Day 2 of 21 Days of Yoga - Goddess Style. I have completed 30 minutes of Kundalini Yoga, a 5 minute session of Bandha instruction, and an 8 minute Flow Light practice. Will probably do a 50 minute session of more Kundalini later. I am feeling so light, pain free (I have Fibromyalgia), and energized. Blocks are lifting. I cried a little during the Bandhas. So grateful for this life! Check in and share your experiences below. I love You all. ♥
Wishcasting Wednesday: What Do You Wish to Reflect On?
On this lovely Wishcasting Wednesday, I wish to reflect on how very far I have come. I cannot believe how different I am in my responses and thoughts as compared to last year, or even last week, or yesterday. Seven years ago I was still in the process of healing from an abusive relationship. I do not even recognize that girl – I just send her hugs for the lessons she taught me.
Every single time that I take my negative thoughts and fears, release them, and reformat them, I take an even bigger step than the last one I took in order to bring myself into alignment with what I want, need, and wish for. I also spend less time thinking of and dwelling on what I want; I notice a distinct difference in my levels of gratitude. I truly appreciate what I have, and it makes me appreciate what is to come. I know things are only getting better. This is so exciting! I am also reflecting on how very appreciative I am of my clients, and the beautiful steps that they are all taking. It is a glorious journey that we are all on. What a ride!

What step do you wish to take?
My wish this Wishcasting Wednesday is simple:
I wish to take the next step for my social life. I am blessed to be able to stay home and develop my infant business; however, it also means that I do not get out much. In the summer, with the kids home, I get out even less. We have one car, and my partner usually drives it to work unless I or the kids have an appointment or specific errands. I need to make the effort to get out and hang with a friend or two at least a couple of times per month. I also have some great new networking opportunities lined up with fellow lightworkers and business Woo-Woo gurus. But, if I tell the truth, my childhood shyness and my empathic sensitivities are peeking out. I know once I get there, I will have a great time. I know that I will probably make some pretty sweet connections. I just have to do it.
I would like to be as candid with my readers and clients as I can, while maintaining proper boundaries. This is why I am sharing with you that yes, I am still shy sometimes. Yes, I still get scared that I will not be good enough or that “They won't like me.” But, you know what? That ends now! I am always good enough, and I am freaking lovable! And should I ever doubt, I will remind myself I AM ALWAYS MYSELF, THE REAL ME. I AM ALWAYS A GODDESS!

Multiple cards (by myself and others that I watch on YouTube) were pulled today involving the completion of laying and cementing the foundations to our dreams and the plans and measures we have been taking to further our careers and our life purposes. There were also cards pulled several times about abundance and love.
My take on all of this and what I scribbled in my Hello Kitty book as I channeled:
I was feeling a little “unsexy” and having some doubts about things that I don't often doubt anymore this morning. The above cards and messages showed up numerous times as I began my meditations and writing affirmations to turn my frown upside down. One thing that I was told to do was to not only begin my day with a smile, but to really make it a habit to smile at everyone I meet, every single day. This means at family that I see every day as well. I struggle with this type of thing as I am an empath (generally with the public), thus I am highly sensitive to the environment and the people around me and all of the energies that that encompasses. It was only last year (I will be 39 in December – Goddess!) that I learned about and refined my own habits and techniques for keeping out other people's crud. I do not ignore people, and I am not impolite, but I definitely shield myself. How can I do that and smile at every one of them? Well, I am going to do it. I think of how often another's smile helped to change my mindset, especially when I was struggling with many issues and depression. Maybe you can join me for some extra strength energy and we can spread smiles all around?
Trust and love and abundance – The message sent is to remind us that we need to trust, always we need to trust. The love cards, messages, and channel pictures that I saw instructed us to really open our hearts. Does this mean in romance (whether you have a partner or not)? Yes, but it also means in all of our relationships, even work and career. If you are partnered, renew your commitments. Flash that smile that you have been practicing at your honey like you have just seen him/her for the first time again. If you are not partnered, perhaps your twin flame will be drawn to you because you are practicing that great, loving, inviting smile. Love your work partners and your work. Open your heart to being more grounded and lovingly approach your work. Hate your job? Open your heart to receiving guidance towards your true calling. Abundance is already here. Remember my Full Moon channels about this. Look around, open your heart and love to receive all that is good. Acknowledge the abundance that is already there in your life, right now.
Loud and clear: “This is a time for huge shifts and tremendous manifestation. Only speak and think that which you wish TO BE, that wish you wish to make happen.”
I am going to share (some of) the affirmations I wrote for myself before, during, and after this channeling. Feel free to use them in your own journal, and I hope you are inspired to make more:
I am helping people to live their dreams, grow, release hurts, improve, love, and laugh!
I have an infinite flow of abundance and income where my needs and those of my family are continuously met.
I have an open mind and an open heart that flows, gives, and receives love continuously.
I make my family feel loved and comforted.
I am connected with and share with those who can help me in business, and I in turn can help them.
I am continuously connected to Spirit, my Guides, and the Divine Source.
I AM ALWAYS MYSELF, THE REAL ME. I AM ALWAYS A GODDESS! (guys can of course, change the goddess part if they like!)
Today we are going to learn about Pan, who is also sometimes called Cernunnos, the Horned God, the Green Man, Dionysus, and other names. Pan has been a patron god of mine since before I knew what that was, and I do not even recall how I first learned of him. Join me as we pay tribute to this ancient, woodsy, fun-loving satyr god of the deepest forests, shepherds, and music.
Channel through Pan, composed at 12:59pm 9/03/12:
How soon I saw you,
It seemed too long, my breath steaming in the warm night.
Magic loomed in every shadow,
and the burgundy wine in tune with your pipes. We danced slowly, whirling into the night.
Thy wooded bliss, horns and hooves among the nymphs.
Thy Forest blanketed in greens, blues and Browns.
How I waited anxiously!
I was Nyx and you were Pan. ~
Jennifer Leigh Scott
Remember that Pan has often literally been demonized over the centuries, and many attempt to pin Satan and demons on him. Pan is not bad or evil. However, he does represent some of the dark elements in all of us. We are all made of parts light and dark, and there should be no guilt or shame in that. Dark does not inherently translate to evil. There must be balance, equal exchange, male and female, yin and yang.
Pan is very fond of having a good time and participating in revelry with friends and loved ones. He loves music, and he is often the composer, director, and musician all rolled into one. He is known to frolic with woodland nymphs, fairies, elves, and all creatures of the forest and mossy places. He enjoys earthy foods, meads, and wines. I believe that Pan invites all of us to explore the hidden parts of ourselves - the parts that we wish we could just allow to be and express, but often feel intimidated by what others will think. Shine that light, dance in the dark, and enjoy the music of life. Io Pan!
