This is so brilliant! We never have to settle, but it’s not the framing of settling that you might think. We are so powerful in our ability to “create” or “manifest” in our life that using these tools can shift whole situations – and the situations need not be messy. We stay connected to our Spirit Team & Source, share from the Heart, do the “work” the JOGs describe and Spirit/the path of our Destiny takes care of the rest. So brilliant, so beautiful. Enjoy this!

There is something all of you need to know. It is something you often forget but of which serves you at the highest possible level. It is this core truth – you did not come here for anything less than your fullest desires. You see, many of you forget this and so you work as best as you can to make things, situations, and people work for you and acclimate to them when they are not actually the most aligned experiences of your life experience. You are trying to force, you are trying to make work that which really in its fullest expression is not even close to being aligned for you. You may make excuses for the person or opportunities or whatever it is – but at the core of you, you know you can do better.

And we are here to tell you, you can do better.

If there is anything in your life experience that is not matching up for you, that does not on all levels or cylinders feel like a big, fat yes, then there are some adjustments to be made.

Now typically, you would then say or feel that you must discard said opportunity, person or aspect and we say even taking that step is too premature. You are not even ready to go there yet. What you must first do is what Heather would call the alchemical process and what we would call only the “work” ever worth doing – preparing your vibration, your mindset, your body, your energies for the fullness of your desire.

Good enough will never do for any of you. “Almost” what you desire won’t work either. But you get impatient, you get antsy and so you dive in because well, some of you figure “it’s close enough”. And we’re telling you “close enough” will never fully satisfy you, it will always leave you longing for more.

It will always feel like something is missing, because something is missing. And not necessarily in the other person or in the opportunity – but in you.

Because you forgot the most important piece of information you could ever hope to know and that is that you are a Divine being and you do not have to ever receive less than your full desire. Nowhere in your life contract does it say, “settle for less than what you fully desire”. You forgot that you, you alone have the ability to shift yourself into circumstances and events and relationships that will yield to you your utmost desires. You and you alone have the ability to co-create a life that truly lights you up on all levels. And unless you’re doing that you are not living the fullest of this life experience.

Not settling does not mean adjusting your desires. It means aligning to your desires. And then holding to them so firmly that no matter who shows him/herself to you, no matter what opportunities arise, you hold steady in that knowing of what you truly desire and what is fully yours to experience. And this can be what you would describe as challenging especially if the person or situation or circumstance or relationship is not behaving in the way you fully desire it to in its current form.

But that is always going to be the case – there will always be something that needs some fine-tuning or adjustment but the fine-tuning or adjustment isn’t the person/place or thing – it’s you. It’s you consciously reconnecting back to what you truly desire and from that place re-aligning to what is truly you.

For example: In the midst of something not unfolding in the way you truly desire:

Go into meditation, journal, utilize whatever self-care tools put you into a good feeling place, an aligned place. Then, ask your guides & angels of the Highest Light (otherwise known as your Spirit Team) to make known to you what you desire in this particular area that is “up” for you. Allow whatever comes through or pops in to come in. And let us be clear here, you are not just awaiting someone (i.e. your Spirit Team/Source) to pop in the information for you, you are a cooperative, co-creative component here. You allow yourself to tune in and imagine what would be better than where you are at right now.

Then, once you lock into what that would be, you say with firmness and clarity and conviction, “I now call this into my experience. I now allow this to be my true reality.” And then you spend any time you would normally go into ruminating on the situation as it currently is and place that focused time and energy on what you aligned with in your more relaxed and open state.

When you have to interact with person/place/thing that is currently not in a state you desire, you call in your Spirit Team, you tap, you breathe deep breaths, you ask to see them through the eyes of Source and you walk into every encounter with them from that perspective, from that place. And you let what needs to occur to occur without your reactivity or interference or desire to control. Just try it out and see what happens.

And if it still doesn’t quite meet what you are intending, you just keep coming back to what would fill you up more. You come back to your truth and you never ever, ever allow yourself to settle for anything less than what feels most joyful to you.

What does it really mean that term settle anyway? It implies that it stops, that you stop and that when you stop it shouldn’t be on something that is just “okay”. Well, we’re here to tell you that you are on an eternal journey whether you are currently in the physical or non-physical and so what is most important is for you to have daily connection to what would light you up the most and spend conscious time with it, reflecting on it. And then as you make this a regular habit, fewer and fewer aspects of your life have to be off or out of balance or out of alignment as you would call them.

You do have the ability and support to discern what will fit you the best from where you currently are and then to adjust course first in your thought, first in your daydreams and then allow what wants to adjust and align from there to do so.

