The past few weeks have been interesting. I was feeling less than joyful.
Each moment I used the tools that I have acquired to shift myself into something that felt better.
It wasn't always easy and I wish I could say that the change happened overnight-but it didn't. Sometimes I felt like crying out "what the f***k?!" I found myself saying "Come on guys-give me something to work with here!"
And their (The Group) response was "This is what you have to work with, you can do this." and so I did."
I used my Access Consciousness tools and a new inspired tool that they gave me, which involved working with my higher self and I reached out for help.
One morning, this week, I woke up and felt different-I felt happy. My car door needed fixing at a cost of $600 dollars and still I was happy. My son's van needed $900 worth of work, which he could not afford and so we paid the bill and I was still happy! Other news that might have put me into a tailspin, arrived and still I found myself happy.
And so today my life feels good even though nothing looks like it has changed, it feels different. The change in me occurred moment by moment as I delved into my "stuff", you know all the niggly s**t that pushes your buttons and came out the other side.
It is so simple to do when I remember to get out of my own way. I have no idea what I shifted as I worked but I clearly feel the results.
So, if you are reading this I want you to know that as you change, life changes. You are the only one with the power to change your perceptions which will change your world.
Try asking yourself these two questions as a beginnning point. "How does it get better?" and "What else is possible?"
If you want to delve deeper, reach out to someone who can help you into something different. Reach out to the encouragers in your life and stay away from the commiserators, unless you want to stay exactly where you are. Your choice, as it was mine. You get to choose. You have the power!
You are not broken. You do not need to be fixed. Everything you are is enough.
I can hear the cries of despair by some of you. But, what if this were true?
Everytime, without fail, when I am with someone during a session, I see who they are and I am in awe of their being. I see them in all their magnificence.
Now to be truthful, this happens because I am working with loving energies who see only that. I, like many of you, can struggle to maintain that view when I am out in the world. However, it is getting easier and easier if I allow myself to see underneath the masks of being human on planet earth.
What if under all your so called brokeness is the real you struggling to unearth the treasures that you be? What if you are more than you allowed yourself to believe and when you begin to believe that all of your world will begin to change.
Change isn't always easy if we want it to look a certain way. What if it could unfold effortlessly and easily? What if they way it ends up is even better? It takes a little trust, some patience and a willingness to keep asking for the change and following the energies that show up. If health is an issue, just the right thing will show up for you. If it is relationships you may find a way into a better one or a new one. Keep asking questions and here are two to get you started that are great for any situation whether good or bad. How does it get better? What else is possible? (Courtesy of Access Consciousness)
Make sure you don't shut the door on change because it might be just what you wanted even if it is in disguise.
This past weekend I was busy marketing an aspect of my business at an event. It was a wellness show, where I was facilitating Bars. The Bars are 32 points on the head, that when lightly touched, begin the process of erasing your hard drive and creating space for more ease and joy in your life.
At the Langley Wellness Event, I had the joy of running Bars on a sweet four year old who was born with a number of significant challenges. Her mother had brought her, hoping to find something else, that might help her daughter.
Savanna was not too happy about being in this place. It turns out that she is a very aware little girl. She reads her mom's mind. I am sure that she felt and heard all the judgements and conclusions as people saw her. And the energy was quite intense in the event with all the healers that were present.
Her mom got her on my table and she did not want to be there. I began by talking with Savanna. I asked her what her favourite things to do were. She rides a therapy pony, called Ladybug, once a week. As I talked and asked questions, that her mom answered, her eyes turned to me. It was in that moment that I told her how perfect she was and what an amazing and smart little girl she was. I put my fingers on the first point and told her that she wasn't broken and there was nothing to fix. What a beautiful being you are Savanna and her eyes closed and she drifted off.
Her mom was surprised that she was so relaxed. While I ran the Bars she and I chatted. The experience was magical and full of grace. It would take too long to relay everything. Suffice to say I was left feeling like I had been blessed.
"And you were Linda. Anytime that two or more beings commune in the energy of love, unconditional love, there is a blessing. It is why being with your furry friends can be so joyful.
Each of you has the opportunity to create those moments in every encounter that you have during your day. When you are able to be out of judgment and see each other as we do-maginificent beings of light and love-then you are in love. This is not the love that planet earth has named-for that love is entangled with so many rules and conclusions, that you make it hard sometimes to feel it. But when you step out of judgment and allow yourself to be in gratitude for another, for their being then their being steps into that with you. It may be in a small way that if you don't pay attention, you will miss and it may be in a large way that blows your socks off!
The blessings are abundant on planet earth and each of you has the same need to be seen as not broken-perfect in the perceived imperfections. You are all playing at being human and some of you are very, very good at it. So good that you forget you are more than that.
You have the opportunity to remind others by seeing them, as we do and you will always be given the same gift along the way, someone who sees you as we do.
You are not alone on the journey you launched yourself on. You are not broken and there is nothing to be fixed.
We are in gratitude for each of you-are you?"

Tis the season of taxes for those of us in North America. Culturally and collectively we have an energy of angst around doing our taxes.
What if we have to pay? What if we don't get a refund, cause a refund would be very nice!
I hand our taxes off to an accountant, because they are not for us to do. The more you involve yourself in investing and such, the easier it is to miss things!
