Keep it Simple

January 19, 2021

Lately, I’ve been in a contemplative state of mind. I am lost for Words to express what I feel about the state of my country and the world. So, I’m giving myself the time and space to reflect. I have been in an observational and reflective mind-set. I am taking extra good care of my emotional, physical, mental and spiritual self.When I came across these words, they resonated with how I want to live my life. So very simple, yet so profound. I hope you too can find comfort in them.

Charlie Chaplin lived 88 years
He left us 4 statements:

(1) Nothing is forever in this world, not even our problems.

(2) I love walking in the rain because no one can see my tears.

(3) The most lost day in life is the day we don’t laugh.

(4) Six best doctors in the world:

1. The sun

2. Rest

3. Exercise

4. Diet

5. Self-respect

6. Friends

Stick to them at all stages of your life and enjoy a healthy life. If you see the moon, you will see the beauty of God. If you see the sun, you will see the power of God. If you see a mirror, you will see God’s best creation. So believe it. We are all tourists, God is our travel agent who has already identified our routes, bookings and destinations… trust Him and enjoy life. Life is just a journey…Therefore, live today! Tomorrow may never be. 

With Much Love & Gratitude,

Monica


The Great Awakening

December 31, 2020

We all have gone through some major changes since the beginning of 2020. So many adjustments, changes, revaluations, and patience were required to navigate through these uncertain times. As you reflect, what have you discovered about yourself that you weren’t aware of before? Did you take the time to learn any thing new? If not, now is the perfect time to go on a deep dive to applying, understanding and studying the principles of life that will surely wake you, shake you and take you on the ride of your life for 2021!

There is something mysterious and magical that happens when you finally are ready to free your mind, heart, and spirit. When you say YES to you and begin believing in yourself.

Here are seven questions to ask yourself this New Year, that I received from one of my mentors.

1-What do you hope for this coming year that is different from other years?

2-How do you want to improve your life this year?

3-What do you want to contribute to your community to make it a better place?

4-How do you want to be different by the end of the year?

5-Whose life do you want to improve and how will you do that?

6-What changes are unfolding in your life that you need to cooperate with and what does that mean?

7-In what ways or ways do you want to deepen your spiritual life?

Take some time to contemplate your answers and hold them near and dear to your heart to raise your vibration.

And most of all, remember to play, dance and sing every day!

Wishing you and your family a happy, healthy, and peaceful New Year!


You’ve Got to Feel to Heal

December 2, 2020

All great changes are proceeded by chaos.

Deepak Chopra

There is no denying that the world is in crisis. I feel that everyone is feeling the effects that have shifted how we are living our lives.

What are you yearning for? What is it that you feel is missing? What do you believe has been taken away from your life? How can we change? How has our social systems kept us from reaching our full potential? The paradigms that have been controlling every aspect of how we live our lives are crumbling before our eyes. We are being stripped down to the very core of our being, to reexamine what we truly value. It is like being an addict hitting rock bottom. I believe collectively that is what we are going through. Until we face and feel our pain, hurt, fears, insecurities, guilt, and shame, we will continue to suffer and create the delusion of stability. What might you be addicted to? A position, power, fam, money, food, material objects, sex, drugs, alcohol, work, a relationship, your phone, TV, gambling, shopping, stinken thinking or what is referred to as the ism’s. How can we give the world our best when we have become numb to ourselves? In the book The Paradigm Conspiracy the authors write “ The call to name addiction as addictions, pain as pain, system craziness as system craziness, and the control paradigm as soul-violating is according to wisdom teachings, the wake-up call from our souls.”

The First Step is admitting we are in pain.

The Second Step is waking up to your souls calling and

The Third Step is reclaiming your innate creative powers.

Through this process we withdraw our commitment to a paradigm that is not working and start evolving a new one. The word conspire comes from conspirare, which means to “breath together”.  A cultural paradigm begins with each person stepping out of the old and breathing something new.

You are more than just your physical body. You are a part of the collective whole. To paraphrase Claude Levi-Strauss, we are the universe coming together in a unique way so that transforming experiences can happen. If we don’t live our souls, what could have happened doesn’t.

A poem from Rumi:

This is how a human being can change:

There’s a worm addicted to eating grape leaves.

Suddenly, he wakes up,

Call it Grace, whatever, something wakes him, and he’s no longer a worm

He’s the entire vineyard,

And the orchard too, the fruit, the trunks, a growing wisdom and joy,

That doesn’t need to devour.”


Come Over to the Wild Side

October 15, 2020

“Hard Times Requires Furious Dancing”

Alice Walker

Some people have decided to buckle up for safety because life has become bumpy. The ride has been quite wild the last eight or more months. So much uncertainty. So much unpredictability. I can certainly understand people wanting to hold tight, protect and keep safe from a world that seems to be so out of control. That is not what my gut is telling me. My intuition is calling me to let lose and let my wild side out. To dance furiously and unleash my passion. Sometimes I want to scream out loud, to laugh wildly, to love passionately and play childishly.

My body longs for movement. My soul cries out for freedom. My spirit is searching for peace. All around me I see people wanting to hold on to security. To look for the familiar. But we must dance furiously until we create a new pattern. A new dance. Let go……..

Allow yourself to embrace the uncertainty with faith and courage. Take a trip of your mind and explore all the places that have kept you imprisoned in your own beliefs. The secret things that you keep tucked away. Even you think you can fool yourself. Loss yourself to yourself. That is where you will find yourself. The hippies of yesterday had it right. Make love not war. My hippy heart wants to move forward with creating and exploring new possibilities with the wisdom of the ancient ancestors of the past. Let’s dance wildly and furiously. Let’s get into a frenzy to rearrange, derange, and interchange the addictive patterns that have our culture crippled and trapped in conformity. The way out is the way in.


Hoo Hoo Hoo Tis the Season!

Paragraph

“When the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught, the last river poisoned, only then will we realize that one cannot eat money.”

Cree Indian Wisdom

Hoo Hoo Hoo, Tis the season! As I watch television it seems like every commercial is about shopping and buying. Sales, specials and bargains are every where!  Every year the commercialism seems to get more and more frenzied. What is it that we yearn for? Is it really more stuff? I mean, I like nice things but the older I get the less stuff I really want. I really love connecting with people. I love sharing ideas. I love good stories. How much money do we need to feel secure? We can’t eat money  If we took the time to educate, empower,reward and train people we would have a stronger and healthier economy. Our economy would be healthier if we invested in educating the people. Our planet is not doing well. She is melting, burning, choking and suffocating. This is our home. Our earth and our heart. They are one and the same.

As we get closer to the holidays, why not forfeit gift giving with relationship building. Invest in giving away things, invest in healthy conversations, and invest in supporting a cause. Things that will last and pays dividends over and over. Let’s return to our hearts to heal the earth.

“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”

Albert Einstein

If there is one constant in life it is change. This is good news because if you aren’t happy with any part of your life, you can change it. In order to change your personal reality, you must change your personality. In order to change your personality, you must change the conversation you are having with yourself. We live in a river of change and everything is connected. Our six hundred trillion cells are self-regulating themselves every second of every day.  You are not the same person you were yesterday. When your cells are in harmonious communication with each other you experience homeostasis. When they’re not you experience some sort of emotional and or physical pain. This all stems from resistance to change.

It takes courage to change. To transform our words, thinking, habits and  patterns takes a conscious awareness. But if we don’t, we become rigid, and if we become too rigid, we will collapse. Staying open to change is staying open to possibilities. When we can communicate with ourselves and each other in a healthy way, we can create the life we truly want. Our words have incredible energy behind them. They resonate in our bodies and send out a ripple vibration into the world. Words create worlds. Use them wisely.

