The Power of Perception and Beliefs

Your thoughts and beliefs create your reality, and what you see in your physical environment confirms your beliefs. Do you understand this? YOU create what’s REAL, and then you think your beliefs are accurate because you SEE what you BELIEVE in front of you!

If you don’t like what you see or what you experience in your daily life, it’s not others who need to change – it’s YOU.

The reality someone swears up and down is real is real – to them. Another’s so-called reality has nothing to do with your own. Similarities depend on shared beliefs, but your overall experience of reality is yours alone. Every thought and every belief, whether you agree or not, is a choice. While our parents and elders gave us the building blocks of our beliefs, as you get older you tend to realize that you are free to choose what to believe. When you know this, you are free.

If you believe people are unkind, you will experience it daily. If you believe people are bad drivers, this will be your experience every time you get in your car. If you believe people are kind, strangers will undoubtedly go out of their way to help you. If you believe everything is always working out for you, you won’t be phased by any perceived setbacks because eyes will be focused on the silver lining.

So the saying that goes “I’ll believe it when I see it” is actually “I see it because I believe it”.

You can believe that the devil is real, or that a modern age demon Jesus is running rampant in society, while others who don’t hold these beliefs will remain untouched by these low vibrational worries. Sure, the devil exists, but only in the realities of those who believe he does. Do you think you have proof that the Devil is real? You might, but you made that up too. This is why you can argue both sides of a belief. If you focus on anything, you’ll find it.

This is why denial is so powerful. Our beliefs can keep us in denial over something that may be completely obvious to an outsider. It’s so easy to see other people’s hang ups because you don’t have their unique belief system or the investment in their story.

Perception is such a fun topic. The same event can happen to multiple people and their reactions will be completely different.

One person can internalize an event and believe they are a bad person because something happened to them. Another knows that everything is always working out for them even in the midst of chaos. This person knows that something better is coming about. Yet another can take the event personally and believe whatever occurred was done to deliberately harm them. One person can lose their cool in a crisis and freeze. Another loses their cool in a bout of angry outrage, and yet another calmly takes control!

What causes the different reactions? Differing realities based on different beliefs, different thought processes, and different life experiences. Every action and reaction are split second choices made based on your beliefs, habits, and experiences. Does a “common reality” actually exist? I believe that it does, but that most humans can’t see it. Most humans see a reality completely clouded by their beliefs.

Those who have begun to raise their vibration may more easily see how different beliefs lead to different reactions. The more in tune with spirit you are; the more in tune with your higher self you are, the more you know that reality is subjective and entirely based on the mindset of the perceiver. Once you understand that everyone is creating their own version of reality, the easier it is to co-exist with them!

This has a much deeper meaning than you may realize. You create your own reality – Every aspect of it. This means that you create your own versions of other people as well. The spouse that you think you know so well doesn’t really exist in the way you think he/she does. We are all learning and expanding consciously in every moment of every day. The only constant is change. If you think you know anyone, you don’t. What you do know is the version of them that exists in your mind. And their behaviour can change as easily as your thoughts do about them.

This is why it is so important to think kindly of others. Even the seemingly most ruthless of humans is an extension of Source. If you think anyone is apart from Source, you are holding them outside of the light and that can never be so.

Action Steps: Choose someone that you don’t like; someone that pushes your buttons whenever you think of them, and move them into the light in your mind.

Give them the benefit of the doubt. Focus on what you like about them. Forgive them for whatever transpired and let whatever happened in the past not move a moment further into the present moment. There is no sense bringing the past into the future. Decisions were made at the level of consciousness that was attained at that point in your perspective journeys, and none of that matters now. What matters now is letting go and moving on, and seeing the aspect of the Divine that is within them.

You don’t need to become friends with this person. There is no need to contact them, or to be in their presence. All you are doing in this exercise is seeing them as Source sees them: with love. See them with love, take a few deep breaths, and see anything that is not loving leave your mind and your body. Take as many breaths as it takes to feel the release and to know that all are worthy of love.

And now the fun really begins. When any unloving thoughts arise, remind yourself that everyone is an extension of Source energy and that you will see them with the eyes of Source: with love. Pay attention to your thoughts about this person but don’t be invested in the outcome. Choose better thoughts and let go. Then if you happen to see this person in the future, take note of how the interaction goes! If you are doing the work, your experience will change for the better. It is law!


You Create Your Own Reality

Today I understand this more than ever before.

After 4 months of telling myself yet another story, I had to admit that I created it myself. I created the beginning, the middle, the end, and all of the things in between. But I also admit that without this experience, I wouldn’t be sitting here with an entirely new set of beliefs about this reality I find myself in.

What was the story? It doesn’t matter. What matters is that I see it for what it is; a creation of my own making. What I see clearly now is that we are all in the process of creating stories, and all them are true. They’re true because we create them from our beliefs, which in turn prove to us that our beliefs are valid. And from our vantage point, there is nothing more true or valid than what it is we believe.

And no matter what you are experiencing, whether positive or negative, it is perfect. None of it is wrong. You are where you are for a reason, and that reason is because your soul wanted a specific experience. In every story we tell ourselves there is a lesson – and that lesson is – you get the essence of what you believe. Every. Time. You are who you say you are.

The only way out of a story is to tell it the way you want it.

We create our reality through the choices we make. We choose it all. We choose what to believe and what to disregard. We choose what we think, how we act and how we react to events that seem unrelated to us. But nothing that happens in our experience is actually out there. It’s within us, being projected outward to create the reality we see.

Not only do you choose to spend your physical time with people, but you choose to spend your mental time on people. Are those thoughts in love? We choose to be victimized and we choose to be the perpetrator. We choose to rescue and to be the victim; to save and be saved.

