Tuning Into The Powers Of The Gemini Super Full Moon

g1by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
on December 13th/14th we experience the last of three Super Full Moons which have blessed us with intense energetic impact over the past three month. This stellar events moved us collectively from the fiery energies of the Aries powers in October, to the grounding and nurturing days of the Taurus Super Moon in November; to this airy, highly playful and communicative Gemini Super Full Moon number three of the year.
During this week, we are invited to take teachings about the plus and the B side of things, people and situations. It is the Gemini’s message to remind us of the essentially two-faced nature of all things. So be prepared for insides about your life regarding: following the pattern and rules of society – versus deciding freely and spontaneously; the difference between simply fulfilling our duties and truly taking responsibility & the gravity of human life versus the ease of being.

Make sure to have a stable inner connection with your breathing (it is an air sign!!) and your feeling body! One of the challenges of this Super Full Moon is the instability it brings into the emotional and mental body of the human collective – Pay Attention! Saturn squares Chiron during this Full Moon, which makes us a bit too sensitive in our feelings, but brings the chance to shift our spiritual understanding of healing the emotional body into higher vibrations.
Mercury the ruling planet of Gemini, is in Capricorn conjunct with Pluto. This brings up the question „where are you holding yourself back“? Who is aware how to dance with the elements, can make this energy field their friend by practicing mental clarity, and letting the wind take care of the rest ;-)!
A T-square of Jupiter in Libra / Pluto in Capricorn / Jupiter apposing Uranus & Aries is bringing forward, an intense revolutionary force of energy right now. It can set into motion a revolutionary push for authentic equality and harmonic, balanced ways of living on planet earth. A way how to profit from the powers provided, is to study again the Native American ethic laws – which are providing insides how to behave as human beings fit for a Golden Age of Aquarius.

THIS PRINCIPLES ARE TRANSLATIONS OF THE HERMETIC LAWS
I. MENTALISM = EQUALITY OF ALL EXISTENCE / BROTHERHOOD OF MEN
Everything sprouts from the same mental essence, translates as “we are all equal”. Now in daily life on planet earth, that does not necessarily mean we have the same chances or the same blessed start in life, but it does mean we all have an equal right to live!!! Which leads to the understanding that we are hear as guardian of the animal, the plants, the rivers and the mountains – not as their masters.. The only one we are asked to master – is ourselves!!11II. CORRESPONDENCE = ACCEPTANCE OF ALL POWERS OF SPIRIT AND MATTER
This law teaches us about our constant interconnected communication with another and the daily use of our 3rd eye for communication based on vibration. Of our responsibility to take care of our emotional field, so we do not effect the surrounding we are in negatively. And it requests from us to understand, accept and integrate our divinity, our humaneness, the inner feminine and masculine energies.

III. VIBRATION = AWARENESS AND RESPECT FOR ALL MANIFESTED EXISTENCE
This is as easy as respecting and applying in daily life, authentic human rights, animal rights and even the rights of planet earth and all her manifestations, for a dignified and safe life!! But not only that, it also means to show respect for the manifestations of what we ourselves and everybody else have to bring into the world. Of adoration for the human path to come to our divine essence and most authentic expression.

IV. POLARITY = PEACE BETWEEN ALL TRIBES AND BEINGS
The principle of polarity is in the middle of them all – and equally it is inside of us human beings, as it represents the “everything connecting higher heart”. The sacred sanctuary of an authentic truth seeker, the only place where true lasting world peace can sprout from. The principle shows that all the things we are fighting about with others – are essentially within the circle of completion of our own spiritual awakening.

V. RHYTHM & CYCLE = JUSTICE AND HONOR IN MAINTAINING THE HUMAN RIGHTS
This sounds like it would be a more official matter in everyday life, that the government and other big institutions took responsibility for. But in reality this principle corresponds with our ego, and the translation is about each and everyone of us!! Its about how much respect do we show for the normal everyday survival needs of every being on earth. How balanced we run our business and how careful we communicate, when we are in dispute with others. And it is about how gracefully we can surrender to the flow of life as given.

VI. CAUSE & EFFECT = AUTHENTICITY AND HONESTY IN THOUGHT, WORD AND ACTION
Be who you really are; express what ever the divine guidance within you demands you to bring into the world; only say what you really mean and WALK YOUR TALK!!

VII. GENDER = TO MAINTAIN OUR STRENGTH IN ORDER TO INTENSIFY THE POWER AND TO USE THE POWER ONLY TO CREATE POSITIVELY
This allows us to “emotionally get it”, that our physical bodies are masculine and feminine simply to represent the universe authentically, not to separate us from another with stupid human concepts and ideas. That the whole world is relationship, everything we do effects ALL of us plus, that all manifestations need a seed and space to grow!!! By taking responsibility for this awareness, we will automatically seek to only use our strength for aligned manifestations.gmDear Ones, where ever you are, what ever you do, the hermetic laws are working for you, on you and within you. Allow them to guide you in your attempt to bring your divine kingdom from the higher  blueprint, into realization for all beings to live in a Golden Age of Humanity. May your insides be of much help for you and the shifts bring tons of magic into your life!!
Surrender and Full Moon Blessings!

In Harmonic Flow With The Rhythms And Cycles Of Life

bby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
in the article Cosmic Alchemy – Uniting The Hermetic Laws & The Native American Ethic Code
I shared insides how the Code of Ethics and the Hermetic Principles are standing in direct relationship with another. We also talked about the need for humanity to collectively develop a higher level of emotional intelligence, so we can apply the laws easily in our everyday life. And today we will take a closer look at the 5th divine law, the principle of Rhythms and Cycles, and its influence on the collective awakening process.
This principle corresponds with our 3rd chakra, the physical expression of our free will, our will power and the ability to bring our first chakra seeds, into physical manifestation in our world. That makes it so important to understand the deeper meaning of this profound teachings, so we may find surrender to their guidance.

A personal message to all my facebook friends!! FB is limiting the distribution of my posts daily more. If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!! Over time I might not be able to put in the FB time, if it does not lead to what it is about – SPREADING THE WORD ;-)!

What the Principle of Rhythms and Cycles explains is that:
“Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides;
all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in
everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the
measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.”

