True Desires

Affirmation: I know my true heart’s desires.  I AM clear, open and ready for their magic.

Later this week I’m heading to an annual music and art festival in Southern California called Lightning In A Bottle. This will be my second year attending the festival. I was so inspired by the festival last year that I decided I wanted to help build altars at the Temple of Consciousness this year. The Temple of Consciousness is an area of the festival where they have workshops, speakers, yoga, and meditations. They also have beautiful altars all throughout the temple.

My desire to help led me to not just assist with building the altars but to be given the opportunity to have Living Fae build our own altar in the Temple. So later this week Living Fae (Melanie Dawn & Anne Elizabeth) will be heading there to build an altar. Not only are we excited to have this opportunity to share what the divine inspires us to create but we are also very excited to be working along with Brent “Shrine” Spears who is well known for his amazing temples at Burning Man, Lightning In A Bottle, and Coachella. He is also responsible for the design of the interior of the House of Blues chain.

Another highlight of the event for me is having an altar we’ve built be somewhere where Shaman Durek is speaking. Some of you may recall me blogging about Shaman Durek in my Choose Life! post. Shaman Durek is speaking at 10:30am – 11:30am  on Sunday, May 27th ~ Expanding Your Vessel. When I started building altars at public events it was in collaboration with an event Durek was speaking at so its very exciting for me to be in the same space again with him. It’s like we’ve come full circle.

Building altars is most certainly one of my true hearts desires. I love what it invokes in and evokes from me. I love what channels through me. I love how it comes together in the most magical way. I love the stories they tell. But most of all I love what I’ve seen them bring about for others. It’s always music to my heart when I see someone meditating in front of the altar.

Building an altar is a great way to discover your true desires. However, I know that isn’t for everyone.  If you want to tap in and be clear on what your true heart’s desires are then I recommend looking at images, writing a story and making a creative visualization board.

Something about the magic in the above photo spoke to my heart. Looking at it brings a huge smile to my face. It brings out a sense of awe, beauty and wonderment.  And it reminds me of faeries which I love.

What are you true heart’s desires? Do you have a clear vision on them? Do you know you deserve them? Are you ready to receive them?

Start by looking at images and seeing what kind of emotion that image evokes.  You can go through magazines, your own photos, or check out some great places online like Pinterest. Choose the ones that resonate with you on a deep level. Then once you can see how that image has opened your heart let it speak to you. It’s sure to give you an indication of what it is you desire more of. Sometimes it may bring out something you might desire less of. In this exercise focus only on the ones you desire most.

The next step is to collect a series of images and let them tell a story. Get out scrapbook, and tell your story. Begin to journal your story along with the images.  You’re the main character. Write it in the affirmative and present tense as though it were happening now.  Feel excitement, joy, love, tenderness, peace and the beauty of your emotions as you experience the magic of your desires.

One thing I’ve learned through No Plan To Happiness is not just how important it is to imagine and believe in all your dreams and wishes. But mostly importantly you must let go of how you think they should happen and allow life to guide you to them.

Cleansing

photo from withstyle.me

Affirmation: I AM healthy, vibrant and full of energy.

I noticed internally my body hadn’t been feeling very good so I thought it might be time to do a cleanse. May is a great time for cleansing too. It’s good to do a cleanse at least once year and it’s been more than a year since I’ve done one, so I’m definitely due.

The cleanse I do is a liver cleanse that my yoga instructor taught me a while back. I’ve given this cleanse to many of friends as well. I done it both with them and on my own. It’s always great to do it with someone if you can but its just as easy to do it on your own too.

Here are the instructions for the cleanse:

Every morning drink 1 glass of water with 1/2 squeezed lemon.

Eat ONLY fresh fruit and raw vegetables. You can “lightly” steam some vegetables as well. (They should still be crunchy).

Drink 8 glasses of water a day. You can also have coconut water and fresh squeezed juice. I like to make my own juices.

On your veggies you can have olive oil and sea salt.

Wash your skin only in sea salt (no soaps). For moisturizer you can use almond oil if you need it. I sometimes mix them together.

Do an enema every day. You can do a coffee enema, chamomile tea enema or lemon and water (use 3 squeezed lemons). You can get an enema kit at any Walgreens.

Do this for 7 days.

On the last day stop eating at 2pm. Make a mixture of epson salt (the kind that is a laxative) and water in a jar. You can add lemon or an emergen-C to help with the taste.

At 6pm drink 1/4 of the jar.

At 8pm drink 1/4 of the jar.

At 9pm mix 3/4 cup of olive oil and 1 fresh squeezed grapefruit and drink it.

Go to bed.

At 6am drink 1/4 of the epson salt jar mix.

At 8am drink the last 1/4.

Some time will pass and you’ll likely start not to feel very good. This is OK. You are doing the final flush of your system. Make sure you are near a bathroom. 🙂

What should come out is a lot of little cholesterol deposits. This is good as it serves as a preventative for gallstones.

That’s it!

There are many different cleanses out there but this is the one that I like to do. Whether its this cleanse or another one I encourage you to do a cleanse. You will feel great!

I hear so many people make excuses when it comes to cleansing. Everything from I couldn’t go without eating meat, my schedule won’t allow for it,  to my body will go into shock, etc. You can a cleanse anytime you decide you can do it. That’s all it takes.

If someone came along and said to you that you would get a million dollars at the end of the week if you did the cleanse would you be able to do it? Somehow I think so. So think of it that way, its only a week of your life and you might not end up with a million dollars but you will feel like a million dollars. Who knows if you’ve got manifesting mastered you might end up with a million dollars too. 😉

Natural Beauty

Affirmation: I live in harmony with nature, acknowlege its beauty and respect its resources. I AM one with Mother Earth.

Did everyone have a nice supermoon the other night? I had the priveledge of seeing it over the ocean. It was big and lavendar. It was magical and breathtaking.

I’m sitting here in my back patio at my home in Redondo Beach enjoying the beauty and magic of the nature which surrounds me. It’s a beautiful sunny day. There is a slight breeze with a hint of the scent of the ocean. There are butterflies and hummingbirds fluttering around the red and purple flowers. It’s peaceful and serene. When I sit outside like this, breathing and taking everything in, I harmonically connect with everything around me. I tap into my spirit on a deep and introspective level. I feel expansive and I see how we are all interconnected.  I see how we are one, and not just you and me. Everything. The air, the water, the earth and all its creatures. And what I feel commands a great respect.

One of the most important causes today is our environment and nuturing a love and friendship with the earth, the air and water. The earth is our life force and continuing a downward spiral to pollute does not serve us. The ground we walk upon is not seperate from us. We are connected to it. We are one with it. Just as your fingers, toes, arms, eyes or nose are a part of your body, we are a part of the earth. Collectively we are Mother Earth.

Spend some time outside and allow yourself to connect with the nature that’s around you. Feel it. It’s a blessing.
