Musings & Messages

It has been a while since I wrote a blog and I struggled with my subject. I went on a two-week retreat, escaping from the city to a beautiful quiet spot where I had only my own thoughts to distract me. Well apparently that was enough because 6 days later and I still hadn't put anything on paper. 


That day I saw a rock in the lake with a small tree determinedly growing on top and I was filled with inspiration. Sentences came flooding through but still nothing on paper. And then the following day, in between the bursts of rain and sunshine, I looked up through the window and saw a beautiful heron standing on that same rock. Those of you that know me are well aware that I believe everything has a meaning and a message and that I receive my messages through the Archangel Gabriel.

The heron has always had a special significance to me. A power animal or totem, known for its medicine and strength of self-reflection, herons often appear to me at times of change, when I need to look deep into my thoughts and direction. Several years ago, when I was in a similar position in my life I was out for a walk at a nearby pond and saw a heron fly in and land. A moment later another flew in and landed, then another and another...  by the time they stopped there were 22 herons in the pond and I was in total awe.

As I continued to walk I turned up an old dirt road and they took off and followed me, sitting in the trees that lined both sides of the road. I was filled with a feeling of warmth and light, and saw clearly that this was a message for me that my contemplated life change was in alignment with my future. Looking inside was important but once the decision was made then the Divine number of 22 the master builder, showed me that it was time to move forward in trust and build my career. I went on to make life changes from which I have never looked back. And now here I am, at crossroads and in the perfect place for introspection, to rest and to get clarity on my next steps and my friend heron appears with a strong message for me and for all those who find themselves in a place where they need to make what appears to be a difficult decision.

“You think you are in a hard and difficult place but you are not. You are simply in the place of growth and change. See that little tree on the rock? That tree is not just surviving, it is growing on the rock and who would have thought that even possible. The seed of this tree found soil where it looked like there was none and began to take root. It was time for it to grow and it grew. It is time for you to grow and you are growing. Change your perspective about what is around you and allow what is there to feed your soul. Maybe it is not what you expected, but that is ok.

Feel excitement and be positive about is happening right now. With this energy you will change your life for the better. The old way of living, of seeing limitations first, is an illusion your mind created to keep you “safe”. You are safe, safe to explore, safe to be true to yourself and safe to be vulnerable. One step forward is all you need to think about right now. Take a step in the direction of what feels good to you. You don’t need to know your whole future just take one step and look for the symbols and messages that are all around you, we are always here to help you with the next step.”

That heron has flown by 3 times while I’ve been receiving this message. I get it, I get it, lol, when you see or hear something 3 times it is important to pay attention! It is a whole new world, I’m taking my next step and I’m choosing to enjoy everything about it instead of suffering over making the “right” decision!

I’d love to hear from you, comment below and let me know what step you are taking!

Sunshine & Blessings

What you believe is true!



Can you feel it?

 

Astrologically January was destined to be a month of openings that would continue all year and OMyGoddess, the door didn’t just open – it blew off!!

Yes, there are lots of situations going on all around us that are attempting to drag us into fear and uncertainty BUT we have a choice. We can choose to believe that is our future or to KNOW that we have the ability to attract the people and situations that make our lives happy and successful.

We get to choose who we listen to, who we spend time with, what we watch and what we listen to. We get to choose what INFLUENCES us. Can you feel the power of that?



What you believe is true!

If you ever thought that you were the victim of your circumstances this is the very time to embrace your own strength and courage, to associate with positive and loving people that inspire you and believe that you are special. What you think makes you, YOU!

Choose to believe in yourself this year and see yourself in the life you want to live. Feel the joy of that, the joy of fulfillment, the joy of success, the joy of purpose! It is that joy that will attract all that you need to create it.


What do I do every morning? I meditate and set intentions for the day. Every day I see myself living the life I wish to live and in the very moment I embrace that life – I am already attracting it!


Are you looking to reboot your life and accelerate into 2017? Stay tuned for tips to help you awaken the power and potential of your life!

Do Pets Reincarnate?


