The Deeply Spiritual Relationship Cycle of Remembering and Forgetting

All relationships have their seasons. There will be times in your life when you feel all loved up, and then there will be dry spells when you wonder how you can kick-start that beautiful spark again.

A few years ago, my husband and I were squabbling at regular intervals. We were experiencing some major stressful events in our lives and therefore there was no time to nurture our relationship. Our fuses and tempers were incredibly short. Speaking just on behalf of myself, this was a time when there was no time for me to practice self care and love and therefore my cup was too empty to flow over into Lovebug Land (the blissful relationship state where you are in extreme flow and gratitude). 

A dear friend shared with me a piece of soulful wisdom that literally re-framed and re-shaped the way I saw the constant cyclic unfolding of relationships. She said that as humans we’re either in a phase of remembering or forgetting. 

Here’s a Facebook live I did on the theme to expand upon it more:


That is, we “remember” how deeply we adore our partner or we temporarily “forget” how deeply we adore our partner. The secret is to commit to activities, date nights and other fun stuff that prompts the deep and blissful process of remembering. It’s also important to nurture ourselves through self-care so we have the resources to GIVE.

When you’re in a state of appreciation you REMEMBER.

When you’re disconnected from happy feelings, wallowing in expectations, self pity, and living too much in the past, you are a state of FORGETTING.

As humans we also tend to do this with the relationship we have with the Universe (or God). We go through phases where we forget the power we have to connect on an intimately deep level. And then the light-switch gets flipped back on all of a sudden and we remember how powerful and meaningful the connection actually is. All of a sudden there is this newfound sense of wonder and inspiration.

You see, the process of forgetting isn’t something that’s wrong. It’s actually a vital part of growing and riding the beautiful wave and contrasting energies of life. Just as there are different phases of the moon, the tides and even menstrual cycles, so too is the beautiful cyclic nature of feeling the elated highs that the human experience has to offer.

Forgetting makes remembering even sweeter. It’s an integral part of the evolution of your consciousness.

 

Question: So what if you are in a phase of remembering and your partner is in a phase of forgetting? (I get this question quite often).

Answer: Then turn it into a game to gently prompt them to remember. You could flip through old photo albums, be more affectionate, praise your lover more. But be sure to let go of the expectancy that you need to always be on the same page at the same time. If true love is present, a natural flow and sync will occur. And if you’ve done it once before you can do it again.

Another golden nugget of wisdom to consider is that the more you remember and take time to appreciate and connect to your lover, yourself and the Universe the less often you go through the periods of forgetting.

Remember, setting the intention to be in a state of “remembering” more often is really important.

It’s the first step in the manifesting process to spark a deeper connection with yourself, your loved ones and the Universe. xo

Forgiveness And The Miracles That Unfold When We Choose LOVE

I wrote this post a few days ago about how the written content of a few of my courses was literally ‘copy and pasted’ by someone into a product that they sold as their own. This is the second time this has happened, but this time I was super aware of the energetic toll it had taken on my vibration.

I made two posts in my private manifesting community where I currently have over 12,000 amazing students.  The first one was to let everyone know that the person that did this was an ex-student and to express how saddened I felt by this experience. The support I received was overwhelming. To be clear, I wasn’t using this as an opportunity to be nasty to this lady that plagiarized, it was actually a MUCH bigger lesson than I had first anticipated. The comments from my students ranged from anger, sadness to disgust.

“Karma is a bitch” was a comment frequently used that actually made me wake up to the power I had to handle the situation with a newfound level of consciousness because I don’t believe karma is a bitch. I believe karma is the awareness of the energetic responsibility we have to lead by example with integrity. This phrase is often cleverly disguised as a way to send someone bad luck (I’ll post more about this another day). I wanted to get to the space where I could balance the energy.

So I wrote this in the group yesterday to give them an update and to use it as an opportunity to teach that there is ALWAYS A BETTER WAY to handle conflict resolution than with attaching to energy that will keep you down…

[IMPORTANT HEALING UPDATE + SOULFUL REMINDERS]

I just wanted to say thank you for all of the beautiful support and love expressed here in this community following the plagiarism issue I shared yesterday concerning one of our ex-members.

