Life Purpose – How To Live It… and Get Paid For It!

Discovering and fulfilling your life purpose is your ultimate goal because that’s what you’re here to do! …And for a very good reason.

This is probably the most exciting process – self-discovery. When you discover what you’re here to do your horizons open up and the way forward suddenly becomes clear. It’s like a breath of fresh air.

Most people are brought up to believe that they have to choose a job or career that first and foremost provides security and pays the bills. Straying from the conventional career choice is discouraged because it’s ‘not realistic’, ‘too risky’, ‘underpaid’ etc. etc. Not true!

So, let’s explore the exciting world of life purpose and how it is the superhighway to achieving fulfillment, happiness, and abundance.

What is Life Purpose?

There are differing views as to what life purpose is. One view is that it is what you do – the job or career you are ‘called’ to. Another view is that it is who you are meant to be, or become, during the course of your life. We believe it is both, and we’ll explain this by looking at both aspects and how they interconnect.

Soul Purpose

Soul purpose is related to who you are as a spiritual being.

You have chosen to experience a physical life on planet Earth in order to have experiences that will enable you to grow on a spiritual level in specific areas.

Dan Millman’s book “The Life You Were Born to Live” uses Pythagorean numerology based on your date of birth to identify your soul purpose (Dan calls it Life Purpose, I call it Soul Purpose). I’ve used Dan’s approach with all my clients and they have been amazed at how accurately it reflects their experiences and personal challenges. Try it!

Once you understand ‘why you are here’, the challenges you’ve faced, often repeatedly, start to make sense and give meaning to your life experiences. With a different perspective and an understanding of the significance of what has happened in the past, you can make different choices to create positive outcomes in the future, instead of repeating the same mistakes.

Ultimately, your soul purpose is to experience Love, Joy, Peace, and Abundance (LJPA) and your experiences in this lifetime will be the catalysts for you to recognize and overcome your core issues that are getting in the way.

Life Purpose

My definition of life purpose is that it is what you are here to do; your life purpose steers you to ideal situations to provide ‘evolutionary catalysts’ for your spiritual growth – your soul purpose. In effect, your life purpose is the enabler for your soul purpose.

For some people, their life purpose is obvious to them at an early age. They know what they want to do in life. They want to be a doctor or a lawyer. They have a vocation.

For most people, the possibility doesn’t even exist. They believe they are just here to make a living as best they can; to survive and save enough money to see them through retirement until they die. They go through job after job to make ends meet but carry with them a constant feeling of frustration; that something significant is missing from their life.

Understanding the concept of life purpose doesn’t necessarily mean you know what it is! It may be a mystery to you for years and you may only discover your purpose much later in life. I didn’t discover my life purpose until I was 54, and even now, 7 years later, I am still discovering its full meaning. There was a very good reason for that. I needed to have experiences that would prepare me for my life purpose and it was only when I reached the point of being ready that it was revealed to me.

One thing for sure is that your life purpose will be something you are passionate about and will use your natural talents.

Everything happens for a reason and everything you have experienced in your life to date is related to your life purpose, either directly if you’re already living it, or indirectly, as an apprenticeship to prepare you to fulfill it.

Soul Purpose and Life Purpose Symbiosis

life purpose soul purposeSoul Purpose and Life Purpose work symbiotically; they are mutually supportive and beneficial. To fulfill your soul purpose and experience Love, Joy, Peace and Abundance you have to fulfill your life purpose. Your life purpose is something you Love and you experience Joy as you do it. You are at Peace because there is no inner conflict between what you are doing and what you are truly here to do. You experience Abundance because you receive rewards from the Universe for fulfilling what you’re here to do and for the contribution you are making to the world.

The Universe always supports you in fulfilling your purpose.

The challenges you face in life are ‘evolutionary catalysts’ and ‘course corrections’ to steer you in the right direction, and present you with the lessons you need to learn to facilitate your spiritual growth.

How to Discover Your Life Purpose

If you’re struggling to discover your life purpose, I have a simple exercise to help you.

Start by reviewing your life experiences and picking out recurring themes that point to what your purpose might be. Then make a list of your natural talents and see how those talents relate to the themes you’ve identified.

You may experience an Aha moment and find the answer immediately, or you may have to sit with it and play with different ideas. Sit quietly and ask the Universe “How can I serve?” – then wait for answers.

How do you know when you’ve discovered it?

You just KNOW – intuitively, deeply, with certainty.

…And Get Paid For It

This might seem obvious, but to get paid for it you have to DO it!

This doesn’t mean you have to leap off a cliff and change everything all at once, but it does mean getting clear on exactly what it means in practice and developing a plan to transition from what you’re doing now. Focus on the outcome, not the obstacles!

Your life purpose doesn’t have to be your livelihood. You may decide to fulfill it through volunteer work or as a hobby. Just make sure that the way you choose to fulfill it is a conscious empowered choice that feels right.

Now let’s look at the subject of payment. I expect you immediately thought about payment in terms of money! Money is only one form of energy exchange and your payment can come in many different forms and from multiple directions.

Payment is governed by the Universal Law of Giving and Receiving. Giving and receiving operates in an infinite cycle. You give your product or service and you receive your reward.

This can come in the form of money or payments ‘in kind’. It might come directly from the recipient or from another source. You can choose what is appropriate for each ‘transaction’. It can work in different ways at different times.

Yes, we all need money to live in this world, and money has a role to play, but NOT ALWAYS! You can negotiate forms of payment that remove the necessity for money by providing you with goods or services directly that you would otherwise have had to give money for.

When you work in alignment with the Universal Law of Giving and Receiving you have an energy of giving and the receiving part follows naturally. Focus on the product or service you are giving, and be open and flexible about how you receive your reward and you’ll be amazed how easily abundance flows to you.

The Art of Manifesting With Quantum Prayer

“Ask for what you want, then be prepared to get it.” – Maya Angelou

Most of us are at least familiar with prayer, even if we may not practice it regularly. And perhaps the “traditional” version of prayer consists of asking for that which appears missing in your life, and often comes from a place of lack and disconnection from “God” or “Divine Source Consciousness”. With traditional prayer, you are holding a belief that there exists a place within time and space where this Consciousness does not exist. And yet this is impossible as Source is everywhere, at all times (omnipresent).

You cannot hold two opposing beliefs within your mind and heart as it will create a deep, inner conflict. You may be telling yourself that you know there is only Oneness and that everything is connected, and yet continue to make choices from a place of fear, rather than empowered trust.

Many people pray for material things such as a house, car or vacation while others pray for good health and happiness. And there are some people who pray only for themselves and some people who pray for not only themselves but all of humanity. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to pray, and you will know what is right for you, by the way it makes you feel.

If you come from a place of lack (not trusting God, the Universe, etc.), then you will ultimately see the world through fearful eyes and these distorted filters alter our perceptions of the Truth.  You may feel as if you are kind and giving, yet you have built an emotional wall to keep people at a certain distance. And if you are always feeling like life is a struggle and just has to be hard, then no matter how “hard” you pray or how often, your prayers will always seem to go unheard and unanswered.

This isn’t about “punishment” other than that which we impose upon ourselves. The Universe doesn’t judge and is not concerned with “good” or “bad”. It speaks in resonance and will simply bring things to or pull things from depending on the emotional feelings and energy developed around the situation. What you believe about it will ultimately determine what the Universe delivers (or does not deliver) onto your doorstep.

This IS about opening yourself up to receiving Divine guidance while coming from a place of wholeness. You reach out not to fill a gap or hole within yourself, but rather to take a literal dive into the unknown depths of your consciousness. It’s about opening yourself up to allowing greater opportunities to enter your life; which is determined by how much YOU show up! 😉 If you show the Universe you are serious about wanting to live the life of your dreams, by the things you DO, then the Universe will respond by aligning situations that are congruent with expanding your potential and abilities.

Quantum Prayer is simply the act of empowered receiving. While we are intending to connect with the Divine to receive guidance, we do so knowing that we are already complete, already whole and already One with the All. We allow we make welcome, we trust, we surrender to the flow. We do not simply “ask” and then lay in bed wide awake all night stressing out and worrying if it will come, happen, change, etc. That is the opposite of Quantum Prayer.

