Eating, Playing, Being and Orgasms

when-harry-met-sally-meg-ryan-faking-orgasm-1989-movie-still-03

Lately, orgasms have been a focal point in my writing. Let me preface it with, I can only speak from my experience as a woman.

It’s not the sexual act of having an orgasm as to what I’m clearly addressing today. How about the value of an orgasm as it relates to “being present,” and “having the life we want.”

If we’re fully present and engaged in an activity; eating, playing, working, having sex or even just being, etc. we have a different experience of ourselves and the world.

BEING IN THE PRESENT MOMENT IS KEY TO FULFILLING SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS.

I use the word authenticity when describing living life on our terms and the ability to have an earth-shaking orgasm. Ya Ya!

Authenticity is who we truly are, beneath all the bullshit we tell ourselves we are or should be. It’s the truth; it’s the voice we often ignore, because it means we have to change what we’re doing, how we spend our time and perhaps, who we spend our time with too.

As an example, I’ve a client who is afraid to let go of her marriage. It is dead and over, they live in the same house, but there is no desire to work on things or come together, on either part. She has ignored her inner voice for years, telling her to move on. She lived with excuses; other people and their “possible,” opinions seemed to matter more than her happiness. She’s still waiting for someone else to come and rescue her, or hoping her estranged husband will find someone else, or that some HUGE sign will show up, telling her now is the right time to go. None of this has happened and will more than likely not happen, she is being pushed to stand for her own life.

She has ignored that voice, her authentic truth….and her chance, to so far, live an amazing existence….and she’s missing out on amazing orgasms too!!!

Think I’m kidding?

How can you have an amazing climax, when only part of you is present to do it? You can have an orgasm, but to have that fantastic out of this world experience…it’s equal parts mind, body and soul.

If you’re missing one, your life and your orgasms are lacking.

How many of us do this in different parts of our lives? And how many of us can truly let go of who we are not and be at our most open, vulnerable and raw state to experience life or sex?

To have what we want and create the life we deeply desire, it requires openness to ourselves first.

We must be connected to the TRUTH of what we want, not all the excuses that hold us back. When we have that unity in our mind, body and soul, it’s our most creative state to match to the unseen and create our reality.

We can also have a damn good orgasm.

I know when I’m in the state of building up to an orgasm, all of the molecules in my body are engaged, as is my spirit and my mind. It is a super intense focus!! Now, imagine creating our lives with that love, sensuality, joy and fun!!  And imagine the outcome being a climax, except this one doesn’t end.

When I am doing what I love and being true to myself, I wake up giddy in the morning!!

I practice self-care, my life is more in balance and it’s pretty orgasmic! When I’m working at something, which drains me, because I am afraid to lose the money or I’m in the company of people only because I am afraid to be alone…..I am disconnected. I am in fear. And sex…..um yeah….

Fear stands in the way of orgasms.

If we want to live a FULFILLING life, whether we’re just hanging out, spending time alone, working, exercising, eating, etc….we must be fully present. To be fully present requires us to be connected with all parts of ourselves. When we’re in fear this does not happen, we are only operating with a part of ourselves and denying the rest of us liberation.

Fear keeps us limited. So, shuck the fear, get in the flow. There’s a whole other way to live this life starting with BE HERE, NOW.

If orgasms are far and few between or life feels like a flat line, please contact me, I can help!

An intention came true for Victoria!

As told by Victoria…

The Crystal Trunk Show at my place of business, Que Linda Boutique…was a special event from our crystal vendor to our customers. The crystals offered were everything from jewelry to large pieces for the home.

It was a large selection of items for our customers to pick and  choose from, as if they were shopping directly through the crystal warehouse…but instead, the warehouse came to them.

The day started with my mindset of JOY.

With ease I got ready, with ease I  breathed through the morning thoughts of what today would bring.  JOY.  

I had just put on my dress that was comfortable to wear and embraced with the feeling making me Goddess strong.

As I was headed out the door; I gave my beau, Michael a kiss with my eyes, then with my lips and hugged him, while continuing to feel Goddess strong.

I went about opening the boutique and set the daily tone~burning incense, playing a wonderful soul soothing CD, turning on the water fountains, and lighting up the crystal  lamps.

I walked to the card reading room I recently set up toward the back of my boutique.

I looked into the mirror in this room and summonsed God, Buddha, Oracles, Angels, Ancestors, Universe and all light  powers that be…

This day and every day forth: Wealth of LIFE…wealth of Love,  wealth of Joy, wealth of Health, wealth of peace and grace, wealth of Soul  Workers, wealth of PROSPERITY for the boutique, the studio, QL2 & all who work &  provide service.

I looked directly into the mirror and declared a specific dollar figure for the sales of the day for the trunk show.  It was a figure I stretched  further than I felt comfortable, but now know this to be part of my journey…going beyond that which I already know exists.

I continued on with my day.  

I received a phone call from a vendor praising us for who and what we are in our work. He declared, “Victoria…it is your time.  No matter the economic situation, you have done your work. You have provided for those in your community to still love and laugh and be provided a safe place to nourish. It is your time to be successful.  It is YOUR TURN.  Your turn to be  successful and to be rich.”
WOW!
I had only spoken to this vendor, Joel, briefly in the past, when I asked to be a retailer of his A-mazing Yoga inspired wear.
I believe in his intention and love the QUALITY he provides in his product…I believe in his “service.”  I was feeling wealth of validation.
Thank you Universe for Joel’s message today.
The next call I received was the crystal vendor.   She had called to ask if it was raining yet in our area, if so she would come earlier to ensure setting up on time. My reply to her, “Yes it is raining, and as they say for rain on wedding days, we are “twice blessed.”  She agreed.
We felt an immediate sense of good energy pulsating through the phone and we both were in the place of believing that “it is time.”  Minutes before the event was to start, we already had customers joining us.
The rain was falling and yet they were still coming. The magic in the air, the energy  pulsating from person to person, crystal to person was intoxicating! We literally opened the doors to allow all the energy to flow freely and expand.  The cold weather did not permeate the room, it really blessed the space and the event.
An elegance and joy filled the entire day, and the event lasted an extra hour. As we said good-bye to the last customer, we started to tally up the day.
When I looked at the final figures it was 60% more than I had  declared to the mirror that morning, but I had yet to pay out to the vendor…so I continued to do the math.
Taking the figures of the day, and deducting the vendors portion, I was left with the EXACT figure I had declared to the mirror at the beginning of the day! WOW!
I had OVER “declared” as a LEAP OF FAITH in my year of manifestation!  Well the Universe heard, danced and answered me. Now to continue this each and every day I get to dance on this earth…Thank you  Universe! 

Deconstruct to Reconstruct by Victoria

So, with my asking the Universe to Dance in my manifestation of Wealth:

a) Monetarily –
b) Happiness-wealthy in my daily happiness.  My heart & face to have the same smile!
c) Love-
d) Health-
e) Branding- Being a destination place, a sought out brand and state of being…
f) Soul-Workers-abundance with Soul Workers who set the tone in following and exemplifying what Que Linda is…as a way of Life.
 

At this point, I have not seen tangible steps forward.  Yes, many spiritual opportunities for growth and expanding of my understanding; many synchronistic things have happened, but I have not made a BIG dent in my universal expansion and manifestation of Wealth.

I have worked on many steps to lay a solid foundation for this continued journey of manifestation to Wealth of all areas A-F.  As I have been “working,” there are things constantly revealed to me, that I needed to alter to have wealth. As in all areas of my life: how I “do my business”,view Happiness, LOVE, feed myself, move my body for good health, and how to expose my brand to LA’s consumer society.

I realized that the WAY in which I was doing these things was how I HAD done it in the past.  I needed to update the HOW, like a re-model to a home.  The intention (the foundation) IS Solid, but I need to modernize and upgrade.

The HOW and the WHO I am doing this with…as my very in-tuned friend Tracy eloquently re-stated it is “you need to Deconstruct to Reconstruct.”  EXACTLY!

I have done this very literally with my 2 real estate properties and the Que Linda spaces, but I had not done it with HOW I was running and functioning my business.

I have become VERY clear on the HOW to run the business in alignment with the Business it IS today…not what it was 3 years ago.

I wake up in the morning now, not thinking of what I have to deal with, but what I am grateful for…my love laying next to me, the children in their rooms safe and HOME.

LOVING that I get to really live the life I want. I am healthy and working on increasing that which is good for me…seeing our local favorite chiropractor, Dr. Rion.  Dr  Rion works as a partner in his clients good health.  Reminding you to eat well and to move, because exercise and D-I-E-T are both 4 letter words to me; eating well and moving make more sense and are more in alignment with my views.

The Website is under “construction” to create an updated experience, by offering the customer an immediate way to shop and make appointments from their computer.

And lastly, I want to invite healers and teachers who are professional; bringing their own clientele for us to nurture as collaborative partners and also sharing our customers who want to expand their opportunities to learn and grow too.  A healer who is committed and available in his/her own schedule, dates and times; wanting to rent their own space within our space. Healers and teachers who want a place of their own to Construct a solid business within our collective whole.

So, a few months deeper into this manifestation Journey to Wealth; it is one of monetary riches, happiness on a daily knowing, LOVE-deep and authentic LOVE; health-mentally, physically and spiritually; wealth of my Brand of Que Linda/Body N’ Soul Studio at 3608-3610 1/2 Foothill Blvd.; it is a destination point for the masses. What I have learned to attain this wealth is to “deconstruct” the original mindset of 3 years ago, update, re-model and upgrade all areas in order to Reconstruct the Authentic and Daily Living of WEALTH in all areas, A-F and beyond!

Believing TWO months later; an update!

The believing project is almost two months old now. Much has changed in my life and what I notice the most is my mantra, “If not now, when?”  And as I drop down through the valley of myself, hit with past experiences meant to stop a freight train; a feeling comes to me that I can only describe as my  becoming Lindsay Wagner,  bionic woman, picking up the freight train and  re-setting it on its track.

I’ve put myself in a position to show up in my life as though I’m 20 once again, yet now, I’m clear on what I want to do from MY heart. This is the first time I’m leading solely (soul-ly) with my heart.

I know that courage (strength of heart) has become my ally in a way that I never could have imagined, as each minute I choose myself and what I want for me; the opportunities open up and come to me.

This journey has its days when I feel like nothing is going my way, then with every ounce of mental and emotional focus, I STOP. I stop the discouraging voice, the pattern of believing my past is my present and I don’t deserve what I want, and so on… AND then like a lioness I roar!! Overcoming and “changing” a behavior in that moment, it takes time, but I feel different each day. I thought I had self-awareness before, this has moved to a whole new level!

The FUN part is I have absolutely no idea what this will end up looking like professionally or personally; I am just believing and trusting. I have found more confidence that I deserve the list I wrote over two months ago.

You can find that post here .

On my list of 6 items this is where they stand:

(a) Each day, I am writing my book, “knowing” it will be published. It is just flowing right through me and is truly becoming a great love for me!

(b) In September, I was very fortunate to attend the wedding of a dear friend in Mammoth. It was a very grounding experience for me, and a complete joy!  And I have been meeting new people on a very regular basis!

(c) Ah yes, to be blissfully wed to my best friend and soulmate at some point in 2012. I remember when I wrote it, I thought maybe I should put engaged or some other lesser stage of commitment, but this for whatever reason felt right! Call me crazy, but we’ll see! The who; when or where; is a mystery. I keep opening myself up as love in the broadest sense and the most intimate. I know if I’m open and participating in my life happily and honestly, a dynamic, authentic, solid partnership is the outcome. It will be based on intimacy, respect, truth, trust, unconditional love and friendship.

You see settling, is in the past, when it comes to all areas of my life.

(d) In the past week, I have 3 new coaching clients, which I am thrilled to be able to partner with on their journey.  I have also had new clients come in for intuitive readings in the past two months and refer others to me too.

(e) This one is a little different, as much has changed in this particular area of my life. The company I was doing marketing for has come into a little crunch, as the product has not been released as of yet and cash flow grows tighter daily. In the midst of trying to figure out what I was going to do and how I would take on the next part of my existence; I wrote out a proposal and sent it out to a few of my clients, in which I detailed what I was about to embark on in my life. You can read about it here .

What a perfect opportunity for me to take a complete leap of faith, right? If I am committed to “me”, growing my own business, writing my book, etc…then why not make “now” the time? I mean, really…I coach people on leading their lives with their hearts to REALIZE those long forgotten dreams! So, here I am. Scared? Some moments, but I am focused and the more action I take, the more empowered I feel!

In focusing my energy on my coaching practice, my book and my life… I leave behind a nagging fear. I have worked hard to allow my work to bloom. I am 100% believing at this point, folks! So, I hope you will join me as I soar to new heights, overcome the valleys of darkness in myself and realize my dreams! Even though I have no safety net;  I know I won’t be homeless. I know I won’t be alone. I believe I’m  learning to roll with change in a different way- not victimized, but empowered.  I am determined to create what I was afraid to create before…fulfilling prosperity and success in ALL areas of my life.

My proposal

This is a letter I have created and started sending out to people I know. I am inspired, partially because I have set forth believing certain things would come together this year and I am ready to really take life on, fully! I also know I am putting it all out there and this is just another avenue!

This is an unusual request. My hope is that you will pass this on to everyone you know and that they too will pass it on to their circle. I am providing an outline to you of a creative opportunity.

I am a transformative coach. I help people to release obstacles, which keep them from living a more relaxed, happy and dream-fulfilling existence. I believe in living from your heart. I have decided to put that statement into ACTION.

I am embarking on fulfilling my promise to myself in the hope that it will not only benefit me, but also benefit many in my life and help others in this world. I am committing to creating my business on a much larger scale in this coming year.

I am fortunate to have the support of Victoria, Emma and the Que Linda community. Now, what does it mean to create my business on a larger scale?

It means putting the plans into full-time action that I have been unable to do because of cost and time constraints.

It means asking for financial support far and wide in this endeavor as I commit myself to bringing the following to fruition this year:

1. Writing and completing my book “The manual to The Universe”

a. Creating my podcast and fulfilling radio show invitations based on the book.

b. Revitalizing my website to include ecommerce

c. Incorporating my company 13Degreez to support my endeavors

d. Writing and completing my e-course offerings from the book.

2. Creating my DVD series based on the book

It is a long list, but as many of you know this is about living from my heart. It is about continuing to create the life I want and to show others it can be done if you just “believe” and apply action to that faith. We all have it in us!

It is my dream and whether I receive financial support or not, I AM DOING IT!!! Woohoo!

It has been a long journey to this point. There have been many twists and turns on my path that it seems like taking a risk at this stage in my life is a little like joining the circus. I have worked in corporate America as a Vice President and other managerial roles over the years. I have applied my mentoring skills, along with my coaching training and my heart to being a coach. I have a stake in everyone who comes through my door and I love watching people blossom.

At times in my life, this connection to what I do has been nonexistent. I have lost more than I have won; yet those lessons are what propel me forth. I have gone from sleeping on someone’s couch to working in a business that I love!! My existence now is self-honesty, one that challenges me to not allow old beliefs to stand in my way.

I have written out levels of contribution to my endeavor. My goal is to work on the projects listed here and to continue working with my clients too. And so, I wanted to be realistic as to the return on an investment that anyone would make to my life goals and I did a bit of research on compensation or ROI.

I found a website called kickstarter.com, people ask for funding for a variety of artistic projects. Many of the people looking for support offered a variety of opportunities to supporters to have a return on their investment. I have listed them below.

If you would like to participate in this project of mine—you will receive regular updates, enjoy surprises from me in terms of appreciation and the list below of goodies. If you pledge over $10,000.00 you will also earn a percentage of profit from sales of either my DVD collection or books. Once those items are to market, I will keep you posted as to the sales of those items.

I am offering the following in terms of my skills: coaching, writing, marketing and intuitive readings. As the investment grows, so does what I can offer to each investor. Another option is to pre-pay coaching or intuitive reading appointments at a fee of 125.00 per hour or any fraction of that time.

All contributors will be listed on my website and updated on my progress. As well as, anyone making a contribution of $10,000.00 or more will receive the appropriate legal contract. I am grateful, appreciative and know/believe that this will help everyone who contributes in some form or another.

You can invest through paypal on my website at: 13 Degreez and once you are on my site, please go to the page “Groups/Classes”.

Thank you and peace,

Tracy Crossley

Its been a day in testing beliefs…

Here’s the thing.

Setting intentions.

The easy part is stating them and feeling like “yes” this will be my future!!

The hard part is trying to maintain the belief for myself until those little suckers manifest! It is an altogether other-wordly request.

And don’t forget to let go of any attachment to a specific outcome in how it must look, be or sound. What a challenge!! Letting go while staying open can make for an uneasy alliance with myself.

Today proposed an interesting challenge! Let’s just say a lot has changed in the over 6 weeks it has been since I brazenly threw my desires out to the Universe.

It was a list of six items which I asked for at the beginning of September; I’ll spare much of the detail as to the events which have transpired recently, but instead I’d like to share my reaction. Out of the six items, a couple of the intentions were aimed at my professional existence. Here is the url, if you would like a recap: Believing.

In looking to grow and create a prosperous existence; today was roadblock “central”.

I have been handed a few items recently which are pushing me to make decisions that I did not want to and are somewhat beyond my control.

A day like today started the stirrings of a very old battle. It was the worthy vs. unworthy parade of ghosts from failures of the past.

In essence, the “me” right now, at this moment, vs. the “me” victimized by all that has ever transpired, probably from birth. And let me tell you, most of today has been an almost even playing field.

In the past, I have lost everything. And I mean everything in the basic needs category (except my car); as in sleeping on someone else’s couch sort of loss.

There were several things which transpired over a window of time in my life that contributed to this loss. Depending on the day you ask me, I could say it was 100% my fault or on the other hand you may find me saying some of it was just bad timing. Today, apparently, I am in that same place of asking myself the same question….take on all the responsibility for all circumstances or is some of it, just not the right timing?

How much of our lives do we create in our hearts and mind? How much is based on the expectations others have of us? And how much of our lives is at times purely built on the extenuating events of that day?

Perception can definitely influence my mood, my activity level and motivation. If I believe the world is against me no matter what I do, I then have no energy to do something positive…I mean “why bother” its just gonna be another smackdown, right? The old voices of past failures come to serenade me on how I ended up in the same exact place I have been countless times in my life, telling me this time is going to be no different. It’s just another version of the same pattern of the same sad dress, I wore for years when those old songs start humming in my head.

On the other hand, when I tell myself those intentions are going to manifest, even though today looks like “opposite day” in my pursuit of successful, glorious, sunshine-y dreams coming true…a little, teeny, tiny miracle starts to manifest.

What is that miracle?

The miracle for me is to refrain, even if it is for a moment, an hour or the rest of the day from beating myself up.

I am then able to touch the place inside of me that believes the present doesn’t have to reflect the past and the future is not at the hands of some dastardly Universe working against me….I instead have found many opportunities today to be at peace with all that is, and not be angry or feel some injustice has befallen me once again. Even though, I have spent portions of the day feeling like a complete failure, I have had many more moments in which that little light inside me starts to glow larger and burn brighter. 

And, it gives me a resolve.

I feel it growing almost as though I am possessed in certain moments by a motivation that is far beyond me. I see the courage and the desire to believe that, yes little reindeer, you too can fly as part of Santa’s sleigh. And so, in this moment, this second….I believe all my dreams will come true; they may just look, be or sound different than I originally thought, so I let go and remain open to what may come my way.

The Mystical, Magical Birthday

Yesterday was my birthday. 

All I asked for… was… it… to be the “best” birthday, ever!!!

Was it? Yup!

A couple of weeks ago, I started employing a new technique I read about in an old book (written in the first part of the last century) about manifesting and placing intentions in your subconscious. There were many examples of manifestation given in a “folksy” sort of format throughout the book , which contained innovative ways to have what you want in your life.

All roads lead back to belief. Do you believe is always the question, especially when the answer you seek is having your dreams come true!

As you know from my other posts, I am committed to having certain things in my life this year and everyday, I either go with the flow or find myself challenged with believing I can stay with my desire.

Okay, back to the book.

One technique he mentioned in the book was using the “mirror”. The author had done quite a bit of consulting and had employed the mirror as a vehicle for manifestation. In one instance, he helped a pie company who was doing poorly in their sales of pies. He asked each driver install a mirror on the back door of their truck. Before a driver went inside of an establishment to sell pies to the owner, he told them to state in the mirror their intention of selling pies and how many they would sell to that customer. He heard back from all of the drivers that their pie sales went through the roof!! People who didn’t buy pies were ordering them by the truckload and those who had been ordering from the company, increased their orders.

His principle idea was to look into your own eyes in the mirror; then state what it is you want to manifest. Some people have a list, others just one or two things. I took this idea and decided to give it a whirl. For the purpose of this post, I will limit it to my original statement of having the best birthday ever! I was stating in the mirror most mornings and evenings that I would have the best birthday ever! I had no idea what that looked like or smelled like, but I knew that as long as it was the “best” it didn’t matter what made up those circumstances!

Now, when I woke up yesterday…I had a bit of trepidation. I had read a horoscope for the month of October, just the day before and I rarely read horoscopes, because I just don’t find them to hold water (go figure!). Although, I should add a bit of clarity, that I do find astrology and birth charts to have some validity. Anyways…this horoscope had told me that for my sign, yesterday’s date….out of all the dates in the month…was going to be the worst day for me!  I will spare you the details, but hey…having something looming like that makes you check your roof for the possibility of it unexpectedly caving in at any moment.

I had the best day!!! I heard from over 100 people yesterday…yes some from Facebook, but many people were contacting me through my phone.  Emails were coming in from people who never acknowledged my birthday in the past. A few people had not even known it was my birthday, but had chosen this as the day to get back in touch with me…it was wild. Everywhere I went, people were kind and receptive. My kids were awesome! The man I am in love with sung me Happy Birthday.…and all the lights were green on the streets! (ha!) And the synchronicity was off the charts!

I even went to my chiropractor in the afternoon, only to run into someone I had gone out with a few years ago. He was one of those people I had never been sure I was over…and running into him showed me that “yup” I was free and clear! What a great gift!

I feel blessed and appreciative of having experienced such an awe-inspiring love-fest from people far and wide!!! Thank you is all I can say, of course with the biggest smile!!! Love to all!

Destination Place

Another excerpt from Victoria on her year in BELIEVING:

This is to follow up from the last post about the long shift at the LA Fair for the hair care product.

After ringing product every 5 minutes for 5 hours straight,and realizing that the word or idea I had not pin-pointed with any articulation for my own business was a Destination Place. The people coming to the booth at the fair, showed up specifically for the product. As they approached the booth, they would yell out the product name, and arrive at the booth as though they had finally found the holy grail.

The reputation, brand recognition, education and information brought a sense of urgency to individuals to find the destination and complete the process, which was to obtain (pay) the product.

This is one of the next steps for my business growth and success.

1) We have great “offerings” and services for people.

2) An environment that is Warm and Inviting.

Thanks to this work experience at the fair:

3) We have endeavored to gain more in depth knowledge about the ceremonies, traditions, and the experience of each product and service. We then follow up with our client to educate, inform and understand in a way that works or resonates for them. The intention is to have it be a part of their daily life.

4) And lastly, to have our Soul Workers and Practitioners who LIVE and BREATHE not only their modality, but this WAY of LIFE! Our Business, Our LOCATION offers…to EXUDE their LOVE, their ENTHUSIASM for our Sacred Space.

This last shift brought me the full understanding that we need to become a “destination place” for Seekers, for those who wish to do the work, and walk their path.

Today I worked all day in my beautiful space. New product arrived and set a tone of expansive opportunities for new directions and new paths for our clients to examine.

One client-Anne brought in cookies she had made for us. Her love of our offerings, along with her natural talent to create soul stirring foods brought her to bake with products purchased in our Sacred Space~Que Linda Boutique. She created her love offering of Victorian Lavender Cookies. Lavender was crushed and mixed into the batter. Rose water added to the icing. She brought us Victorian Lavender Cookies with a Rose Water Icing…an offering back to us. We couldn’t keep enough cookies on the plate. People of all tastes, ages and gender not only took a cookie, but LOVED the cookies.

As we relished in this wonderful gesture of LOVE to honor us, one of the last clients of the day came in the door.

Upon stepping into the boutique, Jennifer announced to everyone “I come to La Crescenta for this boutique…it’s My Destination Point!”

Thank you Universe within 24 hours of my full understanding, my request, my want…there was my 1st customer to claim “destination point (place)” and so It Is! I know it’s just the 1st customer looking for her destination. I know the Universe will assist in bringing others whether they acknowledge or not this is a destination place for their Soul…

Universe let’s dance and show others the steps to this dance…we have arrived! This is our destination!


That Mystical Magical Universe and Me…

Instead of sharing more about my Mammoth trip, I decided it would be much more interesting at least to me, if I shared events that happened-today-on my journey of believing! So much synchronicity, that when I really paid attention to the details, it seemed to expand by the end of the day!

Patience has NEVER been my virtue; although as I’ve grown older I’m no longer a AAA personality. I am more in the A- range; by and large it suits me just fine. This morning, I didn’t wake in the best of moods. Due to extenuating circumstances that I won’t elaborate on, because I’d like to focus solely on “this” day. I said to the Universe, “I have no idea what this day will bring, but bring it on and give me a sign that my life desires are moving forth”. I sensed a warm feeling envelope me; I felt calm and peaceful.

My gym visit was fine. The irritation started with my carpool leaving without me today. My “carpool-ee” thought I wasn’t going into my marketing office this bright and sunny morning.

As I’m not the Queen of Patience, I was not happy, as I could have been on my way about 30 minutes earlier had I known. I decided to drive the streets; about halfway there, I felt I had been driving in circles with what seemed to be a fair amount of cars. I was becoming annoyed wondering why I just didn’t take the freeway. Although, in the end, what was really strange are two things; first taking the streets will normally make my commute, a half hour; today is took me 21 minutes. And secondly, had I not seen the time on the clock, I would have thought it took me almost double the time.

Once I was at my office, there was a ton on my to-do list. One item is hiring another outside contractor for some marketing initiatives. It was odd, because months ago it was difficult to have found this one contractor and when we did, I was confident we had struck gold! But, he  just stopped returning our calls and I received no response to any of my correspondence for weeks.

I just let it go; I figured I’d tackle this tomorrow when I have more time. I had contacted other marketing contractors over the past few weeks; imagine my surprise today, when one responded whom I had emailed Friday…someone I used to work with and completely trust!! I felt a tinge better.

Before I continue, I just want to be clear...I am human, so please know I will never evolve into perfect.…and I try to help others embrace “all” of their qualities too (perfection is overrated).

I had to leave midday to see one of my coaching clients. I give myself 30 minutes to arrive, so I can stop at the grocery store and eat sushi in the car as I drive to my coaching office. This usually gives me about 3 minutes to spare. I jump on the freeway only to come to a “complete” halt about a mile later! That was all I needed…thankfully, no one could hear me in the car looking up and letting loose! I was a little frustrated; I wanted to eat, and get to my client on time….and both of those goals were looking more impossible by the minute.

As I was at a full stop, NOT moving at all-I tried to send a quick message to my client letting her know I would be about 5-10 minutes late.

I won’t go into my continued diatribe with the Universe, but suffice it to say…I wasn’t very nice. Finally, in what appeared to be a fender bender, it was pulled off to the shoulder….now to pick up speed. Nope! Another cluster of cars slowed traffic to a crawl. I couldn’t understand it, but then I just let go…I figured at that point, get mad or just go with it…

And I did, until I got to the store, for some reason “time” again seemed to be off; it was only 12:49 and I needed to meet my client at 1: 00. I flew inside, grabbed lunch and high-tailed it back to my car. Getting out of the parking lot was another test of my “non-existent” patience; followed by every red light down the main street. I asked the Universe, is there something I am missing? I know I want to internally keep the pace slower, but not like this!!!

I pulled into the office parking lot, looked at the clock, it was 12:59!! How?? How had this been done?

And furthermore, my client hadn’t seen the message I sent her, she pulled up when I did, she had no idea I was about to be late!

I realized “Wow, the Universe taught me something that caused a light bulb to flicker BRIGHTLY”!

Nothing new in terms of what I usually believe, but in this instance it was far-reaching, as most light bulb moments are…I realized, the Universe was in control.Really in control!

I was clear with my intention about eating and arriving by 1 p.m. And I did. But, like everything else in life, we think it has to look a certain way, it has to be OUR way, when we receive a gift. Instead,  the Universe showed I created intentions and participated, but it will take care of how I get there. I cannot be attached to the “how” or what the outcome looks like, but I must play along, go the distance.

I could’ve saved myself so much irritation!

And so the day continued with more synchronicity. After my coaching client; I’m back onto marketing.

I was trying to email a PPT deck to a major corporation to hopefully work with us on co-marketing opportunities. The email I sent with the deck bounced; I checked the email it was correct–sent it again, bounced!! I was not thrilled! And I sent the PPT to my boss, who immediately emailed me back letting me know he was having trouble with one of the slides, even though the one I had was fine. How odd?

Again, through another act of frustration was a gift…if there is something faulty in that deck, it saved us from looking less professional.  Even though it was an inconvenience, it probably helped us…again, we just have to trust all will be well and we’ll get what we need/want.

I went on a walk after work. Thinking about how the Universe worked and would my BIG intentions (the ones from a month ago) be delivered? As I walked, I asked for a positive sign, in my mind’s eye, I saw a penny showing up, I quickly found a quarter on my path.

As I continued to walk, I was thinking about dinner and how I didn’t want to go to the store, right then my daughter called. She was getting dinner  for herself and did I want something?

Still walking and thinking about my coaching office floor.  I’m cleaning out my office this week-end to re-do the floor. I want a carpet (bamboo)remnant. My passing thought was: wouldn’t it be great if the carpet remnant came to me? And about 50 steps later,  a man was standing in the doorway of his carpet store (it was after hours). That was a first! He said to call him tomorrow and he’d tell me what he has in his storeroom. I was soooooo happy, I walked a little farther and then I found my penny.

What a great walk!!! Thank you GOD, my MYSTICAL, MAGICAL Universe. I understand everything I truly want; I will receive. It may look different or seem impossible, just like my arriving on time anywhere today, but I will get there…

And one last note, I went to the drug store this evening to pick up a few things. The checker asked if I had any of their reward coupons with me, I said “no”. She took my card and ran over to the scanner and came back with a certificate saving me $2.00 (to add to the 16.00 I was already saving), woohoo! I am on a roll!

An interesting side note: I was going to do something this evening, that didn’t work out—something from the “past”  not with another person, but another part of me. A part who only knew scarcity; it’s very clear that is REALLY in the past.

I know that its trust and faith….and yes Virginia, there really is a Santa Claus (Universe, God, whatever your higher power is for you).

Namaste~

Victoria elaborates on her Wink from the Universe

This is a follow up to my recent post about my work and my wink from the Universe. I feel it is important to share further my experience with the Wink the Universe gave to me, when placing me in a position to “help” the business of a friend.

Customer reaction to the product my friend sells has been tremendous. I learned that she and the company: educate, provide important usage information and allow for the customer to experience real, natural and multiple benefits to this product which becomes integrated into their daily life.

Customers who were educated on how to use it for themselves, LOVED the product, shared the news and spread the word about the benefits. Those who did not “like” it, had not received the proper information and usage of application.  These individuals were not utilizing it as it was intended, so they were unable to see its real benefit.

Through working at this business opportunity, I discovered it was a mirror to how I see, project and do my own “business.”

This past Saturday, I came into the business I own, Que Linda Boutique. Kenny who is one of my young soul workers was present. We started discussing how we cannot just let life happen to us and then have a reaction to it…

We must pull out our compass and navigate our steps. We must take it upon ourselves to Dance with the Universe to manifest our wants, desires and needs.

I had asked the Universe to aid me with bringing to my business the Wealth of Good and Authentic Customers. The intention is for those who are invested in really doing the Work, and authentic to their own process to come and share their experience with us. In stating this manifestation I realized I was missing the ultimate step.   

My boutique provides/offers items that have great benefit to our daily life; these items impart tools and benefits to aiding an individual in a journey of love and positive life experience. I discovered through this other job that I need to be aware that each customer may not know how to utilize our products, services or offerings to the fullest benefit for THEM. In my list of manifestations; I am asking to go onward and upward with my business. This includes my customers, family, abundance and prosperity, and my health of mind/body and spirit.  I realize I must do the work to aid in the education to my clients of our products and services for practical and every day usage.

After discussing this on Saturday with Kenny, the young soul worker, we continued to move our new merchandise around, creating and setting the day in the boutique.

A recent addition to our “offerings” is a “Prayer Request”. It was created for our customers to participate allowing them to release their intentions to US, so we can aid with connecting, praying and calling for their intentions and prayers to manifest. As we were doing our work, UNDERSTANDING our part in providing the education of how to use our products and setting our intention for the day; the synchronistic began to dance within our sacred space.

A beloved customer, Carol, came in as we were speaking of our sacred space. She is manifesting her intentions so similar to our own…just in her way…for her business.  As we spoke, another Soul Worker, Kriste, stopped by because of my request a couple of days ago.  She was asked to meet with our customer Carol, but wonderfully enough, Kriste needed Carol and her energy too.

From that point on the day just FLOWED with customers, family stopping by to receive an infusion of positive energy and to participate in what was needed for our clients…conversation, information and spiritual networking.  It was so fun to witness!!!

We all loved, sharing energy and supplying our wealth of information to our customers. The day flew by while we received others and learned from our customers with their wealth of information; offering guidance, spiritual networking and so much more. I did the closing register numbers for the day. So much gratitude already for what had transpired from our own Understanding, to the Universe bringing, guiding and allowing these amazing experiences with our customers….a surprise awaited me.

For the 1st time, without an “event” or “workshop” pulling customers in…it was just us, just me, just the boutique doing our work…we made my daily business goal!!

It was a goal I have been shooting for since we opened the doors 3 years ago!!!  It is just one day. But, it is the start. It is the Universe’s wink to me, showing me when I DO as I Know, it all comes and flows. That which I am ASKING the Universe to do for me, can ONLY be done IF I participate.  If I articulate.  If I educate.  If I apply the real life!!

So once again Universe you bring to me that which I need! You show me how and I understand. I know it is for me to do, Learn/Educate and LIFT UP TO THE HIGHEST, so that I can be, receive and have the HIGHEST.

Gratitude!

P.S. I received this email from Kriste on Sunday.

Hello Ladies!

Just wanted to say how wonderful and perfect it was to be with you on Saturday!  “Serendipitous synchronicity…the universe unfolding in perfect timing with a chuckle!” Emma, Victoria…thank you for introducing me to Carol…another “angel softly walking” on the planet.

And Carol, what a beautiful unfolding in our first meeting…thank you for allowing me to be of service and as promised, I will be sending you shortly, the info about the essences and oils “called in” to our Sacred Healing Space session at Body ‘N Soul/Que Linda Boutique.

Namaste~
