I love the guidance from the JOGs to view everything from this perspective. What a life changer! I also love that this reminds us of what is truly true at the heart of every living thing. Would love to hear your comments and thoughts too! Enjoy! Xo

We love you very much. And it is with great compassion that we share with you our message today. We see many of you suffering unnecessarily and suffering at the hands of your own thoughts and we wish to set you free from this affliction. For it is only in your deepest connection with who you really are that you discover the truth of all. The truth of the Light of all, the truth that there is no thing on this planet than can ever harm or hurt you.

Now we can hear many of you protesting that you have been hurt or harmed or you feel hurt and harm and we know. We acknowledge that that has been your experience that you have observed and interacted with aspects of this life experience that have caused you great pain. We understand. And we want to expand your framework, expand the lens with which you are viewing this world so as to call forth what is most aligned with the highest frequency of who you really are, the highest frequency that is available to all of you on this planet and in this time and space.

You may have felt like or thought that “bad” things or people existed. And those beliefs about “badness” may be directly related to having experiences that felt like what you may call “bad” or “dark” or “wrong”. But we want you to lean in and listen carefully here as we tell you that those aspects were simply thought forms that were created by others. That as they were fed more and more energy they began to take on a life of their own and perpetuate what was uncomfortable or unwanted. So imagine if the thought forms that you give energy to are thought forms that expand you, that bring light into you and that despite what might be near or around you – you do not allow your thoughts to go anywhere else but to the Light. Imagine what happens then? What happens then is that those once seen as “bad” or untoward aspects no longer exist.

It is the focus that creates and summons what you do not desire to come into your experience. Now this is not meant in any way to create a means with which you can blame yourself. We will explain further. As young children, you did not conjure or dwell on harmful aspects. Yet the adults around you might have. And where you are currently, you may not have conjured up harmful aspects, but those around you might have. And there are all various levels of this. Heather is asking us repeatedly about this right now. Because she came from a background that believed in God (good) and the Devil (bad). And then she finds herself in a spiritual framework with healers and teachers that are saying something similar – that there must be dark if there is Light. And we say not true. Duality is simply another creation of the mind. Why ever would you think there has to be something “bad” or “wrong” to validate or justify what is Light?

And it is all perspective and perception anyway. One of you may view something as “good” and the other feels it is “bad”. The husband gets a big promotion and pay increase which he feels is “good” while the wife feels it’s “bad” because she views it as more stress and less time at home. Who is “right” here? Who is “wrong?” Who is to say what is “good” and what is “bad”? Really there is only that which feels aligned to the whole of who you are and that which does not. We would rather you threw out those “good” and “bad” labels altogether.

Yes, there can be all Light or what you would call “good” all of the time but it is up to you if that is where you choose to focus. It is up to you where you focus. And if you are having seemingly “not good” or “dark” or “bad” things coming into your experience, you get to ask yourself – do I choose to see this through the lens of “bad” or “wrong” or “dark”? Or can I view it as aligned or not aligned? And if someone is bringing me something “bad” or “dark” and they are wanting me to take it, like, “here, here is this thing that I do not want and you need to take it” – and you know they do this by telling you in significant detail all about it. You can simply say, “no thank you”. You can simply say, “please do not bring that into my experience”. You can simply say, “I am a beacon and a believer of the Light and I will not for one minute allow anything that does not feel aligned to me to enter my experience. And if such thing does, I know that it is simply an opportunity to choose a more aligned to who I really am path.”

And in this way the whole world can be transformed. In this way if all practiced this you would realize that there is nothing, not one thing to fear and that in any moment you can choose whatever perception you desire and you can allow yourself to feel the alignment of it or not. It is not up to you to sort it all out. There are all sorts of thought projections out there that people have given enough credence to that has made it into something much larger than it ever needed to be. Just turn on your television and you’ll see it.

