Unlike spirit guides that can be incarnated, guardian angels do not incarnate. They are not in the same category as spirit guides. Angels protect everyone. We all have more than one guardian angel watching out for us. There are enough guardian angels for everyone, as there are thousands upon thousands of them. They tend to intervene when you are in a dangerous situation or in need of some serious help. They are there for you during rough times to offer support, comfort, and protection. Meditation is a great technique that can help you detect guardian angels.

Archangels

Archangels are at the highest level in the celestial hierarchy. They are extremely powerful beings and closest to the Source. These extraordinary celestial beings are omnipresent, meaning they are present everywhere at the same time. They can be bound to more than one person at a time. Archangels are messengers and protectors. Most people are familiar with Gabriel, Michael, Raphael, and Uriel. Each archangel has a particular dominant area or specialty. As they are present in every major religious system, instead of focusing on their names or physical descriptions, focus on their specialties. That is what matters the most.

Altars

An altar is a place that can help you anchor your attention. It represents the intersection between the non-physical realm and Earth. It serves as a place that can help you center your awareness and consciously reconnect with your Higher Self and other celestial beings.
You can create a personal altar in your home. Regardless of your religious beliefs, a personal altar will reflect your spirituality and provide a place for quiet reflection and devotion. The altar you have set up in your home can serve as a focal point for meditation. There is no right or wrong way to set up an altar, just follow your intuition.

The first thing you have to do is to find a space to set up your altar. It should be in an area that is quiet and peaceful, where you know you can sit without disruption. All you need is a flat place, table or shelf. The next thing to do is to place a cloth over it. The cloth should reflect your personality, beliefs, and intention. Use the one you feel the most comfortable with. It should be large enough to cover the entire altar. You should clean and cleanse this area as often as possible.

Keep in mind that an altar is supposed to please you, not anybody else. You don’t have to think about how it looks like. Follow your intuition and place the things you feel need to be there. Arrange it the way you like and place everything with intention. These things represent what is sacred to you. You can have items that represent the four elements, including earth, wind, fire, and water. You should also have something that represents your source, something that will help you still your thoughts and open your heart for not just your intuition but also for your Higher Self.

I started to cry

Last week I shared with you the very first time I discovered the secret to connecting directly with God

This week it’s time to begin talking to Angels!

Here is a snippit from the middle of chapter #5, my first Angel Reading .

Love,

 

 

 


From page 80 of my book

When we arrived, we were greeted by the smell of wild and exotic incense. The owner of the store welcomed us and told us that Penny would do a free fifteen minute angel-reading for each of us. Lisa went first; she disappeared behind a closed door in the back of the store. I wandered around looking at all the Indian and wolf paintings on the walls and thumbed through the books on crystals, healings, meditation, and tarot. I hadn’t realized how complex and intricate this world was, how deep it went. There were all sorts of categories I wasn’t very familiar with. It was an eye-opening experience.

When it was my turn, I walked to the back of the store. Penny greeted me and showed me where to sit. The room was small with just enough room for a card table and a chair on each side. She asked my name and took out a stack of cards, shuffled them and put them face up on the table. There was some angelic music softly playing. Penny started to read the cards.

She said that the angels wanted to let me know that they were with me during this difficult time. I started to cry. She said my angels were always with me and that if I needed anything to just ask them for their help. I can’t remember if Penny asked me more questions or what exactly she told me, but I remembered feeling both overwhelmed and reassured at the same time. I left the store with an angel CD and the book Angelspeake: How to Talk with Your Angels, by Barbara Mark and Trudy Griswold.

