Do you ask for what you want?

I just watched this video, it’s a brilliant PR move and so incredible to even watch and feel the joy for these people.

You can watch this video here:

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/12/09/viral-airline-stages-magnificent-christmas-miracle-for-hundreds-of-lucky-passengers/

As I sobbed my way through, smiling and laughing I had another thought also.  This situation is so much like life.  Some of us expect great and powerful lives, others expect very little. And often we get what we ask for.  I’m gonna get deep here.  It’s one thing to casually throw out ‘dreams and wishes” and expect them, it’s a whole other thing to know in every fiber of your being that you are called to be a part of something, live somewhere, have things. You are worthy, you  are deserving.   When you focus on what you don’t have the energetic vibration you are putting out into the world is that of lack, not enough. You will attract that.

In applying this to my own life here is what my takeaways are:

1. I know that I’m being called to move our family somewhere else.  I love being near our families and friends but it’s as if chapter is closing and it’s no longer in alignment with my or Bruce’s calling and purpose.  No matter how much we are trying to convice ourselves to stay put, suck it up and that it’s safe and comforatble we know different.

2. It is really easy for me to go into my default way of thinking and curse the cold, dread going outside this time of year and focus on knowing the details of this calling.  Where are we supposed to move? How will we financially make a living there? What about the benefits we have here? What about the kids and their friends that they’ll miss. On and on.

3. In trusting the bigger picture it’s vital for us to do a handful of things:

     a. Visualize the feelings I feel when I think of being in the perfect place (for our family). Imagine everything working out, the jobs fall into place.

     b. Don’t get stuck in my perception of reality right now and all the things that appear to be conflicting.  Example – I will miss my siblings and their kids, our parents and grandparents are aging, does this make us selfish?  How is Bruce going to make what he makes now? He’ll lose his senority, benefits, etc.

     c. We must live our lives here in Minnesota with as much happiness, fun, and gratefullness as possible. Appreciate it, savor it. Knowing this won’t make us stuck here but it will put us in a vibrational match with the feelings we want to have. (Wherever we live.)

     d. Make room for miracles.  We have been de-cluttering. Asking ourselves of every item we own, “would we still want that if it meant we had to move it?”  many times the answer is no.  So it goes.  Lightening up is both literally making room for miracles and decluttering our thought process and spirit so we can spend less time cleaning, moving and walking around things that no longer serve our vision or life.   This also includes financial preparations; saving money to move, paying down things, doing fixes on the house to rent it or sell it.  Anything that will hold up the process when that place we are meant to be calls our name and steps forward.

4. Honor the knowing, not the ego.   I no longer feel the need to constantly explain why I feel called to move.  The biggest thing I looked at internally however is “am I running away from anything?”  I think a couple years ago when I wanted to move the answer was yes.  So I’ve stayed, worked through the muck, done lots of deep soul work, the repairing and understanding of relationships. I can say with certainty that we are making changes that are in complete alignment with why we have been put here on this planet, at this time.  It’s connecting more with ourselves, honoring ourselves and trusting.  Knowing it will fall into place when the time is right.

 

So back to the video, it also made me wonder – there is a guy who asks for socks and underwear. necessary parts of life. But do you think he was a little pissed when he saw the next family ask for a big screen tv (and get it)?  Do you think he kicked himself for not thinking bigger?  Not in a selfish, greedy way but maybe he needed a new dishwasher or something really valid.   Just a thought worth pondering.

WEBStndgBowTrust5x7

So it all comes down to this.   The universe, God, source, energy is asking you every day what you want.  And from a deep, spiritual, loving place you can stand up and claim what you need and want. But many of us never do.  We stay little, we don’t want to make waves or seem “different” or crazy.  So we don’t dig deep enough to find that place in ourselves that is peaceful and authentic.  We are so caught up in our stories. All the reasons why things can’t be.  We need to let go of those.  This can take moments or years, some people never will let go of all their story or victim mentality.  There are so many great coaches, speakers, pastors, online courses that can help us do this.  Some of the things I’ve done and I continue to do so that have helped me learn to listen and release the past:  I’ve cried, prayed, talked, meditated, had dreams, re-birthed (breathing technique), released blocks on a cellular level and pulled cords, re-lived emotions letting myself cry them out and re-enact them releasing their hold on me. I’ve worked with coaches, learned breathing techniques, found connection with people who are wise, supportive and loving. I create vision boards, lists of goals. Done acupuncture visit my chiropractor bi-weekly, this makes sure my body if functioning and the nerves are unblocked and my energy is flowing. I pray some more.  Then I make sure to sit and listen. Not to an external voice but an inner knowing that arises.   I also use my art and journaling as a release.