 

 


Stressed to Blessed

February 19, 2019

One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse master. “Its not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it.”

Stress, it is simply unavoidable, right? I mean it seems like every day there is something that can take you on a journey that disrupts your serenity. Just yesterday, I was working on a power point presentation for a client who needed to insert some videos into it. Now I don’t normally do this sort of thing, however, I thought I would help him out. Yikes, it took me on a road to oblivion, but, I did get it done. Then, I came home to find that my older daughter didn’t clean out the garage like she promised. At this point, I needed to take some deep breaths take a walk, and shake of the frustration of the day. Whew, some days are like this.

 

What takes you over the edge? I know when I get stressed, the best thing for me to do is to do something physical to release the tension in my body, because it becomes physiological. In other words, my bodies functions get compromised and it goes into survival mode, changing the way my organs & cells respond.  It does this so fast that if I don’t change my energy, over time, this can become a repetitive pattern causing all sorts of negative reaction to occur.

So, take a walk, go to a yoga class, dance or take a bike ride. Find something that brings joy to your day.Change the energy before it gets locked into your physiology. Go from stressed to blessed, it feels so much better!


Seek and Destroy

June 7, 2018
6 months into the year! Have you reached your goals? Have you lost the weight or given up those negative habits you set out to do on the 1st of the year? If not, what’s holding you back?
Are subconscious beliefs sabotaging your personal power? If you got more “I can’t” than “I can” messages as a child, you are probably having more “I can’t” than “I can” experiences as an adult. In other words, if you heard messages from parents and other authority figures that told you that your opinion didn’t count and that your actions didn’t matter, you are likely to have subconscious beliefs that mirror those ideas. The result is often a person with deep insecurities about their ability to positively affect the course of their lives. Some people overcompensate for this feeling of powerlessness by making a career out of becoming powerful. Usually this sense of power is achieved by acquiring money, possessions and social status.
Unfortunately, these external signs of power seldom satisfy the gnawing feeling of insecurity and powerlessness within. Anger,procrastination or  any negative behavior are signs that you are sabotaging your personal power.  People with authentic power can have an abundance of money, possessions and social status, but their personal power does not come from the things they have, but rather from who they are.

Sample Beliefs:

  • I trust the decisions I make.
  • I trust the Divine guidance I am receiving.
  • I acknowledge my ability and responsibility to make a positive difference in the world.
  • I actively embrace the opportunities that come with change.
  • I am true to my personal vision.
  • I am willing to take the risks necessary to live my life openly and honestly.
  • I give myself permission to do what I love.
So if you’re ready to get to the next level of greatness and change those behaviors that are not serving you, let’s have a conversation.
The quality of your culture depends on the quality of your relationships, which depend on the quality of your conversations.

Step To The Edge

January 11, 2018

“If your not living your life on the edge, your taking up way too much room.”     Bob Proctor

Wow, when I first heard that statement, it was so powerful that it rocked my world!

I thought to myself, could I have that much faith?  Could I be so bold and start doing the things that I really desire? Could I live the life that I dream about? Well the first thing I had to do is say YES!  To risk playing it safe and go for it. To get uncomfortable is something I have been doing, however this year I want to step it up.  I decided that 2018 is going to be the year that I really step into my greatness. I am working on a song about awakening the spirit within, which I know is going to be a world wide hit. I just booked a trip to India to celebrate the grand opening of a school for orphaned children and homeless women, in which I donated a large sum of money to and am leaving for Australia at the end of the month to host a playshop. I am also going to California in February for another one. This is just the beginning of the most exiting and fabulous journey!

So my question to you is, what are you going to do to step out and live on your edge? Are you ready to live your best life? Are you ready to step into your greatness? It is inside of you! All you have to do is say YES!

I could never have done this alone. I had coaches there to support me and still do. So let’s talk about YOU! Isn’t it time you took the next step to the edge? Let’s talk, I am here to assist. NOW, is your time!!!
