Seven Things to Soak Up in 2013.


A few weeks ago I shared the Top Seven Things to Unleash From as we entered 2013. In this sequel, I’m highlighting the Top Seven Things to Soak up in 2013. Put your Butterfly Wings on and prepare to soar for the rest of the year because if you add these seven items to your reality you will unleash it, baby. Guaranteed.


1. Patience & Certainty.  My impatience has led to many of my self-sabotage patterns. If you’re like me, and want things to happen at lightning speed, remember that patience is linked to love… Impatience is linked to fear.

Patience is a skill to be learned; it’s a catalyst to our magnetism. At the opposite spectrum, when we’re in impatience we’re also in doubt and control, which are low frequency states of being.

If you think of yourself in terms of a vibrational being, it makes sense that we’re constantly emitting and receiving different frequencies. Think of patience as a highly resonant frequency that elevates your vibration, and therefore raises your magnetism to the resources, aha’s, opportunities, ideas, people, and blessings that will help you fly this year.

“Love is patient; love is kind.” ~ 1 Corinthians 13:4 

We’ve forgotten that love isn’t something to be celebrated or honored only on Valentine’s Day. Love is a part of our everyday experience… Like a flower thrives in sunlight, we thrive in love.

If we begin to view love in terms of how much we put out and into the everyday things we do, it’ll become easier for us to embrace patience as a way to be in love. Remind yourself that when you’re patient, you’re embodying love and certainty, two of the highest vibrations out in the Universe.


2. Surrender & Acceptance. I’ve mentioned that my impatience led me to be a control freak in all areas of my life. The antidote to control-freak-ness is surrender and acceptance. This is a tough pill to swallow but a necessary one if you’re really committed to making 2013 your year—the year you create unprecedented action and results.

As I mentioned above, control, doubt and impatience are found in the lower vibrational frequency realms. These states of being lower our own personal frequency and actually repel those very things we want.

I learned about surrender and acceptance the hard way—my stubborn will and drive led me to fall on my ass many, many times. My ego thought I was smarter, more resourceful, and wiser than the Universe. I spun my wheels and depleted my energy doing, trying, controlling, manipulating reality to fit my expectations.

Learn from my mistakes. Learn from your mistakes.

Realize that surrender is the portal to magic. Allowing is the special secret sauce of the Universe—it’s the space where not only the unexpected happens, but also the “impossible” and “unlikely.” Surrender takes courage and dedication. Surrender is like a muscle we must learn to practice daily until it becomes second nature.

Remember, our years of programming and conditioning have us resisting surrender so it’s not something that will come easily. It’s your commitment to soaking this one little change in as a permanent fixture in your life that can make a huge difference in how your year goes!


3. Remembering & Honoring my Divinity.  This is a game-changer. We’ve been so programmed to get caught up in the non-stop hamster wheel of life that we’ve forgotten this sacred Truth. We get lost in our jobs, businesses, relationships, goals, where we’re headed and where we’re running from that we lose sight of who we really are.

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”  ~ Pierre de Teilhard de Chardin

This is an intricate Truth that not everyone is able to grasp at once. It’s a Truth you can only come to know via experience. The truth is, the “reality” we believe to be real is only a small portion of the entire spectrum; it’s only the tip of the iceberg. The big picture requires an ascended view of our world—so we can dive underneath the water and see just how big this metaphorical iceberg is.

We’re much more than just a human body—so much more. When we think we’re just a human being living this finite life in the go-go-go world, we’re actually adopting a myopic view of our world. Think of it as the world from the perspective of an ant.

When we remember that we’re infinite consciousness expressing itself in human form, we adopt an ascended, elevated, full-screen view of our world. Think of it as the world from the perspective of an eagle soaring high.


4. I am my Bestie. In my previous post I mentioned that I’m unleashing from my self-rigidity in 2013. I’ve long been my own worst enemy and harshest critic. I’ve realized that in order for me to become the highest version of me I must first get back in my corner and become my own best friend.

The self-criticism, harsh inner talks, and sabotage must be traded for self-care, nurturing and nourishing choices—and, most of all, forgiveness for my past transgressions towards myself.

Think of how you treat your most cherished soul friends… Start treating yourself in the same fashion.


5. Recruiting my inner kid.  Until we heal our “baggage” we’re all just wounded kids in an adult suit. There’s power in reconnecting with your inner child… There’s so much rich information buried, waiting to be alchemized into our highest becoming.

Invoke your inner kid and play, play, play! Play activates bliss. Play ignites our magnetism. Play often precedes magic. Start thinking of daily ways to call forth little you.

Hang out with those who help bring him/her out! Go frolic in the park, get lost on a park swing, go jump on a trampoline, dance your heart out, laugh your ass off.


6. Compassion. We are wired for compassion. It strengthens our immune system and reinforces our brain’s health. In her powerful TED Talk, Buddhist Roshi Joan Halifax defines compassion as the ability to really see into the nature of suffering.

It is through compassion that we realize we’re not separate from the suffering we observe in our outer world. According to Halifax, we cannot be attached to an outcome because it distorts our capacity for compassion, which is an inherent human quality present in all of us.

If we can learn to live in a perpetual state of compassion, we will flow like an unstoppable avalanche of potency and love. We must remember that this also applies to our own selves—in fact, in order to really become our own best friend we must begin with compassion—for all of our “bad decisions,” mistakes, and self-imposed abuse.


7. Appreciative Inquiry. In her book, The Soul of Money, Lynne Twist talks about Appreciative Inquiry as new model for change. If we were to change our frame of reference from “problem solving” to one that begins by looking for the already existent resources at our disposal we might accelerate the manifestation of the change we seek.

“In Appreciative Inquiry we search for the best in people, organizations, and the relevant world around us… Instead of negation, criticism, and spiraling diagnosis, there is discovery, dream and design.”   ~ Lynne Twist



You won’t always get these right.

It’s not about getting them right 100% of the time or striving for perfection; that’s a call for disappointment, failure and frustration.

Go easy on yourself because you’re not sprinting towards a finish line… You’re taking it one step at a time and loving yourself as you become acquainted with this new way of being.

Stay strong and…unleash it, baby!

    This really rings a bell with me, an impatient impulse-driven Scorpio with a Virgo ascendent. Do it now and do it quickly has been my imperative. Not really productive. Better to let myself sit a bit. Thank you for this insight.
