KNOW limits versus NO LIMITS!

When we were a child we understood anything was possible and yet were not desperate for anything to happen.
We went to bed to rest not to worry.
We got up filled with peace and certainty that  a new magical day was unfolding. 
We understood that we would take each moment as it came.  
We understood that each moment could change drastically and yet we would go with the flow. 

We controlled nothing (we still don’t) and yet we spend so much of our time trying to or being frustrated because we can’t. 
When things go wonderfully we congratulate ourselves for working hard and orchestrating our success.
When things go poorly we berate our selves and wonder where we went wrong and spend much time trying to understand what we could have done better.

When things go wonderfully for us a child we are happy and grateful and when things go poorly we are disappointed … and then that moment passes and we move on to the next moment and the next - there is no blame or self recrimination... just a 'getting on with things'.  

What changed?  (Here's 'THE WHY')

As we grew older, we were blamed for certain situations and so we grew to know blame.
We saw blame shifted, we saw guilt and as we witnessed it - we also grew a sense of it, we grew to know it. We grew to experience it. 

When disappointments happened or hurtful situations,  we decided that we were going to do whatever it takes to make sure that this situation doesn’t happen again.  In a massive effort to try to control things… we placed a limit there.  We KNEW LIMITS.
"I won’t be in this type of relationship again because it hurts when I do"
"I won’t speak in public anymore because someone might make fun of me"
"I won’t go to university because I did poorly in a subject in high school and it made me feel so badly about my scholastics, I just don’t have what it takes, I am stupid."

Our inner child always stays strong because the inner child knows NO LIMITS. 
Anything is possible.
There is no such thing as control for any situation.  
Simply going along the flow of life while acting with the best of intentions and staying IN THE MOMENT, open to opportunities;  ensures all the best comes our way!

What does an Angel Light message and Taylor Swift have in common? SHAKE IT OFF!

I am a very big fan of Taylor Swift - actually, to be more accurate I am a very big fan of MUSIC and the healing and inspiring qualities of music.
Simply listening to music can be healing and strengthening in so many ways....ANY music! My playlists include  Taylor Swift,    ACDC,    Tchaikovsky,   Brian Adams,   Imagine Dragons,   Mozart,   One Republic ...among others. When you are choosing your varied! There are as many artists and genres in music as there are different sides of your Self, your Soul and your moods. Enjoy them all!

However, this particular piece ~ SHAKE IT OFF ~  is standing out to me as the message in the lyrics is particularly strong AND the message is one that (those that KNOW ME, know this) I tend to 'dwell on'.

Also, those that know me know that I love to dance....and sing (even though my teenage boys have begged me not to!).   Every now and then I get an email/phone call/text message from someone saying "Hey, I saw you in your car at corner of blank and blank and you were dancing!! and it looked like you were singing!"  and I message back with "oh no, I have bluetooth in the car and I was more than likely talking animatedly on the phone"  and I receive ", no - definitely dancing, I couldn't mistake those finger snaps and 'shoulder shuffles' at the red light and as I drove past....I think you may have had your sunroof open...was that Taylor Swift's SHAKE IT OFF I heard?"

and I answer, 'Yes, it more than likely was :) I listen to it all the time!  In fact, I share it with my clients as my most recent Energy tip.  Dancing, 'moving without purpose'! most definitely increases energy in our Sacral chakra which in turn increases our EMOTIONAL FREEDOM!  Why wouldn't everyone dance every time they had the chance?

This reduces the effect of other people's opinions and (possibly unwanted/negative) energies on us....and INCREASES OUR OWN SENSE OF FREEDOM AND  PERSONAL ENERGY.

Increasing our energy doesn't have to be difficult or complicated.  Just dance!

HOWEVER, THIS PARTICULAR SONG..... has an Angel when the song is playing (and the link is at the end of the post if you want to bring these messages to life within you...maybe do a few finger snaps or shoulder shuffles...maybe go for a drive with the sunroof open?!!  :)
This is how the Angels interpret the lyrics of 'Shake it off'.

