Happy New Moon and Solar Eclipse

flower-2019057_1920Today’s new moon is a highly sensitive energy and indeed powerful. It is about changes, powerful experiences of self-exploration, and diving deep inside to explore the subconscious. Hold on tight!

The new moon represents beginnings. The Moon & the Sun are creating frequencies and energy waves that influence the tides, and all life forms on Earth, including human behavior & consciousness.

The New Moon is a great time to set your intentions, write down goals, or begin new projects for the new cycle. Consider sitting in ceremony – light a candle, take a moment to reflect, or practice personal meditation. Affirm to the Universe your intentions & inner-most, heartfelt desires for the cycle. When writing your intention, be specific, allowing yourself to feel it, not just think it. Let it rise from within you. It must feel right and true to you.

Make the best of this powerful cycle, and be patient with everyone around you, just by noticing and listening.
Just by being.


Loving you,

What is Reiki?

“According to the National Institutes of Health’s National Center of Complementary and Alternative Medicine, reiki is a healing method based on an Eastern belief in an energy that supports the body’s natural ability to heal.”

How to Discover Your Authentic Self

The new moon happening on January 27th represents new beginnings. Set your intention for 2017 – start with discovering yourself first. It’s a time to emerge and live as your authentic self. It’s time to live your truth and embrace it. Spread your wings and fly like a butterfly! Use this month as an amazing chance to tap into the purpose of your soul.

“By finding and choosing to be your most authentic and loving self, you will leave a trail of magic everywhere you go.” ~unknown

~ Empower ~ Your Mind

Many of us experience a yearning desire to awaken our unique gifts and offer them to the world. Our desire is a re-awakening of self, with the courage to carry out the process of transformation. To be authentic, we must make authentic choices and allow natural expressions such as acceptance, strength, courage, compassion, joy, and love shine through.

Let change become your new beginning.

Allow your natural expressions to emerge from your soul: you don’t have to create them, they are already there.

~ Embrace ~ Your True Self

Use the power from within to reflect on an area of your life you want to change or create, and take responsibility for it. This journey begins by letting go of old beliefs and patterns. This allows you to make room for new beliefs and have the capacity to empower yourself to awaken and live your higher purpose.

Connect and listen to your yearnings, your deepest longings are the seeds of your potential, so go ahead and plant them! Begin the process of manifesting your greatest visions – by using your intuition you become fully connected to your inner guidance and gain an intimate knowledge of your authentic self. You gain awareness from the inside out. Knowing that each of us has an authentic and unique style, and we can manifest it every day and in magical ways.

~ Evolve ~ Journal It!

Just as the caterpillar’s soul begins to activate the transformation of random cells into butterfly, so is our soul guiding us to evolve. Yes, I believe that it’s dancing butterfly time!

Take a lesson from the butterfly and let it remind you that growth and change do not have to be hard. By cracking out of our cocoons, we begin to look for new, exciting adventures to pursue. See life as an art and a work in progress. Unleash your authentic self and make the best of it with every choice that you make.

Ask yourself ~ what measures will I take today that will take me closer to my goal?

5 Ways to Create Your Authentic Self

1. Begin to Use Your Power from Within
Power Statement: I am a capable; I am a wise, connected, resourceful woman. I commit to use the power I naturally extend to others on my own behalf.

2. Step into Your Identity
Power Statement: I am a powerful creator. I align with the story of my power and the possibilities for my life and future.3. Turn Toward Your Yearnings
Ask yourself: “What do I most yearn to experience, express, create, and contribute?”


4. Create From the Inside
Power Statement: I’m committing to creating my yearnings, and I let go of wanting and/or waiting.

5. Nurture Yourself, Reflect, and Keep Building
Power Statement: An acorn becomes an oak tree through growing as itself. I realize my destiny by using everything that happens as fuel for my evolution.

Bliss & Peace,

Hello Beautiful Ladies ~ Blissful new moon and peaceful NEW YEAR!

New moons are about change and new beginnings. The December 29 New Moon will inspire you with passion, romance, and motivation. It represents the end of an energy, perhaps a situation or a relationship, that you need to let go of. Use this new moon for self-improvement and inner peace during this period of transition. This month is about taking many baby steps and adjusting your direction as you go. As you adjust, what needs to be improved in your life becomes clearer.

Self-Love ~ It’s a challenge you CAN master!

“Self-love, it’s a challenge to master.” I saw this comment on one of my Facebook posts last week and every comment was similar. Is self-love hard to master? When I heard it I was so confused – I don’t remember what it means not to love myself fully. I guess I have taken it for granted, but for many women out there, it IS hard to master self-love. Let me guide you as you take those first baby steps!

“Self-love requires you to be honest about your current choices and thought patterns and undertake new practices that reflect self-worth.” ~Caroline Kirk

Empower Your Mind ~ What is Self-Love?

Self-Love is:
When you love your body unconditionally

Thanking your body for carrying you all these years

When you say ‘I love you’ to yourself

When you love all your wounds and shadows – without judging them in your mind

When you feel all of it in your soul and understand that your body is not a thing – it is ‘me’ and it needs love and compassion

How do you find an inner peace and a self-love that allows you to fulfill your true potential? Don’t let fear be in control. You are always choosing between fear and love. That’s it. Set the intention to see yourself as loving and powerful, and the unloving fearful thoughts will fall away.
Be proactive without going into impatience or martyrdom; make a commitment to yourself for an improvement in some area of your life. Be patient and accepting with yourself while you are finding creative solutions to obstacles in your life. Find unconditional love for yourself without self judgment. Life seems to work out when you have self-love first.

Embrace ~ Your True Self

Improvement is change and usually always requires letting go of something that is no longer needed. This is a great time to study your fear patterns and change your beliefs. The main idea behind IMPROVEMENT is communication with our true self. What do I want? How would I like to do it? What do I wish to manifest from this improvement?

How to Practice Self-Love
Make this practice first on your resolutions list!

1. Write down one of your body parts that you love. Every day add another part to the list. Try to do it not only in your mind, but rather feel where it is coming from within your body. You will be amazed the stories that your body will tell you. Dare to do it in front of the mirror!

2. Write 20 characteristics that you respect and admire about yourself.

3. Ask yourself these questions each day: ‘How do I choose to be as a person today? Does it match my list?’

What does self-love mean to you?

Bliss, loving Peace and
Happy New Year,
