Becoming Timeless SaTaNaMA

How do you measure time? Time is an illusion and is experienced in many different ways. There are two types of time, Chronos and Karios.We usually get caught up in Chronos or clock time. Our fast paced lives become rigid and inflexible. When we get caught up in clock time we miss out on all the magic.

The two types of time:
1. Chronos or chronological time that flows from past to present to future 
2. Karios time or God time where you can sink into the moment.

Chronos time examples are hurrying to beat the clock, feeling pressured by workload, getting caught up in running out of time, always fixated on how time is running out or how things are rushing forward.

Karios time is when you sip in a sunset, get lost in a daydream, feel timeless when you look up to see a flock of birds bank left in the sky or simply look in the eyes of your spouse, child or puppy and feel lost in the moment. It is easy to forget that time is a resource and we can harness it in new and different ways.

My favorite ways to measure time are
how long it takes to sip a cup of tea, watching an incense burn down to the bottom of the stick, how long it takes the tide to rise on the shore. Start to drop into the magic of time that nature provides us.

A way to rinse your relationship with time can be as easy as a moving Audra Meditation called Sa Ta Na Ma.
~ Sa means infinity, Ta means life or birth, Na means death of form or transformation and Ma means rebirth.

To practice, bring your hands to your lap palms facing up. Touch your thumb and first finger and chant Sa, then second finger to thumb and chant Ta, ring finger and thumb and chant Na and finally little finger to thumb and chant Ma. Repeat this at your own pace for ten minutes or more to feel the rhythm of time and timeless floating through your fingers.

For another way to experience floating in time here is a link to my remote viewing meditation which helps you to see 5 years into your future. https://insighttimer.com/growyourknowing/guided-meditations/remote-view-of-5-years-in-the-future

50 Tips for Self Love

Unconditional love means no strings attached. Love is the thing that we all are reaching for and trying to feel in our lives? Love can be hard and heavy but it can be beautiful and magical. The ultimate way to cultivate the feeling of unconditional love is to first have self love. I’m turning 50 this month and what I have learned, mostly the hard way, is that LOVE starts with self.

My birthday gift to you is 50 Tips For Self Love. I hope you find at least one or two ways you can love yourself more.  

1. Repeat after me, “I am enough!” You are your best resource and trying to spread yourself too thin will deplete your shine~ Honor your amazing spirit
2. Massage your hands
3. Massage your feet 
4. Drink more water and say happy words to yourself as you do – I love using adjectives! Amazing, terrific, caring, deep listener ect.
5. Take a bubble break – always take a break to blow bubbles, it creates a playful heart 
6. Drink detox and caffeine-free teas that promote rest and digestion 
7. Soak in a tub for at least 20 minutes twice a week 
8. Create a Joy Jar- Write on little pieces of paper things that spark joy in your life – it can be anything at all like hummingbirds, a light spring rain, your wife 
9. Mirror mantras – repeat positive affirmations to yourself in the mirror and smile while doing it. This creates a connection between the you, the I and the Ego Me. A great way for reflective discovery 
10. Do seated twists daily to rinse out the issues in your tissues 
11. “Do not push the river” this is one of my favorite sayings from Ralph Blum’s Viking Runes. Allow the river to flow as it is -you don’t need to go into hyper speed- if something is not ready, be patient 
12. Read poetry aloud, it is soothing to heart and mind 
13. Be your own DJ – pick the songs that lift you up and commit to listening to them at least once a week. When I was a DJ in Boston, I loved to watch music lift people up out of their chairs like dancing balloons!
14. High-five yourself in the mirror 
15. Buy yourself flowers 
16. Do two random acts of kindness weekly and try to not get caught- this is a way to add your zest into the world and grow your philanthropic wings
17. Forgive yourself more often
18. Listen to that voice inside your heart space and follow it
19. Get a massage once a month, once every quarter or at least twice a year 
20. Open up the space between your toes, it often holds doubt and worry
21. Lean your whole back body into a wall or surrender to the floor and feel the power of your spine
22. Receive a compliment with a “thank you”, no arguing
23. Own your Yes’s and No’s, do what you feel you can when you want to – do not allow yourself to be bullied or guilted into a task that hurts your soul 24. Follow your curiosity, pledge to be a lifelong learner
25. Do Butterfly Taps – take your right hand to your left shoulder and left hand to right shoulder and start to tap back and forth to thank your body for being alive
26. Honor your voice – use your words wisely
27. Let go of  saying “I’m sorry” when it comes from a place of lack 
28. Say three things you are grateful for each night before you sleep and let those happy thoughts dance in your dreams
29. Give yourself permission to pause – life is a process not a destination
30. Listen to a guided meditation to open your heart
31. Practice loving kindness 
32. Sleep in..when you can.. rest and renewal make a better you
33. Invite the wind to take a walk with you and be surprised at the magic you feel in the moment
34. Write yourself a letter every year on your birthday to celebrate how terrific you are
35. Forgive a friend or a family member who has hurt you – even if its in a letter you never send – allow space to open in your heart
36. Walk outside at least twice a week if you can for heart health
37. Take vitamins or supplements like D, C, B-complex for immune boosting support for your health and longevity
38. Take a social media break to let your brain rest – this helps with anxiety and mental angst
39. Do not explain yourself to others – be unapologetically you 
40. Let go of comparing yourself to others- honor your greatness
41. Clean out that clutter – let go of clothes from your closet, papers, emails and even stale relationships hanging out in your life – spring clean so you can shine inside and out
42. Be kind to yourself and others
43. One day a week take a vow of silence even if it is for 2-4 hours – allow your whole body to rest and not be going
44. Take a vacation  – one of the biggest wishes from the other side, they wish they took time to take time
45. Volunteer – it helps you connect with causes and people who matter
46. Count your blessings often and deeply 
47. Cry More – crying helps to release old stuck energies and allows flow to your nervous system  
48. Be open- never say never and allow miracles to manifest
49. Dance with a butterfly – move with these beautiful beings when they grace your path
50. Celebrate the unique being that you are 



