Time

July 18, 2012

TIME….is a short 4 letter word & yet there are so many meanings to this little word…meanings that are funny to meanings that are very deep as well.
This word…TIME has come up a lot for me in the past few weeks…past few months…past few years. The meaning of TIME has changed & evolved over….time 🙂

So….Here’s my 2 cents on Time.

  1. Time as a measurement of lack:  I don’t ever have enough Time to get ________ done.
  2. Time as an acknowledgement of passing events:  I remember 20 years ago when ________ happened.
  3. Time as a measurement of accomplishments:  In just 3 years, I have achieved my list of 20 goals.
  4. Time as a reminder of the good times:  Remember going to _________ and having so much fun.
  5. Time as a reminder of the bad times: I remember __________ 😦
  6. Time as marker of life events: I have 2 children & 1 grandchild now 😀
  7. Time as a way to mark future events: In 1 year, I want to travel to _________
  8. Time as a man made way to control people:  Arrrr….Monday, time to go to work again.
  9. Time as a way to keep many people busy:  I don’t ever have enough Time to get  all these things done in a day
  10. Time as a way to keep Truth Hidden from many people: Earth is much older than what science books tell us Earth is.

The Biggest Hidden Truth about Time….is that there Is No Time….Now is just NOW & will always be. “Time” has been falsely put here to control & enslave us & keep us going in circles…so we are too tires & too busy to search for the Truth.  Some of us….We woke up, shook off the long slumber & have Remembered the Truth 😉

Here’s a great song that speaks to Time & the different meanings of Time.

 

What does Time mean to you?

Until next time… Make each day count!

Be You,

Spring Cleaning For The Soul

April 3, 2012

I have taken a bit of a hiatus and realized that it has been more than 2 months since I last wrote a blog post…Too long for a wordy person such as myself. Writing things down for me have become my therapy…it has become a Healing Tool for me and gets out what is floating around in my head. It gets out the issues, fears, chatter and noise that can become so over whelming at times if it all just stays in my head. So, with this inspiration and a fresh word document open, I sat down to write out a new blog post….then cursor just blinked & blinked on the screen….no words were coming to me. The very topic I had intended on writing about seemed too big a mountain to climb just now… too much in my mind right now to settle into an inspirational post. So, I have gleaned this most appropriate blog post that fits what I most need to hear, see & do for myself at this time. This blog post is from just over 2 years ago, I wrote in on March 31, 2010. May this blog post be just as relevant to you as well. Enjoy.

Spring Cleaning For The Soul

We have just finished welcoming in the official start of Spring & celebrated the Spring Equinox here in the northern hemisphere. This is the season of new beginnings & rebirth. This got me thinking on how I have been applying the Spring Fever to my life & how I can incorporate more of this season’s newness to my life.

So… here’s my 2 cents on spring cleaning for the soul.

 

1. Clean out the dust bunnies from your Mind

Clear Thinking = Cleaning out old stale thoughts & old mental blocks that no longer serve your Highest Self

2. Open the Windows to your Eyes

Clear Seeing = Re-examining your life in a new light; what’s really working & what do you need to appreciate more right Now

3. Wash the grime from your Spirit

Clear Being = Cleansing your very Being to wash away the old & outdated “should’s” & “should not’s”

4. De-clutter the Heart to make room for the new

Clear Centered Heart = Letting the past go and make peace with it to open up to the new NOW

5. Untangle the ties that bind your Mind

Conscious Thinking = Responding in a manner that supports Your Highest Being as well as others

 

What Spring cleaning have you started?

Have you done a Spring Cleaning for your Soul yet?

Until next time… Make each day count!

Be Cleaning,
Nicole

How To Survive New Years Eve When You’re Single

December 30, 2011

Ahhhhh…Christmas is over and had such a nice time, visiting Family I actually liked & appreciated spending time with. (Avoided the ones who drive me nuts & just don’t “get me”…hence the nice time)
Not at all feeling guilty about eating chocolates or having some Baileys in my morning coffee…nope, is a very nice & relaxing holiday time for me…no stress, just relaxing & chilling out…..

YIKES….New Years Eve is just around the corner… this is the one holiday’s that I just don’t like very much…Being single and having no romantic partner to be with….Just Sucks!!!
Really, it more than Sucks, quite frankly. All the shows, ads & movies are about “Ringing in the New Year” with your Love partner by your side…being all cheery and saying the magical countdown.…10…9….8….7….6….5…4…3…2…1..HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! Now that great, wonderful New Years Kiss…all is happy & bright & full of great things exactly at Midnight…because you are with your Love Partner. This isn’t how my many New Years Eves have been spent…quite the opposite really, being single & a solo parent…I’ve spent my New Years Eve’s with my children, counting down the final 10 seconds & shouting (or as my children have gotten older…just said the words) Happy New Year!

Don’t get me wrong, I love spending time with my children & I do love them. It is just not the same as celebrating with a Love Partner too. So, this year seems to affecting me more than past years and I just wanted to send out a quick survival kit to others, who also find themselves alone this New Years Eve’s night.

