This week, it's even more evident to me (than it's been in the prior 15 months) that the world is changing, and that it is still critical on an energetic level to be aware of what that change is for you and for the world we want to build.
Bottom line, when we see an opportunity to "Be the Light," it's up to us to do so. At every single turn. I know that can be a lot to have to stay conscious of our daily choices and thoughts, but it's vital. This is a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure dimension (if you're too young to know what those books were, Google it). In this instance, I mean that we are constantly creating our reality at every moment. This is just like "what you focus on expands." If you focus on something you're afraid of, it'll be placed in front of you until you aren't afraid of it anymore, because that's what you've chosen to work on. At every level, it's all about choice.
Those choices are subtle. We aren't always aware of them. Again, that's the tricky part – staying conscious. It's so easy to be lulled to sleep in this dimension, but when we forget to be mindful of our mind, to catch the judging thoughts mid-air, to focus on the good, to BE that which we want to see in the world – love, kindness, joy, fun, hope, support – whatever that is you need at a basic level; when we forget and slip up, what happens? We are reminded.
So make it your priority this week to Be the Light. And be the light for yourself and others. And let's start saying goodbye to this world that no longer serves us.
More on that next week... until then, accept imperfection, because there's nothing worse than trying to do it perfectly.
With love and light,
Weekly, we discuss what's in the general field of our topics of conversation, and shoot out a weekly "Conversations this Week" email blast to our subscribers.
This week we've been hearing over and over how we must stay the course when it comes to negative energy and the general fear and division that's out in our world right now. In lieu of a written email, Andy wanted to come to you with hope and tools for keeping your energy high!

Hello from Lake George, NY!
My husband's family is from this area, 4+ hours northwest of NYNY, deep in the mountains of the Adirondacks, and we come here every summer for a week or more to gather with his 4 sisters and parents to spend time on a big, "finger lake," glacier formed and crystal clear. We spend time with family and cousins, and we pack in the fun.
And the prevailing conversation this week is health: living healthy, strong, and keeping our health and mind protected from outside influences. While our population is still very polarized on many subjects, we can all agree on one thing: We need to take care of our health, because without that, we have nothing. There's a saying "when you have good health, you can dream of all things; when you don't have good health, you dream of only one thing."
To digress for a moment: there is a learning module in our Manifesting with Synchronicity course that covers health, living clean, and protecting our health with both healthy habits and a healthy mind, and I live by these practices. To learn more about MWS, visit our site. This course is your go-to for all things health and positivity – practices, universal laws, developing healthy mind body habits, and so so much more.
But back to health, and specifically, the mind: for our conversation of the week: protecting our space – and getting sucked into someone else's. When you get sucked into someone else's energy, it can send you down in vibration, so it's important to protect your mind to protect your health.
Here are the ways I make sure to remind myself to protect my mind, mind space, heart space, and body.
All of this and more, again, are in our courses. Both Manifesting with Synchronicity and Awakening the Intuitive Within help to keep your head right, help clear out patterns that no longer serve you, and help to keep your vibration high so you can manifest the life of your dreams.
What is your biggest dream?
Waking up on the right side of the bed – the right morning routine to kickstart any day
This week, I seem to be conversing more than usual about having a high-vibe morning routine. You haven't established a morning routine for yourself or you aren't perhaps even familiar with the concept, a morning routine is something that will set your day off right, all of the greats have one, all of the successful people swear by one, and since I started doing mine, I have noticed a general piece that prevails throughout my day established first thing in the morning.
I have witnessed through the pandemic that many friends spent a little more time focusing on setting boundaries within our own home and making sure that we have our own space – our own time. But, of course, that isn't always possible, especially when you have children. A disruption in your day can come from anywhere – from work; from family; from a random phone call – and when we have worked on our positive mindset from the get-go in the morning, those disruptions are less derailing.
Morning routine doesn't have to be meditate, work out, eat a green smoothie. But it definitely should include time away from your phone, quiet time for reflection, and movement, if possible. When we start our day jumping right into the notifications and interruptions from our phone, that can send us into any kind of emotional stress, or when we skip over the self-care, it's a recipe for long-term adrenal fatigue, or responding from a place of frustration versus peace and calm.
My morning routine fluctuates because I like change, but it includes some or all of these elements:
Before I even get out of bed, I put my hand over my heart and I say a few things that I am grateful for... Sometimes, that might just be my bed. But if I get into that space of appreciation from my heart, I carry that with me all day. I have the book Gratitude by Louise Hay, and sometimes I will read a passage from that book and journal as well.
I always start my day with a big glass of water with lemon; in the winter it is warm. And for the last 15 months or so, I have followed that up with another big glass of celery juice. I find this moves my body into the alkaline state. Immediately, I feel vibrant. It raises my vibration, and I know I'm flushing the toxins that my body pushed out from the night before.
Whether it's yoga, a HIT workout, or a hike in the summer and a snowboard session in the winter, movement is part of my daily routine. I like for it to be in the morning because then I feel like it charges my brain and my body. To do it in the afternoon, I am typically not motivated to do so. I am a firm believer in the "eat the frog first" philosophy, where you get the toughest thing out of the way first, then the rest of the tasks don't seem so daunting. Sometimes, moving my body does feel like a chore, so I try to remember to make sure to make it fun and playful!
This summer, I have been taking in my celery juice on the front step in our flowering garden with our kittens. Well, they aren't kittens anymore but they still act like it, and it's fun to watch them chase the crickets, sniff all the flowers, eat blades of grass and watch the birds. It brings my focus back to the simplicity of life, to slow down a little bit in the morning and to set that pace for the rest of my day. 3 days a week I take in a hike, and so spending that extra time in the woods helps me process, connects me to Source and Mother at once, and I often come up with some of my best ideas in the woods. Sometimes, I record a visualization, too, and share that to our YouTube channel!
So, although this sounds like a lot, by the time I have done most of these things, it's often still early in the morning and I have my whole day to be the busy human I like to be. But, when I start my day like this, I'm a little less busy.
I also like to have a night routine, but it doesn't always happen, which makes the morning routine that much more important. At night, I will play with the kittens, then reflect, journal, and practice a little night yoga that helps me sleep. Then, I listen to a visualization or meditation; I like to do my meditating at night, but not everyone can do that. If it puts you to sleep, you'll need to find another time to do yours.
I hope you have a morning routine, or that this helps to inspire you to lock one in. Even if it's just choosing one thing to start, and adding on to it bit by bit. Habits are created in 21 days, so there's no time like the present to get started!
