What’s Important to You Today?

I came across this question last night in reflection, and it reminded me to get back to the simple things that matter most. When I opened my journal, I landed on a page I wrote exactly two years ago with a visualization for success. As I was feeling particularly overrun by life last night, it was perfect timing!

I’m on the verge of another big change–as I was two years ago. At the time, we were about to move from Brussels, Belgium to Culpeper, Virginia and I wrote the visualization for six months into the future. It started with my relationships, covering how my husband, children, and even our old dog handled the transition and what they would come to find and love living back home in the United States. Then, it covered me: what I would accomplish, explore, and discover.

When we were overseas, my husband and I became convinced that we would have to move our family of 6 into a cramped townhouse in Northern Virginia because the cost of living here is so expensive. However, in my visualization, I covered housing next, stating that we were living in a spacious, single family home that had at least four bedrooms. The visualization covered our finances, and made clear that money was always available and never a concern. Finally, I covered extended family and friends, naming how they would receive us and visit often.

In all scenarios, that visualization, or something better, has manifested in my life. I never even realized it had all come into fruition until last night! Yesterday I was feeling overwhelmed, and I knew the best stress relief would be to do another six month visualization and highlight all the wonderful things that would unfold in the coming months. If you’re feeling stressed simply answer the following questions and create a visualization of your own:

In six months,
1. My relationships are … Here you want to describe how your primary relationships are doing. What are the people you care about most experiencing and achieving? Imagine them fulfilling their passions and discovering their best life.

2.  I am … what are you doing, learning, reading, enjoying? Describe all of that here. Are you living up to your potential? Are you fit and active? Do you feel excited about your life?

3. My home is … redecorated, remodeled, moved to another, more fitting location. If something’s not working in your environment, you imagine it better here.

4. My finances … Reach for abundance. Debt is paid down, financial freedom is on the horizon, and out of the blue, you realized another source of income you earn while doing something you love! Get creative here, and imagine yourself prospering at every turn.

5. Your extended family and friends … How do they receive you when they see you? How do you get along with your co-workers? How has your difficult family member become a little easier to get along with? Imagine all the people who make you feel really good and record how more experiences like that will be coming.

Wishing you all the best in love and life ♥

Deal of the Day on Spiritually Charged, Beaded Bracelets

I often have several incredible sales per week on my customer favorites at the Energy Shop. For instance, today’s Deal of the Day is this gorgeous Garnet, on sale at 40% off:

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”–Rumi

This stretch bracelet is full of warmth, everytime the light hits the Garnet it reminds me of deep red candy apples! It is composed of medium (10mm) Garnet gemstone and a sterling silver stardust bead.

Garnet is said to inspire love and bring luck. It is energizing and protective. Garnet opens the heart, bestows self-confidence, and removes inhibition and taboos. When worn with other stones, garnet amplifies their effect. This is also the January birthstone, and it compliments the Capricorn zodiac.

If you’d like to receive updates on sales and specials from the shop, please join Energy Shop @ Etsy on Facebook. All the best!

Spiritually Charged, Power Bead Bracelets and Jewelry at the Energy Shop!

Hellllloooo, little blog 🙂 it’s been awhile ♥ and we have some catching up to do.

Last year I published my book, The Rescue You Program, and when 2o1o hit I started this blog with full intentions of writing another. In fact, somewhere among my notebooks there’s one half of my next masterpiece written. I’ll soon be starting a search party for it.

It’s just that, you never know what life has in store for you. The Energy Shop came together for me, practically by itself, and it has taken over the second half of my year. I love that little shop, and I say thanks for the inspiration and talent to keep it running everyday. When I started, I bought a huge supply of white sage smudge sticks, thinking that was going to be the big seller. I figured, I love making jewelry, so I’ll list a few things with the smudge sticks–and maybe, just maybe, someone might buy some of my bracelets.

When all of the bracelets I listed sold out in the first week, I had to make more bracelets! And so it has developed and grown, and I have an amazing 800 and counting sales on Etsy with 100% positive feedback. I’m beyond ecstatic with my home-based business, and I still have a full supply of smudge sticks, if anybody’s interested 🙂

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated this blog, so today I’d like to feature a few of my favorite things from the shop.

 

Blue Chalcedony

 

Even after all this time,
The sun never says to the earth,
“You owe Me.”

Look what happens with A love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky. –Hafiz

This Blue Chalcedony Bracelet represents optimism and is said to bring acceptance of new situations. It opens the mind and improves perception. I love this bracelet for the New Year. Let’s Unleash the Possibilities in 2011!!

