What helps me gain clarity when I make choices is asking myself, is this coming from a place of love? Or a place of fear? Hard work in the wrong direction comes with anger and resentment (choices based in fear energy.) Hard work in the right direction comes with pride and accomplishment (choices based in love energy.) The energy that you are in when you make a choice, and then take action, is what will continue. I invite you today, to be really conscious within your choices. Feel into them. Move towards the joy, and the joy will multiply. But never fear, if you start veering off course you will get lovely little reminders scattered throughout your path.

Today I invite you to notice the quality of your listening. Do I simply pause until it is my turn to speak again? Do I have a curiosity for a different point of view? Do I interrupt? As I notice the quality of my behavior, I have more desire to change. Here is a little trick. Pretend the other party is about to tell you how to win the lottery. In subtle detail. You would then pay attention, and savor every word. Think of each conversation you engage in as sacred. Hold space for each other. Within each sentence, lies little gifts for you. Take the time to receive them.
Today I wanted to write about a secret mission I created a few months back. I had an older oracle deck that I was no longer using, on self-care. I decided instead of just tossing it, it would be a lot more fun to sprinkle love all over my city. So that’s just what I did. Each day, I would place a card. Sometimes it would be along a walk, or stopping in for my morning coffee. It became such a fun experience for me, leaving little messages of love for strangers who would find them. The idea of giving without being attached to the outcome is a beautiful act of love. How can you give today without being found out?
Be a creator, not a reactor. When you are reacting to circumstances around you, you step out of creating the experience you want. You shift the momentum in the wrong direction. When you decide, it’s as good as yours. It’s all about how you feel. If you feel good, you are headed in the right direction. If you feel bad, you are headed in the wrong direction.
