Happy November!

Journaling provides a vehicle for you to let your subconscious mind flow. Just pick up your journal and begin to write without judgment or editing. It is a super way to start the day, even if you only write for three minutes. Sometimes though, the words may not flow, and that is where journal prompts enter. If someday you find yourself stuck, use one of these prompts.

How to Connect with Your Inner Goddess

By: Gloria Marie

HOW TO CONNECT WITH YOUR INNER GODDESS
Start your journey to your full potential. This video describes two techniques to connect with your inner goddess, your inner warrior. The definition of a goddess is “a woman who is adored.” We are spiritual beings in a physical body with untapped wisdom. When you connect to this spiritual place, you will empower yourself. Doing one of these techniques for just a few minutes a day will bring out the Super Woman that you are. You will shift internally and begin to trust and know your inner goddess.

Green Light to Manifest

By: Gloria Marie

gloria pierson, green light to manifest, remove manifesting blocks

Our thoughts manifest into physical form, that is the basic principle of the Law of Attraction. If any doubt appears, it needs to be released immediately. I can assure you that doubt will arise. We have many, many years of pessimistic thinking, and the change usually does not happen overnight. These steps will give you a green light to manifest

Besides, we tend to put our timeframes and our ideas of how our desires will appear, instead of letting that up to the Universe. If you had to pick your earth-bound ideas or the ways of Infinite Intelligence, which would prefer? This blog will identify five different manifesting blocks and how you can get through them. It is up to you!

1. Least Resistance – Our minds and bodies take the path of least resistance. We tend to take the easy way out. But, when you are working on your desires, you must release years of negative thinking. Infinite Intelligence does not know good or bad and will respond equally to all. So, if your thoughts are of greed, fear, and jealousy, that is what you will bring into your life. You need to take responsibility for your thoughts and break those bad habits. When you bake a cake, you follow the recipe and put all the right ingredients in the batter. The result is a delicious cake. It is a similarity with our thoughts. Whatever we put in “the batter” will manifest on the physical plane. Break the habit by writing down affirmations and switch those thoughts the minute they appear. If one statement or method is not working, try a different process.

“I know I am receiving.”

2. Symbols – We keep looking at the physical world and our five senses for signs and become frustrated when our desires have not materialized. Learn to rely on your inner knowing, go beyond your five senses. Begin to look for symbols and signs from the Universe. They can come in the form of butterflies, birds, feathers, cloud formations, animals, coins, or number sequences (111, 333, 444). If your intuition is speaking to you, follow the advice. Your Soul will guide you, ask for guidance.

3. Intention to Manifest – Each day be open to the possibilities. Head into the day with optimism for what the Universe may bring your way. I mentioned looking beyond the five senses and look for symbols and signs. Before you start your day, ask for a symbol or sign. You will receive them. If you do not see them at first, continue the process. When you receive the signs, write them down with an explanation of what it meant to you. This process will help you believe that your desires have been heard and will come into fruition.

4. Darkest Before the Dawn. – You have probably heard this before, but it is true. Our negative thoughts in our mind are like weeds in the garden. We pull the weeds from our gardens, but sometimes there are those weeks that are hard to remove. It is the same with our thoughts. The toughest are going to hold out and give us some disruption right at the end. It may appear as if everything is going wrong when you are doing everything right. This is good news; the Universe is clearing out and preparing you for your desires to manifest. Stay strong.

5. Be Aware of the Small Steps – Your desires may come into your life in small steps. If you want abundance, it may initially come in the form of a coupon, someone treating you to lunch, or a discount on that shirt you love. If you want help with your career, a mentor could suddenly enter your life. Be grateful for every small manifestation. Gratitude helps keep our vibrations high. Feel joy for what you currently have and write down all the little steps and small miracles that will occur.

Happy August!

August is starting with a shift in energy. July 31, Mercury went direct. Any problems with communication, contracts, and technology will ease over the next week. In August there are three Super Full Moons. The first one is on August 1. New beginnings will increase now. This month is a perfect time to set those intentions, use affirmations, and act. Jupiter, the planet of good luck, goes direct on August 11. This will help magnify the energy.

Acceptance of the Present Moment

By: Gloria Marie

gloria pierson, gloria marie pierson, acceptance of the present moment

Acceptance of the present moment is a state of consciousness. Acceptance is easy if everything is going exactly as you like it and want it. Your ego is so happy when everything is going great. But, life is not always exactly as we want it. You may have problems in a relationship. You may be in a job that you dislike. You may have a health challenge, or you may be struggling to pay your monthly bills.

By accepting the present moment, you are in a state of peace, and that peaceful energy flows through you. The situation you are in may not be perfect, but, do not fight against the moment. By acceptance, I do not mean that you want and will prepare for something better to manifest. However, resistance, anger or negativity will stop the energy to flow and will hinder your manifestation of something better.

