Dec 2008 Newsletter

Hello everyone!

It was so wonderful writing the Monthly Vision for December. It nicely wrapped up so much of what 2008 has been about, and gives an exciting taste of what is to come in 2009!

"As 2008 draws to a close many of us will look back on it as the Year that Was. The year that was a turning point from our old reality to the new. The year that we finally let go of so many old beliefs and patterns that we'd been chipping away at for years (or lifetimes). The year that we stepped out from our fears and jumped into the beckoning unknown, because not jumping was becoming more uncomfortable than jumping." Read full Monthly Vision here:

I am off to Chile for Christmas, and very excited about it! It has been a dream of mine to get to South America for many years. I will still be doing Soul Sessions via Email, with about a 2 week wait over the festive season. Please book here if you'd like some guidance for the new year!: I am also still running my promotional campaign for A New Chapter over the holidays, which includes a 20% discount on my Soul Sessions, so you can access that offer here:

For Australian readers, the new issue of Empower Magazine (in which I'm a regular contributer) is now out. My article this month is about the Chakras! This magazine is filled with empowering articles and I read it from cover to cover. I especially recommend the one where you write in your journal as if it's 2 months from now, describing the improvements that have happened in a couple of life areas. It is truly magical and it works!! Pick up the latest issue in your local newsagency (with Natalie Bassingthwaite on the cover). More info here:

I wish you all a very happy festive season, and wonderful New Year. Thank you for all of your support this year!

Many blessings,

December 2008 - The Year that Was

December 2008 - The Year that Was

Dana Mrkich Monthly Visions

As 2008 draws to a close many of us will look back on it as the Year that Was. The year that was a turning point from our old reality to the new. The year that we finally let go of so many old beliefs and patterns that we’d been chipping away at for years (or lifetimes). The year that we stepped out from our fears and jumped into the beckoning unknown, because not jumping was becoming more uncomfortable than jumping.

It was the year that many of us finally realised that our higher self was not just a concept, but the higher version of who we really are, already existing right now in the higher dimensions, guiding us in every single moment, calling us constantly ‘this way this way’, holding the vision for us of our best possible selves and lives, and not giving one iota of notice to anything other than that. Our higher self WANTS us to be our best possible self, and live our best possible life, and it was the year to say “Enough! I am going to stop fighting my own best self and go with the flow already!!”

It was the year many of us decided to vote our ‘other self’ off the island, the part of us that voiced constant doubt, fear, ‘but how’, ‘what if’, ‘i can’t’, and other self-sabotaging concepts that will soon sound like the most crazy, foreign concepts ever to indulge in. Why would you indulge in thoughts and feelings that don’t FEEL good? Why did we? It doesn’t matter anymore, those days are falling fast behind us.

For many of us our faith in everything we have believed in was put to the test. So you think you create your own reality? You truly believe in the Law of Attraction? You really believe everything you need will come to you? Okay, then. Do you believe these things only when you have lots of money in the bank, a great job, a wonderful relationship and a beautiful home, or do you start panicking when things start going a little pear-shaped? Do you really believe in these things or do you still have old subconscious fears lurking that ask “What if the money runs out? What if I lose this great job/relationship?” This was the year to clear all the cobwebs to ensure that a) we always have all that we need and b) we know that we will always have everything we need and there is truly no such thing as abundance running out or losing anything you truly need.

A lot of people I know, myself included, have lived with the knowing for many, many years that the universe will always provide for us. We have visions about things we want to manifest and create and for the most part they eventually come to be. We may not always have a large amount of direct income from our work, but we are always financially supported usually in such generous ways, with unexpected sums of money coming to us when we most need it, or other forms of abundance coming in other ways, again when we need it. However, something unusual happened this year to a lot of people I know, myself included. The bank account went down, and it kept going down! Now usually this is no cause for concern because eventually once it hits a certain point something miraculous happens and up it goes again. But this time, it just kept plummeting!

Now, as many of you know, my partner Christian and I have decided to be nomads for a while. Technology has made it possible to live and work unattached to any one geographical location, so we are living the life of our dreams wherever we feel like. We have placed our trust and faith in our higher selves, knowing that they will never guide us astray. Financially we started with a healthy amount, but all of a sudden several things happened at once. The economy buckled, the Australian dollar and stock market crashed, and all of a sudden here we were in the US, with a one way ticket to Chile planning to travel through South America for a while with a bank account going south fast. We had a night of feeling like crap, before we picked ourselves up and made a decision. We either believe in what we believe in, all the way, or we might as well go home and say to everyone well we tried, but hey the law of attraction just didn’t work for us, at some point the luck’s gotta run out! Well there was no way we were going to do that, because we just didn’t believe that it does run out! (Although in our deep subconscious recesses maybe parts of us did fear this, and here was an opportunity to clear that out!!)

Sure, it may seem crazy to some people, to have a few hundred dollars in your account and a one way ticket to Chile, to just keep going, but that’s exactly what we decided to do! How could I ever write about this or speak about it or give sessions to people asking them to take leaps of faith unless I myself lived it and breathed it 100%? I have always lived it and breathed it, and to stop now, just because of a mere financial number in my bank account, just didn’t feel right. What is more real to me, a number in an account, or Spirit and the Universe and my higher self and guides? I had to keep going.

First thing, we had to make a total renewed commitment to high vibrating, postitive thoughts only! No more snippets of fear, doubt, worry or ‘but how, or ‘what if’s’. We had to make a total commitment to our higher selves and did a beautiful exercise on the California Coast, writing a send off to our old selves thanking them for serving us, but it was now time for us to align with our new, higher selves, fully and truly and wholly. We made promises to our higher selves, that we would no longer fight them, and instead surrender to them, allowing them to take us to all that we needed and deserved. It felt liberating!

From that moment there was a very real shift in the air. We just kept holding the picture of what we wanted – specifically to keep travelling, and we didn’t waver from that. Magic and miracles continued to unfold, just as they have been this whole trip, yet in an ever more amazing way. We came across the most luxurious hotel rooms for half the price we would usually pay for a standard one. We were invited to beautiful and inspiring events and places that helped keep our vibration high. Our bank account was still a little what the, but strangely looking at the number $100 felt like looking at $1000 or $100 000, the number was iirelevant, it was this overwhelming feeling of faith in abundance that prevailed. One day we went for a walk and saw the word Believe on someone’s roof, all decked out in Christmas lights. Later that day I opened a card in a gift shop, it lit up with coloured lights inside and said Believe. We walked through the mall a few minutes later and passed a woman with a huge red bag that said Believe. We got the message.

I got further messages during meditation and journalling, about the spiritual bank account that ALL of us have access to. It is limitless and will always provide you with all you need. It is real. I wrote a list of upcoming bills and expenses that would be coming up in the next week, and was very specific with what I needed money for and the amount needed. I didn’t come from a place of lack, I wrote the list as if it was a done deal eg I now withdraw $125 from my account for the internet, thank you Verizon so much for making it possible for us to have access to the world every day. I attached a feeling of deep gratitude and appreciation for everything I would be paying, as that’s how I truly feel about everything I give out money for. Once I’d written my list, it added up to quite a large amount, that we needed within the week. Something inside me just knew it would be okay, I had a sense of complete faith and calm and had done a very clear meditation giving myself to the keys to my spiritual bank. I recommend you do the same.