And all of that only exists because enough people gave their attention to it. We are wanting you to give your attention to what is true, to what is truly you. To what your Higher Self, your Source Self, your God self knows to be true. It is all Light and you can choose to be aligned with that or not – the choice is up to you. But trying to figure out what went wrong and how to shift the “dark/bad” or whatever you call it is unnecessary. Stay focused on the Highest Light and only the Highest Light will come to you. Allow every not Light opportunity to be a further clarifying point, a clarification on your alignment and what is truly aligned for you and what is not. You can transmute all that you do not enjoy by connecting to the Light essence that is available to you in any moment. How do you access the Light you may ask – you simply feel love, you take a deep breath and inhale the sweetness of a flower, you place your bare feet in the grass, you stand before your glorious ocean. You connect to the Love, to the Light that surrounds you in any given moment. The Light that many are not seeing simply because – their focus is elsewhere. We are encouraging you to come back to that which you intended to be. To return back to the wholeness that is naturally you. And it is not natural to be focused on “bad/dark/non-aligned” energy. We are using those terms because they are terms we know you will understand. And we will further clarify that really the filter needs to be “aligned with me energy” and “not aligned with me energy”. And the answers to that question will be different for every person because every person is interacting with the path and the world that they intended to. So bonus for you – you do not have to figure out if so and so is on the “right” path, you only have to concern yourself with your path which is the only path you ever need to know anything about.

JOGsAllLightBabySo do not fear. Do not worry. Do not beat yourself up trying to figure it all out. Surrender to the knowing that it is all so much simpler than you could have ever imagined and that you can engage whatever thought forms feel aligned to you and say “no thank you” to those that do not. And that in doing so you cleanse your vibration, you cleanse your mind, you release yourself from your restrictions. Because you are free. Life is Light. All is always working in your favor.

The only component that we cannot control is You. You must be willing to allow this to be your reality and get out of the conversations that say to the contrary. Stop talking about things that do not feel aligned. Stop watching things that do not feel aligned. Stop reading things that do not feel aligned. Stop trying to convince people who are not aligned to be aligned. Let it all go. Give it all up. And enjoy the splendor of who you really are which is Light. Every single one of you. The degree of the Light is different for each but you are all Light and the best way we could ever see you spending any of your time is nurturing that Light.

And so it is.

I love how the JOGs continually remind us that we are always being supported, that things are set up to work out in our favor and how the support we need and the messages that will most serve us do and will come to us. They will be the messages – the 1 out of thousands perhaps – that cause us to pause and pay attention. Why? Because we intended it to be so, we intended it to be like this. Love this – it just feels like a deep sigh of “yes” in my body. How about you? And…I’m so thrilled we decided to show up for each other in this lifetime together. 😉 Enjoy! Xo

Here is also the audio link to listen to this message if you so choose.

# # #

There is much to be known that we want to share with you and much of which you know already – in fact, as you read our messages you will often feel as though you are remembering what we are sharing with you from long ago. In truth, you are because locked within each of you is this clarity, is this knowing and above all is this ability to connect with the Source within you, with your core self, with your non-physical self who is intimately connected to your Spirit Team and there you have an incredible wealth of knowledge that is available to you. So few realize this or feel they cannot access this wisdom and so we find ways to come in to share with you to bring to you messages and nudges and clarity that will support the ease and flow of your life experience. We know it may be challenging at times to fully hear or disseminate the information being brought to you but we assure you that your Spirit Team, that Source, that your Higher Self are all united in their deep desire for you to know the fullness of who you really are and the path with which you are here to experience in the most aligned ways.

And so there are those that bring these messages forth. Those who have agreed before they incarnated that this would be part of their path. There are those highly and completely and fully dedicated solely to this path who are here to support as many as they have agreed to support and who have agreed to be called forth by them to be seen and heard and expanded through the voice and the messages of Spirit.

Each individual who brings these messages through has a specific flavor we would call it or a specific aptitude to bring forth messages that are more clear, concise and applicable to those they are here to serve. There is never any need to worry or fear about not receiving the “right” messages at the “right” time or missing a part of your path that is critical to your overall happiness and purpose. Because it has been decided on and you were part of that decision that you would intersect with specific messengers and messages at specific times that would allow you to remember what needed to be remembered so that you could experience greater alignment and joy and bliss on your path.

You also agreed before incarnating that you would be drawn to a Spirit-led path – which Heather refers to it as – although we would like it if you all just called the Spirit-led path the path because really and truly it is the only path worth living. Oh, you can and many of you have tried and tried to do life on your own and tried doing things the way you think you should and the way you’ve been taught and conditioned to believe things should be but it is not worth it we tell you. Too much hardship. Too much pain. Too much strife. We say it is not worth it and we would request that instead you make it your sole aim to live the life that you fully intended to live, the life that the core of you came here for. There is so much for you to experience, there is no sense letting the collective mind non-sense pull you out of your true, unwavering alignment.

