Repeat After Me . . .

My value is not determined by how many likes I get. 
My worth is not wrapped up in followers. 
I will not allow the voices of others on social media and in the real world to silence my truth. 
I will stop comparing myself to highlight reels. 
Thank you for unfollowing me and making room for those in alignment with my message. 
I promise to show up authentically from the wisdom of my soul.

Prosperity

Want to learn how to align to prosperity? Ya, I thought so.

The thing is, it seems that everybody and their dogs are talking about manifestation so how do you know what works and what doesn’t? Results.

As a society we want what we want when we want it, and in the West we are hardwired to expect that whatever we need is the click of a button away. We no longer are expected to have cash on hand or in our bank accounts since credit card companies are practically giving them away. This means more debt, more consumerism, more stress and everything that comes along with that.

It’s designed this way on purpose so that you, the consumer, keep feeling like you need more and more and more to be happy but, the truth is, you’ll never get there that way and deep down you know it. So why then is it still prevalent?

We’ve got to do something about self-worth and real prosperity.

Abundance, opulence, prosperity, and wealth at the root, are all about feeling expansive. We are infinite creator beings in a body and beneath the many layers of programming we do know it; however, we need tools to access our inherent worth and it’s certainly not taught in the school systems. I don’t know about you, but I never learned how to love myself, soothe my own pain, speak kindly within, or turn on my divine birthright for prosperity.

Prosperity doesn’t just mean money. Wealth doesn’t just mean cash. Opulence doesn’t just mean luxuriousness and abundance doesn’t just mean endless spending. All of these words are about the energetics of expansion and magnetism: each one represents the frequency of being infinite.

You are not small. You are meant to take up space in this world and shine brightly. That takes energy and I’m going to show you how to tap into your infinite nature. Bring on the abundance, prosperity, opulence and wealth - whatever that means to you - and get ready for more of whatever it is you’re calling in. Perhaps it’s an abundance of health, a wealth of relationships, prosperous partnership or just cold hard cash. You decide. Have fun.

The Fire Within

We are all comprised of 5 tattvas or elements: earth, water, fire, air, and ether. 

If the tattvas are balanced and strong, as well as in the proper areas of the body, then you can repel stress, trauma, and illness and magnetize health, prosperity and alignment.

You Are Beautiful: Secrets of Attractiveness

Our reality is like a million shards of glass; distorted, fragmented, and broken.  My entire life I have been preoccupied with beauty; beautiful landscapes, beautiful homes, beautiful cars, beautiful people.  I can't explain where it comes from, it has always just been there.  For many years I harboured guilt over this love of beauty.  There have been times when I have let it  consume me.  Moments where I  felt betrayed by it.

Blessings in Disguise

After a week on Vancouver Island things got clear.  Clearer than I wanted them to be.  Clearer than I wanted to admit to myself, or anyone else, for that matter.  I began to see how even though I loved my partner dearly, he wasn't showing up for me the way I deserved or needed: On a deeper level, I began to feel how he wasn't a vibrational match for me and that he wasn't my life partner.

Forgiveness

People who are hurt, hurt other people, and the seed of anger only grows when we allow others to impact us negatively.  Anger then passes from person to person, a marry-go-round of resentment spinning out of control until everyone is sick.  This is where society is stuck – in a playground during recess where the connection between action and consequence are still new and unfamiliar.  It needs to stop.  Forgiveness is the cure.  If we don’t learn to forgive, we allow the person who has wronged us to hold us prisoners in the past and therefore, lose sight of the beauty found in the present moment.

Don't Panic

In the winter of 2008 I started to experience panic attacks and became familiar with the mental illness known as Panic Disorder.  It was my third year in University and I was attempting to balance a heavy course load, a job, a boyfriend and a very active social life.  Looking back, after looking deep within, I realize that I was seeking happiness synthetically, rather than organically, and my life was way out of alignment to my TRUTH.

Celebrating Celibacy

This blog post was originally written two years ago for another blog I used to guest write for.  My heart desires to share it with you now.  Sat Nam.

“I can tell by your knees that you don’t have much sex lately.”

I said, “Why? Because they’re so close together?”

She laughed.  “No –it’s the cartilage.  Very dry.  Hormones from sex lubricate the joints.  How long since sex for you?”

“About a year and a half.”

“You need a good man.  I will find one for you.  I will pray at the temple for a good man for you, because you are my sister...” (Elizabeth Gilbert. Eat Pray Love.)

