A practice that gets me through life to manage even the hardest of things. Often we get so caught up in our situations, relationships and problems. We circle them about, use our imagination to make them even larger and create emotional intensity. I understand there are issues in life and indeed they are hard. However, from one who as others has had to face and deal with quite large situations that I could tapple over, I have used this practice often and it works.
As many tools as we can gather to support our experience here is a key to a healthy, abundant life of flow. I imagine I have a wand that flows out incredible sparkles where ever I cast it. Seems silly yet I call it my blessing wand. When things get too large, I feel overwhelmed or confused, as soon as I can catch my breath, I use this wand in my imagination to bless whatever is occurring. I say it out loud if I can, at least in my mind, I bless the situation! Often it makes me giggle which will shift my panic energy. It also puts a positive thought and emotion onto the situation, person or problem I am having.
Simple, magical and shifting in energy. This begins to relax your nervous system, bring in a lighter view and clarity to face the strife. When panic is alleviated, clearer options, ideas and ways to support you can come forward. I often do this as well when I feel good. Passing cars on the road, silently as I see people in public, a way to feel good for what I have and share this positivity into the world.
Life is a play filled with drama, blessing and hardship. Always a perspective shift is how we get ourselves going forward again. It is worth using this simple, playful tool of magical support!
May you be blessed with all you need!

We all have heard that the words we say to ourselves make a difference in our experience. We know this on a mental level. However, often our mind patterns still yip at us with these unkind things. So often we are flying through life and we really don't notice how we speak to ourselves. We all have shifted things here and there and then we forget about this ongoing work.
Many had a hard year last year as did I. I found myself catching up with others and repeating how challenged I was. Listening to others life and what was going on, I continually felt what a hard year it was. It took me to mid January to feel like I was recovered somewhat from the exhaustion. I found myself thinking the year was starting slow, wanting to be inspired. I keep resting until it bubbled up in me to take inspired action. I would check in with myself and found I just wasn't too delighted about the slow regroup.
Suddenly yesterday I awoke and was beginning my day and thought, you keep telling yourself what a hard year you had that it is effecting how you are now. Just the thought of it, made me heavy and sluggish. A light bulb went off inside me that said, why don't you start saying life is easy and fun? In that moment I realized how I kept bringing in this sluggish, hard way by my chatter and recall of the previous year. I suddenly filled with energy!
This chatter we say to ourselves and others is far more powerful than we realize. As I decided to tell myself that life was fun and easy, a whole new world opened. Again, we all know that our words have power yet we don't realize just how much on a daily basis. Our mind rambles in its judgments and patterns and can really mess with us experiencing the world ! Far more than we want to admit.
I inspire you to listen to yourself in this new year. What ever was before is past. Each morning you can call in the next thing in whatever form you want. The mind likes grooves and patterns. It is not to say that it is not truth but in subtle ways you must watch how it is reminiscing. No one wants to mingle in the challenging times but the mind is programmed too. Be watchful. I know these things too, yet here I am sharing how it was lowering my vibe in a subtle way, speaking my old experience.
Keep clear and real with what you are experiencing and how you describe your world to yourself and others. If it is not happening the way you want, shift your perspectives, words. Call in what it is you desire easily by making a new mind pattern that chimes in. The world has shifted very quickly in the few days I have been letting the new idea run in my mind. Rather than running through what exhausted me which exhausts me in the present thinking about it, I am claiming a new reality.
We are so powerful! We also have many moving parts so awareness is key. We have to be diligent in observing ourselves. When you have been in a challenge, you have created ways to get through. However, watch that they don't linger. Doing these emotional and mental check ins are invaluable. They can reset your entire disposition! I am enjoy this fun and easy life! It really is that simple!
Make sure you are creating a new year and not reliving the emotions and thoughts of a previous time! It is your responsibility. It is in your power to shift. Be very mindful for it is a subtle game this plane. Be alert. Claim what you want and notice the power of your words!

As a playful girl, I like to try all kinds of things. I love anything that can give me greater energy and positive direction. I love oracle cards, look up messages of animals that cross my path with intensity for me to see, I like to carry crystals, use all kinds of energy medicine. I take tinctures from herbs, essential oils for health and scent, I enjoy it all. I consider myself the elixir queen because this is all fun and creates awareness and presence.
I love oracles cards, opening books to a page to see what message it has for me. I see road signs that say the perfect thing or numbers throughout life repeatedly, hear people speak of what I thought of or had a question about, all these are synchronicities to life.
I call it the magic hand! When we ask a question with intention, it comes in from book, sign, person, song, quote, animal, where ever. The magic hand directing us to the perfect answer in a plethora of ways. This coincidence and synergy is really the workings of energy, the environment is actually reacting to us. We flood the energy field with a desire and it will bring it in to us if we pay attention. Certain people always see certain animals or numbers. These are all ways our environment can speak to us if we notice.
Oracle cards are a great way to set the tone for the day. There are so many in all flavors beyond the traditional tarot. They have heath activities, positive quotes, Goddesses, Masters, Animals, Sacred Geometry, Sacred Symbols, Angels, you name it and there is a deck. A current rage, coaches are making their own with their inspiration toward a creative life. I have often considered making a deck. I find these playful for daily life. I have used them when in crisis and feeling lost. I learned about my empathic gift through a Goddess deck that taught me all my emotions and the value of each of them.
In the old days perhaps these were considered associated with dark, evil or fortune tellers. However, Oracles like the Oracle of Delphi, many great leaders and seers have been revered throughout time. These days they are accepted as normal. Truly another way to send out an intention for help and an opportunity to give you an answer to your confusion. They guide and inspire, give you a new look at things or perspective shift when you are stuck. They are a way to add play and inspiration in life.
They don't tell the future. I see it as they answer us in ways to see how things may play out if we act a certain way and usually just give us another view of a situation or problem. They reflect back knowledge of our intuition that we already have. I find them as part of the magic hand for that when we seek, they help us find solutions and ideas that are eluding us. I use them to motivate me, give me a perspective for a day or quote of attitude as I go through my day.
They are so fun, playful, helpful and inspiring. I have never been with one who doesn't pick a card or message that did not resonate with what they needed to hear. Always relevant, always supportive and inspiring. Even when people get a "negative" message when they are in a darker state of consciousness, cards can speak to the value of this negativity which is really just a lesson. Not a bad thing.
I inspire you to consider using them to support creativity and motivation in life. There are many that are not at all esoteric but practical for every day life. It reflects important things to you and supports life to be more joyous. It develops your connection to knowing for you always know you got the right card so the answers is already within. These support you in trust in yourself, trust that the world is supporting you and give you greater present awareness by noticing things going on around. Realizing that it is a helpful place here and that a greater good is about.
A Playful, relaxing, inspiring, intuitive Tool! All building your trust and confidence in self and the world! I Love all these things!
P. S. My daughter is new to doing oracle readings on line for each month. Here is her link and please support her if you are inclined!

We all are so in our heads all the time. We have been trained that mind is our most powerful tool to solve things. At times, absoulutely, yet often we see through our fogged glasses of old patterns. The mind is one of many tools. It makes sense of our other tools but it is only one of the many we have. Our senses are very powerful and continually giving and receiving messages from the environment. With the way of the new decade, many people"s senses are sharpening and giving us great information that we may not pay attention to. Using the intuition has more power than just the mind.
The intuition is the master tool we have. It even knows beyond the current time space continuum. I have grabbed things in the morning that made no sense and later in the day, it became clear why I had something with me that I needed. So I believe it can prepare us for the future circumstances. Wild to consider but I just go with it. The intuition can be connected to and intensified. It starts through one of our five senses. Some people see things, others hear, others feel environments and there are those whose smell gives indications. To use our intuition, we need then to be aware of our senses This only comes when we are in the body, noticing the senses.
As we spend so much time in our minds, not paying attention ot our senses, the first thought is to ground into our body. There are many ways to do this, nature being a simple one. What grounding means is to be in your body, not head so you are in the middle of your being. Then the 5 senses as well as the mind can inform you. We mostly ride out of our body, like in the cartoon bubble of words. It is outside the cartoon character next to the head. This visual of it, supports you to understand being in the body. If we were in our heart center or solar plexus in the cartoon, we would be centered and grounded inside our body temple.
A way to get to this position is just noticing your senses. That is why nature grounds. We breath and notice with all our senses and it relaxes us, clears and brings us centered and present. We practice by noticing and getting ourselves back inside our body being. The senses the tools of the body.
I have been using a practice of touching my heart as I ask myself questions or direction. This brings me into my body, into my heart which is considered a second brain of more power and the mind isn't running my way. I have played with this regarding small and little things. I take 3 deep breaths and then ask is this healthy for me? Is this my direction? Anything really! I PLAY with it.The picture above is a heart mudra. You can try that or I just touch my heart.
As we ground into our body, become more present and connect with our heart brain, the answers I get are the best. I don't always listen especially at first but later I realized I heard the more correct answer than my mind said. This builds trust in using your body temple, your vehicle of the physical world more often along with our thinking. Using the senses empowers your intuition which gets stronger just by playing with it. It is easy to play with, you don't have to listen to it. Yet it will support you to be present and factor in the information you get from the world..
Learning this all 10 years ago, I am amazed at how sinking into my body, listening to my senses and using this intuition has evolved and continues too. It is a smarter way to approach life, using all the tools of awareness we have rather than just taking directions from the mind. You find more clarity, answers, joy and fun for you are actually experiencing the world more. You are noticing with the senses and this alone brings more joy. You also realize how connected we are to the world and how great our body is. We also realize Life is more magical than you knew. Our body is connected to the world in a physical way that has 5 basic ways of sensing. In being aware of these you feel the world and feel better. You participate in the environment so lightness is about and this develops your sixth sense. It just naturally comes forward for you are listening to the world.
Using the heart to get answers about what you are not sure is a powerful tool. This too is tapped into your intuition so you strengthen your knowing . We all have this magical gift in our own way. Cultivating it, playing with it only supports you in life. I have found that it brings in more fun. It astounds me and then I am delighted. I am in more joy.
Play with grounding and noticing your senses. Put your hand on your heart, 3 deep breathes and ask a question. See what comes and try it. It is just a new tool that supports your body being present for you are being kinestetic as well as using the emotions and the mind all together. Alignment we call this. Why not investigate? There is nothing to lose. It is all about play. It brings in more joy, lightness, fun and high vibe to say the least. I think you will awaken to the incredibly magical world around you at all times that you have missed living in the bubble words outside of your body. We have this great body! Use it for all it offers and the senses the gift of it.
Your body knows how to rock the physical plane and the intuition is the leader. You will find a whole new world! You will know why I am so happy even in the darkest of times. The whole world is talking to me and supporting me. I just need to listen to it all then act!
