Erase the Labels and Experience!


To experience with others on this crazy playing field is to truly and wholeheartedly live.🙏🏻🙏🏻It's what we choose to do with each of these experiences that we are given, that proves to be the tell tale sign of whether we are willing at that moment to leap and grow or digress and fall back.


This doesn't mean that when you are faced with what seems to be a more challenging experience that you run in the other direction. 🤔Not always...Hell...that would be the easy way...the way that doesn't require good hard soul work...digging deeper than ever before and pulling out the lessons God is so gracefully handing you. God doesn't give you experiences for you to flee....


Letting go and releasing what doesn't serve you means to truly go within yourself, to feel whatever feelings come through, ✨honor them✨, surrender them to God and then truly follow your heart ❤️and no one else's. Releasing old patterns, creating new beautiful ones, rebuilding with a new stronger foundation, and sprinkling it all with a ton of  compassion. This will undoubtedly lead you to love...and with that comes freedom.🙏🏻


The biggest challenge for us is blocking the judgement that comes along with the choices we make in each of our OWN experiences. Judgment from others, and judgment from ourselves...


You see, judgment is so much easier than understanding...judgment wants action, judgment believes there is right and wrong.


We constantly try to put ourselves in other people's shoes 👞👠so that we can understand, but to truly understand and not judge takes way more work than the old shoe change.


When judgement comes up, it only means we are viewing the new moment through the lens of the past.


I've come to realize that you can't truly understand another's experience unless you actually live it, and here's why...It's not your experience to understand. It's not your story...it's not the chapter or the blueprint that was drawn up for you....


Remember, if it’s not your own experience than simply serve others by supporting them with compassion, love, and the willingness to believe that the past does not define anyone. Root for them...to learn, to grow, and to choose love for no one other than themselves.




We've become so robotic in this crazy world that we are so use to placing labels on all of our experiences. Good, bad, sad, exciting, eye-opening....you get the point.


What if we decided not to label the experiences that were so strategically placed in front of us?🙌🏻🙌🏻

What if we just called them experiences...and allowed them to happen, knowing that they were happening for us, for our highest and best...to learn...to feel..to become a better version of ourselves...to understand and remember?



We will always have a choice to let each experience that we encounter allow us to embrace growth or allow it to define ourselves with a shattered perception.

✨✨Just know that each experience is a gift and inside it a beautiful opportunity to accelerate and awaken in this life...so erase the labels and embrace each experience that comes your way, because they belong to you and only you!✨✨


Light, Love and Miracles

❤️Dana

The F word.....Forgiveness

 Forgiveness  — Forgiveness is to unattach and remove yourself from a person, situation or both, energetically.   When your trying to forgive, you need to remove yourself from the energy that is binding you to stay in that negative energy.    ✨I know it’s not easy, it can take a long time, and it’s something you work on every single day. In order to get to your freedom, you have no other choice, you don’t want to stay bound to that negative energy forever right?✨     👉🏻So get into the state of mind that you’re doing this for YOU, your peace, your freedom and you are letting go.👈🏻     Change can be uncomfortable and fearful, since we tend to fear the unknown, that is simply you relying on your own strength to figure it all out and take care of it all. You don’t have to, take all that stress and worry and give it up to the universe, God, your higher power, allow yourself to trust and have faith, even if that means your entire life is going to drastically change. The universe has your back, and is guiding you, the resistance that you’re creating is the need to control how you think it should be going and it’s keeping you stuck.       ✨Forgive and let go, so you untwine from anyone’s energy but your own. It is YOUR energy that is crying for freedom, allow yourself to forgive, untwine, release and let go. You will forever be grateful you did this.✨     Did you know that when you’re in a negative situation with someone really close to you, if you have given them power over your own self, their energy cord can literally be wrapped around your mind, heart, and body so tightly, that it looks like a vine wrapping itself around you and almost suffocating you. This is no good!! Those cords and vines, aren’t allowing your energy to flow, they aren’t allowing you to think clearly, and they are foggy with that other persons energy. Crazy right, to think that energy can literally do that to you, it can. I had no idea this was possible until I was in a situation where the cords were wrapped around me, crazy. The best thing is it can be undone too, it’s energy, the ebb and flow of life and it’s the choice to change your thoughts about someone or a situation and take your power back. This is what helped me remove the cords; my thoughts, my energy, and reiki. Your thoughts are your most powerful tool.    “I forgive you ______, I forgive this situation, I remove myself from this energy and allow myself to be free. I send you ______ love and light, thank you universe for removing any negative energy that no longer serves me. I flow with ease and grace and allow only love and positivity to be in and around me. I release the outcome and pray for the highest good for all. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”     YOU are capable of freedom, you are capable of forgiveness, you are in charge, and you can do it.  I believe in you.   Much love & light, Stacy

Are you settling or living?

IMG_9371.PNG

 

I'm in a moment where loss and hardships have given me courage to write these words and spread this message that I think is so real and raw. It's my own personal pep talk.

