Life- What I have been up to :)

In the past few weeks I have gained much knowledge and understanding in regards to myself, my whole life past and present. Understanding more and more how life works. I am grateful for the opportunity to have met Bob Proctor in person, spending four days in LA surrounded by beautiful people, inspirational, motivational and knowledgable. Meeting Mr. Proctor who's not only a great mentor but a man I have a lot of respect for, was on my bucket list. I am happy an grateful for the chance given to me to attend Paradigm Shift and meet this man personally and be in that space.   

Forever grateful to my dear friends Rosangela & Matt for introducing me to this material that has changed my life more so as it is what I needed and have been searching for for years. What I am learning and this experience is a feeling that will last forever and I hold very dear to my heart.

The people I met at the seminar and the new friendships I made are long lasting and based on supporting each other, motivating each other, studying books together,  helping each other grow and achieving our goals! I am so happy and grateful for all of you in my life right now. Reading this blog, supporting me. 

I am studying two books at the moment and other materials as well. I have two reading partners that I am happy an grateful for both of them. I have a live feed on Facebook and Twitter Monday-Friday. Links to both are below on this website. On Facebook I go live at 8:15am MDT and on Twitter I go live at 8:25am MDT. My videos are to work and help you with daily gratitude, self love and motivational shares also based on my book studies.

I thank you for your support. I will see you live tomorrow morning!

Namaste,

Samantha


FORGIVE

forgiveness-doesnt-excuse-their-behavior-forgiveness-prevents-their-behavior-from-destroying-your-heart-quote-1.jpg

I wrote a blog on Forgiveness  awhile ago but I feel it is so important to talk about forgiveness and what happens to us when we learn how to forgive and let go. I shared a message this morning on live video on my Facebook page and I read the following:

"The slight misdeed of yesterday, why should it mar today? The thing he said, the thing you did, have long since passed away; For yesterday was but a trial; today you will succeed, and from mistakes of yesterday will come some noble deed. Forgive yourself for thoughtlessness, do not condemn the past; for it is gone with its mistakes; their memory can not last; forget the  failures and misdeeds, from such experience rise! Why should you let your head bowed, Lift up your heart and eyes!"

That is so powerful! Read it a few times. Savour it because it can change your life. People will hurt you, lie to you, play you, mislead you, cheat you, use you, etc... and you at some point in your life will or have done the same to others. That is life and we are human. The key is to recognize it and stop the behaviour, we have a conscious and to be nice should be common sense. Being emphatic of others is important. Treat others the way you would like to be treated. 

When you forgive and not hold a grudge a heavy weight is lifted off your shoulders, your heart gets clean. Therefore you are happy. Forgiveness does not excuse their behaviour. Forgiveness prevents their behaviour from hurting your heart. Knowing this now, start applying this within yourself. You will see that to remain upset, hold a grudge, only makes you sad, unhappy and angry. Use your energy on positive things in your life for yourself. Stop letting others actions dictate how you feel! Be the better person, lift up your heart and lead by example. You have this choice!

My advice to you. With love and gratitude.

Samantha

Affirmations, Gratitude & Sending Love to Those Who Bother YOU. What?! You might say...

This is something that I do every single day. Since the very first day a very wise friend of mine told me to do this I did and it changed my life.

I will share this with you because it works. So, just try.

Every day in the morning be grateful for 10 things in your life. What this does is puts you in the mind set of happiness and appreciation. By recognizing the good that surrounds you, you feel content. Great way to start your day!

After your gratitude affirmations, be still and ask for guidance for the day. The first thought that comes to mind, follow that thought or feeling. That is your gut. You must trust it.

Last but not least and most challenging is send love to those who bother you. Try this and please let me know how you felt after.

This is how you do this, sit or lay down in quiet and think of those whom you are not happy with. Anyone that you are not in a good place with. Send them love.

This does not mean that you agree with their behaviour but what this does do, it liberates you from that ugly feeling of discomfort and discontent that takes place in you heart when you do see them or think about them.

