Questions

Sometimes we are filled with more questions than answers. It seems for me that there are always more questions than answers.  Especially lately.  Holy smokes!  It seems that when I get answers to the questions I ask, there are even more questions.  Here comes the, "Can I be patient?  Do I have the trust in my inner knowing? Do I trust the universe?"  Ya see, more questions!  HA! HA!  It's alright to have those questions.  It's alright to not know the answers.  When you are ready for the answers you will have them.   (That is what I keep reminding myself about anyway)

So what do we do in the meantime while we ask those questions and we are "waiting" for the answers.  We keep living.  We keep listening to our intuition, our inner knowing.  We keep working on ourselves and continuing to grow.  Take a deep breath.  It really IS ok to not have all of the answers. Give yourself grace, and be grateful for every day of gaining more knowledge.  It may not be the answers to your questions, but we are growing and learning in many other ways.  Self-Love is key in this state.  Loving yourself no matter whether you get your answers or not.   Just love it all!  HA!

It's Time

It's time.  It's time.  I keep hearing it's time.  Time for what?  It's time for us to unpack our bags. To release the conditions and beliefs that we have held for so long. The beliefs and conditions that we have held because others said it is the way it has to be because that is how they were taught.  How many of us still hold on to the belief that we need to look externally for our answers? That we couldn't possibly know what is best for us?

 "Ok," you say, "I am ready to release what no longer serves me.  I am ready to release the conditions and the beliefs of others.  But how in the heck would I go about doing that?"  It can be as simple as connecting with yourself when a belief or condition gets challenged or comes up in our day and ask, "Is this something I believe to be true for me?  Does this bring me joy in feeling this way?" If the answer is no, then lovingly release it.  It doesn't need to be there anymore.  We are here to experience love, joy, and happiness.  Why would we even want to choose anything else?

Sometimes we get caught up in, "Well, what will others think if I no longer believe that way?"  Ya know, what others think of us is really none of our business.  Even if they make it our business, it's their perceptions and opinions because of their conditions and beliefs that they were taught.  It really has NOTHING to do with YOU what they think about you.  Your thoughts about you are the only ones that matter.  The present is the best time to start with unpacking those bags and changing our thoughts into loving positive ones.  The airlines charge us to take extra bags when we fly.  Our bodies take a toll when we carry those extra emotional bags, beliefs, conditions, etc. It's time to let go. It's time to release which no longer serves us.  It's time. The time is now.

  Wow!  It has been a LONG time since I have written anything on my blog.  What better time than the present to start writing again.  So much has happened in the past year and a half.  Let's start from right now though.  The present is all that we have...

 Oh how our lives ebb and flow.  As I am quickening, I notice this pattern more easily.  Is it that I am just more aware?  Or is it that they are more dramatic?  Or is it that the tide is not as severe and being in tune with it is just causing the awareness.  Feels like a combination of all of it.  The fun part is staying in allowance and not get frustrated.  HA!!!  Yes....I say it too.  There are days when I allow the frustration to take over, and there are days that being positive is prevalent.  The wonderful news (to and for me that is! ;-) ) that the frustration is less and less these days.

  I started looking for a wonderful quote to throw in here, until I realized that I have one already in my head.  It's from a Budda Master.  "In order to have patience, one must have self confidence."  Huh.  Thank you!!!  I know now that it's best to focus on the solar plexus chakra.  Let's do just that.

  Close your eyes.  Take a deep breath, filling up your stomach first, before you fill your lungs.  Exhale deeply.  Feel the earth beneath you.  Focus where your rib cage comes together.  See the beautiful yellow sphere of light.  Know that you are confident, powerful and are worth it!  Keep breathing and focusing on the beautiful yellow chakra.  When you feel connected with it, you may open your eyes.


Know that you are fully loved and supported by the divine at all times.  Have patience and trust the process, because there is nothing to fear.  We are ALL loved.

  In Love and Light,
Nicole
