Believe In Your Dreams

Affirmation: Life really is about having dreams and making those dreams come true. I dream it. I believe it.  I do it.

The affirmation to follow our joy led Bea and I to a place commonly referred to as The Happiest Place on Earth ~ Disneyland.

My Nanny first took me to Disney when I was 8. I was so excited I thought I’d burst. I remember seeing the animal shaped bushes around the park for the first time and thinking, “This place is amazing! How come we don’t have bushes like that?” That same excitement I had when I was 8 hasn’t worn off either, I can’t tell you how happy and inspired I am every time I visit.

Not only is Disney one of our favorite places to visit, we both hold it very close to our hearts for a couple reasons.

  1.  We met there, and we have been friends ever since.
  2.  It’s a place where dreams are made and come to life.  It’s Disney that taught us that you can make your dreams come true, and what you need to do to make them happen.

We haven’t lived in the same place since we met 20 years ago, but we’ve still maintained our friendship and make a point to see each other quite often. I’ve seen Bea’s dreams continue to come true since then, and she’s seen mine.

Before we met, we were going to school in Canada in different provinces.  I was in Manitoba, Bea was in Ontario. We both have similar stories. We decided at a very young age that we wanted to work for Disney. When we told people, more often than not, we were told it was a pipe dream because we were Canadian. “How are you going do that? You’re from Canada,” they would say.  Neither of us knew. We just knew we’d do it. And low and behold, EPCOT was built, and in 1992, during the 20th anniversary of Disney World in Florida, we were both hired to work in the Canadian pavilion on the International College Program.

That’s the thing about dreams. People whether they are aware of it or not have a tendency to question yours. They do that because they don’t know or understand how it’s going to happen, and sometimes we take it to heart and become doubtful. The thing to remember is what they believe doesn’t matter.  It’s what you believe that matters.

You don’t need to know how your dream is going to come true. You just need to know that is, and believe in yourself enough that it will happen. That’s it. If you stay true to your dreams, the universe has a funny way of putting things in place to help make them come true. Your belief is your tool. It’s the hammer that’s going to drive the nail into the board, so keep dreaming keep believing.

Your dreams are worth living for. Dream it. Believe it. Do it. What’s your most impossible dream? Make the magic happen.

With love, light and faerie dust, ✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫

Answer The Call

Land Altar at Lightning in a Bottle - 2011

Affirmation: I answer the call and follow my joy. I trust where it leads me.

Do you follow joy or do you seek it out? How do you live your daily life, how do you make your choices? If we are choosing to live our lives seeking happiness, do we ever really find it? I will be happy when…. How many times have you heard, do you hear yourself saying that?

Let’s pause for a moment…. take a deep breath… and really taken in what it means to be following joy over seeking it. How does it make you feel when you see yourself choosing to follow joy? Following means you are happy now, doesn’t it? It means you make choices in a state of happiness which in turn guides you to make the choices that make you happiest. Remember we are creating our future with our choices now. As a result you are listening to your intuition, making better decisions, putting yourself in the right place at the right time, and doing the right thing at the right time.

Choose to be happy now. No matter what is going on around you. Your happiness now will guide to you to what you are seeking much faster than if you are hoping to find it later. And you might even discover that it wasn’t what you were really seeking all along.

The concept of following your joy over seeking it was presented to me by Robert Holden, PH.D who is renowned for his work on the Happiness Project and Success Intelligence.

Check out his website, take the Happiness Test and see how happy you are.

I scored 86, and I know I scored this because I made the choice to listen and answer. Listen and answer, it works. I wasn’t always an 86, but I am now. 🙂

“If you scored 84 to 100 points: Call to joy Inside each of us is a call to joy. The more you answer this call, the more you discover the truth of who you are, what is important and what your life is for. By following your joy, you experience the fullness of your being and you discover a depth of creativity and talent that inspires the world. People who follow their joy are the renaissance workers who evolve the consciousness of humanity. It’s time to answer the call! ” ~ Robert Holden, PH.D

My BFF Bea is with me now. She answered the call. Before she chose to answer she was in a much different state. She had a very hard decision to make but realized something else inside her was calling her. Her happiness was more important. Once she made the decision to answer everything fell into place. I can’t tell you how nice it is to see her smile again.