The day before we needed the money, we just affirmed that the money was coming. To do anything else would be to say ‘we don’t really believe’ and did we need any more signs that believing was the way to go! That evening we got an unexpected gift deposited into our bank account, a very generous ‘early’ Christmas present that was for the exact amount we needed. We hadn’t told anyone that we needed it, so it was truly for us a sign (yes another one) that Ask, Believe, Receive, is true is true is true. We continue to say thank you every morning and night (and countless times during the day) for all we have and all we desire for our future and I can't recommend this enough. We always ask that all things come in a good way, and I suggest you do too. (You have probably heard of stories like the man who asked for money and got a retrenchment pay out or the woman who asked for freedom and her husband left her - SO ask that what you ask for comes in a GOOD way!)

It is easy to believe in abundance when you have it, but it is truly a vibrational challenge to believe in it when physically your bank account is saying other things! I know that many people are in this ‘challenging’ situation this Christmas, but I invite you to take this challenge and turn it into an opportunity. Decide that you believe in Spirit and the Universe and your guides and higher self (and whoever else you believe in) MORE than you believe in numbers in an account. Visualise what you need. See yourself wrapping and giving presents. Feel yourself into joy and happiness, knowing everything will be okay. For the miracle can’t happen from a place of lack and fear, it just can’t. (In fact these kind of 'not feeling good' emotions are a good sign that you are not in that moment connected to what your higher self wants for you). Give yourself the keys to your spiritual bank account and align completely and wholly with your higher self. Say goodbye to your old self and old thoughts and fears, because they can’t work anymore with what you want in your new reality.

Many people have told us that we are lucky to be on this travelling adventure, and we are truly blessed. Yet we are not doing anything that you can’t be doing too. It is not everyone’s dream to live life in this nomadic way, but everyone does have a dream, so your job is to work out what yours is. Because 2009 is truly going to be the year where all our dreams can and will start coming true, and the only thing stopping anyone now will be their own old self. So leave your old self behind in 2008 (farewell them with much love) and give yourself permission to have a great life. To live your dreams, and be happy and prosperous and abundant and anything else you truly want.

Christian and I wish you all a very merry and happy festive season, and spectacular New Year! I am so looking forward to 2009, the freshness of the energy I am already starting to feel is amazing!

Until then,

Many blessings,

Anything is Possible - Yes We Can!

Anything is Possible – Yes We Can!

I am here in Seattle, USA and what a time to be here! I can hardly believe what is happening, even though I have imagined it, dreamt it, visioned it, been told by my inner knowing for my whole life that it would happen, still I feel I have woken up in the middle of my dream, only to find it is real after all. All I – and we – have ever imagined, visioned, felt to be true, hoped will be – is and will be, and in one night Obama with his win and his words has truly created a global energetic shift in consciousness, with everyone thinking the same thing: anything is possible!!!

All of us who have been awake and conscious of all that is going on around the world, knowing the unique potential and opportunity we have at this time to create a new world, have felt despair at times. Many have asked: will things ever shift in a positive direction on a mass, mainstream level? We have been told over and over again: not in our lifetime. I refused to believe this, and not just because of an inner knowing, but because the Earth and our old dysfunctional economic, environmental, social, political and health structures literally could not be sustained for much longer. We have been watching things collapse and crumble right before our eyes, and so it has not been a matter of whether things will shift, things are shifting, the question became, in which way will they shift? Which path will we as a people choose? The path of Destruction or Transformation? I believed the latter, I felt the latter, but I also knew it all depended on the outcome of last night’s election. After all, we as a humanity always have free will and choice, and the final decision would be made by the energy of the collective majority. What do the collective majority want? Are enough of us awake and conscious and ready for change? We dared to hope....but we couldn’t be sure....until now. Obama’s win last night answered our questions. If you have nearly given up, if you have been in any doubt, if you have let yourself slip into apathy – it is understandable. But it is time to get up! We have been given a second wind and new energy, and it’s time to get to work!

There is a wave of hope moving through the US today, and the world. Obama has instilled hope in all those who believed there was no hope left. He has given fresh energy to all those who have worked tirelessly for change for many years and were getting weary. He has shifted the global collective consciousness from fear, doubt and despair, to hope, faith and the feeling we have just entered the birth of a new world as we unite in the words: Anything Is Possible.

Yes it will take work. No it won't happen overnight. But it will happen. The people have spoken! They want change, they are ready for change, and they stood in the rain for three hours yesterday to say enough is enough! Yesterday as I watched them through the television screen, lining up in city after city, so determined to play their part in making a difference, knowing that this time it was different, knowing that the President they chose now will determine which way we go as a world over the next four years, I said thank you, and my heart was full of gratitude. Thank you to all those people, because the future of the world was quite literally in the hands of the US people yesterday. Climate change, the war in Iraq, global diplomacy and world peace, the economy, all of these issues that affect all humanity, regardless of the political party, race or country you belong to, can now be addressed in a positive way guided by an intelligent, visionary leader.

The media was on top of things this time. CNN had a voting hotline set up to call immediately if you encountered problems while trying to cast your vote. Nothing was going to stop the course of justice and the democratic process this time. Nothing will stop the will of the people this time. I wrote in my book A New Chapter that the only reason those in power have taken the world in a direction that isn’t serving us, is because on some level we let them. I wrote that it is time now to take our power back, and play our part in taking this world in a new direction, one based on unity and what is good for all, not good for some. Today we the people have taken back our power. We have said yes to playing our part in creating this new world, writing our page in our new chapter, making sure it is a fabulous new chapter, knowing your page counts! It is a good day.

Thank you Obama, you have come just in time.

“So today, I ask you to write our nation’s next great chapter. I ask you to believe – not just in my ability to bring about change, but in yours. ...You can choose hope over fear, unity over division, the promise of change over the status quo. If you give me your vote, we won’t just win this election – together, we will change this country and change the world.”
- Barack Obama, USA Today, November 4 2008

October Monthly Visions - Out with the Old..Thanks for the New

October Monthly Visions
Out with the Old...Thanks for the New

If you have felt like the world is on the brink of major collapse over the last couple of weeks, watching as the economy slides down faster than a building demolition with similar chaotic aftermath, you would be right. The good news is, just like any demolition, it is happening for a good reason, there is a great divine plan guiding the fall, and the construction crew for the new world being built in its place has already been hard at work for years.

Why do we demolish buildings? Safety is often a factor. The structure and foundation of the building can no longer support or sustain itself, putting all those people living or working inside it at risk. Outdated design is another factor. The old has to fall to make way for a more modern version, one that is more eco-friendly, with greater consideration to the health and wellbeing of its occupants.

So too, this is what’s happening to our world and right now we are well and truly living with two worlds overlapping – the old and the new. Some people are still stuck in the Old, scrambling to hold on to what has always been to them solid reality, even while it comes crashing down around them. Others have undergone their share of trials and tribulations and are safely in the New, setting up communities, businesses, schools, relationships, media and other systems that are in alignment with the higher vibration our Earth is rapidly moving into. Many have one foot in one reality, and one foot in the other, and this is the hardest place of all to be. They see the New in front of them, but keep glancing back at the Old, wondering which one is truly the ‘real’ world, wondering which will offer them the shelter and support they need with both worlds making promises of safe harbour. They are drawn to the New but are scared to take the leap into it as it requires letting go of so much that is known and familiar. Others desperately want the New but can’t quite work out the logistics of how to make the leap. Yet the leap will come, it has to. The bridge between worlds is getting shaky and we can all feel that we need to make a choice, fast.

