Manifest Your Dreams

Many of us want to create what we desire in our lives, but don’t have a clue how to do it.  This episode discusses three simple steps to help you manifest the life of your dreams.

1)   Prepare your mindset so that you are open to receive    blessings.

2)   Clarify and ask for what you want as if you have already received it.

3)   Take action as guided and surrender the results in faith.

I share a personal example of using these steps to manifest the sunset in the pictures posted on my website and on the Facebook page.

I’m starting a new podcast about spiritual partnership and I would love to hear your questions about that topic.  Please email me at suzanne@loveistheanswer.one

Take Action Item:

Follow the steps outlined above.  Please let me know how it works out for you.

Wishing you abundant peace and love!!

Here are the photos that I took that day.

Nobody Owes You Anything and You Are Deserving of Love

Do you often feel angry with your co-workers, friends, family, or partner?  If your answer is yes, this episode is for you. 

I discuss common reasons why we feel angry with the people in our lives and how we can free ourselves from that anger. 

We often search for love outside of ourselves and feel disappointed, hurt, angry, or resentful when it doesn’t work out how we hoped. 

Learn a practice to find love within yourself.

I refer to a previous episode about letting go of valid emotions.  

Take Action Item:

Part 1) Identify the parts of you that you have the most difficulty loving.

Part 2 ) Practice a meditation to connect with the love that you are.  You may also choose to practice Ho’oponopono to forgive yourself or others. 

Please contact me for support or to provide feedback and topic suggestions.

Wishing you much peace and remembrance of the love that you are!

 

The Magic and Pain of the Spiritual Path

I share about some recent challenges that I’ve experienced and explain how difficult times can push us forward on the spiritual path.

I discuss an idea that Jason Louv talked about on a recent episode of the Duncan Trussell Family Hour.

It’s challenging to accept and appreciate the pain that comes up when we dig deep into the things that hold us back.  Learning to surrender our desire to control how our path unfolds brings us greater peace.

The ultimate magic is when we allow God/Spirit/Universe to guide us. 

Take Action Item:

Re-examine your current spiritual practices.  Are they still serving you?  If the answer is no, do you have the courage to let go and create space for the new?

Please email me at suzanne@loveistheanswer.one with questions or feedback.

Wishing you acceptance of and gratitude for whatever your journey brings to you and much peace and love along the way!

Love Whatever Arises (Including Your Ego)

This episode takes the concept that “everything is perfect” further to help you cultivate feelings of unconditional love for yourself and all of life.

I mention a book by Matt Kahn called “Whatever Arises, Love That.”

I discuss why your ego is essential and deserving of your love. 

Here is the article by Ram Dass that I reference.

I review three different strategies for developing the connection between your personality and higher self. 

Take Action Item:

Try one of the method for deepening and harmonizing the connection between your personality and higher self and try to send feelings of love to a couple of difficult experiences.

Create By Balancing the Feminine and Masculine Within

We all carry masculine and feminine energies within us regardless of our biological sex or gender identity.  I review the qualities of the unhealthy and healthy feminine and masculine so you can identify where these energies may be out of balance for you.

Balancing these energies is important if we want to create in the world.  Creation is birthed from harmonized and balanced feminine and masculine. 

Learn how to cultivate the healthy masculine and feminine through taking action that embody those qualities and by connecting with powerful feminine and masculine energies that are around you.

Take Action:

Select one or two behaviors of the healthy masculine and/or feminine and practice them in your day to day life. 

Cultivate these energies within your energy body by connecting with sources of these energies around you.

I welcome you to contact me for a free 30-minute consultation to determine how you might benefit from my soul coaching service.

Please join the discussion of each week’s take action item in the private Facebook group.

Healing Yourself by Getting Out of Your Head

Our society tends to focus on healing through the power of our thoughts.  Learn how our minds can block our healing.

I review a three-step process of learning to notice sensations and feelings in your energy body, discovering what message they have for you, and clearing them.

You are more powerful than you realize.  You have the power to heal yourself.  I encourage you to use that power and discuss when it may be time to seek assistance in your healing process.

Take Action:

This week, the take action item is following the process that I discuss in the episode. 

EXCITING NEWS:  I will start soul coaching sessions that may or may not include intuitive healing based on your needs in the next couple of weeks.  Feel free to reach out to me at suzanne@loveistheanswer.one for more information.

Join us in the Facebook group to discuss the effects of healing your energy body.

Wishing you much peace and love!!

Overcoming Judgment of Others

There are several concepts that are helpful to consider across topic areas.  In this episode, I discuss how souls ages, ego-based models, beliefs, and expectations, and the concept that “everything is perfect” can help us to transform the judgments that we make of others. 

Other people serves as mirrors to ourselves.  When we find ourselves judging others, it is often an opportunity to learn something about ourselves. 

Take Action Item:

For one day, take a break from making judgments about other people.  Instead of judging others, take time to consider “What is within me that I find hard to love?”

Please share your experiences in the Facebook group or email me with feedback.

Wishing you peace and love!

Be Here Now

My clients inspired me to create this episode as they are often focused on anything but the present.  I discuss books by Ram Dass and Eckhart Tolle that are great resources to explore being in the present. 

I review how too much time thinking about the past and the future can make us dissatisfied with the present. 

Here is the link to Valerie Harrison's website.  

Everything that I share on this podcast is through the guidance that I receive from Spirit.  While recording this episode, Spirit guided me to share some thoughts about the cleaning out of the collective basement that we are experiencing in the United States right now.

There is a brief mindfulness meditation focused on cultivating gratitude of your experiences in the present moment. 

Take Action Item:

Practice mindfulness meditation to practice being in the present moment.  Be mindful of any tendencies to practice mindfulness in a way that keeps you in your mind.  Experiment with different focal points including bodily sensations and emotions.

Soul Connections and Twin Flames

We make contracts with other souls to help us learn and grow in our lifetime.  Some of those relationships are comfortable and harmonious and others may offer us many more challenges. 

I discuss the different types of soul connections and what they may teach us.

This is the book by Caroline Myss about soul contracts that I reference.

Learn how to develop greater peace and understanding about your relationships by viewing everyone you meet as your teacher. 

Take Action Item:

Identify a difficult relationship in your life and spend a day thinking about and treating that person like they are your teacher.  Please share your experiences in the private Facebook group called Love Is The Answer.

Wishing you peace and love!

Finding Peace with Your Family

This most recent holiday with my family was the most peaceful one in as long as I can remember.  So, I've decided to share the strategies that I've been using to create more harmony in those relationships.

I reference my previous episode, Don't Own Someone Else's Shortcomings for guidance about not taking it personally if your family members have not been able to meet your needs, 

Specifically, I worked to see and understand my family members as imperfect human beings like the rest of us.  I make efforts to remember why my soul chose my family members and uncover the lessons that I am to learn from those choices.  

It can also be helpful to identify the challenges and gifts that we inherit from our ancestors so that we can make efforts to utilize our gifts and take steps to overcome our challenges. 

Take Action Item:

Talk with your parents, grandparents, or other family members to get information about your ancestors.  Identify their challenges and/or gifts and take one small step to enact that gift or overcome the challenge as it applies to you.  

Please email me with any questions or concerns. 

Wishing you abundant peace and love! 

Change Your Life, But Don't Make New Year's Resolutions

Happy New Year!!  The new year is a time when we typically reflect on our lives and identify the changes that we'd like to make.  The problem is that we know that New Year's resolutions typically don't work.

I discuss reasons why they don't work and offer an alternative approach.  Please refer to Sustain Motivation through Compassionate Accountability for guidance about setting reasonable goals and persisting past challenges.  

Any change that we attempt will only last if we are being true to ourselves and acting from self-love.  I discuss my efforts to change over the past year and the challenges that I encountered.  I also review the hidden barriers that I could not have anticipated including past life and ancestral issues.  

Take Action Item:

Do one thing that helps you to feel grounded.  It can be physical exercise, body scan meditation, or a self-care practice (like rubbing oil on your skin).  

Bonus Take Action Item:

Write out your intentions for 2018.  You may chose to refer to sources that describe how to write affirmations for manifestation when writing your list.

Wishing you a peaceful and loving year!!

Discover Your Mission

Many people search for the meaning and purpose of their life.  Each of us chose a mission for this lifetime. 

This episode provides examples of what mission can look like.  You do not have to change careers or quit your job to be on mission (unless you want to). 

I review how your passions and the challenges that you have experienced give you clues about your mission.  I also share my story about how the focus of my mission has changed over time even though there have been some central themes. 

For many of us, efforts to understand our soul and its history will be helpful in clarifying our mission.  If you feel that you are a Starseed, the book called, Soul Mastery, is a great resource to learn more about your soul group of origin.

Take Action Item:

You have several options depending on how much you already understand about your soul and its mission in this lifetime. 

If you feel that you don’t have a clue, start with learning more about yourself as a soul.

Once you feel that you have some ideas about your soul gifts, create space for exploration of your passions and your challenges to discover the guidance that they are providing you.

If you know what your mission is, identify the barriers to acting in greater alignment with it.  Start by taking one small step this week to behave in a way that is more consistent with your soul. 

Connect by joining the private Facebook group called Love Is The Answer or emailing me with questions or feedback. 

I will be taking a week off to enjoy the holidays with my family.  I wish you a healthy and joyful holiday season and of course, peace and love!

Are You a Starseed?

Starseeds are souls who have experienced incarnations in locations other than Earth.  They come to Earth to serve the planet.  I discuss the qualities of a starseed during childhood and adulthood.

The number of children who are starseeds are increasing.  I discuss how these children are often diagnosed with psychological disorders because the origins of their behavior are misunderstood.

I also offer suggestions about how the parents of started children can adjust their own behavior toward their child in an effort to support them and help them to understand themselves.  

Here is the link for the episode, You Might Be a Hero (and Other Helpful Perspectives), that I mentioned in the podcast.

Take Action Item:

Identify who in your life might be a starseed.  Regardless if it is you or a loved one, make an effort to suspend judgment of the behaviors or opinions that you do not understand.

If you are the starseed, practice being genuinely yourself in at least one situation in the next week. 

Wishing you peace and love!

 

How Old Is Your Soul?

Learn about different ages of soul development including the lessons associated with each stage.  

Understanding ourselves and others as souls helps us to develop deeper compassion and unconditional love, which works toward one of my favorite things, world peace.

Take Action Item:

Reflect on the soul ages and identify the one that best applies to you and other people in your life.  You can share your reflections in the Facebook group or email me with questions or feedback.  

After reflecting, take action to treat yourself and others with greater patience and compassion.  You may choose to withhold feedback that they may not be able to hear.  You may more readily forgive yourself for a mistake that is related to your current stage of soul development.  You may choose to practice lovingkindness or loving awareness meditation.  

Here are the links to The Seven States of Perception: Primary Values and Profound Healing for Indigo Children and Youth and Other Sensitive Souls.

Wishing you peace and love!

 

 

So What's with Past Lives?

I discuss why I believe in reincarnation and how it affects my understanding of myself and others. 

I explore how it’s possible to improve our feelings of compassion for ourselves and others by healing past life issues and exploring our past life relationships and soul connections.

Take Action Item:

Explore your own beliefs about past lives.  Journal about it, ask for guidance, or talk with others who you trust about their reflections on the topic.  Be open to new ideas and experiences.   

Please email me with any questions or feedback.

A Story of Surrender

Ever find yourself at the crossroads of fear and what your intuition tells you is right?  I discuss my journey of learning how to identify and trust my guidance or intuition.

Often different parts of us are in conflict with each other.  It can help to explore what each part is saying and how to resolve that conflict so that we can move forward. 

When we are able to get out of our own way, we receive tremendous support for our goals.  Sometimes that support takes a while to be delivered so surrender is also about letting go of the need for immediate results. 

Take Action Item:

Reflect on your own guidance and intuition.  Ask for guidance if you are unsure.

When reasonably clear about your guidance, identify parts of yourself that may be fighting your path. 

Take some step forward that is in line with your intuition.

Please email me with any questions or comments. 

Wishing you peace and love!

The Universe Is Always Blessing You

I'm always looking for tools to make it easier to be aligned with reality.  The idea that the "universe is always blessing you" promotes acceptance of reality and decreased suffering. 

The goal is to embrace and process reality rather than trying to bypass it.  It is not too difficult to find the lessons in our suffering when the situations are not too intense.  

It is much more difficult to accept reality when unimaginable tragedy occurs.  I also discuss the idea that our souls choose difficult incarnations in order to serve humanity.

Take Action Item:

Identify the blessing or lesson in your own suffering.  Try to surrender your expectations about the way things are supposed to be.  Instead, accept reality as it is and make the best of it.  

Here are the links to the previous episodes that I mentioned:

What the World Needs Now Is Love

When you hear "Love Is The Answer," do you wonder what that means exactly?  Or what you can do to make the world a more loving place?  

This episode discusses how we can make the world more loving by taking responsibility for ourselves.

Your attitude and actions affect everyone who you encounter throughout the day.  We often act habitually and mindlessly.  

When we take care of ourselves physically, manage stress, and cultivate connection and play, we are more peaceful and loving people.  

It is much easier to treat others with love, kindness, and compassion when we act consciously.  

Here is the video that I mentioned and the link to contact your congresspersons.

Take Action Item:

Identity what you need to feel more peaceful and loving in your day to day life.  

Take steps to engage in better self-care.  Be patient and persistent with the process because we have often been neglecting our needs and it may take time before you notice the results.

Please email me with questions or feedback.

Wishing you and all humans peace and love!! 

The Universe is the Limit

Most people have self-limiting beliefs.  These beliefs can develop as a result of feedback that we received from others or from assumptions that we have made about ourselves.  

If we continue to see ourselves as limited, we may be less likely to achieve our goals or create the life of our dreams.  

In the episode, you will hear about some examples of limiting beliefs that are based in anxiety or depression.  

I share several personal examples of how I developed self-limiting beliefs and the steps that I took to overcome them.

I review examples of thinking traps that keep us stuck in delusions about ourselves.  I also discuss the concept of "acting the way you want to feel" to break free from the limits of your beliefs.  

I refer to a previous episode called, Attachment - The Root of Suffering, which you can find here.  

Take Action: 

Create your own "tricks" list.  Identify the self-limiting beliefs or tricks that your mind uses to keep you from living the life of your dreams.  

Please join us in the Love Is The Answer Facebook Group to discuss the most recent episode, share your questions or feedback, or get to know one another.  I hope to see you there!

You can also email me with any questions or topics that you would like me to address in future episodes.   

Wishing you peace, love, and freedom from any limits!

Don't Own Someone Else's Shortcomings

Do you take it personally and get angry when someone treats you unkindly?  Learn how to create greater peace by developing compassion for yourself and others.  

Some of us have developed self-perceptions of worthlessness, shame, or inadequacy because we have taken responsibility for the shortcomings of the people around us.  In this episode, I talk about how we cannot hold ourselves accountable for someone else's behaviors towards us when we act from good or loving intentions.  

You have the power to change your self-perceptions by discovering how they developed.  Once we understand how our story came to be, we can rewrite it with greater compassion for ourselves.  

Through mindfulness, we can learn to check our intentions, check our perspectives, and check our actions so that we act more consistently from our values and a place of love.  

Take Action:

Identify one aspect of your identity that contributes to feelings of worthlessness, shame, or inadequacy and identify the experiences and messages that caused you to develop that perception.  

Choose to be open to the possibility that you can develop a sense of identity that is based on love and compassion.  

I've started a private Facebook group so that we can interact and discuss concepts from each episode or any progress or challenges when you try to implement the take action items.  I hope that you'll join me there.  

You can also email me at suzanne@loveistheanswer.one at any time with questions or feedback.

Wishing you much peace and love!