I know there were a lot of mixed feelings floating around in the comments from anger to disgust and various other forms of non-sparkly energy.

THE ISSUE HAS NOW BEEN RESOLVED, PEACEFULLY.

It no longer needs to be met with drama, or any energy actually. I completely neutralized it by FEELING INTO MY HEART SPACE WITH COMPASSION.

I teach this stuff right? I know you know how important it is for me to walk the talk and to be in full integrity. I didn’t want to carry around any resentment in my energy field. What’s the point?

This experience reminded me that in life we make mistakes (sometimes really foolish ones) that can get us into trouble. I have made MANY mistakes over the course of my lifetime. That’s how we learn.

So when I have a person that is doing everything I asked (legally demanded actually) and has taken down all of the plagiarized content, publicly said sorry and shown me how much she regrets her actions, what choice do I have?

I could hold onto resentment and feel like a victim. I know and remember all too well the energetic damage this does to my cells. I’m growing a human in my belly right now, my baby doesn’t need that surging through her bloodstream as well.

OR

I could remember that we’re human and we make mistakes and that FORGIVENESS is the path of least resistance that won’t mess with my flow of energy.

I sent this lady a personal text (after all of the legal requirements had been met of course) to express my gratitude for the lesson she taught me over the last 24 hours.

  • I was reminded of the gift of compassion.
  • I was shown that I have a choice how I react to situations.
  • I was shown that being angry is okay as long as you don’t allow it to stay with you for more than a few hours.
  • I was reminded of the support and power of COMMUNITY thanks to you beautiful people here in the MANIFEST group.
  • I was reminded how I am entitled to stand my legal ground and protect my work. I’m a grown-ass woman that honors my voice.
  • I was called, from deep within, to be KIND.

Ironically, today is her birthday. It would have bee really shitty to wake up this morning with that horrendous sinking feeling in the pit of her stomach knowing that her brand has been picked apart and that people now know of her actions. It would have sucked on so many levels.

In the text I encouraged her to keep teaching, that she is a beautiful and vibrant person with a mission to share and I didn’t want her to be discouraged and feel like she was a bad person. I didn’t want her to carry that around with her in her heart. Most importantly I told her to tune into her own heart and use her own voice.

Within minutes a text came back saying how much she appreciated my kindness. I CRIED. It didn’t take much at all to turn a really shitty experience into something that strengthened us both.

I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH. Keep sharing your soul stories and supporting one another. xoxox


After my new friend and I exchanged texts I felt a tremendous weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I honestly felt the full spiritual lesson behind it and felt a genuine need to see her success on her mission to teach. Karma isn’t a bitch at all, because the karma that this lady and I exchanged was powerful. It pushed both of our buttons and we came out the other side of it with new levels of awareness.

In each moment we choose LOVE over fear we keep our energy in a state of beautiful balance. Does this mean that people won’t come into our lives that do crummy things and poo on our parades? Hell no.

The real secret to manifesting a life you desire and living in a state of conscious awareness is to see yourself in the other person. We’re ALL in this together and we’re one in the same.

What I wish for you, I wish for myself. 

In conclusion I whole-heartedly encourage you to ditch the drama, let go of the wrong-doings and LEAD WITH LOVE. It will literally reshape the fabric of your reality. xo

A Love Note from The Universe When You Feel Unloved

*UPDATE: I’m thrilled to report that this issue was resolved peacefully and powerful spiritual lessons came out of it. I write this post about it: Forgiveness And The Miracles That Unfold When We Choose LOVE

Yesterday I found out that someone stole something from me. One of my manifesting students, that apparently looked up to me, plagiarized my work and sold it as her own. This one hit me hard. It might be pregnancy hormones, the inability to manage holding a steady vibration and not flip the eff out, but I had to cry to release the full spectrum of energy I was feeling.

This might sound a little ‘out there’, but as I’ve mentioned before there are times when I like to pretend that the Universe is comforting me (which it always is). However, sometimes it feels more like a channeled spiritual ‘download’ where my energetic tank is running on empty and then I receive the words I need to fill myself back up again. 

