10 Tips for a Fabulous Summer

Feel Connected, Wherever You Are

summer tips Transport your home office to the park, beach or lake for the day. What better place to brainstorm or get organized than out in nature, inspired by the natural beauty and order of things!

Make room for spontaneity. From May onwards, I have a picnic blanket in my trunk, hiking shoes, maps, and yoga gear all ready for spur of the moment fun. If you’ve never stretched out a map, closed your eyes and pointed…you have to try it for a fabulous day trip! It’s an amazing reminder of the fun we can create along the journey.

Try at least one thing that scares you, but secretly thrills you in a zest for life kind of way. WOW, will you feel good after, when you feel some mastery over your fear, and have been taking steps to live your life so fully!

Create a neighbourhood bucket list of all places you’d like to check out or revisit. In many trips abroad I was always surprised by how many locals hadn’t been to the most fabulous places in their own back yard, and made a note to explore the local treasures right under my own nose too. Each item you check off can bring more appreciation of where you are right now, and feeling more connected to your community.

Engage all your senses consciously for at least a few moments every day. Literally stop and smell the roses, the scent of rain on its way, your fresh laundry. Notice what visually catches your attention too, as that’s what will harmonize you. Recently I’ve been drawn to pink and orange — not usual colours for me, but they seem to be bringing healing waves of unconditional love and joy. I’ll take it!

We have a universal need for touch, protection, and connection. Self-help expert Laura Day invites us to check in on these themes day to day. What texture do you want to wrap yourself in or how do you want to touch or be touched? What step would make you feel more protected right now? How are you being urged to connect?

Reflect on memories of pleasure. Allow 1 or 2 pleasant memories to come forward, remembering everything you experienced moment to moment…taste, touch, sounds, scents, and visuals. Now try to bring some of those ideas into every day tasks, and watch yourself enjoy them more!

Meditate to reconnect with the real you. Beginner meditators learn relaxation techniques to let go of stress and and enjoy a pleasant escape from the pressures of life. What’s so amazing, is that as our journey progresses, we’re able to experience those sweet moments more and more often whether we’re in meditation or not. Instead of meditation being an ‘escape’, we actually experience what’s real — no longer disconnected and ruled by fear, but aligned with the peaceful wisdom of our soul and the innate freedom within.

Spread the love and good cheer! The next time someone asks you how you are, if you’re feeling just how sweet life is, truly share your enthusiasm (and theirs). Have you noticed that we can’t help but smile when we see others laughing and having fun? Throw your arms around the world, and let those giggles out!

“I create pleasure and the state of love in my life every day.” I love this affirmation from Laura Day! Can you feel the words come to life in your body? Try writing the affirmation you love on a sticky note so you see and repeat it often.

Here’s to a fabulous season! If you’re nearby, I’d love to see you at InnerVitality’s Summer Series in Toronto!

Blessed Be Your Wellness

This message from spirit also appears on our sister blog, SatyaSoul ~ your loving source for channeled messages and intuitive development tips.

do this even before reaching for your natural cures…

Blessed Be Your Wellness ~ InnerVitality1. When you are not feeling well, it is wise, fitting, and healing to follow your inner intuition and move, smooth, or shift anything you sense in your aura or the surface of your body with your hands. Your attention, your touch, and your awareness brings about a shift. Use your hands to help clear what is hanging about in your field. Great for daily self-care and most especially when you are down and out with a cold, illness or physical discomfort. Might we suggest you do this first before reaching into your medicine cabinet, even before your natural cures, as this activity will strengthen / purify / clarify / shield you from all else that follows. It is a way to instantly strengthen all energetic bodies ~ the connection of body, emotion, mind, and spirit that keep you whole, that is your wholeness, that is your expression of the human you. So, Dear Ones, that is one tip for you ~ a reminder for some and a poignant point for others.

2. The next tips is to do that which brings you passion. Yes, even in a weakened immune state, find a way to connect with a hobby, a treasured pet, or activity. This connects you to joy and creativity energy, to the spirit within ~ which, therefore, naturally aligns you to the spirit with’out’…the spirit in all living things, the spirit of all consciousness, the spirit of you. Many don’t feel up to or feel they have time for a creative hobby when they are not feeling their wellest, but may we remind you ~ this is a surefire way to bring you balance, back into your state of wholeness, which enables you then when well and rested to get back to daily routines, daily chores, and requirements.

And you see Loved Ones, had you not departed from your sense of wholeness, from your passionate expression of who you are ~ you would not have succumbed to un-ease at all. But we say this not for others, for you, to find fault within. We say this to encourage your greater harmony, your greater expression of truth and the love and light that you are.

So be well Dear Children, be well within, be well and be wise to the words and deeds of truth. Your healing and your optimal living and joy are always held with the ultimate focus, support and attention by the Lords, the Angels and All That Is.

