All I want for Christmas...

Christmas isn't my favorite time of year for a few reasons. As a kid it was always a blast going to Grandmas house for presents and fun times with all my cousins. Great food enjoyed by all and waiting for Santa in the back room. But after my Grandmother's death in 1976, I just haven't enjoyed Christmas too much.

Every year, I cringe when I see holiday decorations in August hitting the retail floors. As I've gotten older, I see that Christmas really is all about how much money people can spend - on lavish gifts, dinner and cocktail parties. My son is older now so baking cookies for Santa is history. As a matter of fact, my son tells me that he thinks the fantasy of Santa Claus is a cruel joke played on kids. I have to say, I kind of agree!

As we go into Winter Solstice of longer days and shorter nights. I focus on planting seeds for new dreams and lighting candles, setting my intentions on - The 5 Year Plan. I'll ask for the power to be the best that I can be as a mother and friend. For support from the powers above to grow those seeds into my dreams.

As I wind down from an incredibly busy holiday season in the catering and gourmet to go retail business - I have to say one thing.


May your life be blessed with all the things in which you believe...

The Power of Pendulums

The power of the pendulum has been valued since ancient times for its ability to discover treasure, seek advice for love, locate something lost and increase intuitive abilities, teaches you how find success in your career, relationships, heal chakras and develop your higher self.

The Pendulum is not a religion but a mere scientific tool that when used with your own religion will embark you on an amazing discovery of your personal journey.

So what is a pendulum anyway? A pendulum is a type of weight that is suspended from a chain or string that is held between the index finger and thumb. The movement of the pendulum indicates energies; either negative or positive. This tool bridges the gap between the left brain that is LOGICAL with the INTUITIVE right brain. It is used to tap into the subconscious and bring light to everyday matters.

Interpreting the movement of the swinging pendulum, takes some skill and you will be able to tune into your intuition, find answers to questions and energy centers in the earth.

The pendulum is basically an amplifier that helps you access the unconscious and your higher self. You can get answers to anything you can come up with and everyone is capable of working with the pendulum however it requires practice and experimentation. You will make mistakes along the way however that is all part of the learning process with learning anything new. Through this process you will develop spiritually and mentally.

Pendulums can be a teardrop, ball, or spiral and can be made from crystal, wood, stone, copper, silver or brass.

Now…Ask anything with a pendulum and it will be answered with a YES or a NO. To determine the movement of the pendulum take a seated position at a desk or a table and place your feet flat on the floor resting your elbow on the table. Now hold the pendulum by the end of the chain between your index finger and your thumb. Make sure that your upper body and back remain straight so the energy can flow freely. Place your other hand on the table flat and relax, let your breath flow calmly. It’s important to note that you should not have any distractions and you shouldn’t do this when you are tired.

Hold the pendulum over the table and ask

What does YES look like?”

What does NO look like?

The turning directions of the pendulum can go up and down or left and right or in a circle clockwise or counter clockwise. You will need to practice this process for at least a week to determine the YES and NO answers. Do not deviate from the answers you have established. This process is called programming your pendulum. The next step is to test the programming.

Ask questions that you already know the answer to so you can determine that the programming is complete and accurate.

There are many uses for a pendulum and techniques that will guide you into better health, life decisions, wealth, chakras, meditations just to name a few. You will need to learn how to use charts to read answers and I strongly recommend getting a book, taking an online course and reading as much as you can before you begin using the pendulum.

Discover how it can be used to help transform our life.

You have to Believe to Receive my Friends...

Ever wonder if what I preach really works? Well just recently I experienced a few moments of belief when I was talking to my mother the other day and she was a really down. She was crying about having a really hard time with some finances and couldn’t see how things would get better. It hurt me to hear her sound so down and in disbelief. I had just gotten off a long shift at work where it was total chaos and I was stressed out from trying to get several catered events out the door all at one time.

When I called her I was expecting to hear her soft voice and knew it would make me feel better. But when she answered the phone she was crying and it kind of freaked me out. I was taken back by the tone in her voice and asked her what was wrong. She said she was feeling so down about things and how her money situation didn’t seem to going in the right direction. She felt so discouraged and was at her wits end.

