Blocked In (True Story)

Happy Tuesday! 

Have you ever had something happen so random that you never saw coming? 

Here in AZ, there was a powerful dust storm that swept through our neighborhood-it lasted maybe an hour, but in that time, the huge tree that sits outside the front of our home came crashing down.

When I opened the front door, the brand that broke had completely blocked the entrance and there was no way to get out that way. I had to go through the garage. 

I had been doing some massive Feng-Shui and of course, that’s where my mind went!

No! I can’t have it blocking our front entrance-that’s blocking opportunities coming in. 

Rob rolled his eyes. 

Not long after, a landscaper happened to be driving by-again, middle of the day, super seemingly random, but I don’t know that I believe in random. 

He said it looked like we needed help and offered his services. He was super grateful for the work and we were super grateful for him. 

And what I realized is that as that branch and possibly the entire tree get uprooted and removed from the property, I can choose to look at it from another perspective. 

Instead of going into my head, freaking out about how it’s temporarily blocking our entrance and “opportunities,” what if this was the massive removal of blocks to said opportunities and growth? 

Whoa…I’m telling you, I teach this stuff and there are days like this when Spirit truly reminds me who is really in charge. 

Q: What in your life is being removed or released right now? How can you see it as a blessing? 

Let me know in the comments below!

No Power, Getting Married in a Storm + a Reminder

Happy Tuesday!

How are you? 

Wanted to share something with you today that I hope will invite you to open your heart. 

In light of the recent events in Texas, appreciation for what I have in my life came up so strongly. 

My father lives in Houston and he had no power or running water-and for the brief moments when I did get to speak with I’m on the phone before it went out again, he shared how the neighbors were all banding together to help each other with resources. 

I reconnected with a childhood friend whose parents are also there and she shared how their local church was supplying water for others. 

And finally, one of my fellow Goddesses actually had eloped and planned to be on the beach for her ceremony and got stuck in the storm-her best friend was flown in for the ceremony and because conditions were what they were, all three of them had to stay in one hotel room during her honeymoon!

Talk about an opportunity to get closer! What could have been a disastrous time ended up being a time to laugh, connect and enjoy an unconventional experience together. 

But it brings me to this point: In any moment, we can choose something to appreciate or we can choose something to complain about. 

And when it comes to love, when you are truly appreciative of the relationships that uplift you in your life NOW (friendships, family, work associates, clients, etc) you signal the Universe to send you more people that match that frequency! 

It’s a great week to do an Energetic Inventory. 

Here are two questions to journal on as we come to the finish line of February: 

Q: Which relationships drain you and feel like you are compromising your authentic self? 

Q: Which ones do you need to honor more? These are the ones where you feel like you are accepted and loved for who you are. 

Have a blessed week and if you struggle with maintaining a positive mindset during challenging times, click here.

Have you ever felt like you weren’t good enough when it comes to dating? 

Anxiety that comes up after you don’t hear from a really great second date where you though for sure things went well? 

Or how about when you have this awesome day and then one thing happens that completely derails your mood and you wonder WTF you can do to climb out of it? 

No one teaches us how to love ourselves in these moments.

Self-love isn’t some luxury thing we only do when there is “enough money,” “enough time” or “enough (insert whatever you want).” 

It’s right up there with physical health and maintenance – it’s emotional maintenance! 

If you struggle with that (I certainly did!), I have found that it’s often the small, bite-sized things that we do consistently that really make a difference. 

And self love is no different. 

You have to learn to crawl before you can walk!