When we use Quantum Prayer, we know we have a role to play in keeping the creative energy flowing in our lives. We must be willing to show up for ourselves as much as we expect our prayers to be answered. When we show ourselves that we can actually count on ourselves, we form a trust that becomes unbreakable. When you trust yourself, your self-confidence soars and you are more easily able to embody and fully live the truth of who you really are. And this is the key to being the catalyst for the Universe to open up some serious doors for you. As I previously mentioned and I cannot drive this home enough; when you show the Universe you are finally serious about living a kick-ass life, it will deliver to you that which you need to kick ass!

10 Effective Ways To Keep Your Sacred Space Sacred

Sage For Clearing

One of the most important things we can do as spiritual beings is to keep ourselves and our personal space clear of lower vibrational energy.

What is lower vibrational energy?

It is a collective of our negative thoughts, fear, worry, greed, addictions, abuse…you get the picture. These lower thought forms can stick to us, our environment and cause havoc in our lives. It can weigh us down and prevent us from raising our vibrations and consciousness.

Below are 10 simple yet effective ways you can clear and shift your space.

1. Use of Sage

The ritual of burning sage has been used throughout time for thousands of years. Sage is packaged in bundles and loose in bags. Be sure you have a shell or heat resistant dish to help catch the ashes. *For those who are sensitive to smoke, sage mist is equally effective*

2. Place a Crystal By the Front Door 

The crystal acts as a gateway keeper absorbing any unwanted energy (stress, fear, anxiety etc.) so it doesn’t enter your space. Suggested crystals: hematite, black tourmaline, tiger’s eye, selenite, jet, blue lace agate and turquoise.

3. Burn a Combo of One Black and One White Candle

The black to absorb negativity, the white to bring in the light.

4. Place a Bowl of Water That Contains Two Tea Lights and a Pinch of Sea Salt in The Center of Your Home.

After the tea lights have finished burning, pour the water and salt outside into the grass. Do not pour down your sink or toilet,  you may create some plumbing issues.

5. Sprinkle Either Black Salt or Sea Salt Across The Threshold of The Building.

After clearing the inside, I sprinkle salt as a sealant keeping the inside of my dwelling and or business crisp, clean and clear.

6. Recite the Abbe Male Spiritus Prayer – A sacred prayer for banishing.

In Nomini Patris
(In the name of the father)


Et Fili 
(and the son)


Et Spiritus Sancti 
(and the Holy Spirit)



Abbe Male Spiritus 
(be gone evil spirits)


Abbe Male Spiritus


Abbe Male Spiritus



In Nomini Patris


Et Fili


Et Spiritus Sancti


In Nomini Jesu Christi 
(In the name of Jesus the Christ)

Amen. 
(So Be It)

7. Blend 4 Mojo Bags Filled With 3 Different Herbs 

Place the 4 bags in the 4 corners of your home. Suggested herbs: rosemary, sandalwood, angelica, clove, cedar, sage, thyme, peppermint and sweetgrass.

*Make sure the mojo bags are out of reach of children and animals.*

8. Burn Incense

Burning incense clears and brings in good energy. I suggest: Blue Nag Champa, Dragon’s Blood, Sandalwood, Chandan, Frankincense, Amber, Myrrh and Copal.

9. Clear the Clutter

When we have clutter in our space that we don’t need or any use for it, it causes stagnancy in our space. You can always donate the items if you are struggling with throwing your old goodies away. A home that is physically clean = An energetically clean home.

10. Have Zero Drama Tolerance 

Keep away the drama and the drama-filled people and triggers. Drama is an energy and vibrates and will attract a like frequency. You can request for spirit to assist with keeping your home and or space clear of unwanted energetic influences.

Tip: Be sure to stay on top of keeping your space clear. We have many experiences within our daily activities. Some influences are more of a challenge than others. Therefore, it is necessary to space clear one a weekly and yes, sometimes daily basis.

The benefits of space clearing are: healthier relationships, healthier bodies, abundance, joy, and raising of our consciousness.

I can’t think of any reason why anyone would not want to keep their own personal environment feeling clean and filled with light.

Blessings and Light,

Use The Force: How to Be an Awesomely Conscious Creator

According to Wikipedia – The Force is a binding, metaphysical, and ubiquitous power. It is the supernatural flow of energy originated from the concept of Prana, or qi/chi/ki; “the all-pervading vital energy of the universe”.

If we understand The Force to be the energy that provides life within us all and connects us all within and to the Universe itself, then it would serve us well to see it for the amazing tool that it is. One would be wise to take the time to learn how to use it proficiently as understanding the Force is key to consciously communicating clearly to the Universe what kind of life we’d like to live.  Consider the Force to be our cosmic loud speaker or radio and whatever station we choose to broadcast out, the Universe will echo back in physical manifestations in your life accordingly; under the illusion sometimes that you had nothing to do with it at all (unless you are aware of this awesome symbiosis taking place of course). This is how most of us fall under the guise of thinking we have no control over what happens in our lives and is what I imagine to be a driving cause for the continuous survival of Deterministic beliefs.

It matters not, though if you are aware this is what is happening, but the Universe always has and always will be…your life canvas; manifest delivery system…and shows up merely as replies and answers to calls you have made. If they were drunken calls made at 3 am, well you know how that goes. 🙂 We might see the results in the morning and wonder where we are, how we got there and why we are broke and feel like we got hit by a truck? But if we call fully conscious and aware of what we are doing, which is simply setting intentions, building energetic foundations on which you are welcoming a certain resonance to come into your life, then we begin to see just how our lives can shift in big ways.

People often get caught up in emotions, but they are simply way-showers. It serves us best to not get too attached to them. And to also not try to avoid certain ones simply because they are unpleasant. What we resist persists and if we bury certain emotions over and over, they soon start to cause distress and discord and disharmony in the body; which are setting the stage for the manifestation of? Yep, you guessed it…dis-ease. Emotions point the way as guide posts to areas of our lives that require tending to either because they cause us undo stress, pain, and disturbance and therefore need to be looked at, accepted, love, integrated and hopefully learned from so that it can be fully healed and no longer cause disruption in our lives.

Or on the flip side, things that instill a sense of connection to life (anything that gives you that “woohoo” feeling or makes you say “holy crap, I feel alive!!!”) is indication you need to keep doing these things…because they are literally feeding your soul…replenishing your spirit…refueling your Prana or Force. All in balance/moderation of course, we all know the phrase “too much of a good thing”. The way I see it, whatever helps to keep you centered (which is being neutral love) does incorporate and integrate both positive and negative emotions. It is only our human condition which teaches us to avoid pain and sadness. But these both can be some of our greatest forms of release, reflection and growth. When we relinquish our judgments on our emotions, we allow ourselves to let them flow freely though us as intended and to not sit within us, stagnant.

Keeping your energy level at optimum levels is vital to being a Conscious Creator. When you are a natural-born-giver (like myself), you tend to give of your own life force to others. This happens usually unbeknownst to you, and especially with those you care about.  It can literally leave you feeling drained and horrible even though your conscious mind will always tell you that you just did something nice or were a good friend, etc. Being empathic, it took me years to understand why helping others was such an ingrained calling, but didn’t always feel good to me. I often felt selfish for even expecting it to feel good as I thought giving is giving; you don’t get anything from it.

But what a lesson has come from just letting that load of nonsense go! To serve others from a fully conscious heart space, where I no longer give from my own energetic reserves (which always came with a subconscious expectation of a thank you or returned favor someday) is the most freedom I have ever felt in my life. Now when I give, it comes from a completely different place; a place that is constantly free-flowing and tapped into the love of Source. A place that does not know lack or going without, so there is no fear, and no expectations, from myself or from others. Whereas before I would even judge myself after being depleted…did I give enough? Could I have done more?