And then this letter came to me that I want to share with you now if you ever have to endure a shitty day when you’re feeling disconnected from the Universe and unloved (albeit temporarily)….


Dear [INSERT NAME HERE]

You know it’s going to be okay right? That right now you’re just feeling overwhelmed, tired, emotional and need to release your energy.

It’s all going to be okay.

I want you to remember that you are part of the Divine fabric of Oneness and that ALL IS WELL.

Life is supposed to test you. Life is designed to push you to your outer limits so that you rise above the illusion and keep moving forward no matter what.

That’s how that beautiful soul of yours keeps growing and expanding.

Your subconscious mind called this experience into reality so that you could learn something from it and that it would form part of your own unique journey through life.

You are so LOVED. You might not feel supported, nurtured, understood or celebrated in this moment, but there is always and has always been cascades of infinite love here for you. You always have unlimited access to this flow of unconditional LOVE that I have for you. It’s the same energy that keeps the stars in the sky and the water in the ocean. It’s omnipresent, omniscient and ever-lasting. You are made of this love. You ARE this love right down to the tiniest atom to the core of your cellular structure.

The energy you hold is so powerful.

My hand is always holding yours and supporting the ever-evolving expansion of your consciousness. You chose this. Well, WE actually worked together to nut out this plan.

It might seem like failure right now, that an injustice has unfolded, way too much drama, or a massive detour has taken place, but TRUST that it all serves a purpose. We both knew that our work together wouldn’t always be smooth sailing and that’s what makes it exciting and oh-so-rewarding in the long run.

It’s our united blessing as true light workers that we help to illuminate the heart of others as well. It’s vital that you get out of your head and into your beautiful authentic heart.

Forgive, send love and do not participate in energy that lacks integrity.

Be of service to others.

Shine your light brightly.

Allow yourself to release the energy that is holding you back. Trust that you are INFINITELY LOVED and keep moving forward no matter what.

What Is The Energetic Signature Pattern Of Your Soul?

As human beings, we are born into this world with a clean slate. Year after year as our personality emerges through life experience, we begin to create signature patterns of our souls in the form of repetitive vibrational offerings that manifest as our reality.

Everything in this entire beautiful Universe is based on vibration.

Literally everything you see, touch, taste, smell, sense and feel is in motion (especially your thoughts, which is why they are so powerful).

At an atomic level, it’s all buzzing and oscillating at a certain frequency to create the patterns that you see consistently showing up in your life. The vibrations clump together, because like attracts like (which is the Law of Attraction) and form your overall life experience.

If you feel like you are broke, unworthy, unlovable, unhealthy etc, then your vibe dial is set to the ‘sad trombone’ vibration and more of the same experience will head in your direction until you SHIFT YOUR VIBRATION and offer something radically different.

The vibration happens first, and then the reality is an echo (after the fact). We are all living in a reality where we play catch up over and over again in a never-ending loop called life.

The signature patterns of your soul are totally changeable and easy to transform. By becoming aware of the patterns of your soul and the vibration that you are offering you start to make sense of your life experience thus far, and then you can begin to intentionally shift the patterns and stories that you acknowledge are hindering your manifesting progress.

Last night my husband and I watched the Tony Robbins Netflix documentary called ‘I Am Not Your Guru’ which was a behind the scenes look at his wildly popular live event called Date With Destiny. I won’t write any spoilers, but let’s just say there were attendees that had to list out the difficulties they had experienced in their lives. I mentally imagined myself having to list out all of the painful stuff that I’ve been through over the last 30+ years. Themes include:

Violence, lies, divorce, depression, massive financial issues, betrayal, bulimia, addiction, sick family members, recurrent miscarriages, oh my!

All great stuff right? And then I really FELT my way into how attached I am to those stories now. I sat for a moment, took a deep breath, and remembered that I wouldn’t be who I am today if everything was smooth sailing. I wouldn’t be able to help people that are going through the darkest times in their lives and are looking for spiritual inspiration.

Something really magical happens to your signature soul pattern when you remember that your story built you, but it doesn’t define who you are as a spiritual being.

As soon as you make the decision to change your thoughts, your perspective and your patterns, then you literally have the power to change your life.

