It is a NEW year! A fresh 365 days ahead for you to be creative, to love more, to let go of all things that no longer serve you and build a new beginning. Possibilities are endless and the choices are all yours. Close your eyes ~ take a deep breath ~ visualize all the opportunities that wait in front of you.
The “New Year's resolution” is always a positive way to kick off the year. The start of every year we are so zealous and then eventually we fizzle out. Let 2017 be different than years past. Be excited for awaits you. Know that the changes you make will not only affect your own life but will be a positive reflection to those around you. Be more conscious of the everyday life. Enjoy every single moment because there is nothing worse then waking up one day and looking in the mirror with regret.
Our society pushes us and pushes us to become something that we may not really want to be. With every passing year we allow opportunities to drift by us because we think, “there's always tomorrow”. What if tomorrow never comes? Think deeply, are you willing to deny yourself the privilege of trying something that your Soul has craved to endure because you are content living in the safety net of routine? Give permission for your Soul to fulfill its quest.
We have programmed ourselves to live on automatic pilot becoming unaware of everything around us. Taking for granted the simple things in life… from the beauty of flowers, to a sunrise, sunset or simply enjoying the laughter of a small child. Let's start 2017 by observing and give your full attention to those around you. Watch how your relationships improve when you become more present. When you observe what surrounds you, you will see what once was a dream, will turn into an opportunity and will finally develop into reality. Your life is meant to be lived to the fullest. It is time to raise the ante! Stop the craziness, the chaos and start living to enjoy, to appreciate all that is around you. I promise, what you experience will heighten your Soul, bringing abundance in all areas of your life.
When you are open to receive, you are showing God (Divine Source) that you are ready to answer the knocks on the door and by doing that you are elevating your Soul’s vibration. When we are conscious of our surroundings and give gratitude to all that is, we actually change the vibration of the Earth. Imagine how we can transform our world with positive thoughts and fulfilling your goals. You can bring it to a whole other level when you add understanding, a layer of love and sprinkle in some forgivingness. What a difference this NEW year can bring with just conscious decisions.
God (Divine Source) wants us to obtain the ability to reach beyond the scope of ourselves. Remove the blockages that inhibit you from moving forward and begin to shine your Light to everyone around you. Let this NEW year, be a year for YOU! This journey is yours… Claim it! Let no one stand in your way. Having awareness will help you get back on track when you sway away. It’s full steam ahead! God (Divine Source) is so generous that each year He gives you a clean slate. So, what are you waiting for?! Go for it!

Understanding...To be understanding is not simply comprehending what another person is saying. It is being sympathetic and aware of other people's feelings. It incorporates tolerance and forgiveness not just for others but for self as well. You may find yourself saying, "I understand", in conversations. But do you? Or are you just moving the conversation along? Do you fully engage yourself when listening to another? It is easy to yes to someone and nod your head... But to fully understand someone you must first be present in the moment.
Today's world of high technology has kept many in a sleep state. Observing more to what is on our cell phones, rather than who we are with at the present moment. Talking through text, messaging and emails all lead to isolation. Numbing us to actually feeling and experiencing true Soul to Soul connection. You can't acquire, a Soul connection through a text. There is nothing more important than the actual voice or touch of another. The human interaction is something that our Souls came here to learn.
A baby is comforted in hearing his mother's heart beat and her voice. When a baby cries and feels a loving touch, it stops crying. Why? Because it's real and the baby recognizes the mother's Soul. As we get so involved in everyday life, we forget that there are actual people on the other end of the screen. It is easy to hide behind it rather then engage in conversation with a live person. Miscommunication occurs and hurt builds up that ultimately leads to bad knee jerk reactions, ending many beautiful relationships. Is it really worth it? Technology is good to some extent but not for the sake of losing people you love. There needs to be balance. Our Soul craves the Human touch... a Human voice!
