Carol

Holistic Support In Uncertain Times

Carol was the neighborhood mom of my adolescence. Carol’s daughter, Marsha, and my younger sister were the best of friends. While in our youth we were not allies, as we grew into adulthood we grew closer.

I had peripherally understood that Carol had battled a few different types of cancer throughout her life. It’s unfair really, that anyone would have to face multiple cancer fights, but she was known as a fighter. Even in our youth, her warrior spirit was recognizable.

But there comes a day in every warrior’s life when the sword and shield get heavy and it is time to lay them down.

Carol was at peace with her decision to forego aggressive treatments. She was tired and just wanted to BE: BE with her family, BE in her home and to BE with her God.

Carol was at home with hospice care and as so often is the case of only daughters, Marsha was the caregiver of record.

Upon my arrival I found the energy of the house to be chaotic. This is not surprising as our society has created an atmosphere that treats death as a medical event, rather than a holistic experience. Often an individual internally senses when it is time to let go and accepts this new phase of their journey, but in an effort to ‘stay positive’ the family can pressure the patient to ‘not give up’. This fear-based disparity creates a chaotic energy in the environment.

Acceptance is a very different energy than giving up. Giving up is premature disengagement usually stemming from depression. Acceptance is completely different. Acceptance is no longer fighting against the tide, it is allowing peace to take the place of fear and standing in the love of those surrounding you. Acceptance transforms the scared energy into sacred energy.

Carol was in acceptance. Her daughter was in acceptance. The rest of the family, maybe not so much.

Acceptance became our first goal so sacred things could start to happen.

Families need permission to be ok with a patient’s decision. A simple “It’s ok” from someone with experience often opens up a floodgate of relief from self-imposed criticism.

I observed the family as it operated organically. I saw who was comfortable providing what, supported their strengths and nurtured their perceived weaknesses. I could identify small but significant shifts to facilitate the transition from crisis energy to sacred energy.

Once that happened, peace replaced the panic.

I watched as Marsha used the therapeutic ritual techniques I’d suggested to provide holistic support to her mother. Therapeutic ritual techniques not only provides practical emotional and spiritual comfort to the individual, but it also offers an outlet for the underlying helplessness caregivers experience while caring for a dying loved one.

I never orchestrate anything when I am providing holistic support. I aim to be non-invasive and wait for organic opportunities to facilitate sacred moments. When I was alone with Carol I offered spiritual and emotional support and encouragement. When I was alone with family members I listened to their deepest fear revealed and spoke to that.

You can’t know from one moment to the next what will be of significance so I am always looking for signs. While her son was catching me up on his life, I noticed a change in Carol’s face. I knew she was looking through the veil to the other side. She smiled, sighed and said ‘Ooohhh’. I encouraged her to share her vision. She said she saw so many colors. All kinds of colors. Colors she had never before seen. When I asked her what it felt like she said ‘Joy. It feels like joy.’

I saw the glow of her vision reflected on her face.

Carol died surrounded by her closest family members just three days later.

Providing holistic support to those facing a life limiting prognosis whether due to aging, trauma or disease is the greatest honor of my life. I understand the complicated struggle that happens along the journey between life and death. I am comfortable having the uncomfortable conversations and holding space so that families and individuals can find their own path, create their own memories and feel empowered in their own experience.

My greatest wish is to support more individuals and families in shifting from scared to sacred.

Beautiful – It’s Not What You Think

IMG_20170904_104700I love to do a good face mask. My favorite is Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay mask made from Calcium Bentonite Clay. I love it because I feel like it actually digs deep down and pulls stuff out of my pores and afterwards my skin glows. I find it an analogy for so many things. Digging the crap out of your internal psychoemotional pores and sloughing off the dead surface layer to allow the deeper radiance to shine through.

Its also an analogy for something else. As I endeavor to do more videos, I am more aware of my appearance and notice myself weighing this feature against another when setting things up. I often opt out of doing a video because I don’t feel like showering and putting on make up. As I looked into the mirror while putting on the mask and cherishing this moment of indulgence, it hit me.

Not all moments of beauty are beautiful.

To prove it, I took this picture. (This face never fails to make my hubby laugh.) Aside from that though it caused me to think about other non-beautiful moments of beauty. Pictures like that fireman carrying the child on 9/11, or childbirth, or a mother’s face just after giving birth as she holds her newborn all sweaty and fatigued.

