Listening: Angels are Talking

With some down time and the recent holiday with family I gained fresh insight about the benefits of listening.  As I focused less on business and more on health and family I found I had even more opportunity for listening. The listening I am speaking of is the listening which takes place when we commune with Spirit/Divinity/God.  Spiritual listening is about taking the time to calm, focus and listen to our Higher Self. This type of listening has also been a topic many have recently talked about during classes and coaching sessions. In our present state of experiencing higher frequencies as we move into a higher dimension many are “hearing” the call to listen. Some individuals hear their name called and find no one in the physical is calling them. Others hear sounds such as tapping or knocking and find no one (in the physical) is there. Considering these statements and discussing the situations most individuals experience enlightenment when they recognize it is very likely their Higher Self is trying to speak. In these discussions I defined a few key tips about listening to our Divinity/God.

Focusing on the NOW and living in the moment for as little as 15 minutes while coming from that place of self acceptance and love will set the stage for quiet time. Affirmations such as, “I am peace; I am safe,” may help you feel safe when opening your heart to hear what your Higher Self/Spirit has to say. Take time to really feel this as you begin to relax.

If you experience what we often call monkey mind – that endless chatter within – relax as you look at these thoughts and then release them. Recently, while meditating and listening I came up with a great idea for a post on facebook – that is an example of monkey mind. I let the thought come and go and then I went back to breathing and my affirmation. I turned my focus to how I felt and the energy surrounding me.

Three tips on listening:

  • Be open to listening; Allow Self to hear the loving guidance and messages from Spirit/God/Goddess
  • Create a space where you feel safe, protected and peaceful. Use an affirmation you like which makes you feel safe.
  • Relax and allow the monkey mind thoughts to come and go – look at them and release them. Turn your focus to what you are feeling – the energy; the emotions

Just as we build a habit to “speak from the heart” we have the ability to build a habit to “listen with the heart”. Taking small intervals of time and meditating we have the opportunity to tune in and listen. Ask Spirit/Divinity/God to speak to you; you are ready to listen. In this state we are opening ourselves to be guided, directed and loved.

Permission: The Rewards of Allowing

This week I was not feeling well and fought the inclination to keep moving.  There is always so much to do and I began to be concerned about missed opportunities if I chose to take the time to rest and heal.  It did not take long for me to decide on my action.  I gave myself permission to take time and allow my body to heal.  It seemed as though giving myself permission was a turning point.  I immediately felt a weight had been lifted; I relaxed into the thoughts of healing and getting some sleep.

I have been finding out more and more the rewards of allowing my life and the world around me to unfold.  It is a habit which, in the beginning, takes some focus and effort however, the rewards are great.  When I began to develop this habit I noticed that as soon as I thought of allowing, my shoulders relaxed, then my entire body.  It is as though the responsibility of self judgment and judging others disappears and in its place is the knowing that all is as it should be.  As I continued to bring allowing into my life I noticed feelings of happiness, love and inner joy sprang into my being as soon as I let go of the negative feelings of self-denial, judging and control.

Permission and allowing are synonymous – closely related in meaning.  Often one word is more powerful than the other.  For me, in this instance, saying, “This is okay, Angel – you have your permission to stop and heal,” was very powerful.
So, I wanted to relay to you the fantastic rewards of allowing, giving permission, for your life to unfold.
  • Stress disappears, the body relaxes
  • An awareness of living in the present moment comes into focus
  • Emotions switch over to positive; seeing the possibilities takes place
  • Desires begin to pop into reality

What was my desire?  I wanted to let go and allow time for healing. I wanted to feel well, wanted someone to take care of me and wanted some assistance with healing.  All of these things came into my reality!  I appreciate you all for sending your love and healing.

Manifesting: Joyously Creating

This week I held my first class on Manifesting Your Desires and it was very successful.  I wanted to share some of the highlights with you.

Manifesting is all about the Law of Attraction.  What you think and feel is your reality.  You create every moment of your existence and you – and only you – have the ability to change what you are creating.

Stay in your own energy and set boundaries to help you control what is unfolding around you.  Understand that everyone around you is manifesting their own realities.

Let go of the negative and fearful thoughts and emotions in your life.  You choose your emotions.  Ask yourself, “Is this a negative thought or an intuition?” Act on it or release it – with love.  Bring emotions such as love, joy and bliss into your reality.  Build a habit of living in joy and looking for the positive.  Practice the art of allowing.  Allow life to unfold around you as you allow others to create their own reality.

Focus on, “What do I really want?” When you are ready to manifest the physical or material things you desire, give it to the Universe in great joy!  The Universe will immediately begin to make it happen.  Understand you may have to take action to bring your manifestation into reality.  For instance, if you desire a better job or new career, it may be wise to begin networking, job searches or a return to education.

Keep a Gratitude Journal and write down the things that you appreciated during the day.  You know, I discovered writing is too much like work so it does not happen regularly however, speaking aloud is very powerful.  As I fall asleep I give appreciation out loud.  When I awake I am full of appreciation and joy.  It is a new day with more joy and more to appreciate.

Live in the present – BE in the NOW.  Take meditation breaks, nature walks or other activities that keep you focused on the present.  Appreciate your life in the now.

Expect your manifestations to come into your reality.  Daydream about what your desires and add details.  Expect it as though it is already there and feel the joyous emotions of what you have created.

Like a child, be excited and have fun with it.  I would love to have your come to the next Manifesting Your Desires class.

Cicadas Song Becomes Confirmation

I went to Prescott this last week for some “me” time.  I wanted to get away from all the electronics and spend time in nature.  Even with this in mind I took along my computer.  Although Wi-Fi was available I could not get on the internet.  I laughed a little knowing I was there to get away from what I actually brought along!  With the internet excluded I found other little things to do.
As I made my way through this time I began to realize I did not have to push so hard in my day to day life and taking some quiet time was beneficial.  I slowed my pace, felt more in balance and connected to nature.  I spoke to the Cicadas that at times were quite loud.  I spoke to them about “being” as they are; to exist in the moment, to grow and be in nature.  I felt the Cicadas song was just for me – a song of confirmation that quiet time is healing.  Watch the video and listen to their beautiful song!
When I returned to the city and came back on line I realized I did not miss anything.  I discovered I had greater clarity and focus.  Many of my manifested desires seemed to pop all around me.

My experience is similar to what just happened to a friend of mine.  She accidentally locked herself out of her house and onto the patio.  When she told me about it she said the experience forced her into a quiet time.  She relaxed, meditated and spent time loving her plants and surrounding trees.

Spending quiet time has so many benefits!  Whether you meditate, spend time in nature, manifest or BE in the moment, the quiet brings balance, peace, inner joy, introspection and the answer to our desires.

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!

“Adopt the pace of nature. Her secret is patience.”  ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
