49 Days ‘Til El Camino: Are We There Yet?

output-419280_1920.jpg

Why does 49 seem like so much less than 50??

Today I walked 3 hours, as planned.  And nearly died.  That’s not true.  I did very well but was very tuckered out by the end.  I actually walked 2.75 hours, and then took the dogs out for their mile walk, and they were dragging me along for the first half.  I’m really glad I decided to up my game.  I plan to walk at least 1 3-hour walk per week, and my next walk will be with a full backpack.  (Today I walked with my empty backpack, except for a water bottle.)

I’m so, so grateful that I walked twice this past weekend.  I can see now how valuable physical preparation can be!  And my wonderful friend read my blog and offered to go for a walk with me!  She’s a yoga instructor, too, and offered to teach me some good foot stretches!  The universe is very good to me! ❤

I need to make sure I get my last orders in by the end of this week or next week at the latest.  There will be plenty of stores in Spain, but I don’t want to mess around with things like trying to find an adapter.  I need my phone to work!

In the past few weeks I’ve started talking aloud to myself.  I find it very therapeutic.  It’s very amusing to me because that’s the supposed to be the definition of “crazy”, right?  Well, I already knew I was crazy.  I guess this just confirms it. . .  I found myself talking to myself often during the walk today.  It was nice.  At one point I actually got tired of hearing myself talk and was quiet for a bit, but soon I picked it up again!

I’ve really come to see how I’m already walking “el Camino”.  I started walking it the day I decided to go.  That’s what we are all called to do: walk our own “Caminos”.  There is a dream inside of each of us, and only we can decide for it because it is ours, and ours alone.  Once we do decide for it . . .  we are on our way!  The journey has begun; the lessons and learnings commence.

Today I felt so grateful.  So incredibly, incredibly grateful.  Because things feel right again.  I laugh at myself when I see how blind I was, even a few weeks ago!  I’ve known since college how important travel is to me, ever since I took off and lived a semester in Mexico.  But I shoved down my dream and decided it wasn’t important.  Why?  There are plenty of excuses I could use to explain it away.  And often many of us do.  But not anymore. Not me.  What about you?

I’m back on track, and it’s an exhilarating (and sometimes scary!) ride.  Here’s to the journey.  Here’s to our lives!

Much love and many blessings. ❤

5 Wisdom Cards, Claircognizance, and Learning Obedience and Trust

I am experimenting with my claircognizance.  For now I am only intentionally using it to pick the correct wisdom deck and appropriate cards, but I’d like to expand that to events throughout that day.

I’ve mentioned before that there are 4 clairs, different psychic abilities — at least there are 4 that I’ve heard of.  They are clairsentience, claircognizance, clairvoyance, and clairaudience.  Doreen Virtue tells us that we have the potential for all 4, but there are some that we’ve either developed more or tapped more than others.

I always thought clairsentience was my strongest and the one that I should depend on the most.  I am a very sensitive person and have very strong feelings and emotions.  However, I have found that my feelings can be very misleading.  I sometimes misinterpret my emotions, and this leads to poor decision-making.  So, in the past week I’ve looked into “just knowing” things.  I know I’ve used this almost unconsciously in teaching and coaching, and I’m thrilled at the resonance I’ve found with using it for readings from the angels, Ascended Masters, etc, and my inner self.

#1

the-dreamer-card

This is the card that began last week’s journey: “The Dreamer.”  It is so beautiful that the last card I’d picked before this for myself was “Dreams” (mentioned in my previous blog post).  Clearly there is a common theme here!  I picked this card in answer to the question: “What guidance do you have for me today?”  Very open-ended, right?  Dreams have been a theme in my life, before I even realized it, and I was thrilled to receive this card.

