A Little Birdy Told Me: A Story of Pure Love Through a Toucan

I have always loved the toucans here in Costa Rica. We raised three since they were just days old and without feathers. They eventually returned to the wild where they belong. We had another toucan, Cassidy, who followed me around, hopping from place to place. But there was something different when I came back this time. I loved them even MORE.

I was so drawn to them and was glad it was the time of year that the palms have the fruits they like to eat so they were around a lot. I told them how much I loved them, I talked to them and I even made a video called I LOVE TOUCANS. I was showering the toucans with my love and appreciation for them.

Not too surprisingly then, one day last week a guy walked up here with a toucan. When we appreciate and love something so much, the Universe brings us more of it. It took me about 30 seconds to even realize he was holding one as he had it under one arm and the toucan was pretty much limp.

“Let’s go up to the kitchen, I have some papaya and see if he will eat,” I told him. The toucan practically attacked the papaya which was a good sign. He was still wanting to eat.  I asked the guy what he was planning to do with the toucan and he told me he was going to bring it home to his mom to take care of. His house was still a half hour walk more. I said, “Please let me take care of him.” And he agreed.

I cut up some more papaya and brought it and the toucan to my room.  He was soaking wet, cold, shaking, and weak.  I put him on a fleece blanket and let him rest. I marveled at how love and appreciation of these beautiful animals brought one to me. As my friend Kidest said, "It's all that love you've been oozing that brought one to your doorstep."  YES!!! Love and appreciation CREATE!!  Love and appreciation brings those things that we love and appreciate right to our doorstep! What a beautiful, wonderful world!!

The toucan, whom I named Timook, could hardly stand, and he was so cold and wet that I ended up wrapping him up in the fleece blanket and holding him to my chest. I closed my eyes and called on St. Francis whom is my partner when it comes to animals. I felt St. Francis put his hands on mine and then the most amazing thing happened. I saw this flood of white light open up above us and wrap around us. We were showered and wrapped in this light and I don’t really have the words to exactly describe the feeling, but I can say it was the purest love I have ever felt. It was the PURE LOVE of GOD. It was warm and bright and complete and intense and so very fulfilling.

This deepened my ability to let Source/God/Love flow THROUGH ME. I did not have to do a thing, I didn’t have to “try” to heal or try to do anything. I just got out of the way, emptied my mind and let it FLOW THROUGH.

Synchronistically, my beautiful friend, Kelly K. Brown, whom I always seem to be in sync with, posted an Abraham-Hicks quote that helped me to find the words:

It was so much more love than she’d ever felt that she didn’t know what she was feeling.
It was being hugged from the inside, out. It was cellular love.
It was a love so thorough, so complete, so wrapped through her that she thought she was having a heart attack!
It was love that was so pervasive she didn’t know what to do with it. She couldn’t describe it, she couldn’t label it, she couldn’t contain it. It was bigger than she was consciously, and vibrationally, ready even to endure; a love so great she couldn’t quantify it or understand it.
And in time, little by little by little, she and so many others of you have raised your vibration until you feel on a very constant basis that Love wrapping through you.

THAT describes what I was feeling. It didn’t end when the light faded either. Anytime I held or put my attention on Timook, that wave of LOVE washed over and wrapped around me.

Timook was soaking in this energy. Toucans are usually very skittish with humans and can do some damage with that big, long beak… and Timook was old enough to have the serrated edges that helps them to rip apart their food. But he made no moves to attack me, I could see that he totally trusted me. In fact when I cuddled him up to me and he put his beak down on my shoulder, tears of pure joy/love/connection streamed down my face.

Timook seemed to be getting stronger and even hopped around my bed a little bit. He ate some papaya and watermelon throughout the day, sometimes from my hand and sometimes he even took some himself.

I had a dilemma of what to do at nighttime. I couldn’t allow my dog and cat to be in the room if Timook was free because although they had pretty much not shown any interest so far, a fluttering, flying toucan would be too much for their instincts to resist. So I put the dog and cat out. The dog whined, the cat scratched at the door. It was going to be a long night. I tried to wrap him up and put him in a box, but he was much too energetic for that. He kept popping his beak out and then wiggled himself free and stood on the edge of the box. Hmmm, this wouldn't do. But then I had an idea… I wondered if Timook was strong enough to perch on a rod, a shower curtain rod to be exact. I brought him into the bathroom and sure enough, he was able to stand and seemed happy to be able to perch there for the night. My problem was solved. I was able to shut the bathroom door, let the dog and cat in and everyone was safe and happy for the night.

I checked in on Timook several times to make sure he was okay. The last time I checked, he was in full Toucan sleeping form… tail up, head turned 180 degrees and his beak resting on his back. He was getting stronger!

In the morning Timook seemed to be a little weaker than the night before. I heard him fall off the shower curtain rod perch and I went and got him. He really wanted to be by my side and anytime I went into the bathroom, he would hop to the edge of the bed and try to look in. When I’d leave my room, I’d put him on the top of a wooden chair and he’d turn his head, watching me walk out and would watch me through the screen as I walked across the balcony. I spent as much time with him as possible as we both loved the energy.

Timook ate a bit during the day, but not as much as the day before. I was starting to get a little concerned that he was getting weaker. I decided that the next day that I would call the wonderful bird vet that I met through my macaws and other toucans and see if I could send Timook to San Jose on the airplane to get veterinary care.

As the day and evening wore on, it was obvious that Timook was getting worse and probably wouldn’t make it. He couldn’t stand on the chair let alone the shower curtain rod. I was going to have to stay up with him as I didn’t want him to die alone, nor did I want to wake up with a dead bird next to me.

Timook alternated between laying perfectly still to his body jerking around. He placed himself right up next to me, with is beak under my arm. I stroked him and spoke words of love… and around 1:00 am, he left his body.  I felt his spirit go right THROUGH ME.

I felt both relieved that he wouldn’t have to suffer and sad. We had bonded so much in these two days together, experienced the BIG LOVE of Pure Source Energy together.  We had a very special bond indeed.

I gently placed his body in a box and put him on my altar. The next morning, as I was sitting on my bed, a younger toucan landed on the thick vine right outside my door. I had never seen a toucan land there before.  He was looking right into my room… right at ME!! He looked over at the box where Timook’s body lay and then back at me. I heard Timook speak to me:

“Yes I see the body there, but I am not there. I am here in this toucan and everywhere, in everything. That love that you felt with me is in every single thing, it is the Love Particle that permeates and creates ALL that Is. Thank you, Sierra, on behalf of all the toucans. You are one of us. You are one with us.”

