It is a waste of time for me to compare myself in any way to anyone else. My path is different from any other person on the earth and so is yours. We are happiest when we are in our sweet spot, doing our own thing in the best way we possibly can. I am different. I am okay that I am unique. It is safe for me to be myself and start shining.
Just because you have a bad day or just because your child had record-breaking all around rotten day, you are not a failure. One of the quickest ways to feel down about yourself is to concur with your adversary that you are failing in any one area of your life. I have noticed that it is all too common for women to feel like they are failing at motherhood. What a cruel joke. Just because a day fails to please you and does not meet your own standard, does not mean that YOU are a failure. Please stop giving in to the lies the adversary sends your way.
“Failure” does not exist unless you allow it to be part of your world. Refuse to be defined by outcomes and momentary setbacks. Recognize that you can take any moment and learn from it and then your previous “failures” will become something that provided knowledge that pushed you forward toward your goals. It is good to discover the way not to do something and it is great that we get to try a new approach tomorrow. Own your own power and feel gratitude that you can try again tomorrow. As Johnny Cash said:
Out with failure and in with gratitude and positive thoughts!
I just finished reading Yann Martel’s Life of Pi. The best part of the book was Chapter 56, which perfectly describes fear.During almost every client session, fears are released and replaced with affirmations. Fears are limiting to our progress and performance. Do you have fears that need to be released? Schedule a private session and live your best life as you feel free to become your best self.
I must say a word about fear. It is life’s only true opponent. Only fear can defeat life. It is a clever, treacherous adversary, how well I know. It has no decency, respects no law or convention, shows no mercy. It goes for your weakest spot, which it finds with unerring ease. It begins in your mind, always. One moment you are feeling calm, self-possessed, happy. Then fear, disguised in the garb of mild-mannered doubt, slips into your mind like a spy. Doubt meets disbelief and disbelief tries to push it out. But disbelief is a poorly armed foot soldier. Doubt does away with it with little trouble. You become anxious. Reason comes to do battle for you. You are reassured. Reason is fully equipped with the latest weapons technology. But, to your amazement, despite superior tactics and a number of undeniable victories, reason is laid low. You feel yourself weakening, wavering. Your anxiety becomes dread.
Fear next turns fully to your body, which is already aware that something terribly wrong is going on. Already your lungs have flown away like a bird and your guts have slithered away like a snake. Now your tongue drops dead like an opossum, while your jaw begins to gallop on the spot. Your ears go deaf. Your muscles begin to shiver as if they had malaria and your knees to shake as though they were dancing. Your heart strains too hard, while your sphincter relaxes too much. And so with the rest of your body. Every part of you, in the manner most suited to it, falls apart. Only your eyes work well. They always pay proper attention to fear.
Quickly you make rash decisions. You dismiss your last allies: hope and trust. There, you’ve defeated yourself. Fear, which is but an impression, has triumphed over you.
The matter is difficult to put into words. For fear, real fear, such as shakes you to your foundation, such as you feel when you are brought face to face with your mortal end, nestles in your memory like a gangrene: it seeks to rot everything, even the words with which to speak of it. So you must fight hard to express it. You must fight hard to shine the light of words upon it. Because if you don’t, if your fear becomes a wordless darkness that you avoid, perhaps even manage to forget, you open yourself to further attacks of fear because you never truly fought the opponent who defeated you.
A simple Belief Breakthrough session, either group or personal, releases the fears that keep us stuck. This type of healing is amazing because you can permenantly release the fears that previously had the potential to torment you for days on end. I often work with business men and women that are embarking on new projects and opportunities. They are driven, inspired, and committed to their success, yet fears creep in and nearly paralyze them from moving forward. A quick appointment allows my clients to let go of those fears and other blocks that have kept them stuck, so they are free to enjoy their lives and new prosperity. I love helping my clients experience their true selves!
Feed the kids. Clean the house. Fulfill civic responsibilities. Create. Be involved in your neighborhood. Exercise. Eat healthy. Connect with your spouse or significant other. Increase your spirituality. Build your business. Take time to serve another. Run the errands. Pay the bills. Enjoy some personal time. Meet friends for dinner.
