5 Steps to Shifting Our World and Your Life Forever!

We are living in some of the most fascinating times ever. Depending on your mindset, they are either the most chaotic and scary times…or the most exciting and exhilarating times.

Chaos normally precedes peace. The chaos is a form of disruption, forcing us to wake up and change our ways. Our world has been on an unsustainable path of destruction.

Fortunately we are collectively waking up and taking action. We are starting to understand that we are all connected and we need to take care of each other, our animals, our environment and our beautiful planet.

We want peace not war. We want healthy, natural food not chemical crap passed off as food. We want loving, supportive relationships not drama and toxic interactions. We want trustworthy, authentic leaders not two faced people leading with a hidden agenda. We want genuine connections to real people not superficial likes and followers.

Let’s look at this from a cosmic level first. Our solar system is moving into an area in our galaxy that has a higher frequency. Schumann’s resonance has been changing drastically since 2015. It had been measured at a steady pace of 7.83 hz since it was first discovered/measured in 1954. In 2015 it started having anomalies, doubling and tripling for short periods of time. These energetic frequencies are increasing both in intensity and time. Much of this can be measured through the electromagnetic frequencies as well as plasma waves. This helps to explain how you may be feeling off or why we see such chaos right now.

In order to change our external world, we must all start from within. I believe we are all being called to do our own inner work. The majority of us are carrying emotional baggage in a cellular level that if affecting our lives today, whether we know this consciously or not, is another thing.

If we consider a micro level, there are many saying now that these energies are changing our DNA from a carbon base to a crystalline base. I haven’t found so much mainstream science on this yet but the idea is certainly interesting. This is why I think we are seeing so many emotions and situations showing up in our own lives during this transition.

There are five steps that can help as we work towards raising our own frequency…

1) Process Emotions

We need to feel our emotions on a conscious level. Don’t stuff them inside and don’t let them rage out of control. Be in the moment, name the emotion and thoroughly feel it so it passes through you. Have compassion for yourself and others if they hurt you because generally hurt people hurt people. When you understand this, you can shift yourself into a place of compassion and understanding. Take responsibility for your emotions and work towards being proactive by responding rather than reactive by being triggered. Only you can do that!

2) Heal Traumas

The emotional baggage we haven’t processed gets stuck on an emotional and cellular level. Over time, these affect our relationships and worse can have a negative impact on our health. When we can heal wounds and traumas, we lighten our load. The best way to heal is through forgiveness, both for others and for you. Forgiving yourself is sometimes the hardest person to forgive but do it anyway. We all make mistakes! The key is to take the lesson from all of those traumas and have a sense of gratitude because it showed you how to be resilient!

3) Ground Yourself

If a storm is coming, you tether in your boat and batten down the hatches, right? The chaos around us is that storm. Spend time in nature, meditate, and practice mindfulness to ground yourself. Practice conscious gratitude and focus on love and things that bring you joy. Educate yourself and be relentless in pursuing the truth. There are certain forces that want you to live in fear. Ignore that and choose love instead. We all have this immense creative power within ourselves—learn to work with it! We are spiritual beings having a human experience. So do what it takes to find your inner peace and then guard it fiercely!

4) Dream Big

Now is more than ever the time for you to manifest your dreams. What is the world YOU want to live in? Focus on that. When we can come together to share a collective dream—you know, something like world peace—then we can create it together! There are 7.7 billion people on the planet today. When we come together, we can solve our problems. There are so many brilliant minds that can create solutions to some of the biggest issues right now. So think about how YOU want to make an impact. And don’t worry about starting small—it all starts with that first step. But keep your vision big in your mind and take actions steps each day to move forward. Use the power of your imagination and don’t be afraid to dream big! The world needs those special talents and gifts that only you have to give.

5) Be Open-Minded

It’s so important in this day and age to stop the judgments and be open-minded. There is so much disinformation and misinformation out there so be vigilant to find the truth out for yourself. Research, talk to others with curiosity and openness rather than being rigid or getting triggered, feel into what feels right to you. Our bodies are amazing in giving us information when we know how to listen to it and trust our gut or intuition. Know that it is OK to agree to disagree and choose not be enemies. Look for what we have in common and build each other up instead. This will go a long way in building solid relationships with others.

By working on these five steps, it will help prepare you and make this global shift easier for you to handle. We all have our own part to contribute. Let’s do this together and create the wonderful world we know we can!

5 Tips To Shift Your Crappy Life

Life can be a bitch sometimes, can’t it? It can downright suck at times. We’ve all been there! And there are ways to shift your outlook deliberately so that you can feel better.

Do you have any rituals that you do? One of mine every year is to review in my old journals to see where I was in the previous years. The majority of the time it puts me into a state of gratitude to NOT be where I was before!

As March is my birthday month, I recently did this activity. I found the date when I was able to define my purpose statement of bringing joy to the world—on March 22, 2011! That was on the spring equinox eight years ago. That has put me on a trajectory that I couldn’t even imagine at that time! Life is like that!