#2 The second time I drew this past week I asked for guidance on the first card: How can I achieve my dream? Advice on this, please!  And this time, I received this fantastic card:

focused-intention-cardIt makes perfect sense!  Clarity, focused intention.  Keep your attention on your dream, and make it happen!  I have begun to be more intentional in my life in general.  Today in the coaching call with my coach, Jacque, this same thought came up again.

#3 This card threw me off at first:

fertility-card

The card is “Fertility!”  (I am not planning on having children anytime soon!)  However, I knew there was likely a deeper meaning.  I received this card in response to a question about a piece of my dream.  During my first training as a Life Mastery Consultant I had received a very high (for me!) amount in my head for a yearly salary.  I was so out of vibration with the amount that I began to feel mildly ill, in my mind and even in my body!  I didn’t understand why this amount had come to me, and so I asked about it.  I knew from reading the card’s description (in the deck booklet) that the message was to allow myself the plentitude (abundance!) to create my dream and to live out my purpose.  A scary thought, but a lovely one.

#4 and #5

patience-cards

These two cards were very painful.  (Sometimes I don’t like to wait!)  I was drawn to 2 different decks and was awed that I received the same message from both decks.  My question was about a new branch of coaching that has not yet come to fruition.  I had been receiving positive signs from the angels about it, but I wanted to check in again to be sure.  The message is clear.  Divine timing is at play here.  Maybe I am not ready.  Maybe the organization is not quite ready.  (or both!) But stick with it, be patient and wait.

I received a similar message this morning when working with my coach.  I wanted to learn more about receiving and why it was sometimes a challenge for me.  She asked me to check in with my inner self, and the answer I got was that it was not time to explore this yet.  This was very frustrating to me!  Tears came to my eyes, and I instantly felt like a petulant child.  How could this not be in my best interest? Wouldn’t this help me be successful?  She then actually used the analogy of a child for me.  I could even see it.  There are things that we — not omniscient and not omnipresent souls, young beings limited by our senses on the physical plane — may not understand yet.  We can do damage to ourselves by messing with things outside their timing, just as children can harm themselves when exploring things that they cannot yet understand.

So, this is the beginning of my obedience, obedience to my inner self.  This week has been a challenging one for me, every day my ego sneaking in and wreaking havoc with my emotions until I realize it was ego all along and surrendering it all once again!  I encourage you to surround yourself with supportive teachers (spirit, people, and also recordings of great people!)  They have encouraged me and straightened me out when I feel “lost”!

Much love, many blessings. ❤

Tuesday/Wednesday: W’s and W’s

Well, it looks like poor “Truth Tuesday” got the shaft again.  I didn’t realize it until this afternoon.  “Wellness Wednesday” is going to have to take a break, too, because I need to do a check in with myself.  I’m bringing “Win’s and Weaknesses Wednesday” back from the grave today.

Weaknesses:

Let’s start with the hard stuff.

My self care is suffering. I haven’t gotten good exercise in 2 weeks.  I haven’t swum in 2 weeks (though I’d like to tomorrow or Friday morning — just got my replacement suit! The chlorine resistant suit. . .  not so chlorine resistant as I’d hoped.)  My eating has been here and there.  I’ve been having my protein smoothies and some salads but sometimes I miss the eggs for the morning, and snacks and dinners have been helter skelter.

My excuse is that I’ve got to dive into these other things I’m doing.  I believe exercise is important.  I believe a good diet is important.  I believe I would benefit from journaling and from more “fun.”  I don’t feel like I know it yet.

Wins:

I’ve started some new trainings that I’m excited about.  I’ve begun training as a Life Enhancement coach, and I’m really excited about the opportunity to make a difference in so many lives.  I’ve also begun training with Felicity Joy to help her out with her Multi-Level-Marketing group calls.  I’ve learned a lot about MLMs already, and I really enjoy learning about business owners and hearing them make progress toward their goals!   I’ve been having some great Vision Workshops, and I’ve set up some new ones beyond my regular monthly one.  I have one at Tranquility Massage, one at the Kirk Center for Healthy Living, a mini one at the Romeoville Rotary, and a pending speaking series for the Darien Chamber.

