An Unexpected Gift

gift-553150_1920

I unintentionally gave myself a beautiful gift this morning.

I started going back through all of my blog posts. This morning I started the transfer of my favorites over to the new web-site, and a technological glitch put me on hold. So, I’ve begun to sift. I realized I needed to take a moment to sit back and appreciate the experience I was having.

It’s beautiful to see the ebb and flow of life: the topics I write most often about, the similar themes on my journey through life. What’s particularly fascinating to me is seeing the moments of brilliance, of insights and awarenesses that I am now fully experiencing. Divine insight? Angelic assistance? Perhaps inner knowing? All of the above, I think.

I have a story to tell, a message to share, and I see I’ve been telling it all along.

Here’s to your story, your message.

Much love and many blessings. ❤

Mind-Blowing Perspectives

architecture-1868473_1920

It’s a year of the tweaks — tweaking strategies, media, patterns, and thoughts.

I’m going to keep “A Moment In Life.”  My goal is still to post every day, and I will build that up.  My favorite posts will be copied to my new website: https://www.terikarl.com  Every day of my life I look at what I have learned, what the universe has been teaching me.  And this is what I want to share with all of you.

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about perspectives.  I recently received an intuitive report on Prosperity and Abundance, and I’ve been listening to it again the last few days.  In that report, it talks about a past lifetime that I am currently resonating with, and what has struck me most is that I chose the challenging conditions of that lifetime.   And because of those challenging conditions, I made a major breakthrough shift that allowed me to step into a new level of authority and healing.

So, all of these struggles I’m feeling right now with perfectionism, with feeling a need for stability, with feeling stuck and wanting to move faster, to manifest more quickly. . . Maybe I chose this.  Because I need it.

It brings a whole new level to gratitude and appreciating what we have, doesn’t it?  I’m certainly looking at my past in a whole new way!  What if all of these things we complain about . . .  are actually for our greater good.  And are maybe even something we chose for ourselves before we were even born?

Mind blown.

Have a joyful, mind-blowing day, everyone!

Much love, and many blessings. ❤

 

 

 

Strengthening Structures

stairs-113610_1920

Structure, structure, STRUCTURE!  This has been a big word for me in the past few months.

Ugh!  I’m in that “It’s been a whole month since I’ve written, and now I feel like I have to write something awesome” mindset.

Ok — over it!

I’m making some changes, and I’m really excited about them!  Part of this means that “A Moment in Life” will be moving!  (Updates coming!) 

I’m putting some great external structures in place.  Here come all of the endorsements for a lot of awesome local businesses!  Last month I joined Barbara Caine’s FUSE Business Training program and Melanie Nicolas’s monthly mastermind to focus my social media and business plans.  I’ve been working with Shaunna Bobrow to get my business financials in order.  I branded myself with Brabender Arts, finally purchased my profile photos from Toma Houston, and am currently finishing up my website with Tara Mccallam.

I’m doing the internal work, coaching with Lorilei , receiving a Prosperity Intuitive report from Golbahar Dadyan and Brian Kraichley, and having an intuitive session this weekend with a wonderful woman I met through the School of Metaphysics. Of course, I’m also improving my physical health with Brian Earley!

I’ve been mainly involved in 2 networking groups: The Chicagoland Coopvertising Network and the BNI Plainfield Premier Professionals.  And . . . that’s all I’ve got in me to share today!

Have a wonderful day everyone!  Much love, many blessings. ❤

“Love is a many splendored thing.”– Paul Francis Webster

There are 3 types of love I mention in the “Matters of the Heart” workshop and webinar: self-love, love of others, and the love search.  If you took a good look, how would you measure up in these areas?

How is your self-love?  

This is the foundation of all love.  If we do not have self-love, how can we love others?  If our own love bucket is empty, we have nothing to give.  We could all use a little more self-love!  Here are some tips to get you back on your feet:

  1. Make a list of things that bring you joy (and do one daily!)
  2. Love your mind and spirit: journal/meditate/pray/be still/practice mindfulness/use affirmations
  3. Love your body — nutrition and exercise
  4. Give yourself some supportive “mirror time” (Take a good look and like what you see!)
  5. The Artist’s Date — Take yourself out on a creative date!
  6. Surround yourself with loving people
  7. Discover and implement your love language on yourself (from the 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman)

How is your relationship love bank?

Gary Chapman, relationship counselor, tells us that there are 5 Love Languages:

1.Words of Affirmation

2.Receiving Gifts

3.Acts of Service

4.Quality Time

5.Physical Touch

Which resonates with you?  (Be honest!)  In every successful relationship — whether conscious of it or not — each partner is communicating love through his/her partner’s love language.  To show your partner/child/friend how much you care, identify his/her love language. Take the assessment at the link above, or think about the times when your partner seemed to glow the most.  Or when they seemed to complain the most!

