Labor Day 2014 - Holidays are Sacred


I love that the “Brits” call a vacation, a holiday. So often when people spend EVERYDAY rushing around, their days comprised of mostly work, chores, errands and bills that fill in the time between daylight and dust. Then they pop home and either jump in the shower, get dressed and are off to yet another place for the evening or make dinner and crash on the couch falling into distraction in front of the TV.  Even on vacation, Americans fill in every moment of their time-off until they're exhausted when they return back home,  needing a holiday from their holiday. Interesting, right?

A holiday is a day without work and is supposed to be a day of relaxation and enjoyment. Let's take Labor Day for example. It's a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country. (wikipedia)

I believe a ‘Holi-day,’ is a sacred time to recharge your battery, find your inner peace and appreciate this wondrous life that we are so blessed with. When we get a chance to relax and recharge we are more fully connected to what is in our hearts.

When I spend time in a new place exploring the culture, the architecture, nature, music, etc., or enjoying quiet times with friends,  I always save time to be by myself , even for a little while to reflect and reconnect to that pure love and am in a state of total bliss, a space of peace, unconditional love, joy and compassion as I venture away from distractions like PC and TV. 

So, for the love of all that is good for you, keep YOUR wholeness or holiness in your holiday. Stop rushing around and continuing the distraction. If you cannot take a vacation, make 20 minutes a day, your vacation, your Holi-day and take this precious time to relax, de-stress and be at peace and allow unconditional love to flow into your heart. Allow your mind to become calm and serene and focus on the present. Allow your heartbeat to slow so blood can drench and rejuvenate your cells and balance your hormones. Your body, mind and soul will be delighted by the change. 

Wishing you Love this day and always,
LeeZa Donatella

Feelings of Accomplishment


What a great feeling we have when we've accomplished something!

In the middle of things you may not be feeling so confident about its completion, thinking that you're never going to find a way see the finish.

Although you might have been pulling your hair out, know that there is light at the end of the tunnel.  

It's that sense of calm and peace as you complete the last little bit of fine tuning on a project, list of items or that goal that you've set for yourself, after a job well done that makes you realize how much it was worth doing. 

Wishing you a calm and peaceful conclusion to your projects,

Tribute to Robin Williams


It was a huge loss when I heard the news that Robin Williams left this planet. He broke the boundaries, making us laugh out loud until we cried and helping us see the humor in our situation.

Robin, we wish you well on your etheric journey and thank you for what you have given all of us.

You will be missed!

A New Beginning (A Poem)


A New Beginning

Today is the first day of the rest of your life
So release your sorrows and all of your strife
It's a new beginning and one that is bright
That will carry you through the day and all of the nights

Rejoice my friend, for all is anew
So get out of your slump and stop feeling blue
Because great blessings have come, just for you.

Living with Blinders On


Even this spiritualist on some mornings wakes and has absolutely no idea what I'm doing with my life. What about you? Do you ever feel like this?

Do you ever wonder how you got to the point of life where you're at right now and scratch your head trying to figure out how you managed to get there?

And I 'm not talking about being at the bottom either. Several times in my life when I worked in corporate America and was at the top did I wonder how I got where I was and if I was doing what I was supposed to be doing in my life.

It begs the question how we get to certain places. Do we travel there with blinders on?
For me the answer is yes. I'm driven to continually move forward and most times those blinders allow me to focus and hit the ground running. Is that a good thing?

When we need to get something accomplished I would say that it is good in the short term, but overall the answer is a whopping no. 

Where blinders through life closes you off from the rest of the world. And that my dears is not healthy. They just keep you from seeing the whole picture and block out everything else except what is directly in front of you, like people and perhaps other potential experiences. 

You want to live your life in balance and those blinders offer nothing that resembles balance.

So, take off your blinders, and truly live.

Wishing you a day filled with sunshine,

When life hands you lemons....



Some people believe that all setbacks are catastrophic, when really they are just the universe helping you fine tune our plan. helping you see it from a different angle. 

