Opportunities

BE OPEN

We are bombarded by opportunities left and right every day, and when we are in alignment these opportunities are like a bowl of frozen raspberries with cacao nibs and coconut sugar. aka yummy.

These days, when we ask for something . . . ta da! there’s the opportunity for us to take to give us exactly what we asked for. The more in alignment we are, the more instantaneous this becomes.

Its really insanely wonderful. Once you get the hang of it lol

Its when we don’t take the opportunity that things get sticky and uncomfortable.

There is still work we have to put in to releasing the old to make room for this new awesome . . . but we come to find the ‘work’ is fun! It only becomes hard when we start taking actions in the opposite direction of our desire.

( thank you universe for making me uncomfortable to guide me back in the right direction )

Look for these opportunities. Be open to them. Encourage them and want them in your life. Most of the time they are already there, waiting for us to remember them, but we are too fast-paced and not present in the moment enough to see them. Which is a bummer because these opportunities are exactly what we need to grow and evolve. ( in turn living out our wants and dreams)

I used to use the phrase ‘follow your dreams’ all the time and then realized a couple things – First – what were my dreams? What was it that I was dreaming about every night when my head hit that pillow. Was there a common theme? HECK YES THERE WAS. That was what I needed to follow.

Second – once I started listening and following, I then realized I no longer wanted to follow my dreams. I wanted to LIVE my dreams. To turn them into my reality.

So I ‘gave in’ so to speak. I call this surrendering now, or even better, releasing my grip and letting myself fully feel the present moment. It allowed me to see where I was, release these blocks that had been built up, and open me up to allow opportunities to begin to present themselves.

These opportunities are what gets us to where we are wanting to go.

Which really, at the end of the day – the root of everything we could ever desire is a deeper and deeper feeling of love and bliss. The things and experiences we crave – are what bring about these emotions of love and bliss.

It is important to keep our wants in our minds and bring an awareness around whether or not our actions are actually in alignment with them, but it is just as important to be open and ready to do something different, to take a step in a direction you haven’t gone before, otherwise life will constantly be giving you what you want, while you’re still over there waiting for it. 

In order to get something different – to have something that we have never had – to experience something that we have yet to do – we have to realize that means we have to do something we have yet to do, to get it.

Be open.
Be willing to try new things.

Get out of your comfort zone. Like way out. The more you push the edges of that comfort zone the bigger it gets, which means the next hurtle will be a little bit higher, a little bit scarier, a little bit tougher to throw yourself over.

but that also just means – whats on the other side is that much more amazing.

Realize that what you want, wants you, but you have to be willing to do something you haven’t yet done to receive it.

p.s.

as I write this, it is also a reminder to myself, that I currently have wants waiting for me too.

I am on this journey right along with you .

reprogramming, rewiring our minds, back to a space where everything was once perfectly aligned.

Aligning Energy with Action

Deciding when to take action. 

There is a right and wrong time to make decisions
and take action on them. 


Here’s the not so good time: 
When we are stressed

 Sad
When our mind is running like crazy 
When we feel like there’s not enough time in the day to do everything we need to 
When we aren’t enjoying what we’re doing
When we’re tired 
When we’re angry or frustrated 

Here’s the perfect time: 
When you’re centered 
Grounded
 Balanced 
When life feels like its worth living 
When you’re flooded with amazing ideas of things you want to do 
When your mind is still
When the thought of an outcome brings a smile to your face 
When you feel loved 
When you feel light and joyous
When you feel ambitious

Making sure we wait until we are in a good place to make decisions will help your life flow so much more smoothly. The feeling of regretting a past decision or fretting over whether or not you made the right decision is no longer an issue. 

You will be confident you made the right choice and this right choice opens life up and allows us to live more in the present. 

How to get yourself in the right mindset / the perfect time: 

Do what brings you peace.

What gives you a clear mind? 


Here are some of my own personal things I do to clear my head and de-stress when life gets crazy. 


I go to the beach and either run and stretch, or sit and meditate. Or both. 


I do yoga. (meditation)

Clearing the mind of unnecessary thoughts.
I write. 
I draw. 
I hike. 


Sometimes this is a solo activity. Sometimes I need communication and connection.

Find what works for YOU in your current moment. 

We seem to have come to a place where when someones asks us a question, needs a favor, or a decision needs to be made we feel we have to respond right away. We don’t!

It is perfectly okay, and even better if we take the time we feel we need to respond. Not only will this make you feel more in control and end in a better result, others will appreciate our willingness to take time to make the right choice. Trust and respect will grow. In yourself, and from others.

I hope this finds you on a day when you are needing it the most.

All my best,
