Your 2015 Word

Each year a word comes to me that I know will play a big part in how my year unfolds. It is a word to inspire me and keep me focused. It is a word that just comes to me intuitively. So how do you pick a word? Check out this blog from a year ago where I explain the process.

My word for 2013 was expansion and WOW did I expand with loads of new classes and writing. It was exhausting and exhilarating! For 2014 it was balance because I was working way too much (12-14 hour days) and it was zapping my creativity. I can say that I achieved balance by the end of the year. And for 2015 I feel that the word is not just for me but is for everyone. That word is movement!

2015 year of movement

What does movement mean? The messages that have come to me are saying that movement in 2015 is about:

  • moving to a new home, a new city, or a new state;
  • moving to a new job or an entirely new career (taking that leap of faith to start that passion career);
  • moving into healthy relationships;
  • moving in the form of exercise or a better physical movement plan that you will stick to throughout the year;
  • moving towards a more organized life;
  • moving towards having solid goals that you actually achieve in 2015;
  • moving into a heart-centered life;
  • moving along your soul path;
  • moving along in your spiritual practice;
  • moving your beliefs to where they support rather than hinder;
  • moving your actions to where you listen to your intuition, are present to see messages, and then take inspired action; and
  • moving into alignment of all that you are, away from fear and to what you are on this Earth to do.

Movement is a loaded word; depending on where you are on this path called life, it could involve one or more of these movements. In speaking with many of my friends, colleagues and clients, I feel that everyone is going to go through a movement in 2015. I do not believe that this will be a shakeup that has everyone feeling anxious and disconnected like in recent years; instead, it will be a shift in the reality beneath your feet to nudge you in the direction you need to go. The movement will feel right even if there are no outward signs that say “go this way.”

For me, movement is already happening and it is so freaking exciting I can barely sit still! I am filled with enormous energy to get things in place and I am taking bold steps because it feels right. And when you feel excited with those I can do anything emotions, the Universe begins to dramatically line things up.

As I say to so many people:

You’re at A and you want to get to Z. You do not need to know specifically what to do from B to Y. All you need to know is the next step to take. After that, you will receive the next step, and the next step, and so on. These steps come in the form of intuition (hey, do this!), messages (like the church sign that said “You need to meditate!”), signals (a serendipitous happening that has meaning, even in the form of a Facebook post that is inspiring). When you are inspired and it feels right, snuff out the fear voice and take the step. When you look back in 6 or 12 months, you will be amazed how far you have come.

If you are satisfied with every aspect of your life, then you can ignore this. If not, think about what movement needs to or must happen in your life in 2015 to get you to where you want to be. Then think of another word that is personal to you and add that in.

Finding Holiday Sanity

Jacob Xmas 2014Are you someone who loves the holidays … from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day, decorates early, has presents all tied up and ready to hand out, cooks and bakes for parties, hosts parties, and is filled with the glee the entire season? Or are you someone who is filled with a little sadness or loneliness, dreads holiday shopping, would love to say no to all of the holiday parties, struggle with family gatherings, and simply wants to stay buried under the warm covers until the season is over? No matter which holiday camp you fall into, both types can suffer from holiday physical and emotional stress. So how do you maintain Holiday Sanity?

Admittedly, I am someone who loves the holiday season (I’ve been on a cookie and candy making frenzy for a few weeks!), but I’ve had my fair share of years where I was melancholy and just wanted to hold my breath until it passed. Here’s a few tricks that are tried and tested by moi and have worked to keep me balanced and sane!

For physical wellness:

Ningxia Red

  • Drink Young Living Ningxia Red everyday. I started doing this about 4 months ago and I now cannot imagine a day without it. You will have energy and your body will feel great. When you’re not eating right or having long and busy days, this can keep you balanced.
  • Young Living DiGize and Peppermint oils are great after a big meal. Apply to your abdomen or ingest a few drops in a capsule.
  • Young Living Thieves and R.C. oils will help you stay strong during winter. And Thieves cleaner will keep your home naturally clean without toxins!
  • Put a Clear Quartz crystal in a glass of water, sit it in a window sill and let the sun infuse the water with the crystal’s energy. At the end of the day, or first thing in the morning, drink the water. Then refill the glass everyday. Clear Quartz is known as the Master Healer!
  • Take a good probiotic to help keep your internal system balanced. I love Young Living’s Life 5 probiotic.
  • Try on a green smoothie for breakfast that is filled with green vegetables! This will help you after too much eating the day before.
  • If you have less time for exercise, make sure that you at least do a little more walking during the day (take the stairs rather than the elevator) and do some stretching/yoga before bed.

