May 1, is Global Love Day – a day where we can celebrate Love worldwide!

 

It’s a day to honor Love as a unifying and peace-inducing force on this Earth.

 

Below are our top recommendations for how to spread the Love, feel the Love, and BE the Love in honor of this most important holiday:

 

  • Leave Love Notes everywhere you go today. Grab some sticky notes and write things like, “You’re so Loved!” “You’re beautiful.” “Thank you for being in the world.” “I love you.” “You are a blessing.” and leave them in bathrooms, at the gym, at the café, post office, library – anywhere your daily life takes you.

  • Wear Love Gear everywhere you go today. You will spread the Love JUST by being you.

  • Reach out to your favorite global friend. Let him/her know how happy you are they exist in the world. Ask about what is lighting them up in their world and how you can support their happiness at this time. BONUS: If you have an international calling plan and so do they, give them a ring!

  • Make your focus on social media today all about spreading LOVE. Even if you’re having a less-than-fabulous day, even if you don’t feel like it, even if there are things to complain about – make your commitment today to spreading LOVE. Post your favorite Love quote or even share our Instagram and Facebook Love posts with your peeps.

  • Buy a potted plant. Ask to be Divinely Guided on who to give it to. BONUS: If you don’t know the person, even better.

  • Update your phone’s voicemail to close with words of Love. You can be straight to the point and end your voicemail with “I Love you” or “Please know how Loved you are and how grateful I am that you’re in the world.” You can end by saying, “Sending you much Love!” – whatever is most authentic for you. We want people feeling the Love even when we can’t be there to give it to them directly.

  • Look at yourself naked in the mirror today. Make eye contact with yourself and say, “I Love you so much. Thank you for being in this gorgeous body.” This is deeply vulnerable and healing.

  • Be present for whatever you are feeling today. Whatever it is. Just BE with it. Imagine you are surrounding the feeling in Love as you are present with it.

  • Tune in to your Higher Wisdom and ask who needs to hear how Loved they are today. Then, call them up and let them know how you feel. BONUS: If it’s someone you rarely see or say “I Love you” to or even better, someone you have never told before!

  • What do you LOVE to do for FUN? Color? Dance? Sing at the top of your lungs? Garden? Whatever it is – DO some of that today!

  • If you’re in a relationship, spend 11-22 minutes cuddling. This releases oxytocin and brings more Love to each of you. If you’re single, cuddle up with yourself for 11-22 minutes.

  • Make the commitment to volunteer 1 day a month for an organization that is doing good in the world. When we join forces together, even more Love is created.

  • Drink more water. Your body will thank you for it. BONUS: Bless the water with your right hand before drinking it.

  • Put your hands on your body – especially the parts of your body you haven’t always been nice to and say, “I Love you” – visualize that you are beaming Love energy into that body part.

  • Read a Love Poem out loud to your children, to your Lover, to a friend. I love Pablo Neruda and Rumi…(if you needed suggestions).

  • Only put food you truly Love inside your body today (make sure your body Loves it too, example: donuts – your body doesn’t actually like them, your addictive aspects do :)). BONUS: Bless your food with Love and the Highest Light.

  • Bless the earth, everywhere you go (and the sky and plants and trees and animals) – hold up your right hand and say, “I bless you and I Love you.” BONUS: Touch the trees/animals/ground anywhere possible to add further connection.

 

Make today all about Love. Love of yourself. Love of others. Love of this Earth. And that’s how we really celebrate Global Love Day!

(Hint, you could make this everyday…)

In October 2014, my photo went before John of God in Brazil* with 3 requests, one of which asked that I be 100% Spirit-Led.
By this time exactly in November of last year, I had just begun taking the blessed herbs that would support the integration of this request.

Immediately, health issues began. My romantic relationship began to show glaringly obvious signs of misalignment. I “knew” the truth of what needed to change on many levels but some part of my mind would not fully accept it or surrender. Maybe if I did this special diet for my health or had 3 sessions a week or tried more meditation, maybe if we went to more therapy or I practiced the Law of Attraction more fully on the relationship – maybe then it would all change to be exactly the way I wanted it to be.