It is some of the Lords of Neighbouring Planets that have come together today to speak of your healing, and it is I, Lord Arcturius, who speaketh now. I am holding the energy for this group channel at this time. We all wish your wellest selves. Blessed be ~ it is so. Go merrily and whole-heartedly on your way Children!

You are the Epicentre

This channeled article also appears on our sister blog site, SatyaSoul ~ your loving source for spirit messages and intuitive development tips!

You are the Epicentre @SatyaSoulBelieve us when we say your self-care and your physical body are to be your utmost priority in life. All else flows from this. Don’t you see? The other matters, your family and career ~ mean nothing without an optimal you at its centre. Many don’t believe this within completely yet. But we cannot stress this enough. Put yourself first. Trust your body. Listen when it says it needs to stretch, to move, and the foods that suit it and fuel it for your highest function and good.

how charged is your internal battery?

You are like the epicentre. And everything you create in your life, everything you seek, even your inner clarity ~ is more focused, abundant and dynamic with a whole you at the centre. Every situation you find yourself in, even your friends, family and other relationships around you…are part of the web that you spin from your inner resources. What kind of web are you creating? How charged is your internal battery? Recharge it, and your entire web and how you relate to it is affected. Stay charged, continuously maintain your vitality, and so much more than you currently realize is possible.

step into your power, embrace all that nourishes you…

Self care has been a roadblock for many throughout their life. Isn’t it time to make a plan…a commitment to yourself and finally follow through? You see many more joys and discoveries await!

But naturally, you must be ready and able to embrace these new opportunities. What doors will open when you truly take care of yourself and put yourself first? That is after all, your duty to yourself. Think of the power you have when you put yourself directly in the epicentre, the centre of the web, instead of haphazardly directing your life from the sidelines. Step into your power. It is time. Embrace all that nourishes you. Live life.

Self Nurturing Concepts

Self Nurturing Concepts ~ InnerVitalityInnerVitality was a proud sponsor of Hay House’s I CAN DO IT Toronto 2009 conference. Among many great talks, author and life coach Cheryl Richardson‘s lecture on the Art of Extreme Self Care was fantastic! We’re pleased to share some of the highlights below:

1. Learn to disappoint others with love and grace. If you can set healthy boundaries with those closest to you, you can do so with anyone!
2. Stop doing things out of guilt or obligation ~ that is not a relationship, it is an arrangement.
3. A good girl [or boy] role can rob you of your life.
4. Accept that everyone won’t like you.
5. Surround yourself only with people who uplift you ~ this includes clients and family.
6. Don’t beat yourself up if you said ‘yes’ when you wanted to say ‘no’. On the plus side, how you felt is an important lesson you can incorporate into future actions.
7. Create a nurturing and beautiful environment in your home and work. Eliminate clutter.
8. Don’t rush ~ give yourself time between commitments.
9. If it doesn’t feel good, don’t do it.
10. When we are authentic in our life, we make a significant contribution to the world!

P.S. Hope to see you at the 2011 I Can Do It! Toronto conference, happening in May!

You Already Know the Answer

simple & effective techniques….

You Already Know the Answer ~ InnerVitalityThe following 3 exercises are helpful when deciding on a course of action or several opportunities, and also helpful in discovering other options available. They put you in touch with your inner knowing that always steers you on a path in your highest good. First put yourself in a meditative state (you may wish to do this by lighting a candle, listening to relaxing music, opening your chakras if this is familiar to you, and focusing on your breath).

1. Street Light Meditation
This exercise is beneficial for those who are clairvoyant (intuitively see in images) and it can give very clear answers. Think of the situation you wish to intuitively explore. Now imagine and see yourself taking a particular course of action. Ask to have a traffic light appear before you, to symbolically represent this course of action. Is it red, amber or green? Trust what your lights mean to you…many people will find that a red light is cautionary and green means go! You may see flashing green that eventually turns to amber…in that case it may be time to act on your opportunity while it is available or to slow down (or be more cautionary) nearer the end of the situation. Again, trust what your own visuals mean to you. Repeat this for any other scenarios you’d like to weigh.

2. Box Meditation
An excellent exercise for those who feel things intuitively in their body, and those who see in images. Imagine the first option and see yourself inside a box or room with it. Explore this scene and any feelings you experience in your body. How do you feel inside this room? What do you see or hear? Is there a ceiling? Are the walls closing in? Or do you feel expansive and joyful? Repeat this exercise if you are considering various options. Does the choice (or which choice) feel(s) right for you?

3. Path Meditation
Imagine one option. See yourself on this path. Engage all your senses. Notice the landscape, it’s richness or lack, the colours, sounds, and temperature. Notice the vegetation and any movement or insects/animals/people that appear. Are there any messages for you? How do you feel walking on this path…at the start and later on? Does this path lead to more opportunities? How much effort or what action is required? Repeat this process for another option you are considering. Ask now for another pathway to be shown to you…something you have not considered yet. How does this option feel, look, and sound? Is there a path in your highest good? Trust your instincts. You know the answer within.