 

Live your luminosity ..steps to evolve

This past year has certainly been challenging for the world. And with all the challenges there are glimmers of hope, bubbles of illumination. The World Café model, http://www.theworldcafe.com  brings people together to create conversations and to shift organizations. It has been utilized from as high as the UN to local community soup kitchens. What I have always loved about participating in these conversations is the opportunity to listen and contribute in new ways. When embarking upon conversations, the World Cafe invites participants to adopt models of thinking, what they call Café Etiquette. Perhaps in this time of transformation and creative collectives we could all learn from some of their ideas. 
On their website The World Café outlines their conversation etiquette which include the following. Maybe you could adopt some of their strategies in your everyday conversation. 
1. Focus on what matters
2. Contribute your thinking and experience
3. Speak from the heart
4. Listen to understand
5. Link and connect ideas
6. Listen together for deeper themes, insights and questions
7.  Play, doodle, draw
 
My life’s work has been about helping people flow into their state of luminosity. The earth is a luminous place, just watch a sunset or a whale leaping out of the ocean to kiss the air above.

I have dreamt about the earth since I was a child, I could feel earthquakes and storms far away and even years into the future. In the mid 1980’s, I won an honorable mention at a science fair with my greenhouse gas model. I remember when I presented, I started explaining things that we had not yet learned about. My young mind articulated systems that even my science teachers were stumped about. When asked where I obtained the information, my 12 year old voice stated “the earth told me”.

The fear in my body of geomagnetic storms and winter tornados filled my dreams. Space weather and The Space Force coming together to help make dynamic shifts in our world filled my mind most days. All along my guides have been very clear that we, as a human race, must embrace Pangea, when the earth was one super continent, and that one day the earth will come back together. I feel that this message, which has never stopped, for me is both literal and energetic. 

I now look at this time in our global transformation as an opportunity for us to rise to the challenge of climate change and grow the human spirit. Our light bodies contain deep wisdom and creative solutions, if only we have the courage to awaken our energetic knowing.

As a species, as an earth and as a global community, we are evolving and understanding the call for action to create an earth of vibrational peace and mutual respect for nature and each other. 

I am offering some deeply transformative classes that will help you awaken your subtle body which has more power than you could ever imagine. I call these classes Soul Evolution and they are based on leaving the linear behind. 