During the day, several toucans visited, hanging right next to my room, looking in at me, thanking me, showing me that Timook lived on.  I no longer felt sad. I realized that Timook did not come to me to be healed. He came to me to give back the love that I had been giving the toucans and to allow me to experience that Pure Source Love wrapping around me that we feel when we die… but we don’t have to die to feel it!! I am very much alive and I felt it and now have access to it at any time.

The love that Timook brought me was to bring me up to speed with the new higher frequencies of love that now exist. Whether you believe that 11/11 opened up new vortexes, stargates or whatever, the truth is that that many people focusing on a new reality, that many people focusing on Love shifted the vibration of the planet to a new higher frequency.  It was a gift beyond measure.

My friends and I were posting people’s Facebook statuses to each other, all of them about LOVE, commenting on the new, higher frequency we all felt. There was a big wave of LOVE going across the planet, and I know that Timook took me along the crest, on the leading edge of the wave of LOVE.

Thank you, Timook. You are forever in my heart and will never be forgotten. I feel you and the LOVE that we shared all around me.  Wrapped in Love. Pure Source Love.

It just doesn’t get any more delicious than that!

My time in Costa Rica has been quite the adventure so far… and I have grown and expanded so much already in the short time I have been here.  Here’s my story…

For over 12 years I told everyone that I would never leave Costa Rica and that I would never go back to the States. I just couldn’t see it. This was home, this was the REAL life, this is where I wanted to be and couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. Then, all in one week, actually in one day, I knew I had to leave. I felt a calling so strong to go back to the States for a while and I knew I had to trust it and in fact couldn’t ignore it. I couldn’t believe it myself, but once I made the decision, I couldn’t get out of here fast enough.  I packed my bags and figured I’d be gone two months or so. I was gone almost two years.

I came back to visit several times, but never felt that it was time to move back, nor did I want to. I entered into talks with a man who wanted to lease my property for a marine research center. It seemed like a great solution for now. I didn’t want to be here, but I didn’t want to sell either as I couldn’t imagine letting this property go, knowing some day I’d want to be here again. 

The man with the marine research center came in August and after a short time together, I knew it wouldn’t work out. On this trip I knew it was time for me to come back for a while and get things in order, including getting the electricity installed. As soon as I got back to the States, I gave notice at my place in San Diego, put my things in storage, brought my cat to my parents and fly back to Costa Rica.  I knew it was time to reconnect with the property, and people started popping up all over that wanted to be a part of the community and wellness center here. The Universe was speaking strongly and I could not ignore it.

The day before I was coming down to Drake Bay by taxi, there was a severe weather warning, a hurricane that would not be a direct hit (we never get hurricanes here, just the tail of the weather) but would mess things up pretty bad. Me and my sisters worked on that one and the day I came down, the hurricane took a turn and the drive and boat ride down was without any rain… it started to rain a half hour after we got all my stuff up the hill. Yay!

I felt in control… but not for long.

My property was a mess. The person I had taking care of the property, a friend whom I was paying, had not done anything to keep it up. I come to find out that he pretty much just stayed in his cabin all day and had developed a cocaine habit. GREAT.

I hired a few guys and we started to clean up the gardens which because they were so overgrown, so wild, so intertwined that really the only thing to do was to cut it all down. I told them to try to save some of the flowers, but they went through, a machete in each hand and in one day, the center of the property, where I had planted over 32 species of heliconias, had been cut to the ground. I cried… they laughed at me…

For a couple of days I used the garden being cut down as anger therapy. I was upset with the person I had been paying to keep up the property who had not done his job.  So every time I heard the crack of the machete cutting down another plant, I imagined it was hitting Dan upside the head. It really helped me release the anger, I ended up laughing and I am sure Dan had a headache for a day or two. That’ll show him!! Tee hee.

As I let my anger go, knowing somehow this was for the higher good, it had to be, I took a stroll around the now bare center of my property… and I felt this JOY coming from the garden.

“What are you so happy about?”  I asked, surprised at what I was receiving.

“Sierra, while we needed to be overgrown to protect the energy while you were gone and we now feel the JOY of release and rebirth! We were safe in our cocoon and it’s time to transform. You will see how fast the garden comes back, bigger and stronger than before. Do not cry for us… you KNOW that the rainforest is all about regeneration and rebirth… we feel open and freeeeeeeeeee! All is Well!!  And you know it.”

Yup, I knew that everything was happening for a reason even in my anger… but I had to let myself feel the anger so that I could move through it. Allowing ourselves to be human is a good thing… but what the garden told me gave me deep relief and the final release of my anger.

Okay, so the garden didn’t mind being cut down and in fact expressed Joy about it. Cool.  But I was concerned about the several species of hummingbirds that make my garden home.  I watched as they furiously flew through the previously dense garden, even looking on the ground for flowers… I connected with the hummingbird energy and I told them that I was going to keep part of the garden by the beach untouched and some other flowering bushes that they like until the rest had grown back with some flowers. I asked if that was enough, that I wanted to take care of them.

I opened my eyes and one of my favorite hummingbirds, the white tailed hummingbird with the super long tail, flew right up to me and then circled me three times. We were good. I felt relieved and happy and from that moment on released my pain at watching acres of flowers and plants being cut to the ground. I joined in the Joy and even started telling the boys to cut even more than I had planned. I am actually enjoying being able to see the ocean from the back of the property and you can see the beach much better from the cabins. It feels open and airy and good.


For the past 14 years we have run off a large 51k generator that could run a small city. Of course this meant hauling in diesel by boat, and the guys carrying it up the hill. About a year ago, my side of the bay got electricity but because I was not here, it never got turned on.  Once I knew I was coming back, I got everything all set up, the meter pole, ordered the transformer, etc. When I got here, the electricity was all set up and ready to go, the electricity company just had to come out and turn it on. They drive for two and a half hours into Drake Bay from Puerto Jimenez and then we bring them over across the bay by boat. In all, it is a six hour deal for them… and to come out for just one person… well, I could only use my manifesting powers to get them to come out quick.  Surprisingly, they called to say they would come out on the Tuesday after I arrived… but I woke up to pouring rain and knew they wouldn’t be coming. The next day they couldn’t come because of other obligations, and besides, it continued to pour rain.

“But but but… I thought I would set the record for the fastest service by the electric company in Costa Rica history!!”  I said to the Universe. “I even posted on my Facebook page that the electricity was coming in record speed? What’s the deal?”

I hear laughter. “Oh dear, Sierra. You KNOW the electricity will come at the exact perfect time, for your highest good. All is in divine order and timing.”

