Happy 2016!
I feel so blessed at the wonder and magic 2015 brought me, and to share this space with you! I'm so grateful to share in the journey of life with such amazing and Beautiful Souls!
Once again we have arrived at a Shiny New Year!
2016 is feeling so magical to me! I'm happy to share that one of my intentions I set a few weeks ago for 2016 has already manifested and I almost missed it because it was so much better than I had envisioned. I had to step into MY TRUTH and Fully Say YES!! I wonder how many of us miss opportunities because we don't recognize them, and maybe don't say Yes!! More about that below!
Maybe you have made a few "resolutions" or intentions of your own. Sadly, statistics show that most resolutions made fall by the wayside by February. I wrote alot more about this in my Feb 2015 Newsletter that you might want to check out again here...it has more about my 2015 Word of the Year mandala, how to chose your WOTY as well as some great Manifesting Magic in it, and a great ‪ACUPRESSURE‬ point for ‪FOCUS‬ and ‪CONCENTRATION. As well there are a few tips on creating a Meditation Room or Sacred Space for yourself. I've recently spoke to several women who have stated this is on their list this year. If you'd like some help with any of this, message me and we can set up a time to chat!
Are You Fully Saying YES!!
“Life is either a great adventure or nothing.” - Helen Keller
 
I know many are setting intentions for 2016 right now.

But are you fully saying YES when the manifestation shows up? What if it shows up differently than you envisioned? What if it shows up much sooner than you'd thought it would? Will you recognize it? Will you fully be able to be that person to fully step into it, even though it showed up sooner and alot differently than you thought it would?

I recently had this happen...in a big way that asked me to step through some "discomfort" of sorts. Could I truly trust that it was "OK" to do this, to accept the manifestation?

As many of you know, I've been wanting to write my e-course "Treasure Your TaTas" on Breast Health for much of 2015. Firstly it turned out to be much bigger than I'd originally thought! It is now 9 modules!! I'm so excited! All good, right? But life is busy. I have amazing clients, I have a large home to care for, I love cooking healthy meals, I have a wonderful partner in my life who I adore spending time with, 2 Jack Russell Fur Babies who love their walks, I swim several times a week, and have been healing a frozen shoulder and working on a few other healing issues. A full and beautiful life, right? But somehow, writing is always left till last and just didn't get done. (A part of this also has to do with Stepping Deeper into My Truth....more on THAT below!)

So, not long ago I set an intention I would have more time to write in 2016. I would make enough in my business to hire help with cooking, cleaning, filing etc. Ya....that's what would happen!

But then an opportunity came up that would easily allow my partner and I to travel to Mexico for 2 weeks, and I was thrilled! Time to write each day I thought!! And heal my shoulder, and so much more. I was excited!

BUT THEN...an even bigger opportunity/adventure came up that could easily be added on to the first trip...we were asked to help sail a boat from Puerto Rico to Panama!! Wow!! Exciting!! More adventure with my Love, More time to write.....But......doubt started creeping in..."I couldn't be away from my (house) (clients) (business) (dogs) that long.", "What about my finances?", etc, etc, etc. You know what I'm talking about! How many times do we immediately step into the FEAR rather than the EXCITEMENT! And in doing so shut down that abundant flow from the Universe.

At first I didn't realize this opportunity was actually my intention manifesting!! It was so much bigger and better than I'd planned or imagined (The Universe kind of likes doing that! Just to give you an opportunity to uplevel!) I had to do a bit of growth to step into accepting it.
I will be writing more about all of this on my Blog on my new website, so make sure to watch for it! And stay tuned to follow this adventure!

Another part to this manifestation was the mandala I created to help manifest sailing and a sailboat! Did I mention the boat we are going to be sailing on is one that is on our shortlist of ideal boats? Hello sign from the Universe! Yup there is going to have to be a blog written to share that amazing-ness with you! In the meanwhile you can read a bit about it here.

I can tell you though, that AS SOON AS I SAID YES, lots of great stuff happened to support this decision!!

So where can YOU say YES!! more often in your life in 2016? And what kind of Magic might it lead to? How beautiful and different might life look in 2016 and beyond? Kind of fun to think about isn't it!?

“The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure.” - Joseph Campbell

Congruence, and Living My Truth

WHAT'S YOUR 2016 WORD OF THE YEAR (WOTY)?

My WOTY for 2016 is CONGRUENCE which has to do with Living and Speaking MY TRUTH and WHO I AM...from my SPIRIT and SOUL's point of view, rather than who I think I am.

