Abundance

Abundance

When you hear the word abundance, most people think of financial wealth and prosperity.  That’s typical as our world, as we know it to be, values almost everything with a “price point”. 

Which makes sense … kind of.

But because our life is so multi-dimensional, wouldn’t we desire to experience abundance in other areas as well?  Because if we only focus on money, we lose out – on a lot. I mean, if you’re abundant in money but your relationships lack, you are not experiencing abundance now are you?  You are losing in love and connection, what does money matter in that situation anyway? 

And what about experiencing an abundance of time?  What does that look like?  With two teenager daughters I keep thinking I have an abundance of time so there’s a lot of breathing happening in order to make that so.  So maybe I have an abundance of breath. 

Either way … I’m abundant.

If we are product of our thoughts, which I like to believe that we are, then we always have more than enough.  And if you say you’re tired, or overwhelmed, or busy, then you will be. But if you say instead, “I’m abundant in my life right now!” – that one phrase can shift everything.  And I mean it.

The over arching thought in global consciousness has been one of lack.  We’re told by the media that we need something – anything!  But the truth is, we have everything we need in present moment.  We may desire more, we may visualize more in our lives, but in our present moment, we have every single thing we need to create the life we love and nourish the soul’s callings.

When we forget that, we grasp, we grip, we yearn for more.  We wish things were different.  We pray for something to “come to us” when all this does is create more lack within our lives. 

When we re-member that our lives are abundant, we can give in infinite generosity.  We can love without fear.  We can create a life we cannot even really dream up, because we know that there is something more than the mind can conceive. 

In the field of abundance, we recognize that we do not know it all. We do not control anything.  We give it up to spirit.  And that, living in abundance, is what creates miracles.    

Breakthrough

Breakthrough

Because when something breaks apart, or down it’s really breaking through to something else.  Something you didn’t notice before.  Something you couldn’t have noticed without whatever transpired … no matter how uncomfortable it was.  And even in that breakthrough, you may experience MORE breakthroughs. Like how you reacted once you became the observer and noticed the real you … 

I Am

I Am

Read this original musing in my book Oms from the Mat

We create that which we desire and believe we deserve for ourselves in this lifetime. We are creative beings and the two most powerful words in the English language are “I am.” Saying “I am” is like summoning all the “powers who be” to us. They are just waiting to hear what it is we think we are so they can deliver.

Patience

Patience

Read this original musing in my book Oms from the Heart

We sit and we wait;  we wait for the breath of the Divine to guide us into our truth, and our purpose and we have patience as we observe our life and all the amazingness that happens as we move through each connection, each struggle, each embrace and each disappointment.  We have patience and when it’s right and it’s time .. we know.  That’s all … we just know.

FREEDOM

FREEDOM

I stare at the Moon often; actually have quite a love affair with Her these days.  And just this past weekend, I watched Her rise over Yosemite’s majestic landscape. I witnessed the ground vibrating beneath my feet while I was there.  Felt the cleansing water at Mirror Lake go right through to my soul.  In one day I was blessed to have hundreds of butterflies, several dragonflies, multiple Bluejays, and a huge brown bear cross my path.  I have watched the Sun set and Moon rise at the same time multiple times in my life.   In all these instances I was free.  Free in my mind, my heart, and my soul.  

13 Moon Sacred Circle: New Moon Cancer

13 Moon Sacred Circle: New Moon Cancer

Cancer is emotional underneath that hard shell.  Vulnerable and so very sweet and loveable, once you get past the tough outer coating of protection; and so are you.  Our heart is meant to love, to connect, to experience infinite, sensual, emotional love.  And we block it for so many reasons. 

But today, with this New Moon, we lay down our sword in surrender, and say yes to love, abundance, and deep emotionally healing.  

Kama

Kama

This word is so classic and traditional, isn’t it?  Kama:  desire, longing, passion, pleasure of the senses.  And, in contemporary literature, Kama often refers to sexual desire and longing however, the concept more broadly refers to any desire, wish, passion, longing, pleasure of the senses, simple enjoyment of life, affection, or love, with or without sexual connotations.

Full Moon Sagittarius

Full Moon Sagittarius

So you can wake up to the JOY that you are meant to experience in this life.  So you can claim NEW teachings that leave you feeling much more free and light than the old ones that may have left you confused, stuck or shackled. You’re being offered an opportunity to truly see things from a multi-dimensional reality … with your intuition.  And no, there is not an app for that.  (But there may be an oil!) 

