Soul Beginnings

The Existence of the Soul?

Déjà vu or misplaced memory? Do you believe in past lives and/or reincarnation of the soul? Have you ever had a moment that seemed so oddly familiar that you know you’ve been in that space of time in the same conversation, place or event before?

I’ve experienced these kinds of moments a few times and during that moment of familiarity it almost feels like things are moving in slow motion as I begin to make the connection and a sense or feeling comes to the surface. I do believe that these are the signposts along your journey to let you know you’re on the right path and meeting the right connections.

I’m not overly religious or immersed in any one belief system, I believe that all belief systems at the core have the same root in that they all stem from a higher source of power that we pay homage to and acknowledge. The fine details of each may differ but the purpose of the collective is having faith in something bigger than ourselves. Of course it is the option through free will that each of you get to choose or not choose where you want to place your faith but I don’t believe that the strength of your faith is dependent upon where or how you choose to honor it but rather the depth of your integrity, gratitude for life and compassion towards others.

A few years ago I had read a theory in a book by Sylvia Browne about past lives and her reference to what she called “bleed-throughs”, it has been a few years since I read this so I do not remember it exactly as it was written but the jist of her theory was with relation to someone experiencing a multiple personality and the possibility may not necessarily be a disorder but rather a bleed-through of a personality from a past life. I found this theory really interesting and wondered how far back into past lives these bleed-throughs can manifest from, maybe all the way back from the soul beginnings?

There are many accredited practitioners and psychiatrists, etc., that treat patients with past life regression therapy and/or hypnotherapy, so if the belief is there isn’t there a possibility that a past life has memories rooted in the soul so strongly that they may be blending in the current life you lead?

I recently watched an episode I had PVR’d of Oprah’s “Super Soul Sunday” with Dr. Brian Weiss who spoke about past lives and their impact which only furthered my interest in the subject of where it all begins for each soul. He spoke of one particular patient that turned his entire traditional training and belief system in a complete 180 degrees and how it changed his life direction and purpose. I imagine that even in the ideals of those in clinical and scientific study that rely and depend on factual evidence, thoughts or talk of this subject could be considered suicidal to a career, especially 30 years ago so I’d definitely say he was a trailblazer.


I am happy to see these skeptical subjects that long ago would have been considered “crazy talk” are now coming into the forefront of conversation and people are interested to know more. These topics aren’t easily proved because they lack the tangible and fact based evidence that is usually a requirement within anything of scientific nature. I think the biggest aspect of believing in the possibility of soul beginnings, intuitiveness and psychic experiences is within the foundation of your faith in the existence of things that you cannot see or touch.

With every life experience comes the opportunity to evolve your spirit more. I wouldn’t think that there would be anything awful about the thought of multiple life experiences because it just means you keep getting more opportunities to get things right, to progress and advance your soul’s higher learning.

My life experiences so far have continued to strengthen my belief in that higher source of power, when I feel unsettled I find inspiration comes in which reconnects me to the Universal source of energy that resonates within my soul. I trust that by following my instincts I will continue to follow my passion which in turn keeps me in alignment with my life’s purpose.

Things are shifting aren’t they and the more they shift the more connected we all become!

If You Build It, They Will Come

Believe It Can Happen!

One of the single most important aspects to manifesting your dreams is believing it will happen!

Whatever you seek in life is dependent upon your belief that it will actually happen and when you do fully believe you start living your life as if these things are already happening or on their way. Whether you realize it or not, this shift in your perspective and outlook makes room internally as well as externally and as a result you open the door to accept happiness and peace into your soul.

“If you build it, they will come”, speaking metaphorically of course, because it’s not just about that movie and building a baseball field, it applies to everything within your life and is exactly the state of belief and unwavering faith you need to embrace so the changes you wish to see can begin to manifest. You must be willing and open to change, you must be willing to do the work and make sacrifices, when the time is right the rewards will follow.