And yet so many do, so many are thinking that it is all up to them. And we have told you and will continue to tell you that you have an entire team of non-physical beings around you just waiting, like really and truly just hoping and praying you are going to request something of them, that an opportunity will arise for them to jump in and support you and watch as you flourish in a new unfolding on your path. Yes, that is really and truly how it works.

And even so, even with your team and even with those of you who are aware and are connected to your Higher Self and your path, there is still a need for upLiftment, for support, for reminders of that which you know within you to be true. And that is why we are bringing these messages through and why others also bring in messages from their Spirit Team. It is because you all need one another and you are all in this together in many regards. You all have days that feel not so good and when those days occur it is so very helpful to receive those reminders that remind you above all else what you are here for and who you are here for and how it all is really meant to go for you and how you really and truly can and should delight in the Magic of this existence.

There are times when you will be soaring, absolutely soaring in the Magic and in the Love and in the abundance that is YOURS. It is so truly and completely yours. And we love watching this, we celebrate and soar with you when you are in that state. Can’t you feel us with you? Can’t you feel the crowds of us cheering and the delight that is emanating from us to you? We hope that you can and we ask that you tune in to this more. In your most joyful moments – stop and tune in – what do you feel and where do you feel it?

Tonight Heather was having the experience of sitting on her deck and she was so happy. Overjoyed really. And she was watching the boats floating around and listening to the birds singing and then the neighbor cats all wanted to be out with her and she was reflecting on how happy she feels and there is no reason. No reason at all. Nothing particularly out of this world happened today and yet her heart is beaming wide open. And she can feel this pulsing within her heart and then all around her heart. And that is us. That is us feeling her happiness too and rejoicing in her now moment in which she – a once self-proclaimed go-getter and doer is simply happy because she is and she is doing nothing to have the experience. It is simply occurring through and around and within her.

And those moments – whether they occur when what you would call big or magnificent things are happening – or when you are simply like Heather sitting outside feeling happy for no reason – we are there celebrating with you.

We would love for you to be in your body more to really feel the pulsing, feel the energy swirling around you. Feeling the loving hugs and support there for you. So often you all on this path are feeling chills and yes that is your Soul saying yes and it’s also all of us hugging you too! We are hugging you and so happy for you as you have aligned with another core truth or action that is part of your Destiny. That is part of what you came here for – to delight in your YES in this lifetime. You know when one of you says something to the other of you and you are covered in chills – yes we are saying yes, yes, yes – you’ve got it! Follow that knowing, follow that guidance, follow that offering – you are on the path of your Destiny.

We will continue to share with you all of the delightful ways we all get to play together. Our intention is that in reading these messages you will have a newfound appreciation for the power of this relationship between you and your Spirit Team and that you will expand the ways you work with your Team and the ways you ask for your Team to be present and to be part of your life experience. We always sneak – not exactly the right word choice here because we really want you to find them so they aren’t that sneaky – new practices and techniques and knowings that will further support your evolution and further support you on being on the path that is most aligned, most fulfilling and most fun for you.

Our intention in bringing these messages through Heather is so another segment of the population that were perhaps untouched by our messages in earlier years or in previous incarnations are touched now. Are supported now. Go higher now.

And it is so.
Love,
XoTheJOGs

This is seriously the best way to make any decision and it’s simple & to the point! Enjoy! Xo

# # #

There is no question that the most important focus for each of you is to remember your divinity. And from this place of remembering your divinity you can affect all manner of aspects of your life experience. No area of your life will not blossom and expand when you know and honor your divinity. And this you often say to us is challenging because of the requests and demands of you as well as balancing your emotional stimuli and responses. And we understand. We too have been a Spirit in a body at one time. We too can hear your concerns and have also been there ourselves.

However, true spiritual mastery, true mastery of self is what you all came to experience and it is most certainly the journey you are all on whether you consciously acknowledge it or not. To be in your body, to have the “challenges” arise and to not beat yourself up over them but instead to actually stand in glorious delight and honor of them because they are leading you forward. They are opening new doors that you cannot even imagine just yet. They are providing you with an opportunity to know yourself on new levels and to know us, to know Spirit, to know Source on entirely new levels. This is both exciting and refreshing and exhilarating for you.

What would it be like if you could look at your so-called problems this way? What if you could look at everything that occurred in your life as Magic? As what is allowing you to become more you? We want you to play with this. We want you to look at your life through this lens. As it is the lens with which Source and all in the Spirit realms see what is occurring for you. We know that you have your emotional experience and we say also look at your emotions from this vantage point. Observe them, feel them flood through your body, watch and witness them – and do so with the eyes of Source and in doing so you will remember so much more about your divinity.