Soul's need to feel other Souls. We are all connected, each of us linked together, when we begin to detach from one another the compassion and love is lost, desensitizing situations and then isolating not just ourselves but those around us. We are Souls living this Human experience. In order for the world to keep evolving, change must occur. Technology will always advance, however, we must remember that we can not grow Spiritually if we are not true to our feelings. How else will you reach your True Authentic self?
We are here to remember where we came from. We need to reconnect to our origin. The way of feeling, expressing who we are, touching other Souls are all ways back to our true home. Interaction with each other is our Soul's awareness of a Higher source. The empathy that is given to others is an understanding of who we are as Souls. Balance is key to move along with technology but keeping the physical and more soulful connection will bring you to another level of existence.
Understanding is living without judgement towards others. Looking past the human body straight into their Soul. Seeing the beauty of their essence. Looking beyond their mask and truly capturing what their Soul desires at that moment. It is a way to connect on a deeper level and recognize the Soul that is in front of you. By interacting with other Souls, we learn and grow from that experience.
Make each existence in your life precious and allow your Soul to have an amazing Human experience. Do not deny yourself the gift of the Human touch.

You are a clear channel of Divine Light. We are all given the gifts of universal knowledge, healing, mediumship and psychic abilities. I will refer to this as our Gift Box. However, only a few choose to use these gifts in their purest state with the highest of intentions to assist others. It is a very empowering feeling to be able to utilize these gifts. But then again, we are born into this Earth School to find our empowerment. That is not to say, that one should feel that they are better than anyone else just because they know how to use their gifts. But we are certainly asked to step into our own power and not rely on others for happiness, fulfillment or love. We are asked to love ourselves to the point that we can give and accept love freely.
When each of us are born, God (Divine Source) places this beautiful Gift Box within our Soul. When we are babies, we are still at a pure place with no doubts or fears. That is why you may see babies laughing at nothing or smiling for no reason, even when they are sleeping. Why? Because that Gift Box is ready to be used the moment we arrive. As we get older and we become influenced by family, teachers and religious beliefs, we take that Gift box and place it in the corner for safe keeping. Unfortunately, over time we forget where we had placed that box, some may even forget they had a box. That's when we start looking to others for answers. In life's challenging moments we may look to a psychic for guidance. Many may get so frantic because of the obstacles in front of them that they become "Psychic Junkies". Searching for answers and listening to others' interpretation of what they see for them, forgetting that many psychics will see a certain outcome but with free will, anything can change. It becomes a cyclone and one will begin to loose their way, their faith and eventually they will find themselves facing a rut.
God wants you to trust YOU! He wants you to trust HIM and have FAITH. Our Gift Box is like gardening tools, you have to use certain tools to mix the earth, plant the seeds, nurture the garden and then you see the miracle of beautiful flowers. Your Gift Box has all the tools you need to soothe your Soul, create an amazing future, heal yourself through difficult times and help you rise above any situation. What prevents you from tapping into that box? Fear and doubt...
The BEST Psychics, Mediums and Healers are those who have a clear and direct connection with God (Divine Source). They realize that they are just the vessel that God uses to heal and communicate. You can master the Gifts too... by trusting and releasing doubt and fear. Through meditation you can obtain a connection with God (Divine Source) and by journaling what you hear, see or feel, you will begin to heal in ways you never imagined. There are amazing Psychics, Mediums and Healers out there that will share their gifts with you. Many are also incredible teachers who will help you remember where you placed your Gift Box and how to open each gift inside. Love yourself enough to open that box....The answers are all inside YOU!

There are many who are searching for something spectacular, an awakening that will take them down a path of enlightenment. Some search and search for this bolt of knowledge to be sent to them. Many look towards others for this understanding, quenching for the euphoric feeling of existence. Adjusting who they are, to be what others want them to be. Some may create a new persona to cover past pains and mask their hurts and disappoints in order to stay in a place in-which they feel safe. Spirituality is not something that you can search. It all resonate within you. Reach into the depths of your own Soul to seek the answers. You have been gifted with inner Universal Knowledge. However, many are still sleepwalking and can not hear the whispers of their Soul. Listening to other spiritual speakers and reading spiritual books will only aide in gaining consciousness and will stir up what has been laying dormant.
