8 Pieces to Positive Pie Consciousness

We invite into our lives what we are thinking about.  That’s the Law of Attraction in action.  So if you are thinking positive things, you attract them.  Yah but how do you prevent yourself from going down to the shadow side of yourself where dark thoughts lurk and negative thoughts bubble up?  Create a Positive Pie for yourself!


The Positive Pie is a Tool or Strategy to help you on your journey to shifting your thinking.  A friend taught me this some time ago as something she had read.  I’m sorry I don’t know the original source.  It certainly has helped me to reframe loads of stuff!


Step 1:  Draw 2 circles with a small circle in the middle and the larger circle outside … like a pie only a circle in the middle.


Step 2:  In the inner circle put the FEELING you want to manifest in your life. 


Step 3:  In the outer circle, divide it up into 8 pieces of the pie.  Depending on what I’m doing, I’ve created a template for an 8 piece pie.  I label each of the pieces 1 to 8. 


Step 4:  I then write in each piece where I already have that feeling I want to have pervade my life.  For me, feelings of contentedness and joy in being on my path was a huge destination.  That went in the smaller centre circle of my pie.


Step 5:  In each of the outer pieces I then jotted down WHEN, WHERE I already experience that feeling or that energy.  Whenever negative thoughts crept in, I grab my pie and read where in 8 different places I already know I have that positive energy.  It literally waters down the negative feeling since you KNOW you already are doing it. 


Step 6:  I then tell myself to STOP thinking in the negative and again reread where I already have this manifest in my life. 


Step 7:  It is when we focus our energy on the positive that we will bring more of the positive into our lives.  So I ensure that this feeling is something I have on my monthly vision board.


Step 8:  Reread affirmations you create for yourself around this feeling starting with the words, “I Intend”.  The word “intend” resonates at a higher energy frequency.


Step 9:  As much as is feasible or possible, tie your intentions to the energy of the day.  I write about the energy generated from both the movements of the Sun and the Moon on my astrology blog. 


Here’s a picture of your Positive Pie!  Mercury is retrograde and I’ve been trying to get the picture to insert for over half an hour.  You’ll have to go to my media for the picture, as I simply do not have any more time to devote to blog writing this morning.

Hugs and love from the Universe.

Pluto Shift and Crystal Healing Hearts

There is a shift in universal energy that all people are feeling.  Many are struggling with this shift in energy as their personal worlds and professional worlds are torn apart.  Astrologers will tell you it is primarily caused by Pluto entering Capricorn.  A new world is being born.  Pluto, god of the underworld is forcing all of us to face some of our deep rooted fears.  With some people the roof of the volcano is blowing off overnight.  In some cases they are losing secure jobs, homes, and their families seemingly in the blink of an eye.  In other cases the lava flow seeps slowly down through the things they value in their lives.  However when they look back over the past few months, the inevitable question is “what on earth happened to me?”   


There is a “secret” way to deal with this wisely and effectively.  Face your fear and flow with the energy.  Choose to do the inner transforming work on yourself.  The Pluto shift is demanding that you change things in your life that no longer hold true for you.  When you focus on fear energy or the things you worry about the most, then those situations will be brought into your life to give you the opportunity to grow.  Like a phoenix, you too will rise up from the ashes of your life a “richer”, and happier person. 


This can happen only if you allow yourself to let go of the things that no longer resonate in your own personal energy field.  In other words, get rid of your garbage collecting attitude.  Get rid of the garbage people who drag you down.  Time to take out the trash!  Once you clear your emotional house of the garbage, you can be changed.  Perhaps this is your opportunity to allow yourself to say “no” to certain things you have never liked, but were too afraid to address.  Perhaps this is your opportunity to  let negative people slip out of your life.  It is when you create space in your personal life by getting rid of the negative that you allow the positive to enter.  It’s in your power.  It’s in your control.  It totally is up to you.  What do you choose for your life?  Shift willingly and begin to grow towards the light energy!


Many people I deal with in spiritual counseling have asked for growth strategies to help them flow and move beyond their fears. One of the best and simplest I know of is changing the energy around you by carrying a Gratitude Rock.   I carry crystal rocks in the shape of a heart as my “gratitude rock” in my pocket all the time.  Usually these are amethyst or quart since that is what resonates with me.  Find what resonates with you.  It doesn’t have to be crystal.  Instead it can be a pebble that “speaks” to you when you are walking on one of your favorite paths through your Life’s Journey.


By carrying the Gratitude Rock with you, every time you touch it, stop for a brief moment and give thanks for the people and things you are grateful for in your life.  It is by focusing on the good things in our lives that we change the energy around ourselves.  It is by bringing to the conscious level that we are grateful that we attract more of those good things into our lives.  No it is not magic, it’s simply changing the energy around you from negative to positive.  When you touch the rock, use it as a visual reminder to choose the high road.  Use it as a reminder to get your ego out of the way and go with the flow.  Use it as a reminder to choose what is right for your soul.  Use it as a reminder that you are blessed with many wonderful things happening in your life.  By focusing on being grateful, the Universe brings you more things to be grateful for. 


My crystal rocks have all been cleansed and are surrounded with healing prayers of several healers.  Many people are brought to me who need emotional healing.  I generally give them one of these heart shaped crystals to carry with them the help remind them to shift their feelings and emotions.  Conscious shift has to happen before it can become a habit.  It takes 40 days to clear away old habitual thinking.  It takes another 40 days to create a new habitual way of thinking.  You truly will shift more quickly if you do this every day.  You also will shift more quickly if you begin this during the two weeks of the New Moon phase since that is the time of new growth.  The Full Moon phase is prime time for eradicating the garbage.  Full Moon is the ending of things. 


The Pluto shift is all about shifting our consciousness so that you can be the best person you came to this earth to be.  A revolution is happening.  Transformation and change is all around us.  Can you change?  Yes you can!  Be grateful.  Say a prayer of thanks. Let the Gratitude Rock help this to become part of your moment by moment life experience.  Believe in the magical energy of your world.  Many blessings!

Bullies and Alternative Healing

The biggest tournament of the year was about to happen and I called her into my office and told her she was not allowed to go.  She was devastated and of course went to her parents lamenting the fact that this was to be her last basketball game in that K-9 school and she was not allowed to attend.  Her mother was one of my favorite staff members.  Her father walked me “down the aisle” when we got married 5 years ago.  So I’m very close to the family.  This girl is like looking myself in the mirror at the same age since she is also a Taurus and born 2 days after me.  

New Beginnings

New Beginnings

The egg is a seed.  To me a seed stands for new beginnings of some kind.  In my last year of teaching and being school administrator, bullying was a real issue. The 14 year old star of our girls’ basketball team was being a bully.  Her coach complained about her behavior at practice.  Her teammates tearfully came to me for counseling when her comments ripped them to shreds emotionally. 






However, she had become a bully not only to her teammates and to her coach, but also to other kids in the school.  Understand this is a gal who is beautiful, smart and a leader.  But she had become full of herself and was arrogant.  I knew that somehow I had to nip this behavior in the bud or she would be horrid as an adult. 


Needless to say, her father called me at home that night saying his daughter was just sobbing her heart out and Daddy wanted to fix it for his eldest child.  I listened and told him I would deal with her in the morning, but made no promises.  On my 45 minute drive to school I prayed to God to give me a solution since it was beyond me.  Instantly the answer came to have the girl go and buy a dozen eggs before I did a counseling session with her on this issue. 


When she brought me the eggs, I had her write the names of each of her team mates on the each egg.  Then I had her write her coach’s’ and the names of her two sisters.  So now each egg had a name on it.  She picked up each egg in turn and told that person how she truly felt about them and what she cherished about them.

I then had her take each egg, one at a time and put it on the floor and stomp on it.  When she was through with all 12 eggs, I told her she had to pick up each individual egg and yolk and return it just the way she found it.  Of course this is impossible. 