So in everything in the universe there is a measurable motion. This movement goes to and from (something, somewhere, someone); has outflow and inflow; a swing backwards and forwards; a tide-like move like ebb and flow; a high-tide (peek point) and a low-tide (rock bottom), an advance and a retreat; a rising and a sinking. This principle of rhythms and cycles manifests in every single of our creations and distractions in the world; in the rise and fall of our nations; in the life of all things; and finally in the mental state of mankind.mWhat that means for us as human beings is for example: we can kick of a process of healing, but we can not demand when it is finished (how many details and themes will be involved) – and what time-span that takes. We can enter a relationship that feels completely right at the time, but we can not change its natural end. Sure we can prolong the time we are still together or that we do not sign the divorce papers, but when we are truly honest with ourselves – than everyone knows from inside when a love has closed its cycle.

“Patience is a virtue” is a phrase that you for sure have heard before. So what is patience and why would it be a virtue??  Because the higher understanding  and definition of patience is “waiting for results without complaint or creating inner pressure over it”! So patience actually describes our capacity to master our self-control, humility, devotion and surrender to the situation we are in. Our capability to sit in circumstances of emotional-, energetic, physical or spiritual discomfort, without complaining to the universe about it.
And that is what it means to have FAITH. It means we truly take the hard times as much as a blessing, as the good ones. Also cultivating patience is one of our keys to master an inner understanding, for the pattern and designs of the Creation of Life. To be aware of this blueprints, can give us the power to direct energy within these pattern and to shift our inner process much quicker, than when we show resistance to the divine timing.

And most important to understand is, that in order to achieve a state of completion in listening to our higher selves guidance, we have to surrender the free will of our 3rd chakra to the voice of our heart. Only when we can bow our heads and accept what ever timing the bigger plan has for the fulfillment of our dreams and deepest desires, we can truly hear our inner guidance from head to toe.fDear Ones, I hope this insides make it easier for you to take in the details of the principle of rhythm and cycles. You can be sure to flow with the divine plan of creation, if you surrendered and allow divine timing to manifest for you. I wish you divine faith, inner peace and clarity on your journey with the principles!!
Blessings an Divine Creations!

Cosmic Alchemy – Uniting The Hermetic Laws & The Native American Ethic Code

Third eye, clairvoyantby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
a little while ago I shared this article about the Ascended Master couple called Lord Afra and Goddess Africa, who are teaching human beings how to develop emotional intelligence, for a more authentic and truly human future on planet earth. Also I talked in the piece Native American Wisdom for the Collective Awakening Process, about the influence of the Native American Code of Ethics, on our current emotional development as human collective. And today I would like to close this holy circle of divine trinity, with the Master Hermes Trismegistus Thoth, the original transmitter of the Hermetic Laws or The Divine Principles, as they are also called. If you have not heard that name jet, he might be familiar to you as the Roman God Mercurius – or Mercury as people often say.

The hermetic laws are ruling all energetic impacts in our world. When we study them closely, we get a hint of how “the universal system” works. When we apply emotional intelligence in order to translate this mental information into feelings, we arrive at the content of the emotional field the Native American Code of Ethics should feel like in everyday life.

 “The Principles of Truth are Seven; he who knows these,
understandingly, possesses the Magic Key before whose
touch all the Doors of the Temple fly open.”

divine principleTHE HERMETIC PRINCIPLES
I. THE PRINCIPLE OF MENTALISM

The All is mind; the universe is mental; everything material emerges from a first though.

II. THE PRINCIPLE OF CORRESPONDENCE
As above, so below; as below, so above; to accomplish the miracle of unity. Everything is formed from the contemplation of unity, and all things come about from unity, by means of adaptation.

III. THE PRINCIPLE OF VIBRATION
Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates. From existence down to matter – everything is in vibration; the higher the vibration – the higher the position in the scale. Every level of creation equals on range of vibration.
Note: If you want to heal, help the world – raise your vibration!!!

IV. THE PRINCIPLE OF POLARITY
Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its opposites; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.

V. THE PRINCIPLE OF RHYTHM & CYCLES
“Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.”

VI. THE PRINCIPLE OF CAUSE AND EFFECT
Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the Law!

VII. THE PRINCIPLE OF GENDER
Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes of vibration and manifestation.

laTHE LAWS TRANSLATED INTO THE NATIVE AMERICAN CODE OF ETHICS
I. EQUALITY OF ALL EXISTENCE / BROTHERHOOD OF MEN
That everything sprouts from the same mental essence, translates as “we are all equal”. Now in daily life on planet earth, that does not necessarily mean we have the same chances or the same blessed start in life, but it does mean we all have an equal right to live!!!

II. ACCEPTANCE OF ALL POWERS OF SPIRIT AND MATTER
This law teaches us about our constant interconnected communication with another. Of our responsibility to take care of our emotional field, so we do not effect our surrounding negatively. And it requests from us to understand, accept and integrate our divine, our human, the inner feminine and masculine energies.

III. AWARENESS AND RESPECT FOR ALL MANIFESTED EXISTENCE
This is as easy as respecting and applying in daily life, authentic human rights, animal rights and even the rights of planet earth and all her manifestations, for a dignified and safe life!! But not only that, it also means to show respect for the manifestations of what we ourselves and everybody else have to bring into live, to come to our divine essence and most authentic expression.

IV. PEACE BETWEEN ALL TRIBES AND BEINGS
When you look at the chart above, where the divine laws are lined up, you see that the principle of polarity is in the middle of them all – and so it is inside of us human beings. It represents the “everything connecting higher heart” in us – the only place where true lasting world peace can sprout from.

V. JUSTICE AND HONOR IN MAINTAINING THE HUMAN RIGHTS
This sounds like it would be a big official thing in everyday life, that the government and other big institutions took responsibility for. But in reality this principle corresponds with our ego, and the translation is about each and everyone of us!! Its about how much respect do we show for the normal everyday survival needs of every being on earth. How balanced we run our business and how careful we communicate, when we are in dispute with others.

This allows us to “emotionally get it”, that our physical bodies are masculine and feminine simply to represent the universe authentically, not to separate us from another thru stupid human concepts and ideas. And that the whole world is relationship, everything we do effects ALL of us, and that all manifestations need a seed and space to grow!!!

Dear Ones, where ever you are, what ever you do, the hermetic principles are working for you, on you and within you. I hope you will have lots of fun studying the material, and than to go out and see them reflected in many situations of your life! A very productive way to go with the studies is, to first rise the awareness for a principle, study its content well and than let life show you, what it actually means by that ;-).. Allow them to guide you, while you bring your little kingdom from the divine blueprint, into realization for all beings to live in the Golden Age of Aquarius.
Surrender and Divine Blessings!