But if we want to save ourselves, which is the only thing that really moves us along, we’ve got to choose to follow our hearts; to connect with all that is. We’ve got to choose love. Everything we put out is returned to us with interest. If you act in an unloving way, you will be on the receiving end of something different yet similar indeed. You can get nothing other than that which you create.

Save yourself by following your heart. Lead by example. Live happily ever after while embracing the unknown with knowing that everything really and truly always works out for you – even when it doesn’t. Something not working out simply means that you’ve got something else to learn before you get what you think you want – or don’t get it for reasons that will become clear at a later time.

Today I can say that I embrace the uncertainty that lies ahead because I know that I always have choice. I have the ability to focus my attention in a way that pleases me or a way that displeases me, and I have had enough life experience to know that life goes a whole lot better when I choose pleasing, loving thoughts over anything of a lower vibration. If, in each moment, you do your best to act in kindness, in love, and in line with your heart’s desires, you will create the most incredible life for yourself here on Earth.

You create your own reality. It’s not an easy concept to grasp because the cause and effect relation is delayed here – for great reason. You chose it. And how do I know this to be true? Because you are here on Earth, and nothing happens without your choosing it first. With your higher self and your physical self leading the way, you are here, you are learning, and you are choosing your own adventure just as you planned.

Life unfolds in the most beautiful of ways. It’s never wrong because it’s never done. And it’s always perfect because you have a great force leading you in each and every moment: yourself. Our higher selves created us. We are them. They are us. They love us so unconditionally that we can do no wrong. Everything we do here on Earth is a choice, and with every choice we create our realities. And the reason it’s not easy is because we didn’t want it to be.

We wanted to learn. We wanted these experiences. We wanted to grow in tremendous ways. It doesn’t have to be hard, but the game is set up in a way that delves into a world of separation and duality before we can ever really know what true freedom and oneness is. If we wanted to play a game where we got everything we wanted immediately, we would be there. But we’re not. We’re here. And so the game goes on until we choose to leave. And yes, that’s a choice too. You wouldn’t be here if you didn’t want to be. Because we are here in this moment, we must have chosen it, or else it wouldn’t be.

Enjoy the journey. Follow your heart, and know that each and every moment is a choice. If you don’t like where you are outwardly, look within. Choose your thoughts and your focus wisely. Choose with love, kindness, and compassion, and know that where you are is perfect place to create who you will become. And lastly, know that you are never alone, not for even one fraction of a second because you’ve got your own back. Whether you believe it or not is another story 😉 <3


Where is Your Church?

When do you connect to the Central Sun/God/Source of all that is?

God is everywhere. In all things. In you, in those you love, and in those you would run from. We all come from the same Source, just like the Pleateans, the Sirians, the Lemurians, or the Arcturians… There is no separation because all of them are within us. They walk the planet with us, and within us. They share our DNA.

While I was walking to get a coffee this morning, I looked at each human on the way and saw Source within them. I was brought to tears. I was proud of them. I was proud of me. And I knew without a doubt that I was seeing through the eyes of Source. They are beautiful. The woman scolding her child was beautiful. The child following his bliss and crawling to the waves was beautiful. He knew he could do it. His mother was scared. I knew she could let him go and he would learn his limitations quickly and without danger. It was a perfect moment for a lesson that she wasn’t ready to let him have. And all of it was beautiful.

And as I sit with this gorgeous view of the ocean, I see the bodies of all shapes and sizes telling their stories. I see the confidence of an older man who has lived a glorious life. I can feel it as he walks by. I see the tired old man who walks cautiously to the water, unaware of the greatness within him. I see the self-conscious woman continuously readjusting her bathing suit. I see them all through the eyes of Source. What a beautiful sight.

And yet, there is no church above my head. There is no filter I must confess to who will talk to God on my behalf. It’s just me, at the beach, in full experience of the Divine within. In the past few weeks I have tossed aside my fears and fully grasped who I really am. I am unafraid that people will think I’m crazy or too “out-there”. I am ready to speak my truth, knowing that I will give others who are in a similar place on their journey the courage to do the same. My heart is glowing. My hands are vibrating in excitement, ecstatic to play their role in my spiritual coming out. They would cry tears of joy if they could.

I can feel the excitement of the non-physical beings that support me. My group of writers, my crystalline friends. It’s the prefect time and I’m in the perfect place, physically, spiritually, and mentally. When fear arises, a deep breath and the intention to fully connect is all that I need to ground me in my knowing once again. I feel the love of a God who knows me by name. Even though there are billions of beings, he knows my personal life path; my innate consciousness, and fully supports me in my unfolding.

So you see, I don’t need a church or a place of worship because I am the place. I take God with me everywhere I go. Our cells crave this connection, and when we’re feeling off, unwell, tired for no reason, sad, alone, scared, or fearful, etc, all we need is to take a moment to centre ourselves; a moment to breathe, to connect, to meditate. Some of you will need absolute quiet. Some of you will need to set a timer and breathe with the intention to open your heart and feel for your higher self. Those of you who resonate with everything I am saying will be able to sense when you have lost your connection to Source immediately, and you will simply hook back into the grid with a single intention; a single breath.

The energy on the Earth plane is greater than ever. Light Workers are answering the call to increase their vibration in greater numbers than ever before. Those of us who are already awakened are waking up some more. We are being guided to new truths. We are taking down our walls and we are incorporating new information quickly. The more you focus on raising your vibration, the quicker this will happen.

