Happy December! Wow! It’s time for Christmas music, holiday lights, snowy landscapes, hot chocolate with Bailey’s, and cozy nights by the fireplace. Confession: I have been listening to Christmas music since before Thanksgiving. And I’ve already done some holiday crafts. But, now I can officially say: ‘Tis the Season! With the holidays coming up and the typical hustle and bustle, I try to stay connected and at peace. I love the holiday season way too much to sacrifice the joy for stress. Plus, December marks the last month of the year and I like to savor every last drop of each year before looking forward to the next one.
Although I am getting stronger spiritually, I still need reminders to stay mindful. I love being told I am CAPABLE of feeling what I want to feel. I love feeling SUPPORTED in my endeavors. This is why I’ve signed up for daily “Notes from the Universe” on Mike Dooley’s site The Universe Talks. His tagline is Thoughts Become Things, and I agree full-heartedly with the power of the mind. With our mind, we can control our physiological body. With our mind, we can create: stress or peace, fear or love. Just a simple thought can create these drastic shifts in our psyche. This is why I recommend you sign up for these little notes every day. Read on for my current favorite note from the Universe and some convincing you need to sign up ASAP…
I signed up for these notes back in February 2015 based on a recommendation from my lovely Aunt Sue. She’s a spiritual and religious force in my life, always inspiring me to delve deeper into the spiritual world. No matter how ‘spiritual’ or ‘connected’ we claim to be, everyone can use a little help. So, I decided to give it a shot. My first note went a little something like this:
|When you love who you are, Kristen, you become much more lovable.
Not that that’s why I love you.
The Universe preaching the need of self-love! How radically awesome. I was a true believer in these notes on Day One. Sometimes, they’re grounding. Sometimes, they’re lifting. They always seem to balance me out in the exact way I need it. At times, they’ve seemed to be sent by divine intervention (well, I mean, it is the Universe after all). For example, during a time when I was feeling far from abundant in funds, I received a reminder that money isn’t the answer to my problems, and I was able to dissociate from the attachment I created to money as a measure of success.
|Thinking that money will somehow make one happy, Kristen, isn’t thinking at all.
Hey, sorry, you know better. But you might not believe how many people think that just because they don’t have much of it now, its lack is at the root of their challenges, which is never the case.
Every morning, I now wake up to a Note from the Universe in my email inbox. Sometimes, these notes are just SPOT ON and f#ck!ng awesome. Whoops, sorry, I lost accurate and artfully spoken words to describe the awesomeness that is TUT. I’m talking skin-raising, full-body-goosebumps kind of awesome. Jump-out-of-bed-and-do-something awesome. Make-your-dreams-reality awesome. Superhero awesome. Take this one for example. I really need to print this one out and paste it everywhere because… well… it’s just so me.
|Laughter, new friends, and far away travel. Wildlife, unexplored jungles, and hidden lagoons. Adventure, ancient mysteries, and modern cities. Challenges, heroes, and passionate love.
You deserve it ALL, Kristen.
So do I.
Would you mind visualizing for us?
Yes, yes, yes! I do deserve it all.
And so do you. We all do.
I’m imagining a life of my dreams. I’m imagining all my passions having fiery sex with each other to birth a miracle baby where everything I love is combined. And then, it will grow and develop into other passions and dreams. It will evolve, as I will evolve. I will nurture this baby of my dreams with my trust in its path. I’m imagining all the people and places–the new friends and far away travel–that I’m not even aware of existing. I had a patient say to me the other day, “You don’t know what you don’t know.” And it’s so true. The more I learn, the more mysterious the world becomes. There is so much wilderness and unexplored depths. I can’t wait to adventure into it all.
Because I deserve to.