I’m doing better with follow-ups, and I plan to start a DreamBuilder coaching group soon.  I still have a vision-focused mini-webinar series with my DreamBuilder coach in the works.  I’m also doing a great job of increasing my education through audiobooks in the car and keeping up better with webinars and training calls.  I’m also continuing to learn more and more about myself and slowly embracing vulnerability and self-acceptance.

I would love to hear about how you’re doing. ❤  Much love, many blessings.

Wins and Weaknesses Wednesday: My Vision

window-1404515_1920

Today I’m making my bold move. I’m sharing my vision statement with the world.

Mary Morrissey says to be careful who you share your dream with.  This makes sense.  It’s so easy to kill a dream; dreams are so fragile.  They require belief.  But it’s also important to claim our dreams.  I’ve reached a critical point in my life; I know it’s time to decide, really decide for my dream.  I’m not saying this is written in stone; as my coach and I say, this is a “living document.”  I may continue to tweak a few things, and I can certainly be more detailed in some areas.  But the core of this dream is true for me, and I’m going for it.  I’m not turning back.  I’m going to be the example, now and in all of my future interactions with clients and anyone that I touch.  I know that by believing in myself, I am able to believe in each and every one of you. Here we go, and here’s to dreaming!

Vision Statement July 2016

I am so happy and grateful now that I have time and money freedom. I feel so much peace, such serenity, knowing that not only are my credit cards clear and paid off every month and my investments paid back in full, but I have $12,000 in savings and am contributing healthily to my retirement fund and other investments.

I have a great schedule. I work Monday through Thursday coaching, and I speak/present on weekends, traveling twice a month and having the other two weekends off. Also, every three months I take at least a full week’s vacation to a destination of my choice, and I plan to see the whole world! I’ve been to many places. I’ve walked El Camino from France to Spain, I’ve visited Mallorca and Barcelona. I’ve been to Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, and Macchu Picchu. I’ve traveled to the 48 contiguous states, driven up the California coast with Brian, and traveled down the Mississippi with my mom. I also got married to my sweetheart, Brian, in Hawaii. I saw Doreen Virtue and visited with her there. When we came back, we had a huge reception outside our house, with grilling, shared food, and dancing.

My health is great. I enjoy exercise, and every day I spend some loving attention on my body. Sometimes I walk, other times swim, bike, dance, do weights, or do yoga. I eat very well, mostly vegetarian at home, and experiencing the local fair when I travel. (I love food!) My personal chef takes great care of me and helps me stay on track with a tasty, healthy diet.

I’m very connected with the angels. I meditate for at least 15 minutes daily, and I am constantly getting quiet and still, checking in with my inner self and the Divine. I am a clear channel and have been a vessel for healing, insight, and inspiration. I really do feel like the Divine’s eyes, ears, mouth, hands, and feet on Earth.

Brian and I are doing very well. He is a Master Coordinator for Shaklee and feeling very confident and successful.   I am a successful coach and “joyedian.” I speak, I dance, I sing, I heal, and I’m really funny! I am asked to speak all over the world and paid to travel and present. I have earned as much as 1 million dollars in all of this, and it symbolizes the millions I’ve touched through coaching, speaking, entertaining, and healing. I love being a partner in believing for my groups. I “turn the lights on” as individuals begin fulfilling their dreams and really believing in themselves. I’ve been interviewed on ABC, CBS, and WGN, and I’ve been on Dancing with the Stars! I’ve also written many books, some mythological and symbolic of the human journey, others are inspirational nonfiction, and still others are metaphysical stories for children. Some have even been New York Times best sellers!

I am grateful each and every morning that my eyes open once again, knowing I have more fun to experience and joy to share!

I am very grateful for this or something better. ❤

Much love, many blessings.  Remember to believe in yourself, and believe in your dreams! ❤
