Unraveling

I love the word unraveling. I feel the power of this word in the work I do as an intuitive guide and medium. I pull the thread to help the knots unravel and let the light in.

To regain our authentic selves, we must “unravel” and follow our bliss, leaving behind the tangled threads that don’t fit into our earthly tapestry.

Usually we think of difficult moments in negative terms. We believe we are falling or coming apart at the seams when in truth we are just unraveling. The parts of our lives that need to be seen are opening so we may fully know our joy. When you think you feel chaos, unhappiness at losing the thread, and vulnerability, you might be on to a key moment. An opening. A gift. Your questions about your life, relationships, work, health or any number of things that concern you are asking you to unravel.

Metamorphosis

There is a hazy mist over the rolling hills of southern Wisconsin and I am pulled out of my thoughts to see its magnificence. I quickly realize that I have made time for this vantage point, this morning, this day, and it is a meditation to stop my thoughts long enough to see this beauty.

The view is from my car window because it’s 6:30 am and I am driving to my yoga class forty miles away in Illinois. My quick burst up the road and into class is a memory and the ever-present reality of my current situation seems to loom hugely, like an elephant in the room that I inconveniently bump into every time I try to do something.

Calling Home: A Prayer

The day is sleepy and quietly nearing the moment of rolling into a new beginning. I call you to sit with me this evening and into the night. I am asking you to guide me to the deepest part of myself. The brave part. The all knowing, secure, always present part.

I have walked through another day with every bit of moxie I can muster. Keeping myself afloat. Moving through this change with a smile, and a nod towards better days ahead. My arms are outstretched; I am balancing on an imaginary tightrope. I am not afraid.

Anticipation

Anticipation - by Rebecca Smith Hill

What are you anticipating this moment, this day, this week, for now and for the future?

Lately I’ve been having a positive, anticipatory feeling wash over me. This funny, happy, goose-bumpy sensation feels incredibly supportive and healing. It seems to encourage me to stay upbeat during some crazy and rather intense personal moments that I am experiencing right now.

Shift to Positive Energy!

Shift to Positive Energy

I spend a good deal of time encouraging my clients to “shift.” Since positive energy is so much a part of my speaking and teaching, I feel the means to reach it should be here on my blog. By the way, I do a lot of shifting myself!

Sometimes we find ourselves in a funk for whatever reason: a stressful day, waking up on the wrong side of bed, challenges at work or at home… Admit it—we’re all bombarded with a myriad of difficult situations every day. How we stack them up is a barometer of our feelings at any given time. More importantly, it’s a way to see what else we may be allowing into our energetic field that might be creating a tornado of chaos.

Embracing Change

When we notice change and think about it or agonize over it as the case may be, we realize we are continually evolving, changing, becoming.

If we don’t embrace change, then what are our options? It seems much better to feel good, even if it requires a bit of “reorganizing”. I try always to focus on the present moment, because the present is the only time that offers us choices.

How to find peace and quiet in everyday life

“I live in one of the busiest and noisiest places in the world, New York City. Some nights I have difficulty sleeping due to outside distractions. How and where can I find peace and quiet in my everyday life?”

We all have moments when it is difficult to surrender our repetitive thoughts and let go of the difficult aspects of our day. This is usually a reminder to breathe, be still, and come fully into the present. Mindful breathing is crucial to your higher self. It is the one thing you can do to become more present with any distraction in your life, whether on the street, in the office, or late at night when you are restless. So breathe deeply and consciously whenever you can!

Join The Big Shift!

We’re in such an exciting time! Do you feel it?  Change is upon us, and is long overdue. This is a time when major shifts are occurring in our culture, economy, and spiritual awareness.

Those who are aware and awake predicted all of this. The old paradigms we’ve lived by for centuries just aren’t working anymore. So here we are on the brink of a new beginning. A global rebirth that has been in the works for a very, very long time.

Put it Out There

My husband and I recently brought a new dog into our lives from a local shelter. We weren’t really too serious about adopting a dog, but we went out a couple of times to investigate. It was a tough decision because we had become used to our freedom: what happens if we get a really tough dog to handle, or if we have issues with training and adapting?

I called on all of our past dogs for help in the matter: “Please help us find a good dog, preferably small, no shedding, and obedient. When the time is right, let us know.” Little did I know that soon after I put out the request we would find our dog!
