self awareness

Looking in the Mirror

Be aware of how you talk about yourself and your life. We are our own worst enemy. Our thoughts and words about ourselves must stay positive. You must believe in yourself, your path, your dreams. Embrace all the positives and stop focusing on the negative. Waya has a task for you … are you up for that task?

Many Blessings,

Reminding Ourselves of the Light

WP_20140925_007For a while there I had allowed someone to make me feel less than what I am. I lost the light that is inside me. It was still there, NOTHING will get rid of it, but… I lost it. I let doubt in and I could not see my own light for the veil of doubt in front of it. I think a lot of us do this from time to time. We allow life situations and unhealthy relationships to cloud our light and we forget for a moment who we really are and what we are capable of.

It is a great feeling though, when we are able to see past that veil of doubt and wall of negativity and we regain sight of our light. In that moment, we are filled with a fire that seems unstoppable. There isn’t anything that could bring us down or get in our way of reaching our goals and ambitions. Realizing our own light is empowering! We must work hard to keep sight of that light and stay on guard to protect it from being lost in a cloud doubt and negativity that others try to plant inside us.

People like that aren’t needed in your life, the right people will help you shine that light and fan the flames of your fire. The right people aren’t afraid of your light, they will happily join you, creating a bigger beam.

Remember this: Your light is always there… only sometimes it is clouded by muck. Grab a broom and sweep it away! Let your light shine!

Many Blessings,

The Sun Card

IMG_0675Shuffling my cards today I ask for guidance to help those on a rocky path.. move forward with a bit more ease.

The first card I pulled was Life Force card which didn’t feel right for whatever reason so I put it back in the deck and shuffled a little bit more. The card for the day is finally revealed: The Sun Card

When you have learned to trust your inner self … you’ll no longer need outside help.  That’s what all of our striving is all about: to find our own, unique way, to live our own realizations, to follow our own inner light. The Sun Card is a sign to let us know that we are close to finding this within ourselves.

Many Blessings,

Daily Insight – Medicine Woman

Take a good look at this card … she has inside her a light ever glowing.. the sun although it sets, it’s light continues to shine. She also reveals to us an endless river, flowing from the heart this river is symbolic of her love. She holds in her hands, fire. Surrounding her is Spirit and Universal energy. She reminds us of what we each carry inside ourselves. We have the tools and the power to create whatever life we want for ourselves and we have the ability to heal with our own resources.

She holds her head up, proud of who she is and what she carries inside herself. She knows what power she holds and she uses it wisely and to the best of her abilities.

Know your own abilities, know that you have within you the necessary tools and resources to create the life you want. The Medicine Woman does not wait to become.. SHE IS.

Become aware of your own abilities, your own medicine inside… and you will see your world transform.

Many Blessings,

Awakening To Your True Self

Lets talk today about Awakening to your true self..

These are my thoughts alone so please don’t think I am saying that any of this
is ultimate truth for all.. because we all need to find our own truths .. and
that indeed is a part of awakening to the true self.

I feel as though we are born to be a certain person … or at least a
particular type person .. we are all born with particular gifts and it is for
us to find those gifts and develop them .. and then take them out into the
world and share them.

As we develop and grow we try on many faces. Hoping to find one that really
fits and feels right.

Awakening to our true self is identifying the face that needs no mask.
Identifying with your own soul .. finding the true you .. and then allowing
that person to be free.

Awakening causes us to put down our masks and be true to not just all that come
in contact with us but also true to ourselves.

We must awaken to the gifts we have been given and we must put them to use.

We must stop finding faults within and stop holding ourselves back with self
created fears and doubts.

We must find love for ourselves and then that love is free to pour out into the

Be proud and not ashamed of who you are.

Be strong and hold your head high. Do not allow the ideas and thoughts of
others make you hide your gifts or any other part of who you truly are.

Awakening to true self gives you freedom from such negative thoughts others may
project onto you.

Awakening to true self  … makes you aware of not only your surroundings in
the world.. but also to your own thoughts, actions and gifts.

When you are truly awake .. you see the world with new eyes … like the fog
has been lifted and suddenly things start becoming clear.

It’s not something that happens overnight, so don’t sit there expecting that to

I’m sorry to say that there is not set ritual.. ceremony .. life experience ..
or certain age that the awakening will happen. The awakening will happen
when the time is right and when you are ready.

You might say, “Oh I am ready now”, so I will do ceremony on next full moon
and from that point on I will be awake.. quiet giggle… I won’t say that it
won’t work. What I am saying is that it will work only if it is time and you
are TRULY ready .. so don’t give up ..  just continue the journey as you are
guided and learn to trust your inner senses.

The awakening process is a long and often painful one.. again, I will say …
well worth the effort.. 🙂

Many blessings to all