 

In my experience most people view celibacy as peculiar, a punishment, a means to cleanse or as Gilbert notes, dry and something that requires prayer.  One day over lunch with my girlfriends I said, “I’m going to be celibate for a year!”  I was being predominantly sarcastic but something inside of me glittered with recognition.  I had verbally started to manifest the course of my life but I didn’t yet know the profound influence it would have on me and my journey to self-love.  Celibacy has enhanced my experiences regarding self-validation, relationships, and spirituality.    

 

At this point you may be asking why I chose to make this vow.  It started over a year ago, albeit without my knowledge, when I ended a very volatile relationship.  As the old adage goes, a drowning man cannot save a drowning man – and both of us were drowning.  I was holding on to issues from my past and so was he – both of us looking for completion in the other.  Even though I ended the relationship, I carried the baggage around with me to the next one, never getting too close, and again the cycle continued.  When this relationship ended, I took a good look at the patterns I was creating in my life.  The first step is taking responsibility.  I thought back to my seemingly unconscious thought to be celibate and I made a decision.

Have you ever really thought about the relationship you have with yourself?  Where do most of your thoughts come from?  Are they positive?  Negative?  Do you scold yourself with words your parents used?  Are you beautiful this week because someone reminded you?  If you are, that’s OK – you are human.  As humans, we take the external cues from the outside world and we use them to validate ourselves and our actions.  Cooley and Mead coined this term the Looking-Glass-Self.  In sociology, this is the idea where we see ourselves through the eyes of other people – either present or imagined – and incorporate their views into our self-concept.  Who we are then is determined, at least in part, by the external audience we have in mind.  Does this sound familiar?  We are constantly comparing ourselves to others.  We introduce ourselves based on what we do for a living or if we are married or dating and we relentlessly look for satisfaction in our daily lives – whether that is through food, sex, or whatever else ‘feels good’ right now!  I did the same thing.  I’m still working on it.  I’m not suggesting not doing things that make you feel good.  I am suggesting being conscious of why you are making the decision you are making.  It has been fascinating to observe what happens when one of the basic human drives that influence behaviour is removed.  As you can guess, your behaviour starts to change. 

    

I looked for attention and validation from others at first.  How could I not, I had been doing that my whole life.  The beginning was tough.  I can remember coming home after a night out and crying because I felt so alone.  My Ego repeatedly tried to scare me into thinking I’d go on alone forever if I didn’t break this silly little vow – her words, not mine.  Her voice would say things like, “You’re shutting off the energy to meet your person!” or “Think of all the experiences you are missing out on!” – knowing just how to play me.  Sometimes the Ego would use trickery in the form of a dream, elusive but lucid, reminding me of past romance.  The first six months were extremely difficult as I fought with this voice.  Then it got easier.  I started to take myself more serious and I began validating myself every day.  I would look in the mirror and say positive affirmations.  I have inspiring words written all over my house.  If I was out I would repeat them and soon enough I began to have a love affair with myself.  The company is great.  We like the same documentaries; we care about culture, and music and art.  We love to travel and experience different foods.  We are perfect, whole, and complete – and we are One.  I’ve been spiritual my whole life but I never learnt how to validate myself until I shut out the noise from the outside and looked inward to find answers.  I went back to the Source, where all of the answers reside in you – patiently waiting for you to ask.

It has been a beautiful experience to witness how my relationships have changed during this time.  By being authentic I have attracted some very creative like-minded individuals – my old friendships have flourished as well.  Because I’m not wondering if some boy thinks I’m cute, hoping that true love will find me based on my outfit choice, I’m free to be present in each conversation, each smile, each laugh, and each hug.  This experience has taught me many things, all of which are mine to take with me forever, and the most critical lesson it has taught me is how I can make myself happy.  You must fight for your happiness.  Elizabeth Gilbert notes, “I keep remembering one of my Guru’s teachings about happiness.  She says that people universally tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will maybe descend upon you like fine weather if you’re fortunate enough.  But that’s not how happiness works.  Happiness is the consequence of personal effort.  You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it.  You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings.”  I have surrendered to her last statement, making it my mantra.  

    

Since my energy is free to focus on myself I have also had the benefit of increased union with other realms.  My dreams symbolisms create a deeper understanding of the world around me and my protection in it.  I am opening up chakras and taking charge of my happiness.  Because of this renewed sense of peace I am kinder to myself, more patient, more loving and more open-minded.  My journey won’t be yours.  I’m not suggesting that celibacy is the only way to find inner joy, in fact I think relationships bring to the surface a breadth of knowledge about who you are; the point is that as a society we are addicted to a lot of things – sex is one of them.  The real joy comes from loving thyself and as a by-product all of your relationships will be harmonious.  You will begin to attract people in vibrational alignment to you and there is power in that.   You are a gentle soul – go forth with faith.  And always follow the pathless forestial landscape of your own heart.
