Nov 2018 Newsletter: BEing is a Choice

Happy Thanksgiving

This is my favorite time of the year. The trees are changing into beautiful colors and the temperature is still nice – there is so much to be Thankful and Grateful for. Although we had Thanksgiving in Canada already last month, we still celebrate Thanksgiving with our American friends south of the border.  I am very Grateful for all the Blessings that surround me. Thank you all for your Love and Support over these years. I’m eager to discover the new opportunities that abound and my continued service. Thank you for Choosing IntuitiveSoul 

I had this breakthrough around ‘time’ this past week. It was too late to put in my Newsletter this month. It was about how although we can’t change our past – it happened – we can change how we responded to it which will assist us to shift our perceptions of the past and our fears. Tom Campbell and I discussed this in our latest interview. Check it out.

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: November 2018

We start the month with Venus in retrograde (since October 5th, 2018). On October 31st, she retrograded back into the sign of Libra slightly shifting the energy from releasing values that no longer serve us to focusing on relationships. Do we need to release the relationship, or do we need to focus on repairing it? How are the people in your life serving you? Don’t act on those questions right now, just continue to ponder them. Wait until she stations direct on November 16th to move forward with your decision.

Also, on November 16th, Mercury will station retrograde in Sagittarius. This stimulates our minds higher beliefs. Our mind is being asked to look at our Souls (higher) perspective. One needs to look at the greater purpose of what our soul desires. Trying to think your way through your purpose is difficult now, so just accept what comes to your mind and allow the process to unfold.

The North Node (South Node) also shifts signs on November 6th. The Nodes are points between the Sun and the Moon that give us direction. Since April 2017 the North Node in Leo gave us the opportunity to open our hearts to the vibration of love and through forgiveness. Once it shifts into the sign of Cancer we are focusing on our personal needs. It is a time of allowing our vulnerabilities to show. People will be highly sensitive to this vibration and one must incorporate compassion and empathy into their being.  We are nurturing the child within as we respond to others in our lives.  Read Full Article…

Inspiration: BEing is a Choice

“’Doing’ is a means to an end but ‘Being’ is a choice.” This quote came to me as I was preparing for a meditation this month. I thought it was important because it embodies what I have been teaching for years now. Things happen and we react to what is happening by ‘doing’ something to change it if we don’t like what is happening. Even when our heart is in the right place we are still manipulating what is happening in our lives or the lives of others. We may try to fix, change, heal – but we are ‘doing’ something to manipulate what is happening. Doing is just a way to change our outside world. We may do things from fear or from a place of love – however it is still ‘doing’ something on the outside in hopes to change how we feel about what is happening on the inside. The outside world is dictating to us how to respond to a given situation. And this is backwards!

’Doing’ is a means to an end but ‘Being’ is a choice.

What happens to us isn’t a choice – how we respond to it is. How we choose to ‘show up’ to the world is a choice. How we choose to BE in any given moment is a choice. The outside dictates our reactions only when we are unconscious and stuck in linear time – thinking about the past or future and not in the NOW moment. We can choose to respond to any situation out of Love and Compassion. We can choose to BE happy or be angry when someone does something we don’t like. We can begin our day setting an intention of how we want to feel or BE during the day and make a conscious effort to remain in that energy all day regardless of what happens around us – because we have a choice! We are the only one who can choose how to ‘show up’ in our lives.

Let me explain the bit about being unconscious and stuck in linear time. When something happens – good or bad – we/our brain (ego) automatically reacts to situations from our past experiences and our reactions are mostly unconscious. This is our brain’s way of compartmentalizing various responses and how we create patterns. Our brain believes we have already ‘defined’ our experiences and our emotions and sees each event as similar to another event so our brain automatically responds the same way as it did in the past. This is typically where we get stuck – because we have responded to betrayal or an accident or pretty much anything that has ever happened to us in the same way as we have before. It is why we see the world the way we do. It is part of our ‘story’ and that story continues unconsciously until we begin to see the world for the first time again … as we stand in the present moment BEing fully conscious. Then and only then can we choose how we want to respond in any given situation. And also be aware that there is a choice in how to respond.