Sometimes though the rewards don’t turn out to be specifically what you expected and by that I don’t mean that you do the work and you there are no rewards; I mean that sometimes the work leads you to another path, one that has different challenges and/or roadblocks you might not have encountered otherwise and that changes the rewards. I believe that everything in life begins as part of the imagination and that inspires creativity, when you come up with an idea about something sometimes you have different thoughts along the way that change the original idea, that’s creativity! Creativity inspired can blossom into so many other areas that the possibilities become endless so when I say that sometimes the rewards change it is because the creativity that surrounds you is constantly moving.

Similarly you also are always moving, changing, adapting, creating, imagining, etc. When you operate in this state you are in alignment with the Universe as it is also moving, changing, adapting, creating, imagining, etc.

It makes sense that when you are operating within that alignment that YOUR possibilities become endless.

It’s the Law of Attraction, I’m sure you’ve noticed at certain times in your life when things just flow, like you’re “in the zone” and everything is working out beautifully. Alternatively there are also the times when everything seems to go wrong in a day and those are the days when you are not in alignment, you’re “out of the zone”. Most times you fall “out of the zone” is when you are resisting, likely one of life’s lessons, and believe me the more you resist the more you will have days like that.

I think sometimes resistance is the response to anything that is painful or challenging because it is much easier to look away from your pain or challenges than stare it down and deal with it. Understandably some difficulties take more from you than you want to allow but I’ve learned that when I face obstacles it builds me back stronger. I can honestly say that when it comes to life’s lessons there is no comparison to the strong sense of self you gain when you rise to the occasion.

Life’s lessons will open you to new understanding, perspective and outlook all of which will change who you are and how you view your world, these lessons are here to help you, not break you.

It isn’t until you are humbled by life’s lessons that you really develop the understanding of the bigger picture and of course that brings a whole other set of questions. The difference is that these questions become more about substance than material, more about internal than external and more about spirit than ego.

If You Build It, They Will Come!

love life, it will love you back

Sometimes You Have to Travel a Long Road

To Go a Short Distance!

It doesn’t matter what others do, it matters what you do!

Every occurrence, circumstance or event happens for a reason and usually that reason is connected to our own higher learning. I’ve thought in the past that when someone treated me in a way that was either manipulative, disrespectful or both that they deserved eternal condemnation but that’s not for me to decide. The Universe will handle it appropriately and in the right time, I need to trust in that, step back and draw some better boundaries to ensure it doesn’t happen again. We teach others how to treat us and honestly I’ve been a little too lax in my teachings in the past. I’ve often thought that the way I treated someone would be teaching enough as to how I also wanted to be treated but their intention in life may not be in alignment with mine. Learning how to decipher their intention and find only those that are in alignment with my intention is the lesson I am still fine-tuning.

I’ve always been someone that is super motivated to get to the next level so I can find out what the level after that is and so forth. I’ve come across people who live in a negative energy but have learned how to display passion that they also want to get to the next level but the truth of it is that if they wanted to get to the next level they would be doing something, anything, to be trying to get there and the lack that seems to be stalling them in place is really their own will or desire. The issue for them is that they have become content, familiar and/or addicted to their story because it serves as a great example/reason for the obstacles that prevent them from moving forward. The problem that will continue to plague them is that they are living in a negative mindset or point of view and that prevents the Universe from bringing the positive light in so the life that they secretly hope for but believe they don’t deserve can manifest.

live your truth

Imagine if you were meant for great things, which I believe we all are, we aren’t here to suffer, we are here to build and grow our souls so they can flourish but that can’t happen if a wall of negativity is blocking it from getting through. The biggest hurdle to letting all the good things get in is tearing down that wall and embracing that which makes you feel vulnerable or scared. Every time a monumental moment occurs hesitation is always there and rightly so, all monumental moments are the cusp of some impending change that will likely alter you in every area of life, which is why they are so scary and why we hesitate. Taking a leap of faith into unknown and unfamiliar territory is unnerving to say the least but every time I’ve ever done it I’ve never been disappointed, not even once! Even if it hasn’t led me to where I thought I was going, it has led me to something better.

