Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams: who looks inside, awakes. Carl Jung
When was the last time you felt young, free and really alive? You know that child like feeling of endless energy and boundless enthusiasm. What happens to our joy and playful spirit as we age? When we are kids our souls are full of innocence. We were able to connect to our inner light and allow it shine until it got dulled, darkened and dampened by the pressures of life. Our roles got in the way and we forgot that we are souls.
The culture we live in supports our addiction to the outside world and does not promote soul searching. I know that I started looking inward when there was a crisis in my life. I realized that nothing in this world would fill the hole I had in my soul. The only way was inward. There I discovered, uncovered and recovered my connection to spirit and embraced the truth of who I am, a beautiful soul! All addiction, trauma, anxiety, depression and dis-ease is a disconnect from your soul. To reclaim it, takes time, commitment and a daily practice to spiritual principles.
Isn’t it time you reconnect to your soul? Allow me to shine some light on your path.

Persistence is the key ingredient in achieving anything you desire from life. It is holding to a course of continued action, belief, and purpose without giving in or giving up. Napoleon Hill wrote in his book Think and Grow Rich, “There may be no heroic connotation to the word persistence, but the quality is to a person’s character what carbon is to steel.” Persistence is a habit that will begin to cultivate, when you realize your life’s purpose, have a strong desire, and strengthen your will. Set goals for yourself and follow through on them.
Nothing worthwhile in life comes without struggles to overcome. There are no cheap goods in the heavenly market, and everything worth having is expensive. Surround yourself with people who will lift you up, and are pursuing their own dreams, have faith and take action every day toward your dream. The opposite of persistence is procrastination, this is truly an enemy. It will keep you stuck, weak and create all kinds of excuses why you can not accomplish something. Face yourself honestly and openly, challenge yourself, to overcome this habit. Believe in yourself and know that you can not fail if you persist, and move in the direction of your dream. For every failure brings with it the seed of an equivalent success.
The philosopher Henry David Thoreau quoted “If you advance confidently in the direction of your dream, and live the life you can image, you will meet with success, unexpected in common hours.” Go live your dream.

To Many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears!
What stops us from living full out and taking the plunge into a joy filled life? Why do so many people get stuck in the muck of the ordinary? I know it is fear! I know how fear can hold us back from living our dreams. Little by little fear can creep in through a thought, through someones criticism, through a disappointment, through a seeming crisis or any other devious way fear knocks on our door. If we let it in, it will reek havoc and quickly destroy all the good that is there waiting to be released. I have had many such experiences, which started very early in my life. Both my parents had many fears that got downloaded into my mind-body. As an adult I realized how these fears were preventing me from living my dreams. So I took an inventory of what I thought was keeping me from a joy filled life. I decided to acknowledge the fear, thanked it for showing up to try and keep me safe, and started to live my dreams.
Does fear still try to knock down the door, you bet! Every time it does, my faith gets stronger and I do something that scares me. It’s time you start living your dreams instead of living your fears.
Do 1 thing every day that challenges you. Every time you do, you will get more confident and the next time when fear knocks on your door and faith answers, no one will be there.
Need help in conquering your fears, call Monica today.

Sometimes I hear people say they are bored. I know I have heard children say this, and I believe they need guidance, direction, and education to understand that there are many subjects they can get interested in. As parents, teachers, and guides we are here to direct them to their interests. Once they acquire the passion for learning and improving themselves, they will have no need to prove themselves. When you try to prove yourself worthy, you are missing out on improving yourself. You become outwardly directed and begin to compete against yourself. That’s what bullying is. They want to prove themselves rather that improve themselves. The secret is to improve yourself, and grow into all you can be. Everything is inside you waiting to be discovered. Your dreams, passions, gifts, and creative genius, is all inside you. When you begin to become a never, ending learner, you awaken to these miracles. All it takes is a shift in consciousness to see it this way. It is time for all of us to improve ourselves. To teach our children to live together peacefully in this world by focusing on how we can grow, change, and improve ourselves.
