Being in the moment a lot today...

Hope your day is off to a great start!

So, I was headed to work and then the first client scheduled was a “no-show” in other words, the person did not call, cancel, and was basically M.I.A. Then, the next person scheduled was contacted and then guess what? You know where I’m going with this… CANCEL!

This is the life of a counselor/therapist.

Well, not all the time, and  perhaps (sigh) not even some of the the time. So, I brushed myself off, not literally, and decided to run some errands. I laughed and discussed with Spirit this great lesson so early Monday morning.

Because you see, in my world, nothing, and I mean NOTHING happens on accident.

I laughed again… “ooh, I could catch up on some shows on my DVR, or ooh, I could go see what Michael’s has on sale…OR  I could be in the moment.”

 “Wait...where did that come from?”

 That was definitely NOT on my list. I was busy sprouting off in my mind all the things I had to do. So of course, instead of running all the errands or even doing the above mentioned, I decided to play with my camera phone and then guess what? (Chuckle)

The phone gets stuck…or freezes, whatever you call it; I was temporarily unable to use it.

I laughed again and said to myself “Ok, Monica, just be in the moment.”

 I thanked Spirit for the lesson and plan on being in the moment a lot today. How about you?



Change versus Re-Create…

I was speaking with a friend and she was told that in the simplest form, “if you don’t like how your life is going you get the opportunity to re-create it.”

I like that.  Do you notice how you can hear or see similar verbiage or meanings and yet it appears as if it is the first time ever experiencing said meanings?  How interesting…

How many of us are excited about change?

 Let’s take a moment and think about it. In your daily life, how do you handle change? Do you allow room for flexibility? Do the tiny hairs on your neck and arms stand up in “attention” when something in your schedule goes awry?

Well, as I embrace change I realize that I like to “change” words that have often frustrated me, words such as:



Timing-this one is growing on me that’s why it’s not in all caps

TESTS-of any kind

 SUFFERING-need I say more?

 FAVOR-what’s the point of this?

And now CHANGE!

There, I said it. I guess I really don’t like the word. This word has a negative connotation for me. It’s like; get ready for the impending doom. (Cue creepy organ music-dum, dum, da-dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum dum…DUM!)

Yes, I do try to go with the flow and allow, but I am Spirit having a human experience which can make it a little tough!

To illustrate, very soon, I will be switching my shared office space with an ah-mazing massage therapist in to a bigger, more spacious, office right across the hall. Yay! I know, I am excited beyond belief, but this darn change thing has taken me for a loop, I guess I have allowed that too! At any rate, my nervous excitement can feel petrifying and I find myself “practicing what I preach” a whole heck of a lot more!

Now, I get to tell myself “If you don’t like it then you can re-create it.” We all get do-over’s! What a relief, but then you may ponder or problem solve in your head “but, I don’t want to go through this again, I am too tired.” I know, my brain does the same thing, but referring back to my previous blog of   abundance = choices I talked about the same thing, so we can choose and re-create over and over and over again this, however; does not mean that we have to suffer or be challenged in the process. I t does not mean that the task at hand calls for arduous-laden work.

So, The Clarity and Balance Holistic Center is accepting new clients for individual counseling and couples counseling, intuitive mentoring, intuitive readings, classes, workshops, energy work, retreats, and much more!

So, if you don’t like it, Re-create it!





Who were you in the womb?

Is this a strange question? I’d like you to take a closer look. Who were you meant to be in the womb?

Fascinating, right?

Recently, I was journaling about how Spirit views my birth and the stuff that came up; I’ve got to tell you was remarkable and simply breathtaking.

Okay, I was given this assignment to write about my presence on earth since inception until now from Spirit’s point of view. {As an aside: The reference of “Spirit” is my definition of God, All-knowing, Universe, Mother, Father, Allah, Jehovah, Goddess, Source, etc.}

I was truly amazed at the perspective; it literally brought tears to my eyes. So, I challenge you to do the same thing!

First, find a quiet place, maybe a bookstore, or your favorite park, or even your bedroom at home and pick up a pen or pencil and start writing. Wait… actually, you’ll want to set the intention to allow whatever to come up in your mind to be directly relayed on the page, much like a dictation.

Next, take a couple of deep cleansing breaths and go! This is Spirit’s view of you, not your Ego’s, your inner child’s, or even your most authentic self, just allow. Please be careful to not objectify what you have written. In other words, judging your work with name-calling and such; just be with it, and again, allow.

On another note, it took me almost three weeks to write. I would sit down to try to journal and nothing came out. Perhaps resistance of “not getting it right” but that’s just it, there is no wrong or right. However, there is one exception. If the information that you receive feels negative and critical, chances are, the ego, slipped in and began dictating. Simply stop and come back to it. That’s why I find it helpful to set an intention of communicating with Spirit prior to writing so that your ego does not have to protect or ensure your safety as you are not in any harm or danger.

So, are you up for the challenge? I guarantee, you won’t be disappointed.