If you need helping taking the leap, here’s mainly what you need: Trust that there are engineers of the highest calibre helping you through this transition. Know you will be okay even with no evidence. Have a vision of what you want your life and world to look like and believe it is there waiting for you, even if you have no idea how it will happen. Sounds too much like living in lala land? Well of course it does. We have been led to believe that reality is reality, and our dreams are just dreams. Guess what. Our reality has been a cloudy, foggy dream, and our dreams are like beacons of light guiding the way to our true reality. The ‘awakening’ that people refer to is the awakening from the foggy dream, awakening to who we really are, awakening to a greater reality than the one we have previously known.

Triggering this awakening is Earth’s shift into a higher vibration, and just like our move from analogue to digital television we can either shift with her or get left behind. Anything built on a non-sustainable foundation, out of harmony with the higher vibrations, will no longer work. The plugs are being pulled out of the walls and there is less and less energy every day available for them on this planet. Oil and water can’t mix, and we are quickly discovering which is which. What does this mean? The economic disaster we are currently seeing is a good example. Greed and corruption have been holding up our global economy, with giant financial institutions growing at the expense of the ordinary person and their family. The collapse of these institutions will increasingly expose all that has been hidden underneath their bulging carpets, and this is ultimately a good thing. Not great is the fact that millions of people are now facing losses of their homes, jobs and often relationships and health as the domino effect spirals into all life areas.

So does this mean the divine plan forgot to account for all the people who’d end up suffering as a result of this demolition process? No. It is simply a time when we all have to re-consider and re-view that which is important to us, and what we were having to do to get what we thought we needed. Is working 16 hours a day just to pay the interest on your mortgage really the best use of your time here on Earth? Is the excessive consumerism we in the Western world are accustomed to really worth the stress it is causing emotionally, socially and environmentally? These are the kinds of questions we are going to have to start asking ourselves.

I am all for abundance, but I don’t agree with some of the ideas being sprouted among some of the supposedly conscious community that suggest we are all meant to be driving Ferrari’s and sleeping on a bed of money. Abundance, as I feel it and live it, is knowing we are always taken care of and provided for. Abundance can come in the form of money, but it also comes in the form of a helping hand when you need it, kind words, a generous gift, a wonderful relationship, great health, living a life that feels good for you.

Appreciation creates Abundance. When you look at the world with new eyes and a new perspective, you automatically shift into the higher vibrations of the new reality, regardless of the figure in your bank account. When you say thank you for whatever you do have, be it a warm bed to sleep in at night, good friends, or a view of the sunshine, you instantly shift your energy into an abundance vibration, and truly everything you need comes to you. Someone recently said to me “You may not get all you want, but you will always get all you need” and it is true.

A couple of weeks ago the indicator lights on our rental car stopped working. It turned out to be this huge electrical problem and so we had to drive the car back from Phoenix to South Dakota, completely re-routing our trip (indicator lights not working, change of direction needed, yes yes I got it). Well, as it turns out my uncle in Phoenix had a car in his garage that he hadn’t driven for a year so he has lent that to us for the rest of our trip. My friend in Canada is flying back to Australia earlier than expected so instead of missing her as we would have, had we stuck to our original route, we are on the way to visit her this coming week. Weather wise we will now be driving down the west coast in November, rather than up, going into warmer weather rather than colder. The ‘problem’ was a huge blessing in disguise. We give thanks nightly for the right guidance and this is one example where our angels stepped in to turn us in a direction more perfect for us. Now is the time when we need to remember to appreciate the little things – which are actually big things. Love. Family. Connection. Helping out your neighbours and friends. Thank you are two of the most powerful words in the universe for helping you through these times, out of the old and into the new.

Sep Monthly Vision: Ladybugs and Fearless Faith

September 2008 Monthly Visions
Ladybugs and Fearless Faith

“Build it and they will come”. This was the main message carried by the Kevin Costner movie Field of Dreams and it definitely is the theme of the moment in our life movie. Everywhere you look, from The Secret to Esther & Jerry Hicks and Abraham’s Law of Attraction books and dvds, we are being reminded that not only do we create our own reality, but our ideal reality is already existent right in this very moment. All we have to do is bridge the gap between our perceived ‘here’ and ‘there’. What bridges the gap? Moving step by step up the emotional ladder, from frustration to hope to excitement, (well I’ve skipped a few rungs there but you get my drift) until we get to the holy grail of complete and total faith that whatever we have projected onto our mental movie screen will manifest, must manifest, in our physical reality.

Just in case I was having any trouble fully embodying this concept, I have been bombarded by signs and examples lately urging me and encouraging me to believe it, live it, and surrender to it fully without question.

I was given a book recently called The Game of Life and How to Play It by Florence Scovel Shinn. It is a tiny little book, written in 1925, but carrying the same messages we are just starting to grasp on a mass level: see something in your mind, believe it to be so, and it must be so. Florence was an avant-garde metaphysician who shared this message with all of her clients. One woman felt she couldn’t afford Christmas presents that year. Florence advised her to buy the Christmas wrapping paper, with total faith and expectation that presents would come to fill them. She said to let go of even an ounce of worry or doubt that this wouldn’t happen. This was important. Total Faith. Sure enough an unexpected sum of money came to this woman a couple of days before Christmas and she was able to buy presents.

Another woman was in a shop when her child asked for a small toy. The woman said ‘No we can’t afford that’, walked away and then remembered what Florence had told her: That God (the Divine/Universe/Spirit/whatever your preferred name for Source) was her eternal and abundant Supply and would always provide all she needed. She realised she was buying into fear and a lack mentality so she turned right back around and bought the toy. On the way home from the shop she found on the ground the exact amount of money she had paid for the toy!

Florence reminds us that you cannot attract anything beyond which your mind has limits around. For example if deep down you really don’t believe you can possibly attract a Ferrari, well you probably won’t. It also may mean that deep down, a Ferrari is not so important for your soul anyway. She asks us to place special attention on those images that flit through our mind regularly, the book we want to write, the home we want to live in, the trip we want to take, the move we want to make, those things that our heart truly yearns for are the things that are there/here waiting for us.

I recommend this book to everyone.

One day last week, after my daily meditation that Christian and I have recently started to do, I was reading this book, and realized how it applied to my own life. Here we are in the US, with plans to travel through Mexico, Central and South America as well, with a return ticket dated sometime in 2009, having gone on complete faith that somehow this would be made possible, especially as far as finances go. The return ticket with a date far beyond any date a logical person would have chosen is our sign of faith to the Universe that we will be travelling for a long time so the Universe is responding by, one day at a time, making it possible.

