Change in Direction

from apartmenttherapy.com

Affirmation: My new phase in life has transformed into a magical garden. I follow my path to a beautiful bright future.

What’s new in your life? Embrace it! Love it!

Mine certainly has landed in a place where my life took on a whole new direction. Embracing a big change like this can sometimes prove to bring out feelings of uncertainty because everything is so new. It can certainly throw you out of your comfort zone.

It’s good to get thrown out of your comfort zone, and uncomfortable as it might be, it helps you to learn to establish a whole new level of comfort. One that you might have thought you could never possibly have. When things are new and uncertain it brings out a whole new world of possibilities for you. And those new possibilities somehow actually begin to seem possible. Imagine that!

So change direction. Do something different. Make one small step towards something new. You are protected now and in your future. Your future is bright!  All the changes you experience are being directed by your willingness to trust yourself. The more you open your heart to love everything around you. everything in your life, the more your path will lead you to the place beyond your wildest dreams.

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

True Desires

image from thebeldam.tumblr.com

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.

A Gratitude Blessing

Affirmation: I AM so very grateful for the miracles and blessings bestowed upon me. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

When I began writing No Plan To Happiness I was starting a journey. One that was very much an internal and external exploration.  Externally I journeyed all through California, Nevada and Arizona, and was given the opportunity to spend more quality time with my friends and family. Internally I was brought deeper into my spiritual path and my faith and belief in miracles were put to the test. Life can appear to be challenging when your faith is put to the test but I can’t tell you how thankful I am for it, because it really strengthened my faith and trust in everything I believe in. Everything that I write about.

Anyhow, where I arrived is all very exciting and new, and a dream come true! To give you a little more detail I’ve landed my dream job and I am absolutely in love with my new home. And the way my life has been transforming around that is exactly how I always dreamed it would be. It didn’t come without letting go of the struggle and embracing a big change in my life though, in whatever form it decided to take on. One thing I learned was the more I stayed grounded, clear, happy, and thankful the more the form it took on was something I saw as beautiful and awesome. The affirmations and meditation I did were my key tools. I AM so happy to embark upon this next chapter of my life.

One of the key things you learn through this process is just how important being in a state of gratitude is no matter what is going on around you. There is always something to be thankful for. So be sure to take some time each day and thank your I AM presence for all the miracles and blessings bestowed upon you. Even just the simple things.

Now if you’ll just give me a moment, I would like to bestow a Gratitude Blessing on you. This is something I do every year at the Sunset Campout with my Living Fae faerie sister Anne Elizabeth.

Let’s get grounded….

Take a deep breath in, hold it… 1 – 2 – 3

Breath Out.

Take another deep breath, hold it… 1 – 2 – 3

Breath Out.

Take one more deep breath, hold it… 1 – 2 – 3

Breath Out.

Now fill your heart with the feeling of gratitude. Allow it to open. See a bright green spinning light over it. You should start to feel your heart get warm. If you need to think of someone or something you are enternally grateful for.

Once you are in a state of gratitude read these words outloud.

Thank you! I AM so very grateful for your presence in my life. Thank you for taking the time to read No Plan To Happiness. Thank you for your comments. Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts and everything I learn along the way. Thank you for being YOU! You [I AM] an amazing person. You [I AM] a blessing to this world. A blessing to me. So thank you, thank you, thank you.

”May the sun bring you energy by day,

May the moon softly restore you by night,

May the rain wash away your worries,

May the breeze blow new strength into your being.

May you walk gently through the world

and know its beauty all the days of your life.” [apache blessing]

I AM

image from weheartit.com

image from weheartit.com

Affirmation: I AM that I AM. My wishes are fullfilled.

I’ve been working with Dr. Wayne Dyer’s I AM WISHES FULFILLED mediation. I’ve found it to be both a very powerful meditation and have now seen my very own wishes fulfilled after repeated work with it, so I want to recommend it. This is where today’s affirmation comes from.

