To let go of old beliefs sounds simple but in everyday usage , not so much. Yet this is the first step I list in creating the life you desire in my book Journey to Now . It is an absolute must to step out of your box labeled reality. Here’s why.

What we believe is the truth about our lives flows through our very being, every cell, every neuron, every message passed through our body’s biological system. What we believe is the truth  is fueled in emotion and emits through the electromagnetic field of our heart, to be felt by ourself, and others. What we believe is the truth becomes imbedded within our brain, so much so that we always go back to it, which reinforces it even more.

And, why shouldn’t we go back to it? Our beliefs come from our past experiences, what we’ve lived and witnessed. They also come from what we have been taught by family, friends, teachers, society.We become so accustomed to how we believe things to be, that we tell the story of it every day. Why we have no money, why we don’t feel good, why we are a victim, why we can’t get ahead. We repeatedly put these stories out into the Universe vocally, within huge fields of emotion and believed as real. No matter who may disagree, no matter a “good” day or “change of luck”. No matter what present or future event may occur to prove your reality incorrect, the old pattern of belief from the past takes precedence. Because it is ingrained.

Sound hopeless? Not so! As I mentioned previously, step out of the box. Begin to explore new realities, new possibilities. Research, read, google new ideas on the internet, be it about health, nutrition, making money, creating a home business. From there delve into new sciences, spirituality, philosophy, energy medicine. I began my new reality looking into Reiki, past life regression, shamanism, sound healing, metaphysics to name a few. Attend workshops, meetup groups, online seminars, watch you tubes. When something resonates with you, learn about it and apply it, daily. It is said that it takes about 21 days of repetition before a new practice or idea becomes a new habit.

These new habits can then replace an old ones. This new truth then incorporates into your very biological being, neurologically within the brain and emotionally with feeling through the heart.They become your new story powered by the strength of those two organs’ electromagnetic fields that you vocalize throughout the cosmos. And thusly, your new reality is born. You can get a first hand illustration of this powerful process through reading my book  Journey to Now found on Amazon or my website serenityquestaz.com.

Those that know me understand that I very much believe in Laws of Attraction within the Universe. I work with these principles daily to create that which I desire. I have even written my first book called Journey to Now, about just how I changed my life using these, and provide a basic guideline for those who may wish to create change within their own lives. Notice I said “basic” guideline.

The steps are for those who are trying this for the first time and have no idea how to get started. Or for those who are still new at applying the principles and need reminders, refreshers, or tweeks. However, basic changes will  definitely arise from applying at least a few.

For those that have been at this a bit longer, you may have noticed some subtleties that not only affect your outcome, but also the time it takes to manifest the changes. As the title suggests, working with a partner can have positive and negative outcomes.

When both people are truly aligned to the goal of the desire, feel positive about it, are good with how it will change their life, and what that change encompasses, the doubled emotion, visualization, and positive belief can indeed create tremendous outcomes.

However, if only one person has a deep desire or vision for that new outcome, and the other has doubts of any sort, for any reason, the belief at a subconscious level just isn’t there, then the whole vision can be thwarted. Their disbelief or uncertainty can hinder the other’s desired outcome.

When two people are deeply connected, (as soul mates, or even more-soul matches) there similar and coordinating frequencies work for each other. ( It’s kind of like when two still beating hearts are placed next to each other in a lab, they begin to beat in sync. That’s as scientific as you are going to get from me.)

While you can research scientific explanations, physics, electromagnetic fields, (heck look up Greg Braden’s work); my observations on how this works are from personal experience. Let me give you one example.

A few years back, my husband and I fell in love with a large, beautiful house we found on the internet. Together we visualized our whole family living in it. We daydreamed about walking through the rooms, sitting at the pool, and sharing the space with friends as well. We worked with this daily. Yet we also knew the reality of the high rent, but did not let that get in the way of what we wanted and felt. And we allowed for outside possibilities to help us achieve our goal of living in the house. Well guess what, the owners met us, loved us, and lowered the price just to have us in that house!

During those two years, I got my book completed, but Kevin had an hour added to his work day in driving…and he drives as part of his job as tour guide. Tours were lessened as well. Expenses for utilities were also higher than we anticipated, and we were not in Sedona. When the owners let us know they were selling, there were no homes readily available back in Sedona. Kevin did not want to spend alot of money, nor time in travel. So as of this moment we are in what I like to call our weigh station home. Kevin loves it. While we have wonderful mountain views, it’s old, tiny, not at all attractive. But it’s where Kevin’s needs, wants, fears and unsurity put us. And of course, I fell into similar emotion.

We have not been in sync with the idea for our next home. I have accepted this place as a cute, loving refuge for now, and thank it as such, but am dreaming of our next big, beautiful abode. My partner’s energy indeed blocked what I have been putting out there. Recently he has come around with a renewed boost in his manifestation beliefs. With that has come extra funds, opportunities and possibilities. All of that plus the conscious manifesting that we can do so well, will soon fuel our united desire for our new home.