Any setback is really just a small blip in the universal scheme of things. I just depends on how you look at it and how you react. Remember, the only thing that we have control over is our reaction.

You know the saying when life hands you lemons, make lemonade. So if you're going to make lemonade you should make the most delicious, sweetest lemonade that anyone has every tasted.

Have a day full of deliciousness,

I love Myself



How often can you honestly say that you love yourself?  The reason I ask is because in this world full of so many negatives, it's difficult to say this and really mean it.

Think about the parent who continually exposes their children to continual negative patterns, speech and behavior. Do you think that those children are going to love themselves? What we are exposed to during our developmental years has a profound effect on the rest of our lives

Take a look at CNN or "constantly negative news" as I call it. News television and most programing paint a pretty grim picture of life today and the future. As a society are we any less happy? I think the answer to that is a whopping YES. And if we're not happy, we certainly are not going to love ourselves.

I have only love and have compassion for everyone, even those who have not yet awakened and still judge others.  Will that mindset win me the lottery. I would love to think so , but if not I still sleep soundly and wake each morning with the sun singing and in love with the most important being in my world, ME.

If you are not loving yourself right now, take a moment to ask yourself why not.

Are you worried with others will think of you, say behind your back? 
I learned to shut off the negative and walk into that self love by believing that it is possible to have a future where I need no one's approval except my own. And I learned that lesson the hard way at the hand of someone who tried to destroy my self esteem as well as my reputation. It taught me that no matter what anyone else says, it is what I know to be true about myself that matters. Your reputation is merely what people think of you, BUT your character is who you really on and have to sleep with at night. If I can do that, darling so can you.

Are you lonely?
Work on cherishing those times that you are alone. Trust me, it's better to be content and alone than with someone and lonely. That kind of loneliness is actually worse than being by yourself.

When I'm feeling less than stellar I put on something I can sing to and I sing, LOUDLY. It doesn't matter if my voice sucks, I do it anyway. It always makes me get right back on track and is a start to loving the true self.  Give it a try and tell me what YOU think.

Wishing you a day with love,

Manipulating the Energy Around You


Did you know that we have more control over things than we think as we tune into our environment. We are all made of the same stuff, energy.

What if you knew that you could manipulate the energy around you. I have my own secret formula for achieving this. 

  1. I Know what I want 
  2. I Believe it's possible to achieve it
I always add is a third piece which is that I believe that I deserve it and will use it to make a difference for others, but that's just me.

With this concept, though, I've been able to do things that would leave most people scratching their heads.  The key here is to eliminate lower vibrations, like fear, doubt, desperation. Once you do that, anything is possible.

Not quite wrapping you head around this one?  Okay, perhaps that's a bit too much for you to conceptualize right now, so let's start with something that you can believe.

Yes, it's an experiment but in this case you are the scientist.  Is there something about yourself that you want to change? Now, there is no hard or simple here, everything is simple. You need to know that first. It's only hard if you BELIEVE that it's hard. It's those hard and fast lower vibrational beliefs that keep us where we are. 

Once you realize that old beliefs are keeping you back, then the door opens a crack . Believe in your soul that you can achieve absolutely anything your heart desires, and you are pushing that door wide open and you can get actually get what you're seeking.

Why not take some time alone, be present and think about it.  Just food for thought. 

Wishing you a day with a delicious experiment of exacting a change in your life,

Break Free from Terrorism


A terrorist is more than the people with guns that you hear about on the news on domestic or foreign soil. It could be anyone who promotes fear that keeps you from living your life.

Fear, that negative emotion that is on the opposite spectrum from love keeps us from vibrating that love that we truly are. 

There are terrorists close to home. We all know at least one terrorist. It's us, because when we are afraid to live our lives to the fullest, we are our own terrorist.

Do not let this happen to you. You break free from your inner terrorist when you let go of fear.


Wishing you a day filled with fearlessness and love,

Coexisting Energy


I had a conversation today with a retired electrician who understood the ebb and flow and controlled energy though man made devices.