So… here’s my 2 cents on how to survive new years eve when you’re single.

1. Begin to view the idea of being single as a choice…With a New year approaching, do you still choose to remain single or can you choose the intent to find a loving partner to share your life with for this new year ahead of you

2. Create a Been There, Done That & Don’t Want to do That Again List (Better known as the low points of the year that you no longer want to hang onto)

3. Create a Great Things That Happened This Year List (Better known as a Gratitude list)

4. Start with the Been There list…read it over slowly and take in the very fact that you survived & surpassed all these upsets or setbacks in your year…You Made It Through!

5. Now…go ahead and Rip, Tear, Shred, Throw in garbage or Burn this list…be done & say goodbye to the past and make room for new to enter once more.

6. Read through the Things That Happened list…read this list even more slowly and savor the high points in your year, the very things you are grateful for and say Thank You!

7. Breathe in this New Year with Happiness, with Eagerness and with Enthusiasm…Breathe it all in eyes closed and hand on heart to fully Claim This New Year as Your Year.

8. Celebrate this New Years Eve your way, feeling proud that you have done a damn fine job & you are worth Celebrating in every moment of the New Year ahead!!

Have yourself a Great New Years Eve Celebration, however you see fit to celebrate it!

Until next time… Make each day count!

Be Grateful & Appreciative,
Nicole

When Breaking Down Leads To A BreakThrough

December 10, 2011

Looking back through the year…there has been many, many changes. Last year at this time…I was at the beginning stages of my Breakdown; A BreakDown to get to my BreakThrough. I honestly fought this deep, deep lonely feeling until I could fight it no longer…As I laid in a pile of soiled tissues, chest heaving to that way down deep pain…pain & cries of the most primordial cry that we can produce.

My world disappeared before my eyes…the world where I knew who I was…what I was supposed to be doing…and how I fit into this world. Everything that I knew to be true…was yanked out from beneath my feet. Everything that I thought I had learned in the last 11 years, was coming to face me during this stripped away time…every lesson I went through came back to visit me, to see if I truly understood & got the lessons…got the lessons & could apply these lessons at a time when I was in my spiritually raw moments…when the masks were stripped off & the real, unpolished Me was just left to deal with these lessons.
My heart cried the tears that had been forgotten about so many years ago…my soul cracked open to let out the dark trapped feelings of fear…fear of being less than enough.

With the help of the Creator, my Guides, my friends and my soul family…I borrowed their strength to help me raise up once again…dust myself off and go through this Storm…the Storm of facing who I was & who I wasn’t…it was my Dark Night of The Soul. (This Dark Night… lasted for me about 4 months, not 1 night)

Going through this very troubling time has given me so many gifts that I would not have had without going through this dark & very tough period of time…It has given me…ME, who I am.

So… here’s my 2 cents on when breaking down leads to a break through.

1. BreakDown = Breaking Down All Defenses
2. BreakDown = Breaking Down All Old Patterns
3. BreakDown = Breaking Down All Blocks to Authentic Self
4. BreakDown = Breaking Down All that is no longer Serving your Higher Self
5. BreakThrough = Knowing Who you Are
6. BreakThrough = Knowing What your Soul is Here to Do
7. BreakThrough = Learning to Love All of Yourself
8. BreakThrough = Learning to Accept your past & Acknowledging great learning from your past
9. BreakThrough = Knowing You are Strong enough to go through Anything
10. BreakThrough = Fully Opening your Heart & Soul…to Love Greater than you have ever done before

May your BreakDown lead to your BreakThrough with Divine Grace…that leads to your Heart and Soul Opening.

Until next time… Make each day count!

Be of Heart & Soul,
Nicole

The Forgotten Ones

October 5, 2011

This has been an incredibly tough week for me personally…Emotions came bursting to the surface last Friday and I’ve been on a rollercoaster ride of Emotions ever since. Now, having worked on my emotional naming, clearing and releasing for over 12 years now, I can easily share my emotions freely with others and not have the need to apologize for tearing up or crying when I need to do so.

This week has been the most Raw that I’ve felt in such a long time…It cut through so deep down. Deep down to the very Core of my being…and then deeper than that at times. Speaking with others, they are also saying this as well…raw emotions just coming forth for them as well.

Just the other day I was given a message to reflect upon…dealing directly with my emotions & past buried emotions. The answer that came up for me was…”I don’t want to be Forgotten Again.” This simple sentence was softly spoken to me from Spirit…Yet this simple sentence made me double over in such deep, deep pain…I knew this was Truth. I didn’t want to be Forgotten…again. Then, I thought about how much we are all alike and share in the most basic needs & emotions…this is a Universal Hurt when we are Forgotten.

So… here’s my 2 cents on the forgotten ones.

