How to wake up each day


True or false? Every morning your alarm clock startles you out of a nice, sound sleep. 


You turn it off, roll over, and (I'm guessing) roll out of bed. 

AND YOU'RE OFF, literally. 

Try this.

Turn your alarm off, roll over onto your back and place your hands by your sides, palms up. 

Take a deep breath in and let it easily escape back out. 

One more time. Deep breath in, easy exhale out. 

Extend an invitation to Source: please send a good surprise my way today. 

Deep breath in, easy exhale out. 

Deep breath in, easy exhale out. 

Now, roll out of bed and start your day. 

When that good surprise comes, because it will, jot it down somewhere or take a picture just so you can begin building a library of goodness that comes when you ask for it. 

Live. Sleep. Repeat.


Laying your cards down on the table


Every month I lay my cards down on the table, take a deep breath and reach inside these tiny little envelopes to receive a message. 

These are messages that I channel for myself, once a year, in one sitting. When I finish I tuck them in an envelope and place them on my desk, which doubles an an altar, of sorts. Every month I open one. 

The one you see in the foreground is the message that appeared for this month. I opened it yesterday. This morning when while I was shaping a few loafs of oatmeal-maple-raisin-walnut dough (because sweet JESUS I can't stop making bread these days) there was a voice, THAT voice saying, "Hurry up and get outside." I connected the dots of this month's message and THAT voice. I hurried up. I got outside.

And this is what was waiting...


So why am I sharing this? 

This is my first week with my days to myself in roughly a month, but really it's my first week with emerging clarity in well over five months. I had big plans for today that started with bread and meditation and then writing and photography—all of which technically is happening but not the way my tiny little brain planned. Here's the thing: if I didn't open that card yesterday I would have missed this morning completely. It was not the morning I imagined, but it was the morning I received. With gratitude for All That Is.

How willing are you to receive all that you can't possibly imagine? That might be the most important question you ever have to answer. OPEN, sweet heart.


Two things—If you want to try walking through the next 12 months with your own set of channeled messages, visit my shop.  If you're local, consider joining me November 18th for two hours In The Company Of Angels.

Whatever you do today: make the most of it. xo

A word (or two) on faith...

I spent a little time channeling this morning after meditation and I decided to record it, instead of writing it. Even as I listen back, my fingers long to turn my voice into text and edit the bejesus out of this. I'm not going to do that, because that is what this is all about, handing over control to the powers that be. Annnnnnd, being okay with doing so. 

This is definitely a message for me, but maybe it's a message for you, too. 

Head North

When I started writing little love notes to myself back in 2010 I didn't really understand how it would change my life. 

I didn't realize the power of my words. I didn't know that writing one sentence could reel in more joy. After all, it takes so little effort to pen one positive thought a day. Shouldn't the road to joy be a little more work? Isn't happiness on the other side of a very high mountain? And how, in God's name, can writing one little positive sentence help you hang on to bliss indefinitely?

My experience with this process has very slowly, but surely, rewired my brain. I'm not saying that I'm floating on a cloud 24/7 (I'm not) or that I don't experience things I'd rather not experience (I do). What I am saying though is that this process of writing a love note has helped me tap into my own power, it reminds me (daily) that I am in charge of orchestrating my own happiness and it helps me stay connected to the Universe in a way that is just lovely (and often surprising). In essence, it keeps my head aligned with my very own North. 

I want you to experience this for yourself in 2017 so I created a little love note package for you to give it a go. There are 12 tiny notes a feather pen and a set of really easy instructions that will take you all of five minutes (or less) to follow. I think you'll be surprised by the way your seemingly random words carry you through the new year. In fact, I promise you will. 

Wishing you a sweet and peaceful holiday and a blessed new year.