The answers are not outside of you. They come from within. Everything you need is already within you. It is in your heart. It is in your connection to the Divine. Meditate every day to raise your vibration, and then practice maintaining it in each moment of the day. When you feel your vibration drop, raise it again. Do whatever you need to do to keep your vibration high. Go for a run. Walk in nature. Make any childcare arrangements you need to make so that you have time throughout the day to yourself, to be alone in your energy. Go into a separate room to meditate if you can. Put your child’s favourite television show on and mediate beside them if you need to. Do whatever it takes.

You are always connected to God and all that is. It can never be otherwise. But you have the freewill to deny this connection and flow with the lower energy that is always around you as well. All energies are always floating around. All timelines are available to you. It is your vibration that allows your God connection and therefore your experience of any given timeline. For instance, if you continuously hold a low vibration, you will notice low vibrational events. You will complain a lot and you will play the victim card. Alternatively, if you are vibrating high, you will notice the blessings, the gifts, the perfections within each moment. The same event can happen and the low vibrating human will see the tragedy and believe that terrible things are happening to them. The high vibrating individual will see the blessings, the lessons, and the love and know that everything is working out in perfect order. They will know that whatever happens, happens for them.

As you learn from your environment and the information available, you will learn many new things that are incredibly valuable to your path, but it is within that the true answers lie. You will hear something new, and your heart will tell you whether to accept the knowledge or not. You have an innate knowing within you. And if contrast arises between something that is presented to you and the feeling in your heart, listen to your heart.

Your connection to God doesn’t need to be compartmentalized. I will take whatever connection I can get whenever I can get it. Close your eyes at the dinner table when your kids are going crazy. Go within for a few seconds and connect to your higher self. You can meditate and connect to God 24/7. You can maintain your deep connection at all times. Sometimes your energy will be very low and that’s ok. Start where you are and rise. When you feel the lower vibrations, it’s a red flag to raise. There is nothing quite like the Earth experience. It is loaded with contrast that reminds you to “rise above it”. The more you do it, the easier it will get. The goal is to obtain the highest vibration you can hold in each moment.

When you are vibrating high, you will change your life. You will jump timelines. You will change what you experience and what you see in each and every moment, and all you have to do is start with the intention to do so.

I like to close my eyes and feel the energy in my heart glowing. I like to reach for the highest feeling of love that I can feel, and see my heart energy grow larger and larger until it encompasses the entire plane. I like to put my feet on the ground and feel the crystalline energy of Gaia rise up through the chakras in my feet. I like to feel the chakras in my hands vibrating with love as well. I like to picture the energy of love and light rising through my feet straight through the pillar of chakras in my spine, and out through my head, connecting to my higher self and all that is, straight to God consciousness, unconditional love, and infinite possibility. Once I have reached this state of knowing my worth and oneness with the divine, I like to breathe it all in. At this point, my entire body is vibrating as my cells breathe in this high vibrational gift. I see my entire body full of this beautiful light and radiate it out through my heart chakra to all that need it.

A higher level of consciousness is just waiting for us to allow it to flow through us. Hardly any of us know our true power. You have no idea what is available to you if you would just ask to receive your innate gifts. If you are reading this, you are a part of the change that is occurring on this planet.

Be in the moment. Be aware of the way you feel. Do the work. Ask the questions. Feel for the answers, and follow your bliss <3


Where Did I Come From?

I had a conversation with Oscar walking home from school the other day. It wasn’t your typical conversation with a 7 year old. It was a conversation I wish the world could hear, because so many people don’t know it. But Oscar does, and so do his 4 and 5 year old brothers.

What is it? What do they know? Hang onto your hats, folks, because this may be news to some of you. They know that they created themselves.

And they know that their spirit self (AKA Higher Self or Inner Being) who gave them life is guiding them every second of every day, because they are one. They know that it was their intention to be here in this human life with these parents and these siblings. Women are inter-dimensional vessels of creation – but they don’t know the details yet 😉

They know it was their intention to create their physical bodies and they know they are still creating from within them. What they have yet to learn, and what most of us have yet to learn, is to create with intention; to create from centred energy rather than let the dense energy of fear and reaction have its way with us.

As their mother, it is my intention to remind them of these things often, and to hold the space for them to fully understand these truths. I will hold the space for them to know they can be, do, and have anything they desire, and that having a desire in and of itself means they have found a path worth taking.

Let me put this into practical terms. When teaching a child to ride a bike, you know without a doubt that they can do it. You know intuitively how much help to give. You know when to let go of the bike, and when to hold on tight. You know when to intervene, and you know when to let them try all by themselves. You know it’s a done deal. You can see it, and yet they whine, protest, and give up a few times. But your knowing will prevail, because the energy you hold is steady, strong, and high vibrational.

That’s exactly what our higher selves do for us. They give us support 24/7. They whisper in our ear. They tell us to turn right, to take this short cut, to go for a run, and to grab a drink of water. They love us unconditionally – with detached compassion, knowing that we’ll get the hang of this human thing eventually. And whether we do or don’t, they love us all the same. If you miss the boat this time, they’ll send another one. Or you’ll die missing all of the boats and come back to Earth to do it all again. “Let’s do it again. It’ll be fun” you’ll say. And you’ll do it again. And deep down you will remember. And this time, you’ll catch that boat. And all of it is really, really perfect.

You are perfect, right now, wherever you are. Whether you’re in the dark or full of light. Whether you’re angry, or sad, or happier than you’ve ever been in your life. It’s all perfect. You are exactly where you are meant to be, and you’re learning exactly what you need to learn.

