Stretch Those…Eyes!

Stretch Those…Eyes!

Nothing new – that you need to move. Get up, get out and move. Every day, throughout the day. Nothing new. But, what about those eyes? These days a large percentage of your day is in front of a screen. Your eyes for the most part, are staring straight ahead. Not good. Far too much in one direction. This weakens your eyes, creates an imbalance in your system and disconnects you to the all of you. It numbs you and deteriorates your abilities to think and create for yourself. You become hypnotized by the constant barrage of information and entertainment.  Becoming so out of synch with yourself, many can even experience aggression, lack of ability to reason, your brain becomes cloudy, coordination suffers. In short you are a mess. These screens provide us with unlimited sources, that can ignite us and brings us knowledge. But too much breaks us down. Broken down, your ability to discern between what is accurate and what is fabricated, spiralling you into a state of confusion. We need our eyes and we need our brains. We need to see and think clearly and not simply follow along with whatever is presented to us.  Now our children are online for hours at a time. Yes, there are teachers who remind their students to drink water, breathe and offer them movement breaks. None the less, it’s too much, for too long. Looking in one direction repeatedly, can create tunnel vision where you lock on one perspective and find it difficult to entertain another point of view. So when you stand up and move, remember your eyes...
The Energy of 2021

The Energy of 2021

The energy of 2021 is based on the science of Numerology. First, the math; The Universal Energy of 2021 is a “5” The equation is 2+0+2+1 = 5 2020 was the Universal Energy of “4” Let’s do a recap of what a Universal Year 4 was all about. The “4” is a building energy and therefore it is very much about the process. Starting at the beginning and moving through each step till completion.  A strong foundation is needed to weather all that Life presents. Life at times hits hard and cracks will appear. When they do, it’s important that they are attended to and repaired well, not just glossed over, pushed aside or hidden. We all know attempting to turn a blind eye, thinking no one will notice, that it will all just be okay is foolish. The opportunity to ignore is brief. The crack grows and before you know it, becomes an abyss. This past year, I was told by many that they had stopped watching the news. But Life is pretty adamant, “You can run, but you can’t hide.”  The cracks of our world were in our face and they were not hairline, they were large enough for all of us to fit into, because they affected all of us. Covid 19 escalated the rumble where what was cracked and on the verge to breaking, to break. Like the cracked heirloom vase that sits on a shelf, never to adorn flowers, as it will no longer hold water. You can ignore and no one has to admit to how the crack got there. But when it...
Giving to Ourselves, We Are Better to Each Other

Giving to Ourselves, We Are Better to Each Other

Many times, I have asked; “Do you compliment yourself?”  When you look good, do something well, come up with something brilliant, extend generosity to another – do you recognize you? Do you give recognition to yourself? The response I receive is usually; silence. As if it’s a trick question. If you say yes, will you appear conceited? If you say no, does it imply you see yourself as lacking, possibly even harsher – as less than, because you can’t think of anything worth complimenting? We have these expectations that are based on the beliefs and attitudes of past generations. Which were never true, but served a purpose. It kept many people in their place. The place of being less, so more would follow and less would lead. It was considered self-serving, self-indulgent to acknowledge yourself, pat yourself on the back, give approval to yourself. You were to receive accolades only from others, from the outside.  However, energy doesn’t work this way. It works from within to without. Like energy attracts like energy. This is not new information. But few hear it and even fewer act on it. It’s not about feeling better than.  It’s about knowing you are worthy and deserving. And you will only truly believe this when you prove it by acknowledging yourself. When you give to you, you begin to see more of the good in others.  Giving to yourself, develops confidence in yourself and this grows into the strength to give the same. You notice more. You feel kindness and generosity to extend compliments and in turn recognize those around you. As you give to...
Me, Myself and…Well You Know The Rest

Me, Myself and…Well You Know The Rest

There was a time in my life where I experienced what it was to be with someone and yet very much alone. Neglected and abandoned, with the repeated message that I was not deserving of being loved. I crumbled. But, life and likewise, myself, had other plans. I rallied. I closed the door to this reality. When you start again, alone at first, I pushed myself to do things on my own. And low and behold I grew to enjoy my own company. I found out that I was not this terrible person, I had been told I was. I liked me and I  could actually have a good time with just me.  I looked in the mirror and I remembered; I have dimples. Dimples that appear when one smiles are irresistible. And even, if you don’t, there is surely something you have that is beautiful.  Now, fast forward to – 2020. Yes, I still like me. I remain to enjoy my company, I find how I think intriguing, there are moments where I applaud my brilliance. I find myself amusing and therefore entertaining. I even enjoy my cooking.  Now, there are times I’m not impressed and I tell myself that this was not one of my finer moments and thank God tomorrow is another day and I can start fresh. BUT. From March till December of this year, I have had the pleasure of my company, A LOT! Let’s face it being together with anyone 24/7 can be just that — too much.  There is no escaping me. Every day it’s Me, Myself and… Well you know the...
Sweep Away The Cobwebs

Sweep Away The Cobwebs

I am blessed with a front door that faces the east and aligns to the sunrise. When the light streams in, it reminds me to greet the day and allow the light.  How will I enjoy my light today? Where will I share my light today? Surely there is some way I can contribute. Lighten someone’s day, lighten my heart. Live true, live my light. Inspire someone to venture in the direction of their light. It doesn’t just happen. You’ve got to maintain that light of yours. Cobwebs collect when you’ve left it in the shadows, forgetting that it’s for you to take care of and value, that it’s not someone else’s responsibility. While sorting through some papers the other day, this piece fell out, reminding me to ask myself where was I at. Fearful of what others might think, of dreaming big. Of simply being me? Or am I finally at a point where I enjoy who I am and more than enjoy the skin I’m in, do I push myself to keep going forward, learning more about me. I’m not finished yet, I believe there is so much more to me that is waiting to be discovered.    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.  We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually who are you not to be?  You are a child of God. Your ‘playing small’ doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so ...
