CO-CREATING YOUR DIVINE NEW YEAR

Goddess of VisionAs your calendar year completes Dear Ones, remember that in the Realm of the Divine, there is no time.  Your New Year’s resolutions, goals, intentions only have the magic that you give them at this time of year, because, in the space of  “no time”, you can create a New Year ANY time!

We gently remind you of this only to suggest that there Is ALWAYS time to create anew.  And while the energy of the collective consciousness of your planet is directed at the conclusion of the time space continuum you know as 2010 and looking forward to the continuum you are calling 2011, the energy of completion and creation is ALWAYS available to you.

Cycles are part of the creation process of course.  There can be no ending so to speak without a beginning and vice versa.  So as you review this collection of energy you call 2010, be gentle with yourselves!  Everything has been and will continue to be unfolding in Divine Order.  That which you feel may not have been completed “when you should” – may not have been ready to be birthed yet.  Indeed, it may only have been the inspiration you needed to move you to the very next moment that WAS birthed.  It was and IS perfect Dear Ones!

That which you began was begun with the spark of inspiration and combined with physical action to bring It forth and yet – still that may have been ALL that was appropriate in that particular moment.  So we recommend you do not spend time releasing regrets for that which did not turn out the way you had expected or hoped, but rather, choose to acknowledge yourselves for all that did come to light, regardless of whether you believe it completed it’s cycle in the way you had imagined.

And as you are visioning into the coming year you are calling 2011, allow your visions to be sprinkled with the Divine Wisdom of your soul, your guides, your angels, all of the non-earthly realm, as well as calling on your Earth Spirits and Gaia herself to provide you the firm foundation and molten fire you will access to bring form to those visions, intentions and goals in their due course of creation.

We encourage you to believe in whatever “magic” helps you move into the Divine Creation birthing place.  Fairy Godmothers, Archangels, Winged Ones, the Stone People – all can and will contribute to your Divine Creation at your slightest request.

Allow your Divine Spirit and your Sacred Heart to co-create with you, drawing on the energy of miracles and infinite possibilities. Allow those deepest yearnings and hopes and dreams to burst forth into life now!  All that is required is your belief that so-called “fairy tales” do INDEED come true!

Allow yourself to trust in YOUR inherent infinite inner power – the power of your very Soul to continue its expansion as together you create the world of your dreams.

As you are Divine One, so shall you be.

Namaste.

BYE-BYE 2010 GIFT FOR YOU!

December 27, 2010 by  
Filed under Forgivness, Overcoming Fear, Practical Spirituality

So Christmas has passed and this week people traditionally do some sort of Year In Review process – examining what went right and what went differently than they had had hoped or expected.

As my end of year special gift to you,

I’d like to help you say BYE-BYE 2010

in the Infinite Inner Power way!

Are you ready to harness the powerful Universal energies that are present NOW to release all your negative energy from 2010?

As a result of the confluence of last week’s Winter Solstice, the full Lunar Eclipse, the Full Moon AND Mercury in Retrograde, the planets are aligned and configured in an extraordinary pattern that has not happened for over 300 years!  So let’s put ALL that extraordinary ENERGY to good use!

As my gift to you, on December 31st, as the sun sets here in Las Vegas, I will hold a Sacred Burning Bowl Ceremony to release YOUR 2010 and create space FOR YOU to reclaim ALL of your inner power that has leaked, lunged or was swept away despite your best intentions this year!

Here’s the plan to let go of the old and create the new:

1.            MAKE A LIST

Make a  list of EVERYTHING you want to let go of.  This will be stuff that didn’t go well for you this year :  a relationship that soured, debt that increased, the hurt feelings because someone said or didn’t say something that you interpreted in a painful way.  It could also be physical ailments or conditions.

It could also be getting rid of physical stuff like cleaning out a closet – in which case just DO IT and don’t put it on the list!  Even if you only have 30 minutes to clean out a kitchen drawer – DO IT, dump it and/or donate it!  Honestly that’s a GREAT start!  Physically cleaning out SOMETHING will shift the energy in your physical space and we are always looking to keep energy MOVING!

Now back to the list –

Here’s the top 3 things on my list of letting go:  (1) beating myself up about some financial decisions I made; (2) beating myself up because I gained weight this year; (3) beating myself up because my business hasn’t grown further. (Uh do we see a pattern here? Gulp!)

Don’t limit yourself to 3 things – write them all down – 20 or 200 – the more the better because this is an INCREDIBLE opportunity to reclaim your power for 2011.  The more you get rid of in the fear, guilt, pain, lack, loss department, the more room you are creating to receive love, light, joy, peace and prosperity!!

Now what to do with the list?