I combined my meditation work with listening to his audio book, WISHES FULFILLED: Mastering the Art of Manifesting. You can very easily just do the meditative work with I AM WISHES FULFILLED but I think either listening to the audio book or reading the book is a great compliment because Dr. Dyer provides a really good understanding of “I AM,” which comes from St. Germain’s The I AM Discourses. I read The I AM Discourses quite a few years ago, but Dr. Dyer helped me gain a more clear perspective and understanding of it, which I believe has given me a whole new perspective on the world and how I AM choosing to think and live my life today.

So what does “I AM” mean? I AM is you. I AM is me. It’s very common for us to use the words I am when we are speaking about ourselves. But how “conscious” are we of what we are saying.  I AM is GOD. I AM is your connection to the divine source of creation. In Sanskrit I AM is “So Hum.” When you say I AM you are affirming something about yourself, connecting with the divine, and you are creating your future. So when you say I AM remember to be conscious of the words you use that follow for you are telling divine source what it is you wish to create in your life.

I AM THAT I AM, is the mantra that Dr. Dyer tells you to use in the meditation. “That” refers your intension. What you do is write your intension down and then in meditation “that” takes the place of your set intension. The sounds used in the sound meditation were taken from the Moses Code, and according to Dr. Dyer by combining the sounds with the mantra you are tapping into the most powerful way to manifest your desires.

What I can tell you is from my experience I found what I was working on to manifest very quickly once I started began meditating along with the mantra and sounds. Anyone who is close to me knows just how long I’ve been working on making my recently fulfilled wishes a reality so I’m very honest when I say they manifested more quickly once I began working with the meditation.

Be sure to check them out. And may all your wishes come true. Faith, trust and a little bit of faerie dust!

My Higher Self

Altar by Living Fae

Affirmation: I AM my higher self.

Try saying that outloud at least 1o times. Let it sink in. Absorb the idea that you are… I am my higher self. What does that mean to you?

I picked up Dr. Wayne Dyer’s Wishes Fulfilled: Mastering the Art of Manifesting audio book today. Then I hopped in the car and began to drive back down the LA freeway to the beaches with my mom. I put the first CD in and began to listen to what Wayne had to say. While I listened intently to every word my mom fell asleep. Every so often she would wake up and yell out, “Wayne’s yelling at me!” or “Where am I?” It was pretty amusing at the time. The funniest part was she seemed to wake up and yell those phrases at the most perfect moment. It seemed to align with everything I was hearing him say.

As I continued to drive Dr. Wayne began to discuss the notion of the higher self and how choosing this course, listening to his CD, was really about committing to the idea that you are your higher self now. As he spoke of this I felt myself aligning with everything he was saying, and at the same time I could feel my ego hesitate on the concept.

When I began my study of uniting with my higher self I was always looking at it in a way that it was me, but it was a me I was working at becoming. A me I communicated with, but was somehow not where I was now. Let’s say I saw this me in another life or dimension. I wasn’t there yet. It was a goal or a journey I was taking to get there. But then Dr. Wayne had me take a new look at it. As I said the words outloud in the car, “I AM my higher self,” I began to have a new understanding of who “I AM” was,  who “I AM” is. I AM is me. I AM is you. I AM is my higher self. I AM is your higher self. Our higher self, I AM, is the the divine being, the spark, the light, that exists within us. Once we can grasp that concept we can release the limitations we have set for ourselves because our higher self is not something we become. It is something we are. It’s something we have always been and will always be.

I AM THAT I AM.

If the knowledge of your higher self is a new concept to you. Think of it as this:

Your higher self is the perfection of who you are. The all knowing. The all powerful. The unlimited. The essense of this perfect self living here on Earth and you act in accordance with how your perfect self lives on Earth. You are perfect. That is which you are. Absorb the thought and allow it to resonate within you. See what transpires from that. I AM LOVE. I AM MY HIGHER SELF. MY HIGHER SELF IS LOVE. YOU ARE LOVE.

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