Universe’s Plan. We can make all the plans we want, but when the Universe has different plans our stuff gets put on hold or thrown out the window. That’s when it’s best to surrender, accepts and let it go. The Universe/God always knows best for our Highest Soul’s purpose. It’s always my plan that these newsletters I send out are monthly. However, I don’t always get the time I want to do them. And sometimes the Universe intervenes making it impossible. A lesson for me to just go with the waves, enjoy the ride and surrender to what is. I’m on the Universe’s time table after all. At least I try to be! 🙂
A great way to surrender is to practice a stillness meditation. You can do this either walking in nature or simply being peacefully still at home. Close your eyes. Don’t talk. Just listen. Pause long enough for 1-3 three slow deep breaths (or more). Then feel. It’s not a thinking thing. It’s a feeling thing. What do you see? What do you hear? You may hear cars in the distance. Lets the sounds of cars fade away. You might even hear the sound of an airplane. Let the sounds of the airplane go. What do you hear? You may hear birds singing or frogs; even leaves blowing in the wind. Really listen. Allow the surface noises to just fade away. Then underneath ALL of that…underneath all your thoughts…underneath all these things…even the beautiful sounds of nature…underneath it all…there is stillness. There is peace. You can access this anytime, anywhere.

Yoga Pose of the Month
Sanskrit: Salamba Bhujangasana

Sphinx is a gentle back bend pose that is a great modified pose and lead-in to Cobra or Updog. You may commonly use this pose during the traditional Sun Salutation Sequence. This is a great lead in to deeper back bends, allowing your students to come into a back bend practice gently.
- Stretches and lengthens the spine
- Stretches the chest, lungs, shoulders and abdomen
- Firms the buttocks
- Stimulates abdominal organs
- Helps relieves stress
- Calms the mind
- Traditional texts say that Bhujangasana increases body heat, destroys disease and awakens Kundalini
Directions on how to come into the pose:
Lie prone on your belly with legs stretched out behind you. Place your hands, palms facing down on the floor. Elbows will be under your shoulders. To be sure your arms are shoulder width apart, cross your forearms and you should be able to touch opposite elbows. Shoulders are away from the ears.
While in this pose have the intention of drawing your legs towards one another. Root down through the tops of your feet, ensuring that your ankles don’t roll out to the sides. Push down through your tailbone. Keep your legs firm. Keep the back of your neck long; do not crank your head back. Imagine the orange on the back or your neck so that you aren’t crunching the neck too much. There should be space to elongate and not crush the “orange”. Engage through your belly to support your lower back.
When not to do this pose or to modify/Contraindications:
You may need avoid or modify this pose if you have back injury, headache or are pregnant.

I Believe In Angels
I believe in Angels. Wherever I go, they are there. Even when I’m not paying attention to that truth. Whenever I ask for their assistance, they are there. They do what they are meant to do while allowing for our freedom.
They do their best to abide by our free will. We (usually) must ask for their assistance. And often they are simply there giving love and guidance, while allowing us to choose to receive it.
The magic, healing and upliftment I receive from them is so immediate, constant and freely given. It is their purpose for being to give us love, guidance and assistance whenever we ask and even when we don’t at times (like when we are not meant to go through an accident they may divert our path in some miraculous way).
They are miraculous. Our gift from God/Universe. They show us they are there in common ways: like donning our path with feathers, or giving us abundance synchronicities with dimes coming out of nowhere, the list goes on.
Often I’ll ask for a smoother, safer path while driving my car with extra protection. Truthfully, EVERY TIME I get in my car I am asking for Divine protection from the Angels and God. Every time.
And if my impatience gets the better of me (we all have our human imperfections, 🙂 lol), I will ask to make the traffic flow smoothy, and at a stop sign I sometimes ask to get me out onto the next street quickly but safely. Then a knowing and a calm settles in. I breathe deeply and let it go. The letting it go is truly the amazing part. Then suddenly I’m traveling easily again. Often people will ask for better parking spots in garages. These are little things they can and DO want to help us with. They want to make our lives easier in the small ways and the big ways.
They know all things matter, the big and the small, and they know all people matter too. It doesn’t matter what it is or who you are, they want to assist you and help in any way they can (that is allowed). Ask! Because you just never know. Believe you are worthy. Then allow the help to come how it will. Surrender and receive.
Often we face life’s challenges and it’s hard when we’re in the thick of it. So ask for an answer from the Universe/Angels. Let go of the outcome and be ready to receive an answer…whatever it is. Then ask for those things to be taken care of so that you are living happy, thriving and enjoying the work you do. You may receive action steps to take or you may receive a ‘knowing’ that there is nothing to do but surrender and be happy where you are. Whatever it is, is perfect for your individual situation.
Ask for the highest and best good of all. Then take a deep breath and let it all go. May the Angels always light your path.
May you always know the peace that dwells within,

Hi. I keep seeing the name Jacob a lot. What does it mean? Jacob is someone that I’m in love with. But I haven’t heard from him in two months.
Thank you for your email. 🙂 Your email didn’t give me much information to go on so I’m responding to what you’ve said as best I can.
When you are in love with someone that is all you can think about. And what we think about is what we feel and what we feel become energy. That energy goes out to the Universe. This energy is what creates your reality. By Law of Attraction, what you focus on expands and you receive that energy back. The Law of Attraction article I wrote can be found here to learn more about this Law of the Universe.
So you may or may not be able to be with this Jacob right now or ever. It depends on what is meant to be. However, synchronicities will occur when you focus on something. Please read this more in-depth article I wrote regarding Synchronicites as well.
So this name may be popping up simply because you are focusing on it and you are wishing him to be with you. On the flip side, it may be popping up as a message from the Universe. A message to either let him go or to be patient and see where this leads in its own good time.
What else occurring WITH the name or when the name pops up? What are you doing or thinking WHEN the name comes up? Is there a song playing on the radio or is someone telling a story nearby with a message for you? Pay attention to your thoughts, your feelings and what is happening around you. It matters to take it all in, in the present moment.
Sometimes what we wish may not be meant to be at the time or at all, but something better does come when we let it go. And other times it’s just a matter of letting it go and seeing if it comes back.
Most importantly, you must live your life. Follow your dreams and passions and if it’s meant to be it will happen. Life happens either way. Enjoy the mystery and the ride. 🙂
I wish you peace and happiness.
It is my desire and intention always that you take away from my newsletter feelings of empowerment, aliveness, divine connection and peace. May You Always Know the Peace that Dwells Within.