What happens to us isn’t a choice – how we respond to it is.

Oct 2018 Newsletter: Understanding Failure and Responsibility

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving & Halloween

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: Venus Retrograde October 5th to November 16th, 2018

In a year of opening our heart chakra we need to look at all aspects that has us in a place of not loving fully. Venus incorporates our relationship with other people, our relationship that we have with our self, and our relationship that we have with money (which is really about our personal values and beliefs). There are a couple of ways this energy can manifest. When we look at love it is a higher vibrational emotion. Venus can often trigger emotional responses within the self, but not superficial emotions, deep emotions of love, as well as, its opposite. Whenever we are dealing with other people and how we relate, it really has nothing to do with the other person and in fact we are dealing with how we relate to our self. We are working with re-establishing a proper relationship with ourselves and that is simply mirrored out into our relationships with others. Do you respect yourself? You will find the answer to that simply by attracting people who dis-respect you. Do you love who you are, flaws and all? You will notice that in your relationships if others are constantly judging your flaws and pointing that out to you. Anything you notice about your relationship energy that you do not like is simply a mirror of how you may not notice you are relating to yourself. Venus retrograde in Scorpio will show you who and what have outlived their purpose in your life. Typically, when this takes place, relationships will come to an end. If not a complete ending, then they will transform or change on some level, so that a deeper connection or bond can be made. Any relationship that makes it through a Venus retrograde in the sign of Scorpio and Libra, will be made stronger, or become a more authentic reflection how you are relating to yourself.

If we look to our relationship with money under the Taurus (personal values and beliefs) rulership. What deadwood do you need to release? The house of Scorpio is ruled by several factors; death, transformation, rebirth, other people’s money, loans, and taxes. When Venus stations retrograde in its opposite ruling sign, loans may be overdue, and the stress is weighing on you in some way. There is a possibility of finding a solution to your current financial wows, the key to remember is do not make them any worse. Focus on a plan that will ensure your ability to take back your power by not overspending at this time. When spending, ask yourself “Is there any value in your current purchase?” If not, then it is best if you focus on paying back what it is that you owe.

New purchases are not suggested especially if they are a major ticket item. Instead really contemplate the value that you bring to the world, and the lessons you are learning with your current financial situation.

Keep in mind if you are feeling low energy, or lower vibration emotions, than this is all a part of your re-evaluating your worth out in the world. There is an opportunity to find a sense of balance once Venus stations direct in the sign of Libra.

Make sure you take the time to ponder your current feelings around love and value

Inspiration: Failure and Responsiblity

This month’s inspiration came again from Emmanuel Dagher and my beginning work with Peace Mother Geeta Sacred Song. I think about many concepts in my mind as I grow on this journey. Last month I touched on Failure in Feelings vs Emotions. Since then the Fear of Failure has become a theme in my work. This is always a sign about the importance of something entering my life. And I pride myself on being a Leader by Example. When I go through something I know I can assist others. So the Fear of Failure is one of our deep core fears that can be responsible for blocking us from Thriving in this life. Plus: Responsibility is something I have examined many times – as I knew that this term “responsibility” carried a heavy weight. Emmanuel in our last Healing Session from Club Miracles shared that Lack of Prosperity often is because we feel too much “responsibility” in our lives and this ‘heaviness’ is closely related to our Fear of Failure.

Fear of Failure is one of our deep core fears that can be responsible for blocking us from Thriving in this life.