 

Colors of the 7 Chakras Bracelet

 

This Colors of the 7 Chakras Bracelet is a customer favorite.  For the Crown Chakra, I’ve used loving Alexandrite. For the 3rd Eye Chakra, spiritually-aware Amethyst. For the Throat Chakra, you have transformational Blue Agate and for the Heart Chakra, protective Green Jade. For the Solar Plexus I used joyful Yellow Topaz. For the Sacral Chakra, cleansing Amber. And finally, for the Base Chakra, I used passionate Red Jade. Combine these stones and these colors for a true alignment.

 

Gemstone Tree of Ambition

 

If you’re not into jewelry, you can use your Feng Shui 9-Square Bagua to position the gemstones in the ideal location of your home or office. This Tree of Ambition is made of Blue Goldstone, an uplifting motivator. And, if you haven’t noticed . . .

The Energy Shop is now organized by intention!  You can find all the items you’re looking for to Improve your Focus and Meditation, Honor your Spirituality and Faith, Channel Healing and Calming energies, Increase Love and Friendship in your Life, Enhance forces of Positivity and Protection, Maintain Health and Wellness, and/or Attract Wealth and Success.

Whatever your best intentions, I wish you a WoNdeRfuL Holiday Season and an abundance of good fortune for the New Year. Until next time, ♥

Matters of the Wounded Heart

Last year, I published a book called The Rescue You Program: How to Improve Your Life and Reinvent Your Love after an Affair, this being a personal experience for me. The affair in my marriage happened four years ago, but I can recall the emotional roller coaster I rode as if I was on it yesterday. The first chapter in my book, Shock and Circumstance, is led by this song lyric:

” . . . this sweet madness, oh this glorious sadness, that brings me to my knees.” –Angel by Sarah McLachlan

Oh, that song. It was in my ear often back then and it still showers peace over my heart when I hear it now. In the immediate aftermath of an affair, when you’ve realized that everything that was, isn’t, anymore . . . It’s tragic and there is grief. Since my own experience, I have learned to love grief. It is your body’s natural cleansing and it washes over you as you mourn the loss of something. It can be beautiful and transformational.

For several months after I published, I heard no reader feedback. My book still remains review-less on Amazon.com. I told myself, “No news is good news,” but frankly, I had no idea how people were feeling about The Rescue You Program. Until recently. Comments and emails started crawling in, and they’re coming from real-life readers in real-life situations.

When I receive a Rescue You reader comment, fireworks go off in my heart. I write back, saying more than I probably should. I tell them “great work,” and “what a traumatic time for you,” and “I’m so proud,” and “all the best.” But what I feel–what I’d say if it could get the whole message across would be:

I love you so much.

First of all, I’m thrilled and thankful that people read my book. That, in itself, fills my heart. However, the fact that these women contact me? Well, I’m honored beyond words. I often compare people who face difficult life struggles with  the caterpillar-butterfly transformation. Did you know that when a caterpillar enters a cocoon, it doesn’t simply sprout wings? Instead, the caterpillar dissolves into sticky liquid form and then rebuilds itself as a butterfly. I can close my eyes and know that feeling–that liquid form-feeling. It’s vulnerable, sweet, and the absolute truth.

When readers write to me, I know that in a matter of long months, or short years, they will hardly recognize that old, caterpillar-self of theirs. They’ll think, when I was a caterpillar, I never even knew butterflies existed! But the one thing us butterflies will never, ever forget? The sweet madness of our cocoon and the glorious sadness of the transformation.

Love . . . in liquid form.

I’m in Love! I’m in Love And I Don’t Care Who Knows It!

I apologize in advance for my gush-fest. I am now creating a new category for my sidebar called “Gemstones.” Listen, this is going to get ridiculous. Of course there have been other loves in my life: sunstone, labradorite, and jasper to name a few. I’ll never forget them. However, I just met Carnelian.

So beautiful

Oh, the things I'm going to do to you

This orange-red gemstone is not only beautiful, it’s a powerhouse–full of wonderful attributes. This stone was beloved by the Egyptians, as it was believed to assist the soul on its journey. It is worn to calm anger, jealousy, and envy. It helps stabilize high emotions and anchors the wearer into present reality. Carnelian is excellent for restoring vitality. It helps you to accept the cycle of living, release the fear of death, and make positive life choices. I like this stone for someone who wants to heal from betrayal, it allows you to trust yourself and your perceptions as you overcome negative conditioning.

Furthermore, Carnelian is a stone of abundance. It motivates you toward success in business, as well as other Life matters.

*sigh* Isn’t she lovely?

If you’re interested in my beauty, she does especially well for the following zodiac signs: Taurus, Cancer, Leo, and Scorpio. One of those is me! Carnelian and I are a match made in Heaven. Love Her!

New @ my Etsy Energy Shop