From this practice, you will know with even more certainty that you are divine. That this life experience you are on is divine. That you have no choice but to continue forward as a divine being of Light. If you so choose.

You see, you can choose not to follow this path. You can resist it. You can drag your feet so to speak to avoid it. But it is always available to you. It is always an option for you to choose YOU, to choose your divinity to choose your highest and most expanded path.

Take a look around right now. Who do you know who is fully living their divinity? Who is living a life of Spirit, of being lit up by the power of being a Spirit in a body, of being so connected, so entwined with their Source self and their Spirit team? And look at those who are not. Do you feel the difference? Can you see the difference?

We would describe it as merely an absence of light or a heavy feeling when you encounter one who is not embracing their divinity. In truth, they are believing the lie, the illusion, the silliness – we want to make it as light as possible here – that says there is something wrong with them or with life or with the world or with those around them. They are focused on problems to fix and people to fix and on things going wrong.

And we encourage you to choose a higher path. To choose the path filled with Light. When making decisions choose the option that has the most Light attached to it. You are trying to decide – do I do this or do I do that and we say – choose that which feels Light. Which feels full of Life and vitality and just like you could float on a cloud along with that decision? These decisions will serve your highest and best good. These decisions will make all of the difference in the world for you.

We so want to see more of you living in this manner because all things can be made available to you – that are on your vibrational trajectory – when you give yourself this gift. We love you and we are forever holding the space for your highest and most profound alignment.

In Love,
XoTheJOGs

A friend of mine said to me one random Thursday as we sat out on my deck overlooking the water, sipping champagne, “You always live like you’re on vacation. And when I spend time with you, I feel like I’m on vacation.”

I had never thought of my life that way, but he was right. I do live most of the time like I’m on vacation. In fact, right now I’m writing this article looking out at the sparkling Pacific Ocean at my favorite luxury hotel and in a few minutes I’ll head out to an evening wine tasting reception followed by dinner with two of my favorite people in the world at one of my favorite restaurants. And it’s only a Wednesday.

The truth is though, it wasn’t always like this for me.

I was raised to believe that the only honor in life came from struggle and sacrifice which meant working hard and barely getting by. I thought doing a job you loathed was just how people lived, and that living paycheck to paycheck was simply par for the course.

Over time though I began to hate living focused on when my next vacation would be to get through the day, while sucking it up around bosses and co-workers I would never choose to be around full-time and working my ass off for meager wages.

So, I did something radical. Or a continuous series of radical acts, that is.

I stopped playing the work-life-money game I had been raised with and decided that since this was my one life, I was not going to spend it working or living for the future. And over the course of the last seven years, I have been able to create a life that truly feels like I’m on vacation every day.

The great news is everyone who desires this can have it too.

Below are my top tips for how to live and work like you’re always on vacation:

1. Commit to it. This is your life and you have the right to live it exactly as your heart and soul desire. Make a commitment to stop working to live and embrace that you get to live the life of your dreams and your work can work around that. Besides we should only ever be doing work that we love. It’s a core soul desire as a human being.


2. Take inventory.
What forms of “work” do you love? What forms of work make the time fly by? What people in your life do you absolutely adore being around? Where are your favorite places to vacation? Where do you feel most at home in the world? Journal your responses to all of these questions. Next, look at how you can live in the city/town that most lights you up, doing what you most love, surrounded by people you adore. Let yourself think big and far outside of the box. You have the ability to create your new normal which means letting go of limiting thoughts, beliefs and fears.

3. Which brings us to… let go of those limiting beliefs and fears that say you can’t live the life of your dreams and that make you stay in homes, relationships and work environments that don’t serve you. Find a practitioner you have a deep soul resonance with who can permanently release those limiting beliefs, fears and bullshit stories with you. As you evolve into more and more versions of your dream life, new limitations will emerge and that’s okay. At every new stage of my dream life, new limitations arise. I remind myself that this is an evolutionary journey and I won’t stop, cuz I can’t stop (there’s some old-school P-Diddy/112 for you). That means I receive regular (two to three times a month) soul alignment sessions and my spiritual “work” is my first priority. This allows me to be clearly tuned in to my soul’s desires (there’s a difference between a soul and mind desire) so that I stay on track in living the life my soul is here to live.