Now, most of us know that you can change energy but cannot destroy it. As I sat outside in the darkness this evening I began to conceptualize energy in a different way. And I began seeing it differently. It brought me back to the first time I saw energy a few decades ago. I was in a darkened room and I began seeing the energy coming off my hands, like tiny cilia sparking this way and that.

Tonight I went outside in a place far from the city lights and I saw more energy in every square inch of darkness, and it light up the night sky. I realized that it had been there all along, but did not see it due to perceptual blindness. Not sure what that is? Perhaps this example will help:

Do you recall the example of the natives that stood on shore but it was only their shaman who saw the large ships as they anchored close by because it was the shaman alone who was open to the possibilities that some more could exist. 

Perhaps that was it for me when I realized that this indescribable sight that was initially several feet in front of me was now all around me,  ‘What is happening,’ I thought. ‘And what will I do with this new sight and knowledge?’

The short answer right now is, ‘I don’t know.’ The hopeful answer is to figure out a way to utilize it for the betterment of all.  Afterall we are coexisting energy. 

Wishing you a day filled with energetic and humanitarian ideas,

The Life of a Celebrity (Poem)



The Life of a Celebrity
How tough it must be to be a celebrity
With photos of plenty and no privacy.
Their love life is plastered all over the news.
Just like world disasters or coming typhoons.
I feel for these folks, the brunt of our jokes.
As their personal lives are scrutinized online.
If we just took the time and tried to be kind.
We would realize they have feelings just like us.
Give your favorite celeb a break, let them live their life
Without buying into the hype or the crap.
No offense TMZ, but I can’t stand the sleaze.
Why not try showing the good things they’ve done.
More celebs support the arts and charities round the globe
For this and their talent we should commend.
Instead what makes us take that fated second look
Are their mistakes that top the lists on Facebook
So next time your sip your morning brew 
And a celeb hits the news, just stop and remember one thing
Put yourself in their shoes for a second or two cause
Guys, their only human just like me and like you.


Why not just post a nice note to your favorite celebrity's Twitter page instead.

Blessings and love to you this day,

Live in the NOW to Create YOUR Tomorrow


As I rise with the sun I know that it's going to be a great day. 

Why?

Well it's not because the leprechauns left a pot of gold at my doorstep, I was a pound lighter on the scale or got younger overnight. I checked. 

It's because I know that everyday is a new beginning. Every morning when we rise we leave yesterday behind. We only have to look forward to today. 

People, the future is right in front of you. It's right now.

Long past are the days where I beat myself up when I rise for what I did not accomplish yesterday. I look only to today and what I can get done. I don't dream about tomorrow, I live in the now and create my tomorrow.

Try it and you will see, just how wonderful today can be.

Sending you a day filled with promise,

LeeZa Donatella

Calling in your Soulmate


I received an interesting question a few days ago from a woman who wanted information on a way to smudge to get a husband. It made me think long and hard before answering about how you find that one true; the one with whom you spend hours in long passionate embraces where the kisses are as sweet as the ripest peach. Ah, how delicious!

I think the question says a lot about how we define ourselves. Personally, I’m enjoying being single right now. I get the entire bed, no one is snoring, I don’t have to worry about morning breath and I have the freedom to go where I please when I please.  

Since, not everyone is in that same place, I’m sharing all the steps right here; one of my little secrets:

Know You are Worthy of It All
First I wrote the article Feelings of Worthiness(Video) because if a woman is seeking a man she has to know in her heart that she is the most beautiful creature on the planet and should not settle for someone who doesn’t realize this.  I even put myself in front of a camera, no makeup just to prove that point.  We don’t need accoutrements, we are already stunning right out of the package.

Smudging
Smudge Your Space for Release
Smudging is used as a way to purify your space and yourself. I think that if you are seeking your soulmate or want to attract a husband, it’s certainly a great place to start by becoming clear.
First, use sage to smudge your space.

Read my article called Moving Forward after a breakup  that explains about attachments from past relationships. It will help you clear the energy of your past relationships out of your personal space and self.