I walked outside and ended up next to a little bush. On a leaf was a beautiful lady bug. Hmm, I thought, that feels like a good sign of something. I went inside to start some work for the day, and opened up a bag where I keep a lot of my computer gear. I reached in to get a particular CD I needed and felt my hand touch a tiny plastic ziplock bag. I pulled it out and to my amazement saw it contained a small, wooden lady bug! I have no idea how it got there. Curious as ever, I looked up the meaning of ladybug (thank you Google) and saw that it meant: wishes coming true, good luck, fearless faith with the expectation of receiving everything you desire. Indeed, a good sign.

I thought of that movie Under the Tuscan Sun, when the wildly exuberant forever youthful Katherine says to Frances “When I was a little girl, I spent all afternoon in the grass looking for ladybugs. Eventually I’d fall asleep in the sun and forget about them. When I woke up, I was covered in them.”

That afternoon I read an article in the launch issue of Empower Magazine about a couple who had tried everything without success to become pregnant. They got to the point where they surrendered to the possibility that they may be spending the rest of their lives alone with their dogs, yet still some unknown force compelled them to buy a 4 bedroom house. I believe their dream for a family was still alive and well in their hearts thus leading to the purchase of a family home. Three months after they moved in, the woman fell pregnant naturally.

Make clear your desired need, making sure to ask for ‘the right job/ home/ relationship/amount of money/situation to come in the most right and perfect way’, then let go of your grasp on the how, who and when. Frances Scovel Shinn keeps re-iterating that.

Just when I thought the messages of the day were done, having come loud and clear, the grand-daughter of the person we are staying with said: “I’m going to sit down and watch a movie, wanna watch?” “What are you watching,” I asked? “Under the Tuscan Sun” she replied, knowing nothing about the ladybug themed day I’d had. Of course she was watching Under the Tuscan Sun!

The movie is about Frances, a recently divorced woman who finds herself unexpectedly in Tuscany, then spontaneously buys an old, large house which she has to completely renovate. One day she has an emotional release in front of her supportive realtor, blurting out that she must be the stupidest woman in the world, buying a house ‘For a life that I don’t even have.” He asks her why she did it then and she replied ‘because I still want things. I want a wedding in this house. I want a family in this house.’ He tells her a story: “Signora, between Austria and Italy, there is a section of the Alps called the Semmering. It is an impossibly steep, very high part of the mountains. They built a train track over these Alps to connect Vienna and Venice. They built these tracks before there was a train in existence that could make the trip. They built it because they knew someday the train would come.”

Build it and they will come.

The Universe right now is trying so hard to get us to get this message. It is not a new message, but perhaps it is a new thing that more of us than ever before are ready to hear it, to believe it, to live it.

My day ended with a sense of awe and peace. Just before I went to bed I checked my Facebook, as you do. A friend had sent me a Ladybug.

Tune in to The Flip and Money and the Law of Attraction

Hi Everyone,

I have two exciting things to tell you today! Firstly, this week on Visioning the Dream Awake I’ll be interviewing David Rippe and Jared Rosen, co-authors of the revolutionary book The Flip. If you are interested in moving from an ‘Upside Down” world to a “Right Side Up” world then tune in! Last week’s show is now available via podcast, as are all shows around 24 hours after broadcasting.

Wednesday, August 13, 2008 at 4pm Pacific (Los Angeles)
Thursday, August 14, 2008 at 9am Sydney time


The Flip - Turn Your World Around: Jared Rosen and David Rippe

Humanity stands at an important crossroads. Dana speaks to David Rippe and Jared Rosen, authors of The Flip-Turn Your World Around, which describes two worlds existing on Earth today. 'One is an Upside-Down world where people feel stressed out, fearful and powerless . they feel headed towards a hopelessly polluted world where things like unaffordable healthcare, scarcity of resources, and endless war seem unavoidable. The other is a world that is Right-Side Up. People in this world know that emotional and spiritual well-being, meaningful work and feeling connected to others is possible. These people know that their individual choices affect the lives of everyone else . Humanity stands on a bridge between these worlds and must make a choice to go in one direction or the other.' Rosen and Rippe interviewed over 50 leading visionaries including John Gray, Gary Zukav, Oscar Arias and Barbara Marx Hubbard, to help show you how to turn your world - personal and global - around.

Excerpt from Esther and Jerry Hicks' new book Money, and the Law of Attraction

Although some people have discovered the freedom of allowing large amounts of money to flow through their experiences, it is more often the case that because you are experiencing far less money than you need or desire, most of you are not feeling free. It is our intention, here, to clearly explain why this financial disparity exists so that you can begin to allow the abundance that you want and deserve into your experience. For, as you read these words and as you begin to resonate with these Law based truths, you will align your desire with the abundance of your world, and the evidence of your newfound alignment will soon become apparent to you and to others who observe you.

Whether you are one who has been working to achieve financial abundance for many years or you are a youngster just starting down that path, the journey to financial Well Being does not have to be a long one from where you are.
And it does not require large amounts of time or physical effort, for we are going to explain to you in simple and easy to understand terms how to utilize the leverage of Energy that is available to you. We want to show you the absolute correlation between the thoughts you have been thinking about money, the way you feel when you think those thoughts -- and the money that flows into your experience. When you are able to consciously make that correlation, and you decide to deliberately direct your thoughts accordingly, you will access the power of the Universe and you will then see how time and physical effort are rather irrelevant to your financial success.

So we begin with the simple premise of your Universe and of your world: You get what you think about. Often people say to us, "That can't be true, because I have wanted and thought about more money for as long as I can remember, but I continue to struggle with not enough money." And what we then tell them is the most important thing for you to understand if you want to improve your financial situation: The subject of money is really two
subjects: (1) money, plenty of money, the feeling of freedom and ease that plenty of money can provide; and (2) absence of money, not nearly enough money, the feeling of fear and disappointment that the thought of absence of money induces.

Often people assume that because they are speaking the words "I want more money," they are speaking positively about money. But when you are speaking of money (or anything) and you are feeling fear or discomfort as you speak, you are not speaking of the subject of money, but instead you are speaking of the subject of not enough money. And the difference is very important, because the first statement brings money and the second holds it away.

It is of value for you to become aware of how you are really thinking and, more important, feeling about money. If you are thinking or saying things
like: "Oh, that is a very beautiful thing -- but I cannot afford it," you are not in a vibrational position to allow in the abundance you desire. The feeling of disappointment that is present as you acknowledge that you cannot afford it is your indicator that the balance of your thought is pointed more toward the lack of your desire than toward the desire itself. The negative emotion that you feel as you acknowledge that you cannot afford something that you want is one way of understanding the balance of your thoughts, and the amount of abundance that you are actually experiencing is another way of knowing.

August Monthly Visions - Get out of your own Way!

August Monthly Visions: Get out of your own Way!

I have had the most inspiring week here in LA with the same message being driven home to me over and over again: Let your self have a great life and get out of your self’s way as it moves quite naturally toward this!

On Wednesday we were feeling drawn to go to the Agape centre where Michael Bernard Beckwith (from The Secret) does a service each week. We weren’t sure he’d be there as we’d heard he was due in Hawaii for an event the next day. We’d also been advised to get there about an hour early as parking was apparently hard to find. It was 6pm by the time we made our way back to the car after an afternoon exploring the colourful Venice Beach, about half an hour away from Agape at that time of day. The pre-service meditation was at 6.45pm. I knew we’d make it there in time, so I just prayed to the angels to please take care of the parking for us. I said we’d need to find one straight away, right outside the centre.