But you never ever have to sit in any situation or relationship or whatever it is and say, “this is mine, I just have to suck it up and deal with it.” No, you do not. In every moment and in every situation you have the opportunity to choose something that feels better to you. And sometimes that is going to be taking a nap or going for a walk or it’s going to be getting a mentor or taking a class or reading a book – but in every moment you can do something to shift the frequency of wherever you are at if it is not feeling good to you. And the harder it feels to do this is just information to let you know that you’ve got a lot of stories going on that are not letting you feel as magnificent as you truly are. And that’s okay. From that place you can decide how you want to proceed, you can decide what tools you need to engage to allow yourself a greater leap, a greater shift, a bigger vantage point to jump into.

We know you must think that we think that you are struggling too much, as we highlight these areas. But we know this is simply par for the course. This is part of being a Spirit in a body. It’s what you signed up for. And it’s what we signed up for to support you in this way, with these messages so that you need not go at it alone. So that you know with certainty that you are supported and loved and have a myriad of resources to living a life that truly serves you.

And so it is.

Okay, this is my favorite message yet – despite the fact that I also learned that my offerings will be changing even more so now.  Thanks guys. 😉 However, this practice is awesome. The JOGs have guided me and many of my clients to use it and it is so powerful. I love how they are empowering us to our best lives. Enjoy! Xo

When someone tells you something that feels awful to you, it affects you. It short circuits parts of your brain and activates other parts. It puts you in a response that is not of your Highest Light. And depending on your level of respect and trust for the other it can take you some time to work yourself out of whatever it is they have created in the dynamic between you.

This is why we encourage you to keep your awful feeling stories to yourselves. This is why we have guided Heather in her groups that only the Highest Light is to be shared. Because when not-aligned energy is shared, it proliferates. It simply creates more of that out into the world. And you have to ask yourself – is that what I want to put out into the world? Is that the contribution that I want to make to the planet?

Social media has been an interesting unfolding to witness. Some use it for the Highest Light, we admonished Heather from the very beginning that anything she posted had to have that frequency. And there are times when she would love to post a sarcastic comment out into the stratosphere because that’s the –we must share with you here sarcasm is not of the Highest Light although we know many enjoy it – place that she was in, but we would not let her. She is very clear as we have told her that what you put out into the world matters.

We talk about this ripple effect of positive alignment and the same is true with out-of-alignment-ness.

When you tell your awful feeling story to your loved ones, friends or to your therapist or to anyone – you are putting that story out into the world to ripple on. Healers that want to deal with not aligned energy can support you in diversifying that energy and re-appropriating it, but we still would not encourage it. And of course we would not encourage you to keep things inside of you for all of eternity because that will in turn only then harm your body. This is why the news is so damaging to so many, it’s in print, it’s in audio, it’s in video and it’s filled with a frequency of mis-alignment. Your Highest Self does not want to watch others proliferate the ripples of non-aligned actions and occurrences. And when it happens and when you do, the whole of the world is impacted by the mis-alignment.

So, we will bring it back to you – what is the solution /what do you do when you feel awful? Well, really there are so many wonderful things you can do, but we will give you our highest recommendations so you can convert mis-aligned energy into an aligned vibration, into the vibration of divine love – the most beneficial vibration to the planet.

If you feel awful, that is your first indicator that you have gotten out of alignment with who you really are. Maybe you know how this happened, maybe you don’t. No need to go back and try to figure it out or rehash anything. Just notice where you are at and acknowledge it. Then, get out whatever those feelings are that need to be released from within you. The best way we can say to do this is: write it out. Use your body to get rid of what is inside. Write a letter to the person who has allegedly harmed/wronged or made you angry or write a letter to no one in particular to tell the story and get it out. Go into all of the details and get it out. You’ll notice you feel awful-er still because you are bringing up, drudging up the non-alignment. Then, stop when you are finished and affirm that this is now fully out of you and you are ready to move on. Burn the sheet of paper – in a safe place, Heather wants us to admonish, she does not want to be responsible for any out of alignment burnings.

Tap Cortices she would add to re-align your vibration. Yes, that’s all fine.

Then move your body. You’ve got to shake off what you purged. It can be any form of exercise you are drawn to, and as you do it, imagine that you are shaking off this vibration that does not serve you as you move your body. Saging is always a very helpful practice in clearing the energy that has been brought up and needs to be fully released. We recommend doing this after you’ve burned the paper and after you’ve moved your body.