 

Loss, devastation, heartbreak, disease comes and smacks you in the face, you have a few choices on how to handle it, none of them right or wrong, all of them exactly as they are meant to be, feel the emotions, let it go, give it to god, and then heal. They have an incredible way of awakening you, they smack the hell out of you and try to tell you to wake the f up, this is your life, are you happy, are you living it, or are you just existing. They make you realize what really matters, love, and what doesn’t, your new car. They open you up to want YOU to have more joy, more happiness, more truth, more beauty, more bravery and more courage, to live exactly how you WANT to.

 

You honor the ones that are gone too soon by LIVING, actually pushing away the excuses and stories you tell yourself on why you cant, or why you're in this dilemma, and start getting out of your own way. You take full responsibility for it all and realize that we can make changes and live better when we are WILLING. Don't ever settle on how you think you "should" be, be YOU fully and own that sh*t.

 

 

👉🏻Are you settling? If you were given an end date, (so morbid I know, but it opens your eyes) what would you do different with the time you had? 🤔

 

Every disaster, every ugly encounter, every hardship is to wake you up. Theres no other way of saying this, these moments allow you to take a step back, take yourself out of the game to break the old unwanted beliefs and patterns, figure out how to take full responsibility (it's not an overnight figureoutable thing) and then focus on YOU.

 

You will lose contact with some, you will create magical new relationships that appear at the perfect time, quotes, songs, people will speak to you, you will learn to forgive the past, you will take action to make the phone calls you’ve been putting off, you will set the date with the person who you’ve been meaning too, you will start to live more.

 

And then you will say no, unapologetically. You will say no when you don’t want to leave the house, you will say no when the distant relatives invite comes and you're not feeling it (always send a gift 😉), you will say no when you want to, unapologetically. You have a choice to choose your freedom, and saying no is mandatory if you want freedom. (No hard feelings it's the truth, we all have regretted saying yes when we knew deep down we should have and could have said no, preach!)

 

Get the things done that are so close in reach that you really have no reason to not be doing them. Start to plan for the things that need planning and excite you, like vacations and bucket list things.

 

Surround yourself physically and electronically (texting, social media) with the tribe of people that life you up, that don't judge you, that make you feel light, that truly love you for you without trying to change YOU, those are your people.

 

Life is a blessing, we don’t know our fate, so live, stop playing small, stop trying to fix what's not working anymore, stop making the excuses and stories, (well you won't stop fully doing that but you'll become more aware of them, i have a list of excuses and stories, and most I'm aware of and the others are a work in progress.) The point is execute what you love and want, try to live without regret, start to spread your wings and love with all you have, and that includes yourself!

 

As life moves along and I witness loss, heartache, disease, mother natures devastation, I live a little more. I thank God way more than I did the day before. (so ridiculous I should be thanking him like that all the time, but this is real talk.) I say I love you more to myself, to my family, to my friends.

 

 

That's the funny thing about hardships, they make you more aware, to BE more.

 

 

👉🏻Awareness comes out of the darkness.👈🏻

 

 

My message is always clear, I talk about the trust I have in the universe, all the faith I put into my higher power of God, how I’ve found ways to calm my mind and heart, how I’ve learned to truly forgive, how I try to live most days as present as possible, and other days I second guess more than I should, I'm a work in progress, aren't we all.

 

And then I ask myself,

 

"Ten years from now make sure you can say that you chose your life, you didn't settle on it."

 

 

I so humbly remember to let go of the judgements, let go of the bullshit, release what feels ridiculously heavy and start embracing what feels light; laughter, joy, fun, love, forgiveness, trust, faith, letting go, surrender, prayer, whatever is your truth, find it and ride that wave.

 

🌟We have no idea the contract we signed on how long we'll be here on Mother Earth. What I know for sure is that every moment is awakening you to live your fullest potential, even the darkest times that we may never understand the why, crack us open. And at some point when the healing occurs you start to serve and help others find their light through your experiences, it's not happening to you it's happening for your highest good, to be more love.🌟

 

 

You are a warrior, embrace the love, ride the waves and don't ever settle on your life. You are capable you just need to be willing to take the action.

 

Much much love and light,

 

Stacy

A world to love

So this.....uncomfortable, honest, brave and courageous.

 

 

Our world has endured many many many heart aches as time goes on, when will it be over? When will it not be a topic on the news? When will the privilege, become an equal? When will we realize that we are all the same on the inside when we take our skin off? And for the love of God when will we realize that we are all equal, from children all the way to elderly, equal, no separation, no separate beliefs, no hierarchy, no difference, no judgement, all made the same way, all equal on every level. No amount of money, fame, ego or hate can hide the fact that a human is a human, kindness is kindness, and love is love.

 

 

For many spiritual light workers and positive influences in this world, every moment of hate brings a call for more love, more equality, more speaking up to Be the Change.