For emotional wellness:

Believe

  • These essential oils are uplifting, inspiring and help you stay balanced during chaos: Young Living’s BelieveJoy, Neroli, Oola Balance, and Transformation are a few of my favorites.
  • Wear or carry citrine crystals for a pick-me-up vibration. Citrine exudes happiness and carries the sunny energy of the sun! These are also excellent to place in a glass of water and let the sun infuse the crystal into the water for drinking.
  • Put it in your calendar that you absolutely will, without exception, find quiet time (aka meditation) for at least 5 minutes everyday. This will absolutely keep you grounded and centered.
  • Schedule an energy healing or massage session for yourself to help work out the physical kinks and emotionally energize your spirit.
  • Focus on the good that is around you. Whenever you begin to feel stressed, stop and think of 5 things that you’re grateful to have in your life.
  • Play music that inspires you. This could be classical music or 80’s punk rock! And if the music moves you, dance it out! You will feel amazing afterwards.

And do not forget that your pets can struggle during the holidays too. Check out my blog about how to have a Happy Healthy Holiday Pet. And remember, whether you are surrounded by a big crazy eccentric family or living alone, a daily practice of gratitude (when you wake up and before you fall asleep) will help you enjoy the the season.

Happy Holidays to all of you and I look forward to connecting even more in 2015!

Higher Self Early Warning System

Panic! At one point (or more) in our lives, we will experience a panic attack. Shortness of breath, gripping fear, overwhelming worry, and a physical signal that something isn’t right! Think back to the last time you had a panic attack. What thoughts were whirling through your mind? Were they thoughts of “don’t do this, don’t go there, turn around”? Did you stay the course and move forward or did you take a different path?

Panic is our body’s way of giving us an early warning to change direction. It may not need to be a huge directional change, but your higher self is sending you an urgent text message that what lies ahead is not in your best interest. Some people suffer from chronic panic attacks, sometimes occurring everyday; while others suffer only a few in their lifetime. If you suffer from frequent or chronic panic attacks, have you ever spent the time analyzing them to find a common theme? You might find that your higher self is trying to get a message through to you.

I remember having a significant panic attack in October 2003 as I was driving from Michigan to Virginia to finalize my move for a new job. This was not a move that I wanted to make, but a move that I had to make for employment. I was on the I-70 expressway in Maryland near Frederick and I could not breathe. My mind was racing, I broke out in hysterical tears, I was consumed with fear, and every cell in my body was telling me to turn around and go home. I had to pull over on the side of the road and it took about 30 minutes to compose myself. I did not want to move, I knew that it was the right path for me to take, but I felt compelled to accept this national level job given that I could not find work in Michigan in my chosen field.

Eleven years later, things have turned out fine but it was a difficult road for the first 3 years and the path has always had some underlying struggle. I did not listen to that inner voice giving me a physical signal to stop and so my path from that point on was not a smooth path.

If you ignore a panic attack, it does not necessarily mean that your life will fall apart. You can certainly make the path the best that it can be like I did, but it doesn’t mean that it’s the right path at that time. What it does mean is that you are taking a more difficult route, a route that is not the best for you at that time. In the Law of Attraction, our emotions and our body send us signals when we are out of alignment with our true path. The messages start as a little voice in our head, then signals to change course, and then a full on physical panic attack to finally get our attention. We ignore these signs because often we feel that the path we are on is the only path. There is always more than one path.

Lavender1What should you do if you’re in the middle of a panic attack? Place some Lavender or Peace & Calming essential oil in your palm and inhale, or put a drop or two of Grounding oil on the bottom of your feet. Hold a grounding crystal such as Black Tourmaline or a calming crystal like Blue Lace Agate. Lie down and listen to calming music. Then listen to what your body and inner voice are trying to tell you. Do not block the messages; instead, write down what comes to you.

My panic attack taught me that I could plow through the panic and make a good life, but it was difficult and I would choose differently in the future. My panic attack taught me that there are always forks in the road, every single day. My panic attack taught me that when we ignore these signals, we are only making life more difficult than it has to be. My panic attack taught me to trust my inner voice and my physical early warning system. Your inner voice is never wrong, so trust it!
