What is Your New Year's Tradition?

By Michelle:
Our new "I AM Mother" mandala.
We are less than a week away from New Year’s Eve. It’s a big day for a lot of people. I host a big party with all of my friends and their kids every year. It’s a fun way to bring in the New Year.
While I do enjoy my outward, extroverted fun on New Year’s, I also spend some time every year going inward. I told you last time about my Word of the Year tradition and now today I want to tell you about another tradition I partake in.

When I was attending Integrative Nutrition, Joshua, the head of the school, asked us to write a letter to ourselves at the beginning of our classes. We were to write out our goals for our time in the school, what we hoped to accomplish, who we wanted to become, and what we wanted to release.

On our last weekend of the class we were asked to read them and see how much of it fit our current reality. It was amazing to me, much like the Word of the Year practice, that there were so many things that had evolved over that year. It almost felt like magic.

Years later I still like to do this exercise only now I like to do it as a New Year’s tradition. I start out by looking over my letter from last year. I reflect on what has happened that I hoped for, what didn’t happen, what could have used some improvement and what was a total surprise.
Then I sit down and write a new letter to myself filled with love, inspiration, dreams, goals, and plenty of whimsy. I get in touch with how I want to feel at the end of that next year and who I want to be. When I finish, I fold it up, decorate it with some cute little hearts and tuck it away for another year.

It’s a lovely tradition that is just for me and I would like to share it with you. Feel free to borrow it and let me know how it goes for you.
Do you have any New Year’s traditions you would like to share with us?

Channel of Light

By:  Jill Marie

Whether you are an Emerging or Seasoned Lightworker, Wayshower, or Earthkeeper you are most likely feeling the call within to step more fully into your purpose.  This can look a million different ways and there is surely no need to quit your day job, unless that is what you are being called to do :)

If you have been working consciously as a Lightworker for a while now you are already familiar with this information so you might want to  skip this post;  however, I encourage you to keep reading as you may have some valuable information to share with those that are beginning to emerge as the next wave of Lightworkers  wake up more fully to their role.  If you do have valuable information to share we  invite you to leave a comment below with your suggestions and insight for others.

In Truth each and every one of us is a  Lightworker.  The question becomes more of what is your role to play, what are you willing to do, and what guidance are you being given?  You will either be feeling the collective disharmony and fear that is circulating the world or perhaps you can feel the evolutionary impulse of a new beginning with much excitement and anticipation in the air, or most likely a combination of the two.

Just by being aware and present and keeping yourself in a higher vibration you are helping to ground more Light into this world. ~ You are a Channel of Light for Humanity ~ that is the message that the Universe wants you to embrace and embody.  You don't need to be perfect, your whole life doesn't need to be in order and you don't have to have mastered the Universal Laws to do great things in this world and be of tremendous benefit to the whole.

Inner Alignment is the key to connect with your Inner Wisdom and that is what will guide you along your way.  For many this has been a difficult year mixed in with some great joy.  Know in your heart that you are not alone and you are fully supported in ways that you might not be able to imagine.

Open your Heart and tune into your True Essence as you step into your work as a consciousLightworker.  Trust and know that you are being guided each step along the way.  If you don't already have a meditation practice but have been planning on starting is the time.  Look at it as tuning into the very Source that will provide the much desired direction you are seeking.

There are many tools to aid you along the way such as meditation, prayer, energy work, crystals and gemstones, sound vibrations from harmonic tuners, toning and vibrational alignment music, Inner Alignment Mandalas, and so much more.

As an example, one of the ways I am currently being called to Channel more Light into the world is to combine a mandala with gemstones and do Quantum Level Frequency sessions.  I set up a mandala  for each individual event, person, or group that I am guided to and use the gifts of the mandala, gemstones and energy work to anchor higher dimensional frequencies and amplify them in a way that is for the highest and greatest good for all.  This may seem simple and it is also very, very powerful and effective.

This is just one of the ways Lightworkers all over the world Channel their healing Light for the benefit of Humanity.

  What way are you being called?

Earlier this week I saw this video posted on FB and I knew it was essential to include here for you to view.

Seeing you as the Light that you are ~ Namaste

What is the Word?

By: Michelle

For several years I’ve been partaking in the Word of the Year Tradition. For those of you who don’t know, it pretty much takes the place of New Year’s Resolutions. Instead of choosing a bunch of things you swear you are going to do in the next year only to put them aside within the first month or more likely the first week of the year, you choose one word to be the theme for your upcoming year.

Last year my word was “responsibility.” I had chosen the word because I had a theme throughout my life and my family’s life where I was either taking on too much responsibility or not enough. It was an unusual choice but it fit for me.

The really cool thing about this practice is how you start out the year really paying attention to your chosen word and how to make changes and just like resolutions go, the energy seems to fade away shortly after. BUT…it’s not really the case. Your intention for the word seems to act like a spice in the soup of your life and you find it flavoring everything you do without even realizing it.
Looking back over the last year I can see all the places where I have stepped up and become a much more responsible person. I now enjoy making lists and completing the items so I can cross them off. I hit my deadlines, I’m more focused, and my energy just feels more responsible all around.