Sure enough, we arrived around 6.35pm and were greeted by a parking usher, pointing us toward a space right next to the centre! We strolled inside and received a program for the evening. Michael Beckwith would be there! Not only was he there, but as he stepped on stage he let us know that tonight would be a very special event as they were filming it to be included as a CD in his new book Spiritual Liberation (Nov 11 2008). There was music, dancers, the launch of his single ‘Energetic Shapeshifter’ and of course plenty of motivational, empowering words from Michael!

This man is one of the most powerful, electric, enlightened speakers I have ever come across. Pure streams of consciousness poured out of him at warp speed, light and love and joy and passion seemed to be bouncing through him into the audience, the energy of ‘anything is possible’ was inescapable. This was not one of those mind-driven motivational talks that give you a hit of feel good only to leave you feeling a bit ‘left hanging’ in the morning. His words were coming from a place of Spirit, a place that my essence recognises as home and as truth.
My spirit and essence was jolted awake and reminded: You are here to be in joy, love, peace, prosperity, fun, passion, greatness, light, creativity and anything else you can imagine. You can be in all those things right now this second because that’s what you are, and that’s what you are in if you let yourself be in it, and the only thing stopping you – or allowing you – to be in these things is your perspective. Change your perspective, it will immediately shift your feelings, and as your feelings shift it is only a matter of time – be it minutes, hours, days or weeks – before your outer reality does a quantum leap shift to meet your new vibration.

I was reminded that whenever we are not in these things the only thing stopping us is our own self – our mind, our thoughts, our ego, our worries, our mental chatter, our what if this or what if that, our but’s, our should’s, our can’ts – I was reminded that it really is as simple as pressing stop or eject on all those energies. They do not serve, they do not help, they are not helpful in any way any more. Let them go.

His dance single Energetic Shapeshifter has a few lines that I love: “You might as well give in and be happy, you might as well give in and be great, you might as well give in and be prosperous, you might as well, you might as well.” We choose our thoughts and our feelings and our experiences every day, so why not choose greatness, happiness, peace, why not? Why do we make it so hard for ourselves?

On the weekend I attended the A Call to Awaken seminar by my friends Story Waters and Lee Harris. You can listen to an interview about it on my radio show, or download the podcast. Story said something that repeated Michael’s message: In these times, the universe is so greatly supporting us and pushing us to awaken that even if we try to resist it will be like running downstairs on an upward moving escalator! We’re still going to awaken. We’re still going to move into our higher selves. So we can do it the hard way – kicking, screaming, resisting, putting in front of us all the reasons why we can’t possibly have the life and reality of our dreams – or we can give in and turn around and let ourselves be taken up the escalator into all the goodness that is awaiting us and that is right here right now if only we open up our eyes and ears and heart and perspective to see, hear and feel it!

My guides keep repeating a message to me: let go of all your fear, doubts and worries, allow yourself the idea that the most wonderful, amazing experience/dream/goal/desire you could possibly imagine can come true/happen/come to you. Allow yourself the idea that it can happen within the next month! Allow yourself the idea that what we have planned for you, if you just let us give it to you, is greater than your wildest imaginations!

This whole experience has been a journey of faith. We packed up our lives in Australia and headed here with no specific plan other than to follow our guidance and go where the wind took us. So far, our itinerary has unfolded before us more full and wonderful than we could have imagined. We have received invitations from friends and friends of friends and people we just met to stay with them whenever we are in their town – which we happen to be going to the next day. Synchronicities are everywhere when you open yourself to the direction your soul is guiding you toward.

Lately, I am also realizing it is meant to be a journey of fun. Story channelled through a brilliant piece of guidance which my own guides have been telling me for a while now: let go of the sense of mission and have fun, enjoy yourself! If working for humanity and the planet gives you joy, then do it. But if it would give you more joy to lie on a beach somewhere, then do that! The message was so strong that we decided to include the clip in the radio interview so you can listen to it yourself. His channelling said that at the end of our lives we are not judged on whether we did enough to help the planet, or if we successfully sorted out our issues. We are asked one question: Did you enjoy your life?

So I am here enjoying my life, and part of my joy is to do this work that I do. I would do it even if I didn’t get paid for it and for many, many years I didn’t get paid, but I did it anyway because I can’t imagine not doing it. I just kept doing it, and the universe has always found a way to support me. So don’t think about doing what you love when you have the money. Do what you love and the abundance will come – in one form or another.

So today ask yourself, are you enjoying your life? What is stopping you from enjoying it? Start with the things you can shift right now: your perspective, your feelings, your inner world. We are not here to be stuck in stagnation or live in a density of our own making and choosing. We are here to create a great life. We are here to enjoy our life. I know that these words can bring up anger in people especially when you feel you are stuck in a life or density not of your choosing. Consider that on some level it is your choosing, and ask yourself what would I have to believe to have chosen this? We cannot make a permanent change in our reality, until we know why we have chosen the one we are currently in. Otherwise we will keep subconsciously choosing it!! So find out what you believe to be possible, what you believe to be true, what you believe to be impossible. Change your beliefs if you feel they are not serving you, unchoose your reality and in the words of Michael Bernard Beckwith start to energetically shapeshift your life!

June Energies: Let go of the Chains of the Past and Welcome the Keys to your Freedom!

What’s Happening this Month written by Dana Mrkich

June Energies: Let go of the Chains of the Past and Welcome the Keys to your Freedom!

Right now we are being asked to break down any limiting little boxes we have created in our minds. You know the ones. They tightly grip on to what they know to be true, based on a less than functional history, and hold on for dear life, even when the walls are collapsing all around them. It is like that story of the elephants who were chained to poles from birth, training them not to stray too far. Eventually the elephants grew up and were more than strong enough to break free, but they were so conditioned to stay within their confined space that it never occurred to them they could leave!

Many people are now choosing – or having the choice thrust upon them seemingly without their choice – to break free out of old, confined spaces. I say seemingly because everything is the choice of our higher self with or without our conscious knowing. Jobs, relationships, homes, geographic locations that are past their use by date are being swept from beneath us. We are being propelled into realities that are more expansive, freeing us to truly be who we really are.

You would think we would all be leaping for joy and shouting yippee! No Siree Bob, for many it is the exact opposite. From the extreme of gripping on to the old, collapsing reality so tight it is hurting, to haunting ourselves with constant fears, doubts and worries: “How will I survive”, “Where will the money come from to support this new life”, and “I will be jobless/homeless/relationshipless forever", our guides are shaking their heads with despair.
It is like they have given us the keys to get out of jail, and we are crying wanting to be let back in.

It is common for people who have spent a long time in prison to re-offend just to get back in there. Why? Well, prison often becomes for them the one place in their life that feels familiar, that offers a comfort zone of sorts. Daily life is scheduled, there is a roof over their heads and three square meals a day. Cellmates become brothers, and while I am by no means insinuating prison life is peachy, it at least offers some degree of stability and security for many who have had not one inch of that in their lives. Out in the world it is a whole new ballgame, offering freedom yes, but a freedom filled with uncertainty. Sounds crazy yes. Surely one would take freedom over prison bars, no matter how uncertain the future? Really? Have you ever stayed in a relationship or job too long that you knew was not healthy for you, but you stayed anyway because you were scared about ending up alone or surviving financially?