Now it flows from me without even having time to think if it’s enough. I think less and feel more in my giving and this has done wonders for my relationships all around; with others and especially with me when it comes to manifesting. It all ties together in where my perception lies about how I feel about myself and I notice the more I choose to love and accept myself (as perfectly imperfect, flaws and all), the more easily I am able to allow positive things and awesome opportunities to flow into my life. Because on a subconscious level, my perception has shifted from unworthy to worthy and this stems simply put from originally feeling disconnected to Source, the Universe and others. When you can clearly see the connection within all things and you see how beautifully and delicately you and your life weave into this enormous cosmic web, you can rest a little easier, feel a little safer and have a lot more trust in yourself and your world. Because you begin to take on the awareness that it is you who is creating it, and simply with that awareness comes such a rush of empowerment that I can only describe as literally dancing with The Force itself. Or perhaps even surrendering to the flow of All that Is.

It has taken me 36 years to even muster the courage for me to say that when it comes to knowing how to manifest great things into my life, I “kinda get it” now. I am still a constantly evolving work in progress, and I love doing daily little life experiments to see simply how my own reaction and my own perceptions of these so-called things “happening to me” can alter the outcomes of these said events. And every single time I consciously choose to look at the issue at hand in a brighter light, and change my perspective from victim mode to student mode (what can I learn from this?), the situation itself seems to lose steam; lose power in its ability to instill fear and panic within me. The dust seems to settle that much faster and therefore I can also see a clearer next move much faster as well. This is BEYOND empowering, and something I have just caught onto I’d say within the last few years…and have only recently really begun to sink my teeth into, to see just how deep this manifestation rabbit hole really goes.

For years and years I was under the subconscious impression that life had to be difficult, if you didn’t work hard you didn’t deserve anything (life does not just provide) and that if you ever put yourself or your needs first, you were selfish and that was unacceptable. But after years of being in relationships that always felt one-sided and left me utterly exhausted and drained, I realized something. I realized that things never went “my way” because I was always so fixated on specifics, had so many tight expectations; from myself and everyone else in my life, and if either one let me down I tended to retreat and/or withdraw. I had an underlying expectation of struggle and therefore always found myself struggling…in all areas of my life including relationships, jobs, etc.

However a simple shift, a single seed planted in my subconscious mind that I love myself enough to create the life I want…has literally put everything in motion. As soon as I consciously began to treat myself better (quit smoking, eat healthier, do daily yoga and meditation, and surround myself with people who are also empowered rather than “complainers” or “Debbie downers”), my entire life began to shift in huge ways. New opportunities opened up that would never have shown up prior because I never thought they were even possible due to my lack of confidence.

By using The Force, I instead chose to wake up each day with a smile (as annoying as that might sound lol), and no matter how shitty of a day I could’ve been having, I was viciously aware of my perceptions and reactions to things and was constantly on my own ass to see things through different eyes; in a more production, positive, “what can you do FOR me” way. It’s not an easy feat by any means, especially if you are used to be reactive rather than proactive. You must retrain your subconscious to let go of the reigns in these vital times and let your conscious mind take the lead.

By consciously choosing reactions, we are taking full responsibility for ourselves in the hugest way possible. We can no longer blame others for “offending” us, because we have taken on the awareness that their words really did nothing to harm us, it was our perception that caused the pain…and our reaction simply shows us now there’s something there that needs to be healed. Once it no longer causes a reaction, then the work is done. Many great minds have said we have so much learn from that which annoys or pisses us off and I couldn’t agree more.

So, to sign off here I’m going to go full Star Wars nerd on you and recommend a little Jedi mind trick I use on myself that helps with developing your Conscious Creator skills. Whenever you feel overwhelmed or a victim to your thoughts or reactions, simply stop in the moment, breath deep to connect and remember that you are NOT your thoughts, but the observer behind them. You are NOT your emotions, but the Consciousness that gives them light and meaning. You are NOT a victim, you are a sliver of Source no less than the vast and great cosmos. So, don’t just sit back and admire the stars, love yourself enough to know you are one, and then BE one. Shine on. <3

There’s An Owl In My Living Room ~ How Symbols Help You Evolve

Some people think that symbols are the fanciful creations of poets, musicians and artists. I know I used to believe that. But after years of life coaching, and hearing metaphor after metaphor from my clients, I now realize that artists don’t create the symbols of human existence. They observe them. Our lives are filled to the brim with meaningful symbols. Life is always communicating with us symbolically, and we cool thing is this — we can benefit greatly from the conversation, if we just “listen” to it.

I invite you to start paying more attention to the symbols in your life. Start by looking at what I call “the big three” — your home, your car and the animals that come into your life.

From my clients, I have learned that your house represents you, your car represents you “on the go” and the animals that come into your life are bringing specific messages.

Let me use my life as an example.

Currently, I am going through a period of break down (“death”), a time for ending old ways and allowing new ways of being to emerge. It’s not really my idea of a “good time” but it’s a very necessary phase. If you follow my posts, you probably already know, I took a month-long personal transformation tour a few weeks back, and boy did it stir things up!

When I returned home, I found they had begun the planned renovation on the place I’ve been living. Interestingly, they had basically started tearing out walls and flooring right around the time I began a deep workshop on my trip; that is, right as I was tearing out some of the old “walls” within myself.

So my home has definitely been reflecting me.

Then, the day after I got back, I took my car to the shop and found out it needed a whole new transmission.

Wow.

House being rebuilt.

Car being rebuilt.

Me being rebuilt.

Could it be any clearer?

owl clnYes, apparently it could. Because last week, one of the renovation workers left a window or sliding door open and an owl decided to come in and spend the night in my living room.

That’s not a typo. We found an owl in the house. That’s him (or her) in the photo. I am aware that the owl is about wisdom and is related to the third eye, your intuitive chakra. But after I made the video above, I got compelled to look up the meaning of the owl online, and I found this:

“The traditional meaning of the owl spirit animal is the announcer of death, most likely symbolic like a life transition, change.”

Okay, let’s check the symbolism scoreboard:

1. My car dies.

2. My home gets deconstructed so much that I’m told I need to move out.

3. An owl, the “announcer of death and transition” decides to sleep over in my torn-down-to-sheet-rock living room.

I’d say three for three, wouldn’t you?

And somehow for me, it’s much easier to face all this death and destruction (and impending rebirth) with the Universe talking to me symbolically. It sort of says to me, “this may not be fun, but it’s meant to be. Just go with it.”

And so I am.

What are your home, car and the animals in your life (or other symbols) saying to you?

Make it your habit to listen to what life is saying to you. And if you have anything to share, I’d love for you to do so below.

Love, blessings, and rebirth,

Vicki

4 Great Tips for Creating a Powerful Vision Board That Will Manifest Your Dreams

Video Source: Chakraboosters Youtube (click to subscribe to Channel)

Author’s Note: The best way I know to create your dream life is to start with a great blueprint — a Vision Board of what you deeply desire in all areas of your life (it’s brought me my home, my soulmate, my album, my book and much more!). I will be teaching my first online Vision Board Workshop in the first part of April. See the bottom of this article for more details.

This week, we continue to explore how you can make an amazing Vision Board that truly reflects your deepest desires. So far I’ve shown you why the Feng Shui Bagua is a great template for a Vision Board and you’ve learned the first three of my 10 tips for creating a great Vision Board.  If you missed those first two posts, you can read #1 here and check out #2 here.

Our next four tips for this week are:

Tip #4 – Include Yourself in Your Vision

People tend to put what they want on their board, but often forget to include themselves. Unfortunately, it’s quite possible for your powerful, subconscious mind to look at your board and enjoy it, but not OWN it. Just as you might watch a romance movie and be happy for the lovers in the film, you can look at your Vision Board and be happy about it while not really seeing yourself IN it.

I recommend that you put at least one photo of yourself in each of the nine bagua sectors to get your subconscious mind used to the idea that the fantastic life on your board is yours. Choose pictures that are applicable – a baby photo in the Children & Creativity sector, you with your lover or with the silhouette of a would-be lover in your Romance & Marriage sector, and so on.