After practicing this a few times you will notice that the relationship with those specific people  starts to shift into a more positive state. At least from your perspective the relationship will start to heal, leaving you and your heart cleared from ugly resentful thoughts and feelings. When you get to this place you will send that vibe to them whether you are in their presence or not and automatically they will no longer play a negative bothersome part in your life.

If you have any comments on this or need more insight please feel free to talk to me.

Namaste,

Samantha

Every New Day is a Gift Not a Given Right

You heard this before, I know you have. Have you stopped to think what this really means? These are not just empty words. There is a message here for all of us, for all humanity. My intention with this blog is that you not only read it but really pay attention to the words and think about your actions towards these words. Say it outloud "Every new day is a gift, not a given right!'

 

Write it down, read it daily if you must. But please embrace the fact that you are one of the lucky ones that get to see tomorrow. We live in a beautiful planet, called Earth. Which we must love and keep safe. We are here to love not destroy. It starts by loving ourselves! When you wake up in the morning are you grateful for the new day? Are you ready to confront what the day brings to you? OR do you Dread getting up in the morning. Getting out of bed. Do you feel your life has no purpose. Are you not motivated? You probably fall into either one of two categories:

1- Grateful and motivated or

2- Miserable, sad, unmotivated.

 

I want to help you move from category 2 into category 1. We all want to be grateful and motivated!

So, look around and find nice things like nature, thats pretty easy as nature surrounds us. If you can see the sun shine, be grateful for that. If you can hear the birds sing or the noise of traffic, be grateful for that. If you can feel when you touch, be grateful for that. If you can smell the aroma of rain or flowers, be grateful for that. Be grateful that all your senses work! Because there are many people that are not as lucky. Yet, they are grateful for what they do have. Key point Be Grateful for what you have!


When you say thank you for all the things you are blessed with, you send out a positive vibration! That only comes back to you in more positive ways. Positive thoughts = Positive results. You heard this before, many times. Guess what? It is true. I am living proof. BUT don't just say it for the sake of saying it, YOU MUST MEAN IT. Feel it. Sometimes life throws us stones and when it rains it pours, but in times like those find your inner strength, push through and have a little faith. Because after the rain always comes a beautiful rainbow.

 

Please contact me with questions, concerns. I can help you be in the category 1 and find your own rainbow.

 

With love,

Samantha

MANIFEST THE LIFE YOU WANT

I feel a lot of people have a hard time with this. Manifesting seems to be a foreign thought to many. People  are under the impression that all it takes is to want something, ask God for it, make a wish and poof it comes true. I am here to tell you that it takes more than a simple thought and wish to manifest the life you desire. Keep reading do not stop as this gets better and better. I may be "new" at this but I know exactly what I am talking about so here I am sharing it on my blog with you!

To manifest means to make your dreams and desires come true. To live a life full of abundance, wealth, good health, love and the whole nine yards. The Universe is abundant and we are all children of this Universe therefore we all deserve to have all the abundance this Universe has to offer! First you have to change the way you think, your paradigms, the way you were programmed to think and feel. You must stop listening to all the voices around you and only listen to your inner voice, your gut. Set goals for your self and do not let anyone tell you that you can not accomplish your goals. Surround yourself with positive people that can help you grow. 

Have gratitude in your heart and in everything that you do. Every morning write down 10 things ( not people)  you are thankful for. Look up to the sky and say Thank You for this new day. Every new day is a new chance to start over and continue to grow. Push your negative thoughts away from your mind and replace them with a positive thought. Be aware that if you are trying to do something and it is not working instead of getting frustrated and giving up this only means there is a better way, opportunity waiting for you. Most people do not see it this way, therefore we see a lot of suffering and failure in people. Giving up is easier than pushing through all the obstacles that may appear in your way but when you give up, you loose. When you push through you win.