Then, when you talk to your loved ones you can let them know about what happened from a non-charged place and you can keep the details to the very minimum so that you are not polluting them or re-polluting yourself. Or perhaps not tell them anything at all. And you never, ever, ever, ever email about it or post about it on social media because then you are embedding forever more into consciousness this pollution. Can you see how over time there are layers of built-up non-alignment energy? Can you see how homes and offices and communities – online or in-person can become weighted down by non-aligned energy?

And what is it? It is merely sloppy emotions. Emotions that were not healthily processed that were instead projected that are getting stuck in environments. And it’s completely unnecessary. Sage your homes, open your windows, sage your offices and cars, open your windows, bring in high vibrating quartz crystals. Sage after every argument and disagreement. Take sea salt baths. All of these are ways to keep yourself re-aligned after mis-alignment.

Feel your emotions and release. Feel your emotions and release and then clean up where the mess had taken place. It’s like if you are cooking and make a mess or painting and make a mess – you clean it up.

It’s the same energetically and with your emotions. Over time, when these emotions build up they create energy fields of non-aligned energy and you can feel it when you walk into a room or a home or an office or a restaurant or any place of business or when you talk to someone who has not allowed themselves to feel and release their non-aligned energy. You intuitively will know and feel it. And you are not feeling anything “bad” – what you are feeling is non-aligned energy that is stuck.

All Spirit’s in a body will have moments of non-alignment. There is nothing to be ashamed of or worried about. However, what you do with it is everything. If you are having non-aligned dreams or day dreams or you don’t feel good most of the time – that is simply your indicator that you are in need of some alignment “work”. And your alignment work is your personal “job” so to speak. No one can do this for you.

This is why healing works for some and not others. Not everyone is receptive. Not everyone truly is ready to release their non-aligned states even though they may pay for sessions or ask for sessions. This is why Heather will be offering less and less “healing” sessions – what she is calling Soul Alignment sessions – and more and more of these messages of upliftment.

She is concerned and worried about how all of this will work of course and yet she cannot deny what she has seen over the years of operating a healing practice, and what we have shown here. It is always up to the individual. And these messages and the future offerings that we are guiding her to begin sharing will be the best path for those in greater and greater quantities to choose their alignment and to watch as they are able to shift for themselves through the practices they are given and the messages we provide.

JOGsMakeTheWorldBetterPlaceThe role of upliftment is really at the root of what it is needed and it is really at the heart of what Heather’s Highest Path and Purpose is. It is not for her to do for you what you can do for yourself and in fact what she “does” for you will not last long if you are not willing to fully accept and align to your Highest Self. And so, there are simpler ways to go about it. And there are ways that will lift you up and so many more higher in the offering of it.

We want you to know and accept and rejoice in the knowing that you are the key to your happiness. That you can choose to read these messages and tap in to these practices and you can receive alignment in ways that are so much more empowering to the core of who you really are. You all need one another to remind each other of who you really are and no doubt mentors and the like are important, but no one can nor ever will do it for you. And in this way we want you to embrace and accept this so that you can experience a grander version of your life than you have ever known.

We are complete.

I love the guidance from the JOGs to view everything from this perspective. What a life changer! I also love that this reminds us of what is truly true at the heart of every living thing. Would love to hear your comments and thoughts too! Enjoy! Xo

We love you very much. And it is with great compassion that we share with you our message today. We see many of you suffering unnecessarily and suffering at the hands of your own thoughts and we wish to set you free from this affliction. For it is only in your deepest connection with who you really are that you discover the truth of all. The truth of the Light of all, the truth that there is no thing on this planet than can ever harm or hurt you.

Now we can hear many of you protesting that you have been hurt or harmed or you feel hurt and harm and we know. We acknowledge that that has been your experience that you have observed and interacted with aspects of this life experience that have caused you great pain. We understand. And we want to expand your framework, expand the lens with which you are viewing this world so as to call forth what is most aligned with the highest frequency of who you really are, the highest frequency that is available to all of you on this planet and in this time and space.

You may have felt like or thought that “bad” things or people existed. And those beliefs about “badness” may be directly related to having experiences that felt like what you may call “bad” or “dark” or “wrong”. But we want you to lean in and listen carefully here as we tell you that those aspects were simply thought forms that were created by others. That as they were fed more and more energy they began to take on a life of their own and perpetuate what was uncomfortable or unwanted. So imagine if the thought forms that you give energy to are thought forms that expand you, that bring light into you and that despite what might be near or around you – you do not allow your thoughts to go anywhere else but to the Light. Imagine what happens then? What happens then is that those once seen as “bad” or untoward aspects no longer exist.