But there are many many MANY more non-beautiful moments of beauty that we can’t take pictures of and might not even recognize as such. Moments of ferreting out those thoughts, beliefs and emotional patterns that don’t serve our spiritual destiny. Ugly stuff. It feels uncomfortable, awkward and sometimes seemingly painful, but in the end the beauty it creates in our lives is limitless. Without these non-beautiful moments of beauty we could not explore our true beauty.

Right now, I guarantee there are non-beautiful moments going on right now in your life that you can’t embrace for their hidden beauty. I know I have a shit-ton of them right now and I was completely overlooking them.

As a Intuitive Spiritual Transformation Facilitator I fall into the trap often of thinking I need to present a ‘perfect package’, like so many others do, to prove I’ve ‘made it’ and therefore worthy of getting paid to walk with others on their journey. Pfft, as if there were a landing space called ‘success’ in life! There are no landing places. This is a journey and there are hills, valleys, mountains, curves and steep grades, but no landing places. We stop to catch our breath then we keep moving. The only landing place is the present moment we are in. In each present moment there are gifts…some are beauties and some are uglies.

Instead of hiding mine, I’m going to share and I hope you will too. Getting the uglies out into the daylight can help us see their hidden beauty. Here we go…

These are the Uglies I can get caught up in: My husband had a brainstem stroke in January of this year. He is the bread winner of the family currently as I struggle to get my business going. My daughter has been in a dark place since her father died a year ago. I’m in court fighting his deathbed widow over my own retirement funds. As a result of a kylego I created, envisioned and organized an amazing two day transformational retreat/workshop. Despite my excitement and  forward feeling of achievement not one person has registered. My husband is in construction and we got stiffed just under $7,000 on a tiling job this month. Subsequently, our mortgage automatic payment bounced. I broke a tooth about a month ago and made arrangements to pay half at the first visit and half at the second visit to get it fixed. Because of being stiffed we didn’t have the resources to go back for the second visit.

Now here are the beauties that have shown up as a result: My husband’s recovery has been amazing. With a combination of mindset work and energy healing work he was the shortest stay in the rehab unit they have ever had. He went back to work the Monday after he was released, with caution. He was back to driving within months. The lasting effects are minimal and isolated mostly to short term memory loss and expressive communication. My daughter has moved back home to heal from her loss and has turned a corner in the darkness that grief can be. I just won an important appeal in my court case. Although right now no one else will experience my amazing retreat I have done some really phenomenal work creating interactive, reflective and transformative individual, paired and group exercises all ready and waiting to go for future retreats/workshops and client work. The best part is that I got to do that creating. The only thing I love more than creating transformative experiences is facilitating them for people. Despite getting stiffed on $7,000 worth of work, we kept the lights on. We didn’t miss the mortgage payment, because although the one contractor failed to pay, my hubby had secured another job. It was enough to cover that mortgage payment (the deposit was made hours after the automatic payment was kicked) as well as some other necessities.  My temporary crown is holding nicely and we shall soon have enough money for me to go back for the permanent one because work is lined up.

I can even go back further to three years ago when I quit my 28 year career to move across two states where we bought a house with no money and no credit; and when I had fibromyalgia and was living with an average daily pain of 7-8, to now when my average daily experience is a pain level 1 with no meds.

I could go back even further because at 53 I’ve come a long long way baby…but I won’t. 🙂

The point is we have a tendency at times to define our journeys by the distance we have yet to go, and by lamenting things that don’t show up the way we think they need to and thus overlooking the multitude of ways we manifest abundance and miracles. When you are stuck in “what am I doing wrong that I can’t manifest what I want” remember your ‘success’ is about the distance travelled not the distance yet to go…

*Please share your ‘uglies’ either in words or pictures below! Let’s all be real and share our non-beautiful moments of beauty with each other!

Is This You Or Someone You Know?

Does anyone ever feel like they’re just not meant for this life? I know how blessed I am. I live in a developed country, I have a family, friends, a house, animals who I adore and a job. Everything people who are less fortunate would die for. But I’m still not happy. I feel so forced. I just want to be running wild and free, a natural woman, with animals and living off the land. I don’t want the troubles of money, the social media, the modern life. Is that really even natural for humans? Is anyone really comfortable living like this or is it just something we have to accept because everyone else does. My head hurts because it just can’t cope with what society wants from me  ☹️” ~Woman A
“Im with you! Feels so pointless and empty at times. On my good days [I’m trying to] work towards a more fulfilling life but am not really sure how to get there or if its worth it etc etc. Its is society not us thats wrong, take each day as it comes is all you can do. Stay strong we will get there…x Woman B in response to woman A
“Can I ask for guidance again? My mother wasn’t the warmest individual growing up. She’s someone multiple therapists have told me to cut out of my life, even if it’s just until I’m stronger. I’ve gone through much of my adult life in an off and on relationship with her because of her controlling nature. When I was a child I was often compared to other children and asked why I can’t be like someone else’s kid or why their kid, who’s “slow” (her words, not mine) would be doing better than me. I was locked in closets, kicked out of the house at night, told she wished I wasn’t hers, which didn’t end until 7th grade…”~Woman C