We are all children in this school of life. We never get it done, and we never truly get it wrong because of it! We’re in a perpetual state of change. There are bumps and bruises, and celebrations of life and death. But most of all, there is love all around. God is in all things. There are unanswered prayers on the surface. Underneath the surface are prayers that have been answered in the most perfect of ways – in the most unimaginably perfect of ways. A miscarriage turns into the most perfect of pregnancies at a later date. A lost job turns into the job of your dreams. A failed relationship turns into you meeting the love of your life. Whatever happens, it’s all happening for you because you have the greatest of guides who knows your deepest desires – You.

My kids know that they create their own reality. They know that happiness is a choice. Well, they may not know it yet, but the seeds have been planted. They know that tantrums are a choice, too. And they know that mommy and daddy choose to have tantrums sometimes! And though life is not always perfect, it actually is. It’s perfect.

We’re all learning in this school of life, so let’s do it together. Hug it out often. Forgive daily. And know that whatever the question, LOVE is always, always the answer. Some things actually never do change – that’s how you know it’s the truth.


How Do I Enjoy My Own Positivity Without Getting Weighed Down By My Parter’s Negativity?

You actually started answering your own question within the rest of your question! Appreciation will get you a long way with respect to this issue. Appreciate the good father that he is. Appreciate the great man he is and the wonderful things he does. When he is stressing and worrying, gently point out the other side of the coin, yet know when it’s time to understand and not explain anything at all. A lot of couples get caught up in thoughts about what they don’t like about their spouses, and nothing good will ever come of that. You’ve got to appreciate what you love about them and find some lighthearted joy along the way, tending to your own vibration as need be. Daydream about what your perfect relationship looks like and ignore the rest.

It is ok to let yourself be happy while someone right next to you is freaking out. A lot of the time we dim our light because we think it will make someone else feel better, but all it does is make us feel terrible and doesn’t help the situation at all anyway. When someone close to you is disconnected from who they really are, stop paying attention to their current behaviour. Instead, go inward and make the connection to your inner being. Feel what your inner being is feeling and follow the guidance you receive. You will either know what to say or know what to do in that moment. Just follow your intuition whether it makes sense to you or not!

You probably have learned to do this already with your kids! You ignore their tantrums and hold the space for them to return to the angelic beings you know they really are. Do the same thing with your husband. If you let him go on and on complaining about something, you’re enabling this behaviour and it will continue. When you find the connection to your inner being, you are connected to the Source of your guidance. If you need a moment to yourself, take it. At least you can explain the reason you are pulling away; you can have an intelligent conversation with your partner that you are usually unable to have with your kids!

My partner and I agree to call each other out on our bullshit.  It doesn’t mean it’s always well received, but we agree to it and we learn from it.  You can also energetically move the energy around any issue by thinking better feeling thoughts with regard to them such as “I love when my partner tells me about the good parts of his day. I love hearing about all of the things that excite him. I love knowing that no matter how bad his day is, he brings the best of himself home to his family. I love how he can make me laugh, etc.” In time you will get better and better with regard to controlling your thoughts.

If you can control your thoughts with respect to your partner for even the smallest amount of time, you will see change. Do your best to tailor your thoughts to something that is already true for you or else it’s not going to help you because you will know deep down it is a lie. Fake it until you make it just doesn’t work for me. Being true to my heart always does.

Use Distance as a Tool

Put some distance between you and him whenever you feel the need. Your intuition will let you know because you’ll have this nagging pit in your stomach that tells you to remove yourself from an uncomfortable situation. Listen to this feeling and let yourself go!

Meditate, take a shower or bath, or go for a run. Listen to your favourite song really, really loud and dance around the kitchen with headphones on. I can’t tell you how many times going for a run has saved my sanity. Run/walk, whatever. Get some fresh air and clear your mind. It’s as easy as saying “Honey, do you mind if I go for a run?” Done. Answers come to me so easily while I am running. I will know what to say to my partner about a certain issue, or I will know how to deal with a certain issue with my kids, or I’ll get the idea to do something I’d never even considered before which solves a problem I didn’t know I even had. It’s incredible what guidance comes when you make t a priority to listen!

Lead By Example.

In time, your partner will see how calm you are and may start doing the same. He would benefit from a hobby he loves that feeds his spirit. I use the example of running because it’s what I love to do to clear my mind. If he can find something that clears his mind, it will do him (and you) a world of good. Because, if you aren’t doing something to bring yourself into alignment with who you really are, you’re grasping at straws and won’t have anything to give anyone else anyway. When you’re not in alignment, worry, fear, and anxiety easily take hold. When you’re in alignment, worry, fear, and anxiety don’t even exist. Love always prevails in the state of alignment.

There is no need to think about your problems when you run/exercise. Just clear your head and listen for your guidance. Your guides know more about you than you do. They also know the shortcut to everything you have ever asked for. I’m not entirely sure we need to think about anything ever again. Just ask to find solutions and listen for the answers to come. Expect them to come.

When you wake up in the morning, before you mentally jump into your to-do list, just lay there and listen for the answers to come. If you are working on your receptivity to your guidance, the fuzzy area between the awake and sleep states is a great time to allow this clarity to wash over you.

Perception is Tricky

We often create problems in our own minds that have no basis in reality. Communication is the key. Have a problem in your relationship? Talk about it. It doesn’t matter if it’s big or small. If it’s dragging you down, it’s worth getting it out in the open. When issues have roots, you’ve got to address them. Just find your alignment and then raise the issue with your partner when you are in a good feeling place about it.

I know a lot of spiritual teachers will tell you to stop looking at a problem and focus on the solution, which is valid for sure, but sometimes you just can’t get your mind off something and not talking about it ends up hurting the relationship. I have had much quicker success in my own life by addressing my issues with honesty and the knowing I have in my heart. It has made my parter and I closer than I ever thought possible.