It's uncomfortable because of the judgement, but there's a call for action when there's an illusion of separation from our world beliefs from centuries ago, that we can't seem to fully shake.

We keep evolving, we are far from where we were, and have been, yet the ego is still dominating some people in their thoughts of this separation.

 

Let's teach ourselves and our children that we are ONE, that we are not separate, that there is no specialness or thoughts of being better than another,  there's no separate belief systems besides love and that we are all equally human. Let's recognize this and become aware of the ego thoughts and behaviors and learn to return to love, oneness and forgiveness.

 

Imagine a world and school system where self love, forgiveness, love and equality where the main subjects? I'm putting it out there because, well we surely need it. I dream of that place to send my kids and for our world. Favorite subject; love.

 

Uncomfortable is what this is about, political I am not, living under a rock, I am not either. I know what's going on, not the nitty gritty details, and in all honesty, do I need to know them in order to see and understand that this world still has so much healing to do?

 

Healing, being held accountable for who you are and what you infuse this world with is where we should be focusing. To honor that not all understand the power of oneness, but still being compassionate, forgiving in order to create a world of peace, that you're proud to be a part of.

 

I've sat on these words for a while, I think I tend to always do this when a tragic world event happens, I write and then never post because of my fears, but this time I can't let my uncomfortableness stop me, because even if I touch one person, then that's what this is all about.

 

It's not always love and light, it's getting super uncomfortable and deciding to take action for yourself, break the old patterns and start over. It's hard work, that only a fraction of us commit to, and in order to diffuse any old pattern or old belief to work, you have to be willing.

 

So how do you get people to become wiling, you love them through the darkness, and you support the ones that are willing to create change.

I'm compassionately sharing this with you and the world, not to create any more fear or anxiety in you but to rather allow you to see this differently. To see that we need to keep getting uncomfortable so that we can overcome this as a country and world.

 

To keep sharing our love, to keep our momentum going in the direction of healing. To keep encouraging ourselves and others to do random acts of kindness, to teach ourselves and our kids about love, compassion, forgiveness, and equality.

 

To remember what Mother Teresa said, "If you want to change the world, go home and love your family."

 

At first I thought I shouldn't share since it's a week late and then I thought with the solar eclipse today, (and I got over myself 🙃) and the shifting in energy astrology wise, no better time than to talk about what to give up.

 

Give up what no longer serves you for the next few days, all those feelings of fear, doubt, and judgement, give them to the sun and moon. And then keep doing YOU to keep making this world a better place. Any amount of love and kindness means a whole lot, keep spreading the love.

What happens when life throws you some pretty hard lemons? 🍋🍋🍋



Do you make lemonade?



I've had some pretty intense conversations this week, with real life stories happening. All different topics, with real life people handling them the best way they can and know how.



The common theme for them all is, what's going to give? How's the cycle and the pattern going to break if your actions and reactions aren't willing to change yet?



How would life look right now if you knew in this very moment that the universe, God, whoever you put your faith into, is working in a way to awaken you and lead you to a better way of living? He's nonchalantly removing all that no longer serves you and is slowly replacing it with what you desire.



I feel relief, faith, and trust when I think of someone far bigger than me, supporting me. I feel guided and know that's a force I can rely on when I feel myself slipping back into my old ways.



👉🏻That power is your saving grace, it's your prayer, it's your helpline and it's the force you need to let take over.👈🏻



The experiences that get thrown our way that involve other people's actions, is sometimes truly out of our control, kinda. Can we really understand the concept of our thoughts manifesting our life. That subconsciously everything that is happening is what we've chosen to make our lives brighter and better, but only if we choose to see it that way. Like the situation where deep down want out, a different way, and then some way or another it happens. It may not be how you thought, and as time goes by you realize it was exactly what you needed.



✨We sink into these patterns of unhappiness and abruptly wake up one day to think, how did this happen? How did I get to this?✨



We forget that we always had a chance to change, even when it's the scariest and hardest choice of our lives, we have chosen the easy way, the comfortable way, until we're forced to chose uncomfortable.



Things either hit the fan or your fed up with the way life is going, that something has to give, and you realize it's you.



🌟We have to give a damn to change. We have to be so fed up with the crap we've been putting up with to finally take a stand for a life that we want. A life that we're HAPPY in. 🌟



We have to give up the excuses, the stories, the justifications, and everything else that comes with our unhappiness and choose the real, made from scratch lemonade. Not the fake store kind, hiding behind the ingredients lemonade, ya know the one that puts on a good front, we want the REAL authentic deal with no added preservatives.



👉🏻That's where all the hard work happens. Squeezing those lemons and taking the time to get back to basics, it's worth it on so many levels, and the main level is the foundation of yourself.👈🏻



It's worth the blood, sweat and tears because it's cracking you open to be the person your excited to be, even on your darkest days. It's allowing you to be free and brave and courageous. It's allowing you to be real and raw. These changes are what your soul needs.



