“WILD” GRATITUDE

tHANKSGIVING

What’s more, we are living in what appears to be very scary times and the result is that more people are experiencing feelings of distress and worry. Whether or not you watch the news, you would have to be living under a rock to not be aware of the fact that our world appears to be in a broken, volatile and unbalanced state.

No one wants to be controlled and yet fear is a very effective way to control people and keep you stressed out, helpless and hopeless.

You might ask “how can I possibly be happy when (you fill in the blank) is happening?” I know (first hand) it’s tough when bad things happen whether it’s on avery personal level or globally. Let’s be clear, it is quite normal to go through a grieving process, if that is the case.

Beyond that, consider this: “How many hours of worry, fretting or stress does it take to change a situation?” The answer of course is zero.

We have within us the power to change our thoughts and thus how we feel and how we perceive our world. We know this and yet our troubled thoughts hold us hostage.

There are as many ways to deal with stress and worry and ways to raise yourhappiness level as there are cures for the common cold.  But one concept, one virtue — so appropriate for this time of year — which seems to outshine them all — is Gratitude. It is one of the most powerful and important steps in my Living Miraculously program and a step that I like to call “Wild Gratitude.”

Wild Gratitude is unrestrained, uninhibited deep reverence for the things in our life that we so often take for granted. It is much more than appreciation. Look around you at the natural miracles that abound in your life: The bright blue sky, the luminous stars, the flourishing plants, the sturdy trees, the vast ocean and breathtaking mountains. You think this is just another day in your life? It’s not. It is a gift that is given to you and it deserves the reference of gratitude. Respond to the uniqueness of this day as if it is the first…or last day of your life. And know this day will never come again.

Wild Gratitude urges you to open your heart, sending love to the people in your life that you treasure — and those you have never met. Wild Gratitude urges you to bring joy into your life and to be grateful for all things, all the time. What does that look like, “be grateful for all things, all the time?”

 

“You’re grateful your friend didn’t die… if they do die you’re grateful that you knew them. You’re grateful for what has happened…. And you’re grateful for what hasn’t happened.”

 

Wild Gratitude makes you more joyful, less stressed, less self-centered and more optimistic. It improves your immune system and your creativity, you sleep better and you make better decisions.

You want to practice Wild Gratitude, right?

• Get out pen and paper. List everything that’s happening in your life now and all the people that you have a connection to on one side of the paper. On the other side write at least one thing that you are grateful for (even any challenges) as a result of this experience or person. Yes, you can start with the easy ones. But, you gotta do the tough ones too! (They’re the most enlightening!) Keep at it, even if it takes days and you’ll figure out how to “flip the switch” on your challenges.

• Be more aware of your surroundings and the priceless gift of each day.

•  Meet the eyes of all people you come in contact with and send them rays of love and healing.

If you make Wild Gratitude a practice it will change your life, I promise!  Wishing you a beautiful and grateful Thanksgiving.  Live Miraculously!

 

With Wild Gratitude,

NUMEROLOGY NOTES: WAYNE DYER, THE WORLD AND YOU!

I have been a Numerologist or over 20 years and yet I don’t often talk about this fascinating subject in my blogs. So this month I’m going to pull back the curtain just a bit, to give you a glimpse of how the numbers work within this frame work of our physical reality.First, I would like to address the recent passing of spiritual teacher Wayne Dyer. His death came as a surprise to many of us even though we were aware that he had leukemia. On a whim, I ran a chart on Dr Dyer and it made perfect sense that 11/2 would appear in his chart. 11/2 is inspirational and considered a Master number in Numerology. On the flip side I noticed that his chart was not without its challenges both personally and professionally. 

As far as his rise to fame as an international motivational speaker his chart indicated that he had a very strong drive for success (8) that often pushed him to achieve when others might give up.Dr Dyer is of course, well known for his writings and he often said that he was guided by Divine Source. This came through so strongly in his chart. His intuitive sense was highly charged and indicated getting “flashes of inspiration and guidance.” You might be wondering if his chart indicated that he would pass this year. No authentic Numerologist could or would ever predict something as personal as death. I will say his chart indicated transitions, but that could mean many things in someone’s chart. Dr Dyer made a difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of people and no doubt his writings will continue to have a positive influence on many more. He will be missed.                                                                numbers                   

 THE WORLD IN NUMBERS

The world is under the influence of an 8 vibration this year and yes, there are forces at work that are powerfully driving the economy worldwide. There are many aspects to the “8.” It is all about wealth, worth, personal power and ego. It is also about fairness, integrity and honesty. 8 is also the number of Karma and so in many respects this is a year of worldwide payback. If the drive towards money is lacking moral principals, there can be a huge negative backlash.                                                   

   WHAT ABOUT THE USA? 

Briefly, the United States is in a 1 personal year and this indicates brand new beginnings. One of the biggest stories this year was the Supreme Court ruling of same sex marriage. We see that more and more companies are merging. The number 1 is also an aggressive, male dominated number and this is perfectly mirrored in the out spoken and defiant manner of Donald Trump. I would expect that September will also bring some interesting new beginnings, especially in the financial sector.

But what about you? To find your Personal Year number simply add your month of birth and your day of birth to the current calendar year and reduce to a single digit. If your total is “10″ then you would add 1 + 0 =1. Example:

2

13

2015

2030

2 +1+3+ 2+0 +1+5 = 2030= 2+0+3+0 =5

Your Personal Year runs from Jan 1st to Dec 31st. Other aspects run from birthday to birthday. I believe knowing the vibrations of your name and birth date can  give you a “head’s up” and help you better navigate through life’s sometimes rocky waters. Having an understanding of your talents and challenges offers you the opportunity to work with these energies, not against them. Following, is a short sampling of the Personal Year interpretations. Enjoy and check out the special below! 

