God’s Delays are Not Always God’s Denials

The fact that over 60 people joined me for Rituals to Start the New Year in 5 degree weather last Friday night at The New York Open Center made me especially aware that we are all craving conscious community more than ever.

One of the questions that always seem to come up at this time is: What do I do when my goals do not manifest, as I want them to? What message is the Universe sending me? Do I take action or surrender to the will of Spirit?

Sages have shared the answer for centuries: There is a sweet spot between asserting your will and surrendering to God’s will. God’s delays are not always God’s denials, but sometimes they are.

No, it is not always easy to discern. No it is not always easy to do. Yes, it is possible with trust, faith, a strong spiritual practice and supportive community of people from multiple generations, ethnicities and backgrounds. You need to expand your network and be open to new ideas and ways of being. STEP OUT OF YOUR SQUARE.

With all the changes taking place in the world, look at yourself as an Olympic athlete in the game of life. Join the soul-lympics as my friend Allen Devalle calls it. And as all athletes know, you need coaching, support and consistency.

Life is a do-it-yourself project. The things you do and the choices you make today will build the foundation for your future. As Oprah said at the Golden Globes, “the time is up” for the old way of being in the world.

It is time for men and women to come together consciously to co-create the world that we desire to live in with mutual respect and compassion.

One of the things that has helped me tremendously is to pay attention to my inner guidance system. Here is a video to give you a simple exercise to open your intuition. CLICK HERE TO WATCH.

Barbara’s New Year’s Rituals to bring in Prosperity, Peace, Love and Joy

Countdown to 2018. I want to invite you all to take this time to reflect on 2017. We were all given the opportunity to see our individual and collective shadow; for many of us it was very uncomfortable and challenging, however, we are now at a turning point where we can refocus and make different choices for 2018. I suggest you do this slowly and with gentleness.

By ritually putting our dreams into the hand of Spirit we make it possible for something bigger and better to emerge while we move into greater alignment with the Universe. Being in community is where we draw the strength needed to effect real lasting change…our individual burdens lighten up as we come together, which is why I feel so passionately about my workshop, Vision 2018: Pivot Your Energy, Change Your Life. This year I will be doing one in NYC and one in Hawaii. To make it easier for you we are offering affordable and convenient payment plans.

The time for pushing is over

The time for allowing is NOW

As you get caught up in the routines and busy-ness of your life, you get lost in secondary choices and lose focus on your higher vision

Remember that the first 12 days of the year symbolically represent the entire year. Thus January 1st represents all of January, January 2nd represents all of February, and so on. Consciously intend for the best and take action aligned with this higher vision and watch it show up this year. If you find you are getting off track, simply stop, be gentle with yourself and move on. To help you do this, I am gifting you with my FREE  12 day Intention Intensive. Each day starting January 1st you will receive (via email) a FREE mp3 to guide you towards success, joy and health.

Barbara’s favorite Prosperity Ritual: Do this the first time you enter your home or office after Midnight on New Year’s Eve for prosperity. Also, be sure to wear new red underwear on New Year’s Day to bring in love. WATCH VIDEO HERE.

One more thing…Hatsuyume (初夢) – It is believed that the dream you have on the night of January 1st will tell your fortune for the upcoming year. In Japan, the night of December 31st was often passed without sleeping, thus the Hatsuyume was often the dream seen the night of January 1st. Pay attention to your dreams!

Your Time Is Truly Precious

Every year as I get close to celebrating my birthday (Nov 29th), I know that a gateway will open up to usher in the new energy that I need to align with so I can walk with my dreams. Each year is a new opportunity to truly own my power in an expanded way. And I appreciate the gifts that I am always given.

As I was meditating this morning, a memory of an old story popped into my head. Since I know that these ideas are God’s currency (as my friend Elizabeth Longo would say) I paid attention and would like to share it with you.

Imagine you had a bank account that deposited $86,400 each morning.The account carries over no balance from day to day, and every evening cancels whatever part of the amount you had failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every dollar each day I’m sure!

This is our personal bank account: Time. Every day we gain 86,400 seconds and every night it ends. You cannot borrow from today to add to tomorrow. Whatever you do not use is gone and you cannot get it back. You cannot take out a loan against it or give it to a friend or family member.

It is up to you how you spend it.

When the late Nadine Stair of Louisville, Kentucky was 85 years old, she was asked what she would do if she had her life to live over again.

“I’d make more mistakes next time,” she said. “I’d relax. I would limber up. I would be sillier than I have been on this trip. I would take fewer things seriously. I would take more chances. I would climb more mountains and swim more rivers. I would eat more ice cream and less beans. I would perhaps have more actual troubles, but I’d have fewer imaginary ones.”

“You see, I’m one of those people who live sensibly and sanely hour after hour, day after day. Oh, I’ve had my moments, and if I had to do it over again, I’d have more of them. In fact, I’d try to have nothing else. Just moments, one after another, instead of living so many years ahead of each day. I’ve been one of those people who never goes anywhere without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, and a raincoat. If I had to do it over again, I would travel lighter than I have. If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds and I would pick more daisies.”

My theme this year is living the AND…taking things lighter and making a bigger difference in the world, diving deep into life and playing full heartedly, teaching and learning,  leading and following, being independent and being part of a community. The time of the either/or is over. This is the time of the both/and.