So when life hands you some lemons. Look in the mirror and decide if your willing to put down the artificial kind and make your own homemade lemonade, and own your story. Own what you want, own who you are and allow yourself to be real.



Forget all the preservatives that we think we need in order to sustain and get back to the authentic basics. You and your thoughts, that's where you begin. Feel the pain, honor the emotions, look in the mirror, love and forgive yourself. No one matters more than you.

✨Find your faith, affirm your way through the day, and remember uncomfortable gets your comfortable.✨

Your daily dose....

"What you think you become, what you feel you attract, what you imagine you create." Buddha


🚫Don't beat yourself up if you go down a negative road, forgive yourself, allow yourself to be real and honor who you are.


🛑 Stop and then start over.


Every minute, every second we are blessed with the opportunity to begin again.


💟To choose love over fear, doubt, worry and negativity.


☮️To forgive ourselves, to forgive others and to create more of what we WANT in our lives.


🔮We are, we are, we are the creators of our lives.🔮


📿Your energy, your thoughts and your behavior, everything you are tells the universe, more of this.📿


🔆Keep choosing love, positivity, gratitude, faith and trust.🔆

A sneak peak of Mondays event....

Give more gratitude, give more love, give more laughter, give more positivity, give more of what you want more of in your life.

Last night we took a night swim in the pool and it was in those moments of laughter, and joy that I realized I don't play enough.

I sit on the sidelines watching the fun and enjoying the view but not everyday am I in the action, and it's my own fault.

I gave more, I went in, didn't worry about a thing, and it felt so goood. To be fully present, fully engaged and full of gratitude for these little souls that teach me everyday.

🌟Give more, it feels so good. When you want a change from someone in your life; most times it's a direct reflection of what your holding back, give them more of what YOU want.🌟

🔅When you give it is the LAW that it WILL come back, in divine timing.🔅

❤️Be who and what you want in your life, play, laugh, love, be more positive, give more gratitude and love!❤️

A sneak peek of our talk for Monday July 24th

You have the power, you just need to be willing

Let me take you back to almost five years ago, when I was desperately trying to find a way to peace and happiness. I would wake up feeling overwhelmed, go to sleep feeling overwhelmed and wake up in the middle of the night overwhelmed, with my emotions and thoughts running wild.

On the outside everything looks peachy, just like it always does right? But the inside was a different story.

I had to find a better way, I was sick and tired of my own BS and sick and tired of being sick and tired. I was on a hamster wheel going round and round with the same song and dance just another day. Anyone know the feeling? 🙋🏼🙋🏼🙋🏼

Then I had some moments of surrender and WILLINGNESS, I asked my friend, who was super peaceful, calm and happy what to do, what did she do? She gave me things to say and do, and I didn't truly believe them but I did them bc anything was worth trying at this point and I so desperately wanted change.

After some time, I relaxed and realized that I wasn't supposed to control everything, my need to control and my fears of the "what ifs" were causing the overwhelm. I wasn't supposed to think or feel I could do it all by myself. I needed and searched for resources, outlets, guidance and support, without any substances to mask the core issues.

Meditation came into play, finding a connection back to God, a higher power, my Higher Holy Self, angels, and guides, that was a game changer. I would literally quiet my mind for as little as 2 minutes or 10 minutes depending on what I had. I would sit trying to make those constant thoughts quiet down and sit still remembering that I was connected to a higher power. That was it, nothing fancy just shifting my thoughts to interrupt the pattern of chaotic thoughts and when it happened a shift would be made and felt, a little piece of calm would rush over me and I'd be able to think and be more clear.

When we forget, which we often do, that we are connected and made from this magnificent higher power of pure angelic LOVE, we create separation and feel all those ego driven emotions; fear, anxiety, stress, jealousy, resentment, anger, betrayal, entitlement, the list goes on.

It was hard work, I needed the change, I longed for it, I became WILLING and was doing all the hard core work to get there.

🙌🏻💫It's in that connection to a higher power where the real love and change is, no outside anything can fix what's going on in the inside, it's solely our thoughts that can make us or break us. 💫🙌🏻

Be willing to break the patterns and make new ones.

It's up to us to find a deeper connection to ourselves, it's our way of healing our shadows of darkness and finding the light to outcast what those shadows made us believe.

We are made of love and light. Say these affirmations to help bring you light, love, and peace.

🔅You are loved.🔅

🔅You are worthy.🔅

🔅You are safe.🔅

🔅You are protected.🔅

🔅You CAN do this.🔅

Love yourself. Honor your wounds, and bring light to them. You are here to heal. You are worthy of your love.

❤️❤️❤️

Find your freedom

 

I often ask myself what it means to be free, these days. Freedom is such a powerful word, it allows for you to have a choice. A choice to make changes, a choice to live unapologetically authentic, a choice to feel lighter and freer. 

Doesn't that feel good? Bask in the thoughts of freedom for a few minutes. Allow yourself to feel lighter and shifted, and when your done figure out how you can get there.