As a manifesting exercise, a really deep process is to list out all of the signature soul patterns (good and bad) that you can consciously acknowledge you emit as your vibration. Some insightful questions to prompt the process include:

  • Do you say the word ‘hate’ a lot? Are your verbal interactions with others drama-based and purposefully negative?
  • Do you feel grateful on a daily basis?
  • How do you choose to connect to the Divine within?
  • What activities make your heart sing? What brings you joy? Focus on that.
  • What has happened in the past that has created the beautiful, magnificent soulful being that you are today?

Then let it all go.

Consciously engineer your vibration and offer love, peace, compassion, joy, creativity, desire, gratitude and humility out there to the etheric wonder-scape of the Universe and watch what unfolds in your life as you move forward with grace. xo

Side note: You won’t always be perfect with the vibration you offer because you’re human. But try to make sure your predominant vibrational offerings from your energetic altar are done with conscious intention.

How to Train Yourself To Find The Blessing In Everything

Lovers leave, money stops flowing, pets die, relatives get sick, accidents happen and the list goes on. This can seriously shake your belief in the Universe and the Law of Attraction to the very core of your soul.

When you’re committed to your manifesting journey one of the most vital elements to have in your spiritual toolbox is TRUST. You need to learn how to trust in Divine timing and that a bigger picture for the expansion of your consciousness is in the process of unfolding.

One of my students wrote to me today expressing she has recently experienced many roadblocks on her manifesting journey thus far. She asked a really powerful question:

“How do you regain trust that the universe has your back?”

Here’s a small snippet of how I responded:

The Universe will always test people to their limit.

 

It’s how the trust is built between yourself and the Universe.

As crazy as it seems, your mission is to keep believing in your dreams no matter what experiences you have to endure. I don’t believe that everyone or everything has to be a reflection of us or needs to be symbolic, but you experienced this chapter and it’s now time to reset the trust button and put it behind you.

The most beautiful wild flowers grow after fire has devastated the land. The lotus flower grows in the muddiest, stinkiest water.

Just remember that you can’t have light without the darkness and timing is always perfect for what unfolds.

Another concerned lady wrote to me recently asking for help. She listed off in the email that her soulmate had just left her, her cat had died, she lost her job and someone had stolen money right out of her purse at the local nail salon.

At the end of the email she wrote:

“I just can’t seem to manifest things.”

But here’s the thing…

YES SHE CAN, YES SHE DID.

In fact, all that she listed in the email is in fact vital elements in the manifesting process to achieve your goals, dreams, wishes and desires.

You see, her awareness is set to “BLOCKED” because her perception of what unfolded is labelling the experience as ‘bad’ instead of seeing it as an opportunity to see beyond the illusion.

With the thousands of people I have worked with to manifest their desires, I know (without a shadow of a doubt) that seeming failure often presents itself before major spiritual breakthroughs. The key is to look for the blessing and say “thank you” for the opportunity to learn. I know it might be tough, I know it might make the resistance rise up with you, but it’s a deep and profound spiritual practice.

We need to do the following 3 things to train ourselves to find the blessings in everything to become soulful warriors:

  • BE GRATEFUL NO MATTER WHAT SHOWS UP
  • CULTIVATE COMPASSION (especially self-compassion because we’re all too hard on ourselves)
  • REMEMBER THAT LIFE IS SEASONAL (some seasons will be learning curves and others will be glittery dance parties of joy).

The path to mastering this skill is not easy, but it’s infinitely rewarding once you step back and see each and every beautiful present moment as a gift. xo

The Two Most Powerful Words To Use That Create Your Future

The words and language patterns that we choose to use in our daily lives have the power to shape our reality. Moment by moment we have a choice as to the vibration we are offering to the Universe to get reflected back to us as manifestations.

As you know: ‘to think is to create’.

However, there are two words in particular that lock certain beliefs into our subconscious minds and literally program the way we move through our life experience as spiritual beings.

I AM

These two little words might only be three letters in length, but they have the tremendous capacity and almighty strength to sculpt every aspect of your life, right down to the most minute and insignificant detail.

‘I AM’ is an affirmation every time you say it.