When I say linear action to luminous motion, what does that mean? Think about a child, they hardly ever do anything in a linear way. When they are brushing their teeth, setting a table or taking out the recycling aren’t they humming, skipping, laughing and simply being joyful? What happened to your child like heart? Have you lost your zest? Turning on the lights of your heart when you’re doing linear action can help you live a life that’s luminous.

You don’t know where to start? Here are some examples.

1. When you take a shower chant your chakra system. Starting from the base of your spine to the top of your head
Lam, Vam, Ram, Yam, Ham, KSham, Om 


2. While in a salt bath at the end of you day or work week, listen to whales on YouTube and imagine you are being held and supported by the oceans 

3.Park your car at the end of the lot. As you walk, with each step send love to the earth and invite the next person who follows in your steps to absorb your joy. 

4. When walking your dog or getting the mail hum “Somewhere over the rainbow” or “You are my sunshine”. 

5. As you are getting ready for a meeting, awaken your crown chakra to co-create outcomes and call on your source energy by using my 5 min crown chakra meditation. https://insighttimer.com/growyourknowing/guided-meditations/crown-chakra-meditation-8

My wish for you is to unlock the luminous that floats all around you – remember you are energy first! 

Be a Delicious Orb of Light!

With butterfly blessings,
Melissa 

Connecting with Spirit Guides and New Moons

Our world is full of transitions and transformations. When I am conducting sessions with people across the globe I feel their patterns, rhythms and cycles. Life is full of changes and transitions and it can be hard to face transitions and even identify what needs to be changed. As a world, we are facing extreme change and it may feel unsafe, scary, isolating and lonely. 

But you are not alone and we are not lost. We have the opportunity to connect on a deeper level to ourselves, to the spirit world and to the mystical energy that holds the fabric of our very earth in gravity.  We all have opportunities to evolve our way of living, being and relating to ourselves and each other. What an exciting time to be alive. 

I want to share with you two concrete ways that you can connect with two powerful tools. Spirit guides and new moons / super moons. 

We live in a dimensional reality. Have you ever had a daydream? A premonition? Dejavu? Have you had dreams of your loved ones who have passed on that feel so real?  Have you lost yourself in a movie, a song, a book or a walk in nature?  All of these actions are about you traveling in time into experience.  For centuries people have used prayer, meditation, ritual and guided meditation to deepen their connection to the source – you may call source the universe, God, Higher Power or perhaps nature. It is where you feel connected, the way you feel that you are part of the one. 

We are not alone. Since a small child I have been visited by angels and spirit guides, but I am not unique. We all have the ability to access their guidance. All you have do is keep an open mind and relax your body, mind and spirit. I have two ways to assist you in accessing your own spirit guides, like a gps I will teach you to awaken your connection to your spirit team. 

One way is guided meditation.  Here is the link to Meet Your Spirit Guides meditation: https://youtu.be/DPHL1fIlnG0

The second way is to join me for a class via Zoom on How to Meet Your Spirit Guides. Learn how to invoke your connection with the spirit guides using color, sound and symbols. October 20th at 7pm EST is the next opportunity to take this class. Here is a link to register: http://www.melissaboyd.net/event/meet-your-spirit-guides/#tribe-tickets

New Moon Manifesting Ritual 


We are  magnetic and can attract and manifest things into our lives. Each month we have a new moon which carry with them the ability to create and manifest.  The astrological signs are connected with these moon cycles and have been used by ancient cultures to make decisions, plant crops, plan weddings and even travel across the seas.  This wisdom is still there and often untapped by humanity today. How does it work? Each month during the new moon you take a piece of paper and write down manifesting statements relating to the areas the new moon rules over. Start each manifesting statement with I AM, see the statement as true and as you write, feel the outcome. (You can write 6-7 I AM creations per New Moon) Always use paper and a pen, not your computer, and put the date on the page.  Fold it up and put it in a jar, box or some sacred vessel and let the universe listen to your desires and truths. I highly suggest writing down the New Moon days in your schedule or on your calendar as not to forget these delicious days.   I love the work of Jan Spiller who has been teaching this process for over 3o years. Jan Spillers book, New Moon Astrology can help you dive deeper into this monthly practice.  

