Time to Adjust the Sails

Don’t you love January?  It’s a time of renewed energy and beginnings for most of us as we usher in a new year.  It’s a time of reflection about what happened in the previous year.  It allows us to gauge how far we’ve come and allows us to aim for new horizons.

This year in the Midwest we’ve had several challenges —we had the polar vortex come down and put us into a deep freeze (don’t you love these new-fangled terms that the media gives us??) and on a personally level, I’ve had a cold/flu for the last several weeks (the reason why I missed 2 weeks of blogs!) I’m hoping this crazy type of weather and bout of bad health isn’t indicative of what the new year is planning on bringing—how that for pessimism?

Say what??  Blake is being pessimistic.  That isn’t like her!

Okay, so I’m using that phrase as an example.  Whatever your current situation is—you can change it.  I have several situations that I want to change currently and I’m working on each one of them.  How?

To begin with, I wake up each morning with a prayer of appreciation and gratitude and then I set my intentions –a short list of what I generally would like to accomplish that day.  It helps me set the tone and mood for the day.  I also state that intent to have a good attitude about the day.

This simple exercise done in a thirty second space when I’m stretching and yawning my way to my feet, as I roll out of bed, helps me deliver the goods each and every day.  I end the day with another prayer of appreciation and gratitude; appreciating what I did accomplish that day without focusing on what I didn’t accomplish.

Law of attraction tells us that we have to focus on what we want and not what we don’t want.  Easy said than done.  So one aspect of the law of attraction that we’ll be looking at this year.

2014 is a year of refocusing, realigning and readjusting, the Divine Guidance Team tells me.  2012 started a movement, 2013 shook the place up and now we’re settling down with a renewed aim.  We’ll be exploring more of this new energy coming in as we continue into 2014.

We’ll be providing you with new tools and offerings to help you realign your energies, renew your focus and readjust your sails to move into the space you desire to go.  Come journey with us and discover your new worlds!

Love and Light Always,

3 Things to Do to Overcome Chaos

the-crystal-ball-WaterhouseHow did you manage to deal with 2013?
How can you overcome the chaos?
How has The Shift of 2012 affected you?

About 15 years ago, I managed to get a job as a computer analyst because the US government was nervous about the use of computers in the work place, especially for highly regulated manufacturing industries such as pharmaceutical companies.  Believe or not, the use of computers versus paper was once looked on with distrust.  As a result, there was a mass effort to high people with certain skill sets and train them to do with the enormous amount of regulations and paperwork needed at the time.  As it turned out, I had the proper skill set and fell right into place in this lucrative position.

That huge pile of regulations over time shrank as computers became more common place and finally business couldn’t live without them.  Now all those regulations came down to a 3 page document –a list of requirements and regulations needed if your computer system fell into a specific category—now something more rare than not.

It took time to go from frantic over regulation and in turn chaos, to a calmer place to now a relaxed way of doing business.  The processes and the attitudes of the regulations and new systems changed over time.

I bring this up, at the this time of year, because last year on December 21, 2012, light workers across the globe were being readied for SOMETHING BIG to happen on that pivotal day. 

Next week will be the 1 year anniversary of that date.   Since then many light workers have felt everything from nothing to nausea to joy to impatience to frustration to….well, you get the picture.  They have simply been all over the place in the lives.  We have dubbed this time period The Shift – because indeed it is a time of shifting changes—almost like blowing sands—going one direction one moment and another direction the next.

Personally we have experienced this activity going on for most of 2013.  It finally began to settle around the time of the fall equinox, when many have reported that celestial calmness finally came into play.

I know of many others whose lives have changed drastically this year.  Many have made their transition during this year or experienced someone else’s transition (death), many have lost or found jobs, moved, got married or divorced, started businesses or lost businesses.  Overall it wasn’t a particular non-active year for most of us.  We are in the midst of a shifting time which may bring chaos with it.  Just like many experienced about 15 years ago with changing technology and the regulations that went with it.  And just as that experience for those companies shifted with time, so shall our Shift.  As time goes on, the chaos will diminish and we will have better processes in place to deal with changing times. 

What can you do to help alleviate the chaos in the meantime?

  1. Turn off the news.  It’s not serving you well if you continually listen to and worry about what is happening outside of your own walls.  The same situations that are being played out in a dramatic daily fashion have been going on for thousands of years.  Countries fight, people die and politicians argue.  Unpopular laws are passed.  People lose money.  People make money.

Live your life outside of this daily drama.  Instead listen to happy music or neutral information.  Watch fun TV, not violent or drama that may stress you out. 

 

2.  Lighten Up.  You’re called a light worker because that is where you keep your energy –towards the lighter, more positive side of life.  Laugh more often.  Smile more often.  Give more often. You will be rewarded and you may make someone’s day.  The power of smiling and giving is tremendous.  And don’t forget to be good to yourself too!

 

3.   Ask the Angels for Help.  They can’t help you if you don’t ask.  And their job is to help you.  We forget to ask during the course of our busy day—but they get bored when we don’t ask.  They are there to help you lighten the load.  Ask for the small things or the big things—they can handle it all!  And you only pay with a positive asking and intent!  Otherwise all this help is Free!!!  So ask!

Next year the chaos will be less than this year.  More processes are being put into place; more results are being played out in a more positive manner.  Keep the faith and keep smiling.  Hold the Light and follow it.  You are making a difference, even when swirling changes are all around you.  Hold steady in the storm and keep the umbrella by you, for when you need it. 

Our world is changing –the direction it turns in is up to you.  Keep the positive going and the world will follow suit.  Or if you live in fear and chaos, your world will reflect those fears and provide more chaos for you.  If we all pull our own weight in being positive, the world will become a place not of chaos but enlightenment and wise knowing.