Stay tuned in for our journey. It’s magic!

With love, light and faerie dust, ✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫

Dear Joy

Affirmation: Dear Joy, I am all yours! What would you like to do with my life today?

What a great affirmation! You can really feel it when you say it to. That one came from the You Can Heal Your Life conference with Louise Hay, Cheryl Richardson, Marianne Williamson, Carolyn Myss, and Robert Holden. Attending that conference was a magical experience for me. Truly!

When you have been doing the work as long as I have attending a conference like You Can Heal Your Life isn’t always about learning something new. But for me, it is always in one way or another transformational. In fact, it’s more about realizing that now is the time. It’s about taking the responsibility that the collective consciousness affects everything. When you hear it like that, you realize it’s not just about you. It not about you, me or ‘I’… It’s about making the commitment to coming into a state of joy not just for your ‘self’ but for everyone and everything.

Words can’t really describe what I gained from it, where it brought me or what it stirred. But I can tell you it did push me a little deeper into where I needed to be, and I am in a very real state of joy. There isn’t much going on around me right now, someone else might even suggest its boring if you look on the outside, but the way I feel inside is honestly so amazing.

Think of what that affirmation is saying. You are speaking to JOY, the joy within you, and you are telling it you surrender to it. You’re saying I’m free today for you JOY, just for you. If you think of how you feel when someone you want to spend time with says that to you, imagine how your joy must feel when you tell yourself that.

What I’ve notice about this state of being is that the more I live it the more my life becomes it. Honestly I’m a true product of this work. I dare you to do it, you might like it. Don’t try.. In the words of the wise sage Yoda, “You must unlearn what you have learned….Try not. Do or do not. There is no try.” So do it!

Remember… when you are saying your affirmations you are creating the future. So even if they don’t feel or look to be true for what’s around you right now, be aware of what you say. Your words have so much power!

I’m in LA right now, awaiting the arrival of my very good friend, BFF, Bea Kessler. We are about to go on a very magical and amazing journey so…. Stay Tuned in to Your Joy!

May you see all the blessings around you! 2012 – Year of the Water Dragon – Believe in your most impossible dreams!

With love, light and faerie dust, ✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫

Finding Vibrational Harmony

Faerie Ring by Living Fae. Photo taken at Sunset Campout by Ursula Young.

Affirmation: No matter where I’m going, what I’m doing, I’m focusing on things that make me feel good.

The image above is definitely something that makes me feel good. Experiencing it is  magical, and something I hold very dear to my heart. I designed that with Anne Elizabeth for Living Fae. We put it up at the Sunset Campout every year put on by the Pacific Sound crew from San Francisco; an event that makes me smile just thinking about it.

I was inspired today by a YouTube video of Abraham Hicks talking about setting your vibrational tone and the importance of finding your vibrational harmony with source. Our vibration is key to creating the life we desire, it is key to our happiness. And when our vibration is aligned with source what we focus on manifests. That’s why it is so key to focus your attention on that which you desire and to be in a state of happiness simultaneously.

When we focus on something it shows up more because we make ourselves more aware of it. Just to give you an example listen to this video and try the exercise with Anthony Robbins.

Each of us is ultimately responsible for our own happiness. We make the choice. We can try and attribute it to outside circumstances or how other people are making us feel, but remember, we are the creators of our lives. We set the vibrational tone. So get in the most amazing, blissful, happy, peaceful, loving vibration you can imagine, and do whatever it takes to get there, because I believe its the most important thing worth living for. Remember the work you do on the inside reflects all around you.

And if something throws you off. It’s OK. It happens. Just give yourself a hug and get back to where you know you need to be.