Artha

Artha

And right now, the world needs as many people as possible to turn off their “notifications” and listen to the notification of the heart.  The Universe needs as many people as possible to trust that things will work out if they stop struggling and trying to make things “work”.  The Goddess is asking that we all listen to the beat of our hearts and trust that we can take that next step … that even if we can’t see what’s next, as long as we are living in truth, integrity and love … freedom will follow. 

Initiation

Initiation

Trust that what is happening now is for the highest evolution of your soul.  And things may be working themselves out in a way that is new … but that’s because if life happened in the same way every time, and we expected a different outcome that would be insanity right? 

Commitment

Commitment

And finally … keep in mind that because Mercury and Neptune are both pointing their “fingers” at Jupiter … you have the opportunity to create something very mystical and grounding for yourself and the collective.  Something that expands beyond your own human understanding … You just have to trust it and believe that in the breath it will manifest. 

Prosperity

Prosperity

Prosperity is about being in a state of thriving … of flourishing … of abundance.  And I think about all the areas of our life we can potentially feel prosperous. 

Love – relationships – joy – spiritual connection – health – career – comfort…

Power

Power

Where are you having a challenging time recognizing and utilizing your power in a way that is directly connected to Divine Source and connection?  That is the real question … it’s never ever about the other person or situation ... it’s all you.

 

Breakthrough

Breakthrough

This is such a powerful word isn’t it? I personally do not believe in the word “breakdown” … or “break up” … or “”break apart.” 

Breakthrough …

Because when something breaks apart, or down it’s really breaking through to something else.  Something you didn’t notice before.  Something you couldn’t have noticed without whatever transpired … no matter how uncomfortable it was.

Clarity

Clarity

So interesting … this word clarity.  Clarity of body, clarity of mind, clarity of speech, clarity of actions, clarity of heart.  Which comes first?  Well, I think it depends. 

If we look at the density of our bodies, I might be inclined to say the body first.  Then maybe the mind because, well, the energy in the mind is so fast paced and erratic. And then, the heart, because it’s infinite energy that holds, well everything.

Re-member

Re-member

The world is spinning so much faster these days isn’t it?  It’s so easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of possibility, drama, experience, and energy of everyone else.  That’s why a pause is necessary …. And often.

I sat with my teacher the other day and she said, “The path of a yogi is to remember to keep her prana in close.”  Easier said than done sometimes, but doable nonetheless.

Such powerful, perfect, and potent wisdom.

Reflect

Reflect

Our life, the current situation(s) we find ourselves in, have been a result of our past choices.  That’s truth.  It fills my heart with compassion with I hear, “How did I get here? Why is this happening to me?” Or worse when the gaze is turned outward, “Because of this person, that situation, this energy … that’s why this is happening. Itcan’t possibly be because of me.”

Here’s the truth:  Everything you are experiencing right now is a product of your past thoughts.  And if you sit with that reality long enough, if you reflect deep enough … you will surrender to it.

Pause

Pause

I don’t know about you but I feel like I’m a pretty conscious person.  I feel mostly “awake”.  I feel like I can see things from a higher perspective, and recognize the Oneness in it all.  And I also feel like there are days when I’m on a rollercoaster ride that is going too fast for my liking.  And life is just whizzing by so quickly that there’s just not time to process it.  No time to feel it … to inquire … to check in with our Highest Source for clarity. 

This is when we pause.

Embody Truth

Embody Truth

We’ve all been there; a little out of integrity here, or there.  And for whatever reason, we justify it. And always, and I mean always, the justification is based on some illusion we’ve created that makes no sense to our soul, but we believe it anyway.  We try and make something up that will make our ego feel better. 

But somewhere in our body, at some point in our life, we’ve ignored the message.

Deep Vulnerability

Deep Vulnerability

Venus Retrograde is, in my humble opinion, one of the most powerful times to regroup, realign and dive deeper into the heart than we think is possible. She’s all about relationships, intimate relationships; the ones we hold most dear – the ones that offer so much love, joy, angst, and reflection.  She bears all so we can feel all.

And while she’s in retrograde we’ve experienced a Full Moon Virgo, a conjunction of the Sun, Mercury and Chiron with a drive by of Neptune, all in Pisces. Oh and Saturn just happens to be resting in Sagittarius squaring that conjunction with the Moon. Oh and, you know … Uranus is opposite Jupiter .. shaking things up just a bit.
