I No Longer Offer Oracle Card Readings

Just a quick post to let you know that I will no longer offer Oracle Card Readings. Why?

On January 3, 2017, I pulled an Oracle Card for myself that asked me to look at WHY I do what I do for my Life Purpose. Last week I sat down with my journal and explored that.

When I was choosing what to do in college, I wanted to go into ART but since I was a single mother at 18, I decided that wasn’t realistic.  I needed something to make money that I was good at. I am very good with numbers so I decided to get my degree in Accounting. I have no regrets doing so as it provided for me and my family for many years. I left that career in 2011 feeling very unsatisfied and bored.

I saw a correlation I didn’t like. I went into Accounting because I was good at numbers and it was an easy way for me to make money. I put Oracle Card Readings on my website because I am very good at Oracle Card Readings and it was supposed to be an easy way for me to make money. <—  See the correlation? That is why I have decided to no longer offer Oracle Card Readings.

Action Step:  Journal about WHY you do the things you do in your life. Pick one big one. Don’t be superficial here, get deep and explore. When you find your why, does that make you want to continue doing this or not?

I don’t know what 2017 is going to bring me with my Life Purpose but I am ready and willing to be open to the journey.

Thank you for being on the journey with me.

Where I AM in this Moment

Last week, on my Instagram and Facebook accounts, I wrote that I was going to write a blog post and send a newsletter out that day. All fired up and ready to tell FEAR where to go, I started writing both the blog and the newsletter. Then something went wrong on my website and I couldn’t do anything on it. Talk about UGGGHHHH!  Here I made this promise to do something and I was prevented from doing it by technical issues.

Today, I try to login to my website and get the same technical error. Instead of freaking out or succumbing to FEAR, I go to my Web Host’s page and start a CHAT conversation with their help team. But before I started the CHAT, I intended that the problem would easily fixed within 5 minutes. (I have been on a CHAT conversation that lasted an hour before that went nowhere and did not fix the problem!) Guess what, today’s problem was solved in 7 minutes with minimal input from me and no frustration (except trying to remember who my Web Host was, haha.)

Lesson Learned: Intentions, positive belief and asking Source for help goes a long way.

Changing subjects now… If you read some of my Instagram posts towards the end of 2015, early 2016, then you know all about how hard the ‘failure’ of my life purpose/this website have been for me to deal with. I decided I was going to shut my website down by stopping the annual renewal fees on it.  I hesitated a week and got the dates all messed up in my head and it automatically renewed before I could tell them to stop it. HA! Guess the Universe didn’t want me to give up; but I still didn’t know what to do with my Life Purpose so I just gave up on it. I started doing lots of Yoga Challenges on Instagram and won some of them too. In retrospect, I can see that the Yoga Challenges were something that I could do well and brought me joy; unlike my Life Purpose. And hell, at least I was being “paid” to do them by occasionally winning prizes!

But then I see this sign on my computer for the past couple weeks that says “do you want to be in the same place a year from now?” Uggghhh…..  I have lived the past 3 years of my life in almost the same place. I was in the same place each year but at least I felt a bit happier and fulfilled when I was TRYING to do something/anything with my Life Purpose. So here I am again. TRYING.

Thanks to some words from two beautiful woman on Instagram this morning, I came to 3 very profound conclusions today.