So this is how we humans are. Paradise is often available right in front of us but until we get some kind of guarantee it is there, with a detailed map and itinerary listing exactly how to get to the front door and which rides we should take when in there, and whether those rides will make us sick and giddy or happy and joyful, well, we tend to stay right where we are even if it’s a bit of a swamp.

Meanwhile our guides are shouting from the top of the ferris wheel: Over here, this way, it’s all here, just look! If you can’t see, just trust. If you can’t trust, well then just jump anyway! Are you happy where you are now?? Then what have you got to lose?

We are this way because we have been stuck in the matrix where time has a past present future line, and our mirrors are usually turned to the rear view. This gives us no hope whatsoever that tomorrow can actually be different to yesterday. We fear and even anticipate repeating the past, and so often we do because we are the creators of our reality and we create the reality we think we are going to create. We see the reality we expect to see.

If you are looking at the present with grey coloured glasses on, viewing what’s happening through the lens of past experiences, holding on to old and outdated rigid beliefs about reality, those glasses will be feeling pretty tight and uncomfortable right now. We don’t often know we are walking around with these glasses – otherwise we would fling them off pronto! Sometimes we do know but they have been stuck so firmly on for so long that we have no idea how to remove them no matter how hard we pull!

How do you know if you have a pair of these glasses on? Look around at all aspects of your reality, and your relationship with these aspects. Money, love, health, work, home, family – are you desperately trying to move toward one reality, while another one keeps popping up in front of you, whether real or imagined? Is the Universe shoving you into a new reality but you are adamant some kind of mistake has been made and all this change is leading nowhere good. Are you in, or one step close to, the life of your dreams but can’t seem to enjoy it because old tapes keep playing that old one hit wonder “Worries, Doubts and Fears”. If so – chuck out the old tapes so that you can hear what the new tapes are saying “Jump. Trust. Believe. Have Faith”!!! Take off the glasses so that you can see the Paradise ahead of you, or all around you, clearly. It is there.

Right now Christian and I are preparing for a big adventure. All we had to go on was the guidance from our guides to head to the Americas. The second we committed to the trip a detailed itinerary started to unfold right before our eyes, all of it by way of invitations and openings that came to us from people who didn’t even know we were heading in that direction! One week away from leaving, bags and home nearly packed up, we find ourselves with the first 2 months completely scheduled with the most amazing events and happenings. We are sure that things will continue to unfold this way because one thing has been made clear to us time and again; when you follow your guidance it will always, always lead you toward the direction of your destiny.

So, yes I am also one of those people jumping into the unknown yet there is nothing truly uncertain about it, because the itinerary team up in Spirit co-ordinating things would have to take out the biggest award for Most Efficient and Most Organised Management.

Don’t be scared of your freedom. Embrace it. Say goodbye to any self imposed jails you have created and are leaving behind, be they physical, mental or emotional, and take the keys to your Paradise right now. They are right there in your Heart, whispering to you, this way, this way.

May Energies: Where’s my Support…and why did you Hit Me? Or Goodbye to the Old Masculine and Hello to the New!

What’s Happening this Month written by Dana Mrkich

May Energies: Where’s my Support…and why did you Hit Me? Or Goodbye to the Old Masculine and Hello to the New!

All around us the theme of the moment is support – how are we being supported? Who is supporting us? Who has been supporting us? How will we continue to be supported in the future? Why are our support structures shifting and changing so rapidly? This is coming up for us in every aspect of our lives – emotionally, spiritually, physically and financially. Let’s start with the aspect most visible (or invisible as the case may be) to many right now – money.

You could be forgiven for thinking we have entered some bizarre world where all of a sudden the head of Abundance and Money has called for a re-structure. You look into your bank account and you’re sure that more should be in there, but a plethora of bills, payments, payouts and purchases have suddenly swooped in to take their share and you are left with much less than you are used to. Monies you expected to arrive perhaps haven’t come in yet, (they are on their way!) meanwhile conditions at work are reshuffling so quickly you aren’t even sure if you’ll still be there in a month’s time. Certain streams of income are shutting down, while unexpected new streams of abundance are opening up……phew we discover we have more than enough funds to pay those bills after all!

When I was talking about this issue of support that has arisen in people lately my friend and brilliant healer/channel Peita Campbell said: “It’s the Divine Masculine awakening.” Hmmm…..we have been dealing with the awakening of the Divine Feminine so much over the last few years I must say that I have somewhat neglected the Divine Masculine. I walked to the beach and sat down on the sand, closing my eyes to ask for guidance on this matter. Immediately I got an image of a giant size gold genie! I just knew that this was a representation of my Divine Masculine. I asked him what on Earth was going on with the support systems in people’s lives right now? He replied by saying that all support systems that are no longer serving us or in any way connected to the old masculine paradigm are being removed right now, so that support systems that genuinely do serve us and that are aligned with the new masculine way of supporting can come in.

For example, perhaps a woman has been relying on money from a partner, but that partner loses his job or leaves her. Suddenly she is faced with the very real need of finding some income fast. Although the initial feeling is one of panic and fear, ultimately this situation will take her from a place of dependency, to one of independence where not only is she learning to take care of herself but in the process moving into new work that her soul has perhaps been crying out to do for years. Maybe she hasn’t been living to her full potential and this turn of events pushes her, albeit initially with great difficulty, into a whole new and improved self and life.

In another example, a man who has been working in a corporate job he doesn’t enjoy all that much but gets paid well for, is pushed out of the company. He has been saying he has to get out for years, deeply desiring to do something he really loves, but the fear factor has always stopped him. Well, the decision was made for him – in every sense of the word. The decision was made FOR him – for his highest good. The universe didn’t push him out of the company to have him be homeless and bankrupt. It pushed him because they can see a future for him that is waiting for him, one in which he is happily running his own business. The push created some stress, but ultimately provided the impetus for him to try out his idea once and for all.

Stepping into our new support structures requires trust – and when we don’t have that trust the universe is trusting on our behalf and pushing us into the new. (It’s much easier of course for them to trust on our behalf, seeing as they can see a whole lot further down the road than we can!)

So it’s a case of ready or not, here comes your support structure paradigm shift from old to new! This process is bringing up so many emotions in people; feeling they are being abandoned, sadness and anger around losing their former sources of security and stability, fear that much is being taken away but not yet connecting with the wonderful things to come. This is why the key word to help you through this time is: TRUST.

When I was chatting with my Divine Masculine on the beach that day, he looked at me and asked: “Do you trust that my worth is enough to support you?” That was a new question for me. I have definitely dealt with the Divine Feminine and the need for her worth to be acknowledged especially with regards to relationships, but now here was the Divine Masculine talking to me about a whole other kind of worth. The more traditional show me the money kind of worth.
As I looked at him it seemed ridiculous to say anything other than “Yes!” what with his ten foot tall, solid gold genie-like presence sending out quite the message of ‘I am limitless abundance at your disposal’. I realized all the many things we do or accept that suggest we don’t trust the worth of our Divine Masculine.

So now is a good time to connect with your own Divine Masculine and when he asks you if you trust that his worth is enough to support you, feel into are you ready to say yes? Take a look at all the reasons why you have been saying no, or still are.

Of course this support issue is also playing itself out emotionally in the realm of relationships: “Is this partner/friend/boss truly there for me?” Your inner child may be asking (again) “Why weren’t my parents there for me?” Old insecurities around these issues may be triggering neediness, jealousy, paranoia, controlling behaviour, doubts and dramas. All of these things are being highlighted and intensified so that they can ship up and clear out!

While our Divine Feminine is teaching us: you can love and nurture yourself no matter who is or isn’t there for you, no matter who was or wasn’t there for you, the Divine Masculine is teaching us: you can look after yourself materially and financially no matter what, you can stand up for yourself and receive what you are worth no matter what.

The awakening of the Feminine triggers all our wounds around the separation from Source, influencing how loved we feel. The awakening of the Masculine triggers all our wounds around basic human survival on this planet, influencing how safe, protected and provided for we feel. Just as the message of the Divine Feminine is YOU are the source of your own Love, the message of the Divine Masculine is YOU are the source of your own Abundance. We are all Divine Sparks from the One Source. We are part of it just like drops of ocean are part of the ocean, and so we cannot be separated from that which we are. Your worth is deep and limitless, and it has the ability to give you endless amounts of all good things, material and emotional. So open up your Divine Feminine and Masculine energy, connect with their immense worth, and let them know you are ready to receive all that you deserve and all that you are!

Bicycle: A New Reality Real Life Story

So many people are resonating right now to the leap of faith it takes, as we jump from our old realities into the new. I'd like to share this short story written by a client, that as she says, captures how she feels after the transition. If you have a story of your own to share, please email me at: and we can post it here to help inspire others to make their own shift.

Bicycle by Kiara

Both rain and the wind are belting me from different directions. I have just reached the point at which the last thread of my clothing has become soaked. I feel like a giant sponge that has been suspended in mid air and placed upon this devilish metal contraption that taunts gravity by its forward momentum. However, this momentum has become somewhat impeded by the raw forces of nature that are playing with it as capriciously as a small child. Sometimes they let it fly free into the ether, and at other times they force it to a glacial pace at which even the slowest of snails would overtake me.

Is it sweat, is it rain or could it even be tears that are flowing down my face? It could be a conglomerate of all three, yet it doesn’t really matter because the night is dark and there are no stars to illuminate my trials. I shall not allow this to beat me and my ideals. I envisioned that this trip would bring with it a feeling of emancipation, and freedom from the constraints of stagnation that were eating away at me in my prior safety shell. I needed to crawl out of the place of security, familiarity and consistency, say adieu to the mundane and prosaic and step off the cliff with the knowledge that the parachute will inevitably open.

Today as I am being put through my first major initiation, I can see why people tend to be reluctant in taking the leap. I feel as if this is my first test, and I wish to fly instead of falling and thus I shall persist. As a final test of strength, the rear tyre has gone flat. I pull over and get out a map from my soggy backpack. I still attempt to maintain an air of indifference and a matter of fact stance as I leaf through the tattered pages.

Finally I realise that I am even further from my end goal than when I started, and a feeling of helplessness overcomes me. My spirit has just deflated to imitate my rear tyre. I wish nothing more than to hurl the rust bucket into the nearest canal, yet my early idealistic visions flash before my eyes like a silent black and white movie. This is my future, this is the new reality that I was seeking, and this was the risk that I was willing to take in order to move beyond the status quo which left me numb and uninspired.

So what if I am lost in a large city, at night, with rain, wind and a flat tyre? In reality I am still much better off than safely at home wondering why life is passing me by. I suddenly feel alive and realise that this constitutes living in the moment. I am not contemplating what I shall do in the future or reminiscing about the past, I exist in the present moment. I can smell the mud below my feet, I can feel the icy wind and rain whipping my face and I can see smudged lights that together comprise this city. It matters not that I am lost. What matters is that I stepped outside of the self perpetuating cycle which epitomised security, stability and certainty. I am free and thus I shall pedal on.

April Energies: Feel the Heat...and do it Anyway!

What’s Happening this Month Embracing Global and Cosmic events to help Create your Reality, written by Dana Mrkich.

April Energies: Feel the Heat…and do it Anyway!

Before you start reading this month’s energy report let’s take a moment to take a deep breath in. Hold it for five seconds, and now let out a BIG exhale. How did that feel? Did you feel like you just released some tension? Good. Did you get a feeling wash over you that says it’s going to be okay no matter how stressed/pushed to your limit/exhausted/full of fear you have been? Well, it will be okay. It actually already is, even though we might not exactly know up from down one minute to another these days!

Here’s the strange thing about these changing times. It’s like we’ve been running a marathon for a really, really long time. We’ve always had our supporters by the sidelines cheering us on, some who we see clearly and others we don’t. We’ve also had another crowd off in the distance who haven’t wanted us to do very well in this marathon, but mainly they didn’t pay us too much attention. This crowd have occasionally sent obstacles and false detours our way. They’ve had a few great laughs watching us sweat it out and get emotional about this endurance event we entered eons ago, not remembering why. Mainly they’ve pre-occupied themselves with other things, never in a million years anticipating that we, the Earth people, would ever come close to getting over the finishing line. You see this crowd under-estimated the strength of the human spirit, which is driven by the desire to move ever forward and discover our true potential.

This crowd have been laughing at us hurling ourselves ever closer toward the finish line, marked on our Earth calendar by the date December 21 2012. “You think you’re going to get there in one piece?” they shouted down from the viewing hills. “You can’t even run a mile without abusing each other or yourselves,” they taunted “Give up now people, the show’s over. Go home.”

The more they taunted, the faster and further we ran. Yes we humans are a crazy bunch. The more someone says we can’t do something, the more defiant we get, the more stubborn, determined and driven we become. “You think we can’t finish this race? We’ll show you a finish!”we shouted back. We looked around at each other nodding and affirming ourselves, meanwhile thinking “Oh man, we’re in trouble. We’re not in good shape at all!” So, we had a big meeting. We could either keep tripping each other up and get nowhere, or we could band together and as a team help each other get across that line, no matter what it took.

So, several years ago (yes it’s been a long long marathon), we started to work together. We started chanting positive affirmations toward each other. We threw books to our teammates that we felt would help them with their technique and running style. One by one we all started turning into the little engine that could, puffing ‘I think I can, I think I can’ as we put one foot in front of the other.

The crowd started paying a bit more attention, but still didn’t take all this motivational stuff too seriously. “I mean, pffhh they’re human for god’s sake. How much more can they take?”

But we kept going, and finally we got to the marker that the crowd never thought we’d reach. The marker of 2008. Alarm bells started going off, and a buzz spread throughout the crowd. This was completely unforeseen. Never in a million years did they think we’d get this far, and still be on our feet, still be in a state of moving forward. They decided to start getting serious with their sabotaging tactics. They started throwing energy balls at us targeting our most vulnerable areas: our belief in ourselves, our faith in humanity, our confidence in our ability to have a dream and a vision ahead of us and muster up the courage and strength to go for it, no matter how hard it gets, no matter how big our doubts grow, no matter how much our fears feel like they are enveloping us.