It is the focus that creates and summons what you do not desire to come into your experience. Now this is not meant in any way to create a means with which you can blame yourself. We will explain further. As young children, you did not conjure or dwell on harmful aspects. Yet the adults around you might have. And where you are currently, you may not have conjured up harmful aspects, but those around you might have. And there are all various levels of this. Heather is asking us repeatedly about this right now. Because she came from a background that believed in God (good) and the Devil (bad). And then she finds herself in a spiritual framework with healers and teachers that are saying something similar – that there must be dark if there is Light. And we say not true. Duality is simply another creation of the mind. Why ever would you think there has to be something “bad” or “wrong” to validate or justify what is Light?

And it is all perspective and perception anyway. One of you may view something as “good” and the other feels it is “bad”. The husband gets a big promotion and pay increase which he feels is “good” while the wife feels it’s “bad” because she views it as more stress and less time at home. Who is “right” here? Who is “wrong?” Who is to say what is “good” and what is “bad”? Really there is only that which feels aligned to the whole of who you are and that which does not. We would rather you threw out those “good” and “bad” labels altogether.

Yes, there can be all Light or what you would call “good” all of the time but it is up to you if that is where you choose to focus. It is up to you where you focus. And if you are having seemingly “not good” or “dark” or “bad” things coming into your experience, you get to ask yourself – do I choose to see this through the lens of “bad” or “wrong” or “dark”? Or can I view it as aligned or not aligned? And if someone is bringing me something “bad” or “dark” and they are wanting me to take it, like, “here, here is this thing that I do not want and you need to take it” – and you know they do this by telling you in significant detail all about it. You can simply say, “no thank you”. You can simply say, “please do not bring that into my experience”. You can simply say, “I am a beacon and a believer of the Light and I will not for one minute allow anything that does not feel aligned to me to enter my experience. And if such thing does, I know that it is simply an opportunity to choose a more aligned to who I really am path.”

And in this way the whole world can be transformed. In this way if all practiced this you would realize that there is nothing, not one thing to fear and that in any moment you can choose whatever perception you desire and you can allow yourself to feel the alignment of it or not. It is not up to you to sort it all out. There are all sorts of thought projections out there that people have given enough credence to that has made it into something much larger than it ever needed to be. Just turn on your television and you’ll see it.

And all of that only exists because enough people gave their attention to it. We are wanting you to give your attention to what is true, to what is truly you. To what your Higher Self, your Source Self, your God self knows to be true. It is all Light and you can choose to be aligned with that or not – the choice is up to you. But trying to figure out what went wrong and how to shift the “dark/bad” or whatever you call it is unnecessary. Stay focused on the Highest Light and only the Highest Light will come to you. Allow every not Light opportunity to be a further clarifying point, a clarification on your alignment and what is truly aligned for you and what is not. You can transmute all that you do not enjoy by connecting to the Light essence that is available to you in any moment. How do you access the Light you may ask – you simply feel love, you take a deep breath and inhale the sweetness of a flower, you place your bare feet in the grass, you stand before your glorious ocean. You connect to the Love, to the Light that surrounds you in any given moment. The Light that many are not seeing simply because – their focus is elsewhere. We are encouraging you to come back to that which you intended to be. To return back to the wholeness that is naturally you. And it is not natural to be focused on “bad/dark/non-aligned” energy. We are using those terms because they are terms we know you will understand. And we will further clarify that really the filter needs to be “aligned with me energy” and “not aligned with me energy”. And the answers to that question will be different for every person because every person is interacting with the path and the world that they intended to. So bonus for you – you do not have to figure out if so and so is on the “right” path, you only have to concern yourself with your path which is the only path you ever need to know anything about.

JOGsAllLightBabySo do not fear. Do not worry. Do not beat yourself up trying to figure it all out. Surrender to the knowing that it is all so much simpler than you could have ever imagined and that you can engage whatever thought forms feel aligned to you and say “no thank you” to those that do not. And that in doing so you cleanse your vibration, you cleanse your mind, you release yourself from your restrictions. Because you are free. Life is Light. All is always working in your favor.

The only component that we cannot control is You. You must be willing to allow this to be your reality and get out of the conversations that say to the contrary. Stop talking about things that do not feel aligned. Stop watching things that do not feel aligned. Stop reading things that do not feel aligned. Stop trying to convince people who are not aligned to be aligned. Let it all go. Give it all up. And enjoy the splendor of who you really are which is Light. Every single one of you. The degree of the Light is different for each but you are all Light and the best way we could ever see you spending any of your time is nurturing that Light.