Go with your own personal guidance in this area. No matter what anyone says, its always best to go with your intuition. What’s best for me may not me best for you. Some issues I can ignore and they work themselves out, while others just keep coming back around. If they keep coming back, it may be time to talk about them.

Permission to Thrive

You need to give yourself permission to thrive no matter what. If it means your partner stays where he is and you outgrow him, so be it. You have to follow your truth and you can’t expect everyone to come with you. I don’t think we are meant to have the same partner for life. I think the right partners come in at the right time. It doesn’t mean that you can’t have the same partner for life, but it means that you have to accept that you will have periods of exponential growth that occur at different times. A friend told me that the trick to staying together long-term is “we never fell out of love with each other at the same time.”

Connect to your inner being. Follow your heart. Speak your truth. Take care of yourself. Know that everything is always working out for you. And look for the evidence of it all day, every day.

Is Your Story Serving You?

My story is inspiring. It’s incredible. And yet as inspiring and uplifting as my story is, it never feels good to talk about it. To be completely honest, looking back at it in any capacity at all doesn’t feel good!

As amazing as your story may be, looking back at it brings the past into the present moment. As uplifting as the message is, bringing any pain into the present moment just doesn’t feel good. When you claim the past in the present, you are muddying up the perfection that is now. It feels so good to be in the now, where anything and everything is possible.

When you breathe deeply and claim “I am here now in the present moment,” you open space in your physical body to flow Source energy. “I am Source in the present moment” is even more powerful. You are spirit flowing through a physical body. You cannot NOT be connected to Source. You are Source. That will never change.

Obviously, you can do as you wish. I just want you to bring your attention to how you feel when you go into detail about things that are not working in your life. How does it make you feel? Perhaps you would feel better if you focused on the solution to what is not working? Once you have felt the pain of a situation, it’s time to focus on feeling better. You know what you don’t want, so what do you want?

People are going to do what they’re going to do and there is nothing you can do to change it. But you can change your reaction to it and you can change what you think about. When I’m hurting for whatever reason, I choose to fantasize about things that I really want to feel. You can start anywhere and get a pretty good rampage of appreciation going with just a little bit of focus and the intention to feel better.

Here’s an example of my mental game when I was at the lowest point in my life:

“I know that I’m going to be happy. When I am on the other side of this, it’s going to feel really good. I am so lucky to have my boys. I am so lucky that they chose me to be their mom! They are so precious and beautiful inside and out. I love that when I hug them, I can easily connect to Source energy. I know that there is so much more for me. I love knowing that I can connect to this Source whenever I choose. I love knowing that everything is always working out for me, even though I can’t see it yet. I know that there is so much working out for me right now that I can’t see! How amazing is it to know that we are truly loved regardless of what other humans are saying and doing? I love that I can feel whole and complete all on my own. How amazing is it that I have so much to look forward to in this life? I know that I created this and I take full responsibility for myself. It is so empowering to know that I create my own reality!”

I have no idea what caused me to catapult into this knowing, but I knew. I opened up to spirit so intensely and so easily. I imagine it is because I was never that far away from it, and my desire to feel good had never been stronger in that moment of pain. I was asking, they were responding, and in my desire to feel better I let it in.

Negative thinking is just a habit, and a habit can be changed – especially when you recognize what is going on at an energetic level. If thoughts are energy, and energy is everything in this vibrational Universe, your thoughts are creating your reality. The things you say are creating your reality. The frequency you hold is creating your reality.

Each moment is a new opportunity to create a different reality from the one you are currently in. The present moment is all you have. It is the point of creation. So, what do you want to do with it? Do you want to complain? Do you want to talk about what people have done in the past to hurt you? Do you want to yell at your kids?

Or, do you want to appreciate? Do you want to love? Do you want excitement? Do you want to open your heart? Do you want to feel good? Do you want to create something new?

I want to love. I want to open my heart. I want to live my life flowing Source energy. I want to feel connected to all that is. I want to thrive. I want my sons to thrive. I want to be incredibly blissfully happy. I want to have a relationship with my partner that is full of passion. I want to tap into my inner being’s perspective and to live a life full of precious  gifts – moments that I couldn’t plan if I tried from my human perspective. I want to trust that everything is always working out for me. I want to know that everything is always really ok. I want to live life knowing that there is never any risk.

Now, if we bring all of those wants into this feeling moment, it would sound something like this:

I love loving. I love living my life with an open heart. I love feeling Source energy flow through me. I love being connected to all that is. I love thriving in this time space reality. I love that my children are thriving and that I am incredibly blissfully happy. I love that my relationship is full of passion and love. I love those moments when I am at one with my inner being’s perspective, when my heart is glowing with pure love and joy, and I love seeing the manifestations of my vibration. I trust that everything is always working out for me. I love knowing that there is no risk. I love knowing that there is nothing to fear. All is well.

Q&A: How Do I Stop Feeling Like I Can Never Catch Up?

Busyness is an epidemic in our society. Everyone is so busy doing that they’re missing the point of being in the moment. The key to taking control of your crazy life, just like anything else, lies in your heart.

Wherever you are, you can get to where you want to be. It helps if you have a specific goal in mind but it’s not necessary. Simply knowing what you want to feel is good enough. For instance, you may know that you want to be a painter, so you paint when you feel the inspiration. If you don’t have “time” – make time. Schedule it in. If you don’t know what is it you are looking for, you can appreciate the feeling of how you want to feel. For instance, you can feel what it wold feel like to have unlimited time, ease, love, connection, and excitement.