Tip #5 – Stay Unlimited (with a caveat)

The Universe can work miracles for you. While it’s important to believe that anything is possible, I have found from experience that you only stay as unlimited as is possible for your mind and emotions. They need to be able to believe that what you put on your board is possible. If you go too far outside what you think is actually possible, you may find yourself arguing with your board saying, “Nah, I can’t have that.” If that happens, your board could actually have a regressive effect as your psyche pushes back and rigidly clings to the status quo.

So find ways to push your board to the limits of what you think is possible, but don’t go past those limits

Tip #6 – Make It Just For You

At first this might seem quite obvious, but please take a moment (or more) to really check in with yourself. Ask, “Is everything on my board something I truly want NOW? Or is it something I used to want?  Or something that others want for me?”

We are evolving souls, so you can expect that your desires will shift over time. To create an amazing life, you need to really discover what is amazing to you now. You don’t want any outdated or so-so visions are your board. Question your old desires to see if they still hold true. And then find the images you need that really capture how you feel now.

Tip #7 – Create Stand-Out Elements

Your board is flat, but it doesn’t have to stay that way. Add dimension by gluing on some three-dimensional elements such as charms, souvenirs or any other little objects that inspire you. Nature elements are nice to add, like a feather, a rock or a shell that you love. You can add special border lace or glue on a mirror (great for the recognition area).

There is no limit when it comes to adding stand-out elements. If you want an element to pop more, create a cardboard “spring.” Fold thick card stock paper like an accordion, glue the object onto the spring, then glue the cardboard onto the board.

You can even add an interactive object to your board. A small dry erase board could be used to write daily inspirational sayings, or to create a goal chart that you can color in as you move toward your goal.

Those are the tips for this week. Keep adding to your board and enjoying this process of getting to know yourself and your dreams more deeply. Make sure to catch next week’s post when I’ll complete this series by sharing the final three tips for creating an amazing Vision Board.

Use The Force: How to Be an Awesomely Conscious Creator

Editor/Author’s Note: In honor of one of my all-time favorite movies regaining consciousness this weekend, I wanted to share a previous article of mine from earlier this year. Enjoy, and May The Force Be With You! 🙂

 

According to Wikipedia – The Force is a binding, metaphysical, and ubiquitous power. It is the supernatural flow of energy originated from the concept of Prana, or qi/chi/ki; “the all-pervading vital energy of the universe”.

If we understand The Force to be the energy that provides life within us all and connects us all within and to the Universe itself, then it would serve us well to see it for the amazing tool that it is. One would be wise to take the time to learn how to use it proficiently as understanding the Force is key to consciously communicating clearly to the Universe what kind of life we’d like to live.  Consider the Force to be our cosmic loud speaker or radio and whatever station we choose to broadcast out, the Universe will echo back in physical manifestations in your life accordingly; under the illusion sometimes that you had nothing to do with it at all (unless you are aware of this awesome symbiosis taking place of course). This is how most of us fall under the guise of thinking we have no control over what happens in our lives and is what I imagine to be a driving cause for the continuous survival of Deterministic beliefs.

It matters not, though if you are aware this is what is happening, but the Universe always has and always will be…your life canvas; manifest delivery system…and shows up merely as replies and answers to calls you have made. If they were drunken calls made at 3 am, well you know how that goes. :) We might see the results in the morning and wonder where we are, how we got there and why we are broke and feel like we got hit by a truck? But if we call fully conscious and aware of what we are doing, which is simply setting intentions, building energetic foundations on which you are welcoming a certain resonance to come into your life, then we begin to see just how our lives can shift in big ways.

People often get caught up in emotions, but they are simply way-showers. It serves us best to not get too attached to them. And to also not try to avoid certain ones simply because they are unpleasant. What we resist persists and if we bury certain emotions over and over, they soon start to cause distress and discord and disharmony in the body; which are setting the stage for the manifestation of? Yep, you guessed it…dis-ease. Emotions point the way as guide posts to areas of our lives that require tending to either because they cause us undo stress, pain, and disturbance and therefore need to be looked at, accepted, love, integrated and hopefully learned from so that it can be fully healed and no longer cause disruption in our lives.

Or on the flip side, things that instill a sense of connection to life (anything that gives you that “woohoo” feeling or makes you say “holy crap, I feel alive!!!”) is indication you need to keep doing these things…because they are literally feeding your soul…replenishing your spirit…refueling your Prana or Force. All in balance/moderation of course, we all know the phrase “too much of a good thing”. The way I see it, whatever helps to keep you centered (which is being neutral love) does incorporate and integrate both positive and negative emotions. It is only our human condition which teaches us to avoid pain and sadness. But these both can be some of our greatest forms of release, reflection and growth. When we relinquish our judgments on our emotions, we allow ourselves to let them flow freely though us as intended and to not sit within us, stagnant.

Keeping your energy level at optimum levels is vital to being a Conscious Creator. When you are a natural-born-giver (like myself), you tend to give of your own life force to others. This happens usually unbeknownst to you, and especially with those you care about.  It can literally leave you feeling drained and horrible even though your conscious mind will always tell you that you just did something nice or were a good friend, etc. Being empathic, it took me years to understand why helping others was such an ingrained calling, but didn’t always feel good tome. I often felt selfish for even expecting it to feel good as I thought giving is giving; you don’t get anything from it.

But what a lesson has come from just letting that load of nonsense go! To serve others from a fully conscious heart space, where I no longer give from my own energetic reserves (which always came with a subconscious expectation of a thank you or returned favor someday) is the most freedom I have ever felt in my life. Now when I give, it comes from a completely different place; a place that is constantly free-flowing and tapped into the love of Source. A place that does not know lack or going without, so there is no fear, and no expectations, from myself or from others. Whereas before I would even judge myself after being depleted…did I give enough? Could I have done more?

Now it flows from me without even having time to think if it’s enough. I think less and feel more in my giving and this has done wonders for my relationships all around; with others and especially with me when it comes to manifesting. It all ties together in where my perception lies about how I feel about myself and I notice the more I choose to love and accept myself (as perfectly imperfect, flaws and all), the more easily I am able to allow positive things and awesome opportunities to flow into my life. Because on a subconscious level, my perception has shifted from unworthy to worthy and this stems simply put from originally feeling disconnected to Source, the Universe and others. When you can clearly see the connection within all things and you see how beautifully and delicately you and your life weave into this enormous cosmic web, you can rest a little easier, feel a little safer and have a lot more trust in yourself and your world. Because you begin to take on the awareness that it is you who is creating it, and simply with that awareness comes such a rush of empowerment that I can only describe as literally dancing with The Force itself. Or perhaps even surrendering to the flow of All that Is.

It has taken me 36 years to even muster the courage for me to say that when it comes to knowing how to manifest great things into my life, I “kinda get it” now. I am still a constantly evolving work in progress, and I love doing daily little life experiments to see simply how my own reaction and my own perceptions of these so-called things “happening to me” can alter the outcomes of these said events. And every single time I consciously choose to look at the issue at hand in a brighter light, and change my perspective from victim mode to student mode (what can I learn from this?), the situation itself seems to lose steam; lose power in its ability to instill fear and panic within me. The dust seems to settle that much faster and therefore I can also see a clearer next move much faster as well. This is BEYOND empowering, and something I have just caught onto I’d say within the last few years…and have only recently really begun to sink my teeth into, to see just how deep this manifestation rabbit hole really goes.

For years and years I was under the subconscious impression that life had to be difficult, if you didn’t work hard you didn’t deserve anything (life does not just provide) and that if you ever put yourself or your needs first, you were selfish and that was unacceptable. But after years of being in relationships that always felt one-sided and left me utterly exhausted and drained, I realized something. I realized that things never went “my way” because I was always so fixated on specifics, had so many tight expectations; from myself and everyone else in my life, and if either one let me down I tended to retreat and/or withdraw. I had an underlying expectation of struggle and therefore always found myself struggling…in all areas of my life including relationships, jobs, etc.

However a simple shift, a single seed planted in my subconscious mind that I love myself enough to create the life I want…has literally put everything in motion. As soon as I consciously began to treat myself better (quit smoking, eat healthier, do daily yoga and meditation, and surround myself with people who are also empowered rather than “complainers” or “Debbie downers”), my entire life began to shift in huge ways. New opportunities opened up that would never have shown up prior because I never thought they were even possible due to my lack of confidence.