It may seem easier, less scary, to keep yourself safely behind the protective armor of a negative mindset because at least you’re familiar with it, no one can hurt you there because you are already in defensive/protective mode but no good can get in either. So what you block out that hurts also prevents that which is good from getting through, I ask you, what’s more hurtful?

Even though the bad stuff feels rough, hurts and sometimes feels too overwhelming to overcome, it still comes with its gifts. That which does not kill me, only makes me stronger!

The more of the tough experiences you go through the stronger you get, the more resilient you get, the more capable you are of reaching for what you want and succeeding and when you combine that with embracing all things positive you more than double the power you’ve already gained from your experiences.

Sometimes you have to travel a long road to go a short distance. Imagine what you can do when you realize how powerful you already are!

It’s a New Year, and……

Opportunity Awaits

opportunity, new yearsI always look forward to the beginning of a New Year because it always feels like an endless amount of opportunities await and they do.  I believe the New Year is the change sometimes needed to wipe the slate clean and there is never a bad time nor is it ever too late to start a new and more positive way of living.  It’s not just the bountiful opportunities but the energy as well that is in the air and swirls all around and offers up change and the hope of new life.

The best time of the year to rid yourself of bad habits, a way of thinking or behaviour that is working against you rather than for you, or just changing/enhancing things for the better is at the beginning of the year when the universe is responding to all the positive energy of everyone’s grandest wishes and dreams.  At the beginning of the year is when all we have the highest hopes and plans for how we want to see the year progress and the energy associated can either flourish or fall to the wayside, it’s completely up to you!

New Year’s Resolutions made with the best intentions aren’t always carried through but whether or not they are successful depends on your own determination and will, and of course the extra energy that is in the air is of great assistance and inspiration.  I think the key to success is envisioning your end goal and seeing that in your mind’s eye, it helps maintain motivation during times of self-doubt, insecurity or impatience.

If you can see it, you can achieve it!

It’s not just motivating yourself but also supporting the lives and dreams of those around you, in doing that you are not only helping to enhance their life but yours as well and that builds good karma.  Keep in mind that the good karma is built or increased only if the intention is pure and not for personal gain.

There are many ways to increase your chances of being successful in achieving resolutions you have made:

–         If you plan to rid yourself of a bad habit doing so with a friend who also has that same goal can be motivational and you can support each other in times of considerations not to follow through.

–         If you plan to make a positive lifestyle change you can chart it on a vision board which can help you to achieve goals in smaller steps so you gain motivation to reach the milestones.

–         If you plan to wipe the slate clean and start anew, I think it may be a good idea to practice an “Act of Random Kindness” for each day of the New Year, although I think that’s a good plan for everyone to practice daily.

Don’t sell yourself short, you can do anything you want, there is no expiration date on dreams or goals.

There is no age limit that should deter you from changing anything you want to your liking.

I think the best thing we can do for ourselves is to be honest with who we really are, where we want to go, how we want to get there and what we will do along the way.  I think that everyone deep down knows the difference between the right and wrong thing to do and if you live your life according to that standard, knowing that doing the right thing is the only honorable way through life than you’ll achieve great success in every aspect of your life.

The most important state of being to embrace is that of gratitude, having uninhibited appreciation for all the blessings in your life will keep the door of opportunity revolving and create a richness of spirit beyond any amount of wealth one could ever achieve.

I have great aspirations for this New Year, I’ve been looking forward to it the whole month of December, not that I was wishing away the time but rather that it’s been a challenging year and my passion for closure to those challenges and positive change runs deep.

I strongly feel that 2014 is going to be filled with so many positive changes in every aspect of my life and I am looking forward to it.  I can feel that energy swirling and it has gained more momentum this year than I felt of it last year which can only lead to positive life changes that I know are going to enhance my life is more ways than I can possibly imagine.

Allow yourself the freedom to believe and the universe will respond to that belief.  Be mindful of your thoughts and generous with your heart and dreams and success will be just around the corner.