I am going to assume that you are open to a universal pray and I am going to assume that there is still some stuck energy from a past relationship in there. If it were me, I would say the following when smudging your space:

“I ask God, and all the heavenly spirits to work with me today to clear this house. Let it free from _Your Ex-s Name’s___ energy as I release him with love and become a place where my new beloved, my soulmate feels comfortable spending time.”

As you go through the space, following the instructions I provide in my article, you can say the following:

“This is a space of love and light where I free _ Your Ex-s Name’s___ energy and my new beloved feels welcome and comfortable.”

Smudge Yourself for Release
Then smudge yourself, I would first use Sage and say the following.
“I am a being of love and light, free from _ Your Ex-s Name’s___ energy, clear and strong and am worthy of finding true love with my soulmate.  

Smudge Yourself to Call In Your Soulmate
I would buy a small amount of Palo Santo and smudge yourself again. It doesn’t have to be in the same day.  You can use this phrase.

"I am a being of love and because I love myself unconditionally, I am clear to attract my true love, a soulmate who wants a committed relationship."

The List (one of the most important steps)
After you do all the above, then please do take a look at one more thing; my article called, How to Attract a Soulmate. It has the last 3 steps and are well worth the comic read.

I send to you love and encouragement in finding him, the man who will jump over tables in the waiting lounge at the airport just to get a glimpse of you; the one who sees you from the other side of the subway platform and races up and down the stairs to get to the other side to ask you out before your train arrives. Attract your Soulmate. You are the one. How to get a husband

Feelings of Worthiness (Video)



Today I was reminded once more about how women view themselves when I received a letter help from a gal across the country.  As I read through it I saw it as a desperate cry for assistance based on feelings of unworthiness and low self-esteem.  


With the shift to a patriarchal society millenniums ago, women have been made to believe that they are the weaker sex, frail and inferior and must sacrifice their happiness for the sake of all others.  It has created a society where women have low self worth and esteem issues.  

For once and for all gals, wake up. We are women, strong, intelligent and mighty. We can accomplish anything we set our mind to. And we are worthy of a love so great with a partner that cherishes us. 

Below is a quick video I put together.



I also teach a lecture/workshop on Reclaiming Your StrengthDo not settle for mediocrity. .

Wishing you a powerful love filled day,

Let go of your fears and Start Living YOUR Dream


So often when I speak to people about how I gave away most of my belongings in the last year to basically live off the grid, volunteering in different parts of the world while writing, they look at me and say things like "I could never do that," or "I wish I had the courage." 

At the beginning of my journey, the universe presented with the below Patrick Overton quote on a chalk board in a rustic inn in northern California. It brought tears to my eyes as I read it. I carry that quote with me to remind me of how far I've come.


"When you walk to the edge of all the light you have and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown, you must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for you to stand upon or you will be taught to fly.”  

Some people live their entire lives wanting to do things, but they never take that first step into the unknown because of fear.   

Let me let you in a little secret. I was petrified as I left the comfort of my prior life and routine as I dared to take my life in a different direction.  But I was more afraid to continue to live in the homogenized 2-by-2 world when I had the overwhelming calling to serve others. I was not sure how long I would have, and this may have been my only shot so I took that chance.  And as I journey, the universe provides me with more delicious quotes, like this one from Eleanor Roosevelt that has kept me going: 

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” 

I'm not positive that we have more than one life, so I have to make this one count. I am no longer willing to settle for what I don't want, just because it is more convenient.  I am no longer willing to settle for NOT living so I jumped out of my comfort zone. 

In the beginning it was a matriarchal world with women guiding the planet in peace and love. Society has messed with women in past millenniums, making them believe that they are frail and inferior and must sacrifice their happiness for the sake of all others. Well, let me set the record straight RIGHT NOW.  We are strong and do anything and don't need to define ourselves through others think of us. 

What you think of yourself, that's what really matters.  

So I say to you, take a chance and live life. Let go of your fears and feel good about you as you follow your passion and live your dream. When you do anything is possible!

Wishing you a day filled with breaking free from fear,
