Hello my beautiful friends! Welcome to November!!
My goodness. I cannot tell you how much I’ve been looking forward to November!
Over the last while I’ve been telling people: “Wait until November; things will be better then and much easier.” I’m EXCITED about this month. Already, I feel the energy and am running through the gates of manifestation. BRING…IT…ON! Haha!
I’ll tell you, the last few months have been just, well, “okay.” (wink and a smirk). I’ve had blessings come my way which I’m so grateful for, but emotionally, I haven’t been feeling overly excited about too much. I’ve missed my family and friends back in Phoenix, resisted being in Los Angeles and have been so busy working and just coping, that I haven’t truly been living and enjoying. It’s taken a while to adjust, but I am proud of how I’ve dealt with the process, what I’ve accomplished so far, and feel in my heart that it is only going to get better. I know with big risks come big rewards (well, I hope that’s the case here. Haha!).
To summarize the above, I am happy to say… I’M BACK!! And as enthusiastic as ever! Something is in the air and I feel it with every fiber of my being. Now, I cannot identify what the excitement is about, but I like the element of surprise that accompanies the energy I’m feeling, so we’ll all just have to wait and see what it’s about.
(see…I’m dancing…it’s a start:)).
Now how are all of you feeling??? Come on, don’t be shy? You feeling a different energy going into November???
Of course there is a message in this post, (I cannot resist) so please open your ears, eye, hearts, minds…here it comes…
The message is this: ALLOW. Allow yourself to be exactly who you are in every moment. Do not filter, resist, shut down, hide. Allow yourself to live, grieve, laugh, cry, learn, cope, love, be afraid, be hopeful, be vulnerable…just allow it to happen. What I’ve learned from the transitions in my life is how to allow myself to be exactly how I need to be in the moment and always. I’ve allowed myself to be overwhelmed and to voice that to friends and family. I’ve allowed myself to be sad, to grieve being away from people I love. I’ve allowed myself the space to heal, grow and learn. I’ve allowed myself to love, to be open and to not feel like I need to be anything or anyone other than exactly who I am…as vulnerable and sensitive as that may be at times.
So often in my readings, relationships and interactions with people, I see resistance and how people attempt to protect themselves. I see how we as humans create blocks and limit ourselves. I see how we don’t “allow” ourselves to feel, to express our emotions, to love and to learn from an experience. Instead we force. We push. We contradict and stifle because we are afraid that if we shared our truth, we will be rejected…and worst of all, we won’t be loved.
Allowing in my mind is different from letting go. Allowing is a conscious decision, a permission we grant ourselves. “I will allow myself to let this go.” See what I’m saying?? Permission first (allowing), action to follow (letting go).
I’m “allowing” myself to have some fun. I’m working hard and things are building with my business and readings, which is exciting, but I am giving myself permission to be light and play, too:) I can do both. Haha! I hope you do the same!! Come play with me!! PLEASE:)
I am thrilled to announce that Life Aromatherapy products are now in Exhale Center for Sacred Movement in Venice. It is a world recognized studio with some of the best yoga teachers in the country. The staff and environment are wonderful and incredibly gracious. Thank you Exhale! I’m so thankful!! Come check out the studio if you’re in the area or visiting. They have classes for everyone and their studio is beautiful.
We are are also doing well selling our Chakra Sprays at Mystic Journey Bookstore. It’s a special store in Venice where you can literally spend hours reading and perusing through all their delightful items. I do readings there every Wednesday and am so happy to be part of the energy there and what they are doing. Thank you Mystic Journey!!
