Higher Idea #3 Loving Life No Matter What

Since I coach others on how to love their life no matter what, I thought I would share a bit about my journey.  Ok, take a deep breath. Over the past 6 months, I have been in transition or as my friend Steve says, I have plateaued which means I am getting ready to skyrocket. What do I mean by transition? Well, I have no home and I have no vehicle. Why, you may ask?  I believe my Higher Self is preparing me for something, however; living out of a suitcase and being a gypsy was not what I consciously planned.  At first, my ego was angry and thrashed about at the idea of letting go of my condo, putting my things in storage and living at my mom’s at the age of 46.

I have come to trust my Higher Self so instead of listening to the fearful mind of my ego and being in resistance or attempting to force change because I do not like what is showing up right in front of me, I now recognize one of the most powerful life lessons, the law of detachment.  Life is always asking us to not become attached to things, ideas, or people as when we are, we will always experience emotional, mental and physical detachment or the cutting of the cord, so to speak. This is why we grieve for our losses or what we perceive we’ve lost. When all detachment really is, is a process of waking up to our own truth ~ The truth that nothing outside of ourselves can define us.

Years ago, I thought that having things would define me, make me happy or give me a level of security, which I now find the idea rather amusing. The reason is, in having or living in the nothingness I feel more secure about who I AM now than I ever have before. I can be in the nothingness, in the unknown and yet deeply know that I am supported, connected and unconditionally loved by the universe.  I do not need anything outside of myself to make me whole, happy and loving for all this lives inside of me. Letting go of the need to have things because they define me is truly empowering.

My theme for 2011 is love and luxury. For love is the only thing that is real and it is a luxury to be on this planet at this time. Now, I absolutely LOVE the physical world (especially food and beautiful clothes… oh and shoes..oh and …lol!) and ALL we have collectively created.  We are meant to experience ALL THAT IS and yet remain detached in loving gratitude.  I know am here to experience all that is beautiful and luxurious and at the same time stay in the moment as life can shift in a heartbeat. I have learned to release my idea of what is right and wrong. Instead I choose to see the brilliance of divine manifestation as it unfolds before me and how each moment is guiding me to my ultimate destiny.

During this experience I have been given an incredible gift of recognizing brilliance in women and the unconditional giving of the feminine. My mom has been my greatest supporter, always there without judgement. During my many transitions, five Goddess girlfriends, Michelle, Krista, Katharina, Janice and Laura have generously and without hesitation, nurtured me either by offering their homes, or a room, shared their food, their vehicles and massive amounts of support as I spiral up on my journey. They are truly an example of the compassion and unconditional love that lives in the hearts of divinely brilliant women.  I am forever grateful.

I do look forward to the day my Higher Self says, “Here is your home, a sanctuary you can call your own to enjoy all things beautiful.”  For now, as Laura lovingly reminds me, my home is where my heart is.

Love Your Life No Matter What as Brilliance is Who You Are On the Inside

And Not What You Have on the Outside.

Share with me what you are choosing to let go of  in faith. Do you trust that your Higher Self has a bigger plan for you?

Higher Idea #2 – Get Real With Where You Are

Our ego is the one that stops us from seeking newness.
It is our spirit that says yes to viewing life from a different perspective.

In order to spiral up in life and tune into your destiny, it’s important to get real with where you are right now. Get real with where you are financially, in your relationships, environment, health, spirituality, family and career. This means defining for yourself what you want, what you really need and what you really desire. In order to know where you want to go in life, you first need to know where you are.

If you want to experience the freedom to be who you are, you will need to create your personal foundation. I highly recommend you build your foundation on truth. The energy of truth must go deep if you want your life to rise up. If your foundation is built on shaky ground filled with fear, deception and doubt, your life will come tumbling down like a deck of cards. No matter what you have done or not done, start now and get real with what is. Let today be your starting point.

Today’s Higher Idea: Take a moment and write what you are ready to get real with. Write! Write! Write! Do not edit your thoughts. Allow for full expression and face the truth. Putting your mind on paper will set you free.  I would love for you to share one thing your ready to get real with.

Higher Idea #1 – Give Your Self the Gift of Time

Do you believe time is speeding up or slowing down?  How often do you say to your friends or family, I don’t have time?

What if you discovered that you have the power to expand or contract time? Yes, your mind is very powerful and it is your thoughts and feelings that create your experiences.

Now, you may juggling the many responsibilities of being a parent or being in relationship or you may be a business owner with a very large “To-Do list”. I get it!

Our every day stresses and  responsibilities can keep us trapped in the ‘busyness’ of life.  I know there are only 24 hours in a day and maybe your To Do list is a mile long.

What if, the next time you catch yourself saying, “I am too busy” or “I don’t have time.” you stop everything you are doing? Just stop! Take a moment to breathe and then ask yourself the question, “If I am the creator of my routine when did I allow my routine to take over my life?” Now breathe into the word busy and the phrase, I don’t have time. Expand your awareness and feel into these words. Do you feel constricted or do you feel expansion? The word busy carries the vibration of chaos and stress especially if you leave things to the last minute.

With all this busyness how can you have time to nurture your mind, body and spirit?  Here is the answer. Only you can create time for yourself.  If you are caught up in the vibration of busyness you may have forgotten that you are the one who created your busy schedule in the first place. Your busyness is a learned behaviour.

For some reason we have been taught to wear busyness like a badge of honour believing that if we are not busy doing, doing, doing, everything will fall a part. We have also come to believe that there is not enough time in the day. We have created restriction within our own mind.

The truth is, you can create your day to be exactly what you want it to be. Begin to view time from a higher perspective. Begin to see and know that time is fluid, it is not linear. Time constricts when your thinking is constricted. Time expands when you feel expansion of your spirit.

Fifteen years ago I stopped wearing a watch. Why? Because as long as I was time bound I found it more challenging to live in the present moment. The more I made the choice to live in the moment the more I experienced time expanding. I now live on divine time (listen to my inner clock) and know that I am always successful engaged in the right activity and there is plenty of time for everything.

Today’s Higher Idea: Since you are the creator of your reality, say goodbye to your ‘too busy’ self. You are now releasing chaos from your life. From this moment forward begin by substituting the word ‘busy’ with ‘creative’ or ‘active’ or ‘eventful’.  You can say, “I have had a creative day”, or “I had a very eventful day.” I also recommend you replace the phrase, I don’t have time, with I have plenty of time for everything.

Take a deep breath in…and release…Ahhh! I feel your life expanding already. Now you have plenty of time to listen to what makes your heart sing.
