What’s one of your favorite Thanksgiving memories?

What’s one of your favorite Thanksgiving memories?

I was thinking about this today, thinking about this Thanksgiving and remembering a very special Thanksgiving when I was young. It’s still one of my favorite memories and I am fortunate to have lots of them.

I think I was around 5 years old and it was the night before Thanksgiving.

A big truck pulled up to our house and seven or so of my dad’s friends all came into our dining room. They started to bring in boxes of food, veggies, turkeys, and cans and all sorts of stuff was piled up everywhere. Then, my dad pulled out a long list and all the men started filling the boxes from this list. I knew some of the men, but not all of them.

Of course I asked what it was all about.

My dad told me this was a list from the priests and ministers and rabbi from our town of all the people who may not have enough money to have a good Thanksgiving dinner. So he and his friends got donations of food and money from stores and people to fill these boxes so everyone could have a great Thanksgiving.

I asked to help and I got to count out the potatoes and put them in the right boxes. They kept talking and laughing and working until there were piles of boxes filled with food in the living room and dining room.

Once the boxes were packed they took out a map and put it on the table. My dad explained that they were figuring out the best roads to take so they could deliver everything.

When I asked him who the families were, he smiled and said, “We don’t know. We ask the priests and rabbi not to give us their names, just their addresses so they won’t feel funny or embarrassed that they don’t have enough food this year.

I know my eye must have been wide open at this point. Then he said, “We drive to their house, put the food on the porch or front step. Then we ring the bell and drive away.”

I was in awe. I didn’t know what to say, but I was so proud of him.

They took all of the boxes to the truck and came back in to say goodbye.
Then I looked at all the men in my house and saw they had hats on. I’d never seen those hats before and so I asked one of the men what they were.

He said, “We are veterans and these are the hats we wore when we fought for our country.”

I looked again and all the men smiled. They wore their hats, stood taller and looked at me. And my dad said, “You know, we all just really like to help.”

Then they left laughing and joking and got into the truck and drove away.

I’m tearing up right now, remembering that band of brothers in my house making Thanksgiving for people they would never really know.

Thank you Dad, and all your friends for a simple memory that still moves and inspires me today!

Love, Self-Discovery and Shopping

We can’t get enough love.

We have to sing about it and celebrate it and tell people about our love. We want and need more love in our lives and our world.

Self-discovery is a pathway to love.

Self-discovery is you, engaging in your Self to find your beauty, love and purpose. When you’re really and continually engaged in your own self-discovery, you open to your magnificence. Through self-knowing you resonate to those qualities even more. You open to the love within and the love that radiates.

Shopping is actually a journey of self-discovery.

You see, when you’re shopping, you’re looking for things that enhance and complement your life. To do that, to find what you’re looking for, you have to know who you are and what you want. You have to know your comfort level, your dreams, what you want to do, what inspires you. And then you go shopping. Shopping is your quest! And when  you think of shopping, the energy shifts into clarity, fun and the unexpected!

In this episode of the Cosmic Coffee Break, I’m guiding you in a meditation and wisdom teaching, Love, Self-Discovery and Shopping, to will help you connect with the power of self-discovery in shopping and attune to the true frequencies and multi-level qualities of love today!

If you think about looking for love as shopping, then you can see the journey and play in the beauty of your own truth.

Join me for this fabulous journey of Love, Self-Discovery and Shopping!

RESONATING WITH THE SUN

Earth’s natural cycles bring us to profound understanding of who we are and how our lives can grow and evolve. The brilliance of our guiding orb brings flowers to bloom and plans to fruition. In Spiritual, Mystical and Metaphysical conversations, the Sun represents spiritual intelligence. Light is always a symbol of intelligence, and the sun represents the highest form of intelligence, spiritual intelligence. It’s symbolic of the light the Creator.

Summer Solstice and Solar Eclipse are both perfect times to resonate with the sun, and acknowledge the Sun’s physical, metaphysical and vibrational gifts. It’s time to let all things come into greater awareness in the light. You can bring more light and energy into your life when you sync up with the cycles of our world. Continue reading

Spring Forward into Your Life

Spring is the time for beginnings. I love spring.

The fullness of energy is flowing towards new awakenings. We really enter a new world, a world with flowers, returning birds and hopes and possibilities born and renewed!

Let’s Celebrate the beginnings, new awakenings and fresh ideas that Spring inspires.