Whatever you choose to pair it with is a prayer to the Universe (or God) that you are declaring who you are and how you are choosing to define yourself as a spiritual being. You are OWNING that statement, branding yourself, offering a vibration and stamping a pattern to be repeated as a theme to manifest throughout your life.

A woman wrote to me yesterday saying that she would love to purchase one of my programs. She expressed that she was ‘kicked to the curb’ after being married for 15 years and left with 3 children to support and nurture. I get it for sure, after being married for 10 years myself and leaving my marriage with overwhelming debt and two beautiful children.

One sentence in this lady’s email moved me the most. Although she was willing to wire me the money for the course (an option we don’t offer), she explained why she doesn’t have a credit card with 3 sad and shocking words that inspired the need to write this post…

I AM POOR

It hit me like a tonne of bricks in the pit of my stomach that many people use their words so flippantly. I’m not talking about silly statements like ‘I AM HUNGRY’ or the basic intrinsic desires that need to be satiated throughout the course of a day. I’m talking about the statements that stick to your soul like shit to a blanket.

I AM TOO OLD
I AM FAT
I AM UNLUCKY
I AM STUPID

I’m sure you get the picture. The point here is that these statements cement themselves into your consciousness and manifest into your reality. The good news is that you have the power to shift your awareness and rewire your patterns to set you on a new course of awakening.

Honestly, if you spend time shining a light on your limited language patterns it could change everything for the better.

Try these, and see if you can drop them into your internal dialogue somehow:

I AM GRATEFUL
I AM HAPPY
I AM LOVED
I AM HEALTHY
I AM ABUNDANT

It doesn’t take much attention to get the hang of using your words more wisely. You can even spend time intentionally each day focussing on affirmations that will help to rewire old patterns. The magic that will unfold in your life as the result of claiming new I AM statements is a game changer. You’ll also start to notice that you become more careful with the words you choose to use when you’re conversing with others.

Try it, be gentle with yourself, and enjoy the process of owning your new soul statements. xo

Spiritual Snobbery. Why Do We Push Away The Negative Feelings Of Others?

The answer? Because people can’t see the beautiful opportunity to choose LOVE over fear.

When you first begin your journey into spirituality or learning how to manifest, you are buzzing with excitement. You’re looking at the world with a clean pair of eyes and you know that positivity is your best friend and anyone not on the “spiritual path” or that expresses negativity is a lower vibration and needs to be kept separate from you. You just can’t risk energetic contamination can you? This is bullshit.

You know what that’s called? JUDGMENT. I have to be upfront with this one because I’ve seen it over and over again where people actively complain about other people being negative, but don’t see that the act of commenting or acknowledging is tuning into the frequency of the same thing they believe they are standing against.

“Could you stop being so negative please? You’re affecting my energy and I don’t need that in my life right now.”

The truth is that fear attracts fear, which is why it’s so important to approach the energy of others with love and understanding. Not everyone is going to be on the same page as you and that’s totally fine. They are living out their own sacred contract with the Universe.

If a person is negative, send them love. Or at best offer them compassion. Witnessing an expression of negativity is a stellar opportunity to sharpen your levels of discernment and your psychic abilities. It’s actually diving into the trenches of deep spiritual work and not making someone wrong for FEELING.

There is a huge difference between allowing the negativity of others to affect you, as opposed to believing you are strong enough to rise above it and perhaps learn something from it. It’s not about engaging in the ‘woe is me’ stuff, it’s giving the person permission for it to pass through them (as quickly as possible) and not consume their life.

You become a light-worker, illuminating the consciousness of the planet by holding space for transformation to take place without condemnation.

It’s a call from your soul to test you and strengthen your spirit. People that are currently experiencing adversity or “rock bottom” are riding out a very important part of their own spiritual journey and it’s not to be feared. It’s got nothing to do with you actually. If you fear it, you will attract the same. If you push it away by believing it will affect you, you will attract the same. If you lack compassion, the next time you need an empathetic ear, you will attract the same.