We're capable of living free. Yes of course there may be some obligations that aren't jiving with your definition of freedom, but look deeper. Look into those obligations and realize that they are a choice. A choice that you have chosen to either commit to, become part of or it wouldn't be in your life. Am I right? 

Freedom is such a liberating word, like the wind in your hair on a magical sunshine day. Freedom of your thoughts, your stories that hold you back, and all the drama or chaos that you want gone from your life. It sounds fabulous doesn't it? 

First things first, you are in control of your thoughts, which then create your actions, which then create your outcomes. Every thought is a direct reflection into your life.

 Like a movie being played and you are the director, your thoughts are exactly the same. Chose the script you want to live wisely, and you'll be amazed at how the story plays out. 

If your not sure how to choose the right thoughts, try using this common question, is this from a place of love or ego? If it's doesn't have love attached to it, meaning it doesn't feel good saying it, well say hello to your little ego friend. Love, love, love is speaking from your spirit self, your inner truth, the place where your freedom lives, where guilt is nowhere to be found. Stop before you speak and ask yourself, is this freeing myself or keeping me in my old ways. It's a choice, witness it, feel it, let it come or go and then speak. Go hide in a bathroom until you can make the best choice if you have to, just listen closely and choose your path of freedom. 

Now onto the damn stories you keep telling yourself which are never really going to be gone, just like your thoughts, you'll just get better on realizing them quicker so you can squash them faster. Ask yourself is this real or am I making this up? It's kind of like when a child makes up these believable imaginative stories, except ours are so believable we don't even realize they aren't real. 

For a long time I told myself that I didn't have a big enough story to be able to share this kind of work. My story wasn't sufficient enough for people to really trust and listen to what I had to say on a spiritual level. I said it for years, i created this story about how my passion, my life experiences, and all the learning and classes I took weren't enough. When the truth is, your story is what got you here, big or small. It's what brought me to a place of transformation and put me on this spiritual path of understanding, growing, learning and teaching. It's doesn't matter about your back story really, what matters is your truth, love and light that you are willing to share authentically.

 On another note, an everyday story might sound something like this. I can't do that today because I don't have time. I can't meditate today since I'm super busy and have kids and well don't have time. Wake up earlier you have time. I can't cook a healthy meal today since I don't have the time or ingredients, go to the store, order Peapod, prepare and organize, go out to eat and choose the healthiest option, it's possible, we all know it. Then comes the exercise one, again with the time thing we do, we all know 3 out of 7 days, we sure do have enough time for us to get grounded and get in a gratifying workout.

It's all a choice we have. We can choose to fulfill the unsatisfying story we're creating or we can make a new story that makes us feel good!!

Call them excuses, call them stories, we all have them, some little, some big, dig deep and find the magic place where the truth lives. Where you realize you are capable of anything you want to.

 Now once you practice these steps, the drama and chaos, they melt away and find themselves a new home to disrupt. Experiences will come, you will witness them, you'll become the producer, you will choose your thoughts from a place of love, and it'll all glide off of your magnificent energetic love filled field and you won't be bothered.

It doesn't mean you don't care, it means you care so much about yourself and your freedom that you chose to not engage in anything besides experiences that lift you up and bring you closer to your freedom. You now have chosen love as your guiding light.

 You are capable of change, you are the producer of your thoughts and life, start viewing it that way. Make a list of all the things that make you feel free and work towards them. Freedom is magical, real, and closer than you think. Let your freedom ring!!

❤️❤️❤️

You may not know my story....

I think I've only told my transformational story to the world once, and after watching Gabby Bernstein free video training, I've been I inspired. I tend to hide it and not be vulnerable with it, and I realized I have shame attached to it. But the truth is there's no actual shame within it, it's my own story and it's here to help serve others, it's not about me.

https://xh111.isrefer.com/go/sjm2017vid1/Sjr133


In 2011, I can still remember and feel the weight being lifted off of my shoulders and chest, the fresh beachy air fully filling my lungs, the wind in my fac, and I could finally breathe. I knew in that moment, life was so much more than the feelings of fear, stress, and unhappiness I had been carrying around. There had to be a better way.

 

 

In that moment, change began. Not just in my physical world, my spiritual world began its mission. The mission of finding peace, happiness, surrender and truly loving my life, in the most authentic gratifying way.  

 

 

 

I walked on a path of devouring spiritual books that spoke to me, watching videos and Super Soul Sunday episodes on overcoming fear and stepping into your authentic self. I was a regular at my mentors meditations, where peace and the presence of love were never missing. I stayed on my commitment of monthly energy healings, and I created space to just be still. To be fully present with my family, to be aware of the lessons my kids were teaching me, and to hold the mirror up and realize I was in charge of EVERY aspect of my life.

 

 

In this moment of time I was the co owner of a business where along the way love became absent. I was a mama to two boys under two, my husband was expanding his side hustle and life was pretty busy, we couldn't breathe.