By using The Force, I instead chose to wake up each day with a smile (as annoying as that might sound lol), and no matter how shitty of a day I could’ve been having, I was viciously aware of my perceptions and reactions to things and was constantly on my own ass to see things through different eyes; in a more production, positive, “what can you do FOR me” way. It’s not an easy feat by any means, especially if you are used to be reactive rather than proactive. You must retrain your subconscious to let go of the reigns in these vital times and let your conscious mind take the lead.

By consciously choosing reactions, we are taking full responsibility for ourselves in the hugest way possible. We can no longer blame others for “offending” us, because we have taken on the awareness that their words really did nothing to harm us, it was our perception that caused the pain…and our reaction simply shows us now there’s something there that needs to be healed. Once it no longer causes a reaction, then the work is done. Many great minds have said we have so much learn from that which annoys or pisses us off and I couldn’t agree more.

So, to sign off here I’m going to go full Star Wars nerd on you and recommend a little Jedi mind trick I use on myself that helps with developing your Conscious Creator skills. Whenever you feel overwhelmed or a victim to your thoughts or reactions, simply stop in the moment, breath deep to connect and remember that you are NOT your thoughts, but the observer behind them. You are NOT your emotions, but the Consciousness that gives them light and meaning. You are NOT a victim, you are a sliver of Source no less than the vast and great cosmos. So, don’t just sit back and admire the stars, love yourself enough to know you are one, and then BE one. Shine on. <3

9 Rules For Living From an Ayahuasca Shaman

Dylan Charles, Editor | Waking Times

“All the authentic drinkers of yagé in the Amazon that I have met share a great love for nature and all humanity, and they are outspoken protectors of the rainforest and the good way of all that is right.” ~Jonathon Miller Weisberger, Rainforest Medicine

By itself, ayahuasca as a transformational medicine offers us profound opportunities for spiritual awakening, physical renewal and reconnection to the most important aspects of life and nature. Journeying with the vine of souls is unlike anything else in this world, and while many have shared their personal stories of harrowing nights in ceremony, another chief aspect of this medicine tradition is less often discussed: the valuable lessons to be learned from time spent with traditional plant medicine masters.

Sadly, true Amazonian medicine elders are a dying breed. To be in the presence of a genuine master is a treasured experience, and those of them still with us exemplify the virtues of living a life aligned with nature, devoted to spiritual development, and focused on the well-being of others.

I have been blessed with the good fortune of spending time with and learning directly from Secoya elders, who are the torch-bearers of a unique lineage of spiritual masters in the upper Amazon. Their tradition, that of Gods Multi-Colored People, as they know it, is the longest un-broken and non-syncretic tradition of working with the sacred brew Yagé, or Ayahuasca.

The attitude, demeanor, habits and character of these ‘abuelitos’ symbolize the simple purity and deep peace that may be found with dedication to this spiritual path. Reflecting on my time spent with the Secoya, I’ve realized that many of the best lessons come not when they are teaching, but when they are just being themselves.

Here are 9 simple rules for living, as learned from proper Yagé shaman of the Amazon.

1. Abundant laughter is the hallmark of spiritual achievement. Laugh first and laugh often.

2. All life is beautiful and priceless, and even the most pitiful or comical of creatures is infused with the sacred.

3. Always be productive in the service to others, and even if all you can offer is a smile, your positive contribution is important.

4. Love everyone equally, for we are all equal in spirit and life.

5. Silence is golden. Communicating without speaking is more penetrative than attempting to express the infinite with language.

6. It is in stillness you will find that which you seek. The ability to highly control one’s impulses is the key to spiritual advancement.

7. Gentleness is often more powerful than force.

8. Sincere dedication to spiritual development is the highest calling in life.

9. Follow nature instead of following man, for the lessons in nature are universally true and infinitely pure.

Secoya Elders: Don Delfin Payaguaje, Don Augustin Payaguaje, and Don Rogelio Payaguaje

Final Thoughts

“In the collision between the remoteness and purity of the rainforest realms and the crassness of consumer culture, the difference is so extreme that for the most part there has been no authentic or practical method for this medicine system as traditionally practiced to integrate and adapt to the changing times.’ ~Jonathon Miller Weisberger, Rainforest Medicine

As Ayahuasca continues to push its way ever further into the consciousness of contemporary society, the brew may be available for us to drink, but the presence of traditional elders is fading. The transmission of their priceless cultural knowledge is still happening today, however, and in honoring their presence there is much we can learn about how to live a good and productive life in harmonious balance with nature.

In the following video, ethnobotanist and conservationist Jonathon Miller-Weisberger explains some of the ways in which the Secoya tradition is so unique.

How Trust Can Bring You Abundance

“Someone who thinks the world is always cheating him is right. He is missing that wonderful feeling of trust in someone or something.”
— Eric Hoffer

I believe in what I do and what I have to say, so when I saw this new video circulating Facebook I just had to share it with you.

It’s called An 8-Foot-Tall Woman Is Destroying The Entire Music Industry’ and it’s a TED talk by Amanda Palmer.  Take a look for yourself, in case you haven’t seen this already: 

The Penny Drops!

What this brave and courageous woman had to say resonated so much with my soul, it left me shell-shocked for about an hour while I tried to process this invaluable information and apply it to my entire life.

What stood out for me were the similar experiences of self-doubt:

  • Is what I’m doing of use to others?
  • Should I get a ‘real’ job?
  • Am I just kidding myself?

I have 3 passions in life, every one of them has brought me to these questions (and brought me to my knees!).

Careers with Bad Reputations 

I started out as a musician in a band but…

My Limiting Belief:  Musicians are bums and lay-abouts, they don’t ear money. No-one takes you seriously.  Get a real job.

Then I pursued my love for art and I became a full-time artist but…

My Limiting Belief:  You can’t make money being an artist, you’ll struggle all your life.  Get a real job.

Then — oh God forbid — I started to write!  And…

My Limiting Belief:  Writers are poor, they don’t earn money.  If you don’t make it onto the Best Sellers list you’ll never make it.  Get a real job.

Money, Monks and Misunderstandings

The worst part of it was that I am a ‘spiritual’ writer and there is a hefty stigma that you should not earn money off spiritual advice.  After all, stereo-typically monks, nuns and Buddhists are humble, simple, poor people.

I also tend to shudder when I see a sight offering spiritual advice accompanied by a paid subscription.  However, I’m the one with the problem — everyone has a right to earn money.  

Money is an energy swap.  I give you, you give me.  The figure of eight is complete and everyone walks away with an equal exchange.

I am one of those people who cringes when I have to ask for money.  Something in me thinks that it’s like begging and that is shameful.  I seriously need to get over it if I’m going to keep up my chosen career.  If I don’t, there’s a nice cashier job waiting for me at my local grocer.

The Two Common Stumbling Blocks

Asking for this ‘energetic exchange’ or money brings a strange dichotomy.  The problem, as I see it, lies with these two things:

  • Self-belief/love — Do you believe that your product/service/talent is worth it?  I.e. are you worth it? Are you creating/providing a service from a place of love and passion?  Or is this a means to an end?  From my experience, if you don’t love what you’re doing, you’re in big trouble when it comes to integrity.  Doubt will creep in where there is no passion.
  • Fair exchange — Here’s the humdinger.  What to charge? Yikes, I’ve encountered so many people who suffer big time with this.  They either charge too little for their expertise or they charge too much.  In the latter case, it’s just because they may be in a profession where there is potential to charge a lot but they are not experientially there yet.  They shoot themselves in the foot by charging professional prices with beginners experience.

The Solution

Love what you do.  Have a burning passion for what you do.  Trust in your clientele or the people you exchange your services with.  If there is a way that you can let them determine what you are worth, then go for it.  Trust that they will reimburse you with fairness and integrity.

I’m not saying everyone will give you what you or your services are worth but it’s in my experience that more people than not, will compensate you appropriately when given the chance.

Letting as Opposed to Making

In the video, Amanda Palmer said that instead of asking how to make people pay for services you should let them pay.  That was my ‘a-ha’ moment.

