Patience: Allowing Life to Unfold

We have all experienced times where our patience runs thin. We tense up and may even become aggressive in words or actions. The best example of this is the lack of patience we see while driving. Drivers may seem to become entirely different people when they are rushing to complete errands or make appointments on time. Sometimes these situations are comical however, they show a lack of focus on remaining calm and practicing patience.

I am occasionally an impatient person myself! When this happens I feel the energy building and surging without an outlet. The tone of my voice changes and I begin to lose focus on allowing life to unfold. My inner self tells me to seek calm while my mind is racing ahead. I work with myself to bring back the calm. I stop and think some key thoughts and take actions which give me the ability to become patient. Allowing, whether with myself or others brings on a calm where practicing patience becomes effortless. The following are a few tips on how to stand in your power yet practice patience.

  • Take inventory of your energy. Where does yours end and others begin? Grounding and centering yourself might make an immediate difference.
  • Ask yourself, “How can I help” or “Do I need to step in and help?” Helping others to improve a situation, without judging, may bring everyone back into focus and the practice of patience.
  • How are you feeling? If you are feeling stressed and know you are losing your patience you may find that stopping to take some deep breaths will  bring about focus, generate positive thoughts and allow calm to come in. The “Toilet Exercises” are always helpful!

So, breathe and allow! You will be amazed as life unfolds around you as you practice mindfulness and joy!

Spiritually: The Meaning of 7 and 8 [video]

Celebrating life is one of the joys we all have the ability to create. Sure, we all hook up on Facebook and we know, in general, how all our friends are doing. However, virtual contact and communication is no replacement for seeing, communicating and fellowshipping in person. Celebrating life with others is healthy! Recent studies show that social interaction boosts health and may be a positive factor in extending a life of health.

I will be celebrating 7 years of success as Lightworkers Gifts and Energy Healing Center.  This celebration – a wondrous party – is my gift to you in appreciation for the love and support you have given so freely.

Seven years!  The spiritual essence of the 7 is about reflection on the spiritual nature of things; investigating, analyzing and intuiting of inner wisdom.  It is about the quest to discover the inner landscape of life in relationship to higher truths.  This has been so true when I consider what Lightworkers Gifts brought to the community.  It really states what my desires have been, not only for myself but for all those who came into my life during the last 7 years.  I feel so blessed with gifts and talents which have a positive impact to those who enter my life!

Coming into the eighth year, I am excited about all the possibilities and opportunities!  Spiritually, the number 8 is charged with the responsibility of working with integrity to build a world of the future, aligned with higher consciousness and serving all humankind.  At the highest level, the 8 may be one of materializing wealth, following a path of power, achievement and success.

Your gift to me is to come and celebrate the success of Lightworkers Gifts! Come join us for healing, inspiration, presentations and drumming – come and have fun! Party Party!

Everyone’s Symbol is Different – What’s Your Symbol?

“For every step you take towards God, God takes 100 steps towards you.” When I think of this phrase, stated by the Dalai Lama, I think of consciously taking those steps while God/Spirit steps a hundred fold towards me. When we are conscious of the existence and presence of the Divine, we are taking a conscious step towards God/Divine/Spirit.


All traditional religions have their own symbols and images that are meant to help us be conscious of the Divine. Some of them are the crucifix (Christian), images of Nataraja Shiva, Ganesha, or Kali (Hindu), the yin-yang symbol (Taoist), images of Buddha (Buddhist), images of Kachinas (Native American), the Mezuzah (Jewish), and the Ankh (Egyptian).

The steps of becoming conscious of the Divine are perhaps the most important piece of our evolution. What do you have in your home or office that helps keep you conscious of the existence and presence of your Divinity?

Power! Confidence! Balance! Setting Boundaries

In my practice I have found that people do not understand boundaries and many do not have boundaries. Personal boundaries are guidelines, rules or limits that people create to identify, for themselves, what are reasonable, safe and permissible ways for other people to behave around them. Boundaries include how an individual will respond when someone steps outside those limits. They are built out of a mix of beliefs, opinions, attitudes, past experiences and social learning.

Personal boundaries define you as an individual, outlining your likes and dislikes, and setting the distances you allow others to approach. They include physical, mental, psychological and spiritual boundaries, involving beliefs, emotions and intuitions.

When setting my boundaries it is a way of loving and caring for myself. I found that the boundaries I set in my life play a key role in successful, healthy relationships with others. My boundaries also help me manage my daily life. For instance, when someone I know calls me, they might hear me say I have so many minutes to talk and we may or may not need to talk later. When we discuss it we might go ahead and set up a good time for a call back.  When people visit my home I am very open about my boundaries. I let others know where to find extra water, snacks, the bathroom location and more depending on the situation.

The following are a few good tips on setting boundaries.

  • Know your likes and dislikes; know yourself
  • Identify boundaries you wish to set
  • Tell others
  • Stick to the boundaries you set.

Other people want to know your boundaries. It helps them feel comfortable around you and it urges them to honor your boundaries. When people know and communicate their boundaries everyone benefits. Interested in learning more about boundaries?

Daily Pratices for More Joy

These are three good practices I use daily. Making these a part of my life has brought more excitement and joy into my life experiences.

  1. Letting go of control: Realizing that we are not in control over the events that take place in our life helps us let go of the attachments to the outcome.  By changing your thought patterns you may reduce stress and worry about how all the details are going to play out. When you realize you are pushing, pushing, pushing – Stop, relax, breathe and let go.
  2. Accept that you are amazing! From the moment you awaken, smiling and bringing up your energy, release the limiting beliefs of your past self. Create a fabulous new you every morning.  Always remember and give yourself permission to be amazing.
  3. Human – yes, you are! Mistakes are going to happen. People feelings are going to get hurt and you will sometimes feel hurt also. Give yourself a break! Be forgiving, compassionate and loving to yourself.

If these resonate with you, write key words on a piece of paper and tape it to your mirror. First thing each morning, review your key words and practice them until they become a part of who you are because you are amazing!
