My blog contains insights I’ve gained along The Path to My Heartwhich I hope will be of benefit to you. It’s a continuation of the story in my book which lives on in my experiences as a timeline of sorts that moves and grows with me.
It’s also a place for me to share my experiences with healing negative beliefs, ending vicious cycles, facing fear and allowing negative emotions to surface without judgment on my path to achieving wholeness. Please join me if you are interested in finding your own truth and a possibility for lasting healing!
It’s possible for you to live your life:
filled with possibility
free from negative thinking
with true choice
WARNING: There is no pill to wipe away sorrow or heal repeating vicious patterns in our lives. No magician can rid us of negative beliefs or dark emotions. It’s just not possible to wish these things away. We can intend and have a willingness – these both work in getting us started into making lasting changes, changes for a more fulfilling life.
I will also be referring to and quoting information from my own Resources as they have contributed greatly to my awakening!
Please only take what resonates and disregard the rest.
That’s exactly what I did. I’ve been writing blog posts for 3 years fairly consistently up until almost a year ago. I felt like I wrote all I could at the time so I took a break. My posts consist mainly of my own personal growth experiences. I love to share what I’ve learned with others to help them along on their journey. That was the point of my blog.
Recently I had the idea of arranging my posts into a book. I’ve heard it done before and thought, maybe I could use it as a marketing tool (magnet), like a freebie offer to get email addresses for more blog traffic. I started to make a document and things progressed, I thought – just turn it into a real book! The information I provide on my blog is valuable and could really help people. I had to accept the value of my information.
The information in my book, as I mentioned, is from my posts over the years. I polished them all up, made a logical sequence for them, and added things like homework and ideas for journaling. It’s a very powerful guide to healing the vicious cycles and living free from the past into a future created by you!
I self-published it and have it available now on Amazon. My first book, The Path to my Heart is also self-published. It’s quite easy to do and costs literally next to nothing. Amazon has ‘Print-on-Demand’ so you don’t need to order 3,000 copies at a time from a printer! Saves lots of space in the living room! You can buy your own ISBN numbers or get one from Amazon. If it’s an eBook you want to publish, Amazon provides the ISBN for free.
I made the cover on Canva. I found a wonderful licence-free photograph on line and thought – wow, that’s beautiful and needs a book! It’s really how this all started! The whole process took me about 3 weeks of steady work. I copied and pasted my posts onto MS Word and then did all the arranging, formatting and editing. Once the manuscript is completed, I exported it as pdf which is the best way to upload it onto Amazon for a print book.
There’s lots of tools and tricks of the trade available if this is something you’ve been thinking about doing. Like I said, I’ve self-published both of my books now and it’s really quite easy and cheap to get a very nice looking book. If you’re interested and have questions, please let me know in the comments and I’d be happy to share some resources with you!
If you haven’t heard of Florence Scovel Shinn, well there’s no time like the present. She’s an avatar who was born in 1871 and her affirmations are timely and ‘work a treat’ when felt to ‘click in’ with the person stating them. The ‘click’ is an actual physical feeling as worry and fear leave the consciousness. Very powerful indeed.
A blog post I wrote a while back that seems to have some pertinence today. I woke up with this in mind. Suppression of humanity is a real thing if we allow it, and unless each and every one of us can find a way out of that suppression, specifically held within the mind – we are destined to live without freedom. A self-imposed prison if you will. It’s been a life long lesson for me and apparently coming up for another round.
I have been asking myself lately: What does freedom look like in my life? How would I know if I were free? And, Why is freedom so important to me? In the past, I associated freedom with the physical, through my body. Running has always felt like freedom to me, however there have been few times in my life that my body actually felt the ease of running. What does physical freedom really feel like then? But what about emotional freedom or spiritual freedom? Have I ever experienced these freedoms?
As Above, So Below. My soul is Ready to Break Free!