2.            TAKE RESPONSIBILITY

You had a part to be play in everything on that list.  Using my list as an example:  (1)  I take ownership of the financial decisions I made that I’m unhappy about.    I made the best choice I could at the time. In hindsight I have regret over it because I NOW recognize that in some cases I didn’t listen to my own intuition.  I created the situations which is a good thing because it also means I have the power to let it go and create differently!  (2) my weight gain – well I picked up the fork too many times and for the wrong reasons.  Acknowledging that gives me my power back, but continuing to beat myself up about – is no better than picking the fork up again and again.

You get the idea here right?  You have to cop that you had a hand in creating the challenges.  Even if it was something like an illness or an accident, there was something in your energetic vibration that made you susceptible to whatever happened.  You were creating a learning experience for yourself!  That’s the good news!  Now we want to learn what we need to and MOVE ON!!!!

(NOTE:  If you don’t see where you played a part in the situation you can do 2 things:  1) ignore it and choose to release it anyway or (2) send me an email (Steph [at] InfiniteInnerPower.com) so I can help you.)

3.            GO THE DISTANCE

There is some added power  to the process if you go public with your list.  Going public gets it out of your head and more importantly, out of the hands of your ego.  At a minimum it’s good to cop to what you want to let go of or are feeling guilty about to a trusted friend, spouse or Spiritual Advisor – that’s where I come in!

Here are some suggestions:

1.            Share the list with someone you trust.  The other person simply listens and says “Thank you for sharing this with me. I honor and respect your willingness to release these burdens.”

2.            Post  your list here in the comments section (perhaps not the 200 but the top 20 would be cool!) I will support you as stated in #1.

3.            Send the list to me in a sealed envelope marked BYE BYE 2010!  I promise I will not look in the envelope if it is marked properly.   My mailing address is 2433 E. Tropicana Ave., #455, Las Vegas, NV 89121, U.S.A.

4.            Email the list to me at Steph [at] InfiniteInnerPower.com

4.            THE RELEASE

As my gift to you, on December 31st, as the sun sets here in Las Vegas, I will hold a Sacred Burning Bowl Ceremony for all of the lists I have received via email, snail mail or posted here on the blog (Nos. 2-4 above).  (If you choose to share your list with someone besides me or even just keep it to yourself – that’s cool too of course! Just follow the instructions to below to create your own sacred ceremony.)

The Burning Bowl Ceremony involves moving into a meditative state and placing each of your lists (and mine!) in an appropriate (safe) container (like my BBQ).  I will set them alight and as the smoke rises I will speak a prayer into the Universe to the effect that that the energy of your pains, fears and frustrations is transformed, reshaped and returned to you as Inner Strength, Inner Peace and Love for yourself and for humanity. I will remain in meditation until the all of your prayers have traveled by smoke into the heavens.

As the fire dies out I will send a final prayer of thanksgiving and claim your good in YOUR name for YOU!!

[NOTE: if you do your own ceremony you can choose your own words of course, and you can also choose to simply tear up your list, pour water on it, stomp on it, bury it, anything you want to symbolically let go of the energy.  Conclude your self-styled ceremony with some words of release – "I release and let this go and know that it is done."]

5.  NOW WHAT??

If making the list is easy for you GREAT!

If you are having difficulty with it – please email me:

(Steph [at] InfiniteInnerPower.com) and I’ll help you get over the hang ups.

Over the next few days I will post some other helpful tips about releasing and also about setting your intentions to create a truly magnificent and powerful 2011 for you!

Helping you release the old is my gift to you!

You may also  book a session with me at my current PAY AS YOU CHOOSE pricing for the remainder of this year.  My pricing will be changing January 1st so this is a great opportunity for you to get a head start on those New Year’s intentions!

Once you choose the session you want HERE, you’ll receive an email with the link to book your appointment.  I’ll be giving VIP scheduling (within 24 hrs of receipt of payment whenever possible) this week to help you maximize your willingness to make powerful changes!

OK!  Let’s get those lists made and prepare to burn baby burn! Only YOU can make the choice to reclaim your Inner Power NOW!

Namaste!

The PC version of ‘TWAS THE NIGHT B4 XMAS’

December 24, 2010 by  
Filed under Friday Funnies

‘Twas the night before Christmas and Santa’s a wreck…
How to live in a world that’s politically correct?

His workers no longer would answer to “Elves”,
“Vertically Challenged” they were calling themselves.

And labor conditions at the north pole
Were alleged by the union to stifle the soul.

Four reindeer had vanished, without much propriety,
Released to the wilds by the Humane Society.

And equal employment had made it quite clear
That Santa had better not use just reindeer.

So Dancer and Donner, Comet and Cupid,
Were replaced with 4 pigs, and you know that looked stupid!?

The runners had been removed from his sleigh;
The ruts were termed dangerous by the E.P.A.

And people had started to call for the cops
When they heard sled noises on their roof-tops.

