Magic at the Markets

Fall time is craft market time. I love going to the markets to meet the local designers, while finding unique handcrafted items. Buying Christmas presents and supporting small businesses in my city. It's one of the reason I cherish this season so deeply.

While I mostly have an uplifting and high vibe experience at the markets, I sometimes find the crowds can be rather frustrating and draining. To remedy this, I have been focusing on slipping into alignment before and during the markets to experiment with the power of alignment before action. And it has been magical.

Rampage of Appreciation / Gratitude list

This weeks blog post is a rampage of appreciation in honour of Canadian Thanksgiving!

Rampages of appreciation (several pages of things you are grateful for or appreciate) are an amazing way to bring your vibration to a higher level. 

What I'm Thankful for (in no particular order)

Coincidence or subconscious? How our emotions impact our furry friends.

I have always been a big animal lover. As soon as I moved from an apartment to a house, I welcomed my first cat. Through the years my house has been a home for many cats and dogs in need. Some were in the twilight of their animal life and only stayed with me for a brief time while others were abandoned early on in their life, came to live with me when they were young and are still curled up next to me as I type.

When a new member joined the crew there was only a short period of acclimation before everything settled. Sure, Jace, the ginger cat, has never quite appreciated the enthusiasm of Charlie the pug but overall everyone was happy and healthy.

The beginning of this year was really rough on me. I felt lost and unsatisfied in life. I was searching for answers and it was accompanied with an anxiety that was overpowering. I was suddenly questioning everything in my life and secretly began to feel trapped caring for my fur babies. I still loved them the same but I felt like picking up and moving to another country. Escaping. Running away. But I couldn't because I was responsible for them.

7 tips to get your subconscious mind to work for you!

So you've watched the secret, or read about the law of attraction? You hear people talking about manifesting and making their dreams come true.  You think, hey if they can do it, so can I! Your biggest desire comes to mind and you set off on the path to bring it into your life. You cut out pictures of your dream car, you put it on your bulletin board and on the bathroom mirror. You start picturing yourself in your new car everyday and the desire becomes stronger. After a month your new car still hasn't arrived. You start wishing harder, more often. You're starting to wonder how your new car is going to come to you. The lottery? A raise at work? You start getting frustrated, feeling a little foolish and maybe even angry. You decide this new age stuff is a bunch of junk and you tear down the pictures from your wall, embarrassed you ever bought into the hype.

I thought the more energy I put into wanting something, the more I thought about how I was going to get it, the more likely I was to bring it into my reality. It didn't work very well. It was frustrating and I would stop trying. Then I picked up a book called The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy and everything changed. I began to understand that my lack of results came from trying to use my conscious mind to manifest, when the power has always been in my subconscious. This changed everything!

Meditation makes you attractive!

Want to lower your stress, increase your focus, improve your sleep, relieve pain and even become more attractive to others? Then meditation is definitely for you. But meditation is not a one size fits all practice. It's not all about clearing all your thoughts and ignoring that itch on your nose. There are many different types of meditation and it's important to experiment with different types before proclaiming that meditation just isn't for you.

Summer of healing

I started my journey to find joy, peace and enlightenment at the beginning of 2017 after a particularly dark spell of emotions hit me in December. Although the past year has been one of the most difficult ones of my life, I have nothing but gratitude for it. It motivated me to dig deep into the world of wellness and mental well being and what I have learnt has been truely life changing. I can't wait to share more of this journey with you!

This summer I have continued on my meditation practice, stepped out of my comfort zone in dating, decluttering and the way I view my mind. I dug deeper into researching emotions and thoughts while extending my understanding about the laws of attraction and the power of the subconscious mind. Stay tuned because this is still only the beginning!

3 ways to tell if it's your intuition or your ego talking

Follow your gut. The answer is within you. We've all heard this before. The problem is sometimes when we look within we get mixed messages. Should you take that new job opportunity? Something inside is saying yes but something else is saying hell no. This is the battle of your intuition vs your ego. If you listen carefully enough, you will begin to easily tease apart the two.

Changing your thoughts to create your ideal future (Brooke Castillo Model)

I have been on this spiritual journey since a very dark day in December. I attribute the teachings of Eckhart Tolle to my being able to dig myself out of a deep hole. Learning about the ego and the pain body changed my life. But living in the now is hard. At least it is for me. I am trying to reprogram years and years of a mindset that believes worrying about something will make me more prepared. So while Eckhart helped me climb out of the hole, I needed to find something that would help me with the re-programming of my mind.

The Law of Attraction has a funny sense of humour.

I'm not the kind of girl who turns heads. In fact, I go a very long time between getting hit on. So I thought it might be fun to spend a couple minutes a day in my creative workshop thinking about attracting attention from men. I didn't focus on it too hard, it was just one of a few things I would think about in my workshop.

During my day I have felt too busy rushing around to think about the Law of Attraction

Meditation is stressful

I started my wellness/spiritual journey with mindfulness meditation. I used guided audio meditation that had me perform body scans. You begin concentrating on the sensations in your feet. Feeling their aliveness. Then slowly move up until you have scanned your entire body. I tried morning meditation, midday meditation and evening meditation. The first and final often ending in a mini snooze. Oops. 

I understand it is called a meditation practice for a reason.
