my Favs / Gratitudes No. 013 | April 2017 Favorites

April 2017 FavoritesIt’s been quite a while since I made a favorites / gratitude episode so I had an abundance of favorite things to share this week. Today’s episode is packed with things I’ve been into in the last couple months. If you are subscribed to my newsletter you may see some overlap. If you aren’t and want more favorites along with extras on things I’ve been exploring be sure to sign-up here.

Thank you to everyone who came to the podcast listener meet up in Philly this weekend, it was so cool meeting you guys. I for sure want to do another meet up in New York once I move and let me know what city you are listening from so we can meet up if I’m ever visiting. I loved recording this episode, it’s always fun to share things I’m loving and grateful for with my friends. Life can be (has been) so busy but recording this episode helped me to slow down enough to enjoy the people, music, movies, podcasts and  other little things in life that make it so good. It’s good to focus on the things that we’re grateful for rather than the things we wish were different or wanted to change. Hopefully these recommendations allow you to explore something new and if you have things you love share them in the Facebook Group with me, I’d love that.

There Is A Way Through Every Block

1545762_499225636849858_40462029_n

Monday Meanderings  have been a mainstay in Wonderland since I started the blog. A day where instead of sharing a new post from me, I share what has been inspiring me from around the web & a few insta-glimpses into my weekend. However, last week was special and I shared a little story and lesson that truly touched me & this week I thought I’d do the same, hope that’s cool with you.

I teach yoga every Sunday morning  to an amazing crew of peeps that teach me way more than I teach them (you should totally join them if you’re local!).  I’ve been teaching a new one of Yogi Bhajan’s 5 Sutras for the Auqarian age each week expanding on one of them in a little lecture at the beginning of class. They are beautiful, concise, and so powerful.

Here they all are, The Five Sutras of the Aquarian Age:

1. Recognize that the other person is you.
2. There is a way through every block.
3. When the time is on you, start, and the pressure will be off.
4.  Understand through compassion or you will misunderstand the times.
5. Vibrate the cosmos, and the cosmos shall clear the path.

If you’re willing, they can transform your life when you put them into practice.

Today’s class I focused on the second one.

THERE IS A WAY THROUGH EVERY BLOCK. –>tweet it!

Damn, good right? doesn’t it feel better just to read?

I preached that there is a lesson in every situation no matter how bad it seems & that the world is your classroom & people are your teachers. Even in a seemingly terrible situation you can always find the good. I offered the below affirmation that is a mainstay in my life. Say it whenever you’re in those moments of unease, stress, or fear. It does two things: calms you down immediately & gives the Universe time to step in and give you everything you need. & trust me is always does….(proof below keep reading)…

Here’s the affirmation:

type-louisehay

Nice one right? It always works I swear and when you use it, the Universe will give you everything you need.

Case in point: Today driving to my yoga class I woke up with terrible shoulder tension and thought ‘ouch, dang I could really use a massage.’ As I walked out of teaching class a massage therapist walked up to me and said, “would you like a free massage?” I’m not lying! Do you have chills on how perfect that was? I do. It’s just a perfect example of when you are calm and certain of the outcome the Universe will give you everything you need…in my case a massage. It didn’t stop there, for the rest of the day the lights were green, the front parking spot opened up at the grocery store, and I felt completely supported. See how long you can stay in this flow.

Here’s the thing, we teach what we need to learn. I had fogotten this and remembered it after I taught it to others that day. Look what my man YB says about this:

Inevitably we will fall out. We will get out of sync. We will forget the affirmation. We will go into total freak out mode, but when this happens know it is fine. In fact, it’s natural and life’s not about staying in the flow, rather shortening the time it takes you to get back into it.

So how do you get back into it?

Well, there’s lots of ways. You can meditate, go to yoga, or wait for the guidance to come. All great options, but do you want one that is the end-all-be-all for getting back into feeling in the flow? HELP SOMEONE. I know what you’re thinking, if I’m the one in a funk why would I help someone else? Because that’s how we’re wired as humans to help and support each other, that’s what arouses us. This is the best way to get you out of your head & get you back into your flow. Try it. Namaste.

1000 GOAL + THANK YOU + A Few Links

viewer

I freaking love you guys so much. I’m so grateful that you visit Wonderland – daily, weekly, accidentally (welcome), or occasionally. I love it here so much and that is because of YOU.

270990102548412759_4d4IMz8J

A few weeks ago I set a goal with my friend to get my Facebook fan page to one-thousand ‘likes’ by December. It’s a place where I share positive messages, real-time musings, Instagram photos, podcasts, recipes, and posts that inspire me in the moment. It is truly a fun place to hang, so from a very genuine place I wanted everyone who visited Wonderland to also connect with me there, because if you like it here you’ll love it there!  When I set this intention and tossed this Moby song quote on my vision board I was literally blown away at how the Universe showed up and supported this intention I set for myself.

While we’ve not quite there yet (two-more days) I’m super close & that’s because of YOU. My community, peers, mentors, & friends rallied around me, supported me, and helped me to get so close to this goal that I can taste it and I know I will be there by December now.

I tell you this story as a example of the power of asking. When you put out in the world what you desire, believe you are worth it,and manifest it, you literally can call it in and that’s what I’m doing. It was just the example I needed to prove this stuff really works. If you want more proof check out this blog post of Kris Carr’s & this book that is full of experiments that you can try yourself to prove the law of attraction.

THANK YOU!