Gratitude and Positivity are key. You have got to not only think of what it is you want but You must see it and feel it with everything in you. When you feel inspired to do something go ahead and do it! Do not let fear stop you. Go with your first thought or intuition and don't hesitate, hesitation is fear kicking in. Fear is your worst enemy. It is what is stopping you from realizing the life of your dreams.

I feel inspired when I blog and I start typing away. It is my pleasure to share what I learn, what I feel that I know will help you become a happier being. I help many people by giving advice, coaching and with energy healing. I take great pleasure and pride in what I do. Please don't hesitate to comment and contact me with any questions or concerns.

Namaste,

Samantha,

Aligning  Mind, Body and Soul


REIKI= Love, Health, Balance, Happiness

When I decided to become a Reiki practitioner and teacher it was because Reiki truly changed my life. I felt  peace within, was able to let go of worry, became more connected with my higher self and gained a better understanding of my environment and the people in my life. I learned how to really listen not only to myself but also the people around me. I am now more patient, understanding, open-minded, relaxed, happy! etc. 

I could go on and on about all the different ways Reiki has touched my life. Physically I feel great, never too tired I always have energy. Mentally I am better than ever.  If you are someone who is familiar with this Energy healing technique you will agree with me that it is indeed life-changing for the better! If you are new experiencing this practice or have never tried it before, I really encourage you to keep up with your sessions and to try it for the first time and give it a chance you will be glad that you did.

Whether you are a believer or not that Energy Healing works let me tell you that Reiki will give you its benefits regardless. How? you may ask... Well, Reiki is universal energy and we are ENERGY! Originated in  Japan centuries ago by Mikao Usui, a Japanese monk who based his healing techniques from various Asian healing practices. It is a fact  that disease is caused by imbalances and blockages of our vital energy centers or chakras and that correcting these imbalances promotes healing. As you know the body can heal itself. Reiki is one technique that Will do this for your body, mind and soul. It will promote healing from deep within. 

For more information on Reiki and successful stories refer to my website, FB page  and blogs.

Namaste,

Samantha/ Reiki Master


Find Your Balance

Hello,

Lets begin this blog by revisiting Yin/Yang. Lets divide our body in two, the left side is the Yin, our feminine side & the right side is the Yang, our masculine side. Yin is our feelings & Yang is our logic. How important do you think it is to have Yin/Yang well cleared and balanced? Very!

When we go through difficult situations in life like a break up, death of a loved one, loss of something meaningful to us, for e.g., We tend to react, in different ways of course trying to deal with the pain. Some of us vent and confide in a trusted friend or shrink. Some of us hold it in, hide it inside, lock it away and throw away the key. Some of us may turn to drinking or other addictions to numb the pain. Others turn to working out, which is great for releasing the stress, BUT does not heal the root of the problem, the emotion. Others turn to their work making work their only and very first priority in life. BUT what we must understand and learn now is that when we do these things, react in these ways, we are NOT healing the emotion! We are NOT healing the emotions that will sit on our energy centers causing us more pain and illnesses.

So lets see which emotions sit where and some of the side effects you will feel as a result of not healing the emotion.

Throat center is our communication center. Right to speak and be heard. When blocked/hurt, we will experience lack of trust, self expression issues, lack of nurturing, to name a few.. Also Thyroid problems.

Heart center is our social identity, the right to be loved and love. We may feel grief, sadness, loss, sorrow, lack of love and many more negative feelings. 

Fear center is our power center, ego identity, right to act. We hold fears and phobias here. We feel loss of control. Fear of losing control. The big “R”, Relationships. Abusive authority. Imbalance of power in a relationship. All this baggage will cause all kinds of health issues and chronic fatigue. Liver and spleen issues.

Then we have the Old Stuff center. Family sexual issues and creative center. Is our emotional identity, our right to Feel. Childhood conditioning. Violation of the body and personal space. Something done to us, taken away from us. Molestation, abuse, rape.  Trapped emotions in this area can cause problems in the gut, digestion and affect the female cycle. Unresolved emotions will set like cement here. We can get hip and spine problems as well.