I then told her that is what she does with each person she belittles and puts down.  She breaks their spirit with her words.  They are never returned whole in the same state at which she found them.  It mixes them up and they are shattered.  I asked her how she felt towards each of these people whom I know she loves.  When she told me she was devastated by her behavior, I then had her clean up her yellow yolky mess.  She then had to go and find each person whose name was on an egg and apologize to them for her behavior. She was to tell them how much she valued their friendship and how much she loved them.  Here was the condition.  If they accepted her apology with grace and forgiveness, she got to go to the tournament.  She was not to tell her friends that.  She was crying, I was crying for the soul of this young chick. 


It was a lesson well learned.  Yes, she got to go to the tournament.  When she went to high school, she became a phenomenal leader, with compassion and understanding.  Today, I’ve very proud of the young adult woman she has turned out to be.  She is a leader in her small community.  She is a valuable contributing member to her peers.  She even likes herself now and no longer feels the need to bully. 



You see, bullies are the most insecure people in the world.  When we confront them, it takes away their power.  If there is a bully in your life today, take the seed of this idea.  Create a new beginning for yourself and for your life.  Confront your fear and do not let them run over you.  Be an angel for your sake and theirs and confront them with their behavior.


Sometimes we have to use the seeds of tough love to have the result of a lovely caring and compassionate person.  Did I know how this was going to turn out?  Not at all.  But God gave me a clear message and I trusted that message.


Take the first step in faith.

You don’t have to see the whole staircase,

just take the first step.

(Martin Luther King Jr.)

7 Ways to Alternative Healing

Love Notes

Love Notes

There are diverse alternative ways to heal ourselves.  Healing the mind-body-spirit connection is one of the best ways I know of.  We have to go to the emotional root cause of why our body and soul are not healthy.  Many times we are heart and soul sick.  It manifests in our bodies as all sorts of dis-ease.  That is due to the fact that we are not emotionally at ease with what is happening in our lives.





A dear friend of mine has been dealing with some pain shooting down her leg for some months.  She was having some difficulty with her adult son.  Rather than stand her ground on some issues, she continually was caving into his demands for her financial support of his desire to live the good life.  Oh he has a job, but it was not enough to support his “wants”, just his needs. Rather than get a better paying job, or working two jobs for his wants, he continuously emotionally bombarded his mother until she gave into him and gave him money.  Once she began to firmly establish some boundaries around her own emotional needs, the pain went away.  She was firmly standing her ground and her legs were pain free. 

Coincidence?  I don’t think so! 



When the mother brought to her conscious level, what she was emotionally doing to herself, she used the Law of Attraction to begin attracting her different response to the emotional attacks from her son.  She began to recognize the pattern she had established when he was a young child.  She had given into his anger and his demands even then.  Many parents unwittingly do that, setting a pattern that will hold true for the family until the parents decide to change their response to it.  Remember, you can’t change anyone else’s behavior.  You can only change your own behavior and your own response to anything!




Caroline Myss in her book Invisible Acts of Power suggests there are 7 kinds of power we all possess.

  1.  Life is a Spiritual Journey.
  2. Your biology and your spirit want to serve.
  3. Intuition influences every choice you make in life.
  4. Your intuition and generosity evolve as your personal power evolves.
  5. Angels and grace are real.
  6. You are never alone.
  7. Everything you do matters.



When you choose to let your intuition be your guide, indeed when you choose to ask your higher power to walk by your side, you will never be alone.  Heal your soul.  Heal your heart.  Heal your mind.  When you have done these three things, your body will heal itself.  You have the power within you!



Reflection Questions

What in my soul needs to heal?

What in my heart needs to heal?

What in my mind needs to heal?

What in my body needs to heal?

What am I grateful?

Where can I find some “me pampering” time today?


Affirmation for your Vision Board:  I intend to heal myself beginning right now!  I heal my soul, my heart, my mind and my spirit.  I love each cell in my DNA.  Each cell in my body is healthy. 



Thanks to the human heart by which we live;

thanks to its tenderness,

its joys, and fears.

(William Wordsworth)