 

 

I kept on the spiritual path with obstacles and tests along the way, where some I failed and some I rejoiced in, and I still do to this day. I began work at a new space with less hustle and less hours, my husband toned down the extra hours to be home more, since in this soul searching we both came to realize was crucial to us and our kids. To be with them and honor this time, since these days pass us by quicker than we could ever imagine and no amount of extra money could replace that time with them.

 

 

Choices and decisions were made all for my spiritual and personal growth. Friendships were bonded and broken, new faces came into my world to help serve my highest good, to support this new outlook, to lift me up and to keep me grounded. I didn't ask for this verbally but subconsciously, I surrendered to it and allowed it.

 

 

I gave up the need to control outcomes, I got in touch with angels, they spoke to me and showed me signs, I shifted from a place of my mind being in ego mode, to a place of spirit mode. In other words life wasn't a battle anymore, life was flowing and when it didn't, because let's be real there will always be some sort of experience, I saw it differently. I saw it from a place of learning and growing vs blame and defense. It was hard work, I needed my inner self, my mentors and my tribe to help me. And to this day of course I need them just as much.

 

 

 

I share just a touch of my awakening story with you for no other reason than to let you know it's possible and to recognize yourself in my story of transformation. It's possible to shift and change at any time in your life. It's possible to follow your heart and listen to the whispers of sharing your stories, and sharing your life wisdom. If you don't know, Louise Hay at 60 years old, wrote,” You Can Heal Your Life” and tons of other inspirational books after that, and created Hay House where a lot of beautiful spiritual mentors connect.  http://hayhouse.com   So how about that anybody, at any age can do it!

 

 

I shared Gabby Bernstein's link of building your confidence for a lot of reasons with the number one reason of it changing my life.

https://xh111.isrefer.com/go/sjm2017vid1/Sjr133

I gravitate to Gabby's work, I was WILLING to hear it then and create a space of willingness when I hear it now. Every time I listen to any of her talks or read her content I learn and have moments of a new awareness. That's why I share her work. It changes lives.

 

 

 

Now years later, mama of 3 little ones, doing the side hustle and real hustle, I'm still learning and growing. I'm honoring the work it is to grow and expand spiritually, and doing it hard core. I'm getting out of my own way and sharing in hope of making this world kinder and brighter. As I develop my website, create inspiring messages, be more vulnerable, coach the beautiful souls that are seeking change, heal the ones who seek energy work, and unfold to this calling, my only hope is to serve and help others find their way. I appreciate everyone of you for always listening and I hope you saw and felt faith and trust in my story and your story.

 

 

 

Much love,

Stacy

 

 

I'm here to serve, so if you feel called to reach out about my spiritual coaching, listen to the call, stacyread13@gmail.com is where we can connect. ❤️

 

The Best Ways To Speak Your Truth With Love and Grace

recently had an experience where I had two choices, to go along for the ride and resist change or to stand in my authentic power of truth and what I believed in for myself. One of my many life lessons through the last 4 years or so has been to speak my truth. In the past I failed, was presented many situations over and over again, until I succeeded and LEARNED the value of speaking my truth. I learned that it's not worth the compromise of my happiness. 

he power of speaking and BEING your authentic truth is one of the most important ways to live your highest best life aka being happy. We have this part of us that wants to please those around us to make things easy and non confrontational, but the truth is when we people please, we are moving further away from our authentic self, happiness and the beauty of peace and truth. 

There are steps and ways to follow your truth all while being graceful and speaking from a place of love. 

It's easier as time goes on in this practice and speaking from experience the quicker you speak your truth with love, the more good you're allowing into your life from the guidance of the universe. 

When being presented a situation that doesn't follow your truth of what you believe in or want for yourself, the first thing to do is recognize the feeling you feel. At first it will probably be mixed with a little ego but once you recognize that and surrender those yucky feelings to the universe that's when your perception changes. That's where the love and truth show up and show you a clear picture of what you truly desire. So the first step is to quiet the mind and listen, if it's not from a place of love then it's your ego. Make sure you sent the intention of the desire you want and once you make your choice make sure it serves your highest and best but also serves the others involved. 

Now that your choice is made it's time to own it and believe it. Your vibrations match what you believe, so if you aren't confident and fully present with your choice, others will feel it and things might not go as smooth. Stand in line with your choice and honor your truth fully and unapologetically. 

You're making your choice based on what your heart says, your dreams wish for and you're trusting the universe has your back in this shift. 

There's no need to doubt your choice, especially when you are in line with the truth of who you are. It's best to stay in this space for as long as you need, stay until the doubt fades away and you feel the confident shift. You'll know when the time is right to move forward to the next step. Everyone and every situation is unique, so trust your own inner guidance and all will be well. 

