Happy Chinese New Year: The Year of the Pig

Image
Today is the Chinese New Year and we are beginning the Year of the Pig. In the Chinese zodiac, Pigs are the 12th sign and represent wealth, fortune & prosperity.
If you were born in these years, you are a Pig, so this is really your year to shine: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007. You have a beautiful personality and will be blessed with good fortune in life. Pigs won’t stand out in a crowd, but they know how to enjoy life and are hard workers.
Even if we’re not a Pig, this year we should work hard and enjoy life, blend with others instead of trying to outdo them. This is the year to invest (time, money, effort) in your dreams & future. This is how we will prosper & change or luck to positive. No more procrastinating!
February, May & August will be the best months and when we should make any major changes. We are cautioned during the months of July, September & January (2020).
We should pay closer attention to our physical body and work on building strengt…

Don't Bow Down

Image
There is so much hate in the world. Do you support the hate or do you support love?

We need to stop causing pain to others. We need to stop using the energy of hate to try to fulfill our own agendas.

Hate is fear.

It's time we started loving each other for who we are instead of hating each other for not being who you think we should be, or who you're afraid we may become.

It's time we started to raise each other up instead of tearing each other down.

So if you're the one who's hating, what are you so damn afraid of?

And if you're the one who's being hated, don't you dare bow down. Let them hate you, because by hating you, it makes the rest of us see you even brighter.

And when you stand up for yourself, you gain your power.

And know that you speak for all of us. You speak for those of us who have yet to find our voice, those of us who have not found our own power to stand up to our haters, to yell loud enough for others to hear.

So shine your power. Sparkle. Sp…

What Does Christmas Mean to Me?

Image
Christmas, to me, isn't just about religion.
There is more to Christmas than the Christian’s celebration of the birth of Jesus (which some say was not even in December). There is certainly more to Christmas than shopping, trees and lights, family squabbles, and an abundant feast. There is so much more to Christmas that you don’t have to be Christian to celebrate.
Christmas occurs right after the Winter Solstice, which falls in line with Jesus’ teachings of awakening to love, awakening to our true purpose, awakening to enlightenment. This indeed deserves to be celebrated. In fact, Christmas falls 3 days after the Winter Solstice – 3, the number of days after his crucifixion that Jesus rose again, was reborn into his spiritual body where he will live for eternity. We, too, can use this energy to rise again, be reborn with greater awareness to our own spiritual bodies that will exist for eternity.
Use this time to celebrate life, not just the life you have created, but…

Gratitude: A Sacred Spiritual Practice

Image
In order to understand the spiritual significance of Thanksgiving, we need to look back to its origin. 

In September of 1620, the Mayflower left Plymouth, England, carrying religious separatists looking for a new home where they could freely practice their faith. They also brought with them others who were looking to start a new life with the hopes of gaining prosperity. They landed farther north than anticipated, in what we now call Plymouth, Massachusetts.

The first winter was brutal on them and most of the colonists remained on board the Mayflower. They suffered from exposure and outbreaks of disease and only half of the Mayflower’s original passengers and crew lived. 

That spring, the remaining settlers moved ashore, and they received a visit from an Abenaki Indian who greeted them in English. Several days later, he returned with another Native American, Squanto, a member of the Pawtuxet tribe who had been kidnapped by an English sea captain and sold into slavery before esca…

What Are You Grateful For?

Image
November. The month of Thanksgiving. The holidays are the perfect time to reflect on the past year and extend thanks for all the people who love you, all the opportunities that you were given, all the successes you had.

If you loathe this time of year it could be because you've focused on the people who hurt you or left you lonely, all the opportunities that didn't come your way, all the mis-takes you made, all the chaos that you endured.

Experiencing the holidays in a joyful way is all about creating an attitude of gratitude.

Do you want to manifest a successful, loving life or an unsuccessful, lonely one? Gratitude is what makes the difference.
What is your dream? What have you done to move towards it? Have you planned for it, focused on it, taken any steps toward it? Or have you always told yourself, or had others make you believe, that you're not good enough, strong enough, brave enough to try?

How our dreams come true begins with us. It begins by choosing l…
