Theme of the Day

You gotta have hope so you can continue to venture on your path towards victory.

Welcome to Day 18 of the challenge.  If you’re jumping in right now, be sure to check out the Welcome to the Triple Dog Dare to get started.  The previous days are listed at the bottom of each post with a hyperlink.

The Star comes to you today as a reminder to hold onto hope.  She kneels beneath a brightly illuminated night sky filled with eight stars.  Upon closer inspection, you’ll see that one star is bigger than the other, which suggests that better times and a glimmer of hope is right around the corner.  The Star reminds you of the great potential you have within you via the two pitchers she holds in her hands.  The water flows freely, as does your potential.

“For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.  So collapse. Crumble. This is not your destruction.  This is your birth.” –N.T.

At times, business is filled with ups and downs.  It’s easy to focus on all the stresses and negative thoughts.  However, be sure to take some time to celebrate the victories no matter how small they may be.  The Star invites you to step into your vulnerability, so you can connect to others on a real level.

Try to focus on the small stuff in your life and express gratitude allows you to connect with the spirit.  Gratitude feeds hope, which allows you to approach life’s difficulties with a sense of calmness.  When you’re going through life with a sense of calmness, you’ll be able to see all the signs around you given to you by the spirit to help you pave your way to success.

A client came in and lamented that nothing was working out in her life.  Her relationship was in shambles and her business was not generating the revenue she wanted.  She wanted me to see what tarot said about her situation so she could understand better as to what was going wrong.

After meditating on her message and calling forth my spirit guides to show me what important message to share with her, The Star emerged.  The card suggested that she needed to keep her hope alive and that the universe was working behind the scenes to help her manifest most of what she desired.

When you’re in the thick of a crisis or a dark point in your life, it’s easy to want to give up hope, but know that you are an ocean of potential and you can do anything you set your mind to.

You have TWO Triple Dog Dare Challenges today.  Read the challenges and close your eyes to connect with what the challenge is asking of you.  Allow yourself to walk through the experience and be sure to capture as much as you can with your words as well as intent. 

Triple Dog Challenge #1: Write down all of your hopes and dreams.  Identify the big goals and then find ways to break down those big goals into smaller S.M.A.R.T. goals. Check this site out for more information on S.M.A.R.T goals: The Essential Guide to Writing S.M.A.R.T. Goals.

Triple Dog Challenge #2: Watch a motivational video on YouTube to kickstart the potential you have within you and transform that energy within so you can actually manifest your dreams into reality.
