A Love Story

Affirmation: I AM Love.

I’ve been doing a lot of traveling around Southern California with my mom the past couple weeks. We’ve been in Palm Springs, San Diego, Huntington Beach, Anaheim and now Redondo Beach. Along my journey I learned about Anita Moorjani. It’s her story that inspired this affirmation.

While I was in San Diego I read an article where Wayne Dyer interviews Anita. The article peaked my interest because I had watched a Wayne Dyer PBS special, not too long before, where he brings Anita up on stage. Who is Anita Moorjani? She’s the author of Dying to Be Me, a true life story about Anita’s journey with Cancer to miraculous healing through a near death experience. Anita had lymphoma which had spread from the base of her skull down to her abdomen. She had tumors the size of lemons all through her body. The story goes that she was brought into the hospital in a coma and her family was told she would be dead by the morning. While this was all happening, Anita was going through what she refers to as a very conscious experience where she was seeing and hearing everything that was happening in the hospital and at the same time was learning about the power of divine unconditional love. Anita says it was her own personal fears that had caused much of her disease and pain. Through her new understanding of the power of unconditional love that comes from Source she was able to heal herself. When Anita came out of her coma the next day, to the surprise of all her doctors, she came out cancer free. Her message to us, “I AM LOVE.” Love heals. You are love. I am love. We are all LOVE. Let love heal you.

I encourage you to think about this affirmation and what it means. I also encourage you to say it as often as you can, especially when you are looking in the mirror, and then I encourage you to see how your life transforms as you continue to use this affirmation.

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

Transform Your Life

Affirmation: I AM the cure! I transform my life with my empowered thoughts and beliefs.  

Spread the word! There is an empowering film designed to help you live a happy, healthy productive life. I encourage you to watch The Cure Is U! Click on this link to see what it’s all about.

I’ve learned through dedicated practice how much our thoughts and beliefs affect our lives.  When I chose to change what I was thinking and focus on empowering my thoughts with focused intension I watched things appear and my life transform before my very eyes. I’ve also seen how a belief can create a condition that we have the power to change by beginning to work on changing our thoughts. If you can access where you first chose that belief and identify your patterns you can learn to dissolve the part of yourself that first attracted your condition.

Over the past few months, since I’ve been writing No Plan To Happiness, I’ve watched my life transform. I started with “Entering the Unknown”.  At first I was just placing my foot in to test the water. Now I’ve learned to completely embrace the unknown. The more I continue to embrace it combined with doing the meditative work and affirmations the more I have watched myself be guided to some truly inspiring experiences.

Check out The Cure Is U now! It’s important! Transform your life.

Spirit Dancer

The art of Lorra Lee Rose Photo by Jon Wilhelmsen

Affirmation: Through creative expression I share my true self. I allow my light to shine with the elegance and simplicity of a spirit dancer.

Today’s affirmation came with the help of The Faeries Oracle by Brian Froud and Jessica Macbeth. I couldn’t have turned over a better card from the deck. Before I pulled I had set the intention to use images from The art of Lorra Lee Rose for today’s post and the Spirit Dancer card is so fitting for her art.

The art of Lorra Lee Rose

I saw the art of Lorra Lee Rose at the La Quinta Art Festival the other day and was so inspired by it. I was really in awe when I walked around her booth. Not only did I think it was some of the most beautiful art I’ve seen but I found it touched me deeply on a spiritual level as well. The part that came bursting through was truly my Spirit Dancer.  The faerie in me that loves creative expression and then sharing it with others to see what it stirs in them.

The art of Lorra Lee Rose

Is there a project in the creative arts you’ve been working on or have wanted to do? Seize the day. Carpe Diem. Explore, experiment and express. Unleash your best fantasies and make them come to life. There are so many ways you can express that inner part of yourself waiting to come out. Write, draw, paint, sculpt, collage, dance. Make a creative visualization board ~ cut out images, phrases, and affirmations and paste them on a board.  Take that beautiful light that’s been growing inside you, shine it and share it with the world.

For those of you who took on the 21 day Meditation Challenge, today is day 21! Thank you for taking on the challenge with me.

Steady Progress

Cathedral Rock, Sedona, AZ

 Affirmation: I acknowledge my progress on this life journey to align all my thoughts and feelings with love, peace and harmony. I practise the law of attraction and know I’m on the right path.

We are three days into the Chopra Center’s 21 Day Meditation Challenge, how are you feeling? I just finished today’s guided meditation and I’m certainly filled with a sense of peace and well-being. It’s good to acknowledge and recognize our progress, so take a moment today to Thank Yourself for the work you are doing. The more we can acknowledge where we’ve come the more we are encouraged and allow ourselves to continue.

Thanks so much to everyone who has joined The Meditation Challenge with me. It feels good to know I’m sharing the experience with you. And I’d also like to take this moment to thank everyone who has been reading and following my blog. I feel so much love and gratitude for you all. You are all such a blessing in my life.

My BFF Bea has left on a jetplane to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico today. She started a new blog called Bea, Anywhere that gives lots of great insights and info into the different places she travelled to so check it out! We traveled from the “happiest place on earth” Disneyland – to sin city Las Vegas – to the magnificent Grand Canyon Skywalk – to alien encounters at Area 51 – to mystical Sedona – to the mysterious ghost town Jerome – to being “surprised” on the way to Palm Springs [there is city named Surprise in Arizona] – to the magic and illusion of the Magic Castle in Hollywood – all which led us right back to the place we left our hearts, the city of summer love San Francisco.