Second-hand smoke from his pipe had his workers quite frightened.
His fur trimmed red suit was called “Unenlightened.”

And to show you the strangeness of life’s ebbs and flows:
Rudolf was suing over unauthorized use of his nose
And had gone on Geraldo, in front of the nation,
Demanding millions in over-due compensation.

So, half of the reindeer were gone; and his wife,
Who suddenly said she’d enough of this life,
Joined a self-help group, packed, and left in a whiz,
Demanding from now on her title was Ms.

And as for the gifts, why, he’d ne’er had a notion
That making a choice could cause so much commotion.

Nothing of leather, nothing of fur,
Which meant nothing for him. And nothing for her.

Nothing that might be construed to pollute.
Nothing to aim. Nothing to shoot.
Nothing that clamored or made lots of noise.
Nothing for just girls. Or just for the boys.
Nothing that claimed to be gender specific.
Nothing that’s warlike or non-pacific.
No candy or sweets…they were bad for the tooth.
Nothing that seemed to embellish a truth.

And fairy tales, while not yet forbidden,
Were like Ken and Barbie, better off hidden.

For they raised the hackles of those psychological
Who claimed the only good gift was one ecological.

No baseball, no football…someone could get hurt;
Besides, playing sports exposed kids to dirt.

Dolls were said to be sexist, and should be passe;
And Nintendo would rot your entire brain away.

So Santa just stood there, disheveled, perplexed;
He just could not figure out what to do next.

He tried to be merry, tried to be gay,
But you’ve got to be careful with that word today.

His sack was quite empty, limp to the ground;
Nothing fully acceptable was to be found.

Something special was needed, a gift that he might
Give to all without angering the left or the right.

A gift that would satisfy, with no indecision,
Each group of people, every religion;
Every ethnicity, every hue,
Everyone, everywhere…even you.

So here is that gift, it’s price beyond worth…

“May you and your loved ones enjoy peace on earth.”


God bless you all, whoever your God may or may not be! :) LOL!

Love and blessings!

YOU ARE A POWER FOR PEACE!

December 23, 2010 by  
Filed under General, Practical Spirituality

Peace on Earth

Good Will To All!

There’s no need for a long elaborate post about today’s message.

But it IS a perfect opportunity for all of us to unite our hearts and minds and set the intention for peace on our planet and harmony for all!

When we collectively focus our energies on a common goal – it has a very powerful and profound effect! This week, on the Winter Solstice Full Moon, the planets are aligned in a configuration that has not happened for over 300 years!  That’s a whole lot of aligning! And a whole lot of power we can access!

So sometime this weekend, perhaps when you first wake up on Christmas morning,  send a little prayer of peace out to the world.  Feel the peace in your heart well up and spill over and send the waves out to the planet, to the animals, to the people, to the trees and the stars.

Lola and I wish you and your loved ones

Peace and Good Will

today and always!


God Bless You!

THE BLESSINGS IN DEATH AND TAXES

December 20, 2010 by  
Filed under Law of Attraction, Practical Spirituality

No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it. We must learn to see the world anew.”

– Albert Einstein

Einstein was a pretty smart guy as we all know, and while I may not be able to understand some of the mathematical equations he came up with, I do understand this quote and believe it to be absolutely true!

Though it may not be apparent at first, we create “problems” as learning opportunities.  No, not consciously perhaps – but our Higher Consciousness is always looking for ways to assist us in our development and expansion while we are here on the planet – that’s what we signed up for if you buy the theory that we chose to come down here into a physical existence.

So our Higher Consciousness co-creates the problem aka learning opportunity but then most often, our ego grabs hold of it like a hungry dog with a bone!  Next thing we know the problem is eating away at us and we’ve completely lost sight of the fact that it is a learning/growth opportunity!

The other thing we tend to lose sight of when we are stuck in a problem is that there is ALWAYS a solution.  I know you may be saying “but Steph – come on now – some problems are unresolvable – like death or taxes!”

And I agree – that on the PHYSICAL level, there ARE some problems that are not resolvable.  But the key words in that sentence are “on the PHYSICAL level.“  Because on a spiritual and emotional level, even death and taxes can be overcome but they do require, as Einstein stated, that “we must learn to see the world anew.

Simply re-languaging the word “problem” into “learning opportunity” already lifts it to a new level of consciousness doesn’t it?  Because in every problem, there IS a learning opportunity – a chance for us to see the situation through a different set of glasses – and yes – I suggest you choose the rose-colored ones!

There IS a blessing in death and in paying taxes if you choose to change your perspective.  Death can be seen as a new beginning, a new opportunity, a return to your Divine Source Energy. It is an opportunity for your Soul to have expanded by having a physical incarnation and it is also an opportunity for your Soul to return to be of service in other ways.

