Which Path Should I Take?

Sometimes it really does not matter all that much which direction you decide to head in.  No matter what happens through your lifetime, you CANNOT FAIL on your journey here.  We are here to have experiences, to live life to the fullest, to enjoy ourselves, and to love.

In these photos, as much as they all look very different, each of these paths will all take you to the same place.  Every one of them.  The path you go down, and the direction you take will alter your experience for sure.  However, if you want to head up-river and make it to the Bridge (as in these pictures), you will get there no matter which of these paths you take.

You can see clearly from the pictures that the scenery is quite different; some appear easier, some appear prettier, or harder, or muckier, or more boring.

From this vantage point, the choice really is yours.  Which path do you want to follow?  Which would make your life the most interesting to you?  Or the most comfortable if comfort is what you prefer?  The shortest?  The direction is in your hands…

If you need some help deciding which path will give you the experience you want in your life, maybe I can help. Visit this page to see more about Psychic Readings.

Which Path Should I Take?

Which Path Should I Take?

 

 

My Guides are My Life Coach

Over the past few months I have been blogging a lot about Creating.  Creating our own reality, creating our lives.  I have been coaching and mentoring for quite a few years now, and I decided that maybe I needed a coach myself.  As I was looking for answers and a coach, my Guides stepped forward and offered to be that for me.  Normally our Guides do not interfere with our lives, and my guides are no different. They are not interfering, but they have offered to give me some extra help and the little “push” that I need to start living my life purpose.  I have asked, and they have answered, for this I am very grateful.

Sometimes it can be hard to figure out what to do.  We have so many things we want, so many things that seem to be missing from our lives.  I see it in my own life, the lives of my friends and family, and in the lives of my clients.

Most people I come into contact with know there is more to life than what is manifesting right now.  Many of you have studied the Law of Attraction and it just doesn’t seem to work a lot of the time.

The Law of Attraction is like the Law of Gravity.  Whether you are aware of it or not it is there.  It is impacting your life every second of every day.  Ignoring it or being unaware of its existence does not mean it is not there.

Thing is, a lot of the information available stops short of telling you what to do or how to do it.  You cannot meditate and affirm your way into the life you want.  You need to take action.

Sometimes you don’t know what action to take.  Because you have gone through so much of your life not being aware of the Law of Attraction, (it is new to you), now that you know about it, you have no idea what to do with it.  So much of what you read is contradictory.  Do this, but not that, this way, not that way.  It might seem to work for you for a few things, or for a short time, then things go off the rails again.  It can get very discouraging.

I am a firm believer that we CREATE our reality, and that constant change is necessary.  We need to follow our inspirations and our gut feelings, even if they feel uncomfortable.

It is for that reason that I have done up a new website.  I will keep this website up and I will continue to do readings for those that want them.  However, I have been told quite clearly that I am to start teaching even more than I have in the past.

I have a very clear connection to my Guides, Angels, God and the Universe and always have.  I am blessed in this way.  I am going to focus more on Coaching and Mentoring, and on teaching you how to connect with your divine purpose in life and to create the life that YOU want.

I have asked my Guides to be my Life Coach and Mentors.  I am ready to listen and to change and to create what I want.  I feel I was given these gifts and this knowledge so that I can share them.

You all have the gifts I have inside of you.  Don’t you think its time to learn how to use them?  If you would like help to create the time of your life check out my new website.  Empowering-Persepectives.com “Personal Training for Your Soul”.

Who Said You Can’t

Stop letting people tell you that “you can’t”.  Stop telling yourself you can’t.  YOU CAN SO.  You can do pretty much anything.  It will take some ACTION but you can do it.

We are so programmed to think we can’t do things.  It’s ridiculous.  It’s SAD.  Start being more aware of your thoughts and you will realize that you probably say ‘I can’t’ many times in a day.  You are probably also told by others that you can’t.

Think about it for a minute.  Let’s say you are thinking of switching jobs.  You have an offer or opportunity but you have a pretty decent paying job now that is as secure as they come these days.  You have been thinking about moving on for a while, but have been afraid.  You think about it, and say “I can’t change jobs, I have a good one now, what if the new one doesn’t work out”.  Well, first of all, if you don’t move or make a change, nothing will ever change.  Praying for change won’t do a dam thing if you are constantly thinking ‘can’t’ and you refuse to take some action.  So what if it doesn’t work out?  You get another job and change again ~ unless “you can’t”.  YOU CAN.  If you can do it once, you can do it twice or more.  Why not?  What would stop you except for your thinking that you can’t do it?

My son wants to change schools next year.  I have been asking him about his motivations for changing in order to help him with his choices and decisions.  He’d be entering grade 9 and still needs some direction from me.  I am certainly NOT going to just arbitrarily tell him ‘you can’t’.  I truly cannot think of a good reason why to say no.  I also will NOT tell him he can’t change back if he does not like the new school.  What would I be teaching him if I told him “Okay, but if you make this decision you are stuck with it, you can’t change again later”?  I am actually quite proud of him that he is brave enough to think about making such a big change at this time of his life.  He’s got lots of friends at his present school, and is having no issues.  He’s not trying to run away from anything, he’s trying to experience new friends and something new.  Not something that a lot of us can easily do.  In this situation, I REFUSE to tell him “you can’t”.  If he were to change and hate it, I would not say “You can’t change schools again” ~ if I were to do that, he would likely never be brave enough again to make such a big move.

What about where you are living?  I know at least 3 people in my immediate sphere of family/friends that are very unhappy living where they are living.  Very unhappy, miserably unhappy.  All 3 of them constantly say “I can’t” move.  They have valid excuses (I mean reasons), why they can’t move.  But with all three it would be doable if they really wanted to move and used their repetitive thoughts FOR themselves instead of AGAINST themselves.  They are so used to saying “I can’t”, that they are unable to see a way out.  They have completely shut down their inspiration and ability to create new situations.  Every time they think about moving, they lower their vibration by focusing on all the reasons why it wouldn’t work.  All it would take for them is removing the statement/constant affirmation “I am unhappy here but I can’t move”, and replacing it with “I don’t know how I can move, but I can, and I am happy”.

Two of the three people I am talking about are aware of and kind of use the law of attraction, and positive thinking route.  But it’s not been working for them, all because of a little phrase “I can’t”.  I guarantee, that if the phrase was to change from “I can’t”, to what I wrote above, inspirations will start flowing.  Pretty much everything in our lives has started with an idea or an inspiration.  Nothing shuts down inspiration more than that “I can’t” phrase.  The minute you say that you shut down 100% flow from the Universe.

By saying that you don’t know how you release the resistance of trying to figure it out.  If you could have figured it out, you would have done it by now.  When you use this statement , you free yourself up to get inspiration and ideas from your Guides, Teachers and Angels.  By saying I can and I am happy, you raise your vibration and allow higher vibrating thoughts and ideas present to you.

Saying you can’t do something and being afraid of change and movement will keep you stuck.  Imagine if you had done this your entire life, from the time you were born.  Imagine if when you tried to walk your parents said “No, you can’t do that, you might hurt yourself!”  It sounds ridiculous but that is what you are doing to yourself every day.  If you weren’t you would have what you wanted by now.

If you truly couldn’t do it, you wouldn’t be doing anything that you are doing now.  You wouldn’t even be reading this because there was a point in time that “you couldn’t”.   Everything in our lives starts with an idea followed by inspired action.

Sometimes changing (jobs, homes, life), can take some time.  It’s not always instant.  Maybe you really can’t “right this second”, change your living situation for whatever reason.  Thing is, that if you change the way you think, you CAN get there over time.

When I first started working out hard two months ago I couldn’t lift a certain weight, I couldn’t do quite a few of the extreme boot camp exercises we were doing.  I didn’t say “I can’t do these exercises”. I did not go in on the second morning saying “I’m doing it today”, that would be silly (talk about a useless affirmation).  It truly was a case of “I can’t”, physically it WAS impossible.  BUT ONLY IN THAT MOMENT.  NOT ONCE did I say “I can’t do this exercise” to my trainer.  Not once.  There were a few times where I said “is there an easier way for me to start to work the same muscle group, this particular exercise is physically hurting me” ~~ notice my focus was on what I COULD do, not what I couldn’t do.

Every morning that I go to work out I am so freaking happy to be there.  I visualized, focused and affirmed for over 6 months that I wanted to be able to afford to attend that gym.  Every week, I get stronger, I can do more.  Things that my body was not capable of before are now easy for me.  It’s called practice.  The more I focus on what I do, the more I can do.  I still “can’t” run.  It hurts me.  I don’t say “I can’t run” though.  I say, I want to be able to run, I will keep working at it and getting stronger UNTIL I can run.  I am putting my focus on what I want.  If I only focused on the fact that I can’t run, I would never be inspired to try, to get stronger, to work towards my first run.

The rest of life is like that too.  You need to focus on what you want.  You don’t have to know how to get it, let God and the Universe take care of that.  First, you need to stop saying you can’t, and you need to believe you can.  Once you do that you will get ideas coming in for you that are ‘out of the box’ of where you would normally think.  Then, the next and for now, the MOST IMPORTANT step ~ TAKE SOME ACTION when you get the ideas.  Just like I cannot sit on my ass at home and THINK about working out and get stronger and fitter, you cannot sit on your ass and THINK about what you want to do without doing something to get yourself there.

You CAN do it!!

 

THE PERSON WHO SAYS IT CAN’T BE DONE SHOULD NOT INTERRUPT THE PERSON DOING IT.

 

 

 

2014 A New World, or Same Old Same Old?

Both, neither, depends on where you are on your journey.

We have been in the 5th Dimension for quite a long time now (since the end of 2011).  In the 5th, it is easier than ever to consciously create for ourselves.

Things are changing for sure.  As a planet we cannot go on as we have before.

2013 was a big year for releasing things that no longer served our highest and best good.  I released a lot of ‘old stuff’ myself (subconscious thought patterns, habits, things I didn’t even know were there).  In May I basically asked my Angels and Guides to help bring to the surface anything that I was not consciously aware of so that I could deal with it and release it.  It was uncomfortable to go through some of the things that came up, but I feel so much better now.

Health

Physically I had a very healthy year myself (I think 2011 was my biggest year of ascension symptoms), but I know many people who became quite physically ill.  A lot of the illness was due to ascension, changes in our DNA, and I know a lot of people went through a big shift and detox as well.

With our creative ability being so much stronger in the 5th Dimension, if there are things you would like to do health-wise, like getting in shape or eating better or releasing illness, this year is the perfect time to start.  Do NOT focus on being sick, focus on being well ~ what you can do to be well, and energy work (and visualizations) of being well.  Some of you will see miracles this year.

Financially

In 2008 there was a financial meltdown like no other.  So many people seem to think that it has been over and done with and that it has been back to ‘normal’ for the past few years.  Its not, not really.  It is a really big illusion and it is only a matter of time before things go all weird again.

So many of the worlds currencies rely on the US.  The US says it is recovering.  That is so untrue it is not funny.  Nothing has changed there.  They are simply printing more and more and more money.  It boggles my mind that most people cannot see that for what it is.

Its much like you going out and getting 15 credit cards, a line of credit on your mortgage, a couple car loans and then using credit to pay the mortgage and car loans, and  just spending on the cards.  Eventually your credit will run out.  It may appear to your neighbours or your kids that its business as usual and that you are doing well.  Thing is, credit will only last for so long.

This post isn’t meant to be all doom and gloom.  Just saying it like it is.  What you chose to do with your finances will be a big indicator of how 2014 and beyond will look for you.

As an aside, if I had money in the stock market, I would be putting stop loss, sell orders on them, (I think that’s what they are called).  I personally won’t be buying stocks until they go way back down again, and they will.

Work and Career

Now is the PERFECT time to make changes if that is what you feel drawn to do.  It is all about Service.  Service to self and service to others.  As old 3D systems break down, there needs to be a focus on other human beings.  We need to love each other.  There are so many of us on this planet and we all have different gifts, different wants and needs, different points of view.  Community is important, service to others is important.  If you focus more on Service to Self ~ via doing work that you enjoy; and more on Service to Others ~ by providing wants or needs for someone else via your work, you will feel very fulfilled going into the future.

*** you can certainly still do 3D work, you may just need to change your approach to it, and your thoughts about it.

For myself, I am going to be doing a lot more teaching, mentoring and training.  I will still do some readings, but I have been doing them for many years and I think it might be time for me to do more work with helping you understand, and enhance your abilities.

Relationships

October of 2013 was a crazy time for relationships.  The planetary influences and the energy of the planet both added to volatile situations.  Many long term relationships were challenged, and got better.  Some ended.

For 2014 it is smoother sailing for relationships IF you resolved your issues in October.  If you realized in October that you were in the wrong relationship for you, and you stayed in it, it will not likely get any better (I am sure there will be a few exceptions to this, but not many).   Expect major upheavals if you decided to stay; you may find that you end up being somehow “forced” to let it go.

If you find yourself in this situation, just remember, You Are a Creator.  How you respond to any changes is how you will create your new situations.

You are in for an amazing year if you decide to walk into your future with confidence and love.  Your ability to have, be and do whatever you want is magnified beyond anything we have ever seen before.  We’ve always been able to do it, it is just so much easier energetically now.

For those that cling to the old outmoded energies of the 3D world without any awareness or appreciation for the New 5th Dimensional Energies, things may not be quite so rosy.

It will be extremely important to refrain from judging things this year.  A lot of our 3D systems and ways of doing things will be breaking down and/or changing.  We cannot go on as we have.  As you live with and observe what is happening, do not judge it as ‘good or bad’, it just is.  2013 was a challenging year personally for many of you, well 2014 might end up being an even more challenging year for our “systems”.  Keep your thoughts focused on what you want and how you want to feel through any changes.

Whichever Dimension you find yourself in, remember, You Create.  Yes, you attract, but more than that, You Create.  Monitor your thoughts carefully, because it is your thoughts that create your reality.   Allow yourself to DREAM, and DREAM BIG.  Focus ONLY on what it is that you want, and you will find that things come flying into your life, as if like magic.

Love, and Happy New Year,

Tamara

 

 

Have you forgotten how to dream?

The ONLY time we forget how to dream, is if we do not think our dreams can come true.

There is nothing that we can have in this life that did not start with a thought, a Dream. Our thoughts are energy, and are very powerful. Whatever you think about you create.

It is very important to Dream, to imagine what you want in your life. The sad thing is, many of you have forgotten HOW to dream. So many things have happened over the course of your life that you think have happened TO you. If you can see how you helped to create them, then you will see that you are very powerful indeed. You will realize that you have what it takes to allow yourself to dream differently.

If your Dreams have turned into Nightmares, the following steps can help turn your life around.

Forget everything that has happened up to this point
There is no sense re-hashing all that happened to get you to where you are. Acknowledge that you are where you are because in some way you created it. You got here based on decisions that you made, and actions that you did or did not take. Once you take 100% responsibility for being where you are, you can begin to look forward instead of back.
An affirmation of “I created where I am, I can create where I want to be” may help.

Stop saying you can’t change
This is your ego talking. Of course you can change. You are never too old, too sick, or too stuck. You may not be able to change people or things around you, but you can change YOU. “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

Forget everything you have been taught
Often, our parents didn’t know how to consciously create their lives, they lived in a different dimension than we are living in now. In the past there was not the awareness that we have available to us now. They may have told us that dreaming was a bad thing, we had to “live in reality”. Things are different now, and “Reality” is whatever you want it to be. Living someone else’s “reality” can keep you very stuck.
School doesn’t teach this stuff either. Many of us learned the opposite in school. Go to school, get a job, have a family, be stuck in the cycle. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Stop making excuses
We could all come up with excuses why something won’t work. No matter what the situation, you can create an excuse for anything. If you cannot give up your excuses, you cannot allow yourself to Dream. If you are in the habit of making excuses, every time you start to dream, you will automatically, from habit, come up with an excuse why it won’t work. This will stop you before you even get started.

Stop blaming other people
Yes, it can be really hard to stay positive and look forward if you are living with someone who is very negative. BUT, you are responsible for where you are, and you and only you are responsible for who you let into your life. If you say you can’t get out of your situation, then you are making excuses. Take all of these steps together and use them to remove negative people from your life. Or remove your life from negative people. You are a powerful creator, if you can dream it, you can do it. Start imagining a life without them, instead of always thinking about your life with them.

Be willing to give up what you have
This can be the hardest one. Change is change. If you want things in your life to change, you have to change things in your life. If you are unwilling to give up your home, you cannot have a new home.
If you are unwilling to give up your relationship, you cannot have a new relationship. Sometimes you MUST give something up. Too often, you think “I worked so hard to get this, I can’t let it go now”. Unless you are 100% happy where you are, there will be something you have to give up to get what you want.
I guarantee you, that if you are stuck with trying to hang on to what you have, you will never be able to create new. All of your focus and energy will go to hanging on to what you have.
This does not always mean that you HAVE to give something up. However, you must be 100% WILLING to give it up. A closed fist cannot receive.

If you are so hell bent on hanging on to what you have, and are unwilling to let go, that is where your thoughts, and therefore your energy will go. You will continue to get even MORE of what you already have. In order to dream, you need to be able to look forward. To trust the universe will give you what you need. When your whole focus is on WHAT IS, you cannot possibly be dreaming about what COULD BE.

Stop focusing on the HOW of what will happen
You need to be able to see your dream, trust that it can/will manifest for your highest and best good, and then LET IT GO. Too often, you have a dream, and then you start to wonder “How can that happen? I’d have to win the lottery or something.” This thinking will get you nowhere. It is NOT up to you to know HOW it will happen. It is just up to you to Dream about it happening. To believe it CAN happen. You created what you have. You CAN create what you want.

Take some ACTION
This is the most important step. If you allow for the things already discussed this will be easy, you will feel inspired and your energy will flow in the direction you want to go. If you haven’t allowed yourself to do the above, it will feel down right impossible to do.
If you say “I can’t”, or “It’s not my fault”, or “I’m not giving that up” you are speaking from your ego, and there is no way to create a better situation from there.
If you say those things to yourself, you will never take any action. Why would you? After all, you have convinced yourself that ‘you can’t’.
Action doesn’t always need to be big action either. No matter where you are, spiritually, physically, emotionally, if you allow yourself to dream, where you want to be is always somewhere else. Taking action, simply means taking a step in the direction that you want to go. Even just reading this blog post over and over, and being willing to think differently can be a first step. Praying for help can be a first step. In the past I myself have prayed “help me be willing to change or see things in a new way”.
YOU WILL NOT GET FROM HERE TO THERE WITHOUT TAKING A STEP.

You cannot just meditate and affirm your way to a new life. It can help for sure, but it won’t magically create something for you if you won’t change anything or take a single step. There is not one successful person on the planet that got that way by ONLY meditating, dreaming or thinking. Every single one of them took some form of action to get them where they are.

With dreams it is important to realize that they happen over time. You are not going to just wake up one day and be living a different life if you have not allowed yourself to have a different thought first.

Are You Just Faking It?

Are you being honest with yourself? Are you being true to yourself? I mean really really honest?

As much as the energy has shifted yet again in the past few weeks and many of you are moving forward with your lives and new experiences, a lot of people are still feeling stuck in so many areas. You may be pretending that everything is okay, but deep inside things just don’t feel right. If you are feeling stuck, even a little bit, then please read on.

You are feeling stuck because you are not trusting your intuition. You likely have had some really good ideas, and really good fantasies about what you want your life to look like. The thing is, you are not acting on any of it. You are stuck in fear. You may post inspirational things on facebook, or tell your friends that life is great, but you don’t really FEEL it.

You think that ‘fake it till you make it’ works. In some cases it does, but only if it is followed by good feelings and some action. If you constantly focus on what is not in your life, and you keep doing the same things (actions), every day, then you aren’t really faking it till you make it anyway. You are just faking it. Every time you post something positive on social media, if you cannot bring yourself to believe it, you are actually sabotaging yourself. You post it, then think “if only this was real and I really felt this way”. By doing it that way, you are basically affirming that you are not there yet.

There is zero point to posting something positive if you feel negative, or being ‘fake’ online and pretending to be something you are not. It creates distance between you and others, and can also create a distance between you and your own higher self. Not saying that if you are having a negative emotion or experience that you need to wallow in it, or focus on it (unless that is what you chose to do – sometimes acknowledging it can help clear it). How about focusing on feeling a little better. There is nothing wrong with saying “I feel like crap, but I know it will pass”. There is nothing wrong with asking for help if you need it. The only error is in being UNTRUE. You feel the discord of the untruth within you. Those you come into contact with can feel the untruth. Not being true to yourself just creates that much more distance between what you want and what you have.

You need an affirmation you can believe. If you just fake it, then the energy behind it will hinder not help you. You need to come up with things that you can believe. It is better to start small with something you can believe, than to start with big things that have you affirming backwards. “I know one day I will feel better”. “My life has always been my CHOICE, I take responsibility for that, and know I can change it”. “If things are not as I want them to be, it is up to me to change them, God, please help me feel better so I can make these changes, even little ones”. These are all things you could say to yourself to get yourself to where you want to be.

It is time to let yourself be. Be you. Make changes, make moves, get rid of old stuff that is no longer serving your highest and best good. Sometimes you can’t tell if you are just dreaming or if maybe it really is doable. This is where trusting your intuition comes in. You need to be able to discern what is really being shared with you via Universal Energy. If you have a dream, and it won’t go away, and the dream feels good, chances are it is a really good first step for you.

There are no 100% guarantees in life, except that if you do not consciously make a change, then either nothing will change, or things will change in a way that you do not want them to. You have ultimate control over what happens to you and how you deal with it. Don’t let fear stop you. You made it this far. You have had other changes in your life that were likely scary and you made it through. Be true to yourself, stop faking life and start living it.

Do you trust your path?

I went for a walk at the river today to clear my head and my energy. The path at the river is wide, reasonably flat and has no obstructions and is a wonderful place to spend some time.

Things are changing. A lot of us can feel it. We don’t know exactly what the changes will be, part of that will have to do with the energy of the collective on our planet, but change is here for sure.

As I was walking, I realized how much the path at the river was like the path of our lives. All we have to do is keep putting one foot in front of the other, and we will get where we are going.
Not that I was walking TO something at all. I was just walking. Enjoying the sounds, the sights, the smells, saying good morning to others’ on the trail. Smiling at the adults, the kids, the dogs. The purpose of my walk was to BE ON THE PATH. Not to do anything in particular or to get somewhere in particular. I needed to focus on being in my moment. I picked up a mantra that all was well, I walk forward freely through my life. Change is good. I don’t need to know specifically what the change is. It will be good and work out in the end, no matter what it is.

This started me thinking about trust. Trusting our path, trusting that we are right where we need to be. I decided to try an experiment. I put myself smack dab in the middle of the path and closed my eyes. I kept walking. I only made it about 6 steps and got nervous and opened my eyes again. I kept doing this over and over again. The farthest I got with my eyes closed was 50 steps. It was really hard to trust my path for that long without wanting to stop, or look around, or open my eyes. It was an exercise in trust though so I did it over and over again.

On average, I only made it about 12-18 steps without opening my eyes, if even for a second. Two times I inadvertently went off into the bushes on my left. At that point of going into the bushes, I felt something that I did not want, the ground was softer, branches touched my legs. I simply opened my eyes for a few moments, got myself back on my path, closed my eyes again and continued on my path. I did this over and over for about 2 km of my 6 km walk. Closing my eyes, trusting the path, and every now and then, pausing for just a millisecond to open my eyes and make sure I was still where I needed to be.

When I heard someone coming, either in front of me, or behind, I would open my eyes long enough that my path did not run me straight into someone else’s path, and then my eyes would close again. My lesson in trusting my path. At one point, a fellow walking faster than me came up from behind. He was walking to the left of the path and I was on the right. I thought to myself, if I close my eyes and kind of follow him, I will hear his footsteps and I will know where I am on my path, because I can follow his sound. He will be up and to my left.

I didn’t close my eyes at that point, not because I did not trust my path, but because I did not know for sure what his was. Within 10 seconds of him passing me, he actually moved over to the path in front of me. If I had closed my eyes and followed his path by sound (thinking he would stay on my left and just in front of me), I likely would have walked right into the river.
You see, he was on his path, and I was on mine. If I had tried to follow him, it would have put me right off of my path.

Life is like this. Our path’s are like this. Your path is your path. You need to trust it. You don’t always need to see it. Sometimes you can just close your eyes and know that you are on it. If you need some assurance you are still on your correct path, just open your eyes for a moment, take a quick look around. You will see that yes, you are still on your path, you can redirect a little or a lot, but then you need to carry on and trust that you are right where you need to be.

Success & Life Purpose

Are you searching for what your life purpose might be? I have a secret for you. If you are happy you are living your purpose. If you are unhappy you are not living your purpose. It really is that easy.

You have come to earth to have a loving and joyous experience. If you are not, then you are not living your purpose.

Are you successful? It mostly depends on what success means to you. Some people only define success with money. Success only means monetary gains if that is how you define it.

According to the Dictionary, Success Means:

1.The accomplishment of an aim or purpose.
2.The attainment of popularity or profit.

If you are happy where you are, and with what you have, you are successful.

If you find yourself saying “I am happy, but….”, then chances are that you are not living your purpose, nor are you successful.

You are either happy or you are not. There is nothing wrong with wanting more out of life. More purpose, more success. The problems only show up when you are not happy with what you do have.