We had an amazing journey together. It was full of magic and adventure no matter where we were.  During our downtime we watched copious video clips of two adorable rising stars, my new favorite fairies Princess Sophia Grace and Princess Rosie.

Thank you again. I will see you in meditation bliss! Namaste.

A Meditation Challenge

Affirmation: Through the power of meditation I tranform my life and discover the untapped potential that rests within me. I live the life of my dreams.

The Chopra Center is having a 21 Day Meditation Challenge. Care to join me and the many others who have committed themselves to taking on the challenge?

It’s said that it takes 21 days to get yourself into a habit or daily ritual. What do you think your life could look like, would look like if you committed yourself to 21 consistent days of meditation?

I’ve practised various forms of meditation for many years now. I’m not always consistent, but I do know that when I dedicate myself and have a daily ritual my life shifts and changes in miraculous ways. It always goes in the direction that makes me happiest too. Why wouldn’t I just do it all the time then? Good question. Let’s just say I let myself get in the way sometimes. You know the part that likes to distract or create reasons for not doing it.

I’m dedicated to continuing to make my life a powerful journey of following my joy, so I’m taking on the Chopra Challenge. Let’s do it together and see where we end up 21 days from now.

It’s easy! All you have to do is register and give yourself a bit of time to meditate every day for 21 days. We can all make the time. The Chopra Center is even going to provide us with free guided meditations.  You can Register Here.

The Challenge starts February 2oth.

See you in bliss! Namaste.

Hello Love, it’s me!

Affirmation: Hello Love, it’s me. What is the most loving thing I can do for myself right now? 

Happy Valentines Day from sunny Palm Springs, California! May the light of your being be so full of love today. Whether you are in a relationship or on your own let love flow through you. Be open and receptive. You are loved!

Dr. Wayne Dyer says, “Love is the very essence of your being. Your objective is to ask love within you to make its presence known, to have an awareness of being so full of love that this is what you have to give away. By doing just that, you’ll attract more of what you’re giving away.”

Louise Hay says, “The more love we allow to flow out from us, the more there is within us and the more we receive. It is endless and timeless. Love for ourselves is the power that heals us. Practice as much as you can.”

Enjoy this day where we celebrate love. Be loving to yourself, your partner, your family, your friends and strangers. Make this day of love a day where everyone you encounter feels your love.

The Vortex

Bell Rock ~ Sedona, AZ

Affirmation: I am aligned, in harmony and whole. I am in the vortex. The vortex and I are one.

Sedona, Arizona, is a mecca of vortexes, and it’s the next place our journey led us. What a beautiful, breathtaking and magical place. I’m so happy I’ve been able to experience it.

We drove in through Flagstaff, AZ. Having never been to Arizona before, I didn’t realize that we would drive through a huge forest to get here. I guess I had it in my head that Arizona was just desert. At Flagstaff you are at 7000 ft and then you drive down a windy two lane highway about 28 miles to Sedona. At first it seemed like the forest went on forever, so I couldn’t figure out when the giant red rocks Sedona is know for would appear. When they did, it was so breathtaking my eyes welled up with tears. I was overcome with its beauty and I could feel the energy and love Mother Earth has.

Since we’ve been here I’ve made a point to hike to each of the vortexes and do a meditation to engage myself further with the energy here. It’s been magical. I could actually feel the energy. To me it feels like flowing waves and I feel lighter, like I’m floating. Everyone experiences it differently though.

What is a Sedona vortex? The vortexes are sites where there is a spiral flow of spiritual energy existing on multiple dimensions. It is believed that you can tap deeper into your inner self through prayer and meditation when you access the vortex energy.

Even if you come here and don’t have the heightened sensitivity to actually feel the energy, you can’t help but notice it in the people, the environment and just the general sense of peace that comes over you from being here.

Abraham Hicks speaks of the vortex. Abraham tells us that the vortex is, “where the Law of Attraction assembles all cooperative relationships.” To hear more about what Abraham has to say about the vortex check out this video on You Tube.

Experiencing the energy of the vortex here has definitely had a powerful effect on me. I do believe, however, that we all have the capability to tap into the energy of the vortex no matter where we are as long as we know we are one with the energy of the vortex.

Here’s a simple meditation you can do to unite with its energy. If you can do this outside in nature, I highly recommend it.

Sit quietly with your eyes closed. Take three deep breaths and allow your body to relax. Feel the energy of whatever you are sitting on beneath you. Begin to see it as energy rather than the physical object it once was. Now begin to see yourself, your body, as a form of energy. Feel how you become one with the energy of the ground beneath you. In front of you see a mass of spiraling energy. Call that energy towards you and feel yourself enter the center. See your energy uniting with the spiraling energy. You are now the energy of the vortex. Feel the love that energy has for itself and for you. It’s powerful, it’s unconditional. Express your gratitude to the energy for all that it is, all that you are. If you’d like say a prayer, mantra, affirmation or ask it for something you’d like to bring in or dissolve from your life. Now sit with the energy so you can share yourself with it, like you would if you were spending time with a loved one. Begin to bring yourself back. Feel the ground beneath you. Feel the physical manifestation that is you. When you are ready open your eyes.

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

Believe In Your Dreams

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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, ✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫
