knowing when to make shifts

6 Nov

mini shifting — the process of making little changes  in your daily life so you can change the course in your journey.

do you ever sit and really analyze your life? do you dissect it down and wonder why you reached where you are now, how you got on this new path and what it all means? i do this frequently. i am a virgo and a seeker. i have a tendency to analyze the crap out of things. usually to the death of a subject. i enjoy the nuts and bolts of how and why things work, and how to fine tune and get the  most out of every drop of life.

changes in your environment happen every day. changes with the kids,  material possessions, friends, and loved ones. change is needed to bring in a mix to stale energy and to get it flowing again. change really is good if you can be open to it and it’s lessons. my life has changed so much in the past few years that i allow myself now to just sit in it and embrace it with curiosity. what will this bring i ask myself and wait with wonder. sometimes it is painful and having to deal with an ex regarding financial issues, kids and some are joyous like a new relationship and realizing he is your soul mate. these changes are what define us in life. our reactions, our passions, or ability to shift through them.

it makes me think about driving up the california coast in a little sports car. as you turn corners and go around mysteriously beautiful bends you need to shift. change a gear so you can pick up speed or slow down and be a little more cautious.  without shifting you could potentially miss out of some amazing beauty or you could put yourself in a questionable situation.

mini shifting is just simply adjusting your situation and taking action at that time. this concept can be used in any situation in your life.

if you are thinking about becoming organized in your home or office — mini shift your time and spend 20 minutes just picking up the loose items around one room. do the dishes and clean up the counters before bed. clean up your workspace on your desk so you come in the next morning feeling relaxed and on top of things.

this mini shifting concept can be used to organize your thoughts and for making life plans. take a moment and shift with a 10 minute stretch or meditation. imagine yourself letting go of a situation that no longer serves you and you replace it with a thought that makes you happy. all of this shifting daily will change your energy pattern and bring new opportunities, power and energy into your life.

try it — you will see. starting small and making daily positive shifts will produce big results later.

a sneak peek into my special sauce

28 Sep

i have been writing a lot lately. i have been spending my time revisiting my organizing how-to books and decided that i wanted to make the meat a little more juicy. i will talk about the basics of organizing and the importance of it yes –but i also want to cover a new formula [or the special sauce as i have been calling it] that i have come to use regularly.  using this approach will bring balance and a new energy into many  lives.

Here is a little peek about one of the juicy ingredients for a healthy, productive and dreamy life.

~~ Affirmations are a key element to my formula. These are simple sayings that will affirm yourself, your beauty and your life. It can be something small like — “today, I feel calm” to “ I am practicing the art of surrender” or ” I trust in the process of my life.”  You can come up with your own, use the ones in the back of this book, or i suggest looking online. You can also use simple words like “trust”, or “i can” and place them on cards around your house. Use whatever rings true to you and feels good.

What you fill your mind with will also flow out. Fill your ears, your mouth your eyes , your mind with beauty, notes of self love and in no time you will be loving yourself and feeling good.

I will tell you that you should never and i repeat never feel bad for loving yourself. Do not ever apologize for liking and loving who you are. There have been people that say that your ego will blow up and you will become a snob but that is not true at all. The opposite happens. When you learn to accept yourself, and live present in your life and skin just the way you are because you are special and made perfectly. when you show your inner girl/boy that you will nurture her/him and take care of her/him your heart grows. Not just for yourself but for other people. You start to radiate a love that comes from the creator of the universe and there is no better feeling in the world. Everything in life is possible with this kind of love and support.

Your prescription for a healthy, balanced and loving life is to tell yourself something nice at the minimum of three times a day, see what happens and how you feel.

What you choose to spend your energy on is what you will get back. If you love yourself, love will find you and others will love you. If you are angry and focus on the negative, only negative and hostile situations will find you and come into your life.

Learn to take some time to get to know yourself. I read on a girls blog once [sorry i don/t remember who it was for credit but she is fabulous!] that she has been dating herself,  has fallen in love, will get the courage to pop the question and the honeymoon is going to be fabulous. It was so beautiful because she was talking about herself. She was taking the time to figure herself out and fall in love with her faults, strengths and everything in between. When we learn to put ourselves first everything falls into balance because you are then working off a solid and firm foundation. ~~

I just felt inspired today to include this bit in my post for the day. I have been loving myself over here and nurturing this heart of mine and tending to my flame of passion.

so today — i rock — you rock — we are all truly fabulous and what a great journey we are on.

step into the light and make some room

16 Sep

lots of early morning swirling thoughts going on in my head. 7 am inspirations, messages come through load and clear to my soul and just again…feeling a little swirly. i like it.

i have been working on putting my books together again on organizing. i have had a few versions and they were set up to help people go through their space by themselves. some of you are a grab the bull by the horns type and others i know need some gentle love pushes and assurance when it comes to dealing with their stuff.

i am feeling a tug to move a little bit more back into that direction. simple i want to encourage to create beautiful spaces and tranquil lifestyles.  people — it/s time to step into our power.

today as i write — i came across a blog article that Danielle LaPorte wrote. one of the things she said was — “making space signals the universe that you/re ready for ideal…or at the very least, much improved.”

powerful statement. when we let go it allows something better to take up that space.  it does not matter if it is emotional stuff or physical stuff, we all have it and have to deal with it and what it represents  in our lives.

organizing your thoughts, organizing your dreams, organizing your time, and organizing your homes is something we all deal with. the good, the bad, the ugly and the way to put it all in it/s rightful place to achieve balance and harmony.

look for my e-series books that will be coming out in the near future.

peace and love to you all today.