This is a remarkable story of love. My brother Doug had a dog named Bandit who was his best friend and went everywhere with him. Bandit had a little girlfriend, Cocoa, a black lab next door that he played with all the time and they were together whenever Doug went up the cottage. Sadly Bandit passed away earlier this year and Doug was devastated.

Around that time Cocoa was bred and few weeks after Bandit passed she was expecting! Cocoa had a beautiful litter of pups, some black and some the sandy colour of Bandit. Doug began posting pictures on Facebook of the puppies and all his friends were encouraging him to get one, sure enough he picked a little black puppy that he called Benny.



Bandit

Benny is the sweetest, most affectionate puppy and Doug loves him. This is so nice, BUT, the story doesn’t end there! Last month he posted a pic of Benny and one of his friends commented on how you could just see the love in Benny’s eyes.

Doug had taken the picture with his phone and was compelled to pull the picture up on his computer and what he saw when it was enlarged blew him away! He immediately sent me the picture and asked me what I thought. I was amazed, getting chills up and down my arms and I began to receive a message for Doug that he and Bandit had been together for many lives. Bandit had always been at his side to love and protect him and would always be with him! The message came with so much love I found it almost overwhelming!

Benny

When you enlarge the picture you can see Bandit in Benny’s eye. There is no picture of Bandit hanging anywhere in the house so it is not a reflection. And I know my brother - it is not Photoshopped!

There is so much more to life than we can possibly comprehend. I believe that souls never die and this is physical proof of spirit.

What do YOU think?

Is it time to start meditating?



The new year is coming fast and it is natural to think about how you would like your life to be in 2015. Would you like to feel calmer, more relaxed? How about lower your stress level? Studies show that many symptoms such as fatigue, high blood pressure, inability to focus, anxiety and insomnia are related to stress levels.



 “Meditation can wipe away the day's stress, bringing with it inner peace.”~ The Mayo Clinic


Is it time to start meditating?


Do you have to become a different person to meditate? Do you have to change how you eat, where you live or what you do for a living? There is a perception that meditation belongs to those that lean towards granola and New Age or hippie philosophies. Quite the contrary, meditation has become main-stream and celebrities from Oprah to David Lynch have publicly embraced the benefits they have experienced. There are very good reasons why meditation has been practiced for thousands of years and continues to attract new followers, from many different careers, cultures and locations, who are open to creating and receiving change in their lives. By sitting in silence, for a short period of time each day, you too can realize peace of mind and lower stress levels. By consistently practicing how to shut off your busy life for a few minutes every day you learn how to access a composed, centered state of mind and that helps you deal with the pressures of life from a calmer place.


Yes, meditating can be a challenge. I’ve been meditating for several years and I still have days when I fidget and fuss and instead of focusing on quieting my mind, I find myself planning my shopping list. In those moments I have learned to have patience with myself and just bring my focus back to my breathing. Like anything else you would like to become good at – you must practice. As any coach will tell you, in order to build the muscles in any area, you must work them out regularly.


7 Steps to Creating a Meditation Habit (In a Nutshell!)


  1. Pick a time of the day that is convenient for you (first thing in the morning is the best) and make a commitment to meditate for 30 days.
  2. Choose a quiet place and sit comfortably with a straight back for 10-15 minutes (to start).
  3. Close your eyes and begin breathing slowly through your nose. Your body recognizes deep breaths as a signal to begin relaxing.
  4. Consciously drop your shoulders and feel your body warm and heavy.
  5. If you find your mind wandering bring your focus back to your breath.
  6. Continue focused breathing until your time is up.
  7. Take a couple of minutes to bring your awareness back to the present and then move into the rest of your day relaxed.

Once you create this habit you will have found an easy, cost-effective way to bring wellness into your life.


Still not sure where to start?


As a meditation coach I can help you create a habit that can be sustained for the rest of your life. I have created and customized corporate meditation programs, meditation groups on Skype and in house and meditation and counseling for couples. For more information and schedules check out the Meditation page on the Sound Reiki Institute website.


Do you have any questions about meditating, or any comments on this blog? I would love to hear from you.


Namaste