What’s Wrong with Voluntourism? “Everything” – This Beneficiary Feels

aaDear Friends,
at the beginning of last month I shared an expect from the article “are you a truly spiritual person, or simply full of it”, written & translated by Giulio Pietro Benati, where the author shared his thoughts and concerns about the “fake spiritualism”, that also seams to have made its way into the awakening movement of our society. The question was raised what the student of spiritual practices truly gains, when the exercise is rather consumed as under fashion demands, than driven by the desire to surrender to the teachings in everyday life. Today’s piece is a cry for more attention towards our giving, and if everything given as a present – anyway still has a price in this world.

Since eleven years of my life, I have the incredible blessing of spending time in my wonderful second home; San Marcos La Laguna, Solola, in Guatemala. In this little highland country side town, we are living together in a wild mix of world people. The original San Marcos population are Mayan people, from the tribe of the Kaqckikel, and the rest are a crazy colorful mix of foreigners, from all countries, cultures, character, colors and languages of the world. You could say the divine plan has used its complete crayon color box in San Marcos La Laguna.
Something I watched over all these years is – the coming of the archetype of the “helper and healer”, with or without any kind of religious background, inspired to “safe or local population” from their lot. People who often very quickly, very profoundly get frustrated with the locals respond (or NON RESPOND) to their efforts. So I found it very interesting to read this intense piece from a person who actually received all this “supporters” gives AND takes.

A personal message to all my facebook friends!! FB is limiting the distribution of my posts daily more. If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!! Over time I might not be able to put in the FB time, if it does not lead to what it is about – SPREADING THE WORD ;-)!

Dear Ones, I hope you enjoy the read. I hope the authors fiery words will make one or the other of us check in again, if all our givings are truly as unconditionally as we would like them to be.
Love & Peaceful Awakening!

Edith

pocc5q6kw06photo: Prisca                               I am the default brown girl in your dorm room pictures. 

written by Prisca Dorcas:
I will preface this by saying that a lot of my doctors and dentists were white Americans, and that I have a soft spot in my heart for those people because they are working hard to change someone else’s life. Access to medical care, good medical care, is nearly impossible for many poor folks in Latin American countries and the Caribbean. These doctors and dentists came into communities that most outsiders will not step foot in.
In fact, my first tooth was pulled by a white American dentist when I was a kid growing up in Nicaragua, and I remember the care and attention I got like it was yesterday. You always remember your first visit to a dentist, it sticks with you. Another time I had a huge fall off my bike, and a white American dentist was staying at our home and he sewed me up, giving me seven very necessary stitches. I will always remember this. I also remember that they never asked me for a picture. They were too busy helping people. I hold these people who come to our countries and do that kind of work in high regard. Voluntourists and missionaries are another story.

Why We Should Listen to Our Inner Brujas:
Gospel Outreach came to Nicaragua when I was a little girl. All of my toys, clothes, and much of our food came from ships that were stocked with their goods. I remember walking into those boats and seeing piles of toys and boxes upon boxes of minute soups. These much-needed supplies were crucial to my childhood. We were that poor. But the people sending this very important stuff decided that they needed to see the faces of the lives they were changing. It was not enough to just help, they wanted to see where their selfless donations were going.
I have many childhood memories in Nicaragua that include voluntourists and missionaries. I remember that they were really kind, almost too kind. When you grow up poor, you have a lot of street smarts and reading people comes second nature. It was like they were trying to make up for something. They really wanted us to like them, because they loved us — indiscriminately. It was the sort of love where they did not get our mailing addresses or phone numbers, because it was not about becoming lifelong friends. They loved being around me, it was something about my poverty, brownness, and how they felt like they were saving me. They loved that feeling.
It was as though in exchange for life-giving goods we had to give them a life-changing experience. We had to welcome them to our lands with our arms wide open, as though they were blameless as to how our country was in such distress. As if they did not inherit their comfort and safety from the presidents and governments that they had elected who had done this to us. They wanted us to say mil gracias to their smiling faces as if reparations were not due, deserved, and rightfully ours.indexAn Open Letter to My Gringo Boyfriend:
We have always been able to see right through this facade. Since I was five years old I saw right through it. I probably did not have the words as a kid, but I knew you were trying to get something out of me. I do not have fond memories of the Beckys and Chads who came to my country and took pictures with me so that they could hang the photos in their dorm rooms and go on with their lives. Those same Beckys did not stand up against Trump’s xenophobic agenda. The Chads stayed silent during that Cinco de Mayo party that their roommates hosted, perpetuating problematic stereotypes about ALL Latinxs. The Beckys know that NAFTA and CAFTA rulings keep kids like me in poverty, but still shop at stores known for using slave labor and sweatshops.
Those Chads and Beckys have never done anything for me. When they’re asked why they went to my country, they probably said that they wanted to help, but after they were done planting the trees that their church donated, they went home and did nothing besides wear our trajes tipicos. You left and told your life-changing story, but you’ve dismantled nothing. You’ve helped no one but yourself. What have you done for those brown children in your dorm-room picture since you left? I personally resent that you have pictures of us brown poor children, because while we probably changed your life, you’ve done nothing for us but used our brown bodies as a reminder of your good deeds.

Scorpio New Moon Trust Your Instincts

scorpiNOWDear Friends,
I am sure you heard by now that we are again in a wave of rising frequencies, for the next layer of change in the human collective. The Scorpio New Moon on November 11 is an energetic gateway for even more intense divine blueprints, that will be downloaded on us that day. This is due to a complete alignment between the Sun and the Planet Sirius. Make sure you can spend some time alone this weekend!! Make space in your mind and emotional body, so the shifts can happen with ease. Scorpio is the ruler of death and rebirth, so use the spare time to take a look at what has to die in your life, and what it is that wants to be born now!!! I hope you find support and inspiration here, to make your life truthfully your!!
Love and Moon Shine! Edith

