Monkey Time

Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.” Samuel Ullman

This month, please enjoy an excerpt "Monkey Time" from my book, "Messages Are Everywhere".

The light is shining brightly. The air sweetly caresses my face as I stroll along the path in Costa Rica. Butterflies dance around in colors of royal blue, banana yellow, and striking orange. The palm trees click in the breeze creating a soothing sound.
Looking over to my left, I watch as the turquoise blue ocean peddles in and moves out, as I become aware of my breathing coming in and going out. Easy does it, I have all the time in the world to relax and take it all in.

I hear rustling and turn to see a monkey hanging upside down from the tree. He appears to be playing hide and seek with me. I begin to laugh, and he cocks his head at me. I feel so happy and joyous! I feel like a young child again, spontaneous and connected with the whole world. That’s what I’m looking for...a little fun, it’s good to have fun! I start skipping along as I once did many years ago. It feels so freeing to just let go. I am humming with the beat of the jungle. We love to laugh, dream, have fun and just be. We’re human “beings” on this journey not human doings.

When you have feelings of fatigue, irritability or depression these are signs that you’re off center and you need to inject some fun into your day. Simple pleasures such as watching a funny movie, or laughing with a dear one are easy but important ways to have fun. And they don’t have to cost a lot of money or take a lot of time. When we take the time to laugh and play we raise our vibration of energy. Playing can be magical, as it brings us to a joyful state, clears our mind and opens us up so we can tap into divine wisdom. This joy brings us to a place of creativity.

Take time to play, and let your creative juices flow. Have fun and enjoy the ride! You deserve to have pleasure, happiness and joy.

You are a Sovereign Being

Honor Your Own Process

We are in the gateway to a cosmic awakening. A dismantling is occurring of the old outdated structures and programs, within our government, politics, economic and social arenas collapsing the old, so the new can take birth. The distortions are being amplified, revealed and released...over and over again in 2020. 

The awakening is occurring whether we are ready or not. During this time of transparency, we are becoming aware of our own individual distortions. We may see how we've individually played a part in the distortions we are experiencing, and that's divinely orchestrated, as it's from this awareness that we can alter and shift our perspectives. With self-compassion and forgiveness we can release the anomalies that have tethered us down in judgement and guilt. Our ego has wanted to save face by not admitting when we have been out of alignment with our truth. All of our misalignments are being revealed to be released. This clearing opens us up to the higher dimensional timelines.

I am available and can assist you to let go and release anomaly's and express yourself in a sacred and nurturing environment. Please see the new class below titled "The Sanctuary," where I provide a templet so you can move through this shift with grace and ease. You can experience this shift in a balanced, neutral place of observation, similar to being in the eye of the storm and not being affected by the noise and chaos.
Ride the higher timeline during this chaotic time. Allow the light in, and allow others to experience the change however they choose. You are a sovereign being and it is time to go within to honor your unique divinity. Honor your own process!

Home is where the Heart is

Creating a Home Sanctuary

As we are all spending more time in our homes, we are reminded "Home is where the heart is." It is a wonderful time to get our space into shape by incorporating our sacred articles to accommodate our needs, and create a peaceful, lovely place for us to dwell, reconnect and flourish.

Creating quiet time for reflection, prayer and contemplation is of the utmost importance. You can create a special space within your home for this time of reflection. Maintain a level of consistency and plan on a meditation practice whenever you feel it's best, perhaps first thing in the morning and/or before you retire to bed.

Journaling is a wonderful way to create awareness. You become aware of times when you have moved out of alignment with your distorted thoughts and feelings, and you can make adjustments moving forward with clarity and confidence. Remember to do this from a place of unconditional non-judgmental love. When you sit in silence in your sacred space, you will make the connection and have "aha moments" on how best to negotiate and create your life.

Following are some helpful tips in creating a serene environment for you to live and experience your best life.

1.Before you arise out of bed, set your attention on your intention for the day. For example, if you want to experience yourself in well-being, take at least 17 seconds to feel into that space of well-being. Visit this space of well-being often throughout your day to bring yourself into a centered balanced state.

Make your bed every day, the moment you get out of the bed, as this sets the stage for the rest of the day. Create a comfortable place to pray and or meditate. Be prepared with your journal and pen to jot down your innermost thoughts and feelings.

2. Allow natural light in. Natural light, especially in the morning, sets your internal clock in motion. Open your curtains, use roll-up shades or half curtains.

3. Now is the perfect time to de-clutter! A lot of people who feel stressed out in their homes without quite understanding why begin to feel more at ease once their environment is pared down. When you organize things, you discover what’s meaningful and necessary, that happens on visual and psychological levels. You only see things of great value, and there is no visual noise. Your mind eases because you know that you have done some good work to keep all of your stuff and papers manageable. You are only allowing space in your sanctuary for what is important.

4. Bring some nature inside by taking your cue from the season and the surrounding landscape. Work with the four elements of air, water, fire and earth. Allow color into your life to lift and expand your spirits, by incorporating your favorite shades and hues.
  • Get some inexpensive plants and create a calming ritual of watering them.
  • Accessorize with some crystals, smooth stones, wood branches or seashells.
  • Bring home fresh flowers.
  • Display a photo or painting of a nature scene.

5. Utilize scent in your home. Oil diffuser sticks are wonderful, as they work and last for upwards of six months.

6. Use light with dimmer switches, or change some light bulbs to pink (pink is probably best in your bedroom) rather than turning on that full blast fluorescent overhead light. This gives you more control over your lighting mood, setting the best situation for you to relax. You can also use candles. 

7. Music sets the tone for you to experience yourself. Sound and music is one of the gifts of living. Music can be therapeutic and calm you down or give you a mood boost if you need it. Everyone likes it, and everyone has some. Why not turn off the news programs that send negative information into your home now and then, and curate your own relaxed or happy mood with your own choice in music?

These are some of the ways to create a sanctuary in your home, which will help you to relax, reconnect and remember who you are! Repeat often, " I am lLove. I am Light."
