Supporting Your Best Life

January 29, 2016

Are you feeling empowered, connected and supported by the Universe in this moment, despite outer conditions that may appear frenzied, unsettling or challenging? There are always those who will get caught up in the bedlam, commotion and the turmoil of whatever is going on around them because they are addicted to creating drama. They revel in the chaos and confusion.

People and events often show up in your life experience to act as a mirror, a reflection of something that is going on within that you need to look at, something that needs closer consideration, release or healing. The information you receive by investigating the situation on a deeper level, will offer you the opportunity to understand how or why someone's behavior or a specific incident is disturbing you. You can then take the appropriate actions to create change if you wish to do so.

Each time something comes up in your life that pushes your buttons, it's a great time to develop some self-awareness and the perfect chance to grow your soul a little more. Encountering upheaval or even pandemonium may occur to provide one with information and knowledge that is needed to broaden a perspective, allowing them to consider another point of view or alternative choices.




It is up to those of us who understand that we do not have to allow what is going on to keep us down and out, to remain vigilant about re-connecting and getting our energy back on track with where we want to go on our journey of creating and supporting our best life ... remembering that all is in divine order and unfolding just as it needs to. It's about surrendering to the universe in faith that all is truly well and that we are supported in every moment if we remain open to allowing things to happen without trying so hard to control the outcome.

It is imperative to focus our attention upon that which inspires us, to stay aligned with what energizes and nourishes our spirit. As we continually look for ways to nurture ourselves and stay in a higher space, we automatically help and support each other and the planet by funneling positive energy into the situation, which in turn ripples out to others. The high level vibe that is present will then grow and affect more and more than we could ever possibly imagine. Remember, whatever we focus upon expands. It is in this capacity that we can be of the greatest service to the whole.

I've found myself in the last several months, more often than I'd like to admit, veering off the path of being in alignment with the energy of where I like to be present - the one that I know creates and supports the highest opportunities for living my best life. So many things have been coming up, several of them unexpected, situations that I've never had to deal with in the unfamiliar territory of caring for and assisting my elderly parents. Feeling quite lost and overwhelmed is almost an understatement at times. I've learned to cut myself some slack as I navigate new waters looking for a life raft here and there in the often choppy and stormy seas of the unknown on this voyage.




I've also come to realize on a deeper level that asking for help and/or simply just surrendering to Spirit is quite often the best choice in circumstances where you are at a loss for what to do or where to turn. When we loosen our hold and relax our death-grip around the situation, we are better able to see innovative or greater possibilities and solutions that are often right in front of us.

I encourage all of you to find the best ways to maintain optimum support for yourself and use them consistently and often. Share the tools that have worked for you with others who may find them useful as well. I truly believe that we're all in this together and we're on this earth to help and encourage one another any way we can.

Connect each day to people and things that uplift you and help keep you focused in a good feeling direction. I cannot emphasize enough the positive impact that generating a high level state or vibration does for sustaining our greatest state of well-being. It's the utmost in ultimate self-care!

If you ever feel you need some outside assistance to maintain or jumpstart your state of being to a more positive place, then ask the universe to bring you what will serve you most. You may find it through family, friends, maybe with a professional of your choice, a class, in a book or a weekend workshop. There are many options to consider when determining what may be best for you. Just keep in mind that nothing is more important than taking care of you and your needs first, which in turn allows you to offer the best possible you that you can be for others and the entire planet.




I invite you to join me as I reaffirm my commitment to keeping my energy level as high as possible as I focus my attention in whatever direction calls me to accomplish creating and maintaining my best life. I envision the grandest of all outcomes, knowing that in doing so, it will support all life in the process as we continue on this incredible journey of generating the most amazing version of who we wish to be ... wherever it takes us ... woo-hoo!