“But, but, but… I am a powerful creator…  Why can’t I make the rain stop? I’m great with weather!!! Why can’t I get these guys to come out here? What is the hold up? I thought I would create this very quickly!!!”

Silence.  Hmmmm.


In the meantime, I had left my boat out in that tail of the hurricane weather thinking they would come any day and not wanting to pull it out of the water. I kept checking in with my intuition… and my cards… I felt it was okay to leave it in the water and I got the “Protection” card that says You, your loved ones and your possessions are safe and protected.”  Cool!

I woke up Wednesday morning to find that in the very high and rough seas, my boat had flipped over and was now floating upside down in the water, the engine under water.  I pulled a card. I got the Protection card again. WTF Universe??? How was this protection??? Surely my Magical Mermaids and Dolphins cards were broken!! 

But then I got a knowing that said that the motor had not been completely fixed right and that if we had taken the boat out to see dolphins, or were coming through the river mouth or somewhere, something worse would have happened. 

I called my favorite psychic sister, Tracy, who did a reading for me. She confirmed what I had gotten, that there would have been an electrical fire or some other something that would have been much worse. I asked what was up with me “almost” getting electricity on Tuesday and that I got the message that it was okay to leave my boat in the water when it wasn’t. “Because if you knew the electricity company wasn’t coming, you would have taken your boat out of the water and it wouldn’t have sunk. It happened for the reason of safety that we spoke of, and even more than that, more than you can ever know.”   We talked about the grand unfolding of everything.  I was feeling better. I shifted quickly.

I KNEW there was a higher reason for this, even if I never got to know what it was. 

I made some phone calls and friends came with a shrimp boat and used the pulley to turn the boat over and we towed it into town and to the mechanic.  Luckily, the battery had disconnected when the boat tipped and so the computer and electronics were okay, and now my motor was getting a total clean out. Okay, Okay, Universe. I totally trust that this was for the highest good. I really do.

When I got my boat back, it was sounding and running better than ever. Of course, the engine had been totally cleaned out! And I didn’t even have to pay for it because my mechanic owes me money. But that’s another story for another time…


Another strange thing that happened was with my pendulum. I have a pendulum that is a pointed Lumerian crystal, the crystal of TRUTH. I like to play with it, asking different questions and brought it with me. But it was doing really weird things here. I would ask a question and it would pause, perfectly still for at least 30 seconds which it never does, it always goes right into the answer… and I could feel the sigh… “Sierra, are you going to ask that same question again???” 

I was like “What? Don’t question my questions, you are a pendulum, answer me!!”  And it would oblige… but then after my question was answered it would go into a swinging vortex circle that was so strong and so beyond my control that if I had let the chain go, it would have gone flying at least 50 feet. I was like WHOA, should I be digging for treasure under my cabin or what???  It was really wild, really, really powerful.  It did that every time.

One night, the chain which was attached to the crystal by a flat piece and super glue was gone. I looked for it but could not find it… and knew I’d find it in the morning.  I woke up and saw it on the floor across the room, somewhere I had not walked and had no idea how it got there… but then I got distracted and the next time I looked over, it was not there. I looked around for it again and saw it by the door and would pick it up in a few minutes… and when I looked again it was GONE AGAIN!! I looked all over for it, swept my whole room, looked outside on the deck, on the ground. It is just completely and totally GONE.

Of course, I could glue another string onto it, some how rig it up, but I think it is quite obvious that my pendulum wants a break from me asking the same questions over and over… I think it thinks it’s time I just GET IT!!  Hmmmmmm.


So the days went by and it either rained or the electricity people were busy. I kinda started to get used to it.  I’d send my computer with my neighbor who was working for me to charge at his house… two hours to charge gave me about an hour of use. Or I’d go to my other neighbors and sit there and work for a couple of hours so that I didn’t get too far behind.  I was surviving and trusting in the perfect timing of the electricity. I knew that there was something I needed to do, something needed to happen for the electricity to get here. 

At night, once the computer battery wore out, I would listen to my Ipod.  I have so much stuff on my Ipod that I’ve never even listened to, so it was great to catch up on some of them.  I’d fall asleep listening to a meditation.  I was so busy during the day in the garden and cleaning up that I really didn’t mind not being able to get online so much… it would have been a distraction anyway. 

When I would get impatient, I would just laugh at my human self because my higher self knew all was in diving timing and orchestration.  Through it all; the garden, the electricity, the boat flipping, I always had a good grasp on the broader perspective. I have become a master shifter, able to make big shifts in a single bound. I was proud of myself on how I was handling it all. First “Oh shit” then quickly “Oh! Shift!”  I was living it.


On the following Tuesday, a week after the first time the electric company was supposed to come out and twelve days after I had arrived, I sat at my neighbors and downloaded some mp3’s that my Align & Fly sisters had recorded. I was looking forward to listening to them that night; I was missing connecting with them on a daily basis.  I came home and plugged in my Ipod like I have hundreds of times and this time, without warning, my computer erased the entire contents of my Ipod. There would be no listening to the anticipated mp3’s that night.

I started to laugh, like what else could I do, and said “Okay, Universe, Okay property, WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME????”

I KNEW there was a reason for this; I knew the property wanted me to hear a message.  I had a vision pop into my head of that scene from the Wizard of Oz when the wicked witch writes SURRENDER DOROTHY in the sky with her broom. SURRENDER SIERRA. But to what? I never have really liked that word “surrender” any way, it felt like “giving up and giving in” to me. But Surrender was the word of the day.

I took my camera and went down to the beach where the guys were cutting hibiscus plants.  “Hey look at that snake!”  said David. I turned and there was a beautiful green garden snake… a big one too, he was probably three feet at least from head to tip of his tail.  He was garden green on his body, but his head was more of a florescent green, with a black strip on each side of his head. I turned on my camera, took two blurry photos (me and my camera are having issues) and the batteries died. 

OK OK OK Universe, no Ipod, no camera. I get it, I get it. The snake turned to look directly at me, but not just look at me, he INTENSELY held his gaze. “What’s up, Mr. Snake?” I asked. “Come with me on a journey,”  he invited. “Ummm, dude, I have my worker guys right here, there is no way I can go on a shamanic journey with you right now, they already think I’m crazy!”

“I will wait,”  he answered and at that, turned back to the side but did not move his body.. 

It was almost time for my guys to get off work so I just made myself look busy and thought about the book I had just finished reading the night before, The Shamanic Way of the Bee. I have long had a thing going on with bees and now bees tie into my Align and Fly Girlz group in so many ways. Several of us are reading the book and it’s a fascinating story of along the lines of the Carlos Castaneda of bees. I wondered what Mr. Snake had in mind.

