“Abundance is the ability to have what you need when you need it. Period.” – Bashar

I’ve always been fascinated with the ideas and definitions of abundance and why some people tend to have so much abundance in one area of their lives, but so much lack in other areas. For example, I know a man who makes millions of dollars, has several boats, travels first class and has all the luxuries money can buy. But he has no friends or deep heart connections to make life meaningful. On the other hand,  I also know people who are overly abundant in love and family, but stress out over paying the bills each month. I also know people who have an abundance of money, friends, family but are not abundant in health.

I often ask myself why is it so hard for humanity to allow abundance in ALL areas of our lives; to have love, life, vitality, health, peace, money, family, friends, creativity, etc. Through my own personal journey, I’ve come to understand that there are two reasons that block abundance in any area of life:

            1) Belief Systems and

            2) A Proper Balance of Give and Take

Lets talk about Belief Systems first. I realize that many times we don’t feel that we deserve to have abundance in a specific area of our lives or are afraid that if we open our hearts to that kind of abundance, something bad will happen. For example, for a long time I believed that if I had a lot of money (win the lottery lets say) that would mean that I would have a huge burden of responsibility to carry-that did not seem fun. I believed that I would have to do something good and pure and change the world with that money. I believed that I didn’t deserve that kind of responsibility and worse, was afraid that I couldn’t live up to that expectation I made for myself (or what I assumed others, God, would want from me). For a long time, this belief system held me back from making too much money. I just needed enough to get by and behold, that’s what manifested in my life.

Once I realized this belief system, I decided to consciously change it. I stopped negative thinking and took back control of my mind’s rantings. My financial situation changed a little, but not much. I was frustrated with the ‘Secret’ teachings that if you think something enough, it will manifest. In the end, I realized that thinking was only one half of the equation. Belief isn’t everything- Action must take place to catalyze the belief into manifestion.

And that’s when I learned about the idea of Karma- the balance of give and take. Our society is very much rooted in the ‘take’ mentality. Its all about consumption. Gimme Gimme Gimme. When I started to GIVE of myself, share myself with others, just because it felt good, with no expectation of anything in return,  EVERYTHING changed.

BELIEF SYSTEM + SHARING/GIVING = ABUNDANCE

And this truth came to the forefront of my mind:

The capacity to receive is directly correlated to the capacity to give. So the more you give, the more you are able to receive.

So now, I make a point in my life to GIVE as much as I can; not just for the benefit of others, but for my own benefit as well. Giving can be anything from a generous smile to volunteering and anything in between. Each of us is different and we all have so many beautiful talents to share with others. Let go of all fears, all need to be protective and territorial and all unwillingness to be open. BE OPEN SO YOU CAN BE ABUNDANT!!!

Today’s Challenge:

Go out and SHARE your essence with someone, anyone, and RECEIVE the abundance that results!

We see him about once a week, which often gives me a quick scare since I have two little Chihuahuas that would be a perfect appetizer for this lone coyote. However, something magical happens when he appears. Its as if time, movement, sound all stop and all fears that sweep through my body are silenced.

He’s not just any coyote. He’s a messenger for me and his first message is that he’s not going to harm by little Chihoots. Lol. Sometimes the Chihuahuas play and don’t even see him. He just stares at them and then looks up at me as if to say, “Don’t worry- they are safe. You are safe.”

One of my on-going ‘issues’ or belief systems is that I’m not safe. I often have surges of fears and anxieties about silly things like answering the door if Murray isn’t home or driving through unknown neighborhoods. I wasn’t always this spooky, but my time in Africa left a sort of post-traumatic stress imprint on my consciousness. My physical body still thinks I’m over there and just can’t accept that its finally safe to let go and relax. Its something I have to constantly work on.

So its such a blessing to have this weekly visitor come and remind me that even in what seems like danger, I’m always safe because I am eternal. I can never die, I can never be harmed, I am all that is. And if we can all remember this truth about ourselves, I think all of our fears including money fears, love fears, time fears, etc will dissolve into the ether of truth.

Daily affirmation:

“I am safe, eternal, loved and worthy. I enjoy life to the fullest and experience everything from a place of love, compassion and excitement.”

We’ve had the honor to be in the presence of at least 10 different hummingbirds living in a tree outside our home. They visit all day every day, drinking out of our feeder, playing fighter pilot stunts with each other and giving us the pleasure of touching a few of them. Its truly a miracle!

I looked up what the hummingbird totem is and here is what it says:

The hummingbird spirit animal symbolizes the enjoyment of life and lightness of being. Those who have the hummingbird as a totem are invited to enjoy the sweetness of life, lift up negativity wherever it creeps in and express love more fully in their daily endeavors. This fascinating bird is capable of the most amazing feats despite its small size, such as traveling great distances or being able to fly backwards. By affinity with the hummingbird, those who have this bird as totem may be encouraged to develop their adaptability and resiliency while keeping a playful and optimistic outlook.

I am currently at a time in my life where the storm has settled, the water has calmed and the wind has slowed down. Its truly a place of rest, restoration, new beginnings and joy. I feel so fortunate that these hummingbirds are constantly in my face (literally) making sure I don’t forget to enjoy the sweetness life has to offer right now.

For those that know me personally, my life has been a very severe series of ups and downs, more than most. I’ve experienced the lowest of the lows from trauma, abuse, suicide, tragedy, abandonment and shame to the highest of the highs from international recognition, more abundance than I know what to do with, real love, and true self expression. I have experienced the totality of polarity- life has been a drug trip, which is probably why drugs never interested me! But all kidding aside, I’m finally finding the perfect balance between life’s mania and depression and it feels good.  The past three years of healing are finally paying off!

I used to be afraid of calm, stillness and the void. Now I cherish it. Its home. And the beautiful hummingbirds require that I stay in the ‘Now’ and remember where I belong.

If you need help finding your own inner stillness, or are resisting it out of fear, control, guilt, shame or any other reason, I’d love to help you find it! If I can do it, you can too! Check out my meditation series and workshops (both online and in person)- I can also help you personally find your way with one-on-one sessions.

Blessings, Love and Excitement!

Lately I’ve been feeling disconnected from my inner navigation, creativity and passion. I reached out to a good friend Dani who does some amazing work with Soul Memory, Aura Soma, The Ways of Light and so much more. As always, the session was amazing and such a beautiful affirmation of what I am here to do!

What was revealed to me in the session is that the only way to heal anything is through the heart. It is the energy of the heart space that transmutes negative energy, beliefs, entities or whatever you want to call them. It is the heart space that connects us to our true selves and to each other collectively as beings on Earth. It is our H-E-A-R-T that connects us to E-A-R-T-H, which coincidentally has the same letters.

I’ve always thought and I’ve always practiced my connection to the Earth through grounding- a first chakra kind of thing. Yes that grounds out your energy, which is very useful, but it doesn’t truly connect you to Mother, to the womb, to the place of safety, power and love. Its the heart that makes that connection.

This made a lot of sense to me because I have recently been fascinated with the Vagus Nerve, otherwise known as the Compassion Nerve. It sits at the bottom of the heart and is activated when we experience or witness compassion. Its what gives us the warm and fuzzies, the lump in our throats and the tears to our eyes when we are moved. The Vagus nerve is activated when we experience connection to others and to our higher selves.

The heart is the center of everything ‘connection’. We’ve been told for years that love is the answer, but you can’t will love through your mind or even through your emotions. Love is an energy that lives in the heart. When you allow yourself to be vulnerable enough to experience your own heart, you will find everything you need- all love, all information, all answers, all peace, all that is.

I have created a few meditations to help get you to this place. Please contact me if you would like to download them!