And so it is.

I love how the JOGs continually remind us that we are always being supported, that things are set up to work out in our favor and how the support we need and the messages that will most serve us do and will come to us. They will be the messages – the 1 out of thousands perhaps – that cause us to pause and pay attention. Why? Because we intended it to be so, we intended it to be like this. Love this – it just feels like a deep sigh of “yes” in my body. How about you? And…I’m so thrilled we decided to show up for each other in this lifetime together. 😉 Enjoy! Xo

Here is also the audio link to listen to this message if you so choose.

# # #

There is much to be known that we want to share with you and much of which you know already – in fact, as you read our messages you will often feel as though you are remembering what we are sharing with you from long ago. In truth, you are because locked within each of you is this clarity, is this knowing and above all is this ability to connect with the Source within you, with your core self, with your non-physical self who is intimately connected to your Spirit Team and there you have an incredible wealth of knowledge that is available to you. So few realize this or feel they cannot access this wisdom and so we find ways to come in to share with you to bring to you messages and nudges and clarity that will support the ease and flow of your life experience. We know it may be challenging at times to fully hear or disseminate the information being brought to you but we assure you that your Spirit Team, that Source, that your Higher Self are all united in their deep desire for you to know the fullness of who you really are and the path with which you are here to experience in the most aligned ways.

And so there are those that bring these messages forth. Those who have agreed before they incarnated that this would be part of their path. There are those highly and completely and fully dedicated solely to this path who are here to support as many as they have agreed to support and who have agreed to be called forth by them to be seen and heard and expanded through the voice and the messages of Spirit.

Each individual who brings these messages through has a specific flavor we would call it or a specific aptitude to bring forth messages that are more clear, concise and applicable to those they are here to serve. There is never any need to worry or fear about not receiving the “right” messages at the “right” time or missing a part of your path that is critical to your overall happiness and purpose. Because it has been decided on and you were part of that decision that you would intersect with specific messengers and messages at specific times that would allow you to remember what needed to be remembered so that you could experience greater alignment and joy and bliss on your path.

You also agreed before incarnating that you would be drawn to a Spirit-led path – which Heather refers to it as – although we would like it if you all just called the Spirit-led path the path because really and truly it is the only path worth living. Oh, you can and many of you have tried and tried to do life on your own and tried doing things the way you think you should and the way you’ve been taught and conditioned to believe things should be but it is not worth it we tell you. Too much hardship. Too much pain. Too much strife. We say it is not worth it and we would request that instead you make it your sole aim to live the life that you fully intended to live, the life that the core of you came here for. There is so much for you to experience, there is no sense letting the collective mind non-sense pull you out of your true, unwavering alignment.

And yet so many do, so many are thinking that it is all up to them. And we have told you and will continue to tell you that you have an entire team of non-physical beings around you just waiting, like really and truly just hoping and praying you are going to request something of them, that an opportunity will arise for them to jump in and support you and watch as you flourish in a new unfolding on your path. Yes, that is really and truly how it works.

And even so, even with your team and even with those of you who are aware and are connected to your Higher Self and your path, there is still a need for upLiftment, for support, for reminders of that which you know within you to be true. And that is why we are bringing these messages through and why others also bring in messages from their Spirit Team. It is because you all need one another and you are all in this together in many regards. You all have days that feel not so good and when those days occur it is so very helpful to receive those reminders that remind you above all else what you are here for and who you are here for and how it all is really meant to go for you and how you really and truly can and should delight in the Magic of this existence.

There are times when you will be soaring, absolutely soaring in the Magic and in the Love and in the abundance that is YOURS. It is so truly and completely yours. And we love watching this, we celebrate and soar with you when you are in that state. Can’t you feel us with you? Can’t you feel the crowds of us cheering and the delight that is emanating from us to you? We hope that you can and we ask that you tune in to this more. In your most joyful moments – stop and tune in – what do you feel and where do you feel it?

Tonight Heather was having the experience of sitting on her deck and she was so happy. Overjoyed really. And she was watching the boats floating around and listening to the birds singing and then the neighbor cats all wanted to be out with her and she was reflecting on how happy she feels and there is no reason. No reason at all. Nothing particularly out of this world happened today and yet her heart is beaming wide open. And she can feel this pulsing within her heart and then all around her heart. And that is us. That is us feeling her happiness too and rejoicing in her now moment in which she – a once self-proclaimed go-getter and doer is simply happy because she is and she is doing nothing to have the experience. It is simply occurring through and around and within her.