I’ve also notice the places where I have been able to step back a little and allow my children to step up and take some responsibilities around the house. It has made a world of difference.

When I originally wrote this blog post I had chosen a word of the year for 2013 and then my dearest friend Carrie put out a Word of the Year Companion Guide and it was so amazing that I changed my word of the year! I cannot tell you how helpful it was to go through her guide and get clear on my chosen word. It was like laser pointed clarity and I am so grateful to have the guidance. I wholeheartedly recommend this guide and I want to let you know that this is not an affiliate link, I just believe in her take on the process.

So my new word that I created is so much richer and so much more appropriate for 2013. The word is Soar. It encompasses all of what I am looking to accomplish in the coming year in all areas of my life. I thought about several other words and then I realized that Soar incorporates all of them and so much more!

I think it is so funny that about this time last year I made the intuitive painting above and the idea of the word Soar was born and now almost a year later I am embracing the word to guide me into the next year. It's amazing how these things can go full circle.

I had originally listed several ideas on how to come up with a word of the year for yourself and I realized that my orinal method didn't quite offer the depth that Carrie's method has. I know that there is power in this practice and I want you to choose a word that will inspire you to grow and become more of who you really are. Some of you will know right away what your word will be and for those of you who might need a little guidance I would like to encourage you to head over to Carrie's website and get her guide.

Do you have a word of the year chosen? What is your experience with this practice been like in the past? I would love to hear how this practice has worked for you in the past.

Here is to ushering in the new year with your own special word of the year.!

Is It Time To Bedazzle Your Toolbox?

By Jill:
My Bedazzled Toolbox
Saturday I was on a coaching call with one of my clients and she asked what tools she could use, if needed, for her upcoming trip to visit her family.  I kind of laughed out loud because her Guides showed me a toolbox that had been Bedazzled!  They wanted me to remind her that she already has so many tools and all she needs to do is look in her toolbox, pick one, and then  implement it.  We talked about what she felt would work best for her and she left prepared with her tools should she need them.
That got me thinking not only about my own toolbox but yours too.  I'm guessing that you already have your own and it might even be pretty darn full at this point on your journey.  You have probably invested a lot of time, energy and money to get it so full...  I know I have!
Here's the million dollar question though...How often do you actually use those tools?  Do you even know what is in there?  
Some people believe that doing their inner clearing work is done and I am so happy for them.  Maybe a wee bit jealous too because I'm just not there yet.  In order for me to be at the level of Inner Alignment that I am most comfortable at, and then continue to evolve and expand, I still have stuff that gets in the way that needs to be let go of and healed.  Remember that the word healing means ~  to return to wholeness.
Whether it is old mindsets, habits that no longer serve me, fear of lack and limitation, feeling vulnerable or self-conscious, anxious or depressed or plain old not feeling good enough ~ I know that something is ready to be released and transmuted if it doesn't move through me easily.  That's when I reach into my toolbox and pick something that will help me re-align ASAP.  If stuff begins to cause disharmony and dis-ease in my life then I know I waited  a bit too long and I better go for the power tools!
Thanks to my client's Guides I decided to have some fun with this and Bedazzle my own toolbox and take inventory of what is in there.  I couldn't wait to share it with you! 
I invite you to have some fun with this and create your own symbolic toolbox and of course...Bedazzle it.  You can go out and pick up some fun items to make your toolbox or you can probably find something in your house that will work wonderfully.  You can even draw one and decorate it with colored pencils, crayons or markers if you want.  
Once you have the items to create your toolbox be sure to make a list of all the tools you already have and put them in it ~  You might be surprised to see how many there are.  This is a good exercise to see and acknowledge all the tools you do have, and it also opens up your second chakra and gets the energy flowing.
I'm keeping my symbolic Bedazzled toolbox in my workshop with my "tools" in it and when needed I will set my intention to pick the most helpful tool, close my eyes and pick one up and then USE it.  

Who said "healing" can't be fun?
Here are some tools in my box:
  • Inner Alignment Mandalas
  • Soul Art
  • Radical Forgiveness
  • EFT
  • Sedona Method
  • Energy Work
  • Meditation
  • Affirmative Prayer
  • Journaling
  • Paining/Artwork
  • Dance/Movement
  • Calling a Like Minded Friend
  • Crystals
  • Oracle Decks/Tarot/Runes
  • Akashic Records
  • Affirmations
  • Read an Inspiring Book
  • Listen to Inspiring Music
  • Mantras
  • Ho'oponopono
  • Essential Oils
  • Conscious Breathing 

If you accept the invitation to create your own symbolic toolbox and Bedazzle it,  we would love to see pictures of  it and hear some of your favorite tools that you use.  Be sure to leave a comment when you're done and/or post a picture on our FB page at:
With Heart,

We have pulled together a special mix of amazing individuals with varied backgrounds and interests so there will be something for everyone. We have invited them to be creative and share in whatever way they feel inspired, whether that be a blog post, photographs, a piece of art, or video. We are so excited to share their creative talents, tips and ideas with you.