I remember all too well how hard it is when things aren’t going to well and how that feeling can put you in a place of disbelief. Five years ago it was really hard for me and I felt as if I couldn’t get out of a terrible hole I was in, until I started using the power of positive thinking. After my father was ill and I was trying to get back on my feet after taking care of him and being out of work, I didn’t have a place to live and I had one week to find a home. I had no idea of how it was going to work out and everyone else was worried for me. But I decided at that moment that I didn’t know how it was going to happen, it just was. I got my old job back at the catering company on a fluke and I found the house that ended up being the place that I still live right now. I knew it was only temporary, because I believed.

I mentioned to her that her situation was only temporary and that she needed to create a positive energy source to bring good into her life. Feeling down and sad would only encourage more negativity and that is something she needed to get rid of instead of attract.

She said that they had applied for a credit card and was hoping to get it in the mail to bridge to the finances until some work opened up. One thing that I said to her to was live in the moment and to not look too far into the future with expectations or she would be disappointed. That she needed to take it minute by minute, day by day and something would unfold. We don’t know what is going to happen in the next few hours or the next day. So being upset about it and feeling down doesn’t bring any glory into our lives.

We visited for a few minutes and we hung up. She went by the post office and few minutes later I got a text that read….”We got the credit card!” I sent one back that read “see…”

We didn’t talk for a couple of days and then when we did she was in much better spirits. I asked her how things were going and if she was keeping her head up and staying positive. She said she was and that she really enjoyed talking with me the other day. It made her really think and re-evaluate her emotions.

She also said “Guess what?...You’re not going to believe this! Honey just got a new job and he starts tomorrow!”

Now if that isn’t proof of what of I preach, I don’t know what is…As I say…You have to BELIEVE to RECEIVE. You see – if you don’t put your emotions into a positive place and know that you know that somehow it will all work out then you will never experience the positive power of the laws of attraction.

Try it and see what happens in your life! I bet you will be surprised.

Follow Your Intuition...

Ever had a moment where you had a feeling strange feeling about something but you couldn’t put your finger on it? Then later you realized that your gut or inner guidance was trying to tell you something? I call it Gypsy Intuition and it is a powerful tool that we all have but some never truly develop it.

So what is intuition anyway? Well it’s knowing something without any words and having a sense of something without explanation. It often comes to you as thoughts, sensations or feelings that you hardly notice until later. You look back and think “I knew I was supposed to do that” or “I had a bad feeling about that.”

Each of us is intuitive and we receive guidance in a variety of ways. Your emotions speak to you and show you ways to follow our heart. Your mind gives you inspiration for new ideas. It will tell you when something is good or bad for you and you can learn to distinguish these thoughts to make the right decisions. You see your intuition is constantly guiding you into a better place…if you follow it.

Did you know that your intuition is the really the voice of your soul? Think about that for a minute. Your soul is speaking to you and if you listen you will find ways to bring yourself into higher path and purpose. When you follow your intuition you will be free flowing and more energy will be passing through you when you don’t follow it your life will be a struggle.

The first thing you need to do to develop your intuition is to get in touch with your emotions. Feelings are little flags that signal your attention. The next time you have a negative feeling about something or someone, don’t disregard it, dig deeper and try to understand what your intuition is trying to tell you. Things like if you are seeing the wrong person and you gut is telling you so but you continue to ignore it can be very painful in the end. Believe me, I know from experience. Or maybe you should take a certain job or purchase a new home or car. You might not like what you are hearing or you ignore it. Then later find out that you should have followed your intuition saved yourself a lot of pain, bad experience or discomfort.

The next thing to do is to strengthen your intuition. Keep a notebook close to you, and make notes when you have a certain insight and then see if it comes true. Another fun exercise is to make some predictions and see how many you get right. In time you will strengthen that intuition muscle.

Get into a quiet place and center yourself. Follow your breathing, in and out…relax with every breath you take.

Make a connection with your heart and imagine that your heart is directly connected to the truth and trust it.

Then make a connection with something that you are curious about and ask your question. Invite your body to lean in (such as yes I want that). When you pull back that means that it’s not good for you or you don’t want to go there.

Then wait for your intuition to give you a signal and see if you can find the answer. Be patient, it could take few minutes to come through to you depending on your ability to fully process the request. Practice this process and watch how your intuitive abilities grow you and you become happier with the direction you are taking and happiness in your life.

Thank you for stopping by my friend…Have a magical day!
