Actually, we need both ha ha. The mind is obviously useful. Just not when it gets wrapped up in the painful, false stories we tell ourselves (You know the ones of which I speak: “He’s better than me”, “I’m not good enough”, “I have nothing to offer that’s not already out there”, “it’s not safe to get close to people”, “I’m too fat”, “I’m too thin”, “I fill-in-the-blank too much”, “I always screw it up”, “love hurts”, etc).crossroadspharm.com
It’s all all useful bullshit. Yes. Useful. Because in those stories is a trail to your Truth 🙂 The great thing about the intellect is… you can also use it search; to find Truth; to direct yourself to connect to the greatest parts of You; to Self-discover; to become aware; to discover the gold in your experiences (no matter how good or shitty they seem); to make plans and to motivate you into action toward what you want to manifest; to move you toward what you want and deserve.
And the even more cool thing about the intellect? Is you can allow your #heart or #spirit or your #higherself or #divine to use it to create, inspire, and empower.

I got a dose of dragonfly medicine yesterday as I captured this magical dragonfly pic. It lew past me and off in the distance. I asked it to come back so I could take a pic, then it flew right over me and allowed me to capture this beautiful pic.
Dragonfly represents transcendence, transformation, change, truth, reflections, mirrors for internal growth, mastering your emotions, mastering your thoughts, transcending limiting belief patterns, being an overcomer, and the realization that things are not always as they seem. It represents breaking down illusions and an integration and balance of the mental and emotional bodies. It can also mean seeing a situation for the truth of what it really is/means in your life. With the dragonfly comes wisdom and enlightenment.
You will know the dragonfly is here to assist you because you will FEEL it. They may show up in your dreams; suddenly appear from nowhere; appear in your experience in multitudes; land on you; buzz around you; or, like me, you have communications with it and it honors your requests. Most of all, the experience will come with a knowing that you are being “spoken to”. Follow it and don’t doubt yourself or your signs from from your Higher Power.
Anytime a symbol comes at you three times in a short time frame (for me it’s typically within a week or less), then the Universe or your Higher Self is trying to get your attention. If so, you are being asked to wake up and search or inquire within about the meaning it has for you and your life. The closer together (in time frame) the symbol comes, the stronger the message from spirit is. Some call this synchronicity and it’s a powerful way to communicate with divine (Spirit or your Higher Self; the Universe; All That Is; your Higher Power; or what ever your idea of divine is)
In this instance, the dragonfly delivered the *exact* message I needed in regard to an inner conflict I’ve been having about a recent falling out with someone I love, care about, and miss dearly. I’m grateful for the ways Spirit communicates with me through my environment.
Have you noticed any symbol, animal, or message coming into your experience lately? What does it mean to you? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
Wishing you a day filled with magic and synchronicity.
This morning, after I just got back from an 11-day trip out of town, I
got into my car and turned the key. Errrr.. Ergh. It wouldn’t start. I looked up and realized my dome light had been on all this time, so I turned it off. Bummer. Or not!
Finally, after about five minutes of turning the key to no avail, I changed it up and tried a different strategy. I said a little prayer, then I envisioned golden-white light pouring into my car’s battery and flowing out into the engine of the car. After a deep exhale, I turned the key again. Errrr.. chck chk chk… ergh. No dice… but!! I did hear a promising chk chk chk in-between the errrr! So, I tried again.
I envisioned even more golden-white light pouring into my car’s battery, filling it to the brim and overflowing out through the attached cables and throughout the cars engine. Once again, I turned the key. Chk chk chk chk VROOOM!!!!!! She started right up! And off I went on a journey!
Coincidence? Ha ha ha! I call miracle!
Blessings, Love and Light!
“I was emotionally messed up and, truth is, I hated myself….”
I was nominated by a few people on Facebook to share some pictures of me that make me feel beautiful. I’m posting them here, because I want to also share why they make me feel beautiful, in hopes of inspiring others: 1. I was very, very sick… and also very wounded inside. I was emotionally messed up and, truth is, I hated myself. I had so many » Read more..
It’s just amazing to see how the divine manifests in our life. I’m in a hotel in Chennai, feeling a bit nervous as I prepare for my flight home to the United States (after having been gone to India for a year). I’ve been in this room for two days, yet it wasn’t until just this morning that I noticed my divine showing up on the shelf in the room. Do you see it? On the bottom left side of the shelf below the television?
Here it is, close up. How does one explain that?!
If you haven’t read my post about God’s Love Bug, it explains a little more about the hearts manifesting in our lives. You can read about it here. The divine manifesting in my room today is just another confirmation to me that I am not alone; that God is right there with me, supporting me, carrying me, and going before me. I love how the divine manifests in this way in the moments when I seemingly need this reminder the most. Thank you, God.

