Where SHIFT Happens!


The Hot Air Balloon Effect

Everything you want, everything you have asked for is already here, waiting for you to reach out and grab it.  We’ve all heard of The Secret and The Law of Attraction.  Most of us have tried to manifest all of the things we want in life, but some of us have not been able to succeed at this.  Want to know the real secret?  It has to do with being happy in the now and getting rid of the clutter in your life. 

Before I go any further, I want to share with you my definition of clutter.  When I say clutter I mean actual stuff, negative thoughts and words, people, the job you dislike, anything that may be bringing you down or not making you happy in the now. 


To clarify further, by stuff I mean the stuff that is cluttering your home, your space, stuff that you are holding onto like old magazines, knick-knacks, stuff that a friend or family member gave you that you don’t really like but are keeping it just because. The clothes in your closet that you never wear, or are too small/too big.   Donate the stuff that is cluttering your space, someone less fortunate will benefit and you will be clearing your space of stale energy.   

Negative thoughts and words. Blame, shame, guilt, fear, all of these thoughts and words lower your vibration, your confidence, and they take away your power.  Start paying attention to the negative, anytime you think or say something negative simply say to yourself ‘Cancel – Clear– Delete’ and then rephrase or replace it with something positive. State what you are grateful for, what you love about yourself or your life.  Change your thoughts, change your words, change your life.

People.  Yes, there are probably people in your life who drag you down, I call these people ‘energy vampires’.  Who in your life steals or deflates your energy, your power, your happiness? After spending some time with someone, take a few moments to check on how you feel.  Do you feel lighter, happier and peaceful, or do you feel down, heavier and drained?  If it’s the latter, it’s time you release these people from your life.  Surround yourself with the people who support you and raise your energy level.  You will be happier for it.    

Your Job.  Do you wake up every morning happy to go to work?  Do you love what you do?  If not, I hate to tell you this, but you will be stuck in your current situation until you move on to something you love.  Think about it.  We spend a great deal of time at work and with the people we work with. If you are not happy, constantly complaining about your job, and are just there for the paycheck, you are lowering your vibration on a daily basis.  Take a moment to think about what your ideal job would be, what would you love to do?  What are you good at?  How do you feel just thinking about it?  Figure out what that is, and find a way to go do it.  Ask yourself “What can I do today in direction of my dream?”, and go do it. Start working at this a little bit each day, work towards manifesting your dream job.  Let the Universe know that you are ready to step into your dream, be happy now! 

I’d like to share a visual with you.  Pretend everything you want is in the clouds, it is waiting there for you, at the doorstep of your higher vibration.  You are sitting in a hot air balloon with all of your clutter, the balloon is sitting on the ground because it is so heavily weighed down.  What can you do to start getting rid of this clutter?  Throw it overboard!  Once you start, you will notice the balloon lifting off of the ground.  The balloon is a symbol of your vibration.  As you get rid of the clutter and negativity in your life, your vibrational balloon will begin rising higher and higher.  Eventually you will find yourself floating among the clouds, and everything you’ve ever wanted will begin flowing into your life with ease. 

Sing, Dance, Laugh…..raise your vibration and grasp onto all of the good that is waiting for you.

Love and Gratitude,