Except, I was avoiding the one truth I knew all to well – there’s no messing with your Destiny baby. There’s no messing with Divine Timing. You can’t Law of Attraction your way out of your path. You can’t energy medicine your way out of what your body demands you go through. You cannot control the uncontrollable.

And btws, it is all uncontrollable.

By uncontrollable I mean – there is not a damn thing you can do to make something/someone you want to have happen, happen if it is not in your Highest Good. There is not a damn thing you can do to make something/someone go away that is meant to be felt and uncovered and experienced by you.

And by all, I mean everything except your reactions, behaviors and most of your actions. Those are the only things you are truly ever in control of. Most of the time. I say most of the time because there are some actions we can’t understand why we took them – in my case, why I wrote that I wanted to be 100% Spirit-led – because Spirit is actually strongly nudging us to take that necessary action.

And because you are in control of your reactions, behaviors and most of your actions – there are myriads of aligned things you can be/do to make whatever life experience you are in more abundant, more joyful, more love-filled, more in-flow, more at peace. But you cannot change or control the outcomes to your specifications. And this is a very good thing because your specifications suck. I’m sorry to say it, but someone had to. You really don’t know what the best outcome for you is. You might have a taste of it, a hint of it, but you don’t actually know how incredible your life is truly meant to be. So stop trying to micro-manage it.

In more eloquent terms, what I’m trying to say here is that what your (and my) Higher Self and Spirit Team have in store for you (and me) is so much better than what you (and I) can dream up. Thankfully.

But trust me, I know this line of thought hardly suffices in the midst of wanting so badly something to be other than it is.

I wanted so badly for things to be different last year. I wanted to be an even “bigger” success in my business. I wanted to want what the people around me were telling me was “next” for me – speaking on bigger stages, being on TV, hitting 7-figures and beyond. I wanted to have the most beautiful, intimate and amazing wedding ever. I wanted the man I loved at that time to be the Love of my Life. I wanted my body to cooperate with all of this along with seeing 20-30 clients a week and large group sessions and classes and retreats and social events.

But no amount of my wanting was going to make what was so necessary for me to experience not occur. There was no changing what the larger part of me had set into motion with that request to be 100% Spirit-led.

And so on 1/22/2015, Spirit did for me what I could not. Brought to my knees, I could no longer fight for what I knew was my Destiny, my path, what I must go through and evolve into and be and become.

I often questioned – why in the hell would I write down a request to be 100% Spirit-Led? Why would I do that to myself? Who is the person who does that?

Who I really am, the core of me, the Source Self me – she wrote that request. She knew the health “stuff” was a huge detoxing and awakening, she knew the wedding could not take place and the engagement had to end so that I could become who I really am (and only becoming more of every day).

It was only then that I could be and was reborn.

Reborn to my deepest, most tender, most vulnerable heart.
Reborn to the Soul of me.
Reborn to the core of me.

No longer the “dream” of a certain kind of success (that looks like what she or he or they are having).
Not the dream of a marriage that looks like ______.
Not the dream of how my life is meant to unfold.

But rather, the core of what matters most to my Higher Self, to the true me, to the woman that I am here to be:
Peace.
Love.
Laughter. And a lot of it.
Deep connection with self. With Source. With those I love and with those I don’t love.

I finally “got” it. And I’m sure I’ll be “getting” it even more as I evolve. But this is so gigantically huge for me I am marinating in its luxuriousness as much as I possibly can.

I’ve been reborn to what truly matters, realizing that the momentum of my “former” life, of my life last year in particular, was like a fun and scary roller-coaster – but even so it was not the best I can or could be.

Today, now a year – almost to the day – since I began taking the blessed herbs infused with my requests (which had also included the request for my wedding to go smoothly and my book The Quest to become a bestseller – remember that if we make requests that are not in our Highest Good, we will find out soon enough what the true truth is!) – I am a woman I fall more in love with every day.

What matters most now is following Spirit fully – being in service to Spirit, in service to my path and in service to those I am here to serve in the Highest Light.