All of this is going to come together via the Law of Attraction. Like attracts like. The vibration you put out is the one you receive. Things are always in a state of change. Nothing ever stays the same. But, you may not notice the change because things are changing to more of the same and more of the same and more of the same.

“Work is hard.” “I hate my job” “I never have enough time” etc. are thoughts that are going to change to more and more of the same. If you can practice feeling appreciation and joy in your daily experience, it will raise your vibration enough so that as time passes, you will see palpable change. Happier people will enter into your experience. There will be more laughing and more spontaneity. In general, you will feel more excitement in your life.

Over time, you will begin to notice how your thoughts create your reality. And in greater time, you will see just how powerful of a co-creator you really are. Eventually you will come to know that you can be, do, or have anything you desire because your life experience will show you time and time again that you get what you think about whether you want it or not.

The easiest way to get the momentum rolling in the right direction is to take time every single morning to make sure you get out of bed with the right mindset. If you wake up with a  debilitating thought, take the time to think of a better feeling thought on that subject, or choose another subject all together. I recommend leaving your thoughts on any subject in a better feeling place because it is incredibly empowering to know that you are in charge of your thoughts and that they are not in charge of you. Plus, it feels better!

Tips for improving your current job:

  1. Set the intention when you go to bed to wake up in a good mood, full of energy and enthusiasm for your job in the morning. Intention is everything. Most people pre-pave their days full of dislike for their jobs. This is your chance to choose your own adventure the day before.
  2. If you wake up in dread with the thought of going to work, wake up 45 minutes earlier and go for a quick run. Movement of the body is important to move energy, so if you can swing it, get yourself moving!
  3. If working out sounds impossible, (I can literally hear you groaning) choose any thought about your job that you really like. Appreciate how good that thought feels and appreciate the people who make your job fun.
  4. Meditate. Set your alarm for 15-20 minutes and sit with the intention to simply be. Breathe deeply and feel for the love that is omnipresent. Focus on your heart chakra and let in the love.
  5. Appreciate all day long. Especially when you notice negative thoughts. Even people you have always perceived as completely awful will change right before your eyes if you only see the good in them and find things to appreciate. And when a compliment for someone pops into your head, share it! You are an uplifter at heart!

And last but not least, take time for yourself. Put yourself first. It’s not selfish to do what you want to do. It’s IMPERATIVE to being happy. Take care of yourself and do what makes you happy. If you don’t do this, you won’t have any energy to give anyone else anyway. This means saying NO to a lot of thing you are currently saying YES to and regretting. If it’s not a HELL YES it’s a HELL NO. Remember this one thing alone and I guarantee you will catch up and feel an immediate increase of joy in your daily life!

The happier you are, the more tapped into your spirit you will be, and the easier it will be for you to hear the inspiring thoughts your spirit is constantly sharing with you. This is why meditation is so important. It is an open invitation to spirit. When you quiet your mind, you are better able to hear your guidance. Spiritual guidance is not reserved for psychics and mediums. If you are a human on Earth, you have spiritual guidance because the “spirit you” thought the “physical you” into being. And that same energy that created you is flowing through you now, creating with your thoughts and your overall vibration. The frequency you emit is what the law of attraction responds to in each and every waking moment.

Pay attention to that little voice in your head. Most thoughts that feel really, really good to you are actually guidance from spirit. Spirit knows exactly what you want and how to get it to you in the easiest of ways, but often we ignore these amazing thoughts and counter them with thoughts like “I can’t do that”. Yes, you can. If you received and inspiring thought, you can do it. Think about it some more and get really excited about it. You can be, do, or have anything you desire. All you have to do is align with your spirit on a daily basis and let it all in. You don’t even need to think anymore. You just have to be happy and let the law of attraction and spirit show you the way!

How can I release the grief from life’s losses that I am holding in my body?

We are Eternal beings, and death is one of the great misunderstandings of man. Since no one ever really dies, the only thing holding you in this place of grief are your thoughts/beliefs about death. Your loved ones who have transitioned have released all resistance they had while they were Earth bound. This means that any petty grievances and beliefs disappeared the moment their soul left their physical body. All that remains is pure love, which is the only thing that was ever real to begin with.

Once you stop looking for your loved ones where they were (their physical bodies) and start looking for them where they are (the non-physical “realm” right where you are) you will be able to tap into the essence of them and let all of the love they have for you come rushing in. Any time you are thinking of them, rest assured that they are with you. When a smell reminds  you of them, it is because you heard their call from non-physical! The more you can open up and play with them, the more you will notice them around you, and the more fun you will continue to have!

I play with my Gram often. She visited me while on the cruise ship last week and we had a conversation about how absolutely amazing it is that I have found this tribe of people that I love and appreciate so much! She was far from these beliefs when she was alive and I can feel her excitement for the things I know at such a young age. I then asked who else was coming to say hello and my 8th grade teacher came forward. It’s not normal of me to think of my 8th grade teacher, and that’s why it was so easy for me to trust and know he was near. He and I had an amazing connection from the time we met, and after he passed away he came to me in a dream. When these things happen, trust it. Trust in what comes to you. You’re not making it up. It’s all real.

I can tell that you are ready to let go of all you have been holding on to. You’ve got this. Trust. This is where intention comes in. Set the intention to accept the situation for what it is. Everything is exactly as it is supposed to be. Accept that although you no longer have a physical relationship with this person, your relationship is far from over. Actually, I find my relationships deepen when loved ones pass because they stop pushing against me and only their love remains. All other perspectives fall away and they become pure positive energy. This makes it very easy to tap into them when you’re vibrationally near their current state.

