How to Live Brightly, Ideas to get you out of a rut.

How to Live Brightly, Ideas to get you out of a rut.

Being in a rut... sucks. It feels like it will never end and that once again you are  stuck learning more "lessons" when you thought you had this whole life thing figured out. Ruts can sneak up on you, and rather than sitting around wasting time trying to figure out how it could have happened again, let's just get over it and get out of it.  When you're feeling stuck, "get over it" is annoying to hear I know, but it's the truth so here are some ideas I started journaling to help me get out of my ruts, and hopefully they will help you. 

  • Exercise.
  • Breathe fresh air
  • Have pets and talk to them
  • Give your friends random presents
  • Laugh
  • Dance
  • Sing
  • Get your nails done or get a massage
  • Get enough sleep
  • Make stuff - find a creative outlet
  • Do Yoga
  • Go outside and pretend you see fairies and talk to them. - remember how fun it was to pretend as a little kid? It's still just as fun, we just have to allow ourselves to play.
  • Keep a thank you notebook. Write down even the most basic things you're thankful for, like that great cup of coffee you woke up to. Or that you left the house on time today and now you won't be late to your first meeting.... :)  (I really have a being late issue if you didn't know already lol) 
  • Say nice things to yourself! Correct yourself quickly and say "sorry self" when you think mean thoughts about you or anyone for that matter. Take a deep breath and say "highest and best" and then move your body and stay busy.
  • Keep your space clean -vacuum the hard to reach spots once in a while. Throw out old files, old papers, etc. No more saving everything, it just darkens up the place.
  • Forgive yourself, and say it out loud. 
  • Don’t think. Just do.

If you need a mood pick up, work on something from the above list and do it the BEST you can. Sometimes when we feel our energy starting to dip, the best thing to do is get busy working on something you can feel proud of. It's like giving your heart a little zap of self love.

So... When you start to panic about not knowing what your mission in life is.. Or not knowing what to do next... Just breathe and tell yourself to Live Brightly, slow down, and pick something off this list to do right away. Next thing you know, you’re on to your next adventure and feeling better.  And if you need a reminder to look at this list even... (like I do) here is the bracelet that I wear to remind myself to get after it. I mean, you're awesome, and you DO NOT GIVE UP. Ever. :)

How to deal with the loss of a loved one with Pennies from Heaven

Ever find random pennies laying around? Ever find them in the weirdest place at the weirdest moment? I do, all the time and right when I need them actually. 

Some people say those pennies are being left there for you by a loved one who has passed on, or by your guardian angels as a sign you're being watched over and you're on the right path.  Others say they're a sign of good luck, while some people would say "it's just a penny, who cares".  Whatever you believe is up to you, however I have come to know they are left for me by my father.  He's been gone for 9 years now and I promise you it still feels like it was just yesterday. Finding his pennies helps me with the loss, and its just that simple.  

The thing is...I chose to believe they were from him, and its that choice that will help you deal with the loss.  When you choose to believe, those pennies will start to show up in the strangest places. Losing someone you love isn't an easy thing to understand or get over,  so if choosing to believe that you're being sent pennies from heaven helps you deal with it then so be it.  Keep them all together in a bottle and I'm telling you... at your lowest moments you'll see all of those pennies and remember you still have some sort of contact with that person. You'll remember all of the weird places you found each penny and I promise you that will eventually help you get through the sadness.  

I created the Guardian Angel Wing in a bottle to store my pennies and have made them available for you to use as well. In fact, I would actually be honored to make one for you knowing that it will help you through some rough times.  The wings are hand made with Swarovski Crystal and can be customized if you'd like to put your name on the back or someone's name you'd like to honor and connect with. 

I'll even ask my Dad to tell your loved one that you're on the lookout now for their Pennies from Heaven. :)

Negative Energy Protection Bracelet

With all that is going on in the world today, and all of the negative energy that swirls around us constantly... I haven't left the house without this little crystal bracelet on. 

Made with faceted Black Tourmaline beads and Swarovski crystal, it looks pretty while it keeps you clear of negative energy.  It has been said that Black tourmaline has the following effect: 

Black Tourmaline is a premier talisman of protection, a psychic shield deflecting and dispelling negative energies, entities, or destructive forces. It guards against radiation and environmental pollutants, and is highly useful in purifying and neutralizing one’s own negative thoughts and internal conflicts, and turning them into positive, usable energy. It promotes a sense of power and self-confidence, allowing for a clearer, more objective view of the world.  (crystalvaults)

As with all other crystal items, you'll want to cleanse your bracelet every so often so it can keep its effectiveness and rid the old energy it has protected you from. You can do this by letting it sit on your window sill for 24 hours so it can see the sun and the moon and clear itself properly.
