As this magnificent year draws to a close, we are gently reminded to reflect, to take a moment to contemplate the miraculous changes and opportunities we’ve experienced so far. We are reminded that both the light and darkness are valid aspects of ourselves that deserve inquiry. No longer must we shove down the darkness and turn our backs on it by covering it up with addiction or distraction. This is the time where the pure light of awareness can shine on all of those repressed feelings and memories that we’ve tried to ignore. Once we allow the murky waters of the unconscious mind to flow to the surface, we allow them to be released, transmuted, and healed for the greatest benefit of ourselves and others.
I invite you to take a moment to still yourself in meditative contemplation, to move beyond the limitations of the fearful ego-mind. There is no reason to live in fear any longer. With your eagerness and sincere intention, you can choose to leave all of this behind, to no longer ignore it, but instead to fully face it so that you can finally let it go. Releasing all the baggage that’s weighed you down, for years maybe, and finally surrendering it to spirit, to your guides and angels. And you feel lighter, more attuned to the wisdom of the heart, your Higher Self.
This year, you are challenged to even more fully align with your soul purpose. The excuses and distractions are now over, whatever the ego-mind has constructed as an obstacle can now be unveiled and seen as it truly is, a delusion that prevented you from expressing your authenticity and creativity. With the knowledge that you are supported each step of the way, you can now set your beautiful intentions for the upcoming year. While you dream of what you want to manifest, know that you deserve abundance, success, love, and opportunity. In order to make your manifestations even more powerful, dwell in the heart space and ask yourself, “How can I serve? How can I give more? How can I fully align with my Highest timeline that will be of greatest service to others?”

Go within, retreating into the depths of your being, and discover a quiet place of solitude and surrender. Dwell in this space of peace and self-reliance, knowing that the seeming problems in your life are only opportunities for expansion. Pray to see the bigger perspective. Ask to be remain empowered and to be devoted to your mission, every day. Refuse to over-think the size of the task ahead. It here where the ego-mind springs into action, trying to dissect the situation and bring to the forefront all the obstacles and fears standing in your way. Affirm, “These fears can now be released as I more fully align with my true state of being, one of abundance, creativity, love, and success.”
The journey of a lightworker feels lonely and alienating at times, but in truth, we are never alone and we always have support. This blog is intended to be a light on your path, a gentle reminder that you are completely capable to manifest your highest potential, the divine life mission you chose to fulfill. Know that you have everything you need, you simply need to take the next right action. No need to worry about the “how” of your manifestations. The Universe takes care of the “how” while you take care of the “what” by aligning with the “why” of your heart space. By moving into alignment with your heart’s true desires, you manifest more quickly and inspire others on their journey.
And so it is.

Creativity beckons us to manifest our dream reality. There are several practices you can include in your daily routine to easily and gracefully attract your heart’s desires and amazing wishes. One way to attract more abundance into your life is to focus upon what you’ve already manifested. Write down a list of things you love and things you are grateful for today. Take some deep breaths and tune into your heart center. Allow the feeling of love to grow and expand while you think about everything you adore. Expressing gratitude is a certain way to attract more abundance, love, and opportunities, often in unexpected ways. When you step back and allow yourself to be guided by your heart, abundance effortlessly surprises you. Focus on your heart’s desires, and release attachment to how your dream will find its way to you. Fully trust your healing, intuition, and manifesting power. There is no worry about how it will happen. Surrender and allow all good things to flow to you now.
Another essential daily practice is meditation, sitting in a still and quiet space, allowing yourself to make a connection to your Higher Self. In this place of serene stillness, set an intention to be guided by your heart, releasing the ego’s will. Laugh in the face of the ego’s tiny mad idea, a concept from A Course in Miracles, which invites us to choose love and peace over fear. Forgiveness and unconditional acceptance of oneself and others expands our spiritual growth. Acknowledging your fears and bringing them to the light is a lovely way to release past worries.
Take time each day to do whatever makes you the happiest! I fill my days with music, hoop dance, yoga, meditation, healing and nature. Let your heart lead the way when it beckons to experience new things and travel the world. The most impactful changes occur when you are totally outside of your comfort zone, where nothing is safe or familiar. That is when you grow the most, often in a short time. Teach yourself and learn new things each day. Move closer toward your highest potential.
Shine On, Goddess!