By accepting the present moment, you are in a state of grace and that peaceful energy flows through you.

If you plant a seed in the ground for a flower to grow, you patiently wait until it sprouts out of the earth. You do not pull the seeds out if the flower fails to sprout in a day or two. You patiently wait with confidence for the flower to bloom. You have faith in those seeds you planted.

It is the same with happiness even if the present moment is not perfect. Happiness is an interior quality within Divine Order. It is knowing and trusting that in the long run the Divine will win and good will come. Just like the seeds, you planted will produce a flower.

Trust that in the long run the Divine will win and good will come.

Surrender to the present moment no matter how much you dislike it. Let the peaceful energy flow through you. Take responsibility for your life and your actions. Take steps to change what you dislike about your life and have faith that you can change it. Every moment is temporary. Be active, not passive in every precious moment. Give every moment your full and present attention. Only you control your consciousness and your thoughts.

Sometimes it is hard. Earlier this year, I had big plans to go on vacation out west. I loved the west and was looking forward to the trip. But, the week before my trip, I fell in my bedroom, broke several bones in my foot and needed surgery. So much for the trip. This is not what I wanted or planned. But, rather than become negative and resist the moment, I accepted it. I wanted peaceful energy to flow through me and help with my healing. I believed in Divine order and knew, in the long run, more good, and happiness would come into my life.

Acting in a state of peace will raise your consciousness and your energy. With a heightened awareness, you are in a mental state to receive gifts. Trust the integrity of the Universe.
Flow with the river of life, not against the current.

Delicious Vegan Recipes

By: Gloria Marie

chloe coscarelli, chloe flavor, gloria pierson, gloria marie pierson, vegan recipes

Fresh, vibrant and delicious vegan recipes. “Chloe Flavor” is a must-have cookbook, even if you are not vegan. This cookbook will prove to you that plant-based recipes do not have to be boring. The recipes combine healthy ingredients, unusual combinations and are simple to prepare.

The introduction, “The Vegan Kitchen,” is a wealth of knowledge about ingredients and tips for success in cooking. For example, author Chole Coscarelli explains a technique using nuts as a base for sauces, soups, and deserts, so, they remain dairy free. The method involves soaking the nuts in boiling water for ten minutes before blending them. It worked like a charm.

The chapters range from Breakfast and Brunch, Soups and Salads, Sandwiches, Pasta, Plated Dishes, Smoothies and of course, Deserts! The recipes are easy to follow and do not require hard to find ingredients. Beautiful photographs accompany most of the recipes.

Last night, I invited my family for dinner and made the Brussels Sprouts Tacos and Cauliflower Al Pastor Tacos. At first, my family seemed skeptical about the combinations. After we finished eating, we all agreed, that it was one of the best dinners we have eaten. The freshness of the ingredients and the combination of the tastes were incredible and besides that good for our bodies.

The Brussel Sprout Tacos were made with shredded Brussel sprouts that were charred and served with corn seasoned with lime juice and jalapeno and a chimichurri sauce. The Cauliflower al Pastor Tacos were made with spicy roasted cauliflower and pineapple with a cashew queso sauce. On the side, as suggested, I served guacamole, lime wedges, fresh cilantro and pickled red onions.

Cannot wait to try many more of the recipes. Whether you are vegan or want to incorporate more plant-based recipes into your diet, this cookbook will provide you the path. The recipes are delicious and will add a flavorful variety to your weekly meals.

How to Direct Your Thoughts

By: Gloria Marie

Featured Video Play Icon

The high school shooting in Parkland was heartbreaking for many people. The high school is located about five miles from my home. Though all the horrible shootings make me sad, this one, that was in my backyard traumatized me the most. The streets and restaurants in Parkland are eerily empty. The gym I go to in Parkland likewise has been empty all week. As I am on the treadmill, watching the television, it is surreal to see the candlelight vigil that was held just a few blocks away. While at the gym, I wondered how many of the members were personally affected by this tragedy. How many parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, or neighbors are in mourning? Their lives never to be the same.

This week, it was hard for me to focus and hard to stay positive. I felt my energy low and negative. It was a struggle this week to remain in any routine. Of course, I prayed, light candles and meditated and that is what provided relief. From all my work, I know that by raising my energy and vibration, it will help others. I wish I could bring back all seventeen that died or wish I could take the pain away from the families, but, I cannot. What I can do is keep my thread to God alive.

This video was recorded before the shooting, but, the tool described will help you deal with tragedy. It will help you stay focused in the present moment. The goal is to direct your thoughts instead of just “thinking.” When our thoughts wonder they usually go to past regrets or worries about the future. Let’s all try to stay present and send healing love, prayers and light to the Parkland community.

When we are mindful in the present moment, we can think more clearly, and maybe we can decide, what can we do to prevent further tragedies?