With our economies in collapse and the entire global population wondering if money will even be present in our future, this novel idea of trust in commerce rings bells in my head.

We are moving into a new consciousness on this planet — heart-centered living — and this kind of energy exchange just might work!

Let’s Put Integrity to the Test

I’m willing to put my money where my mouth is (pun intended!).  I’ve just self-published my second book, ‘Carpe Diem or Bust — a Spiritual Guide to the Good Life’, and I want to share it with the world — whether I make money from it or not.

Of course, I’d like to make money as I’ve also got bills to pay but I believe in this book so much that I’d rather it got read than having it be just another Amazon book statistic. That’s not why I wrote it.

I know it will help people but I also know that a lot of people won’t read it because they can’t afford the luxury of buying books right now.  So, in light of what has just been discussed, I am offering my book to you for free.

I trust that you will enjoy it and find the information on the pages of value and should you wish to contribute — by donating to keep me and my passions alive — then you are most welcome to pay whatever you want to.

The Top 5 (Surprising) Energetic Secrets to Manifesting Abundance and Success

success

by Sage Kingsley Goddard

If you’ve been a student and practitioner of the Law of Attraction, you’ve probably noticed that some of your desires manifest easily while others take a loooooong time. No matter how many affirmations you say and Vision Boards you make.

In this article, I’ll share with you some of my top success secrets that I personally used to go from bankrupt and homeless to making 6 figures doing what I love. I always share empowering tools and techniques that go beyond typical LoA, so you can really experience the transformation you need deep within, and really live your dream life.

SECRET #1 – LOVE YOURSELF

Radically. Radiantly. Unconditionally. No. Matter. What.

“But I DO love myself, really, I do!”

Ah, my friend, but do you love yourself ENOUGH?

Happy woman with heart-compressedLoving yourself NMW (no matter what) means you love, cherish and celebrate your YOUnique gifits and beauty, and you KNOW beyond any doubt: “I 100% deserve, desire and welcome all the best things in life.”

It means you RECEIVE and GIVE in a balanced way.

You treat yourself to enough “Me Time, Be Time” along with doing and producing (work) time.

And it means healthy self-love guides you on a daily basis so you make healthy choices for self-care, you do what you love with people who totally GET and celebrate you, and maintain healthy boundaries..

If your self-love is not deep enough or not fully expressed, this impedes your manifestation powers, not only for attracting love, but also for doing joyous meaningful work you love, and magnetizing MONEY.

(For more about self-love, check out Radiant Radical Self-Love here)


SECRET #2 – 
CLEAR & ALIGN YOUR ENERGY FIELD.

“Raise your vibration”
“Align with what you really want”

These are buzz-phrases these days, but HOW do you really DO that?

The full answer to that question would require more space than I have here, but for starters, it helps to be aware that there is much more to this than most people realize.

Clearing and aligning your energy field means making vibrational adjustments – both larger huge shifts such as you get from a powerful healing session or retreat – as well as having DAILY PRACTICES for clearing out the negative and bringing in the positive ENERGY.

Your approach needs to include:

chakra flowChakra energizing
Aura healing
Connecting with the Divine/Guides/Angels/Highest Self
Intuitive development
Healing past lives, ancestral patterns
Forgiveness & Choosing Love Over Fear
Grounding
Harmonizing frequencies

Does this sound like a lot? It is. The good news is, there are proven practices that can help you master the flow of energy within you and in your life.

Here is a mantra for you:

“Everything is energy, and energy is EVERYTHING.”

The next secret to success is probably the MOST commonly overlooked & misunderstood of all…

SECRET #3 – REPROGRAM YOUR B.S.!

B.S. = YOUR BELIEFS TO SHIFT!

Does even a teensy bit of you believe any of these…?

Rich people are ruining the planet.
Money is evil.
Money causes stress.
It’s not spiritual to be rich or to charge a lot for what I do.
The economy sucks nowadays and it’s hard to make a good living.
I’m not good with money.
I can attract money but it’s hard to keep it.
No matter how much money I have, I worry that it’s not enough.

If any of those beliefs triggered an inner response, it is ESSENTIAL that you clear out those B.S. Beliefs to Shift and — lean in, this is the most important part – not only at your conscious mind but at the SUBCONSCIOUS LEVEL.

“Aha!” you say. “So THIS is why saying affirmations a bajillion times and making a pretty vision board was not enough.” Exactly!

Your subconscious mind governs 95% of what you think, say and do.

Modern neuroscience confirms this. According to Dr. Bruce Lipton, best-selling author of The Biology of Belief, the renowned cellular biologist and scientist who discovered “epigenetics,” the power of our BELIEFS is so unlimited, we can even override our genetic makeup.

If you want to know what limiting beliefs you have, just look at your life — especially the PATTERNS.

If you see yourself attracting the wrong clients (or not enough right clients), financial problems, feeling stuck at your “Golden Handcuffs” job, bouncing from one idea to another but going nowhere fast, these all indicate B.S. to replace about money.

So how do you access your subconscious to change your beliefs?

Here’s the key: The Theta brainwave is the record button for your subconscious mind.

We all go in and out of Theta brainwave several times a day, especially just before and after sleep. One way to change your subconscious beliefs with Theta brainwave is to listen to 100% POSITIVE abundance statements just before bed and while sleeping. (The Aligning with Abundance audio is a fantastic Theta brain entrainment tool.)

To reprogram your beliefs, you can also:  work with a qualified hypnotherapist, learn self-hypnosis, improve your meditation skills…. The key is to REPLACE the worst beliefs you have about money, and consistently reprogram them.

Affirmations can be used, but most people do not know use them properly, or they use the wrong affirmations (which can do more harm than good).

When you consistently master your energy & beliefs, you master your money & your life!
For example, one of my clients had limiting beliefs about the value of her message as a speaker. She felt, “What can I say that other people haven’t already said?”

After just 2 sessions of working on shifting that B.S., she landed multiple speaking gigs and when she spoke from her heart about her story as a cancer survivor, she made a huge impact on people’s lives, stepped up and launched her business, quadrupling her income within 2 months. She’s now a prosperous business owner, speaker and healer!

SECRET #4 – GET CLEAR… AND GET IN GEAR!

Image from www.tinybuddha.com.

Image from www.tinybuddha.com.

Getting clear so you can get in gear means clarifying your vision of who you are, what you desire, what are your gifts and mission, who are you here to serve and what do you help them with.

You don’t have to have your entire life planned out (it’s all in the journey)… But as the old Jewish proverb goes, “If you don’t know where you are going, you’re liable to end up where you are headed.”

Put your AT-tention on your IN-tention.

I like to say to myself, “Hocus pocus, FOCUS!”

If you are not as clear as you’d like to be, and need to be, about your life purpose, your niche and mission, two great next steps would be to get a personal reading with an INTUITIVE who is an expert on life purpose and right livelihood, and/or get more intuitive TRAINING so you can perceive divine messages directly from your Source. I believe we are ALL intuitive. Sometimes it helps though, when we are immersed in our own emotional stuff, to get guidance, or to clear the static.

So let’s say you have enough clarity. Getting in gear, actually taking the right actions in the right order, in the right way and at the right time…

For this part of the process, you need a plan of action and manageable small steps that will move you toward your Big Dream.

In the Espritpreneurs program, we use a process called D-G-A: Dreams… Goals.. Action!

Don’t be afraid to have a really BIG Big Dream. This is your mission on Planet Earth. If you could be, do and have anything and everything you desire, if you could make the BIGGEST IMPACT you could imagine, what would that be?

Then focus in on 3 goals for this month, and concrete action steps you can take today / this week.

By clearly understanding your gifts, your passions, your Big Dream, then focusing every day on specific steps that will move you closer to your Dream Life, you will steadily and joyfully get there!

SECRET #5 – Get the RIGHT support

Can you identify and reprogram your limiting beliefs, get clear and in gear on your own? Possibly. However, having a supportive, successful, accessible, encouraging, knowledgeable COACH and COMMUNITY can help you achieve success much more quickly.