Irene Schreiner of solidfoundationstherapy.com says that a relationship is made up of 3 parts: partner #1, partner #2, and the relationship.  A healthy relationship takes work and must be treated like a job  — or a new puppy!   We only have control of ourselves, and when making decisions and requests, we must always consider the relationship.

Looking for Love?

For those looking for new love, these 4 tips are for you

  1. Decide for love. Your dream partner is a part of your vision for you life!  Decide you will have love (and strongly!) and the universe will respond in kind.
  2. Create a vision of your partner (including “This or something better”!)    The Law of Specificity tells us to feed our inner mind very specific pictures!  The clearer our description, the easier it is to find what we are looking for.  Just be open to something even better than you were able to imagine on your own!
  3. BE your ideal partner.  Opposites attract, but like also attracts like.  Work on yourself to be the best you can be.  You will find someone who resonates with that frequency.
  4. Start living the life you’d live with your partner. Why wait to go out and have fun until you have that special someone by your side?  Make ready for your partner by living the life you’d love to be sharing with him/her.  Plus, you just might end up bumping into each other!

No one is perfect at love — so which area is calling to you for some extra attention?  Pick an action step today, and let’s turn up the heat on that thermostat of love!

Much love, many blessings. ❤

Numbers for the Week

mailboxes-1838667_1920

I’ve begun to find the angel numbers comforting, like an ongoing conversation.  Mostly they’ve seemed positive this week: “118” —  positive thoughts have opened financial flow, 1’s and 7’s — You’re on the right track, etc.

A few have been a little more frustrating and confusing, suggesting I keep my attention on my soul’s purpose, not on finances.  (Both are part of my dream, angels!)

That’s the journey I’m on now: to reconnect to myself and to heavenly beings.

I think the key is my last meditative thoughts during the crystal healing at the Kirk Center for Healthy Living: “We are one.”  We are one.

Much love, many blessings. ❤

A Spirit Guide Message

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51Xk3RNYAuL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

For a long time now I’ve been wanting to connect with my angels and spirit guides.  I see angel numbers almost daily, and I use angel cards at least weekly, but I’d often like to connect more intimately.  The post is inspired by a Facebook post I saw back in December.  A friend had posted a picture of a pile of books she had read, and the top one caught my eye: Let Your Spirit Guides Speak.

In this book Debra Landwehr Engle helps you develop a relationship with your guides, and part of what she shares comes from her writing guide “Ella.”  The very first question she asked was: “Ella, what is spiritual guidance?”  The response was so powerful I knew I’d want to frequently revisit it, and I share part of it here with you:

As you know from your own experience, we can tell you whether to turn right or left, where to go next, what to do on your to do list, who to talk to, and what to say.  We are intimately involved with those serendipitous events that you attribute to the universe, and the God moments in which there’s a flash of knowledge or peace that passeth understanding.  What we want to get across is that truly we are here with you always, and while you may not always feel our presence directly, that doesn’t mean we aren’t here.

If the communication is blocked, it’s never because we have blocked it.  It is always fear that stands in the way, and it is healing the fear that opens the lines of communication.  As your friend once said, “Now we can really get things done!”

We are eager to work with you as direct partners, and we honor you.  You are not lesser than us.  You are not lower beings.  You are, in fact, courageous souls who are navigating the Earth plane and all the human emotions of fear that can make your experience seem so fretful and challenging and sad.  We honor all these experiences and the growth they can bring.  And at the same time, we are here to help you have more joy and abundance in you life, more ease, because your life experience does not require struggle or pain.

The more you work with us, the easier your life may become.  Not because you won’t still have challenges, but because together we can help you see them in new ways and heal from them faster.  We can instill in you a sense of purpose that makes it exciting to wake up in the morning.  We can pave the way for our days to be easier and more abundant and filled with joy by helping you make decisions that can life you up and traverse obstacles.  We can help you experience your human life as an adventure . . . a chance to explore other worlds, other cultures, without judgement or expectations that can make you miserable or feel cheated.

This is what we are here for with every one of you.

Much love, many blessings. ❤

It’s OK to Mourn

angel-1548085_1920

Today I made the decision to leave something I’d been a part of for nearly half a year.  I think that amount of investment in time and attention explains why I felt slightly sick after I was done.  It was time to move on, but we get attached, right?  I certainly had.

It’s ok to mourn.  To reflect on the investment in time and resources, in heart, in faith.  It’s ok to be disappointed.  And to also have renewed faith. . . even. . .  excitement.

For the last 3 years I have invested quite a bit of time in various organizations.  Upon further reflection, for much of my life I’ve been overly invested in some sort of work.  I’m ready to open a little more time now. Time to “Be.”

Much love, many blessings. ❤