Is this you or someone you know? This is just a sampling of what I’ve been hearing lately. We as woman have suffered under patriarchy. That is not a feminist or anti-masculine thing. We can only survive in a balanced society and this is NOT that!

This feeling, THIS longing, THIS UNSETTLING is why the Healing Rite of Passage was created. Men and woman are invited to join in the Feminine Rising that this will be. Its not male bashing and it isn’t ‘woman stuff’ it is just a connecting to the feminine yin energies that have been ignored for centuries now. We need to connect to Mother Earth AND Father Sky. To Grandmother Moon AND Grandfather Sun. We can ONLY be our highest selves, live the highest version of our lives and have the grandest experiences when we are balanced in masculine and feminine energies.

We HAVE to heal the wounds of the past that keep harming us. You don’t know how to ‘get there’ because no one taught you to look inside yourself. And you can’t do it with the eyes that society has taught you to look through. It has set you up to fail.

There is SO much you can do to get so much more out of life! I can help you unlearn everything you’ve learned that is actually getting in your way. You have to go deeper than just meditating and gratitude journalling. You have to unravel all the manipulative programming EGOS set in play. You have learn the truth about how the Universe works by understanding and working WITH (not against) the three Universal Laws and their seven principles.

Holistic Health Care

321264_258864004160106_138430183_n

Holistic PSA: I am a holistic practitioner. I do energy work and work of the soul because that is where dis-ease and dis-orders stem from.

There is more to health-care than allopathic intervention. The statement ”there is nothing more to do than symptom management” is the first true statement they can make. In chronic and some acute cases, all allopathic does really is manage symptoms. That is OK in the short term, but Holistic medicine, focuses on the root cause so that acute doesn’t become chronic…and in holistic intervention, there is no such thing as idiopathic.
Do you know what ‘idiopathic’ means? “Relating to or denoting any disease or condition that arises spontaneously or for which the cause is unknown.” So when you have a diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis you have a dis-ease in which tissue deep in your lungs becomes thick and stiff, or scarred, over time, and no one is concerned with addressing a cause…
About 3/4 of the way through writing this I turned on the DVR to have Adam Ruins everything on in the background. I didn’t know the topic of this episode. Guess what? Its about the allopathic healthcare system. Hello Universe! Thank you for providing me resources! Please take less than an hour of your life for education. Adam Ruins Everything: Hospitals
I highly recommend homeopathy, Chinese medicine, energy and soul work (ESPECIALLY for idiopathic and chronic diagnosis!)
You can harness your body’s natural healing power to overcome things that modern medicine has had no success in treating.
Not to mention preventing many of those dis-eases and dis-orders from even developing by exploring the soul, emotional or mental roots!
Energy and soul work can be done remotely, so no matter where you live, I can help. Also, my retreat-workshop Healing Rite of Passage would certainly be of benefit to you! We will be doing lots of healing!

A rite of passage, by definition, is a ceremony or event marking an important stage in someone’s life. If you are ready for the past to be the past, to release old relationships and wounds, or just take the opportunity to give your spirit the intensive care it needs, then reserve your spot in our Transformation Circle today.

Illness Is Your Soul’s Dis-Ease

don't compare memeIn 2009 I packed my, then 16 year old, daughter and moved out of my 20 year marriage. We moved in with a friend of mine, which did not turn out to be a healthy choice, and we moved yet again, 9 months later. After three years of separation, the divorce was finalized in January of 2012. 

In November of 2012, just six months into a new relationship, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. At its best it was unbearable, at its worst it was debilitating. I was working a 40 hour week as a social worker in a social service agency. A career I had been very very good at for 28 years. Some even said I was born to do it.  

Just like the marriage, the job/career no longer served me. They were both killing me.

I had ‘done everything right’, but it all ‘went wrong’. I tried to follow the standards that society set up for me: Go to college, establish yourself in a long-term career, get married/stay married, raise babies, secure a retirement fund and when you retire you can do all the things you dreamed.

In other words, be safe.

