2018 Here We Go!

Matt Lauer and Setting Goals 

It was just about a year ago I was writing down my intentions for 2017. I had taken a vision board workshop with the brilliant Brooke Emery and she instructed us to write a letter dated January 2018 looking back at all we had accomplished. It was career specific so my letter focused on my accomplishments relating to my book, Ocean’s Fire and I’m happy to say most of my goals came to fruition. 

One did not… I had written in my letter about my appearance on the Today show, promoting my book and talking with Matt Lauer about the rapidly changing landscape of America.I wrote this line in my letter… 

“Paradigms are crumbling before our eyes Matt. It’s about time, don’t you think.” 

My internal dialogue and my letter never waited for his reply. But suffice it to say, he probably would have feverishly tried to disagree with me. :) 

I have two thoughts about this…one, maybe I have untapped psychic ability I should explore, and two, it reminded me that I may have all the plans in the world but if they don’t fit into the Grand Divine Plan, it ain’t going to happen. And that’s okay. Many other wonderful accomplishments popped up that weren’t on my radar that I didn’t even know to ask for. I didn’t get the Lauer interview but I got a half dozen articles published in amazing outlets. I’m happy to take that trade. 

The Universe wants to give us more than we can humanly understand and most certainly more than we think we deserve. Somewhere in 2017 I finally learned to be open to the flow and the unpredictability of life, even when I don’t get what I want. I’ve learned there are better things waiting. 

No one is immune to the intense energy shift going on in our world. We all feel the strains of a new normal being created. The old way, one of secrets and denial and oppression is rapidly dying. What has been no longer works. Change is scary and exciting. We are being called to create a new way of being, a new way of loving, a new way of teaching our children. 

Take ten minutes this weekend to reflect on what went right in 2017, even if the only thing you can think of was a really good haircut in February. Give thanks for that haircut! Gratitude is the first step toward abundance. Moving on to 2018, take another ten to write down your intentions for the coming year. Statistics show (from some mysterious gaggle of locked away statisticians) that people who write down their goals have an 80% greater chance of achieving them than those who do not. Use the power of your imagination to dream about how you want your life to look December 31st, 2018 when you’ll reflect on all that went right this year. 

I wish you an abundant year ahead filled with joy, love and much laughter!

The Turning Tides of Spring

I love learning and listening to forward thinkers, especially in the spiritually space, but lately they all annoy the hell out of me. (Hmmm...I'll have to re-read the part about tolerance of others). How are we to be so spiritually evolved when we're wallowing in the shit that's become our lives? Then I caught the end of some doof head's youtube rant that we create our reality. It's an axiom I've touted hundreds of times but then I thought I didn't create the hate groups, I didn't create the degeneration of society as we know it. But then maybe I did.

Mining for Gold

I’ve caught the Olympics here and there and it’s beyond inspiring to see the stories of those that have worked all of their young lives to compete to achieve their dreams. Watching Shaun White and Mikaela Shiffrin create a new definition of what’s possible was magnificent, and it got me thinking. Yes, they’ve both nailed the formula of preparation + skill + sheer will = success. But it's also apparent that they’ve connected to the alchemical magic in us all, Divine Potential. Call it fire, call it passion, it’s the energy that drives a person to action despite obstacles and adversity.

Wonder...

to be filled with admiration, amazement or awe. (Also a movie I can't wait to see. I cried multiple times over that book.)

This feels so good

"This feels so good, I can’t stop doing it.” Those words just came out of my mouth and I had an aha. When was the last time you said that? Have you ever said that? What were you doing when you said it?

All That Jazz

For years I've lived by the mantra: "If you have the desire, you have the ability." The Universe isn't that cruel to give you a dream and no way to attain it. You may have to bust your ass for years and give up and restart a thousand times before success falls upon you, but it is absolutely possible to achieve your dreams.

Curiosity is Queen

“Curiosity plants the seed of doubt in the fertile ground that is your belief system.” Someone brilliant said that and I can’t remember whom. If it was you, please send me a note and I will give you credit. I was listening to Eckhart Tolle yesterday and every word that came out of his mouth was brilliant. He made the word toothpaste sound magical. He was doing a very good job at explaining how we as humans do not have an original thought. It is all a function of our human conditioning.