It sounds like work but I savor every one of those items on that list. Like a gift to myself. They feel good. Like coming home.

 

Wishing you peace and love!!

Fall updates and new announcements!

It’s been a year full of all sorts of changes so I wanted to take a few minutes and share a few new stores I’m in, where you can find my work and what new work I’m offering.  Plus I have a SUPER big announcement that I haven’t told anyone about yet. You’ll find that all the way at the bottom.  yep, I’m (not so subtly) sneaky like that.

At the end of July I ended my year at the studio, it was a really great time. I made a tough decision to listen to the inner voice telling me that even though it was great and parts I loved, it wasn’t a perfect fit.  I found myself producing and selling a lot of work, racing between home and the studio and yet somehow not any further ahead. I am learning to really appreciate that as much as I fight it, it’s when I quiet down and make myself sit in that silence for a bit that my best and deepest (most daring) ideas come to me.  2 days after moving out of the studio my family went on a 2 week road trip through Utah and out to Oregon and up to Washington and back through Montana. We did about 1/2 camping and 1/2 hotels. It was really great. Not only is the nature and site seeing incredible I am always amazed at how much it feeds my soul to take time away and be an observer. I let myself relax more, reserve judgement and just take it all in. I don’t think I’ve been on a vacation yet that didn’t change me and help me know myself better. Now with both the kids at school and preschool each day and after the changes I feel like I’m finding my groove again and hitting my stride.

NEW artwork, stores and more:

My music artwork is hanging on display until the end of the month at the Egg & I East restaurant in St. Paul (off Univ. and 280).

In a few weeks you’ll be able to start finding my Soulful Yoga artwork at the Living Waters Cafe. 12201 Minnetonka Blvd, Minnetonka, MN 55305

 

I have a few studios out east now carrying my Soulful Yoga series, you can also now find my prints, cards and some pallet artwork in Anoka, MN at the New Moon Metaphysical Store. They are great, and offer classes and more.

I have been expanding my small print selection.  These are small prints mounted into a 5″x7″ mat. They are ready to fit into a standard size frame that can be found at any store. People have been loving them to give as gifts and they are perfect to hang up around the office or a cubicle.  I have a few new selections on my Etsy page.

Harmony Project:

Lastly, I am excited to announce that I’ve hit the $2500 mark on my fundraising for my Israel trip!!  I thank each of you who have so generously donated and purchased bracelets from me the last 8 months.    I’m both trying to celebrate the moment and feel the gratitude and also know that I still have $7000 still to raise.  I have to admit that it is not in my comfort zone to feel so publicly vulnerable and at such risk to not reach my goal all while everyone is watching.  I am trusting that things will continue to come together and I know that I am meant to be over in Jerusalem next May.  I see such a need for what we’ll be doing over there. In fact I love it that I’m beginning to be abt le to use some of these same skills and perspective I’m learning for over there and apply them right here in my own town and in fact even my own family.  This entire journey is so beautifully teaching me and making me a better person.  I would love to ask you to take a look at all the bracelets I have on my website. I have gotten another 80+ in since I’ve shared before.  The earth tone brown seems to be the most popular this fall, there are just a few of those left.  You can view them by either color or style on the website. I will also have bracelets with me at each of the shows listed above.  You can see them here.

Sneak Peek to my new Soulful Yoga artwork series

Third Eye Chakra Artwork

I am so excited about my newest artwork series, it so reflects the personal journey I have been on and where I hope to go. I am a student learning the yoga lifestyle. How to be gentle with myself, how to stop forcing things to happen and sometimes just allow things to happen. This requires a faith that what’s meant to be will occur, a trusting and believing I’m am on the correct path with my souls purpose. I have studied each of the body’s chakras; did you know there are colors that tie in with each chakra? Or that different yoga poses not only increase circulation, stretch your body and quiet your mind but they also activate an awaking of certain chakras depending on the pose.  This fascinates me. As I have said before, I am on my own personal journey to being my best self.  I have made huge strides but most difficult one seems to be honoring my body. Respecting it with my time to exercise it, stretch it and appreciate it. I want to feel good from the inside out.  

Each week beginning in June I will be introducing one of my new artwork pieces from this series. Each piece has a back story, a chakra related to it and I am working on a full line of items to go with them. Greeting cards, prints, etc.  I’ll have links to those each week as well or you can save the link to my etsy site where they will all be posted: http://www.etsy.com/shop/noellerollinsart 

I hope you’ll take this journey with me as we together learn more about the body and mind connection, yoga, poses and chakras.  If you have people in your life that may be interested I’d love if you’d share this blog with them.  I will also have links, photos, etc on my facebook page: www.facebook.com/noellerollinsart