In June of 2013 my beloved and I took a three day vacation. It was 8 months after being diagnosed and I hadn’t had a day free of pain since before the diagnosis. We went deep into nature, a state park steeped in Native American history, lush with trees and running water. I was absolutely pain free for those three days. No electronics. No work. Hiking, eating, walking and napping.

Pain free.

That was my first clue that my illness was not physical at all, but spiritual.

A year later I quit my job, retired from social work and moved across two states to live with my beloved in a new area with lots of trees and water. That was three years ago. 

I KNOW now my dis-order was my soul growling, shedding, cracking and splitting up to the surface through the depths of illusion and facade that my ego (earth generated operating-system) had created. My soul was trying to reveal itself and my resistance to it was causing me pain. My life was literally making me sick.

In the three years since, I’ve published my first book, Strongest In Our Broken Places, married my beloved, stepped onto my path as a transformation facilitator and and am fully embracing my calling as a mentor, guide, companion, intuitive, healer, author, transformation workshop leader and medicine woman.  

Three years after beginning to live from my soul, I manage my physical condition without any pharmaceuticals. I tried them early on, but they made me feel so gross. I’ve travelled a path of natural remedies to get to this point now. I take a few natural supplements, receive torque technique chiropractic care, do QiGong daily, connect with nature daily and occasionally take over the counter pain relievers as necessary. The most important thing I do though, is live a soul-directed life. A life that feeds my soul. Finding THAT has been the single most important intervention in remedying my soul’s dis-ease. Today my pain free days outnumber my pain filled ones at least two to one. And when I feel that fibro pain, I know its because I’ve allowed myself to get away from my soul calling the shots.

Illness is not coincidence. It is a message from your soul. Its trying to tell you something is amiss and if you’ve been ignoring that message then it will begin to affect your physical health by way of dis-ease and dis-order. Listening to your soul is the single most important thing you can do for yourself, your loved ones, your health and the world. Anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, CFS, bi-polar disorder, idiopathic anything etc…these are just a few of the many methods our souls use to communicate.

If you are ill, listen carefully to that message and if you need help translating it, seek out assistance from a holistic practitioner that resonates with you and always coordinate complementary care with your allopathic physician.

Please Don’t Call Me Your Coach

I have an aversion to the title ‘Coach’. I toyed with it for awhile; life coach, transformational coach, spiritual coach, life advisor, spiritual advisor, etc. I cringe every time someone refers to me as their coach…and I REALLY cringe when someone tells me “every coach needs a coach” implying I needed to hire a coach.

NO WAY!

I have nothing against coaches. I actually endeavored to be a coach for a very long long time. At some point through that endeavor however, ‘coach’ no longer felt the way it used to. That feeling is what led me to identify as a Medicine Woman.

There is absolutely a place for coaches. A big wonderful lovely world for coaching, but, coaching no longer fits my soul. Not even a tiny little bit. There is no place for me in coaching.

I am a facilitator holding space for others to explore their sacredness. I don’t wish to coach, but holding space? Yes, holding space I can do for anyone and I definitely need people to hold space for me!

Holding space affords the opportunity for things to flow without rush or agenda. To pull from the murky depths of unconsciousness the golden nuggets of your truth. To be present and allow Spirit to flow through me to express whatever it needs to express, and to be present while it expresses through you whatever it needs to express.

Holding space is about the most honorable and sacred thing I can offer anyone. To hold space for their wounds to heal, their dreams to be born, their relationships to transcend and their spirits to ascend.

It’s sacred and I can’t think of anything better to do with my life!

You Get What You Give…Or Do You?

If its true that you get what you give, why do some not get what they expect?

If what you are getting , is not what you think you are giving ,then you need to take a look at what you truly are giving. Odds are it isn’t what you thought.

“But Jade, I am giving and loving. I try to help everyone, but when I need people they are never there for me.”

Being giving and loving are both great characteristics, however the intentions behind that can alter the energy of the experience. When we give with the expectation of receiving love  in exchange, the intentions are not authentic and the dynamic is skewed. We are in fact, attempting emotional extortion. When this happens, because we have aligned ourselves with takers we don’t actually receive the love we were seeking; instead we just end up in a cycle of endless giving. We give, they take and we receive nothing in return.

The key to getting what we give, is to give in a healthy manner. Give to those who freely give to you in return. Establish boundaries, guidelines and limits then enforce them and live by them.

“Jade I do affirmations, I visualize and I think positive, why don’t I have what I want?”