I stay up too late
Got nothing in my brain
That's what people say
That's what people say
Angels: people underestimate me...but I believe in me - and my Angels believe in me
I go on too many dates
But I can't make them stay
At least that's what people say
That's what people say
Angels: other people's opinions don't matter to me, I do the right thing for my Self & others 
But I keep cruising
Can't stop, won't stop moving
It's like I got this music
In my mind, saying it's gonna be alright
Angels: Life goes on, I keep moving forward and my Angels tell me I am on the RIGHT path -  'All is well'
Cause the players gonna play,play,play
and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate
Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off 
Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break
and the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake
Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off, Shake it off
Angels: Other people will do as they are meant to.  If I disagree, then I will note that -however I  will continue to do what I NEED TO DO and are MEANT TO DO.  I will not let their energies drag me down....I am MOVING FORWARD. I will 'shake it off'
I never miss a beat
I'm lighting up my feet
and that's what they don't see
That's what they don't see
Angels: Even if I am not receiving appreciation for my efforts, I know I am doing well.
I'm dancing on my own
I make the moves up as I go
And that's what they don't know
That's what they don't know
Angels: Even though sometimes I feel I don't have much support in the physical world,  I listen to my own intuition.  I 'forget the plan and stay in the moment'. This is bringing me forward. 

hey, hey, hey
Just thing while you been getting down and out about the liars 
and the dirty dirty cheats of the world
you could have been getting down to this sick beat
Angels: You can CHOOSE to listen to negativity or positivity.  Only ONE of those choices will BRING YOU FORWARD. 

Angel messages come in so many different ways.  Our Angels need to REACH US ALL and so they find all different types of venues for us to be able to connect with them....and more importantly for them to be able to connect with us!  

LISTEN to your Angel messages happening around you every moment in every day and feel their gentle, nurturing messages that will comfort you when you are in need.  Also, feel their powerful messages designed to invite you to action in the areas of your life action is needed.  

Most importantly, feel your Angels around you always.   To listen to this powerful (and FUN!) song ... CLICK HERE AND RECEIVE YOUR ANGEL MESSAGE....(but you know you need to dance to receive it, right?!  :)  
Sending Angel Light your way!

Why should I meditate?

Why should I meditate?
Well, many days I used to find myself thinking about how 'crazy' my day is, about how the days (weeks/months/YEARS!) are slipping by so quickly and yes, even how I DON'T HAVE TIME to do anything.  So when people used to suggest that I meditate a little piece of my mind internally would do a little explosion as I stared at them incredulously....Are they not listening? Are they not hearing me??!   I DON'T HAVE TIME and they want to FIND MORE TIME..... to SIT?

So, let's say I do find this time (I remember thinking in my mind). So, I light some candles and put on some soft music, close my eyes, take some deep breaths ..... and then watch my mind whir away ticking off all of the things I have yet to do today (tomorrow, next week) and feel my frustration level rising as I know that at this moment...I am wasting time....THAT I DON'T HAVE.

Yes, very helpful.

OK SO I GET IT takes a bit of a leap of faith to begin HOWEVER (were you waiting for this?) once you get on to a regular practise of meditating....your time windows begin to open up.  Your perceptions shift and you realize that some of the things that you were doing could be delegated or dropped from your schedule altogether. How does this happen?  Through the practise of is MAGICAL!

First, unfortunately you may have to get to where I was at.  I described my first thoughts of meditation and THEN I got to the point where life was whirring away so quickly and my energy and emotions were lower than low and there just didn't seem to be enough energy to even get through today - let alone tomorrow....I had nothing to lose and potentially everything to gain by trying!
*and I know that when you are meant to try something, you are not meant to try it once or twice and then expect to see results - you must commit for at least a month and then you can truly see and FEEL RESULTS!

So, I did.  I tried guided meditations on Youtube and then added in some walking meditations where I repeated some affirmations while walking outside and even tried some group meditations.

The results were fantastic....albeit gradual.  The change within me was so incremental that I didn't really notice it for the first few weeks and even after a couple of months, I thought the change had been minimal ... although I kept at it because - I liked it.  I liked the actual process of making a conscious decision that for the next 15 mins (30mins, 60mins whatever I felt I could give to it that day) I was going to simply breathe and NOT WORRY about future or FRET about past this moment all that existed was this moment.  FREEING!

The people around me certainly noticed a change however AND I noticed a change in the people around me.  I  found that interesting as well.  I was 'throwing out' some peaceful and powerful energy to the people around me and they were reflecting it back to me!

After I finished my meditation, my mind was clearer and I felt more peaceful and calm.....STRONGER and more able to move forward in a steady motion (unlike the frenetic and harried mindset I had been in before I began my meditation practice)

This was years and years ago and today I host guided meditations and love the energy that surrounds when a group gets together to increase their energy, become stronger on all levels and!

So, I guess the real question is...
Why SHOULDN'T you meditate!

Treat yourSelf to an energy BOOST and start meditating today!