The guys left and I went back over to the snake. He immediately turned back to me with that intense stare. “Okay. There is something I want to show you. Plant your feet firmly in the ground and hold my gaze.”   I did as I was told. Everything else became very blurry except this tunnel vision between me and the snake. I knew the ocean was there, I knew the trees were there, but I could not see them, it was just this intense connection between me and the snake. As I held his gaze, it felt as if someone was simultaneously gently pushing me from behind and pulling me forward. My feet were planted on the ground, but the rest of my body was being pulled into the snake. I almost fell over and had to put my foot forward to stop myself. I planted my feet again and stared at the snake. He did it again… my body uncontrollably went forward towards him. He was snake charming me!!! He was pulling me into his energy field!!

I felt him also giving me a message but I was not getting it.

“Stop trying, Sierra, and just do it! Just hear me!”   We continued to stare at each other and nothing else existed in the world except me and the snake. And he continued to pull me forward.  “How can you have the power to move me like that?”  I asked. 

“You are not in control of everything, Sierra,”  he said matter of factly.

“Say what?”  I said.

“Some things are beyond your control,”  he answered. 

“If you say so, Mr. Snake.  By the way, what is your name?”

“Sir Vladmir,”  he responded.

“Seriously?”   I relate the name Vladmir to someone I am not fond of.

“Not THAT Vladmir!!!”  Snakes have a very regal and slow way of talking and it was funny to hear him say it like that. “Just remember, there are forces more powerful than you.”

“Okay, I’ll remember that.”   At that he turned his head once again to the side and I was dismissed.  I thanked him for a most trippy interaction.  So we had The Wizard of Oz and Alice and Wonderland themes going on… hmmmm… I am so not in Kansas anymore.


I came back to my room and called my sista, Bethie, and told her all that was going on. First my Ipod erased, then I met a snake and my camera died, then he took me on this shamanic crazy journey and the property has this message for me and everyone has a message for me and I am not getting it because I still don’t have electricity!!!! I asked her to connect with the Girlz on Skype and tell them what was going on and to ask what they think the message was.

Bethie also felt that the property wanted to know that I would still take the time to connect even after I had electricity. I thought about it and she was right.  I had to let the property know that I would not be lost to cyberspace once the electricity was on. I would still take the time to connect on a daily basis.

I walked through the gardens in a kind of walking meditation. I told the property that I promised that I would still stay connected no matter what. I was sending out powerful waves of love.

I heard, “Sierra, you are very powerful, but we are more powerful. There are forces at work much greater than you. Yes, you are good with the weather, and you can control certain aspects… but sometimes there are reasons that you do not understand, higher reasons, orchestration by divine intelligence why things don’t happen the way you think they should. If your electricity was turned on right away, you would not have connected so deeply and quickly again with property. You would have been preoccupied. We needed you during this time, we needed you completely present to the energy here. It was our re-bonding time.”

“You and your friends are powerful creators, there is no doubt. But you have to surrender to the fact that sometimes things will not go the way you planned… and they will go better if you trust and allow the unfolding without resistance.  Everything is always happening for your highest good and you can relax in that and trust it, or you can fight it all the way.  Easy or hard, it’s your choice.”

At first I felt a little miffed, like I had been demoted from my status as the powerful creator of my reality. But then I felt the wave of relief and joy. I don’t have to do this alone!! I don’t have to be the be all end all super creator. I get to CO-create with the super intelligent divine energy that creates worlds!! I get to decide what I want and not have to worry about the how and the when and all the details. Source will work it out and I just remember that it’s all happening perfectly. And I like that! I like that A LOT!!

We can say we are God and we are in the sense that we are a physical extension of that non physical energy. But we still have a foot in the physical (and volunteered to do it). We are the agents of Source, we are the leading edge creators who came to bounce around in the physical and expand thought to places it has not gone before, to feel and experience and create, but there is a force and a power higher and so much more intelligent that orchestrates the whole divine orchestration of perfection that is the highest outcome for all concerned. We, in our human state just can’t do that. We can access and tap into that knowledge and live from that place. We can follow the guidance from our higher self and make things easy for ourselves. We can be in the closest State possible and that is in Love and Appreciation… and there will always be a Force greater and stronger than us. And that lets us off the hook!!! 


Just when I thought I already knew all that, I had to learn it again, on a deeper level. I’ve come to realize that we really do keep learning the same lessons again and again, that is part of being human… but we keep getting it on new and deeper levels that bring us closer to our Source and Who We Really Are.

I felt the energy shift. I had gotten the lesson. Again. From a new, higher place and perspective. Let Go. Surrender. Allow. Trust. All is Well. Always. All Ways.

I walked up to the kitchen and opened the doors. A Morpho Butterfly was stuck inside. The Morpho Butterfly, to me, is the ultimate symbol of transformation… from a big brown caterpillar to a big, bright blue butterfly. I use it in my logo and on my website. I smiled at this confirmation from the Universe that my lesson had been learned. I LOVE LOVE LOVE how the Universe speaks to me through nature!!!

I freed the Morpho Butterfly and the transformation was complete. As I watched it fly away, I knew that I was not the same. I was MORE. I felt relief, release and intense love and joy.

If the Morpho Butterfly was not enough confirmation that I had gotten the message, not even five minutes later, as I was still walking back from the kitchen, the electric company called. They would be here at 7:30 the next morning!! Imagine that!!!

I called Bethie back and told her the message I had gotten and about the Morpho Butterfly and the electricity coming the next day. She told me all what the Girlz had said… and at the same time I was walking through the garden, they were writing the same messages on Skype that I was receiving from the property. What a blessing to be so deeply connected with my sisters!

For the first time since I had arrived, my neighbor didn’t return my charged computer to me. No Ipod, no computer. Just me and the jungle all night long. They wanted me all to themselves on this last night of no electricity and no internet, a night of deep connection before the big change.

As I fell asleep, I felt the jungle wrap me up in a cocoon, much like the one they showed me they had been in while I was gone.

There is no place like home.

Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill: A Message from the Dolphins and Whales


For weeks now, I have watched the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico get worse and worse. I kept trying to stay in joy, in my “all is well” belief, seeing things through the eyes of Source. But as I saw my beloved ocean, dolphins, whales, sea turtles, the coast get covered in an ever increasing oil slick, I felt my thoughts turn into a black, oily, suffocating mess. Finally, yesterday, I let it all out. I allowed myself to get REALLY angry. I cried on and off all morning. I felt powerless, I felt the pain and anguish and frustration. I let it flow. I posted to a few friends of mine on Facebook, and through them and a few of my sistas, I began to find better feeling thoughts.