Some people think that to have a ‘good purpose’ they must be serving others. This is a fallacy. If you serve others, and are unhappy about it, then you are not living your purpose. If you are happy, and are not serving others, then you are living your purpose.

You cannot be of any service to others if you are unhappy. If you are happy, and joyful, and spreading positive love & light energy, you will be serving everyone you come into contact with anyway.

Don’t mistake service with martyrdom. There is nothing that you must ‘give up’ in order to make the world a better place, NOTHING. Just by being you, and by being happy and loving, you are living your purpose and you are successful.

That’s it.

Is it Fate?

You chose your life before you were born. You picked your parents, where you were going to be born, what work you were going to do and who you were going to try and get together with while you are here.

Imagine, being in “Heaven”, and planning out your life. These plans are held in what many call the Akashic Records. In these plans (Records) you have accounted for everything you could imagine at the time. You decided who you would like to meet, what you would like to do. You allowed for the fact that, based on your decisions on earth, you may need more than one opportunity to accomplish something you feel is important.

If there is a Soul Friend that you want to meet up with, you may have poured over the plans with them saying, “Okay, if I make choice A, I will be able to meet you at this point in my life”, if I make choice B, then I won’t meet you until 6 years after that, and “choice C, D, E etc.” You have planned for everything that you could possibly think of. You also left yourself the option to create things as you go along.

You didn’t want to be so rigid with your planning that if an opportunity came up you wouldn’t be able to experience it if you wanted to. You created your records before you were born, you changed them over and over, you said ‘what if’, you gave yourself many options. YOU did it. You planned it, you created it. YOU put into your records what YOU wanted.

You also realized that we live in an ever-expanding Universe and that as you had experiences in your life, you might want to add even more things, or take some experiences out of your Records.

You may have written into your Akashic Records that you wanted to experience awareness while you were here. You decided that at some point in your life, you would ‘get it’, understand that we are all one, that LOVE is what counts and that you would be happy and content. You give yourself many opportunities to do this. You may meet up with a family friend as a child that can help you with this. You make a decision (either with awareness, or lack of action) and you do not end up ‘getting it’. Then in high school there is another opportunity to wake up, and you do not take it. Then at your place of employment in your 20′s, and STILL you chose to ignore the opportunity. Then you have a family, one of your children brings in some LOVE to try and teach you that there is more to life than what you thought and again you ignore what is right in front of you.

You go through your life, being completely unaware, ignoring all the signs and signals that have been trying to point you in the direction that your Higher Self wants you to go. To focus on love and light and our connection to Source and each other. Until finally… you wind up with a HUGE crisis. A divorce, a health challenge, the death of a loved one, a near death experience. Something, that FINALLY helps you to WAKE UP, and to realize that there is more to this life experience than what you have been trying to hold onto all these years.

Now here is the really neat part. Just because you are in a human body, does not mean that you cannot ‘tweak’ your Records now. Imagine that. Being able to create the life that you want. Not many people believe that you can change your Akashic Records. You may think that it is something outside of yourself, FATE, if you will, that planned the records for you. It wasn’t ‘fate’; it was you.

In order to change and experience the life you want you require a certain amount of awareness. You need to have a conscious connection to your Higher Self, and a conscious connection to Source Energy. Or alternatively, you can talk to someone who can read your records and/or connect to your Higher Self with or for you. You need to believe and know that you are the creator of your Akashic Records and your life, therefore you can be the re-creator of your records and the re-creator of your life.

You do NOT necessarily require a crisis in your life. All you need is to be AWARE of what is going on around and within you, so you can take advantage of the opportunities in the easiest possible way to accomplish what is important to you on a Soul level.

Some of you may want to know where your gifts lie. Your records may tell you that you are ‘meant to be’ a healer. Being a healer might not resonate with you, because when you think of it, you think that a healer is a doctor, nurse, or Reiki Practitioner. You don’t want to be any of these things. Finding out that your Higher Self chose to ‘heal’ while here might feel disappointing to you.

Here’s some more good news. Just because you have a gift of being a healer, it does not mean that you need to have any ‘certain career’. There are many healers that work in manufacturing or as accountants, or some other career that pays the bills. Because they have a gift of being a ‘healer’, they often help people heal aspects of their lives without even knowing it. Just by talking, or by listening, or by being kind, or loving or buying organic, or having enough money that you are able to share financially with others. On the surface, to our Third Dimensional vision and way of being, it may appear that no healing is going on at all during these interactions. But on a higher dimensional level, and on an energetic level, those “healers”, ARE healing people on our planet.