1. Forgotten = Gone from memory
2. Forgotten = Easily ignored
3. Forgotten = Not memorable enough
4. Forgotten = Disappeared from existence
5. To be Forgotten is an incredibly hurtful feeling
6. To be Forgotten is a very isolating feeling
7. To be Forgotten makes one doubt their Self-Worth
8. To be Forgotten makes you feel so small and vulnerable
9. When we are Forgotten…we are devalued
10. When we are Forgotten…we are judged unimportant
11. When we are Forgotten…we are hurt by others ignoring our being
12. When we are Forgotten…we Hurt Deeply
13. Choosing to step out of the Pain…We Claim our Own Self-Worth
14. Choosing to step out of the Hurt…We Claim our Power
15. Choosing to step out of the Isolation…We Claim our own Attention
16. Choosing to step out of the Forgotten place…We Claim our Sovereign Rights Once More!

Claim your Power.
Claim your Sovereignty.

Until next time… Make each day count!

Be Remembered Once Again,

Rocks In My Pockets

September 16, 2011

I have loved collecting Rocks ever since I was a young girl…I enjoyed finding the stray ones, digging them up from the dirt and taking a rock that was ordinary looking on the outside & cracking it open to find such a beautiful rock on the inside. I drove my mother nuts by have a Large pail ofrocks (all carefully washed & dried)
under my bed…even after my mother said that I had the leave the rocks outside…I loved my Rocks. Then fast forward to my teens…not much more than a passing glance at Rocks…friends & music took over my life & Rocks were forgotten. It wasn’t until I had children that the love of Rocks came back to me…first as a parent watching my kids pick up & discover the mysteries of Rocks…the hidden treasure these Rocks contained. Then I became annoyed with these very Rocks that my kids were collecting…told them the Rocks had to be outside.  Fast forward again to taking communication classes that focus on identifying FEELINGS…How to tap intoyour wide range of emotions by expressing verbally how you are feeling…using more feeling words than fine, okay, good, great…Really tapping into Feelings. This is when my Love for Rocks began again…this time my Love included Crystals too.

So now, I usually have a few Rocks or Crystals with me…everywhere I go.  I usually carry a few Rocks or Crystals within my pockets…it’s a good way to have the wonderful energy & healing benefits of these stones with me always. So I now say I have Rocks in my pockets with a smile on my face…it is Who I Am Now!

So… here’s my 2 cents on rocks in my pockets.

  1. There is no wrong way to learn about Rocks & Crystals…just learn
  2. There is no Best Rock or Best Crystal to have…they are all great in their own way
  3. There are many places to buy Rocks & Crystals now…ask around & you’ll get a few places to start
  4. Once you’ve found a place that sells Rocks & Crystals…let your intuition guide you to the stones that are right for you at
    this moment
  5. Let your eyes wonder over the selection of stones & see what calls out to you…Rocks talk…you just have to be quiet to
    hear them
  6. See what these stones feel like in your hand…place 1 stone at a time & just feel the stone resting in your hand
  7. What stone jumps out at you…what is your first reaction to that stone…that’s the one to buy
  8. How does this stone look to your eyes…nice color, nice shape, odd shape…may be intriguing you for a purpose
  9. Once you purchase your stones…bring them home & wash with running water…(check to make sure is not dissolve in water)
  10. Find a nice place to display your new Rocks
  11. Spend time holding your new Rocks & getting to know them
  12. Consider placing a Rock or two in your pocket each day…get to know their energy…let them know You

What Rocks have you looked at lately?

Have you placed a Rock in your pocket yet?

Until next time… Make each day count!

Be You,

Nicole

Antenna Up And Listening

August 31, 2011


This week I’m reposting a blog from April of last year. What a difference just over one year can make. I now know what it is that I am to do on many different levels and am doing so Heart & Soul…with grateful acknowledgements from the Many friends & Soul family that have come into my life when I allowed myself to be more authentic with people…when I allowed a more honest & closer connection with people. They have reflected the very ideas I was so intent on finding on my own…the Who I was supposed to be…this was reflected back at me in the deeper Heart relationships that I allowed to happen. So, now I know who I truly am & what I am meant to do for me, for others & for Creator. I am reposting this blog post to help nudge & guide others to remember who they really are.

Namaste

Have you ever had the feeling that there was a “THING” you’re supposed to do…but have no clear picture of what that THING is…It’s just a feeling at this point. Well…that’s been what I’ve been dealing with for awhile now….and it’s got me quite annoyed. This got me thinking about How I’m going to find out what this THING is. What I’ve discovered is the information that I seek will reveal its self to me when I Ready Listen Whole Heartedly.

So… here’s my 2 cents on antenna up and listening.

To Begin:

1. Be open to new information that Just comes to you
2. Be open to receiving feedback on skill-sets from friends & family
3. Be open to Ask for help in discovering your talents & skill-sets

Then Do:

4. Act on the hunch that you need to talk to a specific person for information
5. Act on the nudge that NOW is the time to call a friend you haven’t spoken to for a while
6. Act on the inspiration to take that new class/workshop that has recently interested you

Go Within:

7. Seek the advice from your Inner Self
8. Seek the answers from your Soul
9. Seek the Truth from your HEART

What questions do you need to listen for?

Are you willing to listen?

Until next time… Make each day count!

Be Open,
Nicole