Last is our Survival center, physical identity, our right to have. When blocked we feel weak, like we will not survive a life threatening incident. We have survival issues, violations related to surviving like accidents, abuse, rape. Impotence, frigidity. Feeling of abandonment, self rejection, judgement by others, self betrayal, betrayal by someone trusted, pain in the heart.

Problems with right side legs/knees/ankles can reflect feelings of lack of support in career, finances. Can also be a way of showing you to take stock of the situation. Problems with left side legs/knees/ankles can reflect feelings of lack of emotional support. Old injuries that still cause pain are due to unresolved emotional stuff and can be evident for years!

Please start healing your emotions deep within.

Namaste,

Samantha

BEAUTIFUL ADVENT REFLECTIONS

I happen to work with some pretty amazing people and every year as a community we organize drives to help people in need. There are so many organizations that need our help and we are involved in many. I want to share two Advent reflections on this blog that were shared with me by people at schools in my community. Here is the first one:

"What Are You Asking for This Christmas?"  by Joyce Rupp

Instead of focusing on material presents, let us request from the Heart of the Holy what most strengthens our souls and enlivens our love. This Christmas I ask for:

Hope, the north star in my soul, that it may always point me toward the Light of the World.

Stillness, to sweep through my restless mind, emptying it of the cluttered debris and floating negativity.

Non-violence, that every thought, word, deed and desire flow gently from me like a brook caressing unmovable stones.

 Savoring ,to remember with gratefulness moments of beauty and people's goodwill that prompted gladness.

 Other-Centeredness, for the tightly held part of self that ignores, denies or refuses to respond to the plight of others.

Laughter, to retain the sprightly dance of joy amid the endless duties, preparations, chores, and responsibilities.

Perspective, for an inner vision that views each difficult person or situation through the wide lens of kindness.

 Solace, to recognize, welcome and embrace what yearns for attention and comfort in the sanctuary of my soul.

Surprise, so the celebration of Christmas rekindles awe and gratitude for the Source of All Love, and influences how I live.

Beautiful isn't it? I was so filled with joy when I read what Mrs. Rupp wrote that I wanted to share it on my blog so you can read it too and reflect. Here is the other story I chose to share with you.

Every year at one of our District's High School, the Social Justice Student Club organizes a Christmas Food Hamper Drive for families-in-need within our school community. In light of our tough economic downturn, the financial stress endured by many of our low-income families has intensified. There has been an overwhelming request for over 100 hampers - the highest number to date! Some of these families are quite large and require multiple hampers. One family in particular has 11 children (including newborn twins) and a single mother working part-time. For many of us, this sort of struggle is unimaginable.  

 Sometimes this stress manifests itself in our classrooms, as evidenced by a student’s attitude, energy level, and academic performance. The impact of such burdens may be internalized and ignored, and those teenagers go about their day as if everything is fine. Our administrators, teachers, guidance team, resource workers, and support/caretaking staff demonstrate deep compassion by advocating for those students who put on a brave face and hide in the shadows.   

 Collecting enough non-perishable food items, toiletries, and baby supplies is always a challenge, but despite the “tightening-of-belts” within many of our own households, there has been a tremendous outpouring of support.

 Staff members, former staff, and other schools continue to make personal contributions, solicit donations over social media, and reach out to family members, friends and businesses. There have been anonymous cash donors and even a complete stranger in line at a store handed over a $20 bill to help purchase a teacher’s hamper items! Most notably, our students - many of whom face some degree of financial tension at home - have recognized their blessings and offered food from their own pantries.

 Thanks to the Calgary Catholic district staff’s generosity and good will, many of our students will have a much brighter Christmas season.

I feel so blessed to be a part of this beautiful Community and all I can say is thank you to all the people that help families in need and organize drives so we/ I can help as well. There are so many earth Angels out there and I feel I am surrounded by many and for that I say Thank You God :)I wish you all a very merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year 2017!

Namaste,

Samantha