This is a good question. If you are self-aware, but don’t have what you want there are a few things that could be going on; 1) Divine Timing, 2)  underlying sabotaging beliefs, 3) lessons in the making.

Divine Timing is the choreography of the Universe. There are certain events and achievements that the Universe has decided need to present themselves in your life at a certain time. There is nothing you can do to rush that. You can do things and NOT do things to push it off, but you can’t bring desired results faster than that pre-determined choreographed dance by the Universe. So if you truly are doing everything you know to do to bring about your highest good, then trust that and know that its just Divine Timing and you can wait it out.

Sabotaging beliefs can be counteracting your good work. While you THINK you are putting out positive energy, those underlying negative beliefs are negating your efforts. A very powerful one for instance, is “its better to give than to receive.” Can you see how this is a problem?

The deep belief is that it is better to give than to receive and so you create that experience over and over…you give but do not receive, because you believe that to be better, right? But how? Why? That belief has set up an energy block, so the things that the Universe sends you, you send away. Sometimes that shows up with a ‘too good to be true’ thought. Other times it is so automatic you don’t even see the opportunity. You just keep making decisions that keep you in the status quo.

Lessons in the making is self-explanatory. Right here, right now, in this moment you are gleaning valuable wisdom/experience necessary for your highest good. There is value in it and until you can find the treasure you will remain in this experience.

Its not always easy to discover these things on your own, so invest in yourself by engaging in a healing session and metaphysical counseling. Just hit the contact button to schedule your first appointment.

Celestial Fire, Divine Timing and Sorting Shit from Sage…

These are three messages that have been coming up in the past few days.

Celestial Fire: a period of time when the Universe is asking you to forge your spiritual self.

Divine Timing: nothing can come to you before it is in your highest good.

Sorting Sage from Shit: Once you’re done being forged in the fire and it is TIME you need to sort shit from sage to move on to the next phase.

Celestial Fire

The energy of this time is a turbo boost of spiritual growth and that growth usually takes place in the form of Celestial Fire. Celestial Fire turns up the heat and invites your highest best self to come forward to be forged. Like metal is forged in fire so too are we. It is when Life turns it on high that we really have to decide on the answer to ‘who am I?’

Am I someone who falls down and stays down? Am I someone who falls down, gets up and relives the falling down? Am I someone who falls down, gets up and no one ever knew I fell down? Or am I someone who falls down, gets up and no one knows I fell down until/unless it is important for them to know I fell down? Or a million other scenarios.

I, for one, never pretend I haven’t fallen down, yet telling my falling down stories is not something I lead with either. That’s who I am. Yet, there is value in vulnerability and truth in transparency, so recently I started a blog dedicated to our journey through stroke recovery. So far it has been well received. (ourstrokeofluckblog.wordpress.com)

What isn’t burning away in the Celestial Fire is being made stronger. It isn’t about being punished as some belief. It isn’t even necessarily ‘karma’ coming back to bite you! Well, sometimes it is, but even when that is true, it is still for your highest good to get you to see the value in yourself. The strength inside you. The HOOTSPA that is innately you. That stuff doesn’t come out until you are against the ropes.

You can’t really see what you are made of until all the fluff you’ve padded yourself with burns away…

Divine Timing

This makes way for what is in our highest good to come forth in Divine Timing. I feel like I talk about this all the time and yet never say all there is to say about it. The best analogy I have for it is baking a cake. You can gather all the ingredients, mix them up just right and it still isn’t cake until it spends some TIME in the oven.

So too is it in our lives. Just because we have shifted our mindset, begun doing rituals and chants and our new moon checks doesn’t mean when we blink our eyes our manifestations will appear. Some things take time in the oven. Some things just aren’t ready to come out of the gate yet. Some things have to be delivered at a precise moment or everything is thrown off. Ah, yes I’ve mixed my metaphors but that just goes to show you its more than just baking a cake after all! lol

The key to Divine Timing then is to be your highest best self so that what is for your highest best self can be delivered at its earliest point possible.

 

Sorting Sage from Shit

Last but not least is Sorting Sage from Shit. This refers to the psycho-emotional programs running that serve you well (sage) or do not serve you at all(shit). Its time to let go of the things that hold you back. How many times have you heard that? If you knew what was holding you back wouldn’t you have let go of it by now? Or at least you would if you knew how…

Agreed, but that’s why this is so important after the period of Celestial Fire. Celestial Fire is  the perfect time to really test what relieves the burn and what fuels it.  Does not getting out of bed get me to the next level? Does feeling sorry for myself and waiting for someone to rescue me, define my highest best self? WHO am I? Sorting shit from sage is when we truly answer that question.