Opportunity awaits!

Out on a Limb!

Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone

This is where the biggest and most rewarding opportunities exist, the question is do you have enough faith to walk on the weaker branches in the hopes that you may find what you truly desire?  It takes great risk to gain a greater sense of freedom and happiness and even though I know this I sometimes hesitate to step ahead and away from the safety net that I prefer.  That safety net provides me with stability but not unlimited movement and it’s within the unlimited movement that an abundance of options and opportunities are waiting for me.

out on a limb

It’s crazy to think how easy it is to talk ourselves out of an opportunity that can ultimately change our lives in so many ways but I’ve done it, so I know it’s possible.  The reason I believe we sometimes talk ourselves out of pursuing something we desire is because “what if I can’t do it” or “what if I fail”.  The truth is it isn’t actually failure, we are meant to try but we aren’t always meant to succeed because it’s through that attempt that we find an inner strength that is needed to serve us in another endeavor, one we may not have gained otherwise.

I like to think of these instances as creative mistakes, mistakes that help point us in the direction we are supposed to be heading.  It’s as simple as searching for a friend’s home and turning down the wrong street, would you think you failed if you did that?  Not likely, you would just think “Geez, went down the wrong street”, now how do I get there from here?  The reason it is so minimal when it’s in that context is because going down the wrong street isn’t a big issue because there isn’t a huge emotional investment in searching for a friend’s home but there is in say a career choice or matters of the heart.  Of course the bigger goals and dreams will definitely carry a bigger emotional attachment because there is so much more riding on it and I can totally relate.scare yourself

The biggest indication for me that I am on the verge of a great opportunity is that I feel like I am scaring myself and sometimes that vulnerability can impair the courage that drives me forward but I know that I need to feel that so I can learn to trust and believe in myself.

My moment of truth in making the conscious decision to step outside of my comfort zone more than I stay in it will create the shift that will open up my world to a beauty that is beyond what I can imagine.

Not everything occurs as we may hope, believe or expect and if we knew the outcome of every experience we were in then I don’t think we would truly experience it as we are meant to.  All experiences that occur in our lives are there to teach and help us grow into the life we are meant to live.  If you aren’t living the life you want or desire, venture out onto the weaker branches as far as you can bring yourself to go, it is there where the best fruit is waiting for you!

We are all given the necessities that we require to achieve what we desire.  If you never try you will never know what you could really accomplish!

Imagine, Believe, Achieve!

three simple rules

Mirror, Mirror On The Wall

Are You a Shallow Hal with Yourself?

I liked this movie “Shallow Hal” because it’s actually a really good portrayal of how skewed a lot of us are when we look in the mirror at ourselves and how we sometimes view others.

There is so much more to see in yourself and others than just the surface of those you don’t know.  Have you ever noticed when you develop a relationship with someone (friends or love) that you begin to see beauty emanate from within them, and if it’s a solid and equal relationship than that is also what the other person sees in you.  If we could only see ourselves through the eyes of someone who views us that way we would probably be able to develop a much healthier relationship with our own personal image and truth.

I believe it all starts with being comfortable and embracing “the real you”, I mean why would you try to be anyone else when you can be yourself?  No one can be you better than you can, and when you’re being genuine chances are you’ll have more people interested to be in your company than you would being someone you’re not.

It really does begin with you and how you are viewing yourself and if you are you confident with “the real you” then nothing else can disturb that.  Of course, we are the harshest critics of ourselves, but if you can alter that and try to see yourself as those who love you see you than you will develop a strength of character that you had never realized was there.

One of the things I believe very strongly is that our minds are more powerful than we have even tapped.  I’ve heard it said that we only use 10% of our minds, 10%!  That’s crazy!  I’ve also heard that be discounted but regardless of whether the statement is true or not, it’s something worth considering.