The easiest way for me to open my heart has been to sit quietly in meditation with the intention to feel for the love that is shining down on me. Focus on your heart chakra and grow the energy outward. Breathe slowly and deeply, letting go of physical and mental resistance with each breathe. Feel your body soften. Feel your mind let go. Invite a feeling of ease and freedom.

As soon as you forgive yourself for whatever transpired before they passed, and start to let yourself be truly happy, everything you have perpetuated through unkind thoughts toward yourself will shift. When you use the present moment to think unkind thoughts about a past version of you, you’re not letting the whole of who you currently are flow through. You’re blocking a lot of really good stuff from coming in, and that’s why it feels so bad.

The non-physical you knows who you really are and loves you unconditionally. When you think a thought that is in opposition to this universal truth, you’re going to feel bad. You simply can not think a thought that is in opposition to what your inner being knows and feel good about it. So when you catch yourself in a thought that feels terrible, ask yourself what your inner being must be thinking!

Tell your inner being that you are open to their perspective. Be open to the thoughts that pop into your head. If you’re having trouble with this, distraction helps. Go do something fun! Do anything that brings some joy to your heart. Go for a run, walk, grab a cup of coffee with a (happy) friend, read a book, watch a movie, or listen to Despacito and dance around your kitchen like no one’s watching!

I am so excited for you to open up more completely to the world of spirit because I know what a fulfilling relationship awaits you and it’s always only a thought away <3

Alignment is Everything

Alignment is everything. It’s knowing when someone needs a hug and it’s knowing exactly what to say, even in the toughest of human moments. It’s having the best timing and the sly punch line. It’s pure heart wide-open perfection. It’s unconditional love and everlasting joy; pure magic in every waking moment.

How do you get there? One day, one moment, one thought, one nap, one meditation, one desire, one mistake, one laugh, one puppy; one step at a time.

How do I know when I’m there? You’ll be happy. You won’t take yourself too seriously. You won’t sweat the small stuff. You’ll laugh out loud at the funny voice in your head. You’ll ask a question and receive the answer straight away. You’ll know things without explanation. You’ll understand without having to bring someone over to your perspective. You’ll love and appreciate with reckless abandon and you won’t notice anything other than the beauty inherent in all things. You’ll attend the buffet of life, take only what you desire and ignore the rest. You’ll live in the now. You’ll be the light in the room.

How I finally surrendered:

One day last week I woke up from sleep with the knowing to cancel my plans for the day/night. I decided then and there that I was going to surrender to this thought; to surrender to my inner being forevermore. The time had come to listen to that little voice in my head. That voice has always been there, but I’ve often ignored it, countering its optimism with belittling thoughts. I don’t know why I didn’t think I was good enough to follow through with all of the wonderful ideas that flowed through me, but in that moment I knew I had to be free. I couldn’t deny it any more.

Each morning when I wake up, I reaffirm the desire to give up any resistance to my inner being’s calls. I affirm to do my best to listen and follow through with this incredible gift of guidance. I will lay in bed and meditate until I feel the solid connection between the physical me and the non-physical me. Essentially, I feel for the love that I know is shining down on me. My heart chakra glows outward to the point of pure ecstatic bliss. I can feel my root chakra, sacral, and solar plexus chakras activated and burning bright as well. My throat, third eye, and crown are clear. And then I go through my day as “Source as Amy,” talking to that little voice in my head throughout the day that is so excited to play with me.

There is nothing quite like living your life while fully allowing Source energy to pour through you. I have the best moments ever. Each moment is new and exciting. Each moment is my favourite. Because, even though so many moments are precious and exciting, even looking back to enjoy their deliciousness isn’t as good as feeling fully alive in the present moment.

For the past 2 weeks I have fully allowed myself to let go of the old and to embrace the new. I have met so many new friends. So many of them I had met before, but this time I was ready to let them into my heart. Just yesterday I had the most delicious moment with an older gentleman. He parked his walker beside me and I jumped up to hold the door open for him. “It’s already snowing in Regina,” he said. “Thank you so much. I will make sure I avoid it today.” “Good.” He said. Perfect moment. So much love and fun flowing between us.

The most perfect people flow into my experience, and those who aren’t a vibrational match simply flow by. I fully embrace the knowing that I am pure positive love energy. I don’t trip over my words anymore and can say exactly what I want to say when I wanted to say it. While in France, I spoke perfect French! I tapped into everything I had always been and my mind and words were able to flow with ease. A few days ago I even sang “Here, There, and Everywhere” while walking down the streets of Lido di Venezia without a care in the world. The disconnected me would have been shy and scared to have people listen to me.

One day after meditation, I floated down the stairs and ran smack into Esther. I thanked her for everything she does and she said something like “It’s fun to have fun, isn’t it?” I said, “If I told you about all the fun we’re having I’d be here all day. So I just want to say thank you.” I realized then that she was holding my hands. Such a beautiful experience! What a wonderful memory I will have forever. And it is with excitement that I eagerly anticipate another rendez-vous!

The day I cancelled all of my plans I ended up having a wonderful day walking through Napoli with a new dear friend. We had the best pizza I’ve ever tasted, the best coffee in the cutest alleyway off the beaten path, and afterward went to a beautiful sail away party at sunset. That party led to an incredible dinner and connections I will have for life. The dinner led to a day on a Yacht sailing around Malta the next day and even more love and appreciation for the souls I was coming to know; to remember.

And from there life just keeps getting better and better. My heart is full. The work I have done is radiating out for all to see and for all of my mirrors made of flesh to return to me. My kids are radiating and my partner and I have a greater understanding of what we mean to one another. I love knowing that everything is always working out for me and in the best interest of everyone involved. Life is too precious to spend unhappy and happiness is my greatest goal in life.