Personal Year 1

This is the beginning of a brand new 9 year cycle. This is the time when you have more control over destiny than any other year in the cycle of 1-9. It is the time to be independent and courageous. It is the time for new beginnings in any and all areas. Be courageous!

Personal Year 2

In contrast to last year’s outgoing and assertive energy, the key words this year are patience, cooperation and subservience. The year is full of dualities. The 2 is feminine in nature and thus enhances your “yin” energy promoting intuition and emotions. Females take precedence.

Personal Year 3

The 3 year focus is on emotions & creativity. Your ability to bring creativity and expression to your everyday life will be enhanced. This is especially true if you have any artistic talent. This is also a time when your emotions may be more often triggered. It can also mean expansion and opportunity and lots of social activity.

Personal Year 4

The 4 year now demands attention to the practical. For some this can be a hard working and foundational period. The 4 is a number of “karma” and will begin to bring in some of your harvest from the previous 3 years. Some people may feel limited, overworked and boxed in.

Personal Year 5

This year the key words are change and restlessness. You may even feel the need to transform many areas of your life. The year can be liberating in many ways… if you can go with the flow.  In Numerology we refer to the 5 year as the fun house year because it is the most unpredictable of years!

Personal Year 6

This year the vibrations center on home, family and spirituality. Many people redecorate renovate or even physically move. The year vibrates to the planet Venus – the planet of beauty and love. There is a “partnering” aspect to the year and this can be either romantic or business. Energy is family love and also pets.

Personal Year 7

The 7 year is closely aligned to the 2 year in the sense of the emotional, feminine and subservient aspects of the year. Spiritually, this is a very important year as the # 7 is related to the God Force. Personally, I have found that two things always occur in a 7 year: #1- decisions are made concerning important issues and #2- acquaintances not heard from or seen in awhile will re appear or re establish contact with you.

Personal Year 8

While the focus last year was on introspection and dealt with matters of the spirit, this year deals with matters of the material and physical world. If last year you entertained ideas of changing some aspect of your life, this year you have the force and determination to forward your plans. It is the time to be organized, efficient and to use your critical judgment skill.

Personal Year 9

I usually ask people when they are in this cycle, if they remember where they were 9 years ago -and if there were any similarities. In this cycle there is usually a clearing away of that which is not needed in your life or that which is meant to be cleared in order to begin your next cycle of 1-9. You will likely release anything negative or outworn in your life, be it business, material or emotional. If you don’t – the Universe will do it for you.

Blessings,

Michele

HOW TO CREATE MIRACLES “OPEN YOUR HEART”

Open heart 1If you had to create an image of February you would, most likely, conjure up visions of hearts and flowers, love and lovers. And although my first instinctive response was to naturally write about couples in relationship, something (spirit?) urged me to reach further and higher.

Following my “heart” I researched February and found that the name originates from the Latin word februa, “to cleanse.” Februalia signified the festivals of purification celebrated in Rome during this month. And what, dear reader, is more beautiful that a pure heart?  A pure heart has no hypocrisy, no judgments, no hidden agendas.

“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion.

If you want to be happy, practice compassion.”

                                                 – Dalai Lama

I know from the conversations I have with my clients that many people are being challenged on so many levels these days and the word I hear most often is “transition.”  It’s easy to get so distracted with all our to-do’s that our lives and our vision can become myopic, and we have little time for what is most important.

And what is most important? In my opinion, it is to live with a pure and open, compassionate heart. A pure heart is the doorway to the divine.  A pure heart is marked by the uncompromising desire to serve the greater good. What’s more, a pure and compassionate heart is a beautiful model which helps shape compassionate behavior in our children.

We know that as we give, we receive and the benefits of heart based living are many. And what’s more – when we empty ourselves of our own problems to serve another, we allow the universe to more clearly communicate to us the next right thing to do in our own lives.  But you already knew that, didn’t you?

There are so many ways to open your heart in meaningful action and that you can incorporate into your everyday life. Here is another way  with a visualization that I created to open my heart and how to create miracles in your life.

“Open My Heart – Visualization” *

 Place your right hand over your heart, breathing in and out deeply. Imagine a beautiful pink bubble of light surrounding you. Slowly, mentally say the words “OPEN MY HEART” three times.  As you say these words feel a rush of gratitude and love fill your heart and your entire body. Now imagine that in front of appears someone whom you love very much, whether that person is alive or someone who has passed on. Look deeply into their eyes and feel the connection, spirit to spirit.  Say the words “OPEN MY HEART” 3 times, sending them so much love, so much healing and gratitude from your heart to theirs. Your hearts are now in coherence. Notice how beautiful it feels to do this.

Now imagine that another person has appeared in front of you. This is someone whom you’ve have had or have feelings of disappointment or anger or resentment towards.  They are standing there not saying a word but you notice they seem somehow softer. Look deep into their eyes and imagine that you can see or feel the pure energy of their spirit that resides within them…not their personality….only their spirit.  Now Say the words, “OPEN MY HEART” three times, sending them so much love, healing and gratitude from your heart to theirs in the form of a beautiful pink light.  Notice how beautiful it feels to do this. And then you notice that amazingly, this light is now coming back to you from their heart to yours. Your hearts are now in coherence and you are overwhelmed with feelings of love and gratitude and humbleness. In this state you are at peace, you are one with the world and you can bring healing to anyone or anything!

Namaste!

Michele
