Tap into the Power of Synchronicity to Discover your Map of Destiny

Do you know that paying attention to and tapping into the power of synchronicity is a way to hone in on your partnership with the Universe and create your destiny?

I know it appears I’m repeating myself as I have written about this many times in the past because it’s so important to underline especially these days. With all the turmoil in the world, it’s easy to only believe what appears to be true in that crazy environment where the media reports only the drama and very little of the amazing and good. We are in a time of great change and if we rely on only what we see and are exposed to we will only be responding to a sliver of the whole story. It’s easy to get stuck in the challenges. Yet there is a guiding principle that engages us through meaningful coincidences that Swiss psychologist Carl Jung called synchronicity.


No matter the temporary conditions, your intentions and energy are reflected through this invisible guidance. It’s kind of like the universe working anonymously on your behalf.

A very effective tool for stress relief

We all have come to understand that feelings of anxiety can lead to stress. Over the years I have been helping my clients finding newer and more feasible tools for stress relief. Taking to more easier ways which would perhaps be more coherent and conducive to our modern day environment. Here as a writer I strongly recommend journaling as one of the most effective tools for stress management.

The most important need for us humans is to express ourselves and also to be understood. We need to realize that we first need to understand our own selves. The best way I feel we can do it is by putting all our thoughts on paper. Let's get started by stating the following ways

WHAT IS JOURNALING

As a way to manage stress, journaling needs to be done constantly. By this, I mean, writing every day, your feelings and emotions. The mere expression on paper gives a sense of relief and helps you to rid yourself of your budding anxiety.

How’s Your Life Force?

In order to lead a completely soul-filled, energetic life, giving life everything that you have to offer and being all that you can be, you must keep your soul power (life force) entirely strong and intact. I constantly remind people when I’m teaching that we’re all made up of energy!

As energetic beings, we have what’s known as energy cords, which we constantly emanate, whether consciously or unconsciously. When you direct your thoughts and energy to a particular person, place, object, situation, or even an uncompleted project, you begin to establish an energetic cord with whatever you’re focusing on. The more you send your power there or obsess about it, the bigger and stronger the cord becomes. In turn, what happens is that your energy attaches itself to the object of your concern, and your own precious resource seeps away from your soul, where it’s most needed.

I’m sure that you’ve heard the expression “giving your power away.” Well, that’s exactly what happens. Not only are you giving it away, which is a form of soul leakage, but you also become energetically entangled once this energy connection has been established. I’m not advocating that you never become attached or that you disconnect yourself from those around you or from life itself. You can have healthy attachments to people, places, and situations, ones that feed your soul and supply you with energy. In other words, I’m referring to anything that’s taking your power away and draining you — the unforeseen connections that pull or tug on your energy, leaving you feeling drained.

3 Easy Ways to Practice Mindful Writing and Creation

What do you think of when you think of the perfect creative space? The space where you have the peace and inspiration to write to your heart’s content? I’m not necessarily talking about writing a novel. It can be meditative journaling, creating content for your blog, or even writing a love letter to someone special. Is your perfect spot a sun-soaked beach with the sound of waves creating a thunderous soundtrack? Maybe it’s a coffee shop in the middle of a bustling European city where you soak up culture and sophistication. Or, perhaps it’s a mountain retreat deep in a snow-capped mountain range.

 

Now look out your window. Where are you? Are you in your ideal writing and creating location?

 

If the answer is yes, then kindly go back to what you’re doing and revel in the perfection. I’m sorry to have disturbed you. However, chances are that you’re not in your ideal writing location. Am I right? Your view may be of a dumpster, the neighbor’s swing set, or a front yard that really needs to be mowed.

My Birthday Reflection

As I approach my birthday and a new year of life, I’ve been thinking about how blessed I am.


I’m blessed to live in this country. Blessed to have my family and my friends. Blessed to be in conversation with a loving non-judgmental god. Blessed to have work that interests me. Blessed to be in community with people who are good, kind, compassionate and inspiring. I include you, the readers of The Sunday Paper, as part of that community.

The Writing Nook – Honoring the Call to Write

Hey friends… As you may or may not know, I have recently published my first book, as a publisher, not as an author: 365 Days of Angel Prayers. I also recently wrote my 20th book. Not all of the books are mine alone. Several are co-authored with amazing people doing similar work, and some are compilation books. Many are self-published by SDJ Productions and several are published through traditional publishing companies. I have learned a lot about witting … and publishing … and self-publishing. I have really gotten to experience many aspects of this industry… and I really love it. I love it because … it might be hard to believe … I was someone who did NOT like to write … not for anything besides personal journaling anyway. But, the message became more important than my dislike or fear … it became a BIG part of my purpose. Which is why I love this industry. It allows us to help others through our experience, it gives you a voice in a different and powerful way, and opens up a healing that I truly believe serves the masses, not just the self. That’s why I have asked Shanda Trofe to share with my readers little tips and tidbits to support you and your writing.

To Manifest Your Desires - Rewrite Your Past To Manifest!

When you think about your past, what  makes the old you that lived your old story and your memory of the experiences come alive? Do certain smells trigger a memory? What about music? A song can remind you of a moment in time where you were changed forever. But were you frozen in time? Do you still tell the old story the same way?

Writing Your Soul Self into the World

Every time you write, you are expressing something about yourself, sending a vibration, either a faint, half-hearted one or a full-on, authentic blast of your soul self. Whether it’s an email, a social media post, or an article or book intended for publication, it is filled with your vibes—clear and forthright or vaguely uncertain. In the world of vibration and perceived intent, writing is the same as speaking. We are announcing who we are in the world with every word we utter, out loud or in cyberspace. The question is: How truthful are we when we speak/write? True to ourselves, that is.