So if you entertain that thought for a moment and consider what some of the greatest minds have accomplished, and if they are actually using only 10% of their brain then imagine if you bump that up to even 50 or 60% how much you could change in your world and way of thinking.  In books like “The Secret”, and movie/documentary of “What the Bleep do we Know?”, these kinds of thoughts and ideas are welcomed, embraced and explored.  If the concept is there I want to explore it, and if I find it to work (which I have) then it’s entirely worth it.

Have you ever wanted something to change so badly that you willed it to change?  That’s your mind working at whatever percentage is needed to accomplish what you’ve envisioned.  It’s what you feed that grows, make it positive!

Everything we have around us (things, items) all began with a thought, an idea, and then became real.  Probably even some of the craziest thoughts or ideas that materialized were discounted from the beginning but because of the belief and persistence of the person that envisioned it, it became real.  I believe that no matter what you envision you can create it, your mind is powerful enough to make it happen.

Believe in the strength and power of your mind and your visions and your reality will become what you see.  When you are confident, comfortable and accepting with “the real you”, you allow yourself endless possibilities to create the world you desire.

It’s a flow of positive energy that can’t be stopped, it’s an energy that is in alignment with the Law of Attraction and that all things you think about and believe will become that world around you.

I Believe!

The Foundation of all that is Possible

Believing in yourself and your dreams is the foundation that builds the reality and it’s the most essential component right from the beginning.  The dreams and desires are the easiest to determine, I think everyone has either a dream job, dream vacation or the entire dream life in mind.  I do not know the percentage of those that realize or do not realize their dreams but I do believe that what separates them are:

–          Belief

–          Courage

–          Determination

I’ve always felt that our belief system at its core is stored within the subconscious mind.  We are awake for a certain amount of hours in a day but when we daydream or sleep we cannot override the thoughts in our subconscious.  If the thoughts within your subconscious are in alignment with your conscious mind and you truthfully believe in you then believing in your dreams won’t be a problem.  If, deep down, you feel you aren’t deserving, for whatever reason, that belief is stored in your subconscious mind and will keep you from realizing your dreams.  Your subconscious is the default, the autopilot, like when you drive somewhere and you arrive at your destination but cannot clearly remember all the turns.  It’s not that your weren’t fully alert while driving but while your conscious mind was thinking about the day ahead your subconscious mind, completely aware, carried on the drive.

When people receive hypnosis perhaps to quit a bad habit or feel more empowered, they are put into an altered state of being (the subconscious) because in there lies the opportunity to re-program.  Same as playing CD’s while sleeping as an alternative to hypnosis.

Our conscious mind is not always aware of the subconscious mind but the subconscious mind is fully aware of the conscious mind so you can still continue to go about your day even when your conscious mind is distracted by the busy thoughts in daily life.

There are many things we do without thinking because they have become “second nature” so we do not hesitate and that is the subconscious mind, it’s like the hard drive of the human being.  For myself I’ve always used the analogy of the subconscious as relating to the old-style Jukebox.  You put the money in and the arm scans until it comes across the correct selected record and pulls it out to play.  The things I remember, I store them in my mind like the Jukebox and when I randomly need that info my brain scans until it finds the correct selected memory and brings it to my conscious mind.

I think everyone has old information, that may be either useless or not, but you still remember it, this is how powerful the subconscious mind is.  Imagine if you program in there your belief in yourself, your desire to succeed and your belief that you can achieve anything you set out to do that you truly have your heart into.

Remember your conscious mind is not always aware of the subconscious mind but the subconscious mind is fully aware of the conscious mind.  This is a very powerful tool you have at your disposal, it doesn’t cost you anything except to feed it your own desires and intentions.

The outcome can be truly fantastic, if you let it.

If you don’t already have your belief in yourself in your subconscious mind then write a new program for yourself.  Write it down and keep it somewhere that you can see it often so that after a while it becomes “second nature” for your subconscious mind.

I’ve attacheda link below to a You Tube video of the song and lyrics to “I Believe” by Yolanda Adams, it’s such a great song, inspiring and motivating.

–          I Believe I Can

–          I Believe I Will

–          I Believe I Know my Dreams are Real
