Acceptance (AKA Making Eckhart Tolle proud)

I love my house. It’s not very big, it wasn’t very expensive and it’s been standing for over 10 decades. It creeks and has many cracks. It’s filled with mismatched furniture we have acquired mostly for free over the years. The floors never quite shine and there are light paw prints and tumble weeds of fur to be found throughout. But I LOVE my house. I love reorganizing the bookshelves, changing up the art on the walls, sitting in the porch with a cup of tea in the evening. I love the plants we try our best to keep alive, I love the backyard with the lilac bush and the front yard with its elm trees. I really love this house. Having resonated with the likes of Eckhart Tolle, I’m hesitant when I find myself REALLY liking something. This isn’t exactly ideal, but it does provide me the opportunity to participate in a little self-reflection. Is the inner me on the same page as the rest of me? Eckhart Tolle often speaks about attachment to forms. How it inevitably leads to

3 no-fail ways to re-enter Alignment when you can’t get back in (+ a bonus last resort!)

The flow you experience when you are in Alignment is addicting. You’re feeling fantastic, everything seems to be going your way, life’s difficulties feel temporary and you’re motivated to fix them without complaint.   But life requires contrast and as a consequence, once you’ve experienced the magic of being in Alignment, it becomes very frustrating when you’re out and can’t seem to get back in. Your usual get happy tricks aren’t working. Netflix is boring, you’re sick of the music on your playlist, it’s too cold to go for a walk and even a piece of your favourite chocolate just ain’t cutting it today. Here are my top three tricks to get you back into Alignment. Accept it (without judgement) This is number one for a reason. It’s one of the most powerful tools you can use when you’re feeling those negative emotions that are keeping you down. It can also be one of the most difficult steps to take. The good news is that once you start practicing acceptance on a r

My #1 Alignment Trick!

I often get asked what my go to alignment activity is. I hesitate to say for three reasons.  1.What gets me into my highest alignment is not likely to be what gets you into your highest alignment.  2.It’s constantly changing. What gets me into alignment today will not necessarily get me into alignment tomorrow. Last year the spring fair was the most magical day ever! When you go back the next year it’s fun but you end up disappointed that it’s not quite the same. Can you relate? DO NOT CHASE YESTERDAYS ALIGNMENT. Flow into today’s alignment.  3.And the number three reason that I don’t always feel comfortable sharing what is currently getting me most aligned is...that lately...it’s shopping. Shopping can often be seen as a materialistic, ego driven activity. And it can be. When I first started heavily investigating the world of spiritual development one of the first shifts I experienced was I no longer felt any alignment from new things.

3 ways to tell if it's your intuition or your ego talking

Follow your gut. The answer is within you. We've all heard this before. The problem is sometimes when we look within we get mixed messages. Should you take that new job opportunity? Something inside is saying yes but something else is saying hell no. This is the battle of your intuition vs your ego. If you listen carefully enough, you will begin to easily tease apart the two.