4. Take inspired action.
You can stay languishing for years in what doesn’t work for you or pull the plug and take immediate action to live your dreams. Want to be a successful entrepreneur? Get a fun part-time job, hire an incredible business coach and/or take a spiritual business course and begin to build your business. Want to leave your current relationship? Find a cute studio in a part of town you’ve always wanted to live in, get weekly sessions set up with your therapist and then leave the relationship. Be balanced about the actions you take so that you set yourself up for success. Make sure it’s a full “yes” everywhere in your body and then go for it.

5. Stop doing things you don’t want to do. You know that obligatory girls lunch or happy hour? Or time with that one person who shall go unnamed that sucks the life force from your very body? Stop hanging out with them. Say no. Only spend time with people who uplift you. And if you’re anything like I was when I shifted my obligatory life into dream life mode — it may not leave you with anyone. That’s okay. Start attending events that do light you up and watch as you attract individuals who are more aligned to you.

6. Celebrate every moment that brings you joy. Every step along the way of crafting the life of your dreams should be honored and celebrated. Take yourself out for a mani/pedi, toast with a glass of champagne, go out to your favorite restaurant — every time you release something or someone that no longer serves you and step into living the next chapter of the life of your dreams in a new way — celebrate. What we focus on expands and when we place our focus on all of the good we are intentionally creating in our lives, more good will flow to us.

7. Create a dream team.
You know how athletes and celebrities have a team of people dedicated to their awesome-ness? Yeah, well, you need that too. Have a team of people committed to supporting you in creating your dream life — your energy healer, your coach, your best friend, your lover — all on board to hold you to and support you in taking your life to new heights.

 

Make your life about what it is truly about, YOU having the best life ever. Treat every day as though it were the only day like it (it is), and watch as every day begins to feel like you’re on vacation. Soon, you won’t be taking vacations, you’ll be living one.

Conscious entrepreneurs are the guiding force in a new paradigm of business. We combine all of the aspects of what it means to be a human being – living our purpose, making a positive difference in the world, all while being connected to something larger than ourselves and living in wealth and abundance.

And as conscious entrepreneurs, we also know that we have an edge in business because we use our intuition. We let our intuitive guidance lead the way from everything to product launches, our services, marketing and promotions, and more.

But what is the conscious entrepreneur to do when a decision is unclear? When the ideas are not flowing? What does one do when the mind and intuition is split and a clear path is not, well, clear?

The Valentine’s Lovefest is in full effect. You can’t walk more than a few steps without running into candied hearts, chocolates, teddy bears, and diamonds (I happened to run into a whole case full of diamonds yesterday and could not stop batting my eyes at them, as though someone — anyone — might notice and gift them to me right then and there.)

You see, it’s so easy to get wrapped up in the concept that Love is about someone else giving something to us. You know, like flowers (preferably red roses, just like on The Bachelor of course), diamonds, affection, and telling you that you’re “the one” (a la Big to Carrie on Sex & The City).

But that isn’t actually Love.

Those are merely expressions of Love from another to us, but it is not the core essence of Love.

The truth is, even those expressions of Love have to stem from a feeling that an individual has inside of him/herself. We actually already have all of the Love we could ever need or desire — inside of us. We get to experience Love with others as a way of remembering this Love that is inside of us already. Now, stay with me here, I can feel the eye rolls coming, but it’s true.

And I’m going to prove it to you.

If you want to experience feeling more Love in your life today, try out a couple or all of the following and notice what happens inside of you and all around you:

  • Go on, say it. Go to the nearest mirror, look yourself straight in the eyes and say out loud: “I love you _____ (insert your full name).” Watch what happens to your eyes, to your face, to your heart. Breathe into it and say it again, out loud.
  • Take a Love time-in. Instead of diving into the next project, phone call, FB message, or email – stop. Set aside your electronics. Sit on your couch or bed or a comfy chair. Close your eyes with both hands on your heart. Breathe into your heart. Sit there until you feel ready to get up again. Notice how you feel in your body and what happens when you do this.
  • Simple pleasures rock. What is the simplest pleasure that you Love but always seem to wait for someone else to get or do for you? For me, it’s flowers. I Love flowers, yet I would rarely buy them for myself. I was always thinking maybe “someone else” would surprise me with them (i.e. this is lame, so please do not do this to yourself — let my re-donk-u-lous-ness be an example for you). Finally I started buying them for myself. Now every time I walk by my fresh bouquet of flowers, I beam. They make me happier than happy, and for $10-20, who can beat that?
  • Put it in ink. Go to the store and buy the most romantic greeting card you can find. You know, the one that makes you sigh with Love. Then, go home, pour yourself a great glass of red (or champagne, or tea or kombucha — your choice), get cozy (soft music and fireplace kind of cozy) and write inside the card a love letter to yourself. Thank yourself for being the incredible woman you are. Thank yourself for your beauty, your brilliance, your light, your gifts. Go all out. Say everything our culture says you aren’t supposed to say for fear of “being in ego” (which is actually not true, so ignore that silly thought) or being “arrogant.” Applaud yourself for being the kick-ass woman that you are. Then re-read the card, slowly. Re-read it several times. Put it up somewhere where you can read it often
  • Tap it out. Anytime you find yourself thinking unloving or negative thoughts about yourself, stop. Tap Cortices with a focus on connecting to the deep Love within you and say out loud “I choose to Love myself even amidst this.” Take some deep breaths as you do this to clear the unloving energy. Re-focus yourself on the present moment and being kind to yourself.
  • Share your Love. Get some colored post-its. Write a Love message on each one. Make sure it’s a Love message that you would Love to receive. Examples: “I love you,” “You’re beautiful,” “You make the world a more special place,” “You glow with Love,” “The world needs you,” “Thank you for being here.” Create your own as well. Keep these with you — in your car, bag, etc. — and put them out at the gym, restaurants and cafes, events, etc.

And here’s the wow factor from all of this — as you connect to the Love that is already within you, you’ll find that you’ll want to share it with more people. The post-it notes will simply be the tip of the Love iceberg. Once we connect to the Love within us, the desire to share it with all we meet becomes profound. Then, guess what happens? People can’t stop sharing the Love that they are feeling with you! Before you know it, Love is pouring into you because you are now a magnet for it.

You see, we can’t attract or experience anything that we aren’t already tuned in to in some way. Remembering that we have all of the Love we need already and then sharing it from that abundant place, allows us to experience it at a level we never before could have imagined.

Have fun with this and use your Love practices daily to allow you and all those around you to go Higher into Loving.

111GroupSessI love a New Year.
It’s full of fresh possibilities and opportunities. Can you feel it? Even the air is beginning to feel fresher. The slate has been wiped clean and we are ready to co-create more Magic than ever before!

And while it’s true that every day is a new beginning, the turning over of a New Year opens doors to possibilities on a grand scale. Energetically shifting into a New Year creates a powerful matrix for a higher level of co-creation with Spirit. And who doesn’t love that?! I know I do.

To support you during this time, below is one of my favorite rituals ever! It’s deeply cleansing and sets a new vibrational frequency to expand into.

Get ready for 2015 to be your most spectacular year yet!
Follow the New Year’s Day ritual below and it will be. Seriously. I do not mess around with this stuff – as you know. These rituals are downloaded from Higher Consciousness to support you in your expansion into whatever level of awesome you are ready for.

  • Create a sacred space of 40-60 minutes (depends on how deeply you go into the journaling portion) for this powerful ritual. Light some candles, put soft music on, have your favorite crystals out – anything to do to set the energetic frequency of this being a sacred ritual.
  • If you are feeling out of balance in any way, do this 8 minute general balancing session to bring yourself into greater alignment with who you really are.
  • Then, tap Cortices with the focused intention of balancing your entire brain and connecting to your Higher Power.
  • Take out your 2014 calendar – whether you use an online calendar or a paper one.
  • Take out your journal and write “January 2014” and write the highlights of what occurred for you in that month. Then write anything that occurred during that month that you would like to leave in 2014 and not take with you into 2015. Do this for each month. For those who did an intention ritual last year, now is the time to pull out that list, read the items – noting what items manifested for you in 2014 and when.
  • Once you’re complete with this, review by re-reading to see if anything else pops in for you.
  • Then, burn what you have written. As you burn the papers, bless 2014 and feel yourself opening up to new creations in 2015. For those with a ritual from last year, you’ll also want to burn that paper as well.
  • Tap Cortices again – this time with a focus on connecting to your Divine Destiny for 2015.
  • Call in your guides and angels of the Highest Light to support you in being connected to your Divine Destiny in 2015.
  • Sit quietly for several minutes in a meditative position, breathing deep – inhaling through the nose to gather up whatever does not serve you and exhaling out your mouth to release it from your body-mind.
  • Place one hand on your heart and one hand on your pelvis and continue breathing deeply for several more minutes. Imagine that you are sinking in deeper and deeper into your connection with your passion and purpose.
  • Then, slowly open your eyes and bring your attention back to the room you are in.
  • Take out your journal and write your top 11 desires for 2015 – what are you calling forth into this New Year? Connect to all areas of your life – abundance, Soul Purpose, relationships, romance, home, wealth consciousness, etc.
  • Re-read silently once you are done.
  • Then re-read out loud saying, “I now call forth into my life in 2015 the following with ease and grace…” and then state each item out loud. Once you are finished reading say, “So be it. And so it is. It is done.”
  • Place this list in a special envelope and place it underneath your mattress for the year (I like to put mine right under my side of the bed where I sleep for optimal activation during sleeping hours).
  • Close your ritual by thanking your guides & angels of the Highest Light and by blowing out your candle(s).
  • To anchor in the ritual, go for a walk out in nature, imagining that as you walk you are rooted your intentions into the Earth. Bonus: walk barefoot in the grass to root yourself and your intentions into the Earth.

