Each of us has Spirit Guides, and your Guide may be a person or an animal. As the situations in your life change, you may attract new guides to help you. Your Spirit Guides can help you with every aspect of your life, all you have to do is ASK! If you can think of a question, your Spirit Guides will give you an answer. Here are some tips for connecting with your Spirit Guides:
Find a quiet, comfortable place where you will not be disturbed. Stretch, relax, and breathe to relax and release any accumulated tension or stress. Do this for at least three minutes, or as much as necessary to achieve a state of relaxation.
Set your spiritual intent to contact your spirit guide, and open up your awareness to their presence. You may see them, feel their presence, hear them communicating, or somehow just know they are there. Say “hello” and allow yourself to receive a “hello” back.
Relax, breathe and just be in their presence. Without speaking, ask your spirit guide if they have a message for you. If you have a question, remember to be very clear and focused on whatever situation you want help with. Be still and allow yourself to receive their spiritual communication. Just be…and listen.
When you end your connection, always give thanks to your Spirit Guide with a sense of gratitude for their help.
Have faith in knowing that if you ask for guidance, or for a sign, it will always be given. But you must be open to receiving the message in any form. Remember that your Spirit Guides are always around you ready to help, but they cannot and will not interfere with your life. Youmust first invite them in, ask for their guidance and they will be happy to help you in any way they can.
Connecting with your Spirit Guides begins a wonderful relationship that will last your entire life. So if you haven’t yet met, now might be an excellent time to introduce yourself!

Celebrate! Celebrate with joy! How do you celebrate?
Celebration! People all over the world take the opportunity to celebrate everything and anything. Celebrations can last just a few moments to days or weeks. The celebration of a small accomplishment can be in the form of a “high five”. The Chinese New Year celebration is more than two weeks. There are celebrations that range from the traditional to the unusual. Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving are examples of traditional celebrations. April Fool’s Day and Halloween are unusual yet popular. The variety of religious or spiritual celebrations abounds world-wide and is present in most cultures. Celebrating, whether it’s for fun or to give honor, is loved by all.
No matter how your spirituality is structured you may have traditional ways to celebrate your belief. The question this week is: How do you celebrate your beliefs?
Viewpoint 1: I celebrate my beliefs by living them. Even though my beliefs are quite different from my friends and family we celebrate our beliefs by coming together while respecting each other. This creates agreeable conditions where we can all celebrate with joy and love on any given holiday.
Viewpoint 2: I spend time with family and friends. Also, I like to take time with Mother Nature. For me, being in nature is really important when celebrating who I am and what I believe.
I celebrate by taking some time to meditate and celebrate my spirituality. I also go to see my family where a big part of the celebration is the dinner. When children are involved I like to do some type of activity with them which involves celebrating our beliefs.
However you celebrate your beliefs, celebrate knowing you are loved. If you don’t feel loved, know that I love you!
New Year’s resolutions are commitments people make to themselves to improve or change their lives in the coming year. These are often forgotten during the first couple months of the year. Using the Law of Attraction and Manifesting is taking your resolutions to a higher level.
The Law of Attraction explains that our thoughts vibrate or radiate a signal and attracts a matching signal back. Whether the signal is positive or negative we will attract likewise. The Universe is fully available to us and our desires when we are open to receive. Manifestation is the belief that stating desires and focusing energy will bring our thoughts, or radiating signals, into physical reality. There are various ways to practice manifesting such as meditation, affirmations or speaking to your Higher Self or Source.
Some tips for turning resolutions into successful manifestations are:
State your intention – your spoken words are powerful. Be positive!
Be specific – State exactly what you desire. Visualize what you want to create.
Practice gratitude – Live is gratitude for what you presently have as well as for what is to come.
Release your desires and intentions to the Universe. Allow the energies of the Universe to work mysteries and bring your intentions to fruition.
Have faith – Know you have been heard. Accept that your desires will be achieved with Divine timing.
Be patient – Relax! Enjoy your life knowing you have taken steps to successfully create your physical and spiritual desires.
During the time of Winter Solstice you may have looked back at 2011 to see how you expressed your manifestations in the recent past. Remember you create your life; you are limitless! As you become dedicated to your spirituality and surrender yourself to your higher self or God, you will begin to manifest for a greater spiritual understanding. Trust and accept that your material desires will be met.
In the material world where we exist together, what do you wish to create? In the connection of Spirit to your physical body, what will you manifest for your spiritual longings?
