In learning to embrace the new, I let go of all that no longer serves me.
As you grow and develop from the experiences you have in life, both from your relationships as well as releasing old habitual behaviours, you enter a period of transition, which can feel quite challenging as you calibrate to this new energy. You may find yourself releasing people and situations that do not embrace your growth, but rather confine and restrict you. When you want to expand your consciousness, it is inevitable that people will fall away from your inner circle as you make way to attract those who are transmitting at your higher frequency vibration.
Animate and inanimate objects both emit a vibrational energy and when you have raised yours sufficiently through a practice of the right thinking, the right diet and limiting your exposure to people who are either negative, judgemental or rigid in their view; you naturally gravitate to higher frequency people and situations. You find yourself questioning the relationships that you once had and realise that you no longer share the same views. This is perfectly okay, even in its discomfort because you have embraced this new energy. You love feeling this new high and anyone or anything that tries to bring you down, you effectively remove or shield yourself from it.
It is challenging to release old habits and relationships but life is fluid, forever expanding and in order to live fully in your present moment you must honour what it is that you feel. Regardless at how uncomfortable or scary it becomes, because the ego likes familiar, it likes safety and especially likes limited beliefs! High vibrational beings prefer to let go of limitations because in their world, there are none.
Just for today, look at your life and ask yourself the question, “What no longer serves me?” Be open to the responses that you get from your heart centre and have the courage to release anything in your life that tries to lower your frequency.
Have a high vibing weekend.

I allow love to open my heart and guide me through my everyday experiences
Wayne Dyer was famous for saying when you change the way you look at something what you look at changes and he is right. How do you view your everyday interactions and experiences? How do you react to negative experiences in your life? Do you view your world from a pessimistic attitude
of lack; of what you have as not being enough, or of not being the way you thought things would appear or occur in your life?
This is how we place limitations on the magnificence of who you are. You end up being closed to the endless possibilities of what life has to offer for you. This week I felt disappointed in an outcome that I really wanted and never got. I had to own my disappointment and take time to sift through the negativity to find the positive in the situation and I was only able to do that by changing my perspective as to how I viewed the circumstance. (Well a little glass of vino and a chat to a trusted friend and my son did help with the shift).
Whatever we focus our attention upon we literally give momentum too, and this will draw to you, by the influence of the law of attraction, more of what it is that you focus upon. If you view your experiences from a place of love; from a place of equanimity, your walk in your life would be less fractious and more rewarding.
Just for today, embrace loving all that is, that simply means love each experience you have without judgement but with an openness that in a dark moment you will always find light. I found light in my disappointment in that it opened the door to something much better than I thought was not possible. Look for and find the beauty in ALL of your experiences.
Have a loving weekend

It is in embracing the simplicity of life
I am able to truly know myself.
This morning, as I drove into work, I pondered as to what would be the theme for this Friday’s Word of the Week. I never know what I am moved to write until I actually sit and do it, so I allowed guidance to come through my oracle cards and was pleasantly surprised as to what moved me.
I usually pick three cards and use blue tack to stick them around my computer at work, so I can periodically connect with the energy and the messages they offer. The card that caused me to chuckle was the one entitled “Simplicity” from the Journey of Love Deck by Alana Fairchild because it summed up how I had shifted my perspective in the last few days.
My week had been filled with bouts of frustration, impatience and a few tantrums; yes I acted out this week to the point that I actually shut myself in my bedroom and only communicated with my children through the door, yet what recalibrated in me was most valuable.
I told myself every morning before I got out of bed, that I was no longer willing to entertain the constant mind chatter of things beyond my immediate control. I anchored myself to the present moment and focused upon the little daily actions that I do each day. I would revel in the how the water made my skin feel as I showered, I savoured my hot cup of coffee I lovingly made in the morning. I enjoyed watching the birds eating the seeds from the feeder on my Cherry Blossom tree and literally told myself that these are the moments that require my daily attention. It truly is the simple daily actions we do that determine the quality of our life.
When we move on auto pilot with our daily interactions with people and more importantly with ourselves, we end up wishing, yearning and wanting that which we don’t have, not realising that we have it all right now. It is the focusing upon the big things that we desire that take our attention away from the little things that make us who we are every day.
Just for today, bring your full attention to the simple daily actions that occur throughout your day. Let go of anything superfluous to what you are doing in that moment and give it your full attention. For when you let go of trying to control everything in your life, you become open to receive the wondrous energy of peace and connection both for yourself and for others.
May your weekend be filled with noticing the simplicity of what you do.

Learning to trust yourself is one of the greatest gifts that you could ever bestow. For you are declaring that you are the writer, the director and the star of your own movie called life. It is a declaration that you honor the power of who you are, a divine reflection of love and light to grace this planet. To say the above affirmation can be quite unnerving, because you are making a statement that you and only you are responsible for the thoughts, feelings and actions that occur in your world.
What does it mean to trust yourself? Well, in order to trust, you first have to get to know who you are? To become an observer of your actions and more importantly, your reaction to others in the world around you.
It is an act of mindfulness, to constantly become aware of your thoughts, what you say and what you do as you interact in your world. It means looking at yourself from a place of unconditional love, where you observe with kindness and compassion.
You lovingly create a habit where you choose to interact with others from a place of peace rather than angst. It is cultivating goodness in your heart for yourself and others by looking at the small things in your life that you can do differently to create a greater feeling of joy. Instead of reacting in the same old habitual way to others who may annoy you, think of reacting differently. Put yourself in someone else’s shoes. Are they feeling a lack of love in their life as the cause of them acting out?
Feeding the compassion in yourself, allows you to cultivate the seed of love that is innate to all, yet is normally obscured by the emotions of guilt, doubt, angst and worry.
When you observe the synergy between the heart and mind and you learn to operate from this unified space rather than the disconnection and sometimes opposition of the two, your walk becomes an act of being mindful and present for each step that you take.
Just for today, take a step towards trusting the Divine Light of who you are. A reflection of the essence of unconditional love that can only grow when you take time to love and nurture yourself.
Have a blessed weekend.