What matters now is letting peace and home and family (the healthy, Soulful kind) and community and connection to be my most valued experiences.

It’s about following all of the signs that are everywhere, all of the time. It’s about following the nudges to go here or there. It’s about paying attention to the songs “randomly” popping into my head or the snippets of conversation from others around me that make their presence known to me. It’s about following the chills and the Soul tears.

What matters most now is having a Rich life in every sense of the word. Feeling rich. Enjoying the luxury of all that is around me. Being connected to my Highest Path and settling not for one minute on anything other than the Divine – that’s what fills me up. That’s what matters.

It’s not a matter of “finding” my husband or partner anymore. It’s about allowing the Love of my Life into my life experience at the Divinely aligned time that he/she is meant to arrive (I do not assume that my personality knows the gender of my Beloved either – all is surrendered to my Highest Path.)

It’s not a matter of making 7,8,9-figures – it’s about having the most joyful, flexible, ecstatic ways available to share my gifts that are beyond my wildest dreams (thus far – Spirit is knocking this out of the park!).

It’s not a matter of going everywhere and doing everything. It’s about tuning in to the frequency of people and events and experiences that will nourish and delight and expand me.

It’s not a matter of finding what will make me happy. It’s about being happy – not because everything is going my way but because I’m ALIVE and experiencing life and that is more than enough!

It’s not a matter of looking perfect and having the perfect skin, face and body. It’s about feeling a respect and honoring of my life’s journey and the body and face and skin I inhabit and get to travel in, in this lifetime.

It’s not a matter of finding the perfect home or the perfect homestead property. It’s about lining up my energy so that my Divinely aligned home/property comes into my life experience with ease.

This is truly living to me.

I’m calling it Spirit-led 11.0. A new paradigm of untold proportions is here for those of us called to this path.
And I am here. And I am in service to this path. And I am more joy-filled and more at peace than I have ever been.

Who.Knew. It defies all of my former logic.

But apparently, I did. I knew. And I am oh-so-grateful.

*I have not kept track of how many times I have received “healing” from John of God – but it has been consistently 1-2x’s a year for close to 8 years now.

The news of George Clooney’s recent engagement to Amal Alamuddin seemed to ripple into the far corners of the Western world shocking everyone, including myself. I mean, could it really be true? Could the ultimate bachelor suddenly have decided that “forever love” was now in fact for him?

It seems as though it is true.

But hold on, because I’m about to shock you further. You see, I am quite certain that Clooney’s recent engagement is not just about Clooney. In fact, I have a sneaking suspicion that it has meaning for every single one of us in the Western world. So stick with me here, this theory might not be as crazy as you think.

Below is my take on why George Clooney’s engagement is a win for all of us:

1. Clooney represents the archetypal energy of what it means to be masculine in our culture. Think about it: Clooney represents what those in our culture consider the standard when it comes to being masculine. He’s cool, calm and collected — seemingly under all circumstances, good-looking, charming, sexy, confident, un-tie-down-able, ambivalent about commitment, intelligent, rich, always in control and dates much younger women. Over time, his grey hair and wrinkleshave actually made him sexier. When it comes to an icon of what it means to be a man — Clooney rules in our culture. And he has been revered as not only the sexiest man but also the sexiest life-long single man. That’s a huge message to men and women everywhere. Clooney’s choice to shift out of forever-bachelorhood into a committed, long-term marriage is a signal to all of us about the turning tide of the role of the masculine in our culture. That’s how powerful Clooney’s energy is. Expect more “single-forever” men to follow suit and go Clooney on us! Win!

2. Clooney’s choice of a successful, yet feminine woman is a sign of a huge cultural shift in the masculine and feminine coming together. Let’s face it: Clooney can have any woman he desires. The tiniest, shiniest lady on the planet if he so chooses. Instead, he chose a woman who is a human rights lawyer, who has a successful career that supports the bettering of the world and who is also a very beautiful, feminine woman. When a masculine archetype chooses an equally powerful divine feminine to be his partner, it creates a more solid and stable partnership that has a ripple effect throughout our culture. Two powerful people with a focus on creating a better world can have far more impact than just one. It also serves as an inspiration for more of us to come together with equally powerful partners to support the enhancement and betterment of our world. Success, for everyone!

