I recently got a new computer, it has the new operating system Windows 8. A big change from my old system; completely different, totally unfamiliar and driving me crazy. It’s not intuitive to me and to say that I struggle trying to figure out where to go and how to do things is an understatement. My old system didn’t have all the new bells and whistles that the new one does, but at least it was familiar and I knew how to navigate it. Why do they have to change everything?
Energetically, planet Earth is in the same predicament. Since the shift in 2012, we too have upgraded to a new operating system, transitioning from the old 3D paradigm into a 5th Dimensional one. Gone are all the old rules and structures that we knew. Even if we didn’t like the old system, at least we knew how to navigate it – it was familiar.
Change is the only constant and now more than ever we need to be open to change. We are awakening and as we awaken we are being asked and nudged to live in a new way – to function in a new operating system. And guess what? There are no rules – we’re creating this New Earth as we go along.
It’s time for each soul to find its path. How do we do that? We begin by dreaming. Do you remember dreaming when you were a child? So full of ideas and possibilities. Somewhere along the way we learned to believe that life is limited, that we are only allowed so many wishes. Perhaps it was the Genie in the Bottle story where we only got three wishes. Maybe it was the parents who always said, “Money doesn’t grow on trees.” Or the teacher who declared, “You’re not cut out for that.” As a child, I remember dreaming and fantasizing what my life would be like; it seems like a million years ago. To be honest, I can’t remember the last time I dreamed of all the things I wanted, things I wanted to do and see, things I wanted to have in my life, how I wanted to change the world. When did I learn to limit myself?
We live in a limitless universe, and all that we want is available to us, as long as we believe that it can be ours. I have been getting one strong message of late: “I’ll See It When I Believe It.” It is one of the keys to manifesting what we want, to understanding the Universe and vitally important for those of us standing at the crossroads of a new path wondering who we are and what our purpose is. It’s time to believe that all is possible.
Don’t know what your dream is? Are you doing what you love? If not, what’s holding you back? Fear, finances, obligations? Ask yourself “What do I really want to do now?” And then listen, listen to your heart – you will find your dream there. Your dream should bring you joy, and if it doesn’t then it’s not your dream.
The good news is we are powerful creators, powerful beyond anything we can envision. We can create amazing dreams for both ourselves and the New Earth. Spend some time each day just dreaming, imagine the wildest possibilities; go beyond anything you have considered in the past. Dream big and loud and in full color. Wow, it’s going to be exciting!
Can’t wait to see what you’re going to create.
I awake to sunshine, surprised that my body, somehow knowing that I had no agenda this morning, no time clock to punch, had decided to sleep past its normal 4:00 a.m. rise time. As I prepare for my morning run…
You have been here before, a part of the circle of life on this planet earth for eons and eons. You are the players, the game changers, the creators. You have seen and experienced much, yet you still return, for there is nowhere else in the Universe such as this. Some may call it a game, and that it true. Others call it Earth School – also true. It is but one of many opportunities for a soul to grow and evolve. There are rules to this game, instructions for this school, in this particular time-space continuum, that are different from those of others. Just as earth games such as Monopoly or Trivia Pursuit have their own set of rules such is true for the Game of Life on Earth. You came here for the excitement, the thrill, the adventure and the pure joy of physicality.
I have often said that my grandchildren are my greatest teachers. That was never so true as last fall when I realized my grandson Drew was showing me how the world works once again. “Nana,” Drew says in his phone…
Have you ever noticed how much stuff we have? Gadgets for this and tools for that, clothes we don’t even wear, the latest toys that sit unplayed with, and big houses filled with more stuff. We are jealous of other…
You will survive.... My message to anyone who has lost a loved one, especially a child. I have to admit, when someone told me that same thing after my daughter Kristi died, I didn't believe them. I did not want to live any longer on this Earth without my daughter. I wanted to leave. I didn't care about life, I wanted to be with my daughter. The thought of living another 30+ years was excruciatingly painful. Yet here I am, 12 years later and yes, I have survived. Was it a long hard road? Yes. But somewhere along the way, about a year ago, I decided I wanted to live. I remember the moment, the thought came to me loud and clear "I want to live!"
Each morning, as I stand in the shower, I repeat this mantra:
I choose that my thoughts, my words and my deeds reflect only my higher self and not my ego.
I remember who I am, a Divine Spark of God.
I walk in my essence of God.
These words set my intention for the day, creating an energy that helps me to balance the ups and downs and the challenges that life throws at me, keeping me on a steady course. And when I am mindful, and can maintain that energy, wow, what a difference it makes in my day and my life.
With this issue, we want to honor our daughter Kristi who died twelve years ago in an auto accident. She was the catalyst that started us on this soul journey and brought so much light into our lives. As we look back on the past twelve years, we marvel at where we were and at where we have come to be. The journey is not yet finished, but there is more joy in our hearts and we are confidently moving forward, knowing that Kristi is guiding us and smiling down on us always.
From the very beginning we have honored Kristi’s passing by hosting the Kristi Visocky Memorial Golf Tournament, the largest golf tournament in Northern Colorado, and Kristi’s Big Night Out event. (The absolute best party of the summer!) Since its inception in 2003, with the help and support of an amazing community, the Foundation has awarded $200,000 in scholarships to 90 area young women, $100,000 to build a house for Habitat for Humanity and over $100,000 in support to area organizations.
Recently I was stopped by a train in Longmont, CO. As I was sitting there waiting to proceed, I noticed a building on the right, an old factory-type place with a sign that said Cheese Importers. Having an hour to…
I was having one of those days. You know, the kind of day where you do something really stupid and then beat yourself up over it for several days after. Well here I was, well into day two of flogging myself – you know how it works, you start dredging up past wrongs, one after another, months and then years’ worth, and heap those on top of the current wrong you did. Pretty soon you’ve got a pile of boulders on your back and you’re walking around all hunched over and angry. Mad at yourself for being so stupid, seeing yourself as a total screw up, over and over and over.
So there I was lying awake at 4:00 a.m. wallowing in my self-pity about what a poor excuse for a person I was. What was interesting was that the stupid thing I did wasn’t even that big, it was just something I wished I could take back. I was half-awake/half asleep when I heard the voice.