Even through my darkest anger, I was able to see and feel the higher part of me, the part that knows all is well, but I couldn’t quite close the gap between us. By the end of the day, I felt much better and was quickly closing the gap.

This morning I felt a message coming through from the dolphins and whales, so I sat down to listen. I started off by asking them: “I believe I am the creator of my reality… so tell me, how did I create this?”

Sierra, you asked for this when you asked for alternative energy and to clean up the political arena. Did you think that would happen without an event like this? The asking was so big, so strong, from so many, that only a big event like this could answer the asking.

We love you so much, and we will be fine, our species will continue. You cry for our bodies, but you know you can connect with us telepathically anytime. They are just that, bodies, our vessels in the physical. And while we know you and others like to see us in the physical, our non physical connection is even stronger. And our species will survive. We will come back in even greater numbers in the new world.

It will come back, new and better than before, like a forest after a forest fire. When the smoke clears, new life will appear. Yes, things will never be the same. They will be different. It will be a constant reminder of what you never want to go back to.

The power for change lies with the American consumer, the buyers…. Do not forget that the powers that be are dependent on YOU and your buying dollar. You, and your friends, really are the ones with the power. It is an illusion that it is any other way. They just want you to believe that. You must demand alternatives and you can do that with the power and energy of money. This is really a case of putting your money where your mouth is. The people will come together like never before.

Yes, many of us will die, there will be much more than now, this IS going to get worse, but you know that there is no death. We are eternal. We know this is for a higher good. We understand. And many of us are already on the move to other places; the word is out through the Cetacean Communication Network (CCN) our very own CNN. (I hear laughter). We lived here long before the humans and they cannot destroy us. We have safe havens to go to where you will never find us.

We applaud you, Sierra for allowing yourself to get angry. As our friend Joe Noonan said, anger is good to clean out the pipes. Do you see what a clear channel you are now that you have acknowledged your feelings of anger, let them run through, and move past them? This event will cause a lot of anger. And it is very good as it is through the anger that change will come. It is through the anger that new desires are born.

Do not doubt the power of creation. Do not doubt the power of many focusing together for a common goal. Do you see how through your tears and getting really mad you sent out all those rockets of desires for something new? Do you see how through the passion of so many; the anger, the frustration, that a powerful desire for a new world is being asked for in a very powerful way? This is the power of creation at work. Through the catastrophe comes the powerful new desires; the creation of something new. It was time, it is time. This is what you have been waiting for. A new world. The time is now.

You must not focus on dead and dying bodies. This is focusing on the problem and focusing on that will bring more of it. We know this is very hard for we know that you and your friends love us. And we love you. But you MUST focus on what this catastrophe caused you all to desire. You MUST focus on the solutions. You must focus on alternative energy, on transparent politics, a new world order of the best kind. You all have been asking for this for so long, can’t you see? This is what you have been waiting for!

A new world awaits. What do you want to see in your new world? Therein lies the focus.

We love you, we love you all. All is well.

Be Unlimited... Notes from my Higher Self

I wrote this a couple of years ago, but I just came across it again and felt inspired to share it now:

I have shared with some of you how I have been feeling since 08-08-08. I knew it was a day of openings, of activations, of higher connectedness, a shift in consciousness. But I really had no idea how it would affect me so much. On that day and since then, I have been feeling incredibly high, incredibly connected to ALL THAT IS, a whole new level of BEing. I am loving it. On that day I wrote a rampage about how I was feeling. The next day I began to have some incredible experiences and synchronicities that are beyond what has happened before. Things are flowing. Things are different. I can really feel the shift in energy. I feel so connected! It is amazing.

So, I was excited to get out on the water today. I have some of my best conversations with my Higher Self while on the water. No computers, no animals wanting my attention, just me, the water and my inner being. The conversation beginsL

"I'm heeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrre!" I tell them.

We feel you, Sierra, we feel your high vibe, your new stronger connection. And we want to help you take it further.

"Oh Goody, BRING IT ON!!",  I say.

With this shift in energies and consciousness that has now happened, everything is moving even faster than before. The synchronicities, psychic experiences, the connections with others will become, and are becoming, a part of every day life. Just HOW IT IS NOW. There are opportunities for growth and expansion like never before. It is now more important than ever to control your thoughts, to only think about what you want. The gates are wide open (they literally show me gates with doors wide open, big crystal gates with black iron doors). It is easier than ever to manifest what you want, to connect to Source, to become WHO YOU REALLY ARE. Without Limitations. You just have to walk through the gates. But in order to do that, you have to leave behind the remaining doubts, fears, self sabatoge, and judgments of others. Now more than ever, it is the time to See Through the Eyes of Source.

Okay, I want to do that. I am already doing that more and more. Especially now, these last few days. How do I go further now?

Each and every day, do something that you wouldn't have done before. IT'S TIME TO STEP COMPLETELY OUT OF THE BOX. UNLIMITED THINKING. We know you are a quantum leaper, but you will not be able to do that with all issues that you have built up lots of limiting beliefs around and most people can't do that at all. With some remaining limits you have placed upon your self, you will have to take step by step, a little bit each day to rewire and reprogram your thinking and beliefs on these subjects.

For instance?

Look in the areas of your life where you have limited yourself. Things that you fear, areas that you hold yourself back. Relationships, finances, you know this, Sierra. Each day, take a step towards unlimited thinking in these areas. Start talking to yourself in a new way on these things. There are NO limits on what you can be, do have. Only you limit you. Start taking things to a new level, you are going to be amazed where you are going. You are already there, you just have to let it in. It's like this: your connection to Source is like tuning in a radio dial to a certain station. When you get too far away, the signal is weaker, but as you move closer to the Source, the signal is strong. (I get an image of being in a car and trying to tune in a certain station, and there is lots of static, but I turn the car around and go towards the Source, and it is strong) Always keep focused on the Source, on what you want. Each day take a step towards the Source. Again, step out of the box. Do things that you once feared, even if it's little by little. Only you are holding yourself back and there's no reason for it anymore. There is no reason to fear, Sierra, we are with you. Talk to someone you might not have talked to, go somewhere, do something you might not have done before from fear or doubt. Do SOMETHING every single day to move towards the Source, to bring the signal in stronger. There is nothing to be afraid of. You can handle all that is coming to you and more. YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL! BE UNLIMITED!

