Hello, Fellow Choice Makers!!

choosethose0athingsthat0amakeyousmile0a0a28heart290a-default

I want to share with you 20 of my favorite things in hopes that you may find some of them as useful as I do.  

I know every little bit helps, and when we surround ourselves with things that make us feel good, we raise our vibration and get in alignment with manifesting what we want. 

The top 20:

  1. Candles—Loving candles throughout my house right now. My luxury brand is diptyke—www.diptyqueparis.com
  2. Tea— Love Teavana, Youthberry White Tea…but you can’t go wrong with any from this brand—www.teavana.com
  3. Music—I am loving any ambiance and chakra balancing music right now. There is a good selection on this site—www.meditationrelaxclub.com
  4. Baths!!—Loving long, candle lit baths. I know it’s a simple thing, but those are often the things that are the biggest vibration enhancers. I always put some kind of bath salts in my bath. One of my favorite brands is AHAVA calming lavender, but any natural brand is fine—www.ahavaus.com
  5. Beautiful Journals—I am a big believer in journaling.  One of my favorite journal brands is paperblanks—www.paperblanks.com/us/en.  Barnes and Noble always has a great selection of gorgeous journals as well.
  6. Yoga—Loving Kundalini right now. Maia Fiennes complete chakra set is really good! www.amazon.com/Maya-Fiennes-Kundalini-Yoga-Journey/dp/B001FC37FM
  7. Exercise—I discovered Burst training about 5 years ago, and it has changed my body, my metabolism (more bacon mac n cheese, yay!) and I am no longer bored of working out. And the best part??  It’s quick and effective. 
  8. Supplements—I LOVE my supplements, and I notice a huge difference in my energy and the way my skin looks when I don’t take them. I get most of my supplements from Mercola.com. I take Krill for Women, Ubiquinol, Turmeric, Probiotic, Astaxanthin and occasionally I will add some others in here or there. For my Multi-vitamin I use a brand from Prograde, called  VGF 25+.  If you need more information on brands and what you may need, get in touch with me and we can discuss options. 
  9. Skincare—I am a skincare fanatic. My favorite everyday brand is Arcona and Renee Rouleau. 
  10. Eating “Clean.”—I LOVE to eat (hence the burst training to supercharge my metabolism), but I do eat very “clean.”  What does this mean? I eat almost 99% organic, and  when I do eat meat, it’s the cleanest version I can find. In other words, it is free range, or grass fed, organic and not the mass-produced stuff.  
  11. Abraham-Hicks— I am a believer! They are the pioneers of the manifesting movement. My life changed dramatically for the better when I started listening to, reading and implementing their teachings. Invaluable! Any of their books, CDs or DVDs are good. My favorite is  called  “Getting into the Vortex.”
  12. Danielle LaPorte, The Desire Map (book)—I am one of her book club leaders, and  I love, love, love it. www.daniellelaporte.com
  13. Florence Scovel Shinns, The Complete Works of Florence Scovel Shinn(book)—This is old school and a bit religious-y, but her message is GOLD. I LOVE the affirmations and find them to be very high vibration. 
  14. Holosync—This and Abraham-Hicks’ Getting into the Vortex CDs are my two main meditation CDs. I use them both at night before I go to bed. Great way to end the day. www.centerpointe.com/about
  15. Self-help, Coaching, Counseling, Personal Enrichment—I am a BIG believer in  always learning, growing and stretching. Stretching beyond our comfort zones and trying new things. Investing in myself, in a high end coaching program, was the best thing I have ever done for myself. 
  16. Being around people I love—My family, my kids and other like-minded people. I love being part of a community of positive, healthy, successful people.
  17. Good, high quality dark chocolate or raw cocoa—One of my favorite brands is Theo—www.theochocolate.com
  18. Coconut oil for body care—I LOVE using coconut oil as a moisturizer. I buy a huge tub of organic coconut oil at Costco and use it as my main body oil.
  19. Sleep at least 8 hours a night—I love to sleep!  I use, on occasion, Mercolas melatonin if I am having trouble sleeping. 
  20. Laughter—I choose to laugh and smile as much as I can. Not only are they free, but they are instant vibration changers.

I know some of the things on this list are also included on my list about how to raise your vibration, but there are a good number of new things on this list. 

When we make a conscious choice to surround ourselves with things we love, we are stepping into a place of being conscious creators of our lives. We— in turn—add to the good energy of our lives and the planet. 

My point in sharing this with you is ultimately for you to create your own list. Create your arsenal that you can surround yourself with to feel good—no matter what. Because when we learn to feel good no matter what , we manifest our desires. Whether it’s more money, improved health, happiness—whatever it is for you —we get there one choice at a time.

So, choose to create your top 20 ( 0r 10, 30, 50, 100)  list and enjoy!

Happy Holidays!