Here are 5 Tips that help shift how you look at life and to gain clarity…

1. The Reverse Gap

So often we are focused on the future that we forget to appreciate the small things of each and every day. There is a gap between where you are and where you want to be. When you look back, it brings you to a place you can feel grateful for today. This act of looking back is a strategy called the reverse gap. It helps you to find joy right now with where you are at the moment.

2. Your Personal Purpose

Figure out why you are here! Why were you born? What special gifts and talents do you have to share with the world? I often say that discovering your personal purpose is the most significant inner work you can do for yourself. It helps to steer your path from that point on. And it also helps you to appreciate the entire journey that you have been on so far!

3. Practice Compassion Not Judgment

Everything that we experience in our lives is unique to each and every one of us. This is why it is so important not to judge others—because we simply do NOT know their path! Find ways to have compassion for others as we are all on a challenging journey! Be a conscious creator of your life and know that your thoughts and feelings affect not only you but also others around you. So refuse to be toxic by judging others but rather spread love through compassion.

4. Reframe Your Challenges

Once you can look at the challenges and the hard times of your life as big learning experiences that have helped you to grow in immense ways, it helps to alleviate some of the pain from those times. I’ve never heard anyone say that they didn’t learn something from their challenges and more often than not, people have grown more than they ever thought possible. Eventually you can find ways to be grateful for those challenges. It might be tough when you’re in the thick of it, but know that this too shall pass!

5. Find Your Sense of Direction

Knowing your personal purpose gives you a sense of direction and clarity. It helps to make sense of the madness of your life previously—you know all those crazy turns and decisions where you wonder later on why the heck did I do that? And it helps you to make solid decisions going into the future. You can discover that there is a red thread running through your entire life. And it helps you have clarity going into the future when you do have that sense of direction to guide you.

Using rituals or taking the time to just think or journal can offer that simple pause in life—where you consciously take a moment to appreciate where you are right now.

In this crazy busy world we live in, I think these are some of the best ways to stay sane and on track! What are some of the rituals, habits, or activities that keep you moving forward?

Being Inspired by the Phases of Life

As I am leaving my youngest to attend University on the other side of the planet, I’m feeling a bit nostalgic and have been reflecting over my five decades and how there are so many different phases we go through in life.

I see my young daughters entering their twenties filled with hope, dreams, and goals for the future. They have their whole lives ahead of them and are filled with confidence but also a sense of trepidation of heading into the unknown. I remember those times very well and felt the same way. I’ve read that our brains are fully developed at 25 and after that age is when we tend to get our stuff together and become mature adults. And your relationship to your children will change at that time.

Recalling my thirties, it was all about having babies and raising young children. There wasn’t much free time for myself as I was focused on providing a good life for my family. I often talk to young moms and tell them to enjoy their babies and young children while they can because it goes by so fast!

In my forties, my life was about balancing career, getting “ahead,” and still very much focused on my family, but dealing with different problems that come along with the teenage years. It has been a pretty turbulent time with lots of ups and downs, twists and turns.

As I’m heading into my fifth decade now, with children leaving home to venture out into the world, I suddenly find I have much more time for myself. Running a women’s executive network has also shown me that many women at this age actually step into their power. They no longer have all their focus on their children and have a lot of energy to use all their experience to make a positive impact in the world.

And I am watching and learning from friends in their sixties as they are witnessing their young adult children finding their way, make their marks in the world, and especially the miracle of grandchildren. They are so enjoying this stage of life!

The one thing I’ve learned is that you must enjoy each phase of life as it comes. Be aware that it will change eventually so be as present as you can now in each stage.

I am so grateful I was able to take the time to help get my daughter settled into her new home far away from home. I’m so proud of both of my daughters and how they are venturing out into adulthood. And I see the cycle about to repeat as well with them. From my perspective now, it’s time to be there in the background supporting them if they need it and also cheering them on to find their brilliance in their own way.

Life is truly what we make of it. Yes, there are immense challenges at times but when we can see how we grow and learn from these, it gives us a sense of accomplishment to know we can handle whatever is thrown our way. Enjoy each phase of your life! Because once it’s gone, it’s gone. Be inspired by where you are now…and make the most of it while you can!

17 Steps to Surviving The Great Awakening

Something is going on with our world….can you feel it? On the outside it looks chaotic and can be frightening. But on the inside there is a shift happening…and it’s happening to individuals, societies, and to Gaia. People are thinking differently, acting differently. The Earth is going through as much change as we are. Science is showing how energetic fields are changing.

Of course, it also depends on where you are putting your focus. If you are watching the mainstream news, you’d think the world was going to hell. But when you talk to people, listen to how they are thinking, and seeing how people are actually taking back their power, you get a totally different perspective!

What I see out there is that the majority of the people are sick and tired of war, hate, anger, etc. Most people want to live in peace. We are connecting more and more globally and realizing that people can be different and still live in peace!

I was recently in Sarajevo and I was shown how Muslims, Catholics, Orthodox, and Jews can all live and worship in the same 200 meter city block and be peaceful. It’s a matter of respect and compassion for each other as human beings first and allowing people to follow what is right for them.

I often hear now the term “The Great Awakening” and I think this is referring to the raising of human consciousness, this global shift we are experiencing. We are learning our power that we have within us—and how we’ve been controlled over the centuries.