Shared with the kind permission of the wonderful Kelley Rosano:
The Scorpio New Moon on November 11 gives birth to the new you. New Moons are new beginnings. This is a good time to set your intention for what you want to create in the next thirty days. This is also the time to set your intention for what you want to create next year. You can consciously create your heart’s desire. It is time to shed the old skins. Release what is dying. Let go of what is not working for you. Move to higher ground. That is raise your vibration. This Moon will bring your deepest desires to the surface. You know what drives you. What compels you to the choices that you make? Scorpio is about death and rebirth. This is a cycle of completions and new beginnings. You want to get off to a good start.
• What are you completing?
• What doors are opening up for you?
• Where are you ready to go to the next level?
Scorpio rules emotional truth. Among many areas are joint finances and sexuality. Pluto is Scorpios ruling planet. He is in a helpful energy flow with both lights (the Sun and the Moon.) This is good news. Empowering you to regenerate your life and relationships. You can rebuild your body. You can rebuild your finances. You can create a new life. Scorpio is passion. Pluto is power. How you use power. How you get power. How you own our power. Or, how you give your power away. This Moon offers you both passion and power. You need both to get things done. Do what empowers you. Do what makes you strong. Follow your passion.
• What is your truth?
• What is your heart’s desire?
• What is your passion?
• Who or what is holding you back?
• What action steps can you take today to empower yourself?
amoon ScorpioPluto rules transformation. The Sun and Mercury are coupled in Scorpio. This means you are to transform your thinking. Mercury symbolizes how you use your mind. He is the messenger to the Gods. He is the only planet that can travel through Heaven, Earth and the underworld. Mercury shows how your mind moves between the super-conscious, conscious and unconscious positions. How is your mind working for you? Are you proactive or reactive? Are you holding positive expectations for you? What is your truth? How you talk to yourself is how you talk to others. Are you focused on the negative? Are you replaying the same old messages? On the other hand, are you feeding your mind with positive affirmations? Are you seeing the glass half full? New insights and understandings can come to you now. Use the power of your mind to achieve great things. Such as inner peace.
There is more good news. Jupiter is empowering you to make positive changes in your life. Like Pluto, he is in a sextile with the New Moon. You can use this energy to change your life for the better. Change can be exciting and fun. Go with the flow. Be open to new opportunities. Make friends with change. Change is your friend. This includes the painful changes. Shed the old. Embrace the new in your life. Let go of your need to control. Control is fear. Replace your need to make plans. Instead, be spontaneous. Be here now. All your power is in the now. The future will take of itself. Your power is inside of you. It is your Inner Being. Reach for your real power. The surface will not give you strength. Dive deep.
There are two points on the Moon that are very important. These are the North Node and the South Node. The North Node is the direction in life you are to move forward in. The South Node is where you are to travel no more. The transiting North Node moves into Virgo on November 11. This is about your service to the world. Learning, teaching what you know. Honing in on your skills. Your purpose in life. Being humble. Serving. The South Node in Pisces is where you are not to go. Idealizing people or situations. Escaping through drugs or alcohol. Playing the role of victim. The North Node will remain in Virgo until May 2017.
• What is your promise to the universe?
• What have you come to do?
• Who have you come to be?
chiron-planetChiron who acts like a planet in your astrology. Is an asteroid between Saturn and Uranus. Chiron is the bridge from the past to the future. He is in harmonious energy flow with the New Moon. This is about healing you. Healing your heart and mind. This Moon can heal your heavy heart. Let go. Surrender. Love you more than the need for something or someone in your life. You are a great spiritual being. You are a hero for being here at this turning of the ages. This is truth. Mars is the traditional ruler of Scorpio. Mars moves into Libra on Nov 12. This encourages you to form the win/win in your relationships. Using your energy and strength to create harmony. Seek out peaceful resolutions to conflict. Be a warrior for peace. Be the spiritual warrior. Be love in action. Love is the answer. Love. Pluto challenges Venus on Nov 18. Uranus challenges Venus on Nov 23. Pay attention to what you need. Peace at any cost may not be a viable solution.
What is your truth? What do you need? Do what empower you. Do what is right for you. And, it will be right for others. The Scorpio New Moon message is to trust your instincts. The mind can fool you. The eyes and ears can fail you. Your heart can lead you astray. Trust your intuition. This will never fail you. Use your inner power. Your life is your own. Are you in it to win it? The Law of Attraction runs the universe. No matter the astrology. Whether it is easy or difficult. You can succeed. You can make your dreams come true. Trust your instincts. Strengthen your intuition. It is like a muscle. Build it up. The more you use it. The stronger your intuition becomes. Use the Scorpio New Moon to clear out what no longer serves your soul evolution. Use the Personal Path Development Program to create more Joy and power in your life. Make the needed adjustments in your relationships. Choose Love not fear. Do what empowers you. In this way, you are creating the space for a better life. Never complain about anything. This holds you in a state of resistance. It will push away the things that you want. Be in appreciation for all the good in your life.
Say aloud, “Thank you universe for the new opportunities that are now in my life.” This is a good mantra.

The Joy Of Traveling Alone As A Woman

noby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
already several times I mentioned to you the beautiful little traveler town San Marcos La Laguna in Guatemala, that my heart calls home. Every year hundreds of people pass by who are following the Maya trails, to get a taste of the special magic our hometown has to offer (it is an energy vortex, where the waves of Lake Atitlan and the winds over the Vulcan’s – called Xocomil – unite all elements into high frequencies for change). Many of the traveler are women, who are traveling alone. When I talked to friends about it I realized, that in western cultures women still think traveling alone is manly a dangerous business – because our culture and social environment tells us so.
But, have you ever asked yourself how much a woman can gain from traveling on her own? How many new encounter one has when traveling alone? How many enlightening moments of inner strength and newly developed courage? This are experiences, that can change ones perspective on life profoundly. Indeed by now science has confirmed, that money spend on making new experiences in life – is rarely regretted. Verses money spend on goods, is a very temporary satisfaction and therefore the impact of joy passes quickly.

Here are some things that change, if you decide to travel on your own:
1.) You will meet tons of new people:
It is simple the nature of traveling alone, to meet new people every single day. When traveling alone our travel pattern change. Most people tend to seek out maybe a hostel or guest house instead of a nice up-class hotel, you might choose when traveling with your partner or friends. Being on the road and having to navigate new countries, culture and maybe even a change in language, can be pretty demanding in times – so it is just natural for a human being to look for help from others. Maybe you find yourself exchanging more words with a stranger to ask for street directions, than you might have talked to strangers in years ;-).. and that is a good thing!!
Just think about it, everyone you met outside your core family was once a stranger!! Once you spend a fun night with people from parts of the world that your parents think are dark and dangerous, people who are from the religion – that in your hometown is seen as the enemy, people who blow your mind with their beauty first – and then you hear they have very opposite political few’s…, you will never be able to go back to your old thought pattern and perceptions. Allow yourself to be inspired by other people stories and sharing, and reach out to what unites you as humans,, and your world will be changed forever!!1_hippie-movement-is-alive-and-well2.) You might develop more flexibility for the flow of life:
When traveling alone and meeting new people, we tend to allow ourselves more freedom in taking in advice and directions from others. Not only can that have a beautiful and long-lasting positive effect on how we co-operate in our relationships, it also leads to changes in plans. You might hear from this amazing, magic place that right now vibrates so purely inside of you that you know, this is where you should be next. That will not only shake up the plans and concepts you might have had about the outcome of your trip, but it will also allow you to align yourself with your divine guidance. To be in the right place, at the right time. Cultural demands have long taken it from women who live in cities, to be naturally connected to our body’s abilities of sensing the rhythms and cycles of life. The feeling for when a wave of birth begins and when it naturally ends. When we travel alone we feel ourselves deeper and are more willing to listen to the needs of our body, mind and soul. And that brings more authenticity and clarity for our everyday life.