Be sure to leave a comment below with how this ritual unfolded for you or drop me a note on the FB!

And if you want to super-charge your intentions for 2015, join us via phone or remotely for our Divine Alignment 1/11 group Soul Alignment session “Let 2015 Be Your Most Abundant & Kick-Ass Year Yet”.

Whatever path you choose, I wish you an abundant, joyful and amazing 2015!
With Love & Magic,

You know that time is coming, right? When you load up the car and make your way… back home. Maybe it’s down the street or an hour’s drive or just a Skype session away.

Whatever the stitch, the holidays often mean returning back to old dynamics, to people who knew us way back when – you know, before we were as aware, conscious and amazing as we are now. And often walking back into these old dynamics can unleash a shit storm within ourselves — as well as externally — that can make the holidays the least wonderful time of year.

Well, not anymore.

There are three ways you can make this year the year it all goes differently. The year you have a genuine smile on your face as you walk through that door, pick up the phone or open Skype. This is the year the holidays and home aren’t a struggle, but a welcome experience.

Think I’m dreaming? Try out the three tips below and see for yourself!

  1. Set your intention.
    As cheesy as it might sound, expectation and intention is everything. We literally get what we expect. So prior to your holiday interactions, get really clear about the kind of holiday experience you desire. It can be as simple as “I desire to have the best holiday I’ve ever had!” In fact, sometimes just keeping the intention that simple can allow the Universe to surprise you with an amazing holiday that you previously could not even fathom. If you have serious negative expectations about what is possible for the holidays, do some journaling about your negative expectations and then write out what would be ideal for you. Let yourself feel how good it would feel to enjoy every minute of your holiday time. Simmer in those feel-good emotions and then let yourself return to them before and during your holiday. In serious negative expectation cases, it’s highly advisable to have some kind of balancing session – counseling, energy medicine, etc. prior to the interaction so that you are clear and grounded and less likely to be in a state of stress.
  2. Have tools you can use handy.
    YouTube access during the holidays could inevitably be your saving grace (thank god yet again for smartphones). Check out the Cortices tapping here and use it to stay balanced en route to or before seeing/talking with family. Triggered? Tap Cortices several times in a row with a focus on connecting to your Higher Power and staying balanced. Really, super, freakin’ triggered? Try this general balancing session (it’s only eight minutes long — so go lock yourself in the family bathroom and use it!). Taking deep breaths anytime you feel irritated or annoyed will help move the energy through. Breathe deeply by inhaling through the nose and exhaling out the mouth to move and release tension. In fact, deep breathing contributes to 70 percent of our body’s ability to heal itself! Keep some Calms Forte handy for natural anxiety relief and drink three to four liters of water each day to keep your system moving, grounded and balanced.
  3. Limit alcohol and refined sugar intake.
    I know, I know — isn’t that exactly what the holidays are all about — indulgence? Well, not if you want to have an enjoyable time in dynamics that are typically highly charged. It doesn’t mean you can’t imbibe or snack at all — but keep it moderate. Both alcohol and sugar can elevate tensions and bring old wounds to the surface that are unnecessary to discuss while in the midst of the holidays. If you really want to talk to your mom about why she dressed you in floral prints for most of your childhood and gave you a bowl haircut which resulted in a hideous stage that lasted all the way through your teen years (don’t worry mom – I’m saving that conversation for the New Year), save that for a private, sacred time when both of you are stimulant-free and can discuss more thoroughly your demands for therapy reimbursement for said traumas.