3. Single and partnered folks everywhere need to celebrate — committed partnership is the new single. Up until now, Clooney’s freedom as an eternally single man was esteemed both by him personally and in the media. What he and many have discovered is that the greatest freedom occurs through and from deep loving. The only way to truly be free is to open our hearts to another in total vulnerability and love. Everyone from Jesus to Paulo Coelho has been telling us this for centuries. Yet still, an immature part of our culture hung on to a fantasy that being unattached in heart meant greater play and freedom. When one of our main masculine archetypes who loved to proclaim his power as a single man now chooses greater and deeper loving and commitment — watch for the rest of the Western world to follow. Married people can relax into a greater commitment with their partners while single people can open their hearts to allow true commitment in. Everyone wins!

Our cultural icons are our cultural icons because they have important messages to reflect back to us. Think of them as our modern-day royalty. They show us what we believe and where we’re at, good, bad or otherwise, and they give us an opportunity to shift into a higher frequency of alignment with who we really are. George Clooney is simply one example of this. Having made such a name for himself as a forever bachelor, his choice for marriage can have a wonderful, positive impact on all of us.

So go out there and pull a Clooney. Propose to that man/woman you love, spend more time in heart-centered connection with your partner, allow yourself to see the gifts that truly loving another brings. Relationships are our most important containers for spiritual growth. Looks like even Clooney knows this now.

Awesomeness alert: My dear friend Gabrielle Bernstein is throwing down some hot knowledge about the key steps to manifesting your desires! In the Q and A below, Gabrielle gives us crucial guidance on how to truly manifest and achieve our goals in 2013. To top it off she’s also offering a FREE group-coaching course (of which I’ll be part of!) in December on the topic of manifesting.

Q – You are a self-proclaimed manifesting maven. Can you demystify this topic for us?

Gab- We are always manifesting. Each thought we have creates an energy flow within and around our physical being. This energy attracts its likeness. So if you’re thinking, “I suck,” then your energy kinda, well, sucks–and you attract sucky experiences.

The opposite experience occurs when you think high-level thoughts like, “I rock!” When you think and feel, “I rock,” you exude an energy of confidence and in turn attract great experiences into your life. Each thought you have informs your energy, and your energy manifests into your experiences. Your thoughts and energy create your reality.

Q – You talk about manifesting mishaps. Can you tell us more about this?

Gab – Manifestation has become a buzzword lately. Though it’s totally awesome that the Law of Attraction is now trendy, it also can be a bit misleading for folks who are unwilling to do the heavy lifting. If you truly want to use your energetic power to manifest greatness, you must clear all that blocks you from believing in your greatness.

A Course in Miracles teaches that on some level, you’ve asked for everything that happens in your life. Your intentions create your reality. There’s no need to beat yourself up: simply recognizing how your low-level thoughts negatively affect your life is the first powerful step toward changing your experiences. Begin your manifesting process by getting honest about how your low-level thoughts, energy and feelings of disbelief block you from receiving what you desire. Once you get clear about the blocks, you can begin to clean them up to clear space for positive manifestations to occur.

Many people, when trying to manifest, focus too much on the outside form rather than the internal condition. From A Course in Miracles perspective, what’s important is our internal experience: whether we choose to experience love or fear. When we commit to our internal experience of love, we begin to attract more love. Many people approach manifestation from a place of “How can I get something to feel better?” Instead, the focus should be: “How can I feel better and therefore be an energetic match for attracting more greatness into my life?” The emphasis must be placed on healing the internal condition, not getting a hot new car or boyfriend.

Q – You have Five Principles for Manifesting Your Desires can you share them with us?

Gab: Here are my five key principles for genuine manifesting. When practicing these steps, make sure to stay committed to the goal of feeling good first and attracting stuff second. Continue to remind yourself that when you feel good you energetically attract goodness into your life. When your primary function is to be happy, then whatever comes to you is irrelevant. Happiness is your true manifestation.