3.) You might be re-connected to your soul purpose:
Like I mentioned above, it is helpful to see, that there is a power in “being in the right place – at the right time”, and that is the power that guides us from within – to encounter the next steps of our soul plan. You can not imagine how many stories I heard by now, about how people found connection to the red line in their own life, when they found themselves in a challenging situation while traveling. My own story included! My conscious path of dedication to living a life
guided by my higher-self, started in 1999 when I had quit employment forever and asked myself who I truly am. I was eager for adventure and the wish to learn another language. My decision fell on Mexico, where I learned Spanish (6 years before my inner plan lead me to fulfilling my souls purpose, in the Highlands of Guatemala – a Central American country). While rooming the magical ruins of Palenque, I felt the energy of death present all over the place. I had visions one after the other, from myself in spaces of native and indigenous cultures, I cried through memories of loss and re-birthed myself into the first version – of the person I am today. You see, traveling alone has a lot of the initiating powers of what natives call a “vision quest” – the humans surrender of old ideas and concepts, to a divinely inspired open mind for an ever changing future. ah4.) Which leads us to “overcoming challenging situations” on your own:
There is an immense beauty and strength in being able to co-operate with a partner and live our lives in a shared experience. Especially in this amazing time of change in our collective relationship paradigms, we are eager to be together in oneness. AND the ability to truly “be with someone else” – comes from the ability to truly be with yourself first! It is great to know that your partner has your back – it is even greater to know that “YOU have your back”. Traveling alone might allow you a new level of commitment to “taking good care of yourself”, to truly feel what you need and create strong borders – where you don’t want others to come to close. That are valuable abilities for all of our relationships. And there is nothing more self-empowering than finding yourself in a challenging situation, forced to courageous actions – and overcome your obstacles on your own. This is how Spiritual Warrior are born, so embrace it with all your being ;-)!!!

5. Which leads to realizing abilities and strength, that you always had inside you!
When a woman travels alone, she is reminded of all the small decisions we have to make, so our everyday life runs smoothly. Decisions that normally might be made by the collective of your family, the partner or your friendship circle, now lay wide open in front of you. It is on you and you alone, to make clear choices and than take responsibility for their outcome. That creates a deeper feeling of faith in ourselves and the path we choose to travel. We learn to be better problem solver, when we travel alone. And we might even surprise our-self with one or the other extraordinarily brave, capable and fearless move. When we learn to deeply enjoy our own company and prioritize our own opinion over that of others, an inner freedom settles in that makes space for even more brand new ideas and courageous next steps! The spiral of feeling alive has been set in motion ;-)!wo6.) You may discover that from now on, experience is more important to you than possessions:
Some people think this side effect should come with a warning-sign because indeed, traveling has an addictive character and can make us care much less for material goods. Once you tasted the inspiring air of meeting new people and experiencing things you
never thought of before, you might just have to do it again. These incredible moments are sure to leave an impression inside of you, that whispers to you about more unknown places and unfinished cycles. So the more you travel, spend money on classes you want to take and abilities you want to develop, the more you will prioritize experiences above material goods.
Once you made this powerful realization, there’s no telling how far you might go in developing inner freedom and fearlessness. A woman who realizes how capable she truly is, becomes an example for an independent free spirit in our world. So traveling the world alone can change your life forever, now the question is – do you want that??

I hope you do and one day we meet in the crazy little freak show that San Marcos is, or in any other part of the world!! But where ever you go, I hope traveling will make your life rich of magic and synchronicity and, that it leads you on the path to your true-self! Thank you for making the world a more beautiful place, by being truthful and authentic! 
Blessings and Love!
Edith

Twin flame energy report… the tide has turned… we are uniting…

woDear Friends,
I feel very excited these days, while I sit in silence and integrate the incoming energies. Int he last few month of my life, I could see in the challenges I passed, that a New Beginning has arrived in my relationships. Gently the first manifested expressions of my inner shifts and changes appear in manifested reality and make me laugh in bliss for all the blessings to come!! Who knows what wonderful magic will show up over the next 5 weeks. 
Blissfully energized I bless you and your New World relationships!!
Edith

Our dearest hearts beloveds,
We come forth now in this hour of your time to offer you some insights regarding the recent energetics that are currently subsuming Gaia and all her children, indeed energetically these are the most intense times you have ever lived in. The earth is on track now to Fully aligning with the Heart of galactic central, and upon her trajectory she is now stabilizing within the star system of Sirius. This shift in the geographical location of Gaia within the Galaxy is exponentially bringing forth the most intense rays and gamma light God particles that the world has ever known.

Indeed this crucial timeline of 28 September 2015 is calling forth all of the illumined blue Ray twin flames to be in their necessary grid points for this particular planetary Gateway. These orders have been dispensed from your higher self, and it is your and your beloveds unified higher self now, which is working around the clock to ensure your physical alignments.
This is the time for great surrender among the blue Ray twin flames as truly we affirm to you that your divine unions are rapidly manifesting into the physical plane as we speak. The path of the awakened master is to remain forever empty, that you may be able to receive God’s Grace. What does this mean?

It means to stabilize in present moment awareness, and to commit to prioritizing emphasizing the space from which all phenomena arise, as opposed to getting lost in emphasizing the temporary thoughts and emotions that display.
It means calling upon Archangel Michael to assist you in cutting away any unhealthy chords that may have come between you and your twin flame.
It means you are wholeheartedly and passionately getting on with your own higher mission whether you are physically with your twin flame or not.
Surrender is placing all of your faith in the divine and it is a deep knowing that your will and perspective are infinitely inferior to God’s will.
Surrender is naught without trust and trust is naught without surrender. When one truly surrenders one is carried by a tangible stream of energy which aligns you with the highest possible outcome every time. Surrender means to allow and accept this moment exactly as it is.