This was confirmed for me very clearly as I was making my decision to Say Yes to the above opportunity. One of the tools I use to connect and communicate deeper with myself is Divination or Oracle Cards. The deck I used in this instance was the Wild Woman deck, and the card I drew was TRUTH....not just once, but twice!
This card was all about Speaking, Writing, Teaching and Living My Truth, because so many are waiting for it, but also staying True to my needs in the process. Also about how important it is to take off our "Super Hero" cape once in awhile to step deeper into Nourishment.
"Nourishment comes in many forms. Recognize these forms and be all that you want, and have everything you Desire. Live a FULL LIFE...not just for YOURSELF, but for Others and For The World. Show Yourself, Your Worth. Do not allow us to miss out on your qualities and abilities as then we would all miss out on what is truly a remarkable life filled with wonder, awe and significant impact."
I can't even begin to tell you how deeply these words resonated and touched my Soul, and made me realize how deeply important this trip, my writing, and being an example of possibility for creating a Beautiful Life was and is. I've been told before how inspiring my life is, and my Soul was asking me to take it up a notch. To be more CONGRUENT!
PS...I feel like this message may be relevant for many others than myself!

“The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.” - Oprah Winfrey

I really urge you to pick a word or theme for 2016 rather than just making resolutions or intentions! It has really been profound for me.
Last year's Word of the Year for me was "Immortal Treasures"-Gifts of the Soul. It was all about stepping more fully into the Gifts of my Soul! And WOW...so many beautiful things happened to take me there! Amazing Connections, Insights and Healing!
I created a WOTY Soul Mandalas for myself to meditate on throughout the year to assist me with this! It was so powerful for me, I will be creating one for 2016 too! You can read all about that mandala and see it here:
http://bit.ly/1MN7D1k

What's your Word of the Year for 2016? I'd love to hear!
Let's share the Magic with each other! You can share yours on my Akasha Bloom FB page....there is a post to share yours in the comments, or I have created a Private FB Group, Create Your Sacred Space, and would love to have you join me there!

 

Mandalas are energetic! They are an ancient art form that speaks to the Unconscious. The Unconscious mind makes up 85% of your mind power, and so is running your Life! To create change we must communicate to the Unconscious mind. The Unconscious Mind only understands and communicates in pictures and images.
Have you thought about having a mandala that speaks directly to YOUR UNCONSCIOUS created just for you? With your Word Of The Year for 2016 embedded in it?
Message me to get started!

This page on my new website talks more about mandalas and Core Values...another powerful tool for making 2016 YOUR BEST YEAR EVER. The same energy and process applies to WOTY mandalas! And I would love to create either for YOU!

Important...Time Sensitive:
So I am Saying Yes to this amazing opportunity, and in doing so creating a wonderful Sailing Adventure and Writing Sabbatical for myself. And I'll have lots of time to create some new mandalas too!
I will be away for 5 weeks! Yikes! I can barely believe it! I leave Jan 8th! I will return Feb 14th. I have a couple openings for acupressure sessions left this coming week, and then after that, my first day back doing sessions will be Tuesday, Feb 16th. So if you are wanting a session this week, or for the week I return please message me ASAP so I can reserve your spot!

Creating a Meditation "Room"

Do you have a meditation "room"...a space where you can go to find quiet space. A sacred space where you can go to find your true essence and be with your thoughts.
"Your Sacred Space is where you can find yourself again and again and again." -Joseph Campbell
It doesn't have to be an entire room...it could just be a comfy chair in a corner that you have made special for yourself. This may mean special cushions, books, candles and a journal for jotting down those great inspirations that come when we give them space. It may mean an area where you surround yourself with objects of beauty that make you feel peaceful and calm. It may be an area that you make beautiful and special just for you....to have a cup of tea each day. Maybe it is just one object that helps you find that calm amid the noise of a busy home.
What would you put into your sacred space? Here's some of my high vibe meditation mandala cushions to get your imagination going.
Maybe you could just add a metal mandala print to your bathroom, and take a few minutes to meditate upon it as you start your day!
Did you know that I work with the 5 Elements in my mandalas, and that many of my mandala prints and cushions can be used as Magical Feng Shui Cures as well.
Have fun with it! And stay tuned as I am planning a webinar or some kind of event with a wonderful Feng Shui consultant to go deeper into this. So many exciting plans for 2016!
Meditation Mandala Cushion
Acupressure Point to Enhance Focus and Motivation

Location: Two-thirds of the way up from the upper lip to the nose. Press slowly but firmly into your gum and breathe deeply. Do this for a couple of minutes. The effectiveness of this point often increases by pressing it firmly each day over a period of several weeks.

Creative Benefits:  Although this point is also good for improving memory and concentration, its magic lies in its ability to bring you back into both moment and focus. Whenever you have an idea but are unsure about it or have doubts, this point will gently bring you back into yourself both increasing your creativity, centring and grounding you, especially useful if feeling a little spaced out. It helps you let go of worries and any creative doubt. GV 26 can also be used to relieve fainting and dizziness.