  1. I am blunt and truthful when I talk and I was shamed by others about it. Certain people have told me that I should be nicer when I talk or that I should manipulatively say things as though not to hurt anyone’s feelings. What has happened since then is that I have been on this quest for a few years now to try to be less blunt and more acceptable to others. But no one could tell me exactly how to do it and it didn’t feel in alignment with who I AM because THAT ISN’T ME. I tell the truth. I tell it like I see it. I don’t manipulate my words to make others feel better about me. I now choose to embrace this part of me instead of thinking that I am wrong or less than; regardless of whether others accept me or not. I’m not everyone’s cup of vegan tortilla soup, and I don’t need to be.  In the words of Lady Gaga, “There’s nothing wrong with loving who you are, because He made you perfect babe.” (~Born This Way)
  2. I need to keep doing what *I*  want to do with my Life Purpose; not what others expect or want. Just be me. Accept who I am, not change to fit a mold of what I think others want. I made an online program to help others and I based it on what I thought others could use and how I could help them change their life for the better. It wasn’t exactly what I wanted it to be but I thought it was a good compromise between what services I can offer vs. what potential clients need and would pay for (because all the information I learned online  said that’s what I was supposed to do. That info also told me I should come up with this attention sparking blog titles and email subject lines. I just caught myself looking at changing this blog post title so more people would read it and told myself NOPE! What will be, will be.) When I offered my online program up for sale on Black Friday,  no one signed up. So I compromised what I wanted to do based on what I thought others needed and it still went nowhere. Hmmm…. Time to just do ME. Be true to ME.  In the words of Rebecca Campbell “You do YOU.” (~Light is the New Black)
  3. I realized today that something I naturally do very well, is not JUST something I do well, but it is a GIFT of mine. Meaning it is something I can do well that some people can’t do. I have an amazing analytical skill and an amazing intuition. Both of those together help me with my gift. I have a gift to see the blocks on people’s path to a better life. While I am not able to magically change people’s lives for the better (it’s their job to do that), I can point out their blocks and help them find ways to overcome them.
  4. Bonus Number Four I have just come up with. I love it when all the pieces come together! With my truthful, blunt voice, I will assist others on their path by seeing their blocks and directing them towards positive change. ME doing ME while living my Life Purpose. I know that sometimes I can’t see my way through the forest and all it took was someone else saying something to me that shifted my perspective. It made me see things I couldn’t/would’t/didn’t see before. I see myself as the voice guiding others out of the forest on a path that sparkles with hope and contentment and positive change in their life.

What does that mean for my clients? Specifically, I don’t know since I just realized it! Sounds maybe like One on One mentoring sessions that are Mind/Body/Soul Practice directed. Please feel free to drop me a contact form on my website’s Contact Me page if this is something you would be interested in pursuing with me.

I am now open to see what path my Life Purpose takes me.

Namaste, Love & Light to YOU.

Why Practice Kundalini Yoga?

I love to practice Kundalini Yoga. It is a deeply meditative practice that gets me centered, shuts my mind off and gets me in the moment. It also uplifts the energy in and surrounding my body. I primarily work with Maya Fiennes DVDs. She follows the teachings of Yogi Bhajan. I first became interested in Kundalini Yoga when I heard Gabrielle Bernstein talk about it. She has many Kundalini Yoga Practices in her book Miracles Now. Continue reading

Has Anyone Ever Told You “You’re Ugly”?

Today I came across a post by a friend who was talking about how 2 girls tortured her when she was young by calling her ugly on a daily basis. Her story brought up a similar one from my past. I was teased starting in grade school starting about 4th grade. I was teased for various reasons: being called a nerd because I was smart and wore eyeglasses, being called a whore because my last name started with the sound of that word (at a time when I didn’t even know what a whore was) and being called ugly. All of this affected me at a very deep level for many years. Even when I got contacts at the age of 16, I still spent so much time on trying to look less ugly. I kept trying to make myself prettier and prettier because I didn’t know I was beautiful already. And I won’t even get into how my parents unknowingly supported those horrible words because they never told me the opposite: that I WAS pretty or beautiful. As children, we spend so much of our time looking for approval, first from our parents and then from those at school. It truly is a shame that most of us were raised to look outside ourselves for approval. Here are the steps I took to heal the pain from my past.  Continue reading

About ME ~ My Turning Point Story

This picture of me is from November 2014. This picture is representative of a big step for me because I always used to see myself as ugly in eyeglasses due to some negative programming from my youth. Now, I look at me in my eyeglasses and I see beauty. It has been a long journey over the years from losing myself (maybe never really having a ‘self’ in the first place) to where I am today: healthy in mind, body & spirit. For the first time ever I can say “I Love My Life.” I chose to write about these parts of my life because I’m sure there are parts that will resonate with you. I changed my life in big ways and so can you!  Continue reading
