You are not your thoughts, or your feelings. You are the soul who has the ability to observe and experience those thoughts and feelings. You’ve may have heard this before, but the concept is one that has had such a huge impact on my life, I simply have to share it!
When I made this realization, I had already been working on my own inner dialogue. Until I paid attention to it, I hadn’t even realized how harsh it was. Our minds are often full of chatter which, when left unattended, can become a breeding-ground for limiting belief patterns.
A few days ago, I was going through some old boxes and out fell a little scrap of paper. Curious, I picked it up, unfolded it and read the words I had written over a year ago. Now, I don’t remember writing this little note, or saving it for that matter. But what I found grabbed my consciousness and pulled me immediately into that present moment.
On this little note I had written things like, Do fulfilling work that feeds my soul and A home with lots of love and light, by the ocean and mountains and forests. It was a wish list. As I read through the items on this list, I realized that all of them had become a reality for me. I was amazed, and filled with gratitude!
Don’t get me wrong, I have my challenges and karmic lessons just like anyone else. Sometimes I forget to take stock and honor moments of gratitude for the many blessings in my life. While this ‘wish list’ shook me back into gratitude, it also got me thinking about something else – the power of intention. Read the rest of this entry »
When I first began to converse with Spirit, I didn’t really know what I was doing. I was receiving these messages and listening to them, but I never really put much thought into it. It wasn’t until I consciously acknowledged this conversation was happening, that the momentum really started to build. It was then that I realized my guides had been with me all along!
In my experience, the most important step you can take in opening a conversation with Spirit, is to acknowledge that this is your intent. Your angels and guides are always with you – but they need your permission to help you! Remember to ask them often to be near you and to help you and guide you.
When you need direction, ask them for a sign. Then be patient and watchful. Spirit communicates in many ways, sometimes using number sequences, or animals, maybe a song you hear over and over again wherever you go. These are just a few examples, but Spirit will try to get your attention any way it can and will typically use signs and symbols that will be meaningful to you specifically. It’s important to be open to receiving these messages, and not to dismiss any ‘coincidences’ you may encounter. Read the rest of this entry »
The practice of meditation is tremendously powerful and has impacts on both our spiritual and physical well-being, as well as our reality. Creating a routine meditation practice can help to supercharge your ability to manifest your desires. It also has incredible health benefits and, believe it or not, it can actually be a fun experience!
The idea that you have to be able to completely clear your mind of thoughts to successfully meditate is probably one of the most common misconceptions. This is only one form of meditation and, honestly, it’s quite challenging. For someone who has never meditated before, it would be like giving a kindergarten student a complicated math equation to solve.
As with anything, it takes some time to learn the technique and train your brain to comply with your spirit. The first thing you must understand is, you are not your brain or your thoughts. You are not your body, or your emotions. These are all things you experience. You experience the thoughts in your mind, you experience the sensations of the body and of emotions, but these things are not you. Read the rest of this entry »
