Connecting With Something Bigger Than You

Everyone has their own way of connecting with something bigger than themselves.

For some, it means religion, while for others, it’s through connecting with nature, animals, or music.  From believing in the natural flow of the universe to seeing a higher power work through other people, there is no doubt in my mind that I am being guided by something bigger than me.

There have been times I’ve missed a train, noticed a street sign, or gotten a phone call that made me realize there was something out there working in my favor.

If I had gotten on the first train, I wouldn’t have bumped into an old friend on the second one.

Had I not spotted the street sign, I wouldn’t have thought of a potential writing topic.

Just as I was thinking of someone, they called.

My higher power shows me signs in my everyday life.

Not only do I believe in connecting with source energy- keeping my thoughts positive and my vibration high– but I also believe in being guided by angels.  Just the other day, after thinking about my Grandma Arlene, I found a dime and my lost Angelite stone under my bed while looking for a pair of shoes.

There are no coincidences in my life.

You never know why things happen the way they do, but you can take some comfort in knowing that they always find a way to work.

Just be open and aware- you may be surprised at what you find.

Here is an interesting video about feeling disconnected from the physical world when you experience a spiritual awakening.

And Still I Rise

The Boston I live in is a magical, mystical city full of beauty, promise, and joy.

I spent the weekend outside, enjoying the 66 degree weather along the Harbor. I took a stroll down the Greenway, admired the public art, and grabbed a coffee at Rowe’s Wharf.

The Boston I live in represents the potential that is accessible to all of us, whether it’s seizing the day or seeing the best in ourselves.

My beautiful Sunday afternoon reminded me that no matter how many times I may have fallen, made mistakes, or took a detour in life, I have the power to brush myself off, stand up, and rise.

I moved to Massachusetts over two years ago with a blank slate, and I have been able to discover my true self in the process. I have had the opportunity to dig deep into my soul and learn who I am, what I want to be, and where I want to go. I found my own beauty within, and I have noticed the beauty all around me as well.

Whether you’re raising your sails for a new adventure or picking yourself back up, you have the power to rise, too.

Just remember to slow down, breathe, and enjoy the beauty that is right in front of you.

New Moon In Aries: Take Yourself to New Heights


Happy New Moon in Aries!

Ah yes- a new cycle has begun once again.  It’s time to let go of the old, set intentions for the future, and open yourself up to infinite possibility.

The firey Aries energy supports us in lifting off to a new era- no more holding ourselves back.  Have you been thinking a lot about your hopes and dreams, but have resisted acting on them?

Now is the time to be bold- like the Ram.

We all have our moments when we question whether or not to fully walk in our truth, express our creativity, or pursue our passions, but with this energy, we will no longer second guess embodying our authentic nature.

For my own New Moon celebration, I treated myself to a new card deck- Cat Tarot!

Today’s Aries energy-fueled card of the day is The Star.  I love this tarot card- it is full of promise, purpose, and renewal.  The Star reminds us that although we have been through pain, challenges, or turmoil, we can bounce back from the past and shine even brighter in the days to come.

The Star is resilient- like the cat!

“Like Polaris, this card guides us to our personal true north. The cat pours out the water, perhaps to nourish the earth, perhaps to destroy the carpet. What matters here is the transformation (YES!). Things grow an change, and so do you. This is the path of healing, forgiveness, success. Carry on.”

What lifts you into this new era?🎈