28We hope these words brings you comfort on this mountain path that you find yourself on. Very often the last test of the twin flame union is surrender and that is total surrender of your will to God’s Will.
We see so many of you now reaching this milestone in your union and this is also a sign that many of you are coming into a more upgraded template of self-love, which naturally affects one’s boundaries. We applaud your stepping into the lion and lioness that you truly are now and we can hear your deep roars of “ it’s not good enough”…….
From your 3-D perspective we very much understand where these cries are coming from, and this is all in accordance with divine will at this time, that you may ever continue your let go and surrender, so that which is meant for you can arrive.
Beloveds we love you all so much and you really are all doing so well. We wish you could see what iridescent beings we see before us, light workers of the highest caliber in humble service. You are so close now beloveds, the times are changing radically for many of you now. We will soon be hearing stories of many many twin flames literally knocking on each others doors. This energetic gateway is activating the infallible homing device that each soul carries in their DNA, that has been programmed to reunite them with their twin flame Divine counterpart in divine timing. Now is the time beloveds for many many of you and even though it may still seem like not a lot is happening on the 3-D level please know that behind-the-scenes vast changes and adjustments are taking place to ensure twin flames will be aligned on their grid points for the late September ascension gateway.

The world has changed now. The old paradigm is complete. These new energies are heralding the morn of the new era. The golden age of twin flame Union, sent forth to bring back unconditional love and sacred balance to the collective consciousness of mother Gaia. Beloveds, those who we speak to tonight, you are loved more than you could possibly ever comprehend, your prayers are so precious to us your guides and we are working diligently with all the elemental Masters of the third dimension to bring your heart desires into physical manifestation. We are so excited to be able to share this message with you beloveds, the tide has truly turned and miracle consciousness is the order of the day. All of these light showers are affecting physical matter and consciousness in profound ways. Expect to see more miraculous rainbows appearing spectacularly, cloud formations and light orbs being captured, an increase in synchronicity and being in divine flow.

i283445314541042487._szw1280h1280_Time between thought and manifestation is also exponentially increasing at these times so be mindful of this. Beloveds all of your ascension symptoms will begin to settle now as your consciousness has truly come through an extremely potent energetic gateway.  We are so honored to witness you all bringing evermore light into your physical systems. As you allow all these intense light rays to cleanse and purify you to the deepest depths of your core, you are fully aligning with the highest timeline destinies that you and your beloved twin flame co created before mother and father God prior to incarnation.

We are so excited about these coming months for many of you now, breathe deeply for that which you have prayed for has already energetically arrived and in this gateway is set to manifest on the physical plane with exquisite proficiency and grace. Dear ones please sleep tonight with a deep smile in your heart, feel the resonance of these words and allow them to remind you that truly you are not alone.
We are ever available to serve you and guide you. Please feel free to reach out to our beloved channel if you feel that you need some extra support during these deeply transformative times. trust deeply now beloveds, this is the holy key that unlocks all of the riches in God’s garden. You are the co creators and your greatest power lies in trust and surrender. Trust in the intelligence of your higher self and the incredible plan it has for you, and for your souls evolution. There are many guides and ancestors guiding and watching over Gaia now as she makes this monumental transition……. breathe deeply beloveds we your sacred team are all deeply and intimately connected to you…..feel the love of these words reminding you of this….
In loving service white wolf tribe

Love and Blessings! Edith

Top 7 Tips for How to Be Happy

why are happy people happy, finding happiness, find happiness, happiness tips, happiness quotesFinding Happiness went in search for the answer to the question “why are happy people happy?”

Here are our top tips for how to find true and lasting happiness in daily life:

1.) Let go of negativity.

  • Learn to forgive and forget.

  • See every challenge as an opportunity for further growth.

  • Express gratitude for what you have.

  • Be more optimistic about the future and your ability to accomplish life goals.

  • Open yourself up to success and embrace failures or mistakes that happen along the way.

  • Know that none of us are perfect, we are all here to entertain and be entertained.

  • Don’t worry about the little things. Take plenty of “worry vacations” where you train your mind not to worry for a certain lengths of time.

  • If you want to be more positive, surround yourself with positive energy and people. Nurture the positive relationships that you have, seeking out more of those relationships that help uplift you.

  • Accept and love yourself for the unique gifts and talents that you bring to life. Spend less time trying to please others and spend more time trying to please your higher self.

  • See the humor in life and in our experiences. Take life less seriously and learn to laugh at yourself.

2.) Serve and be kind to others.

  • Treat everyone with kindness. Not only does it help others to feel better, but you will notice that you too feel good after having a positive interaction with others.

  • Speak well of others. When you speak negatively of others you will attract more negativity to yourself, but when you speak positively of others, you will attract more positivity.

  • Truly listen to others. Be present and mindful to what others are really saying when they speak. Support them without bringing yourself into it.

  • Be careful with your words. Speak gentler, kinder, and wiser.

  • Respect others and their free will.

  • Put your trust in others and be trusted in return. Enjoy the sense of community and friendship that comes from this openness and faith in one another.

  • Work as part of a whole. See others as partners in your efforts. Unite your efforts with them to create a synergy more powerful than anything you could do alone.

  • Practice generosity and giving without expecting anything in return. Get involved with service opportunities and offer what you can to a greater cause.

  • Smile more– to family, to co-workers, to neighbors, to strangers– and watch it not only change how you feel but also how they feel too.

descarga3.) Live in the present.

  • Don’t replay negative events or worry about the future.

  • Accept and celebrate impermanence. Be grateful for your life, for each moment of every day. Observe the constant and natural flow of change that surrounds us, and your small yet important part in the natural, divine flow of life.

  • Observe yourself in the moment. Work on your reactions to outer circumstances and learn how to approach life harmoniously.

4.) Choose a healthy lifestyle.

  • Keep a daily routine. Wake up at the same time every morning, preferably early. Setting yourself to a natural biorhythm will make it easier to wake up and feel energized.

  • Get enough sleep. Proper sleep is linked to positive personality characteristics like optimism, improved self-esteem, and even problem solving.

  • Expose yourself to cold temperatures (especially first thing in the morning with perhaps a cold shower). It increases your circulation, helps minimize inflammation in the body, enhances weight loss, and energizes and invigorates you to start your day.

  • Turn off the TV. For every hour of TV you watch, you reduce 22 minutes of your life expectancy.

  • Eat properly. What you eat has a direct effect on your mood and energy levels. Eat plenty of organic, locally grown fruits and vegetables, nuts, whole grains, and dairy products that are both vitamin and mineral infused. Don’t overeat and try to practice healthy self-control.