Its like a hoarder going through their house item by item…’am I taking this forward with me or does it hold me back?’

We have to look at every single thought we have about things and determine if it is some shit we were force fed as we were growing up or is it sage advice we need to pay more heed to. If you’ve watched the hoarders show, you know it is impossible to do this without some sort of help. This is when a Medicine Woman comes in handy…now if only you knew where to find one? 😉

Yes, shameless self-promotion, but really you don’t have to do this alone. Have you tried getting ready in the morning for work without a mirror? Chances are you’d end up looking in some surface for any reflection of the image you are presenting the world, to at least make sure you didn’t have a conspicuous booger. I’m willing to point out your boogers BEFORE they become conspicuous!

I may now have said all that needs to be said about Divine Timing, but I certainly have not about Celestial Fire and Sorting Sage from Shit, so look forward to some videos on our facebook page and in our groups on these topics soon!

 

It is NOT better to give than to receive and here’s why…

As children we are taught that it is better to give than to receive

and as we grow older we realize there is indeed a gift in being the giver instead of just the receiver. This tends to validate the idiom “it’s better to give than to receive.”

But it’s a false positive.

A false positive is a seeming confirmation of a theory. Evidence that SEEMS to support a false or incomplete statement or belief.

Tis better to give than to receive is one of those false or incomplete statements or beliefs.

For someone who has received everything they needed, it feels really great to begin to give. A child, for instance, who grew up in a loving nurturing environment and is finally able to give gifts back to his or her parents feels a different satisfaction of giving gifts rather than just receiving them.

This is evidence of a self-actualized individual who is now ready to participate in the give and receive flow of life. You know the saying that you must fill your own cup to be able to give drink to another, right? You must have a well to draw from.

Instead, many grow up being told ‘its better to give than to receive’ by some adult who didn’t have their own well filled and selfishly continued the cycle. Thus, this child believes that ‘if I give then someone will give to me.’ That expectation is what causes the entire dynamic to implode. You can’t have expectations, much less ulterior motives, when you give.

The ‘blessing’ of giving is that it is a natural outcome of having received enough. 

EVERYTHING, and I do mean everything, requires balance. We cannot give UNLESS we receive. It is noted in nature everywhere. Too much sun is a drought. Too much rain is a flood. A nice balance is a thriving community.

Try just exhaling and never inhaling.

All of our life is designed to be like breathing. In and out. Give and receive. We need to give as much as we receive, and receive as much as we give. There must be a balance else we set up a block.

Many struggle with the concept of manifesting and they chase Law of Attraction programs, movies and literature one after another. However, if you have the basic premise that it is better to give than to receive, then no amount of ‘mindset’ work will work. You are giving the Universe mixed messages and when confused (and I use that tongue in cheek) the Universe will defer to the strongest vibration. The strongest vibration is the one most deeply rooted. (This is not always the ones programmed in your childhood, but often times the ones rooted through deep emotional trauma as well.)

You can be too focused on “what am I putting ‘out there’?” that you don’t focus on what you are not allowing ‘in here’. Understanding that is the difference between living the life you love and chasing the life you’d love to have.

Until you are willing to receive back all you give out, you will be denying what is inherently your birthright.

Divine Timing

Divine Timing

It’s always in play. Sometimes we wonder if what we want will ever come. Other times we wonder if what we want to end, will ever end. Still other times we wonder if what we want is happening too fast and if we truly deserve it or can handle it.

Notice the pattern? No matter what we are questioning the Divine Timing of the Universe.

Yet, it is the one thing we can be sure of.

Divine Timing.

The Universe is always conspiring on our behalf. It responds to our vibrations, the higher our vibrations (spiritually, emotionally and mentally), higher vibrational events occur.

When something happens and we say “why now?” we have to know that exactly now is when it HAD to happen. It isn’t so imperative to try to figure out why, but to trust that it is.

To believe that this very moment has been dedicated to your Highest Good. To developing yourself into the highest version of yourself that is possible. That this very moment is a brick in the building of your Life.

The question is, will it be of solid material or will it crack under pressure?

Tomorrow will depend on it…

Divine Timing.

Right now. Right here. We are being asked something and we must ask ‘what?’ Sit quiet. Listen to what your guides, your higher power, the universe, your god, etc… is saying. The message is there, it is for us to listen.

Listen, but also know that everything happens exactly the way it needs to exactly when it needs to.

Much love,
~Jaide
