A Walking Meditation

A Walking Meditation


I love to start my day with a walking meditation. Today with all the flowers blooming, it was a glorious assault to my senses as I consciously walked by rose bushes, trees and wildflowers awake and alive to the sound of life.
awalkingmeditation
Before you go out for a walk, set your intention to walk about mindfully. Ask to become aware of the subtle energies of the plants and animals, of the trees and even the people you encounter while out to play. Then, as you walk around, notice the thoughts, feelings, and the smells that are happening all around you. Top by next to a tree and feel it’s energy. Quiet your mind and your thoughts and just feel. It just might surprise you what that tree has say. Feel the earth beneath your feet. If you can, take off your shoes and walk upon the good earth and just feel her.

To do a walking meditation, begin by setting your intention – saying a prayer – stating that you want to consciously connect to the plants, animals, and the earth as walk upon her. Quiet your heart, your mind, and your breath. Feel yourself connect with mother earth. Open your eyes and notice all of the thoughts, feelings, and sensations that arise. Do not judge them, just let flow and be what they are. When you return from your walking meditation, journal about those thought and feelings. It just might amaze you as new awareness and understanding emerges.

Your Angel Guidance is to take a walking meditation through your neighbourhood!

Lucky me! I have two beautiful little dogs that I take for walks everyday. That means that I go outside for a walk, regardless of the weather. I love to be out early in the morning when most of the world is still asleep. This time of the day is magical and it makes it easier to connect with the world around you. Get up early and go for a conscious walk tomorrow morning and see what a difference it makes in your day!

Connect with Your Inner Guru

Connect with Your Inner Guru

Connecting with your inner Guru is the best guidance you can receive.  A Guru is a spiritual teacher of great wisdom. The only true Guru is God’s presence within you.  This connection seeks to intuitively instruct you as to the living of your life and reaching enlightenment, or reaching a union with God or the Christ Consciousness within yourself.

You are your own best guidance. You know what you want, you know what is right and best for you when you hone your skills at making this connection stronger. It might be helpful to find a spiritual teacher who can assist you in connecting, however you need to learn to practice if for yourself. When this connection is strengthened, and you learn to trust it, you can accomplish your goals and plans so much more quickly it will feel like magic.
As you get more in touch with your inner spark of Creator Light, you build a spiritual strength and foundation. This connection with serve you well as a base for all that you do. When you have questions or need help, you get what you need faster. When the student is ready, the teacher will come. When you are ready, you will learn to trust this connection. When you master doubt, you will know what to do. Believe in yourself and your ability to connect with still wise centre.

Your Angel Guidance is to Connect with your Inner Guru for Guidance:

Make a commitment to yourself and your journey to connect each day for the next 21 days. Should you miss a day, begin again with day one and do this each day. Journal about your thoughts and feelings after you make your connection so that you can see your progress.
Take some deep breaths and relax your body and your mind. Go to your sacred space or special place to relax.  Connect with the divine source energy that dwells within you and every living being on this planet.  Spend time talking with and getting to know this part of you. As you do this you will learn to recognize the thoughts and feelings that come from this source.
Once you recognize your connection to your inner Guru, hunches, feelings, spontaneous and creative thoughts should be acted upon. The best way to accomplish this is through prayer and meditation. Wherever you are, whatever you may be doing, whomever you may be with, the Guru within you is guiding you. It is instructing you with guidance on what is best for you to do. Make time to Listen and then make your plans and your choices from this great inner source of wisdom and knowledge.

Time for A Solstice Review


Our sun has just past the marker and we have now entered the Yin of the year and it is the perfect time to do a review.  Here are some questions to ask yourself as you plans for the next season:
yin-and-yang-1947878_960_720
As you look back over the past six months what has happened in your life? What are some of the results you have achieved with your plans? The yin of the year is considered the feminine aspect according to Chinese astrology. Yin is the dark half of the yin and yang symbol. It means the shady place, and it is cold, wet,  and yielding. But yet, there is always a bit of yang in the yin, and a bit of yin in the yang so always look for the balance as you review.

Review what you have achieved since the Winter Solstice.

