Are you living in a fishbowl? Often the walls we have erected around us may feel safe, but there is no room for expansion. When the walls are glass, it is even harder to recognize how limited we have become. We can see out, and others can see in so we think we are out there in the world, but love cannot touch us on either side of the glass.
I have been struggling with finding the right and perfect diet for my body. This is not a new struggle. I’ve been exploring this most of my adult life. If there is a diet out there, I have tried it. .. and failed.
I get a new book on the latest fad diet and inhale the information. I go down the youtube rabbit hole and ultimately feel frustrated by all the conflicting information.
When tuning into Guidance this morning, I got that knowledge leads us to intuition but it is not the end result.
Being armed with knowledge can actually get in the way of hearing our intuition. So my answer this morning regarding my diet is to eat more veggies. That is the one thing all of these diets I’ve been researching have in common.
Disclaimer: I am not looking for a weight loss supplement so no solicitations please. My journey is to find the best way to eat for my body for optimal health.

quietly reflecting on
that which passes by
According to the dictionary, a resolution is a decision or a determination. An intention is an act or instance of determining mentally upon some action or result. That sure cleared things up didn’t it?
We mostly hear of resolutions here in the Western Hemisphere around New Years Day. According to Wikepedia A New Year’s resolution is a tradition, most common in the Western Hemisphere but also found in the Eastern Hemisphere, in which a person resolves to change an undesired trait or behavior, to accomplish a personal goal or otherwise improve their life.
But, the tradition has much older roots.
Babylonians made promises to their gods at the start of each year that they would return borrowed objects and pay their debts.
The Romans began each year by making promises to the god Janus, for whom the month of January is named.
In the Medieval era, the knights took the “peacock vow” at the end of the Christmas season each year to re-affirm their commitment to chivalry.
And so on. . .
Over the last several decades making a resolution has gotten a bad rap because the word often reminds us of past resolution failures. How many of us have made a resolution New Year’s Day only to give it up by February? Intentions have recently come to the lips of many New Thought leaders as a way to change our mindset from one of failure to one of the possibility of success.
As you can see by the above definition, the words invariably mean the same thing. I honestly feel that the best word to use for creating new habits in your life is ultimately up to you. Ask yourself this question, which word brings you in alignment with success? Once you’ve answered that question go ahead and set your intentions, resolutions, goals, and make your decisions, declarations to yourself and the Universe. Just remember one thing. Make them simple and fun.
I have created a special New Years Day special event to help you set your intentions for the year. You can find out more here. I hope you can join me.

In it’s simplest of terms a chakra is an energy center that reflects what is going on within our physical, mental and emotional self. I like to think of each energy center as a hard drive that stores information about our experiences. Those experiences and how we process them can determine whether or not our hard drive runs efficiently or whether it is so chock-full of old data that it affects the entire system and begins to shut down.

She asks, can you see?
the suns warmth fading
pretty flowers turned to dust
where are you, asked I
look for me in the stillness
you will find me there