Principle One: Clear Space

Before you begin the manifestation process you must take the necessary time to release all your disbelief in your power to be happy. One of the best ways to clear the blocks of disbelief is to pray for release. Begin a daily prayer practice of asking the Universe to set you free from all the limiting beliefs that block you from believing in your greatness. Stay open for signs from the Universe and show up for the assignments that are brought to you. Universal assignments come in many forms. Maybe you’re guided to the relationship that brings up all your shit so that you have to finally heal your fear. Or maybe you lose your job so that you can learn the lessons of self-reliance and strengthen your self-love. Trust that these assignments, however tough at times, are incredible opportunities for you to clean your energy and clear space to call in what you desire.

Your job in this step is to pray for guidance to clear all that blocks you from believing in your greatness. Then allow the Universe to help guide you to whatever assignments you need to aid in the healing process. Show up for the assignments and trust that the more you clean your thoughts and energy, the more positive experiences you will attract into your life.

Principle Two: Get Clear

Clarity is king when it comes to manifesting your desires. You must have clear intentions for what you want to call in–otherwise you can manifest a lot of what you don’t want. Focus on what you desire and then make a list of all that goes along with it. If you’re getting clear about the job you want, make a list of all the things about the job that make you happy: the office, the people, the salary, etc. Be unapologetic about what you want. This list helps you clarify your intentions and access a vibrant mental picture of what you desire.

The most important part of this step is to clarify how you want to feel. When you get clear on how you want to feel, you can begin to access that feeling. That feeling is what makes the manifestation come into form. You can write a thousand lists and make a million vision boards, but if you don’t clearly feel what you want to experience, it will never truly manifest into form.

Principle Three: Think It, Feel It, Believe It!

Now let’s put these steps together. Take your clear intention and spend time every day sitting in the feeling of what it is that you desire. You might access the feeling through meditation and visioning exercises. Or call on the feeling when you’re in nature or doing a form of exercise you love. Let the thought inform the feeling and let the feeling take over your energy. The more you feel the feeling of what you desire, the more you believe it is on the way. From a metaphysical perspective, if you believe it then it is already here. So make time for contemplating, thinking, feeling and believing.

Principle Four: Chill!

The next step is crucial to the manifestation process. In order to truly manifest your desires into form, you gotta chill out! A Course in Miracles teaches: “Those who are certain of the outcome can afford to wait and wait without anxiety.” Take this message with you and allow your faithfulness to guide you into the belief that what you desire is on the way. Also trust that the Universe has a much better plan than you do. Though you are clear about what you want, you cannot control the timing or the form in which it comes. Stay calm, relax and trust that the Universe has your back!

Principle Five: Know the Universe Has Your Back

When you’re in the know you’re deliberate about what you want. When you’re in the know you no longer vibrate energy of fear or disbelief. You just know. As your disbelief wilts away, wanting is replaced by knowing. Getting into the know happens naturally. When you diligently practice steps one through four, you will clean house, get clear and feel happier. This process is healing and powerful, and it leads to a deep inner knowing that you are right where you need to be. Accepting your greatness in this moment, right now, is what manifests more greatness. Being in the know helps you accept that you already are living in your desired manifestation. When you feel it, you live it–regardless of what is happening on the outside. In time, the Universe catches up with your energy and your desires come into form. This process of allowing the manifestation to follow your internal faith is the true process of co-creation.

Stay Committed to Happiness

Stay committed to this five-step process and trust that you’re exactly where you need to be. Is your main desire to feel good? Trust you will be given everything you need to create that feeling. Know that feeling good is the true manifestation–and everything else is the icing on the already delicious cake!

Q – Next week you’re offering a free course in Manifesting. Can you tell us more about this?

Gab: If you want to learn more about Manifesting you can get two free video coaching sessions on the topic. December 3rd and 12th I’m leading a course called How to Manifest Your Desires in 2013! The course is free when you order my new book May Cause Miracles. You will also receive my guided meditations, audio book intro and Authentic Power lecture.
