Finding love and acceptance for your body

Finding love and acceptance for your body

Remaining open to the possibilities isn’t always easy. I know that. It’s easy to feel trapped and immovable by your circumstances. I want to assure you that change IS possible, you are able to change your situation by changing your actions in any area of your life.   How you do anything is how you do everything. This is true. If you want to lose weight, try losing resentment and finding forgiveness for another difficult situation in your life. Releasing in one area will release in others. This is true. Try changing the way you look at things.   How can you find love and acceptance for yourself and your body, regardless of shape or size? Try accepting another situation in your life. This will create a pathway for acceptance in all other areas of your life. This is an energetic truth. Sometimes you may need support. Accept support and help, and gifts from others. I know it can be a struggle. Accepting and receiving can be a challenge, but there are people out there who are willing and able to help you. In all areas of your life.   Want to love your body?   Find other ways to love yourself. Write a list of things you appreciate about yourself. Write out everything, even the tiny things or things that are easily taken for granted, like “I am grateful for my feet and legs because I can walk.” To find the beauty in your body, find beauty elsewhere. Open yourself to beauty and acceptance. Love yourself. Love others and accept love from others. It’s not easy, but it’s...
My KonMari journey~ part two.

My KonMari journey~ part two.

I am chronicling my KonMari journey in my journal. There is more written there than I thought would be. Many things from my past (even distant past) are coming up and out for me to deal with and heal from. This is a process that can either be done all at once, or spread out over time. She recommends doing it all at one time. It is drastic and even shocking (especially when you’ve been in the same house for 21 years.) To the neighbors it looks like I am moving, a startling number of boxes out in the yard and an insane amount of trash waiting to be picked up. All of those book-books. Oh my. I am releasing some nice things and I hope they find good homes where they will be appreciated. Black lace skirts that weren’t flattering, old shirts from Anthropology that will *never* fit me again (who am I kidding?) I did share some books with friends.   What I didn’t expect was the emotions that came up as I watched them drive off with my belongings. Those were mine. I even have a sneaking suspicion that in the bottom of one of the boxes was a stack of Tarot cards I had been saving to sell on Amazon. Some quite valuable. Gone now (I think.) I had someone help me lug the boxes out to the yard and as of then it was too late, they were out of my house and there was an empty space where we could finally walk.     These raw emotions were something I never expected. In...
Prosperity Crystal Grid

Prosperity Crystal Grid

  “When you are able to shift your inner awareness to how you can serve others, and when you make this the central focus of your life, you will then be in a position to know true miracles in your progress toward prosperity.” ~Wayne Dyer~     I wanted to share one of the grids I created for prosperity. The crystals involved are:   Lodestone~ For magnetism and attraction   Citrine~ Money and attracting wealth   Green aventurine~ Healing ‘issues’ around money and abundance   Clear Quartz~ To activate and intensify the intention of this grid.   My written intentions and affirmations (read aloud and placed under the grid mat)   The frog represents luck and wealth   Do you grid? I find the grids to be effective in communicating my intentions to the Universe (or God.) One thing I didn’t list though that is vitally important to any intention work, including grid ding, vision boards, spells and other focusing exercises intended to manifest. It’s EMOTION. Add a little intensity and emotion as you’re setting the purpose and clarifying what you are intending to create.  This strengthens anything you’re doing. Try it and if you’d like, email me and share with me what you’ve...
Is being needy a bad thing?

Is being needy a bad thing?

On being needy To say someone is needy is to describe a whiny, weak individual who is both a psychic vampire and the kind of person who can’t do things on their own… Right? They drain the people around them and have no will of their own.   Do you find yourself feeling like you have to go it alone? Do you feel that needing others is a sign of weakness?   I’m here to smash that myth. Needy is one of the most misunderstood words, used as an insult/derogatory way to describe an individual. I invite you to consider that ‘needing’ human contact is not weakness, it is a basic human need. Babies don’t thrive without touch, they need to be nurtured and touched, they need others around them (and it is not just to meet their physical needs, children who are not loved grow up troubled and it truly damages them.   It is the same as we grow, we thrive on that nurturance and we go a lot farther in our endeavors with support (even if just emotional) from our community/peers.   Does that mean ‘vamping’ others? (sucking dry their resources without giving in return.) Nooooo, certainly not. The law of giving and receiving comes into play here, when we receive love and support, if we hoard it and not allow it to flow from us, we disturb the natural order and then we are at risk of becoming that annoying psychic vampire who takes, takes takes. When we are loved, we also must love, even if it is not directly to the person who gave...
A confession and an invitation

A confession and an invitation

What are you passionate about? What do you want to achieve? Where do you want to be in 2015? I know that since this is the beginning of the new year you might be thinking about these things. What do you want to bring more of into your life? What are your goals for 2014? New years resolutions… Did you set any? It’s time for me to be a bit transparent about my own passions, and the direction I am embracing. I realized that while I am following a path that brings me excitement and pleasure, I am *still* not FULLY combining all of the elements that make me unique! One of the things I do is to help others recognize and build on their own unique way that they show up in their lives. I have learned these things for myself and one of my greatest passion is to help others find their way as well. Have I ‘arrived’ though? Have any of us arrived? What does that even mean? I was having a day filled with confusion, a feeling that something is missing and I am not showing up fully as 100% *me.* It wasn’t obvious to me at first, but I set the intention for it to be revealed to me throughout the day and that it be obvious to me. That request was answered, I was looking around at what some of my peers were doing and I suddenly felt very “beige.” What was missing?? I will share it with you! I left out Tarot from my website. While I utilize the cards in my...
7 Ways to Love Your Body

7 Ways to Love Your Body

  1~Proper Nourishment~ One of the best ways we can love our body is to take care of it by giving it the proper nourishment. Giving the body REAL food, and staying away from processed crap with ingredient lists so long and unpronounceable that we don’t even know what we’re eating. The standard american diet is filled with “healthy” foods that come in pretty packages, and we are so cut off from the source of our food that our children think meat comes from the supermarket and not from a once living thing, and vegetables are taken from cans or from that cold aisle in the grocery store. Know what you are eating, appreciate it’s source and prepare your food with love, care and reverence.   2~Water~ Proper hydration is not only important for our very lives, but it reduces bloating, assists with weight loss, reduces hunger (thirst is often mistaken for hunger) and improves overall physical health.   When you get all of your fluid needs from juices, sodas and other sugary drinks, you are not enhancing your health, rather you are adding empty calories and it affects your blood sugar, causing spikes and crashes in energy. How much water do you need? Studies have given differing recommendations, from 8 glasses a day, to a certain amount per body weight. However, if we are eating a healthy, clean diet, we are getting some of our water needs through our food, so generally let thirst be a guide and don’t force yourself to drink just because you feel it is what you need. The amount we need differs. Replacing...
