YOUR SOUL STORY IS HUMANITY'S STORY

Posted on April 23, 2017 at 1:25 PM

Your current life is only a fraction of the energies you have experienced as a soul.


When viewed from higher consciousness, you open up to the fullness of your soul story and a broader understanding about who you are as a soul, as well as the energies you are experiencing in this incarnation.


 

You as a soul are composed of many stories, and through your life, the energies of those stories are activated with the intention of guiding you to higher levels of consciousness.


 

Surely somewhere along your path you have asked yourself:


"Why has my life unfolded in this way? Why do I experience certain themes, or repeating patterns, or ongoing relationship dynamics and lessons? Why are some emotions bigger for me, and yet not as prevalent for other people? Why do I carry specific dominant needs that other people in my family do not relate to?"


 

For example, if you have experienced a theme of betrayal or abandonment in your life, where did that energy begin? If you have felt deep fears around your emotional expression, how did that originate for you as a soul? If you have found yourself locked into many ego battles with others, what is being triggered within you that can be released now?


 

Or perhaps you have noticed a theme in your life around lower female or masculine relationships that you wish to inject greater consciousness into because you want more authentic connections with other people. Whatever energies and themes may be prevalent for you, you will find greater understanding to them in healing your soul imprints.

Conscious Books: A Guide For Your Soul's Growth

Posted on April 21, 2017 at 11:30 AM



Soul Love: Awakening Your Heart Centers is an inspiring guide on how to open up all energies of your heart to deeper layers of love. As you awaken to higher levels, you begin to experience it on many layers of your being: self-love, soul-love, and heart-love of yourself and all others in your life. Relationship perspectives change and evolve. Understanding of human nature shifts. Self-understanding expands.


The book is composed of four sections that focus on different steps to deeper levels of love. The adventure takes you to a meditative state to meet your soul, blend with it, activate soul-level love, and then broadcast it out to everyone in your world. 


Sanaya Roman channels this information from her longtime spirit companion, Orin, and shares the techniques with simplistic explanations. This is a great nightstand book because there are snippets of insightful information that relax the mind just before turning off the lights.Very calming, reassuring and (of course) loving concepts to connect with.


If you are new to the genre of channeling, or are seeking information from deeper levels of Divine Knowledge, this is a great selection for both beginners and anyone open to expanding their soul connection.


Hope you enjoy this one!

Now Registering! The Write Beach Retreat

Posted on April 6, 2017 at 10:10 AM

The Write Beach Retreat is now open for inspiration! Enjoy 5 days and 4 nights in a charming beachside hotel in Cocoa Beach, Florida as you take your writing career to the next level with deep-dive workshops + realistic directions + practical guidance for putting your unique brilliance on paper.


 

Especially beneficial for writers of the following genres:

Memoir | Non-Fiction | Spiritual/Inspiration


 

Write On!


 

"The funny thing about a writing career is that you can only plan so much of it. The high points come out of the blue; the low points seems to drag on longer than anticipated; and the inspired writing phases can pass in the blink of an eye.


 

Each of my 10 books came about through various inspirations and situations that I never planned or had mapped out. My first book, "The Art of Trapeze", took 5 years to write, and I dealt with rejection from literary agents and discouragement within myself. But once the book was finally complete and released, it took off and sold over 30,000 copies globally, hitting #2 on Amazon behind "12 Years A Slave". (Yes, a small part of me wanted to let those literary agents know about that. :) I then wrote 3 more books in one year, followed by 4 more books in 2 years.


 

It is a very exciting time to be a writer and to follow this path because there are an incredible amount of resources, strategies, and opportunities for you right now.


 

And your biggest responsibility through everything is to just keep showing up for yourself.


 

The Write Beach Retreat will support you no matter where you are in your process because it will be geared to what you are experiencing right now with your writing projects.


 

It's time to write on - and I would love to help you with whatever writing project is calling to you now."

Guided Meditation Works!

Posted on April 1, 2017 at 11:25 AM

I can still vividly remember how incredibly relaxed this guided meditation by Deepak Chopra made me feel.


 

It was 2005.

I was lying on a couch in Paris, completely wiped out.


My friend Trisha and I had been exploring the city, and we returned to her apartment in the 6th arrondissement to take a much needed break. We devoured baguette sandwiches, and couldn't muster the energy to do anything else for the afternoon - couch collapse!


 

Except my mind was still racing with way too many ideas and thoughts - know that feeling? Your body is telling you to relax, but you can't turn off your dang monkey mind.


 

My first generation iPod mini was stocked with only one guided meditation. There weren't a lot of options available in 2005, after all. I shuffled through a few songs and finally landed on this album choice. The easy words, soft chanting and soothing music felt like heaven as my mind finally slowed down and I drifted off into an awesome trance. That 20-minute nap felt like hours of sleep.


 

The best thing about guided meditations is that they work WITH your mind's activity at the beginning. You do not have to fight your thoughts, or struggle with all of the mental chatter, or try to force something to happen.