Let’s look at this concept of responsibility. When we feel a responsibility towards something or someone we feel obligated and can feel guilty or shame when we don’t measure up or perceive ourselves as a ‘failure’! I remember working at the Government and feeling the heavy weight of ‘responsibility’ towards colleagues, staff, clients and society as a whole. Then I would examine my anxiety around the responsibilities toward family obligations and even cleaning (as I have allergies with dust so cleaning would create other problems). This concept I had over ‘responsibility’ was way too dense and heavy energetically. I would begin to feel anxious at any hint of responsibility … until I figured it out and then I began to understand that it was my perceptions of responsibility that was to blame and not my work, family and home that was the problem. And I thought I had shifted it; clarified my relationship with responsibility. However, when Emmanuel was sharing our perceptions around financial freedom and that it is our fear of responsibility that is causing the blocks – I remembered my earlier understandings and realized that responsibility still plays a HUGE role in my fear around financial freedom. I look at Income Tax and specifically HST as a block – which is a responsibility that I don’t want.  However I also feel responsible to my clients, my listeners and the audience of my website. When something goes wrong I feel responsible for it. Read More…

Nov Newsletter 2013 ~ Can you be Grateful for what you don’t want?

Happy American Thanksgiving!

We are definitely seeing the beautiful colors of Fall and getting the cooler temperatures up here in the North. I wanted to express my gratitude to my American friends for their Thanksgiving that we celebrated last month, and decided to use it to inspire my article about Gratitude.

We have an empowering solar eclipse on Nov 3rd, it is time to set your intentions for the next year and use the energies of this eclipse to empower them. Just remember that Mercury is in retrograde till Nov 10th and add a couple of days before signing any new contracts or buying any new electronics.

I wanted to share that I have several new co-hosts joining me in January Victoria Lorient-Faibish and Jennifer Urezzio, so stay tuned for these exciting new changes. I also will have a guest/co-host Eric Altman joining me as soon as we can arrange it. Eric is an incredible healer who I have discovered and currently he is offering a daily free healing to those who sign up. Go to ericaltman.com and click on the red tab to the right of his site. I am truly grateful for his work!

If you have been following my journey into Health and Well-being, you know that I began a Dietless Slimming Program. It is the most complete program because it incorporates Mind, Body and Spirit.

BE grateful for everything in your life, not just what you want!

My Inspiration this month:

What is gratitude? I just finished listening to Abraham-Hicks video on YouTube (www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OIVg6e5pBQ) and although I don’t particularly agree with their view that The Law of Attraction is the only law that governs our lives, they made a couple of interesting points I’d like to discuss. The first point is to ask yourself, can you appreciate what you don’t want?  We easily see the value in appreciating what comes into our lives when it is something that we wanted but what do we tell ourselves about all of the rest? When you stop to reflect on this, you may find that behind each event or happening in your life you have created a story. For example, with almost everything in my life that happens that I don’t desire, I will find a way to add it to my “story” of abandonment. Whether it is on a friendship, intimate relationship or my relationship to money, it is added to my story in some manner. It can be different words, like being unsupported or feeling separate and alone, but it always adds to my experience of abandonment. So what effect does this type of storytelling have on our well-being?

Abraham-Hicks in their discussion on the LOA tell us that we are in control. I believe this is not entirely true.  In our world of taking 100% responsibility for everything in our lives we have to remember that we are co-creating with 7 billion other people, and things do happen that are outside of our control. However, we are the ones that interpret what significance they play in our lives and whether we take things personally and what story we will tell ourselves about it. Once you have initially reacted to a situation, you can then choose whether you want to remain in the energy that you initially responded to and adding it to your story about what happened or you can choose to have a new response to an old fear. You could acknowledge that this is not something that has “happened” to me, but just something that has happened and I now choose to be grateful for this new experience in my life, for all the richness it has brought me. Sometimes is it very effective if we dive into our discomfort and lessen its hold of fear over us. Once this is accomplished, decide if it was something that just happened and change your emotional experience of it, or whether our ego is engaged and has made it personal and about US. When our ego makes it about us, it can be much more challenging to shift the discomfort we feel, whether that is rage, anger, frustration or fear. Ultimately, we each need to decide how to “feel” about all that happens in our lives.  This is where I believe our control or being in charge lies. Read More:
