Love, Gratitude and Humor

This will be a most unusual Thanksgiving for many families, no need to explain why.

Knowing When To Shut Up

Lately I’ve been craving silence.

Silence in my surroundings and silence in my own internal world.

The craziness of the world between politics and Covid and everything else, has generated so much noise, especially the noise of my opinions and everyone else’s.

The other day I saw these words on Instagram (@buddha.says) that blew me away:

“Open Your Mouth Only If What You Are Going To
Say Is More Beautiful Than Silence.”

As much as I love hearing myself talk and deliver my opinions on just about everything, I am now ready to talk a whole lot less and seek more silence. And, I will do my best to remember to make the words I do speak more loving, more kind, and more beautiful.

Wishing you love, laughter and magical kisses,

Five Ways to Make Your Home Shelter-in-Place Friendly

How long have we been stuck at home now? Has it really been months? Ask your home how it feels from your climbing its proverbial walls, and it may well be ready for a refresh too.

Recently I’ve gotten serious about “refreshing” our house, from having the carpets cleaned to replacing some furniture, filling boxes with books to give away and clearing clutter.

Surprisingly, one of the things that made a huge difference was buying a new doormat for the front door! For the past fifteen years, I’ve walked across an old, ugly, cat hair covered door mat. Now I have a beautiful, dark red mat that makes me smile.

Who knew such a simple change could bring so much joy?

This happened after a quick consult with my friend, Stephanie Bennett Vogt, MA, who just happens to be a leading space clearing expert, and the author of four books including YOUR SPACIOUS SELF and A YEAR TO CLEAR.

I’ve asked Stephanie to share with us her best five “one minute” tips on how to make sheltering at home more beautiful and more friendly. Enjoy!

It is striking how quickly the place we count on to escape from the world has suddenly become the world we can’t escape from. Our homes have morphed into workplace, schoolhouse, IT department, food court … and, dare I say, repository for all of our unprocessed stress and stuff.

How can we possibly find our center, recharge ourselves, and make our home feel spacious with all this chaos?

It may feel like an impossible task to bring our homes and lives back into balance when everything around us feels like an unsettled mess. But it doesn’t have to be. As long as we’re willing to slow down, stay fully present, and be compassionate with ourselves, there is a way, not just now during the pandemic, but even after it’s over.

Below is a list of favorite one-minute practices to help you do that: shift the energy at home and find your center again. For them to work their magic, however, you need to supply two things: consistency and awareness. Consistency here means daily practice. Awareness means giving all your attention to the task, as it is happening in real time, and being the compassionate observer of the experience.

As you cycle through the list, notice what these practices stir in you. Do you find yourself spacing out, growing impatient, feeling antsy or bored, for example? Conversely, do they energize and excite you? Are you aware of subtle shifts and new insights? Can you imagine practicing them with no agenda, conditions, or attachment to the outcome? This is what it means to practice with awareness.

Give yourself at least one minute to play with these. Start at the top of the list and practice one item a day for five days. Or better yet, for an even deeper 25-day practice, choose one and repeat it for a period of five days and then switch.

And PS, if these practices seem “way too simple,” you’re right. They are designed that way on purpose to bypass fight-or-flight triggers in the brain that cause overwhelm. They are also designed to jiggle loose some invisible clutter – stuck patterns, resisting habits, unprocessed pain – so you can name it, feel it, and let it go once and for all.

  • Wash: In the spirit of this Japanese saying, “Let the past drift away in the water,” take a minute to wash your hands mindfully and intentionally. Release the stringy attachments of your day. Take your time washing the dishes. Smell the soap, feel the cleansing warmth of the water on your hands. Turn your daily shower into a soothing ritual of slowing down.
  • Put away: Take sixty seconds to put away one thing, sort one pile, or round up one area. Push chairs in, turn off lights, make the bed, cap the toothpaste, put the toilet seat down, fold laundry. Make it into a game with your kids at the end of the day: see how many things you can put away in one minute.
  • Clear: Declutter a purse, a wallet, a drawer. Toss lifeless food from the freezer or refrigerator. Recycle junk mail or store catalogues. Delete emails, digital photos, and files. Replace a lightbulb. Make a list of things or issues that weigh you down and burn it – with gratitude. Be creative. Notice what happens to your breathing as you move energy in this way.
  • Sweep: Get yourself a nice broom and sweep the floor or the front steps to bring new energy into your home and life. Clear window frames, curtains, light fixtures, and cobwebs that are hard to reach. Sweep your way to a solution, a fresh start, a quiet mind.
  • Do Nothing: The moment you notice yourself tightening up or feeling a pang of guilt, anger, embarrassment, or resistance, use your one minute today to consciously do nothing about it. Yes, that means no fixing, no changing, no improving… no nothing. Be the witness of the story instead of the story.

As you master the art of clearing in this spacious way, you may discover that it isn’t about the task at all. It’s how you relate to the task that changes the game. It’s about waking up, softening resistance, and releasing stuck energy. The cluttered closet, painful relationship, grinding pandemic – or whatever it is that is causing stress – is simply a vehicle for personal transformation and lasting change. In the end, where we live is our best teacher. It shows us the way home.

7 Steps to have MORE LOVE in your life

Love is quite simply the most precious possession in existence. And my mission is to share the best insights I know to bring more love into each of your lives.

Today I want to share the most powerful way to create MORE LOVE in your life NOW.

These beautiful insights come from my dear friend Ken Page’s life-changing book Deeper Dating: The Powerful Path To Authentic Love.

If you want more love in your life, try this life-changing exercise from Ken:

Think about all the people you know, from your nearest and dearest to people you may not have thought about for years. And just ask yourself these three questions:

  • Who truly loves me?
  • Who sees and treasures me for who I really am?
  • Whom do I trust to have my best interests at heart?

Each of the people you picked is gold. They are your personal dream-team in life.

The very wisest path to love is to nurture these relationships–by doing three things:

Practice giving more to each one of these precious people.

Practice asking for more from each of them as well (yes, it’s true, asking for more is an act of intimacy!)

And most of all: enjoy them. This last suggestion is perhaps the greatest act of life wisdom that I know.

Follow these steps and watch love blossom in your life.

In Deeper Dating: The Powerful Path To Authentic Love, Ken teaches
“micro-meditations;” small practices that take less than three minutes but have the power to enrich your entire intimacy journey.

This micro-meditation can be your foundation for a love-filled life.

Micro-Meditation: The Love that’s Already Yours

Pick the person who stood out for you most as you reflected on your relationships. Now try the following:
Think about what you love most about this person.

Think about the quality of this person’s love for you.

Remember one time that you deeply felt the bond between the two of you.

Hold this person to your heart for a moment and say “Thank you.”

And now, just let your love quietly ripple through you.

Practice this micro-meditation as many times as you wish, and just watch as your reservoir of love deepens and widens, day after day.

And I promise you, it will. Your heart will become warmer, your life will become richer, and you’ll start meeting new people who also love you for who you are.

Deeper Dating: The Powerful Path To Authentic Love is a life-changing course, written for single people but deeply relevant to absolutely everyone who wants more love in his or her life.

Navigating Chaos with Grace & Ease

My dear friend, the wise and beautiful Rev. Cynthia James, sent out a blog the other day filled with important and potent advice on dealing with the times we are in.

She has graciously given me permission to share this with you:

These last few months have been quite a ride. A pandemic, social unrest, and political upsets have created upset, division and emotional disturbance. It has been hard to keep up day to day with all of the changes.

I, personally, have had to find more ways to become clear, stay focused and stay still within myself. Quite frankly, I have had to learn how to navigate the chaos of these times.

Let me share what I mean by first beginning with definitions.

To Navigate: to move on, over, or through (water, air, or land) in a ship or aircraft; to manage or direct a course.

The word chaos derives from a Greek word meaning “chasm” or “void,” which makes sense, given that chaos also refers to the formless state of matter before the cosmos was created. It also means a state of utter confusion or disorder; a total lack of organization or order. any confused, or disorderly mass.

Many of my clients, worldwide, describe their current life situation as chaotic. People are working virtually. Homes are now combinations of workplace, home schooling, parenting, and family life.

People are experiencing depression from having no time or space for themselves. Children are going “stir-crazy” and young people are becoming rebellious. They simply want to get out, be with friends and connect. Single people are desperate to date and commune. Families are suffering from lack of in-person connection.

Some people call this the “nervous” factor. This means that people no longer have the luxury of a leisurely approach to life and/or business. Instead, chaotic conditions start their day and do not stop. Even while sleeping, people feel anxious and disturbed.

We are in a time of great transition. In childbirth, transition is the last phase and the most difficult phase of labor. Contractions intensify. It can be so powerful that some women begin to doubt their ability to birth the baby naturally and start requesting medications. Irritability and upset can also increase. Every woman has been told about this phase but when it is occurring, managing the pain and energy becomes hard.

I think humanity is experiencing the same thing. Everything is intensifying and many of us doubt our ability to navigate these uncharted waters. We know life changes. We know that we cannot predict the future. We also know that human beings don’t always deal with change easily. Even though we consciously know that… we have become anxious, intolerant, impatient, and even cranky.

So, what is the answer? How do we manage these times? I want to give you some tools.

Tools To Manage Chaos

  1. Get in touch with your INNER ADVISOR/INTUITIVE NATURE. Use the pathway of the body to lead you to your sanctuary. Simple meditation or breathing techniques can support.
  2. Find PEOPLE that are willing to hold you in love, and to support only the highest vision for your life. You do not want naysayers. You want people that have strong faith and can stand with you through trying times.
  3. Activate FAITH and AFFIRM the Truth of your life through the spoken word (i.e., I live in a safe Universe or No matter how I feel, in this moment, I am okay.) These simple statements can create powerful shifts.
  4. Invite LOVE in (even virtually) -. Texts, zoom, emails, and phone calls make a difference.
  5. Tell the TRUTH about your fears, doubts and challenges. You cannot run; they will chase you. Sometimes you have to think about or write your feelings before expressing them. However, you do it is fine. Just do it! You do not want to carry that energy in your body. Get a counselor, coach or therapist if needed.
  6. RELEASE rage and anger. – Writing or journaling is a powerful tool. James W. Pennebaker, author and professor, did a lot of research on the power to heal through writing. Studies show that when individuals write about emotional experiences, significant physical and mental health improvements follow.
  7. OBSERVE your resistance. This energy is a messenger. PAUSE. What are you afraid of? What dream or person are you running from? What do you need to move into a more powerful way of being? What support what really support you in this moment?
  8. Practice FORGIVENESS of your thoughts, feelings and projections. Holding on to people and events does not support you. Take some time to release the judgements of yourself and others. Then, claim and proclaim what you desire.
  9. FALL IN LOVE WITH YOURSELF (acknowledge and embrace where you are on the path and your wins). Do loving things to and for yourself daily. You matter.
  10. MOVE YOUR BODY. Ask it what it needs. Move, run, swim, walk, bike, or hike. Movement is medicine and will support you releasing unwanted energy.

I have found her advice to be very useful and if you would like even more from her, Cynthia is offering all of you 30 days of free access to her Possibility Portal for women.

Watching Barbra Streisand on Oprah Changed My Love Life

One evening in November 1996, I turned on my VHS (remember that?) to watch a taped episode of The Oprah Show.

Her special guest was Barbra Streisand who was glowing and giddy as she discussed her tall, dark and handsome fiancé, actor James Brolin.

Back then, I lived in Beverly Hills, and the dish around tinsel town was that La Streisand was a very difficult diva and a recluse as well.

While watching her exuding love and happiness about her engagement, I had a mind-blowing light bulb moment:

“Barbra’s 54 and I’m 43 and I’m not a recluse or a diva,” I thought. “If God has the perfect man for her, then I’m going to be a piece of cake.”

I mean really, how many perfect matches could there be for someone like her?

One week earlier I had been on a bad date with a guy who said to me while discussing my successful business:

“I’ll bet you scare the shit out of most men.”

OMG!!! I knew I was strong and powerful and now he was confirming my biggest fear: that I was too old, too intimidating and too successful to find my ideal soulmate.

My Streisand/Oprah light bulb moment” totally shifted my mindset and I put myself into a state of knowing and trusting that not only was my perfect someone was out there, I was going to manifest him!

So, I created a program for myself and, within a year, I was engaged to my amazing soulmate, Brian, and we have now been happily married for 22 years.

And, then I shared my program with other single, successful women and it worked for them too.

It turns out that I have a superpower when it comes to manifesting love, not just for me, but for women (and men) of all ages and sizes in 40 countries around the world.

I have literally guided tens of thousands of people into the arms of their beloved.

After months of being in lockdown and hearing from so many single women about how lonely they have been, I realized that Covid does not have to get in the way of finding love.

In fact, when I really thought deeply about it, I realized that Covid actually makes it easier and faster to find love (if you know how to do it).

Now, I know this sounds counter-intuitive, perhaps it even sounds crazy, but it’s absolutely true.

And I’ve already witnessed how well this approach works! (It just worked for one friend who is divorced three times and is now age 72).

So, I’ve decided to clear my schedule and dedicate all of my teaching time for the next year to working one-on-one with a dozen women who are committed to manifesting their soulmate/life partner.

I’m inviting you to immerse yourself with me for 9 months where I will put you on the fast track to your dream love life.

Find out all about this never before offered opportunity here.

In 9 months you can manifest that special someone who is your devoted partner, your lover, your best friend, and your safe place to land.

It’s easier and more fun than you can possibly imagine when you have the right guide (me!) walking you, step by step, through the process.

I only have 12 places in this new program and I’m looking for women who are ready for a miracle in their love life, women who are ready to create 100% success and happiness in love.

Does that sound like you?

If the answer is yes, I may select you to be one of the women I take under my wing in my NEW, exclusive, 9-month one-on-one mentoring program.

Is the Universe Friendly?

You probably already know that Albert Einstein, who won a Nobel Prize for Physics, and was famous for his theory of relativity, which revolutionized our understanding of space, time, gravity, and the Universe, was a genius. But did you also know he was quite the philosopher?

Einstein wrote that the most important question facing humanity is, ‘Is the Universe a friendly place?’

He explained that, “ if we decide that the Universe is an unfriendly place, then we will use our technology, our scientific discoveries and our natural resources to achieve safety and power by creating bigger walls to keep out the unfriendliness and bigger weapons to destroy all that is unfriendly and I believe that we are getting to a place where technology is powerful enough that we may either completely isolate or destroy ourselves as well in this process.”

Einstein went on to say: “If we decide that the Universe is neither friendly nor unfriendly and that God is essentially ‘playing dice with the universe’, then we are simply victims to the random toss of the dice and our lives have no real purpose or meaning.”

“But if we decide that the Universe is a friendly place, then we will use our technology, our scientific discoveries and our natural resources to create tools and models for understanding the Universe. Because power and safety will come through understanding its workings and its motives.”

So, if like me, you choose to believe that we live in a friendly Universe, in these super crazy times, it requires a recipe of emotional management as well as being able to surf the waves of uncertainty. It requires that we be with “not knowing,” and most importantly, trust that good things are happening (on both the seen and the unseen plane). Not an easy task, but when the going gets tough, just remember Einstein’s conclusion:

“God does not play dice with the Universe.”

I don’t care how spiritual you are

Do you want to know what makes me swoon?

Beautiful, insightful, profound writing.

I recently discovered this essay on Facebook, written by Taylor Rose Godfrey and have gotten her permission to share it with all of you. She really dives deep into the heart of true spirituality.

“I don’t care how spiritual you are. How long you can melt in the sweat lodge. How many peyote journeys that have blown your mind, or how well you can hold crow pose. Honestly. I don’t. I don’t care what planets fall in what houses on your birth chart, how many crystals you have or how vegan your diet is.

I want to know how human you are. Can you sit at the feet of the dying despite the discomfort? Can you be with your grief, or mine, without trying to advise, fix or maintain it? I want to know that you can show up at the table no matter how shiny, chakra- aligned or complete you are- or not. Can you hold loving space for your beloved in the depths of your own healing without trying to be big?

It doesn’t flatter me how many online healing trainings you have, that you live in the desert or in a log cabin, or that you’ve mastered the art of tantra.

What turns me on is busy hands. Planting roots. That despite how tired you are, you make that phone call, you board that plane, you love your children, you feed your family.

I have no interest in how well you can ascend to 5D, astral travel or have out of body sex. I want to see how beautifully you integrate into ordinary reality with your unique magic, how you find beauty and gratitude in what’s surrounding you, and how present you can be in your relationships.

I want to know that you can show up and do the hard and holy things on this gorgeously messy Earth. I want to see that you can be sincere, grounded and compassionate as equally as you are empowered, fiery and magnetic. I want to know that even during your achievements, you can step back and be humble enough to still be a student.

What’s beautiful and sexy and authentic is how well you can continue to celebrate others no matter how advanced you’ve become. What’s truly flattering is how much you can give despite how full you’ve made yourself. What’s honestly valuable is how better of a human you can be, in a world that is high off of spiritual materialism and jumping the next escape goat for “freedom.”

At the end of the day I don’t care how brave you are. How productive, how popular, how enlightened you are. At the end of the day, I want to know that you were kind. That you were real. I want to know that you can step down from the pedestal from time to time to kiss the earth and let your hair get dirty and your feet get muddy, and join the dance with us all.”

Let’s be more like this. Let’s be kind, and humble and seek to find beauty and gratitude in the messy world around us. Thanks Taylor.

Wishing you love and laughter,

Arielle

Being With What Is

We are now a full six months into living with the Corona pandemic.

For me, and most everyone I know, it’s been a very bumpy ride.

It’s kind of like white-water river rafting. Periods of smooth tranquil waters followed by occasional terrifying rapids where I’m holding on tight, hoping not to capsize.

There’s no map. We don’t know when or where the river ends.

Nobody does.

No one.

There are people who speculate. (and some crazy people who promise a return to normal is minutes away) but No. One. Knows.

Now, for me the question is, “How do I best enjoy the ride?’

It’s a constant, daily, sometimes minute by minute endeavor.

I find solace in the people and things I can count on. I have so much gratitude and appreciation for those that share my view of the world. There is a level of comfort and safety knowing that we are there for each other.

So, this is what IS right now.

And my plan is too have as much fun as possible in whatever way are safe and possible as well as giving myself the space to be royally pissed off from time to time.

Wishing you love and laughter,

Arielle