There are so many good, necessary, and important things vying for both our time and attention. Everyone has to prioritize their time, and it becomes a major juggling act to make even the basics happen. And then there are the people who know they were born to do something big. These people know they have a purpose and feel driven to achieve their dreams and goals. Everyone on the earth has a purpose, a mission to perform, and gifts that only they can bring to the world. The only difference for the people living with a purpose is that they have connected to their mission. They know what they were born to do and they CANNOT rest until they fulfill that mission. People with a purpose feel the pressures of the juggling act in astute ways and their desire to successfully fulfill their purpose can become a stumbling block as they try to throw one more ball into the mix.
Perhaps you feel driven to write a book, to open a new business, start a website or create a charity organization. Maybe the promptings you are receiving are simple but you still can’t figure out how to work one more thing into your busy life. Jugglers find a rhythm and the greatest jugglers keep adding one ball after another and manage to keep them all going at the same time, their touches becoming lighter and faster all the time.
I accept that I only have the same 24 hours that everyone else has to work with, yet there are things I feel driven to do. As I rely on myself and try to juggle more and more, I find I grow weary. I start to feel burdened and overwhelmed. I quickly start dropping balls everywhere and then can’t seem to get them picked up and back in the air!
Fortunately, I do not have to rely on myself as I add more and more balls into my juggling act! The balls I am trying to juggle include my family, each family member’s individual needs, my household responsibilities, church duties, personal spiritual development, clients, business projects, people, and more! It is far to overwhelming to do it all by myself. I have learned to rely on Heaven’s infinite help. I constantly check in with Heaven and find out which balls I need to juggle. I then only focus on the things, people, or activities that He has confirmed are the most important on any given day. Some days I focus more on my family, and other days my focus turns to business projects, church service, or perhaps even a certain individual. I let Heavenly Father toss me the balls He wants me to juggle each day, and then I visualize Him catching all of my other balls and keeping them in motion for me. I know that his capabilities are far greater than mine. He knows which balls need my highest priority and attention and which balls can be left alone for a day or two or month even. As we work in tandem to keep my (our) balls in the air, He sometimes tosses in a ball or opportunity that is unexpected. I am always surprised as pockets of time open up for me and I am able to “juggle” more than I thought I possibly could.
Occasionally, I have tried to bring in my own extra balls. I have become distracted with things that do not fit into the balance Heavenly Father and I created together. I usually feel the imbalance as stress mounts and I realize I am juggling too many of the wrong things. A correction is made, I repent, and then I go back to submitting to His will and guidance. When I am in harmony with His will, I am able to juggle more and more. Like a superior juggler, my touch on each”ball” becomes lighter and requires less of me, and I am able to bring more joy to myself and others.
Friday morning I found myself on an east-bound flight and had the thought to look out the window. I quickly looked out the window and I realized how close I am to the coast and felt grateful. A quick thought came and I was impressed how short this life really is. I realized that if God could create oceans and land and everything that live in both, he can certainly take care of me and mine.
As I viewed the vastness of San Diego, I knew that my little house is one of the smallest parts of this place we call home. Can you see my house? I know, it is hard to find since it is so small. It really is just a little dot in the landscape. What if our time and experiences on this earth are as small as my house in the grand scheme of things? And then I knew that it is really true that this life is just a small part of the eternal plan.
I know the Lord told us and the Prophet Joseph Smith, “Peace be unto thy soul; thine adversity and thine afflictions shall be but a small moment,” but on that plane ride I caught a glimpse of just what He meant. I think this is what they call the eternal perspective and it makes me grateful for the gospel that teaches us these truths.
Affirmation to try: I maintain an eternal perspective throughout my day as I experience all that life has to offer.
***If you have found that life is feeling tiresome and if you are finding it difficult to maintain an eternal perspective, please consider scheduling an Belief Breakthrough session. Clearing your energy brings a sense of balance and opens your ability to handle and enjoy life.***

I love that a simple healing session makes the existing reality obsolete. I love seeing my clients release their old models and move into a higher energy that reflects their true selves and inherent goodness. True Change happens in an easy non-evasive way through both private and group sessions.
Clients often wonder why Belief Breakthrough sessions are needed to bring about true change. Making changes without the support of belief reprogramming is like building a new house without architectural plans or a foundation, using scraps and remnants from old building projects. Our spirits yearn to be set free from old patterns, beliefs, limitations, and blocks. Energy healing is the fastest way to remove those barriers so that we can quickly make changes and build the lives we want.