Each person’s intuitive centers are open more fully in spring. That means your perception centers are open to more creativity, ingenuity, opportunity and more delight. With your intuitive centers more open and accessible, you can receive the benefit of a greater perspective in your personal life and your business.

Because your intuitive centers are open more fully in spring, I see this unique seasonal opening for all of my clients. As an intuitive and spiritual life coach, I can see those new energies and possibilities opening your intuitive centers. I’ve just completed my “Unleash Your Intuition” summit and I’m preparing more wonderful things for you – like videos and more about Intuition, Soul Purpose and Fulfillment, I know how much timing means. This is a season of opening, awakening, possibility, opportunity and Divine timing!

I have a 2 part new Cosmic Coffee Break podcast episodes, Spring Forward into Your Life to give you some vibrational oomph! They both increase your intuitive connections.

Spring Forward into Your Life Part 1 has wisdom teachings and a special meditation provides clues and guidance that will help you understand and recognize opportunities for your professional and business life.

You Are The Dream – New Episodes of the Cosmic Coffee Break

You Are The Dream

Our dreams and goals are fascinating and tricky things. Sometimes you have dreams, sometimes you have old dreams and sometimes, you just dump those dreams.

In each part of your life we can have dreams for who we are and what we want. It’s okay? When I started going deeper into the energy of dreams, I could see that sometimes dreams really excite you and move you forward. And sometimes your dreams actually hold you back from your life.

In these two episodes of the Cosmic Coffee Break, You Are The Dream Parts 1 & 2, the energy, wisdom teachings and meditations will lift your dreams to frequencies and actions that are in line with who you are, today in your life.

Let’s start with the dreams that can hold you back.
I know it’s even crazy to think that a dream can hold you back, because dreams are meant to inspire you to fulfill yourself. But there can be old dreams that you had that are in your way. Maybe you had dreams in the past and they just didn’t come real or they did, and now the time is over. Sometimes your old dreams are in the way. Some dreams are obsolete. Those old dreams can interfere with creating your life right now.

It’s All About Listening

One of the things that I realized in a very fun way, is that sometimes the most profound advice you can follow is “take the time to listen.” Listen to yourself. Listen to the guidance that comes your way. Listen to your intuition. Listen to the wisdom shared from other people who inspire you!

You can listen in quick bursts of time
that will uplift, support and change your life!

I’m doing my Cosmic Coffee Break podcast with 3 new episodes per week! I love creating these podcasts and I know it’s growing. It’s really exciting to know that people all over are having coffee with me! Yes! They take the time to do the beautiful quick meditations, shift their energy and then go back to doing ‘whatever’ with a lighter, brighter vibration, awareness and heart. So gorgeous!

Garden Of Thoughts

Are you aware of your thoughts?

Can you consider that your thoughts are not really fleeting and random, they are something more?

The other day, the Divine shared a wonderful message and vision with me to share with you. She revealed the Garden Of Thoughts. This beautiful garden with large trees, beautiful meandering pathways lined with flowers, and special areas filled with food plants and herbs was the Garden Of Thoughts. Every plant, every living plant was a thought.

Some of them were quiet, nurturing thoughts. Some of those plants were vibrant life changing thoughts. And those trees and perennials? Those were the thoughts that extend through time. Those were the thoughts that span generations, form the basis of some of the most powerful ideas that carry humanity forward into a higher focus. It was all Magnificent.

Join me as we meander and stroll through the Garden Of Thoughts and discover some truly beautiful magic. This five part series of the Cosmic Coffee Break, Garden Of Thoughts, has special meditations to empower and bless your thinking.

Enter the Garden of Thoughts and
Discover some truly beautiful magic.

Catch and Release

Do you know that what stops you, or slows you down or diverts you has nothing to do with your dreams?

There are undercurrents that mess with your plans.
Hidden in these undercurrents are all of these ideas, thoughts, emotions and past situations that influence you. It’s not just about getting stuff and reaching goals; it’s also about releasing all of the negativity or restrictions or inappropriate aspects of your life and making room for more of you.

It’s time to try something different.
Get ready to “Catch and Release.”

“Catch and Release” is a new practice I’m sharing to help you let go of One Small Thing, one problem, one nagging thought, one blocked emotion, one unevolved concept that’s no longer beneficial to your life. This opens the way for your dreams to be fulfilled.
That’s “Catch and Release.”

Are you ready to swim in a really big pond?

In this episode of the Cosmic Coffee Break, I’m guiding you in my new Catch and Release practice so you can clear your attachments, energy and thoughts to create more fulfillment and purpose for new beginnings in your life.