It is extremely rare for new moons to also be super moons.  The super moon occurs when the moon is at its closest orbit to the earth.  Remember, the moon creates the rise and fall of the tides,  your emotions and even the emotions of our world. Take time to be intentional, connect in with the energy of the moon and create a ritual around each new moon.  Remember, we are never really in control of anything except our reactions and our actions.

In divine loving service, 

You Are Abundant!

Dearest Awakened Heart, 

You are abundant! Your being is a spark of divine intelligence in motion.  It is so easy to forget that you are dynamic, flexible, adaptable, and ever-evolving.

There is a trap in the linear world that tells us “you are not enough and you won’t ever be enough, there is not enough money, food, or resources for all of us!” This creates the story of “Us versus Them,” good or bad, rich or poor, and on and on and on. It creates an internal dialogue of fear and anxiety. 

But what if you changed your story and embraced the truth, which is You are Abundant. You can have everything you need and want! But it has to start from within you.

You may be reading this and wondering, how can I thrive in a pandemic? How can I create abundance when the world is falling apart? Consider that this  pandemic is an opportunity to love deeper, clearer, calmer, to learn to live for the moment. The world is shifting and shining the truth on outdated systems and ideas. What a fabulous time to be alive and evolve.  We have a unique opportunity to claim abundance within. 

3 Ways to embrace your own abundance:

1. Thank your bank account each time you pay a bill
2. List three structural things that support your well being (Home, car, bed, running water etc)
3. Do one thing each day or each week to spread abundance: leave a penny, dime or quarter in the little bin at the register, pay for someones coffee, give a compliment to a stranger, say thank you to your teachers, nurses, doctors etc. 

Appreciation is the key to manifesting and living an abundant life. 

Over the next three months I am offering unique programs to assist you in resetting what abundance means to you and to help you empower your life, embrace the power of your breath and your body. To truly shine your divine self!

Divinity Dives

Have you ever dove head first into your dreams? Have you ever leapt empty handed into the void only to build your wings on the way down? Nine years ago I took the plunge, I call it my Divinity Dive. 
I had been reading people’s energy and loved ones in spirit since I was nine years old.  I had used my intuition in my work in governmental affairs and non-profit management and 10 years ago I spontaneously came out as a Medium on a Maine political television show and soon after people in politics started asking for sessions.  

Then I literally put my future in the hands of my guides and a cardboard sign and it changed my life! I had a very safe and stable position as a lobbyist, I was helping to make deep change in the system representing disability rights, mental health, helping to boost budgets of environmental nonprofit organizations and yet I knew deep inside of me that my soul path was to do my mediumship and soul evolution readings full-time. There is never a  good time to blow up your life, to walk away from a career where you have gained a high caliber reputation and to begin again. When I say to you being a medium was not my choice I mean it! It has always been a part of me but I was always so afraid to take that leap that leap of faith.

I had told three people that the only way I would do this for work was if I met James Van Praagh and he told me to do mediumship full time. Then 10 years ago he came to the Omega Institute in New York. It was at a time when I didn’t have extra money to spend on a workshop but three people, who didn’t know each other, each sent me money that totaled the exact amount I needed for the workshop.  

So off I went to the Omega Institute to meet the man that I had watched on television when I was 15 years old to do the thing that I’ve always been able to do. Within two days of starting the workshop he pulled me up on stage and had me read a person in the audience, after I finished my reading he leaned into me and said, if you can ground down into your divine being you can do this. But you must have no fear and trust absolutely, which means quitting your job and doing this full time. His words felt like warm sunshine on my face and I knew what I had to do.

I returned to Maine and went to my boss Betsy Sweet, who is currently a Democratic Candidate for US Senate, and told her that I needed to leave my position. I loved my work, I loved making a difference but it was time for me to make a difference in a different way.  I left Augusta to drive back home, which is about an hour. As I was driving I was thinking about Omega and the words James had said to me. Thinking, is this real? Is this the right thing to do? And just as I was about to turn around and go back to Augusta and say “wait I made a mistake!” my guides said to me “keep going we have a sign for you just around the next bend”. As I came around the corner I saw an egg truck and on the back it said OMEGA and I knew exactly what I needed to do.

