Moving on Up

The theme song from The Jefferson, Moving on Up, was the song we all sang when we entered our new home this past weekend. Yep, David & I now have a house of our own to co-create and habituate, together, as husband and wife.

In January of this year, when David moved in to the house with me, it was a small 700 sq. foot beach house, 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom. Perfect when it was just Chants & I, teeny for us newly-weds. We craved a larger house, one where we could spread out, decorate together, choose furniture and make a home. We actually meditated on this house and 5 weeks later, we manifested it.

This weekend, with the wonderful support of good friends, THANK YOU Rene, Stephanie, Amanda, Kali & Laiden, we moved to a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom single family house, twice the size of our last abode! We have a huge yard, 2 car garage, fireplace and large entertaining kitchen. It feels really good! We are thrilled and can hardly wait to have friends & family visit and come play, so hurry on over!!

BTW - David told me he really feels married now, living in a house like this, I guess, was the trigger. Pics to come!

Real Happiness

I have been submersing myself in personal development and spiritual growth with Paul Ferrini's work: Real Happiness. It is a 3 phase course, two of which I have completed, and a lifelong practice. Note...Just because I have taken 2 of the 3 phases, I am no where further along the path than my Spiritual Teacher Tom says "be vigilant!" And that is what I am. It is a constant process.

I was introduced to Paul's work by my friend Alisha. She has been around the Spiritual block, including working as Deepak Chopra's right hand person, and was turned on to the work by her Mom - all because she saw a radical shift in consciousness in her mom.

Real Happiness is based on the principal that no one and nothing external can make us happy. Happiness is an inside job and only ourselves can do the work. Now this may sound fundamental, and while I always got this intellectually, I still found myself relying on others and things for happiness.

Now that I am immersed in the work, I see the truth. I connect with my core self, divine unconditional love and feed my soul, knowing that no one, especially David can ever provide happiness the way I can do so for myself.

I love this work and highly recommend it to all. I have learned so much in so short of time. Here's one tidbit Ill share...when something triggers me, it has nothing to do with the other person, it always has to do with something inside of me that needs attention, love & healing. Ahhh, feels good to take the other off the hook and take responsibility.

Finally, I want to share how blessed I am to do this with David who too is so open and willing to do the work. Now while that makes me happy, even if he chose to not do the work, I still can be happy!