Now, I’m off to Las Vegas tomorrow. It’s a very spontaneous adventure! I got an email yesterday about the You Can Heal Your Life Conference with Louise Hay in Las Vegas this Saturday, January 21st and decided to buy my ticket. If you’ve been reading my blog since the beginning you’ll remember I mentioned it was the book You Can Create  An Exceptional Life by Louise Hay and Cheryl Richardson that inspired me to start the blog. When I saw it I knew I needed to go, and certainly made me feel good.

Stay tuned!

With love, light and faerie dust, ✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫

Remembering to Relax and Breathe

Affirmation: I relax and breathe into life. The more I relax into it, the less resistance I encounter, and the more things open up. I trust life with every breath I take.

Today’s affirmation was inspired by my yoga instructor. In class today she talked a lot about being conscious and aware about where your body was in each pose before you pushed yourself any farther. Then once you had listened and become aware of what your body was telling you, to breathe and relax into it.

She gave a great example of how she discovered how it works too. In her massage practice she had a client who was always asking her to push harder, and she would push and push. He would say he couldn’t feel anything and ask her to push harder. What was happening is that his body would tense up and resist the pressure, so when she would push he wouldn’t feel anything. It just became a battle of wills. One day she decided to take a different approach. She started with gentle pressure, and then when he said to press harder, she just told him to hold on and relax. Once he relaxed her elbow slowly went deeper and deeper. The next day he even called her to let her know he was sore for the first time.

I liked her example because as much as I understand how important it is to breathe and relax in my yoga practice it helped me by bringing more awareness to how it works.

I find that you can take this same approach with life. Whether it’s your body, another person or just something you are experiencing, it’s still working with energy.  The more we relax and breathe into life, the more we trust. When we have trust we allow life to open up in miraculous ways.

So… be chill, relax and breathe.  That’s when life’s miracles happen.

Conscious Visualization

Affirmation: I know the power of conscious visualization. I visualize my true hearts desires and put complete trust in life to manifest them.

I do know the power in conscious visualization. There are so many things and moments in my life that I have seen manifest through my visualization exercises. The key to it is that while you are visualizing you also have to balance it out with the power of feeling.

When you visualize draw as clear picture of it as you can, and while you are doing that be sure to feel yourself in a state of happiness and gratitude. Then you have to let it go and put complete trust in life that it will come. Basically, go about your day focusing on what’s before you. Be present. Then let life do the rest.

Take some time each day visualizing yourself living a healthy, happy, prosperous and meaningful life. If you have something show up which pulls you away from this feeling, don’t give it your energy.  Instead see only what it is you desire.

In those moments, when you go about your day, and you happen to notice what you’ve been visualizing has manifested, be sure to acknowledge it and say Thank You.  That will help you continue to see the magic, give it more power, and learn to master it.

A Higher Place of Being

Affirmation: I follow my dreams by allowing my heart to light the way. I dissolve thoughts, feelings and energies that block me and  I open myself up to a higher place of being.

I wrote this post and then somehow lost what I wrote before I could post it. Funny how the words I had written seem to have dissolved and now I’m left with writing some new ones down. I look at it as an opportunity to express myself from a higher place.

When we can let go of unforgiving thoughts, feelings and energies we not only open ourselves up to a different way to being, but we magically open up and light paths which we could not see before. The best way I can describe this is through my actual dreams.

When I’m dreaming, if I become lucid and know I’m dreaming, I’m able to recognize energies in my dream which I am fearful of. When this happens what I do is send that energy love, and sometimes I laugh with it. When that happens the energy magically transforms. It either disappears or becomes something loving and beautiful. The darkness before me in the dream lightens up and I see the most magical amazing things.

Now we can take this same dream work and incorporate it into our lives. When you notice yourself feeling energies that hold you back from showing love, stop for a moment and send it love, laughing is good to do to. When you do that a whole new way opens itself up to you, and that’s when your dreams can really manifest into more than you ever thought you could dream of.