  • Exercise daily to the point of sweating. It not only helps to purify the body, but also releases endorphins which help to prevent stress, relieve depression, and positively improve your mood.

  • Laugh more. Laughter is the best medicine. Like exercise, it releases endorphins that battle the negative effects of stress and promote a sense of well-being and joy.

  • Practice deep breathing and yoga. The body and mind are connected. Emotions affect the physical systems in the body, and the state of the body also affects the mind. By relaxing and releasing tension through the breath or yoga practice you feel more calm and centered throughout the day.

5.) Take care of your spirit.

  • Strive to always learn new things. Constantly expand your awareness and discover new ways of expressing your divine gifts.

  • Get creative. This will not only challenge you to learn new things, but will also help to keep your mind in a positive place. Practice living in the present moment and being a channel for the divine flow of creativity.

  • Practice meditation. Research has proven that even as little as 10 minutes of meditation a day can lead to physical changes in the brain that improve concentration and focus, calm the nervous system, and help you to become more kind and compassionate, and even more humorous. Then bring the joy and peace you receive from meditation into your daily life and activity.

  • Be honest. Telling the truth keeps you free inside, builds trust in relationships, and improves your will power and the ability to attract success.

  • Surrender to the Universe Divine and allow it to take care of the littlest things in life to the greatest and most important.

descarga (1)6. ) Be inwardly free.

  • Live minimally and simply. Often extravagant living brings more stress not more satisfaction.

  • De-clutter your home to de-clutter your mind. Clutter is an often unrecognized source of stress that promotes feelings of anxiety, frustration, distraction, and guilt. Feel good in your own home. Make it your sanctuary by keeping it clean, organized, and uplifting.

  • Go without certain things you think you need. Travel to new places where not everything is as easily accessible or readily available, and learn to appreciate what you have by expanding your world.

  • Take some time away from life’s complicated outer involvements to get to know your family, your neighbors, and your loved ones better; and to get to know yourself.

7.)  Reconnect with Nature.

  • Take some time every week to recharge your body battery. On the weekend, escape to nature or a place where you can feel peace in time for a fresh start to the work week.

  • Get outside whenever possible to breathe in the fresh air and feel the sunshine. Both of which studies have shown to have a positive effect on our health and our mood.

  • Take some time to be silent. Be silent and calm every night for at least 10 minutes (longer if possible) and again in the morning before rising. This will produce an unbreakable habit of inner happiness to help you meet challenges in life.

  • Observe the natural beauty that surrounds you and feel a sense of connection. Appreciate the details and miracles that can be found in nature.

Taking the Next Steps to Finding Happiness:

Ask yourself what makes you happy, and find ways to restructure your life so that you are able to do more of those things.

Then ask why you struggle to do the things that you know will make you happy. Why are you not yet happy? Why haven’t you taken the next steps to find your happiness? Why are you here? And what do you need to do to feel a sense of accomplishment in this life?

Visualize yourself happy, doing the things that will bring you inner and outer success in life and write down the things you need to do to create a Happiness Bucket List. Start with the little things you know you can do each day that will bring you joy. Then move on to accomplish greater and greater things on your happiness bucket list.

Listen to Your Intuition, Whispers From the Soul

open-arms-grass“I believe in intuitions and inspirations…I sometimes feel that I am right. I do not know that I am.” – Albert Einstein
Have you experienced a moment when you felt something wasn’t right or was absolutely perfect? Like walking into a house for rent or sale, and you instantly know it’s the right place to live. Or you take up a job or a task and know whether it would work out or not. Its that inner voice telling you the solution to problems and decision-making without the use of rational processes and logical reasoning.
It’s your intuition that just knows. Researchers describe intuition as “rapid intellect” or “condensed reasoning” which is present in each and every living being. The word “intuition” comes from the Latin word intueri, which means knowledge from within. Intuition is the connecting path between the subconscious and conscious mind. Your subconscious mind, applicably, converses with the conscious mind all the time.
intuitionThis phenomenon of the inner world is popularly known as “gut feeling”. Having a gut feeling is as natural as feeling sad, happy or angry. “Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” ― C.G. Jung In spite of the knowledge of the power of intuition, we are swayed into believing and developing a logical rationale. In the past, science has always out ruled the power of intuition over logic and its only now that several scientific research has proved that intuition is not a magical occurrence but a well-coordinated process between the brain and the heart.
Listen to your Intuition When you feel contraction of energy inside your system at the thought of something, it’s your intuition giving you a warning signal. Similarly, when you experience an expansion of energy, it’s your intuition bouncing positive feelings. However, in this chaotic world of information, it has become quite difficult to listen and tap into the inner signals.
understanding-intuitionAs one cannot get away with blaming the world alone, one can also be responsible for creating communication blockages within one self. If you are clouded with ego, pre-conceived theories and excessive random stream of thoughts, you might have trouble listening to your inner wisdom. But every problem is a blessing in disguise as it motivates you to seek a new path. Here the idea is to understand how to maintain a smooth communication channel with your intuition. A clearer understanding of the following can help you carve out a way to connect to your inner voice.
1) De-clutter your mind and its garbage If you can think for yourself, you need not take anyone’s unsolicited advice seriously. Rather introspect and use your gut feelings to reach to a conclusion. Harbingers of self-destruction for e.g. ego, jealously, revenge hazes your ability to listen to your inner voice. The aim is to get rid of the negativity to re-boot your self.
2) Meditate There are several forms of meditation that helps one in achieving a balanced and quiet mind. Indulging in few minutes of meditation everyday will help you in getting in touch with your intuitive mind.
3) Spend time in Nature Nature heals. Go for a walk in the woods. Feel the grass and acknowledge the beauty around you. Let the breeze gush through your soul. Breathe and let the soul dance. Discover the joy of being with the self.
4) Listen to sharpen your intuition Listen to experiences of near and dear ones compassionately. You never know, they secretly might know your troubles and help you out in getting away with them. They can help you in knowing your heart.
images (2)5) Try Affirmations Affirmations can help you to purify your thoughts and help you develop a more positive perception of yourself. Writing simple affirmations daily like “I am listening to my intuition,” “I am in touch with my source of energy,” will instill positive feelings and thoughts in your subconscious mind.
6) Be Compassionate towards your body No one can get away with abusing his or her body. Don’t over exert yourself and most importantly, take care of it.
7) Let go Learn to let go and surrender to the need to control. Nothing is worth clinging to, as that will eventually disconnect you from your inner voice.
8) Practice Learn to listen to your intuition and inculcate the habit of following the message it has to give. The more you listen, the stronger it gets. Start off by asking yourself simple questions, like try to guess who is calling you before answering the phone, whether it will rain or not and so on. The more you practice, the better you get at recognizing the whispers from your soul.
9) Emphasis the positive Positive people have been reported to have stronger sense of intuition. So stay positive and smile!
10) Understand Selflessness A person who feels abundance is rewarded in abundance by the universe. Never give a second thought to an act of kindness. Selflessness makes one fall in love with the self. Once you discover the joy of this beauty, the body is filled with positive energy.