BE UNLIMITED, BE UNLIMITED, BE UNLIMITED! I shout to myself (I would have shouted it out loud, but I did have guests on the boat with me) The third time I say BE UNLIMITED with all the passion that I have, a dolphin jumps out of the water 2 feet from the boat, turns in mid air and looks right at me!!!! OMG, talk about confirmation! I am constantly amazed at the U and the way they send me signs and confirmations and evidence. Totally amazing. I am breathless at the Divine Orchestration of it all.

The guests on the boat are a family from Holland. Mom, dad and two kids, about 13 and 16 years old. The water was pretty wavy today, we had a big storm last night. The kids are starting to get sick. The son throws up. I ask the Mom if they want to turn back. "NO!" she says. I start to judge her. Her kids are sick, obviously miserable, but she doesn't want to go back. I start thinking about what kind of mom she is".. my thoughts are going that way and I hear:

Ah, perfect this is happening now, Sierra, this is the next thing we wanted to talk to you about. Judgment of others. You don't know the story behind this family. Now step back and look through The Eyes of Source.

I close my eyes. I see the mom planning their whole vacation to Costa Rica around this dolphin and whale tour. She LOVES them. She wants more than anything to be with dolphins and whales in the wild. She tells her kids the night before that she really wants to do this tour, and if they think they might get sick, better not to go because she doesn't want to have to come back. They insist on coming anyway. I open my eyes and I see her pure delight at seeing the dolphins. She is screeching with glee. She is glowing, she is so happy. And I had judged her for being happy when her kids were sick. Amazing what happens when we LOOK THROUGH THE EYES OF SOURCE. You should have seen her when we found the mom and baby humpbacks!! I put my attention on her, not the sick kids, and brought myself back to PURE JOY.

See, Sierra, by judging others, by not allowing others to be who they are, by putting your own opinions and beliefs upon others, you are only disconnecting yourself from WHO YOU REALLY ARE. You don't know their story, you don't know what has happened before, where they are coming from, and even if you do, IT DOESN'T MATTER!!!! Your job is to stay connected to WHO YOU REALLY ARE and allow allow allow others to find their own way, their own path. Judging others only takes you further from where you want to go.

They told me to pay attention to my posture, to stand up very straight, to improve the flow of energy going through my body. They told me to imagine that I am reaching for the sky with the top of my head and to keep my shoulders back, opening up my heart center more... it seems very important to allow that energy flow through my body and that keeping my body straight and aligned is essential for more energy flow and expansion. They also talked about how important deep breathing is, they said "deep, even, steady breathing." They told me to pay attention to these two things, and it will also help my body adjust to the new higher vibrations I am feeling

There was a lot more, and I know I am missing some things that we said to me, but I need to process it so that I can explain it how it was meant. It was much more a FEELING, a feeling of BEING UNLIMITED.

I do know that as we came back in from the tour, the amazing rainforest that comes all the way to the beach looked greener. The sky looked bluer. I was once again SEEING THROUGH THE EYES OF SOURCE. APPRECIATING the beauty of it all. The connectedness of it all. THE DIVINE PERFECTION OF IT ALL! WE ARE SO BLESSED TO BE HERE, RIGHT NOW, AT THIS VERY MOMENT, AT THIS TIME OF GREAT EXPANSION AND AWARENESS. IT'S A GREAT TIME TO BE ALIVE INDEED!

And my higher self, in order to finish the conversation with a song, talks to me once more. I come back from the tour, walk into my room, and the song that is on is I Hope You Dance by Lee Ann Womack. If you get the chance to sit it out or dance, I HOPE YOU DANCE!

And I add to that, not only dance, but DANCE LIKE NOBODY IS WATCHING!!!

So throw a pebble in the water
Make a wave, make a wave
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh...

Unlimited Possibilities...

What I've noticed this week is that I am down to my core beliefs and patterns.  I've gotten through most all of the smaller ones, the limiting "lite" ones.  Now it's down to the very foundation of where I stand, what I believe in and how I behave. All outer walls and excuses and upper limiting has been peeled away and now I am at the core.  I am at the beliefs and patterns that have been so a part of who I am for so long that I couldn't even see them until now.  It feels strange, to be looking at myself so naked and almost completely stripped away of fluff.  And it feels really good too.  It feels like you feel after a visit to the stationary store and you have all this new, neat, pretty paper to write on. A clean, flowery, perfumey slate.

Now is the time I can rewrite those core beliefs how I want them to be, written from knowing who I truly am, written from knowing that all is well.  I shall acknowledge and appreciate the beliefs that kept me safe as a child, that have gotten me to here... and I shall release them into the river of consciousness past.  I create new beliefs and run new patterns that allow me to operate from a space of unlimitedness and pure freedom.

I love the unlimited possibilities and the unlimited me that I see before me.

Sierra's Weight Loss Tips

If you are reading this, you are probably one of those people who are always struggling with their weight. Believe me, I understand. I have been yo-yoing with my weight my whole life. I understand what it is like to feel fat and unattractive, to not have any energy, and to feel helpless to do anything about it.  I have been there. I have lost 170 pounds.  Of course everyone wants to know what I did.  It was a journey of mind, body and spirit.  I believe addressing all aspects is the key to long term weight loss.

I have put together some tips that helped me achieve my long term weight loss.  My wish is that you find something here that helps you along on your weight loss journey.

·       Find your motivation to change your current eating habits and lifestyle. For each individual person, "the thing", the one thing that finally motivates you to go for it, is different. You have to find your thing; the person, or place, or photo, or health issue that motivates YOU. I recommend taking pictures of yourself so you can no longer avoid knowing what you look like to others. You have to be honest with yourself, even if you are not honest about your weight on your driver's license! Sometimes the photos alone are enough to motivate you. If that doesn't do it, maybe there is some hot guy you like (or some husband you want to keep!), or a trip you want to take, or a cute outfit that you want to look good in. Whatever your motivation is, post it on the fridge and all around your house and keep it in the forefront of your mind at all times. I kept several things in my mind during my weight loss. One was a photo of myself looking like the Goodyear Blimp's younger sister. The other was that my knees were starting to go and I thought about having to use a lift system to get up the stairs to my house. That one really motivated me.  The idea is to find something that gets you motivated and gets you started. 