I came home and told my wife I had left my position. She was shocked and little nervous but said “if you can make $5000 by the end of the summer then we can pay our bills.” I had decided to take on a small position to make $800 to do some environmental canvassing. I drove to work one day and at a stoplight I got rear ended. I went to the hospital to get checked out and they said I was fine. I had my car checked out and it was fine also. The next morning I got a call from the insurance company. They said we heard that you got hit in an accident. I said yes, they said are you OK? I said yes. They said, how does $5000 sound for pain and suffering?? And I said yes;) 

The next morning my guides had told me I would have a free office on Main Street in Kennebunk. Free office? How is that even possible? But I’ve learned by now to trust my guides. Later that day I went to an art gallery to meet a friend. When I literally I bumped into a woman in the bathroom and spilled coffee on her she said are you coming to the open house?  I smiled and asked on Main Street in Kennebunk? She said yes, how did you know? I then saw bees in my mind and she said it’s called The Hive and it is a collaborative for local artists. I asked her if she had an Intuitive Medium to do readings.  She said no, do you know someone? Yes, me! She said we cannot pay you. I said no worries I’ll just come for free. I sat in the back on a folding chair at an old card table with a deck of cards and my crystal.  I read for 45 people that night! Back to back 20 minute sessions for what seemed like everyone in town. At the end of the evening she asked, where is your office? I don’t have an office yet but this is what I do. She said we’re trying to create a nonprofit do you know anybody who could help us do that?  My job, previous to being a lobbyist, was creating nonprofits across Maine and Massachusetts and working  with national campaigns.  Yes! She explained we can’t pay you but we could give you a key and you could open the door and help us with this and we would give you the office in the back for free. How does that sound?? I was dancing with the light!

I still had no way of attracting clients so I went into my recycling bin and I took a piece of cardboard and wrote “Readings by Melissa, inquire inside” I had two folding chairs, a card table and a candle. That was nine years ago and within six months I was booking six months out all by word-of-mouth.

I took the leap of faith with my cardboard sign and everything fell into place! I want to personally thank each and every one of you for your support over the past nine years and for Growing your Knowing to awaken within! 

How can YOU do Divinity Diving? 

1. Listen to your heart and ask for help from your higher power and/or guides?
2.  Allow nature to bring you signs from birds, numbers, rainbows and whatever speaks to you.
3. Remember, you are part of the whole of creation and once you quiet your mind and listen synchronicity will appear. 
4. Be open for extraordinary messages through other people
5. Be grateful for where you are and allow the unfolding of your true self to emerge 

I love offering workshops to give you hands on tools and activities to become more centered, energized and intuitive.  Here is a short video on how I teach workshops:  https://growyourknowin.wpengine.com/workshops/

May you be ONE and live in the NOW,

Melissa 

Navigating Geomagnetic Storms & Solar Winds

I’ve always been fascinated by the sun, the beauty of the earth and the possibilities of the stars. When I was 9 my father and I built a mini greenhouse for the science fair on the greenhouse effect. I would ask my science teachers questions about the magnetic field and what’s going to happen when the sun starts creating solar flares and the winds from the sun effect the earth and what will we do about the cracks in the magnetic field?? They said that will never happen! That was almost 40 years ago, and today we are experiencing solar flare activity, solar winds and cracks in the magnetic field. Geomagnetic storms are becoming mainstream and research shows that some people and animals can feel the effects.

The geomagnetic storms, which are caused by the solar flares and solar winds, are causing massive upheavals including electromagnetic activity which disrupts radio communications, causes radar to malfunction and power blackouts, solar winds that disrupt the internet and cable tv. The storms also cause issues in our physical bodies such as  tension, aggression, vertigo, and can also enhance intuition.

I’m telling you this not to scare you but to empower you. As our earth shifts we have the opportunity to connect with both the earth and the magnetics of the earth. And as the earth is changing we have the unique opportunity to shift our perceptions and adapt to new solutions. A great resource for more information is Spaceweather.com>

So how can you actually help the earth and impact the magnetic field?