In my own journey and pursuit of Truth, I’ve gone through so much information, trying to understand what is actually true. This is not a journey for the light hearted! I will continue on this path as I truly hope we are learning to come together as ONE, that we come from a place of love and compassion, and that we take a stand against what I would definitely consider an evil force on this planet. I hope these steps help you as well. The bottom line is that we are all in this together. Let’s work together to make our world an incredible and beautiful place!

  1. Know that there is a much bigger divine plan at work—this goes far beyond the physical plane.
  2. Remember the good guys win! Keep your hope strong!
  3. Divided we fall, united we win. Their worst fear is for us to figure out the truth. Love your fellow humans and have compassion for those who are most lost in the lies. Stick together in the pursuit of truth!
  4. The Truth will set us free! As hard as it may be accept some of this, we must collectively be aware of the atrocities in order to heal the world.
  5. There are many more victims than perpetrators and they need our help. And many of the perpetrators were raised in this horrible environment—some may be saved, many cannot. There is also a huge number that have been blackmailed and controlled—thinking there was no way out.
  6. Take time to find your balance – when you read some of the awful shit that has been going on, take it in small doses and then reconnect to what is important in your life—the love of your family, friends, the beauty of nature, etc.
  7. You’re going to have to unlearn–and relearn–probably most of what you think is true now. Be open-minded and question everything. Learn to trust your own instincts and discernment.
  8. The whole world has been lied to and manipulated—not for the good of humanity but for the good of the elite—you’ve been playing a fixed game that hasn’t been in your favor! And unfortunately we’ve trusted those who were doing the most harm!
  9.  Remember that 99.999% of humanity is GOOD! We all want love, peace, joy and abundance.
  10.  Only .001% are the psychopaths who have been in control of the world’s systems. That is changing as you read this!
  11.  There’s going to be a LOT of chaos as the systems fall. This is a necessary part of the process…
  12.  And there’s a HUGE amount of opportunity to help build a new world! Think about your passions and how you can contribute to making the world a better place!
  13.  Once the bad guys have been rounded up and stopped, we’re going to enter into a time of a great renaissance!
  14.  Detox your body, your mind, and your environment to the best of your ability. Stop eating poison. Stop watching TV. Get off constant social media. Get out in nature. Connect in person with friends and loved ones. Do things you love!
  15.  Keep your own energy and feelings high. Finding peace in your world helps to create peace in everyone’s world. Focus on love and peace.
  16.  Visualize peace on Earth! Our minds and imagination are our most powerful tools! Let’s use them collectively for good!
  17.  We’ve all chosen to be alive at this time! So embrace the global shift and do your part to help in whatever ways you feel called to. We are all a part of this Great Awakening!

The Joy of Giving

As the holidays are rapidly approaching, we tend to get wrapped up in the busy-ness of the times, rushing around with all the activities, meetings, parties, shopping, and cooking.  Rather than the materialistic perspective, we should be taking some time to take stock of our lives, to feel the gratitude for all the blessings we have in our lives.  No matter what your circumstances are, there are always things you can be grateful for in your life.  Appreciation is a way of giving thanks to our higher Source.

The Law of Giving is one of the fundamental laws of the Universe.  What most people may not realize is that giving is a cycle.  In order to give, you must receive.  And in order to receive, you must also give.  I do not believe we are taught to receive very well.  If someone gives you a compliment like “I love your new haircut,” do you shrug it off or try to dismiss it because you get embarrassed by the attention and say something like, “Oh, I can’t stand my hair, it‘s never how I like it.”  Or sometimes we feel obligated to return the compliment.  That would be OK, if we meant it…but do we really?

Giving is something that needs to come from the heart.  When you do, you do not have any sort of expectation.  You give for the pleasure of giving and making someone else happy.  My daughter recently asked me what was the best Christmas memory I had.  I thought about it for a while and then told her it was when I had given my daughters their handmade quilts.  I had taken their baby clothes and started cutting squares in February of that particular year.  I worked on making these quilts off and on all year and my daughters even helped with a part of it.  I was hand sewing everything until in Nov when I was able to borrow a sewing machine.  Then it went much faster.  I stayed up late several nights to get them done after the girls had gone to bed so they wouldn’t see them.

Considering I had never made a quilt before in my life, these were definitely labors of love!  My daughters eyes glowed when they opened those quilts and even though they got plenty of toys, those quilts were their favorite presents that year.  My daughter’s each slept with “mommy’s quilt” for most of their young lives (and now that they are older, they have saved them for their future children!) I had told them that first night they slept with them that these special quilts were just like me hugging them all night long.  Of course, the mommy quilts became even more significant when we were separated for 1400 days.  My daughters were snuggled in my love every night through those quilts.

The best presents are the ones that come from the heart.  We assume it needs to be material objects but what about our love, a hug, tell someone how much they mean to you in a nice letter or card, give someone your encouragement or faith or trust.  Think about this as the holidays approach.  What has been the best present you’ve ever given, or received, and why?  And what can you give this year that will make a difference with those you love?