And there are blessings in paying taxes too! The Law of Circulation states that all things in the universe are always flowing in circulation at an ever expanding rate. What you give to one person, you will receive back from a different source, so you don’t have to give with the expectation of receiving back from the same person you give to.  Just know that what you give will always be returned to you multiplied from other sources. It works according to the law of cause and effect where the universe always mirrors back to you whatever you do. So one way or another, the energy of the money you pay in taxes will be returned to you!

Next time a “problem” comes your way – take a few deep breaths and then go find your rose-colored glasses!  Ask yourself – what learning opportunity is in this for me?  How can I see this issue differently?  What is the blessing in this situation?

And if you need a little help with that – well – that’s what I’m here for!  To help you change your perspective, find the blessings and move joyfully and intentionally forward.  I’ve purposefully set aside a few appointments so you can put yourself in the best possible position to begin the New Year!  Go ahead and  schedule an appointment now! Give yourself the gift of being that much ahead of the game when January 1st rolls around!

Rainbow Blessings!

P.S.  I am currently offering  a Pay-As-You-Choose (sliding scale) payment option, so NOW really IS the best time to schedule your appointment! I’m definitely making changes in my pricing and programs after the first of the year so if your budget is an issue to you, do book your session before the end of the year!

OUT OF DARKNESS INTO LIGHT

December 15, 2010 by  
Filed under Overcoming Fear, Practical Spirituality

We humans are complex beings, with many moving parts – both literally and figuratively.  In order to experience the maximum amount of joy and peace while we are here, it behooves us to coordinate all those moving parts so they are working harmoniously towards our intentions rather than going off willy-nilly in their own directions all the time.

The parts we are happy about move with relative ease and grace on their own, because they are fueled and coordinated by the love and appreciation we give them.  But the parts that we don’t like, or worse yet, the ones we fail to even acknowledge . . . well . . . they can become like poorly behaved children, constantly throwing tantrums to get our attention, being destructive (i.e. addictive behaviors) or causing issues with our relationships, money, and health.

It takes a brave soul to be willing to look beyond the vision in the mirror to see not just what is pleasing to us, but also that which seems too scary, too wounded, too beyond redemption.  But that brave soul will be richly rewarded for her courage because to the degree we are willing to see and accept all of our parts, is also the degree to which we can receive and accept love, light and joy into our lives.

Unfortunately, while we hide from and/or try to protect our so-called “dark” sides or “shadow” selves, we also unwittingly shield them from all the good stuff too.  Whatever we’ve stuffed in the closet, hidden under the bed, or buried underneath too much food, drink, sex or whatever, does not have the opportunity to receive the blessings that we feel when someone loves us, when we see the exquisite beauty of a sunset, or the sheer joy of our household pet welcoming us home even though we were only gone five minutes.

It also takes an awful lot of energy to hide from and/or protect those unwanted parts!  It becomes a 24/7 job!  There is no respite!  There is no coffee break!  There is no vacation!  Every minute of every day, of every week, of every month, of every year a part of us stands silent guard watching and waiting to be sure the shadow doesn’t get out or the victim within is not hurt one more time.  It is EXHAUSTING!

And perhaps the most damaging consequence of not accepting our dark sides, is that they never have the opportunity to become light – to “grow up” in effect.  We become co-dependent “enablers”, adjusting to the wounds rather than seeking out the source of the infection and curing it from the inside out.

These darker parts of us DO powerfully affect our intentions and manifestations as well.  Despite our best efforts to keep them from doing so, energetically speaking the force and power of these hidden selves still exist and often show themselves in thwarted attempts to achieve success in our business, or our love life, or our diet/health.  While we may not be consciously aware, we are actually acting out  ”push-me/pull-you” and often never able to bring into physical form that which we most desire because of our internal power struggles and mixed messages.

Today you can begin to change that by making a simple decision.

Today, you can choose to be brave enough to look in the mirror – that is look all the way THROUGH the mirror.  This time though, arm yourself with the love of a battalion of angels by your side, (and/or by whatever Universal Dream Team you choose to call on).

Today, call on your Infinite Inner Power which stands at the ready for you — so you can look just a little deeper and see one part of you that you’ve resisted seeing for oh soo long.

Look at him/her/it through the eyes of your all-loving Divine Spirit.  Your Divine Spirit sees only perfection, even when your human eyes see otherwise.  Your Divine Spirit has no judgment – it does not have a language of disapproval, dislike, bad or wrong.  Shining the light of your Divine Spirit on that “dark” part of you will reveal its true beauty – as an integral piece of the Divine YOU!

You ARE whole, complete and perfect

in the eyes of an adoring Universe!

Today, give yourself the gift of seeing and believing that . . .if only for an instant!

It will be sooo worth it!

God bless you for your courage.

Namaste.