Once you are clear and are now confident with the best choice for your truth and highest and best, it's communication time. This means delivering the message of your truth with love, compassion and grace! Self empowerment and truth are two of the most remarkable traits someone can have when done with love. There's no room for negativity when love is present. Blast the room with thoughts of love, envision white light everywhere, honor the passionate feelings and speak your truth. Guide yourself through your communication with faith and trust. Without compassionate, graceful communication your truth will be hidden. If it's comes from love, love will follow YOU. And as a side note, you are NOT in control of another's actions or reactions. You can only control your actions and reactions, choose love and the universe will reward your truth and fulfill you with peace, abundance and happiness. 

These steps may seem so simple, and yet we find ourselves in conflict with others or see conflict in others when the communication and truth are absent. If you don't speak and live your truth, your compromising everything you believe in. You're playing small and compromising your happiness. Set your intentions to be at the highest and best for yourself and those involved. Speak from a place of authentic truth, be confident, and communicate, communicate, communicate. The last step is crucial to your well being.

Once you communicate your truth from a place of love, everything else will gently and magically fall into place. You are the driver of your soul, chose your truth. Speak your truth and own your truth. I may say this over and over but it's so important, to make sure your walking in honor of what you say and believe. Walk your truth, share your truth with others and yourself, and remember  the truth will always set you free.

Kids Need Positivity Too! 

Us gals at Light, Love and Miracles, just left a meeting for a beautiful new collaboration that involves positivity for kids! Awesome right!! 

It's a beautiful opportunity to create a space for kids to become more "aware" of their feelings, thoughts and behaviors, while understanding they are in charge of their positivity which creates their happiness. 

On our way out we saw this beautiful quote, 

"Mistakes are proof that you are trying" 

It hit a cord with me and on the drive home I couldn't help but feel overwhelmed with love and gratitude for this opportunity. I TRUST that we are being guided to serve, not only adults and parents but kids too, who are our future!! 

When I pull my angels cards, the card indigo and crystal children card comes up for me a lot. I always thought it was because of my own children, which I'm sure it is, but I recognized today it's also for ALL children. 

As we guide, teach, and share, we are reaching and connecting with parents and adult influences, who are searching for ways to become more awakened, and in that search they are finding peace, ways to find happiness, tools to calm their thoughts, and finding ways to live with gratitude. Those tools, energy and behaviors trickle onto the young ones around them. It's a beautiful domino affect. 

We are what they look to for an example on how to live. We need to make sure the way we speak to them is the voice we wish for them to hear in their quiet times alone, a voice that speaks with love, compassion, understanding, forgiveness and gratitude. A voice that doesn't yell, undermine, hurt, and degrade when they make a mistake. Mistakes are how we ALL learn, it doesn't matter your age. If you aren't making mistakes you aren't learning and we all know we learn everyday. 

Bottom line is we're here to serve and bring happiness, positivity, growth and truth to the surface and we need to do the same for the young kids around us, family or not. Be a role model, remember they are watching and listening to the way you talk, react, live and choose to be. Be a loving force for them to gravitate to, emanate positive energy.  

I'm excited for our future, and honored to help serve and be a light worker. As my girl Gabby Bernstein says,

"There are far more people in need of your work than there are people doing the work."  

Light, love and miracles is here to serve and connect in your truth as we recognize our own truth!!  

Thank you for allowing us to grow, teach, and spread the love and light! We appreciate you, now go be a light worker, the world needs you!! 

❤️❤️❤️

5 Ways to Move You Foward Towards Your Hopes and Dreams... to live your purpose fully. 

Five steps on how to realize the truth behind the story you keep telling yourself and how to bust through it to live a fuller life. 

I've been sitting in my corner doing the work. I've been healing, learning, growing, getting spiritual certifications, reading, blogging, praying, meditating, trying so hard to live in the judgment free zone, and spreading my light to all that welcome it. 

Yet I know I'm still not standing fully in the power of my light. I know there's a part of me that's been hiding. We create these stories about why we can't do something or why we aren't doing something and it holds us back from our goals and dreams. I recognize this, I have a story, more than one, I'm owning it, I'm battling it, feeling my way through it and I'm ready to bust through it so I don't keep letting myself be small. 

One of the few stories I tell myself goes like this, "I'm not sure I have enough certifications to be sharing this wisdom with the world, why would people listen to me.....I can start spiritual lifestyle coaching people when I get more certifications...... My energy healing mentor is so much better than me, so how can I start when I'm not at her level.......I have three kids, I don't have enough time." That's a few rolled into one but you get the idea. 

I'm still busting through some of those stories but a few I've conquered, faced and put trust into my intuition and higher self, and that's why I'm able to share a few different ways to bust through the story your telling yourself which is really holding you back.  

I'm here to share with you the different ways that helped me and are helping me move forward through my story. 

#1 Recognize the "story" or excuse you've created that's holding you back from what you truly desire.  This is a great way to take back your power, and stay in line with love vs fear. Once I realized that I was giving away my power to my story, I knew I had to shift my mindset. I knew that none of it was true, it was just the thoughts I created to make myself believe and have a reason for not moving forward. Those thoughts were surrounded by fear, when really they should be uplifting me to achieve my goals, they were in return bringing me down a fear based road. 

