Gee whizz it's near the end of the year!!!
And in the last few days, there have been some grumbles echoing through the networks.
It's that time of year when people start looking back, evaluating and some have commented they feel like they've been 'dragged through a hedge this year' things have been tough and there has been a lot of pushing and not much reward.
Sometimes when we get mad about life and start feeling down, it's an indicator that we have done a lot of growing, and we are ready for our next push through a personal boundary.
The body/mind/spirit resets for a bit, and sometimes we can get resentful or a bit achy/headachy as the old energy comes up for release. (Just let it gooooooooooooo.)
A great way to know whether this is happening is to look at all the things you once thought were difficult and see how ordinary they now seem. If this is the case, and you're unusually grumpy about anything, it's a sure sign there is some old energy to throw off.
You will have achieved so much that you can't even see. And when you look back, you'll see you've come a long way. (See my next blog for the Love Tank.)
Some years are about launching and leaping forward outwardly, and some are about inward growth, dealing with issues as they have come to hand and navigating life. These years are SO important, and even though they may not be on the outside reflected in dollars and cents, they are the breeding ground for the courage and skills to push through into the new period of outward growth.
They say 'God laughs when we plan things', and I have to admit that is sometimes the case for me. Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Once you make a decision, the Universe conspires to make it happen.' And I know personally, that sometimes you can make a decision and the Universe will make it happen in a way you weren't expecting. It's good to go with a guide and go with the flow.
The times when you feel you've made a decision and nothings happened, there is something to release, or something to get in touch with. You could have inner resistance, meditate to see if it feels like there is a block or a wall in between you and your desired outcome. Sometimes it will feel like a live energy and sometimes it will feel like no energy at all. These are the times you need to reframe.
Sometimes the desired outcome can only arrive after you have done your inward growth. And your inward growth may come as obstacles that you have to overcome - they may not have a sign on them that says 'I am an obstacle you have to overcome in order to be able to realise your dream'.
Henry David Thoreau said 'Follow your bliss and the Universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.' So make sure you have scheduled in some time to enjoy yourself. It's a very important part of flow.
If you are in the space of inward growth - celebrate it and use it wisely. Send love energy to it - remember it's a CRUCIAL part of your getting to your destination, and keep counting the blessings - the cleaner and more loving energy you can apply to a year of inward growth, the better. Think of it as lining a nest to lay your eggs in. You want soft, bouncy, beautiful clean straw, not jagged rough stones. Every story you tell yourself about how you got on this year is the foundation for your eggs to nestle and hatch in and your chickens (dreams) to grow.
Open your heart further and breathe in ease and grace, ease and grace, ease and grace.
Set yourself a small personal task for the day and a longer term one and remember the Universe is conspiring according to your decisions. Your nest is best lined with loads of bliss and a hearty dollop of loved-up-ness. You go first, loving you is the best thing you could possibly do! <3
Inside it, you pop little pieces of paper with your skills and attributes, little compliments and kind messages others have sent you. You put in ideas about things you might like to do, places you would like to go, notes about how far you have already come and other things that feel relevant. Brainstorm to get your notes, ask your Angels and your Human Friend Angels too for help and once you get started, you’ll get prompts, pop-in thoughts and little memory reminders of all sorts of lovely things.

When you are feeling a bit low – test yourself by holding the Love Tank. If you feel closed off from the Love Tank Blessings, you are in some way holding resistance to the good in your life, you could be tired, need some time out or some self nurture. Drink water, walk, go for a swim, get some fresh air play beautiful music, take a bath, light a candle - and hug yourself. (Or a friend.)
Reposition yourself gently. Hold the Love Tank. Close your eyes and breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Allow the energy of the blessings, wishes and dreams in the jar to flow into you and draw strength and courage from it.
If you are really feeling low, take a good look around at life and see if you can think of some more blessings to pop in, or take out the blessings that are already in the Love Tank, read through them and enjoy them all over again.
Daily (or when you feel like it): Pick up the Love Tank, hold gratitude and feel/send love, joy and excitement to all the things held within.
If we have to have 'rules', here are three rules with the Love Tank.
1. Never to throw away a blessing, no matter who it came from.
2. Every time you put a blessing in the tank, your blessings are multiplied.
3. Your notes must always be written in the spirit of love, kindness and positivity.
Now and then you might like to keep a blessing with you for the day - that's a great thing to do, then pop it into the Tank.
Tips: - A jar is a great idea because you can see into it all the time. A box is good if you want
to keep it private.
-You may like to start a Love Tank for a friend, putting little compliments and blessings
- A Love Tank would be a GREAT gift for your children
- A Love Tank would be a GREAT, budget minded personal Xmas gift from the heart.

When you feel like you can't do this and you can't do that, it is a massive sign that your energy is off balance.
When you feel like you're not yourself, or when you are feeling overwhelmed, you need a reset.
Through my childhood I was constantly told there was no such word as can't. Every fibre of my being hated hearing it, but it has set me up for a life of overcoming obstacles. I pushed through all sorts of things that others find incredibly daunting.
I could. And I did. And now, as I work with energy, I know to the very fibre of my being, that when I feel like I 'can't' do something, I am not only wrong, I am carrying 'can't' energy.
And 'can't' is an actual energy that debilitates our bodies and makes life feel stuck and stifled.
Healing helps 'can't' to be released and for all your I CAN DO IT's to come back.
If you are currently saying can't to things in your life, give me a yell. I CAN help.