·       I am a big believer in the power of affirmations and visualization. It is a very powerful message to the universe and to your sub-conscious mind when you write down your hopes and dreams as if you already have them. I used a journal and wrote things like: "I am healthy and thin", "I weigh 130 pounds", "I am a size 5". You get the idea. The trick is to write the sentences AS IF YOU ALREADY ARE AND ALREADY HAVE THE THINGS YOU ARE WRITING ABOUT. Do not write "I will be", or "I wish I was", or "I want". Once you have your affirmation list, LOOK AT IT EVERY DAY, best is in the morning before you start your day (while you are drinking your green tea!) and even better, all throughout the day and before you go to bed. To go with your written affirmations, VISUALIZE AND FEEL YOURSELF as the thin person you are. Sit up!! Hold your body like a thin person, walk like a thin person, talk like a thin person.  Visualize yourself in the clothes you want to wear, FEEL IT, BE IT! This is an important part of weight loss, do not skip this step, it really helps! One of the things I did is when I was huffing and puffing up the steps from the beach to my house was that I pictured myself bouncing and even running up those steps. Now it is true! Visualize yourself on vacation with lots of energy and cute clothes, visualize yourself buckling your seat belt without holding in your stomach, visualize yourself zipping up adorable Size 5 jeans with ease. The more you do this, the easier your weight loss will be. Trust me on this.

·       It is so important to do things that make you feel good about yourself during this time. Please take off those ugly sweats, cut them up and use them for cleaning the house and buy yourself some new clothes that you feel good in, no matter what size they are. NO FRUMPS!!!! eBay, and were a Godsend for me as I was able to buy really cute plus size clothing that made me feel great. Don't go crazy, because your new clothes wont fit you for long! Keep cleaning out your closet as clothes get too big on you. Donate them to your fat friends who will want to know what you are doing or even sell them on eBay. Don't keep around "fat clothes" just in case. You don't want to have that to fall back on. Don't create safety nets for yourself this time. Go for it or Go HOME! Get a manicure, get your hair done, treat yourself like the princess (or prince) that you are! The trick is to keep you feeling good about yourself and not fall back into self pity and overeating.  If looking in a mirror frustrates you, don’t look in the mirror until it feels good!

·       Raise your hand if you are a member of The Clean Plate Club. Yep, I thought so. I am the same way, there are starving children in Africa, you know. I have learned to ask for smaller portions because it is so hard for me to leave food on my plate. If you are still served too big portions, repeat after me, "It is okay to leave food on my plate. Worms and bugs need food too, it will get eaten by something eventually, it doesn't have to be me." Keep saying it. Stop eating when you are full. It is always good to drink green tea 10 minutes before you eat. You will feel fuller faster and will have that extra motivation and willpower that you need.

·       It is very important to identify and release the belief systems that keep you eating food to self sabotage your dreams.  If you are overweight, your beliefs are holding you there.  It is very possible to change these beliefs with your persistent new thoughts and emotions.  Read my ebook, Becoming Thin that teaches my I AM Diet Plan and use my Guided Visualization which helps to eliminate the limiting beliefs which keep you from your dreams. 

·       Don’t put off your life until you get thin.  Start doing the things you have been putting off.  Live NOW as you would if you were already thin.  Be thin now!

·       Find a long term eating plan that works for you and that you can stick to. What is important is that it is a program that you can stay on without feeling deprived and hungry (feeling deprived leads to overeating!) and that will support you after you have reached your goal.

·       Sorry, but you cannot get out of the exercise thing. It is essential not only for weight loss, but for your overall health. Start out slow, don't push yourself. Take a walk with a friend or your poor dog who never gets out.  Find fun things to do for exercise that you don’t dread.  As you lose weight, you will find that your energy level is higher and you will WANT TO EXERCISE. Really! I never thought it could be true, but as I got thinner, I actually wanted to exercise because I had so much energy. It just feels so good for so many reasons. There are also lots of great online workout programs too.

·       Stay conscious when you eat. If you are like me, you can go into a kind of food stupor and you don't even think or breath until everything on your plate is gone and then you wonder where it went! Put your fork down between every few bites, eat slowly, chew, chew, chew! I still have to remind myself to do this. It is a hard habit to break, but so important to do for your health and weight loss goals.\\

·       Be kind to yourself. Don't beat yourself up if you really want to eat something.  If you are going to feel guilty before and after eating, you are not going to enjoy it and it will be even worse, body, mind and soul.  Enjoy your meal, enjoy every single bite, slowly.  Then just get right back on and continue. You deserve it and you are worth it. Be like thin people and when you overeat, compensate.  Get right back to listening to your body.  And if you are going to eat something that you consider bad, like a hamburger, be sure to eat it with leafy greens like a salad to help your body digest it.

·       Congratulate yourself on the big and small victories and successes. I threw a party when I was able to cross my legs again with ease (but of course I didn't tell anyone what the party really was celebrating!)

·       Do not let yourself get to the starving point as that can lead to a major overeating binge. It is always better to eat 6 small meals during the day, or at least have a snack between meals to keep your metabolism up. I usually snack on nuts (don't go overboard, but they are a good source of protein and very filling) or fruits or both.

·       One of the best things you can do for your overall health and weight loss is to stop eating processed foods. Fill your diet with whole foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and whole grains. Foods that are still in their original, natural form. Highly processed breads, pastas, meats, and other foods that no longer resemble what they once were will slow down your weight loss. Fried foods are out too, they are just horrible for your system. Become a lean, mean, greaseless machine!

·       Drink lots of water. This helps with weight loss but will also help to keep your skin hydrated to avoid stretch marks and hanging skin. Use lots of lotion too. Coconut oil is one of the best products for your skin!

·       Get yourself some support.  Hang with people with like minded goals.  Get a Life Coach, preferably ME, who will support you and keep you accountable. Join other groups that will support you in your dreams.

·       Look in the mirror everyday and say "Love You" and mean it, no matter where you are with your weight loss goals!

Is the Law of Attraction Yesterday's News?

Lately I have been hearing a lot of people saying that they are giving up on the Law of Attraction (LOA). They are tired of hearing about it, tired of the thousands of websites, seminars and self improvement programs promising the moon and the stars with the LOA because it just does not seem to work for them.

The truth is, the Law of Attraction is ALWAYS working, it is Universal Law, but if you are not vibrating in the energetic vicinity of what you desire, you are not going to get it. When people are not getting what they want, they think the Law of Attraction does not work. But sorry, folks, there is no getting out of Universal Law. It is working; you are just not allowing it to work in your favor.

Another reason people don’t want to hear about the Law of Attraction is because they don’t want to be responsible for their own lives. They find it easier to blame others for everything that happens to them or blame some cruel God who punishes us for our sins.