1. The Heart Math Institute teaches how our own magnetics can shape the earth and impact our environments.https://youtu.be/5-Vk6ITY5iA

2. There are innumerable ways to reduce carbon emissions, here are just a few.
a. walk and bike when you can
b. reduce your intake of dairy and beef
c. Carpool whenever possible
d. turn off the lights when your not home 

3.  To reduce the physical effects of the geomagnetic storms carry a piece of Orgonite and/or keep one next to your bed. Orgonite is a substance that is made of quartz and resin developed by Dr. Wilhelm Reich, who has a town in Maine named after him. Orgonon Maine!
 
4. Talk to a tree. Connect to the roots of the earth and have gratitude for the earth. 

5. Raise your vibration through eating superfoods and greens, listen to Solfeggio tones, and love with abandon.

6. Read A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle.

We are living in an amazing time when our collective energy can shift the earth!

May you be ONE and live in the NOW,

Healing Power of Mediumship: An Interview with Val Williams

In 2016, I planned a trip to England to study at the Arthur Findlay College of Metaphysical Studies, the world’s foremost school on psychic development. I had been there the year before and it was transformative. It’s a very magical and spiritual place with grounded, fabulous teachers from around the world. Weeks before I was set to leave, I was jolted from a sound sleep at 3:30 one morning by a bubble of blasting yellow light. From it spoke my beloved guides: “Val Williams,” was all my guide said.

So in the dim pre-dawn light I raced to my computer and typed it in; she was teaching a course at the Arthur Findlay College one week before I was scheduled to arrive! I immediately registered, changed my flight, and returned to bed.

That morning at my office I sat with a new client. Before he left he said, “You MUST meet Val Williams.” He went on to tell me how she changed his life with her compassionate soul and the training course he attended.

I reached Arthur Findley in a state of expectation. From the moment Minister Val Williams opened her mouth I knew I was on my divine pathway. At that point, I’d had many spiritual teachers, including the Dalai Lama, but she clearly outlined my current circumstances, described my guides, and warned me about taking on too much. But more importantly, I discovered she was the voice I’d been hearing throughout my childhood. When I told her as much, she explained that for years she would sit in meditation and send out bubbles of light and love to children around the world who were in difficult situations. Although many people have reported meeting her in this spirit form, she has no memory of these encounters.

I believe that there are guideposts in this life that help us to overcome and stay the course. Val Williams was that for me. She came into my life at a time I was healing my relationship with my father as he was dying. This experience to date has been one of the most profound of my lifetime.

I am honored and humbled to interview this beautiful soul who is living a life of being of service and traveling the world to help others heal through her gifts of mediumship.

My Interview with Val Williams can be found on my homepage just below my blog posts!

Val has been serving spirit all her life and has been conducting readings and platform demonstrations for nearly 35 years. She is compassionate, truthful and offers advanced trainings to mediums around the globe. She is the author of “Two World as One” and has meditation CDs. Minister Williams also gives to charities around the globe to help children and hospice, among others. She is a member of the SNU and teaches at the Arthur Findley College of  Metaphysical Studies and other schools around the globe.

In her own words “I was born with gifts of mediumship which, as a child, seemed more of a curse than a gift – voices in my head spoke of events which later happened, and when grown-ups spoke I would know if they were telling the truth or not. Many times my speaking my mind earned me a smack and so I became quite defiant – loyal to my mediumship, but not willing to tell people what I was thinking.”

“The development of mediumship should be a joy, and since the age of 33, when I found my way to a Spiritualist church every day has held its own joys. Working with and for Spirit fills me with a sense of purpose and the need to promote the truths of the Spirit world encourage me to always work in the name of truth. Whether I am working privately, or within workshop situations, or doing public demonstrations of mediumship I have only one goal – to be accurate and true to those who trust me.”  – Minister Val Williams  http://www.internationalmedium.co.uk/

Embrace Unconditional Love

How may times do you read a contract, sign up for a service, and have to read the fine print “Terms and Conditions.” We live with conditions everywhere, we get trapped in our conditions. We hear the weather conditions, and complain when it’s raining. But ask the flowers and the rivers what they think, they will be tickled that the rain is coming! Nature is love, it offers us the opportunity to drink in each moment. Love is unconditional if we would only allow our hearts to be like the river instead of a brick wall.