And those moments – whether they occur when what you would call big or magnificent things are happening – or when you are simply like Heather sitting outside feeling happy for no reason – we are there celebrating with you.

We would love for you to be in your body more to really feel the pulsing, feel the energy swirling around you. Feeling the loving hugs and support there for you. So often you all on this path are feeling chills and yes that is your Soul saying yes and it’s also all of us hugging you too! We are hugging you and so happy for you as you have aligned with another core truth or action that is part of your Destiny. That is part of what you came here for – to delight in your YES in this lifetime. You know when one of you says something to the other of you and you are covered in chills – yes we are saying yes, yes, yes – you’ve got it! Follow that knowing, follow that guidance, follow that offering – you are on the path of your Destiny.

We will continue to share with you all of the delightful ways we all get to play together. Our intention is that in reading these messages you will have a newfound appreciation for the power of this relationship between you and your Spirit Team and that you will expand the ways you work with your Team and the ways you ask for your Team to be present and to be part of your life experience. We always sneak – not exactly the right word choice here because we really want you to find them so they aren’t that sneaky – new practices and techniques and knowings that will further support your evolution and further support you on being on the path that is most aligned, most fulfilling and most fun for you.

Our intention in bringing these messages through Heather is so another segment of the population that were perhaps untouched by our messages in earlier years or in previous incarnations are touched now. Are supported now. Go higher now.

And it is so.
Love,

There is no question that the most important focus for each of you is to remember your divinity. And from this place of remembering your divinity you can affect all manner of aspects of your life experience. No area of your life will not blossom and expand when you know and honor your divinity. And this you often say to us is challenging because of the requests and demands of you as well as balancing your emotional stimuli and responses. And we understand. We too have been a Spirit in a body at one time. We too can hear your concerns and have also been there ourselves.

However, true spiritual mastery, true mastery of self is what you all came to experience and it is most certainly the journey you are all on whether you consciously acknowledge it or not. To be in your body, to have the “challenges” arise and to not beat yourself up over them but instead to actually stand in glorious delight and honor of them because they are leading you forward. They are opening new doors that you cannot even imagine just yet. They are providing you with an opportunity to know yourself on new levels and to know us, to know Spirit, to know Source on entirely new levels. This is both exciting and refreshing and exhilarating for you.

What would it be like if you could look at your so-called problems this way? What if you could look at everything that occurred in your life as Magic? As what is allowing you to become more you? We want you to play with this. We want you to look at your life through this lens. As it is the lens with which Source and all in the Spirit realms see what is occurring for you. We know that you have your emotional experience and we say also look at your emotions from this vantage point. Observe them, feel them flood through your body, watch and witness them – and do so with the eyes of Source and in doing so you will remember so much more about your divinity.

From this practice, you will know with even more certainty that you are divine. That this life experience you are on is divine. That you have no choice but to continue forward as a divine being of Light. If you so choose.

You see, you can choose not to follow this path. You can resist it. You can drag your feet so to speak to avoid it. But it is always available to you. It is always an option for you to choose YOU, to choose your divinity to choose your highest and most expanded path.

Take a look around right now. Who do you know who is fully living their divinity? Who is living a life of Spirit, of being lit up by the power of being a Spirit in a body, of being so connected, so entwined with their Source self and their Spirit team? And look at those who are not. Do you feel the difference? Can you see the difference?

We would describe it as merely an absence of light or a heavy feeling when you encounter one who is not embracing their divinity. In truth, they are believing the lie, the illusion, the silliness – we want to make it as light as possible here – that says there is something wrong with them or with life or with the world or with those around them. They are focused on problems to fix and people to fix and on things going wrong.

And we encourage you to choose a higher path. To choose the path filled with Light. When making decisions choose the option that has the most Light attached to it. You are trying to decide – do I do this or do I do that and we say – choose that which feels Light. Which feels full of Life and vitality and just like you could float on a cloud along with that decision? These decisions will serve your highest and best good. These decisions will make all of the difference in the world for you.

We so want to see more of you living in this manner because all things can be made available to you – that are on your vibrational trajectory – when you give yourself this gift. We love you and we are forever holding the space for your highest and most profound alignment.

In Love,

A friend of mine said to me one random Thursday as we sat out on my deck overlooking the water, sipping champagne, “You always live like you’re on vacation. And when I spend time with you, I feel like I’m on vacation.”