You don’t always SEE your impact. But whether you see it or not, you are impacting everything around you in some way all the time.

You created it before you came here to this dimension, you can re-create it at any time. We NEVER fail on our path.

You Feeling Badly Doesn’t Help Anyone

Feeling crappy doesn’t help anyone

If you can help, then help.  If you cannot help, then at least work on raising your vibration and feeling better. We are all one.  If you feel bad, it DOES impact the entire planet on some level.  You need to be as happy, positive and grateful as you can in any given moment. Your sadness will not aid the planet.  You being poor will not feed the hungry.  What you have does not DETRACT from anything anyone else has.  You having MORE and being happier actually helps. You being healthy does not make someone else sick.  You being well fed does not take food out of someone else’s mouth.  You being happy does not make another sad.  You being stuck and disempowering yourself will not help others to rise up.

No one else can take your power.  Only you can give it away.  You may say “yes, but the government, or my husband, or my parents, the banking system…..”  the list goes on and on for who you can blame.  I stand by the statement that only YOU can GIVE your power.  NO ONE can take it.  Ever heard the phrase “You reap what you sow”?  What you think is what you feel, what you feel is what you vibrate.  If you are constantly blaming and disempowering yourself, then you are indeed reaping what you have sown.  The really good news is that you can change it.  You can change your thoughts.  I understand how hard it can seem to shut down your mind ~ so many things to do…  however, all it takes is a few minutes.  Just sit, just BE.  Take some really big (and I mean BIG) deep breaths and focus on your body and your breathing, think only of them.  You cannot have more than one thought in any millisecond.  If you are focused on your breathing and/or your body, you cannot possibly be focused on something else.  If you find your mind wandering, that’s okay, just bring it back.

In order to get more of what you want, you need to feel good.  Did I say that already?  I will say it again and again and again because it is the truth.  We all know those people who say “Oh, bad stuff always happens to me”, or we stub our toe in the morning and say “It’s going to be one of those days”, and then we spill our coffee, are late for work etc.  YOU are creating that.  What if when you stubbed your toe, you allowed the experience to bring you back into your body, your awareness.  What were you thinking about at the time?  Your higher self is trying to tell you something.  Don’t let it snowball into a bad day.  Become aware of whatever you were thinking and change your thoughts, your feelings, the energy behind it.  There are so many opportunities that show up for us to remind us to be present, be aware.  We’ve been rather programmed to be on auto-pilot.  Take every opportunity you can to feel good. “Thank you for me stubbing my toe.  It reminds me to BE”.  Just a simple switch of perspective WILL change your whole day.

I talk to so many people that are broke.  They say, “I don’t want money, I just want to be happy”.  I want to help people, I want to do this or that, I wish I could afford to talk to you.  All in the same sentence. It makes no sense.  At the moment, we live in a system that involves money.  If you had more money, you would be able to help more people.  If you are broke and feeling badly, then who exactly are you helping?  Keeping yourself down, or feeling “less than” isn’t helping anyone.  Shine your light, speak your truth.

I also talk to a lot of people who want a relationship.  When I’m connected with their energy, I can feel where they are vibrating.  So many say “I want a relationship”, yet their vibration is one of lack, of dissatisfaction, of living in the past, of loneliness. You CANNOT attract a positive relationship from this state.  Sometimes people who are vibrating low like this ask me “When will I meet someone”.  The type of answer I get is always different for each person, but it is similar.  You can potentially meet ‘someone’ quite quickly.  The message I get behind it, the message that I share, 97% of the time with this vibration is; “if you work on clearing _____ (usually, but not always it’s a past relationship with either an SO or family member), if you step into ______ part of your being, if you adjust your thoughts (and therefore vibration) to ______, then you will be able to meet a person that you can be happy and grow with.

At this point, you create your own future.  You can work on what your guides and Source has shared with you, or you can say Tamara is full of sh*t, and go on your way, and get into a relationship that is just as crappy as the last one you had. The choice is so very much yours.

You can have what you want.  You staying stuck in your lower vibration, and hooking up with someone who is vibrating at a low place won’t help you, it won’t help them.  You being UNHAPPY in a relationship WILL NOT make the other person happier.  Don’t give away your power to someone who does not want your “help”.
