Dream Big & Always Believe

The Power of Your Dream

Most of us gave up on believing in fairy tale endings and in our dreams coming true at a very young age. You may have been told by a parent or teacher to “get your head out of the clouds.” Instead of dreaming big, we walk around in a “sleep walk” like trance repeating the same tasks day after day. WE are a society who in general lives for the weekends, but if we are doing what we love each day would be joyful.

Be Fearless in the Pursuit of Your Dreams

With persistence, patience, and a positive attitude your dreams can come true. Your dream may sound crazy to others and boy will they tell you, but once you get behind your ideas whole heartedly the universe will conspire to make it happen. Believe in the power of your dream because it is the essence of who you are. We were each born with a unique purpose. If you do not yet know your purpose that is ok. Pursue your passions. It is difficult to not be effected by the thoughts and opinions of others, but be courageous anyway. They will all come around when they see your commitment and dedication.

Tis the Season to Believe

Most of us believed in Santa at some point in our lives. Although it is a strange tradition, it created the magic of Christmas. We put cookies and milk out and some of us even fed the reindeer. We teach our children not to lie but carry on this tradition because the power of belief is incredibly important. Your life can be just as magical as Christmas to a young child. Dream really really big and BELIEVE! Let no one dull your spirit. If you do not like the direction your life is going re invent yourself. You are the author and architect of your life. Write a new chapter, add or delete characters and design the life you love every damn day! Allow this season to remind you in the power of belief paired with positive mindset and determination. Not every day will be great, but there is something good in everyday.


The new year is quickly approaching but do not wait to start making the improvements you desire. Let your new years resolutions begin now with simple intentions to improve life. Consider starting a journal. Write daily and weekly goals that are achievable. Set yourself up to succeed. 


Believe in yourself. Believe in your dreams. Believe in the good of humanity. Believe in the power of the UNIVERSE. Allow yourself to follow your passion. Day dream from time to time. Shift your mindset and create healthy habits. All things are possible when you believe. 

Passionately,

Libby

What Are You Waiting For? Start Now!

There will never be a perfect time. Embrace the uncertainties and imperfections of life and go after your goals and dreams right now. The Power of Now, as described by Eckhart Tolle, describes the present moment as all that we really have. If you think about what you want and research it too long, suddenly the days whittle by and time is wasted. Just start! You do not have to be perfect or have it all figured out! Learn as you go! Strive for progress rather than perfection. Life is a journey. Once we get started with what we want to learn or do, like launching a new business, the momentum of the action builds and carries us through.

Stop creating excuses and start creating opportunities for yourself. Live a life based on love rather than fear. Love yourself enough to allow yourself to start living each day to the fullest. Conquer your small goals, your medium goals and eventually your big goals! You are capable of more than you even think is possible. The mind is a powerful muscle and when trained properly it becomes extremely strong. 

Are you living a third dimension life (3D) like most people, caught up in worldly pressures, fears and limitations?  Have you ever considered moving up to the 5th dimension where all things are interconnected and possible? In the 5D there are no boundaries. There is essentially no beginning and no ending. Therefore, there is nothing to fear or to hold you back from living your best life.  

So go for your dreams. Start today by taking baby steps because our actions ultimately create our outcomes!

Start by declaring your dream! Forget about how you are going to make it happen and just start. Do not let anything stop you. Roadblocks will come along your path, but do not let them slow you down. What if you only had three months left to live? Would you view things the same way?  Would you still move as slowly toward your dreams? Would you do things differently? I would urge you to live that way everyday; passionately in pursuit of all that you desire.  

Manifesting a dream means creating new healthy habits and breaking hold patterns. You do this through self awareness. It may take time, acceptance and honesty, but if you are true to yourself all is possible.  Determination Baby!

Find supportive people who can help hold you accountable and attain your dreams. You are worth it!  2018 holds incredible promise, but it is through your action that the magic will happen. The Universe will conspire to make your dreams come true once you place your intentions into action and start to live them. 