 

You simply listen.


 

Quality guided meditations work with your body's rhythm to calm down your energy, relax the mind, and take you deeper into your brain's delta and theta waves.


 

I wanted to share this with you because as we enter April, the energies get a bit WONKY. Yes, that is my official description for the month. :)


 

Now is a wonderful time to continue calming your mind and spirit whenever you feel off-balance or overwhelmed. You'll need supportive resources this month. Even if you've never tried meditation before, or you have and it didn't 'work' because you kept thinking (which is normal!), please give it another go. Obviously I strongly recommend these selections, especially starting at track 3.


 

I share with you why April is WONKY in this week's astrology and energy update right here.


Conscious Books: A Leader in New Consciousness

Posted on March 30, 2017 at 12:30 PM



Meet one of the women who inspired the incredible Louise Hay's lifetime work: Florence Scovel Shinn. Florence found her writing pen during her middle age years after a divorce, and by following her emerging voice she became a leader in the New Thought Movement in the 1920's. She boldly shared the importance of thoughts, spoken words, the cycles of success, and introduced the Law of Attraction as the energetic force behind our lives. Her metaphysical wisdom was radical at the time, and paved a new road for millions to walk down.


Her first bestseller was originally self-published in 1925 as The Game of Life and How to Play It. She went on to write two more books building on this "new age" wisdom. Florence often referenced the Bible, anecdotal real-life examples, and reiterated the importance of positive thought and affirmations as beacons of light for staying focused on your life dreams. Her advice is timeless and highly relevant to the spiritual consciousness that is emerging today. I just adore her insights, wisdom and motivational perspective.


If you're looking to dive into Florence's brilliance, this book is an excelleent resource. Works included in this timeless collection include her three books and another piece that was published in 1940 after her death:


  • The Game of Life and How to Play It
  • The Secret Door to Success
  • The Power of the Spoken Word
  • Your Word Is Your Wand


The book is scrolling in the sidebar on your right and links to a great price on Amazon if you're interested!


A few of my favorite words of wisdom from Florence:


"Every great work, every big accomplishment, has been brought into manifestation through holding to the vision, and, often just before the big achievement, comes apparent failure and discouragement."


"I have a perfect work

In a perfect way;

I give a perfect service

For perfect pay."


"My lamps are now filled with the oil of faith and fulfillment."


"All the good that is to be made manifest in man's life is already an accomplished fact in Divine mind, and is released through man's recognition, or spoken word, so he must be careful to decree that only the Divine Idea be made manifest, for often he decrees through his idle words, failure or misfortune."


Enjoy this classic! 

Molly

Pros and Cons of Traditional and Indie Publishing

Posted on March 3, 2017 at 11:55 AM

After going through the process of traditional publishing, I discovered a lot of freedom (and more work) with the self-publishing option.


Is it for you?


In this video on my new business website, learn more about the pros and cons of each approach, including:


- Having creative control

- An author's responsibility for all of the marketing and events

- Making 70% of the list price

- Pricing books on Amazon

- Constant innovation

- Support and best practices from other indie authors

- Access to all online distribution channels


There is no BEST approach - only what is best for YOU.

Conscious Books: Soul Journey to Love

Posted on February 28, 2017 at 9:15 AM



We all have busy lives these days with constant stimuli everywhere. Our calendars are full and our minds are fuller. It’s easy to be focused on what is happening “out there” and forget about the essential practice of connecting “in here.”


It's exactly because of those reasons that I enjoyed Soul Journey to Love: 100 Days to Inner Peace by Dr. Irene Cohen. I found each of the daily messages to be a beautiful exhale of loving reminders about our innate wisdom, peace, and love. Dr. Cohen guides the reader through 100 days of insights, processes, and prayers in a manner that I connected with because her writing style is digestible, straight-forward, and empowering. She was guided to stop reading other spiritual materials while writing this book in order for her true inner voice to be heard more fully.


Reading a chapter a day is not a new literary concept, but the wisdom and reference to A Course in Miracles, coupled with Dr. Cohen's inspiring messages, makes this resource special. Some daily insights resonated with me strongly and I referenced them a few times. It turned out to be an easy book to pick up and flip through since most passages are only a page long.


The book is divided into three parts with progression of knowledge from general instructions, to more insights about God and Universal mind, and then to lyrical poems and passages. 


For practical purposes, Soul Journey to Love is an excellent nightstand read before going to bed, upon waking in the morning, or as a companion during lunchtime. It doesn't require a lot of time or a big commitment as if you’re starting another book. It’s simply a beautiful supplement to the day’s activities and never-ending to-do list.


Finding time to have a daily practice is becoming more important in our busy lives and this guide is a great place to start – or continue – that intention.

 


Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book with the intention of sharing a review with you. The above thoughts and opinions are my own and I don't receive any type of compensation based on whether or not you purchase it. I only share books and products I think you will value and find beneficial to your journey.
