Finding What You Seek

There are days when you may wonder why the Universe has placed certain people around you. They are not who you would normally choose to walk with you on your journey. In fact, it seems as if the Universe went out of it’s way to find people that are your complete opposite. Whether it’s that one person who is the bane of your existence or a few that seem to challenge your every word. If there is a lesson in this, you just aren’t connecting the dots. Being self centered to a degree, there may be a little feeling sorry for yourself right now. But what if it’s not all about you. Could it be that these people are in your life at this moment because of what you can share with them? Although you may deny it, you too are a guiding light for many. No one is perfect, so we are here to teach each other what the other lacks. So instead of feeling out of sorts, take up the challenge that the Universe has given you. As others learn from what you offer, you will learn from those that have what your own spirit seeks. 
You may find what you seek during quiet reflection…

Believe In Your Dreams

What are you asking for? We hear your whispers but even then you don’t sound very sure. We understand that it is frustrating because you been trying so hard to say the right things, but in the end it’s not quite what you mean. Have you ever wondered why it’s so difficult asking for what you want? You’ve been working hard to reach your goals, but sometimes what you’re asking for doesn’t have anything to do with that. Sometimes what you truly want is something you’ve never thought you could attain. And yet you still question yourself whether what you want is worth asking for? It’s as if you have judged yourself and found yourself to be lacking. Don’t you know, whether you say the words out loud or not, we still hear you. For it’s not the words that are important, it’s the spirit in which you share your dreams with us that resonates so strongly. Know that we support your journey and what your heart desires. Have faith that all will come to you as you have dreamed it will be.
Sometimes you don’t always have to question, just appreciate what you see…

Release What Doesn't Belong

It’s time to roll up your sleeves and start cleaning. You’ve had the urge to do something new, but you’ve hesitated for a while. But the feeling that something is coming around the corner is stronger and stronger. As things begin to appear in your life, you will need to release what you’ve held on so tightly to. So think about all the things going on in your life, what have you outgrown or doesn’t fit as well as it did in the past. You’ve tended to collect things but have forgotten why you’ve kept it in the first place. Maybe you can pass it on to someone else who needs it in their life. There is a time for everything and now is the time for major cleaning. Know that as you slowly let go, other things that now belong in your life will quickly come to you. What an exciting time for you!
It’s time for planting…

Finding Your Angels During Tough Times

Although it seems that you are the only one that goes through tough times, know that we all have had similar experiences. It’s difficult to imagine that anyone but ourselves can feel the same pain and frustration as you have. No matter how much you want to share what you are going through, it’s hard to explain. There is a feeling of hopelessness and being overwhelmed. It’s like being caught in a crazy wave and being tossed around so that you don’t know which way is up or down. How can you swim to the surface when you don’t even know where it is? Even those close to you may not even realize how deeply you are affected with what is going on. But it’s with the help of these special angels that you are able to eventually surface and catch your breath. It doesn’t matter if they understand what you are going through.What is important is that they are there to support you when you need it most. Remember tough times will come and go, so send a note of thanks to those who stand by you no matter what, for they are an important part of the foundation which you stand upon.

Structured Creativity

Sometimes it’s frustrating when you’re not able to get in touch with your creativity side. You’re at a loss at how to find the flow of ideas that once came so easily. You’ve tried to empty your mind, but all your worries of the day have a way of slowly creeping back in. Finding a place to find your inspiration is more difficult than you thought. In fact, who would think that artists being free spirited people would have such a hard time discovering their creative muse. But you’d be surprised that although they present themselves to be undisciplined about their work, they may be one of the most organized people. Being creative takes discipline, patience, and a commitment to your passion. So by following the path which calls to you and is structured in a way that only you would understand, you will find the creative inspiration you seek.

Doing What Is Right

What if there was no Universal Plan overseeing what you are doing in life? No guiding spirits to help you on your journey. No messages that whisper words of wisdom in your ears. What if from this moment you are on your own? You would be responsible for your own actions. Maneuvering through life’s complicated mazes, not knowing if you are headed in the right direction. Questioning whether the choices you are making are the right ones to get you to where you want to be. For some of us that’s what we are feeling right now. When we begin to believe that we are standing alone and there is nothing to help us on our journey, then we truly are alone. No matter how you are feeling, whether  you believe that there is a Universal plan, spirit guides or loved ones who have passed on that are watching over you or not you still have control of doing what is right not only for yourself but others. It’s great to have the support of others, but the responsibility of your actions lay on you alone.
Where would we be if we trusted our instincts…

Keeping Your Promises

Promises made but so easily forgotten. At that moment, you had every intention of keeping them. In fact, it was part of deal you made with the Universe. If you do this, I promise that I will… Whatever you promised you meant it with all your heart. It was made with the best intentions. Although you may have forgotten what you committed yourself to do, the Universe remembers. But it’s like reflecting on the actions of a child. Children in the midst of chaos and trouble make all kinds of promises to their parents. They will clean their rooms every day till the day they die. They will eat all their vegetables, even if they throw up. They will try really hard in school, even if their teacher doesn’t like them. Whatever they promise, their parents look upon them with love and patience. That’s how the Universe looks upon us. It understands that when you make your promises, you truly mean it with your whole being and that’s what counts. No one is holding you to your promises, so don’t be so hard on yourself. The Universe will continue to help and support you on your journey, no matter what promises you make. Just be kind and compassionate to yourself and to others and you will be on your way tp keeping your promises.

