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

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!

The Joy of Being Alone.

Right now my house is quiet. Blissfully quiet. The kids have all been delivered to their respective schools, my hubby is working at Starbucks…on his laptop, and I have about 5 places I need to be right now and a huge project I need to finish by tomorrow. So naturally I don’t want to do anything at all right now but sit in the glorious silence that surrounds me. And once again, the silence brought my fingers to this keyboard, and here we are.

The silence is where I can be wholly me, unaltered by others’ energy fields, their expectations, their desires, their needs, their incessant whining about needing to be fed on a consistent basis. What’s that all about anyway?

Silence is golden. And it’s something you don’t fully realize until it becomes really really hard to obtain. It wasn’t until we had 3 kids and 2 dogs running around that we understood just how golden silence really is. It’s funny that we need the contrast of what we don’t want to finally understand what we do want. If you are constantly running around like a headless chicken, it’s high time you throw a cushion on the floor and take a seat.

I didn’t understand just how unhappy I had been until I started to get glimpses of happiness. You can spend your whole life in a downward spiral of gloom and doom  thinking it’s normal. And while it may indeed be normal, it’s not what you are meant to live.

Are you smiling right now? You should be. Are you excited when you wake up in the morning or do you have an adult temper tantrum in your head when you open your eyes? Are you happy to be alive, happy to make choices every day about which direction you want your life to go? Are you crying happy tears right now, or sad ones?

Let me ask you this: When was the last time you laughed so hard for so long that you just couldn’t stop. And when you looked at someone, they started laughing too, just because you were laughing, and when you think about that moment now, you laugh about it still! Was it yesterday, or was it when you were a child?

Without knowing it, we learn how to be adults from our parents. Children see and hear everything, even the things that adults wish they could desperately hide from them, because the loudest things we hear aren’t being said, they’re being felt. When my marriage fell apart my kids saw it, they heard it, and they felt it. I knew it, and I did my best to hold it together. I don’t know if I did it for them or for me, but I knew that being strong was the only choice worth making.

Choosing fear was not an option. I had chosen fear my entire life, and look where it had gotten me. So I chose differently. I chose love. And it was the best choice I have ever made in my entire life. I decided to love everyone and everything, but most of all, I finally gave myself permission to love myself.

Among other things, meditation saved me. I believed in angels and guides already, so I decided to go all in and entertain the whole God idea. I sat in silence and prayed. I prayed for strength and courage and guidance and infinite love and support. I prayed to all of the Archangels I could name to enter into my life and help me transform into this person I knew I could be. I prayed to Archangel Raphael, Uriel, Gabriel, Chamuel, Michael, Remiel, Raziel, Zadkiel, Jophiel, Sandalphon, Metatron and more. I brought them into the car with me, into the shower, everywhere. I stopped listening to music. I stopped watching television. My perspective had totally shifted and I wanted one thing more than anything in the entire world: I wanted to stop being numb and start directing my life. I wanted to take my power back and be blissfully happy.

For the first time in my life I understood that it was my job to make myself happy – no one else’s. I finally understood just how much I had given my power away throughout the years. I gave it away all over the place. I gave it to anyone who did anything better than me. I gave it to anyone who did anything at all because I assumed they would do it better than me. And all the while, this really awesome spirit inside of me was suffocating, willing me to step up and step into my power, but it was too scary to be strong, so I kept choosing fear.

This seems like the perfect time to introduce my favourite quote. And while Elanor is granted having said this, it seems to be a paraphrase of a conversation she once had. Either way, I wish I could have coffee with her sometime:

Why would I keep choosing fear? The best answer I have for this question is that a fear response on this level is learned. Learning not to touch a hot stove was something I could learn all on my own. It’s instinctual. But learning to be scared to talk on the telephone is not. Mostly I learned how to be scared from my mother, and because I operated at the vibration of fear, it was the only signal my antennae picked up. I was so fearful that I was attracting fearful people to my experience. I could only see the fearful outcomes of situations because I never entertained the idea that maybe I could be strong.

Over time I had chosen fear so often that it was an ingrained response. My fear neurons had created a super highway in my brain and there was no off ramp.

Two years ago, I sat down with a psychic medium who told me that I hadn’t laughed in 3 years. At first I was defensive. But a split second later I knew she was right. 3 YEARS! That is a long time to be unhappy. Thank God I was on a quest to be happy. It was my happiness quest that brought me to her in the first place. She told me that I too had gifts. She told me that I have the power to sit on her side of the table, and I knew she was right. The more I sit in silence, the more I am able to tap into them.

You too have powerful gifts. The best way I know to access them is to find joy in silence. Get to know yourself intimately by carving out a few minutes to enjoy your own company. Get to know the spirit within that is wanting so very badly to be heard.

Don’t use an excuse. Don’t do that. Don’t say that you don’t have time. Make time. Instead of laying down immediately when you go to bed, sit up. Sit on your bed, prop yourself up with pillows, and breathe. It’s that easy. You’re meditating. Turn off the radio in your car. Close your eyes at red lights and take a few deep breaths until the guy behind you honks to tell you your time is up!

Take a break from social media. That should free up a few hours ;). If there is a show you’re really excited to watch, watch it! Enjoy it, and be happy! But if you’re mindlessly flipping through television stations, turn it off and hang out with your spirit. It’s time well spent. Take your power back and be happy, wild, and free!