I am the world’s luckiest woman. My Love takes such good care of me. I am currently in an Ayurvedic clinic in India where most of the staff here do not speak very good English. My Love (an Indian Native) generally handles the communication with the staff. He recently left on a business trip, and before he left, he fetched a supply of water to last me until he returns, he told the nurses to take care of and watch over me while he is gone, and he pre-arranged for my breakfast to be delivered every morning (he takes care of that when he is here). He made sure I have everything I need and the day he left, he told me how beautiful I am, AND he gave me the most amazing massage after I told him my muscles were hurting. Wow. God must really love me, to bless me with such an amazing guy. Truly. So grateful. Thank you, God. He truly is exceptional. I’ve never met anyone like him. Next to God, he is my total best friend.
Listen, I haven’t always been so lucky in love. I’ve had my fair share of losers. (Okay. That’s probably an understatement lol). So, how did I end up with such a phenomenal guy? Well, in New Age speak, I ‘manifested’ him. In old school talk, I prayed for him and my ‘prayers were answered’. Which ever verbiage works for you, go with it!
You see, through the years, I’ve said many prayers for that right guy, and I had made many a list of exactly what I wanted in a man. Men would come into my life that would actually possess these very qualities I was hoping for, yet the relationships just didn’t work. So, what did I do different this time? It can be summed up into two words: Allow and Surrender. This time, I said my prayer and I surrendered the rest to the Universe, or my divine. After that, I just forgot about it and went on with life, with the faith that God would bring the right man into my life at precisely the right time for us both.
My prayer was also different. I didn’t ask for a man that has any specific quality, like being kind and caring and loving. I didn’t ask for a man that looked a certain way or had financial stability. I had already learned that asking for these things didn’t work. So this time, I simply surrendered it to my divine and asked for a man with pure intentions, the most beautiful heart; whom I have things in common with; who would have my best interest at heart and would be the perfect match for me Right Now. Then I left the rest up to God.
I didn’t stipulate that it needed to last forever either. Instead, I realized that God knows exactly what I need in my life right now and whether or not it is a relationship that’s here for a reason, a season, or a lifetime? Well, that’s really not my business until or unless it’s revealed to me. In other words, I gave up my crystal ball and simply left it all up to God.
It was shortly after that prayer that Terrance showed up in my life. I’m sure glad I left all the little details up to God, because Terrance has far exceeded all of my expectations of how a man could enrich my life. Had I tried to inject what I wanted into that prayer, I don’t think I would have someone as amazing as Terrance because, in my consciousness at that time in my life, I didn’t even realize men like Terrance existed outside of a fairytale. Thank GOD I didn’t limit myself!!
My point? Don’t pray for a man or woman that will do this or that for you. Don’t pray for a man or woman that looks a certain way. Don’t pray for a man or woman that has this quality or that quality. Don’t pray for a relationship that will last forever. Instead, pray for a man or woman that has pure intentions and a heart of gold. Pray for the man or woman that you can have fun with, who will make you feel like a goddess (or a stud), who understands the value of the human spirit and will have your best interest at heart. And then once you’ve said that prayer, surrender to the Current Moment; to Right Now, knowing that God or the Universe will deliver exactly who you need at exactly the precise timing that you need him or her – not a millisecond sooner or later.
Have faith, that if you are still single, there is a reason for that. And if you are tired of being alone, whose to say God isn’t spending this time forming and shaping and molding you into the person your ‘One’ is going to recognize and, if you met a minute too soon, maybe s/he wouldn’t recognize you at all?
Have faith, that if you lost a love, it wasn’t yours to keep. Whose to say God didn’t bring that person into your life to mold and form you into the person you are meant to be; the person your ‘One’ will be able to recognize? Perhaps the last love that you lost was brought into your life simply as a mirror to teach you about yourself. If you learned anything valuable or had any valuable experience from it, then there’s a lot to be grateful for… many spend a lifetime alone without ever experiencing romantic love at all. Many don’t even know what it feels like to know that someone’s got your back. If you do, get own on your knees and thank God for that.
Once you say your prayer, LET IT GO, with the FAITH that your divine is going to bring that right person at precisely the right time for you both and not a second sooner or later. If you’re constantly thinking about wanting a man or the fact that you don’t have a man (or woman), then guess what? That’s what you’re vibrating out to the Universe, and if you’re vibrating that out to the Universe, then that is what you are creating. So, instead, say your prayer and release it into the Universe (hand it over to God) and then surrender to God’s will in your life. In the meantime, move foreword spending the next however-long-it-takes working on YOU and finding out what makes YOU happy because by doing that, you are already getting one step closer to the love you deserve (and the love your One deserves to receive).
Everything happens in it’s own time. If it’s not happening, it’s not time yet. God doesn’t always give us what we want. God gives us what we WOULD want if we could see what God can see and if we knew what God knows.

It’s interesting… Because, up to this point, during my treatments at the Ayurvedic hospital, I’ve been chanting in my mind, “The Light & Love of God has cured me”. Then yesterday while I was chanting that I realized… If I’m still hanging on to the thought or vibration of needing to be cured, then that’s what I’m creating every single day… a version of me that still needs to be cured. I know I was saying “has cured me”.. but the truth is, if I were cured, I wouldn’t be thinking about being cured at all, I would just be living my life. So, I taught my doggy a new trick!
The next day, I changed my chant. At first, I started out with, “I am love”… and then I thought, “Why am I limiting myself by changing this to simply that I am love? What am I really?” Before, I was saying that the light of love of God has cured me, but then I realized that actually, I AM the light and love of God and when I vibrate THAT, then there is no such thing as anything that needs to be cured, because the light and love of God is pure and whole, just as it is.
So that became my new mantra during my sessions: “I am the Light and Love of God”. And that, my friends, is when I started to see some real change (okay, okay, there were some other energy techniques I employed that I feel played a role as well, but that’s for another day ha ha).
In what ways may your limiting beliefs be limiting your progress?