I have been confronted recently with the implications of continuing to live day-to-day from my very limited self-imposed slave mentality. I look back and see it’s prevalence, to the point of believing now that my soul’s mission is to understand and experience true freedom. It feels…
I have lots of experience with surrendering. Actually, to be more truthful, I’ve had lots of experiences not surrendering and using my will-power to bully on through, beyond where stopping, or at least slowing down would’ve been a better option. Using my will-power to push past where I’m meant to go, is very tiring and futile. It’s also painful. Continue reading “Surrender – it Works, Don’t – it Won’t”
It’s taken me forever to write another blog post simply because I really get that no two people are the same!! I knew this but it felt nebulous, or casual in a way. How can I write posts about growing spiritually if we are all different? The guidance I give is based on my personal experience and will be true for some people but not for all. No information or way of living will ever apply to everyone, and yet there is a great assumption out there that it will.
I am unique. You are unique. Pretty basic stuff right? But we judge ourselves and we judge others – all for our differences. We forget the fact that no two of us are alike, no two designs are the same. I bet if we were to place each one of us side by side – we’d create an amazing puzzle that interlocked perfectly. Continue reading “You are You, end of Story”
Beware of the sinister, slimy agenda that is methodically and cleverly eliminating individuality and corralling us all into groups. It’s out there and it’s happening right under our noses. Individuality is going extinct. Watch and listen – people are being categorized all the time. The individual is a dying species. Continue reading “Getting Awake and Wise to Keep Your Individuality”
I’ve been doing a lot of digging lately, really deep digging inside my being, getting into the nooks and crannies – the places where I’m still feeling unrest – in order to finally be at peace with it all. How many times have I been down this road? This time, I found some real gems and wanted to share one of them with you.Continue reading “Self-Love – Fact or Fiction, Exposing the Dam Lies”
I was at my wits end trying to sink my teeth into a pressing life pattern in order to take a huge bite out of it. I finally did nail it, but it took a lot of digging. In doing so, I came to realize that the beliefs, emotions and feelings I experienced are very old – way before this lifetime. Continue reading “Lifting High Enough to Get the Big Picture”
Sometimes getting back to the essentials and basics is important. I find I need to stop all “input” once in a while because it only adds to any frustration I may be experiencing if I’ve let things build up too long. If I can’t get quiet to hear my own thoughts or feel my heart – it’s time to take a break. Continue reading “20 Essentials That Will Make Your Busy Life Easier”
Listening is a skill most people believe they have – but in all probability – they don’t. I would even go so far as to say the art of listening is rare. Look back for a minute – how many times have you been genuinely heard? Most likely it’s a very low number – unless you are fortunate enough to have a good listener in your life which is a true gift!
Lately people have come into my awareness who fear public speaking. I can remember back when I had that same fear but was cured of it when the “meeting binder” was literally tossed into the group by my trainer. He said: “Just talk, you know what you’re doing!”
I love finding quick, easy, effective tools that help us reduce fear because reducing fear allows for more freedom of choice and for taking positive action in our lives. Emotional Freedom Techniques, EFT or “Tapping” is one of these tools. I felt moved to share this technique with you.
Our bodies want to help us stay healthy. They have a lot to say and are a wealth of information. We get busy, life is loud and we miss the subtle tones of our body trying to get our attention. No matter – our bodies will eventually find a way to stop us and make us listen – which at that point we might not like what it has to say.
One of life’s Golden Rule’s I appreciate is: Don’t interfere with nature. It’s always served me and is completely common sense. Well, I found myself violating this rule when I came face to face with a fledgling, one I’d been watching for days, trying to hide under a small fern.Continue reading “A Fledgling’s Message”
I experienced synchronicity this past week that proved to be significant enough for me to investigate. I watched an episode of Agatha Christie’s Poirot and an Inspector Morse within a couple of days of each other. Just so happens, the two episodes were really similar – I unknowingly chose to watch the episodes where each inspector dies. I saw the last episode of Poirot and the last episode of Morse. Incredible, I thought: How can that be . . . and why? Continue reading “What is Your Soul Desiring to Express? A Message From Two Great Inspectors!”