Seven Signs That Someone Is A Member Of Your Soul GroupMulti-millionaire coach Jack Canfield (best-selling author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series and many others) has said, “Everyone needs an accountability partner.”

Be selective, though, about with whom you work, because there are so many choices nowadays. Many people go a little crazy signing up for too many programs that just have a slick sales page or pitch. (I call this Bright Shiny Program Syndrome.) Many of my clients and students had already invested (sometimes they feel they wasted) thousands or tens of thousands of dollars on coaching, conferences and other programs that promised them the world, but didn’t deliver.

Tips: Look for a coach/healer/intuitive/mentor who is personally successful. Who inspires you. Who serves from the heart and works intuitively and energetically, so it’s not just head-based fluff but goes deep. Choose a coach who is accessible and responsive, not one who hides behind gatekeepers and “assistant coaches.” And Google them before investing any money to make sure they have positive reviews.

Connect too with a community (come-Unity!) of like-minded, conscious, heart-centered people who GET YOU and CELEBRATE YOU, who hold the vision for your success, who raise you up every step of the way. This will synergistically help you stay on track and en-JOY your journey much more too.

So go ahead, engage and enhance all 5 of these energetic secrets:
1-Self-Love
2-Clearing & Aligning Your Energy Field
3-Reprogramming Your Beliefs (subconsciously as well as consciously)
4-Get Clear and In Gear, and
5-Get the Right Support = Coach + Come-Unity!

And get ready to leap into YOUR Dream Life of Abundance!

10 Compelling Reasons Why Gratitude Makes a Difference

Gratitude is one of the most powerful ways to create happiness for yourself and others. Yet we take so much for granted and often forget to express gratitude for the blessings we already have, focusing instead on what we don’t have or what we’d like to have sometime in the future.

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”
― Eckhart Tolle,  A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose

When you consciously cultivate gratitude in your life you are opening the doors to receiving the infinite gifts of the universe and encouraging others to do the same.

What is Gratitude?

Gratitude is an energy, a feeling, an attitude and an emotion.

There are 4 states of gratitude:

  1. Loving gratitude – genuine heartfelt appreciation.
  2. Polite Gratitude – expression without feeling.
  3. No gratitude – lack of recognition of a reason for gratitude.
  4. Ingratitude – when you are ungrateful for what you have.

The only state of gratitude that has the power to make a positive difference in your life is number 1 – loving gratitude.

Why Gratitude Makes a Difference

Here are 10 reasons why gratitude can make a difference in your life and the lives of others.

  1. Gratitude powers the Universal Cycle of Abundance.
    Giving and receiving comprise the universal cycle of abundance. If you receive without feeling gratitude, you break the cycle and close the door to receiving abundance.
  2. Gratitude raises your vibrational frequency.
    Your vibrational frequency determines what you create in your life. When you have a high vibrational frequency, you create positive outcomes. When you have a low vibrational frequency you create negative outcomes.
  3. Gratitude attracts more giving.
    When you are genuinely grateful for receiving a gift, it acts as a catalyst for more giving. If you aren’t grateful for what you’ve received you are unlikely to get more. This applies to gifts from people and from the universe.
  4. Gratitude makes you nice to be around.
    Ungrateful people tend to be complainers with a victim mentality and a low vibrational frequency. Positive people don’t resonate with them. They attract other complainers who can share their perceived misfortunes.
  5. Gratitude is an expression of abundance consciousness.
    You can’t manifest abundance if you don’t feel abundant and gratitude is an expression of abundance because it reinforces your acknowledgement of the abundance you have.
  6. Gratitude is a state of appreciation and appreciation also means ‘increase in value’.
    When you appreciate the resources you have now, you’ll find that they will last longer, go further and do much more for you.
  7. Gratitude brings joy to others.
    When you express heartfelt gratitude to someone, you transmit love energy from your heart chakra which makes the person receiving it feel great. They transmit their positive energy back to you to increase your good feelings and so you’re actively expanding the energy of love in the universe.
  8. Gratitude anchors you in the present moment. 
    Being grateful in the present moment is the key to happiness because you are appreciating what you have NOW, rather than wishing for something you had in the past or hope for in the future.
  9. Gratitude keeps you positive.
    Being grateful for all of life’s experiences, even those that may at first seem negative will enable you to keep a positive attitude even when things are tough. Everything happens for a good reason and when we accept situations rather than resist them we discover the hidden blessings.
  10. Gratitude brings magic into your life.
    When you slow down, raise your awareness and consciously look for things to be grateful for you’ll discover a world filled with magic and miracles and realize how lucky you are!

3 Ways to Show Gratitude

1.     Thoughts

If you want to express gratitude to a person you don’t have to be in their presence to do it.

Thoughts are energy and just thinking grateful thoughts will transmit the energy of loving gratitude to your target.

Give thankful thoughts to the Universe/Source/Spirit/Divine when things happen or come to you.

2.   Words

Say a heartfelt thank you to express your gratitude whenever someone does something nice or helpful for you.

Thank them in person, call them on the phone, send them an email, post a thank you on their Facebook page – there are multiple ways you can express your gratitude in words.

Say a prayer of gratitude to the Universe/Source/Spirit/Divine for whatever you’re thankful for.

3.   Deeds

Express your gratitude in action.

  • Return a favor.
  • Give someone a referral.
  • Pay it forward by doing a good deed for someone else.
  • Give them a hug.
  • Give a gift – a bunch of flowers, a box of chocolates or something you know they’ll love.
  • Give money – yes, paying someone is an expression of appreciation, even if it’s for something as mundane as a utility bill!

Conclusion

Gratitude is your direct route to love, joy, peace and abundance and you’ll help others to experience it too when they receive your gratitude. The more you feel grateful for everything you have now, the more you’ll feel joyful and at peace, you’ll attract abundance and LOVE your life.

Lakshmi Mantra For Abundance

Lakshmi is the Hindu Deity that brings blessings of abundance, success and beauty into our lives on the material and spiritual realms.  I chant the following mantra  – Om Shreem Mahalakshmiyei Namaha, for at least 5 minutes to align myself with Lakshmi’s flowing and abundant energy at least one a week. The chant, Om Shreem Mahalakshmiyei Namaha is a blessing mantra for abundance and prosperity in the physical and spiritual worlds.

Symbols Related To Lakshmi 

  • Lakshmi – Her name is derived from the Sanskrit work “Laksa” which means goal or aim.
  • Gold Coins – The gold coins that flow from her hands are a symbol of the wealth that comes to those who worship her.
  • Lotus in Full Bloom – She is often either sitting or standing within a lotus in full bloom. In her hand is a lotus bud. The lotus represents purity, beauty and fertility.
  •  Two Elephants – The elephants that are next to her are spraying water. The flowing water represents an effortless flow of blessings.
  • Four Hands – Lakshmi has four hands. The each have a represent the four ends of our physical existence. Kama (desires), Aretha (abundance), Dharma (righteousness, morals and good ethical practices), and Moksha (freedom from the cycle of life and death).

I recommend listening to this mantra by Deva Premal, any time you feel stagnant and aren’t feeling the flow of abundance, success or physically in sync with your body. On a side note, abundance and success may also be applied to career, health and our personal relationships.

Blessings and Light,

9 Questions To Ask Yourself to Create Your Dream Life (and An Amazing Vision Board)

Video Source: Chakraboosters Youtube (click to subscribe to Channel)

Author’s Note: The best way I know to create your dream life is to start with a great blueprint — a Vision Board of what you deeply desire in all areas of your life (it’s brought me my home, my soulmate, my album, my book and much more!). I will be teaching my first online Vision Board Workshop in the first part of April. See the bottom of this article for more details.

This is Video is Part 2 of my series How To Create An Amazing Vision Board, so if you haven’t yet read the first post and watched the first video, go ahead and do that here now.

In the last video, you learned about creating your Vision Board using the powerful feng shui bagua, or areas, as a template. Plus, you started brainstorming about what matters to you in every area of your life. It’s a big undertaking to contemplate your whole life, so way to go!

