Eyes are the Windows to the Soul

When you look at the world around you, are you really seeing it.. Are you really looking at it? Or are you merely glancing at it, without truly absorbing, noticing, feeling it?
When we take a moment to become still, to listen to the earth breathe, to listen to ourselves breathe, we combine the internal with the external. Your eyes can see what is infront of them, but can your soul connect with it?
Our realities are relative to our perception.
The people around you, the moments and places you are in, we’re in them for a reason. We’re in them to connect
We must remember to Be Present.

Gotta Tighten Up

“Living is a process,
Sometimes it’s tough,
Gotta remember to never give up.
Yeah some days are long, 
Yeah some days suck,
But it’s all about mentality, gotta tighten up.
Trust in the process,
Trust in yourself,
Whenever you get down, just ask for some help.
Turn up the music,
Put on your dancing shoes,
Get on up, get on down, 
You’ve got nothing to lose.
Keep your chin high, 
Roll with the tide,
Just gotta remember, 
Life is about the ride.”

Worldly Vibrations

Happiness comes from within us. 
It comes from thoughts stemming from acceptance, in turn causing some sort of conscious relief.. 
When that happens.. When you take that deep breath which is followed by a smile, the vibration you emit to the world on a frequency-level has changed the day.
Not just for you, but for the entire world.
We’re all connected, to every-thing.
Make today a happy one, the power is yours.

Perceive, React, Surpass

I began working at a new company today. HOORAY!! 🙂
I’d have to say that starting at a new place, doing something new is totally exciting, yes – totally empowering, yes – Scary? Absolutely.
“That’s a normal feeling, Emily!” “You’ll do great, Emily!” ALL things we have all heard, yet we have this fear inside of the unknown, most of the time.
Why? I kept asking myself. Lock it up, Emily, I kept telling myself.
And of course the second you step into the newness, the feelings of anxiety subside and it’s really not that bad, is it?

The questions we create in our minds and the doubts we have, stem from a natural conditioning to feel those things, however, we can also condition ourselves to get past that and instead, feel way less anxious about any new scenario by mindful practicing of positive thinking and positive self talk. (whew that was a long sentence/thought.)

I opened up my Timehop app after a few hours of being at work and BAM, a universal message that came back to me, which I had written three years ago was right in my face:

“Every new day holds a situation that is meant to teach you a lesson(s) and once we are open to the idea of ‘being’ and ‘letting be’ it becomes clearer and easier to follow your gut, your heart. 

We are exactly where we are supposed to be in life. 

It’s all about how you choose to perceive, react and surpass.”

Perfect, don’t you think?

Love and Light, my friends.

She Became Wild Within


“She became wild within,
As if the chains and ropes had disappeared,
But it was a different freedom,
A different wild..
The gaze in her eyes taken over by some other form of life that had never been experienced before.
Yet the void of a loss, so deep, so fresh,
Making her soul cling..
‘Fly..’ She heard..
‘Trust me..’
So she flew.
And she was free.”

C’est La Vie – France

…The journey of a thousand miles, begins with one single step…

This is an exerpt from the album created on my Facebook from my travels to France this past December/January.
As I recently posted, I had lost my father and my grandmother within three weeks of each other, but I was blessed enough to go on this journey, which helped me start to get through everything.

** Photos will continue to be added as I edit them, there are still about 1200 I need to go through! 🙂 **

“What a surreal ending to 2015 and beginning to 2016. Lots of laughs yet so many tears. Two of the greatest people in my life left this earth, leaving a gigantic hole in my heart and soul. 
However, such is life. You must keep moving on.. Open your eyes and mind to the world around you.. Look for the signs.. Everything will be alright.

Every day is a blessing.
I am so grateful for the support while I’ve been away and re-establishing pieces of me, of my soul.
I thank those who I saw on this trip to France and who opened up their world to me.
And I thank my dad and my grandmother for giving me the opportunity to even begin this journey. 

It’s all divine timing.

Lots of love. <3″