Right now we are feeling two extremes of polarity at the exact same time, and it can be hectic! We are so close to the finishing line, the supporters lining the route are growing in numbers and their cheers are getting so loud. With each mile we are being given a glimpse of what awaits us at the finish. Either through visions or awakened hope or remembered dreams or actual changing situations we are being shown a whole new reality that includes our most perfect soulmate relationship, connections with our most dear soul family and friends, work that we love that supports us in every way and helps to uplift and empower others, new homes in new locations that are more in alignment with our new selves. The momentum of the new carries us forward and helps over-ride the burning feeling in our muscles that is crying out for rest.

Rest one day if you need to, then get up and keep running!!

Simultaneously the energies that don’t want us to get to the finish line have gone into a frenzy. We are ducking and weaving trying to dodge gigantic balls of doubt and fear. We are trying to shut out the voices telling us it’s too late, telling us we can’t make it, meanwhile trying to tune in to the constant vibe of support humming around us affirming to us, it’s not too late, you can do it, you’re nearly there, keep going, keep going. Half the time we feel like crawling up in our doona’s and sending out a message to the rest of the team: “Wake me when it’s over.” But we know we can’t do that, and nor would we want to miss out on all the action, as crazy as it is, and still is yet to get.

Right now you might feel like all you’ve ever wanted is right there in front of you, closer than it ever has been before. At the same time, you might be feeling more fear and doubt than ever before about actually reaching out and stepping into the life that you came here to live. Some days you feel like you’re running toward the home stretch with wind under your wings, and other days you feel like you’re jumping hurdles. Keep jumping, keep running.

I read a great quote once, that said “When one door closes another one opens, but it’s hell in the hallway. Don’t stop in the hallway!” It’s interesting that I’m currently hearing about a lot of dreams people are having to do with fire, volcanoes, intense burning heat and explosions. It might feel like we’ve jumped out of the frying pan into the fire (sorry, old boring analogy but kinda appropriate here!), but this is not a time to sit down and cry about how hot it is getting! Okay then, have a cry, but then when you’ve had a good bawl, get up and keep moving. We need all hands on deck, to help each other cross that finish line and prove wrong anyone who thought we couldn’t do it. This is what you came here for. The entire marathon up until now has been like a warm up. Your muscles have been stretched, your fitness is at it’s peak, even though you might feel you are at your most weary.

If you have a vision in your mind about what you want, or even have a pretty good idea about what you don’t want, then let that motivate you to keep moving forward. When the fear and doubt come, treat them like a hurdle that you just have to jump over.

Onward, upward. Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t do what you came here to do, or be who you came here to be. Not at this point of the game. One by one we all need to cross the finish line. Your running team, your fellow humans, need you. Get up and keep moving toward your true self and best life. You can do it.

March Energies: Feels like Crunch time!

What’s Happening this Month

Embracing Global and Cosmic events to help Create your Reality,

by Dana Mrkich

March Energies: Feels like Crunch time!

We have become accustomed by now to the ups and downs of the rollercoaster ride as we make our journey to the new reality, but wow what a dhoozy of a ride the last month has been! Sharp jerks to the left, sudden drops, unexpected stalls and carriages that twirl around in circles have left many feeling dizzy, sick and as if they are barely hanging on! Many are asking, “Where is the beautiful, rainbow filled happy ever after? Why is this so hard? Why do I feel like *%&#? Why am I so angry/tired/frustrated/over it?
Issues that felt as if they were long gone have raised up more intensely than ever before, along with any remaining irritations, resentments and insecurities within us. Our inner children are having a field day, standing up to be counted. They are raising their voices, chucking tantrums, drawing lines in the sand, strengthening their boundaries and declaring “no more!” at the thought of being hidden, ignored, not listened to, avoided or abused anymore.

If you have mainly been paying lipservice to your path then this last month may have shown you the difference between your talk and your walk loud and clear. If your mantra is ‘everything happens for a reason’ but you get frustrated at any small upset in your routine or expected outcome then the control ogre that resides within you likely triggered a few earthquakes to bring him or herself to your attention.

If you have been talking about the kind of relationship or work you would like for years, but somehow keep attracting (ie saying yes to!!!) the complete opposite of that, then things are going to start feeling mighty uncomfortable as your authentic self and ego battle for space. There is only room for one of them on your seat into the new reality, and they are going to fight hard in an attempt to squeeze the other out. Decide which one you want as your traveling companion and offer your 100% unconditional support to them all the way. Not just lip service support, but real life following your instincts doing what you feel guided to do no matter what support.
“How can I tell the difference between my authentic self and my ego?” is a really common question. Well the ego usually guides us from a place of fear, while the authentic self guides us from a place of love.

When we follow the ego we usually learn our lessons the hard way, we resist change or changing, we try to control others, and are left feeling exhausted, depleted, as if we are swimming the wrong way against the current of a river. We ignore the signs that say wrong way, go back. We make all the excuses in the world but deep down know we are going against the grain of our most authentic self, and are not treating him or her with dignity and respect. The ego sucks us back in the direction of the old reality.

When we follow the authentic self we are pulled along the river in a good way, going with the flow of the current. Our authentic self is headed in the direction of the new reality and ultimately, whether we feel excited, scared, challenged, joyous or inspired by that, we have a good feeling about it. Perhaps not knowing exactly where we are going, but trusting that we are being led to a good and right place. We follow the signs and synchronicities that come our way, pointing us further in the right direction. We allow others to live life their way, respecting their choices and decisions, because we are respecting and following our own.

We can’t give out any more mixed messages to the universe, asking for one thing but saying yes to another thing holding fear or doubt it will ever come. We are terrified of the gap in between asking and receiving, and do anything to fill it. Ironically, our saying yes to the other thing from a place of fear or doubt can stop the one thing from coming!! Stop saying yes to what you don’t actually want, and the universe will get the message quickly and give you what you really want. Now this doesn’t mean you ask for your dream job and then sit back waiting, saying no to other job offers while the bills and rent pile up. It does mean to hold your vision and let it call you toward it, staying true to it anyway you can, while still doing what you have to do on a day to day basis to live. If you have to say yes to another thing temporarily, do it with gratitude, thanking it for supporting you while you are ever moving toward your desired one thing. Even if for now you just have a vision board pinned up on your wall, then that is what you have. Hold your vision!

So it’s crunch time. We have been allowing our authentic selves and egos to share the space within us for a long time now, but it is getting more and more difficult for them to do so. The energetic vibration of each is so vastly different that they literally cannot co-exist together. You may have noticed that whenever you drop into an old emotion, issue or pattern it immediately causes tension, pain or temporary illness in your physical body. It just doesn’t feel good anymore to drop down into old reality realities. When we keep our vibration high, and commit to supporting our authentic self, we feel lighter and clearer. It can be hard to keep our vibration high. It’s not easy to let go of things, people, jobs, homes, relationships, patterns, habits or anything that has been with us for a long time. But if these things now feel toxic or unhealthy more often than not, or are not serving our best possible path forward, then let go we must.

Know you are not alone. Know you have a team of dedicated guides supporting you through this process. Know you have hundreds of thousands of soul family all around the world, all right now going through the same process you are going through. This isn’t an easy time, but it doesn’t have to be a difficult time. Surrender to your authentic self. Let her or him go where she or he needs to go. Support your authentic self with everything you’ve got, and you will surely be led to your rainbow filled happily ever after.