Buddhism reminds us that lasting is the goal, lasting values are a deep awareness that lead to unconditional joy, unconditional love, and a state of pure enlightenment. We need to use unconditional as an action word. Once we let go of falsehoods and conditions, we rise in unconditional bliss.

Unconditional means no strings attached. Think about what it would feel like to experience deep joy, health, happiness, and zest  for life with no conditions!?  Your love, your joy, your giving, your energy, your light does not have to be conditional! Unconditional is timeless, like stardust it never gets old. It renews and awakens your pure spirit.  We are unconditional spirit beings visiting this planet for a short time. Let go of conditions and sink into unconditional bliss.

In the linear world, we are taught to react and respond. Many times, our reactions and responses are outside of ourselves and are actions based on linear steps. For example: Your alarm goes off in the morning… you turn it off…you get up…you brush your teeth…you make your coffee…you turn on the news…you find out what’s happening in the world…etc. etc. etc. In this example, you are basically going through motions and responding/reacting on auto-pilot. In auto-pilot, our brains can wander to worst-case scenarios, what-ifs, and frustrations.

Now imagine this instead: You wake up in the morning to the sound of the birds chirping…you easily roll out of bed…you intentionally place your feet on the floor…you go into your meditation room…you drink a glass of water…you read something inspirational and get ready for your day. In this example, you are taking intentional action to set the tone for your day.
It really is a choice. The power of intentional action comes from the heart, from opening up your power and being present. Intentional action comes from love and it requires concentration and awakening.

Take time each day to awaken your heart space. Here are three ways to do this:

1.Touch a part of nature each day. Breathe in the sun, touch a tree, smile at the ocean, pick up a rock, follow a bird or a butterfly with your eyes. Remember, you are part of the divine plan.

2. Smile at 5 people and as you do send light telepathically from your into their heart.

3. Write a letter or a card to a family member, friend or send a thank you card to an organization that helps the planet (a conservation trust, a river coalition or an animal shelter.)

Unconditional love is who you are – it’s who you will be when you return to the light after you complete your life this time.  Why wait until you cross over to the other side? Release conditions now and know that love is who we are.

I find this 15 minute meditation from Adyashanti on unconditional love very powerful.  I hope you enjoy this https://youtu.be/Gy0S2ZrtWwQ.

With unconditional love,

Happy 2019 – What To Expect And More

Happy New Year!  Every day you have the unique opportunity to decide what you will think, feel, focus on and create in your life.  One of the reasons intentions and rituals are set around the New Year is we enter a significant new cycle. In fact, New Years has been celebrated since 46 BC and was introduced by Julius Caesar. It is no accident that the winter solstice happens about a week before Christmas and that in early January the Earth is closest to the Sun. This is the time the earth is resetting itself and so can we.  If you pay attention to the skies you may have noticed that over the past week the Sun is deeply radiant, especially at dawn and dusk and you too are a radiant being of the universe.  WE are all energy beings and more and more science and spirituality are lining up with these beliefs.

In previous blogs and on talk radio interviews I have shared my guides insights for 2019 and beyond. Let me first say, to remember we are in shifting times. This means that extremes are the norm and we need these in order to change, we do not change our view point when things are smooth and easy.  2019 is shown as a year to be creative, to delve into your passions, have more meaningful conversations, connect to like-minded people and to spend as much time in nature as you can.  Pay attention to the earth and sky, new colors will take shape in plants, flowers and even the grass. Appreciate and pay attention to water, it is amazing and can be a calming  yet powerful resource. Earth changes will be many but mostly with water and air. About 5 years ago, I spoke about the increase of solar flares and the shift in gravitational waves which changes dimensional time.  I see these time waves increasing and creating vortex’s where there have not been any. In energy medicine and quantum physics it is known that it only takes about 250,000 people with high vibrations to shift outcomes such as storms, crime rates and even severe situations like natural disasters. WE , You and I, have more power than WE realize.

The universe is expanding and collectively more and more people, including you, are AWAKENING to intuitive knowing and even remembering past lives. It is time to be bold and bright and be the light that you are in all that you do.  Have faith that we are evolving as a world.  You have tremendous power to shift the world by the way you speak, listen, spend, forgive, love and live.  #AWAKEN

All the love and light in me bows and shines to all the light and love in you!

In divine loving service,

Melissa