#2 Stop comparing and remember that everyone starts at a different point. 

People start somewhere, somehow and with what they have in that moment. It takes years of practice, learning, lessons, and trust to get to a place of success no matter what you do. From Oprah, to Gabby Bernstein, to the awesome angel card reader out there, to your boss, to your successful businessman neighbor, they all believed, were courageous, put themselves out there, and started despite their doubts and fears. The key fact you NEED to remember is that they all chose to START! If we really think about it, most mentors, heroes, or anybody you admire, took the leap in faith with trust and just started. Can you imagine a world if they didn't? As I realize this more and more, I feel a sense of surrender, release and trust take over. I know I'm supported, so why don't I leap? Well it's the practicality of finances for one, the fear of who will listen and the list goes on, like I told you before. But the reality of it all , none of those fears matter if I'm not willing to start. I have to start in order to find out if these stories are even true?! Right?! So here I am with a spiritual blog, that I finally started over a year ago, here I am actually practicing active energy work after years of taking the classes, and here I am acknowledging the start of many more endeavors I dream of! 

#3 Focus on one thing you wish to change and then master that shift, BEFORE starting a new one. 

Decide what the most important story is you've been telling yourself and squash it! When your focus is distracted by other goals and shifts it's hard to make the authentic shift truly occur. When I was scattered and not focusing on one major story, it kept repeating itself and showing up. It wasn't fully going away or changing until it had my full undivided attention in order to really make that energetic shift and move forward with a different mindset. When the focus is on a new way to be and think about a situation it takes time, patience and consistency to make the change happen, it doesn't happen over night. So commit to that one story and START to make the thought pattern change!! 

#4 Be proactive. Be a doer. Get shit done. Stop waiting for tomorrow or the next day. 

Get off your butt, get off social media and make the moves you need, to organize your future plans. No one is going to create your future for you, and no one is in charge of your life and action plan except YOU!! Put the phone down, make the to do lists, and start crossing it off. When I get sucked into my phone, procrastination land or whoa is me world, I never feel great about my time management. I know how valuable time is and how important it is for us to seize the day, but when a few too many days of la la land happen, I beat myself up of the couldas and shouldas and then my story becomes about how I'm too busy and don't have enough time. When in fact I could have made a simple but huge connection with my time, but I chose to be in another world not PRIORITIZING my goals and dreams! And I'll leave you with what Marie Forleo said so beautifully,

"How would you behave if you were the best in the world at what you do."  Get that motivation going!!!

#5 Forgive and love yourself AND those around you

Forgiveness is the key to EVERY relationship you have. It keeps the energy flowing at a higher vibration, it allows love to fill your field. When you can't get past your story, it's because love and forgiveness are lacking. Once I realized that I was blocking myself from my goals, my thoughts went from a place of frustration, anger, and guilt to love and forgiveness. We all go down the path and it's what actually awakens us even more when we recognize our story is untrue. But there's no reason to beat ourselves up over it. In order to move forward we need to forgive, love and let God. Forgive your thoughts and actions. Forgive the lower vibrations around you for their energies, actions or thoughts and genuinely send them love and light. Give yourself the credit and courage for all you've done to get here and honor your steps that will get you there! Love yourself enough to believe that you can achieve your hopes and dreams. Energies don't lie, so make sure you are putting out what you are hoping for in return. If you aren't loving and forgiving yourself and others, you will not move forward in the direction of love. Once you conquer this you will be free, you will surrender to your greatest good and you will trust that the universe has your back fully and whole heartedly.

Awful Amazing 

 I sit here and I think about the past three years. April 6th, 2014. I can remember the day as if it was yesterday. I can see faces, I can hear sounds and I can feel the sunlight on my face. I see myself - broken.

As I type this blog the tears fall, but the memories never fade. The memories of driving to the beach, the sound of laughter and the love that stays within my heart. Three Christmases were I felt nothing but love in my heart seeing the magic in my children's eyes. Pure joy, traveling  with my family to see my sister get married feeling such excitement and being so grateful. The courage I felt when I started a new job.  Birthdays, holidays, fun times with friends, new opportunity, vacations!!  So much to be thankful for and so much to look forward too. 

 I have felt so much love and happiness in the past three years.

The heartache I felt on that day- I will always remember. Emotions are strong as they come and go.

Pain, Sadness, Happiness, Joy.  Through all the emotion is Love. Love allows you to be aware of your emotions. Life teaches, Gratitude, Awareness, Courage, Faith, and God who is Love.  

My mom has healed me so I no longer feel broken. I work hard…. everyday all day staying in my lane, remembering she is with me always guiding me forward never backwards. My faith reminds me I am protected. I have angels surrounding me that love and work with me. My memories are strong and my mom's spirit is vibrant.

Mom I love you! Keep working with me. xoxo

Today I ask you to breathe in the Amazing and Hold onto the Love.

Light and Love Always, Jaime