The best part in all of this is remembering that you get to choose how you experience your life. It’s true you can’t control crazy Aunt Laura or your cousin Larry’s inability to hold an intelligent conversation — but you can control how you react to what happens around you.

The tools above will set you up for massive success this holiday season and who knows, you just might find yourself humming the tune to “it’s the most wonderful time of the year!”

We’re sliding into the darkest day of the year, Sunday December 21.
And with it comes an opportunity to release, manifest and create the start of a truly mind-blowingly fantastic New Year.

Ritual is a powerful way to commemorate and harness powerful energy to align more fully with the life of your dreams, and that’s why I LOVE tuning in and creating rituals for my community.

WinterSolsticeAltarFollow the Winter Solstice Ritual below to set the stage for your release, your peace and your ultimate magnificence!

  • Set aside 30-40 minutes of peaceful space for yourself. First, read through the ritual so you know what you’ll need to make it flow with ease.
  • Tap Cortices with the focused intention of connecting to your Source and aligning with the perfect release & manifestation for your Winter Solstice Ritual.
  • Create a Winter Solstice altar. This can be on your dining room table, a small stand, or an existing altar converted for this seasonal ritual – follow your intuition on what feels right for you!
  • The most important component of the altar is fire (for winter – bringing in the light!), so be sure to have a candle or two or three as part of your altar space.
  • Once you have your altar set-up with what you’d like – ideas include winter plants, holiday cards, meaningful items, candles, meaningful jewelry – sage the space. As you sage say, “I now call in the Highest Light for this Winter Solstice.” Feel free to add anything else that comes through you!
  • Take out your journal and write down whatever you would like to release as you saunter into 2015. If you get “stuck” or feel like you need help remembering what to release – tap Cortices and call on your angels and guides of the Highest Light to support you in being fully aligned in your release.
  • Once you feel complete, review the list one final time, saying “good-bye” to each item on your list. I like to blow each one a kiss and wish it well as it is released once and for all. Remove the piece of paper from your journal.
  • Then, take one of the candles on your altar and light this paper on fire. Be sure to do this near a sink, fireplace, etc. – somewhere safe to burn paper.
  • Bless the paper as it burns and smile – knowing you are releasing the ‘dark’ within and around to open up space for more Light in your life.
  • Dance! Dance for 11 minutes. I recommend putting Pandora on – a station that moves you – and invoke Spirit to set your 11-minute playlist. Say out loud, “Guides & Angels of the Highest Light – please bring me the perfect songs to accompany my Winter Solstice dance as I shake off the old and connect to the New.” And then don’t be surprised when Taylor’s Swift’s “Shake It Off” comes on. 😉 Oh! And keep a piece of paper handy – I am always blown away by the messages that come through for me via the songs.
  • Once your dancing is complete, tap Cortices with a focused intention of connecting to the Light that wants to come through for you in 2015.
  • Write in your Journal the Light you are calling forth in your life – in your “career” (I add quotes because long gone are the days of compartmentalizing giving our Soul’s gifts to the world. Learn more here.), personal relationships, romance/Love, health, wealth, home, car/transport, experiences/travel and anything else that flows in for you.
  • Re-read and as you do Bless each item, imagining that you are making space in your heart and in your life for these new waves of Light to be brought forth.
  • Place your Light list for 2015 in a special envelope and place it on your altar.
  • Tap Cortices with a focused intention of moving forward into your Solstice day with ease and grace. If you feel called, sage the space again to bring completion to the ritual.
  • Keep the candle burning at all times when you are home (in a safe, protected way of course).
  • Keep your altar up through 1/1/15. After that, place your envelope under your mattress or in a sacred spot to be opened and released during the Spring Equinox. I do rituals of this magnitude on the Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, Fall Equinox – each one unique in its own way. And I promise to share these rituals with you during every season so we can do this together! When I open my Winter Solstice Light manifestations on the Spring Equinox, I’ll often take anything yet unmanifested that I still desire (a lot of times the desire is complete too!) and add it to my Spring Equinox Birth intentions. It’s up to you! Follow the flow that feels most in alignment for you.

Enjoy this incredible time of going within and then celebration with family and friends.
I am so grateful that you are part of my swirl!