So for those who have a partner with whom they vibrate at similar frequencies …beware. Assess  what you each really want and believe, and readjust as necessary. Together you can be very powerful.

I am excited for the possibilities for all of us. While I have addressed only one manifesting  glitch, there are a few more. Not to worry, my next book will cover those!

Now that we are well into 2016, take stock as to where you are on your path. Is it the path you wish to be on? Is it still last year’s path? Is it the path family and friends expect you be on? Is it leading you to where you want to go? If you answered no, yes, yes,and no, you may not be headed in the right direction. The direction of what you truly desire that is.

Book: Journey To Now

If you are at that crossroads where you wish to change your life, in some way, you will need to take a different path. Your new path should be one of research, learning new things, opening up to new realities, applying new philosophies, and stepping-out-of-the-box.

It should be all about connecting to your inner guidance system, finding joy, and positivity. Following your bliss and applying laws of attraction while doing so. Above all, begin telling a new life story as you wish it to be. (Not as it was.)

In my book, “Journey to Now”,  I provide a good thirty years of my own life path as an example of how I did indeed change my life incorporating the above principles and much more. Choose which of the 12 steps I offer that resonate with you.

Don’t presume I am saying that whatever years behind you were in vain. On the contrary! Every milestone, event, joy, sorrow, person, situation, decision, were all means to the soul lessons you are here to learn. If it weren’t for these, you would not have traveled the path you did, which in turn created the wise and learn-ed being that you now are.

We all have journeyed to now for each of our specific soul purposes. We wouldn’t be who we are had we not. No time was wasted.

You are in the exact spot you should be in right now. So gather that knowledge, and wisdom, note the synchronicities along the way for they are messages, and set out on your new path today.  Your journey to the future, your desired future, is about to begin!

I know you’ve heard this time and again: Choose doing what you love for a career. Your life will be happier. Probably. But not always possible. I knew I wanted to be a Teacher from the time I was 6. Set all my stuffed animals up across the bed, as my students, and taught from a piece of construction paper taped to my closet (for the black board). Loved teaching…did it for three decades. But the loving it stopped somewhere in the midst of the second. Still, I cared about the kids and was a perfectionist, so I kept going and was good at it.

Often, as we grow older, experience life, learn new things, our “loves” change. These changes can occur in career, relationships, environment, spiritual beliefs, political views. The list goes on and on. It is only natural; change happens.

Some,do not have great options, and  choices are made due to economics,family problems, necessity. Whatever the case, whatever the changes, it is important to find what you love, find what gives you joy, and DO IT. It may not be a full time career.It may be a hobby. Something you can fit in once a week, once a month. Fit it in! Let it feed your soul. Those inevitable changes may provide more options for you down the road. When you live with joy, you are connected to source. When you are connected to source, miracles happen. When miracles happen you get to create the life you want. And…when you chose the life you want, you will be happier. Funny how it all works!

March is Heart health month. While exercise and diet are key to keeping healthy, Reiki can also play a role. Negative emotions work on energy levels of our bodies, often creating “dis-ease”.  A “sad” heart is not going to continue to be a healthy heart. When we are sad, discontent, angry, jealous, …we are not connected to our true nature. We are not connected to source, God, love, whatever your reference. We block these connections off.

I believe Reiki can work to undo these blockages, keep life force moving through us. We are all a part of  this energetic source. Often, during a reiki session, recipients will burst into tears as emotions flow through. It’s all about heart. It’s all about love.

What is Reiki?

What is Reiki? I am asked this alot, even though I presume everyone has heard of it. That is how commonplace it has become to me. Utilizing Reiki energy is a way of life for me. I Reiki myself every day. I send Reiki to family and friends, even those I do not know, for healing. The healing doesn’t have to be physical. It can be on any level including psychological, emotional, situational.

It’s traditional explanation has been: Reiki is an ancient Tibetan form of hands-on-healing that originated between 2,500-3,000 years ago. It was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, a monk from Kyoto, Japan. Dr. Usui developed the modern system and in the 1920s he passed this information on to Dr. Hayashi, who in turn trained a woman by the name of Hawayo Takata. It was Madam Takata who brought Reiki to the United States in the 1940s.

Reiki works on “ki” or “chi” energy that naturally flows through the body channels and Chakkra system. (Similar to acupuncture meridians.) It reinforces that flow in “blocked areas”. It addresses the whole person and works with the bodies own abilitiy to heal.

I personally have witnessed Reiki’s gentle and subtle power in myself , my students and clients. Over the past 10-15 years many a research study has been conducted on Reiki’s effects. I was actually part of one myself. Reiki is available as an alternative healing option in many a hospital around the country.

If you are on a quest for a  healthier life, stress reduction, or balance in general, definately check Reiki out. I am available here in Tucson or by phone. You can find me at www.serenityquestaz.com. It may just change your life….