The book’s directions were simple. You cleared your mind, prayed to your angels, and then you began to write what you heard inside your head. The first time I did it, I was hooked. I wrote that my angels loved me, that they were surrounding me at all times, and the more I talked to them, the more easily the readings would become. Here’s one of my first angel self-readings:

Your life has meaning for others. You just
have to present the material in such a way
that people find it useful and inspiring. You
are off to a great start. Keep writing and
keep thinking. Your message will be loud
and clear, you just need to hone your skills
to be able to share the information that is
most important to other people. We are here
to help you and to guide you—don’t get
frustrated or discouraged. This is a path
that you will continue to follow for the rest
of your life. It’s not a race; it’s a journey.
Know that we are always here and always
with you. Just continue to write and again,
your message will come through.

Love and blessings, your Angels

“What a remarkable book!

Lisa Jones’s courageous journey through the loss of her young husband to discovering joy and meaning in her life is deeply compelling and inspirational. It’s so well written that there were times when I was so caught up in the story that I wanted to race ahead to see what happened, the same way I do in a paperback thriller. And there were times that I was touched beyond measure at the valiant vulnerability of this story. I highly recommend this book.”

Are you enjoying our journey together, our journey back to the beginning, back to when my gift was revealed to me?

Let’s continue at the beginning of chapter #5 with the very first time I discovered the secret to connecting directly with God

Love,

 

 

 


From page 65 of my book

I remember the very first time I discovered the secret to connecting directly with God. I was six and living in Minnesota with my family while my father pursued his doctoral degree.

It happened at a YMCA summer day camp. One of the male camp counselors, a gangly guy about sixteen, started bouncing a rubber dodge ball off the top of my head. I would scream every time he did it, but he thought it was funny. Once I realized he wasn’t going to stop, my fight-or-flight instincts kicked in, and I took off running, darting toward the YMCA building. He chased after me. I was terrified; I didn’t know what he would do to me if he caught me, and I had no interest in finding out.

I entered the building, looked back and saw he was still coming. I ran into the ladies’ locker room, positive that he would follow me in. I spotted an open locker and climbed inside. Putting my back to the wall, I slid down to my butt, brought my knees to my chest and pulled the door shut. Then I barely breathed—I just sat there in sheer terror, the kind you can only feel as a little kid. After a few minutes, I realized that he wasn’t coming in. I was relieved until it hit me that no one else would be coming in either.

I was trapped in the locker.

I pounded on the thin metal door with my hands and started to scream, “Help me! Let me out!” Once I heard my voice and realized how alone it sounded, the panic started to set in. It was the end of the day, and no one was there. My heartbeat was deafening, and I didn’t know what to do. I started to kick the door with my right foot. After some time I was able to get my foot pushed out between the door and the locker frame. By bashing the bottom of the door, I managed to bend it open. My leg moved in and out, but the door still remained latched. I was completely trapped.

After ten minutes of screaming, kicking and pounding, the energy started to drain out of me. It was only when I finally stopped fighting that I began to calm down. In the quiet, my mind was free to wander and seek. I remembered something my Sunday school teacher had told me a few days earlier:

“If you ever need help, you can always ask God.”

I took a deep breath, and put my hands into a prayer position. I spoke aloud, my tiny voice an echo in those metal walls of the locker: “Dear God, please, please help me get out of here.”

A calm rose from my stomach and a wave of love washed over me. I heard a voice in my head: Look down and press the metal rod up.

I looked down and saw a round silver rod that ran from the top of the locker door. I could see that the rod didn’t go all the way to the bottom. I dropped my right hand out of the prayer position, and I was able to put my finger under it. I pressed it and the door burst open. I couldn’t believe it!

I scrambled out of the locker, relieved and empowered. I felt I could do anything. I was glad to be free, of course, but something much larger and consequential happened that day. I was more elated that I had just discovered how to relate directly to God.

I also realized, for the first time, that I was truly alone in this world. I was a separate human entity from everyone and everything. There was no one there to ask for help. Not my parents, or my brother or anyone else in the entire world. I only had me. I was alone, yet God was there to guide and protect me. This thought anchored in me. Going forward, I’d make decisions and take action with God always there to provide me with guidance and love.