Spirituality is not just understanding who God (Universe) is or what Metaphysical theories are, but rather learning and capturing your own essence. That is where it all begins. Knowing that we are "Love" and we are "One" is incredibly important but to receive that understanding and acceptance, you have to LOVE YOU. It is an awareness of who YOU are. Experiencing happiness, pain, sorrow, frustration, etc. encompasses every part of your existence... that is why we are here on Earth. We are here to discover who we are and have acceptance and love for ourselves so we can illuminate that energy of LOVE to everyone around us. Attaining true forgiveness for self and others will assist in removing the mask that hides your True Authentic Self.
Discovering that special place prepares you to assist others. By simply "Holding Space" for someone who is in turmoil, gives them the opportunity to release "negative" energy that is holding them back at that particular moment. There is no greater gift that you can give someone, than the gift that gives them freedom to just BE with no judgement attached to it. We need to allow those in our life to vent things out in order for them to gain a different perception of a situation. It doesn't mean that as the listener, you have to absorb that negativity. When you are in a grounded loving place within your Soul, you are able to withstand those who are struggling in negativity. You will be able to handle life situations better because you see clearly. When you "HOLD SPACE" for them, surround them with love, light and peace. Be the Spiritual being you are meant to be. We are a reflection of each other. Your reaction to others is an awareness in you. By giving someone this sacred space, you are not only honoring their Soul but you are honoring your True Authentic Self.
We are all Divine Beings created with Love. It is God's (Universe's) desire for us to remember that we originated from Love. Spirituality is becoming more aware of you by doing the inner work. The more work you accomplish the easier it is to love you. The rest will follow.
Until Next Time... Keep Smilin'!

There comes a time when you need to sit back and reflect on your life. Reviewing your past and learning from each twist and turn that brought you to this moment in time. The space that you are in at this exact moment is pulling you straight to where you need to be emotionally, physically and spiritually. Any other path that you might have taken would not make you who you are today. Everything was planned before it even happen. It was all designed for your Spiritual growth and that growth will improve our world. Your life is so beautifully orchestrated. But what does this all mean? How does this impact you personally and globally? Each situation in your life has brought you to this present time and is moving you forward on your journey leading you in a direction of higher ascension, bringing you closer to your true authentic self. Our Souls were brought here to not only learn but to see how well we will interact with each other. Your Spiritual growth has a ripple effect. It will assist in shining Light into the darkness of our world. Your ascension, will bring love and compassion to those that are misunderstood. Your kindness will inspire others to do the same. Do you see how important your Soul's growth is and how significant you are?
The ascension that I am referring to is that deep divine connection between you and your Maker. Your Soul wanted to learn certain things, so He (your Maker) sent each Soul in your life to teach you. Think about that for just a minute. Now, give thanks for every person in your life that made you feel insignificant and for every individual that made you doubt yourself. It is because of those moments that you are now prepared to leap into your future and create your opus. Rise above the chaos that surrounds you. Seize each second that you have alone and connect with your Maker and give thanks for the next step in your life. Because it is waiting for you.
Our world is in a state of transformation. Which means that all the negative energy has to rise to the top in order for it to be eliminated. We must go through the darkness to acquire light. An amazing Energy Shift will occur, when we Shift our way of thinking and view occurrences as opportunities for change. Just as we repeat the same lessons when we don't learn them first time around, so does our planet. If we don't learn to unite, our world will continue to divide.
It is easy to fall into the sea of negativity but you do not have to drown. When you find yourself feeling anxious, angry or fearful, pray. Close your eyes and ask where you can make a difference. People will be placed in your life to assist you on your path which, in turn, will ultimately help you bring peace to others. Your Soul asked to be here in a time when our world is being tested. You are part of the BIG plan. Acknowledge your existence. Move forward with love and compassion in your heart. Look beyond the judgement or hatred. It becomes a much better world when you view others as Souls in need, instead of humans with an agenda. We are all in this together and YOU are part of the Soulution.