21 Tips to Release Self-Neglect and Love Yourself in Action

“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh

The most important decision of your life, the one that will affect every other decision you make, is the commitment to love and accept yourself. It directly affects the quality of your relationships, your work, your free time, your faith, and your future. Why then is this so difficult to do?

Your Family of Origin

I grew up with nine siblings. I had two older brothers, three older sisters, three younger sisters, and a younger brother.
I never fit in. My sisters were tall and thin with beautiful, long, lush hair. By eleven years old, I was short and very curvy. My hair was fine, thin, and wild.
For the most part, my siblings did as they were told. I was outspoken, out-of-control and rebellious.
I wore my sister’s hand-me-down school uniforms. I rolled up the hems on the skirts and popped buttons on the blouses. My look was unkempt.
I was teased and bullied at home and at school. Yet I didn’t go quietly into the night. I fought for my place in my family. To protect myself, I developed a good punch and grew a sharp tongue.

 

I was 27 years old and married with four children when I became desperate enough to seek out my first therapist. I felt alone, stuck, and unlovable. I was determined to change.

After six months of working through my childhood issues, old thoughts, beliefs, and events, I felt alive again. It was like stripping off several layers of paint from an antique piece of furniture. I found myself restored to my original beauty.

imagesCultural Influences

We’re taught by society that our worth is found in the idols of our culture—technology, status, youth, sex, power, money, attractiveness, and romantic relationships.

If you base your self worth on the external world, you’ll never be capable of self-love.

Your inner critic will flood you with thoughts of, “I’m not enough, I don’t have enough, and I don’t do enough.”
Feelings of lack are never-ending. Every time a goal is reached or you possess the next big thing, your ego will move the line.

Shift Your Self-Perception

Feeling worthy requires you to see yourself with fresh eyes of self-awareness, , and love. Acceptance and love must come from within.
You don’t have to be different to be worthy. Your worth is in your true nature, a core of love and inner goodness. You are a beautiful light. You are love. We can bury our magnificence, but it’s impossible to destroy.
Loving ourselves isn’t a one time event. It’s an endless, moment by moment ongoing process.

It begins with you, enfolding yourself in your own affection and appreciation.
Read on for steps to discover your worth and enfold yourself in affection and appreciation.

1. Begin your day with love (not technology). Remind yourself of your worthiness before getting out of bed. Breathe in love and breathe out love. Enfold yourself in light. Saturate your being in love.

2. Take time to meditate and journal. Spend time focusing inward daily. Begin with 5 minutes of meditation and 5 minutes of journaling each morning. Gradually increase this time.

3. Talk yourself happy. Use affirmations to train your mind to become more positive. Put a wrist band on your right wrist. When you’re participating in self-abuse of any form, move the band to your left wrist.

4. Get emotionally honest. Let of go of numbing your feelings.Shopping, eating, and drinking are examples of avoiding discomfort, sadness, and pain. Mindfully breathe your way through your feelings and emotions.

5. Expand your interests. Try something new. Learn a language. Go places you’ve never been. Do things you haven’t done before. You have a right to an awesome life.

6. Enjoy life enhancing activities. Find exercise you like. Discover healthy foods that are good for you. Turn off technology for a day and spend time doing things that make you feel alive.

7. Become willing to surrender. Breathe, relax, and let go. You can never see the whole picture. You don’t know what anything is for. Stop fighting against yourself by thinking and desiring people and events in your life should be different. Your plan may be different from your soul’s intentions.

Buddha18. Work on personal and spiritual development. Be willing to surrender and grow. Life is a journey. We are here to learn and love on a deeper level. Take penguin steps and life becomes difficult. One step at a time is enough to proceed forward.

9. Own your potential. Love yourself enough to believe in the limitless opportunities available to you. Take action and create a beautiful life for yourself.

10. Be patient with yourself. Let go of urgency and fear. Relax and transform striving into thriving. Trust in yourself, do good work, and the Universe will reward you.

11. Live in appreciation. Train your mind to be grateful. Appreciate your talents, beauty, and brilliance. Love your imperfectly perfect self.

12. Be guided by your intuition. All answers come from within. Look for signs and pay attention to your gut feelings. You’ll hear two inner voices when you need to make a decision. The quiet voice is your higher self; the loud voice is your ego. Always go with the quieter voice.

13. Do what honors and respects you. Don’t participate in activities that bring you down. Don’t allow toxic people in your life. Love everyone, but be discerning on who you allow into your life.

14. Accept uncertainty. Suffering comes from living in the pain of the past or the fear of the future. Put your attention on the present moment and be at peace.

15. Forgive yourself. Learn from your mistakes and go forward. Use this affirmation, “I forgive myself for judging myself for __________ (fill in the blank i.e.: for getting sick, for acting out, for not doing your best.)

16. Discover the power of fun. Self-love requires time to relax, play, and create face-to-face interaction with others. Our fast-paced world creates a goal setting, competitive craziness that doesn’t leave room for play. Dr. Stuart Brow says, “The opposite of play isn’t work, it is depression.”

17. Be real. Speak up and speak out. Allow yourself to be seen, known, and heard. Get comfortable with intimacy (in-to-me-see).

18. Focus on the positive. Go to your heart and dwell on and praise yourself for what you get right in all areas.

19. Become aware of self neglect and rejection. Become conscious of your choices. Ask yourself several times throughout the day, “Does this choice honor me?”

20. Imagine what your life would look like if you believed in your worth. Dedicate your life to loving you. Make it your main event.

21. Seek professional help. Self-rejection and neglect is painful. You deserve to be happy. You have a right to be accepted and loved. If necessary, seek help from a support group, counselor, or coach. It’s the best investment you can make.

Because we are all interconnected, when I love me, I also love you. Together through our love, we can heal ourselves, each other, and the world. Love is our purpose, our true calling. It begins with and within each of us.