Be True To Yourself

We are to remind you to stay true to what you believe. Do not be swayed into thinking that what others tell you is the truth. It may be what guides them in their lives, but you are all unique and what is good for them may not be for you. You spend your time comparing yourself to others and come up short every time. It’s not that you are less than anyone else but you are not measuring yourself with the correct ruler. If this is how you measure your worth than you with never see your true value. We are here to tell you that you are strong and can withstand all that seems to overwhelm you. Know that we stand with you. You think that you need to lean on others for support but it’s time to find the courage that is within you.There will be times of self doubt, but that is only natural. Questioning your abilities is part of getting to know the person you are becoming. So stand strong and be confident as you journey on the path that was meant for only you.
We are closer than you think…

Let Me Wander About

Let me wander around for just a bit. It’s okay if I get lose my direction for I may find what I need along the way. I’ve been on a planned course for all my life that getting lost seems just what I need. Sometimes knowing where I am every step of the way doesn’t always work. I feel like I’m missing something but I’m not sure what it is. Maybe not having a plan is just the plan that will work. It seems the more sure I am of where I am going, the more I lose some of my creativity along the way. Finding new paths to walk may inspire me to see things from a different perspective. It’s time to put aside the plans I have and begin exploring what is waiting for me to discover.
I really should learn how to swim…

Are You The Friend That I Seek?

Although you consider yourself to be independent, there are moments in life when you could use a friend. Someone you trust who has been there for you. Someone who lends their support without question. It’s not that you don’t have the inner strength to stand on your own, but there are times when you need someone to lean on. You’ve been working hard to keep yourself afloat, but lately you seem to be drifting. You know yourself well enough to know that it’s time to ask for help from these special people who will rally behind you. Being a friend is so much more than sharing laughter and good times, it’s being there for each other especially weathering through the most of trying times. Think about it, Would you be that person someone would call if they are troubled and in pain? Would you be the friend that they seek?

Owning Your Destiny

Do you ever wonder if you are where you are meant to be? Sometimes life gets so difficult that you question if you are fighting a losing battle. But you’ve had the same dream recently where you are doing what makes you happy and you are at peace. In fact although it’s only a dream, you awake feeling that there will be a time when everything will come together for you and you will be where you belong. But when the universe works in your favor and you are placed in that very place that you dreamed about, you are filled with self doubt. All your fears come rushing back. You freeze. Dreaming about who you are meant to be is one thing but having the opportunity to actually change your life around is scarier than you thought. It’s time to own your destiny and stop hiding behind your dreams. This is a year to realize all that you’ve been wishing for.

Celebrating Your Independence

Today is a day when we gather with friends and family to celebrate our country’s independence. But what does this holiday mean to you? Besides being excited about the firework display and going to a barbecue, what are you celebrating? What does it mean to be independent, not only as a country but as an individual? When you think about how many things you take for granted, you’d be amazed at how much freedom you actually have and the opportunities that are available to you. So when you go about your daily life, grumbling that you don’t have a choice to do what you want to do, know that you have choices, but may not be ready to make them. Like our country, your independence doesn’t come easily. It may be difficult to attain and harder yet to maintain, but with persistence and commitment on your part you can achieve all that you seek. So celebrate our country’s independence day as well as your freedom to be whoever you are meant to be.

Take Control Of Your Life

Have you ever been upset with someone that it left you exhausted? You may have even forgotten the initial reason that started this rampage. Whether you share what you feel with someone else or keep it within, your days seem to be ruined. There is no room for creative thought or helping others because it takes everything you have to generate what you are feeling. But enough is enough, it’s time to move on. Whatever it was that got you upset has passed and now it’s up to you to decide what you are going to do. Take back the control you’ve given this other person and begin living your life again. Every day that you wake up, it’s up to you to decide what kind of day you’ll have. It’s time to be happy again and enjoy the life you’ve been blessed with.

In One Of Your Moods

Instead of getting upset with everyone around you because you’re feeling irritable, rail it in. Sure there are those who are doing things that irritate you, but is it them or is it you?. It’s easier to find fault in everyone then it is to acknowledge that at this moment everything bothers you. So let’s give everyone a break and back it up for a while. It’s okay to be grouchy and mad at the world but not when it’s hurting everyone around you. Do what you need to do to cool off. Take a break from your daily schedule and do something special for yourself. And when you’ve calmed down, apologize to those you’ve offended and let them know how much you appreciate them. You don’t have to be perfect all the time, but be careful that you don’t hurt anyone along the way.

The Power Of Being Alone

When you‘ve never done things by yourself, it’s pretty scary being on your own. You’ve never had to stand alone because someone has always been by your side.But it’s been a long time coming that you find the strength within you that has laid dormant. There has never been a reason for you to push yourself to be the best that you can be. Depending on others, you lacked the effort to seek your potential. But now  it’s time to find what it’ll take for you to survive and be the person you’ve always were meant to be. Know that there is power by being alone.