I had never thought of my life that way, but he was right. I do live most of the time like I’m on vacation. In fact, right now I’m writing this article looking out at the sparkling Pacific Ocean at my favorite luxury hotel and in a few minutes I’ll head out to an evening wine tasting reception followed by dinner with two of my favorite people in the world at one of my favorite restaurants. And it’s only a Wednesday.

The truth is though, it wasn’t always like this for me.

I was raised to believe that the only honor in life came from struggle and sacrifice which meant working hard and barely getting by. I thought doing a job you loathed was just how people lived, and that living paycheck to paycheck was simply par for the course.

Over time though I began to hate living focused on when my next vacation would be to get through the day, while sucking it up around bosses and co-workers I would never choose to be around full-time and working my ass off for meager wages.

So, I did something radical. Or a continuous series of radical acts, that is.

I stopped playing the work-life-money game I had been raised with and decided that since this was my one life, I was not going to spend it working or living for the future. And over the course of the last seven years, I have been able to create a life that truly feels like I’m on vacation every day.

The great news is everyone who desires this can have it too.

Below are my top tips for how to live and work like you’re always on vacation:

1. Commit to it. This is your life and you have the right to live it exactly as your heart and soul desire. Make a commitment to stop working to live and embrace that you get to live the life of your dreams and your work can work around that. Besides we should only ever be doing work that we love. It’s a core soul desire as a human being.


2. Take inventory.
What forms of “work” do you love? What forms of work make the time fly by? What people in your life do you absolutely adore being around? Where are your favorite places to vacation? Where do you feel most at home in the world? Journal your responses to all of these questions. Next, look at how you can live in the city/town that most lights you up, doing what you most love, surrounded by people you adore. Let yourself think big and far outside of the box. You have the ability to create your new normal which means letting go of limiting thoughts, beliefs and fears.

3. Which brings us to… let go of those limiting beliefs and fears that say you can’t live the life of your dreams and that make you stay in homes, relationships and work environments that don’t serve you. Find a practitioner you have a deep soul resonance with who can permanently release those limiting beliefs, fears and bullshit stories with you. As you evolve into more and more versions of your dream life, new limitations will emerge and that’s okay. At every new stage of my dream life, new limitations arise. I remind myself that this is an evolutionary journey and I won’t stop, cuz I can’t stop (there’s some old-school P-Diddy/112 for you). That means I receive regular (two to three times a month) soul alignment sessions and my spiritual “work” is my first priority. This allows me to be clearly tuned in to my soul’s desires (there’s a difference between a soul and mind desire) so that I stay on track in living the life my soul is here to live.

4. Take inspired action.
You can stay languishing for years in what doesn’t work for you or pull the plug and take immediate action to live your dreams. Want to be a successful entrepreneur? Get a fun part-time job, hire an incredible business coach and/or take a spiritual business course and begin to build your business. Want to leave your current relationship? Find a cute studio in a part of town you’ve always wanted to live in, get weekly sessions set up with your therapist and then leave the relationship. Be balanced about the actions you take so that you set yourself up for success. Make sure it’s a full “yes” everywhere in your body and then go for it.

5. Stop doing things you don’t want to do. You know that obligatory girls lunch or happy hour? Or time with that one person who shall go unnamed that sucks the life force from your very body? Stop hanging out with them. Say no. Only spend time with people who uplift you. And if you’re anything like I was when I shifted my obligatory life into dream life mode — it may not leave you with anyone. That’s okay. Start attending events that do light you up and watch as you attract individuals who are more aligned to you.

6. Celebrate every moment that brings you joy. Every step along the way of crafting the life of your dreams should be honored and celebrated. Take yourself out for a mani/pedi, toast with a glass of champagne, go out to your favorite restaurant — every time you release something or someone that no longer serves you and step into living the next chapter of the life of your dreams in a new way — celebrate. What we focus on expands and when we place our focus on all of the good we are intentionally creating in our lives, more good will flow to us.

7. Create a dream team.
You know how athletes and celebrities have a team of people dedicated to their awesome-ness? Yeah, well, you need that too. Have a team of people committed to supporting you in creating your dream life — your energy healer, your coach, your best friend, your lover — all on board to hold you to and support you in taking your life to new heights.

 

Make your life about what it is truly about, YOU having the best life ever. Treat every day as though it were the only day like it (it is), and watch as every day begins to feel like you’re on vacation. Soon, you won’t be taking vacations, you’ll be living one.

Conscious entrepreneurs are the guiding force in a new paradigm of business. We combine all of the aspects of what it means to be a human being – living our purpose, making a positive difference in the world, all while being connected to something larger than ourselves and living in wealth and abundance.