We chose to live in the world, in this life experience, where it’s not always going to be rainbows, unicorns and sugar-plum fairies. Sometimes people die, people get sick, money runs out, failure is your perceived identity and everything seems super fucked up. One thing is for certain though, and I really want you to listen to this one…

It is healthy, natural and normal to become a hot mess sometimes. When you see it in others don’t approach it with fear or separatism. The reason it’s showing up in your reality is an opportunity to grow.

Yes, by all means draw healthy boundaries and don’t get sucked into the drama of someone else’s experience. This can be really tough if you’re an empath – I totally understand. However, as an empath your mission is to strengthen your super powers and rise above it.

Own your energy. Own your power. Choose love over fear and offer compassion. God knows, with all of the violent, intolerant and barbaric events unfolding in the world right now the planet needs less judgment and more LOVE AND SWEET, SOULFUL COMPASSION.

Open your heart. Your soul will thank you for it.

10 Things Spiritual People Need You To Know

Everyone is “spiritual” if they acknowledge they have a spirit or a soul that inhabits and animates their clump of stardust. However, we all express our spirituality in different and wondrous ways. A problem that often arises is when people have conflicting beliefs that make one belief appear to be more superior than the other. I’m not talking about religion, I’m talking about the various ways that people engage with the flow of spirituality in their lives believing that it is THE ONLY WAY vs. A WAY.

“There are many paths to enlightenment. Be sure to take one with a heart.” – Lao Tzu

The beauty of life is that spirituality comes in all different shapes and sizes. There is not a generic framework of beliefs and behaviors that a person MUST adhere to in order to be called “spiritual”. I believe that true spirituality is about finding what makes your own heart sing. It’s about finding your own unique alignment with the hum of the Universe and expanding your consciousness along the way.

True spiritual growth happens in a space beyond judgement. It’s not all black and white, cut and dry – there are an infinite amount of shades of possibility within this beautiful rainbow called life.

Here is a list of 10 Things Spiritual People Need You to Know.

Please feel free to share this with your friends, your family or to anyone that might have you pigeon-holed as a kale eating, tie-dye wearing, woo-woo weirdo that favors using hummus over deodorant. (*note: not that there’s anything wrong with this xo).

1. You can be spiritual and say words like f@#$, t%ts and bullsheeto

Why? Because you are in control of your own language patterns. Remember your word is your wand and there are so many interesting and creative words in the English language (only saying English because that’s the language I’m writing in). If you want to curse or swear, it can be useful and decorative in so many situations.

2. You can be spiritual and express anger (appropriately of course)

It’s totally fine to get angry from time to time. It’s not natural to hold it in because you will emotionally implode. Spiritual people are allowed to experience the full range of emotions and don’t have to just be joyful and blissed out all the time. Remember, depression is anger turned inward.

3. You can be spiritual and not be a vegetarian or vegan

As long as you’re grateful and conscious about the source of your food, then what you eat is your own business. I’ve been a vegan for most of my life because I don’t like meat. If I condemn others for eating animals and I judge them, then I’m not following my own spiritual principles.

4. You can be spiritual and not meditate regularly or at all

Everything in life can be a meditation. It depends how naturally in the flow you are. Having the choice is what’s important.

5. You can be spiritual and love horror movies

If you’re cool with having certain images running around in your subconscious then good for you. You can love blood, guts and gore and just see it for what it is…entertainment. However, if you’re a super sensitive person I would highly recommend sticking to Disney movies.

6. You can be spiritual and not believe in God (The Universe)

This one is an interesting one, a personal journey. For some people it boils down to cultural beliefs, understanding and patterns from childhood.

7. You can be spiritual and be really really really RICH

You are worthy of attracting abundance. There is absolutely nothing wrong about manifesting wealth into your life. Cash and consciousness is a super-sexy combination.

8. You can be spiritual and love fashion, reality TV and junk food

We are spiritual beings having a physical experience. Have fun along the way and don’t take everything so seriously.

9. You can be spiritual and not be religious

There is deep spirituality in every religion, although that spirituality doesn’t need to be contained by the doctrine of an organization. However, there is absolutely nothing wrong with following a path of faith.

10. You can be spiritual in any way that expresses the light in your soul on your own personal journey.

Nothing more needs to be said about this one.