What has gone well? Take a look at your plans and see how they manifested. Look at all the areas of your life that you feel good about and are happy with the way they are proceeding.
How will I celebrate my outer achievements? Did you take the time to celebrate the steps along the way? Sometimes when you look at the progress you have made in your attempts at achieving helps you to feel better about results that are yet complete.
Who has helped me and how can I show my gratitude to them? Recognize the people in your life who have supported you along the way.
Which seeds have failed to germinate and how would I do things differently to ensure success next time? See the gift in seeming failures as these are the gifts to show you a better way.

Your Angel Guidance is to plan what you want to incubate in the yin phase of the year:

What do I wish to encourage in my life over the next half of the year? Make some plans and write them down so during the winter solstice you can do a review and see the results more clearly.
What do I want to nurture and develop in myself over the coming months?
What's important to me? Take a really deep look and be sure that the dreams you are holding for yourself are yours. Oftentimes we do things out of tradition or obligation and it is time to do things that are important to you.
Which projects do I want to prioritize? Pick a few things that are most important to you. Think about smaller projects and bigger ones, and then work on both. The smaller projects offer faster rewards to help keep you motivated for the bigger ones.
What do I want to harvest and what will bear fruit? Take a look at your projects and see which ones are working and which ones aren't. This is the time to adjust the ones that are not working for you or try something different. The solstice is the perfect time to renew your commitments as well.

Tons of love, Sharon and the angels xoxox

Carpe Diem Style

Carpe Diem Style

 To Seize the Day is to honour your life and live it well, so lets look at ways to live life “Carpe Diem Style”. Living for today is really all you have. This can be difficult for us to understand. When you are caught up in the future or the past, you are not in the space to getting caught up in your now.
Choose today to seize the day and make the most of what you have.
marcus
“When you arise in the morning, think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love… By Marcus Aurelius.

Open your eyes, look around, see beauty, see love, and take a deep breath in. Start your day ‘Carpe Diem Style’. Start with an attitude of of knowing you can choose to see life as an adventure and do
it.  You can set the tone for the rest of your day and choose to remind yourself of this intention throughout your day.

Things won’t always go your way, and that is okay when you have made the most of your day. “Be
present, be in love with your life. Every Minute of it.” Jack Kerouac

IMG_2358

You have a gift, which is called ‘today.’ It is a gift that allows you to see all the beautiful things in the world, have fun, love, and experience being loved. Make the most of your time. Make the most of each moment you have with each other, and make the most of your day today and every day.

Tons of love, Sharon and the angels xoxox

Choices ~ It’s not about them

Choices ~ It’s not about them


I found another wonderful quote about the choices we make. I often share a similar message with clients when they are on a path where they feel alone or not supported by those they love. Others don’t always understand your choices, but they are your choices and it is your life, so it is not up to them to understand or approve.

bfae45c1ef738883be244f384703f66b
It also goes without saying that supporting those you love,  regardless of the path they choose is good advice. It is not about you. As the beautiful guide Mother Theresa once said…”Love them anyway.”
There are many paths up the mountain, choose the one that speaks to your heart.

Your angel guidance is:

Honour your heart. Honour your choices and don’t worry what others are doing or think about you or the choices you make. These decisions are yours to make. It is always good to look at others motives in the advice they give you, but it is not about them.

Today I am Luminous

TODAY I AM LUMINOUS. I LOVE my Body...I found this amazing affirmation statement online and thought it was fantastic.
"Today I am Luminous. I love my body, this incredible and complex vessel that is me. I am in awe of my body's ability to heal, to nurture, to transform, to love and to flourish with vibrant health, divine energy and radiant feminine (or Masculine) beauty. I see the perfection in every one of my cells and honour this physical vehicle that I have been blessed with!"  And so it is.

Powerful words, especially if at first your don't feel them about yourself. This is a powerful tool of transformation. Make a copy and keep it your bathroom and say it to yourself everyday. Use it and let it do its magic and take the angel challenge:

Your Angel Guidance is...

Read this statement out loud to yourself every morning for 21 days. Write it on some card stock and carry it with you and read it throughout the day to yourself. If you miss a day, begin again at day one. Notice any changes in your life. Keep a journal about any thoughts and feelings that emerge. This will help you to see any blocks or resistance you might have.
Give it a whirl and let us know how it goes, we would love to hear about your experiences.

Tons of love, Sharon and the angels xoxox
