It's Fabulous Fire Friday! What does that mean? you wonder. Every Friday I pull an oracle card from @thelolapickett Empath Power deck that will help you focus your inner fire to strengthen your energy boundaries. And what better time to start than today, lucky Friday the 13th in the light of the full moon? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐ŸŒ•๐ŸŒ•๐ŸŒ• And what better timing than during the holidays when EVERYONE'S energy (both bright and dark) is amped up?! So so important to set boundaries. We don't need to carry the weighty energy of others. We've got our own load to carry. Today's card helps empower us to feel safe in experiencing our feelings. The words we tell ourselves are so powerful. Let's choose ones that strengthen and lift us up! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ”ฅ #setboundaries #energywork #fabulousfirefriday #whatsmine #whatsnotmine #fridaythe13th #fullmoon

Grateful for Growth

The easy thing to say is: be grateful. After all, itโ€™s Thanksgiving season. The time when we are called to appreciate the things of this life. Be grateful. Be thankful. When November hits, these messages are everywhere we turn.

Easy to say, but do you mean it? How do you express gratitude? How do you show it? How do you feelit? What about the not-so-nice things? Can you be grateful for those? Can you be grateful for the officer who pulled you over and ticketed you because he says you didnโ€™t use your turn signal, when, in fact, you did? Can you be grateful for the experience of showing up in court to speak with the fast-talking donโ€™t-look-them-in-the-eye prosecutor who tells you that the fine just increased by an additional $250 for simply showing up in court? Iโ€™ll be honest. Thatโ€™s a tough one.

But think of it this way: every experience we have is there to help us learn and grow. To expand and evolve as spiritual beings having a human experience. (Why on earth would we want to evolve?? Hahaha! I make jokes.) No one said growth was pleasant or comfortable. Yes, sometimes those human experiences are difficult, painful, even traumatic. But there are gorgeous ones too. Like the daybreak on the beach with no one else around. Or watching someoneโ€™s eyes light up from within just because you said hello. (Oh, what a thing to be seen!) Or reading a poem that makes your body sing. But ultimately, itโ€™s up to you to decide whether you will learn from these experiences or not. If you choose to not grow (or if you are still working on your awareness skills and donโ€™t know any better), the universe will send you plenty more experiences over and over until you finally learn the lessons needed to evolve your spirit-soul. So, be grateful for these opportunities to grow.

Gratitude brings abundance. Always. And when itโ€™s hard to be truly grateful, simply say: thank you. And then watch what happens.

Iโ€™d like to take this time to say that I am grateful for all of you. For youโ€”yes YOU!– reading this. For sharing your presence with me, whether in class, in text/email exchanges, as my teachers, as students, as friends. Simply for just being. I appreciate you. Thank you for being in the world. And for being in my world.

I hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving full of love, light, and gratitude.