Most of all I love how my intentions, no matter how small, played out seamlessly. Like a thought to save someone in particular a seat one day that didn’t work out, worked out the next day without me even trying. I found myself with a front row seat to gift to the most amazing woman ever, just as I had intended.

I especially love the moments of inspiration that don’t make any sense. Everything makes sense in the end! I love that I can continually see the evidence of my alignment, or lack thereof, and that I am able to change my thoughts or my state by simply choosing another thought. If I find myself in a place that I can’t get back from, I just go to bed and start again the next day with meditation and appreciation and the desire to listen to that little voice in my head. Alignment is everything.

Setting Boundaries 101

The lesson of the day is this: It’s ok to set boundaries. In fact, it’s absolutely essential to your happiness.

I haven’t written in awhile due to kids, bracelet business, and well just figuring life out in general. But mostly it’s because I’ve been really focused on myself lately. And I’ve been really happy because of it. My happiness is more important than my kids’ happiness. Because if I don’t tend to myself, I’ve got nothing to give them anyway. It’s why I don’t yell 24/7 and can generally be calm in the middle of the storm. I say generally because I lose it from time to time as my kids will attest!

If you don’t set boundaries, you’re going to run out of steam. It’s why my kids don’t play hockey or do half of the stuff other kids are doing. Why you ask? Because I CHOOSE ME. I choose to give myself time while they fight with each other in the back yard. I let them fight and tell them to figure it out. I ignore their issues and trust them to learn some lessons. Did your brother punch you in the face? Well, that’s what happens when you punch someone in the back instead of walking away honey. Learn from it. I don’t ignore them completely. I’ve got eyes in the back of my head; I’m a mom. And when I’m not watching, I’m feeling it all.

This is where it all comes together: Feel for your boundaries.


Say someone invites you to a party and you don’t want to go. Tell them you can’t make it and don’t go. Listen to that gut feeling. Don’t go. Don’t make excuses. You don’t need to tell the truth per say, but you don’t need to lie either. Don’t do something to make someone else happy. Choose you and make yourself happy – there’s the secret to happy life! Appreciate everything, and do the stuff that makes you happy. Boom.

Sometimes I do things I don’t want to do because it will make my kids happy, but I’m doing it for me too, because making them happy makes me happy. Taking them to the park when I want to lay on the couch makes all of us happy, so I go. My gut feeling here is not saying “lay on the couch”. It is saying “take them to the park”. So I go.

When I was waitressing, my boss had another restaurant halfway across the city. He asked me to work at the other location a few times and I said “no.”  The result? He stopped asking me. You know who he did ask repeatedly? The girls who said “yes” and complained to me on the side about having to go to the further location. “That’s why I said no!” I would tell them.

It’s ok to say no. And you don’t need to explain why either. It’s ok to not care what other people think of you. It’s ok to do it your way. You’re doing a great job. You’re exactly where you meant to be in this time and space. Every day is a gift. Every day you get to wake up and decide you are going to be true to yourself. Every day is a chance to be your Divine Self here on Earth. It’s what you intended.

Before you go to bed, think about who you are. You can meditate sitting up for 15-20 minutes or you can lay in bed and just visualize your ideal self. Think of the boundaries you need to set, and decide what you are willing and not willing to tolerate. And when you wake up in the morning, wake up as this person you really are.

If people are mean, let them be mean. If they lash out, let them lash out and follow your instincts. This can mean you rise above it and ignore it. Or it can mean that you explain your perspective. Just stay in alignment with your higher self and follow any guidance that comes.

When you lash back, it means you give away your power. Know who you really are and let them rise up to meet you, or leave them where they are. Five people can witness the exact same event and have 5 different perspectives that don’t line up with each other in the least. 5 different “realities” of 1 so called “reality”. Know that they are where they are and stand in the knowing that they can be more. They will either meet you or stay put, and it’s all ok.

For example. My 4 year old had a tantrum, told me he hated me, and whatever else…”ok” I said, and I walked away. I fully know he doesn’t hate me. Not yet anyway…he’s 4, not 14. I know I am an amazing person. I know he’s an amazing person. I ignored it and let it be. Guess what? He snuggled me and told me how much he loves me, and snuggled and told his 3 year old brother how much he loves him. This was before he told him he hates him 5 minutes later, but I digress…

The point is, people are human. News flash! Humans are weird. You can’t control them. But you can control you. You can control your thoughts, and you can control your reactions or, lack thereof. You can set boundaries, and they can like them or not. It doesn’t matter how they respond so long as you are true to yourself.

Is your adult son living with you and treating you like garbage? Set a date and kick him out. It’s time for him to realize he can fly. Are you ready to say something that someone is not ready to hear? If you’re ready to say it, then say it. It doesn’t matter if they’re ready to hear it. You’re ready to say it.

I’m not telling you to go attack people you’ve “had it up to here” with, but I am telling you to stop taking crap from people that you have been taking because you haven’t listened to your intuition. Stand up for yourself. Chance are, you have a nagging feeling right now about something that you know you need to do but are scared to do, and this is your sign to do it. There is nothing to fear. It’s in your head. There is nothing to worry about. Everything is always working out for you, and you’ve got to trust your feelings. When you know something, you know it. You don’t need to know why.

Don’t take anything personally ever. Your parents did the best they could do given their growth and their perceived worth. It wasn’t about you or because of you, it was because of them. Everything everyone does is because of them. Don’t take it anything personally. Be yourself. Do what makes you happy. You are where you are, and that’s ok.