I have been re-reading the book Money Isn't The Problem-You Are! by Gary Douglas, founder of Access Consciousness. It is a book that opens space for me to consider another way of viewing my money.
One thing he writes is that wouldn't you rather make lots and lots of money and pay the tax, rather than begrudge the government the taxes you pay? Now there is an interesting point of view. He tells a story of a gentleman that got involved in an organization that believed that taxes were unconstitutional and his income went down. Mmmmmmm.....because money flows where attention goes?
But, back to tax season. Ours are done and we are getting refunds, but those refunds will be set aside to cover what might be, an unfavourable decision by CRA (IRS in the U.S.) regarding previous years. So, our tax season is ongoing. Letters go back and forth and today I have to call them to receive some clarity on the latest letter.
That aside, I wonder what it would be like to have this a non issue, because, I am making a mucho dollars in a never ending stream of financial abundance. So, I ask myself this question, because Access Consciousness is about being in the question;
"What would it take for me to create a continuing stream of financial abundance in my life?" Anything that doesn't allow that will I destroy and uncreate x a godzillion? (Of course I will!) good and bad, right and wrong, POD, POC, all nine, boys, shorts and beyonds! (Access Clearing Statement)
But of course I know it isn't that simple-I still have to take action. I have to pick up the phone and take care of business. I have to jump in the opportunities that show up, after asking, if they are right for me. There is one that has shown up and frankly I am sitting on the fence with it. It feels right but-oh the but! What is that but-clearing statement time!
So, for those of you stressing over tax season, what if you didn't have to? What if you could create financial abundance in your life? What could you do with all that money?
Let's face it-without enough money life can be challenging and with a lot of money you can contribute a lot to the world. You won't think twice about what you tip or if you can afford to donate to the cause of your choice. You can send your kids to college, you can have fabulous vacations, you can.....well you get the idea, oh and you can pay the tax man his share, because after all that is the current society we live in. Why fight it? Why not make it a non issue and have more money coming in than goes out?
As with all things-sometimes you just have to tweak things a little to get great results!
I baked a batch of biscuits from the Wheat Belly Cookbook. The two previous recipes were not quite to my taste. The recipes called for ground flaxseed-too much for my taste! What could I do to change this?
This time I decided to not use flaxseed and just up the amount of the other two flours (chickpea and almond). It worked beautifully! I ended up with a great biscuit to accompany my curried beef stew!
Life can be like that-you just have to ask the question and be open to a little or a whole lot of tweaking until you get the desired results. The universe has your back but unless you ask a question it can't easily offer you up your solution!
What questions could you ask? How about
"What is it going to take to change this?"
"How do I do this?"
"What energy, space and consciousness can I be to facilitate the change I want to see?"
"What next step do I need to take?"
As soon as you ask the universe puts the wheels in motion and an inspired thought will come to you (like how about I leave the flaxseed out and up the other flours) or someone will call you with a proposal or an e-mail will show up in in-box. Doors begin to open as long as you stay in the question!
Questions open up possibilities and judgments and conclusions shut them down. For instance, since I am not by nature a huge baker, I might have decided that the cookbook was correct and I couldn't do it any other way. I am glad I asked the question!
Wheat Free Biscuits-My Way
1 cup almond meal flour
1 cup chickpea flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
5 tablespoons cold butter
4 egg whites
Preheat oven 350 F line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix flours and baking powder, cut in cold butter.
Mix on high the egg whites until soft folds develop.
Gently fold the egg whites into the flour and butter mix until well mixed.
Drop spoonfuls onto the baking sheet. I got six biscuits but they could be smaller.
Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
These past few weeks I have had the pleasure of working with Adera and Ryan of www.spirocreative.ca (please check them out!)
Adera picked up my business card in my favourite pizza place in White Rock. She e-mailed me and asked if I was interested in having a video done for my business and could we meet.
Funnily enough I had been musing about how to go about having that kind of presence on the internet. I had been fooling around with video myself but hadn't had the kind of product I was after.
I am a big believer in following the energy and it felt light and also a contribution in the years to come. It turns out in the short term that it has been a remarkable collaboration. I love the video that Ryan filmed and Adera's concept. They make a wonderful team and bring a joyful and creative vision to their work. I offered to help Adera with an event she is hosting and she happily accepted, which means I get to play in a different playground. She even let me run her Bars yesterday! This is what she sent to Access Consciousness Facebook page.
I had my first BARS, Access Consciousness experience with facilitator Linda
Adsetts yesterday and it erased my old thought patterns and beliefs instantly. I
was trying to say after the session how I couldn't have this or that and the
words literally wouldn't come out of my mouth. My body & mind wouldn't allow
it. That was very cool! I am looking forward to seeing the results through out
the next few weeks too. What a wonderful way to reach clarity and infinite
possibility. Thank you.
Ryan wrote on their blog about their experience working with me. I was in tears. Ryan and Adera are amazing! Apparently they think I am too. That is pretty nice.
Meanwhile, I am in gratitude for the gifts that have shown up for me! I had been saying that I wanted to work with people and I liked the young energy. The universe heard and delivered.
I cannot wait to see how this newest adventure unfolds.