The great thing about using the Feng Shui bagua is it motivates you to create a balanced vision of your life and to ask yourself the essential questions you need to ask to open up greater possibilities.

9 Essential Questions You Must Ask Yourself to Create a Vision Board of Your Ideal Life:

Wealth & Philanthropy  – What is wealth to you and how do you want to give back?

Fame & Recognition – What do you most want to be recognized for?

Love and Marriage – What do you want in your romantic relationship?

Children & Creativity – How do you want to cultivate your playful child self, or celebrate the kids in your life (or the kids you want to have)?

Travel & Benefactors – Where do you want to go in the world and whom do you look to for help and inspiration in any area of your life?

Career & Life Path – What feels purposeful to you and allows you to cultivate and use your unique skills?

Knowledge & Wisdom – In what areas and ways do you most want to grow and how do you want to do it — school, extra-curricular classes, meditation, etc.?

Family & Friends – How do you envision your ideal relationship with your family and friends?

Health & Home – What do you want your health and home to be like?

Once you’ve explored your desires in all these areas, it’s time to collect your images; ones that capture and communicate your deepest desires and put them on your board in a creative and inspiring way.

Subscribe to Vicki Howie’s Youtube Channel here and get access to over 180 free transformational videos.

Over the next few weeks, I’ll go over the “10 Tips To Create An Amazing Vision Board.”

This week, we’ll begin with the first three:

Tip #1 – Be Playful – listen to your intuition and don’t overthink. Just do what feels good so you can stay connected to your passionate self and create a Vision Board – and life – you love.

Tip #2 – Make sure any words you use are both positive and in the present tense.  Something like “I will lose weight” becomes “I am in great shape.”

Tip #3 – Use more imagery and less words. Not only are pictures worth a thousand words, but they also speak to your creative right brain and your subconscious mind. Images communicate with the part of you that initiates manifestation.

Keep gathering images and/or begin playing with how you want to lay them out on your board. Next week, we’ll go over more tips for creating an amazing, soulful, vision board.

Let the visioning begin and may you create the life of your dreams!

NOTE: On April 1, I will host my first ever Online Vision Board Process, which you can take from anywhere in the world! The normal price for this 4-Part LIVE Series is $247, but you can attend for FREE if you register for Rikka Zimmerman’s Money Mastery Course (that Ross and I are taking!).

Are You a Potential Spiritual Teacher?

buddha

 

The following is an extract from Discover Your Soul Template, by Marcus T Anthony

If you want to go the whole hog and set yourself up in business as a spiritual teacher or counselor, then there are some important things to consider.

First, you have to ask yourself why you want to do it. Clarify your intention by listening to what your ego is saying. Chances are the ego will go along for the power trip and the attention. That does not mean, however, that you are not suitable for the calling. All human beings and all spiritual teachers have an ego. Your job is to keep an eye on that part of yourself so that it does not dominate your work. Above all, listen to the voice of Spirit. It will guide you. It will tell you if your ego is starting to party hard, and will often let you know whether you are ready or not, and whether to stop, go, or wait.

Regardless of all other considerations, a spiritual teacher is called upon to serve Spirit. If you are not doing that, if you have no intention to do that, you are not a spiritual teacher, even if you call yourself one. You are a spiritual fraudster.

At a very practical level, you have to decide what it is you are selling. This may not seem very spiritual, but actually there is nothing unspiri­tual about selling or making money. Remember, in the end it is all an exchange of energy.

I highly recommend that you begin part-time. I have met more than a few naïve wannabe teachers who think the cosmos will reward them for the generous act of offering their grand wisdom to humanity. That’s not how it works. You have to honor the language and the realities of the market place. You have to offer a product that has some kind of business worthiness. Someone out there is going to have to want to buy what you are selling. And then you have to let people know about it.

Another approach is to make your teaching into a pastime, rather than a money-making venture. You might see it as a chance to share your wisdom with humanity. This is a perfectly noble ambition. One point to keep in mind, however, is that people often do not value what they are given for free. Scientific studies have confirmed this. When people are charged more for a service, they tend to report more positively about it, and when it is cheap, they tend to dis it. If you write a book, print off a thousand copies, and give them away on the street, you can bet a lot of people will not value it. If you charge market prices, only people who really want it will buy it. If you overcharge people, they will think you are a crook. There is nothing wrong with doing things for no financial reward. However, just be mindful that your desire to take this approach is not undermined by a belief that money is bad, that you are not worth anything, or that abundance is just too hard to create.

Jessica, the woman who was the original inspiration for my theory of Integrated Intelligence, charged hefty fees. She earned about five times more per hour than I did at the time, and I was an education professional with a university degree (she had no degree). But she was so brilliant that she had no trouble attracting clients. She was also very generous. One time I had a one-on-one session with her and at the end she laughed playfully like a little girl and said that Spirit had told her to give me the session for free. And so she did.

As I mentioned in an earlier chapter, every time you step forward out of your comfort zone in an act of creativity, it will draw out the resisting beliefs and energies from your psyche. As a Sage you will need to work on your consciousness, as well as deal with the day-to-day running of your business. This takes time and discipline. Don’t overestimate how quickly you can set things up, because it usually takes longer than you think. Creating unrealistic expectations places unnecessary stress on yourself.

Money pushes buttons too. If you put yourself under financial pressure, you may, ironically, cut yourself off from Spirit. Think about it. You open your little spiritual center and nobody comes. Suddenly you can’t pay the rent, and you are asking all sorts of ques­tions of Spirit, and demanding some answers. The ego will tend to get scared and angry and then go into blame and judgment. Fear takes you away from presence and away from Integrated Intelligence and the wisdom of the Spirit. This situation can turn into a self-perpetuating cycle of poverty and poverty consciousness. You go into business believing that the cosmos owes you a living. You have a bit of a hard time, and suddenly the negative beliefs within the psyche come forward, and before you know it you are broke, bitter, and screaming, “I told you so!”

This is precisely what happens to a lot of wannabe spiritual teachers. Mostly, we overestimate our level of spiritual development and our faith in the cosmos. Nothing will bring out doubt and fear faster than the rent notice when you haven’t got a penny to your name.

Loki

Remember the concept of being a spiritual fraud? I call it fraud­ing, when you believe you have gained a level of spiritual develop­ment that you have not. Frauding involves a rejection of certain parts of your psyche that you are not willing to look at, and this usually means that there is some personal pain that you are avoid­ing. My ego fall at the country retreat, which I mentioned above (not included in this extract), is a classic example. My ego fall came early, as the lie was exposed by perceptive people. In day-to-day life (as opposed to doing spiritual work), a fall also inevitably comes when we fraud. It may just take longer to happen.

An awareness of the trickster and its tendency to fraud, is crucial for your business and for the manifestation of your bliss in general. When your estimation of your attainment exceeds the reality, it cre­ates a metaphysical wake. A critical instability emerges when the delusion becomes too great. Even as you think you are putting forward positive energy into the world, your psyche will be working against you and against your bliss. Once a certain level of delusion is reached, you have to invest more and more energy in maintaining the charade. Inevitably, the whole thing comes crashing down like a house of cards.

Everyone frauds from time to time, because everyone has an ego. It’s just a question of spotting the lies as they pop up, and gently and lovingly correcting them. When you are frauding, Spirit will send you signals. We have to be on the lookout for the signs. Within my own psyche, I have always gotten a particular symbol in my dreams and meditations at such times: Mickey Mouse! To say that some­thing is “Mickey Mouse” is to imply that it is false or simply of poor quality.

For you the symbol you are given or the way Spirit lets you know you are going into delusion will most likely be different. Your life experience is different from mine, and the symbols within your psyche are particular to you. You have to learn that language.

It is also important to remember that, though the Sage is always a teacher of Spirit, she does not necessarily have to become a spiritual teacher. As long as you are living your bliss and in presence you will be serving Spirit. You will be part of the light, pushing holes through the darkness. I trust that this book has shown you that this is not as easy as some popular versions of spiritual development make it out to be.

Keep in mind though, that beyond the price you pay, the reward is the joyful discovery of your soul, and the knowledge that your time here on earth has been of service to all humanity.
