Do you have trust issues? (part 1)

I know it has been a while since we have connected. Truthfully, I have been in deep reflection. Even though I love my contemplation, I genuinely missed connecting with you! I did not reach out because I did not really have anything to say, but now I have something to share with you…It’s about trust. More specifically, self-trust, that sometimes elusive treasure that some of us never find.

Before I go any further, I want to disclose something. Trust—-particularly self-trust—has notoriously been a big deal for me. I used to be someone who was petrified of making a mistake. I used to be someone who was reluctant to move forward without proof. I used to check in with other people about what decisions I “should” make. These choices went right along with who was “safe” to love and what I needed to do to keep myself from being hurt.

Why did I do this?   Well, being a psychic little kid, I had a very *different* perception of what was going on. I would see things—-fairies, spirits, scary things, colors around people. I would know things—-things I was not supposed to know and did not know I was not supposed to know. I would feel people’s feelings in my body. I did not know what to make of my experiences, but one thing I knew for sure was that it was NOT what my family and friends were experiencing. I decided that I was wrong and I wanted to keep my perceptions a secret.  I was successful at this for many, many years…Until I wasn’t.

I will get into all of that another time, but for now: doesn’t it make sense why I would not trust myself?  After all, I had no external support or validation and I decided from a very young age that my experiences were wrong. This choice allowed me to constantly give my power away to other people—-my power away to my lovers, my friends, my family, and any authority figure.  Looking back, it was what was normal, but now living in that reality would be a perfectly self-created hell.

Ever since I chose to trust myself, I began to listen to myself intently. I saw that much of what I perceived was not the norm.  Instead of getting discouraged as I did as a small child and again as a person with low self-esteem, I now see that my unconventional way of seeing things—-not just seeing ghosts and auras—-is what really allows me to serve other people. Here is what I have found to be true about trust:

  • Trust has nothing to do with guarantees and trust comes with a different type of certainty.
  • Trust has nothing to do with whether or not things will go “according to plan.”
  • Trust is complete liberation and ownership of my life, my intentions, and my manifestations.

For me,  trust is about accepting my own inner wisdom, stating my intention, and moving forward with an open heart.

Have you ever wondered what your life and what your relationships would be like if you trusted yourself completely? What would you do more or less of?

Heal Your Heart, Awaken Love’s Power

Heal Your Heart, Awaken Love’s Power

Do you remember the first time you experienced heartbreak? Were you angry? Sad? Deeply Frustrated?

Or did you feel numb? Disillusioned?

Heartbreak is both deeply personal and universal. It is not limited only to romantic relationships either.

Heartbreak spans across all of your relationships—including the one you have with yourself. It can make its way into your professional life and into your habits for rest and relaxation. It can highly impact your health, your finances, and your general wellness. It can certainly contribute to having less than satisfactory experiences in your intimate relationships too!

When feeling heartbroken, you might feel disconnected. You may wonder, “why is this happening to me?” “What did I do wrong?” You might think, “Oh no!! Not this again!”

Even in those moments of where you feel you’re most disconnected, you could not be more connected to truth. At this moment, there are so many people who can relate to feeling disconnected—-whether they are feeling that way right now or have felt that way before.

This is the archetype of heartbreak. All of us, at some time or another, connect with this archetype.

We all know what it is to experience heartbreak and yet…

…Only a select few of us understand what it is to truly heal this heartbreak.

(Just because you are currently in a “good” relationship does not mean that the heartbreak has gone away. In fact, it could be showing up in other aspects of your life.)

The archetype of heartbreak is what drives me each day. Assisting my clients in healing heartbreak (whether it is a from a recent heartbreak or a heartbreak that spans years or lifetimes) is one of my specialties. Helping people heal heartbreak by digging into past lives and healing at the soul-level is one of my most favorite things to do!

See, the heart is one of the most powerful and one of the most under-utilized tools that humanity has. When your heart is healed, it fuels your mind to be at full capacity and it can do wonderful things for your health, relationships, and finances too!

Your heart is truly your greatest asset and ally. It is the epicenter of your creativity.

If your heart is on board with whatever it is you want to do, you will have the strength and determination to move mountains!

With all of this, why do you think people choose to go on without fully healing their hearts?

Why do some of us sweep our pain under the rug, cross our fingers, and hope for the best? Why do some of us wallow in our pain using it as a shield against being hurt?

(These are the questions that ignite me!!)

What I have found is that heartbreak is alive and well due to a unconscious to follow what I call “The Laws of Love.”

The “Laws of Love” are illusions that separate you from love. “Laws of Love” are grounded in fear, separation from Truth, and are fueled by a lack of self-worth and feelings of uselessness. The “Laws of Love” are driven by conforming to circumstances and rules that you do not really like or agree with.

To shed light on the Laws of Love and to contribute to the healing of the archetype of heartbreak, I created a video series—-think reality show/documentary—called “The Universal Love Story.”

Watch the trailer for “The Universal Love Story” here: https://youtu.be/Qm_ouHEGEqQ

By watching “The Universal Love Story” you will be enlightened to exactly what “The Laws of Love” are! You will find out how you can break these “Laws of Love!” And in doing so, you will connect more powerfully with your heart and contribute to the healing of collective heartbreak!!!

If this inspires you, please leave a comment on the video and share it with your friends and network!!

Thank you so much for reading. I will be in touch very soon with my own personal story of heartbreak and what is on the other side of healing it.

“The person you hate is actually an aspect of yourself that you hate.” 

I was with one of my spiritual mentors. The words that altered my entire world were spoken by her teacher.

At the time I was dealing with a lot of strong emotions. I felt that someone I loved was being treated horribly. I felt very angry. The situation seemed hopeless. I was very much consumed with a problem that did not directly affect me.

Those wise words got my attention. From that moment forth, I realized that if I did not start treating myself better—-how could I expect anyone to treat me or anyone I loved better?

All of us are connected.

The person you carry feelings of contempt or hatred toward represent a part of you in some form or another. And likewise, a person you love and admire represents traits that are either dormant or ignited within yourself.

Instead of judging your opinions or thoughts of another person, I invite you to love yourself and embrace the healing opportunity that this other person has brought forth for you.

The one-ness concept is a driving force in my newest project called “The Universal Love Story,” a video series that documents the lives of six people who courageously open their hearts to love and to the joyful creation of relationships and outcomes that reflect their heart’s desire.

If you are able to re-write your own personal love story and change the course of your life, then you play a role in the collective healing of “The Universal Love Story.”

That’s how powerful you are!