Sending you all my very best wishes and energy for your forward momentum.  

With momentum and excitement,

Libby

 

Tis' the Season to BELIEVE

Do you BELIEVE? This is a common question that is asked to children this time of year and it most often refers to their belief in Santa Claus. But the magic is really so much deeper and more important than that. It is also about believing in the magic of all things being possible. For children at Christmas, it is the hope that they might get a gift that would otherwise never be possible.

I want to shift to reality now and ask you to pause and reflect on the word, BELIEVE…. What does it mean to you as an adult? Not just this holiday season, but anytime that you see this beautiful word. What does it personally say to you? Please take a minute to think about it and even consider writing a few thoughts down on paper.

This is one of my very favorite words. It symbolizes magic and hope. At Christmas it is the hope that magic and faith will be restored for children and that peace will be brought to the world in a quiet gentle way. But, it is really so much bigger than that! There are miracles occurring around you every minute of every day, however, we are all too often too busy and unaware of them. Believe, believe in the magic within yourself! That my friends is the greatest gift of all! You have all that you need within yourself! You have all of the answers and all of the magic, the light, the love, the faith already. Sometimes your light is dimmed a bit and sometimes it is extinguished all together,  and yet that one word BELIEVE is there as a reminder to never ever give up. It is never to late to reignite your fire within, to start over, to rewrite your ending and believe in the magic of your life. Believe in miracles, because they really DO exist!

 Great things are coming in 2018! So take one more moment to reflect upon 2017, to give thanks for all of the good memories that you made and to set your intentions for the things that you would like to accomplish in 2018. It is good to set some small goals and some bigger goals. Set yourself up for success, but also give yourself some challenges to work toward. You are capable of more than you may know. It is through the challenges of life that we grow and become the best versions of ourselves.

 So if you have a BELIEVE sign out for he holidays, consider keeping it up throughout this winter. And if you do not, that’s ok, but when you see this word stop and pause and let it serve as a reminder of all of the magic and the possibilities that could be coming your way.

Tis the season to BELIEVE. Believe in the power of love, believe in the magic within, believe in creating the life you love, believe in yourself, believe in acceptance, believe in endless possibilities, believe in happiness, believe in forgiveness, believe in peace, believe, believe, believe…… 

Faith and Hope,

Libby

 P.S. - If your light has gone out or you see someone whose has, reach out. WE all need to practice awareness and give love when we can to help people who are feeling hopeless, and ask for love when we need a little light ourselves. Sometimes in our culture it is hard to ask for help. It can make us feel too vulnerable, but it is also natural to feel depleted from time to time. We are all in this together.  If you feel like you have no one to fill your cup, a yoga studio is always an accepting place where you will feel very positive energy. Never give up. 

Dreams Do Come True - A Photo of Me Just Got Published in Mantra Magazine!!

Each decision we make directly affects our future. Some impact us more than others. In the last year I have put a significant amount of time and effort into growing my social media through Instagram and Facebook.  This has been successful in many ways and sometimes it has met with frustrations. But feeling connected to a community is what is so beautiful. I have been so incredibly inspired by so many yogis, foodies, and photographers and have developed lasting friendships with people, many of whom I know only virtually.  

Last Fall I had an opportunity to travel to Washington & Oregon.  While I was there I took a significant leap of faith and experienced my first professional photo shoot with the talented Paul Garrett, from Stone Canyon Productions. Paul is a great example of an Instagram connection that happened to truly help me out in life. Turns out that one of those photos he so patiently took of me was just published in this month’s issue of Mantra Magazine, a nationally publicized magazine. 

I am truly honored and humbled to be a part of such a great publication and such a great Yoga Community. Many of my Instagram friends have great articles written about them in this edition, as well. So go pick one up and soak up the great knowledge. Dream really, really big and never give up hope! 

Look for my future blog post about the details of some of the articles in this issue of Mantra Magazine and let us know what your favorite topics are in this edition and what it is you want to learn more about. 

Namaste,

Libby
