Hello my beautiful friends and welcome to the loving month of February! Thank you for taking the time to read this message, I hope that it serves you in allowing you to step out of your day and into some space with Spirit, more so into space for yourself. Last month I wrote about listening to your Soul’s wisdom verses your ego’s voice, while setting your goals and desires for this incredible year. This month, I would love to talk about the heart’s role in answering every question you have and guiding you to what is in your highest and best good. There is a saying that speaks volumes of truth, “All of the answers to which you are seeking lie within you.”
But how is that so? If you truly want answers to all of your questions, then you have to make the time to receive the answers. Throwing the question out there in your mind while picking up the dry cleaning and calling your mother back while driving to pick up the kids does not allow time to receive the answer believe it or not. So my message this month is: All of your questions are answered if you will but listen, sometimes this is easier said than done.
So how do I listen? Your heart holds the key.
Throughout the day we all have multiple questions come up for us. Sometimes it’s small like, “What should I get for dinner tonight?” and sometimes it’s bigger issues like, “Is my job or this relationship serving me? Am I truly happy here?”
All of these questions are completely valid and there’s a reason these questions are coming up for you. The more questions we ask, the more we are expanding our awareness and focusing on what is and what do we want it to be and how big of a gap is there between the two?
So you’re asking questions all day to yourself and the Universe… where are your answers? They are there! As soon as you pose a question in your mind, the Universe or Source or God or whatever you would like to call the Energy that is bigger than we are takes it and will bring you an answer. It’s a Universal truth kinda like gravity - it is always in place. The key is creating space to receive the answers. Now, I’m not suggesting that every time you pose a question that you stop and meditate on it for 20 minutes, that is totally not practical. However, by taking the time to receive the answers for even 10 minutes will grant you so many answers that have been piled up for you. It’s kind of like UPS dropped a lot of packages at your door step but you’ve been so busy going in and out of the garage you haven’t noticed that everything you are waiting for has already arrived!
So here’s how you create space to receive all of your answers:
1 - Take 10 -20 minutes out of your day either daily or maybe just once a week if that is more comfortable, to be in silence without any distractions.
2 - Set the intention for this time to be a time of receiving the answers to the questions that you have asked. For example, “I am giving myself this time and space in order to receive the guidance and answers that I have asked for.”
3 - Close your eyes so that you can focus on yourself and not the environment. Take several deep breaths to help calm your mind down. (the more often you do this, the more your body and mind will know that this is the time to be still. If your mind still strays a bit it’s ok, just picture the ideas as a bubble and let it float away and return to stillness.)
4 - Place your right hand over your heart. This is connecting you with your Soul’s wisdom which is directly connected to the Universe and your guidance.
5 - Ask to receive your answers or ask your question again and listen for the answer. For example, “ I am ready to receive the answers you have for me.” Then listen to what comes to you. Or you can ask your question again and listen for the answer, “What should I focus my attention on this week?” and then wait for the answer.
6 - The Checks and Balance part: When you get an answer, notice how you feel to know if it is coming from your Soul or if it’s your ego being sneaky and trying to impersonate the Soul’s message. If the information you receive feels light and resonates with you as “Ah, yes that makes sense and feels good.” = Truth and it’s coming from the right place. If you feel uncomfortable or heavy and self doubt comes skipping into the picture = Irk! Stop. This is not your truth. Take another deep breath to clear away the last answer and place your hand over your heart again and say “I would like to know the truth of this situation.”
Your heart is a portal to infinite wisdom and by checking in daily or a couple times a week, you will have a huge impact on your awareness and how you feel about the decisions you are making in your life. Heart guidance will lead you to feel empowered and inspired by the decisions you are making.
I want to add two disclaimers: Sometimes the guidance may ask us to step out side of our comfort zone which may feel uncomfortable at first and that is NOT a reason to stop moving forward. This is where your next question could be, “Ok, starting my own business terrifies me or loving myself completely is new for me and I don’t know what will happen or who I’ll be if I do. How can I feel more confident about this? Who could help me through this? What are some options that are available to me that I am not seeing?” This keeps you moving forward and weaves an even stronger bond between you and your guidance.
Also, sometimes your answer might not be ready…yet. Answers do always come to us but we have to remember that it will not be on our timeline but the Universe’s. If you ask a question and later that night you make time to receive the answer and you don’t get anything, that doesn’t mean you’ve done the exercise wrong, it could mean the answer is really good and it’s still in the works so come back in a week. So if you get silence when you ask for your answer, follow up with, “Ok Universe, is my answer SO amazing that it isn’t ready yet?” Feel free to have a sense of humor with it ok?
This exercise will create a beautiful dance of give and take that will enhance your intuition and help you move towards your dreams and aspirations much faster than before. I ask you to try this a few times and see what comes up for you. Please let me know what you experience if you like and if you have any questions or comments.
Thank you for allowing me to guide you through this process. I pray you find it helpful in achieving a happier and even more fulfilling life. Remember, YOU are the most important person in your life. Take care of yourself and nourish your life with what serves you.
In complete Love and Light,
I believe creative expression is essential to our freedom of being human. I dare you to embrace every opportunity to express yourself and to be in touch with who you are, how you feel and what you believe in.

“Forgiveness is the scent that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.” - Mark Twain
I always loved this quote. I’ve recently received an opportunity to practice what feels like extreme forgiveness because I had to really go deep to find the strength to send love to the situation, deeper than I’ve gone in a long time.
I realize that I will continue to be deep diving for a while, however, I feel that the first time you swim down the black hole and reach the pit of your stomach and find your heart laying there that in that moment healing as begun. As you swim to the surface and start to see the light shining in above the water line it instills a beautiful piece/peace of hope that it is going to be ok, that this too shall pass.
My mom would remind me while growing up that working through painful situations can bring you & the others involved closer in the end. In this case, our family will grow closer & for that I’m grateful.
Spirit, please be with us to guide us & give us extra oxygen as we deep dive.
And so it is! This week has been a busy one & an abundant one. I worked a trade show for a company I love working for and I met some great new friends, ran into some old friends I haven’t seen in a while who told me about some upcoming job opportunities. Thank you Universe! Tuesday, I was in the line at Coffee Bean and the lady in front of me paid for my coffee! How cool! So of course I paid for the lady’s coffee behind me and I left feeling so grateful - what an amazing way to start the day! This morning I woke up to a message that a friend of mine wanted to Gift me a reiki session! Yes please, I was just thinking about reiki yesterday (no joke) and how I’d like to go again soon.
Thank you Universe for showing me so many ways that I can receive and participate in giving. I look forward to All of the laughter and the joy you will bring to me next week!
Take time to rest…
Play in the rain and fill your mouth with water as you laugh - drink in All that life has for you.