I also think the recent turn from focus on the Law of Attraction by many whom have been teaching it for a long time now is that the LOA just IS. It’s like gravity, and we don’t talk about gravity all day long trying to figure out how to use it to our advantage in our lives. We don’t go around trying to “invoke” gravity. We just KNOW it IS and act accordingly. Why keep talking about it and trying to get it to work for us? It already is working for us. People don’t have to know anything about gravity to stay planted on the ground, nor do they need to know of or believe in the Law of Attraction to attract like energy. It’s a given.
Before the term “Law of Attraction” became so popular, I learned it as the “Law of Love” or the “Law of Divine Orchestration”. It is only in recent years that Law of Attraction has become the buzz phrase for this Universal Law.

There is no doubt that like energy and vibration attracts like energy and vibration; that is the proven scientific explanation. But spiritually, the explanation is that Divine Super Intelligence loves us unconditionally and wants to give us what we want. So to make it easy, and not overwhelming like Jim Carey in Bruce Almighty, Source let us be our own self sufficient creators, each of us holding the power that creates worlds within us. Why would we ever think/feel/vibrate anything that we don’t want knowing that we are powerful creators who create our reality with our thoughts/feelings/vibration? Like duh!!! But there is a reason why we hold ourselves back.

For me the focus has more shifted from concentrating on the Law of Attraction to focusing on the beliefs we have acquired during our lifetime, some of them outdated and limiting, and re-wiring those to match what we truly want. Our beliefs filter our perception of life, how we see ourselves and others. Our beliefs are there to protect us and keep us safe; we created them early on when we observed something and made a decision about it. Or maybe we heard someone say something like “You will never amount to anything”, or “Don’t eat that, you will get fat,” or “You have to work hard to make money,” and boom, a belief is born. Our forming brains soaked it up like a sponge and made it true for us. But what we thought we needed to keep us safe as children is no longer valid as adults, especially as we evolve and expand. We need to learn to adjust and amend and re-wire until our beliefs match our desires so that we get what we desire by Divine Universal Law.

It doesn't take rocket science to figure out where you are vibrating on any given subject. Just look at your bank account, your relationships, your career. What you are getting is what you are vibrating. Every time. And if you are not getting what you want, you have beliefs that are keeping you where you are. Bust the limiting beliefs and you are free!

If you are saying positive affirmations, created a vision board, visualize and keep a lucky charm in your pocket but you are still not manifesting your desires, you have subconscious limiting beliefs that say “no you can’t, no you aren’t, it’s not going to happen,” that sabotage your positive actions. All the affirmations in the world are not going to work if your underlying core belief is that you are not worthy of your dreams.

Why do we ever not follow our dreams? Why do we limit ourselves and justify and settle? Sometimes beliefs are so ingrained and so a part of who we are, we don’t even realize they are there and that they are limiting us. But if you not living the life of your dreams, you definitely have limiting beliefs holding you back from being the unlimited being that you truly are. Let’s bust em up now!

There are many ways to bust your limiting beliefs:

It is helpful to first identify your limiting beliefs. One way to identify them is to become a conscious thinker. Become observant to your thoughts. Become present and in the moment to what you are thinking about. Notice and observe your thoughts instead of just letting them run on and on. Stop yourself and think about what you are thinking! The background running thoughts that we think without thinking are the subconscious mind running our core patterns and beliefs.

Our conscious mind says, “I am happy, wealthy and healthy, see I even wrote it one hundred times and cut out pictures about it!” And our subconscious mind says, “Oh, no, you’re not, remember that time they told you that you are stupid and would never amount to anything?” And the subconscious dominate belief wins.

Become a conscious thinker and notice when your mind chatter is saying “I’m not good enough, I can never do that, I’ll never have a lot of money.” When you notice those thoughts, don’t get upset with yourself. Just gently bring your thoughts to positive statements such as, “I am worthy, The Universe is loving and supports me, I am abundant in all ways.” With time and repetition, you will start to believe them.

The key here is focus and repetition. Repetition rewires. You can literally rewire the neurons in your brain to create a new path that connects to new core beliefs. Dr. Joe Dispenza of What the Bleep? fame says it takes seventeen days to rewire the neurons in your brain to create to new core beliefs and habits.

I love to use RAPs (Repetitive Audio Programs) for fast and efficient rewiring. RAPs are selected affirmations repeated over and over while you meditate or sleep. When you are in a theta brain wave state, your subconscious is open to receive new information without resistance, making for fast and easy reprogramming. I put on the mp3 before I go to sleep, and then all night the recorded statements are seeping into my subconscious, rewiring my beliefs while I dream. This is my kind of rewiring!

The only problem with repetitive programs is that some people don’t stick with them. They do it for a few days or a week, declare it doesn’t work and then go looking for the next speaker or seminar or book to give them the answer. The problem is, wherever you go, there your beliefs are.

People will also find that resistance can come up after a short while of using a repetitive program. As we are reprogramming our core beliefs, events or emotions come up that need to be released and it can become a bit uncomfortable, so we stop using them.

Be patient, give yourself a break, you have been running these patterns and beliefs for most of your life and the prize you get for releasing them and replacing them is well worth the effort. After all, it’s your life!

Another very effective method for releasing limiting beliefs and old emotional baggage is the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). EFT uses the energy meridian points on your body, the same ones used for acupuncture. You simply tap on these points in order while going through a sequence of statements that relate to your issue. I have seen miraculous results using EFT and have added it to my coaching practice because it is so quick and easy. EFT is becoming more and more popular as people discover its powerful and rapid belief release abilities.

While I have not yet explored it myself, I have heard great things from people I highly respect about using the Sedona Method for releasing limiting beliefs, so I mention it here.

Hypnotherapy is also great for easily getting to your core beliefs and replacing them with new ones. You can visit a qualified hypnotherapist or even find a self hypnosis program that will guide you into a relaxed theta state and then feed you some new beliefs to hang onto.

Do some research and follow your inner guidance and intuition to find which method will work best for you. It might be one or a combination of them. YOU will know what is best for you. Trust your guidance and what calls to you.

All these methods are great for helping you to release limiting beliefs that no longer serve you, however they are in addition to, and do not take the place of, becoming, right NOW, the person you want to be. Step right into who you really are, your true authentic self. Limitless. Free. Joyful. Abundant. Loving. Be happy now, appreciate what you have now, start to live out your dreams now!

Join or form a master mind group where you all support and hold each other in the vision of who you really are. Join positive groups that are aligned with your vision. There is big power in numbers. Take constant inspired action steps towards your dreams. Let go of blame, anger, old emotions and baggage that no longer serve you. Follow your heart and intuition.
