As the world slips into the deeper mysteries that come with Winter this is a time of reaping what you have sewn, preparing for inner journeys, and giving thanks for the bounty of the year. As we stand at the threshold … Continue reading
I find myself filled with so much pain when I see a beautiful person breaking under the pressure of daily life. Walking through life, hunched over, and heavy with thoughts, beliefs and ideas that limit the light burning deep inside. … Continue reading
The air is heavy and thick. A feeling of change writhes through the streets and deep into the heart. All our parts are coming undone. The spots between the fragments are starting to show. Incongruencies are growing too great to ignore. … Continue reading
Every person, every situation, every experience you have is an opportunity to grow. An opportunity to become your big, beautiful, and divinely delicious self. Express your gratitude for these adventures. The people in your life, the ups and downs, all serve to push you into your destiny.
When you come up against something in your life, befriend it, and ask how you can serve it best. Usually stuck points are actually jewels waiting to be discovered. And the good times are just moving side walks getting you to your creative potential faster. It all serves as a way of taking you deeper into your own personal flow.
Express extreme gratitude for the good, the bad, and the things you just don’t understand yet!
My life is perfect. I am filled with such gratitude for everything. I get to experience all the colors of the rainbow on my journey to creative fulfillment.
My head and heart have been filled with so many things. Shadows and glimmers of light, blooming into stories. There is something in the air that hints at change. I see it outwardly… a big move coming, and a chance to see my life from a different vantage point. It is empowering to take a step forward into the unknown, and closer to the life that feels congruent with my spirit.
In some ways I feel like I am finally learning to dance, and yet I am still learning from my own inner monsters… but isn’t that the journey we are all on? For now I see a few things clearly. The moment to moment just makes sense, as long as I don’t think too much about it. “Just be”, That’s what I hear in my heart.
Here is to new life, and new adventures. I am opening myself up to the good things. I am taking time to let myself be with love, and light. To be with my dreams, and my goals. I know there is a lot of magic still to be found.
Now that all these changes are happening I have to honor when I can and cant do things. I need to honor when there is no need to write, and jump at the chance to explore a new idea. It doesn’t always make sense on the outside. But life isn’t about making sense to the outside world… it’s about making sense to yourself.
My prayer is that I can learn to dance, to move and grind with all the things that live inside, and all the things that the Universe is sending my way. The more open, the more humble, and the more grateful I am the more magic I seem to find. I guess that is grace. I affirm grace in this moment, in each moment.
Take a moment to feel the grace inside of you. Take a moment to affirm grace. Be beautiful, and be brace. Most of all spread your love to the world… there is so much need for this right now. It is so easy to forget that!
Sending love to all the Gypsies out there.
The Winter Solstice is the return of the Sun. This is a time to honor the graceful flow of age, and death. And to welcome the light back into our lives. As you release the old… as we did in October, you begin to make space and call in energy for new projects, new life, and good feelings.
Allow yourself time to honor the new light that is coming in. Honor yourself because you are the light of your own life. This is a powerful preparation for the New Year, and will empower the goals and aspirations that you set as we move into the coming year.
A Ceremony for Winter Solstice:
In a darkened room at Midnight gather together a tray with a symbol of light such as a fresh white candle, a token of property like a crystal, or gold coin, and a warm cup of ginger, cinnamon or spiced tea.
Create your sacred space by closing all doors, and windows, and sending any disturbances away. Set your items in the center of the room. When you are ready begin to drift into a meditate state. Breathing deeply. Swaying slowly.
Contemplate on the darkness of your own life. The fertile darkness. The uncomfortable darkness. The friendly darkness. The safe darkness. The confusing darkness. Take in all the feelings that surround the dark.
Push through those feelings. Release them into the night.
Begin to imagine a spark of light tin the center of your mind. A gentle, little spark. Like a star. Let that spark grow, and grow, and grow… until it becomes a ray. Until it becomes like the sun, and you are filled with light.
What does the light mean to you?
Now light the candle, or lantern. Speak to the flam. Rejoice in it. Give it thanks. Ask for it to shine throughout your life.
Take the token of prosperity in your hand, and hold it close to your heart. Muster feelings of gratitude and prosperity. Say a prayer of thanks for all the things that you’ve been given throughout the year. And say goodbye to the things that no longer serve you. Let the good move in. Create energetic space for your blessings.
Be with this feeling for a while. This is a talisman of prosperity. Keep it with you, or in your home.
When you’ve basked in feelings of gratitude and abundance shift your focus to what is next. Sip your tea. Take in its sweet and spicy taste. Let it fill your mouth, your head and your body. Let it move through you. Warming and reminding you of all the wonders that the light holds.
Send feelings of wonder and excitement into the future. This good energy will be waiting for you in the New Year.
Talk out loud to the Universe. Speak all the things you want to bring into your life in the New Year. Speak all the things you want to experience, change and feel. Be as honest, open and sincere as you can. Feel as if these things are already real.
Bask in this feeling.
When you are finished with your tea, and you have taken in all the energy of the light… give one last thank you.
Let the light burn out.
Keep your talisman of luck with you somewhere close… sleep with it under your pillow tonight.
The light is in your life. Honor it.

Stop telling yourself that there is no time for dreaming. I want you to remember that there is always something beautiful to be found, no matter how dark and dismal things may seem. You have to know that dreams can come alive in the dark.
If you have been working toward a goal or dreaming up some huge, crazy thing, then get ready because dreams are about to come true. It is your right to have everything you want. All the things that build you up, that make you feel whole, spiritual and vibrant are meant to be yours.
Do not deny yourself of your dreams!
Happiness is not somewhere in the distance. Respect your path and your spirit, and honor the wisdom that lives inside of you. When you embrace the inner callings of your soul, you open a treasure trove of possibilities.
What has been on your mind will now come into you life… so stop the worries! What you give your energy to is a request to the Universe to bring that vibration into your life. So bring only goodness in.
Begin to rejoice in the present moment as possibilities are in the process of becoming reality. Keep calling to your dreams and they will float softly to you. Now is the time and you have all the magic in the universe at your fingertips.
Affirm: “I can dream my biggest dreams, and I have the right to attain everyone of them. Each day I wake, a new dream is made reality…. And I am grateful for it!”
All the best,