And as conscious entrepreneurs, we also know that we have an edge in business because we use our intuition. We let our intuitive guidance lead the way from everything to product launches, our services, marketing and promotions, and more.

But what is the conscious entrepreneur to do when a decision is unclear? When the ideas are not flowing? What does one do when the mind and intuition is split and a clear path is not, well, clear?

The Valentine’s Lovefest is in full effect. You can’t walk more than a few steps without running into candied hearts, chocolates, teddy bears, and diamonds (I happened to run into a whole case full of diamonds yesterday and could not stop batting my eyes at them, as though someone — anyone — might notice and gift them to me right then and there.)

You see, it’s so easy to get wrapped up in the concept that Love is about someone else giving something to us. You know, like flowers (preferably red roses, just like on The Bachelor of course), diamonds, affection, and telling you that you’re “the one” (a la Big to Carrie on Sex & The City).

But that isn’t actually Love.

Those are merely expressions of Love from another to us, but it is not the core essence of Love.

The truth is, even those expressions of Love have to stem from a feeling that an individual has inside of him/herself. We actually already have all of the Love we could ever need or desire — inside of us. We get to experience Love with others as a way of remembering this Love that is inside of us already. Now, stay with me here, I can feel the eye rolls coming, but it’s true.

And I’m going to prove it to you.

If you want to experience feeling more Love in your life today, try out a couple or all of the following and notice what happens inside of you and all around you:

  • Go on, say it. Go to the nearest mirror, look yourself straight in the eyes and say out loud: “I love you _____ (insert your full name).” Watch what happens to your eyes, to your face, to your heart. Breathe into it and say it again, out loud.
  • Take a Love time-in. Instead of diving into the next project, phone call, FB message, or email – stop. Set aside your electronics. Sit on your couch or bed or a comfy chair. Close your eyes with both hands on your heart. Breathe into your heart. Sit there until you feel ready to get up again. Notice how you feel in your body and what happens when you do this.
  • Simple pleasures rock. What is the simplest pleasure that you Love but always seem to wait for someone else to get or do for you? For me, it’s flowers. I Love flowers, yet I would rarely buy them for myself. I was always thinking maybe “someone else” would surprise me with them (i.e. this is lame, so please do not do this to yourself — let my re-donk-u-lous-ness be an example for you). Finally I started buying them for myself. Now every time I walk by my fresh bouquet of flowers, I beam. They make me happier than happy, and for $10-20, who can beat that?
  • Put it in ink. Go to the store and buy the most romantic greeting card you can find. You know, the one that makes you sigh with Love. Then, go home, pour yourself a great glass of red (or champagne, or tea or kombucha — your choice), get cozy (soft music and fireplace kind of cozy) and write inside the card a love letter to yourself. Thank yourself for being the incredible woman you are. Thank yourself for your beauty, your brilliance, your light, your gifts. Go all out. Say everything our culture says you aren’t supposed to say for fear of “being in ego” (which is actually not true, so ignore that silly thought) or being “arrogant.” Applaud yourself for being the kick-ass woman that you are. Then re-read the card, slowly. Re-read it several times. Put it up somewhere where you can read it often
  • Tap it out. Anytime you find yourself thinking unloving or negative thoughts about yourself, stop. Tap Cortices with a focus on connecting to the deep Love within you and say out loud “I choose to Love myself even amidst this.” Take some deep breaths as you do this to clear the unloving energy. Re-focus yourself on the present moment and being kind to yourself.
  • Share your Love. Get some colored post-its. Write a Love message on each one. Make sure it’s a Love message that you would Love to receive. Examples: “I love you,” “You’re beautiful,” “You make the world a more special place,” “You glow with Love,” “The world needs you,” “Thank you for being here.” Create your own as well. Keep these with you — in your car, bag, etc. — and put them out at the gym, restaurants and cafes, events, etc.

And here’s the wow factor from all of this — as you connect to the Love that is already within you, you’ll find that you’ll want to share it with more people. The post-it notes will simply be the tip of the Love iceberg. Once we connect to the Love within us, the desire to share it with all we meet becomes profound. Then, guess what happens? People can’t stop sharing the Love that they are feeling with you! Before you know it, Love is pouring into you because you are now a magnet for it.

You see, we can’t attract or experience anything that we aren’t already tuned in to in some way. Remembering that we have all of the Love we need already and then sharing it from that abundant place, allows us to experience it at a level we never before could have imagined.

Have fun with this and use your Love practices daily to allow you and all those around you to go Higher into Loving.
