Love Your Life ~ Altar for Sarah Pugh | Sunset Season Opener

Love Your Life ~ Altar for Sarah Pugh | Sunset Season Opener

Affirmation: Love Life! I am aware of the miracles happening around me. I love my life. I AM LOVE.

Last weekend a part of my life was dedicated to honoring the memory of some very special people, Sarah Pugh and DJ/Music Producer Scott Hardkiss, amongst the presence of my extended and soul family at the 2013 Sunset Season Opener. The theme of the weekend LOVE YOUR LIFE!

I met Sarah Pugh a little over 12 years ago through the San Francisco Sunset Party Collective. I can’t express to you how infectious her smile and spirit were. She’s always been such a great inspiration to me. I have many cherished moments with this beautiful soul and they will certainly continue to live on because those moments will serve as divine inspiration to the gifts I continue to share. Most of them involve either dancing behind DJ Sean Murray (Pasean) or moments with the Living Fae Faerie Temple at the Sunset Campout, which typically involved Sarah showing up to help me decorate it at just the perfect moment. It was usually right around the time I was tangled up in the curtains somewhat frustrated. There she would appear, just like a faerie, to calm me down and get things straightened up.

Scott Hardkiss, I was lucky enough to have a brief encounter with back in the mid 90s where I did a short interview with him on a rave docu-film project I was working on called XTV. I’ve been dancing to his tracks for many years but there is one that stands out in my mind. The track that served as a great inspiration to me, my spiritual path, my life journey, is God Within Raincry (Spiritual Thirst). To this day, its still one of my favorite tracks of all time!

The weekened and moments like these always give you perspective on life. They help to remind us what is important, how precious life is, and how much we must love our lives.  I am so very thankful and grateful for all people in my life. Thank you Sarah, thank you Scott. Thank you Sunset! Everyone I encounter is truly a blessing.  So much love to you all!

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.

Finding Vibrational Harmony

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!

Being Aware of The Law of Attraction

Altar by Living Fae. Flowers by Intrinsic. Photo taken at Sunset Campout 2011.

Affirmation: I am aware of my exceptional life. No matter where I am, I see and feel it in all its perfection. I am in love with my amazing life.

If you read yesterday’s post you would have saw that I was going to post the results of Happy Friday later in the day. Well…. later in the day rolled into today. 🙂

What I found was that whenever I said Happy Friday to someone it was returned with a huge smile. Whether is was the lady standing solemly at the bus stop who said, “Hey Baby!” back to me, or the homeless man digging through the garbage who told me to “Have a great weekend!” It always came back with a big smile. A smile I didn’t see before I said it. And seeing them smile really made my heart feel all warm and fuzzy. Then this morning my yoga instructor greated us with, “Happy Saturday!” Coincidence? As far as I’m concerned there is no such thing as a coincidence. I believe its a lesson in Law of Attraction. What we put out there comes back, and the universe likes to show us in a variety of different ways. We just need to be aware in the present moment.

If you know about “The Secret” you know about The Law of Attraction. I knew about the Law of Attraction long before The Secret though. It was something I learned through my spiritual studies over 20 years ago. What I can tell you is The Law of Attraction is a universal law and it does work. So be sure to stay conscious of your thoughts and feelings. Take notice of what you are thinking when you are feeling certain feelings and vice versa, because the universe doesn’t place judgement, it just responds according to the combined energy and the power behind that energy.

What do you want to attract in your life?

Remember you have an amazing life. Start with the awareness of recognizing you have it and the rest is just about simmering the ingrediants to perfection.

With love, light and faerie dust!
