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!!

Love and Blessings from Maui,

The folks at SoulPancake have done it again! In a video based on a study conducted by the University of California – Riverside, they wanted to show a link between happiness and success – but not the link you might be thinking.

Instead of the commonly assumed association, where “successful” people have higher levels of happiness, this looks at the exact opposite relationship: that being happy actually leads to success.

The video presents a basic experiment: two groups are given the same problem-solving test, but one group is given several “happiness affecting” cues to put them in a positive mood before beginning the test. The experiment found that the “happy group” was, on average, faster at solving the problem.

Now, this shows at least a correlation between a good mood and problem solving skills (though there is no way to determine the problem solving abilities of the participants before taking the test), but it isn’t too difficult to see the larger implications of this idea.

When people are happy, they tend to have a more optimistic outlook, think more clearly, and have higher self-esteem. All of these traits associated with a general sense of happiness are also the traits of achievers – people who are work toward their goals with confidence and determination.

So, if happiness leads to success, shouldn’t the focus being on finding and maintaining happiness?

Note: true happiness is not fleeting. It doesn’t come from material objects or monetary rewards. It doesn’t come from praise, or even from other people. It has to start within!

When you can harness your own internal happiness, as the study and SoulPancake experiment found, you approach problems with confidence. But it goes far beyond problem solving – the optimism and self-esteem that accompany an overall attitude of happiness are key components to success in any endeavor!
